Affirmative Action and the Lie of Economic Freedom
Two phrases most often associated with blacks are affirmative action and economic freedom. “Affirmative action” is understood to be a form of so-called “positive discrimination.” It’s the belief that discriminating against one group (read whites) is fair because it compensates those who are viewed as having been victims of discrimination (read blacks), whether real or perceived.
In my opinion, no single element has had a more adverse affect on these two groups of people than the race-based affirmative action program.
I argue there is no greater form of racism and bigotry than race-based “affirmative action.” It is promulgated by self-serving neo-Leninist liberals who believe themselves superior and who look upon blacks as being inferior. Their bigotry implies that blacks cannot succeed or accomplish anything worthwhile in life without their help.
Many blacks have ignorantly embraced race-based affirmative action as justified punishment of white people whom they view as their oppressors. But what these same blacks are blind to, is what race-based affirmative action has reduced them to.
Neo-Leninist liberals in their bigoted pomposity, have orchestrated a pogrom of such magnitude as too destroy the sense of purpose and the sense of true self-worth in the majority of blacks today. Neo-Leninist liberals have successfully blinded many blacks to the importance of their embracing modernity.[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]Before neo-Leninist liberals decided to foment despair, discord, and animosity for the purpose of prostituting immiseration and self-defeatism, blacks not only embraced modernity but they relentlessly pursued it.
At the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 87 percent of black homes were married two-parent homes and 40 percent of blacks were business owners. But 50 years after the signing of the Civil Rights Act, 49 years after the introduction of the Great Society initiatives, and 46 years after the introduction of race-based affirmative action, blacks disproportionately represent practically every undesirable category.
Unlike before bigoted neo-Leninist liberals convinced blacks that they couldn’t make it without their help, blacks today have the highest percentage of out-of-wedlock births and the highest percentage of abortions. They have the highest percentage of single parent homes and the highest percentage of children being raised by a family member other than their biological parents. Blacks comprise the highest percentage of incarcerants, the highest percentage of high school dropouts, the highest percentage of college dropouts, the highest percentage living in poverty, and the highest percentage of unemployed.
Before neo-Leninist liberals decided to punish all of white America for the evil that white Democrats had perpetrated, blacks took pride in positive accomplishment and the pursuit of modernity. Today, the majority of blacks have more disdain for modernity than an agoraphobic has for a sold-out football stadium.
But don’t tell blacks that because the majority are too blind, dumb, and ignorant to understand this. There was a time blacks embraced being Americans and the virtues of same; but that mindset has ultimately taken a backseat to the shrill invidious voices of those who preach the vitriolic heterodoxies of Marxists.
Blacks are plied and inculcated with the idea that the greatest contributor to their plight is the absence of economic freedom for them. But that too is an Erebusic lie from the pit of hell or more accurately stated it emanates from the mouths of neo-Leninist liberals.
Economic freedom is not the elevation of the masses to achieve wealth. Rather, it is the freedom of the individual to self-determine, through the opportunities available to all, to achieve a level of financial attainment based on self-initiative without government telling them what is possible or not possible based on governments’ definition of same.
In the final analysis, blacks are worse off today, morally and spiritually, than at any other time in their history in America. Over the past 50 years, as other Americans have progressed, blacks as an aggregate have regressed in a horrific way.
Maybe it is time blacks began thinking about embracing the message that has enabled all others to move into the present juxtaposed to the neo-Leninist liberal message of “You can’t make it without our help” that has relegated the minds and spirits of too many blacks to the bottom of life.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
