Saw someone post this on HKB (as Morgan calls facebook, the “Hello Kitty of Bloggin'”) … yet another white person self-flogging in an effort to garner favor from those who constantly demand self-flogging for a fleeting moment of favor. Until they throw you right back into your race box and demand another round.
It never ends.
So to sum up, even though some individual whites might not be not racist, it’s a racist system. And I’m going to go ahead and slap a race label on that “white” system. Also, white people have zero authority on the subject, so they need to shut up. Therefore … we must institute solutions approved by black activists. White people who agree with the black activists can speak as long as they defer to the black activists in the end. Sit in the back of the bus, if you will. And black people who disagree with the black activists aren’t really black, so they must shut up too.
Because, you know, we can’t judge people by the color of their skin, right?
We know it’s a racist system because neighborhoods are segregated. When white people move out of neighborhoods it’s because they can, because “the system”. When black people move out of neighborhoods it’s because they’re not really black. You know, they’re “acting white”.
Because, you know, race determines behavior, right?
What he’s saying is there’s nothing any white person can do to appease it. It’s so bad, it’s not even worth talking to “them” about it. Why is that? So I’ll always have a club with which to beat them and control them? Apparently to be truly black, you must at least resent, if not hate – white people. Because racism. Irony, identity politics is thy name.
If you ask me, the racists are the people who make absolutely everything about race. The people who cannot stop talking about anything without putting it in terms of race. Those people.
It’s “the system”. So “tear it down”. Perpetually. If it sounds familiar, it’s because the black activists, like the gay activists, and pretty much all of the identity politics activists have all been co-opted by the community organizers, who are at their core revolutionary (or, as they like to put it, “fundamentally transforming”) Marxists. They’ll use you as long as you serve their purpose, which is tearing “the system” down.
We’ve had 50 years of affirmative action. 50 years of government-mandated, preferential treatment – which intentionally ignores merit and rewards race. Not Asians, Arabs, or Hispanics, for the most part. I guess because they’re all really “white”. Or they act “white”. Like the Uncle Toms.
And what is the result? Blacks and whites still self-segregate, mainly along these cultural lines. If you’re not angry at whites, you’re not really black. If you’re responsible and polite and you try to integrate into American society like pretty much every other ethnic group which has come here has done … you’re not really black. As it turns out, the only things that make you black in the black activists’ mind is anger at white people and a self-destructive victimhood attitude. As ye sow so shall ye reap.
People get treated badly by different people for lots of different stupid reasons.
Yup, there are some real assholes out there who are racist. And they come in every skintone. All over the country. All over the world. You have your Spike Lee’s who stare daggers at mixed couples. How dare they? It counters the hate narrative, which must be preserved. Or your Marion Barry’s who see Asians coming over, working hard, being polite and responsible and doing well and saying “We got to do something about these Asians coming and opening up businesses and dirty shops. They ought to go.”
Or Mary Frances Berry, former chairwoman of the US Commission on Civil Rights “Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”
Or you have the backward asshole who sees a black man and assumes he reflects the culture that is projected and “celebrated” as “black” culture when … he’s just an American with dark brown skin.
No, to be an American basically means to believe this:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Pretty much everything else flows from that. There’s no right to be liked no matter how you behave. If we don’t have the right to judge behavior, then there is no basis for any laws at all. Behave like an American, be treated like one. A generation of that attitude will do far more than 50 years of being handed a free victim grudge token to be redeemed by you and your prodigy forever.
It never ends. So someone must be benefiting from this attitude. And it’s not regular white and black folk. It’s the race hustlers.
I know. “Thanks for white-splaining that to me.”
Know what? You’re welcomed.Loading Likes...
