It's Time To End Double Standard

It’s Time To End Double Standard

Ok, I’ve had it. I’m ticked and I don’t give a rat’s tail who likes it or not, and I couldn’t care less what I’m called. It’s about time people–who are thinking exactly what I’m about to say–stop wringing their hands and whining, and step up to the plate while we still can. What am I talking about? I’m glad you asked.

I’m talking about the duplicitous, harmful, double standards for black thuggery. I’m talking about the media and politicians covering up and ignoring crimes based on color. There are protected classes for everyone and everything except civility and propriety, and we have got to change this practice.

It took two weeks for The Virginia Pilot newspaper in Norfolk, VA., to report that a mob of black youths (numbering, by some accounts, near 100 persons) had attacked and beaten two of the paper’s very own employees. Reports are that the couple was on their way home from a theater show, stopped for a light, when a gang of black hoodlums attacked their vehicle. When the driver got out of the vehicle it resulted in both him and the woman with him being beaten. Miraculously the injuries were not life threatening, but that made them no less traumatic.

Rather than report the incident accurately with journalistic integrity, The Virginia Pilot chose instead to ignore it for two weeks. The police reported the mob attack as a simple assault, and it has been reported that the police did not even take names of witnesses. Someone tweeted that they didn’t feel bad for the “white” man who was beaten, they indicated laughter and tweeted “do it for Trayvon.” So is that the memorial that Martin’s family and friends want for him? Is this the peaceful handling of things that Martin’s mother has called for or is it the “assault white people in Trayvon’s memory” that the New Black Panther Party has promoted?”

Here’s the real problem, and the source of my outrage: The media, et al, will only get involved if the assault is politically correct enough. If blacks are walking around so angry that they are unable to control themselves and are at any moment on the verge of brutally assaulting others, then, I say put those so inclined on a reservation, build a fence around them and name it Thug Town. Appoint indicted, former Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick, as mayor and make Malik Zulu Shabazz, of the New Black Panther Party, the police commissioner.

My sardonic humor notwithstanding, America cannot be the inclusive and cohesive nation it is capable of being when the media and government engage in a color-coded, politically correct system of law enforcement. Those of us who support civility and propriety must stand up and demand an end to the morally opprobrious double standard.

By not standing up, we are encouraging supremacist groups to organize and recruit. And we are giving license to malicious and malevolent blacks to engage in violent behavior, for whatever reasons they choose, if for any reason at all. We must end this. We cannot wait for the media or politicians. Obama hasn’t said a word about this incident. He hasn’t said these thugs look like his children. Holder isn’t sending Justice Department teams to investigate. Is it Obama and Holder’s opinion that white people do not have civil rights?


We must demand that politicians understand we take their silence and politically correct, duplicitous, double standards as an abdication of their Constitutional responsibility to uphold justice and liberty for all. We should flood The Virginia Pilot with tens of thousands of letters demanding they fire the editors responsible for not reporting this incident. We should flood both the police department and District Attorney’s Office demanding investigations into why this assault was handled as it was. We should flood the offices of the State Representatives and Congressional Representatives demanding to know why they are silent on this.

In another week or so, I will be making a special announcement, but for now suffice it to say, that I am tired of color-coded double standards that give license to black thuggery. I’m tired of a complicit and compliant media that, in most instances, refuses to acknowledge the color of a perpetrator if they are black and have assaulted a white person.

When even Jesse Jackson says he is relieved when he turns around and sees it is a white person who is walking up behind him, when he is on the street alone at night–it’s time for us to address things. I’ve had it, and if you are as outraged and tired as I am of criminal perpetrators being reported differently and treated differently–based on political correctness–then it is time for you to join me in making our voices heard. If we do not make our voices heard nothing will change, because they will have no incentive for change. It is up to those who share my feelings, and who understand why it is the right thing to do, to lock hands and take a stand.

    I do trust all the ideas you have offered on your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for novices. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    bright knight: the thing we must do is stop color coding the truth…conservatism has at its foundation truth…truth does not have a gender or color…and we must stop applying same to it…the other and this is important…I am not an ideologue…I do not go along w/ things just because the repub hierarchy tells me to…and I am unwilling to turn a blind eye to things they do I know is wrong…

    This is real truth, I applaud you for being brave enough to speak the truth because we all know it isnt popular any more to deal in facts , truths and honesty.
    There will never be any equality in this world if we arent all able to speak the truth, report the truth in facts and not media hype. We must hear one another and do the right things for the right reasons. The laws of the universe apply whether the news allows it or covers it up. There is always a reaction to an action and there is always accountability no matter how hard one might fight it , there will be an accounting for our actions whether we like it or not.
    God Bless you for your honesty.

    This is an in-depth listing of the links to the e-articles posted by The Virginian-Pilot in their ardent attempt to cast a smoke-screen over this incident in hopes that it would just go away. Talk about head-in-the-sand journalism!

    The Virginian-Pilot newspaper based in Norfolk, Virginia has really been trying to bury this Norfolk beating incident. I have never seen a newspaper go so far out of its way to suppress the truth and be so biased and non-objective!

    Here are several links written by the Pilot since May 1st about this incident — OVER TWO WEEKS AFTER IT OCCURED! This is procrastination in the reporting of the facts at its most shameful degree! Pay close attention to the percentage of readers’ comments in each linked article who slam The Virginian-Pilot for their obvious lack of integrity in reporting. Perhaps this is why they (The Pilot) kept on publishing one new article after another on this topic — to suppress and bury the previous article along with the accompanying hundreds of disgruntled readers’ comments. Please broadcast and/or forward this post to anyone who seeks justice and fair play in the reporting of ALL stories.

    NOTE: This first link is the original UNBIASED article on this incident. The remaining links is the Virginian-Pilot backpedaling with its succession of johnny-come-lately ‘smoke-screen’ articles.

    This is a real eye-opener and a well-hidden incident:

    I hadn’t heard about this. How awful for this couple.

    I honestly don’t know how much more my heart can take with all of this garbage. This administration scares me so much.

    I watched GBTV last week and heard how the government sees what we type in our emails, the blogs we read, etc. I’m afraid to even put down how I truly feel about this administration.

    Thank you for your comment, Mychal. Sure wish there were more politicians who felt the way you do. God bless you, sir.

    bright night: Here’s a news flash…romney is not going to win w/ or w/out my support…that said we need congress and we need to replace as many rinos in the process…we need representatives that will hold his feet to the fire for us…

    Mychal, I agree in regard to the Congress and the fact, that we need to replace as many Rinos as possible – whoever will win the W.H.. But I still think, that Obama will give a rats ass about the Congress, in the case he gets re-elected.

    If it comes to your news flash: although I know, that it’s tight and so many people just don’t get it, I still hope that we can get the Divider in Chief out of office. I just don’t want to think about what will happen with America if this guy gets a 2nd term. So I finally found a point I don’t agree with you

    don: not a chance…that would mean I would have to support him…

    Mychal, I’m not a fan of Romney either, but what is the alternative? To get Obama out, we (unfortunately) must support Romney (I have headache, but no other choice). A third candidate will not work, because this would give Obama a second term, and that’s something we cannot afford (think about the Supreme Court: Obama would put more hardcore Liberals in…). Even a very conservative Congress wouldn’t help us because Obama would govern his way and push his agenda with Presidential Executive Orders and he would sneak around the Congress as he did with Crap and Fake, formerly known as Cap and Trade. We need to get him out and that means Romney in and then we must go from there. Step by step…

    Mychal, you are absolutely right, that color of the skin doesn’t count. I don’t care if somebody is a white, black, red or a yellow person or a$$hole (lol). I just wanted to say, that long, long time ago most of the black people were not on the plantation of the democrats, but had conservative values. Please note: I wrote CONSERVATIVE, not republican. I’m first conservative, then leaning(!) to the republicans (I’m more a politically incorrect constitutional libertarian conservative with common sense). I also don’t want to see the mentioned folks in Washington, just because they have a “R” behind their names, but because they stand for values and common sense (although I might not agree in every issue) and I’m sure that they (incl yourself) would make a big difference in DC, the change we need. I just want “my” America back – I haven’t left Europe to get here in the same mess, to see my America be transformed in a copy of Europe. America still can draw a line in the sand, we can turn the ship – Europe however is lost…

      bright night: I agree…attempting to force the failed euro-socialist policies of europe here is justification for imprisonment by my reasoning…

    @ Keith (May 3, 2012 at 7:42 pm)
    Mychal, your commentary proves over and over again that being conservative and black need not be an oxymoron. Keep pressing on, my brother!

    Although you’re right, I want to clarify, that actually being black and conservative are the roots. Most people forgot this and for whatever reason this shifted from the conservative side to the liberals. I hope that more black folks wake up and find their way back to their political roots. There are some, who can be the leader of such a movement, such as Mychal, Allen West, Star Parker, Thomas Sowell, Herman Cain and Thousands I didn’t list respectively I even don’t know yet by name – btw: these are all folks, I would love to see in some kind of office in Washington to get this country back on track.
