Social Media My Ass May 6, 2013

The New York Times has once again proved it is not worthy of reading. Now, I’ll go so far as to say it’s not worth wrapping fish in either…it insults the fish. Nancy DiTomaso has penned an opinion piece blaming social media for the high unemployment rate among blacks. She posits the mind numbing idea that since whites rule the social media airwaves they ‘exclude’ blacks and therefore keep them from benefiting from the networking that she thinks is the key to white folks’ higher employment rates.

Nancy DiTomaso, the vice dean for faculty and research and a professor of management and global business at Rutgers Business School, is the author of “The American Non-Dilemma: Racial Inequality Without Racism.”

In another paragraph she preens her full liberal plumage by lamenting that this favoritism, gained through the social media network, cannot be called discrimination and thus cannot be legally challenged. Of course, leave it to the liberal to immediately seek to sue when they feel fairness has been breached and the cause has come at the hand of the evil white people who, in this case, invented a popular form of modern communication which just must be another conspiracy to keep the black community down once again.

Ms. DiTomaso must be so wracked with guilt because her nice paying job at a major college just isn’t fair to all the people of color out there who can’t tweet or Facebook or get LinkedIn. I swear, I couldn’t make this stuff up.

Even before I started reading the comments I immediately thought of all the Asians who have come to this country, many not speaking the language, and within a generation or less own their own business or are successful professionals.  Did all the Asians suddenly join Twitter when they moved here? Is there a secret Asian-only Instagram?

So Nancy, here’s what you need to do. Every other Friday go cash your paycheck. Then go down to Times Square and start handing out $100 bills to all the black people you see. Do this with every paycheck for the rest of your life. Wash that self-loathing away with every handout. I’m sure it will make you feel much better unfortunately it won’t make you any smarter.
