Teachable Moments On Black Racism

The biggest obstacle in race relations in America is black racism. Black professors lie about black achievements and claim they were stolen by inferior white civilizations. Black preachers preach race hate. And black leaders/opinion makers scream that racism "keeps them down" and warn of a return to slavery. This leads to open black hostility to every other racial/ethnic group and retards black economic progress. A conscientious black leader would work to defuse this garbage and get blacks out of the race hate and victimology business. Sadly, Obama is not such a leader, as demonstrated by his failure to address a single one of the recent teachable moments on black racism.

In the past few months we've been awash in teachable moments on black racism. It’s been exposed that Obama/Eric Holder believe the nation's civil rights laws should protect blacks but not whites. We’ve had a dozen black legislators caught committing crimes, and their excuse was to claim racism at being exposed. A couple weeks ago, the race industry starting whining that anyone who doubts Obama’s “certificate of live occupancy” is motivated by racism. . . as apparently are also all Republican challengers and the entire Tea Party. Whoopie Goldberg boldly announced that she intended to milk her race by playing the race card, while her idiot co-worker and producer scanned the crowds at the British royal wedding hoping to find racism in the penumbras of the guest list.

Black NFL players spent the last month claiming that the same criticism they themselves made of white quarterbacks in the draft becomes “motivated by racism” when made against black quarterbacks like charlatan Cam Newton. Black NFL players also whined that the NFL treats these pampered millionaires “like slaves.” Black boxer Bernard Hopkins just attacked black quarterback Donovan McNabb for not being black enough:

“Forget this [points at skin]. . . he’s got a suntan. That’s all. He goes on HBO and talks about being black. The only reason he spoke was because he felt betrayed. ‘I thought I was one of y’all’s guys. I thought I was the good one. Y’all told me this.’ Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He’s the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. ‘You’re our boy.’”
In other words, McNabb is an Uncle Tom and a “house nigger” because he wasn’t ghetto-enough, and that's the only kind of black whites will allow to succeed. This same criticism is routinely made of black candidates who don't speak with the "negro dialect" that thrills Harry Reid so much.

So did Obama say, “it’s time we stop denigrating blacks who strive to become a success”? Nope. Did he say, "wait a minute, the law should be colorblind"? Did he tell Whoopie and friends, "racism is a serious charge, don't make it unless it's real"? Did he say, "hey, just because they criticize me doesn't make them racists"? Did he say, "come on, you people broke the law, there's no racism here"? Nope, not a peep.

That’s at least nine teachable moments Obama could have used to defuse black racism by speaking out against it, but he shamefully remained silent. Think about that. One cop in Boston correctly arrests a belligerent black professor and Obama rushes to a camera, but Obama remains mysteriously silent as high profile blacks make false racism allegations, slavery analogies, tell blacks they better get in line or they aren't black, and advocate an apartheid-like legal system of separate and unequal treatment under the law?

Now we have two new teachable moments from this poetry reading shindig the Missus is having at the White House. The problem involves two of the guests invited by Michelle “never felt proud of America before” Obama.

The first guest is Lonnie Rashid Lynn, known by his rapper name “Common.” Common is famous for writing lyrics about killing cops, for using racist and misogynist language, for rapping about other Black Panther murderers, and for singing about burning George Bush. For good measure, he named his daughter after a Black Panther who killed a cop in 1981. And it probably won’t surprise you that Common, like Obama, is a disciple of the hateful, racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and like Obama, Common apparently wasn’t paying attention during the hateful parts: “What I picked up from the pews. . . was messages of love.” Then you, sir, are an idiot with serious comprehension problems.

The White House is trying to defend including Common on the guest list on the ludicrous basis that everyone is blowing his lyrics out of proportion and because “he’s spoken very forcefully out against violent and misogynist lyrics.” Yeah, sure.

Common also has one other view that is relevant here. Like George Wallace before him, Common is opposed to miscegenation, i.e. the mixing of races. Indeed, he’s a very vocal opponent of mixed race relationships and believes that black men should not be dating white women. That's called racism when the KKK says it.

And Common won't be lonely at the party because Obama's guest list also includes Jill Scott, a black writer, who also hates miscegenation and “winces” whenever she sees a black man married to a white woman. She says she feels betrayed. Check out her article from Essence:
When our people were enslaved, "Massa" placed his Caucasian woman on a pedestal. She was spoiled, revered and angelic, while the Black slave woman was overworked, beaten, raped and farmed out like cattle to be mated. . . As slavery died for the greater good of America, and the movement for equality sputtered to life, the White woman was on the cover of every American magazine. . . She was unequivocally the standard of beauty for this country, firmly unattainable to anyone not of her race. We daughters of the dust were seen as ugly, nappy mammies, good for day work and unwanted children, while our men were thought to be thieving, sex-hungry animals with limited brain capacity. . . These harsh truths lead to what we really feel when we see a seemingly together brother with a Caucasian woman and their children. That feeling is betrayed.
That’s well beyond the definition of racism and well into the land of “race hate” and paranoia.

If just praising Strom Thurmond (who disavowed such views long before he became a respected Senator) was enough to get blacks outraged at the "racism" of Trent Lott, then there is no possible justification for allowing these two racists onto a White House guest list. They haven't even disavowed their racist views. . . they revel in them. Obama's failure to condemn these two is a pathetic failure of leadership by a man who has no desire to lead blacks from the wilderness in which their hate has taken them. His decision to invite these racists to his table is a disgrace.

I think that as you and I have sometimes discussed, Barrack Obama is a closet racist himself. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but once again, the evidence seems to just continue to pile up.

Sure there is the outside possibility that he is just a saavy politician who knows how to exploit something for political advantage, but some of the looks he gives, some of the statements he has made tend to truly make me think this is so.

One of the things that makes me particularly unhappy is the notion is that black "reverse" racism is somehow more understandable, hence more acceptable due to circumstance. Bull feathers, says I!!
One other moment he missed is to tell his advocates who say the birthers are racially motivated to back off. I rarely watch O'Reilly anymore, but the other night happened to catch a small segment where he called out the editor of the New York Post for a provacative front page calling Trump a racist. I give him credit for calling the guy out on it.

got distracted while making last post. was trying to say the whole birther opportunity is one that particularly gauls me, even though in it's patent absurdity, that actually may purely be a political tool.

Here is my article from Thursday evening. I'm not sure if the comments are coming back or not or even if they registered -- several people say they commented but those didn't show up.

Jed, Here were your comments (which were in my in-box):

Jed, I agree. I think the idea that somehow black racism is acceptable or that blacks can't be racist is ridiculous. I also think it's the root cause of what is keeping the black community from moving beyond the issue of race because they're being told that they are the victims and they need never look at their own behavior.

When we decide that all of our actions are without fault, no matter what we do, then we set ourselves up to become very bad people. And when we think we are the victims and nothing we do can change that, then we tend not to bother helping ourselves. And if you don't help yourself, you will always be a failure. . . the government cannot make you a success.

As for Obama, I agree with that too. The Dems love to present him as beyond the issue of race, but his actions have repeatedly shown that he's deeply enmeshed with ideas of black liberation theology and its various racist offshoots.

Jocelyn said...

I didn't get a chance to read this yesterday, but this was a nice summary of all the articles about Common I've been seeing.

I just don't understand why there must be racism. A person should not be held accountable based on their skin, it should be based on your merit and your ability to accomplish your job. I see it all the time in Los Angeles and it really frustrates me because I don't think there's anything we can do to change their minds.

And the fact that the White House allows someone who has the views Common does is disrespectful to America.

Jocelyn said...

"I also think it's the root cause of what is keeping the black community from moving beyond the issue of race because they're being told that they are the victims and they need never look at their own behavior."

Andrew: This is so true. I ride public transportation everyday to work and all I hear about is what kind of free stuff you get from the government and how it is not their fault for their poor life choices. And they think it's okay to be taken care of instead of being self sufficient. They don't understand the concept of taxes or anything outside of their "all about me" bubble.

AndrewPrice said...

Thanks Jocelyn, And I agree entirely.

We should be treating every single person as an individual. And that means looking at a person based on their own words and deeds, their own actions, their characters, and their judgment. There's no legitimate reason to consider race in that.

Unfortunately, too many people are deeply enthralled with the issue of race and racial spoils and that leads them to keep stoking the anger and the hatred and to keep ancient antagonisms alive as modern prejudices. And that causes a lot of hate and a lot of damage in society at large.

AndrewPrice said...

Jocelyn, I've seen similar things in DC. When a group is told that they lack the power to control their own lives because someone else has set them up for failure, they invariably choose to go the route of making themselves into victims and feeling that they are entitled to being taken care of.

That keeps them from trying to improve themselves and developing the skills they need to make their lives better. It also leads them to act completely irresponsibly because they get this idea in their heads that they aren't to blame no matter what happens. And as the negative consequences of those choices pile up, they just keep getting angrier and angrier at everyone but themselves. Then they see other people who aren't suffering similar consequences and they get angrier yet.

Like I said, I've seen this in DC and Baltimore, and I've seen it among poor whites in Appalachia as well. This becomes a lifestyle that they pass on to their kids and everyone else around them, as they all decide the government will take care of them.

The only way to fix this is if everyone stops accepting and excusing that kind of behavior. And that starts within each community. That means a guy like Obama needs to step up and say "enough." But he won't do that because it suits him politically to keep his core voters angry and dependent. It's really despicable.

And speaking of choices, how about Michelle Obama’s poetry reading guest list at the White House? Don’t you all just love the great poet and socially-conscious hip-hop star Common? Not only did this piece of inhuman filth write a poem about killing a cop, then record it, but it was actually a paean of praise for an actual event. A New Jersey state trooper was killed in a shootout with Black Panther felon Assata Shakur (aka Joanne Deborah Byron, and JoAnne Deborah Chesimard [her “married,” “slave”name}, along with about seven other aliases). She is the step-aunt of fellow [dead] thug Tupac Shakur. The left wing has attempted to frame this White House idiocy in terms of free speech, artistic expression, social consciousness-raising, and a host of other phony coverups. The simple fact is that Michelle (and Barack, by insertion) loves and supports this vile, racist garbage.

When Fox News reported the incident, I had a twinge of memory combined with a frisson of anger that I couldn’t quite place. Until they mentioned the heroine of the scumbag’s poem/song. Then it all hit me. Assata Shakur was convicted of murder of the trooper, sent to prison, escaped, and fled to Cuba where she still resides. And I heard her name mentioned the first time in decades by, drum roll, Columbia hip-hop Professor Marc Lamont Hill. Over the past few years, the racist professor posing as a legitimate university instructor has written about, praised, and promoted the cause of Shakur. He refers to her in e-mails and tweets as his “sister, soul-mate, teacher, mentor, and life guide.” That got him fired by Fox News as a paid commentator. BUT, he still appears in the guise of a legitimate guest on Fox’s “Red Eye” and “The O’Reilly Factor,” among others.

Inviting Common to the White House is Obama’s intentional “error.” Inviting Marc Lamont Hill, Professor of Dubious Credentials, is Fox’s ongoing error. Hill is treated as the token liberal with special knowledge of the black community. He is in fact, an extreme racist, a hater of America, and a supporter of cop-killers (he likes Mumia abu Jamal a lot too). Dressing him up in Brooks Brothers suits and giving him unearned professorial titles can’t cover up the stink of this race-baiting lowlife.

For details on Shakur and Hill, go to: Enough!.

I would say this issue excites you Lawhawk?

Common not only raps about one Black Panther cop killer, he named his daughter after another. How sick it that? "Gee, I think I'll name my kids Dauhmer and Bundy because I think those guys speak for me." What an ass.

And Common is not along on the guest list. They've also invited Jill Scott, who also sees the modern black world as still fighting slavery. Could you imagine the outrage if Bush had invited two white guys from Arkansas who were opposed to inter-racial dating? I don't think the left would have stopped screaming until Bush's name was removed from the history books. Yet somehow, it's accept in this instance?

That needs to change if they ever want to fix race relations in this country. You can't have peace when one side is taught that it's ok to openly hate the rest.

I noticed a couple of pundits claiming that Obama isn't really in sympathy with the "kill the [white] cops" point of view because he's half white. Yeah, the son of a tramp and her black, communist, absent, serial monogamist husband (though he often forgot to get divorced before remarrying). We've already seen how he treated his only relative who babied him, pampered him and supported him. His grandmother, whom he referred to as a "typical white person" who was afraid of black people. He identifies black, and only black. He is a radical, race-baiting, black liberation theology-loving, America-hating son of a bitch. Cop-killers and gangsta rap "artists" are not even a difficult leap for this president. Was that civil enough?

Have I mentioned that I hate Obama?

AndrewPrice said...

Lawhawk, I believe you've mentioned it in passing.

Nice rant, by the way. It's hard to disagree with that.

Yeah, he showed a lot of love for his grandmother.

Ed said...

Obama is a disgrace, so is his wife. This is just further proof. Also, the MSM is a disgrace again on this because they are just ignoring this as they do with every other instance of black racism.

I was raised to look beyond race and ethnicity, but unfortunately, too many people aren't. I'll tell you what though, people who get obsessed about race are building a prison for themselves that will trap them in unhappiness and failure their whole lives. I don't intend to join them.

AndrewPrice said...

Ed, Well said and very true. People who spend their lives obsessing about other people are dooming themselves to miserable lives marked with failure. That's one of the key problems at the core of socialism, that it's concerned with what others have, not with what we have for ourselves. That's destructive and stupid. Racism works on the same principle, but is many times worse.
