Real Civil Rights leaders would be appalled to see…
A black or white person, now dead, who lived during the civil-rights struggles of the 1930s, ’40s or ’50s, might very well be appalled and disgusted by black behavior accepted today. Yesteryear, it was the Klan or White Citizens Council who showed up at polling places to intimidate black voters. During the 2008 elections, it was the New Black Panthers who showed up at a Philadelphia polling place to intimidate white voters and tell them, “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” What’s worse is the U.S. Department of Justice has decided not to prosecute.
Black intimidation of voters, to my knowledge, is rare, but black intimidation of Asians is not. Recent reports out of Philadelphia and San Francisco tell of black students beating up Asian students. The Asian-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, in the wake of serious black-on-Asian violence at South Philadelphia High School, charged the district with “deliberate indifference” to the harassment of Asian students and with “intentional disregard” for their welfare.
A white Charleston, S.C., teacher frequently complained of black students calling her: white b—h, white m—–f—–, white c— and white ho. Most people would judge that to be racism and demand it to end. Charleston school officials told the teacher this racially charged profanity was simply part of the students’ culture, and, if she couldn’t handle it, she was in the wrong school. The teacher brought a harassment suit, and the school district settled out of court for $200,000.
What about black youngsters who hit the books and study after school instead of hitting the streets? Sometimes they are ridiculed as being incog-negro or acting white, and the ridicule is often accompanied with life-threatening physical violence. Many blacks, particularly black males, have arrived at the devastating conclusion that academic excellence is a betrayal of their black identity.
This treatment is unconscionable! Having any other student or thug’s threatening another student for doing what is true, proper, and right for themselves — as for us, this is intolerable and should carry a stiff penalty; moreover, what can we say about the policing of this behavior. Basically folks this is killing students and committing genocide.
Intellectuals and political hustlers who blame the plight of so many blacks on poverty, discrimination and the “legacy of slavery” are complicit in the socioeconomic and moral decay. But as Booker T. Washington suggested, “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
As much as I would love to take credit for this well-written masterpiece, I believe I have two or three short paragraph — but I sincerely cannot. Let’s give it up for Walter Williams who wrote this for World Net Daily. A huge hat tip to Mr. Williams!
