Ho, Hum: Paul Ryan Accused By Chattering Classes of Being Racist

Paul Ryan said, in an interview with Bill Bennet, “We have got this tailspin of culture in our inner cities, in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.”

For saying this, the left and the media (but I repeat myself) have been insisting he's a racist for ten straight days.

Rich Lowery has dug up some more racist quotes.

What notorious racist said the following? “Fewer young black and Latino men participate in the labor force compared to young white men. And all of this translates into higher unemployment rates and poverty rates as adults.

“In troubled neighborhoods all across this country—many of them heavily African American—too few of our citizens have role models to guide them.”

“We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households…. We know the statistics—that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison.”

“We know young black men are twice as likely as young white men to be ‘disconnected’—not in school, not working.”

Have you figured out which incorrigible dog-whistling racist made such vicious comments about inner city dysfunctions?

Hint: His initials are "BHO," and when he said things like this, he was hailed as a truth-telling, post-partisan Savior of Mankind.

Related: David Harsanyi questions the reductive, racial claim made by progressives that Asians vote Democratic mostly because they're upset by "microaggressions" that people they psychically know to be conservative lodge at them, "microaggressions" sometimes taking the form of the question, "Where were you born?"
