(Meet the New Klux Klan) – A Typical White Man Dialogues On Race
“It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved — such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”
“Dreams From My Father”
Barack Obama, presidential candidate
“Smiling faces, sometimes, pretend, to be your friend . . . ”
From, “Smiling Faces Sometimes” by The Undisputed Truth
The underlying theme of Black Liberation Theology — the theology subscribed to by Reverend J. Wright, who was Barack Obama’s minister and friend for over twenty years – is that blacks in America have a seething hatred of whites; and, in this regard, Obama is a typical black person. How deep is this black liberation theology hatred of the white race? If one scratches the surface, it seems endemic in the black American community. All economic and social strata are infected – or, if you prefer, programmed by it.
All Blacks Please Leave The Room
Last month, in Atlanta, Georgia, Superior Court Judge Marvin Arrington, a black judge, asked all white folk to leave his courtroom so he could have a chat with the blacks. There was nothing untoward going on, he later explained when forced to apologize for his actions, he just wanted to have a “black-only chat” with the various defendants (all black, one would assume) and explain to them that killing people was wrong. Maybe that would finally get it.
But if a white judge had asked that all blacks remove themselves from the courtroom so he could talk to the whites, there would not only be demands that he be immediately removed from the bench, sued, impeached, perhaps imprisoned, but for the release of any blacks ever convicted and sentenced to prison from his courtroom. The story would feature on CNN for months and the ACLU would still be shitting bricks of outrage.
Look, nobody should be mad at Judge Arrington. There is no doubt that his intent was benign (at the worse, he should have to suffer through a class on racial sensitivity 101). But one result of our quest for a color-blind judicial system is a rigid set of rules that can not be relaxed by the use of common sense or reason; hence, a meek honor role student who is found to have accidently left a plastic butter knife in his or her car receives the same penalty that a student who is a known psychopath found wandering the halls of academia with a sharpened machete in his or her hand does. Logical distinctions – which need to use subjective evaluations – have fallen by the wayside in our school system and in our judicial system. And this is all the result of race. It is not Arrington, but the system. The system we’ve evolved to end racism, actually winks and nods at black racism. Many blacks take advantage of this. And Obama is right about one thing: the typical white people is scared of black people.
Be it the court system or the school system, you can’t color outside the lines. If you do, you (if white) will be accused of racism. Because of racial sensitivity at perceived slights, subjective interpretation of rules can not be allowed; however, subjective feelings by black people of being discriminated against by white people are always allowed. Even the supposed objectivity of numbers and statistics is not safe from the charge of racism. In a multi-racial society there will always be statistics, positive or negative, that are unequal between various races and cultures.
If therefore any subjective evaluation can be shown to have come into play in the generation of inevitable uneven statistics (for example, the number of black kids in a certain high school who receive discipline vs. the number of white kids who receive discipline), the there will screams of outrage that racism is responsible for the disparity. This is the true code that Judge Arrington violated. He used a little common sense and compassion . . . but it was applied subjectively by race. And that’s a no no.
The Obligatory Apologia
I am a TWP (typical white person). Would I vote for a black person for president? Sure: Condoleezza Rice, who is intelligent, has tons of foreign policy experience and a respect for the constitution. But not Barry Obama – who thinks smiling at white folk is a neat trick and who speaks to voters with pimp seductiveness while harboring his real plan, which is to put his bitch-America on the street like a twenty dollar ho.
I’m always encountering black Americans who are intelligent, fair, and reasonable people (In fact, I’ve met lots of black people who are smarter, stronger, richer, harder working, better looking, more compassionate and more patriotic than me – and all of them are better dancers.) But I’m seriously beginning to wonder if they are rare creatures. Nonetheless, I have always felt I owed a duty to the principle of equality, as well as to them, to diligently strive to accept all Americans by the content of their character, not their color. Virtually all of the white Americans I associate with feel the same way. When I encounter overt racial hostility, ninety-percent of the time it is always black towards white. I sometimes have to strive against creeping feelings of general racial hostility: but because I care, and because I adhere to certain principles, I do strive. And that is the point to me. Not to be free of common natural human feelings, but to hold to principles that are higher than a purely emotional reaction.
My concern is this: It’s not that “the other America” (black America) is just culturally different, but that it is fueled by racist hatred of whites. And when that embedded racism enters the political channel, I should not be expected to tolerate it. I will not have my rights as a citizen abrogated by anyone. Nor should any other American (black, white, or whatever). Barack Obama is a product of this alternate America, this anti-American, anti-white black liberation theology. Black Liberation Theology (1966) was spawned by Afrocentrism – a ludicrous reinvention of history that has the Egyptians as black Africans who flew around the skies of North Africa on wings, a black Jesus, and every major player in history, except perhaps George Washington, as being of sub-Sharan origin.
Revered Wright subscribes to BLT; and his disciple, the presidential candidate formerly known as Barry Obama, sat at his feet for twenty years soaking it up. Barack’s negative feelings about whites are a matter of public record . . . scribed by his own hand. There is nothing in his early policy statements to suggest at some point he suddenly had an epiphany that white people weren’t the devil incarnate. When one reads about Afrocentrism, the natural question arises Why would anyone with a half a brain adopt such a belief system? We find an illustrative example of the seductive power of “hating whitey” in the following example.
For several decades a heinous black con-man named Dwight York, (A.K.A., Iman Isa, leader of the Ansaru Allah Community: prophet, God incarnate, and leader of the Nuwabian Nation of Moors: Dr. Malachi Z. York: Dr. Love – disco musician: Islamic Messiah: Chief Black Eagle: Isa Muhammad, Issa Al Haadi Al Mahdi, Isa Abd’ Allah Muhammad, Baba: and leader of the Nubian Islamic Hebrews, among others) stole money, kept black Americans as virtual slaves (and in many cases in conditions that actual slave didn’t have to endure) sexually abused countless women and molested hundreds of children, boys and girls, some as young as four years of age. He was also suspected of being involved in murder, arson and bank robbery. The FBI was interested in his criminal empire, as were authorities in New York and later Georgia, where his cult found purchase. In the book, “Ungodly,” which documents York’s life as a pedophile and explores his criminal odyssey in politically correct America, author Bill Osinski asks too intriguing questions: 1) how was York able to escape prosecution for so long, and 2) why did reasonably intelligent black persons fall for his ludicrous ruses, and in many cases stay on after they found out his so-called religious stances where a fabric of lies and had either direct knowledge or had been exposed to rumors of his sexual proclivity for children, continue to support him?
The answer to the first part is ostensibly easy: at both the federal and local levels, authorities feared to move against York’s various cults (at first Islamic, later as an incarnated god from space) because they were afraid of being called “racist” and crucified by the usual media gaggle (major network news, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc. al. ) for trying to oppress a black man. Political correctness demanded they adopt a ‘hands off’ attitude toward York’s misdeeds. When York moved to Georgia, it became worse. Sheriff Sills’, of Putnam county, attempts to move against York brought out local “civil rights” (Representative Tyrone Brooks of Georgia, for one) agitators and their defenders (then governor of Georgia, Roy Barnes), who quickly fell in with York’s claims that Sheriff Sills was a typical white person, i.e., a redneck sheriff who had it in for blacks, especially this peaceful brother from outer space. As in many cases where racial charges are lodged, the reality was the exact opposite: far from trying to harm or oppress black citizens of his county, Sills was trying to uphold the law and protect black children from abuse by a black man. Eventually, enough children managed to escape the cult and York was convicted of child molestation. At that point, York’s prior defenders, like Tyrone Brooks and certain Hollywood celebs (Wesley Snipes, for one) ran from brother York like he was rabid pit bull with AIDS.Now to the second and more intriguing question: how could reasonably intelligent black people fall for York’s delirious and ever changing scams? (For a brief period of their sojourn in Georgia, York proclaimed he and his followers were a long-lost Indian tribe – he was Chief Black Eagle – and made his followers wear, for reasons known only to him, cowboy hats, huge Western belt buckles and cowboy boots whenever venturing out into public. ) As usual, the cult members were compliant with his bizarre wishes. Eventually, since York knew that having colorful costumes and pageantry was an important hook for his cults, he switched to first an Egyptian, then a Masonic motif. And how could the adults in his cults overlook the obvious signs of sexual abuse of their children, and then, in many cases, still defend him once the castle of dreams had collapsed?Author Bill Osinski, puzzled by this very question, interviewed many of the former cult members and concluded thus: The juice that powered the cult, and it’s numerous variations, was always this message: hate whitey. This resonated perfectly in the black community. Osinski concluded that York cult members wanted to create a Black Utopia, i.e., something not sanctioned by whites, and to have a religion that was not derivative of anything white. As one former member phrased it (“Ungodly,” Bill Osinski, p. 71) ” . . . because here is this black man (York) who waves the nationalist flag, pushing the black thing and downing the white man. The white man is the devil (emphasis added) . . .” York knew that if the obligatory jab at whitey is used as lubricant any nonsense can be shoved down the black throat, whether it’s the belief that his followers will all be picked up by a spaceship and moved to safety before the apocalypse comes to level whitey, or that they are descendants of American Indians who must parade round in cowboy gear, or that they are physical descendants of Cleopatra, a Nubian ruler of Egypt (Cleopatra was a Macedonian Greek and not an Egyptian, must less a Nubian!)There is a thematic tie between all black religious variations/cults, from the Moorish Temple science of the early part of the twentieth century (established 1913), to Dwight York’s cults and Reverend Wrights fevered rants. It can be summed thus: The white man is evil, and the root of all your problems. In fact, some of York’s virulent rants to his followers – the white man is using birth control and AIDs to kill black people and is trying to turn the black man into a homosexual – could have been taken from the sermons of Wright or a host of other Black Liberation Theology proponents.
Just as Barack Obama explained how to “handle” white people (and continues to utilize those principles even today) so Dwight York had a consistent method of “handling” black people. No matter in what direction York’s scams mutated in, several elements were consistent: pageantry and ritual, lots of costumes (from Islamic garb to ancient Egyptian vestments to cowboy costumes to Masonic ritual clothing) and a core teaching that denigrated whites, blamed them for the ills of the world, and predicted their demise. Since a great number of blacks are engorged with hatred of whites, this combination worked time after time.
It would seem thus with the pissed-off hordes of Wright/Obama/and York type followers: though they have as much equality of opportunity as can be mandated by law, they still feel they can not compete in a “white” world. Those that can not make the grade, rather than admit personal shortcomings, need a scape goat to explain this. White America is that scape goat. And anyone whose belief system offers this plump goat up for the slaughter has a foot up with potential adherents. And antipathy toward the white race may just sweep an evil racist into the highest office in the world.
I’ve spent a considerable portion of my life studying theories — from the logical to the bizarre — of history, mythology, politics, theology, sociology, psychology, and others that pertain to man and reality. If any nexus of truth exists in cosmological musings, be it paranoid or sublime, I’ve read it, thought about it, analyzed it and measured it against known standards of truth. I’ve tasted the both the wine and the vinegar, the VSOP and the dregs. As a result, I may not know what the absolute truth is but I know a multitude of things it isn’t. And Afro-centrism (and by extension Black Liberation Theology), with its paranoid neo-racist keyhole revisionist view of history, is near the top of that list.
White Fright Precedes White Flight
White liberals do not publically disagree with black people – no matter how ludicrous their statements on history or reality. White conservatives, on the other hand, believe in the intrinsic equality of black Americans and therefore treat them as equals to be challenged to defend what they maintain. It is not racist to disagree with someone of another race or culture; it is racial or cultural bigotry, however, when one fears that opposing a person of another race or culture since they consider them to be illogical, emotionally out-of-control and potentially violently reactive.
When a presidential candidate like Barack Obama supports, for twenty years, in word and deed a bitter, divisive, anti-American racist like the Rev. Wright, and is also on public record as having antipathy toward white people, it is not only proper, but mandatory to question his ability to lead Americans of all hues and persuasions. It would be intellectually stuporous of me to think logical persuasion could work on an Obamamite. Acceptance of Obama has nothing to do with logic. It is spawned by his supporter’s core belief system. And core beliefs, such as BLT, can restrict acceptance of facts. The core belief system of the Japanese during the first few decades of the last century included the idea that the Chinese were an inferior people, and that the superior Japanese had a right to rule them. A few hundred years ago, the core belief system of the population of Salem, Massachusetts accepted that witches made farm animals sick and crops fail. Obamamites accept that electing a person because of his skin color is more important than any policy he endorses. Logic and facts are useless against core belief precepts. One of Barack’s core beliefs is that white people are untrustworthy. The “typical white person” remark, and throwing his grandmother under the media train, are only the tip of the iceberg. In his autobiography, while listing the traits of a man he’s just met and the reasons he doesn’t trust him, the last reason Barack gives — and presumably the worst of all since the man’s traits are presented in a climatic manner — was that the man was white.
Inherent Racial Bigotry
This animus against white people runs deep, and against experience in Barack’s case, as in others where children of mixed black and white parentage are concerned. Again, one boggles at the “typical” black thought process (I feel very comfortable saying that, now that Obama has made racial stereotyping an accepted thing again), or the mixed race thought process. Though the black father contributes sperm, then vacates the scene, and though the white mother raises and cares for him, and though his white grandparents support and nourish him, he disrespects them because of their whiteness. (Another example that comes to mind is the actress Halle Berry. Abandoned by her black father, raised and nurtured by her white mother, given a leg up in Hollywood by a white director, and supported by white fans, she has still – against all reason and experience – found reason to express public bitterness at white America and dissatisfaction with her life in America.)
An incredible number of Blacks in America seem to buy into stereotypes of whites: whites are either rich republicans, or redneck bigots. This is to a degree understandable since the media, who ostensibly decry the use of racial/cultural stereotypes, makes every effort to support the use of negative images of the white conservative community. Conversely, while the image of a lazy big-lipped black man sitting cross-legged eating a watermelon is recognized to be simply a negative stereotype, the image of the republican as a corpulent cigar-smoking greedy banker is more of a republican logo than the elephant. These days the typical republican is more likely to run the transmission shop down the street than to be a fat banker. American blacks have simply embraced the racism and bigotry they formerly decried as unjust and un American. Racial bigotry is alive and well in America; it just has a darker face these days. A smiling face.
Culture Of Dysfunction
In the lower class of black America, i.e., the ghetto, it seems that most unwed state-supported egg-donors are more concerned with making sure their kids are named with an incomprehensive jumble of pseudo-African syllables than with seeing that they learn that car-jacking and drive-by shootings are bad. Not only will voting for Obama – the man who thinks common civility is a “trick” he can play on white people – will be another way to get whitey, but there is every expectation that if a brother is president even more manna will fall from heaven. Free food, free housing, and free medical care, are simply not enough. Poverty? Few seem to realize that, taken as a unit, black America is one of the richest nations on the earth. The poor of the Third World do not have cell phones and color TVs.
I’m going to be blunt here, so please have the children and the liberals leave the room. The oft unstated opinion of many non-black Americans is that on the whole black Americans are a bunch of ungrateful whiners who will never be satisfied. It is not in their emotional fabric to be content. They are a contumacious lot. We have oceans of public housing teeming with welfare women (it doesn’t seem right to let ‘mothers’ roll off the tongue when speaking of them) whose purpose in life is to breed like cockroaches and soak up the largesse of the American public. This is not white America’s fault. This is not Oriental America’s fault. Nor Hispanic America’s fault. Nor anybody else’s.
In the main, black leadership in America has failed to accept responsibility for the descent of black American culture into the abyss of meaninglessness (Cocaine, basketball, and hip hop). Instead of extolling the virtues of education and a good work ethic, they instead scream for more government benefits and reparations. Reparations for slavery? The Great Society, the welfare state, food stamps, medicare, affirmative action, and the financial support of a thriving underclass of women in ghettos who mainly breed more uneducated criminals and more welfare women have been a pretty good dip in that bucket. Add to that the cost to the United States to pursue, capture, try in court and then contain the more vicious of these thriving state-supported thugs in our overburdened prison system. Vapid attempts to rationalize the behavior of this uneducated, violent, drug-addled and fashion challenged culture of irresponsible and prolific breeders are no longer working as even the most die-hard liberal must secretly admit in their hearts that the welfare/criminal culture is threatening to drag America to the bottom of the ocean. Vapid rationalizations no longer suffice to explain away such behavior, and a scant number of black Americans are willing to step forward and say this culture of dysfunction is the result of an absence of character.
The Reverend Wrights of the world confabulate grand conspiracies by a country that near tore itself apart eradicating slavery (which, btw, was empowered by both tribal Africans and Islamic slave traders) and which has spent untold billions on food, housing and education for the progeny of the slaves in America. Yet the more America gives, the more the Wright’s of the world seem to hate them for the actions of some of their ancestors.
Just How should a white person react to a black person when the issue of race comes up? With Obama, very carefully. Though outwardly Barack smiles and keeps an even tone with white people, bitter anger and violence are often seething just below the surface. And for what reason? Some egregious expression of white bigotry or an actual action of racial discrimination? Hardly. Ann Coulter, in her article “Obama’s Dimestore Mein Kamph,” recounts a story from Barack’s autobiography “Dreams From My Father” wherein the democrat presidential candidate gives a candid account of his reaction to what to most of us would be a minor incident? (Actually, incident is too strong. it doesn’t rise to an incident, save in Barack’s mind.) Obama invites a couple of white friends to an all-black party. The two white friends, obviously not racial bigots since they accept the invitation, go to the party, make chit chat, and dance with a couple of girls. Nice guys, right? On the drive home, one of the white guys innocently says that now he knows what it would feel like to be a black guy at an all-white party. In reaction to this innocuous statement, Barack writes “A part of me wanted to punch him right there.”
Is this a guy you want to have an honest dialogue about race relations with? But of course Obama is a master at hiding his true feelings to white people, as he brags in the quote at the top of the page. The question is, Which is the real Obama? The man who bristles at encounters with white people, who seethes with anger that isn’t overtly expressed, whose biography is little more that an endless series of imputations of racist incidents, (ibid, Coulter) the man who sat in Reverend Wright’s congregation for twenty years shouting “Amen, brother!” – or the smiling mask with the calm voice reassuring you that he is the balm for all racial ills? The man whose public persona – due to the necessity of needing white votes in the general election – oozes bland platitudes about “change” and “racial healing?”
After reading “Dreams From My Father, the always honest Coulter characterizes Obama as a “flabbergasting lunatic.” I think she was being generous. If Barack Obama wins the presidential election, he should also get an Oscar. And whites in America should do well do study what happened to white property owners in the African country formerly known as Rhodesia.
