On Fox News, Bill O’Reilly moaned that “the white establishment is now the minority.”
O’Reilly, 63, added that the new majority was composed of people who “want stuff.” As opposed to older white men, all of whom have signed a pledge never to accept veteran benefits, Social Security or Medicare.
“It’s not a traditional America anymore,” O’Reilly sadly concluded.
Almost everybody thinks of the world of their youth as the traditional world. In the future, today’s teenagers will be looking back and mournfully declaring that traditional America was a place where folks really knew how to Twitter. Still, it’s unseemly to identify the true America as the one where your group ran everything. ...Gail Collins
Will we miss those white men? Or is it that most of us are already at the point where we no longer notice whether they're white or not? Turn off Fox News and they pretty much don't exist, not so much as you'd notice.
