Black Racism: Is It Possible

February 22, 2010

‘Jeremiah Wright isn’t a racist. You need to be in power to be a racist.’ That is the cry from the left as their constant charges of racism against the right are met with notions of Jeremiah Wright. Is this true? Can you really not be racist unless you have a measure of power against those of whom you are ‘subjugating’? This issue is not complex. If you hate or have a bias against an entire race of people without cause, you are a racist. Rush Limbaugh is not a racist because he doesn’t like Obama. Al Sharpton is not a racist because he dislikes George Bush. Let’s get that out of the way first and foremost.

Now moving on to Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright is a racist because he makes remarks like ‘Hillary doesn’t know what’s it like to be a black man. Hillary ain’t never been called a *N-word*’. This man’s constant bringing race into a supposedly spiritual event on Sundays makes the Gospel of Jesus Christ into a mockery and turns church into a platform for ‘hate whitey’ speech.

But if this was an isolated remark, it would be okay. But when the man professes great admiration for James Cone, who said this:

“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love. ”

(from William R Jones, “Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology, in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology”)

That raises some eyebrows does it not? Cone is a racist straight up. You can’t tell me that just because one perceives oneself to be subjugated or oppressed that you cannot be racist. To tell me that you can be racist because you are not in power takes a leap of irrationality that I’m not willing to take.

But it doesn’t end there. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson make their livelihood off of stoking the ‘victim card’ for black people. There are many blacks that will take issue with them and have. Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Bill Cosby, Walter Williams, Alan Keyes, and Ken Blackwell come to mind as black people that have made success for themselves without hustlers like Shaprton and Jackson and haven’t played the victim card. There are more just like them. Letting people succeed based on their merit is not racist, it is American.

Which brings me to my next point. Affirmative Action is racist. Yes, you heard me. There’s very few who are willing to tackle this subject without the fear of reprisal and chants of ‘racist, racist’. Affirmative takes a large measure of the qualifications of the applicant out and places in it’s stead the color of the applicant. Take for instance the New Haven firefighters. Qualified white firemen that worked hard and risked their lives every day were denied promotions due to the fact that not enough minority candidates passed the test for promotion. Thank heavens the Supreme Court ultimately decided in favor of those brave men. Affirmative Action is a drain on our system and rewards not hard work, but color. Here’s a question, if you were in a burning building, would you want an unqualified white person trying to save you or a black person that was trained in those situations? Or if you were being held hostage, would you want an unqualified black marksmen trying to snipe the hostage taker? I want the most qualified marksmen regardless of color. Affirmative Action if used in such cases, could kill me. What say you about that Al or Jesse?

But I digress, saying that a minority can’t be racist is insane. If someone took a gun and shot you and your family shouting slurs about you being white, or brown or any other color, wouldn’t that be racist in undertone? A black person hating a white person because he or she is white is no less evil than a white person hating a black person because he or she is black. I’m pulling no punches. As a shout-out to my friends in academia, here’s looking at you Hippie Professor, the academia’s definition of racism just doesn’t fly in the real world.

Sharpton Threatens to Sue Limbaugh

October 18, 2009

In the latest twist in the Al Sharpton/Rush Limbaugh spat, Al Sharpton has threatened to sue Rush Limbaugh if he doesn’t repudiate statements he made in a recent Wall Street Journal editorial. In the opinion piece the Maha Rushie states that Sharpton played a “leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot”. Sharpton denies being part of the riot.

Sharpton and his crew are always playing the same game, trying to shut up conservatives that point out that race hustlers like Sharpton and Jessie Jackson don’t speak for black people and that people can alleviate their own problems without groups like the NAACP and the governments ‘help’. The truth is, if Sharpton speaks for all black people than Limbaugh speaks for all white people. And the truth is, neither is true. Sharpton shares the values of some black people like Limbaugh has the same values of white people.

This is not about the Crown Heights Riot or the WSJ opinion piece. This is all out war on a man’s right to speak out against the PC machine that is running Washington and most politics today. In America you can’t talk about God or country without offending someone. You can’t sing Christmas carols for fear of offending Muslims, atheists or Buddhists. You can’t place a flag on your locker without it being considered potentially distracting to others. (See Firefighter Flag Flap) Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and others are the antithesis of what the left is trying to accomplish. They are trying to force Americans into an artificial silence where real discussion is stymied because of race, politics, religion or other polarizing issue.

Americans don’t want this. We are a vocal people by nature. We enjoy debate and thrive on civil discourse. And knowing that, the founding fathers created the Constitution to protect the rights of those who are prepared for a vigorous but respectful debate. The first amendment is designed specifically to nullify the left’s attempts at silencing the majority of Americans. Because if our Constitution is followed, freedom is automatically guaranteed. But I digress.

Al Sharpton is not content to simply ruin Limbaugh’s run at becoming part owner of the Rams, he also wants to drag the man through the mud so that his credibility is affected and Americans won’t listen to him. The obvious intended effect is that another outspoken opponent of political correctness and liberalism is silenced and the right becomes a little more quiet, shy and tamed. Because if the right is silent, the only other direction is left.

America, you don’t want only left. Look at Cuba, look at Venezuela. That is where left alone leads.

Rush Limbaugh and the War on Conservatism

October 16, 2009


   Well the left is back at it. They’re crowing over their win in keeping Rush Limbaugh out of the NFL. It’s a victory for the left! Rush Limbaugh can keep his dirty, racist, sexist self out of the NFL for good.

   Am I the only one offended by the dragging of this man’s name through the dirt by reverse racists like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson? Since when could Sharpton say this about white people, “White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” and yet he has the audacity to claim another man is a racist because of one remark that he made? For those who want to know, here is EXACTLY what Rush Limbaugh said, “Sorry to say this, I don’t think he’s been that good from the get-go… I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”

   Does this sound racist to you? Do you know how many black defensive players are and were on the Eagles defense when he made those remarks? He clearly was not attacking McNabb but was attacking the media’s constant need to turn everything into a race-based qualifying issue. At that time, and still to this day there are very few prolific black quarterbacks. That is not a bad thing, it is not a good thing. It is what it is. The liberal media wants everything to become about race as evidenced by the constant lamenting over the lack of back head coaches in college football. Since when did one’s qualifications have anything to do with the color of your skin?

   For instance, if I am a black athletic director and have a mostly black school, am I obligated to give the head coaching job to a white coach because he is a minority at the school even though there is a more highly qualified black coach? NO! I am trying to win, whether the coach is black, white, purple, red, orange or yellow. That goes for everyone. You should be hired or fired based upon your performance and skills, not whether you are a minority or not. But I digress.

   It is just another left wing smear job of an American that decided to speak out against the outrageously moronic establishment of political correctness and the liberal mindset in our culture.
