Communism promotes destruction of "white people," code for European Christians/Catholics and their descendants.
New York Times has a history of institutional pro-Communism (e.g. pro-Communist NYT reporter Walter Duranty) and a history of anti-white people reporting (e.g. a steady stream through the years of hit pieces on priests).
That is why Sarah Jeong is a perfect hire for the NYT editorial board.
"The editorial board is a group of experts, usually at a publication, who dictate the tone and direction the publication's editorial policy will take." -- wiki
