The modern regressive left would have us think so, but it’s rubbish.
What about the bigotry and prejudice of non-Western cultures? The evidence is overwhelming that the non-Western world contains plenty of this.
Take this actual Chinese advertisement for Qiaobi laundry detergent:
As even the BBC noted here, the Chinese seem to have, err, – shall we say? – a bit of a problem with coloured people.
But here in the West we have a regressive left that has essentially abused the word “racist” to the point where it has been grossly devalued and emptied of meaning: now good grammar is racist, yoga is racist cultural appropriation, and “culturally insensitive” Halloween costumes are racist.
This is, quite frankly, a pretty grotesque insult to people through history who have suffered genuine irrational racial discrimination.
And for the modern regressive left, *everything* is racist, sexist, and homophobic.
But it seems strangely restricted to the Western world, with a discreet veil drawn over the non-Western world.
