I see people getting into the weeds here.
I have a shirt that says:
"Let's eat Grandma!
Let's eat, Grandma!
Proper punctuation saves lives!"
I am wondering if this King thing is similar.
Very often today, the very idea of Western Civilization in and of itself is considered to be a white oppressive thing. They will often protest in colleges if they have to take Western Civ courses because it is too centered on learning about old, dead white men. So to some in our country, they equate Western Civ with the concepts of white nationalism and white supremacy. It's a white oppressive construct.
So what did King mean? Was he wondering why all three concepts are offensive to people or wondering why Western Civ itself is now offensive and lumped in with the other two?

I don't believe it. Every time I hear someone use the word "racist" my brain just shuts down and nothing else they say means squat.
I do believe that every time a Democrat says the word "racist," a Redneck is born...
