EDITORIAL:         Getting Tired of Politicized U.S. “Racism”?

If it seems telling that the media and politicians spend so much time and the government so much money on a minority comprising some 13% of the U.S. population, it is. The imported Chinese laborers who built the railroads were treated arguably worse than the freed slaves and immigration from China was barred by the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act more than 30 years after the black slaves were freed. Those conditions underlie the rise of the Chinese ghettos often called Chinatowns. But the resident and eventually, immigrant Chinese have not dropped out of U.S. high schools and filled its prisons; they are instead increasingly subject to racial discrimination with the whites in order to offer preferences to blacks. Governments punish success, reward failure? That seems wrong; it is no less racial discrimination than a “Whites Only” sign. Nor has it led the African immigrants to equality with their Asian fellows. Worse, it is done by government in the name of equality, hypocrisy on steroids. Finally, it clearly doesn’t work. If the idea is to treat blacks like everyone else, then government has to exemplify treating them so, not simply reversing the direction of discrimination with Black Lives Matter/Antifa trashing and burning U.S. cities with tacit political pproval..
