It's all a part of "The Plan." Barry is afraid of blacks losing control of DC.

We demand they give jobs to Ward 8 people regardless of their cultural situation.

Even after he was called on his racist "gaffe," when he should no longer have been speaking "off the cuff," but rather have been more wary, and choosing his words carefully, he didn't shy away from saying something as patently absurd - and still racist - as this!

Rather, he is now also accusing these shopkeepers (who only "happened" to be Asian "initially") of denying jobs to locals (from Ward 8) - for "cultural" reasons. So he is in effect still claiming that the shopkeepers are "culturally" (a code word for "ethnically") different from the locals.

Further, he accuses the shopkeepers of withholding jobs. I wonder: Does he expect these shopkeepers to somehow - "magically" - create jobs ex nihilo? Or wouldn't they have to instead stop giving them preferentially to some unidentified others (probably actual trusted family members)?

Regards,

When will the responsible intelligent blacks stand up to these racebaiters? Seems like the street always comes out no matter how high they move up the ladder. Here is a low life drug addicted politician who continues to get reelected. mindnumbing

Asians didn’t own slaves in America.
In fact, quite a few Asians were indentured servents up until WWI.
Most are not in the evil 1% catagory.
Most are not rich bankers or CEOs.
In otherwords,they are not “whitey” or “the jews”
So,why the hate?

why the hate?
It’s hard to explain.. They like to work, they make money off of selling lottery, Salems, 40’s and fifths in the worst parts of town. The employ their family members to keep costs down, they get married and they’re happy church going people.

They’re not afraid and they don’t like being robbed.

Blacks in DC want a minority to be able to push around.. The hispanics don’t take it, the gays are finally starting to push back and the asians are up next.

That city is slowly being rebuild by people with money and it’s becoming a more livable city but it’s also too expensive for those living on free Obama money, “disability” or no-show school district and metro jobs which is big part of the DC culture.
When I lived in the district, nobody and I mean NOBODY had a legit car registration (including inspections)nobody had legit cable and nobody paid any parking tickets. Clean license plates were better than gold. The process to evict someone in DC can take as long as 18 months so you pretty much don’t have to pay rent, move and start all over again.

I remember that a roommate was helping people out with their taxes and said people without jobs and income were walking in expecting to walk out with cash and got pissed when they were told that they needed a job and to be paying taxes to file a return. Truth was, he didn’t want to start up a form and tell people they owed money on their under the table job and winnings from the numbers.

Do you remember when this drug-addled, DIMocRAT loser got out of prison? His supporters sent busloads of them selves to the prison and escorted this criminal back to the WDC area. barry was then elected to the city council where he remains. These fools run the WDC government. Most of these DIMocRAT felons are actively either indicted or under investigation by the Feds. Truly shameful.

So,why the hate?
_____________________________

Probably because they look at the result instead of the problem.

The Asian’s probably do look at blacks funny and don’t trust the blacks. If you are innocent and upstanding, it would be annoying.

Not all blacks are out to rob or do harm but there are some who are and instead of trying to slap the bad apples into line, or clean up the issues within the black community—it is easier to be the angry and insulted victim.

Some are just plain old race-baiters and power seekers and it serves them well to keep the focus on anybody else but their own. They don’t want the race problem to go away.

If these pretenders really cared, they would quit running around looking for any table to play that race card at and instead start focusing on what they can do to change the black community.

They are hating over peoples reactions to them but people have reason to react as they do. Many haven’t been scoring well on their conduct...look and listen to much of the rap.

It is time to put that race card away and only use it for egregious situations.

Marion Barry along with demagogues like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are part of the “failure racket”. They need and want down and out blacks. They derive their power from them. If that base vanishes, their power base (i.e. “the mob”) vanishes. Asians moving into the neighborhood starting with nothing but hard work, improve their life and work their way up the ladder. Can’t have that; it puts a lie to the race baiters plea.

I live in a military community. Our county has the second-highest percentage of Asians in Missouri, and some of the highest percentages of blacks and Hispanics outside the major urban areas of our state.

I know for a fact that Asians and blacks and Hispanics can get along. Our mayor is black, as is one of our city aldermen. Our former mayor is married to a Korean and one of our current aldermen is married to a Filipina. Yes, our politicians fight, but race has little or nothing to do with those fights.

Race baiters need to get blasted for their bigotry.

For the same reason I won't support Muslims as a group, because the so called “good Muslims” are silent about what the bad Muslims do.

I can't support Blacks as a group, while they keep reelecting that race baiting, POS, crack head, Mary ann Berry. What credibility as a group can you have when people like Marion Barry, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Van Jones, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and on and on and on..... are your leaders? Your heroes?

Asians can’t be tolerated in these communities. They prove that it’s not the neighborhood that leads to poverty, it the people. Once the people of these poor communities figure our that they could elevate themselves above poverty without the poverty pimps, it’s over for the democrats.

The REAL reason they hate Asians so is that the Asians show how totally helpless unproductive Holder’s People are. They come to this country with little or nothing, work hard, open up restaurants and stores, become wealthy all in the space of one generation.

There is a guy here that came over as a 14 year old during the Vietnam Boat People time and now he is a millionaire real estate developer.

Can’t have people like that showing others that people who have been here for hundreds of years are not really ‘economically disadvantaged’, now can we?..............

There are responsible, intelligent African Americans standing up to dopes like Barry, but they’re shouted down by the Al Sharptons. There is a part of the black community that is poorly educated, not very experienced in the real World, and who will accept whatever nonsense the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons give them.

Despite their constant ranting about racism when it is perceived to be directed at them, blacks are often vocal racists when it comes to Latino, Jews, and Asians.

And those who rant the loudest like Sharpton and Jesse (Hymietown) Jackson are hypocrites and worse.

You can find racism in all races and I doubt that any one race has a corner on ‘kum by yah’ feelings of good will toward all races.

Blacks have always hated Asians.

Asians succeed where blacks fail, and Asians make no secret of their fear of and contempt for blacks.

Asians put blacks to shame and then don’t apologize for doing so.

Chinese Americans are like the Jews. Blacks kick them in the ass all the time, and Dems support them. Yet Chinese and Jews vote for Dems over GOP. Jews do it because past country club GOP mistreated their rich grandparents at the country club and GOP coalition include Jesus loving Christians. The Chinese on the other hand don’t vote for GOP because the GOP is leery of their homeland of China. So in a nutshell, perceived threats from GOP are worst then real threats from Dem blacks. Talking about insanity!!???

I am sick to death of race sick sick sick of it. Yeah you want to think your problems are because you have a tan, go right ahead “Afican Americans” but your hate is eating you alive and your culture breeds more of it.

My kid’s school wanted me to fill out a form indicating his race and I refused. They called me and wanted me to pick one over the phone and I refused and told them it was inane. They called him to the office, looked at him, checked some box and let him go.

RACE IS AN INVALID DENOMINATOR FOR ANYTHING.

Thanks for your observation on racism and political affiliation of minorities, especially on anti-Chinese racism.

To start, I think you may be underestimating the Jewish urge for social justice which motivates many Jews to gravitate to the Dems, whose rhetoric proclaims them to be on the side of the angels on this issue and the GOP as reactionary servants of the devil. It’s been drummed into the Jews for years that the Dems position on social justice issues protects them as a minority.

The underlying issue of course is their fear and distrust of the ‘common herd’ of Christians who have a past history of anti-Jewish discrimination, persecution and violence.

On the other hand, the Chinese have a long and traditional respect for ancestors, an ethos which sometimes surfaces as a cultural bias toward their ancestral homeland as superior to the barbarians outside their race and culture. That, rather than the current government or military posture of China, may be a reason some are ‘leery’ to use your words.

That may make Chinese-Americans suspect in the eyes of Americans of other races as Americans are famous for having little knowledge or appreciation for their previous cultures. After all, most of our ancestors were dissidents from those cultures and that’s why we’re here.

Or is that my own racism disguised as intellectual argument?

I guess what I’m trying to say is that all races generally have reasons (which are rational to them) for their cultural biases toward their own race. This cultural bias is usually translated as ‘racism.’ when turned against the “other” via actions or words.

The “other” looks different, dresses different, eats different and prays to a different God. For some, those things that make up a different cultural identity are potentially dangerous and certainly not ‘natural’ in the context of the ethos of the majority.

I venture that every race has disparaging words for the ‘other’ whether it be another country or race. It seems to be an everlasting part of what makes us humans operate within our own cultural identities.

Me, I’m a Texan, and everyone knows I hate anyone who isn’t one of God’s truly chosen people. YeeHAW!
