This is one reason why conservatives and libertarians did not join Barney Frank and the left in promoting politically correct hate-crime legislation that would create a few more specially protected categories among us, as a kind of human ‘endangered species’ act. Sorting Americans into distinctive racial, ethnic and gender groups, while designating whites and heterosexuals to be their ‘oppressors’ makes the latter into legitimate targets of hate themselves. It thus becomes a way of exacerbating, rather than correcting, the social disorder.

It is time to go back to the wisdom of the Founders who wrote a Constitution without reference to ethnic or gender groups. They did so in order to render us equal before the nation’s system of law. It was an imperfectly realized ideal then, but that should be no excuse for abandoning the ideal now. We need to end the vicious libels of political correctness that have percolated their message of anti-white racism into our mainstream culture. The vast majority of white people do not hate or oppress black people, just as the vast majority of heterosexuals do not hate or oppress gays. We need to single out those individuals who do, whatever their race or gender — for condemnation and social ostracism. And we need to do the same to individuals who belong to minorities and are haters themselves. Most of all, we need to go back to the task of treating all Americans as individuals first, and as members of groups only secondarily, if at all.
