BuzzFeed is under fire for publishing a racially charged article on Wednesday titled, “37 Things White People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018,” which lists “America” among the things that whites have purportedly wrecked.
Utilizing tweets, comments and headlines written by other people, BuzzFeed staff writer Patrice Peck compiled a list of things she believes that Caucasians have ruined, featuring everything from macaroni and cheese to sneakers.
Conservative commentator Britt McHenry told Fox News, “This article isn’t funny, it’s racist — plain and simple. If a similar piece was written about any other ethnicity, the journalist would be fired on the spot. It undoubtedly would spark public outrage, and rightfully so.”
According to Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor, “openly liberal media have finally outed themselves” and left-leaning media members think “it’s OK to be racist or sexist, as long as their targets are white and male” and believe in conservative values.
“The easy test of this is try imagining a bigoted piece of filth like this being written about any other group. Picture the ‘37 Things Black People Need To Stop Ruining In 2018’ headline and then wait for Twitter to shut down your account,” Gainor said.
Gainor contended that BuzzFeed is “openly bigoted” but asserted that “major media will let them get it away it” because many of those who might criticize the article are guilty of the same transgression.
“Instead of hating white people, maybe Buzzfeed should thank them,” McHenry said. “The unemployment rate remains at a 17-year low, and the economy grew last quarter at its fastest pace since 2015. Minorities, including Hispanics and Blacks, are seeing historic lows in unemployment across the country”
Outkick founder and media watchdog Clay Travis had a similar opinion about the article, tweeting, “If this is written about any other race every advertiser bails on company & a ton of people are fired.”

The story contends that Kendall Jenner ruined protests, wealthy people have ruined “trees” by installing anti-bird spikes, white Hollywood ruined the Oscars, and Adele beating Beyoncé for an award ruined the Grammys, among other things.
In particular, Peck blames white people who voted for President Donald Trump as the ones who have ruined America.
