How We Make Racists In America
Bob Parks: Black & Right ^ | 12/26/09 | Bob Parks

Posted on 12/26/2009 9:13:37 AM PST by bocopar

On Christmas Day, a Major with the Salvation Army taking his three children into the organization's community center in North Little Rock, was held up and shot to death (in what appears to be a botched robbery attempt). The Major and his children are white and the two perpetrators were black. Given what we know about how long it takes for racial wounds to heal, what's to say that these three young children (four, six, and eight) who witnessed the murder of their father become personally hostile to every black person they see, and who could really blame them?

Except of course the only folks I know who end up with racist attitudes are those who are taught to hate ( regardless of the color of their skin). Those who are taught the redeeming value of the Gospels tend to learn other ways

Yes - we learn that it’s the color of the heart (black?) not the skin.

If the perps were green skinned makes no difference as this crime is most evil. Death penalty quickly administered.
Bet the perps listen to violent laced rap lyrics too.

More liberals are true racists than conservatives. This is borne out by virtue that conservatives by and large are deeply religious and moral people who view other races as having just as much value as the rest of us. Furthermore, true conservatives follow the basic GOLDEN RULE which states treat others as you yourself would like to be treated. Liberals on the other hand are a lot more selfish people interested in only themselves. They are by and large elitist people who disdain regular working class people of all races, colors and creeds. Liberals only talk a good game to minorities at election time to get their votes and at no other time do liberals care anything about them. That is why it is so utterly amazing that minorities fall for the liberal line of bullshit year after year and vote for them like the zombie sheep they truly are. I actually feel pity, sympathy and sorrow for these minorities who have become zombie sheep believing everything that liberals tell them.

Sadly, primitivism is the order of the day in the black community. An amoral excusing of bad manners and low-brow behavior is becoming the hallmark of the greater black community which Jesse Jackasson arose from with at first conservative mantra.

I guess the Salvation Army kettles are now closed for the season, but I know there are a lot of us who don’t pass one without putting a little something in it. Nearly every city and town, though, has a shelter or a SA store or some other kind of facility. I bet anyone can walk into one of those, talk to the officer in charge and donate a couple of bucks in this man’s name. I have complete confidence in the Salvation Army as far as proper use of the funds. This man has very likely heard what we all long for - “Well done, My good and faithful servant”. For our own sake, we should honor his memory and life’s work among men.

It is a form of slavery if you think about it. Yes, many liberals are racist and they keep denying it, which makes them more dangerous. The most dangerous people are the ones who deny what they really are, like they say they are not racist, but they are.

This tension that is currently happening is working to our benefit, politically speaking.

I know a lot of people who remained with the Democratic Party even as it became liberal because it was the party of their forefathers. It took Obama being nominated and elected to snap them out of it.

My brother believes in legal abortion, he believes in a lot of the actual Dem platform crap but he voted for McCain last year. First Republican vote of his life. I still haven’t convinced him to be pro-life but Obama and some local issues here have about driven him into the Republican camp.

Now might be a good time to talk about affirmative action. Seeing as we have a black president is it really needed? Doesn’t Obama prove that blacks don’t need it to succeed?

I was once robbed by several black youth. When I retold the story to another black man he seriously asked why I was not prejudiced against black people. I didn’t know how to respond other than there are all kinds of crappy people in the world.

I think that many black folks think that it is crime that makes people prejudiced. That is really though provoking if you think about it.

But the backlash is coming. One mistake from McCain kept us from winning what should have been ours last year.

You want to know the real reason Parker Griffith switched. Because Obama has so hurt race relations that the traditionally Democratic district that he represents is ready to put in a Republican as a protest.

The government can always seem like a philanthropist with other people’s money. That makes the government an out and out thief. And that is something this country went to war over more than 200 years ago. And the people, not the government, won that war. It’s time to do it all over again. We must take our country back by the commie fascists in power.

Socialism and communism are just another form of slavery with the government as the overseer with the whip. We must run all of them out of power and then out of the country. If they like the socialism and communism so much, let them immigrate to a country that already has those systems in place. I would love to see those assholes try living under Hugo Chavez. I wonder how they would like it if they did not like something he did and couldn’t say anything about it for fear of doing some heavy duty jail time or perhaps face a firing squad like in Iran.

So True, most people don’t have a clue.

The public school system has been encouraging racism for almost 40 years, I remember when forced desegregation started, I was in the 7th grade, the powers that be thought it would be nice to bring three busloads of the most incorrigible young black kids from the ghetto they could find to a mostly white suburban middle class school. When I got to High School it was 30 buses. This is all by design to encourage racial animosity, and continue the racism debate, which of course includes lots of new Hate Crimes. absolutely despicable.

the sad part is we had black families in the neighborhood and at our school, and we all got along just fine, never any Racial Problems til this was started. Things rapidly digressed from there.

Now we all know that we are racists because They say so.

Crime is one way. Persecution, Denial of opportunity, Affirmative Action, Quotas, and just about anything that judges people by their religion, race or birth are a few examples I can think of.

I just creates a society that ignores the best of what everybody has to offer. It stagnates innovation and inventions and that is damn shameful

I agree. Wary but not prejudiced.
When I was young, if I walked to school the shortest way, a gang of black youths would always steal my milk money. So I walked the longer way to school. It did not make me prejudiced.

But today, if I see a gang of black youths coming my way on the street with pants hanging half way off, and with dorags (sp?), I am wary. If a single black person approaches wearing a suit and tie (not a bowtie), I think little of it. It is just common sense.

I agree. When I was a kid we lived in a neighborhood that was nice but then a nun got raped by a black man and then a bunch of activist types started moving into the neighborhood. My father got sick of it and we moved and we’re still able to get a decent amount of money for that house.

Now when you drive through that neighborhood its sad to see all the overgrown yards and blight. I’m not a big fan of people leaving their cities but I know why they did it in Birmingham. They did it so they could keep local control of schools and avoid busing. Can’t really argue with them either.

Yep. Sure is. Just like if a lion killed your dad, in front of you...it would be a huge leap to assume that the kids might have a fear of lions. In fact, most people who watch their parents die by lions become lion tamers. Why wouldn’t they? Trauma? ha.

Or if you watched your dad get run over by a car, you’d probably become a champion race car driver.

Yep, a giant leap indeed.

The most glaring example of racism in our neighborhood is a church. I know a number of liberals that attend this church. This church has a white service and a black service....my white liberal neighbor who attends this church was talking about how nice “they”were, how well dressed “they” were and “they” seem so smart........I was dumbfounded

The liberal government has imposed so many protections, "rights", and priviledges on the minorities, they see themselves as invincible, and whites as the enemy.

Today, on PBS, "Professor Gates" - obama's buddy - is hosting a 2 hour special called, "Afro-American Lives", after that another program about slavery. The minorities are fed an never-ending stream of propaganda designed to keep them angry, even though there are no slaves alive today, they are pumped that it is their "legacy" to invoke revenge, and restitution.

The problem is, after the millions and millions of dollars that have been spent, and the reaching out of most of the white community to mend race relations, there is a segment of the black community who see the profits in not letting this national guilt trip die.

These two black perps will probably be charged with "murder", "robbery" and a couple of other crimes, but you can bet - even with all of the new legislation - they will NOT be charged with a "Hate Crime". If the racial situation were reversed, not only would "Hate Crimes" be imposed, but there would be riots in the streets and a 3 month news cycle on it, 24 & 7.

"Equal Rights" overshot its intended mark, and is now "racism" all over again. I have heard the more militant faction of the black community say that black hatred and crimes toward whites is NOT "racism", but somehow justified because of the happenings of 200 years ago that no one currently living can change.

I often wonder why they waited 200 years to rebel...most of our forefathers had the "live free or die" attitude. Back during teh 50's and 60's, the courageous blacks were the ones who stepped up in the wake of fire hoses and attack dogs to demand "equal" rights, but those out there today are a bunch "johnny-come-latelys" with baggy pants and a bad attitude.

They "civil rights" concerns of the modern activists center more on money than anything else. As "equal rights" has spun over to "equal but separate rights", the Jessie Jacksons of the world have convinced blacks that they are now entitled to our personal lives and fortunes, in lieu of working for it themselves.

That old movie line, "Give a mouse a cookie, he'll want a glass of milk." applies in modern day, spoiled-brat America. You can't shove freebies to any group for their entire lives, and then one day expect them to give it up and go to work...it ain't happening.

Charity and entitlements build self-esteem and self-reliance like busing achieves racial balance in schools...both of those concepts are dismal failures, and I'm wonder where the algores of the world are on the millions of school buses traveling millions of miles per day and belching out exhaust fumes hasn't been addressed at all in this heart-wrenching climate change HOAX.

It's as plain as day the democrats are only interested in our tax dollars and controlling our every move, and it has a vested interest in stirring as much racial unrest as possible. The democrats - in that respect - treat blacks worse than any slave owner ever did by not allowing them to rise to there own capabilities and enslaving them to an extent that keeps them in the democrats' control at all time. If someone gives you free "everything", you are indebted and enslaved by them, and you will do whatever you have to do to keep the money flowing your way...it's a fact of life, it's human nature.

Yes, one of America's - or I should say the democrats' favorite product, is racists...the more of them they can produce in America, the more in control they are of all of us. They know the trick of holding two cats face-to-face...chances are, they're going to fight - where do you think obama's phrase "In Yo' Face" came from...it's provacation to illicit governmental protection and monetary revenge when temper flare and people react to blatent ridicule and harassment.

My question is, if obama succeeds in destroying America and the Contitutition, will that make EEO and civil rights laws null and void, and open up a no holds barred scenario?

Interesting theory, huh.

I’ve lived in Louisiana before. And while I cannot say I like racism I understand why they are the way they are.

Its very easy to become racist when demographic group gets everything handed to them by the government, gets advantages they don’t get and yet, for the most part, members of said demographic group end up being a drain on society and not taking advantage of the opportunities given to them.

You know. It may be an unpopular statement here but, the racism is going continue until certain groups start to hold their weight in America.

What you are describing how reasonable people today view blacks in random encounters is how reasonable folks view black culture (potentially dangerous) as they encounter it worldwide with the exception of maybe Bermuda.

Can anyone explain to me why that is.

Whites who only know black culture from Cosby reruns have no idea what I'm talking about.

However, this obsession we have in the west now about racism as like the biggest evil in the history of the world is crippling and the definition of racism has been diluted to mean almost anything including simply discussing the group behavior of negroid raced peoples.

And this obsession of racism has bled over to a revulsion of discussing other negative group behaviors by latinos, asians, religious minorities, and homosexuals yet has opened the door to revile whites and Christendom at the same time.

In the end, this is all about pursuing political power, and all traditional minorities in the West are having their day....because we are letting them and we have become too weak to stop them. We actually believe what they say about us..lol

Man....I would have never thought it would get this bad in only 52 years of living. As a parent of young kids I am confronted by this assault daily just as sure as if Indians had busted thru the perimeter of the homestead.

In about 1950 my mom shot and killed a black guy while he was breaking down her door. She was home alone with my oldest brother(a little baby at that time)The black guy had multiple arrests and convictions for burglary and one for rape. The local cops wanted to give her a medal. Blacks drove by yelling and screaming, waving signs, calling her a murderer, etc. My mom was an immigrant from Germany. The local prosecutor was jewish. First question out of his mouth was to ask my mom how many jews she had killed. My dad almost killed his first, and only jew at that point. The cops held my old man back.
That was 59 years ago. Nothing new under the sun.

Haven’t seen you posting for a while (could just be me) so good to see you.

I was very fortunate. I was attacked by five guy (who happened to be black) when I was at Cecil Field, FL back in the Seventies while in the US Navy. It was an seemingly, random attack that was not for robbery in a heavily populated area, with race as the apparent motive.

I was not hurt (they had been drinking, and I think did more damage to each other than me) and I managed to escape after a minute or so of the assault when they let up for a few seconds.

I don’t think I would have developed prejudicial attitudes, but who can say? None of us would think that would be the case, but I wasn’t raised that way.

But what really sealed it for me is when I immediately went to my supervisor who was black and told, him, his first response was: “Do you want to go find these guys and kick their asses?” (AD1 Woods was a good man...:)

I couldn’t have identified them anyway....which I hear is pretty common for assaults like that. But the fact that my supervisor was going to, by default, side with me was a powerful thing.

Way back in the early 70's, I was shot at (close range from carload blk guys hanging out car window) in an unsuccessful robbery attempt (I wasn't about to give him my money). ALV-615, still remember the license plate. I've never been unarmed since and probably won't ever have that type incident ever occur again as (I live in rural Alaska no blks); but I know what I will do if it ever does happen again. So it does foster racism in people as would be expected.

I've also lived in Indian Villages where I was the only White Boy, reverse racism of sorts and it does one good, being the hated minority for a year or so. I would never view Indians in a negative light, because I began to see the good in their society too; understand their culture. It was a good experience.

Oh, poo. Those aren’t even close to being relevant analogies. I’d hope the kids would already be afraid of lions.

Saying two kids are going to grow up hating black people because someone who happens to be black shot their father does no credit to those children or their faith. Hey, maybe they’ll grow up to be cops instead? Or doctors? Or nurses?

I doubt they could get away with officially calling it a “white service” and a “black service.” I assume it’s unofficial, but a matter of whites and blacks each choosing to worship with their own kind? If so, that really proves that people, white and black, liberal or not, will choose to self-segregate every chance they get.

When I was a kid, my family spent 6 mos. in Norfolk, VA, while my dad went to war college. The city schools had decided to bus, so we military brats were sent from our base to a school in the inner city. The teachers hated us because 1/3 of their classes showed up in Sept, left in January, then a whole new crop of kids came in. The kids hated us because we were either white or we were military and had traveled and experienced more in our lives than they had. The locals hated us because we were invaders into their turf; the city buses we rode had to keep changing routes. At one point I had a window blown out next to me by some dork with a brick. We got beat up a lot. My brother had a knife pulled on him at his school because he was white. Left a sour taste in my mouth for the South. However, after meeting some fine people from Nashville, and reading "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War," I might be mellowing.

Fast forward to Central California. In our schools there are blacks to hates Mexicans. They hate Mexicans because a lot of the Mexicans are here illegally. Because they're here illegally, they can take jobs for far less wages than whites or blacks can. The blacks have their gangs, the Mexicans have their gangs. Both groups are fed from the public gvt. teat, which makes those of us middle class people of all colors resent them because it seems we're the ones paying all the taxes. The Mexican kids I teach use "Hindu" as a racial slur, and use Spanish, but not in my classroom. My little 9 year old geniuses have caught on to the fact that English is Power, especially economically, so they have a higher motivation to learn.

The teachers hated us because 1/3 of their classes showed up in Sept, left in January, then a whole new crop of kids came in. The kids hated us because we were either white or we were military and had traveled and experienced more in our lives than they had. The locals hated us because we were invaders into their turf; the city buses we rode had to keep changing routes. At one point I had a window blown out next to me by some dork with a brick. We got beat up a lot. My brother had a knife pulled on him at his school because he was white. Left a sour taste in my mouth for the South. However, after meeting some fine people from Nashville, and reading "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War," I might be mellowing.

Fast forward to Central California. In our schools there are blacks to hates Mexicans. They hate Mexicans because a lot of the Mexicans are here illegally. Because they're here illegally, they can take jobs for far less wages than whites or blacks can. The blacks have their gangs, the Mexicans have their gangs. Both groups are fed from the public gvt. teat, which makes those of us middle class people of all colors resent them because it seems we're the ones paying all the taxes. The Mexican kids I teach use "Hindu" as a racial slur, and use Spanish, but not in my classroom. My little 9 year old geniuses have caught on to the fact that English is Power, especially economically, so they have a higher motivation to learn.
