Tim Graham: Once Again, the Left Gets Away with Racism with Piece Titled ‘Whiteness Is a Pandemic’


The Root is obviously a hyperbolically racial magazine, since its slogan is “The Blacker the Content the Sweeter the Truth.” It’s not surprising that it frequently publishes writer Damon Young, author of the memoir “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker.” We’re told he asked important and dramatic questions like “Will this white person’s potato salad kill me?” Young’s memoir was honored as “required reading” by NPR and celebrated by Entertainment Weekly and The Washington Post, among others. He became a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times. The paranoia overflowed from this self-described “professional black person” on St. Patrick’s Day. Young posted a piece titled “Whiteness Is a Pandemic.”
