What Can Whites Do to Improve Race Relations in America?
ClashDaily.com ^ | 8/28/13 | Donald Joy

Posted on 08/28/2013 7:13:14 AM PDT by IChing

I grew up in a rural area of upstate New York that was overwhelmingly white, with almost no racial minorities around to speak of.

In school, and in books, magazines, and on TV, I was bombarded with messages and tales about the extent of horrors that whites had done to other races over the generations, especially to blacks.

For example, I was a tender lad of 13 or 14 when the wildly successful TV miniseries about slavery, Roots (based on the book of the same title by Alex Haley), dominated the airwaves and the national consciousness. Some of my schoolteachers during that year oriented much of their classroom time around discussion and study of the topic of Roots, and in my 7th-grade social studies class we spent weeks with specially developed materials designed to enlighten us about the anthropological dynamics of a certain tribe in Africa, the Egba Yoruba.

At that age, I was already a voracious reader, and became fascinated with the general subject of the black experience and race relations in our country. After watching Roots on TV, I got my hands on Alex Haley’s book, and read it cover to cover. I perused other books, such as The Me Nobody Knows: Children’s Voices from the Ghetto, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and Black Like Me.

Starting in the first grade, I had been completely indoctrinated in the socio-political sainthood of Dr. Martin Luther King, and I was very inspired by his legacy. For a class assignment, I wrote and made my own illustrated book about Dr. King, out of construction paper, staples, and magic markers.

Similarly, I was imbued with a reverential respect for Abraham Lincoln, and the legend of his having so courageously freed the slaves. On an 8th-grade field trip to Washington, D.C. I gazed up in awe at Lincoln’s memorial statue on the National Mall. Many years later, by moonlight on the reflecting pool in 2005, I proposed to my wife on the steps of that monument to Lincoln. But as a younger person, nobody, none of my teachers or parents or media figures ever told me what Lincoln had actually said regarding his prognosis for race relations in America once slavery was ended–I found out about that only in recent years.

Having very little actual experience with members of other races as a kid, I was nonetheless left with stereotyped impressions from various media, which in later years I found to be pretty accurate. While visiting my grandparents on the New England coast, I began to gain real-world experience: On one occasion, a young black man stole a ten-speed bicycle from my grandmother’s driveway. During another visit, at age 15, I was shoved to the ground by a much larger black guy when he and his friends didn’t like the idea that my friends and I were partying on their turf.

It wasn’t until just a few years ago that I found out that Alex Haley plagiarized much of Roots from a white author, and was successfully sued for it. Not only that, but that key aspects of Haley’s supposedly genealogically-researched story, and its depiction of slavery, were completely falsified.

I entered Air Force basic training at age 17, and that was when my firsthand experience with blacks really got underway. In the ranks, I found many of my black fellow servicemen to be perfectly wonderful brothers in arms. Some others, not so much. But mainly, the military ethos, discipline, and overall environment made racial differences not too important, it seemed.

It wasn’t until after I left the service and ventured into the cities of Buffalo, N.Y., Portland, Oregon, and Washington, D.C.(especially in black ghetto areas), mainly to do security and law enforcement work, that I became painfully aware, firsthand, of the shocking level of sheer depravity, chaos, racial hatred, crime, and mayhem that so many millions of black children are born into. After the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles, and after having had numerous horrible experiences with hateful blacks on the streets and even in office workplace settings, I increasingly began to be concerned about what I sensed was an overall problem of a worsening racial situation in our country.

Whites and blacks all along throughout the years have been told that the problems of blacks are the responsibility of white people, for which whites should accept blame, and for which whites should come up with solutions, or at least bear the brunt of whatever remedies are declared, by whoever, to be in order. Simultaneously, outrageous levels of crime and violence done by blacks are to be publicly downplayed by the media and authorities, lest it be implied that black adults, parents, leaders, and so are to be held accountable.

The general approach has been that the overall condition of blacks in America is the result of the actions of whites, and therefore, whites must be the ones to make things better, and right.

Now, Barack Obama is in his second term as president, and has played a key role in aggravating and badly worsening the state of race relations throughout his occupation of that office. Obama entered the national scene fresh from two decades at the feet of Jeremiah Wright, and proceeded to hustle and con his way into the White House, appointing the blatantly race-oriented Eric Holder as his Attorney General.

With Obama’s shamefully divisive exploitation (for the purposes of rousing and rallying key blocs of his voting base) of local events such as the Henry Louis Gates incident and the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman debacle on the national stage, Obama has shown us all that poor leadership has disastrous consequences beyond implications for the overall economy and international intrigues/wars. Many Americans have to go about their daily lives concerned for their physical safety, while those in the highest offices of the land fan the flames of racial animosity and violence.

So what should white people think and do about it all?

If we assume that the races are intrinsically equal, we have to ask about, and expect a resolution to, the issue of whether and when blacks will, overall, ever assimilate to the standards of civilized society–because enough of them haven’t yet, so as to cause a grave alarm. So, what is it that whites must do, anyway? How many programs and apologies and decades of forbearance shall it take? If we are to operate in good faith, it should not be taboo to speculate in such a way.

We’re all familiar with that old saying, “you can’t keep a good man down.” It means, just as is found in the teachings of the ancient religions, that oppression is really only the test of character–and that if someone or something is keeping you down beyond a certain point, then you must not be a good man.

Perhaps if whites opened public libraries,
Perhaps if whites gave their life blood to end slavery,
Perhaps if whites opened up public schools,
Perhaps if whites allowed anyone to go to public school,
Perhaps if whites created colleges of learning,
Perhaps if whites gave away scholoarships and grants,
Perhaps if whites created job opportunities,
Perhaps if whites forced all businesses to serve all races,
Perhaps if whites ......

1. Bring low wage jobs back to the US, for US citizens. No more freebies. If people can't find work, they clean playgrounds or whatever for benefits.

2. No favoritism for jobs, college admissions, loans, anything. Blacks do just fine if they have to follow the same rules as the rest of us.

3. There has to be an outcry against the trash that's passing as a culture in the US.

4. Stabilize the population of the US.

5. Stop the recreational warmongering. It's part of what's desnesitizing many people to violence.

Time for blacks to be held accountable for their situations.

The title is wrong, it should be***** what can blacks do to improve race relations IN America.They burned down their own neighborhoods and wonder why no one wants to open a business there...I suggest they clean up the squalor and hate they live off of and patrol their own neighborhoods cause when whites try to do it, they riot again....Seems like quite a few cannot learn reality of their own lack of responsiblilty....sad situation, not of my making. Even many of their pastors spew hate from the pulpit...I just don’t care anymore, except for the decent ones that are stuck there...

“Which is actually worse than it sounds. Because if 1/8 of the population is commiting 50% of the crime then they are doing it at rates greater than 20 times anyone else.”

It’s worse than that...the crime is mostly by males (which brings us to 1/16), then males under 30 (1/32?).

Improvement is a relative term. It is clear however that improvement is based on what white people do or don’t do and blacks, in particular, have no responsibility nor part of ‘improvement’. Why should I be concerned with their well being when it is abundantly obvious that blacks have no concern for the welfare of whites whatsoever?

They were both absentee parents for most of Trayvon’s life. Mom didn’t care about him, shipped him off to live with someone else every chance she got. Daddy was so busy scoring his next Bitch/Ho (sorry, just trying to be current) that he didn’t even notice Trayvon when he was around. They didn’t know their own son. What was the first thing his broken hearted mom did? Trademark her dead son’s name! CLASSY!

Feel sorry for these PATHETIC excuses for human beings? Not for one second.

Offer $10,000 cash ( or more) and airfare to any country in Africa that will accept them , with stipulation that they give up their right to ever return to the USA, along with complete secessation of ALL entitlements and enacting laws that severely punish men who father babies out of wedlock.

They can choose to stay here and clean up their act or take the cash and go back to their ‘homeland’. Those who stay would be expected to assimilate into America and its moral and civic culture.

Those who are good, moral and hardworking will appreciate the opportunities of America and be happy and grateful to stay on these terms. They would probably be glad to see the violent depraved segment of their race leave here. The lazy and immoral will jump at the chance to get a big ‘stash’ of cash and go live like kings somewhere else. It would be a bargain for us!

I grew up in a small town near Chicago. We had a small black population. All of them lived in single family homes. They had a mother and father. The father worked and the mother stayed home with the children. They never got into trouble and most of them went on to college. And there was no welfare. How did this happen? The intact family, that,s what, and education.

What can whites do?

Whites can have the decency to stop insulting black people. Black people are just as capable and competent as any other person.

I putter around my glass studio all day while Dr. Ben Carson saves the lives of children. So you think he needs me to feel sorry for him? Preposterous! He deserves my respect and admiration, just like I would respect and admire ANY OTHER person who lives such a meaningful and moral life.

Teaching black children that they require government handouts, dumbed down school programs, affirmative action, and people to make constant excuses for them... ESTABLISHES them as second class citizens. It is blatantly saying, "These people aren't good enough to be judged by the standards of lighter-skinned people." What kind of BUNK is that?! Politicians and media need to stop doing it!

Lets try assuming that blacks are as good as everyone else and treat them accordingly. They are not mentally handicapped or violent animals. And that behavior in any population should not be rewarded or even tolerated.

What Can Whites Do to Improve Race Relations in America?

We should stop taking crap from leftist racebaiters and quit cowering when white liberals compare us with the KKK.

We should never fail to remind leftist opportunists in the media and in elective office that it is the NAACP, the Democrats and their RINO accomplices who are the Uncle Toms -- advocating state slavery because freedom is just too dangerous, and spreading the patently ridiculous argument that the past existence of chattel slavery in America proves that there is no such thing as liberty.

We should never stop publicly demanding an end to the tax exempt status of the politically corrupt NAACP.

We should be constantly citing examples of the many accomplished and principled black public figures -- living and dead -- from Frederick Douglas and George Washington Carver to Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams to Allen West and Lloyd Marcus whose achievements, accomplishments and ideas are admired by conservatives of all races. And we should never miss an opportunity to compare these people to the lying, self-serving, leftist role-model scoundrels and phonies like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Charlie Rangel, Barack Obama, Chris Matthews and Oprah.

We should be citing the history of slavery and Jim Crow in America -- and placing the blame for it where it belongs -- with the Democrat Party. And we should never fail to mention that the NAACP was founded by Republicans, and that virtually every effort to improve the conditions of the black race during the darkest days of slavery and Jim Crow were led by Republicans.

We should never fail to mention that no black man was ever lynched by a Republican.

We should be hounding the media to quit covering up the epidemic of black on white violence that is too politically correct to merit mention.

We should laugh at and parody the race-baiters at every opportunity for looking at the world through their race-colored glasses.

And we should demand an end to affirmative action and Black History Month and all diversity education training and other politically correct claptrap that teaches young white children that they are bad and that they should be ashamed to be white, while teaching young black children that they are victims, that they are defined by their skin color and that they are incapable of being held to the same standards of civil behavior and achievement as everyone else.

I could say more, but I really need to get back to work now.

If the other side wanted peace, we’d have peace.

Reminds me of the liberal claims throughout the Cold War that the West, and particularly the USA, was primarily responsible. The commies were justifiably defending themselves from our aggression, and if they let down their guard, they would be destroyed.

Well, USSR fell apart, and there were zero attacks or aggression by the West. Proving, to any reasonable person, that the Cold War was entirely the responsibility of the commies.

Similarly, IMO, for decades now the vast majority of white people in USA have wanted black people to succeed and indeed are anxious to help them do so.

But no reservoir of goodwill is bottomless, and I suspect the lake level is approaching the danger point. I know I've lost a lot of my goodwill towards antagonistic black people over the last year or so.

Remove Obama from office. He is the single, most divisive factor in the current worsening of race relations

When BO was running for office, hubby and I had a conversation about this very subject and my hubby stated firmly that he believed race relations would worsen if he were elected. I believe he was quite correct in that assessment.

I, as a "white" person have absolutely no ability to change "race" relations. Anyhing I say will be dismissed. The only way for blacks to do anything about "race" relations is to look in the mirror and honestly assess what is going on in their community. I can't make their young men and women rediscover marriage and it's benefits for both adults and children, not to mention the larger community. This section of our society decided that Daddy Government was all they were going to need, and that decision destroyed their community. Only they can undo what has been done.

Then, when their young men have been raised in families with a father present, I think we will begin to see better relations (with everyone, I don't think just "white" people have trouble with young black men).

Shoot back. That way you only get the thugs, and they aren't interested in a "dialogue" anyway.

This is grossly miscast as black vs white. It isn't. It's thugs vs honest citizens, egged on by a class of professional agitators whose very last wish is peace. Who is killing young black men? It isn't rednecks with guns, it's other young black men with guns, and knives, and fists. Where thug culture reaches out to white victims, the media have to suppress it; where the victims are black they don't even have to bother. In 2011 there were 5825 white murder victims and 6329 black murder victims, despite the black population being some 13% of the national total. SOURCE.

I don't think the most racist members of the KKK could have produced a more vicious plan than the current promoters of thug culture have already succeeded in putting into place. Speak out against it, and if you're white you're a racist and if you're black you're an Uncle Tom, called that by the very same people who are demanding a "dialogue". Unbelievable.
