MSNBC, CNN, ABC and other news sources have pointed out the optics of 11 white men (Republican) questioning Ms Ford in the recent Kavanaugh hearing. Being a white male I resent the implication that my demographic somehow has less capacity to objectively participate in these hearings.

While I find most politicians to be pompous wind bags playing to the media and enjoying the sound of their own voice, there is no indication (I have seen) that being male or white should disqualify a person from any position of importance.

To quote Ann Coulter, “Can we please, for the love of God, drop the painfully trite, mind-numbing cliche about “white men,” as if somehow their whiteness makes evil even eviler?“.

While liberals are quick to point out the various inequities of many cultures would it not make more sense to prompt gender and race blindness.
