Quite possibly the most racist article you will ever read
Allen West ^ | December 29, 2014 | Col Allen West

Posted on 12/29/2014 3:23:26 PM PST by Islander7

Every now and then you come across an article that folks just need to read. This one written by Michael Smith entitled, “Confessions of a Public Defender” and originally posted at American Renaissance on May 9, 2014 is one of those articles.

It is a profound and deeply disturbing piece, which, as we end 2014, we all need to comprehend as we move towards the 50th anniversary of the Great Society initiatives of President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Smith articulates that which ails the black community — the real discussion we should be having on race, not that of victimhood and the further expansion of the welfare nanny-state.

He begins by saying, “I am a public defender in a large southern metropolitan area. Fewer than ten percent of the people in the area I serve are black but over 90 per cent of my clients are black. The remaining ten percent are mainly Hispanics but there are a few whites.”

“I have no explanation for why this is, but crime has racial patterns. Hispanics usually commit two kinds of crime: sexual assault on children and driving under the influence. Blacks commit many violent crimes but very few sex crimes. The handful of whites I see commit all kinds of crimes. In my many years as a public defender I have represented only three Asians, and one was half black.”

He presents his observations based on his personal experience with black defendants, and his words will no doubt inflame many:

My experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.

It will take you only 5 minutes to read this article — and I would bet you’ll read it again. Then ask yourself, is this something you hear Al Sharpton addressing? Or President Obama, Eric Holder, Jeh Johnson or Jesse Jackson?

I’m quite sure the progressive socialist left will criticize me for sharing this article – that’s just who they are – they hate the truth. But if there is a war to be fought, it is for the soul of the inner city and the black community. The facts and observations in this are not shocking to me. They are quite well known, but the manner in which the writer so eloquently presents them is quite commendable.

We cannot begin to “have a conversation about race” until we are willing to honestly address the facts.

As Smith says at the end, “I do know that it is wrong to deceive the public. Whatever solutions we seek should be based on the truth rather than what we would prefer was the truth.”

“My experience ...” consists of being closely associated with people who are suspects in a crime.

It is a self-fermenting problem. In the end, a fellow can’t be any better than what he acknowledges as master. If white people have done black people wrong, the worst wrong has been to bribe them.

(article):" ..the real discussion we should be having on race, not that of victimhood
and the further expansion of the welfare nanny-state."

Without "victimhood", Zero , Rivrunt Al Sharptongue, Bro. Jessie , and Charlie Rangel would just be faces in the crowd.
They all get their personal identity from 'victimhood'! .. and that all they proselitize!,
and are dependent on 'victimhood' for funds and donations.
Without 'victimhood', they'd all have to get a 'real job' .

Thank the “Great Society” for our feral parasite population.

A society can become great by means of God. Not by means of anything that governments can do. The “Great Society” was horrible theology. It is not charity. It is bribes, it is payoffs.

I don’t get the title. I read the article referenced by West, and it wasn’t racist in the slightest, unless statistically supportable facts are ‘racist’.

All I can say is if you replace “black” with “poor”, it's true. As it is, tho, yes, it is horribly racist. The writer generalizes, and uses (as he should, I guess, seeing as how he's writing from his own perspective...and I'm not sure if he's black or white or vanilla)his limited interaction with a sub-set of society, in situations that are guaranteed to bring out the worst in some people.

I am officially offended, and no, I am not black or Hispanic or Asian or anything else. I'm American.

Can this be right? We're failing those Asian kids, gotta get them with the program and immerse them in ebonics and progressive training! How else can we be inclusive!

I'd say that while Smith's point of view was based on the criminal element of black culture, Col. Allen West is proof it really isn't about the ability of the negro race.

The 'man' isn't holding him down, because he knows that 'man' is imaginary.
