I am getting sick and tired of everyone condemning the Confederate flag because of their own racist views, not those of others. It seems that those screaming the loudest are in fact the most racist. All they see is race. Their blind to history and reality and they want everyone else to pay and suffer for their own racial hatred.
Case in point is what is happening to Tanya Russo Landry, an elementary school teacher. Earlier this month she posted her thoughts about the removal of the Confederate Flag and the double standard of racism in America on her personal Facebook page:
“I totally think it should not be taken down as history is history.”
“I lived in SC for 10 years and looked at the flag as part of its history … not hatred. I’m so tired of everyone being offended by the smallest things. We live in America for freedoms, not making sure everyone is not offended.”
“Is taking a flag down really going to solve our nation’s important problems? I highly doubt it. I’m so tired of feeling ‘blamed’ for things because I’m white.”
“As a teacher I often keep my opinions to myself, but I’m tired of being the same way with adults. I’m offended because I don’t get free college because of my color. Slavery is over and has been … I had nothing to do with it neither did any of my immediate family.”
“I’m tired of these ‘history months’ as it all should just be celebrated together. If I pull a race card I’m racist, but if a black pulls a race card we pucker our a**** and get scared.”
“Isn’t it about time we just act like Americans in America and treat everyone equally? Don’t like my post, tough sh*t. It’s my freedom of speech and I’m allowed to say what I wish. Don’t like it, I hurt your feelings, delete me please cuz I’m not holding my tongue anymore for whiny a** bi***es. Throws the mic down and walks away.”
Of course, the very double standard racists she was addressing did take offense to her comments and branded her a white racist. Facebook, which is a very liberally controlled website responded by taking Landry’s page down. School district officials have made it known that they will be speaking to Landry about her Facebook posts.
One person who objected to her post stated that teachers should be held to a higher standard because they teach our kids.
Oh really, I wonder what that person says about black teachers who teach and promote racial hatred in our schools and colleges? I’ve seen and read many accounts of black and Hispanic teachers berating whites and uttering their racist venom in classrooms all over the country, but rarely are they attacked.
Has Facebook taken down the page of those who condemn the Confederate flag using their own racism? I haven’t heard of any. It’s okay to be racist if you’re black or siding with the media promoted racial hatred, but if you dare speak out against them and you are white, then you better look out because they can’t handle the truth and will come after you.
This is the double standard that Landry was referring to and that I’ve written about on more than one occasion. This teacher is being accused and punished for ‘perceived’ racism because she spoke the truth about what’s happening in America today.
