Put Away Your Privilege

You can't end racism until EVERYONE stops being a racist.

You can’t end racism until both sides stop being racist.

Replied to this guy’s (below) WordPress post this morning:

Pizza Delivery, iPhone Recovery; or, Race & Privilege in America

My reply went like this:


There are alternative explanations [to white privilege] that make a fair amount sense to me. Put away your privilege. It is an illusion to excuse people who don’t try.

For over a quarter century blacks have committed over 50% of all homicides in the U.S. where the race of the offender was known (FBI). Over 40% of cop killers are black. Blacks are way over represented in violent crime statistics of all kinds.

Police have valid reasons to be more wary blacks. As a matter of fact a recent study in Philadelphia found that a black police officer was more likely to shoot at a black suspect than a white police officer (the black officer is probably less afraid of being accused of racism is the likely explanation).

Some American inner cities have homicide rates comparable to some of the most violent third world countries in the world. Same for violent crime. It is not white police officers that are killing the vast majority of young black men. It is other young black men doing the killing.

But TV and the media focus on just about every time a black is killed by police (and largely ignore the much larger number of white men killed by police). So since we are bombarded with every single incident people naturally come to the belief there is some kind of war on blacks by police. But it is largely an illusion created by hysteria and the media, not real world statistics.

A black kid in an inner city tries to do good in school and he is attacked by other black kids as acting “white.” He gives up and joins the gang. It wasn’t white privilege that kept him down. It was black racism.

50 years or more ago white racism was the problem. Today the largest problem is black racism. Not sure why I bothered writing this? You probably don’t have the guts to approve it.


It seems to me that the whole “white privilege” thing is an invented meme to shut up people with inconvenient facts. It is also a meme to hide the incredible amount of black racism in America today.

White people need to put away the idea that “white privilege” is the real explanation. If you are white you aren’t helping anyone by believing lies. Black LIES matter too.

If Black Lives Matter, Vote Republican

mlk

Good article on WorldNetDaily:

IF BLACK LIVES MATTER, VOTE REPUBLICAN

Exclusive: Joseph Farah exposes Democrat plot for ‘new plantation’ of African-Americans

If black lives matter – and they surely do – the logical, rational, historical and practical course of action in 2016 is to vote Republican.

That may seem puzzling and counterintuitive, since Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton seem so closely aligned with the Black Lives Matter movement that blames police for systematically targeting minorities for abuse, discrimination and even murder.

But is there more to the story?

Indeed, there is.

Read the whole story on WND.

“_____” Lives Matter 

Good post. Good reasoning. I don’t understand why this is so hard to see for so many people.

James M Craig

#BlackLivesMatter is trendy, they have their own emoji. Well I have some questions about this. They say Black lives matter but which Black lives?

Do Aborted Black babies lives matter? What about Black lives lost to suicide? I have yet to hear anyone march in protest of Planned Parenthood killing tens of thousands of potential Martin Luther Kings. Finally, I honestly don’t understand why the tragic death of a Black youth only matters if the killer was a white police officer. Seriously, Noone expects Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton to parachute out of the sky to have a news conference for any of the dozens of tragic Black deaths in Chicago last weekend. It seems almost like a perverse form of self hatred; a Black’s Life value seems to a function of killer’s color. How sick is that?

The truly puzzling part? For all the cries of police ‘racism!’ How…

Let’s Keep The Blacks Down

blackkiller

Pretty good article today by Michael Brown titled “Do White Americans Want to Keep Black Americans Down?” – quoting:

“Is there systemic, intentional racism in America today? Do large numbers of white Americans want to keep black Americans down? If not, why have other minorities overcome the odds to rise to the top of society while so many black Americans are languishing?”

This is a very good question which he eventually answers (correctly):

“I believe it is the welfare system (and its related policies) that has kept black Americans down, however well-intentioned this system may have been at the outset.”

Michael Brown’s article is worth your time to read. I might have some nits to pick with it, and will in just a second, I think it has the virtue of being largely honest and heartfelt.

In regards to the “however well-intentioned” part of the above I am a little skeptical. Not sure how many people are aware of the following alleged quote of President Lyndon Johnson in a biography by Ronald Kessler:

 “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”.

There is some interesting analysis of this quote and whether LBJ may really have said it on  Reddit AskHistorians.  My point is this. It really doesn’t matter whether LBJ really said this, or whether he was speaking from his true self or using words and vernacular to sell his politics to a southern racist politician of the time. It just doesn’t matter for one simple reason. Whether meant exactly or not, that is exactly how it has worked out in practice.

Has there been a real conspiracy to keep blacks down? When I ask that question the obvious answer is yes, by some of the more ruthless Democratic operatives – think of the mentality of someone like Rahm Emanuel famously quoted as saying:

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

America was undergoing a crisis in the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, and either by chance or by plan, the Democrats benefited enormously in the political arena while pushing policies that have served to destroy large sections of black society. But the “plantation,” as some have accurately portrayed the system, has worked marvelously well in terms of shoring up the Democratic Party.

Of course the Democratic Party was always the party of slavery, Jim Crow, lynching and segregation. But like magic they convinced most blacks that the racists in the Democratic Party somehow migrated over to the Republican Party in the 1960s. Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of them.

White Privilege

20 Examples of What It Would Look Like if White Privilege Really Existed

white_privilege

Click on link above to read original article. Some quotes:

1) We’d see frequent discussions on whether bumbling white dads or negative portrayals of southerners on TV and in movies were unfair to white people.

2) The government would be turning down talented black and Hispanic students to allow less qualified white students to get in via Affirmative Action.

3) Minorities would be LEAVING the United States, not making dangerous treks through the desert in the middle of the night to get in.

4) Falsely calling someone a “racist” would be considered to be just as repulsive as being a racist.

5) There wouldn’t be an option to press 2 for Spanish.

Silencing Whitey

Great article here on Black Lives Matter (BLM) by Mike Adams:

blm

Silencing Whitey

“As a free speech advocate, I can say without equivocation that I have never witnessed a more consistently censorious group than Black Lives Matter. Disrupting speech is not just a sideshow for them. It is the principal political tactic of the notorious uncivil wrongs group. It is their primary method of drawing attention to their cause because they lack the intellectual fortitude to persuade people to listen based on the content of their arguments.”

Great read!
