“the selfish people like you are the problem you think your entitled to everyone’s money just because your great great great great grand father or mother was a slave and that makes you special or entitled to something your not you and every one in this country has the same possibilities as everyone else how do i now this because i am a high school drop out that has made it in this country despite all of the one sided racist social programs grabbing at my money every day, if your so called “lower class” would put a little effort into getting out of the lower class as i and many other have done in this country they would no longer be lower class and we would not have a need for theses racial social entitlement programs that you speak so highly of WE dont need more people on more progams we need the lower class “entitlement generation to do for them selves and get off their A**es and stop dragging this counrty into the Abyss. . .” Roger Weaver
First of all we can all agree that this is what happens when people don’t get an education. Run on sentences, lack of punctuation and abysmal spelling. But let’s go ahead and answer to this seriously flawed thinking individual.
This comment was taken from my blog post titled “We the sheeple.” I called him selfish because he doesn’t think that we should even entertain health care for all. Which is fine, but he has this me and my attitude as well as this fear that blacks are somehow begging for a health care handout.
Now how is saying we need health care for ALL me saying that black people are entitled to everyone’s money? Or is he under some idiotic thought that ONLY blacks have no health care and that if we move to help everyone blacks will be the only folks who will benefit.
How and where does slavery have to do with health care? See this is just more racist babble in order to somehow lessen the argument for health care as some sort of ploy by blacks to get more of these fantasy entitlement programs that really don’t and never have existed.
He wants us to believe that everyone has the same chances of success in this country. But we all know that is the biggest fallacy around today. This country was built on inequality and still flourishes under inequality. He will discount the study done 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. But that is equality in the eyes of Roger. And we wonder why we are still suffering under racism.
And if you read my post I have not spoken highly of any so called racial programs. This is just more of his racism showing itself to the world. I guess the racial programs he was speaking of were the fire department, police department and the mail system. Thos were the only programs I spoke of and I surely didn’t know that only black people had access to those services.
This is just more evidence that even though our education system is lacking, it is even worse when you don’t go at all. Because I think we all know or should know that the programs that I mentioned are by all measures social programs in which we all pay and we all get to benefit from them. And how do these systems continue to work without breaking our country but somehow health care just can’t be run if it doesn’t include HMO’s and insurance giants. Give me a break please!
And then of course this selfish racist wants to equate black with low class, lazy people; because if “we” meaning blacks would just get off our asses and get jobs we won’t have this problem. Really? Since the last time I checked there are millions of hard working people of ALL races who have jobs and no health care. But let Roger tell it and only blacks are begging at the big house like country cousins for health care. This is a prime example of why our society is still in the stone ages when dealing with issues of race, social constructs and equality.
Because people like Roger would rather watch innocent families and hard working Americans die in the streets rather than pool his money with everyone else’s and provide everyone including him and his family with health care. For fear a black person might get a handout or entitlement of some sort. His total fixation on blacks, handouts and health care leads me to believe that if there were NO blacks in this country, the US would more than likely have universal health care.
