Woke performance art has become a staple of our current mediasphere. But while it’s largely resided in political venues, National Geographic is now getting in on the act.

They released the results of their “Race Card” project, which sought to ask people to describe feelings on race in six words. As you can imagine, the victimhood was through the roof, and in some cases, appears to be patently ridiculous.

Here are a few examples.

After a frightening encounter with police right before entering college, Esayas Mehretab decided not to tell his parents, who had fled persecution in Ethiopia. But he discovered that keeping quiet about these challenges takes a toll.

The man in the picture above who describes living in a “white world” and being “exhausted” is from Ethiopia (or at least his parents are), a third-world country in Africa devastated by poverty and violence. Instead of showing any gratitude for the country that took his family in, gave him an opportunity to go to college, and to clearly move into a solidly middle-class lifestyle, he trashes it as a “white world.” There’s something about that kind of attitude that will just never sit right with me or many other people. Part of my family came here from the Middle East so I have personal experience with this dynamic and I just couldn’t imagine having that kind of attitude.

Also, note how vague the claim of a “frightening encounter” with police is. Was he pulled over? Was he detained? Did the police actually do anything wrong or were they just doing their jobs properly? If you are going to use that as a reason to paint the country as a “white world,” then at least explain yourself. Besides, this claim by people that they are literally “exhausted” by some nebulous racism they claim engulfs their lives comes across as overly dramatic. I’m sorry, but if you are “exhausted” because you think you live in a “white world” while going to college and finding a better life escaping from Ethiopia, seek professional help.
