Racial Hoaxes and the NAACP (Fake but Accurate NAACP Defense)
Townhall.com ^ | 12/12/07 | Professor Walter Williams

Posted on 12/12/2007 12:00:34 PM PST by VA Voter

Last May, firefighters at a Baltimore, Md., fire station came under scrutiny for displaying a deer with an afro wig, gold tooth, gold chain and a cigarette hanging from its mouth.

Marvin "Doc" Cheatham, president of the Baltimore chapter of the NAACP, went ballistic, charging, "There is now and has been a culture of racism and white supremacy within the Baltimore City Fire Department."

As it turns out, it was a black fireman who dressed up the critter. Cheatham refused to apologize for his accusations of fire department racism, maintaining "there is now and has been a culture of racism and white supremacy within the Baltimore City Fire Department."

No matter what the facts are, it is always Whitey's Fault.

Once you understand that, we can have racial harmony.

The majority of these “racist” incidents turn out to be hoaxes perpetrated by blacks themselves. There should be a stiff penalty for reporting a false “hate crime”.

I believe it turned out to be yet another hoax, but may be wrong.

…NAACP has outlived that usefulness and has in some instances become an impediment to black progress.

The NAACP long ago became a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC.

The needs of Blacks is secondary at best.

While not quite "on topic" I did just go to the Walter Williams website and found this quote;

“Wherever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.” Benjamin Disraeli, Speech in the House of Commons [June 15, 1874]

The MSM has not said anything about it. They just left us hanging.

In response to Maynard's confession, NAACP President Cheatham still blamed white racism, saying, "It really saddens us to hear that evidently things have reached a stage that even an African-American does an injustice to himself and his own people as a result of a negative culture in that department."

LOL! So I bet any day now we'll hear William Jefferson of bribery fame declare that whitey made him take the money and forced him to put it in his freezer.

There was a case here in Minneapolis where a black family had a cross burned in their yard. The news station frothed about it for about a full week, until it was discovered a family member (An Uncle) had burned the cross.

After that not a single word was said about it. Not even a follow up on the story.

Sickening IMO.

Reminds me of the NC NAACP/Mangum Hoax. The facts were wrong but the metanarrative was still true. /sarc/

No matter what the facts are, it is always Whitey's Fault.

I used to get to some black guys, who blamed everything on Whitey: "You guys ouught to fall on your knees and thank God for Whitey." About then the veins would pop out on their heads and I'd get the "Whut you talkin' 'bout?".

I'd tell 'em that "If there were no white people around, who would you blame for the everyday crap that you encounter in life? As long as Whitey is around, the losers will use that escape hatch." They wouldn't know what to say, and in retrospect, it's a wonder I didn't get my butt kicked. But God is was sweet to see the "discombobulation".

“Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, president of the Baltimore chapter of the NAACP, went ballistic, charging, “There is now and has been a culture of racism and white supremacy within the Baltimore City Fire Department.””

And, of course, this isn’t racist talk at it’s very finest.

A thousand millenia from now there will still be Marvin "Doc" Cheathams.

The best description of that kind of racism that I've heard is that it is, "quite justified, whatever its excess, since it's merely the expression of a righteous revenge and it's up to the whites to be patient and understanding."

I would merely change "the whites" to "us all."

Of course it's Whitey's fault. If Whitey hadn't conned his momma into naming him for the first black president, William Jefferson C., ....

Is that the famous Cheetham from the law firm Dewey Cheatham and Howe?

I LOVE to see liberals hoisted on the petard of Political Correctness, racial identity politics, gender determinint feminism and what I have coined as “Tawana Brawley Syndrome”.

TBS exists when one takes a historical reality such as the marginalization of innocent blacks within a once overtly racist criminal justice system or the past subjugation of women or any number of other offenses and attempts to apply that to a contemporary situation wherein the objective facts don’t apply; ala OJ Simpson, Rodney King, Anita Hill etc. In the Brawley case, Al Sharpton was continually referencing the “400 years” of unrequited oppression for black women and their inability to obtain redress within a racist criminal justice system. The fact is that all that had absolutely nothing to do with the fraudulent Tawana Brawley case.

This case shows that objective truth and fact mean nothing to the racial grievance obsessed, and that even a lying hoax can serve “revolutionary truth.”

A better question would be what happened to the video tape the campus police have of the incident.

One of my favorite Minnesota MSM liberal biased stories was back when (kind of ) Republican Governor Arnie Carlson appointed his sister in-law(?) to a judgeship.

No one said she wasn't well qualified, but the Democrats and their media lapdogs went on an aggressive attack for 3 ~ 4 days whining incessantly about nepotism and about legislation needed to stop this outrage.

Arnie, knowing that the Dems had controlled MN politics for at least 25 years, said OK, but make sure the legislation is retroactive. This of course would affect a whole generation of Dem nepotistic appointments.

Not another word was spoken by the Dems and the biased media, the story died so fast it broke the speed of light in reverse and it was as if the story never existed in the first place.
