Civil Rights or Civil Preferences, equality or superiority?
Virtually every time there is a high profile (meaning on national TV) you can find Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton upfront and center yelling about racism and bigotry. But if the issue turns south of them, like in Decatur Illinois in 1999 for Jesse Jackson , he fades away as if he was never there – and people wish he hadn’t been there.
The attack on George Zimmerman was a calculated attack that was both racist and an example of bigotry – towards hispanics. It’s was about blacks being entitled to civil preference over all other racial groups, but especially hispanics who are the single largest growing racial group in America and will easily replace blacks when the issue of race comes up.
Think about it, when it’s about race, what group do you think of? What faces do you see on the cameras? Think about the power – and money – that means. And now imagine you’re black and those faces are brown. Doesn’t feel too good does it?
This isn’t a new issue, it’s been going on since the 60’s. A riot would start and blacks would go after minority owned, any minority, and trash those businesses. In the race riots of the late 60’s I saw blacks went after hispanics, not whites.
George Zimmerman (a hispanic) was a proxy, as much for his race as his good deeds
• George Zimmerman voted and campaigned for Obama.
• George Zimmerman and his black friend opened an insurance company in Florida.
• George Zimmerman has black family members. Some of George’s black family members
lived with him, at some point.
• George Zimmerman launched a campaign to help a homeless black man who was beaten up
by a white kid.
• George dated and took a black girl to the prom.
• George Zimmerman also mentored young black males.
People like Jackson and Sharpton can’t put up with people like Zimmerman, it upsets their whole applecart of hate and moral superiority. Of their desire to be “king of the hill” by trading on stereotypes and guilt. Something happens to a black and the other person isn’t a black, you know who Jackson will blame without even a cursory review of the facts. And he makes YOU feel guilty so you throw logic and justice out the window and agree with him – and you give him money.
If Zimmerman had been black and Trayvon Martin not, based on the same facts, Jackson would’ve been seeking “justice” for Zimmerman.
Booker T. Washington, wrote: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Charlatans, yes. Snake oil salesman, yes. They prey of people’s guilt and innocence for their own ends and make all the good people that share their race look bad and undermine any attempt or movement towards joining the ultimate race – the human race.
I, for one, do not believe in guilt. I believe in responsibility. I had no part in enslaving or perpetuating the status of blacks. If I had ancestors that did, which I possibly did since my mother’s side of the family has be here since the early 1700’s, I accept no guilt for their actions. Each person is their own master. But as I say, I believe in responsibility and that blacks deserve a boost up to overcome the past. But I will not be a victim of highway robbery of Jackson so he can live an underserved better life then other blacks. Rather he should be a fountain onto his people rather then a sponge.
Blacks have been victimized in this country by just about everyone, especially including the north before and after the Civil War. They were used by the northern industrialists to justify the civil war. Then after the civil war, the ones that fled north, were used as cheap labor, not much better then slaves, in northern factories.
The truth about slavery in the south is it was obsolete by 1860 because of the industrial age starting to automate America. Slaves were too expensive just to have, feed and house when there were machines that could work faster and cheaper. The south was looking for a way out, and if the north hadn’t been such moral snobs, slavery would’ve ended on peaceful terms. Instead the northern industrialists, afraid of the south being a rival for manufactured goods, manufactured a war that set the south back three generations.
Blacks have every right to seek redress and that redress has been granted and has worked. There is a flourishing middle and upper class of blacks in every field. But that hurts people like Jackson and Sharpton because there is no guilt to trade on, no way to thrust themselves to king of the hill.
They don’t want civil rights, they want civil preference for blacks – and no group has that right. It is civil rights for everyone all the time or there is none for anyone, ever.
So get your head out of the sand and look around, form your own opinions, or you’ll be the next group of slaves turning your wages over to people that don’t deserve them and there will never be any emancipation – greed never lets go. Freedom is won, not a right, and the fight never ends
