Simon Deng was enslaved by Muslims in the Sudan. He suggests, via example, directly confronting our politicians over the Mosque at Ground Zero of the 9 – 11 attacks.
I ask if he is a racist or a culturist because the politicians have repeatedly smeared us as “bigots” and “racists.” People who lost family members have been infuriated by this tactic. And, the weakness of this charge against a black man who was brutalized and enslaved by Muslim overlords in Sudan makes my point – we are talking about culture, not race. And, if cultural diversity is real, multicultural celebrations of diversity blind us to important factors and culturism is necessary.
