“It’s not About Race” and the Briar Patch
So Brer Rabbit said to Brer Fox, “Tar me apart if you want to. Do anything to me. Just don’t throw me in that there briar patch.” That way, Brer Rabbit got Brer Fox to throw into the briar patch, which is just where he wanted to go.
Naturally Brer Fox was laughed at and considered an idiot.
Every rich old man hears his family say, “It’s not about the money, it’s about YOU” so many times his ears get numb. He knows very well that the minute he dies his Loving Family is going to rip itself apart over his money.
When a whole society keeps screaming, “It’s not about race,” the person who BELIEVES that will be seen as an idiot.
The fact that this is Mainstream Opinion just tells you how far down Mainstream Opinion has sunk.
