More White Female On Child Crime

Missing Girl

Yet, another incident of white female on child crime and no one is saying that the white on white or white adult on child crime rate is out of control. I wonder just how many white women need to sexually assault a child or kill children before the tidy label such as black on black crime goes into production.

We already know that people go buck wild searching for and talking about missing white children AND women. We saw that with Caylee Anderson and Natalee Holloway and of course they started doing the same thing in California with little 8 year old Sandra Cantu. She went missing March 27th and there were non stop searches and investigations. It is funny but NOT, that little 6 year old Adji Desir got searched for all of about 9 days, deciding that he was probably just hiding from the authorities.

They didn’t even issue an Amber alert stating that he probably wasn’t abducted. But, will call out the national guard for one little missing white girl. And then go on and on about the story for years. Now here we have a little girl abducted by her freaking Sunday school teacher Melissa Huckaby, killed and stuffed inside of the ladies suitcase and thrown in a lake. And someone wants to tell me about this perceived propensity for violence of black people. Give me a freaking break.

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.

Toys To Die For

ticklemeelmo.jpg

Well I guess the importing; outsourcing pain has come home to roost so to speak. Recalls of our children’s toys are on the rise. It seems that toys coming in from China are tainted to say the least. Lead had been the big worry but now your kids might be ingesting the date rape drug GHB. What’s next we will have an influx of wonder woman dolls that are the heroin instead of heroine. The only people we have to blame are ourselves for allowing our lawmakers to sanction exporting all of our manufacturing to China and elsewhere.

Yet this is not a phenomenon that will happen over and over since we are in such a consumer driven society. We are out buying our children every little bobble that catches their eye. Never has society as a whole been so seduced by materialism. And it is this materialism that is making our kids sick, brain damaged and dead. The amount of name brand garbage that is pushed on kids from the moment they are old enough to set eyes on the television numbers in the millions. From Dora the Explorer to Elmo, our kids are bombarded like being in a game of dodge ball.

All I see and hear from magazines and mothering shows is everything that you need to buy for your baby, child, pre-teen, teen and young adult. I receive a popular baby magazine and one of the feature stories is baby must haves. It is just a large advertisement for all the unnecessary items that all the different companies are pushing. Yet the one thing that you don’t see is stories that feature items made in the US because that would be few.

The latest toy recall is the Aqua Dots which allows kids to stick dots together using water making fun shapes and pictures. Well it seems that if the kid ingests the Aqua Dots they will turn into GHB through a weird chemical reaction in the body. The children that have ingested these have either gone into a coma or died. The list for these recalled toys is probably longer than Santa Claus’s list. There are all manners of toys on the list from baby beds due to lead to older kids building sets.

Is our relationship with the Chinese toy manufacturers more important than our children that our own government won’t shut this obvious hazardous situation down? Because it seems to me that these companies who have their manufacturing going on over seas should be getting fined. But, I have always felt that if a company wants to bypass American workers so they can go cheap and dangerous they should be fined to bring that crap back into the country. I understand that this is extremely controversial but we are effectively un-employing American’s in order to maximize profits.

Dog The Black Hater

duanechapman.jpg

Duane Chapman also known as Dog the Bounty Hunter apologized for the repeated use of the dreaded N word in a tirade that was sent to the National Enquirer. He was taped urging his son to dump his Black girlfriend worrying that she would spill the beans on him and his firm’s use of the N word to whom else but the National Enquirer. He now comes out and apologizes for the whole shebang. People should take his apology with a grain of salt and know that from the crap he said, he is not at all sorry, just sorry that his stupid ass got caught!

I am no longer shocked by anything that these racists say or do anymore. There is an ever growing trend in the media right now to talk about racism and how horrible it is, yet these media conglomerations and their parent companies are just more of the problems that subjugate Blacks with their hiring practices and promotion of bigoted racists. Dog didn’t promote himself up the television ladder nor did people such as Michael Richards, Don Imus or Ann Coulter plus whomever else you can name in the media. How can anyone be naïve enough to not realize that this type of behavior has been going on since we were dragged here in chains? It has not been limited to entertainment, we have scientist, doctors and presidents, and in fact it is in all facets of our government.

Duane the dog talks about how he has the utmost respect for Blacks. Uh huh, that is why he calls us all niggers, yep right. So then I guess Hitler only had the utmost respect for Jews when he referred to them as Kikes and decided to put them in concentration camps. Why is it that as soon as the racist is ousted and caught in the act they act as if the people that they are subjugating are somehow being held in high regard? This is absurd! What will happen after this, the answer is nothing of course. Dog will of course continue his show and if not you will have a bunch of White people to run to his defense and cry freedom of speech etc., then find a way to get him reinstated. They will do just what they did with that racist Don Imus, yet again showing their blatant disdain for Blacks and the subjugation that they themselves are helping to propagate.

What else can be said about what is happening, actually what has been happening forever in this country? We are divided and will continue to be so as long as one set of people holds all the power all the while subjugating the ones who don’t. But, until the subjugated wake up and realize “hey, I’m being subjugated over here” nothing will really be done about it. It is just like in the times of slavery, half the people will always see things the slave master’s way and you still here the same rhetoric out of our Black brothers and sisters, “we can’t leave massa, where we gone go that’s better than this?” Well it seems we will never know until we all wake up work together to get there.

Baby Born With Blood Alcohol Level Of .17

tillthemorning.jpg

Are people getting dumber or am I just getting more jaded? Sherri J. Lohnstein, 34 of Foley, Missouri is back in court today to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter by drinking so much that her baby girl who she named Zreanna, was pronounced dead shortly after birth. The baby had a blood alcohol level of .17; Sherri had a blood alcohol level of .18 while the legal limit in Missouri is .08. Now this is a crying shame. I have no sympathy, mercy or whatever for people who make a choice to take drugs and alcohol thus killing their babies. I don’t think I even agree with the involuntary manslaughter charge, hell she knew full well that she should not be out getting extremely drunk while with child. I feel that this is just another in a long line of parents who are using stupidity as an excuse for the reasons they have injured or killed their children.

According to Dr. Mary Case, St. Charles County medical examiner, the determination for the baby’s death had been caused by acute intoxication. At the level that she and the baby were intoxicated she had to have been consuming some sort of hard liquor in which she drank at least 6 drinks over the course of about 3 to 4 hours according to the dui laws calculator. So this crazy mom was doing some serious drinking and I am sorry she knew full well that she was pregnant as she was in her third trimester of pregnancy. So she has no excuse and I don’t even want to hear the fact that she may have been an alcoholic etc. It doesn’t matter if you are an alcoholic get help or don’t get pregnant and if you do then get the help you need.

She posted bond and acting on her own, Lohnstein told Circuit Judge Nancy Schneider on Aug. 28 that she planned to plead guilty in exchange for a five-year prison sentence under an agreement with prosecutors. But the judge had the public defenders office to represent her even though they had previously withdrawn as counsel. She broke into tears in the court room, but I think that she should have been this thoughtful before she decided to go out and get hammered while pregnant. I hope they sincerely throw the book at this woman and hopefully she will be lesson to the next mother thinking about hitting the party scene. But, we all know that the next set of idiots coming behind her won’t learn a thing, because it seems that there is a never ending flow of dumb parents flocking in to do whatever it takes to make them ‘the dumbest’.

OJ Simpson What Else Can I Say

oj_simpson_narrowweb__300x4720.jpg

As I am watching CNN all I can think about is why OJ Simpson doesn’t just go hide in a cave somewhere. Maybe he can hide out with Bin Laden it seems no one can find him and that would be exactly what the doctor ordered. I am just sick to death of seeing, hearing and just knowing anything about this idiot. He is becoming as bumbling and stupid as Homer Simpson, I wonder if they are related. But, at least Homer has some redeeming qualities.

Well anyway the story goes that OJ somehow knew that these fellows were staying in the Palace Station Casino, who had some memorabilia of his that included his Hall of Fame certificate and a picture of the running back with J. Edgar Hoover. He went there with some guys he just met at a wedding reception cocktail party to go and take what he says was his. The room had a few collectors in it including Alfred Beardsley who had testified in OJ’s civil trial. Mr. Beardsley said that the story is pretty much as OJ tells it except there were guns in which Simpson said, “I didn’t see anybody with any guns.”

Is this guy for real? He knows damn well that after he didn’t get convicted of allegedly murdering his wife and waiter Ron Goldman that the public, police, the victims families and hell only knows who else would love to see this bumbling idiot in prison, jail or even dead. He just continues to put himself in the weirdest and stupidest situations I have ever seen. By the way he acts you would think he was a 15 year old teenager who doesn’t have much life experience and continues to make bad judgments. A friend says that he continues to want to be a player totally involved in the high life even though those days are done. There he is on all the news programs cheesing for all to see just like a big ole stupid looking joker. He has come out with a stupid book that people are saying sounds like a confession hidden behind a “what if.”

Now I don’t proclaim to know whether this idiot did any of the things that he is accused of from murder to robbery but I do know that his stupidity makes my skin crawl. I can only take stupidity in small doses which I get plenty of just from daily life. OJ is constantly giving me a stupid overload. All I can say is please OJ I need a break from your idiotic behavior, its bad enough that I still have Paris, Brittany, Nicole and Lindsay. For whatever reason it is easier for me to ignore those idiots’ antics but OJ, there is just something about that man that makes it hard to deal with. I think it’s the fact that he used the Black communities hope for him by pathetically pandering to our sense of racial solidarity during his trial and no sooner than he got off he went right back to the stupidity that got him in that situation.

So please OJ for the love of whatever just leave us all alone and keep to your self. Find a personal brain like Bush so that you won’t have to ever do any thinking which at this time doesn’t really seem to be a problem.

I’m Too Sexy For The Plane

kyla-ebbert-2.jpg

Southwest Airlines lectured 23 yr old Kyla Ebbert on dressing appropriately to fly their friendly skies. She was wearing an ultra mini jean skirt, a tank top with a small shrug sweater which accentuated the bust. Now a lot of the people on the plane with families apparently started complaining to the flight attendants who then asked her to pull her skirt up and tank top down was given a blanket and allowed to fly on to her destination. Now on CNN a lot of people wrote in to say that it was ok for her to dress in this manner and that the airlines should be ashamed of themselves. I am the last person to agree that people shouldn’t be able to dress like they want. Yet, the same people who are so enamored with this ladies dress are gung ho to have the young baggy pants wearing fellows be fined for their style choice.

Now I think that after seeing the young lady wearing this outfit during her morning news interview it was quite obvious why she was being talked to about her clothes. After she sat down on the set, in the same manner she said she sat on the plane, they actually had to have her crotch area pixilated because the skirt covered nothing. Now she had an aisle seat and I think the folks on the plane didn’t want their children nor themselves (maybe some men did) staring at her crotch as they walk back from the bathroom etc. I think this whole thing is a stupid joke. She says that she held herself together while on the flight but the minute she was off the plane she supposedly lost it calling her mother. She sent her mother pictures of her outfit that she had taken with her camera phone. She wanted to make sure she was dressed appropriately. Michelle Ebbert, her mother was appalled by the actions of the airlines stating that “My daughter is young, tall, blond and beautiful and she is both envied and complimented on her appearance. She dresses provocatively, as do 99 percent of 23-year-old girls who can. But they were out of line.”

Southwest said in a letter sent to the mother Michelle Ebbert that “it was within its rights to remove a passenger “whose clothing is lewd, obscene or patently offensive” to ensure the comfort of children and “adults with heightened sensitivities.” I don’t know what I find more ridiculous the fact that the airline felt compelled to act on her clothes or the young lady getting ready to sue the airline or that she didn’t see a problem with her crotch showing on an airline flight. Yes she is planning to sue the airline due to making her feel bad when they chastised her about her choice of dress. That’s right kaching; kaching let the cash register ring anytime someone makes you feel bad. Well this stupid girl, the airline and CNN is making ME feel bad, so should I go and start my plans to sue them all. I am sorry this is such a stupid story, which is probably why we are seeing it everywhere. I know if it is so stupid why are you writing about it Black Sentinel? Well because when they started touting that they were going to pass a law so they could fine people for wearing saggy pants, it was being hailed as something that would help those young kids in the ghetto. Yet let some blonde dingbat wear crotch flashing skirts and what’s the big deal, she’s young and beautiful, this is what beautiful people do, show off their bodies. Well maybe those kids in the ghetto think they and their boxer shorts are beautiful and so shouldn’t we cut them some slack as well?

What is the difference, I see baggy pants sporting boxer short covered asses or I see skimpy mini skirts sporting panty covered crotches. I don’t see any difference they are both showing way more than I want to see. So I guess Southwest was only helping the public like our local governments are trying to do with the saggy pants bills that are popping up everywhere. But the question is do you have the right to wear what you want whether it offends people or not? And does the establishment have the right to stop you if too many patrons complain? Well isn’t it the same thing as being asked to leave Applebee’s restaurant for breastfeeding even though she did it while under a blanket so no one “actually” saw anything but they just “knew” what she was doing? Hey it’s an eatery and the baby was eating, so what’s the problem. It just seems to me that we are taking this “I want control over my neighbor” crap a little too far. I feel that she should have been left alone with her crotchety skirt, the baggy pants boxer showing wearers should be left alone and the breastfeeding lady should be left alone and whoever doing whatever that is not illegal, hey leave them alone. Why is it that everyone feels entitled to push their morals, values, likes, dislikes on others? Yes I know that it goes both ways and that those with the pants, skirts and breasts are also pushing as well. So what can we do? How about we just mind our own businesses and if we don’t like it don’t look at it. I am pretty sure this will come back to bite me in the ass later when I see something that just bugs the hell out of me. Well I will just have to cross Hypocrite Bridge when I come to it. So in the meantime have fun showing whatever you feel comfortable showing.

Quiet Racism

racism2.jpg

Jay Bookman a writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote an article that caught my eye recently, titled “Even quiet racism can drive everyone a little crazy.” Now as I started reading I was thinking, hey this guy might get it, somewhat. But as I read on, no doubt he started to lose me bit by bit. It starts off with him telling us about an RV trip he took to the Masters tournament where he was with a large group of white businessmen. He says, “They were introduced as prominent businessmen in their hometown, and as we inched our way through traffic, I was astonished when they began passing time by telling each other jokes about black people — although “black people” wasn’t the term they used — of a crudeness I hadn’t heard since childhood.” Now I get it that he was shocked by the jokes and whatever, but what I caught onto immediately was that no where in this piece did he say that he opposed what they were saying or that he told them this was unacceptable, he just sat there and listened or turned a blind eye to it, maybe even laughed along as to not be an outcast.

Now I am not saying that he needed to “be” the voice for a community that he is not even a member of but, he could have at least pointed out to them their blatant disgusting game was inappropriate. Anyway this wasn’t my main beef with the report. I was more disgusted that he goes on in his opinion to start and talk about how just because there may seem to be silent racism a Black will somehow see racism where NONE exists. He states that “Conversely, it also means that some black people will sense racism at work even in cases when it probably doesn’t exist. Its nebulous nature also means that people can cynically claim themselves to be victims of racism when the real cause of their problems is their own stupidity or criminality.” If he is on a bus with all these so called “prominent business men” who I am assuming from that title run and own businesses, wouldn’t he also conclude that from his own observations of their behavior these men are propagating racism in the workplace as well? How can they look at a person as inferior and make jokes about them one day then the next day at work they see them as equal by hiring them, giving them a safe comfortable work environment and treating them with the same respect as they do their white staff.

So why then is it so far fetched that more than likely the cause “IS” racism and not just over-sensitive Blacks or our own “stupidity or criminality. I do agree with some of his statements about people being responsible and the like, because yes anyone committing crimes need to take responsibility for their individual actions, but like anything that is done, it’s not happening in a vacuum. So I would like to look at the why they did it versus just what did they do. Why are these people acting in this manner, what makes Black communities have poor housing, education, health care, and employment? And could this be the “why” that we’re looking for?

He also makes reference to how Blacks are judged according to what any member of the group does, not on individual merit and I have to say kudos for that one. Because that has long been a pet peeve of mine as to why we need to defend ourselves as being an upstanding person because one Black does something to the contrary, yet whites can do a wrong and it doesn’t reflect on them as a community. Now unfortunately he goes downhill again with this statement “That sense of group responsibility — imposed from the outside — is itself a form of racism, far more subtle than racial jokes but toxic nonetheless. There’s no cure for it — it will exist as long as racism exists. But by acknowledging and discussing its existence, we can rob it of some of its power.”

I’m sorry but judging all Blacks by the actions of a few and those business men making racist jokes are toxic yes, but subtle, I don’t think so and let’s look at the big picture here. Isn’t the fact that they find it funny, acceptable and morally not a problem lend itself to the larger problem of Racism? These men are the very reason why so many Blacks are not being offered the jobs they deserve, the housing they deserve, the health care they deserve or the education they deserve. So to look at these men as toxic but subtle is a misnomer when they are far more than that. They are just a small peek at the type of adversity that awaits Blacks who dare to approach someone like them.

Mr. Bookman made some good points but then turned around and ruined the momentum by simplifying and falling back on poor old propaganda type thinking. This type of thinking is part of the reasons that constantly talking about racism doesn’t rob it of any of its power. We can talk until all of our heads pop off and things won’t change until we Blacks as a community decide to remove the control that they (White community) have over us and our image. We can only do this by ending our co-dependency relationship. I am not talking about some separatist movement per se, but I am talking about moving back to and building up our communities. Nice thought but I don’t hold out much hope of this taking place, which means that the least we can do is to resist and help our children resist the propaganda.

Larry Craig Lynched Twice Ben Stein Says

 

larrycraigstall.jpg

Ben Stein is in the news today making comments in support for Senator Craig. He states “Senator Craig has been the victim of a police lynching. A party that believes in individual rights should be rallying to his defense, not making him walk the plank.” Now I am a fully on board when someone is “really” being abused by the police, but come on, Lynching! That is so condescending to the thousands of Black men who were lynched in the name of racial hatred. I am appalled that Mr. Stein feels it is appropriate to use a term that was born out of horrible circumstances to describe something so freaking trivial. Next Ben will swear that the poor Senators who he feels are being unfairly judged by their obvious unsuitable behavior are now victims of some undercover gay senator holocaust or maybe genocide. Please Ben your killing me.

Then to say “a party that believes in individual rights… What fantasy land are Ben and Senator Craig living in that he was a victim of anything other than his closeted man lust. The Republican Party doesn’t care for anyone’s individual rights; well maybe that of big business, but if they did why then, do we have so many Black men such as Sean Bell being gun down by the police in a hail of fifty bullets. Now that is what I call a police lynching and where was the Republican Party to protect these victims who are the constituents under their supposed protection. What reason does the Republican Party as well as the Democrats get behind for these blatant cases of “real” lynching, well it was due to “contagious shooting,” yep that crap actually flies with them. Maybe this is why the government took so long to get around to doing something about the people who were suffering after hurricane Katrina. They were too busy trolling around in men’s restrooms and parks or underage chat rooms.

I don’t understand Ben Stein’s grievance he says “Here’s the deal: Senator Craig went into a men’s room at the Twin Cities airport. He entered a lavatory stall. He tapped his foot. He may or may not have reached his hand down under the lavatory partition to pick up a piece of paper or to make a signal. That’s it. That’s the whole thing. There was no sex act of any kind.” Well I don’t think that cops are supposed to engage in a sex act with the perpetrator in order to ascertain that he should be arrested for “soliciting” sex from the officer. I think it is the soliciting part that gives that fact away; which from what “my” dictionary says is to ask somebody for something or to offer sex for money. Now he did a combination of the two.

Ben also states that “If a police officer can wreck a man’s career over this trifle, then we might as well not have a Constitution or a Bill of Rights.” Uh, what? For one thing this statement would assume that the police officer knew that the man in the other stall was Senator Craig and he then put his Machiavellian plan into the works grabbing the Senator and so began to put the screws in. Then you also have to wonder if this cop was so gung ho on screwing up the man’s career why then didn’t he run this information right to the press after the arrest? Wouldn’t that do more to ruin his career than to sit back in the shadows doing his job (and I am no fan of cops) and let the newspaper come upon the information two months later.

Wow, that cop was really hell bent on getting Craig alright. Come on Ben, I mean when Sean Bell was killed the cop claims they made eye contact and that was enough for him to know that Sean knew that he was a cop. Now if that was this officers story that he looked at him and somehow knew that the Senator wanted sex, I would be right there with you guys, but he went through a whole ritual of how you approach someone for a gay tryst. I mean would you come to a guy’s rescue that saw a lady on the street, walks up to her and says hey pssst, then pulls out a twenty dollar bill and waives it at her. She pulls out a badge and waives it at him. Would Mr. Stein claim that this man should be left alone since there wasn’t any sexual contact? Now Ben is this a modern day lynching of that poor man who is probably going to lose his wife, family, job, a gob of money and maybe his freedom? I think not, she didn’t force him to solicit, so I guess he, you and definitely Senator Craig should do what you always want everyone else to do and take responsibility for your own actions.
