NEWT IS RIGHT: IT'S MORE DANGEROUS TO BE BLACK IN AMERICA THAN WHITE
But as statistics overwhelmingly and tragically show blacks have far more to fear from each other than from whites, or from anyone else in America. Why? Because of the unique nationwide collapse of entire black communities into lawlessness, anarchy and anything goes immorality with black on black murder, rape, theft and violent crime worsening by the year the nightmare of deadly, strife-torn inner city life. Why? It's not anti-black bigotry or cops killing blacks (both of which have greatly declined over the last 50 years) that's causing blacks to violently turn on each other with such vicious animosity. The cause is a cancer inside the black America called welfare liberalism.
Indeed, this crisis is caused by desperate, bankrupt, scapegoating liberals who demonize white Americans as differing little in their mentalities from old Jim Crow Democrats; and exploit the largely self-caused ills and miseries that plague blacks to keep alive the myth that we're a racist nation of privileged white supremacists that's rigged against blacks and oppress them. This utterly false, groundless, divisive lie (disproved by America making Obama the most powerful black man in human history) is advanced to avoid responsibility for the colossal failure of the liberal welfare state-a corrupt and dehumanizing system that traps millions in generational poverty and a web of social pathologies, hopelessness and racist lies.
And the solutions proposed by race obsessed liberals and our clueless, divisive, pro-BLM president are what? Not the moral regeneration of black America starting with the individual and personal responsiblity; not teaching young people to become good productive law-abiding citizens with respect for authority; not ending the spiritually corrosive poison of government dependency that destroys character, the work ethic and the incentive to marry and raise kids normally; what they propose are useless measures that keep the welfare status quo alive such as gun control, reining in police, reforming the criminal justice system and more money for war on poverty programs when trillions have been spent to no avail.
Apart from too few black conservatives in politics, the media, academia and church ministries blacks have no one to lead them out of poverty, illiteracy, drug abuse, crime and the plague of out of wedlock births. As thousands of angry, deluded blacks march across the country protesting the lie of institutional racism and anti-black police violence cops are killed and hurt and the streets of Chicago, Baltimore and South Central LA run red with blood as blacks kill blacks in droves.
The Age of Liberalism is over, bankrupt, finished, done. After 50 years of the War on Poverty moving all the ways to the radical LEFT with catastrophic results blacks have nowhere left to go but RIGHT. Black America is ready for a revolution. In the years ahead you will see an increasing number blacks waking up to the truth about welfare liberalism and joining our ranks realizing that their last best hope for social, economic and spiritual renewal is American Conservatism.
In his October 30 National Review column Jonah Goldberg invokedthe two politicians' family backgrounds to justify his observation that Ben Carson may be "more authentically African-American" than Obama, pointing to the fact that "Obama's mother was white and he was raised in part by his white grandparents," while Carson "grew up in Detroit, the son of a very poor, very hard-working single mother"
When I posted the comment below on Media Matters it sparked a number of lively debates on racism, welfare, inner city life, Martin Luther King and much more.
GOLDBERG AND MORGAN FREEDMAN
In an interview with NPR to promote his latest film, The Magic of Belle Isle, the popular Oscar-winning actor [Morgan Freedman] said that people “conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas,middle of America There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America'sfirst black president hasn't arisen yet. He’s not America’s first blackpresident — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”
And if someone with Obama's coloration and features were to walk into a room right now, what percentage of Americans, Black or White, would immediately assume that he was a White man? Racism is situational. Glenn Beck said that Obama had "a deep-seated hatred for white people." In our culture, President Obama is defined as Black by those who would not see him as White. That and the fact that he was born in Kenya, according to morons like Donald Trump.
Even more idiotic than Trump's harmless birtherism is
our utterly ignorant moron of a president telling comedian Marc Maron the dangerous divisive racist lies that racism is genetic in White America; that Whites are innately anti-black, that it's passed on from generation to generation "through their DNA." If that were true then how does this imbecile account for the fact that our predominantly White "genetically racist" society made him the most powerful black man in human history? With good reason Beck said what he did. Only an anti-White racist could make such a hateful, false statement.
So it's only metaphorical that Obama is supporting an overtly black racist movement organized on the proven leftist lie that America is a white supremacist society with cops across the country leading a murderous race war against poor, suffering, innocent, victimized blacks? In other words, we shouldn't take his support literally?
There is a lot of potted right-wing ideology and distortion in your comment. And you turn the "Black Lives Matter" movement into such a caricature that it can only be a strawman.
White supremacism runs deep in American history. It is real. That doesn't mean that America is necessarily a white supremacist society, but it does mean that there are unacknowledged anti-black biases that often go unacknowledged and have had a corrosive structural effect. Nowhere is this clearer than in policing and in the disproportionate incarceration rates.
Your literalism will be your undoing; it certainly is your unmasking as an idiot.
And it was only metaphorical that Obama sat in the pews of a racist church for 20 years listening to the ravings of his black supremacist mentor (so hateful Oprah couldn't stand him) that God hates the white race? And blacks (God's chosen people) are destined to rule? Oh, that's right, the compulsive liar wasn't there when Wright gave his hateful incendiary sermons.
And it was only metaphorical that Obama supported a violent homophobic black racist gangsta wannabe [Trayvon Martin] who murderously tried to ground and pound an innocentcommunity watchman into unconsciousness and death thinking (as Rachel Jeantel told Piers Morgan) that he was "a gay predator out to rape him"? How despicable, shameful and hypocritical of Obama to say "If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon." Truth is he wouldn't have let his eldest daughter date such a sick, twisted, dangerous kid (see).
And let's not forget that Eric Holder was metaphorically speaking when he said in 2009 that Americans are a "nation of cowards" on racial issues-despite a devastating Civil War claiming 500,000 lives, nationwide support for the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, and a $19 trillion War On (mostly black) Poverty.
BTW, the moral collapse of our inner city ghettos (largely caused by the corrosive social welfare state as FDR warned) disproportionally into the most violent and lawless places in America is what underlie the "disproportionate black incarceration rate." "White Racism" is a scapegoat to hide the catastrophic failure of liberal social welfare policies (with trillions in transferred funds) to end poverty and improve black lives. Instead of the promised conquest of poverty we have more of it and worse than ever as inner city life (once decent, law-abiding communities with strong families and work values) are now progressive created war zones, hell holes and wastelands. The road to hell (and a third world America) is paved with liberal compassion.
Obama said racism is endemic (that is what is meant by the metaphor "in our DNA") to the US, not specifically white people. That is only "patently false" if we ignore...
- the Indian Wars
- Native American reservations
- Japanese internment camps
- Jim Crow laws
- socioeconomic inequality
- voter suppression efforts
- unequal mandatory sentencing laws
- disparate treatment from law enforcement
- chronic poverty
- housing discrimination
- declaring blacks to be only a fraction of a human being in our Constitution
- the 1790 Naturalization Act barring non-whites from becoming citizens
- discrimination against darker Southern European immigrants in the first part of the 20th century
- the intense concern of Trump supporters with immigrants from Latin America, but not the many undocumented coming from Eastern Europe
- the proliferation of violent white supremacist groups
- the KKK
- poll taxes
- prohibitions against interracial marriage
- disparate loan practices from banks
- the fact that many citizens continue to hold discriminatory views toward other ethnic groups
- "Yellow Peril" racism against Chinese immigrants- the Chinese Exclusion Act
- the Alien Land Law restricting what property Asians buy
- the formation of the Native American Party (aka the Know Nothing party) on purely racist grounds
- the National Origins Formula in immigration law, designed to limit immigration from non-Nordic countries
- the Mexican Repatriation program, which forcefully removed UScitizens and sent them to Mexico
- racist Tea Party depictions of Obama
So yeah, except for all of that and numerous other incidents I must leave off for the sake of brevity, it is "patently false." If we reduce all of US history to a single day in November, 2008, there is absolutely no racism in this country
Bull! Obama was literally referring to the contemporary genetic racism of white Americans against blacks, and no other group. But do tell me, why did you exclude from your list of white racism the white man created liberal welfare state that traps millions of blacks in poverty, degradation, oppression and sin? That's destroyed inner city communities, families, schools, churches and work values; that's turned black ghetto's into war zones and morally dehumanizing lawless wastelands of crime, violence, drug abuse, illiteracy, one parent homes, disease and death? How could you treat something so provably destructive to millions of black Americans as not being racist?
And where is black racism on your list?
Where's the violent Black (supremicist) Panthers with their insane call for a suicidal race war? Where's Farrakhan and the white hating, anti-semitic Nation of Islam? Where's the Afro-centric racist churches like the sh*t hole Obama sat in for 20 years? Where's your mention of James Cone and his poisonous Black Liberation Theology with its black Christ and white hating God? Where's Black Lives Matter with its bullsh*t race war of cops against blacks that is worsening the nightmare of inner city life as cops are inhibited from doing their jobs in enforcing the law?
And where are race hustlers and grievance pimps like Al Sharptonand Jesse Jackson on your list? Evil men who thrive on black misery while infecting black minds with the big lie that America is racially rigged against them? Why aren't they on your list?
Consider this post an addition to your one-sided, hate driven, pathetic racist list making it more balanced, rounded, complete and fair.
The remedy for poverty isn't government dependency which FDR warned was "an opiate that corrupts moral character"-creating moral and spiritual poverty and all the social pathologies that spring from it
I was very much alive then. And as any old-timer living in our inner city ghettos will tell you community spirit, religious values, the tight-knit two parent family structure and respect for authority (parents, schools, churches, gov't, police, courts) has catastrophically eroded. I strongly recommend that you see the HBO award winning crime drama series "The Wire" for an education into the nightmare of contemporary inner city life. This outstanding series about inner city Baltimore is considered so authentic and authoritative that some major colleges and universities like Harvard use it in sociology courses. It will tear your heart out.
There it is! Another one so poorly informed that he repeats the lie about "generational welfare" and "lifelong welfare." What's next a story about the people you have seen pulling into Social Services in their brand new BMW and going home to watch The Price is Right on their 72 inch surround sound TV?
There is a LIFETIME limit of 24 months and in somestates 20 months on the length of time one can receive welfare.
It is possible to receive SNAP and Medicaid benefits for extended periods but most of those are children, the elderly and people who work full time for such generous and benevolent employers as Walmart but aren't paid enough to live on.
Ignorance can be excused if one makes the effort to educate oneself. If the problem is stupidity, well, that just can't be fixed.
There is no comparison between disability insurance and welfare, they are completely different things. Nowhere in this country is there more than a 24 month LIFETIME cap on welfare benefits and most who avail themselves of it, AS A LAST RESORT, never use that entire 24 months.
That wasn't even worthy of a "nice try," it was just a pathetic attempt to find something that justifies your desire to feel superior to others. I have never encountered anyone with a need to feel superior who was superior to anyone.
LOL!!! This study (one of many many many) proves beyond doubt that if parents become welfare dependents, the likelihood of their children eventually becoming welfare recipients (creating a destructive, degrading, work ethic eroding, welfare-entitlement mentality) also increases. This study uses DI as emblematic of the greater problem caused by the totality of such programs. Fact is (as the study shows) when parents are awarded just DI, the likelihood that one of their adult children will participate in DI rises by "5 percentage points over the next five years, and 11 percentage points over the next decade." DI combined with other anti-poverty welfare programs has a multiplying effect on these percentages.
FYI the reason for Bill Clinton's "Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996" was to the break the cycle of welfare dependency which creates the intergenerational welfare mentality and culture and its attendant social pathologies that have decimated our inner cities and lost the War on Poverty despite $19 trillion in redistributed wealth over the last 50 years. The liberal welfare state is not just a failure it's going broke and going the way of its European counterparts unsustainably supporting a great and growing mass of unemployed/unproductive recipients many of whom are poorly skilled, uneducated immigrants.
I just love ropeadoping libs. Here's a few more (racist) studies that you can howl about.
And you're the typical left-wing moral coward. I'll answer the question for you. You're vital organs are more important than your skin color. And going further the soul (spirit) that gives your body life is more important than your vital organs. And by "soul (mental and moral faculties)" is what Dr. King meant by the famous words " the content of our characters." "Character" (which transcends race, ethnicity and gender) for King (and every black conservative) is the very essence of our beings-the most important and highest part of our humanity; what distinguishes us from the animals and beasts. When you die you can't take your skin color, body and vital organs with you to heaven; but you do take your soul, mind, spirit, character.
"Character is destiny" it determines your path in life. Those blacks, whites and others who give supreme value to skin color are lost to their spiritual humanity (the essence of their beings) and are among the worst members of their race. In other words, what you consider "irrelevant" was of the utmost importance to Martin Luther King as it is for all black conservatives. There is a crisis today of character in black America. Way too many blacks are making bad moral choices, becoming bad citizens and ending up dead or in jail. Those who think this is "irrelevant" are useless, worthless, ignorant fools, and are part of the problem.
Martin Luther King, the God-loving, Christ worshiping, faith over race Baptist minister, was no traditional morality hating, anything goes, secular progressive. If he were alive today, like his daughter Bernice, he'd be against abortion, gay marriage, pornography, legalization of pot, the Black Panthers, Black Liberation Theology, the Nation of Islam, Afro-centric ministers like Rev. ("God damn America") Wright and the violent, sick,"kill the cops" BLM movement. Moreover, he wouldn't be too keen about America's first black (racially divisive demagogic) president
In other words, for the man who said:
“Bound by the chains of his own sin and finiteness, man needs a Savior…. Man cannot save himself, for man is not the measure of all things and humanityis not God.”
they'd be no place in the secularized (God is government) Democrat Party today.
Every properly informed, clear thinking American, and human beings everywhere (Moslem and non-Moslem) oppose Political Islam/Islamic Supremacism with its oppressive, totalitarian union of mosque and state and endless war against all infidels
