In today’s world, a mob of outraged “social justice warriors” can get a person fired for the most inane of statements. The latest pound of flesh came from the President of ‘Mizzou’. However, his resignation is not enough. They are also demanding that he admit his “white privilege”. They also demand MORE black students – in spite of the fact that blacks score lowest on SAT/ACT.
As a nation, we have spent billions of dollars trying to help blacks erase the “education gap”, yet we reach this nadir of social justice mobs where everyone says that we are “racist”.
We spent billions on Head Start. It didn’t work.
Schools were integrated. That didn’t work.
Black schools with white teachers didn’t work.
Black schools with black teachers didn’t work.
Free computers and iPads didn’t work.
Huge private grants/gifts (e.g., Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates) didn’t work.
Entire school systems of blacks run by blacks and given MORE money per student than any other system didn’t work (see: Washington, DC).
So, it must be “white privilege” and racism! Tests are biased. Detroit and Baltimore are crime ridden and largely illiterate because of white privilege and the legacy of slavery! So let’s teach them to resent whites. Let’s teach that to young people! Yes, let’s teach that looting and rioting are “rebellion”. Let’s transform world class universities from centers of learning into “social justice” mad houses that preach myth and debauchery. There were students holding signs stating that they were “liberating” the campus – as if the campus were under military occupation. All would be good and right, if only more people like Sharpton were running the nation! For crying out loud, we actually have Presidential candidates pandering to the hooligans of the “Black Lives Matter” movement!
On top of that, we are being flooded with people from third world nations, and this is further changing the nature of our nation. Social atomization has encouraged short term time orientation, distrust, and corruption, which lead to social decay. And while this immigration flood is happening, jobs are being eliminated by automation. So we are importing MORE labor while simultaneously eliminating jobs. In what world does this make sense?
The ‘barbarians’ are not at the gate. They are in the town center!
How long can we hold the lid on this before it completely explodes? Another decade? 15 years?
Are we to continue to tolerate this social deterioration and intermittent rioting as preferable in attempts to appease them? Are we to continue to temporize, hold the lid on, and let our children worry about the larger ramifications later. Meanwhile, no one ever tells them the truth. Heck, telling the truth is all but banned in the mainstream. All the problems I listed above are blamed on “white privilege” as a given. So, the younger generations of blacks get angrier and more entitled, because they are taught to be angry and entitled. Young blacks feel they have the moral right to intimidate whites. They are taught that they can do no wrong and that whites can do nothing right. Heck, they are taught that “they” built this country. And they are taught this by leftist whites!
See this article by Thomas Sowell for more good reading on this topic:
Look at the following video. One has to admit that this was a brilliantly executed piece of propaganda that played right into the outrage machine’s hands. The liberal hivemind was off and running to blame all whites for being racist (except for them of course)
For those that didn’t bother to watch the video, this is a summary of the timeline
When traditionalists would argue that marriage should only be between one man and one woman and that opening marriage up to two people of the same sex would lead to polyandry, the response was that we were being ridiculous. Well, now that the SCOTUS has ruled that every state must recognize such unions, there are now groups that are now calling for – yep, you guessed it – POLYAMORY. Here is an article from a leftist publication that has already called for it.
The long term solution for the individual states will be for states to simply get out of the marriage business. Period! I disagree with Mike Huckabee’s view that we should continue to fight for traditional marriage. That horse left the barn with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and is a losing battle at this point.
I wrote about this issue over a year and a half ago on this board (click here to read it) when I predicted that the SCOTUS would indeed rule that same sex unions are legal in all 50 states. (Not bragging. That wasn’t difficult for anyone looking at the tea leaves)
Indeed, Obama has kept his promise to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now live in a nation where a man can be called a “woman” (nay, they DEMAND you do so); where a person can change their race from white to black; where entire groups of people will marry each other; and it will essentially be illegal to be white. No wonder young whites want to change their race.
First of all, greetings to everyone. I have been having some serious health challenges of late that have kept me busy – on top of daily life.
That said, I am very saddened to see the state our our union these days. Make no mistake. There are elements in DC that have promoted and fomented the type of behavior that we are witnessing in various cities nowadays. An example of this is when a looter told a CNN reporter that they were “taking back what is rightfully theirs”.
The idea that businesses and business people (such as CVS) have been “taking” from the common people is taught to these young people. This is why they feel justified to riot. Then on top of that, they are treated as heroes by social justice warriors (SJWs) on social media and even in certain parts of the mainstream media.
Here are some examples of the undocumented shopping in Baltimore and the dystopian future of the United States
The safest place in west Baltimore today was the library
Listen to (Milwaukee) Police Chief Edward Flynn response to a question from a reporter (saying he was disrespectful, read: “racist”) asking why he was on his phone checking the updates earlier in the press conference.
We need more real talk like this:
How long before Sharpton comes after him?
