Dinesh fucks over his own argument here.
See? Black people were the most visible face of racism in America. The racism also touched white people such as Jews, Poles and Irish who were not treated all that well. But Indians and Chinese were also treated as “coloured people”. If we forgot about segregation and slavery Dinesh D’Souza would not be allowed to run for power. He owes his political career solely due to the struggles of Black Americans who fought against racism and slavery.
But let us compare the two things. One is a set of social and economic issues that arose from slavery and systemic institutionalised and overt racism that lead to the current status quo. The other was a pointless political demonstration.
The cold war is over. Rather than make new friends and move forward the USA was acting like a spoilt child bullying a tiny nation. It could have been a positive influence on the region, instead it shuttered it’s doors and created animosity.
Dinesh just wants more of the same.
Then again, if Obama said that running head first into walls was stupid, many conservatives would respond that being unconscious at the base of a wall is actually a sign of genius.
