When Obama was elected, the one and only consolation to me – knowing what I knew of his past and his intentions for the country – was that he was black. How monumentous for our country to have elected its first black president, just as it would have been incredible had we elected the first female president. It is the irony of ironies that this one, lonely consolation from Obama’s election to outspoken critics of the president like me is used against us at every turn. We are all racists now. I’m so over it. Boring. Now, one of the (many) reasons I can’t wait for Obama to get out of office is so that I can stop being a racist. Once he’s out, I can continue to criticize the government without the added hassle of being a racist. How refreshing that will be!
No, Liberals’ favorite tactic, the race card, is not going anywhere anytime soon. I hope you’re following the debate between the “racist” Tea Party and the racist NAACP. It is the problem I mention above exemplified perfectly. As boring as it all is, I’m glad those profiteering on the race card industry are being called out on their own racism, enabling gems like this to slip…
Liberals/Progressives will never admit and/or understand, however, that they are the greatest racists of all. Their policies toward blacks are inherently racist, showing their true belief that blacks just aren’t as capable as whites, and hence, need special treatment. I don’t understand how more blacks don’t see this for themselves. I just read a blog post that speaks to this point perfectly; I’m going to c&p the entire post here, just in case the link should ever die. The Afroconservative’s words are so, so true. But then again, I’m just a racist and she’s just an Uncle Tom, right?
In the wake of Derrion Albert’s death, I find myself increasingly disillusioned by the current state of Black America. While African Americans comprise 13.5 percent of the population, 43 percent of all murder victims in 2007 were African America. Of the 43 percent who were murdered, 93.1 percent were killed by African Americans.
Was it always like this? The answer is Unequivocally: NO.
The disproportionate crime rates, illegitimacy rates, divorce rates, drugs abuse, and disproportionate incarceration rates didn’t begin until liberals took over the Black Community in the 60s. Before liberals came and negated the influence of the Black father, over 80 percent of black children in 1960 were born in wedlock. In 1940 the illegitimacy rate amongst Blacks was 19 percent. Today, post the liberals monopoly in the poor urban areas, the illegitimacy rate is over 70 percent and almost 90 percent in the inner city. Surprisingly, between 1890 and 1940 Blacks had a marriage rate slightly higher than Whites. According to Herbert G. Gutman author of “The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom (1750-1925)”– for every 6 children under the age of under the of 6-5 of them lived in two parent households. In Harlem between 1905 and 1925, only 3 percent of all families were headed by a woman under 30. In this same time period, 85 percent of black children lived in two-parent families.
The training ground for any human being begins in the home. The dynamics of the home environment can do two things: it can set the child up for failure or for success. When Patrick Moynihan, a Democrat began seeing the negative trends of entitlement programs regarding the Black Family in the 60s he wrote the “Moynihan Report”. In the “Moynihan Report” he predicted that if the Black family continued to disintegrate, then there would be issues of delinquency, crime, disproportional educational outcomes, and other social problems that come when a father isn’t active in a child’s life.
What did the liberals do with this information? They called Moynihan a racist! They decried that he was “blaming the victim” and that he was against the “strong black woman” and that she could do it all by herself. Well, it wasn’t all by her lonesome because the nanny state (LBJ’s Great Society) was going to be there to replace daddy. Part of the stipulations for receiving welfare was that the Black father was not able to be present in the home. Therein lies the beginning of the destruction of our families.
Well, on behalf of the Black race, I want to thank all the liberal feminists who screwed up Black America with their entitlement programs and their warped world views. I want to thank the Saul Alinksy’s and all the “community organizers” who used the Blacks as pawns to advance their Marxist agenda. The progressives of this day had it all figured out. In order to eradicate the capitalist foundation of this country, they would need to put as many people on the welfare rolls as possible. The progressives didn’t care about Blacks before this. They were too busy empathizing with Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini. Look it up. Moreover, racist Progressives like Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) were too busy pushing their eugenics (i.e. let’s kill off as many black people and other “undesirables” as possible).
Do you think Lyndon Baines Johnson and John F Kennedy cared about Blacks in this time? Lyndon Baines Johnson and John F Kennedy didn’t even support civil rights legislation until it became politically convenient to do so. Neither supported the Civil Rights Act of 1957 (pushed by REPUBLICANS). In fact, the same president we thank for Great Society, Mr. LBJ said, “President Truman’s civil rights program “is a farce and a sham–an effort to set up a police state in the guise of liberty. I am opposed to that program. I have voted against the so-called poll tax repeal bill. . .. I have voted against the so-called anti-lynching bill.”
Liberals managed to destroy an institution that survived the most heinous of circumstances.
So, what’s the answer?
More government? Obama? PUHLEEZE! Spare me! Obama has the same prescription for the REST OF AMERICA that the Liberals had for Blacks in the 60s. It’s not going to work. When you want to think of what a liberal utopia will look like in America (don’t think of Stalin’s Russia, Mussolini’s Italy, or Hitler’s Germany-I know it’s tempting) just picture the ghettos of America.
Hey liberals, You cannot help lift people out of poverty by taking from one group to give to another. All that happens with redistribution of wealth is a new “slave” that the liberals can count on that will always vote for them. Contrast that to the Conservative Republican response to poverty, which is change your values, maintain strong family structures that create human capitol, and then stay out of the private sector so the private sector can do what it does best-create WEALTH. That way it becomes nearly impossible to become slaves to the Conservative Republican “system” of economic revitalization.
The answer for Black America is getting back to our values. Not the values of the amoral, nihilistic liberals. We need to go back to a place where we reject moral relativity. We need to encourage Black men to marry Black women before they bring children into the world. We need to stop “dogging” Black people who are educating themselves and speaking proper english. We need to stop calling them “sell-outs” and “uncle toms”. We need to stop saying “You talk like a White person” when one of “us” speaks proper english. Intelligence is not strictly “white domain”-no matter what liberals tell you. Liberals continually want to absolve Blacks of personally responsibility. Liberals say we kill each other, we rob from each other because we “don’t know any better” or because ” we can’t help ourselves”. That’s bull. We do know better. We can do better. We will do better when we get back to our “roots”. What are those “roots”?–God, Family and Education. More Government, and Obama definitely aren’t part of the prescription for a better tomorrow.
