Barack said we need to have a conversation about race in America.
But his idea of a “conversation” is just to repeat the same old litany that white Americans have been getting harangued with for the past forty years.
BTDT. Didn’t even get a crummy t-shirt.
Guess what, Barry … “conversations” are supposed to be two-way.
White America should be heard … not just lectured to.
For example, we would like to point that the United States of America has been the best country on earth for black folks.
We would also like to point out that nowhere on earth have any people done more to improve the lives of People of Color than have American People of Pallor.
White America is not responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for black Americans is seven times that of white Americans.
Nor is it white America’s fault that the black illegitimacy rate has hit 70 percent or that their high school dropout rate in some cities has reached 50 percent.
Those things are failings of the black community, most specifically the black men who have been content to be gangsters and sperm donors, rather than husbands and fathers.
When are People of Color going to quit blaming People of Pallor for all their problems and buckle down to finding solutions for those problems?
We’ve all heard ad nauseam about white-on-black crimes, including those like Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena that ALL turned out to be hoaxes.
When are we going to hear about the epidemic of black-on-white crimes?
- White criminals choose black victims only 3 percent of the time.
- Black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time.
When you get to specific crimes, the difference is far worse.
- Black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than white-on-black rapes.
- In the first years of this decade, black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common as white-on-black robberies.
When are liberals going to get real about the fact that “racism” means “hatred or intolerance of another because of their RACE” not “white hatred for blacks”?
When are they going to remember that Martin Luther King, Jr.’s great dream was that his children would be judged by the content of the CHARACTER?
Mr. President, white America would really like to have a CONVERSATION with you on race, because truth be told, we’re pretty damn sick of being the ones who are persecuted for the color of our skin.
