The Propaganda of A Ron Paul Supporter

templ5.jpg

I received a reply from a reader that it seems has a totally opposite view of things than myself. Instead of returning a reply I felt that this comment deserved its own post. The reply is from H.R. who seems to constantly have this totally condescending attitude when talking with me. I am not sure whether this is personal or just his arrogant egotistical attitude. He has referred to my mind as being a sad little tiny place, I am also brain damaged and intellectually crippled.

Instead of exchanging barbs I will try my best to get my point across to you as well as H.R., who starts us off with “Government is an agreement among free people. Do you get that? A set of rules agreed upon by a set of people. Not a separate entitiy from those people. It’s when you start thinking of government as some all powerful being that’s going to take care of you and fight your battles and right all wrongs that you set yourself up to be controlled.

YES, I understand the principle of government and who and what it is for. That was the point I was trying to make to H.R. in a previous reply. He previously said that “No, the system didn’t “encompass” slavery … Blacks weren’t defined as people protected under the system. In other words, it was a mistake of definition, not in the nature of the law. Think of it as a monopoly game. The rules are the same for everyone, but the hard fact is that you weren’t allowed to play for a while. Now you can play, but because you’re bitter about being excluded you wan’t the rules slanted in your favor ..” Now when I spoke to him previously I used the term system to mean government.

H.R. can’t sit and now claim that the system never encompassed slavery. If the “system” never encompassed slavery then exactly who did? The system DID encompass slavery as it was institutionalized which meant that the act was given authority and by who if not the system or government. Yet H.R. would like for us to believe that somehow slavery didn’t involve the system who were the government who were the people.

Back to his comment about government, the operative word in his definition is FREE. When the government or system was set up we were NOT a free people so therefore had no such agreement. Now that we are supposedly free, the SAME government that deemed us as NOT free has not changed, they are not some new entity who entered into a new agreement with us. So what does a people do when the system or government or those free individuals making agreements with the government is dominated by a race of people who one – don’t respect them, two – started out denying them and continue to do so and three – don’t protect or acknowledge their rights whatever you deem that to be.

You can’t, if you want to have principles, allow racial issues to influence your philosophy of government, any more than you can have special rules for short people, ugly people, people with IQs under 90, etc. At what point do you stop dividing people and taking from one group to make up ground for another group? It’s a slippery slope.

Racial issues are and will continue to dominate our country due to the unwillingness of the dominating populace to see the hypocrisy in its actions. One group gets special treatment, is and was allowed to take from the other for the entire duration of their relationship and NOW H.R. would like for us to stop dividing people. I don’t know where he is going with this. I would like to know at what point do we stop dividing people and how do we even the playing field after one group has and continues to benefit so heavily from the divisions they created.

You have no larger concept of government except that it was created by whites so it must be a plot to perpetuate white privilege … This is a truly ignorant stance. You know what else was created by whites??? Nearly every staple of your life. The computer you’re using, the light over your head, the internal combustion engine in the car you drive … Was all of this done to perpetuate white privilege? Please tell me.

The government being created by whites is not the problem. The government being created as a means to advance white people at the expense of all others IS. The only ignorant thing is that people can actually think that a system of government was enacted which encompassed the subjugation and slavery of another race is not inherently set up to perpetuate the ruling race’s status.

Thanks for the history lesson on inventions, but how about some of these. Pretty much every staple of YOUR life as well as mine has its roots in Africa. Africans pioneered mathematics, medical practices not rooted in myth or magic, metallurgy, building with brick and mortar, and astronomy. Now you thank an African American for open heart surgery, refrigeration for trucks also trains, gas masks, elevators, air conditioner, refrigerator, Cell phones, fire extinguishers and the computer system you use today with its working bus and peripheral capability. Are these plots by the black race to show that they are productive citizens and worthy of being equal?

These things were introduced as a matter of progress–as is the ever changing system of government in Western society. Political philosophers have never been preoccupied with race…. read what they have to say. Thomas Paine, who was responsible for inventing the American approach to government, was a destitute undergarment maker who came to America with nothing, never had much, and died with nothing. He was also outraged by slavery and was one of the first Americans to take a resolute stand against it.”
“The American system was a bold innovation, and was, and is, the fairest form of government to date … If you study history you’ll see that ours is the least prone to class distinctions and abuses of power; the germ of it was, as I’ve said, conceived of by a poor man who had been kept down and got the shit end of government his whole life. (I’m talking about the Constitutional Republic we’re supposed to have, not the quasi-socialism we have now.)

That is such a crock of bull! We have a system that says it is OK to discriminate, let people die as opposed to giving them healthcare, pay for war as opposed to caring for the children, sick and elderly. We are as corrupt as they come and are no better off than any socialist, communist or dictatorship. We are just bamboozled into thinking we are. We are NO more free, happy, healthy or rich. Again we are just bamboozled into thinking we have the best system on earth.

It’s pretty egocentric to assume that the framers of our government spent any time thinking of blacks …. The hard truth is that blacks were thought of as chattel; as property and nothing more. The system wasn’t designed to keep blacks down any more than it was designed to keep wagons or beasts of burden down

H.R. is abso-freakin-lutely right our grand old forefathers NEVER spent one second thinking about the black population. Because they DIDN’T MATTER! The system was designed to keep whites UP not blacks down, since they were already there. They had NO inclination that slavery would EVER end. So it wasn’t a matter of writing anything that had to take them into account. So, now how exactly was this government set up to give blacks the same rights as whites again?

So let’s be perfectly frank here, and tell me where I’ve got it wrong:
Blacks came literally out of the stone age into an intensely mechanized and complex civilization. They had not developed the wheel or a written language, and this was at the time that Newton was inventing modern physics, and even later, at the time that Edison was inventing the electric light, moving pictures, recorded sound for christ’s sake …. This was what, 2000 years (?) after practically every other racial group had conquered the seas, built ingenious sailing vessels and could navigate their ways around the world …

Is he joking! Blacks in Africa had the first Universities, even Plato had to go to Africa for a University education. We had the first medicine not rooted in magic. They were doing surgery with tools that those of today mimic. We had societies with government and rule of law. Africa had construction techniques such as brick and mortar, Metallurgy, irrigation, aqueducts and plumbing. We had civilizations so complex money was not even necessary not to mention thank them for the mathematics and writing utensils used today such as paper and pencils. There are tons of things coming from Africa yet I am sure that since he is coming from a white propaganda background he has yet to do any research in this area. He is not necessarily racist for this thinking just ignorant.

Please tell me, am I being a racist for pointing this out?

The point is, it’s totally intellectually irresponsible to say that blacks had it hard simply because whites have plotted to keep them down. You say the white race “did this to them” which is laughable …. First off, black chiefs were well involved in rounding up and selling other blacks. Secondly and most importantly, for whatever reason–and I’m not making any guesses, just dealing in the facts–black Africans had simply not advanced while most of the rest of the world was going forward at breakneck speed.”

It is irresponsible to say that blacks had it hard simply because whites have plotted to keep them down which is laughable. Of course blacks had it hard because whites were plotting to keep them down. If they didn’t plot against blacks then how does H.R. explain the KKK, Jim Crow, Slavery and all the persistent discrimination and racism that has continued even today? I totally agree that blacks were involved in the slave trade. Jews were involved in the holocaust, America trained Bin Laden and Al Qaeda to fight the Russians, so NOW WHAT? Are the Jews responsible for the holocaust, is America to blame for 9/11 and is this assertion supposed to make slavery OK now.

Black Africans were ruling Northern and Southern Africa which were going at breakneck speed living in civilized communities, writing history, building structures, cultivating crops and domesticating animals all the while the only thing stirring in Europe were drawing stick animals on cave walls. Does that sum up what I think of his guess?

H.R. definitely needs to take a course on African studies before you begin your little guessing game. It is pretty ignorant to make assumptions that blacks i.e. Africans are so pitiful and backwards. Yes the African continent has been trashed and usurped by many violent outside forces like the French, Dutch and British. If anything the problem Africa had is that it wasn’t VIOLENT enough to get rid of these people before they did so much damage. Now they are a group of fledgling nations trying to start again with all that they were wiped away by years of subjugate outside rule. Yes they have problems but, these nations are mere babies and will need to figure out what they are doing again.

Just being perfectly realistic, do you think Westerners could confront men of any color who did not have the wheel, a written language, clothes, etc., who could only make simple stone tools–and say “these men are my equals?

Answer that for me.

The answer to this is that H.R. definitely needs to take a few African history classes. The wheel was invented in Africa. He is so pompous about the white race or the western culture he belongs to that he actually think that everything was made by the western world. While the western world was making stone tools Africans were making tools and medical equipment from metal. Also they made scalpels and other cutting devices out of obsidian which western doctors are reverting back to. They were making replicas, jewelry and tools out of gold and mining diamonds and other stones.

And if clothes are the key to being civilized; then maybe the horrible monsters that enslaved a nation of people were just wearing the wrong things. So I am sure that with all the advances that the civilized African man had over the westerners did not cause them to see them as less than equals. But then again, the Africans didn’t attack nor try to enslave the Europeans when they met them, I am sure they were treated well just like the natives treated them when they landed in America.

Yet I am sure that none of that made any difference to H.R. as he is too far gone down the road of racist propaganda that he obviously has no interest in what really went on in Africa before the meddling of others. Africans were not these pathetic no bodies that he would like to paint them out to be. Racists usually can’t get their heads around the fact that all life originated in Africa and that the first civilized societies, with a lot of the modern day inventions that one likes to attribute to the western world.

On the whole, you need to recognize historical realities, and recognize that there’s a larger pattern of events. You’re a pretty severe racist because you’ve been duped into believing that everyone hates you because you’re black, and that everything’s a plot against you, and that history proves this. History actually proves nothing of the sort–only that your racial group was at an extraordinary disadvantage and suffered for it.

The thing that I and hopefully the other readers will recognize is that H.R. demonstrates the basic thinking of a racist who denies being one. He constantly alludes to the fact that Africans and their American counterparts are looked at as less than whites for all types of propaganda laden reasons. When H.R. says I’ve been duped I wonder if he means duped by me looking at the slavery, the systematic racism, the discrimination, the killings by lynching, police abuse, deaths, hypocritical justice system, wage discrepancies and the blatant disregard of ALL things that blacks or Africans have ever done, discovered or ever accomplished. Then yes by all means I have been duped.

“I’m sure when you come to terms with this and can separate petty emotions from your contemplation of government, you’ll arrive at some sensible conclusions.

Thanks for the discussion. I’ll look forward to your response.

It is easy to see that the ONLY conclusion that I could come to that would make any sense to H.R. would be to whatever he would and become a sheeple just like him and those like him. Unfortunately I can’t and won’t buy into H.R.’s propaganda and nonsensical thoughts on things. Yet I will let all of you the readers come to your own conclusion on this guy.

Lakota Nation Breaks Away From America

lakota-village-indian.jpg

The newest country to enter the world is called Lakota, which happens to be a well known Native American tribe. They have recently renounced their citizenship with the United States and have decided that the treaties their people signed with the white man are “worthless words on worthless paper.” They used this as a starting point for creating their own country within a country. The Lakota say the treaties have been “repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life.” Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, the Lakota said.

The Lakota have also been getting around to the embassies of as many countries as possible in order to meet and greet and to let them know about this new emerging country. I am extremely interested in seeing just how well this new fledgling country does in getting started and also how the United States will deal, react and treat them. The Lakota say that they have 33 treaties with the U.S. who have not lived by any of them. They are saying that they would like to LIVE not just survive, crawl and become mascots for the white mans sports teams. I can understand as I too wish the black community could live not just survive.

They will issue their own passports, driver’s licenses and the living in this country will be tax free for anyone who decides to live there as long as they renounce their American citizenship. It took the Lakota 33 years to get the ball rolling with enough of their own people’s support just to get their own declaration of independence from the U.S. They said that it takes at least that long in order to combat years of colonialism. This new fledgling country will include parts of Nebraska, South & North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.

Interestingly enough Russia has decided to put into action the process in which they can now recognize the new Lakota government. This is in response to the U.S. help with Bosnia Putin declared “two can play this game.” He also says that the Lakota Sioux Natives are in the best position to succeed seeing as they have never accepted payment for their lands that the U.S. has taken estimated at more than a billion dollars. This will give the Lakota people the needed recognition which will probably lead to even more recognition leading to the annexation being complete and them probably regaining their land.

I have yet to see this story on any news outlet and am extremely interested in the United States’ position and how they plan to deal with this situation. This could potentially be a serious thorn in their side if the Lakota are successful in gaining control of the land encompassing all of the states listed above. Thus making it so that the people who choose not to become a citizen of Lakota or give up their American citizenship will be forced to do a mass move out or maybe be put onto reservations which would be poetic justice. What happens when people start choosing to live in Lakota, will the government want to get retribution on those people if they decide to come back to the U.S.? There are so many questions surrounding how they will operate within the U.S. yet outside of it.

Will America wage war against them? This is the tribe that defeated General Custer, all though we know that this is a far cry from the army of today with all the high tech weaponry. I doubt anything will come of it. The Lakota government will continue to be an unrecognized state. Look at Palestine, even Vatican City has more recognition than them. So this tells you exactly what chances the Lakota has of winning over most nations in the UN who are either fiercely loyal to the U.S or afraid enough to not cross them. It is safe to say that barring the Lakota make any serious waves; the U.S. won’t even raise an eyebrow in regards to anything they do.

Ron Paul Is Blatant With Regards To Race

 

ron_paul.jpg

I have been reading a lot about Ron Paul lately. He is being touted as a racist who has affiliations with plenty of white supremacist and the like. Now I don’t doubt that at all since there are probably a lot of people in Washington with close ties to white supremacists or the like. If there weren’t then I am sure that we would be living in a fair and just society for ALL. Instead of looking for clues as to who this man is wining and dining you can just go right to his website chronicling his bid for the presidency and see exactly what this guy is all about.

He says on his website that “It is the federal government that most divides us by race, class, religion, and gender. Through its taxes, restrictive regulations, corporate subsidies, racial set-asides, and welfare programs, government plays far too large a role in determining who succeeds and who fails. Government “benevolence” crowds out genuine goodwill by institutionalizing group thinking, thus making each group suspicious that others are receiving more of the government loot. This leads to resentment and hostility among us.

Of course the federal government is the one dividing us as the federal government is itself a white institution designed to protect the white privilege that had been established by its founding fathers so long ago. These so called racial set asides and welfare programs aren’t the problem. The problem is we as a people black, white or other shouldn’t need to have these programs in place. Yet, if we don’t how will “everyone” benefit from the prosperity of this country when the structure was set up for one race to succeed at the expense of all others. People always point to the constitution as Ron Paul himself does for it to explain that ALL men are created equal. We all know from history that the founding fathers had no intention of that including neither my forefathers nor myself as at that time blacks weren’t even considered men or women.

Genuine goodwill, is this the same goodwill that makes white privilege in this country the standard and not the exception? The only thing that is leading to resentment and hostility among us is the fact that white privilege exists and the fact that those who benefits from white privilege feel it is being threatened. We hear this constantly from people such as Pat Buchanan and Bill O’Reilly. Bill said recently that “All right. There you go. White privilege. The browning of America. There it is. There it is. Bottom line on this? That’s what it is. Change the complexion of America. Have an open border where Hispanics, people who live in the Caribbean, people who live in Africa and Asia can walk in and become citizens immediately. And there you have the white power structure would decline, of course. Because the numbers of people coming here would be people of color. Right? That’s the hidden agenda.”

Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than as individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike: as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups. By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called “diversity” actually perpetuate racism.” He might as well just say that minorities and the laws that protect them ARE the reason for racism. Because reading Brotherpeacemaker’s post about the “Good Old Days” you can see that before we protected the rights of minorities there was no racial strife, whites were totally and unconditionally in control with no opposition as obviously Ron Paul feels it should be.

Diversity causes racism? I guess if a race doesn’t want another race to have the types of benefits from society they have then I guess diversity causes racism. Since the group that doesn’t want the other will do whatever it can to keep them out using terrorist tactics such as noose hanging and cross burning or just good old fashioned denial of service. Diversity doesn’t perpetuate racism which is a fallacy of racists everywhere. That being forced to allow people of ALL races to enter into every aspect of living is somehow racists. In reality it is racists to say that diversity is unnecessary, that a place should and could be all white without any problems. Ron Paul is obviously a person who would like to enact the good old days of segregation. If we don’t ensure diversity then how are we going to ensure equality?

The true antidote to racism is liberty. Liberty means having a limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights rather than group claims. Liberty means free-market capitalism, which rewards individual achievement and competence – not skin color, gender, or ethnicity. Now unfortunately free market rewarding individuals for achievement and competence not skin color would only work if EVERYONE had the same opportunities and access to those opportunities. When if only one group benefits from the status quo then we already know that those who are under-represented will not benefit no matter how hard they work or how competent they are. Isn’t that the reason we had to enact equal opportunity and affirmative action laws? Well undoing those laws like Brotherpeacemaker showed will NOT under any circumstances equal out the playing field, it will further skew it.

In a free society, every citizen gains a sense of himself as an individual, rather than developing a group or victim mentality. This leads to a sense of individual responsibility and personal pride, making skin color irrelevant. Racism will endure until we stop thinking in terms of groups and begin thinking in terms of individual liberty. The only way skin color would be irrelevant is if we were all working from the same playing field and there was no certain privilege for one group or another. Since we are already working from a white privilege standpoint then everything is judged by a white set of standards. How then do we make race irrelevant when white is the only race that IS relevant in today’s society. Whites have the opportunity to work from an individual standpoint right NOW because they are within the acceptable norms.

No we don’t need to look any further than Ron Paul’s own words to see what this man is working towards. Personal pride, irrelevant skin color and victim mentality are all catch phrases of propaganda that racists love to use to show that blacks can’t of better yet won’t do for themselves and since they feel that this is a fact we blacks should be left in the dust. Ron Paul has shown his true colors brightly enough for even Helen Keller to see the writing on the wall. That Ron Paul has no intention of representing anything but white privilege. In fact with the things he said on his site he plans to do his best to not only protect white privilege but to expand it back to its hay day during Jim Crow.

White Entertainment Channels

discovery-channel-hosts.jpg

Some of my favorite shows come on channels like the different Discovery Channels, TLC, Food Network, HGTV and Animal Planet. I just love those Meerkats. Anyway, I was looking at a show that I do watch often called Little People Big World and thought about the fact that this show and pretty much every other on these channels was about whites, featured whites or had white hosts. Now I am sure that they have little people who just happen to be of color, yet by watching this show you would never know it. They not only don’t have any on the show, they don’t chronicle any the way they do others on the show. Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out how a little person of color has to deal with life having two things to be discriminated for, being small and of color?

I know that people wonder why this even makes a difference to me; it does because with all the people out here on these Blogs saying that blacks should stop whining and work hard and they will benefit from society just the same as whites. Now am I to believe that there is NO hard working or interesting blacks out here that might deserve or be interesting enough for a show. So I guess hard work doesn’t help in this case. Since how hard does one have to work in order to fall into a job where you are just telling people about someone else’s dirty jobs, not much I am sure. It seems all one would need is a great personality and an ability to communicate well. And I would hope that people aren’t saying that no other race besides the white one can produce people with these characteristics as that would be extremely condescending.

Are these channels racist or are they just clueless to their black viewers? Yet, when I visit their websites they prominently show advertisements with black faces smiling brightly. So it is clear that they understand they have black viewers so I am forced to acknowledge that they are discriminating. They won’t give us a television show, yet they WILL sell to us indiscriminately. White mindset people won’t understand why this is a big deal and undoubtedly say that there aren’t any shows featuring blacks because the blacks didn’t do anything that would get them a show or we or other minorities just aren’t interesting enough. Interestingly enough I heard this exact argument when another Blogger asked why only white women are shown on network news when missing and a white commenter said that it was because the white women’s stories are so much more interesting than any minority would have. But, in fact half the shows on there could be hosted by anyone, black, white, Asian etc. I watch the show Little People Big World, now were there NO equivalent black family, how about Hispanic little people or Asian little people?

Are there no black or other minority people that own tattoo parlors that they could chronicle? Why don’t they have black people or more minority cook’s who are able to lead a cooking show on the Food network? Unfortunately what is being portrayed to blacks of all ages who watch these channels is that they are not worthy of doing any of these positive shows yet we will undoubtedly be over represented on some trash like Hot ghetto mess or America’s most wanted or some other show that might as well be called Black on Black crime at its finest. And yet here we are, and I am as guilty as the next person, watching these channels, keeping them going by giving them higher ratings with my viewing.

Asking are these channels racist, of course, they are just propagating more white privilege by pushing the white mindset on those in the minority communities. Even if they did put a black person or other minority on these channels it wouldn’t matter since this person would be just another white person with whatever ethnic skin tone they are being portrayed as. What I mean by this is that the black person they pick will be so assimilated that they will seem like a white person in black skin. I understand that this is the only type of blacks who make it on television set aside for the mammies and buffoons that make it in big Hollywood.

Yet as we can all see that these channels are overwhelmingly blatantly white you will still have people telling me and others that racism is dead or that it is pointing out racism that won’t let racism go away. Now I don’t know about them but I don’t think that by me pointing out the lack of minorities on these channels it makes them hire even MORE whites while ignoring the blacks and other minorities until it’s time for advertising. Yet will any of my complaining change anything for these channels? Since these are the same people who are operating on this theory of a color blind society as long as we don’t complain that the only color being represented is white. So until we are all respectful enough to realize that whatever race I identify with is not the ONLY race that matters then maybe we will be able to have all people represented when we sit down with our families and turn on the television.

Will Casey Aldridge Do Time For Jamie Lynn?

jamieandcasey.jpg

 

Jamie Lynn Spears who is sixteen is pregnant what a surprise; OK it isn’t really much of a surprise since look at her family which seems to be a train wreck in progress. Any how I am not writing because I could care less that this dumb little girl is pregnant or not. What I care about is the fact that she is pregnant by her boyfriend of two years Casey Aldridge who is nineteen is the father. Now if I am not mistaken in California where her show is being taped and probably the place where the little tart probably did the deed the age of consent is eighteen.

I am wondering if this fellow will be charged with misdemeanor sex with a minor which is punishable by one year in jail. And if it turns out that he is older than her by more than actual three years he can be charged with a felony and punished to an undefined prison term. Now I only ask this since Genarlow Wilson was jailed for two years and would have been longer if people hadn’t gotten out and protested it. Yet he was seventeen and the girl was fifteen. So it seems to me that this guy needs to get the same treatment since it doesn’t matter if he is a celebrity of not. The law states clearly that if the man is over eighteen and the girl under eighteen that a misdemeanor has been committed and someone has to pay.

And exactly what kind of message is this sending to her young fans who are watching her show on Nickelodeon called Zoey 101. What kind of mother helps her daughter sell the story of her pregnancy to a magazine for one million dollars? The magazine OK will pay Jamie Lynn the million dollars when the baby is born. It seems that the Spears mother was not above helping this daughter to capitalize off of this sad news. Yet look at the mess that older daughter Brittney has made of her life and that of her children and you can pretty much see what kind of parent we are dealing with.

This is just a seriously stupid situation to me since Jamie Lynn is now telling other teen girls that having sex at a young age is wrong and to wait, blah, blah, blah. Yet actions speak louder than words. I would think that she and her family had enough money to get her in to see a doctor and plan for some sort of birth control. The family knew that she was in this “serious” relationship, and I use that term lightly, when the girl started dating this boy when she was thirteen. Why hadn’t they had “the talk” so that this type of thing could be avoided?

Unfortunately I don’t hold much hope for her fan base that will undoubtedly find whatever she has done now cool and want to emulate her or at least be under the impression that having sex now is not as bad an idea as they might have thought. I sure hope that the parents of these girls do some serious damage control and talk with them and give them the information showing why having children in your teens is a BAD idea. All I can do is wish this lost girl good luck since if she is anything like her older sister she is bound to need it.

Yes It’s Ladies Night

 

cocktail499x333.jpg

Some say that discrimination lawsuits are out of control. I happen not to think so, yet the story I have been hearing and reading in the news definitely takes it a bit too far to me as well. A lawyer and his client are suing a night club over ladies night. He claims that the practice is gender discrimination and benefits women to men’s expense. Yet you can also look at this from another perspective and even see how stupid this case is by applying it to other types of benefits.

If you look at it from the point of men might be luckier because of ladies night then the men might not be so offended by this practice. Ladies are less likely to frequent bars as much as men and since the men in these particular bars are there for the women and not male company by offering the women an incentive to come out this benefits the men who now have a plethora of ladies to approach. Also, since the ladies drinks etc are half price and in some cases free, the men that want to buy drinks will do so at with less of an expense than other days. Sure these may be small benefits yet if that particular man gets lucky due to ladies nights will be less likely to hate the discrepancy.

Now is ladies night a discriminatory practice? I guess you can look at it that way. Yet, isn’t men holding a woman’s chair out, holding open a door or putting on her jacket acts of discrimination as well since they are done for women and not men? I don’t think so. Some differences are to be expected in the treatment of men vs. women. I know that the feminists are about to explode right now, yet I do feel that these differences do not amount to anything detrimental or hurtful with respects to men. I personally feel that women should be treated as women and love the gestures associated with being a woman. I like for a man to hold the door or bring me flowers etc.

In order for me to agree with the discrimination charge they would have to show me exactly how the men are being injured by the practice of ladies night. Wasn’t the man going to have to pay for entry and drinks etc anyway so whether the women get in free or at a reduced rate isn’t going to change this. It isn’t going to stop men from getting into the clubs or bar, now if the men are being turned away in order for the women to get into the bar for free then I would agree that the men have been harmed or maligned by the practice.

Now what if like the defense attorney said we start to apply this to other types of situations where one group benefits. I don’t mean such as races, I mean things such as Motel 6 allows kids to stay free, should the elderly sue. Restaurants let kids eat free under a certain age and have special priced menus for those of retirement age. I don’t think that anyone is actually being hurt by these practices. No one is being denied income, housing or medical care with these practices. Also, no one is saying that they won’t serve certain people; they are actually making it easier for some to frequent those businesses. If a family is on a budget they are more likely to go to a place in which their children eat free. Or elderly on a budget probably will frequent places where they get a better deal.

If they want to put an end to ladies night, I could care less since I don’t frequent bars or night clubs. But, I feel that the men who are suing are cutting off their noses to spite their face because if the women no longer frequent the bars and club these same men will be upset that there aren’t a larger number of women to make the night enjoyable. I guess next they will be suing for the right to have women open doors and pull out their chairs as well.

Sprinting To Hell, In Gasoline Underwear

 

minutemen-rally-2-709064.jpg

Actually I was typing out my post on the fact that there is a serious lack of diversity on channels such as the Discovery channel, TLC etc. when I ran across a Blog on my tag surfer called Sprinting to hell. The title of the post that caught my attention was called Reverse Racism and Me. Now you know that this title attracted me like candy to a kid, and I had to read it. My mistake! Anyhow, I made an even bigger mistake of answering to some of the comments made in the post that just made my head spin.

This fellow Josh who is the author of the post says in a comment that he doesn’t promote racism he just doesn’t want to take responsibility for black peoples problems. Yet in the post there are all kinds of statements like this: “My next topic: racism and why I hate your race. Ok, maybe I don’t hate your race, but I’m about sick and tired of hearing about how white people are keeping black people down. We aren’t. Black people in America: you have a culture based on ignorance and violence, so suck it and go to fucking school. And maybe if you have some extra time, learn to speak English. Nope, he doesn’t promote racism he is just pretends to in his Blog.

Now I could care less if Josh or any other person hates or doesn’t hate blacks. I am just tired of the whole “blacks need to take responsibility and do this or that” comments, or the “whites aren’t keeping blacks down” crap. Since we hear these same comments over and over from various white people, we can make a small leap and say yes, whites are keeping blacks down. See racists who may be in positions of power keep blacks down by subscribing to the same descriptions of blacks by Josh, that they are ignorant, violent, lack structured education and don’t speak English. We can safely garner that these Josh minded people probably wouldn’t be hiring a bunch of ignorant, violent, structured education lacking, unable to speak English people, which according to the Josh minded is synonymous with black culture thus black people.

He goes on to talk about blacks telling other blacks to vote for Obama simply because he is black. All I could do was laugh at this one since he says things such as “Can you even imagine if a white republican had said the same exact thing about Fred Thompson? Or fucking Bush for that matter. Forget you political affiliation for one minute and just imagine if Rush Limbaugh has told his listeners to vote for Fred Thompson because they should feel obligated to support their white community over any political views he might have? See what is so funny? Anyway, we all know Rush Limbaugh has said this type of thing, so has Bill O’Reilly and others. Also, since every person running for president has been a white male there really hasn’t been a need for whites to tell each other that. But, I don’t get a sense that Josh cares that the Mormons are telling Mormons to vote Romney who just so happens to be a Mormon. Where is the outrage, oh, and they’re mostly white!

Then he had to go into a stint on Jena 6 and the Duke Lacrosse case, YAWN! Yet with the Duke case he says: “Yeah, you jumped on her side cause she was a poor black victim, but it turns out she was just a trashy whore trying to extort money from the rich white boys from the next college over by playing the race card. I never heard a single word from either one of them after it came forth that she was lying. Tools. I could care less if he thinks they are tools, as they probably are. But, he acts as if this is the epitome of someone lying on people of another race. Did he forget Susan Smith who killed her kids and blamed it on a black man, Charles Stuart shot his pregnant wife in the head and blamed a black man, Jesse Anderson killed his wife stabbed himself and blamed two black men, Robert Harris hired a hit man to kill his fiancé for insurance and blamed it on a black man. There are so many more going all the way back to slavery yet wow we should be all concerned over the lying stripper, how many black men were lynched behind some lying skank, too many to count.

This is the money shot: “Here’s the deal. I’m not sorry your ancestors were enslaved. I’m not sorry your ancestors had to endure the civil rights era. I’m not sorry that shit in America is still tense. I couldn’t give a fuck less about any of the hardships your race has ever endured. Why should I be sorry that my ancestors were far superior to yours? In fact why shouldn’t I be proud of that? The Africans were chucking spears at each other when my people had guns and ships that could sail the Atlantic. My ancestors conquered the globe while yours degenerated into a continent devoured by civil war, and an American culture dominated by ignorance, violence, and the same tribalistic mindset that got you shackled and shipped over here in the first place. What if anything can you even say to this comedy driven rant?

He then goes on to say how he has been the victim of black on white hate crime. WHAAAA! Can you imagine with the crap this guy talks I am not at all surprised that someone put the beat down on him. I know that people shouldn’t commit assault and battery but like Chris Rock said, I can understand. He then ends his post with a bunch of ranting about popping a mouthy bitch in her mouth etc. But, what I find so poetic and funny is that he has a new post in which he talks about: “Tomorrow and Thursday I have court in the morning, and again next week. I have a slew of charges still pending. I may very well be getting locked up tomorrow. If I disappear for a while, that is why. I am not dead yet, I might just be spending a little time in the Wake county Hilton. Yep, blacks are the criminals, and yet none of my family or friends is being treated to the proverbial hot seat in a court room. I guess I can say that I know someone involved in the court system since my sister is an attorney who prosecutes criminals like Josh. Since he has been in the joint (slang for prison, right Josh) he undoubtedly knows he will be surrounded by a bunch of those ignorant, violent, structured education lacking, unable to speak English people and they probably won’t take to kindly to his assessment of them.
