Blackballing Brown v. Board of Education

The American lexicography died upon Rosa Parks’ refusal to leave her seat at the front of a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, December 1, 1955, for which she was arrested for her courageous demonstration of civil disobedience. The movement toward full desegregation of the American social framework had taken flight, having long been overdue. Slavery and Jim Crow are two of the major blights on America’s historical record through 2008. All racial demographics had successfully addressed old wounds through patience and due diligence to achieve greater trust, understanding, friendships and forbearance.

Perhaps no more critical event in the history of American civil rights better exemplifies the end to statutory segregation than Brown v. Board of Education (1955), declaring public school district-sanctioned racial discrimination unconstitutional, with all levels of federal, state and local authorities engaging in such sanctioned provisions to yield to this new standard. The case was a landmark of such a nature that a nation accelerated its growth into a country of great expectations through good virtue — it killed Jim Crow laws in place since the end of the Civil War. The work of Abraham Lincoln to mend the nation was never fully realized. He was assassinated by Confederate-linked co-conspirator, actor John Wilkes Booth April 14, 1861, dying just nine hours later while comatose. 

I was born on June 15, 1981. I was not alive during the turbulent Civil Rights Movement launched by Ms. Parks’ brave show of peaceful conscientious defiance, nor did I ever see the eloquence of Martin Luther King, Jr’s declaration of what he dreamed would one day be realized. Mankind will never be perfect, for all God’s children have prejudices. The matter is settled given we each have an opinion unique to the individual and therefore, discriminate due to epistemological a priori statements based on the principle of the tabula rasa. If people existed in a united stream of consciousness as frigid co-dependents, the world would be a very shallow place, void of the wonderful stimuli from which we all derive pleasure. When one demands others be open-minded, he is doing no one a greater disservice than himself. Such a disingenuous command to ignore one’s conviction in favor of cultural elitists dictating what “truths” to abide by is a matter of the corrupt intelligentsia indoctrinating the masses rather than encouraging self-reliance and independence. History is important because it measures precedence; we must learn well its myriad lessons and heed the moral values of what should be addressed today as the causal effect influencing the decisions for tomorrow.

When I read the news, I too often see atrocities committed that were circumventable. Few baby boomer politicians and pundits appreciate history they lived 30 years ago. Washington is now dominated by counterculture-era liberals born of the American Atheist movement and Women’s Liberation. They are notorious for having wasted away one joint or drop of acid at a time during their formative years, still espousing feckless 1960’s ideology where the corner of Haight and Ashbury somehow solves the rise of ISIS and global jihad. John Kerry invited a hippie dinosaur in James Taylor to sing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” at the U.S. Embassy in Paris following the Charlie Hebdo attacks by Al-Qaeda. Such spineless political impotence in reaction to terrorism was met by the Obama administration with the traditional “this is not Islam; this is not extremism” approach declaring the attacks at the kosher delicatessen not anti-semitism — except it was; those terrorists said so. CNN lesbian left-wing political analyst Sally Kohn supported Al-Qaeda’s mission by blaming Charlie Hebdo cartoons in a latent, unintentional admission Islam is terrorism, who of course would stone her for her choice to be gay.

I was told by a white art teacher who epitomized the stereotypical countercultural ethos racism is only possible among white people, as blacks cannot possibly be bigots given their struggle for equity. In observing better judgment to what I wanted to reply to her very ignorant assertion, I respectfully declined, the design of course to avoid a volatile argument that would have led to losing my job as a substitute teacher just out of college. This same teacher also declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a peaceful organization; attempting to explain this to the contrary was fruitless given the same scenario for my job being terminated would have applied. Overall, we had a wonderful rapport, with many laughs, good conversations and discussions on both the world of art and my field, history. She was a very nice lady, but not a friend I would maintain regular contact during my spare time due to our very different approaches to life.

Among my observations of the left-wing fringe are varying degrees of bizarre naivete. The thought sitting around campfires, roasting marshmallows, smoking joints and getting smashed somehow solves problems with the world seem less than memorable, literally. That might be true given strategic brain cells die, never to multiply during such counterproductive interactions. Simply sleeping off a hangover will not solve the Middle East peace process — you certainly will never end global jihad by singing “Kumbaya”. You treat wounds not by collecting for the Red Cross, but by patching the injuries as part of the actual medical team’s practices and advocacy. And to consider a former acquaintance who is a Ph.D candidate in Medieval English Literature at the University of Michigan and I experienced the beginning of our mutual parting of ways over his accusation the following political cartoon of two white men in defense of the Second Amendment was somehow “racist” was just one part of how I knew I could no longer sit by idly while law-abiding Americans are violated through the rapist mentality of the far left-wing dominated Democratic Party. The theater of the absurd recruited him as a perennial Oscar winner.

The break with the doctoral candidate who had been a dear friend for 15 years was finalized one month later when he declared all University of Virginia students to be “self-entitled douchebags” while I bitterly disagreed given I have a cousin as an alumnus at UVA, and stated many of the arrogant, entitled students may be found in the Greek life or other elitist campus organizations the rich alone have access through their wealthy parents. He of course took offense, could not see he had generalized an entire university based on the region it was located, and did not fare well when I referred to him as “the pot calling the kettle black” in which he replied I needed to find things which make me happy, that I was “so bitter”. It was at that point a very valuable lesson I learned from another old friend finally dawned on me — one can never coexist with those who neither share nor value anything in common. After more than 30 years, I had finally located my spine. It would cost me dozens of old friendships dating more than 25 years into the past, but I was relieved I no longer felt the need to harbor my resentment with no opposition just to remain friendly with those anchored by a far different foundation. My refusal to ever again appease those I had so angrily obliged with no mutual ground answered in a silent rhetoric is why I am a today conservative. I cannot better explain this than with a quote by one of my political ideological heroines, Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s Iron Lady who was never for turning.

Today, the black power movement and the White House wish to resegregate the American social fabric through public policies, not merely in their rhetoric. They of course place sole blame for their terrorism through militancy and overwhelming culpability on crime nationally on “white privilege”, on me for being a man born of white skin and European ancestry. Recent demands by the most radical of the primordial Nazi liberal fringe are all white Americans must pay reparations to the nation’s black population for the mental anguish created by our ancestors guilty even as abolitionists of this institution, nevermind the first known slaveholder in British America was a man named Anthony Johnson, a black Angolan immigrant who bought property and slaves in Virginia after being released from his indentured servitude. The American black community has never been so hopelessly enslaved as today’s post-antebellum America under Barack Obama. Should a black man or woman choose to leave the Democrat plantation mandating dependency as with Chicago’s South Side Pastor Corey Brooks, the consequences are met with well-beyond the very public condemnation by the white-dominated left-wing hippies as an “Uncle Tom”.

While school districts in Indiana and Chicago have openly engaged in segregationist policies favoring blacks, in California by targeting Asian high school students for their intelligence and as collective of “cookie cutters” by docking 55 points on their SAT exams while pro-rating black students with 235 and Hispanics, 185, the racism by liberals has proven again counterproductive. All they admit in doing so is their silent belief blacks and Hispanics are genetically-inferior and therefore, dysgenic to humanity’s progression and to be targeted for Obamacare’s eugenics policy. Why else do they push for further Affirmative Action statutes or this abhorrent policy if the America I once knew to be free is not to become a nation governed by Apartheid legal statutes?

If black city councilwoman Laurie Cumbo in New York wants to resegregate city housing, far be it from me, a white man from East Tennessee, to stop her. She was ostensibly elected fairly and should be able to wear her panties the same as real women free of racial prejudices. They may have their rundown ghettos and grimy slums, but I, a “honky piece of white trash”, will reside happily where each claim all Southern whites do — in their preconceived trailer park of their dreams as Michae… er, Michelle Obama’s “racist white crackers” they openly call to discard through genocide. I suppose I can go about living with my white privilege knowing well they will live in “No-Go” zones. I never again will have need (nor right) to dirty my flip-flops while walking on the their turf sullied by their sickening thuggish decadence since white people in the South never wear shoes. I will never vote for their party still peddling Jim Crow laws. And I will oppose vigorously our president who admires the fascist Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe, with his extensive links to jihadists.
