Add MAPS to the Long Leftist List of Racist Things
The list of racist things grows daily with Leftists.
Where did we leave off?
The Tea Party is racist. Though they can’t seem to locate that elusive Tea Party racist, the Left continue to claim racism in the ranks of the most prolific citizen group since the founding of the nation.
When Obama was “racistly” elected, disagreeing with America’s first “black” president was considered racist. So what you would have disagreed with a white version of Obama, you’re still racist if you didn’t succumb to his tortuous administration.
But racism sunk to new lows, and we learned that math is racist:
A math education professor at the University of Illinois argues that white privilege is bolstered by teaching mathematics.
“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as whiteness,” Rochelle Gutierrez wrote. “Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as white.”
But it gets better.
As it turns out, food is racist.
Did you know that “farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized”?
According to two geology professors at San Diego State University, farmers’ markets are contributing to “environmental gentrification.”
And if you think that’s kooky, check out this next racist thing: friendship.
Well, interracial friendship, that is.
A black professor in a New York Times op-ed appeared to rule out friendship with white kids for his children because of President Trump.
“Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people,” Ekow N. Yankah, a professor of law at Cardozo wrote.
One of my favorite racisms is “hard work”.
Professor Angela Putman of Pennsylvania State University gleaned from an academic paper that the notion of “If I work hard I can be successful” is an ideology of “whiteness.”
Certain excepts from her paper include:
“Angela Putman conducted a study to critique and examine “ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” Her resulting conclusion published on Thursday was that “meritocracy”, or the belief that people should rise based on the fruits of their own labor, is a “white ideology.” In her mind, this “white ideology” is unfortunately widely accepted in academia.
Putman believes that it is somehow a bad thing to teach students personal responsibility. Emphasizing a collectivist mindset, Putman puts forth the idea that Americans are falsely “socialized to believe that we got to where we are… because of our own individual efforts.”
“Until students learn the hidden dangers of believing in the value of hard-work and a positive attitude, “whiteness ideologies may be reproduced through a general acceptance and unchallenging of norms, as well as through everyday discourse from a wide variety of racial positionalities.”
Think this professor ever picked cotton in 100 degrees?
And the insane list continued, “Merry Christmas” is racist, as is the solar eclipse, pollution, the national anthem, the electoral college, and so on.
Now we learn that cartography is racist. Yes, MAPS are racist!
Here I thought they were just useful items for knowing where the hell you are, or for knowing how to get where you want to go.
Maps are racist: “Historically, maps have been used to colonize and conquer – and are primarily created by white men”.

Who knew every time you opened up Google Maps you were condoning such racism and bigotry!
All the whining of the Left proves is they see racism everywhere. And when they aren’t seeing it, they hear the dog whistle of racism.
But is it any wonder that Leftists see racism everywhere.
The commander-in-chief of race pimps, Jesse Jackson appeared on Fox Sports where he called the sports industry racist and oppressive.
“And in many ways it is oppressive. To go from picking cotton balls to picking up footballs and basketballs without freedom is not very much progress,” the civil rights activist stated.
And multi-millionaire basketball player LeBron James is happy to perpetuate this kind of insanity:
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough,” he said.
“We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African Americans until we feel equal in America.”
Mind you, this man just made $35 million from a $1 million investment in a casual pizza food chain. So, if LeBron’s salary represents slave wages, then where can the rest of America sign up to be a slave?
Time to call these race pimps out!
