I scream, you scream, we all scream for justice...

Via Steve Sailer, I see the ever-vigilant Ben and Jerry are now deploying critical race theory in a cunning marketing strategy that seems to be based on hectoring their core demographic as immoral for failing to solve the world's most intractable problem, black dysfunction.

From their website:
Ever hear someone say something like, “Hey, wow, great news everybody! Racism’s over! We fixed it!”
[no, not once over a long lifetime]
 They’re genuinely excited that we elected an African-American president. They’ll tell you how the first mainstream black superhero character, Black Panther, just appeared in a big new movie. And by the way, P.K. Subban is a hockey star!  
Does anyone, anywhere speak the way these millennial scribes working up their obnoxious "explainer" pieces think they do? I'm always appalled.

It's always your "racist uncle" uttering commonplaces not heard since All in the Family (which represents the last, final stage in the intellectual development of anti-racism", years before the average SJW was born) or earnest college students asking to touch the nappy head of their black classmates as if they're exotics; even the praise they put in the mouths of their fellow, less enlightened goodwhites sounds embarrassingly fake.

Ben and Jerry's tacks a video jointly produced by MoveOn.org and Demos to the end of the article.


Demos is a neoliberal UK think tank started by a former "Marxism Today" editor and a policy hand from Tony Blair's cabinet:
Life after Politics offers the edited highlights of Demos, the think tank founded by Geoff Mulgan and Martin Jacques in 1993 to chart the course for a new kind of politics - sometimes called a postmodern politics - for the 21st century. Demos was founded as a self-conscious imitation of (and tribute to) the Institute of Economic Affairs, the mother of all modern think tanks, founded by Ralph Harris, Arthur Seldon and Mike Fisher in 1955 to find free-market solutions to what they saw as Britain's economic and social problems, known to their contemporaries as social democracy. The IEA survived on the fringes of politics for 20 years before their ideas were taken up with gusto by the Thatcherites and caused the IEA to flourish at the centre of politics during the 1980s.
