Social Justice Warriors Have Gone Overboard, and One of Hollywood’s Biggest Names Can’t Believe It

By

Young liberals jumping on the social justice bandwagon will seemingly attack just about anything or anyone these days.

And, more often than not, they’ll do so without knowing what they’re really talking about.

Hollywood heavyweight Steve Martin, himself firmly in the liberal camp, was suspired to find himself the latest target of the social justice warriors.

From the New York Post:

Students in a humanities class at Reed College blasted the inclusion of the ancient skit in their coursework, branding it a vile example of cultural appropriation — as they demanded that it be removed entirely.

“That’s like somebody … making a song just littered with the n-word everywhere,” a member of Reedies Against Racism told the student newspaper, according to The Atlantic.

The student called the performance, which includes African-Americans clad in faux ancient Egyptian attire, as racist.

“The gold face of the saxophone dancer leaving its tomb is an exhibition of blackface,” the incensed student told The Atlantic.
