Privilege and Preference

Media and Democrats have pushed the idea that blacks suffer discrimination at the hands of whites, in particular white policemen who they say are all too happy to shoot a black man to death. The actual numbers do not bear this out, and police are in a position of being accused of racial discrimination no matter what they do. This week alone, a black woman tried screaming rape when pulled over, and was only found to be lying when the dash cam video showed nothing like that had occurred. This same black woman also was a professor at the local college. Perhaps body cameras are a good idea, just to keep things like this from happening.
But the question is, why do things like this happen? A good part of it is based on the leftist ideology of today in which the white man and America in general are blamed for the breakdown of the leftists own collectivism. The race based preferences forced on the people by the leftists who tell us they know better allow such groups as “Black Lives Matter” to be continually outraged and the excuse to lash out at those who disagree. The media and many politicians are complicit in the damage done by such groups as well. Black liberation theology is the scapegoat used by many as a pathway to victimhood, and a demand for handouts to make things better.
The Civil Rights Acts passed in the 1960’s made categories of people used in government regulations and laws illegal, but as always, the law was ignored when the progressives pushed through “Affirmative Action” and other privileges for those of color into every aspect of American Life. This was based on a collective guilt of the whites in the country, even though it was the white Republican base that pushed through the laws in the first place. Today it is the Democrats that take credit for the passage of these laws when in actuality, the bills passed with almost no Democrat votes.
This marking of specific quotas for minorities, and the leniency of attitudes of the progressives have lead to the point now that grievances turn into riots and lynch mobs burn cities and otherwise damage to social fabric, and we are subjected to such things as the “Knockout Game” or roving mobs of black youths looting, committing sexual assault, and creating virtual areas of cities where innocent people both black and white refuse to go. It is our government, the progressives in search of a socialist Utopia that allow this to happen because the perpetrators realize that nothing will happen to them. Those in government and the judiciary will say they are victims of society and can’t be expected to know any better. And then, the situation escalates more, with no repercussions for those who act like animals and cause great pain and suffering for others. There are a great many blacks in jail across the country, and civil rights activists say that isn’t right, that they are being incarcerated at a higher rate than whites. But while being a minority in population, even Columbia University professor John McWhorter, a Democrat notes “Young black men commit about 50% of the murders in the U.S.”. And who do they kill? Other black men. And although the police receive more than their share of abuse. They are reluctant to get involved, or to stop rioting from taking place because they know they will not have the administrations’ they work for to fall back on.
Black on white crime has seen such atrocities as a 13 year old boy being doused with gasoline and set of fire. Or a young mother attacked in a public park or a mob of blacks attacking Matthew Owens on his porch and claiming they were doing it for Trayvon. None of this made the news because the media and activists did the best they could to cover it up. Politicians won’t touch the subject because they either agree in the case of the leftists in politics or too cowed to say anything in the case of the spineless lawgivers who give false promises to help. The privilege that blacks take for their own is the privilege of committing crimes knowing that nothing will be done. As time has passed, these crimes will become more damaging, as in Baltimore, when the police were told to stand down, and the rioters were given space to commit any crimes they wanted by an incompetent mayor.
The question is, what can be done when this attitude of “Black Skin Privilege” is part of the federal psyche. When we have past Attorney General Eric Holder refusing to indict the Black Panthers of intimidating voters in Philadelphia after the case was already put together before he took the position. Or what can be done when Obama weighs in on cases that he has no information on, and explains that what happened didn’t really happen, or finds other ways of explain away the crimes committed by minorities. Obama took upon himself to call the police of Boston “stupid” when the tried to ascertain what a professor was doing breaking into his own house. This was a fact that the police did not have at the onset of the call, but Obama felt that he must make them look bad. Or what of the Ferguson riots, instigated and made worse by such groups as “Black Lives Matter, and REVCOM a socialist group, and the Palestinians who were there giving tips to how more effectively riot. Once again, it is deeply ingrained in this administration that blacks can not perform hate crimes, and can not be racist. And with the willing accomplices in the media, more and more whites will be targeted with the law enforcement in this country looking the other way.
Academia is also at fault, when a cop killer such as Mumia Abu Jamal can shoot an officer in the back and then stand over him and shoot him four more times over the arrest of his brother. In jail for life, there have been numerous times when this cowardly felon has been a commencement speaker at colleges across the country. Is it any wonder why the black youths of today feel they will suffer no consequences of attacking a white family, or burning a white business. Law enforcement under the ever watchful eyes of the federal government fear arresting too many blacks even if they commit crimes. What was the outcome in the Baltimore riots. The police were blamed and a federal investigation started.
And so where has all this lead us? It leads us to people such as James Cone, a professor at the United Theological Seminary in New York stating “ What we need is the destruction of whiteness which is the source of misery in the World” We have Jeremiah Wright and other church leaders calling for the destruction of “Amerikkka” And a divine love as expressed in “Black Power”.
And Just last week, Louis Farrakhan calling for an army of 10,000 men to “rise up and kill those who kill is and let them feel the pain of death we are feeling”. Does anyone believe that this will not lead to more of what we are seeing now, the intentional harm done to whites by mobs on angry blacks for past sins that are not a part of todays society.
I suppose to Farrakhan “Black Lives Matter” because he has spoken this way about whites, Jews, Chinese, Koreans, Indians and anyone else not black. But it always comes down to the same thing. Farrakhan can’t be racist, he’s black. Our administration will say nothing about this, and will allow things to continue as they are in order to create the chaos that this administration needs to further its socialist goals. If this blows up into a full scale racial war as some activists want, will Obama declare martial law and stay in office, And do Farrakhan and those like him seriously believe if they start indiscriminately killing white or others on a large scale that there will not be a backlash.
All of America needs to come to our senses before that happens. If not, it will be bloody, and it will tear this country apart. I rest easy in the belief that peace and harmony is what the majority of Americans want and will stand together to put an end to this insanity. This country was based on individual responsibility, and it is the people of this country that will bring us back to that. It will be a daunting task. We must stand up to the government, to academia and to a media who refuses to see the light. If it can’t be stopped, the blood will be on the hands of all those in power who ignore the coming confrontation, the ones who create opportunity of dividing the country, and the socialists working for chaos in our streets.
