The Atlantic: Great American Solar Eclipse is RACIST

61

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.

You can’t make this stuff up. The left is nuts. Batty, deranged, loco, loony but above all — evil.

And they call our sites “extreme.” SMH

American Blackout

A tour of the solar eclipse’s path reveals a nation that fought to maintain a different sort of totality.

Atlantic: The Eclipse is Racist, Solar System has Implicit Bias

August 20, 2017, By Daniel Greenfield:

Stop watching the eclipse. It’s racist.

If you want evidence that the American leftist cult has reached a point of fanatical unreason every bit as bad as the darkest of dark ages, here’s a sentence from the Atlantic’s piece on the eclipse.

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people. Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system.

Presumably.

We can’t rule out the possibility entirely. It’s presumably not the case. But you never know with white supremacy. It could be embedded in the very orbital trajectories of the solar system. We really need some intersectional astronomy to figure this one out.

The article is emblematic of the sort of deranged racially toxic revisionist history that fills American Studies. The formula is simple. X + Racism = topic. Take anything, link it to racism, write about it to show how racist America is.

Even an eclipse.

Oregon, where this begins, is almost entirely white. The 10 percent or so of state residents who do not identify as white are predominantly Latino, American Indian, Alaskan, or Asian. There are very few black Oregonians…

From Oregon, the Great American Eclipse will travel through Idaho and Wyoming. (It will catch a tiny unpopulated piece of Montana, too.) Percentage-wise, Idaho and Wyoming are even whiter than Oregon. And as in Oregon, but even more so, the few non-white residents of Idaho and Wyoming are not black—they are mostly Latino, American Indian, and Alaskan…

Err and so what?

The premise of the American left’s racist witch hunt for the last two generations is that if you can show black people aren’t doing somewhere or being something, then… racism.

Except Idaho, Wyoming and Montana are lightly populated. Period.

And they are more likely to have Latinos than black people for obvious geographical and commercial reasons. They’re rural areas with a lot more ranching.

Are we meant to feel guilty because Montana has more American Indians than black people? Is this a reflection on the eclipse’s internalized racism?

After Wyoming, the eclipse will go through Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri… Bruce Springsteen, after reading Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, wrote an album of songs too bleak for a studio, much less an arena… The album went platinum, and it is called Nebraska.

1. I figured that this revisionist garbage would at some point incorporate the ur-revisionist history of Stalinist America denier Howard Zinn.

2. There’s a green plant in my living room…  the flag of Saudi Arabia is green…. the wearing of the green… the Emerald City of Oz… Racism!!!!

The total eclipse will be visible from Lincoln, Nebraska, the state’s capital, which reports a black population of 3.8 percent. The city of Omaha has a greater black population, about 14 percent. It is home to many of the refugees from Africa and elsewhere that Nebraska has welcomed in recent years, many of whom now work in slaughterhouses and meatpacking plants. But Omaha is about 50 miles northeast of the path of totality.

The case for the implicit bias of the solar system is getting stronger than ever.

From Kansas, the eclipse goes to Missouri, still mostly bypassing black people, though now much more improbably…

Hmm… we really need a civil rights investigation of this eclipse.

Moving east, the eclipse will pass part of St. Louis, whose overall population is nearly half black. But the black residents are concentrated in the northern half of the metropolitan area, and the total eclipse crosses only the southern half.

The most obvious explanation is that the white racists conspired for the last few generations to keep black people out of the path of the eclipse. They didn’t want black people to enjoy the liberating powers of the eclipse.

Either that or Alice Ristoph is a race-baiting leftist lunatic.

We report. You decide.

…after Tennessee, the shadow regains some speed and travels over white people only again for a while

Ugh. White people.
