I can’t believe how much real life has imitated Bias Incident: The World’s Most Politically Incorrect Novel.

When I wrote Bias Incident, there was one scene that I was a bit concerned was a little over-the-top.  It was the scene at the feminist rally called “The Guy Bash.”  In that scene, a pinata of a “white male oppressor” is beaten.

I thought it might seem a bit exaggerated, but still amusing.

Now I think it’s just amusing.

It’s clearly not exaggerated.  After all, there’s this:

Black students at the University of Memphis hanged from a tree a piñata made to look like a white woman, and took turns beating it with a stick. A photo of the incident has been making the rounds on the internet, and the university had to issue a statement about it this week.

Was it a racist act? No, turns out it wasn’t intended that way at all. Just some kids having fun at a party.

But imagine if the racial dynamics had been reversed — white students beating a black piñata hanging from a tree. I think we can all be grateful that wasn’t the case.

Sometimes a piñata is just a piñata.

Leftists, as Theodore Dalrymple has said, have turned satire into prophecy.
