Dear White People' opens dialogue through humor
Monterey Herald ^ | 01/23/2014 | JULIE WALKER

Posted on 01/23/2014 8:09:13 PM PST by artichokegrower

Dear white people: It's not OK to throw a black-themed party where white students wear racist costumes and drink from cups that look like watermelons, especially to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Justin Simien, the writer and director behind the comedy "Dear White People," doesn't have to look far to illustrate how his movie parallels real life.

Dear black people: It's not OK to beat a World War Two vet to death in a parking lot

He died a soldier: World War II vet killed in beating tried to fend off attackers, cops say Delbert (Shorty) Belton, 88, tried to fight back when two teens attacked him in a Spokane, Washington, parking lot, police said. One suspect, Kenan Adams-Kinard, 16, was waiting Tuesday to be arraigned on first-degree murder charges. His alleged accomplice, 16-year-old Demetrius Glenn, is being held in lieu of $2 million bond.

This never happens:
Dear non-Irish-American people: It's not OK to throw an Irish-themed party where non-Irish-American students wear racist costumes and drink green beer from cups festooned with shamrocks, especially to commemorate St. Patrick's Day.
So, dear "black" people: get over yourself and shut up.

The freedom to throw tasteless parties is enshrined in the Constitution.

So, dear offended black people, stuff it. Feel free to throw a redneck party. I might even come if the barbecue is good enough.

Dear black people: why are you only 12% of the population, but commit 50% of the murders?

Man, I was puzzling about something similar this morning.

Seems to me these black folks are trying to mirror what they see as “white pride” (which is actually doing things more like God wanted them done in the first place) and doing it as “black pride.” Which of course is a step into the ghetto dominated, moral void!

If we have to have pride, maybe we should have “people pride.” Nobody is left out. After all God did make people in His image... no matter what color they are... so He has rights to boast on them, wouldn’t you think... the problem is that way too often we don’t act in accordance! (We otherwise call it sin.)

Sometimes it seems like their rhetoric is designed to make the white man sorry he ever enslaved them, and their actions designed to make him sorry he ever freed them.

Well that’s a perfect rhyme with the devil’s game.

Come to realize it, it IS the devil’s game. The bible told us so.

Dear Black folks if calling a black guy who walks, talks and behaves like a dirt bag a 'Thug' is actually a racist code for the 'N-word' then let me tell you the way you say 'White Folks' seems to me to be a racist word for 'Crazy Ass Crackers'!

I think we take such things way too seriously sometimes. If Whitey laughed at such things, Blackey might get mad at first, but then would collect his dignity and the game would soon end.

In other words I think the Crackers have a right to be Crazy Ass... not murder crazy or malice crazy, but hey, get a big ole redneck yeehaw on and don’t care about color! (And do tell the “Niggas” they are free to join whenever they wish, we will not discriminate unlike them.)

It’s actually worse than those numbers would make it appear.

The percentage of the black population committing those 50% of the murders is actually much smaller than 12%. They’re predominantly committed by young men. Eliminating women takes it down to about 6%. Eliminating the male children (real children, not gangbanger teens) and the elderly men brings the percentage of the population much closer to 4% or less.

Maybe and maybe not. The just of my post is everything is a 'code word' now days. Paranoia perminates sociaty to a point where I am surprise that conversations don't all go like this:

“Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?”

And again if someone tries to enslave you to feel morally responsible for their own nonsense... well if reasoning won’t work then laugh it off. Smile, knowing you tried your best to be kind, and it’s not your fault they’re characterizing you as Beelzebub’s brother.

The not-so-clever “it’s code” tactic is meant to stifle speech, to repress criticism, to emasculate the civil White voice, etc.

This tendency towards PRESUMPTUOUSNESS is growing by the day.

anything uttered in the service of reframing REALITY is acceptable to this type.

Dear Black people,
Obama is not really black.
He was elected by a million racist
democrat voters who thought
he was light enough to be “clean”.

Then he was reelected because they thought
since he is “black” he needs more time because
deep down they believe “blacks “ are inferior.

People will come up with a long list of excuses but the reality is most black dysfunction is rooted in an inferiority complex and envy coupled with a rejection of “white” western civilization which is synonymous with Judeo-Christian values. Now they are regressing to tribal raids under cover of PC culture that is using them as fodder & “useful idiots” for lawlessness. This insane, immature, genocidal lunacy is a twisted psychodrama projected onto society through all Godless politically correct avenues will only end in genocide and in levels worse than evidenced in the 20th century. So sad.

Justin Simien needs to lighten up: pun intended, and be glad his peeps are either too ignorant or too polite to bring up the irony . Justins last name Simien is oh so very close to the word Simian which means MONKEY. Is this a real person? Either way its amusing. That type of person would squeal like a stuck pig if some college girl wrote Dear Black People letter.

Absolutely; at this point nobody is listening to them any more anyway. Both parties have agreed we’re better off with an imported Hispanic underclass instead of the perpetual whiners, and the transition is well underway.

Dear black people: why are you only 12% of the population, but commit 50% of the murders?

I do not for a second disbelieve the 50% number (hell, it may be higher), but that 12% number needs to be clarified. No doubt, almost all of those doing the murdering are male, and given a roughly 50%-50% breakdown in the sexes of the race, wouldn't that statement be better presented as: "6% of the population committing 50% of the murders?"

I don’t know that I did a particularly better job. I just added a couple of extra qualifiers to the mix.

We know that the “50% of the murders” rate is accurate from FBI crime stats. Whether they’re being committed by 3%, 4%, or 6% of the total population, that ratio is horrendous.
