Gotcha: Elizabeth Warren’s Name Found on Incredibly Racist Letter

Categories: Politics

The bigotry of low expectations, last observed earlier this month when the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History announced plans to set up a display in race-baiter Colin Kaepernick’s honor, has emerged yet again, courtesy of Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren and seven of her Senate peers.

In a letter submitted last week to Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlie, the eight senators made the case that the FDA should ban menthol cigarettes from the free market because of its effects on young blacks.

“(T)he tobacco industry has a long history of targeting menthol cigarettes to African Americans and in particular African American youth, through strategic marketing and promotional materials,” Warren and her colleagues wrote.

“These actions have resulted in significant health disparities in communities of color, with African Americans suffering the greatest burden of tobacco-related mortality of any ethnic or racial group in the United States.”

While the data the senators cited is accurate, a couple glaring problems stick out like a sore thumb, the first of them being that such rhetoric would never be tolerated from conservatives. For example, whenever conservatives cite statistics pertaining to black crime, leftists immediately begin accusing them of being racists.

To be clear, facts unto themselves can never be either racist or bigoted, and the same applies to the facts cited by Warren and crew, as well as the facts about black crime frequently cited by conservatives. That being said, it would be nice if liberals could one day admit this.

The second and more troubling problem with the senators’ letter is what it implicitly states, which is that these eight Democrats think black people are too irresponsible and stupid to decide for themselves whether or not to consume tobacco — particularly menthol-flavored tobacco.

It’s racism, plain and simple, but a more subtle form of it — namely, the soft bigotry of low expectations, which black conservative Lloyd Marcus once defined as the belief that you simply “can’t expect much from blacks.”

“They send us an underlying message that you poor inferior blacks are not as smart as us compassionate whites,” he wrote two years ago, describing the general attitude of leftist elitists such as Warren. “Therefore, you need to be taken care of.”

One thing to note in particular is that neither of the Senate’s black Democrats, New Jersey’s Cory Booker and California’s Kamala Harris, took part in crafting the letter.

Another is that Warren is open to the legalization of marijuana, which poses far more health risks to everyone (not just blacks) than tobacco.

Apparently, the concepts of speaking consistently and treating blacks with respect are unknown to Warren, who, as a reminder, is the same deceitful hack also known for claiming without proof to be of American Indian ancestry.
