Skip to comments.Black America: Stop The Insanity!
Posted on 01/30/2014 7:06:25 AM PST by rktman
Remember that spiky-haired blonde fitness guru all over TV years ago? Her famous line was "Stop the insanity!" As a commonsense-thinking black conservative, I offer the same clarion call to fellow black Americans: "Stop the insanity!"
Why do you continue sleeping with the enemy, voting for liberal Democrats whose policies imply that you are inferior, stupid, and culturally immoral? When the NAACP and Democrats claim that requiring a photo ID disenfranchises blacks, such implies we are stupid. For the life of me, I do not understand why millions of blacks are not highly insulted by this absurd claim. Do blacks fly? Do blacks drive cars? Do blacks cash checks?

Sorry, Lloyd, but that pathetic ObamaPhone woman destroyed the image of Black voters everywhere. Yes, they are that stupid. You, sir, are unfortunately, the exception to the rule.
Not to worry. With the influx of 45 million newly legal workers, blacks should shoot up the economic ladder.
or the bottom will fall out from under the ladder.
Black Americans have two stories available to explain their problems, with one of them broken down into two sub-stories.
Story 1 is dominant in the media and the black community: We are kept down because of open and subtle racism by evil white people. Many blacks and liberal whites have never even considered one of the other two stories. The problem with this theory is that future black salvation is out of their own hands, as it depends on changes in society as a whole and in particular in the hearts of white people.
Story 2a is that black problems are a result of cultural issues that encourage counter-productive behavior. It boils down to black people dont work hard enough. It has the advantage of putting advancement into their own hands, and the disadvantage of blaming the victim.
Story 2b cannot be mentioned in polite society. It is that the black community has lower average intelligence and therefore a much larger percentage of people who are not capable of competing effectively in a modern society. Which of course tells us absolutely nothing about the potential of any individual black person. It has the advantage of removing responsibility for their condition from black people, but the disadvantage of eliminating any possibility for future improvement.
IMO the real problem is a mix of all three. I would greatly prefer 2a to be the primary issue, since then the problem is at least theoretically solvable, but worry that 2b may be more influential than I want it to be.
The responsibility for black problems between these three narratives is at least theoretically determinable by well-designed studies. But they wont be done, for fear that inconvenient truths might be discovered. In fact, even proposing such studies, which might be useful in solving the problems, is denounced as racist.
Unfortunately, the possibility exists that reality is racist, and ignoring reality doesnt help anyone in the long run.
Lloyd be ‘actin white’...
Why do you continue sleeping with the enemy, voting for liberal Democrats whose policies imply that you are inferior, stupid, and culturally immoral?
Because OBVIOUSLY.... Most Are... not all but most..
They have been ATTACKED by federal givernment for at least 60 years..
Bred like toy poodles ALL negative responses enhanced and encouraged.. educated like Pavlof’s dogs in public schools..
To HATE learning... honor.. virtue.. capitalism.. wealth..
The progressives have been highly successful...
Black democrats shy away from the truth as if it was a disease..
Being a democrat when black is a bewitchment..
UNless you’re a communist... then you’re honest and intellectual while being Evil.. and malicious..
The black community receives their messages through only a select few conduits, which the collectivists totally own. This creates an almost impenetrable bubble and a very small, isolated worldview.
Dey still on the Massa’s plantation, it jus’ anotha kine.
Lloyd Marcus should be required reading in all high schools, along with Williams or Sowell for economics and Star Parker for an example of self-improvement. A lot of white kids are not even aware that blacks like them exist, so it’s win-win.
