Are we all racist now?
The Telegraph ^ | May 29, 2014 | Allison Pearson

With impeccable timing, the children chose Mother’s Day lunch to tell their grandmother she was racist. And what vile abuse had my poor mother bandied about? She had asked her grandson if his choir sang Negro spirituals.

I don’t care about racism at all. I’m done.

My grandmother used to refer to blacks as “dark clouds”.

There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on n*ggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?

Minor point in this article, but the author’s children have not been taught any manners, nor has she done a mother’s duty to teach them enduring values separate from the public school indoctrination.

These kids would be grounded before they got half their brainwashed words out of their mouths if they were mine.

We have to lose the sense of shame when we are arbitrarily called "racist".

We have nothing to be ashamed about other than the fact that we don't fight back.

There’s only one race. The human race. But there are a bunch of cultures. And a lot of them have taken up residence in this country. And most of them suck.

i agree. I am beyond racism. No one can prove to me any differences based on “race”. Good and evil hearts, you have to check for what is inside.

Grounded,

My children would be running for their dear lives if they talked to grandma that way. I couldn’t even imagine one of them saying something like that, besides the fact that the rest would be stupefied if one of them tried it.

I teach music...and telling the History of The Blues is quite a minefield! LOL.

Here are some of the things that come up:

Field Hollerin’
Call and response
Slavery
The African (Pentatonic) Scale
Negro Spirituals
Juke Joints
New Orleans Brothel Culture
The TOBA (Theater and Booking Agency AKA “Tough On Black Asses” Circuit
Illiteracy and Bad Grammar
White Interaction with Black(Mostly Scots/Irish balladeering which provided song structure for the Blues)
Highway 61 and the Migration North
The Mississippi Delta
Segregation
Songs about sexual prowess based on race
Songs about killin’
Songs about GUNS
Songs about spousal abuse
Songs about promiscuity
Songs about VooDoo and “de debbil”
Songs about bein’ homeless
Songs about suicide
Bessie Smith Dying because she was not admitted to a “White” Hospital
Songs about drinking
Songs about drug abuse
Songs about depression
Songs about oppression.
Songs about repression
Songs about obsession
Billie Holiday dying from heroin
Songs about women with large butts
Songs about infidelity
Songs about women with big feet
Songs about death.

In 15 years, nobody has ever called this little ol’ Injun lady “raciss” for singin’ the Blues...and EVERYBODY wants to play ‘em.

I have taught “The Blues” at the second grade level all the way up to College level, and will continue to do so until I am sent to a reeducation camp.

I am totally non-prejudiced when it comes to race. I am, however, highly prejudiced when it comes to culture, and all cultures are FAR from equal!

“My grandmother used to refer to blacks as “dark clouds”..

Well your grandmother certainly was a visionairy since the “negro” population in the U.S. (not all but most) have cast a very dark cloud on THEMSELVES.

That is NOT racist but fact.

My grandmother, from the old country would say things like “That nice nigger girl brought over some fresh bread and I made tea...”

I knew enough at the age of 9 that was a derogatory term. I also knew enough not to tell my 90 year-old grandmother!

A wise man once said (maybe even a few times) that if you have enemies then you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

But, is there any accusation or verbal weapon more powerful for advancing the leftist agenda in the world?

Don’t let them get brainwashed in the first place.

Don’t turn them over to Satan’s minions for discipleship.

Five Children.

Wife homeschools, 30 years together.

No cable or open TV viewing, we watch everything together.

Lots of books and five acres of land to play on (shoot, arrow, paint ball, etc)

No problems yet, but the eleven year old is still at home.
