RACE AND POLITICS IN AMERICA: A TALE OF TWO LIES


fredschwartz1

I read this a few minutes ago at Views From The Right Side:

If you worked as hard at building a life as you did at making excuses every single one of you would be rich beyond your dreams.

I’ve spent a few minutes thinking about this sipping on a nice single malt Scotch and I thought about my own life. Where such a statement can come from has to be a place where facts can only support a tribe or group’s beliefs. There has been suffering in the past decade among the white American middle class unlike anything that had been seen in many generations. In fact, the past Great Recession was the most harmful economic event since the Great Depression for white Americans of all ages. Much like the spike in lynching that was seen between 1933 and 1937, bigoted vitriol from white conservatives that was nearly unheard of during the Bush years has spiked since the election of Barack Obama.

So about those two lies. The first is that conservatives would have you believe that they are a part of a monolithic group that works hard, never does anything wrong and harbors no ill will toward those that think, look, love or believe differently from them. The second lie is that all minority people in the United States are responsible for the bad actions of the worst elements of their demographic.

I’m a Jew but I don’t expect to be held responsible for everything horrible a Jew does. I’m sure blacks and Latinos feel the same way when the vast majority of those people are trying to do well for themselves and their families. The same goes for those who tribally identify themselves as white. Blaming black crime in urban areas for all the ills of the nation would be like blaming Bernie Madoff’s crimes for the failure of the Dallas Cowboys this season. But in this modern age of politics in America it seems that certain people get to make their own versions of reality while the vast majority can simply shake their heads until voting day.

Pax Terra!

    DOJ statistics prove you to be full of SHIITE

  2. neocon01 Says:

    Using figures for the 2013 racial mix of the population–62.2 percent white, 17.1 percent Hispanic, 13.2 percent black–we can calculate the average likelihood of a person of each race attacking the other. A black is 27 times more likely to attack a white and 8 times more likely to attack a Hispanic than the other way around. A Hispanic is eight times more likely to attack a white than vice versa.

    We can also calculate how often criminals of each group choose victims of other races. As indicated below, when whites commit violence they choose fellow whites as victims 82.4 percent of the time, and almost never attack blacks. Blacks attack whites almost as often as they attack blacks, and Hispanics attack whites more often than they attack any other group, including their own.

    77% white ~225 million
    13% black ~40 million

    Whites committed 2,755 murders in 2013.
    Blacks committed 2,698 murder in 2013.

    So the black population of 13%(~40 million) commits almost as many murders as the white 77%(~225 million) of the population. That’s a 5-to-1 ratio.

    My My My…….

    A newly released religious ruling, or fatwa, handed down by the ISIL Committee of Research and Fatwas stipulates in great detail the sexual conduct of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) slave owners toward their infidel female captives.

    I certainly hope none of these slaves are BLACK!! maybe THATS why they keep them covered…Ohhhh the IRONY!!!
