Blacks should be like Jews
WND ^ | 15 hours ago | Aliza Davidovit

Posted on 07/13/2012 7:43:58 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

I have interviewed some of the most successful Jews in the world, people who emerged from the Holocaust or started out with nothing and who today are on Forbes’ list of billionaires. There is an underlying theme to their success stories: They got out of bed, worked hard and pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps. Even Mayor Bloomberg recounted to me how in his youth he made money by parking cars and told me the trick to his success was merely getting up earlier and working harder than the next guy. Mark Cuban told me he started out selling garbage bags door to door. The Jews, the most persecuted people in history know one thing from their pan-generational sufferings: God helps those who help themselves.

If Barack Obama really cared for the black community more than he cares for himself he wouldn’t point to the rich to invoke class envy – he’d be pointing to them and say, “OK, let’s learn from their success and then do as they do.” Instead of demanding that the wealthy pay their fair share, he would demand that welfare recipients pull their own weight.

It’s amazing how President Obama is able to raise millions (potentially a billion) for his own campaign to secure his own job and yet he can’t raise one dime for this country or for black America, where the unemployment rate is at 14.4 percent. Back in 2008 he offered and glamorized hope and then in a treacherous bait-and-switch delivered food stamps instead. Is that pocket change you can believe in?

That's "acting white." Forget it.

Obama’s in an unprecedented position to go to the black community and give them hell for the current state of their culture.

But he won’t do it.

This Roman Catholic has always said to those who attack Jews:

Rather than eviscerate, why don’t you emulate?

Yeah, it's almost as if black people really the only minority group in the country that is incapable of living in America based on their own merits. They're just Not Ready for Prime Time, and after all these years, they just may never be.

As insulting as that notion may be, that's what the Democrats keep telling them they are. Sort of on the same level as pets, I suppose, because that what they are willing to settle for.

No wonder they hate black people like Herman Cain.

Any person that has an abiding respect for God, education, work, family and community is not going to end up shoveling manure.

The thing is, there are plenty of blacks who are already doing fine, working, living a nice middle classed life, or greater. You just don’t hear about them, or they prefer not to be heard.

I somtimes blame these folks all the more for not speaking up. For not pointing to themselves as an example — instead they stay quiet, or continue to pull for the Democrats while living higher then the rest.

People prefer “it’s not your fault” to “be responsible”.

It’s just how evil works.

I'll take that category for $500

"what is lack of intelligence, poor work ethic, no moral/ethics and cherishing and celebrating stupidity, intoxication and irresponsibility."

Great point and I agree. I once worked with a black physician (I’d love to call him successful, but his skills were a bit on the lacking side) in Muskegon, MI who loved to rail about the lack of opportunities for blacks and essentially how it was the white people’s fault.
I asked him what he was doing to give a hand up to his people and where did he volunteer his time or money.
He stared at me like I had 3 eyes and then changed his ranting to how deplorable the living and educational conditions were in Muskegon Heights due to the white folk holding back the po black folk.
I asked him where in the Heights did he live and what schools did his children attend...”I don’t live in the Heights...I live in Mona Shores on Lake Front property and my children attend private schools”
He would corner me every other week to have these types of
conversations. It was fun to point out his hypocrisy and his lack of concern for his fellow blacks. Of course, he never saw it, but I entertained myself during each conversation.

I think you're right. Dems treat blacks as if they're not only inferior - but like they can't 'do' better. Much of life really is getting up, going to work, trying harder. Dems have created a situation where if blacks are told the truth - it really IS about the choices you make in life - that the person telling that truth is a racist.

Dems benefit from blacks being thin-skinned, angry, and dependent - they have every intention of keeping them that way.

Other ethnic groups come from countries so poor they can hardly eat - and in three generations they're full fledged Americans. Blacks are at the bottom because ideas and excuses liberal elites have given them don't work. (elite liberals do NOT give the same 'ideas' of victim-hood and grievance to their own children - liberal children are told to study hard, compete fairly etc... )

I used to go to Africa frequently and the lecture I would give the people was threefold: 1) The west achieved its greatness from Christianity .... and not islam and 2) America had Germans in its development. When they hit a problem, the figured it out and built their way through it and 3) none of this is possible without peace and stability. Picking up guns solves nothing excepting perpetuating tribal grievances.

To solve their problems, they would have to find the Christian-German in them! Better yet, try to emulate the most successful people on the planet.... the jooooo. That means outlook, work ethic, morals .... total perspective.

J. Paul Getty on three steps to become wealthy:

1. Rise early every morning.
2. Work hard all day.
3. Find oil.

It's easier to achieve step #3 if you do steps #1 and #2 first.

I was referring to their work/education ethic, which I thought was the thrust of this Thread, vis a vis, the lack of same in blacks.

Regarding the political and moral proclivities of the Jewish majority, bluntly, they can go F#$k themselves.

I know the enemy when I see it.

Yes, but step #3 eludes most people who do a very good job on #1 and #2. As I understand it, Bloomberg's fortune grew out of an innovation that he came up with and developed. And Getty was born into a family that was already in the oil business. So intelligence, creativity, drive, and circumstances are some additional important factors that Bloomberg left out of his comment.

Blacks whine that they are unique in being obviously “different”, but I would argue that recent black African immigrants are no less “different” in appearance, yet the ones that come here with a work ethic do well.

People of Asian extraction from various places also are no less obviously NOT white, but that has not stopped them from succeeding.

Whitey isn’t keeping anyone down. Black America is its own worst enemy.

You're right. It's not the color of the skin - it's liberal ideas given to the underclass. Ideas that offer excuses for failure... that tell American blacks 'it's not their fault'.

The creepy thing is Liberal Elites DON'T tell their own children the same. When it's their little white kids, they haul them around to ballet, soccer and tennis lessons. The enroll them in the best schools and teach their kids to compete. When 'suzy' comes home with a bad grade, they hire a tutor. It's really sick what they tell blacks... In England the liberal elites told the same lies to their underclass - resentment, grievances, irresponsibility etc - and their underclass is (for the most part) white.

I'm with you on this Nepeta.

Why don’t liberal elites tell blacks the truth? The truth they use with their own children? In England the liberal elites told the same lies to their underclass - resentment, grievances, irresponsibility etc - and their underclass is (for the most part) white.

Both predominantly vote for DemoRats.

But It's OK, 'cause the blacks vote for the antisemitic DemoRats, and the Jews vote for the racist DemoRats.

They do.

They tell them that THEY only got ahead because of other liberals helping them by boosting them up and that those falling behind do so because of Reagan, Bush, the Tea Party....etc. They say that they want to help them all, but the evil racist ‘care only about the rich Republicans’ stop them
(this is where Romney really comes in handy for them.).

They also claim that the poor Republicans are just stupid and vote against ‘their own economic interests’ because the rich Republicans distract them by appealing to their racism.

Meanwhile you see who the Dems really take care of, the (government) teachers unions not the kids. But they claim both are the same in the long run.
