Reflective Projection

Navarro went ageist, too - the Trifecta! (Oprah didn't even get that with her "racism will end when all the old white people die." Forgot to specify old white men.)

In the "three fingers pointing back at you" department, folks don't realize that pointing out the ethnic/sex nose-counts utterly speaks to the racism/sexism of the nose-counters! Non-racists/-sexists are looking at other factors, relevant factors, like qualification and character.

But, what can I say about it? Not that I ever think about it, but, after all, I'm one of those old, privileged, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant (remember "WASP"?) males, so naturally I wouldn't notice the quasi-conscious selective bias that keeps qualified non-whites/-males out of positions of power.
