When Vibrants Collide

This ad has been been making the social media rounds recently and progs are scandalized-scandalized I tell you!

From an article discussing the ad:

Just minutes before his birthday, Masonda Ketanda Olivier was beaten to death. The Congolese national was confronted by a mob of men late at night last Friday in New Delhi and killed. Police said the incident was a dispute over the hiring of an autorickshaw; Olivier’s friend, an Ivorian national, said it was a clear hate crime, with racial epithets repeatedly invoked.

Further:

In China, it’s a similar picture. In a 2013 account, an African-American English teacher recounted his students complaining about their instructor: “I don’t want to look at his black face all night,” one said.

And:

Africans, whether on university campuses or elsewhere, across the country have also been subject to attack and abuse. Growing merchant communities in certain cities, such as in the southern metropolis of Guangzhou, rub up against a wider population that is ethnically homogenous and largely unfamiliar with the diversity and history of black populations elsewhere.

And we’ll leave this one here too, lest the white population decline triumphalists find themselves tempted to salve their troubled souls with palliative thoughts of a future America full of pacific beiges & browns living together in perfect harmony.

It’s high time that race denialists and diversity shills face two realities:

  1. A less white world will be a substantially more conflict ridden one.
  2. Diversity + proximity = war, always and everywhere.
