Let's see if I understand the rules. Blacks, African Americans, or whatever the
politically correct nom du jour is, are free to rail against whites. But if a white
dares to mention race, the consequences are dire.
Geraldine Ferraro is the latest casualty in the ongoing race war, which, oddly enough,
has only white casualties. Geraldine was forced to step down from Hillary's campaign
because she dared exercise her first amendment right, suggesting Obama wouldn't
be succeeding in the Democratic nomination battle if he weren't black.
Whether or not her comment is valid will never be debated. For daring to offer an
opinion on the subject of race, she has been cast from polite society. Her sin?
Opining on race while being white. According to unwritten rules, only blacks are
allowed to discuss, well, being black in America.
The Sharptons and the Jacksons have cuckolded two generations of blacks (Blacks?)
into white racism. The accepted party line on race is, anything that goes wrong is whitey's fault. Everyone is racist (if you can't see that its because its silent
'institutional' racism). And the only way
to be an authentic black is to join the grievance community and make victimhood
the defining characteristic of one's
Americans are a moral people. Something which is increasingly being used
to our disadvantage, with our permission. Consider: Just as terrorists consider
appeasement a sign of weakness and thus feel emboldened to further acts of terror,
so do racial hucksters become emboldened and validated every time a white is forced
to sing mea-culpa for even mentioning race.
In any debate, the side that defines the issue has the upper hand and sets the rules.
Racial hucksters realize this, and have been extremely effective in stifling
any debate on race unless the debate is framed around issues of their choosing.
Under these rules, honorable and heroic black men, like the Rev. Jesse Lee
Peterson, among many others, are automatically excluded from the national conversation
because they hold conservative views. Views that directly challenge the 'its all
whitey's fault and everyone is racists' line the hucksters promote every day.
The end result is a monologue, not a conversation. Whites are not allowed to mention
race unless their views accord with the sensitivities of the reigning, media anointed,
Corporations are forced to adopt policies that negatively affect their bottom line
for fear of being branded racist. Politicians are forced to toe the line or lose
their offices. Talk show hosts, sports stars and celebrities could lose their careers
if their comments don't comport with the current racial talking points. White Americans
have been put in in lose-lose position of constantly being forced to prove a negative.
Can you spell blackmail?
Just as the left has declared the issue of global warming settled, case closed,
so has 'society' accepted and allowed racial hucksters to define and decide who
is and who is not a racist. This is enormous power.
Black racial hucksters have
captured the moral high ground based on the suffering of their ancestors. The suffering
good Americans acknowledged and corrected, first, by following England's lead in
abolishing slavery. Secondly, by accepting responsibility with trillions of dollars
in social programs over the last forty-five years. Programs which, by the way, have turned
out to have done more harm than good, destroying
black families and breeding generations of blacks who know only the entitlement mentality. Dare I say blacks had a choice? Dare I say they willingly handed responsibility
for their fate to government instead of deciding to take responsibility themselves?
No, if I say that, I'm branded a racist.
Meanwhile, under the ever-changing rules, blacks are free to preach hate. One recent
instance was Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity
United Church of Christ. He stood up and declared "We won't sing 'God Bless America,'
we should sing, 'God Damn America'." This is not an isolated incident, but
one preached in black churches across our country every day.
Racial hucksters are encouraging black separatism under
the guise of empowerment (as defined by them). Blacks are told they can't
blacks, again, as defined by the hucksters, unless they embrace their own
culture. Only thing is, Thomas Sowell, in 'Black Rednecks, White Liberals'
proves that what blacks claim as their 'culture' actually originated in Northern
England, from what was then called the redneck culture. Not Africa.
Inconvenient facts are not allowed. The rules stipulate that only blacks can be
oppressed, because they have no power. This flies in the face of reality. When the
black community has the power to destroy businesses, organizations, and politicians
by threatening to brand them racist, I'd call that power. I'd also call it a misuse
America is forced to dance the race dance. To abide by whatever rules the black
community decides to sets. Its hard, however, because the rules differ from group
to group, depending on skin color. While a white could possibly be jailed for saying
nigger, the airwaves are filled with blacks saying nigger. Oh, and when is the last
time you heard of a black-on-white 'hate crime'?
The rules stipulate that blacks are not to be held accountable for their own actions. Whatever they
do wrong is either because of the oppression of their great-grandparents, or whitey's
The rules stipulate that the barest mention of race is enough to earn the title
of racism. Unless you're black. The rules also stipulate that black conservative
role models like Thomas Sowell, Condoleeza Rice, Walter Williams, Shelby Steele,
Clarence Thomas, etc., are not part of the authentic black community.
Colin Powell, a liberal, is.
Martin Luther King's dream has turned into a nightmare. Instead of being judged
by the content of one's character, Americans are now judged, in large part, based
on their skin color. (At least, white Americans are.) All Americans are being forced to ignore reality and parrot whatever nonsense is
deemed acceptable by the powers that be. No debate, case closed. Its enough to make
one a racist.
* I'd like to go on and extoll the virtues of many blacks that have not embraced
the party line, but that would be patronizing. I will not be coerced into proving I am not a racist and I will not be forced into playing by rules I never voted on
or agreed to.
