Meanwhile, instead of apologizing, Daum has admirably held her head high. She told the Daily Wire she would “wear the dress again.” And she wrote on Twitter, “I have much respect for the Chinese culture. To everyone causing so much negativity: I mean no disrespect to the Chinese culture. I’m simply showing my appreciation to their culture. I’m not deleting my post because I’ve done nothing but show my love for the culture. It’s a f–king dress. And it’s beautiful.”
In a way, the left’s hyper-outrage shows how far we’ve come. Many glaring examples of systemic racism in our society have lessened to the point that mountains are being made out of molehills — attacking an entire company for the actions of one branch manager or vilifying a single teenager over a prom dress.
Much still needs to be done to fight discrimination. But if Kohn and Daum are any indication, those committed to fighting racism need their own day of training about proportionality.
