Leftist race-baiters have decided a video of a man rescuing a bunny from the California fires can best be viewed from a racist lens.
Declaring that the video shows “everything wrong with whiteness,” a GQ columnist tells us that the BBC video – showing a man identified as Caleb Wadnad rescuing a bunny from the wildfires is somehow a metaphor for how white people behave.
Wadnad is editor of the “digital magazine” Very Smart Brothas in addition to his gig at GQ. The site has stories with headlines like “The World’s 10 Greatest Enunciating-Ass Negroes, Ranked” and “10 Things White People Don’t Really Seem To Give A Fuck About,” so we don’t expect too much.
Still, Wadnad’s column, titled “The Video of the Man Saving the Rabbit From the Fire Captures Everything Wrong With Whiteness in 30 Seconds,” is beyond lunacy. It makes the argument that Wadnad rescuing the bunny from flames shows that white people care more about animals than African-Americans, The Daily Callerreports.
Wadnad’s dramatic rescue depicts “everything good about humanity,” Young writes. “But when witnessing the act and the fawning over the bunny rescue, I can’t help juxtaposing the feelings expressed about this bunny with the feelings generally expressed when black people are in grave danger.”
I’m not going to pretend that I understand something as complex as global warming, especially when I still don’t even understand why my toaster heats Pop-Tarts up quicker than Eggos, but I do know that colonialism and aggressive industrialism have had an adverse effect on our environment. And I also know that this is a byproduct of manifest destiny—an existential edict ingrained in white people where they believe everything belongs to them.
Wadland said that – apparently – white people will do anything to destroy black people and all people of color.
Nothing is off-limits. Not the rain forests, not your land, not the hair sitting on top of your head. And that apocalyptic hellscape was executive-produced by the same company that brought us timeless classics such as the trans-Atlantic slave trade and gerrymandering and redlining and other innocuous-sounding terms for really fucked-up things and The Help.
The act was the “whitest thing” he’s ever seen.
“I do know that whether it’s rabbits, cats, dogs, horses, cows, sloths, chickens, spiders, birds, elephants, penguins, polar bears, monkeys, whales, eels, elephants or velociraptors, the lives and well-being of animals seem to be considered—by many white Americans—much more precious and much more deserving of protection and care than the lives of black people,” added Young.
But let’s forget about the big-picture issues for a moment. Instead, let’s focus on the actual act. It was brave. It was fearless. It was valiant. It was altruistic. It was everything good about humanity. But when witnessing the act and the fawning over the bunny rescue, I can’t help juxtaposing the feelings expressed about this bunny with the feelings generally expressed when black people are in grave danger.
So while the rest of the world admires a man for his simple act of bravery and humanity, liberal race-baiters will see something sinister, racist, and evil.
And there’s just something wrong with them.
