Skip to comments.Don't bother posting WND article "Blogger: Why don't blacks behave?"
Posted on 07/14/2012 9:22:51 PM PDT by Perseverando
I posted the above article by Colin Flaherty a couple of hours ago and it was pulled by the Moderator as being "too much." The article at WND begins with a video of a young black man named Mike Hagler who is basically asking (based on his observations) why blacks have to always be so violent at public events.
I posted one comment: ["Yes, I guess I'm a racist. You see I believe the human race is far superior to any other.
If I'm not mistaken, "race" originated with the secular humanists pushing evolution, eugenics and other such nonsense.
"Race" is a racist term used by racists. Can't we all just get along? How about if we use "people groups" instead?"]
I thought the article was pertinent, as we all know that there's a festering racial problem that is dividing us in America and that is being constantly stoked by BHO, his attorney general, minions, fellow community organizers, the MSM, and progressives in general, etc.
Apparently the subject will NOT be discussed here.
Yes, this is obviously a sensitive and very "politically incorrect" subject, but it is my understanding that we Freepers were not politically correct and had vowed to never bow to political correctness. Hey, if we can't discuss it here, then where can we discuss it?
The last time I checked the discussion several hours ago, I noticed that some of the comments were getting a little "harsh." If they were going over the top, then I believe the moderator should have deleted the comments as he deemed them inappropriate, or even locked the thread.
I just don't understand the need to delete this article from the vast archives of the news database that is Free Republic.
Anyway, I'm standing by to be taken to the wood shed for a spanking if I must.
We are a nation of cowards and we refuse to have the conversation about race which we so desperately need to have.
What “above article”? Why not link it?
Whatever, still a bit CS as far as I am concerned, but no one has called me PC that I know of. A spade is a spade and all that, tired of cringing media types that refuse to do their job.
Didn’t want to push my luck.
For example, I think a culture that regularly refers to women as being bitches and whores ("ho's") is very inferior to my own culture. I believe a culture that extols "gangsta" behavior is also inferior.
There are other cultures that I greatly admire and think may be superior to my own culture.
And there is not a 100% correlation between race and culture, either.
So, I guess I'm prejudiced! :O
Sometimes a thread that gets a lot of flaming gets yanked rather than the flames being put out one by one. I guess it’s less headache for the moderators. It seems half of FR is comprised of master painters with a broad brush, which in touchy areas like this can hurt feelings all around.
Cool. I’ll push mine then.
Can’t say “mulatto”, can’t say “Osambo”, can’t say that Jews want to “repair the world”, but can say that Apple computer users are “gay”. Hurray!
I thought that was what “locking” a thread was for.
Long before I encountered a fat Oriental female teenager who behaved and spoke like a black ghetto denizen, long before that, I knew that it was culture, not race.
It could be put a bit both more precisely and more diplomatically, like why is so much misbehavior engendered by American black culture. It gets to be a battle of the broad brushes very quickly. We all know many black people in America that we’d never be ashamed to be found in the company of. It’s a pity that per capita to their race they are far fewer than those of other colors, and yes it is self-racism that is to blame.
That’s mostly when they want to redirect discussion to an older thread of which the locked one is a duplicate. If there’s mostly a bunch of flames, then it all gets rolled up and tossed out.
Good to hear feedback from everyone, but alas I must hit the sack. It’s been a very strenuous several days for Mrs. P and me keeping the grandchildren.
No! You cannot do that, a certain FR member will come prancing in here with his logo attached, and tell the world that this is hate speech and he is a protected class on FR and will sic the mods on you.
Well, then, just post this...over and over and over...
What bemuses me is, perhaps, how much white Hellywood (pun) profits from this misbehavior. Dysfunction sells media. All the rap, no limit n-word crap that guys like Trayvon came out of, it’s making white moguls rich, not just black artists who get all the visible glory.
I didn’t read the article because I found the title itself offensive.
“not just black (rap) artists”
“Artists?” Really? That crap they put out is the diametric opposite of art.
It is the audible symptom of spiritual disease.
I really like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, George Benson, Albert King, Dizzy and the Yardbird, et al. But all rap, IMO, should be ridiculed and reviled.
Maybe because there’s a real problem that unfairly characterizes the majority of Black America.
Consider the title: “Why are women whores?”. Surely there’s only a handful, so why misrepresent women in general?
Unfortunately, the title “Why are Priests pedophiles?” is acceptable in the mainstream even though it grossly misrepresents the Church.
Yeah, the Country has become sissified, but the intentionally malicious title in question is plain stupid. Yes, it’s intentionally malicious, and it’s plain, #ing stupid.
I see a lot of people saying “it is culture, not race”.
This is pretty much the same argument as “nature versus nurture”.
“It” is both nature and nurture, and both race and culture.
Don’t let the PC police cow you.
I have real-life examples of it.
A couple months ago, I heard girls screaming out front. It was around midnight. So I went out and stood in the driveway. A few blacks walked by and I heard one say to the other, “be careful or he’ll call the cops on us because we’re black”.
The other day I turned onto a street. Apparently, the care full of blacks took umbrage to me entering the same street they were driving on. At the next light a front passenger started to get out while looking at me.
So yes, they behave badly, especially if you’re white. I did NOTHING to provoke this behavior.
Apple logo, circa `98:
Suspect they know absolutely nothing will come of it if the cracker pushes things, so great fun to watch him slink down in his car seat, pretending like we not be here at all.............we be bad and all....Holder got's our back.
Well, yes. We should encourage the use of "rap artist"... and then, because it's too long and awkward, suggest it be shortened to 'rappist.'
Think of all the fun you could have with spell-checkers/auto-correct then. ;)
“The American Black Culture is toxic”
Your post on the other thread was much better. I copied it, personalized it, and plan to use it without giving you proper attribution. All in the spirit of that great plagiarist and whore chaser, Martin Luther King.
I am afraid that we are going to be like south Africa in 10 years where the white population is going to be persecuted 24/7 by a angry violent black population that enjoy beating white farmers and putting them into burning tires.
If Obama gets in he will ban guns / ammo and whites get to play the role of helpless victims . This is a liberal fantasy except that they will also get victimized for their skin color “white girl bled a lot”.
Maybe we could lock the blogger in a room with Thomas Sowell, J.C. Watts, Herman Cain, Condi Rice, Alan Keyes, Allen West and Clarence Thomas. Then he could ask them, "Why don't you people behave?"
Well said hosepipe, as always. well said. Your lengthy tenure here grants you the gravitas to state what newer members such as myself fear to post. Please keep up the good fight of battling political correctness with the truth. I would surmise that a great many FReepers are in total agreement with you.
IT’s free with your EBT!
Amazing video. This country is doomed. Fuel up the escape pod.
I have some decent black friends but I reserve the right to despise anyone I want.. Currently I’m not big on white traitors performing sedition and espionage.. like most of the White Hut..
The honor is mine..
“the intentionally malicious title in question is plain stupid.”
I don’t know who wrote the headline, but these are the words of the teenage black blogger to whom they refer:
Every time there is an event going on, people want to pull out guns and go crazy, said Hagler, the teenage video blogger from Milwaukee. Everything is getting cancelled: State fairs. Summerfest. All people want to do is fight. Yall acting like animals. And it is crazy to say it is our own people acting that way.
He continued, Its crazy when you go to an event and there be a majority white people there. As soon as black people come around that get to moving out of the way. They already know what is going to happen.
Its like when you want to go to Juneteenth. I aint going to go to Juneteenth because people already know what is going to happen. People are going to be shooting and fighting.
Given that, and the facts set forth in the article, I don’t think a charge of malice is justified.
Everybody knows that the savages are only a segment of the black population. Requiring people to dance around on eggshells in a pink tutu every time the savages are discussed is not productive.
Intentionally malicious? One could say far worse than “don’t behave” without stretching the truth an iota. These murdering savages are a serious problem, and one that will require both intellectual honesty and a stern heart to solve.
“theres a real problem that unfairly characterizes the majority of Black America.”
Nonsense. The vast majority of mischaracterization flatters US citizens with visible sub-saharan ancestry. Look what happens whenever someone successfully protects himself from one or more of our melanin-enriched problem children.
“Your honor, this white scum should have waited until the tip of Duquan’s knife actually entered his heart before he drew his weapon.”
It is rapidly coming down to a choice between being killed on the street, or imprisoned for self-defense and killed in prison.
Black culture is toxic but white culture is becoming more sodomous..
America is becoming the New Sodom..
But...but...but...The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, PhD, Junior (praise his name) was a Republican! Therefore we must all love, honor and glorify him now and forever. How dare you write anything less than totally admirable about this saintliest of men. /s
The “PC” disease creeps into all elements of life and cultures.
Freedom of speech may very well come to an end in America.
I have no problem calling a spade a spade, anymore then calling most FReepers freedom loving patriots.
If the PC police move in here, FR will cease to exist.
For those who only read the headline and were shocked, the article regards a BLACK blogger lamenting a giant upsweep in black-on-white violence that is not being reported.
This major news story is even suppressed here on FR because of political correctness.
Well said. Last I looked (and it has been a long time) Obunga’s minions were mostly crackers. I am sure they imagine their socialist, seditious thinking makes it all just fine...........
There is indeed a problem, and I’m sure the substance of the video proves that out. The issue, however, is the headline which was the focus of my comment.
Something like: “An epidemic of Black Gang-bangers” is fair game. The generalization that includes Black America in its entirety is problematic.
Again, I’m only commenting on the title and the objection to its rejection. I’m not in any way attempting to dispel the seriousness of the video’s/article’s substance.
That’s my favorite Gahan Wilson cartoon of all time.
Race talk is on a one-way street. And it’s going the wrong way.
For people with any doubts, just look at the *big cities* and it's getting worse exponentially.
If you’re speaking of Swordmaker, that’s BS.
I’m a Mac owner and use many of them in my business, and every time I stated that I wouldo get tons of Freepers saying we were all gay, and huge amounts of abuse loaded on us, just because we used Macs.
Thank God that’s gone, as it was loathsome to go to a Sword thread to read about our chosen OS, only to be roundly insulted and be called a bunch of homosexuals.
Exceptions do not nullify generalizations.
Exceptions qualify generalizations.
The group u mentioned are exceptions.
If you do business based on exceptions you will go broke.
Meanwhile its applauded to generalize my group...white deep southern Christian male over 45
Arguably the most conservative demographic in the nation at around 90% voting GOP in 2008
Reckon folks wax platitudes like yourn by coincidence?
