New York Times black reporter pens racial attack on white women

New York Times reporter Greg Howard, has written an essay blaming "racist" white women for not moving out of his way because he is a "feared black man" in the paper’s “Race/Related” newsletter.

    “Why only and specifically white women? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because they’ve been taught that they should fear black men, and that any acknowledgment of black men can invite danger?”

    In his essay “Was That Racist,” Greg Howard argued that white women forced him “off the sidewalk completely” and not getting out of his way.

    “In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not,” Howard writes, accusing all white women of being systemically racist.

    “Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead, through me, if not quite at me,” he continues in the same bigotted rant.

    “When white women are in my path, they almost always continue straight, forcing me to one side without changing their course. This happens several times a day; and a couple of times a week, white women force me off the sidewalk completely. In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious,” Howard said.

    “Do they refuse to acknowledge me because to alter their route would be to show their fear? Do they not see me? Can they not see me?” he asks, clearly in the grips of some racial paranoia about the city’s overcrowded sidewalks.

    These encounters anger Howard because “in these instances I feel small…I also get out of the way because, as a black man, I’ve learned that bodychecking, bumping or even rubbing against a random white woman can be personally hazardous.”

    Dan Gainor, vice president for business and culture at the Media Research Center, told Fox News that the essay was racially biased. “Can you imagine The New York Times running an essay where a white woman complains about how African-American men are rude and then blames it on race? The paper and the author would be skewered,” Gainor said.

    “The left’s new default is that white people are doing wrong at every turn — even walking down the street, he said. “The Times promotes the typical liberal standard. Everything left is right and everything right is wrong.”

    “He is confused,” Fox Sports 1 African-American host Jason Whitlock said of Howard. “He loves the fruits of white America, but he wants to hate the tree that produced them.”

    Howard’s essay drew fierce criticism: “A gentleman would let women have right of way not play victim,” singer and songwriter Joy Villa tweeted.

    Breitbart reporter Adam Shaw shared a screenshot of the piece: “The @nytimes was OK with one of their reporters publishing this diatribe about ‘white women’.”
