A visitor from another galaxy might be puzzled as to why so many Americans are so hung up on the issue of skin color. Given that slavery in the United States was abolished more than 150 years ago, you’d think that the subject would have faded into the marred pages of human history by now. So why is talk of racism still alive and well?
I believe the reason it’s so difficult for so many people to let go of the racism narrative is because it’s taken on a life of its own. But, contrary to what the radical left would like us to believe, most Americans moved beyond racism decades ago. Even the Jim Crow laws that were so ferociously promoted and protected by white Southern Democrats are but a distant, unpleasant memory.
Nevertheless, there still exists a large number of nefarious people who refuse to let the subject die, because they have found, to their delight, that they can profit handsomely by nurturing the idea that racism is at the heart of most of our nation’s problems. It is, of course, a totally false narrative, but one that is effectively used to prey upon those who live lives of noisy desperation.
Racism is relentlessly pushed to the forefront by race hustlers in their quest for ever more power and money, and shamelessly invoked by left-wing politicians as one of an array of nasty tools to help them stay in power. To be sure, it takes a person who is abjectly ignorant or hopelessly immoral to promote such a hoax, and, unfortunately, America has plenty of both.
The pretense of the promoters of racism is that they are protectors of helpless black folks who continue to be victimized by millions of whites who want to see them permanently oppressed. The safe haven the Dirty Dems offer them is the federal government’s welfare plantation, which is really a welfare prison.
Ironically, the election of America’s first (half) black president gave new life to the false claims of racism in America, which is a bit nutty considering the fact that his election was made possible by the votes of white Americans. But let me make it clear that I don’t for a second believe Barack Obama is particularly hung up on race, which is probably why blacks have ended up being so much worse off since his rise to power.
The truth be known, Obama has zero interest in helping blacks — or anyone else, for that matter. He is a totally committed ideologue who sincerely believes, in his angry, twisted mind, that the destruction of American exceptionalism is a noble undertaking.
And toward that end, he and his fellow American haters have skillfully used the false race narrative, especially to undermine anyone who opposes his policies. From whence comes the absurd claim that any resistance to his anti-American actions are a result of white people’s hatred of him because of his skin color.
Again, given the fact that he was elected not once, but twice, by a white-majority population, it’s an absurd claim, but the radical left continues to use it for one reason and one reason only: It works! So even though millions of people of all colors are experiencing racism fatigue, there is far too much profit in the exploitation of white guilt for the phony race card to go away anytime soon.
That’s right, the truth is that those who profit from racism do not want racial discord to die. They realize that because millions of Americans (both black and white) have no clue that they are being played for suckers, the so-called race card can be repeatedly dealt with predictable results.
We’ve seen this over and over again in recent years. Notwithstanding the adjudicated facts, the false Travon Martin narrative, the outrageous “Hands up, don’t shoot” lie in Ferguson, and the nasty fiction created by the perennially angry Marilyn Moseby about the Baltimore police are still believed by millions of information-challenged people.
As Joseph Goebbels infamously boasted, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” Obama’s incredible success (in fundamentally changing the United States of America) is based on this simple tactic, as is his campaign for a third term (through his loathsome, blackmailed puppet, Hillary the Horrible).
So, is America’s future hopeless? It depends how far into the future you’re talking about. You certainly can’t fundamentally transform an upside-down culture into a civilized society overnight, but you do have the power of choice when it comes to transforming yourself into a more knowledgeable human being who refuses to accept lying and criminality in government as the status quo.
If enough people made a sincere effort to increase their own knowledge base, perhaps America could begin a slow — very slow — U-turn and eventually start moving in the direction of a more perfect union. By “a more perfect union,” I’m talking about a more enlightened and civilized America, one in which tyranny is reviled and liberty is extolled by a large majority of the populace.
I realize that right now a more civilized America sounds like a far-off fantasy, but perhaps real change at the top of the governmental food chain would give us all a bit more confidence that major, positive change is possible within a few generations. After all, you have to begin somewhere, so why not start by doing everything within your power to help defeat the Washington Crime Syndicate in November — from top to bottom.
