Authors Note: Ill be speaking at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio tonight! The event will start in Harrison Hall, Room 111, at 6 p.m. The speech is called Three Liberal Assaults on Free Speech (and Three Conservative Solutions). Because it is about free speech, the speech is free!
In my many years of serving on faculty hiring committees, I have often heard the statement minorities and women are encouraged to apply. It usually follows in close proximity to the statement our institution does not discriminate on the basis of race. The two statements cannot be reconciled by logic. But, then again, logic is considered a form of white oppression at the postmodern university.
Nor can those hiring statements be validated empirically. Not all minorities are encouraged specifically to apply at my university. Orthodox Jews are not encouraged. White Mormons are not encouraged. And neither are white Hispanics. The fact that minorities really means black renders the second statement even less credible than the first. We really discriminate when we take affirmative action against discrimination. I hope someday we take affirmative action against illogic.
This practice of establishing certain preferred minorities has been going on for a long time. But, I did not fully understand it until I was asked the following question about the Zimmerman/Martin controversy: Dr. Adams asked a former student, what exactly is a white Hispanic? Without pausing, I responded It is a pathetic attempt to say that blacks are the only legitimate minority in America. Sometimes our most honest responses are given reflexively. And they spur our own thinking, not just that of others.
Make no mistake about it: At issue in George Zimmerman's case is not whether he had a right to shoot Trayvon Martin. It is the future of how race will be viewed in America. That is why Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are clinging on to the Martin controversy.
In their struggle to maintain their racial minority status, race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton regularly invoke the one-drop rule. The one-drop rule states that anyone who has even a drop of black blood is considered black. The rule was once used by white racists in the South. They thought that anyone who had a drop of black blood was contaminated, so to speak. Just a drop of black blood made them both intellectually and morally inferior.
But, now race hustlers are using the one drop rule to advance their own political agenda. Given that half of black pregnancies end in abortion, Jesse Jackson and his ilk must have some means of keeping their numbers and corresponding political influence from dwindling.
Of course, the one-drop rule operates differently with respect to Hispanics. Black civil rights leaders now want to say that having a single drop of white blood means you are white, not Hispanic. The reason for that is obvious: open-border immigration has made Hispanics the largest minority in America numerically, if not politically, speaking.
It is also worth noting that these Hispanic immigrants are often Roman Catholic. That means they are less likely to abort their children than someone who practices black liberation theology. It helps explain why Hispanics are now 15% of the United States population while blacks constitute only 12%.
The gradual displacement of blacks as Americas preferred minority is producing a powder keg of racial tension in Florida and elsewhere. So much so that even the normally wise Bill Cosby cant quite come to terms with it. Cosby wants to think this is all about guns but it isnt. Its about race, Bill. And the wave of inter-racial violence in the wake of the Zimmerman release should have tipped you off.
Things are going to get worse before they get better. Mitt Romney is going to choose Senator Rubio as his running mate. He is going to run on a pro-life and pro-gun platform, regardless of his true beliefs, which are virtually indiscernible. And Hispanics will support Romney/Rubio in record numbers.
Eventually, blacks will figure out that the real threat to young men like Trayvon Martin is was not a white Hispanic named George Zimmerman. It was a white supremacist named Margaret Sanger.
“It helps explain why Hispanics are now 15% of the United States population while blacks constitute only 12%.”
This is the result of white lib’s policy of exterminating blacks, and bore fruit in the 2000 election of W. Enough Hispanics voted for him to outweigh the votes of the blacks they were brought in to replace. Compare the reaction to the shooting of Trayvon Martin to the whimpering when Hispanics gunned down those students in the Newark playground years ago (in what was unquestionably cold-blooded murder); death threats and bounties for the “white Hispanic”, and terror of the machete wielding “Aztec-types” (which included an illegal alien).
A couple of points here are indisputable.
Romney’s true beliefs are indiscernable.
The Trayvon Martin case is about race.
Indeed and whites better get proactive and form coalitions or we will continue to be the fair-haired stepchild.
That is the heart of the matter.The minority of the minority must be salvaged. The majority of the minority will kill them just as readily and perhaps first. It is bad business
The cities of America are already lost. Saving them and the majority of the minority is wasted effort
True, but it wouldn't have happened without overwhelming cooperation from blacks.
The real "divide" is not racial, but between people who consider themselves victims of forces beyond their control, and people who say, "I am responsible for my actions, and I accept the consequences."
This is a truly true statement.
In the philosophy class I took I asked, when blacks or other race class out numbers whites, then would whites become the minority? (the question was intended to make them think). Everyone I heard said NO! That is how the liberals and the black culture have twisted the intent.
The Thomas Sowell quotes thread has this gem:
17) “The vision of the anointed is one in which ills as poverty, irresponsible sex, and crime derive primarily from ‘society,’ rather than from individual choices and behavior. To believe in personal responsibility would be to destroy the whole special role of the anointed, whose vision casts them in the role of rescuers of people treated unfairly by ‘society’.”
I learned to think from Thomas Sowell.
It would be interesting to ask whether black people are a minority in Africa ;-).
Mike nails it in two sentences.
Later, rather than in my lifetime, the American black is going to figure out that the demonRATS and the nanny state are the cause of the collapse of the black family and all that entails, and when they turn, the demonRAT party will go the way of the whigs.
No, it was not Hispanics who voted for Bush. It was Cubans in Florida, who vote differently from other Spanish speaking groups.
Is Romney really stupid enough to select someone not eligible for the office?
He’s smart enough to ignore the “natural born citizen” cult who have been smacked down by decades of court decisions but still don’t get it. ;)
Sowell's amazing... Thanks for sharing.
