I Guess The Old Accusation Wasn't Selling Well

The value in calling someone a racist has, crying-wolf-style, been devalued so much that it's lost its currency.  So the race-baiters have a new banner to raise:  racism without racists.  And the following quote from the linked article is painful to read:
"Colorblind racism is the new racial music most people dance to," he says. "The 'new racism' is subtle, institutionalized and seemingly nonracial."
That whirring sound you hear is Dr. King spinning in his grave, and logicians are going insane trying to understand "colorblind racism".

These are the folks who think it bitterly unfair that they couldn't partake in the glorious moral crusade that was the Civil Rights era. They're stuck with trying to recreate the conditions for a modern-day Civil Rights era so they can display their moral elevation.

That's why any racial disparity is necessarily evidence of racism.

It's just gotta be racism so that folks like the author of the CNN piece has an excuse to say mean things about people who can't be bothered to cater to the author's self-indulgence.
