Responding to a Washington Blade query about whether there would ever be a gay SCOTUS justice, someone named Ron Krise declared:
One of your readers said the country was run by “old white men” — but just where is the proof of that? We have a black president, a black attorney general, a female secretary of state and many cabinet chiefs or senior posts are filled by non-white males. Whites are now the minority in four states, including California. In 20 years, 17 states will be minority white. Most big city mayors are non-white male.
As a gay male, even I know that those so-called “old white men” (read: straight) have passed many laws that have benefited minority groups. Ask yourself, can you honestly see a Supreme Court totally black, female and Hispanic? I shudder at the thought. What’s next? A chairman of the Joint Chiefs bringing his sheep to work? A few cross-dressing senators on the floor filibustering? A group of drag queen representatives in the House? A blind 747 pilot? A deaf music critic? Lifeguards who cannot swim?
Why not, isn’t it their human/civil right? … The last real generation of whites are lying beneath the sands of Iwo Jima and Normandy. Now, most are pink with yellow stripes running down their backs.
Rome tried multiculturalism and look what happened to them. It’s only a matter of time.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that the media melange that saw fit to (attempt to) legitimize a gay prostitute who had made a (fake) name for himself by trying to pass as a journalist would run a letter like this.
Yet – I acually am still surprised…
and thoroughly disgusted.
