The Left’s War on Blacks

Written on Thursday, December 22, 2011 by

black neighborhood

In one of my first Patriot columns, Conservatives and blacks, I described how liberalism is bad for blacks while conservatism is good for them.   Also, how for the longest time, the Republicans have been totally incompetent about reaching out to blacks.  All we need to do is win about 20% of black voters, and the Dems will be finished, and good riddance.

Since that column was written, , it has been most encouraging to see articulate black conservatives, such as AlfonZo Rachel telling the truth about the harm that liberal Democrats have done to blacks for over 150 years:

Leftist smear campaign, and liberal hypocrisies

But the liberal attack machine has long been out to destroy blacks who dare to leave the Democrat plantation.  Great patriots who happen to be black, such as Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, and now Herman Cain, have been the subject of vicious character assassinations.

Consider the accusations against Cain: not exactly the most credible accusers, but the Leftist media played this up on the front page.  But where were they about the lust child of  liberal black race-baiting icon Jesse Jackson— we had nothing less than a virtual media blackout.   I suppose leftists will accuse me of racism for using a term like ‘blackout’, so OK, they ‘whiteouted’ most mentions of the lust child of liberal Democrat lawyer John Edwards, conceived when his equally liberal wife was dying of breast cancer.  (The child is of course innocent; it just demeans the word “love” to describe tawdry affairs by liberals who can’t keep their trousers on.)  And of course, there is Bill Clinton.  Ann Coulter tears apart the hypocrisy in her inimitable style in Once you go Conservative Black, you better watch your back:

Ginger White [is] the third woman of questionable character to make an implausible allegation. Liberals say there’s a pattern, but the only pattern is of their making far-fetched accusations of a sexual nature against Cain.

White’s proof that she had a 13-year affair is that she has two of Cain’s books signed by him—one with the incriminating inscription, “Friends are forever! Everything else is a bonus,” and the other, “Miss G, you have already made a ‘big difference!’ Stay focused as you pursue your next destination.” (I know—filthy!)

If that’s proof of an affair, I’ve had thousands of them without even realizing it.

This is the sort of evidence you get with an actual sexual predator: Bill Clinton’s accusers had gifts, taped phone conversations with him and a semen-stained dress.

Gennifer Flowers produced taped telephone calls with Clinton totaling thousands of words between them, with him counseling her on how to deny their affair: “If they ever hit you with it, just say ‘no,’ and go on. There’s nothing they can do … But when they—if somebody contacts you, I need to know … All you got to do is deny it.…

The Democrat war on blacks throughout history

The Democratic left has fortunately given up a lot of its anti-black policies of its history—history that is now whitewashed (or should that be blackwashed?) by the “history” books in the government schools controlled by Democrat teachers unions: how their party supported slavery, opposed the 13th Amendment that banned it, supported racial segregation and Jim Crow laws, helped formed the KKK, turned fire hoses and dogs on peaceful black protestors, and filibustered Civil Rights legislation.  And of course, see The Film Black Liberals DON’T Want You to See.

No, the liberals have a much more subtle method.  They pretend to help blacks now, by giving them treats like welfare and affirmative action, which are really poisoned apples.

The liberal war on the black family

Walter Williams has often said that welfare could do what slavery, Jim Crow and government imposed racial discrimination could not: break up the black family.  Today, he points out in the clip below, about 70% of black families are headed by a single parent.  But from 1870, just after the slaves were freed, up to the 1940s, 75–90% of black families had two parents.  It’s typical of leftists to blame the “legacy of slavery”, racism for the family breakup.  But then, how come black families were healthier back then, when they were much closer to the time of slavery, and racism was far worse?   Dr. Williams further shows that racism is not the reason, because in Sweden, “the mother of the welfare state”, illegitimacy is 54%, and these are “white” people.

It should be obvious.  As Dr Williams says, and what his good friend and fellow economist Dr Thomas Sowell has also said:

I don’t care what you think this [legislation] is going to do. What I care about is: What are you rewarding, and what are you punishing? Because you’re going to get more of what you’re rewarding and less of what you’re punishing.

The welfare laws reward women for having babies out of wedlock, and punish them by cutting off benefits if they marry the father.  Yet liberals profess shock that illegitimacy has followed welfare, regardless of race, like flies follow a stench. See also the Patriot column, The Left vs the Poor.

Walter Williams shows why this is such a terrible problem:

There’s one segment of the black population that suffers only a 9.9 percent poverty rate, and only 13.7 percent of their under-5-year-olds are poor. There’s another segment of the black population that suffers a 39.5 percent poverty rate, and 58.1 percent of its under-5-year-olds are poor.

Among whites, one population segment suffers a 6 percent poverty rate, and only 9.9 percent of its under-5-year-olds are poor.

What do you think distinguishes the high and low poverty populations? The only statistical distinction between both the black and white populations is marriage. There is far less poverty in married-couple families, where presumably at least one of the spouses is employed. Fully 85 percent of black children living in poverty reside in a female-headed household. Another segment of the white population suffers a 26.4 percent poverty rate, and 52 percent of its under-5-year-olds are poor.

Affirmative Action

I criticized the  leftist policy of affirmative action severely in my column Equality: the good and the bad kinds, again relying heavily on Dr. Sowell’s world-wide research.  It should not even be called “reverse racism”—it is racism, plain and simple, by definition: discriminating on basis of race.

Here I will concentrate on one bad problem, because of a pending Supreme Court case about racial admissions to universities.  This is “academic mismatch”, as George Will explains in a recent column. The unintended consequences of racial preferences.

Consider a black student who is in the top 10% of all students.  He would do very well at most universities, probably even an honor student.  But if he is admitted by “affirmative action” into a prestigious school where most students are in the top 1%, he would likely fall behind.  The affirmative action  proponents love to promote these “mascots”. But once they have fulfilled their function, they are of no more use to the liberals, who care not that they fail more often, whereas they might have gained a perfectly acceptable degree at a less prestigious university.

Sowell presents actual data in “Affirmative Action” and College Graduation Rates.  He shows that there were more black students in the Californian university system after racial preferences were abolished, and less dropping out because they were overmatched. For proof:

Compare racial preferences in Colorado, for example. At the flagship University of Colorado at Boulder, test score differences between black and white students have been more than 200 points—and only 39 percent of the black students graduated, compared to 72 percent of white students. Meanwhile, at the University of Colorado at Denver, where the SAT score difference was a negligible 30 points, there was also a negligible difference in graduation rates—50 percent for blacks and 48 percent for whites.

Conclusion

Liberalism has been a poisoned chalice for the black community.  But they won’t learn that conservatism is good if they are never informed!  Conversely, all the policies they love from Democrats, such as welfare and affirmative action, actually benefit mainly white liberals, but have devastated black families and students.  There is much more I could say, but Milton Friedman said it better, e.g. how it has always been liberal big-government policies that have kept minorities down, including minimum wage laws and government schooling, while they have done best in free markets.

    • daves

      I don’t believe it for a second.

      They are trying to say welfare is the reason black people don’t get married? Don’t poor unmarried white people also get welfare? Why then isn’t welfare causing white people not to get married.

      They may have a small point about the affirmative action but it could also be that black people rarely get into these schools without affirmative action.

      Nope – this is mostly hogwash.

      Daves… You sound suspiciously like Hank the Skank..Just how closely are you two entwined? Merry Christmas.

    • Nathaniel Davidson

      Explained in the article: the welfare system rewards poverty-inducing behavior, and punishes the right behavior. The Left convinces too many blacks that they are victims that can’t survive without the government, so they have been the worst affected by welfare policies in this country. But as I said, welfare harms all races.

    • MilitaryPatriot

      They can read this article until the blue cows come home, they still wont get it. Brained ashed for generations. They can’t two and two together. Dumb down for too long. It’s hopeless. Like my Mother use to say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. This race of people are hopeless, they have a permanent fatal attraction to fail. They have been told that’s it’s whitey fault.

    • Douglas Gillard

      I’m a black conservative and I am not brainwashed by liberal democrats. You are just as bad as those liberals when you judge millions of people to be alike when we are like white people; we are individuals and have our own opinions and abilities!

  • John

    This is so true, the Democrats want the Black AND Hispanic votes and will do or say anything to obtain those votes, false promises, benefits, citizenship-you name it, they’ll do in in hopes of staying in office. Meanwhile, we the 51% who pay taxes fund congress’ deeds….
    I think the 51% who pay taxes ought to stand up and demand their rights but they can’t….they have to work and can’t take off to demonstrate/protest.

    • gwen jones

      Sorry, I did a thunmbs down by mistake!!

    • daves

      First off John – 49% of people don’t pay Federal Income taxes. They still pay the payroll taxes, sales tax, state taxes. They just don’t make enough money to pay the federal tax.

      Second, I make a pretty good living and I pay a lot of taxes. I would much rather have my tax money used to help those less fortunate than to wage war and subsidize millionaires.

    • Nathaniel Davidson

      You mean, instead of being generous voluntarily, so that 100% will go to those who need it, you give because the tax man forces you to, and only about 25 goes to the poor. Most goes to bloat the government.

    • daves

      And yet the programs help millions more than private charities could by themselves.

    • Texas Patriot

      They all need to stop paying the taxes. Then see what the big bad government can do about it.

    • Sunny

      me too, meant to push up… sorry

  • http://www.patriotactionnetwork.net Shane

    I wholeheartedly agree with this excellent column. Democrats win elections by dividing Americans into groups and then encouraging the groups to hate the other groups. Let’s face it, the Dems encourage: the poor and middle class to hate the rich, women to hate men, blacks and Hispanics to hate whites, gays to hate straights, and non-Christians to hate Christians. The Dem party is truly the party of divisiveness and hatred.

    • http://www.kjv-truth-ministries.org Preacher Cruz

      Great point! The division is just part of the insidious control they exert. I have a short piece on why we vote Republican that has driven some of my family MAD with anger! http://kjv-truth-ministries.org/?page_id=209 Hope you like it and share it with others. We REALLY need to start getting opposing viewpoints to the masses.

    • Texas Patriot

      I read your blog and tried to post but it was rejected as a duplicate post.

    • Nonne

      I agree with what you wrote, Shane, except that the Republican party has needlessly drawn lines between the straight and gay community, and chosen to treat the gays as though they are afflicted with a contagious disorder.

      Conservatives SEE how difficult it is for blacks to OPENLY vote Republican, but do Republicans see how difficult it is for gays to support the anti-gay-equality Republican ticket?

      Many gays would PREFER to vote Republican — there is no correlative reason why gays would SPECIFICALLY CHOOSE the sort of Communist White House we presently have if they felt the Republican party supported them even a little.

    • El Lobo Solo

      So you are going to put yourself et al “on the road to serfdom” because other Americans (Dem & Rep) will not embrace your alternative lifesytle. You claim to be a minority, but few minorties (as a statistical group) have ever been so affluent & able to determine social/political agenda.

    • eddy james

      Homosexuality may be a disorder,but it’s not contagious. Or is it? How many children forced to the exposure of “Two gay parents” turn our a little queer themselves?

    • eddy james

      Out not our!

    • guest

      What does gay have to do with voting dem/repub? Either one likes one platform or another.

      I used to think there were few gays, I now recognize the amount of estrogen in the water probably influences sex determination.

      Repubs are always going to go to the religious right when campaigning. Look at the issues and decide. Social problems don’t mean much if the Constitution goes down the drain.

    • 4eNow

      How does the Pledge of Allegiance go?
      “One Nation under God, Indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All.”
      So where does the encouragement of division fit?
      Also where have they put God using Political Correctness and Separation of Church and State?
      And with Eric Holder in charge, Liberty and Justice is long gone!
      Finally, the “Republic” is down the tube when Obamacare is shoved down our throats against The People’s will and not to be read until it passes (Pelosi’s idea of Obama’s “transparency”).

  • http://patriotupdate.com Raymond

    A conservative friend sent me this & i’d like to share it with you. Raymond

    I worked at Republic Steel for 10 years, until its closing in 1983. The best line I ever heard there was when this young black kid was being reprimanded for the last time before being fired.

    Predictably, the black youth said to the shop foreman, “You’re firing me because I’m black!”

    The boss said, “No, we hired you because you’re black. We’re firing you because you’re useless!

    The same goes for the President of the United States.

    • Nathaniel Davidson

      Well said!

      Here’s another anecdote: A young black man in prison whined to the black chaplain, “I’m only inside because I’m black and poor.” Chaplain: “No, you’re inside because you killed a kid who was black and poor.”

    • Bob ster

      black on black crime is horrendous today like no other time because of drugs..
      its totally out of control and our politicians arent doing enough to help this ugly situation . the decline of morality among the minorities which wasnt the case back in the early 60s has come home to roast .
      the shackles of the democrats on blacks must be removed as soon as possible and insist they be better educated which in not happening today .
      the blacks of the civil rights movement seems to be lost in the education process and must be revived .

    • A.B.

      And what will you do wit’ yo money? Invest it?

      BTW–Not every black person is descended from the US slavery system. Many African-Americans are descended from other areas of the African continent, where blacks enslaved those of their own race. Don’t believe it? Look at Rwanda, Swaziland, Chad, Sudan, Ethopia–the list goes on and on, and the practice of slavery and human-trafficking is still going on over the entire world–and not with only black people, either.

      If you are really so concerned about justice for “your people”, invest your time and money in helping those enslaved by their own fellow citizens in your ancestral homelands, instead of whining about your “bad luck” to be descended from slaves.

      Another little bit of history you probably won’t believe: white folks who were “dirt” poor often were enslaved, too, and with not many more rights than the blacks who picked cotton in the hot southern soil together with them. Grow up!

    • El Lobo Solo

      It is estimated that at least one million white Europeans were captured & enslaved by the Barbery Pirate States from 1500 to 1800.

  • msbets

    the dummierats have destroyed the blacks by keeping them down on the plantations, and the hell of it is, they STILL DON’T REALIZE IT. they jus went from one massa, to 70 massa’s, give them folks their monthly allotments, they got rewarded for every kid they had and still today that practice is in place.

  • AmazedAmerican

    When BO was running for the office he now holds, I made the decision then that he was making them his slaves. He was deliberately prying on them, at times in a most obnoxious display of pandering. He knew that the government already owned them, thru the welfare, food stamp, Medicare and other entitlement programs. BO simply made them his very own slaves, and talked to them as if they were all stupid. BO owns them now, they will kill for him just as good slaves are trained to do.
    Pity the slaves.

    I know that the one reason the blacks don’t believe bad of the dems is because the dems offer them freebies so they think how cool that is and no doubt would vote for the devil as long as there was something offered them. I would say there are a bunch that need more education to make intellegent choices.

  • RiverRat2U

    The Communist set out to destroy the family and make the product of single parenthood dependent on the Government. Their policies have been very effectively used by the Democrats in creating a caste of people who will vote Democrat in every election. Unfortunately this caste is here to stay.

  • Bobseeks

    The left is winning the battle against blacks because the black population is full of race traitors like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton – traitors who help the white massa keep his foot on the knee-gro’s neck.

    • haasstrep68

      Bobseeks, you are so right. There are many traitors amongst the black people in America. Obumer is one of them. The liberal blacks will probably never believe this, but Obumer is a traitor to his own race as well as Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, NAACP, etc. In fact, these traitors are still slaves to the white man. They do the bidding of evil white men. Like Obumer does everything George Sore-ass and the corrupt Union bosses tells him to do. Hitlery Clinton is a white woman who tells Obumer what to do, also. He’s even a slave to this despicable, corrupt white woman. It’s a shame that the blacks don’t wake up before it’s too late. This is true of ALL Americans. It already may be too late. ALL our lives are on the line with Obumer or anyone like him as president, or dictator. See website: http://www.haasstrep68.com

  • Ann C

    Through the many years I was married to a black man (now deceased), the black homes we visited, without exception, were without books and newspapers. But there were Hollywood-type magazines. Never saw a dictionary in any either. Please understand that some of these were people with college degrees, some were entrepreneurs.

    Obama, without any intention on his part (I hope), acts as a reminder to us that it was the Muslims who went to the black tribal chiefs and paid them for the capture and delivery of their own people to the Muslims who then sold them to the Dutch, et al. My point: Obama has been doing the same thing (short of physically selling them) by keeping them brainwashed about voting for him because he’ll “lift them up” and insinuating the need to vote for one’s own kind. He lifted them up and then let them crash to the ground. In D.C. alone, their unemployment exceeds 50%. He ripped away the school vouchers from blacks in the D.C. and surrounding areas. Blacks, who had got the vouchers, were able to send their children to schools that were interested in teaching ALL children. Obama ripped the vouchers away from them, very soon after he took office.

  • Ann C

    One person I wish had been included in the article: Bill Cosby. Mr.Cosby has made any number of speeches and has been in discussions about blacks and the illiterate manner of speaking, of dressing like gangbangers, dropping out of school, etc., and blaming “whitey” for their tribulations. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barney Frank lambasted Mr.Cosby, saying he was heartless. That just proves that when certain blacks gain money and power, same as Obama, they use their fellow blacks for their own purposes and “to Hades” with what happens to the blacks they have duped.

  • nmgene

    Until black people as a majority stop thinking that the demonkraut party is their fail safe. Blacks as a majority will continie to vote black or demonkraut. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, who has the the North go to war against the south (slavery). Blacks fill their churches up with standing room only and are sound Biblically in church. But once they leave the church and go back home (the hood); they forget the ten commandments and vote by peer pressure. Blacks need to realize that we the majority do not owe them squat. Get off your back side and earn a sucessful life. You white trash, that goes for you to. Mexicans get out of my country, get in line in your country. When you see these reality TV shows about prisons you see majority of inmates are minorities. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    This generational thing will continue until blacks take responsibility for their own success. Remember that million black man march in D.C. years ago, the only good thing about that march is that no one missed work. LOL. I am a white retired Marine, been retired along with my wife retiring since 2004. We did not get other jobs when we retired. I am 55 and my white wife is 53. We have six digit income in a low cost area. We have four cars, house paid off, all bills are automatic from our banking account, this year we put on an 926 square foot addition. We were able to do this by what was taught to us by our parents. No we did not inheriate anything and have not won the lottery. My nother is still living and by the time she kicks off in her mid 90’s, my older siblings will be dead most likely. Basic economics, finance 101; do not let your out put exceed your income. Please black people, today is thefirst day of the rest of your life. bore-rock HUSSEIN obummer is on his way out to the the unemployment line. The republicans will take charge by decree of the American people’s vote. 15 Trillion in debt, all programs will be drastically cut down or abolished. Go out after the new year and get a job, stick with it, get off entitlements, pay cash for things you want, no plastic, etc… All of this budget stuff is not easy but a way to start is to say no to yourself and your family members. I love all of you regardless of color or nationality but it is up to you to climb out off the hole you dug for yourself.

  • Good Time

    Blacks will vote for Obama strictly based on color. Black is their uniform, not all are like this but a pretty big percentage.Critical thinking is not their strong point whereas Whites are expected to be liberal and fair. after all the media hammers it into White people through commercials that you should never even eat your Pizza without a few minorities presnt.

  • tmt

    I have long believed that liberals have kept the black population in poverty and pain. We know a family unit with a mother and a father in the home is best for society but the democrats cannot have their voting base get too smart. Just read the bible. That stands for Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth.

  • http://Google Boomer

    As some of you know, just before Lincoln’s assination, he had a representative investigating the possibility of finding a country in South America for all the Negroes.
    He knew they would be happier and better suited with their own race. Now look where we are. Whitey is to blame for everything since they are in the minority. They will be reminded forever that they were slaves in this country. Now many of them think that whitey owes them a living.

    • helm20558

      Whitty is now the minority, look at the states. Outnumbered 10 to 1 due to breeding as least in my area.

  • AppraisHer

    Prior to the ’60s, black was a color. Families were proud of their accomplishments and both parents passed down responsibility, no different than white families. Since then, black has become a state of mind. Angry, blaming and “victimized”, with a single, unemployed mother passing on entitlement. This is all thanks to the democrats, their pastors and the media, who perpetuate the myth that it’s not their fault. It’s easier to believe this crap and live in poverty than get up at 5 AM to go to work and each new baby gets you a raise. They aren’t victims, they’re LAZY.

    • toosmarttovoteGOP

      Wow. So, Reagan’s “welfare queen” lie is alive and well. I don’t know if I should be amazed or appalled.

    • Patrioticnut

      The “welfare queen” lie, as you call it is alive because it is true. It is a problem that has been made and fed by the liberal left users like yourself. Give them welfare and food stamps, increased for every child, and if they were to get a job, cut them off completely and immediately. Not too smart are you!

    • El Lobo Solo

      This black man knows it’s the truth because I know many “welfare queens”! Liberals only believe things when it fits their ideaology.

    • guest

      While I agree with part of what you say, there are plenty of whites on welfare. The whole system stinks. The so-called hispanics don’t want separation of families yet the welfare system does more to separate families than any other fed program.

      Yes, we did live in the same neighborhoods, share the same garden plots, the same values. The mind set was changed in the 60’s and not much has changed. Whites are still blamed and blacks are still labeled Affirmative Action babies.

      Some progress. Yet without black support, we will continue this.

  • Randy

    Democrats were responsible for much of slavery, started the KKK, and found out that since they can no longer control them through past methods, they will just give them ‘just enough money and housing’ to keep them out of the main population so they can get on with their lives without being bothered and still get their votes for the handouts. Look what happens when one of them gets ‘out of line’ and doesn’t follow the Dems rules, like Cain. Too bad the mojority of them are not willing to think for themselves and see that they are being led down the wrong path.

  • heylottylotty

    Many Americans who now hate the terms Negroes, Blacks, Coloreds, and Ebony people, wish to be called Africans and wonder why they still feel segregated. Why do they STILL support the United NEGRO College Fund; the National Association for Colored People; the BLACK Entertainment Television network; the EBONY Magazine; etc. etc. Why do they as a culture insist on using pidgen English as their default language? Why do they insist on calling the Americans who are not of their race “white”? Ever actually see a person who was white (like this page)? I don’t think so. Every thing written above reeks of racism. Not toward the Americans who are black from others but by the black toward themselves. The Irish, Spanish, English, and others who became Americans by lawful entry as well as birth, endeavor to meet an American standard. The language, the lifestyle, morals and ethics are part of becoming an American. It has NOTHING to do with giving up anything. It has to do with exhibiting a desire to be an American. All others have done this for decades and centurys. It is the culture, not repression.

    Black folks are rightfully enraged at white folks. They may not understand why they are so angry at them truly but they have the right to be angry just the same. They are in these social welfare type programs that trap them there. If they wish to improve there lot in life by getting a job, they lose their benefits. They cannot get a job making enough to pay all their bills and maintaining their standard of living so why should they, would you? They are trapped by none other than white government officials that proclaim that they want to help. If conservatives ever regain power the best thing they could do for the black community would be to institute programs based on the idea of a hand up versus a hand out. Modify all the welfare programs to make working a benefit to all these folks. If you get a job you get to keep a percentage of your welfare programs in place, enough to make it worthwhile for you. Not just to break even but enough to get ahead. If we are to break this cycle of generational welfare families that’s what it will take. And yes we owe it to them, because we put them there.

      so how is that fair to those who work? Keeping up welfare benefits? A regular worker has to work many hours just to equal food stamps, housing, etc. Some workers work two or three jobs and welfare should only have to work 1/2 job?

    “The Democrat’s Racist History”

    1. They were against freeing the slaves
    2. They were against blacks voting
    3. They segregated the military
    4. They segregated society
    5. They were against civil rights
    6. Democrat Robert Byrd was a member of the KKK
    ……………..
    Yeah, Democrats are the biggest racists on the planet. Don’t forget Alinsky’s tactics book… blame the other side FIRST of what you are guilty of yourself. Can’t change history, though… there it is.

    And one last thing– MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS A REPUBLICAN WHO WAS KILLED BY JAMES EARL RAY, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT

      LBJ had to go to Evert Dirksen & other Republicans in the Senate to get the 1964 Civil Rights Bill passed.

  • cherwin

    I agree completely but how do you get the people to realize this and believe it is true?

    I think the left has done well by blacks. Affirmative Action, black preference in hiring, education, TV commercials, promotions, jobs, preferences in the laws, anti-bias protections, building them up vs. dumbing down of the Caucasian male, high % mate with Caucasian females. The black farmer alleged discrimination by the Government, whereas $50,000.00 Taxpayer’s checks were handed out like candy (they didn’t even have to farm, all they had to do was so-call ATTEMPT to farm). The left have really elevated them.

    • Nathaniel Davidson

      Sowell’s studies on affirmative action show that the beneficiaries are already the best off in the preferred groups. And the ones who suffer most are the poorest in the non-preferred groups. So in the American context, poor whites are treated as more “privileged” than rich blacks.

      But as said, the overall effect on black people is highly negative.

    Being a so called white common folk, and HAVING to work for a living while watching those who say I (whitie) caused them to have to struggle with free rent, free healthcare, free income checks, free food cards, free I don’t know what-all-else is difficult. Especially when I work running wiring in a “black” home while a group of 8-10 adults grill Ribeye steaks for all, share beer (traded steak to others for), openly discussed how they beat whitie’s system as I work in the 90+degree heat so they can have high speed internet and full cable TV. Yep, they look repressed to me. And I caused it??

    I guess I have to add my 2 cents. We have a country with 298 nationalities plus black and now the made up hispanic. Nearly all the nationalities went through devasting odds to survive and to gain economic advantages.

    The difference between the 298 and the plus two is, who made the money. Face it, blond hair and blue eyes are truly a minority even in the US. Are they divided out, given special privileges, deemed unacceptable in US society?

    OK you laugh–but there isn’t money in that, is there? SOOOOOOOOOOO what makes this any different from dividing any other nationality by color features?

    Politicians and their own people that allowed themselves to be “sold” a bill of goods. (notice the Asians aren’t complaining about NOT being a minority group)

    My gripe isn’t about the past. Either one researches times or they don’t, believe the results or not. My gripe this very slave trading is taking place again and there is no uproar from the black communities.

    The border people are being bought and sold. If one is poor, how do they afford those thousands of dollars to get here? Yet, while this is all going on, utilizing the same old 60’s people, Jackson, et al, I have not found any blacks blatantly against this.

    What did slavery look like? While I wasn’t there, I can think many, many whites were against the black slave trade, just like there are apparently only white people fighting the present day slave trade.

    Slave trade, inequalities, aside, this same thing is going on and not a peep about it. Worse, it appears a compassionate bonding between the blacks and south border. History repeats itself and it will still be the blond haired, blue eyed people at fault.

    So who actually is dividing on color to determine minority status?

  • heylottylotty

    You go there MR/MS Guest!!! It has made me sit back and scratch my head for years how those very people who riot and “march” at the drop of a hat over race injustice and dis crimi nation. Yet guess who buys the majority of those oversized and over priced bas’et ball shoes that are made by near slave labor overseas. People that are denied any rights work for pennies a day so our inequality hating persons can wear overpriced shoes. Which, by the way, are advertised and sponsored by… yep more of those same antislavery people. Go figure.
