The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is tagging the Tea Party movement as racist. This was to be expected. NAACP, along with the entire Democrat power structure, knows that the Tea Party is a potent political force and must be stopped with insult, defamation, slander and lies.
The main reason that the Tea Parties are so threatening to liberals is that the movement is drawing people into politics who were never involved before, not just agitating the same old activist crowd as Democrats do year after year after year.
The racism charge is part and parcel of the Democrat playbook – smear, malign, repeat. Look at how the Democrats and their media friends trashed Bush every single day for eight years. CBS even promoted a fake story about his National Guard service to try and harm him. It backfired, just as the charges against the Tea Party are going to backfire big time. After all, there are so many more of us conservatives and so many fewer of them.
And you know what? We conservatives no longer care that we are being called racists. A charge like this once carried a lot of clout, but no longer. The boy has cried wolf so many times that Americans no longer listen.
And we are not afraid any longer to talk about the horrendous behavior in the colored community – crime, murder, mayhem, stabbings, shootings, drug dealing, illegitimacy, dependency, sloth, poverty and just plain failure. It is a shameful picture.
This in fact is what drives the anger of many whites at blacks, just as a father might eventually become angry at his son for acting badly instead of increasing his allowance every week.
Of course if we talk about all that crime, we will be called racist. And on top of that, we will be accused of causing all that crime.
Yeah, right… We white people are just so awful.
Yet who has controlled black America lock, stock and barrel over the last 50 years?
Well, the last time we looked it was the Democrat party.
So why don’t they bear the burden for all that bad behavior?
They should. But they are too busy calling other people names in a classic tactic to shift the spotlight from their own failures.
Now let’s look at the question from the opposite perspective for once in 50 years: Are Democrats, liberals and blacks racist against white people?
And the answer is yes, absolutely. Many in the black community and in the elite liberal media hate white people. Just look at the crime stats of blacks against whites if you want to see real racism.
In fact, the racism of the left not only is a slander against white people but, on the other side of the coin, an irrational and pathological love of colored people no matter their failures, criminality or stupidity.
If you recall, Al Sharpton rose to political prominence in 1986 falsely accusing a group of white men of raping a black teenager named Tawana Brawley. Yet the media treat Sharpton today like he is George Washington, particularly since Sharpton has been brazen enough to never acknowledge the falsity of the charges or to apologize to the white victims for his crime of bearing false witness.
Where in the last 50 years have you seen any Democrat or liberal on any level say, “Millions of black people are engaging in horrible behavior and that is why so many are poor.”
Never. Not in a million years. Of course we all know that there are occasional once-a-year statements from black leaders to cover themselves, and that Obama gave one speech talking about black fathers not taking care of their children. But those are just token comments.
So where is the Democrat party’s condemnation of massively racist behavior by blacks in the form of huge amounts of crime against white people and white property at vastly higher rates than whites commit crimes against blacks? That crime is often pure anti-white racism egged on by Jackson, Sharpton and the rest calling white people names. While at the same time they denounce white people as “racists” for everything they are alleged to be saying, thinking or even thinking about saying.
Then there are the proceedings by the city of New Haven, Connecticut which told white firefighters who passed a promotion test that they could not be promoted simply because no blacks had passed the test. This was just another case among thousands of legal, anti-white bigotry under the rubric of ‘affirmative action’.
How about the recent speech by Shirley Sherrod, USDA Rural Development Georgia state director, delivered at the NAACP’s 20th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet in which Sherrod said that racial considerations were a factor in how much help she would give to a distressed white farmer.
Sherrod said: “The first time I was faced with having to help a white farmer save his farm, he took a long time talking but he was trying to show me he was superior to me. I know what he was doing, but he had come to me for help. What he didn’t know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was, I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him.”
Is Sherrod just another hair-trigger black who sees the white supremacist bogeyman everywhere? After all, she is a known lefty agitator.
Yes. That is how most blacks think today. They have been programmed well by the left.
In a related story, a report about admissions to Harvard by Ron Unz from 10 years ago said that blacks and Hispanics were represented at Harvard about roughly proportional (100%) to their numbers in the population, but white Christians and ethic Catholics were represented by only about 37% of their presence in the American population.
Anti-white racism at Harvard? Anti-Christian bigotry? Yes. Both.
Another study from Thomas Espenshade and Alexandria Radford of Princeton found a shockingly deep bias against white conservatives, Catholics and poorer whites at America’s elite colleges and universities.
Wrote commentator Pat Buchanan about the study:
The Espenshade-Radford study “draws from … the National Study of College Experience … gathered from eight highly competitive private colleges and universities (entering freshman SAT scores: 1360),” writes Princeton Professor Russell K. Nieli, who has summarized the findings:
Elite college admissions officers may prattle about “diversity,” but what they mean is the African-American contingent on campus should be 5 percent to 7 percent, with Hispanics about as numerous.
However, “an estimated 40-50 of those categorized as black are Afro-Caribbean or African immigrants, or the children of such immigrants,” who never suffered segregation or Jim Crow.
To achieve even these percentages, however, the discrimination against white and Asian applicants, because of the color of their skin and where their ancestors came from, is astonishing.
As Nieli puts it, “Being Hispanic conferred an admissions boost over being white … equivalent to 130 SAT points (out of 1,600), while being black rather than white conferred a 310-point SAT advantage. Asians, however, suffered an admissions penalty compared to whites equivalent to 140 SAT points.”
“To have the same chance of gaining admission as a black student with a SAT score of 1100, a Hispanic student otherwise equally matched in background characteristics would have to have 1230, a white student a 1410, and an Asian student a 1550.”
Was this what the civil-rights revolution was all about – requiring kids whose parents came from Korea, Japan or Vietnam to get a perfect SAT score of 1600 to be given equal consideration with a Jamaican or Kenyan kid who got an 1150? Is this what it means to be an Ivy League progressive?
What are the historic and moral arguments for discriminating in favor of kids from Angola and Argentina over kids whose parents came from Poland and Vietnam?
There is yet another form of bigotry prevalent among our academic elite that is a throwback to the snobbery of the WASPs of yesterday. While Ivy League recruiters prefer working-class to middle-class black kids with the same test scores, the reverse is true with white kids.
White kids from poor families who score as well as white kids from wealthy families – think George W. Bush – not only get no break, they seem to be the most undesirable and unwanted of all students.
Writes Nieli, there seems an unwritten admissions rule at America‘s elite schools: “Poor Whites Need Not Apply.”
For admissions officers at our top private and public schools, diversity is “a code word” for particular prejudices.
For these schools are not interested in a diversity that would include “born-again Christians from the Bible belt, students from Appalachia and other rural and small-town areas, people who have served in the U.S. military, those who have grown up on farms or ranches, Mormons, Pentecostals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, lower- and middle-class Catholics, working class ‘white ethnics,’ social and political conservatives, wheelchair users, married students, married students with children or older students just starting into college and raising children.”
“Students in these categories,” writes Nieli, “are often very rare at the most competitive colleges, especially the Ivy League.”
“Lower-class whites prove to be all-around losers” at the elite schools. They are rarely accepted. Lower-class Hispanics and blacks are eight to 10 times more likely to get in with the same scores.
That such bigotry is pervasive in 2010 at institutions that preen about how progressive they are is disgusting. That a GOP which purports to represents Middle America, whose young are bearing the brunt of this bigotry, has remained largely silent is shameful.
Many of these elite public and private colleges and universities benefit from U.S. tax dollars through student loans and direct grants. The future flow of those tax dollars should be made contingent on Harvard and Yale ending racial practices that went out at Little Rock Central High in 1957
So who are the real racists and discriminators in America today?
Answer: It sure includes a lot of left-wing academics and their NAACP and media allies who seek to marginalize white people in every way, and then promote radicalized blacks and other minorities in order to install them in positions of political power.
But we conservatives see what is happening and are calling them out. And America is catching on as well to their blatantly illegal and unfair tactics. And that is causing the blacks to react with their usual anger. Who knows what they will do next. Maybe call us more names. And we will no longer care.
