Conservative political columnist, author and attorney David Limbaugh wrote several tweets on Monday addressing the social media backlash directed at Jennifer Lopez’s Sunday evening Grammy performance, asking, “Whatever happened to the idea that we should all live in harmony & strive toward color-blindness?”

“Whatever happened to the quaint notion that everyone, no matter his/her race, is equal in God’s eyes?” asked David Limbaugh in a tweet on his Twitter page. “Whatever happened to the idea that we should all live in harmony & strive toward color-blindness? Ideas to the contrary are being forced on us by radicals not by minority people.”

David Limbaugh’s comments came in response to apparent backlash on social media after “[a]ctress-turned-singer Jennifer Lopez gave a tribute to Motown at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night” due to Lopez “being Puerto Rican, not black,” reported the Daily Wire. “According to HuffPost, ‘Lopez, who had drawn criticism even before the awards show for being tabbed to celebrate a black record label during Black History Month, received additional online disapproval for her medley performance. She sang classics like “Do You Love Me” while donning several outfits in an act with Smokey Robinson and others.’”

“It used to be considered honorable when members of one race paid tribute to members of another race,” wrote David Limbaugh in a tweet. “Now in this hyper-identity politics culture, it is not only not appreciated, it is considered an affront. Seriously, am I weird for thinking that’s sick and very unhealthy?”

Limbaugh went on in another tweet, “The whole idea of cultural appropriation or misappropriation strikes me as unchristian, divisive, intolerant, and destructive. Who actually thinks like this naturally, as opposed to doing so in response to PC pressure?

“I am articulating ideas that should be considered loving, but I am quite certain the woke people would twist them as hateful,” concluded David Limbaugh.
