The Myth of Racist America
Be honest. In your real-life everyday American experience, is racism an issue? I am confident that the answer is no. And yet the left (Democrats, Black Lives Matter, Hollywood, and mainstream media) have convinced many that America is a hotbed of racism where black boys are gunned down by cops for simply "walking while black." Words cannot express my contempt for the left's ongoing campaign to spread lies to generate racial hate and divide Americans solely for selfish political gain. The left poisoning young black minds with their lie that white America is their enemy robs blacks of realizing how blessed they are to be born in the greatest land of opportunity on the planet.
Cops shooting blacks is rare. When a cop does shoot a black, the cop is usually black or Hispanic. On the other hand, blacks are routinely killing each other in record numbers in major cities run by Democrats.
Is there racism in America? Absolutely! Racism will exist along with every other sin under the sun until Jesus takes us home. But is racism really an issue in the lives of most Americans? Absolutely not. Despite the left's efforts to make everything about race, the truth is, Americans of all races work and play together extremely well.
Black seniors are prone to experiencing "racism paranoia." I am in my late sixties. (Did I just say that out loud?) I remember suffering racism in my youth. Consequently, there have been situations in which I found myself anticipating racism only to be greeted with warmth and hospitality. I know blacks my age and older who are suffering racism paranoia – imagining racism in every situation, accusing innocent white store clerks, etc.
It is amazing how the left so easily uses racism paranoia to keep blacks believing their lie that white America hates them. For example, a sixty-year-old relative of mine says she supports Black Lives Matter because of racism targeted at her late husband 60 years ago. Her reasoning is absurd. Shouldn't having a black man in the W.H. tell her America is not the country it was 60 years ago? And yet she enthusiastically ate the left's divisive poison like a zombie hungry for brains.
The tragedy of her irrational thinking is that it keeps blacks voting for Democrats. Despite 50 years of Democrats controlling cities and promising to make things better, blacks are suffering more than ever: 40% of black males dropping out of high school, record black unemployment under Obama, and 72% of black kids raised in fatherless households. A whopping 93% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks.
Remarkably, stupid blacks are still allowing the left to con them into supporting Planned Parenthood, an organization founded to exterminate blacks. Please forgive me for calling them stupid. But their willful ignorance has, as my late mom would say, plucked my last nerve.
It is extremely disturbing that black racism against whites has come in vogue – considered cool and enlightened, a virtue of authentic blackness. The left says that if you are black and do not harbor resentment against whites, you are either an Uncle Tom idiot or suffering from Stockholm syndrome. The left says whites who do not feel guilty for their birth (white privilege) are redneck, inbred, flyover-country racists, ripe for government-mandated reconditioning and sensitivity training. Don't laugh, folks. This is the evil the left has been instilling in our kids for decades, from kindergarten through college.
Why has white America tolerated leftist public education abusing their children, teaching them to feel guilty and ashamed of who they are?
Isn't it interesting that our leftist-controlled government has bullied us into celebrating homosexual pride, claiming that homosexuals were born that way – and yet that same government tells white Americans it is racist and soon to be criminal to take pride in the way they were born, the race God chose for them?
Hollywood produces movies based on the premise that all whites are racist. A lovable, funny black lead character humorously points out white racism while endlessly joking about how stupid and lame white people are. White characters enlightened of their racist instincts vow to do better. One final joke about stupid white people. Laugh, laugh, laugh! The end. Roll credits.
In 2008, white America overwhelmingly voted to elect the first black president. They were, in essence, saying, Let's heal this racial divide once and for all. The dirty little secret is that the last thing the left wanted was to bring the races together as one American family.
I wish I could get more of my family and other blacks to realize that the American left are nothing more than cold, calculating political grifters. These political con artists cruelly exploited the good and trusting nature of Americans by using Obama's skin color to silence any opposition to him implementing their far-left radical agenda.
Consequently, Obama has behaved like America's first king. He ignores the Constitution and laws at will. Republicans are petrified to oppose him. Still, the mainstream media lied, convincing Americans that racist Republicans opposed Obama at every turn.
Realizing they had been conned into electing the left's socialist-progressive Trojan Horse, concerned Americans formed the Tea Party. The mainstream media immediately launched its campaign to brand the Tea Party racist. In the minds of far too many black Americans, the media's false branding stuck.
The left despicably continues to use the Myth of Racist America to make blacks hate and fear whites and police.
Leftists are going crazy because Trump does not submit to their decreed rules of engagement and dictates for acceptable Republican behavior – that is, to walk on eggshells, careful not to offend leftists. I implore each and every decent American to follow President-Elect Donald Trump's lead: call out evil, and stand up for what is right. There's a new sheriff in town.
Folks, I am a black man who loves his country. I know I am incredibly blessed to be born here. My simple desire is to see fellow blacks abandon the Democrats' stifling, deplorable "you're a victim" lie and pursue their dreams. Freed black liberal plantation slaves such as me pose a major threat to the left's Myth of Racist America, keeping other blacks in check.
