The weird thing about the “rise of white supremacy” obsession the media has going right now is that they’re doing and saying things to put themselves so far on the opposite side of white supremacy that they end up becoming racist against white people, even if they themselves are white.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper is one such anchor who recently called the demographic decline of white people in America “exciting,” and then immediately mentioned how it would make white supremacists angry.

He said this during his show on Wednesday night while speaking with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed with Cooper and added that this is a positive development.

I’m not going to give any heed to the argument of what is and isn’t considered racism. Racism is racism, whether you’re racist to a black person or a white person.

And what we just watched was racism.

Cooper didn’t call the development “interesting,” or treat it with any kind of neutral or fact-based language. He called it “exciting.” That’s a word you use when talking about about a future event you’re looking forward to, like a concert featuring your favorite band or a vacation to a tropical location.

Despite its popularity right now, racism against white people is awful. The erasure of its culture should be considered bad just as it would be considered if any other culture were steadily being wiped off the map. If it were any other kind of race, you’d see days of appreciation or awareness pop up.

Cultures change, and that’s a natural thing that happens. Why it’s “exciting” to see white culture disappear, however, is sinister at its heart. You’re essentially applauding the disappearance of a people. If, for some reason, it were the Hispanic population that was disappearing from America and Cooper had called it exciting, he’d be tarred and feathered for his racism.

However, racism against whites is not only okay, but it’s also encouraged in today’s society. I find that awfully disturbing.
