If you read the The New York Times, then there’s a word that you’ll probably come across:
Just last month, columnist Michelle Goldberg used it when she asked whether President Trump was “causing white terrorism.” And in February, Goldberg said Rep. Rashida Tlaib “got in trouble for pointing out the obvious — the president is a bigot.” Tlaib has written articles for the Nation of Islam and subscribed to an Instagram account that compared Jews to rats.
It’s not surprising that folks at the NYT would focus so much on this subject; after all, there’s a reason why they know so much about racists.
They hired one.
In 2018, Sarah Jeong became their lead technology writer. Jeong says likes exploring the impact of technology on society. Something else she likes? Making elderly white people suffer:
She also enjoys dehumanizing whites by comparing them to dogs:
Jeong put out hundreds of racist tweets over several years, yet despite their worries about bigotry, the paper saw no reason to fire her. Twitter took no action either (aside from granting her verified status), although it did suspend conservative activist Candace Owens when she tweeted the same statements but replaced “white” with “black.”
In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed that his “four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” He preached that the value of one’s life didn’t depend on race, with “all of God’s children” deserving equal treatment.

That’s a beautiful vision. Sadly, the New York Times doesn’t seem to share it. Until folks there do, they should worry less about Trump supporters and more about their editorial board.
