I Don't Care What Blacks Think They're Entitled To
I’d venture a guess there’s hardly an adult alive today unfamiliar with the immortal words of Col. Nathan Jessup, “You can’t handle the truth!” (Jack Nicholson; A Few Good Men) But how many are familiar with Col. Jessup’s other great line of “I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to”?
Which brings me to my point. I don’t give a rat’s tail what black race-mongers and skin-color prostitutes think they are entitled to. They are entitled to the opportunity only, and being entitled to opportunity is not synonymous with “give it to me because I’m black.”
I somehow ended up on some black, commie, Nation of Islam mailing list. I typically immediately delete the email newsletter I receive from them each morning. I refuse to read lies and ignorance under the misguided premise of needing to know what they have to say. But this particular one had a headline that caught my eye.
The headline claimed, “In California, UCLA has more NCAA championships than black male freshmen.” It continued, “UCLA has 109 national championships but only 48 incoming black male freshmen out of 39,271 total students.” And it should come as no surprise that, at the end of the article, there is a directive: “Write a letter to UCLA Chancellor Gene Block asking for more black males on campus” and a phone number “To tell UCLA Chancellor Gene Block to get more black males on the UCLA campus.”[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]Perhaps (and I’m guessing it is) this is a defacto attempt to undermine California Proposition 209 that is law thanks to the yeoman work of Ward Connerly, a man I personally consider to be one of the most forward thinking men of the last 100 years, if not more. Prop. 209, i.e., the California Civil Rights Initiative, was placed on the ballot, passed with 54 percent of the vote, and signed into law in 1996. Prop. 209 amended California’s constitution to prohibit state government institutions from allowing race, ethnicity, and/or sex to be factors in the area of public education, public employment, and public contracting. Prop. 209, despite arguments to the contrary, leveled the playing field giving everyone a fair chance exactly as the Framers of the Constitution intended it, not giving some an unfair advantage because of skin-color and/or sex.
My condemnation is that these skin-color harlots and workers of iniquity are transpicuously shameless and profane paragons of inequality. Their definition of fairness is “give it to me because of the color of my skin, and we don’t give a damn who that unfairly hurts.” What is wrong with the mind of these black people? How have so many been convinced that based on the color of their skin alone they are due special consideration that eliminates any and all other qualifications and standards?
The demands are not made because blacks aren’t being accepted based on antediluvian injustices such as Jim Crow and separate but equal. No, the demands are made because a student looked around the campus and decided it was unjust to not have more blacks.
This is the mindset that relegates blacks to the bottom of the participation-in-modernity barrel. These people are not going to the families, the students in the schools, or other such places, and instilling the idea that the way to get into UCLA is if you are willing to work hard and study hard. They are not telling the pre-college age students that they should be able to afford, at the very least, a 15-year-old automobile and money for auto-insurance, gas and state inspection before they become a “baby’s daddy.” They aren’t telling high school students to excel at math, science, and chemistry. The demands being made to UCLA is parallel to telling the students to excel at unfair and unwarranted demands based on the color of their skin.
Think of the inculcated lack of self-esteem inherent in the idea that all a person has to do is show up and flash their arm, leg, neck, bare behind or whatever — but as long as it’s dark they get admitted. Where is the pride in accomplishment pursuant to that? What message does it send when those who are the right color but unqualified drop out or flunk out? What happens when those not qualified are unable to compete in the classroom? I’ll tell you what happens: we then witness the lowering of academic standards.
Another question that goes unaddressed is what about the students of color who attend UCLA based on their academic superiority? They worked hard to achieve the grades and SAT scores to attend the school, and they work hard to maintain good grades while there because they understand same are requisite if they are to successfully pursue their dreams and goals.
But those who demand entrance based on melanin content are much less likely to be any more concerned with study and grades in college than they were in high school. College isn’t a right; it is a privilege based on an individual’s effort to achieve the requisite requirements/standards to attend same.
I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the idea that blacks should be rewarded for skin color juxtaposed to work ethic and personal achievement. And if more of them had a higher sense of self-esteem they would feel the same way. They would realize they can do it themselves without prostituting their skin color to get it done.[adsanity id=8320 align=alignleft /]
