Skip to comments.Obama's America: Why Black Grievance Will Never End
Posted on 04/11/2012 4:42:08 AM PDT by BO Stinkss
When I was 12 years old, I used to play tennis at a certain public park in the Bronx. One day it got back to me that a black fellow at the courts, whose name I forget, said, "Selwyn doesn't like black people." This raised my eyebrows. You see, I had never really thought about the man one way or the other. And what occupied my mind were forehands, backhands, topspin, and volleys, not race. So the only thing I could figure was that I was probably in a funk one day and didn't hear and acknowledge a greeting he might have extended. Whatever the perceived slight, race was a factor. After all, imagine the reaction if he had been white. At worst, he might have thought, "Selwyn is a self-absorbed brat," which would have been closer to the truth. Or he might just have concluded that I was having a bad day (I was an aspiring player at the time but, lamentably, had a lot of bad days). Instead, he saw bad intentions where none existed.

Like 60% of Americans, I am of mixed race. One of my greatgrandmothers was colored. My father’s father was part Native American Indians.
Obama could do much to alleviate and educate Black Americans concerning the cause of most of their problems. But he won’t. Because he’s Barack Obama, the leftist, racial agitator and destroyer of civilized society. Telling Black Americans they’re the people responsible for their problems will lose him a lot of votes. Therefore, he won’t tell them the truth.
This writer is so ‘DEAD ON’ on his take of where and why things are where they are with the majority of black people in this country. It’s in the ‘mind-set’ propaganda being shoved into them by the race-baiters in their own community, including the illustrious race-baiting President that we have. He represents how the majority of black people think. Fortunately, there are some black people that do not believe this way on account that they actually rely on ‘reason’ to think for themselves, but (sadly) they are in the minority in my opinion.
Interesting video from PJMedia:
Watch the video link I posted in #5.
Would you expect the next generation of Muslims to relinquish their grievances against Jews when anti-Semitism is taught in tens of thousands of madrassahs worldwide and presented as part of Islamic religion?
The author then makes a very apt comparison to the "hate whitey" industry in the US by observing:
Yet this "Jacksonizing" of youth is now endemic in the black community.......The result is that they view whites through colored glasses, seeing bad intentions and Caucasian conspiracies where none exist. Hey, that's just the way white people are.
I like the term "Jacksonizing". This should become part of our vocabulary.
I would cast my vote in favor of a new healthcare plan, all blacks will get equal rights with white people and rich white crackers will have to build a swimming pool for each and every black family.
He doesn't know the truth. He believes wholeheartedly in BLT and CRT! He is their poster child.
We need National Get Over It Day. All grievances will be aired for one day, then put it to rest. Everyone then continues to follow the same laws and hopefully a good moral code and pursue happiness and success which is NOT based on blame and anger toward someone else.
Yes. It was excellent! Glad to see stuff like this. It gives some hope that there still some reason out there with black folks.
I like this one cause I’ve heard it a million times growing up:
“A black man has no place in America”
and My response always was:
“If you believe that then why are you still here?”
The response was always stunned silence or some Marxist-based claptrap garbage quoted by my “accuser”. Nowadays it’s all about money and how much they can rip off “The Man” (A euphemism for “Whitey”).
It’s sad that for many black Americans there has been no progress at all in moving out of Poverty and despair. After nearly 50 years of anti-poverty programs we still have poverty and the same angry underclass. It makes you wonder if it is all done deliberately.
This has been the attitude of some of the “conservatives for reparations” crowd. Yes, they exist. Their mindset goes like this - “OK, fine, we’ll give each black person $X, then they’ll finally stop whining.”
‘bammers himself opposed the “one big check” idea, even though most of his supporters among blacks thought this was exactly what he was going to do. He favored perpetual on-going wealth transfers, because the point is NOT to redress any grievances, but to use those grievances to advance the power of the State.
My caring about “black grievance” is nil. They as a group are like the palistinian goons...if it isn’t one thing it is another. Who cares??? We all live in the most free country in the world. They are blessed as we all are. It is equal OPPORTUNITY...get off your butt and get to work to better you and yours. Stop griping incessantly. As I said...who cares?????
“Obama could do much to alleviate and educate Black Americans concerning the cause of most of their problems.”
And this is the great lost opportunity of the Obama presidency.
Esp. since he really IS a good example of what more black American men need to be: a loyal husband and a good father.
Esp. since he could talk about his own rather disrupted childhood, how not having his own father around was hurtful to him, and why he decided to do things differently.
(OK, I mean maybe Obama is really just some Manchurian candidate and he would have nothing to say on these subjects. I’ve never read, and would never read any of his books, maybe he did discuss some of these topics there. But just let me go on for the sake of argument.)
He went into office with a lot of goodwill from not only his supporters but many others who were willing to give him a chance. (Hey, not us on the hard right, but forget about us for a moment.)
He must have really seemed like a great hero to black americans (and I can’t blame any black person for thinking that way at that time).
He could really, really have done some good.
And he just didn’t even try to really lift up or encourage black people. He just did the worst of race pandering and plied his commie agenda.
So, now we are all much worse off and a unique opportunity is lost forever.
I’m convinced this is all because Obama doesn’t give a hoot about anybody but himself.
Help my fellow black americans? Hmmmmm, nope, I’d rather hit the links instead.
Obama had the chance to improve the plight of blacks in this country but he failed miserably and made the situation much worse.
Good for you! You can claim protected class status and demand reparations!
And what it means without coming out and saying so is that the Gov’t has chosen sides and if your white, its not your side the Gov’t has chosen.
We must turn the tide against liberalism before America
is swept away by their tsunami. Please do your part.
Support conservative candidates. Vote. Support Free Republic.

I say this to every one I argue with: “Get over Yourself.”
But mark my word, they NEVER will. And it’s sad, as it’s no way to go through life — perpetually angry and seeing yourself as a victim, therefore, wanting to victimize others. I have been on a couple of message boards and they really, really beleive that the White Man is evil, is out to get them, has wrought horrible suffering throughout the world, etc. They are TAUGHT this.
It’s no wonder a lot of them suffer constant hypertension and related health problems.
Some manage to escape the plantation, however. But even they must have to deal with the guilt of having being successful.
The plaint has become a genome pair in their DNA
I agree with most of your statements but I do have a problem with the “Who Cares?” aspect of your point of view.
My argument is we have to care because the continued existance of this underclass is merely a tool for power mad members of the Liberal “Overclass” who uses these poor slobs for their own purpose, mainly getting their own political “Hacks” elected. The worst part of this is is that race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton continually use these folks as tools to further their own ambitions as well.
Only by somehow resolving the issue, hopefully permanently, of reducing this underclass through programs that actually work can we elimate this nonsense as a political force within the country and send Jackson and Sharpton on their merry way.
I would not consider him a black American. He did not have a typical life. Most black Americans I know have never been out of their neighborhoods much less lived in a foreign country.
“As for whites, if our concessions won’t help, what can we do? Well, while we shouldn’t respond to hate with hate or think being on its receiving end absolves us of the obligation”
If the author is right, then there is no real solution except a return to a separation of the races.
0bama needs to tell the MSM to call him a white black just like he is.
The only “program” that works is for them to get to work. Offensive to them...surely. However, that is the “program”. If they don’t work, then they should suffer the consequences. All this job training that has blown taxpayer money for decades comes down to is what I cann learning the 3 S’s: shower, showup and shutup. A cold attitude in this day of sensitivity, compassion and kindness.

Ping for later
Grievances are aired on Festivus. Isn’t anything sacred anymore?......................
"I'm more at ease in a room full of Chinese people, than I would be in a room full of black American rap artists. And my personal predilections aside, I think the big division in our society is always black/non-black. The other stuff - Hispanics, Asians - is a bagatelle by comparision. this makes sense paleoanthropologically too. Homo Sapiens first left Africa, then differentiated into other races."
“...Only by somehow resolving the issue, hopefully permanently, of reducing this underclass through programs that actually work...”.
Here is a program proposal- The parasitic slobs take responsibility for themselves.
And those that do “think for themselves” or reason as you have said, have to be very careful not to be viewed as “sell-outs”.
This is usually a matter of economics. Black neighborhoods are typically poor. Once blacks start moving up they tend to move away from the all black areas. Most can't afford to move, they are stuck whether they like it or not.
One thing for certain. What we are doing now isn't working. In addition with the current Marxist agenda, PC attitude and path we are on things will only get worse, much worse.
Looks like it's no longer available ...
Now with the explosion of single, female led black households you are starting to see the negative affects. I always argue with women that with a few exceptions, women cannot raise boys.
While the article applies to race it also applies to the politics of many Dems who see economic oppression everywhere while on the public dole. They refuse to see economic reality or discuss public policy in a rational way. I’ve had this discussion with people who are all white but refuse to believe what is clear and in front of their face. And yes, they voted for Obama.
Remember that a “civilized” advanced nation such as Germany fell for the evil of Hitler. These were 100% white people who we now see as delusional to believe his crazy ideas. I continue to marvel at the archival footage showing what they did to their fellow citizens and peoples that they conquered. To this day I don’t understand it.
I’m white. I was never a racist because I thought it was just plain dumb and made no sense. But this isn’t really about race. It’s about irrationality and that afflicts all of mankind. I don’t think we will ever be rid of it. The best we can hope for in the short run is to be rid of the would be tyrant in the White House. That’s the clear and present danger that I see.
You are right. Obama should have arrested the Black Panther leaders who issued terroristic threats against Zimmerman and the non-black community. He also should call for Jackson and Sharpton to go home and for people to allow the investigation to proceed peaceably.
That isn’t what he wants. He wants war and blood in the streets. We have to vote this man out in November.
Every culture has its problems. The Chinese have criminal organizations, a ruthlesss government. The Mexicans have gangs and corruption.
Teaching forgiveness and Christ and using the rule of fair law and not backing down to thugs is the only way for some peace in our life times.
On average, blacks in our country have it - for now - better than blacks in any country on earth. I have had black friends come here with nothing, work hard and become successful. The grievances and unforgiving attitudes hold so many black and whites down. It ruins their lives.
There's is an active socialist movement promoting a divide and conquer strategy against Americans and American culture. Those who are fooled by the socialists will suffer for it. Some people are smart enough to see through what the left is trying to do. Most aren't...
Abstract thought. I think the majority of Dems lack the ability to think abstractly. There are exceptions on the left like George Soros who uses his intellect for evil and to manipulate the masses. The Democrat leaders tell their voters how smart they are. They stroke their egos and the voters become confused.
They don’t understand the leaders economics, but like the subjects who refused to see the emperor had no clothes, they puff up their chins and claim to understand.
So easy to throw that line out ... "sell outs" to disparage opposing opinion to the 'party line'. That's what liberal blacks say about conservative blacks.
Well that is the sad but true facts on why conservative blacks are so hated by liberal blacks, the conservative blacks.
In truth, slave-descendant black America is dying out.
This is concealed in demographics by the today much greater immigration from Africa. But many African blacks are here to be industrious and succeed, and neither want nor are willing to embrace the cultural baggage of SD blacks.
There is an extraordinary combination of self-destructive factors causing this voluntary extinction of SD blacks. To begin with is the loss of the nuclear family, which is universally essential to human development and success.
A 70% illegitimacy rate is catastrophic to a people, and now it has been statistically proven that children of single parents have a high probability of becoming criminals. A self-inflicted disaster.
Add to this a horrifically high homicide rate among black teenagers and adults. And to the extensive use of long term birth control by black women. And abortion, which in NYC alone is now resulting in the death of between 30,000-38,000 black babies every year.
And those who are criminal and incarcerated to a great extent miss out on the “reproductive window”, so even if they survive they will be childless.
But no effort is being made to distinguish SD blacks from immigrant blacks, which has allowed this demographic collapse to escape much attention.
And those SD blacks who have been fortunate enough to retain their morality, insist on marriage before children and two parent families, encourage their children to become educated, etc., will likely be all that remains of SD blacks in just a few generations. The rest will have died out.
Folks are becoming numb to the "racist" accusation as the end-all from Holder's people. I see more of the saturation effect every day and the number of Americans that are realizing this is increasing.
I posted this back in January...
Folks would do well to become completely desensitized from the "you are a racist" card.
It will NEVER stop.
No need to react or defend as there is nothing anyone can do to satisfy them.
They are handed taxpayer money and they are not appeased.
They are handed housing and they are not appeased.
They are handed 60k a year jobs and they are not appeased.
They are handed college degrees like they are coming off a Xerox copy machine and they are not appeased.
They are handed free food and they are not appeased.
They are handed elevated preference in all things and they are not appeased.
They are handed "recognition" of a phony Christmas and they are not appeased.
NOW they want to be handed default judgments in criminal cases of violence against "the white man." Dead or Alive bounties which are indisputable violations of American Citizens rights are not investigated or prosecuted because the criminal offering the bounty is black. Blacks are now demanding "UN intervention" so as to obtain "reparations."
The list is endless as the origin is incurable.
So, it is a total waste of time.
No matter what is done, what is given, what is preferred, there is NOTHING that will work.
They are about three generations into the "Grand Appeasement Society" and they are worse that useless, worse than worthless. They have "adapted" into the environment of appeasement and feed from it.
