Obama's Obsession with Race
Race is a very delicate subject in America. Although we are almost 150 years past the Civil War, the stain of slavery still plagues us today. Of course, no one who survived that era is alive today. However, the inability of the Republicans to stop the Democrats from ending Reconstruction, has single-handily allowed the Black population to continue to be oppressed long after the last shots were fired.
In fact, even as late as the 1960's, equality was just a dream for many African-Americans. I still remember the stark racism of separate water fountains, "coloreds only" signs at the Woolworth lunch counters and the riots that plagued America at the turn of the next decade. Growing up in Tennessee, it was all around. After I moved to Texas, in 1969, things remained brutal for the Black population. Rare was a Black person even seen in North Dallas, unless they were there to clean someone's house, or mow their lawn. In sports, Black Cowboy players could not stay at the same hotels as their White counterparts, and they were often treated as second class citizens by the media.
And yet, even though the Black population was fighting for their equal rights, which of course, should never even have been an issue, Black families stayed together, children graduated high school (and college) and unemployment - while not ideal - was not far off from the national averages.
So what makes today's Black community different? Why are their children dropping out at an alarming rate? Why are their father's nowhere to be found?
Well, the NAACP thinks the problem is racism, and clearly, so does President Obama. But who are the racists?
According to the NAACP, as well as the Democrat Party, the real racists are conservatives and, by extension, the Tea Party movement. So let's look back a few years...
Who was it that fought against Reconstruction, which kept the "Negroes" in their place? Who was it that created the Ku Klux Klan? Although President Lyndon Johnson eventually signed the Civil Rights Bill, it was ex-Klansman and Senator Robert Byrd, along with many Democrats who filibustered the bill. Byrd, of the course, the longstanding leader of the Democrat Party, who passed away last week, who once said:
"I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
It was the Democrats who fought against integration of the races. In fact, while it's a dirty little secret amongst the Democrats, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., himself, was a Republican. Of course, so was Abraham Lincoln.
So did the Democrats and Republicans simply reverse sides? Of course not. The Democrats knew that they were fighting a losing battle. It wasn't that they simply changed their opinions. No, what they did was far more sinister. What they did, in effect, was use their rhetoric to successfully enslave the African-American population.
And boy did it ever work!
Under the guise of "caring," the Dems began passing legislation which simply destroyed the fabric of the Black community. Expanding welfare - which allowed women to raise babies without the father around, redirecting education - which gave power to the State, instead of where it belongs, in the hands of the parents and basically giving away the farm to those who should have earned it and created their own American Dream.
Of course, we all know the lesson of teaching a man to fish, instead of giving him a fish to eat. Why would anyone learn how to survive and excel if the government (read: Democrats) will take of you instead. When that happens, a Nanny State ensues - which is what's happening throughout the country now, thanks to the filibuster-proof government.
What this all has led to is the degradation of the Black community. And unfortunately, many of their leaders are on the take as well. Where we had leaders like MLK - who once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character," we have Malik Shabazz, the leader of the New Black Panther Party, who says, "You want freedom you’re going to have to kill some crackers. You’re going to have to kill some of their babies."
While the African-American community has reason to be angry, they have been fed so much crap by the Democrats that they feel owed. It is no longer a case where each individual is responsible for himself. According to the gospel of Black leaders, like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan, the White man hasn't given us our due.
When you expect someone else to give you opportunity, you are enslaved. That is simply a fact of life. And that is why President Obama has been so damaging to race relations in this country. It's almost as if he believes the Black community can't exceed by themselves. While his racism is more subdued, other leaders have been very outspoken. The NAACP, once the beacon of light for a growing community, has become so irrelevant that they also have to find racism where it no longer exists.
Whether it was their call to arms over a greeting card, based on space exploration, which mentioned "Black Holes" (the NAACP either doesn't understand that a Black Hole is a scientific term for a region of space from which nothing, including light, can escape, or they do know but don't care), to condemning the Tea Party movement for making racist comments that clearly weren't made.
The more they scream "racism," the more irrelevant they become and by becoming so irrelevant, they set race relations way back.
But when I read what President Obama said about Al-Qaeda, it proved to me that this is not just a problem with the NAACP, but it has infected the entire Democrat leadership. This is what he said:
(From ABCNews.com) Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, "What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains."
I had to read that three times because I could not believe what I saw. According to Barrack Obama, the terror organization of Al-Qaeda is racist because they do not regard "African life as valuable in of it's self." Furthermore, as the article mentions, he takes task with Al-Qaeda because "it's racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations."
What this means is that President Obama does not look at the fact that Al-Qaeda is evil because they kill innocent people across the globe. No, they are evil because they aren't giving Blacks the opportunity for advancement!
I have never heard such a ridiculous garbage come out of the mouth of an American President and add this to the comment he made last week, that Israeli's do not like him because his middle name is "Hussein" - forget the fact that most Israeli's liked King Hussein from Jordan - and you can see what I mean. It's all about Race to him.
Remember, this is the man who condemned the the Cambridge, Mass. police department for arresting his "friend," and called them "stupid," when all they were doing was their job. This is the President who has ordered his Attorney General to not prosecute the two members of the New Black Panther Party who were clearly violating the voter intimidation laws.
And now, J. Christian Adams - an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of the voter intimidation case - told Megyn Kelly, on FOX News, that "There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases." He added that he believes the Justice Department has a policy now of not pursuing voting rights cases against white victims.
What this is doing is pitting Whites against Blacks in an era where we should have long ago buried our racial divisiveness. Anyone who has been to a Tea Party can attest that not only are there no racist/anti-Black tendencies, but that people of all colors and races are welcome with open arms to join.
The same can not be said for the NAACP. They even went so far as the condemn a Black man, who was beaten up by SEIU thugs for handing out flyers that disagreed with their agenda. It is very apparent that this President has not only turned a blind eye to reverse discrimination, but that he actively supports it.
Who are the real racists?
