What’s Race Got To Do With It?

July 23, 2010

The race-healer in chief’s mojo is coming to a screeching, crashing halt. He was the post-racial prez, the guy that was neither black or white, but something like a Santa Clause figure whose appearance changed based upon whom viewed him. He was equally at home with his black buddies and his white buddies. He could easily separate himself from his race and would ‘change’ the country with ‘hope’.

No more. His rep is forever tarnished by what he has done in the past couple weeks alone. Black Panther-gate, suing Arizona over ‘racial discrimination’ in HB1070 (which doesn’t exist mind you) and who can forget that “the Cambridge police acted stupidly.” It seems that the entire Congress now defers to minorities rather than the rule of law.The New Black Panthers were unarguably harassing white voters in an attempt to drive them away from the polls. A whistleblower (J. Christian Adams) at the Justice Department has confirmed that the department had a slam-dunk case against the NBPP yet it was dropped because under AG Holder the department is opposed to trying cases of discrimination against white victims. (See http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/07/us/07rights.html?_r=1)

Now the organization fighting obscurity and utter disrepute, the NAACP is now claiming that the Tea Party is a racist organization and that it is the spiritual descendant of the White Citizens Council. My question? Why won’t the NAACP come out and condemn the NBPP or more specifically Minister King Samir Shabazz of ‘I hate white people’ fame. In case you haven’t heard it, let me quote it to you exactly: “I hate white people. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him… If you want freedom, you gonna have to kill some crackers. You gonna have to kill some of they babies.”

Sounds real warm and huggable doesn’t he? That is the same man that was standing outside a Philadelphia polling station on election day 2008 with a nightstick. Regardless of color, there are racists among us. Blacks can hate whites as easily as whites can hate blacks. Asians can hate Hispanics and Europeans can hate Australians. The point is, we are never going to get past racism. NEVER! The human condition is unable to be removed from us as it is ingrained with sin. Some hearts will never change, and you can’t legislate morality. Government cannot change a heart, only God can through the blood of Jesus Christ. King Samir Shabazz needs Christ. And not his faux Christ of black liberation theology. For God doesn’t look on appearances, but on the heart.

I love people regardless of their color. But some people won’t do that. Some people hate others based on their color. And ones like Shabazz (both Samir and Zulu) are racist as well. Nothing can be done to heal old wounds when the former victims are turning into the oppressors. But here’s the thing. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and outright racists like King Samir Shabazz and Malik Zulu Shabazz were never subject to the same treatment that MLK or others were treated. They were never enslaved like in the 1800s. I still contend that if we go far enough back, every group on earth has been enslaved or mistreated by someone of the opposite race.

So in closing, if Obama were to truly want to be post-racial, he would look at the facts rather than the skin-tone and drop his radical agenda. Decrying Arizona’s largely white police and legislature (who are trying to enforce border policy) and sticking up for illegal immigrants who happen to be largely Hispanic (and crossing ILLEGALLY) is an example of radicalism. Justice is supposed to be blind, blind to color, blind to economic status, blind to gender. The eyes of justice are only supposed to behold facts, perhaps the President should take the same approach.
