National Humanities Medal Awardee Victor Davis Hanson Slams The Left For Their Vague Assumptions On Racism

Published

Famed conservative commentator, classicist, and military historian Victor David Hanson recently stated that the leftists only offer vague assumptions to back up their claims that America is a racist society. They have never provided any form of data to prove their assertions while their insistence that our nation espouses racism can be debunked mathematically using statistics.

“A minority that makes up a little more than 12 percent, does not elect a president of the United States who’s Black. A racist society would not allow that. They would not allow Kamala Harris to be vice president. You wouldn’t have a race in North Carolina where both the Republican and Democratic candidates are Black,” Hanson stated on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“This is not the generation that came out of the civil rights movement. Ralph Abernathy, Bayard Rustin, Martin Luther King, that were assimilationists, integrationists, the content of our character. They actually felt and experienced terrible racism, and they came out of impoverished circumstances,” Hanson continued.

“We’re listening to some of the most privileged people in the United States. LeBron James, Meghan Markle, Oprah Winfrey. And then we have Mr. Kennedy or Cornel West. They all grew up in upper-middle-class families. They were the epitome of the American dream. They had equal opportunity. They were very successful. It’s a very different phenomenon,” Hanson added.

Hanson also blasted former first lady Michelle Obama’s past statements that she fears that her children will become victims of bigotry for their skin color, in spite of being born into an affluent family.

“”[Michelle] Obama, what does she do? She ventures out of her 14 million dollar Martha’s Vineyard estate on vacation from her 12 million dollar Washington, D.C. estate. And then she tells us that her daughter’s in danger walking out on the street,” Hanson said. 

“We were told that if we just had African-American mayors or attorney generals or chief police and that doesn’t seem to help. And so we have existential problems that need to be addressed. And Michelle Obama’s blaming society that’s endangering her daughters when she knows and she wisely knows that she’s not going to move back to her Chicago mansion. That would be very unwise given the state of safety in Chicago. And yet nobody talks about these existential problems. And so this race, race, race, it’s an abstraction among the elite. It’s not the concerns of the actual poor and marginalized people in the inner city,” Hanson elaborated.
Hanson is a professor emeritus of Classics at California State University, Fresno and was even awarded the National Humanities Medal by President George W. Bush. He has also shared his wisdom through the pages of National Review, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times.
