“Your bookshelf may be part of the problem,” NPR warned on Saturday. The article chided white Americans for purportedly ignoring literature written by racial minorities, and therefore failing to understand “issues of racism and prejudice toward the disenfranchised.”
National Public Radio wants everyone to burn every book they own written by “white people.” The progressives are too snooty to put their censorship in such “crass” terms though. “Decolonizing your bookshelf” is all “about actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas.” Anyone who reads John Grisham or Danielle Steel is a slave whipping plantation owner in disguise.
Not only do liberals want to burn down police stations, dollar stores, and upscale shopping malls, they want to torch each and every book written by “white people.” Don’t use coal to heat your home, that’s not green enough. Instead, throw a few Ray Bradbury novels on the fire and you’ll soon be up to a toasty 451 degrees Fahrenheit.
You can start “decolonizing your bookshelf” by yanking every single volume written by a white person. That way the liberal reader can actively resist and cast aside “the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long.” That’s why adult coloring books are so popular.
