The sun is racist! Two major liberal papers agree the ‘Deplorable Solar Eclipse of 2017’ cuts out black people (9 Pics)

The sun is racist, y’all. The proof is the “Deplorable Solar Eclipse of 2017.”
Leftist grievance mongers are whining that the total solar eclipse was racist. Why? Because the “path of totality,” or the main path of the eclipse, passed mostly through states that voted for President Trump.
Left-wing professor Alice Ristroph (left) says the solar eclipse is racist because few black people live along its path. Naturally, liberals are outraged. 
Leading the race-baiting rant is left-wing Brooklyn Law professor, Alice Ristroph, who railed against the racist sun (that fascist neo-Nazi!) for shining across states where hardly any black people live. First off, that is not true. But why let facts get in the way of a moonbat narrative?
“It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people,” Ristroph wrote in a mind-numbing, 4,500-word post in The Atlantic. “Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system. Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”
Ristroph detailed how the solar eclipse started in Oregon, which is mostly white, and then cut through pro-Trump states Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri. “From Kansas, the eclipse goes to Missouri, still mostly bypassing black people,” she bloviated.
As insane and pseudo-intellectual as The Atlantic’s puff piece is, it’s not the only left-wing media outlet that has slammed the solar eclipse’s inherent racism.
On August 1, the Boston Globe (no links for losers) asked: “Is the eclipse throwing shade at Clinton supporters? The path of ideal viewing spots for this month’s highly-anticipated total solar eclipse cuts overwhelmingly through places that voted for President Trump.”
Somehow, this (white) woman is trying to claim that the eclipse, nature itself, is somehow racist. As if the sun and moon have colluded to make the full eclipse only exist in places she claims are mostly where white people live. And yes, she’s serious, as The Daily Caller notes:
The Atlantic, a once-great magazine, has determined that the total eclipse of the sun due to occur on Monday will fail to affect enough black people.
The Atlantic’s very lengthy essay on the failure of the eclipse to occur where a sufficient number of black people reside is entitled “American Blackout.” It clocks in at a remarkable 4,544 words and does not appear to be satire.
In its final paragraph, The Atlantic concludes that the United States is “still segregated” and has “debts that no honest man can pay.” Cryptically, the magazine suggests, “the strange path of the eclipse suggests a need for reorganization” of the entire American political system.
The Atlantic classifies its article about the path of the eclipse in the category of “science” even though nothing remotely approaching science appears in any of the 4,544 words.
The author talks about history and laws that aren’t in existence anymore as well, seemingly to blame where people migrated to over the years. It’s hard to grasp what she’s actually aiming that other than some type of science fiction ploy that the eclipse is a sign about the country.
What’s more of a sign about the country is that a Harvard Law graduate and professor of law is writing such absolute tripe. It further proves that indoctrination is alive and well at universities that are supposed to be prestigious, but are turning into nothing more than left-wing propaganda outlets that make students’ minds turn into mush.
This professor, who supposedly teaches constitutional law, laments about the electoral college. (What that has to do with an eclipse is unclear, but we’re not surprised anyways).

Because this professor doesn’t truly grasp the extremely important reasoning behind the electoral college (without it, the entire country would be ruled by what those in New York and California wanted which means our country would have fallen to Communism years ago), she tries to portray it as something negative, as many on the left do.
The Daily Wire sums up her ridiculous essay quite well:
Finally, having exhausted the astronomical indicators, Ristroph reaches her ultimate conclusion: that America just plain sucks.
We tend to backlight our history, and so run the risk of trying to recover a glory that never existed. When the light in August changes, watch carefully.
We probably could have easily guessed that thesis before Ristroph crossed the map on the heels of the solar eclipse, but, of course, we had to be reminded for nearly two thousand words that the institutional left can suck the fun out of nearly anything, including a totally objective scientific phenomenon that, despite some of the crazier notions on Twitter, was not orchestrated centuries ago by the Illuminati to oppress the peoples of America’s mid-section. Particularly woke parents can probably even use Ristroph’s essay as a primer for how to teach the concepts of wealth inequality and internalized privilege to their children.
It’s egregious that the left can’t simply leave politics out of anything, even events in nature completely out of mankind’s control. It seems they are hell bent on politicizing everything while remaining void of common sense.

This kind of eye-popping hysteria and lunacy is precisely why Trump won the 2016 election, and why he will win again in 2020. People are fed up with the anti-Trump politicization of everything, from entertainment to sports to cosmic occurrences.

Meanwhile, Twitter reacted by noting that it would have been hard for the eclipse to not cut across pro-Trump territory, since he won most of the electoral map.

In other news, singer Bonnie Tyler performed her 1983 hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the solar eclipse aboard Royal Caribbean’s Total Eclipse cruise. The cruise was in the path of the totality during her performance.  Enjoy.
