According to far-leftists, the only people who are capable of “racism” are those with lighter skin. And a recent college graduate from Drake University in Iowa has successfully petitioned Merriam-Webster Dictionary to redefine the word as such.
Kennedy Mitchum, a 22-year-old black woman, says that racism is a phenomenon exclusive to “white” people. She majored in “law, politics and society,” after all, so she would know, she claims.
Black people are always and only victims of racism, while white people are always and only perpetrators of it. It is really this black and white, according to Mitchum, who became triggered upon the realization that the Merriam-Webster Dictionary seems to imply that anyone can be racist.
“With everything going on, I think it’s really important that everyone is on the same page,” Mitchum told a local news station in her home state of Missouri about the “systemic racism” that she believes undergirds the very definition of the word “racism.”
Currently, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines racism as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities.” It adds that “racism” also includes the belief that “racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.”
Because the white race is inherently racist against the black race, according to Mitchum, this generic definition of “racism” has got to go. Instead, it will be redefined to target specifically white people, whom Mitchum believes are oppressors in American society.
As you may recall, this is the same thing that racist Sarah Jeong from The New York Times also believes.
“I basically told them that they need to include that there’s a systematic oppression upon a group of people,” Mitchum is quoted as saying. “It’s not just, ‘Oh, I don’t like someone.’”
Dear, Kennedy Mitchum: You’re a racist
Initially, Merriam-Webster told Mitchum to pretty much hit the road. But something changed, presumably due to outside black supremacist pressure, that caused Merriam-Webster to change its mind and agree to include Mitchum’s opinions as part of the official definition for the word “racism.”
“They were basically like, ‘Yeah, we’re not gonna change it because … we focus on literature,” Mitchum says about the first response she received to her petition. “The dictionary definitions have to come from literature, and they focus on the majority and the way they write and see racism.”
“And so I was just like, ‘It doesn’t make sense because the majority aren’t the people who are experiencing racism.’”
The idea that the “majority,” aka white people in Mitchum’s view, do not ever experience racism is both false and racist, which makes Mitchum’s claim ironic and hypocritical. But Merriam-Webster was apparently strong-armed into accepting it as part of the official lexicon.
“A revision to the entry for racism is now being drafted to be added to the dictionary soon, and we are also planning to revise the entries of other words that are related to racism or have racial connotations,” tweeted Drake in response to the news.
Merriam-Webster itself also admitted that “this revision would not have been made” without the persistence of Mitchum, who has single-handedly redefined the word “racism” to exempt everyone except for white people – which in and of itself is racist.
Since the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is only updated twice or maybe three times a year, Mitchum’s new definition will not appear until the next revision. In the meantime, every major news outlet is praising her for her “stunning bravery” in sticking it to the white man with her new definition.
“I think everyone really needs to realize what their strengths are and how they can contribute to the movement,” Mitchum added with pride. “And once they do that, I think we’re really going to be able to get some places.”
