WND Weekly: Don't blame whites – it's the CBC
Following is a comment I made to a person on my blog:
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 our disadvantage.
There is a madness surfacing among certain blacks that is as popular as the leisure suit once was, but it’s as fashionable today as wearing one would be at a Park Avenue dinner party. It is a madness that claims that not only is the white boogeyman out to get the black man, but everything negative in the life of blacks, including rain on a freshly washed car, is the white man’s fault, and its time for blacks to declare war on whites.
Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) have blamed racism for, amongst other things, black unemployment – and they’ve done their collective best to paint the tea party as the source of their angst. One headline read that the CBC had declared war on white America.
Not to be left out of this theater, New Black Panther Party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz told a crowd of blacks in Harlem to “prepare for war against [white] America.” He told them to “gird up their loins” it was a “war against capitalist bloodsucker America.” Predictably, his audience applauded and cheered.
What those applauding his violent bipolar and schizophrenic screed perhaps failed 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.
Shabazz’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 they aren’t the solution – they are the problem.
White people and capitalism have contributed mightily to the destruction of blacks, but it is in the very area that blacks like Waters and the CBC are committed to keeping readily available. It is in the form of Planned Parenthood and their death mills. Planned Parenthood has made billions of dollars through the systematic extermination of blacks – but Shabazz and company don’t view that as bad.
White people aren’t encouraging blacks to drop out of school. Whites aren’t encouraging blacks to lead lifestyles that are destructive to their families and themselves individually. The whites Wilson, Lee and the CBC are telling blacks to fight aren’t the ones encouraging blacks to look to the government before they look to self.
In May 2010, speaking as the New Black Panther Party convention convener and chairman, Shabazz said: “With the rise of the tea party, the white-right and other racist forces … with gun sales nationwide at an all-time high amongst whites, with a mood that is more anti-black at any time recent, it is imperative that we organize our forces, pool our resources and prepare for war.”
He raises a good point, but it’s from the wrong perspective pursuant to his argument. First of all, with the sudden proliferation of black flash gangs, black flash mobs, black snatch and grab gangs, and with the likes of Shabazz, Waters and the CBC calling for open warfare on whites – even if the increase in firearms sales were singularly just, as Shabazz claimed – who could blame people wanting to protect themselves?
Are whites encouraging blacks to perpetrate violent crimes against them, just to have a reason to hide behind buying firearms? Or is the true reason sportsmen and enthusiasts are buying firearms is because we are concerned that Obama will keep his promises to impact our Second Amendment rights?
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 race-based and color-coded programs have failed mightily, that despite all best efforts many blacks have embraced failure rather than opportunity.
