In a tweet that would have sounded over-the-top coming from parody account Salondotcom, liberal online magazine Salon declared that all white people are racist. (RELATED: Salon Warns Of ‘White Menaces To Society’)

Well, that settles it.
Strangely enough, the piece the tweet links to, “10 ways white people are more racist than they realize,” is three weeks old. Some of the ways that white people are supposedly racist are tenuous to say the least. It might be true that “white people are more likely to have done illegal drugs than blacks or Latinos, but are far less likely to go to to jail for it,” but how does that implicate literally all white people?
A few Twitter users pointed out that for a website concerned so much about racism, Salon’s senior staff is pretty darn white:
