Recently, the woke mob has managed to batter another individual into submission, if only due to the media backing their endless antics.
Bestselling author James Patterson, who has contributed to society for decades via his work, dared to speak his opinion during an interview with the Sunday London Times, namely when he weighed in on the realistic career options, or lack thereof, for white male writers in today’s cancel culture.
Patterson remarked that it was especially difficult, albeit not impossible, for older white writers to obtain work in publishing, television, and film.
Branding the effective dismissal of older white authors constitutes “another form of racism,” per Patterson.
“What’s that all about? Can you get a job? Yes. Is it harder? Yes. It’s even harder for older writers,” Patterson remarked during the interview.
“You don’t meet many 52-year-old white males,” the famed author added.
Unsurprisingly, online backlash mounted almost immediately against Patterson, with one of the most vocal activists of all including Dr. Shola Shogbamimu.
Proclaiming that Patterson’s comments constituted “White supremacy personified,” the self-proclaimed feminist and lawyer raged against Patterson’s “false equivalence” and “obtuse statement.”
“He best pick up books and educate himself on what racism is,” the alleged intellectual raged, “he’s missing good old days when White men had ALL the writing gigs?”
In addition, another best-selling author, Frederick Joseph, insisted that he has had numerous books rejected since “white editors” apparently lack the comprehension to understand them.
“From a Black man who has had over 50 rejections of books … because white editors don’t understand them … shut up,” Joseph snarled.
Needless to say, this level of criticism effectively strongarmed the author into an apology on Facebook, lest he find himself at the receiving end of the nonstop torrent of abuse that has befallen other public figures who dare to voice the truth.
“I apologize for saying white male writers having trouble finding work is a form of racism,” Patterson wrote, despite the reality that plagues many talented white individuals today, especially in the woke entertainment industry.
“I absolutely do not believe that racism is practiced against white writers,” Patterson continued, “please know that I strongly support a diversity of voices being heard – in literature, in Hollywood, everywhere.”
