Progressivism has added (and continues to add) much more to Racism than 1619

Oh, this is a brilliant piece-- and I'm sorta upset that I didn't think about it first! (Keep in mind that he's correctly referring to "the Left" here-- not the bulk of Dem partisans/idolaters or our country's handful of "Liberals".)

The NYT's "1619 project" is based on (really) bad economics. (Others have written on that nicely.) But then to Anderson's primary point, the project misses the remarkable contribution of "Progressives" to our continued/continuing trouble with racism, through the comprehensive narrative of "evolution", elitism and willingness to use policy to implement those ideals. and the use of government to segregate and restrict competition.
