Excellent Commentary On Blacks Using Race As An Excuse To Be Jerks

Posted by Casey on July 5, 2009

Readers of Needs of the Many know I haven’t been on the racial guilt bandwagon … ever. If you’re an ass, you’re an ass. If you’re a success, you’re as success … that should be applauded.  I recently wrote a very popular post about how I reject the term “reverse racism.”

The simple fact is that a major portion of the black community uses their race to get away with mediocrity, and it is an insult to the great successes of the black community … which are numerous. It’s also in direct contradiction to what Dr. King advocated.  Bill Cosby, Walter Williams, William Owens, and Juan Williams are just a few of the prominent members of the black community trying to point out this nonsense to their peers while at the same time trying to get black people to live up to their true potential.

I recently ran across a tremendous article illustrating a social worker’s ordeal in working with a black woman who was a victim simply because she was black. Whether you read it now or later … read it.

Modern blacks aren’t victims of society. In most cases modern whites are … as a matter of policy no less. That doesn’t mean that blacks, and other minorities, don’t face racism in their lives. However, whites experience racism as well. Often it is government instituted racism.  Any member of any race will likely face racism towards their race at some point in life.  All occurrences should be shunned equally.  Just like we should all be treated equally … at least based on our race.

From affirmative action, school scholarships, race based grant programs, hypocritical TV standards … to societal reaction to comedians, radio and TV commentary, and test scores. All, and much more, are designed to create a false sense of victimhood for blacks, and other minorities, when it actually creates victims of whites. Whites are discriminated against in all of the above examples where blacks hold a distinct advantage.  Where’s the discussion of white oppression?

Over the past several years we’ve had numerous examples of racism against whites that were not treated as such. Remember Duke Lacrosse, the Christian-Newsom Murders, hypocrisy of white scholarships, most recently the white firemen scandel (though one was latino).  In that last case, the latino firefighter was virtually ignored by the MSM, and therefore was victimized twice.  Even though he is a minority, he was not treated as such like the black firefighters.  Explain that one to me.

A million books can be written about this subject, and they have, but we still never get to the conclusions we desperately need to get to.  Truth be told we can summarize this topic in a few short paragraphs, but some of us harbor guilt for things we have no reason to feel guilt for.  So we take pages to explain a simple concept (like I’m doing now), because if we don’t we’ll be silenced as racists.  Which I’ll be accused of anyway.

The argument that whites ‘owe’ blacks holds no water, and is quite possibly the most ignorant and retarded argument ever created by man.  So I won’t even dignify it with a response.  Just know that if you think that way … you are a waste of human life.

When it comes to guilty white people arguing that blacks are disadvantaged, the argument that carries the most weight in a debate (that I’ve seen anyway) is that blacks are dumber because of how white people bread them during slavery.  That’s also why blacks are so athletic … the argument states.  According to this theory, white slave owners bread blacks to be physically strong to work the fields, but dumb to keep them oppressed.  Therefore the current black population reflects that breeding.

That’s right everyone, in an effort for whites to justify providing supposed disadvantaged blacks with special programs and opportunities is based on the premise that blacks are stupid but athletic, and whites made them that way during slavery.

Are you ready for the shocker?  Blacks agree!  Michelle Obama even hinted at it leading up to the election.  This is the basis for the “black oppression” so many  proclaim.  We aren’t good enough to get the grades others get.  We aren’t good enough to get into college on our own merit.  We aren’t good enough to get promoted.  The only thing we are good at is sports.  You can summarize all arguments by the Al Sharpton lot with this theory that white people made you dumb.  Therefore they owe you something, and you need extra help to get ahead.

BLATANT NONSENSE!

How utterly insulting this rhetoric is.  To actually believe you are stupid, and need help to get ahead is crazy.  Everyone starts off with the same potential to succeed.  All that separates us is the desire, drive, and effort to get their.

The Chinese, Jews, Irish, Native Americans, Russians, Polish, Japanese, and many more were all oppressed at some point in this country.  The worst treatment was laid upon the Chinese.  Most historians agree their treatment was most harsh in America’s history … including treatment of black slaves.  Don’t forget about the white slavery in early America as well.  That actually predates the African slave trade.

Why does any of that matter?  Of all the oppressed people in America’s history, only one race continues to use it as political ammunition.  Everyone else has put it behind them, moved on, and have been successful.  Isn’t it time for the self-proclaimed oppressed portion of the black population do the same?  The only group of people oppressing the black population is the black population themselves.

I have easy proof of this to help motivate them.  Look at all the great successful people who happen to be black.  They aren’t dumber than everyone because of some sinister white breeding program during slavery.  Nor were they the vicitim of an overbearing amount of racism that forbids blacks to succeed.  Many have succeeded in spite of their poor start in life, and they have only their great work ethic to thank.  They fought and put forth tremendous effort to get ahead … just like everyone else.  They should not be applauded for their success because they are black, but because they are a success.

One thing I’ve found astounding over the years is how many angry young black people I find that claim they can’t succeed because of oppression.  I always discover that they haven’t succeeded not because of oppression, but because they’ve never tried.  They’ve never tried because they believe they’re the victim right out of the gate.  They justify their never attempting to succeed because there is no change of whitey letting them.  How sad that they see successful blacks as an anomaly when there are so many of them.

    I’d add Thomas Sowell and Ward Connerly to your list of voices that speak to traditional black ideals of self-reliance. In fact, Sowell is so impressive not only would I vote for the man if he ran for the presidency, I’d volunteer for his campaign.

      Good point. I only wish people would realize how many great leaders in the black community exist. Instead of just focusing on two idiots in Jackson and Sharpton.

    If you’d like to know how it starts, read this rather long article written by a teacher

  3. “One thing I’ve found astounding over the years is how many angry young black people I find that claim they can’t succeed because of oppression”.

    I worked for several years in a school system run by blacks for blacks in a city where every department from Mayor and police chief on down is run by blacks for blacks. The city, New Orleans is an abysmal place. The oppression cannot be blamced on white opressors but they do blame whites.

    Can you back up any of these claims you’ve made with any sort of cite or statistic:
    – “The worst treatment was laid upon the Chinese. Most historians agree their treatment was most harsh in America’s history … including treatment of black slaves. ”
    – “Modern blacks aren’t victims of society. In most cases modern whites are … as a matter of policy no less. ”
    – “One thing I’ve found astounding over the years is how many angry young black people I find that claim they can’t succeed because of oppression. I always discover that they haven’t succeeded not because of oppression, but because they’ve never tried.” (Oh wait you can’t, you’re using personal anecdotes instead of actual research)
    – “When it comes to guilty white people arguing that blacks are disadvantaged, the argument that carries the most weight in a debate (that I’ve seen anyway) is that blacks are dumber because of how white people bread them during slavery. That’s also why blacks are so athletic … the argument states. According to this theory, white slave owners bread blacks to be physically strong to work the fields, but dumb to keep them oppressed. Therefore the current black population reflects that breeding.”

    I’d especially like to hear your cite for the last one because I’ve never, ever, EVER heard anything like that except from white nationalists.

    Chinese people were never part of institutionalized slavery in this country. If you can tell one white person’s ethnic heritage just by looking at him, you’ve got a unique talent apparently. However, its hard to hide you’re black in this country and ever since slavery was abolished there were still laws in place to keep black people from full equality – Jim Crow laws, inheritance laws – hell they were being killed and strung up in trees for exercising their right to vote not 40 years ago in the South! And you’re going to feed this line of utter b.s. that there’s nothing holding them back except that they’re lazy? Your opinion is based on completely false personal prejudices and not one single bit of fact and its pathetic.

      The Chinese were a part of institutionalized slavery, and a simple Google search will answer all of your questions. I’m not saying they were slaves longer, but their treatment was considered more harsh in most history books. I encourage everyone to research their treatment, and the treatment of white slaves in this country as well. All slaves were susceptible to mistreatment and murder, but the Chinese weren’t seen as valuable by their owners. Blacks were seen as a valuable asset that was often well taken care of. The Jim Crow laws and murders in the south are a whole other topic for future discussion. I’m just glad my party, the Republican Party, opposed those laws.

      Nothing written is BS, you just haven’t done any research. I’ve said nothing in this post that hasn’t been said by Cosby, Owens, Williams and others. You’d be good to listen to what they say about their own community.

      I can’t provide you with sources for the white guilt argument, but I’m sure someone has written it down somewhere. I hear it on a regular basis from whites with whom I have this discussion.

      Seriously, do some research outside of Sharpton and Jackson.

    Oh Please,

    Are you implying that all white people look alike? How retro.

    And, if you read the article more closely, the author does not suggest in any way that blacks are “lazy”. He argues that they are psychologically conditioned to believe that the game is still rigged against them and therefore decline to play at all. The “lazy” bit is your own distorted inference of his words.

      He argues that MANY are psychologically conditioned to believe that the game is still rigged against them and therefore decline to play at all.

        Thanks Blutarski,

        Frankly I’m surprised I’ve only received one such comment on this post like that.

        The sad part is that Michelle Obama herself said it during the campaign. Guess she was peddling BS also.
