WaPo Mag Editor: 'Tough Time to Be a White Man in America Where the Minorities Are Really Taking Over'

Cathy Areu, a contributing editor for the Washington Post Magazine, said Monday, "It’s a tough time to be a white man in America where the minorities are really taking over."

This oddly surfaced on Fox News's O'Reilly Factor during a discussion about New York Times columnist Charles Blow comparing Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich to the kids that bullied a grandmother on a school bus last week (video follows with transcript and commentary):

CATHY AREU: I think it’s a very interesting angle. I write for the Washington Post Magazine, not the New York Times though. I don’t sit next to his desk. I don’t know what he was thinking. But it’s a very interesting angle, and I do think that people have a bullying mentality nowadays.

I think it’s a tough time to be a white man in America where the minorities are really taking over, to be quite honest. You’ve noticed on the show people are willing to vote for an atheist. The Latinos are stepping out. They are, minorities are outnumbering all whites in America.

I'm not sure what this had to do with Blow, Limbaugh, that grandmother, or those kids; neither did substitute host Laura Ingraham.

It was nevertheless an interesting observation about the direction of our country, especially from the daughter of Cuban immigrants that is the founder of Catalina magazine which caters to Hispanic women.

With so much focus on minorities and women in America today - including, of course, white women - Areu was voicing an inconvenient truth for Caucasians in this country that unfortunately possess a Y-chromosome.

More and more this demographic group is indeed treated with minority status by liberals and their media minions also blaming most of the world's problems on its members.

That doesn't validate her point though, for the problem isn't the growth in minorities.

It's instead the superior status they and the female population are given by the media that is making it "a tough time to be a white man in America."

As she's a member of that pompous, condescending media as well as the majority more favorably viewed by it, one wouldn't expect her to count herself as being part of the problem.

Nice of her to recognize it though even if she refused to opine on the cause.
