I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it

If this story had not been posted in a legitimate newspaper, I would never have believed it.

I know that there is a certain racial hypocrisy that is allowed to pass without too much notice, but this goes beyond the pale.

This is the type of story that gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. 

From a strictly logical point of view it demonstrates that black Democrat "leaders" (a term used lightly) do not care at all about the advancement of their cause and their people, only the advancement of their party. 

But far worse is the social messages that are being cast about by these miscreants.  They are allow themselves to be used by a political party to such an extreme extent that they would be willing to destroy successful people of their own race.

The message they are spreading is if a black person is successful, but happens to disagree with a left-wing, liberal political philosophy, they are no longer a brother or sister, but an outcast who should be cursed at and mocked.

What does this say to black children growing up and watching?  What priority does it teach them?  Does it teach them that black people are logical, thinking people, who by the nature of being logical and thinking, will naturally disagree on things, or does it teach them that black people should be a mindless bloc that should mock and destroy the lives of anyone who thinks differently?

Does it teach them the value of being independent and successful, or does it teach them to be unoriginal and mediocre?

This is a profoundly sad episode, and one that I can only hope will inspire people to rise up against those who would control and manipulate the black population.

  • Oh, My God! This attitude is so prevalent that it's become commonplace. Bill Cosby and a few others are doing some righteous P.R. for blacks to get their independence back, maybe they will eventually make some headway.

    Slavery comes in many forms. How ironic that some blacks will salvishly follow a political party, even at the expense of their own success.

  • Any opinion formed about people of color, what they should or shouldn't do without culural diversity training is stated out of ignorance. It was sad when I learned that some white people just didn't know, only what they had been taught.

  • Tenaj, I have had such training. Are you saying you agree with the people who pelted the man with Oreo cookies?

  • Todd, if you had had such training it wouldn't have been unbelievable to you. I'm talking about the trainings where there are people of many races present in a forum that last for weeks and all manner of racial issues and differences are discussed. You and people of color go toe to toe about what you have been taught, and what you believe. Most people run from such forums like the plague. Understanding happens and misconceptions are dispeled.

    I wouldn't have wasted energy throwing orea cookies at an uncle tom, but I can understand WHY someone would.

  • No, I'm sorry but I strongly disagree. I definitely understand why those people threw cookies. Because they are very ignorant. The training I went through helped me to differentiate between cultural issues and issues of ignorance. I think you should probably enroll yourself, with no disrespect intended.

  • This topic would have made a hot forum.
    Perception is reality. If somethinig walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it's a duck.
    People who throw oreo cookies act ignorant, and keeping person down for the good of a political party is ignorant , ie; they are ignorant.
    I've had training as well, it revolves around "affirmative action" and it's very very scary. This training has made me hesitate to do business with certain people, because they might report me to the Governement if I don't put them on a pedestal and give them special favors not offered to anyone else.

  • I repeat, some people think they understand.

  • And some people think they have great wisdom.

  • It really doesn't matter what race anyone is. What matters is the realization that the only reason a person is where they are in life is because of the decisions they've made in the past, regardless of the financial, political, or any unfortunate social position, one may be at, in any particular moment in the course of an up-bringing. Period. Obviously there are exceptions to every rule, but they are extremley narrow in this case. Libraries are absolutley free. No excuses for the lack of money or status, bringing opportunity to select individuals. No excuses for the inacessability to Ivy League schools.

    Certain races who use the " victim" word 3 times or more in a 2 minute conversation, need to understand personal responsibility. Families who have perpetuated the virus of dependency on the government, through generations, do no good to better themselves, and their offspring. What happens then is a rebellion to life, such as crime, drug abuse, and ill behavior in general.

    Growing up in New York, from the early 70's and on, I've seen it all. The asians, mainly Korean, came to New York, with nothing, and worked 7 days a week to save enough money to open grocery stores, all over the place. They could have easily just complained from the moment they set foot in America, but they chose not to. Here goes that " choose " word again.

    On the other hand, I also watched as 15 year old girls walked around the streets with baby strollers. Not a good start.

    I'm no angel. I missed my calling in life as a professional musician, because of many stupid reasons, I made in the past. Now I'm paying the piper, without blame to anyone except me.
