Can I Tell This Story and Not be Racist?

I’ve been thinking a lot about race lately. There’s no way to escape the topic since nearly everybody and his brother are accusing conservatives of being racists.

Eric Holder said that Americans are cowards when it comes to race. Maybe we are. No one likes to be called a racist. I’m not a coward. I want to talk about race since many black neighborhoods and schools are disintegrating. Too many young blacks have succumbed to an ingrown black culture that is not healthy. Cultural integrity can be a good thing, but not when it’s manufactured in the name of a blame-game.

Blacks are going to have to save themselves. The place to start is where the disintegration is most visible.

Consider these statistics from The New Century Foundation’s The Color of Crime (2005), an American report on the differences in crime rates by race. It found the following:

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate.
  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.
  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

As difficult as blacks had it during the days of segregation, a distinctly black culture developed even in the prevalence of racist attitudes and restrictive laws. We forget, or have never been told, that Washington, D.C., from 1920 to 1960, “was a financial, spiritual, and cultural stronghold. Because Washington was a segregated city, blacks simply created their own metropolis. . . . The first black bank, the Industrial Savings Bank, was started here.” While “the black population of New York’s Harlem inherited many of its buildings from previous white owners, . . . many of the buildings in Shaw were paid for by black businessmen and built by black hands.”[1]

Families were intact, the divorce and unwed mother rates were no different from that of white communities.

Take a look photographs of the 1963 March on Washington led by Martin Luther King, Jr. Notice how everyone is dressed. Most of the men are wearing suits and ties. Many of the women are wearing hats, as are the men. There is a dignity about the crowd.

Blacks are not helped by the continued claim that all problems for them are racial. Some are, but most aren’t. Black on black crime is not the fault of white people. Sky-high out-of-wedlock births are not the fault of whites. High dropout rates among blacks are not the fault of whites. The solution is not to cry “racism” and blame everything on whites or hundreds of years of oppression. Blacks won’t find their problems solved by appealing to the State.

Welfare programs have done a lot to keep black families down by subsidizing family fragmentation and fostering multi-generational dependency. Black problems aren’t solved by naming streets after Martin Luther King, Jr. The same can be said for the King Holiday and Black History Month. These are liberal crumbs to appease the black community, but have any of these actions helped blacks?

Guilt-ridden whites vote for the advocates of government dependency, and anyone who does not will be labeled — you guessed it — a “racist.” It’s a cover for the bill of goods that so-called black leaders sold to their people in the name of “social justice.”

Subsidies have led to the immobility of the poor, the breakup of the black family, and dependency on government programs. My message to blacks: Do the right thing and work to fix it. Cast aside those who have been leading down the real road to recovery. Will the task be hard? Herculean. Are there people who will pitch in to help? Lots! But we won't do it if the answer is going to be more government, guilt, and charges of 'racism' every time you don't like what's being offered as real solutions.

Blacks of America unite . . . the only thing you have to lose are your chains of dependency and victimhood.

    So, you're upset over claims of racism, then the first item you reference is a 2005 study that ignores racially divided socioeconomic conditions and unjust judicial procedures in compiling data, which was created by a white supremacist organization run by a far-right journalist who espouses voluntary segregation as a means towards "racial homogeneity."

    • hunter

      Are these crime stats not to be believed because they were reported by a racist organization, or are they not to be believed because socialist liberals in the press refuse to report them? What has happened to blacks & hispanics in America is the same thing that has happened to whites in the USSR. Socialism destroys the human character and leads to poverty of the serfs of all colors & untold riches for the ruling class, & in this country, wealth to the race baiters.

      • http://www.facebook.com/smichaelwilson Scott Wilson

        No, they aren't to be believed because other organizations that create similar reports pointed out that this particular one ignored socioeconomic status as a contributing factor to the resulting numbers. It's called doing your research.

    • Charles

      I am interested in hearing your thoughts and ideas on how to end "racism". Instead of just proclaiming this wrong, set forth your ideas. IWhat are the racially divided "socioeconomic conditions" ? Who exactly was it that caused them and who is it that keeps them going?
      What are the unjust judicial procedures? If you are black when you commit the crime then you are going to be black when you are brought to trial. There are people of all colors who may get wrongly of a crime, but it is not just the blacks and it is not by the number that makes up the statistics.
      What exactly was started by a white supremacist organization? Who is the "far right" journalist who runs it?

      • http://www.facebook.com/smichaelwilson Scott Wilson

        You can't end "Racism." It isn't a disease or something quantifiable, it is an attitude based on personal and social biases and preconceptions, occasionally based partially in some misunderstood truth or fact, usually based on anecdotal experiences and programmed world view. We can try to reduce it by ceasing practices that help it to proliferate, however, one among them being the feigned outrage at so-called "reverse-racism" and using it as an excuse to regurgitate racist propaganda in an effort to alleviate any perceived attempt to make the individual feel "guilty" or "responsible" for past wrongs they were not a part of yet still passively defend. That would be a nice start.

    • dj

      This article is aimed at FIXING the problems, not rehashing past wrongs and mistakes. No whites today are responsible for what whites may have done 150-200 years ago. You can blame your parents for not earning a million dollars a year and giving you a big trust fund til the cows come home, but the only fix for your financial problems today, if you're an adult, is to get out there and work hard, save money, and invest wisely. Likewise, the only fix for free, adult blacks today is to look honestly at their lives, see what needs fixing, and make the effort to work hard at making changes where needed, and use the incredible opportunities offered in our country. Why is it that Asians come to America with next to nothing, yet end up owning their own businesses and kicking our butts in school, yet some blacks who are born in this country can't seem to make it without welfare? Hard work and positive attitude. Something we can ALL use more of! I know you can't help being a liberal after growing up in the public school system, but even a little common sense should tell you that if we have some black CEOs and drs., and some blacks on welfare, that being black isn't the problem, it's the welfare culture that destroys families so that dads aren't around to teach their sons.

  • Mary

    The civil rights movement destroyed black independence and the black infrastructure. Before civil rights it seems as if blacks, in general, were much better off before and during the time of the civil rights movement. For the most part, there was no major prevalence of out-of-wedlock children, and deadbeat dads. Generally speaking, there were two-parent households; black children weren't causing problems in school; parents took an active role in their child's education; and black people took pride in their appearance.
    Why is it "racist" to talk about it? The answer is simple. Because the progressive libs have made it so that no one brings up the comparison's of past and present. By inserting racism into the equation no one will dare even discuss it as screaming "racist" is the way to stop any intelligent discussion on the matter.
    By not discussing it, the progressive libs can keep the plantation mentality alive where black is dependent on the system for his sustenance instead of independence.
    The very best thing our society can do is get rid of the "wall of political correctness" so that intelligent folks both black and white can discuss the ills of society and how to best correct them.
    Bottom line socialism of the past 50 years has destroyed our society.

        Wrong Mary, it wasn't the Civil Rights movement that destroyed the black community, it was the Great Society legislation passed by the Democrats during the Johnson Administration. I think the racist Democrats saw this as a way to put it to the Civil Rights movement, knowing full well that it would destroy the black community.

          Separation from what? If you mean separation of the races then you should know it was never ever meant to be that way. If you try to quote the Bible in any way shape or form to support racial separation I can promise a battle. You will note that Jesus had ancestors of differing racial backgrounds including some with darker skin.

        • Sandra Schools

          You are absolutely right Evelyn. No where in the word of God do you get even a hint of such a disgusting scene as man's conceived idea of racial separation. It is right out of the pit of hell. God is no respecter of persons. We are created by Him for His glory. God is only a respecter of the hearts of individuals. We are all created with hearts that need to repent of the evil within us, which includes this pride and arrogance of thinking that what is on the outside of us merits anything special or requires something restrictive. The problem does not lie on the outside of anyone.

        • Fenderman52

          Then why did God put blacks and whites on different continents with huge oceans between them? Two societies as different as blacks and whites will never be happy living together.

        • Jack

          Abraham Lincoln said as much. While he sympathized with the "colonialist" movement supported by James Monroe and others to relocate the black population, he thought that the logistics of transporting a vast number of people to Africa (Liberia and Sierra Leone) was too formitable a task. He was trying to found a black colony in Central America -- the modern-day country of Belize (formerly British Honduras) would be my best guess, with a portion of Nicaragua another possibility.
          So, was John Wilkes Booth a good guy or a bad guy? He stopped Lincoln from putting Phase Two of his program into action, that of freeing the slaves, and relocating them to another country.

        • emerutil

          Booth had the misguided desire for revenge. He was very upset over the Civil War's outcome, and blamed it all on Lincoln. He was probably unaware of Lincoln's plan for the blacks.

        • Ardnas

          Evelyn, God never separated blacks and whites. The pigment of ones skin is a mystery to me but not to God. God looks on the heart of a person and not the outward appearance. So who am I to look on a persons outward color and say that I do not want them around me. It is what is in a persons heart that is more important. Yes, we brought blacks to North America. that was wrong in the way it was done. You should be more concerned about your separation from God. That has eternal consequences that you apparently are not aware of. God is your creator and will decide your destiny. You had better find out what He expects from you while on this earth. I do not find in His word one of the things He expects is for you to segregate yourself from a part of the human race He created and loves just as much as He love you.

    • DrZarkov99

      I wouldn't blame the deterioration of black society on the civil rights movement. Read MLK's famous "I have a dream" speech. He wanted an end to distinction by color. It was Lyndon Baines Johnson and his obscene "Great Society" that set out to buy black support for the Democrat party, realizing that their votes would otherwise go to the Republicans, who were the supporters of civil rights. The massive handouts, with their encouragement of single parenthood and illegitimate births, served to break up the black nuclear family. What black society should be ashamed of is that instead of following through on MLK's dream, they let themselves be bought.

        Absolutely correct! LBJ has often been credited with saying when he signed that bill into law, "this will keep the ni&&ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years!" Because welfare is not a hand-up, it is a hand-out that is designed to lift recipients to just about the "Misery Line" and it insures they will remain there, by offering just enough money to dissaude the unskilled from finding entry level jobs, because they would loose their meager benefits..
        The "leadership" of the black community is bent on creating, maximizing and prioritizing the difference between the races. Instead of trying to build bridges to the future in a post racial world, they (the leadership of the black community) only wish to look backwards at burned bridges. Their entire power base is defined by the Black Communities self segregation.
        Having spent a decade teaching in Harlem and the South Bronx, I am convinced that to participate in the Entitlement system on a lifelong basis is to sacrifice all forms of self-respect. This is why killing in the inner city is so rampant, how can one youth have empathy or compassion for another, when they have no love or respect for themselves? The entitlement system literally "breeds" it out them by encouraging factured families, and this was clearly by design.
        When talking about self-respect and creating a better world for the Black community, I prefer to quote Malcom X who said "You cannot give a man that which he will not give himself."

          While working in the Federal Prison System, I often heard the remark "you/ they disrespected me". Of course it was always from a black inmate, especially towards a white inmate or a staff member. When they came before the trial board within the prison, I would tell them this, "first, you have to respect yourself before you can expect others to respect you. Respect is earned, not granted. Just because you are black does not automatically gain you the respect of others". Of course they did not like that answer and I always got a look or a comment of insolence from the inmate. That usually earned him another few weeks in solitary. Attitude adjustment!! Did it work?
          Sometimes. But, when they did have an attitude adjustment and started to respect themselves and others, they found out they earned more respect from others.

The snake didn't make Eve take a bight of the apple, she did it of her own free will because she was mentally weak and couldn't see the lie. If one wants to take the easy way out, then you can't blame it on someone else. You have to take the blame for not wanting to work. There is no easy way to success. It takes hard work, not a hand out. So don't blame anyone but yourself for failure.

        • Bryan

          Although I agree with your point about personal responsibility, I would caution against characterizing Eve as "mentally weak", for she had the wisdom and spiritual maturity to recognize that God's command to "multiply and replenish the earth" was greater than the charge to not partake of the forbidden fruit.

          You must have stopped reading before you got to Genesis 5...there were other children - sons and daughters - fathered by Adam, then by his son Seth, and by his son Enosh, and by his son Kenan, and so on, and so on. Thirty two verses in chapter 5 of Genesis...how did you miss that many verses??? Obviously siblings procreated with siblings...whether or not it was called "incest" at that time, I can't address.

          God allowed incest to occur up to a certain point in order for there to be a sufficient number in the gene pool that incest was no longer needed. Adam and Eve had more children than what is recorded in the bible for this to occur; i.e.they had daughters who married their brothers in order to procreate and add to the gene pool

        • letitsnow1

          adam and eve are related to all of us.

        • Wayne

          Incest wasn't "defined" until the law of Moses went into effect. The patriarchs had multiple wives, yet were not condemned for it, nevertheless Jesus held fidelity in marriage to high esteem saying concerning divorce 'from the beginning it was not so" (meaning obviously Adam & Eve). You are wrong about no mention of sisters, you missed a singular verse. Genesis 5:4 " After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters."

          When Cain had to leave the garden, he had children. Where his wife came from, Bible doesn't tell us. I've always assumed that by then God had created other people. And, since He tells us that incest is wrong in the NEW Testament, I would assume it was wrong in the OLD one too. He was NOT happy with Abraham having a son by Hagar, & THAT is where ALL of Israel's modern day enemies came from. Descendents of Ismael, & later added to from Esau's descendents. There was NEVER a 'Palestinian Arab'. It's just a made up race, made up by Arabs. When that area was called Palestine, it was JEWISH owned by then. There WAS a Philistine race, which was a warrior race, & always at enmity with Israel, but no Palestinian.

          That is correct; however since Adam was the representative of mankind he was responsible for Eve who was created after Adam

          It was given to Adam. However, EVE knew it too, because when the snake asked her, she told him what had been said about the fruit. She was just as guilty as Adam. In fact, when Adam told God that 'the woman YOU gave me, gave to me & I ate it'. In other words, HE blamed GOD! And, that right there is the problem. Everybody wants to blame everybody else. God intended for His Church to care for the elderly, the widows, the fatherless, etc, & not the government. When the DEMOCRAT government started the welfare system, plus the affirmative action program, is when all the problems began. People would tell blacks, 'this is YOUR money, the government intended it for YOU.' Just as these days, in our local food stamp office, they have signs, in English AND Spanish, asking people if they filed for the earned income credit. The sign says 'This is YOUR money'. NO IT"S NOT. It's taxpayer money that was paid in by taxpayers who don't qualify for that credit. When a person pays in $130 in income taxes in 1 year, but gets back a refund of about $3000, how is that THEIR money? They OBVIOUSLY didn't pay it in. When people are told they're 'entitled' to something, even if they didn't actually earn it, most people are not going to turn it down. I am drawing SS, plus I also get some food stamps, but since I've worked for 46 years of my life, paying into the SS, federal taxes, medicare tax, etc. I don't feel it's a handout. I would rather be able to work & make a DECENT living, than to try to live on $800 a month. Due to some health issues, at this time, I'm not able to work, except maybe once in a while, I fill in at the job that I had before retiring, but that doesn't happen a lot, unless someone is unable to work for some reason. Until people of ALL races wake up & stop blaming each other for the problems, & try to work with each other, & try to fix things, it's not going to change.

          You are correct as far as the individual welfare recipient is concerned, but it is appropriate to blame LBJ for creating the system that allows the lazy to keep from working and that encourages out of wedlock births by giving money to girls who have babies as long as no man is around.

          What kind of drivel are you spouting? I lay blame at LBJ's feet and you call me a liberal??
          Let me see if I can dumb this down to your level.
          Whenever you subsidize something you will get more of it, whether it's more home ownership because of the mortgage deduction or government dependency because of liberal social policies (starting with LBJ).
          Before those social programs people had to work. Now the lazy people can sit on their butts, and the welfare system encourages them and and the fence sitters to be dependant on the government.
          Then there's the daughters of these leeches who grow up thinking the welfare life style is normal. That's led to the current situation where we have families that have been sucking the public teat for 5 generations.
          Get it now?

        • Kittyhane

          also with yoamma letting all the illegals in, WE now have to pay their share for health insurance and food stamps and education. My husband and I worked our butts off to pay for our own kids education. But I guess that's a thing of the past. Hard work and jpjride.

        • daveG

          I agree with you on the generations of welfare, but I don't hold the last 3 generations of welfare recipents totally responsible because that's all they've ever known. We need more people like Bill Cosby who keeps telling the blacks that they need to quit blaming "whitey", quit taking welfare and food stamps and get off their butts and go to work. One of the things we need to do is pass a law that in order to receive food stamps and welfare, a person (the ones who are healthy and able) has to show up for work 5 days a week (pick up trash along the highway, cut grass, clean up abandoned lots, etc. These are just a few of the things that need to be done. There's plenty to do. This way, it would not be a hand-out. They would be earning an income. DON'T SHOW UP FOR WORK, YOU DON'T RECEIVE YOUR PAY!! Now, I'm sure that this will be seen as "racist" by the Dems who want to stay with the current HANDOUT system which assures them votes to keep them in office. SCUM!!

        • Mike Tanco

          BS is exactly what it is. We have 7 generations of welfare families today and Obama's redistribution of wealth will just exacerbate the problem. The Dems want the Blacks to stay on the plantation so to speak so they will be obligated to their party. It's time for change alright. Let's get the people working and off of welfare. While were doing that let's cut out foreign aid to countries that don't have loyalty to us and that don't support a democratic style of government. And we can't allow illegal immigrants to continue to poor into our country. Mike Tanco

          I agree. Too many receive our money and then turn around and kill us or spit on us. Not a grateful heart in the group - oh, maybe a couple here and there.

          on the government dole (including unions) they are assured of re-election. I'm
          for denying anyone voting rights if they receive government assistance (welfare)
          or are in prison! If you want to participate in this democracy you need to be a
          responsible productive member of society. I would not put Social Security,

And by robbing our children of our impressive history, the take from them all pride of country...this is not by mistake. They also know the necessity to remove God from our culture to succeed.
          Black Americans such as Allen West are brutally attacked. Now THAT IS a man who SHOULD have been our first black president. He well understands the concept of the "new plantation." As long as black America is chained to the government, to welfare, food stamps, wic, they simply will BE slaves to the government.

        Right on the money, and I am old enough (60) to remember. The Dems started paying black women per illegitimate child and developing all this free housing. My Republican dad told us kids that we were about to see the destruction of the black family and that is what followed. Those women did not want to marry and many if not most of them did not really care about those kids. It was all about getting their "salary". I consider all those imprisoned, aimless or dead black people LBJ's spiritual children. I think he may have been the one that started raiding the SS fund to pay for this obscene debacle. America's demise began in the 60's and really took off in the 70's. Thank the Progressive Democrats.

          Yes, and now with welfare reform still in place in many states, the welfare queens have figured out a new twist.
          Mom gets her teen daughter to have a baby and then give it up. "Grandma" then steps in and takes the kid as a foster child, getting paid money for each of her grandchildren, as much as $2000 a month per child in some cases.

The Southern Christian Leadership conference was listed on the congressional record of the state of Alabama as being soley directed by and in the hands of the communists. King received direction from one of the highest ranking KGB operatives working on American soil at that time. He was not an ordained minister. he embraced and espoused "action oriented marxism".

          Democrats are using "white guilt" to win elections and it is a red herring. Obama is angry about slavery and that George washington owned slaves. Many of the framers of the Constituion were against slavery and 620,000 white men died to make men free.
          Obama and Moochelle have forgotten that the African slavers were horrible Arab Muslims who draged the black slaves chained together thru the Sahara with minimal water. The Arab Muslims were saving most of the water for themselves and their camels. I saw the actual chains in a Sahara documrntary and it was too hard to watch.

      Mary; I am in total agreement with your comment. I am 73 years old an was born in Philadelphia and lived there for 32 years. Every kid I knew had 2 parents whether they were black or white. Back then divorce and teenage pregnancy were frowned upon. I know that when I was disciplined by a teacher I never told my parents because my father would have whooped me again. Society started it's downward slide when LBJ and the dems instituted welfare and started stealing from Social Security, calling it a slush fund, and it's continued unabated ever since. Programs like affirmative action are in reality an insult to blacks because It infers that blacks are not as intelligent as whites, therefore, testing scores have to be adjusted. If I was an african american I would feel insulted. The disproportinate number of blacks on entitlement programs is the object of the democratic party, making them slaves, to that party, in this day and age.
      Political correctness can be resisted by insisting on free, open and public
      discussion of even the most sensitive issues. The more it makes some people

      Inasmuch as LBJ's Great Society was part and parcel of the civil rights movement, I have to agree with you. It's been probably twenty years now that I read a book by Jared Taylor (the title escapes me) that documented the billions of dollars spent on welfare which produced no results. Unless you consider welfare cheats, illegitimate births, no one even looking for jobs results. One man's experiment with civil rights has decimated America and I see no end in sight.

    Some years ago, a white Baptist minister told me that a black Baptist minister from Jamaica told him that black create slums wherever they go. Then, I read Scam, a book by black Baptist minister Jesse Lee Peterson, where he said the same thing. Since this is true, why should we bother building housing projects for these idiots since they're going to turn them into slums anyway? Let them start cleaning up the places where they live now. Stop the sexual misconduct, drug use, crime,especially violent crime, and all of the other evil behaviors that turn an area into a slum.

      I am the offspring of poor Irish immigrants and we never owned a slave nor benefited from slavery.
      I do not have guilt over what the democrats did to the blacks. I am a Conservative. My father lifted his family out of poverty through education and lived 'poor' to afford college educations for three children. I worked for 30 years with no money in my wallet to afford to do the same for my daughter.
      If you want to get ahead in America, the secret is delayed gratification. Don't spend everything you earn, don't get pregnant before marriage, get you college degree and probably a graduate degree too. Do ALL of your HOMEWORK everyday. Never cut class.

      • Fenderman52

        Very good advice. Nobody knows discrimination as well as the Irish Americans do. They were treated terribly when they first came here. They were sterotyped as drunks, layabouts and wife beaters. But they overcame all of this by taking personal responsibility for their fellow Irish. If a man would not behave, his neighbors would "pay him a little visit" to assure his place as a decent member of this society. And now the Irish are as respected as any of us. The blacks must do the same. If we do it we're called racists, so it's up to the good blacks to teach the bad ones how to behave or they will suffer the same retribution as the bad ones will soon be receiving.

        is that they knew the governing authorities has an ironclad cases against
        them and the judgement would have resulting in them being disbarred. It's also important to keep in mind that the surrendering of the licenses happened at two different times, not at the same time. However, since they "surrendered" them, they avoided the trials. In one way, it's almost an admission of guilt. In another way, they beat the courts to the punch.

          Sorry, both factually incorrect, and easily researched to be so. Barack Voluntarily Retired his, and Michelle had hers turned "Voluntarily Inactive," and is easily able to reverse that status if she ever desires to do so. There is no evidence to suggest that Barack's was revoked in any way, and the rumors that Michelle's was forced to voluntarily suspend hers due to some type of malpractice have resulted from people not knowing how to correctly interpret the documentation. Here's a tip for you: if Fox News isn't even making a big deal out of it, odds are it isn't remotely true.

    And now, instead of addressing what is an obbvious and growing problem, blaming whites and pimping poverty has become a cottage industry for black "leaders". The race card, although now getting closer to the bottom of the deck from gross abuse and rampant over-use, worked for way too long. Unfortunately, not only blacks, but everybody else is now paying the price.

    I like that the article is filled with numbers - facts that can't be denied, though they will certainly be used by actual racists to either say "see, blacks are horrible" or "see, whites don't do anything for the rest of us so we have to turn to crime to survive."

    I recently took a different approach to racism on my blog: http://thewriteamerica.com/?p=203

    There I discuss how it's organizations such as the Congressional Black Caucus are the real racists - in their specific case the fact that the organization even exists, as if part of the government should be concerned only with the needs of one identity group, and also how they try to brand others as racists just because we disagree with Obama.

    In my opinion, Obama is one of the biggest perpetrators of racism in American history, leaving even Al Shartpon and Jesse Jackson in the dust.

      Well said, thewriteamerica! From my perspective Allen West, whom I respected for his service to the Country, did himself in when he joined the Congressional Black Caucus. I don't understand his hyphenating his Americanism as many others have done. It is a divisive move, not a unifying one.

    A start to a solution would be to stop special rewards just for being black. An entitlement mentality is not conducive to bettering oneself. Another positive step would be for government officials to completely ignore self appointed black 'leaders,' whose only goal is personal enrichment.
    Thirdly, self selected segregation is not a bad thing. Start by ending all busing that sends bewildered children to schools 20 miles away where their parent(s) cannot possibly become involved. Also, isn't it very degrading for black parents to be told that their children will learn a lot better if they sit next to a white kid?

    Being a victim has many advantages that appeal to those that feel the world owes them. The welfare state has attached chains to the disadvantaged and the recipients have begged for the locks to be shut. Why hold a family together or work if it decreases your benefits?
    If I can blame YOU for my failure in life I have the equivalent of a "get out of life free card" , that works almost as well as the race card. which only worked because no right thinking person wanted to be labeled a 'racist'. Success in the ghetto is derided as "acting white" whether it is hard work or obtaining an education and is something to be eschewed by authentic blacks. As long as that attitude prevails, blacks are more in chains than they ever were during the times of slavery. The difference being this time they have enslaved themselves for the sake of a welfare check or a book of foodstamps. More's the pity!

However, the majority of your readers are conservative whites, ergo, your message will only remain a message with no teeth. Herculean is right adverb but not just for the effort that Blacks must take up, but for all of Americans who trying to get the message across to them.

    USA: The Next Detroit

    By Porter Stansberry

    From the October 28, 2009, S&A Digest

    One of the most important
    things to remember about socialism – or coercion of

    any kind – is it fails
    eventually because human beings have an innate desire for liberty and a strong
    need for personal property rights. In fact, the origins of government lie in
    the need of agricultural communities to protect themselves from violence and
    theft. So it is particularly ironic that in more recent times, it is government
    itself that has more frequently played the role of bandit.

    When you start taxing
    people at extreme rates to pay for socialist "benefits,"

    when you start telling
    them which schools their children must attend, when you

    start giving jobs away to
    people based on race instead of ability... you quash

    human freedom, which bogs
    down productivity. .. and if continued for long

    enough, leads to social
    collapse.

    I find it perplexing that
    only 20 years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall,

    the West continues to
    implement laws that mimic all of the failed policies of

    our former
    "communist" foes. In fact, our current president won the election by

    promising to "spread
    the wealth around." But... truth be told... we don't have

    to look to Eastern Europe
    or the Soviet Union to find a society destroyed by

    coercion, socialism, and
    the overreaching power of the State. We could just look at Detroit...

    In 1961, the last
    Republican mayor of Detroit lost his re-election bid to a

    young, intelligent
    Democrat, with the overwhelming support of newly organized

    black voters. His name was
    Jerome Cavanagh. The incumbent was widely considered

    to be corrupt (and later
    served 10 years in prison for tax evasion). Cavanagh, a white man, pandered to
    poor underclass black voters.

    He marched with Martin
    Luther King down the streets of Detroit in 1963. (Of

    course, marching with King
    was the right thing to do... It's just Cavanagh's

    motives were political not
    moral.) He instated aggressive affirmative action

    policies at City Hall. And
    most critically, he greatly expanded the role of the

    government in Detroit, taking advantage of President Lyndon Johnson's
    "Model

    Cities Program" – the
    first great experiment in centralized urban planning.

    Mayor Cavanagh was the
    only elected official to serve on Johnson's task force.

    And Detroit received widespread acclaim for its leadership in the
    program, which attempted to turn a nine-square- mile section of the city (with
    134,000

    inhabitants) into a
    "model city." More than $400 million was spent trying to

    turn inner cities into
    shining new monuments to government planning. In short,

    the feds and Democratic
    city mayors were soon telling people where to live, what to build, and what
    businesses to open or close. In return, the people received cash, training,
    education, and health care.

    The Model Cities program
    was a disaster for Detroit. But it did accomplish its

    real goal: The creation of
    a state-supported, Democratic political power base.

    The program also resulted
    in much higher taxes – which were easy to pitch to

    poor voters who didn't
    have to pay them. Cavanagh pushed a new income tax

    through the state
    legislature and a "commuter tax" on city workers.

    Unfortunately, as with all
    socialist programs, lots of folks simply don't like

    being told what to do.
    Lots of folks don't like being plundered by the

    government. They don't
    like losing their jobs because of their race.

    In Detroit, they didn't like paying new, large taxes to fund a
    largely black and Democratic political hegemony. And so, in 1966, more than
    22,000 middle- and upper-class residents moved out of the city.

    But what about the poor?
    As my friend Doug Casey likes to say, in the War on

    Poverty, the poor lost the
    most. In July 1967, police attempted to break up a

    late-night party in the
    middle of the new "Model City." The scene turned into

    the worst race riot of the
    1960s. The violence killed more than 40 people and

    left more than 5,000
    people homeless. One of the first stores to be looted was

    the black-owned
    pharmacy.

    The largest black-owned
    clothing store in the city was also burned to the

    ground. Cavanagh did
    nothing to stop the riots, fearing a large police presence

    would make matters worse.
    Five days later, Johnson sent in two divisions of

    paratroopers to put down
    the insurrection. Over the next 18 months, an

    additional 140,000 upper-
    and middle-class residents – almost all of them white

    – left the city.

    And so, you might
    rightfully ask... after five years of centralized planning,

    higher taxes, and a
    fleeing population, what did the government decide to do

    with its grand experiment,
    its "Model City"? You'll never guess...

    Seeing it had accomplished
    nothing but failure, the government endeavored to do

    still more. The Model City program was expanded and enlarged by 1974's Community
    Development Block Grant Program. Here again, politicians would decide which
    groups (and even individuals) would receive state funds for various
    "renewal" schemes. Later, Big Business was brought into the fold. In
    exchange for various concessions, the Big Three automakers "gave"
    $488 million to the city for use in still more redevelopment schemes in the
    mid-1990s.

    What happened? Even with
    all of their power and all of the money, centralized

    planners couldn't succeed
    with any of their plans. Nearly all of the upper and

    middle class left Detroit. The poor fled, too. The Model City area lost 63% of

    its population and 45% of
    its housing units from the inception of the program

    through 1990.

    Even today, the crisis
    continues. At a recent auction of nearly 9,000 seized

    homes and lots, less than
    one-fifth of the available properties sold, even with

    bidding starting at $500.
    You literally can't give away most of the "Model City" areas today. The properties put up for sale last
    week represented an area the size of New York's Central Park. Total vacant land in Detroit now occupies an area the size of Boston – Detroit properties in foreclosure have more than

    tripled since 2007.

    Every single mayor of Detroit since 1961 has been a Democrat. Every single mayor of Detroit since 1974 has been black. Detroit has been a major recipient of every major social program
    since the early 1960s and has received hundreds of billions of dollars in
    government grants, loans, and programs. We now have a

    black, Democrat president,
    who is promising to do to America as a whole what his political mentors have done to Detroit.

    Those of you with a
    Democratic political affiliation may think what I've written above is biased or
    false. You may think what you like. But there is no way to argue that what the
    government has done to Detroit is anything but a horrendous crime. You may think what
    I've written above is merely a political analysis. Perhaps so, but politicians
    drive macroeconomic policy. And macroeconomic policy determines key financial
    metrics, like the trade-weighted value of a currency and key interest
    rates.

    The likelihood America will become a giant Detroit is growing – rapidly.

    Politicians now control
    the banking sector, most of the manufacturing sector

    (including autos), a large
    amount of media, and are threatening to take over

    health care and the
    production of electricity (via cap and trade rules). These

    are the biggest threats to
    wealth in the history of our country. And these

    threats are causing the
    world's most accomplished and wealthy investors to

    actively short sell the United States – something that is unprecedented in my

    experience.

      Well d one, thank you. And quite accurate except for a few points. I was caught up in the Detroit riots and I seen the wrong end of a full-auto twice in one day...no fun I assure you. I recall the official death toll to be around one hundred but friends of mine that were on the force told me that they killed that many in their precinct alone and I think Detroit had about 13 precincts back then. The blacks burned the city to the ground and twenty miles away you could see the corona of fire in the night sky. Half-tracks rumbled through the streets and opened up with 50 cal. Brownings on anyone caugth looting...no questions asked. The fire departments gave up on stopping the fires as the rioters were shooting at them as they tried to do their job. As the song by Gordon Lightfoot went, it was a "Black day in July." With the current criminal administration and with the MSM spreading lies like they are with the Trayvon Martin BS I fear we're in for even worse rioting this summer than '67 had. We've accomplished nothing in the way of racial relationships...nothing.

    No I don't think you're racist. You are pointing out facts that are verifyable. If the truth hurts, too bad. If blacks would stop listening to race baiters like al Sharpton and Jesse jackson, they'd be better off. They need to rise above the harsh realities of their race and be respectable people in society.

    every other race and color that came to the usa,had to rise against racism,language and color-----the black population predominately has kept itself away from merging inot AMERICAN society and prefers to keep their own. until they decide to be americans first----speak our language ,dress as society does, get an education,work for their living, THEY WILL NEVER BE AMERICANS and will exist as an out group of people who live in america.

    Why Kids
    Don't Do Well in School

    January 22, 2010
    by Phyllis Schlafly

    Let me share with you an
    interesting article from the Washington Post about the

    teacher of an all-black
    class in a high school in Alexandria, Virginia, who

    expressed his frustration
    at how poorly the students were performing. The class

    included both native-born
    African-Americans and kids who had immigrated from

    Africa. In a moment of exasperation, the teacher blurted out this
    question to the native-born students: "Why don't you guys study like the
    kids from Africa?" One of them shot back the answer.

    The kid replied,
    "It's because they have fathers who kick their butts and make

    them study." Another
    student called out: "Ask the class, just ask how many of us have our
    fathers living with us."

    The teacher did ask the
    class, and not one hand went up. The students had

    figured out, even if
    school teachers and administrators are still in the dark,

    that the essential
    difference between kids who make it in school, and those who

    don't, is whether they
    have their father in the home.

    It isn't a matter of race;
    the African-Americans and the Africans are the same

    race. It isn't because the
    school doesn't have enough money; this school has so

    much money that it gives
    every student a laptop of his own.

    The basic problem is the
    lack of fathers in the home. And why didn't these kids

    have fathers in the home?

    For the majority of them,
    the reason is the liberal welfare system which

    transformed the people who
    were given "free" money called "welfare" into a

    society of single moms. In
    this matriarchy, fathers were made unnecessary, even

    an impediment to the flow
    of taxpayer handouts.

    Now we see the terrible
    consequences of what Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously

    predicted in 1965 when
    Lyndon Johnson started his Great Society spending.

    Welfare reform was passed
    in 1996 and even signed by Bill Clinton, but President Obama had those reforms
    repealed in his Stimulus bill last year.

    The anti-marriage
    feminists are unwilling to fault the matriarchal society, and

    so the academic feminists
    keep looking for other causes of poor grades by

    minority students. An
    outfit called the Race, Culture, Class and Gender Task

    Group is trying to get the
    University of Minnesota to make race, class and

    gender the
    "overarching framework" of all teacher education coursework.

    This busybody Task Group
    is part of the University's Teacher Education Redesign

    Initiative, which is
    premised on the notion that Minnesota teachers' lack of

    "cultural
    competence" contributes to the poor academic performance of minority

    students. The plan would
    require teachers to be re-educated so they will teach

    Minnesota minority kids that America is an oppressive, racist, sexist,

    homophobic country.

    According to the final
    report of the Race, Culture, Class and Gender Task Group

    last year, in order to
    effectively teach a diverse class of students, teachers

    must understand how
    "white privilege, hegemonic masculinity, heteronormativity,

    and internalized
    oppression" have impacted their thinking.

    The report demands that
    teachers be trained to instruct students on the U.S.

    "myth of meritocracy,
    " the "history of white racism," and "demands for

    assimilation to white,
    middle-class, Christian meanings and values."

    This Task Force even has
    plans to browbeat into submission those who don't

    accept these new liberal dictates.
    The Task Force calls on the University to

    develop "a
    remediation plan" for non-performing students and teachers.

    Such outlandish proposals
    have not gone unnoticed. The Foundation for

    Individual Rights in
    Education (FIRE) accuses these re-education plans of

    violating "the
    freedom of conscience of the university's students," and the

    American Council of
    Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) charges that these plans "ignore

    academic goals and lead to
    a politicized determination of who is qualified to be a teacher."

    The University
    of Minnesota may pretend to back off from the more outrageous of

    these proposals, but they
    are totally in sync with William Ayers' "social

    justice" teaching and
    the more recent buzz word "cultural competence." The

    bottom line is to teach
    the younger generation that they are victims of an

    oppressive and unjust America, and that they should organize and demonstrate (a

    la Saul Alinsky) to take
    power and money away from those who have those things.

    Another ominous straw in
    the wind is Obama's appointment of six way-out

    radicals to the National
    Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and

    Integrity (NACIQI), whose
    mission is to evaluate whether accrediting agencies

    are properly assessing the
    quality of colleges and universities. The appointees

    are the sort of Obama
    extremists who will be likely to try to enforce diversity

    mandates and social
    engineering on institutions seeking accreditation.

    The most important thing
    schools should do to for minority (and other)

    schoolchildren is to teach
    them how to read by phonics in the first grade. They

    could do this

      Outstanding. The rest of the tough truth is that until that can actually happen,we need to segregate so the anglo and asian kids arrant held back or subject to much lower standards. Tough call But necessary. The courts will never let it happen. so we will continue on the dumbing down process.

  • J3player

    The one thing lost in the civil rights movement from Dr King, is the dependance on God. God freed us from slavery and liberated us. We have moved away from God toward dependance on government control. Until we move back to God, we will not be blessed. This goes for the nation as well.

    Guilt Ridden Liberals are eager to place the blame on the White Man. In their BONG Hitting, Bizzarro Multicultural World, the dominate and most successful group should be Dumbed Down to make way for the masses. That way they can share the wealth and pander for numerical votes at the same time. Liberals are an Evil lot who breed Anarchy, Death and Destruction.

    So very true, I know many blacks who have gotten out of that suppressive mind set of the liberals. They are extremely succesful and a joy to have as friends. More should listen seriously to people like Herman Cain, as there are others many others who have their heads on right and see themselves as beings not a black body controlled by government dependency i. e. the Communist liberals.

    You are correct. This is a topic we need to engage in for the good of our country and to save the black community and its young. This fear of being called a racist cannot stop this discussion. However, I am of the opinion that a majority of blacks do not want this discussion to take place. Am I wrong?

  • flaphil

    This tells me that whitey has to sharpen their skills at murder, rape, robbery and then blame another race. That's one way to look at it, but it would be wrong. There's no east answer because many blacks don't want to face reality. They need to change not the rest of the country or world. They have to admit of the corruption in their own ranks, just like in Africa where they're proud of the ancestry. All the money spent here and there has not solved the problems they have. They have to look inward as individuals instead of a group. Then they can identify what they need to do on their own.

  • James

    This is as good as it gets. I wish every Black person would be forced to read it and accept it. Of course, Black people with one-third of a brain like ME already knew how true this is.

  • EHeassler_USNRet

    Gary DeMar is spot on with his assessment of this problem. Government can't and won't solve the black communities' problems. Those problems have to be solved from within and that won't happen until the race whores such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, and Charlie Rangell are discredited for being what they are, pimps in pinstripe suits. The progressive breakdown of the moral structure within the USA and more importantly, in the black community, has led to an attitude of entitlement without merit and as well as an attitude that "We are victims and no matter what we do, we will not overcome the mean circumstances of our existence." It's just more BS. When getting good grades in public schools available to all I might add, is considered acting "white" and will get you beaten up, the problem resides within the black community itself. Black leaders, where are you? You are the people who have to demand change from within and call out the race baiters and charlatans who have made their living selling blacks on victimhood. If you are content with the status quo, just sit on your butts and do nothing. If your really want change, start leading. Demand that young people take advantage of the educational system. Learn something besides the ebonic conjugation of the verb "be" .....I be, we be, they be. It would be a good start.

    To all the lawmakers that do the "feel good" thing, you have controled and did a very big disservice to everyone who is on welfare and dependant on the government. You have managed to take away the drive for generations to improve themselves and their children. I don't care what race you are you must teach your children to strive to improve yourself so that you achieve your dreams! Teaching someone that they cannot achieve anything because of their race is basically "slapping your children in the face" and they will never achieve anything!

    I recommend that everyone read "Stupid Black Men" by Larry Elder (who, by the way, is black,) and it illustrates, in very thoughtful, plain text, all the ills touched upon in the column above.

    It's a very illuminating book that shows why the civil rights movement has become its own worst enemy and why the welfare state has harmed us all.

    Most blacks I know are proud, intelligent people who have just as little tolerance for a lot of what has happened to their people as most conservatives do. But, they feel powerless against the masses of self-created victims.

    I think the time is now to begin to very gently pull the rug out from under about 99% of the people who suck off the government. There are some people who really do need the help, true, hence the 1% that I say should be left with something. And I say "gently" because to do it too fast could cause a calamity of even greater proportions.

    The uncomfortable truth, however, is that crime rates do not explain
    the sudden and dramatic mass incarceration of African Americans during
    the past 30 years. Crime rates have fluctuated over the last few decades
    - they are currently at historical lows - but imprisonment rates have
    consistently soared. Quintupled, in fact. And the vast majority of that
    increase is due to the "war on drugs" and the "get tough movement." Drug
    offenses alone accounted for about two-thirds of the increase in the
    federal inmate population, between 1985 to 2000, and more than half of
    the increase in the state prison population.

    The drug war has been brutal, but those who live in white communities
    have little clue to the devastation wrought. This war has been waged
    almost exclusively in poor communities of color, even though studies
    consistently show that people of all colors use and sell illegal drugs
    at remarkably similar rates. In fact, some studies indicate that white
    youths are significantly more likely to engage in illegal drug dealing
    than black youths. They also have about three times the number of
    drug-related visits to the emergency room as their African American
    counterparts.

    That is not what you would guess, though, when entering our nation's
    prisons and jails, overflowing as they are with black and brown drug
    offenders. In some states, African Americans comprise 80-90% of all drug
    offenders sent to prison....

  • Jack_Reacher

    Unfortunately, this response is probably going to be looked upon as "racist". So be it.

    Take a look at a world map where blacks are the major portion of the population and control the area. Then take a look at the crime and horrible condition that black controlled cities and towns are in. Pencils and books are replaced by machetes and guns. Brutal and horrific crime is the norm. (Rwanda, Somalia & Uganda, just to name a few). This is the African's at their worst. As our inner cities continue to disintegrate being mainly occupied by minorities, they are becoming war zones and should be designated by the government to warn anyone straying into the area. Does that sound like America to you?

    As the article stated: Blacks need to save themselves. Until that happens it is only going to get worse. Stop blaming "whitey"... We're the one footing the bill.

  • jmsmaxwell

    My Great Great Grandfather fough on the side of the South in the Civil War. As far as family records
    go he did not own any slaves. But regardless of that I do not have guilt about what happened back
    then. When I was being brough up my Father taught me to deal with each man on an individual
    basis and not based upon their race. He was born and raised in Texas and worked in the Oilfield.
    When I was in the AF I met and worked with many people of different races, the only thing that
    concerned me was that they were Americans. When I was in the military the only thing I was concerned about was that the guy next to me was an American and he had my back. We lived in barracks and
    worked together. When I retired from the military and returned to civilian life I discoverd that racism
    had reared its ugly head in my country. The hatred spewed by the left acusign any and all who did
    not kowtow to blacks, then they had the Affirmitive action program which ment they had to hire black
    workers over others workers even if they were less qualified to do the job. The mentality of the
    Left Wing Liberals had one again ignored the quality of the man and put race first. Every time
    we turn around it is politicans who spew racial divide and hatred.

  • JeanB

    I find we lash out most about the things we see in others that we fear WE are quilty of. I know several liberals that are among the worst racists. Treating any minority as you would an idiot or a child. These same people always see race as a reason because someones race is ALL they see. They foster the idea these "inferior" people could not survive without "their" protection. And aren't THEY just the most wonderful people as they often remind everyone. Sounds a bit like the master on the liberal plantation.
    If you are a liberal and want to see a racist....go look in a mirror.

  • Corsica

    It was back in the "we-shall-overcome-days" or soon after that an unwritten "black code" or "ghetto constitution" was fashioned and slowly adopted whereby a black was perceived as trying to be "white" or acting like they're better than other blacks by speaking correctly, studying, learning and doing good in school, being polite and decent, having manners, showing courtesy, respecting property, being conscientious etc. They were vilified and condemned. It was also after the civil rights movement that crime skyrocketed in cities across the country because it was the minorities' right to get back at white society for past injustices that libs keep trumpeting for decades after. I live in a town with a large Indian, Filipino and Eqyptian population. They are very wary of blacks and do not like them in their neighborhoods.

  • http://twitter.com/OldRedWing Tom Martin Morofski

    The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King would be sickened beyond words if he were to see what the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have done as well as so very many other Lib-Dems such as the Waters woman in California and the Jackson woman in Mississippi, I believe. There are no secrets to decency, morality and self-accountability not to mention integrity. A wise man once taught that CHARACTER is who you are when no one but God is watching you. The NAACP and the congressional Black Caucus should hang their heads in shame as they accept their responsibility for inner city high school graduation rates and the total destruction of the families in the black community.
    My hometown of Detroit, Michigan is the all-time "classic" example of exactly how NOT TO blow millions upon millions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars, all the while making matters ten times worse!

    Back in the day, many men, and women, wore hats. Jacquelin Kennedy wore a pillbox hat in 1961. FDR,
    Harry S. Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower, wore hats. If you remember the classic crime drama Adam-
    12, the LAPD cops, Reed and Malloy, wore hats, even their black and white squad car. Cowboys wore
    hats. Every President, except for Zachary Taylor, wore a hat. Zachary Taylor didn't wear a hat and died of
    pneumonia a month after taking office. Even the most hated man in history, Der Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, wore
    a top hat. Hats, more than clothes, make the man.

    Right on. I have many black friends who are dear to my heart. This has NOTHING to do with color...it's all about character. Yes, there are some who are racist and hate blacks they don't even know. I grew up with a similar situation. My grandparents immigrated from Italy and LOTS of American's did not like Italians back then. But that didn't stop them from working hard. They didn't blame Americans for their failures...they didn't fail. My grandparents work their butts off...succeeded and became accepted when people came to know them personally. They saw their character...they were God-fearing, hard working people and I'm proud to say they passed their legacy down to their children. My aunts and uncles all worked very hard and did well. They did not sit back and do nothing but complain. I think too many, not just blacks, are looking for handouts and these are the ones who are angry with those who have succeeded. One of God's curses was that man labor in the fields...we ALL MUST WORK to be blessed. We are not all loved, but we don't use that as an excuse to be angry or violent. We all must take responsibility for our actions and stop blaming others when we mess up. When you point one finger at someone, you have 3 pointing back at you!!!

    Separate but equal was never equal, racism was rampant then and exists now, 'some' legislation was needed, and the civil rights movement, per se, did not destroy either black independence or some of the more successful black middle-class and upper-class infrastructures that had developed previous to the civil rights legislation of the 60s. Other than some of these general points the author is right on in much of what is written. The socialist (progressive) movement and liberal leaders, both black and white, that saw political advantage, power, and money in passing more and more separative and enslaving legislation in the name of civil rights, did destroy any chance for less racism, more equity and greater chance at equality in American society. It could be easily claimed that those who cry racism so easily fit the very definition of racism. Those who often claim to just be giving a hand up and wanting to equalize possibility of competition, are giving hand outs to keep their constituency enslaved, holding to them. As one said, "the Great Society" and other grand social engineering schemes since have had a great deal to do with the black culture taking the brunt of what I would call our overall deteriorating society. JFK would not recognize the Democrat party and I believe MLK would be aghast in the direction many of his "lieutenants" have taken.

    Great write. Very accurate. But I'm afraid it is probably to late. We need a bloody race war to cleanse. Thats the the only way Blacks will understand. Cut well fair off at the hip. Force them to fix their own problems. We also need to segregate until they get it together.Not sorry.

    I had a close friend once. He was black and I white. We were both in the Air Force, and stationed together. He was very smart, he was cool, he was laid back. We hung out together, shot pool, played cards, hit some of the clubs. We did the normal stuff airmen did during their off time. We talked about our homes and our families and friends. We had intelligent conversations about God, country, honor, world events. I really enjoyed his company and he appeared to enjoy mine. One day a group of black airmen were walking through the day room and I notice my friend with them. I walked towards them to say hello to my friend. They all looked at me and one of them said, what do you want whitey? I said I just wanted to say hello to my friend. They said, you have no friends here, isn't that right? They all, including my friend, said no - no friends here. Then they all left. I was shocked and felt gut-punched.
    Later that day I ran into my friend, this time he was alone. He told me he could not be seen talking to me or he would be considered an outcast by his people. He walked away and we never talked again after that. A few months later he got transferred and I never seen or heard from him again.
    I on the other hand got a letter from the my First Sargent to report to race sensitivity training. It seemed one of his friends reported me for being racist. I never did find out what I supposedly said or done but off to the class I went. The First Sargent was also black and I had really looked up to him. I found out later in a conversation with him, that he hated whites and could not wait to retire and go back home to be around his own.
    I have learned over the years that there is a prejudice among blacks against whites, against Hispanics, against Asians, against Jews, and anyone else not like them. They even have a prejudice amongst themselves, according to their shade of black. They call themselves by shade, yellow, red, black, brown and so on. They will stick together against non-blacks but they have inter-shade prejudice issues. They can't stand it if one family in the neighborhood has a cleaner, neater yard, and will go during the night an vandalize that yard. They say, how dare they try to make the rest of us look bad.
    They bully each other worst than any other group I have seen.
    In the hood, you either do drugs, sell drugs, or keep quite. You either belong to a gang, be a victim of the gang and most of all, be quite. You commit crimes, help those who commit crimes, or be quite.
    Don't dare be part of the solution, be part of the problem, and be quite.
    They have problems and it isn't because of the white, (although a small very part is), the biggest problem is themselves. They can either rise above the problems and help others to rise up or they, as a race are doomed.
    I look at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a great man, a man of God, and I wonder how disappointed he must be with his race.
    A race that have such as the Tuskegee Airmen, Navy Master Diver Carl Brashear, William Carney, the first African-American recipient of the Congressional
    Medal of Honor, Specialist/SFC Lawrence Joel, served in the U.S. Army in both the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and received the Silver Star and the Medal of Honor for his heroism in a battle, I could go on and on. In both the civilian world and in the military, there are many "Men of Honor" among the black community. They would be ashamed of what the men and women of the black community today are doing to themselves and to the dignity of a people.
    I, as an American, am proud of my heritage. To have men and women such as the Tuskegee Airmen, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, George Washington Caver, Abraham Lincoln, Booker T. Washington, John F. Kennedy, Harriet Tubman, Thomas Jefferson, Carl Brashear, John Adams, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, William Carney, Guion Bluford, Neil Armstrong, Mea Jemison, Charley Pride, Ulysses S. Grant. All great Americans that we can all be proud of. We may never measure up to what they accomplished in their lives, as Americans, as human beings. We dishonor them if we do not do everything in our power to hold this great nation together as brothers and sisters, as Americans. Side by side, Browns, Black, White, Yellow, Red, and everything in between. We are all creatures of a Great and Powerful God and we are made in His image.
    WE ARE "ONE NATION UNDER GOD" !

    The WAR ON TERROR

    Ignorant Liberal Democrats embrace the WAR ON POVERTY and generally demonize the other two.

    Ignorant Conservative Republicans demonize the WAR ON POVERTY, but embrace the WAR ON DRUGS and WAR ON TERROR.

    These three phony "WARS" have enabled the massive growth of Government and were necessary for the destruction of prosperity.and freedom in America in order to bring about Global Government.

  • ULTOR

    The "Civil Rights Act" was not "LBJ's." The Bill was authored by Ike's administration not Kennedy or Johnsons, it was infact filibustered by then Majority Leader Johnson when Ike introduced it. When Johnson was in the White House, the Bill was re-introduced, but it was not passed by the Democrats, only 30% of the Demecrats supported the Bill in the House and Senate. The Bill originaly authored by Ike's administration only passed in the Johnson administration because of the over 60% of the Republicans in the congress.
    The deaths of Kennedy, King, and X, assured that the Bill was hijact by what Malcolm called "The white libral wolves of the north." This is also the very moment that gave rise to Sharpton and Jackson whom have made it clear that "racism" will never die in America, until they meet their maker (soon hopefully). As for the "Minister Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr" well, it was his own people that killed Malcolm wasn't it?
    Until people of color (like myself) are willing to give up the the failed ideology of interdependence and stop arguing for policy based on color of skin, King's orison will continue to fall on racist ears!

  • f8tul

    Excellent article.. not racist at all... Well done by looking at the statistics through out the years. I lived in the ghetto for a couple of years and I have to say what I saw was nothing short of evil. The blacks kept blaming whitey, but were just talking about the government.. Once they were actually talking bad about a black congressman and until I spoke up and said he was black, they kept saying Whitey...

    It seems to be born and bred into them.. I couldn't stand it, for it made me sad to see and hear what I was seeing.. I tried to get my friends to a better place in life,,,ie. not blaming anyone but themselves and to try to bring up their image as only they could... some it worked for and some it didn't ... I effectively watched one of my best friends die from this life and he was one of the people on this earth that liked you for who you are, and not the the color of your skin...

    It is possible.. RIP Dave!!!

    Some of the problem of black culture is due to whites: liberal/progressive white's and their paternalistic and condescending laws that they wrote in the hopes of enslaving blacks forever. Ok, perhaps some were idealistic do-gooders. But they were also just tools of a more sinister few elites. Blacks could be so, so much better if they just became Americans.

    I beleive if you google it you will find the first slave owner in America was Anthony Johnson. Just type in his name. Up until that time everyone was a bond servent. Meaning they paid your way here and you worked for them until what was owed was paid. Mr. Johnson refuse to release his bondservent and when sue the courts sided in his favor. Mr. Johnson was a black man. And it is true that there were black plantation owners.
    I do not bed young blacks so don't blame me for their illiget kids.

    I remember about 20 years ago, when feminists were advocating that rape be made a Federal hate crime, that the FBI Uniform Crime Report for 1991 (the most complete information available at the time) indicated that in cases of interracial rape, there were some 9,800 cases of black men attacking white women and just 10 cases of white men attacking black women.
    I never heard anything further about rape being classified as a hate crime after that.
    Also, I used to work at a gas station near Detroit, and as you might imagine, it got robbed a few times. Of the eight times we got hit when I was there, six of the perpetrators were black.

    No, you're not racist. The people who are racist are blacks like Morgan Freeman & others who still wave the race card.

    They sewed a wind and reaped a whirwind.
    White people should quite sucking up to blacks as we owe them nothing other than the way they treat us. They have no monopoly on the "pity me" game, they are using this as an excuse. They know what they need to do, so let them do it. They need to be responsible for their own actions. Color is no excuse. If they do not, as any other ethnic should do, like this country, leave it.

  • Keith Bell

    I agree. I have a lot of black s who are among my best friends, but even they admit a lot of blacks take advantage of the system and yell, "discrimination" to get whatever they want. Of course there are many whites who are taking advantage of a government who believes that the only way to solve a problem is to hand out tax payers' money and special privileges.

  • Delores109

    GARY DeMAR,
    Thank you for a truthful, well-written article. I want to add a sentence, "Black people are being used." It is so easy to live life saying, "See, what everyone did to me? It is harder to take responsibility for living your own lives, but it makes you feel great when you do." There are people, like Obama, who are eager to make you dependent upon them by throwing food stamps at you and causing unemployment. This is because if they weaken you, they own you. I doubt that any black people want to be slaves again. What Obama is doing to you is a form of slavery. He owns you and your votes. It is not being done out of love. He wants to control blacks and whites with George Soros. They in turn want control of the world's oil for greater POWER. God Bless blacks, whites, and God Bless America.

    The word racist or racism is thrown around absolutely too much and I find it offensive to make the charge as much as people do today. It is 'character' - not 'color' - that matters. Besides, racism is a sin. Respect of persons is a sin...James 2:9. Getting right with Jesus would be a real good start at ending racism.

    All of the comments are very true. Unforturnately the black leadership is going along with Big Government and hand outs. A good way to break the trend is to get the blacks that broke out of this challenge and made a great life for themself and their families to help promote self-respect.

They live high-off-the-hog on the backs of the blacks who fall prey to the hate-talk & end up generation after generation, mired in the same pity-party thrown by the same ilk of politician & race baiters.
    It's shameful, and yet nobody seems to have the guts to talk about the horrendous stats found in this article & the huge amount of human potential squandered because the blacks will NOT get beyond the blame-whitey excuse.
    Until more folks like Bill Cosby start telling it like it is, the blacks will never accept reality & get on with the American dream, as Dr. King envisioned so many years ago.

    I was in D.C. in 1963, marching with Dr. King. I am a white male. Now I am a 70-year-old white male, looking back on the hijacking of the Civil Rights movement. This is not the "equality" I was marching for. Our "post racial" present occupant of the White House has done more to divide this country along racial lines than 150 years of "separate but equal" could ever have imagined.Witness the Democrat campaign ads aimed at the Black population; if the Republicans aimed an ad at Whites like that, there would be rioting in the street from New York City to San Francisco.

    In a way, blacks are right when they contend that their problems have been caused largely by whites. White liberals, whose inane thought processes have formed governmental policy over at least the last 60 years, are the root cause of the disarray in the black community. If you choose to ignore that fact, you might as well look in the western sky to see the sun rise tomorrow.

    Our current government over the last years have make it possible for blacks (not whites - that's against the law) to get more money and benefits from handouts than keeping a job. Also, the government hires their quota of 'minorities" because of skin color and no other qualification. Our office was told by Washington that we didn't have enough "face of America". So, a job that needs one person is covered by several persons of color. Believe me, I am talking from experience. Our budget department went from one budget person to a staff of six, with a Chief of Budget in charge, with one non black contract person actually doing the work of the six. Sad, but true. In the government, it is the skin color that get moved up the ladder, while non blacks do the work. The blacks are too busy going to black organization meetings (that's also aganist the law to have white orgainizations) in Law Vegas, Miami, etc. All paid for by the governament with tax dollars from actual workers. Right now most of the Federal agencies are top staffed by screw up move up personnell and blacks. Government looks worse every day.

    President Obama has done more to separate whites and blacks today than anyone else alive. He uses the race card, every chance he gets, even though he said he wouldn't. He has taught us how much black America hates white America. Instead of leaving a good taste in our mouths about our first Black president, he has made America fear his agenda and fear the way he shreds the constitution with every act he does. I think whtie America might think twice about electing another black president if they attended the same church he did, and was friends with the anti American scum he is friends with. We need someone like Condalisa Rice or perhaps Collin Powell who love this country and would follow the rule of law. We all gave Obama a chance, and hoped his "hope and change" would amount to something. His sharp turn to the left (off the charts) is hurting our economy, our reputation with other nations, and is causing our former friends in other countries to think twice about their friendship with our nation. He has shredded the constitution and is standing upon the shreds with his very "dirty" and "unworthy" person. Shame on him and shame on the complicite media who have never fully vetting him, and shame on us for not looking before we leaped. We need an independent media to fully vet him this time. Shame on any American who votes in favor of giving Obama 4 more years to destroy our country.

    The first step in solving a problem is to realize what the problem is. The second is to make a plan of action to solve it and the third is to take action! This is a great article on the first step. If you have a problem you have to own up to it and take your own action! As a white male I would support any black leader who is willing to take step one, two and three.

  • r kammerdiener

    the civil rights movement was a good thing i find it funny how the whites who marched with them are never told of any more. it is the civil rights leaders who became corrupted by the democratic plege of washington , lining the civil rights leaders pockets with money, the leaders of the civil rights became uncle tom's and do what they can to apease the democratic party now days. before the civil rights movement it was the republicain party fighting for civil rights and equality for all americans. but when kennedy befriended martin luther( a great black civil right leader and even a greater man) martin luther king changed from republican to democrate. before this you could not find a black democrate and kennedy knew the civil rights would be achieved with or with out him so he did the next best thing by supporting it to keep and reassure his presidency. (smart move for a politician) in doing so he would reassure his second term. unfortunately it was the democratic party members who insured to continue to stop it here in the south with the kkk and other organizations which lead to both of their assinations. but by then it was to late to stop the civil rights so they buyed off the civil rights leaders to create a government hand out system to corrupt the black pride and dignity. the only way to fix these problems is by teaching the morality of God to our children and stop the black white things. american can over turn the injustice our government has created by allowing God back in the schools and government. and when blacks , whites and hispanics all understand that when we are saved christians we become children of God and there for we become all brothers and sister Through Christ, then we can govern ourselves as a family who loves and cares for each other . but i know the only time this will happen is when the return of Christ comes and every head will bow and every knee will neal. for i have many black , white, hispanic brothers and sisters out there and do care for them all. and some day we will join in heaven with the eternal pease full of love and grace.

    • EyesWideOpen

      Finally, some Truth that we can all agree upon. Hatred comes from the evil one and love is of God. If you are a hater, no matter what color, you are a son of Satan. If you have love and compassion and are a peacemaker, then you are a child of God.
      I have been in both Black and White churches and found many God fearing and loving human beings. I have also seen the same people who sign praises to God and then with that same mouth curse someone because of their color, or because they have more than they do.
      Racism is a tool of evil and perpetrated by evil men. Greed and envy are also tools of evil.
      Remember Jesus died for all men, for Black, White, Brown, Yellow and Red. He loves us that much and He wants us to love each other the same way.

    This is the best article that I have read on "Race" in a long, long, time. It uses very good mental images, ie: the Rev. King march in Washington, where the black men and women dressed with "respect". I'm old enough to remember those days, but at the time, it never crossed my mind. (I was in high school) It sure is totally different today, with "their" music, dress, language, attitude, disrespect of women in general, skyrocketing single parent families, on, and on. Their best chance of salvation is going to have to be from within. Rev's(???) Farrahkan, Jackson, and Sharpton do absolutely nothing but incite and inflame "hatred of whitey" If it weren't for their race baiting, they would be impotent nobodies. All three have made a good living off of their hate mongering, and as long as they have ears willing to accept their vile trash, they will continue to peddle it. Case in point, David Duke, of the KKK.

    Black society itself is fragmented. Wealthy blacks don't want to live with ghetto rats anymore than whites. Once blacks become successful, they look down on the non-producing welfare blacks because they know the hardwork that went into their success, just like whites. Do you see rappers living in the ghetto? How about black Hollywood elites? Or black athletes? Or black politicians? Or the new breed of radical, affirmative-action educated college professors? They want to heap guilt on successful whites by pushing the liberal agenda, without having to get too close to the rabble. How come the black 1% doesn't dig into their pockets to support their own, instead of demanding it from everyone else? Because they know it's a lost cause to throw their money at people that don't deserve nor appreciate it. White guilt is easier.

    Of course all these stats are correct. Without the black/hispanic numbers this country would have lower murder and all violent crime that the gun outlawing countries in Europe...even close to Japan. If I have to be a racist to know it and discuss it -- then so be it. We whites will stand up for ourselves sooner or later and I want to be in the sooner group. If we are going to be a minority I hope we are a minority that will fight for our families with great courage and vigor. We are spending our lives and fortunes sending children to schools and universities to be brainwashed in progressive socialist racist propaganda. I urge parents to use efforts to take great care in education of children. Don't fund it all, make them work as much as possible. Let us make this an exciting era to be proud of our ancestry. My wife is Oriental ( she hates the use of Asian as an identifier because it is not distinct enough). She agrees she must be racist-- if it means we are so called because we recognize the obvious.

    It was so nice when I grew up, crime was not something to be concerned about. There was no such
    thing as hate crime, even hate was almost a foreign word. When I grew up whites went to one
    school system and blacks the other, the whites shopped at one end of town and blacks the other.
    We could leave home on saturday and not bother to lock the front door, people had respect for
    other peoples possesions. We had respect for other people period. everything seemed to be
    peaceful, yes maybe blacks had lower paying jobs, but their jobs were better than the jobs
    held by their fathers. Black income was slowly getting better as was whites. But then these"know it
    alls" from the north, midwest, wherever came around and really started this "race war" so to speak.
    They were telling the blacks how bad society, "white society" was treating them, how they were
    being held back, how their education wasn't on the same level as whites, and on and on. And so
    ended peaceful America. I never heard racial slurs from either side until then. And it was all started
    by the black hate mongers. They told the black community that things had to be equal, well things were almost at that point, but then they told the blacks that things had to be more than equal.They hated anything that wasn't black. And now I hear racial statements from both sides, but more from the blacks.
    And it looks like it will only get worse. I have had some friends who happened to be black, and they
    have told me how in their churches, the young girls are told how to ride the system, how to get
    welfare, food stamps etc, and what to say and to whom. I worked a job that would put me in black homes, and all I saw on the walls were pictures of John Kennedy, MLK and a black Jesus. O)h by
    the way MLK was as racist as they came, he just used coded words that only blacks truely
    understood.

    As a Black American, who detests the phrase "african-american" your words ring deafeningly true! The sad thing about this is that those words don't sound as loudly out of the mouths of the so-called "african-american" leadership that the media always looks to for analysis. The truth is that if racism were completely eliminated tomorrow, future generations of Blacks in the urban regions of our country would be no better off than they are today. As a person who attended the March On Washington, I've seen the demise of the sense of self-pride that was so evident then and the rise of the sense of entitlement that is so pervasive among the cultural elites. It's this dynamic that results in the dismal statistics that you presented. The really disheartening fact is that this dynamic is at work in the white community as well! The very fabric of our society is being unraveled before our eyes! Does the phrase "backwaters of history" sound prophetic?

    The Indians lived through racism (okay a lot of them did not live through it), but they are here in the United States and I have not heard any racism words come from them. So I ask the Blacks, do you think you are better than the Indians? You are NOT!!! You blacks have destroyed your own image by being so racist. A large majority of blacks that are well educated will not even walk into a bad part of the black community. Your schools are putting out students that cannot write their name & math is a big impossibility for them. You black parents have brought this on yourself. While they were growing up you never tried to help them w/ their school work. The only way they know how to make a living is by robbing, stealing, killing or turn to prostitution, etc. Its the parents fault. The white people are not to blame for your neglect.

    There is some truth to this article. But do know that some of this is residual from preconceived notions some white people have. Such as the person who posted here that "black kids cause problems in class rooms". No more than whites kids do. My pastor works with the prison system and had been told by judges that a young white make is less likely to be locked away because he has more resources to rehabilitate his life. Yes we blacks shouldn't depend on the government to help us out but should depend on God. Yet whites should at least acknowledge the fact that there are residual effects of generations off slavery on the family core and that we are not that far removed from those years. There were a lot of successful blacks then and there are many now. But that did not and does not represent the entire black race. Also to note there are more whites on welfare than blacks...

So, lets be honest and state the whole scenario. . . All people, Black and White that are in the welfare system need to have a way out. . . Need is need, but greed is greed, and I feel that there are a lot of folks in the welfare ranks that do not need the assistance but take it because they can. . . Welfare should be there for those that truly need our help and the others are just freeloaders, Black or White. . . The "residual effects" you speak of in terms of slavery, are quite frankly wearing thin on folks. . . Perhaps when Black folks can say "this is a new day" and look at life from a different perspective, things will progress for the better.

    @b0377d98e3b5c6116e0bb7e541ade3a1:disqus No, the civil rights movement didn't destroy it. What destroyed was people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, & the Democrat party. They were treated like animals BEFORE civil rights started. If Dr. King hadn't been assassinated, it would be a totally different atmosphere, I believe. Dr. King was a Christian, first & foremost, then he was a black American. He was not an African-American. That's part of the problem too. They were originally from Africa, just as most of us were from another country, but they are the only race that still considers themselves of a different country. They were treated horribly before civil rights, & I remember seeing a lot of it on t.v. It didn't get much better for a long time either. However, we finally started to make a change in things, when along came Jackson, Sharpton, & the rest of them.Bill Cosby has made more than one speech TO the blacks telling them a lot of the things in this article. Only he said it a whole lot better, plus he wasn't being funny either. He was dead serious. And. our government has done all it can to KEEP them enslaved to that mentality that was pre civil rights. There are still racists on both sides, but the majority of whites AND blacks want to work together & make our country what our forefathers intended it to be. I know a lot of the forefathers were slave owners, & racists, but all of that happened a couple of centuries ago, when NONE of us were alive. Until WHITE people stop telling blacks that they should be 'THANKFUL' to them for what they have, blacks are going to keep feeling that shame & hatred they feel. God didn't intend for one race to HATE another. He intended us to love one another, as fellow human beings.

    I'm sure Booker T. Washington (1856–1915) had LBJ, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. and their kind in mind more than a century ago:
    “I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”
    The paternal state not only feeds its children, but nurtures, educates, comforts, and disciplines them, providing all they need for their security. This appears to be a mildly insulting way to treat adults, but it is really a great crime because it transforms the state from being a gift of God, given to protect us against violence, into an idol. . . . The paternalism of the state is that of the bad parent who wants his children dependent on him forever. That is an evil impulse. The good parent prepares his children for independence, trains them to make responsible decisions, knows that he harms them by not helping them to break loose. The paternal state thrives on dependency. When the dependents free themselves, it loses power. It is, therefore, parasitic on the very persons whom it turns into parasites.

    This is far more complicated and complex than this article suggests. There are a myriad of issues that lend themselves to this problem. For example media portrayal of blacks isn't always representative of us and sometimes it is the only black people that whites will know. Many of which this article leaves out. Although there is much to learn from it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Linda-Hopkins/100000549373037 Linda Hopkins

      Terrance, The Media has been misleading people of every race for some time now. . . Speaking from a White perspective, one of the best things that the Black folks could do to gain respect amongst all other ethnic groups, is to stand up and tell Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton to shut up and that they do not speak for Blacks in general. . . They seem to be the self appointed mouthpiece for Blacks. . . That may NOT be the case, but enough Black folks need to say that as that is what most other people seem to think. . . Rev. Jackson used to be a little kinder and gentler person. . . Here of late he is right in there with Al Sharpton spewing nothing but hate and contempt for "White people", not any other ethnic group, just Whites. . . A brief synopsis by the author into some of the problems plaguing the Black community, both individually and collectively surely cannot be expected to have all the answers. . . I think the gist of the article is that there are problem areas that are not being addressed by the Black community. . . One cannot make blanket statements in regard to "all" Blacks do this, or "all" Blacks do that. . . Remember that there are White folks that would like to help in any way they can. . . It just seems that any offering of help has only been used as a temporary "stopgap" measure and only seems to breed the need for more and more of the same. . . Please spread the word, "democrats are NOT your friends !" . . Why do Black folks believe the democrats ? . . They were NEVER your friend or ally. . .They instituted slavery, fought to keep it, drug their feet every time they could have done something for the Black man, and through their ability to get the Black vote have actually kept Blacks enslaved through all of the handout programs. . . The Black man doesn't need a loaf of bread, he needs a good job so he can buy his own ! . . I think training programs would be better than handouts in the long run. . . I would hope you agree.

    The intrusion of overkill in all things has destroyed individuality. Hence, the titles of racist, hater, bully, right-wing, etc., are used to silent objectors. Now, no one keeps score - everyone is a winner! The meek have become the masters!

    America has given the Blacks everything - freedom, education, racial quotas for
    jobs and schooling, and equality whereever possible. In many cases the
    discrimination has been against the whites for giving too much to the blacks
    who are in many cases not qualified for what they get at the expense of someone
    more qualified.

    If Blacks have a racial issue then it is the
    Blacks who are pushing it. I no longer have any sympathy. They have had 3
    generations to get their act together and they still claim we owe them. There are no more slaves and we do not owe
    them anything else.

    I believe 90% of black people are hard working god fearing and just people as are the same % of other races,the problem is politicians and other self interest groups and individuals whom feel they can gain from racial conflict.Too bad there still those few who continue to teach their children to be racist,and it is not just whites whom are guilty of this and I don't believe it will ever change.

    The mentality of many young male Blacks when it comes to responsiblity and accountability is nil to none. The perfect example is that 30-something Black man who has fathered 30 children by 11 stupid women and says he can't or rather refuses to pay child support. How's that for a role model?!
    Bill Cosby has been saying this for years and he's come under scrutiny by the Liberal Black community and so-called Black leaders. Deneen Borelli has written a book about this subject and she has been called extremely vile names. And Allen West has spoken out and he's been vilified as well.
    Look at the guy occupying the White House. He's the epitome of the typical Liberal Black man who blames the White man for all his (and all Blacks') ills, who never accepts responsibility, or never holds himself accountable.
    Oblamo is just a mirror image of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, and the New Black Panthers. Why do you think America is in the mess its in???

  • Jim Blackbrn

    This discussion goes all over the place and winds up nowhere. All races in the USA system of 'education' are in the privvies because so few of us understand the US Constitution. This monument of governance created a new race, not of color but rather of attitude: the American is responsible, independent, tolerant, and a full citizen. This creative act took more than a signing ceremony in the 18th century, but that is when it started. The objective of the new nationality began to come into view during the post-civil war experience and is now visible to all who have unprejudiced eyes to see what's in front of them. The prejudiced, of either stripe, cannot see Obama for the citizen he has no interest in being demonstrated by those to assume that opposition to him is a racial attitude as opposed to a political judgment. That is why I can only be conservative and feel that conservatism is the most progressive position possible whereas the statist positions are all thoroughly retrograde and therefore socially and politically reprehensible.

    I have found those that cry "racist" the loudest and most often, are the true racists ! . . . I don't think Blacks are the only ethnic group that needs help. I believe there are other groups as well, but regardless, they are first going to have to pick up the ball and make an attempt to run with it. . . Maybe some of the Black cultural leaders could aid in educating other Blacks in regard to carving out a place in society alongside the other ethnic groups that have come here, and found their way. . . Whenever you say anything and add the term "Black", you are in danger of being called a racist. . . . Jewish people are by and large frugal and good at making money ! . . Heard that one before ? . . Is it racist ? . . Not really if based on truth. . . . German people make good machinists because they are mechanically gifted ! . . . Italian people are good family people and like to make/eat good food ! But you'd better not cross one, or Cousin' Tony may pay you a visit ! . . . Everyone knows that Dutch people are extremely clean, or why else would they be called "Scrubby Dutch" ? . . . Rightly or wrongly they have been labeled by society in certain disciplines and just go on about their business. . . However if you say that in general, maybe Blacks ARE better athletes than most other ethnic groups, it is never taken as a compliment. . . You are just being racist ! . . . Most people are about ready to give up on the Blacks. . . I don't mean to be racist, but come on, somewhere along the line they are going to have to step it up. . . It's the old addage of doing the same thing over and over, while expecting different results. . . . Programs designed to "enable" have served more to "disable". . . The Black folks that have gotten busy and made something of themselves are always welcomed by White people ! . . . Heck, I'd vote for Allen West over Mitt O'romney any day ! . . . Maybe C. Rice in the cabinet ? . Why not ? . . . Personally, I'm tired of the fact that I am supposed to feel guilty ! . . I have never owned any slaves, nor would I have even in the day of slavery. . . I have never tried to keep a Black person down. . . Perhaps the guilt and non-success lies on the Black man's back and truly IS his own burden. . . When they step out and become tired of being on the receiving end of handouts, and realize that democrats aren't and never were their friends, and want to carve their niche' in our society, many White folks will be willing to jump in and help. . . I know I will ! . . . Oh, wait a minute, I forgot "White men can't jump !"

    Gary is dead on... as someone who grew up in the 'hood... Too much emphasis on social justice (which is communist, marxist in origin), not enough emphasis on the real problem- Blacks have forgotten God. Whites need to stand up and take the fight to the race hustlers and their liberal acolytes...
    Blacks must realize there truly is no such thing as a free lunch- Whites must realize that racial harmony will only exist when they stand up for themselves and demand that everyone step up to the AMERICAN standard... not this nonsense being accepted now... we as Americans period must do better than this.

  • el_loco_jp

    But Blacks cannot give up the mantle of "victim". If they do they will then lose their "it's the white's fault" excuse for any of their failures and have to show personal responsibility and demonstrate self reliance. Then they won't be able to sponge off the rest of society and will have to provide for themselves as individuals. Gawd what a rude awakening that would be.

    I don't blame whites for black on black crime, or any other crime committed by blacks, unless it is robbery due to being laid off from a job due to discrimination. I am scared of black men (and I'm a black female) and have not dated any for years now. I am just as fearful of Hispanics. Back in the 70s and before, blacks were not the way they are now. I don't know whether it's the violent gangsta-rap/hip hop culture or what, but blacks - black men especially - simply engage in more crime. And it's a shame. My grandfathers never had a police record, worked to support their families...both my younger sister have children by men who DO NOT WORK (one even sells drugs)! I don't understand it. It's like black Americans don't want anything out of life. They just want to drink 40 ounces of beer, ride around in fixed up old cars, sell drugs, shoot guns, kill people, and die or go to prison.
