Never Underestimate The Stupidity Of Idiots

After reading one of my comments I of course felt a post coming on.  This person I am about to respond to is just like all the others that made the very reason why I went on hiatus.  Too much stupidity in one place is a dangerous thing.  So, let’s just jump right in and get this party started, shall we?

My new friend Stephen Conklin asks: “First of all, what do black people not have in this country that white people do? You are showing your racism right there.”

Really, I am showing my racism by pointing out that there is disparity between races?  This is a real question?  Well I guess some people really are clueless.  OK Stephen I’ll bite.  How about we just list it out with reference so that you will be happy to have it backed up.  But then you can’t really complain.

  •  Wealth – The median wealth of white households is 20 times that of black households according to a Pew Research Center analysis of newly available government data from 2009. (Boy, what is it now after this recession?  Do you think it grew or shrank?)

I guess you really can’t argue with that one unless you are going to tell me that black people just don’t want wealth, so they go about trying to ensure they have none.  Or there is a real system of inequality in this country.  Hmmm?

  • Jobs – Blacks are unemployed right now at a rate of twice that of whites.  Black unemployment surged to 16.7% in August, its highest level since 1984, while the unemployment rate for whites fell slightly to 8%, the Labor Department reported.  Black unemployment has been roughly double that of whites since the government started tracking the figures in 1972

And I guess you are going to say that black people just don’t want to work.  But somehow they want to complain about unemployment for blacks.  Hmm, doesn’t make sense, because if we didn’t want to work, we would all be happy about the numbers of unemployed blacks versus whites and then ask why more aren’t unemployed.  Or can we look at the study by Devah Pager which showed that black men with NO criminal record and a 4 year college degree got far less job offers than white men with a felony record.  Stephen, how do we explain this?  Is it *GASP* disparity?  Is it something that white men have – the fallacy that they are somehow better than black men, even when they have a criminal record?  OH MY, what exactly could this study be showing us?  Who knows right?

But people such as you will deny that this has anything to do with racism, it is just a side effect of something else.  Why don’t you enlighten us as to why black unemployment is always double white unemployment?  Because if blacks have everything whites have and every opportunity whites have then we should have similar unemployment rates.  So what is the problem here?  Lazy blacks, illegal immigrants taking black jobs or maybe it is just another example of how blacks are the last hired and the first fired as most blacks in the workforce already know.

  • Home ownership – Home ownership rates for African Americans is 48% (compared to 75% for Whites) according to newly released U.S. Census data from 2009. (Boy, I wonder what those rates are since this recession. Stephen, they sure as hell didn’t get better after 2009, you think?)

Now why is this?  It can’t be that blacks just decided, “Hey, we don’t want houses or a way to build wealth for our families.”  In fact we don’t want houses or jobs.  That’s it right Stephen?  Or maybe the redlining, racist lending practices and last hired, first fired is making a showing in the housing market as well.  But of course this doesn’t mean that white people have something black people don’t have.  This just means that blacks don’t have stuff white people DO have.  LOL.

  • Education –  According to The Maynard Institute more than 25 years after Brown v. Board of Education integrated the public schools, schools remain segregated. Studies establish that segregation perpetuates racial inequality. Teachers assigned to minority schools are more likely to be inexperienced or teaching outside their fields of expertise. Schools serving minority communities receive less financing and fewer schools are constructed in minority communities. Black and brown children are disciplined more harshly and frequently for the same offenses as white children.
But of course this is because black children don’t want to learn right?  Everything showing disparity between the races proving that whites DO have things blacks don’t, can always be summed up as just a byproduct of blacks lack of desire for these things.  Not that the American system is inherently set up to create these disparities.  You see Stephen after slavery was abolished, Jim Crow reared its ugly head, then after Jim Crow we now have a supposed underground system even if highly blatant disparity that people like you pretend not to see.  Even though it is glaring in your face like the pretty lights blinking on any of the casinos littering the strip in Las Vegas.
But, please don’t let me open your eyes.  Just continue to sleep and pretend that its all equal and all black people have to do is pull themselves up by these non existent boot straps and just have what whites have.  Because we black people never contemplated doing that at all.  In fact we just never thought of just having these things.  Hey, I am going to go and tell all the blacks, “Just have exactly what whites have!”  Now, we can just do it.  Thanks Stephen, you really showed me and the rest of black America that it was in our hands the whole time and all we had to do was do it.  That college degree holding black man can now say, I’ll get that job no matter what felony wielding white man comes in for the position too.  I will just TAKE that job.  Thanks, Stephen you opened up all of our eyes!

But back to the REAL world, WHY is it that I have to consistently implore you to do a little research before coming to my blog and talking crap?  Second time you haven’t listened and again the second time you look like an idiot.  And yes, I called you a name.  It is how we label someone when they are behaving in a manner that calls for their behavior to be explained to many people.

If you feel that my calling you what you come here and showing me you must be, then by all means don’t come here.  I didn’t come to you and call you a name, you came here and acted in a fashion that warranted a name.  If it talks like a moron, writes like a moron and thinks like a moron, then the chances are overwhelming that it IS a moron.  Sorry.

Good luck next time.  But, again, do some research before bringing your tripe.  I don’t like stupidity for the sake of stupidity.  Oh, and I will answer the rest of your tripe in due time.

YOUR IT STEPHEN:  PROVE THAT BLACKS HAVE EVERYTHING WHITES DO?

Who Cares About Hunger When You Have A Meat Suit

The sheer audacity of some people is a line that I seem to be repeating consistently these days.  I know that I haven’t written an article in quite some time as I have some family affairs to deal with at this time which to me were and are more pressing.  Anyhow, this is about the MTV music awards.  Now mind you I don’t watch any music awards as they are all about stupidity and music that I could care less to listen to.  Not to mention about supposed stars that I could care less to neither see nor listen too.

But, in watching the news, which I DO like to partake in, I saw that Lady Gaga wore a meat suit to these stupid awards.  Now most of the time I could care less like I was saying, but for some reason this got on my nerves like nothing else, well maybe unlike watching bits and pieces of some stupid Rock Hudson film this weekend.  And I just had, and I mean HAD to spew my disgust and issues regarding this fool.  I know that people will tell me that she is just pushing the envelope sort of like Madonna did in her time.  Even though one can or could argue that at least Madonna had some talent to go along with her nutty trend setting.

But for me this fool has neither talent nor taste.  And that is a bad combination to say the least.  Now let’s get a move on to what pisses me off about this so called fashion statement.  We are in a recession and people are finding it hard enough to put food on the table and this idiot wears around food like a dress.  I am not a PETA fan nor am I a big fan of meat, especially red meat.  But, my problem with this chick is that there are so many starving and hungry people and she busts out with an outfit saying who cares that you’re hungry, I have so much money I can wear food until it rots off of me.

I find it insensitive and incredibly tasteless.  I understand that people will cry about the fact that she isn’t saying anything with her dress of meat.  That she is just trying to be outrageous and push the envelope as far as it will go until it literally disintegrates.  I feel that people should be able to do what they want UNLESS it is totally distasteful, insensitive or just plain stupid.  And her antics cover all three.  She should think of those listeners who might be struggling with what the Bush administration referred to as having food insecurity.

But unfortunately to me the only thing that she did was give a middle finger to all the starving or should I say food insecure people all over the world.  Actually I could not care less if this chick had more talent than all the supposed celebrities in the world.  It would not in my humble opinion make her any less ridiculous for her tasteless meaty antics.  Just my two cents and that is all that matters to me.

How’s That Drill Baby Drill Workin’ Out For Ya’?

Hey, Sarah Palin, how’s that drillin’ workin’ out for ya’?   Is this the drillin’ you wanted?  A bunch of dead oil rig workers and a big ass oil slick flowing into the gulf?  A bunch of new dead animals, pollution on the beach and toxic chemicals that will last for years.  Oh, that’s right, she is from Alaska, she knows all about oil spills and dead animals.  Obviously it doesn’t matter since she likes yelling drill baby drill.

She had a great time on all the news channels asking everyone how that change was workin’ out for us all.  Why isn’t she on there now asking the republicans how they like that drilling.   I guess she feels that we should drill until the entire ocean is filled with the toxic sludge that is oil; which will ensure that, all the wild life that live around or in the ocean are extinct and everyone looks as if they could be the star in that movie the Hills Have Eye’s.

How about the new mantra of the republican party can now be, Oil slick baby, oil slick!

My Return From Hiatus

Well, I have been away on a long over due hiatus.  And I didn’t even give anyone a heads up that I was taking this little hiatus and I am sorry about that.  Hey, I needed a little me time.  And trust me I have been using my time wisely.

For one, I had been thinking a lot about the ridiculous comments that I get on this blog.  And just grew tired of the same mindless drivel flowing so freely from the minds of the zombie like idiots that come my way.  It just boggles the mind that these people are actually voting and working amongst us.  Scary!

Next, I decided to do a tune up on the two kid mommy body.  I X’d it out with some P90X and I am ecstatically happy about the results I am getting.  I can’t wait to do this again.  Sounds like torture but you know what, once you start seeing the results you don’t want to stop.

We have had this system for a good 3 years, since my significant other, the fit and fabulous guy he is, did the p90X right after I had our little bundle of joy.   And I wish I had engaged in it sooner.  I did do the diet portion since I needed to cook for him while he X’d it out.  But, I wasn’t ready for the exercise regimen and probably wouldn’t have finished.  Actually I KNOW I wouldn’t have finished.  I am glad I waited because now was the perfect time.

And last but certainly not least, I have been giving my kids way more time for going to the park and fun things like that.  My youngest son needs different therapies and I wanted to take this time to make totally certain that he is getting and will get the best care that he deserves.  Being an advocate for your child, and probably anyone, is very time consuming.

I am sure this becomes painfully more time consuming when you have to fight with insurance companies who wish to stiff your child and deny them the critical services that they need to be healthy.  It is ridiculous.  And for people to sit around and complain about the health care bill being too much and how it is terrible need to suddenly find themselves with a disorder or a child with a disorder, syndrome or some other illness that requires intensive treatment.  Then their little tune will change immediately.  I have problems with the bill as well.  Not because it does too much, but because it doesn’t do enough!  They needed to go miles further.

There is nothing worse than a bunch of ignorant people who never have to use their health care to sit around and tell others that they don’t deserve to be protected from greedy overzealous money driven insurance companies who work day in and day out trying to figure out ways in order to deny coverage for necessary treatments in order to maximize profits.  But, who cares as long as it isn’t you or your kid or family in general.

As long as it happens to people you never have to see, that is fine and dandy.  But, some of us are willing to pay our fair share in order to ensure that the least of us have the same access to the best health care.  Thank god that we have a seriously good health care plan or who knows what types of fights I would be having.

I probably wouldn’t have one minute to spare.  Actually, I probably would have plenty of time as my child would just be one more of those who are suffering with no care because too many selfish jackasses can only think of themselves and how they need to be ensured they don’t and won’t ever have to help anyone.  Yet, expect to be helped when they need it.

We saw a lot of this when so many people from the auto unions were complaining about being over taxed and those taxes going to give handouts.  But then the minute the auto makers decided to close plants here, the union workers were picketing and crying into the news cameras about how they needed help or they would be losing their homes and medical etc.  REALLY?  I wish someone would have taken them a tape of the town hall meetings they were screaming at and ask them why their views suddenly changed about help.  Who wants a handout now?

When are we going to understand that taxes aren’t a bad thing?  We have tea party fools yelling they don’t want to pay any taxes.  They don’t want to pay taxes yet expect the fire man to miraculously show up to their burning house.  Have the police run in to protect them when something goes wrong.  Have a nicely paved road to drive their fancy new car on.  Or better yet, help bail their company out so they don’t lose their jobs.  And have all of this without shelling out one red cent.

How ignorant have we really become?  No one is saying that taxes are the bomb and we should love it.  But, I am saying that we should be willing to pay our fair share to ensure the betterment of our community.  And by community I mean entire country of fellow citizens.  Not the sheltered little bubble some of you live in, where you don’t ever have to mingle with the insurance deprived.  Well that is until they serve you your Big Mac.

We can all take a page from Zig Ziglar that you can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.  And thus if we want to be healthy happy people, we need to ensure that we are helping others to be healthy and happy as well.

Jon & Kate Irate

jon-kate

I don’t think that I have talked about the Jon & Kate + 8 fiasco but I am sure my two cents couldn’t hurt or help this train wreck in process.  These two are purportedly making seventy five grand an episode and they are squabbling over continuing this epic voyeurism gone bad.  I find this whole thing to be a total joke.  Not only are they hurting their children but they don’t even seem to care.

But, shouldn’t we now be talking about the fact that this is another guy who ISN’T black leaving his children fatherless.  And yes he left them moved to another state and shacked up with some young chippie.  Dude makes eight babies and then just leaves the baby momma all high and dry.  Yet, ask Obama and he would place Jon squarely in the black community.

Yes, by all counts there are far more single mothers of the Caucasian persuasion than in any other race.  But, it just feels better to point the finger of values at black folks.  This whole family reeks of the same stereotypes that they love to place on the black races door step.  We see an over bearing loud mouthed argumentative woman (white), a cheating loser with eight kids whom he has abandoned.  Both of them fighting and arguing over money.  We see a couple of people who have put their love of money before the welfare of their family.

Yet to let Bill Cosby tell it, this lady is Shaniqua.  Oh, just with more money.  They can’t provide for their kids either, at least not without TLC.  That is the reason they are doing a television show.  Made eight babies and can’t take care of them.   And now that Jon the dad has gotten used to his jet setting money spending ways he is beside himself with anger that they wish to cut him off.  And now he is trying to throw his wife under the bus even though the money she gets is supporting his children.

I guess he feels entitled to this handout from TLC even though he is no longer in the picture.  Or maybe he feels that if he can’t have a cut of the cash his kids shouldn’t either.  I mean we all know that the bum doesn’t work anymore.  And how much is he paying in child support again?  The man has sued saying that TLC is no longer welcome in his home even though he has made his home in an upscale New York bachelor pad and a new woman to go with it.

He claims that the TLC show is no longer good for his children.  Uh, WTF?   Was his leaving his kids to shack up with some other woman good for his kids?  Was sleeping with the babysitter good for his kids?  Was saying horrible things about his kids mother on national television good for his kids?  Not to mention just a few weeks ago he said that he felt the show was good for his kids.  What happened since then?  Oh yeah, they said he was no longer going to be on the show.  How ridiculous.

I don’t know why I even care since I don’t watch the show and thought it was ridiculous to begin with.  I personally feel that this is the epitome of what is wrong with reality television.  It serves no purpose for me to want to know or care about what they do in their daily lives.  I have enough reality in my own life to care.  There are probably millions of people with eight or more kids.  My mom’s family had nine kids, my dads family just as many and my significant others family had ten kids.  So what?

Anyhow, I thought I would just weigh in on this crap because in all sincerity I was sick to death of hearing the updates on which freaking parent was crying, whining and singing the blues to this or that reporter about the horrible mess that is their ex-spouse.  Do they think that maybe just maybe one day their children will grow up and see these public displays of hate?  I am sure they will, just as surely Madonna’s children will grow up and see their mommy’s naked body in a book.

What will these kids say?  Or will they already be so screwed up it won’t matter?  We see all too well what happens when families are dysfunctional.  But hey, we allow people such as these to make their mistakes and do their dirt without maligning their entire race.  Maybe we should take the same approach with others and their stupidity as well.  But we know better.  All we can look forward to is this voyeuristic view into the lives of Jon & Kate plus hate.

Why Give Roman Polanski A Pass?

free polanski

What in the hell are people thinking?  If Michael Vick were to have fled the country after killing those dogs would we have a flood of people protesting against his extradition in order to face the music?  Of course not!  I mean people are opposed to the man actually working again, let alone getting away without punishment.

Yet, Roman Polanski actually has a gaggle of people crying foul about this disgusting pedophile being extradited to face the music finally for raping a 13 year old girl.  Now I don’t know about anyone else but hasn’t this man been allowed to be on the run for far too long?  I mean he has pretty much lived his freaking life.  And just now we want to attempt to nab him.  HA!

I understand that his victim no longer wishes to see him get justice for what he did and hey those are her views.  But you know what; she isn’t the one who decides whether or not this perv gets what he deserves.  Maybe she has finally made peace in her life with what occurred and doesn’t want to drudge up the past.  But that doesn’t mean that he should pay no penalty.

Now back to this gaggle of people protesting.  Their main complaint is that Mr. Polanski is such a great director and so talented that he shouldn’t have to worry about those skeletons from his past.  And I have also heard that his mother was killed in a concentration camp.  As if any of this matters.  It didn’t matter to Texas that a man was clearly mentally disabled when they put him to death for his crimes.  So why does it matter that he has had adversities in his past.  Haven’t we all?

I don’t think it is about the statute of limitations on the crime since he did plead guilty.  By admitting guilt he was forgoing the need for a trial.  All that was left was the put the dude behind bars like any other criminal.  I see this as a serious double standard.  Maybe other rapists or pedophiles never intend to rape or “seduce” any more children either.  And maybe they are skilled at their profession, so why should they have to pay for their crimes?

I guess the hypocrisy gets me.  We cry about the fact that so many perverts do very little time after assaulting children.  Then turn around and want to make exceptions for those we see as somehow better than the run of the mill criminal.  Would he be receiving this same treatment if he were let’s say, Spike Lee?  Would that guy get a pass?

We know this guy couldn’t even get a pass from people when he put it straight to Clint Eastwood about his portrayal of WWII.  People wanted to string him up for his comments to Clint.  But who is above the law?  Who can obstruct justice without as much as a blink of an eye?  Where is the outrage?  Where is the disgust at what he did?

I guess it is just me who thinks that we should NOT look lightly upon these perverts who can and will destroy lives when given the chance.  People say that he hasn’t done this again, but how do we know for sure.  He might have left a trail of 13 year old victims around Europe who were either too afraid to tell or cowed out of it.

Maybe having equality could start with the little things such as making sure that you receive the same punishment for your crime no matter the criminals, race, creed, wealth or religion.  But we know that is just wishful thinking.   SOME of those with status will always be able to skirt justice.  Because it is people who wish they were like them, who will allow them this privilege.   If you feel that he shouldn’t have to face the music, why?

Is Disagreeing With Obama Racism?

OK, it is getting just absolutely nuts out there.  I am reading some; make that a lot of blogs out there that all have the same theme.  By Carter saying that race is playing a part in how Obama is being treated somehow they think that everyone is saying that everyone is playing the race card.  Somehow racism can’t be a part of people disagreeing with Obama.  And all the people hate Obama for what he has done.

One of the blogs I read said that people hated Obama because of what he has done to the country and what he is trying to do.  Well, I’ll bite.  What exactly has Obama done?   I personally don’t care for Obama as I know for a fact that he cares as much about the black community as McCain or his idiotic sidekick moose hunter Palin.  I just haven’t seen anything that the guy has done or proposed that would cause all this anger.

Bush enacted the Patriot Bill which actually stole our so called “freedoms” and no one seems to have been out running to a tea party.  Bush said that it was OK to wire tap AMERICAN CITIZENS in their homes which takes away my right to privacy and yet not one tea party or outcry from Glen Beck or anyone else who leans right.

Supposedly Obama has run up the deficit, yet where were these so called tea party folks when Bush practically sent this country to the poor house?  Where in the hell do these uneducated loons think that this large as hell deficit came from?  Trust me it didn’t pop into existence the day Obama won the white house.  Trust me it was there the day before, the year before.  Hell it was there two, three and even four years before and was growing bigger every day.

Is it just me or does anyone else wonder where in the hell were all these people crying give us our country back?   Why is it, all of a sudden a black man is in the white house and now we, and in case no one noticed the vast majority of these people are white, want the country back.  Back from WHO!?  Who in the hell has taken off with the country?   Oh, yeah a black man.  I get it.

Anyway, these people don’t understand that it is one thing to disagree with the president, hell I do.  I just really don’t like this guy.  But, when I am holding signs that say “there is an African lion in the zoo and an African lying in the white house”; I think we have gone far beyond just disagreeing with the president.  There is NO need to mention is race or creed in order to make a point about how he is doing a bad job.

But, you see, my problem is that he really hasn’t DONE anything that shows he did a bad job.  He hasn’t raised taxes (YET), he hasn’t gotten us into two ridiculous wars, he hasn’t sat idly by while a whole state of people practically drowned and starved for five days and he sure hasn’t enacted a bunch of laws that strips Americans of their rights.  And if he has, then why doesn’t someone please list these taxes, wars, catastrophes and laws that he has helped to pass that would show me the reason for such anger.

I didn’t support Bush either but I wouldn’t jump down his throat if he had done nothing to hurt people.  But the problem is he did.  So there has to be something that this guy has done that would cause all these people to practically be chomping at the bit to overthrow the government.  I have been listening to these people at the tea parties and health care protests and they say things that go against their own interests.  So what is their real motive if not health care and taxes?

Are We Americans Really This Stupid?

Moron

I think it’s high time for me to do a little bit of venting.  I have been pretty much silent on the health care debate but listening to NPR today just really made me angry.  I practically screamed all the way from our house to Grandma’s pad.

They were talking to people who watched the President speaking about health care last night and what they thought about what he said.  Well there has obviously been a resurgence of crack usage that seems to have escaped the throngs of news reporters who were so quick to let you know about its usage in the black community.

Anyway, a lady was complaining about the fact that the President wants to make it illegal for insurance companies to use pre-existing conditions to deny coverage.  She likened it to having no car insurance even though it’s mandatory then wrecking into a tree and running to Geico and yelling for them too cover you quick.

Now this lady was obviously so high on crack that she sounded like a total idiot.  We all know that there isn’t one way in hell that any insurance company would cover that situation because coverage starts the minute you sign on the dotted line, not retroactively so it doesn’t quite fit this problem.

We know for a fact that insurance companies are NOT denying coverage to people who sat around with no insurance even though they could afford it purely for no reason.  Who got cancer and then said I better go get health insurance to cover this.

Nope, what the President is talking about is this bullshit about people having bogus pre-existing conditions that somehow should preclude the insurance company from paying any further claims even though they have been collecting the person’s money religiously.

What he is talking about would be the fifty year old man who has just gotten a diagnosis for osteoarthritis and the insurance company denies his coverage because when he was ten years old he stubbed his big toe and needed a band aid from the school nurse.  This is the preposterous crap that happens day in and day out.

And to tell you the truth, this idiotic lady will be the first one to cry, holler and scream that things aren’t fair when, not if, but when this happens to her and/or her loved ones.  I have seen this game all too often as I’ve worked at two insurance companies and I’ve worked at countless hospitals.

This isn’t a game, it is real, it happens and it is practically criminal already.  Either they need to be forced into giving the person the care they PAID for or giving them a full refund on their premiums, including those paid by the person’s job.

I guess since this lady hasn’t had to be one of those affected adversely by her insurance company she can stand to sit around and make idiotic comparisons about a real life travesty.  When are people going to think outside of the doggone box?  It doesn’t take much to do some critical thinking.

I believe that our school system has failed so many.  And it seems that their parents didn’t bother to pick up the slack in teaching critical thinking skills either.  Are we American’s really this stupid?

Tea Party Or Pity Party

cincinnati-tea-party

I haven’t felt much like talking about politics since the election. But, this tea bag business has got me fuming and I feel the need to vent to all of you. I don’t have a problem with protest as to me that is what makes one a good citizen. Letting the powers that be know when you are unhappy with a certain treatment or behavior that needs changing.

But the problem I am having with this tea bag bullshit is that it makes no sense. Where were all these people with their tea bags and signs when Bush was getting us into this mess? Are those crickets I hear chirping in the background? I guess they were too busy calling everyone unpatriotic and then telling them to support our president to do any protesting.

I have seen signs that people have their children holding saying things like “Obama is spending my future earnings.” OK, I can go with that. But where were these people and their children when Bush was running up the deficit to astronomical amounts for the last eight years? Were they too busy reaping the benefits of all those tax cuts for the rich? Oh, that’s right these are the fools who don’t make over 250 g’s. They are the ones who make minimum wage but feel that the trickle down effect Bush tried will work if we give it adequate time.

I know that these people don’t really believe that this economic fiasco just started the day Obama got into office. And I know damn well that these are the same people who if we go by their signs and let free market reign, will be crying about their lost job. Help me government. That is exactly what they would be running around saying if we allow businesses to just start going under. Now don’t get me wrong this is exactly what I wanted. Let them go down and take these losers with them.

But the problem is now, that we have a bunch of people with selective memories who feel that somehow everyone can keep their jobs, we can fix our infrastructure, fix our health care, fix our school system, continue two failed wars, make up for the housing, stock and financial markets crisis all while giving everyone or at least the rich a free ride on taxes. Not to mention cut business taxes and allow them to have offshore tax shelters.

How does any part of this plan or non-plan make any sense to anyone at all? This is utter idiocy. But, isn’t that the same idiocy we have seen out of these jackasses for the last eight years? What are they proposing that is different than then? They actually have built a following of nuts by telling them we need to continue the failed plans of the last eight years in order to repair the damage of the last eight years. UH, WHAT? Can you run that by me again?

And if that isn’t enough, they still seem to be following and listening to a back alley junky (Rush Limbaugh). What is wrong with these people? I don’t know if Obama will succeed and I don’t know if he is on the right path. But the one thing I DO KNOW is that we can’t continue the last eight years of stupidity. As that is what we KNOW is the wrong thing.

*SIGH* Can’t we just put aside the petty crap for a couple of years and try to patch up the tears and rips that Bush and his clowns put in the fabric of our society.  Which makes me wonder if this is a tea party with real background or just a pity party aimed at crying over the loss of power.

Holding On To Racism

19japskeepmovin

I received a reply from a fellow named Charlie on my post “Kids will be kids unless they are black.” He said “It is far too easy for the black community to blame the negative view some white people may hold of blacks on racism, rather than taking a long hard look at the real causes of such ill feelings…” Now of course this got me to thinking about blame and negative views of different races.

What I commented back to him was the fact that not only blacks have a negative view from people around the world. White people have just as bad a reputation as black people. Now sure I will agree that blacks have been more maligned as most of the world is run by white people some of which seem to have no problem spreading hate about blacks the world over.

He wants to claim that blacks are holding on to racism instead of taking this long hard look at themselves or whatever. Has he or anyone who thinks as he does, ever taken a good long look at white people and their connection with racism? Black people aren’t the only ones holding on to racism.

In America the Native American, Hispanic, African American and Muslim are or have complained of racism at the hands of the white race. The Aborigine in Australia, blacks in South Africa, minorities in France, the UK, Italy, Ireland and just about any place with a minority population has or is complaining about racism by white people.

Is this some horrible case of mistaken identity or some colossal conspiracy that all these races have felt racially maligned by white people? Charlie wants black people to take a hard look at the real cause of such ill feelings all the while acting as if the white race has been nothing but accommodating and welcoming to those of other races.

This is by no means an accusation of the entire white race as being racist. This is just a reply to an idiot who also said that “Sadly the black community in the West only seems to re-enforce these stereotypes, then blame white people for thinking the worst of blacks.” And the way I see it, some in the white community only seem to reinforce the stereotype of white racism, then blame black people for thinking the worst of them.

So instead of people like Charlie always making each and every point they make about black people being filled with stereotypes of them being criminally inclined, future less high school drop outs, why don’t they try and go back even further. The reason they don’t is because it blows a big hole in their entire argument of blacks being somehow completely and utterly responsible for all of their bad press, bad conditions and everyone’s crime problem.

Charlie said that white people should have a higher crime rate and he is right white’s should have a higher conviction rate than blacks but they don’t. Why doesn’t he ask why? Why doesn’t he read the DOJ’s study on how the judicial system in America is biased? Why he doesn’t just look at the fact that if you are constantly profiling people by race and that race doesn’t include white people, they are going to get away with more crimes than the next person. It doesn’t mean they don’t commit crimes.

It is the same with the white kids drinking from my last post. If they were to go ahead and arrest them for these crimes, no matter how simple someone feels this crime is, the numbers would rise. If they were to spend the amount of time on fashion faux pas in the white area as they do in the black areas their numbers would rise.

And according to a 2005 study by the Justice Department found that while Hispanic, black and white drivers were stopped by the police about as often, Hispanic drivers or their vehicles were searched 11.4 percent of the time and blacks 10.2 percent of the time, compared with 3.5 percent for white drivers. I guess you think that this is an accident? And maybe, just maybe if they searched white people’s cars at the rate they do for Latinos and blacks they would be carting a bunch of them off to jail.

Data collected from state courts by the Justice Department also shows that a higher percentage of black felons than white felons receive prison sentences for nearly all offenses, and also that blacks receive longer maximum sentences for most offenses.  So like I said people need to start looking beyond the silly little stereotypes.

He claims that the black/white crime disparity shocked him.  What he should be shocked about is the fact that him and those like him want to play down, discount and overlook any and all racial disparity that exist in favor of this phony everybody is equal and somehow blacks are just doing everything wrong. Sometimes Charlie and those like him, racism plays a bigger role than any of you wishes to admit.
