By perversely couching the right to discriminate against others in terms of freedom, conservatives knew they could rely on the relative ignorance of American voters to get their measure passed. Apparently, it is not out of order for the judge overseeing the civil case against organizers of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville to force Devin Willis, a plaintiff in the case, to give up the names of his friends during cross-examination by Christopher Cantwell, a neo-Nazi defendant who’s acting as his own attorney in the proceedings. It wasn’t outside of the law for the defense in the Arbery proceedings to seek a mistrial because Black pastors had the nerve to enter the courtroom, or a Black mother cried out with ancestral rage at pictures of her son’s murdered body. This wasn’t an organic response. The trees were originally made in response to the continued deforestation of Germany but continued to grow in popularity and availability across Europe and North America. The major online services, such as America Online (AOL), Prodigy and CompuServe, were the main way that ordinary people could connect and communicate with each other online. They are, however, way out of bounds of anything that anyone with a moral compass would define as justice.
Some of us would be able to take one whole inhalation if these white folks had to choke, just a little, on the bitterness of America’s brand of so-called justice. To hold sacred the vision of America’s slaveholding Founding Fathers and ensure a status quo of oppression is the everlasting legacy of this nation. Let’s perfect the model for the D-boys and street hustlers losing at America’s economic game first. The first step was inventing what became known as “color-blind freedom” to justify discrimination. The kit’s detailed scripts instructed Realtors to “focus on freedom” and avoid “discussion of emotionally charged subjects,” such as “inferiority of races.” This kit, weighing a pound and a half and distributed to the local real-estate board in every American city, provided form speeches, Q&As, and press releases for their cause. This idea of absolute individual rights was at the heart of how Realtors redefined American freedom.
You may want to read that language again, because it illustrates how American conservatives first co-opted the terminology of “freedom” by transforming it into an expression of individual rights-or so-called “freedoms”-in this case, a freedom (or license) to discriminate.
