Never shy about crashing a party — or a funeral — they reared their heads again when comedian Steve Martin paid tribute to his friend Carrie Fisher, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 60.

“The white race is the cancer of human history,” insisted writer Susan Sontag in 1967. Since then, anti-white race-hatred has gained enough currency to breed “white-privilege” theory, a college professor expressing a desire for “white genocide,” and “Problem of Whiteness” courses in academia — the latest example being one disgorged by the University of Wisconsin.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was certainly right when she said that “we do not have a voting system we can trust.” And her aborted recount in Michigan helped prove it, revealing that more than one-third of Detroit voting machines recorded more votes than voters.

In a recent interview, Barack Obama expressed the shopworn belief that America has not, by any means, “overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism."
