While much has been said in opposition to BLM, and their own corruption and duplicity have resulted in a dramatic crash in public opinion for the group, seldom has any been so effective and clever in dismantling their arguments as what we see in this video of a man with a bullhorn addressing a group of protesters at a health care facility:
All Lives Matter
There were many absurd assertions made by Cullors during the almost hour-long dialogue, with the interviewer sounding more like a cheerleader than someone seeking insight. Cullors made her appeal for slavery reparations. She played the ‘woe is me routine’ about the online scrutiny BLM has received on social media. But, as we’ve come to expect, the most prominent aspect of her schtick continued to be her ‘I’m a victim’ routine.
Americans admire those who accept responsibility. Tiger Woods has been successful at levels we will almost certainly never see again. Yet Tiger has never played the ‘race card.’ Tiger Woods has been blessed to be born an American, and one with exceptional God-given talents, and he has never tried to portray himself as some sort of victim due to the color of his skin.
I had stories read to me at about the time the movie came out in 1948 (and I had seen the picture show) by my grandmothers of some of the Joel Chandler Harris tales of Brer Bear, Brer Fox, et al. And they both read as the stories were written in the dialect of the era where I could feel myself in the story: “Tar Baby ain’t sayin’ nothin’ en Brer Fox, he lay low.” And always, believed that Uncle Remus was a character filled with wisdom, kindness, and genuine affection for the white people who loved him.
As their case is heard and the potential for an end to the overtly racist affirmative action program that many schools have adopted is placed in the crosshairs, a lurking question is if any of the justices will have the guts to speak up on the issue and help the others see the light and gain the courage to strike down the policy.
Using fraud and endless fear-mongering about “public health” they are working harder than ever to put individual liberty out of favor.?? After decades of lecturing us all about slavery, they seek to do exactly that—enslave people! How foolish and naive for those who happen to agree with them about one thing today, to believe they will be saved from their own enslavement about something else tomorrow.
Some may now say that Justice X will be a Role Model™. That’s a laugh. Prominent black Americans have long been plentiful and highly visible; we have black entrepreneurs, politicians, athletes, entertainers, billionaires, scientists, doctors, lawyers, judges, professors, journalists, intellectuals (and pseudo-intellectuals), diplomats, generals, a (billed as) black vice president and even have had a (billed as) black commander in chief.
After a DC officer was injured and the deaths of two NYPD officers, the Black Lives Matter chapter of Washington, DC, has called for the public not to automatically hail cops shot on the job as “heroes” before all facets of a situation are evaluated. I can appreciate the waiting for all the facts before any determination is made. I question the timing of their demand.
It reminds me of what in Philosophical Logic is known as the “Argument of the Beard,” which asks: How many hairs does it take to make a beard. If someone answers 500, the next question becomes: But how about 499? That’s only one hair’s difference. Why can’t that be a beard? If you allow it, then why not 498, and on and on. So how many boxes need to be checked to lead a fully privileged life?
The fact is that we give the police an impossible job (repeat: impossible) and then we put their every split-second decision under a microscope searching for some mistake (or something like Officer Wilson’s actions that can be represented as a mistake by unscrupulous partisan activists) – a standard the elites would never apply to themselves. Needless to say, Officer Lewis, being a police officer, not a professor, never sought out the camera or complained about being ignored. He just did his job.
It is time to protest less and work harder for everyone to take advantage of every person’s infinite possibilities in this country. On Sunday, Tony Dungy, the former coach of the Indianapolis Colts, said that there are not enough Black head coaches in the NFL. He said that the owners had responsibility for hiring more Blacks but then qualified his statement in his following sentence. He went on to say the most qualified person needs to be hired.
Don’t get me wrong, Racism is real, and it’s a problem. But not as big a problem as governments and corporations leveraging it for influence and power to create the worst sort of discrimination of all. The despotism of an elite that systemically denies everyone, regardless of color, outside its ruling class, not just opportunities but the natural rights with which we are all born.
But the “okay” sign hasn’t always meant “white supremacy.” It used to just mean “okay” – you know, as an innocent answer to a question. That got me to thinking. If its meaning had changed over time, what other non-verbal communication signals had changed as well? I don’t want to accidently signal that I’m a cis-gendered homophobe or something. I decided to do a little research.
Reid is a Harvard graduate, though her major was film studies. She is the daughter of immigrants. Her father is from the Congo, and her mother is from Guyana. Both educated people who met in Grad school in Iowa, of all places. Rather than celebrate the opportunity this country has given her and her parents, she chooses to dwell on this country being a systematically racist hell hole.
As historical statues have come down across the country, some cities have given homage to BLM by painting streets with their logo or naming city areas after the victims of shootings like George Floyd Square in downtown Minneapolis. In my opinion, some cities did this to assuage BLM and to overcompensate for any hint of racism against the BLM group or its beliefs.
The black American is being taken advantage of again by using a manufactured resentment to cover for a huge redirection of our national path. Democratic South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn is Chairman of the black caucus. He stated that this strategy of “defund the police” is “not a winner” even in the black community. He obviously knows the overall plan but has yet to divulge it.
The concept of white guilt has a history of use during several generations. The title is a deviation from standard greed, but the game plan remains the same. We must overthrow the undeserving oppressors of great wealth and shove their nose in the mud because we are jealous!
We’ve been trying to save this country for such a long time: its founding, its history, its Judeo-Christian underpinnings, its rule of law. What can one person possibly do that could stem the tide of the incessant march of tyranny? Every time we tried to stop it somewhere else—most notably in Vietnam—liberals intervened on the side of the enemy.
It’s time for America to move on from the racial issue. Slavery is over. So is Jim Crow. So is red-lining. We’re a society that treats people equally now. It’s time to recognize all horrible crimes, not just ones that fit some far left, anti-white narrative.
Unfortunately, the corrupt hacks that compose the Biden Administration have a different view of things. In their critical race theory-based, “anti-racist” view, past racism can only be “fixed” by present racism. So, rather than lampoon and attack the racist UBI program in Oakland, the Biden Admin decided to create a race-based loan program.
There are many causes of today’s unrest, but skin color isn’t one of them. There is a causal racism in our criminal justice system, and it’s not the cops.
Motherhood may be the single-most beautiful example of God, of nature, and of humanity. It is the very essence of love. Childbirth and motherhood are simply magical, and they are a blessing that can only be experienced by women. Men can never experience what mothers do. Instead, we are left to marvel at the miracle of motherhood and to do everything we can to support and protect it.
Undoubtedly, America’s past is not perfect, but we have consistently taken steps to right our wrongs. Those steps have resulted in the election of racial minorities to the highest offices in our country becoming commonplace. No, America is not racist, but we are instead showing the rest of the world once again what true freedom and equality looks like. God bless America.
A curious habit follows the most vocal critics of America’s evils. When discussing the pervasive and harmful racism they claim is endemic in the fabric of society, it is not an exaggeration to observe that the bulk of this evidence emanates from the well-documented past, with much greater frequency than from the present.
