If Congressional Black Caucus Cared About Blacks They Would Thank President Trump
There are two things we need keep in mind in the midst of this increasingly hostile zeitgeist of “racial” stupidity. The first is, we must forget about color. Color is an inanimate, organic veneer. Color cannot walk, talk or read a book, but the person encased underneath it can – ergo, the only salient issue is the character of the person. The other is that, while we’re hung up on color, those who use same as currency are busy making gain – always to America’s disadvantage.
The madness that continues to surface among certain blacks is as popular as the leisure suit once was; but, it’s as rational as it would be fashionable to wear a polyester leisure suit to a black tie gala at the White House. It is a madness that claims the white boogeyman is out to get the black man and all things negative in the life of blacks including rain on their freshly washed car, is the white man’s fault.
In the past Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) blamed black unemployment on racism. Their solution to remedy black unemployment wasn’t to demand Obama end his draconian employment killing practices. Their solution was to blame the Tea Party and declare war on white America. (See: Alert: Congressional Black Caucus Obamathugs Call For Race War To Keep Obama In Power; Sher Zieve; 9/1/2011)
Today the CBC has declared war on President Trump’s supporters. The unambiguous message being that all of his supporters are white.
It is nothing less than criminally despiteous for Waters and the CBC to ignore the fact blacks, the people they supposedly care so much about, are doing massively better under President Trump’s leadership than under Obama’s failed tenure. In fact, under President Trump the standard of living based on employment and income is at historic highs.
Karen Bass, D-CA chairwoman of the CBC, set a new land speed record for slithering to the cameras to vilify President Trump when he dared call for a “federal investigation” because charges were suspiciously dropped against Jussie Smollett. (See: CBC Blasts Trump’s Silence On White Nationalism Ignores Its Own Complicity In Rise Of Anti-Semitism; Stacey Matthews; 3/31/2019) An investigation, which found Smollett lied and staged a hate crime. A crime for which the City of Chicago is still trying to collect reimbursement of municipal resources spent investigating the false attack.
Not surprisingly, she saw nothing wrong with the fact that Obama’s Justice Department headed by Eric Holder, insisted on federal investigations the moment a white police officer was involved with a black criminal.
They were mute when New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz told a crowd of blacks in Harlem to “prepare for war against [white] America.” Telling them to “gird up their loins” it was a “war against capitalist bloodsucker America.” Predictably, his audience applauded and cheered. (For more on Shabazz also see: https://mtmotorstables.blogspot.com/2011/09/malik-zulu-shabazz.html) I should mention if a white person called Shabazz a “Zulu” they would be called racist, sarcasm intended.
Obama held Shabazz in such high esteem, that he refused to prosecute him after he and other members of the New Black Panther Party, dressed in black military type uniforms with night sticks intimidated whites at Philadelphia election polls in 2008.
What those applauding the violent bipolar and schizophrenic screeds fail to realize is, that outside of government housing – it is capitalism that’s providing people, blacks included, with places to live. It is capitalism that is providing blacks with the vehicles they drive and the public transportation they ride. It is capitalism that provides the stores, pharmacies, service stations and restaurants Shabazz et al frequent. It is capitalism that provides the books and computers that are put to such poor use by many blacks in public school systems.
It is capitalism that enables blacks who can barely speak English as a first language and who have the educational skills of a junior high school student to become multi-millionaires because they excel at playing with a ball or rapping. It is capitalism that provides the bling “his peeps” wear, and tangential to that point, it is capitalism that keeps Oprah a billionaire. Let me not omit that it is capitalism that keeps Colin Kaepernick’s pockets full of cash while he protests America as racist. And it is capitalism that financially rewards Lebron James for not realizing how ignorant he is.
The CBC’s pointillistic attempt to connect whites and capitalism to the ills of blacks should be seen for what it is – an anemic attempt to misplace blame. What Shabazz, the CBC, Maxine Waters and all others who support and encourage such a degenerate self-limiting mentality should admit is that they aren’t the solution – they are the problem.
Still, to be truthful, there is one area of American capitalism that has contributed massively to the destruction of blacks. Against all sanity it’s the very so-called services that blacks like Obama, Waters and the CBC are committed to keeping readily available in predominantly black neighborhoods. I’m talking about Planned Parenthood and their death mills. Planned Parenthood has made billions of dollars through the systematic extermination of blacks – but the CBC and company don’t view that as bad.
In combatting abortion President Trump is protecting the future of population in a way Obama and the CBC never have.
President Trump isn’t encouraging blacks to drop out of school. His supporters aren’t encouraging blacks to lead lifestyles that are destructive to their families and themselves individually. President Trump’s “white” supporters the CBC are calling racist aren’t the ones encouraging blacks to look to the government before they look to self.
It’s time blacks do away with the “it’s because I’m black” mentality. It’s not because you’re black – it’s because blaming whites is easier than admitting that the melanin-based and color-coded programs have failed mightily. Despite all best efforts many blacks have embraced failure and mediocrity rather than opportunity.
It is time to question the so-called black leadership pursuant to: why they remain umbilically connected to the party that fought to retain slavery, turned the Ku Klux Klan into their domestic terrorist organization, instituted and codified Jim Crow, fought to keep them in segregated schools, refused to support civil rights for them for 124 uninterrupted years, refused to support the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act?
