Privileged Ignorance

by matttbastard

Over @ Shakesville, Portly Dyke (h/t) examines howwe are being systematically de-sensitized to [racial] issues by the MSM.

An excerpt:

People of color may have a better resistance to this insidiously toxic media message, as they are subject to the actual results of racism every day — and radical white progressives may (I said “may”) have an increased immune-response to this stuff as compared to whites of other political/sociological persuasions. I suspect, though, that all of us have slowly conceded corners of our resolve to the onslaught.

It happens so slowly — so incrementally, that we don’t notice at first — that’s why I love montages — because when you put all the messages together, you realize that…the indoctrination has been huge, and intentional, and vile — and not subtle at all.

Please make sure to read the whole damn thing (including and especially the comments).
