To all I love and those reading this article: I really struggled to center it on the truth.
These two phrases are not new: institutional and systemic racism (misquoted as “systematic” sometimes), return to the political landscape, it seems, every 2 or 4 years. Coincident with on and off year elections.
But, to Matt, Emily, Niki, Dani, Jorge, JoshMatt, Liz, Laura, Josh, Amanda and others, plus the 60s and 70s generations, i love you deeply and ask that you don’t shoulder a burden that is NOT yours. Please read with an open mind and respond with your comments.
In the real, your world,
words have meanings; phrases can control thoughts and sometimes, whole continents. First let’s take a look at what this is about:
Wiki calls it “institutional racism” with its roots going back to 1967. “Institutional/systemic racism is a form of racism that is embedded as normal practice within society or an organisation. It can lead to such issues as discrimination in criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power and education, among other issues.” Interesting definitions…
The term “institutional racism” was first coined in 1967 by Stokely Carmichael and Charles V. Hamilton in Black Power: The Politics of Liberation.
Carmichael and Hamilton wrote that while individual racism is often identifiable because of its overt nature, institutional racism is less perceptible because of its “less overt, far more subtle” nature. Institutional racism “originates in the operation of established and respected forces in the society, and thus receives far less public condemnation than [individual racism]”.
Institutional racism was defined by Sir William Macpherson in the UK’s Lawrence report (1999) as: “The collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture, or ethnic origin. It can be seen or detected in processes, attitudes and behaviour that amount to discrimination through prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness and racist stereotyping which disadvantage minority ethnic people” End of definition. So it can be white, Mexican, black supremacy?
This applies racism as a pervasive, almost viral aspect of everything in our culture.
Two definitions to consider: “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.”
And another: “the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another.”
Like the National Socialist party in Germany, the dynastic hegemony of pure Chinese blood, maybe the first 100 years past the Declaration in Southern Democrat states where most of the plantation slaves worked for the most minimum of minimum wages: zip, zero, nada. Sadly, you can always find someone or something to hate, but there is a solution.
But, what do you think of a black billionaire lecturing you about “white privilege” and “whiteness”? Yes, Oprah is doing this to my personal snicker.
ALWAYS remember Len’s truth#1 on interpersonal relationships:
“Everyone can book you on their heavy guilt trip. But, YOU must pick up your baggage and step off the train platform and buy the ticket to your own self-loathing”
I know you and I know this ISN’T you.
My definition of race, may not match yours, but it has a distinct scientific and emotional basis:
There is ONE human race.
One set of parents, whether Adam and Eve or anthropologist Dr Louis Leakey’s Mesopotamian first couple, forcing us to realize we are members of the same family though in different groupings, cultures and countries.
Some, involve distinct language and culture components; for example, Matt and Josh’s paternal great grandparents spoke little English, living with Irene Maciejczyk, in the Polish “ghetto” of central Chicago. BTW, a “ghetto” is not a perjorative or “poor” term.
Jorge’s family is from Colombia, Maryann Beckman’s family from Sri Lanka, Mary Beckman, named for Our Lady of Guadalupe Mary born on Dec 12th is from Poland and Germany, Mary Beckman’s family Irish and Italian from Torrance. Colorado’s Mary Beckman from Anaheim. That’s a lot of Mary Beckmans. But EACH has a different life experience and viewpoints, but the same name.
We speak 350 languages in America, where we have a high rate of “inter-racial” marriage, and our cultures & sub cultures embody a lot of interesting things. But, there was no first Polish couple, or first Colombian couple or even a black or Chinese “first couple”. Certainly no Negroid or Antarctican prime couple.
We share DNA with about 9 billion other humans on this 3rd rock from the sun. So, how do we ferret out “racism” with all the intermarrying and emigration sources.
Did you know this: “The United States has more immigrants than any other country in the world. Today, more than 44 million people living in the U.S. were born in another country, accounting for about one-fifth of the world’s migrants in 2017. The population of immigrants is also very diverse, with just about every country in the world represented among U.S. immigrants.
So America is RACIST? Just asking! Ever hear the term from Ferguson: “Hands UP, don’t shoot?!” Did it happen and by whom?
Can we agree EVERY human being is precious and unique, valuable to someone and worthy of joy, for at least the first trillion years of eternity? Or as Buzz Lightyear puts it: infinity and beyond! From a book on quotes, I pray we approach this with a spirit of hope:
Proverbs 15 v 1 “A mild answer turns back wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. 2The tongue of the wise pours out knowledge, but the mouth of fools spews folly.
3The eyes of the LORD are in every place,keeping watch on the evil and the good. 4A soothing tongue is a tree of life,but a perverse one breaks the spirit.
5The fool spurns a father’s instruction,but whoever heeds reproof is prudent.” And a mother’s instruction as well.
Since we are all family in certain regards, I contend there is no genetic or institutional racism, per se, (like the NYTimes 1619 project portends) but there ARE racists among us. However, rarely are their large “Rs” tatooed on racists’ foreheads. There are no Spock mind melds yet and the thought police don’t exist though not for trying.
There, also, are a lot of racism pot stirrers.
Niki, if you walked out of your beautiful home and knocked on the house across the street, and asked: “How racist are you, neighbor?“…everyone would agree that is a loaded question. You could ask “ARE you racist?”. Again, a blank stare from your neighbor. You might conclude Neighbor Mary or her hubby Dick are not racists, but based on what? You can’t read her mind; even moreso, can’t read her heart. Niki, let your favorite Uncle Len, whom Dani calls “boomer”, relieve you of guilt: you are NOT racist. But you ARE human.
We all are. Our instincts are based on our life histories and viewpoints developed over time; we all enter through the birth canal with a blank mass of tissue between our ears.
Niki, I don’t believe you hate someone because they are short, ugly, fat, smart, handsome or even Chinese or black. “Hating” a whole class of humans (there is only ONE race but different groupings of similar characteristic people) honestly, makes the hater, not the object or hatees, ignorant fools. The hater comes across as a toddler destroying the living room and then moving on to the kitchen: no rhyme or reason.
That book of wise quotes: “the tongue of the wise pours out knowledge, but the mouth of fools spews folly.”
It is better to be calm and hopeful, when talking with another. There are waaay too many fools these days, and a shortage of the wise it seems. In a recent book club zooMeet, the term “collectivist” or “collective” came up.
One world system that has always failed, killed 100 million born people in the 20th century: communism or socialism. Venezuela should be one of the richest countries on earth with its storehouse of natural resources (like oil reserves etc), but it is the latest and best proof that socialism destroys ALL the individuals, the entrepreneurs and the poor. Marxism demands no individual initiative, and ruins hearts and minds. There is ALWAYS the top 1%, whether in a prosperous free enterprise capitalist republic like the USA or Soviet Russia and the Soviet bloc where misery merchants ruled the roost. What has this to do with racism in America? You’ll see soon.
Let’s say Niki and Jorge want to search for more racism, systematically, and they descend from the mountain top, over to Main, Horsetown USA, looking for that group of “racists” to spray an R on their foreheads to warn others we have racists in our community. Better still, you go to a city meeting called a council, trying to root out the virus of systemic racism…
Do you really believe you can be the thought police? If you want to look for racism, how about 100, 14, 5?
On Father’s day 2020 weekend. In Chicago, 100 shot, 14 dead, 5 children. Mainly black on black. Is that racism or is only fragile whites racists? Can a melanin rich person be racist.
Where the gunmen, mainly black, just victims of a racism virus blanketing America? Are they responsible for their actions? If racism is the killing of young black men, count Chicago as a major hub of such racism; but to conclude every pore of the American psyche is “racist” is ignorance. Let’s put meat to the bones.
DaDay weekend, a dad lost his 13 year old daughter while she watched TV. A 3 year old was shot next to his dad, though dad won’t cooperate with Windy City police.
This is a big problem of ending blacks in the main discriminating against other blacks with guns. Those systemic racist Chicago cops were busy while dads got ties, saving lives, covering bleeding wounds, racing against time to keep black teens alive.
Hate the cops all you want, but realize, in most of the inner Democrat run cities, no one talks after the shots ring out.
Victims if alive; witnesses or the victim’s family, fear reprisal so tons of black on black crimes go unsolved. Chauvin murdering George Floyd? Solved within 4 days. We knew there was bad human blood between the two, working as bouncers in a Chicago club; Chavin murdered him. Michael Brown, “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” now an urban legend about a Blindsided peaceful giant. He was not.
I notice when Niki asked for a BLM support signature, she assumes racism is non-blacks against blacks. Or more threatening, whites against blacks.
But in the real world, it ain’t so. If you look at BLM’s mission statement and their actions, the top BLM leaders believe black is MORE important than non-black. Also, how do you define “people of color?” Is everyone from Africa black? If an Afrikaaner marries an Asiatic, what do you have?
Walk around South Africa and see a bunch of white Africans; well, maybe less and less since the black majority has exercised their democratic status and taken over Arikaaner’s owned farms, land and businesses. Similar to rioters in Portland, Seattle (Antifastan), etc.
Black or any color slavery didn’t originate in 1619, as ex VP Kaine says it; in fact, blacks enslaved blacks and whites, just as the Southern Democrats mainly of white complexion owned mainly blacks. Today, there are 10 countries that engage in major slavery, as well as too many to count doing human trafficking.
Is that “racist?” Briana Hager has a focus on human trafficked slaves, sex slaves. Slavery is simply owning or oppressing another human: but instead of worrying about how racist we are, or dig out the Negrometer to make sure there are 13 blacks in every 100 residents, or 63 whites, 18 Hispanics etc., why not treat the NEXT human you meet or talk to as part of the real collective: the ONE human race.
In Chicago, you have the multi racial police force doing triage on a dying city. Does anyone hold the Chi mayor or councilmembers accountable? No, its not you or me, but that systemic racist behind the NIMBY tree. Especially in cities controlled at all levels for decades by the party of slavery founded in 1854.
Discrimination is a fascinating word; epidemiologists have discovered the Plague of Xi virus DOES discriminate ie is more virulent for blacks than other cultures or families.
As that brain trust, Mayor Warren Wilhelm DiBlasio at the NYC Helm puts it: “the Virus discriminates because our nation discriminates.” Stupid is as stupid does. I wonder if the current mayor ever took science? Former mayor Rudy just gagged as all successful former NYC mayors should.
Sadly, the great city of NYC has greater problems than racism or the Plague of Xi virus; it is a systematically dying city. People are fleeing it because of out of control tax raises, poor city services, lousy support for the cops, endemic lawlessness and disorder and many other factors. Like with BLM, Inc., the NYC leadership is terribly wanting.
Again, am I racist? This dad of 11 who loves his real estate clients and family, who worked for the last 50 years, at times 3 jobs to raise 11 awesome kids (and awesome nieces and nephews put up with him along the way), is he racist? Frankly, I don’t have time to be racist nor want to cut my life shorter because of seminal hate: hate OF ANY KIND against another causes early life loss. I can prove it.
SOLUTIONS ARE AT YOUR FINGER TIPS. SIMPLE METHODS: BKIND 4Give B4Given Help1some1-2day. More if you can.
Healing perceived viral racism is solved one person to person encounter at a time. If Josh&Maryann, Dani&Justin Matt&Emily Matt&Misty walked around their cities, I’ll bet the same 10 $2 Freedom Reparation Bills, you would NOT see any forehead Rs. Even in Houston, where Floyd was buried, Brian and Amanda would not see many blood red R’s in Missouri City, Texas.
Every sentient human, and most animals, discriminate routinely. We choose certain paths, foods, lifestyles because, well, we are human AND free to do so. Except in certain circles where black lives matter more than non black. Sanger of PP fame had special words for the Negro, but then, let’s not let the facts get in the way of the lie..
But, I will go out on a limb and say this: we have racists among us but we are NOT a systemic racist country. Maybe, certain regions or ages or ? may be more inclined to not like certain people, but this is the province of stupid when done for ignorant reasons. Again, let me slip you a secret: there is ONE HUMAN RACE. One set of parents going back to the first parents we call Adam & Eve. What did Niki and Jorge find out at the Norco council meet? Red “R”s on the forehead of half the council? Maybe 27% of the audience? Nope. But you want real examples of institutional racism. Here goes.
Perfect examples of institutional and systematic racism
is this: You all know an industry and corporate entity that is 70% white. is that fair? Should Congress step in? It is the National Farmocological Licensing company.
Meanwhile, per the US Census, blacks make up 13.3% currently, though declining due to Chicago black on black genocide and 20 million black abortion kills over 4 decades.
Comment below if you think a well known corporation that has 70% white is racist, even though the Negrometer and Whiteometer census says we are 63% white and 13% black. What say you?
Then, continuing in my research, I discovered another one that was WORSE.
Checking with it’s HR department, it has 89 black and 403 white employees, most of whom make over a million dollars a year!l. Blatantly white supremacist one might think: that’s a 81% white to 19% black ratio. Now, granted if you take out the Negrometer, 19% black employees exceeds the 13.3% Census count. But is THIS fair? This company seems elitist. The Nebraska Bailing Association should face the EEOC, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and be shut down?
Confession readers: I lied
Yes, blacks make up 13% and whites 63% of the population in a country where equal opportunity NOT equal results is guaranteed. For the equal results, you need to follow the mantra: “From each according to his ability to each according to his need”. Is this American or the Bible? No, it is Karl Marx, the founder of atheistic Communism & socialism that killed 100 million poor humans last century. And seems to tantalize the indoctrinated wandering off our elite college campi these days looking for purpose.
The Nebraska Bailing Association last year was actually the NBA. The National Basketball Association was comprised of 403 blacks and 89 NON blacks/whites. Yes, 81% black though 13% of the USA population. Isn’t that total racism? Where’s the civil righters and the EEOC for this blatant discrimination? Don’t give me that drivel that “white men can’t jump!” So what!
That less racist group, the National Farmocological Licensing co. is the NFL: the National Football League. I left out the MLB, baseball, but seeing millionaires of all these privileged athletic teams taking a knee for the BLM Marxist organization and/or Antifa, another anarchist grouping, is sick. If these majority black NBA or NFL want to truly help “racism” or “blacks”, why not do direct mentoring of groups of black gangbangers in South Central LA, south side of Chicago, the inner city of NYC with its 51 abortion clinics that kill off nine times as many black babies as non black.
HOW do you define “people of color?” 50% black like current president in the shadows Obama? Must you be 100% black or 100% white to become a separate “race”. Last science class on anatomy or genetics i took showed we ALL have the same deoxyribonucleic acid in our cells.
Sorry about pranking you! Not really, just wanted you to use your three pounds of dendrites to realize ALL of us make mistakes but you live in the MOST post racist country on earth. We invested 600,000 grey and blue lives in the Civil War to move along the Constitutionally guaranteed equal right of life, liberty and property/pursuit of happiness along the path of racial harmony. 56 people of colorfully white males signed and sacrificed their fortunes, their families even their lives for a noble purpose and new nation. We all rest on the shoulders of our parents and grandparents; all of us.
Yet, it seems people have automatic bias that poor blacks are still on plantations (in fact, many HAVE exchanged the Southern for today’s perpetually offended, reparations owed, societal plantations) and white cops wake up each morning looking to find a poor Michael Brown walking down the street innocently.
Truth and reality often never see the light of day. I saved a Rams picture of these 200 pound plus millionaires jumping up and down, playing bobblehead Lambs, signifying “Hands Up Don’t Shoot!”. Converting it into a meme for your reading pleasure:
Want the truth? 6 foot 5 Michael, just months from becoming a college football star, Michael Brown had just robbed a convenience store and was walking down the middle of the street when officer Wilson stopped to talk to him.
Six witnesses, half black and half non-black, said Brown grabbed the cop’s gun and tried to kill him. That “Hands up, don’t shoot” created by his criminal buddy never happened… but is a lie and line pushed by Black Lives Matter, Inc. and the Democrat and other parties’ leftists was born.
The one “witness” turned out to be a buddy of his and even he recanted his false narrative but too late.
I’ll bet even you whom I love and those i don’t know still think “Hands Up Don’t Shot” really happened and you can name Michael Brown. But I will bet that $50 I offer as reparations to any black slave plantation worker still alive, you CAN’T name ONE black teen killed by another black gangbanger (685 to choose from in 2019.
NOT even one? Proof CERTAIN black lives matter more than others.
“Robert Turner said the overrepresentation of African Americans in the NFL is troublesome. According to Turner’s book and independent statistics, 70 percent of the league’s players are African-American, but only 6 percent of the population in the country.” But, would we watch a bunch of fat, short people of all colors, white, black, green tossing 3 pointers at the rim? I think not. Discrimination works. If you don’t like your job, start a business. Hate your boss? Grow up and take charge of YOUR life instead of joining the grievance committee of the misery merchants association.
Personally, I don’t give a damn. Black athletes work hard to be the best, the 1%. One broken knee and they are out for good, like one Tommy John’s surgery cancels a 99 mph pitcher’s dreams for at least a year or for good.
We are NOT guaranteed equal outcomes (go to Venezuela, Cuba or any sub sahara African despot nation for that) but the chance to work hard, to succeed and reap the rewards of our perspiration and inspiration, with a portion of good luck.
If at age 25 you are a snowflake crying over Hillary’s 2016 election loss SHE caused, or at 25 find you have a useless Polka Pizza history degree useless unless you are at Harvard and they HAVE a Polka Pizza History department and will pay you $150K a year from their $30 billion endowment, Don’t blame me.
Your mom or dad. Or a single mom who put her black son thru med school to become the most talented pedriatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Blame Ben for being first to separate conjoined at the brain twins, unlike Dr Mengele, Hitler’s doctor researcher who separate twins by using one as his sliced up experiment.
Time to be an adult. Don’t blame anyone but the sad sack in the mirror. Underachieving 25 year old, decide by age 30 you WILL make something of your life. Don’t join AntiFa, made up of too many angry white spoiled kids who followed the fool. WE ALL need mentors: but especially the targets of “racism.” We can solve problems and offer solutions. IF we take the initiative to do so.
ObiWan Kenobi asked: “Who is the bigger fool? The fool or the foolish who follows the fool?”
Always remember this: words have meanings AND are powerful.
The word “systemic” has many definitions, but it is fundamental to a predominant social, economic, or political practice evidenced in the culture or country we live in. Built-in. See the complete definitions above
Let me let you in on a little secret so you don’t feel white guilty or brown guilty or even black guilt.
People have been treating others shittily, or unfairly since time’s dawn.
Using Gov Newsom’s first name, Recall, Recall Cain killed Able. Talk about systemic racism at the beginning of the HUMAN race. No Dr DiAngelo or Stokely Carmichael to turn it into an industry. Murder has been with us from the beginning. But so has optimism, opportunity, even…LOVE
Yet we are alive today.
Abram turned Abraham’s (not Lincoln) impatience not having kids, led to Ishmael from Sarah’s maidservant Hagar, and then God’s chosen, the Jews’ prime ancestor, Isaac. God was NOT prejudiced against the heirs of the Arabian peoples (many known as Muslims) but protected them. Read the historical unrevised by the NYTimes, books.
Ishmael and Isaac each had 12 sons. And the half-siblings have been battling ever since, even up to today, where PLO Abbas rewards Jew killing “Palestinians” with lifetime pensions. Man’s inhumanity toward other men and women IS the endemic gene of destruction, not racism in America.
But, think about it: 1/5th of America were black slaves; yes, there were free blacks in the northern and western states, but systemic racism DID exist in the 18th and 19th centuries.
One little battle called the Civil War, answers the question: “Do we value blacks as part of America?” The Constitution and Declaration of Independence were drafted as the PATH to free the slaves, even though slaves were owned both by north and south. It’s just the South, the Democrat party of 1854, hated it when the Republicans stole all their free labor.
Despite the fact the sad indoctrinated anarchists and ignorant are destroying Fred Douglas, Lincoln, Columbus etc statues, Lincoln DID work to free them forever.
You need to read, not revise history, Lincoln’s most important and best, was his second inaugural speech.
Lincoln’s words ring true. The line most quoted comes from the end. I have reprinted the speech here, because the neo-iconoclasts, the history deniers and rewriters like that 1619 urinalist at the NYTimes who says his 1619 project is journalism NOT history, are pulling down Uly Grant and even Abe Lincoln’s statues.
Not to mention St Junipero Serra for the sin of helping the indians in California.
Even better, BLM wants Jesus images destroyed...
…but only the white Saviors, because they are a form of “white supremacy”?
How often have you heard of Tutsi supremacy? Black supremacy? Jewish supremacy?
So, now even the Savior and Creator is the target of anarchists at Marxist led BLM Inc.
I guess when you were spawned in hell, it makes sense. But, think about this: making blacks SUPERIOR is no different than Hitler making Aryan white the master race.
All lives DO matter, even the ones sacrificed on the altar of convenience. Did you know Negros are aborted NINE TIMES as much as non blacks today. Jesse Jackson, considered by some an ethical black leader, called this “abortion is black genocide” in 1977; and he is still right, though he doesn’t mind sliced up black kids these days, like Dementia sufferin’ Joe said recently.
To me, if you want to talk racism, killing members of the human race, qualifies you for the top prize. Lincoln’s famous line, one we need to practice today:
“With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds;… ” The work Lincoln was talking about was freeing one eighth, 12% of the nation’s population. Black slaves.
The cost was 600,000 humans. Systemic? Odd way to show it, sacrificing all colors to free people who were owned. Something Planned Parenthood excels at yet today.
The 2nd inaugural is an important read.
“Fellow Countrymen At this second appearing to take the oath of the presidential office, there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement, somewhat in detail, of a course to be pursued, seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention, and engrosses the enerergies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself; and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured.
On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago, all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil-war. All dreaded it — all sought to avert it. While the inaugeral address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war — seeking to dissole the Union, and divide effects, by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war; but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive; and the other would accept war rather than let it perish. And the war came.
One eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern half part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was, somehow, the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union, even by war; while the government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war, the magnitude, or the duration, which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with, or even before, the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!” If we shall suppose that American Slavery is one of those offences which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South, this terrible war, as the woe due to those by whom the offence came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a Living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope — fervently do we pray — that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue, until all the wealth piled by the bond-man’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash, shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said f[our] three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord, are true and righteous altogether”
With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan — to achieve and cherish a lasting peace among ourselves and with the world. to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with the world. all nations.
[Endorsed by Lincoln:] Original manuscript of second Inaugural presented to Major John Hay. A. Lincoln April 10, 1865
Abe left us a prescription for healing that is important especially today. Five days later, he died at the hand of someone who preferred that blacks have a price tag, John Wilkes Booth.
Want a solution? It BEGINS with us. One person at a time, building relationships, helping as we can.
A Black Minneapolitan Jack Brewer discusses systemic indoctrination. He owns 3 restaurants that were seriously vandalized in Minneapolis; Jack does NOT want to defund the cops. He wants better police training a la Chauvin. Why are people offended about just having discussions, as if we were in a free country with freedom of speech, expression. Debate
Some quotes: “Our nation faces a fork in the road and a decision to either continue down the same path of systemic racism or to confront our past honestly.— Bree Newsome
Bree, you can’t confront a past you don’t understand, nor have a clue what it means. Funny, I can’t find anyone who admits to being a Civil War level racist from the Southern Democrat party. Bree, do you own a slave? I don’t. I am still offering that stack of Freedom $2 bills to anyone still alive who worked on a Southern plantation for no wages as a slave. As it is, in a free country, the only debt we owe each other is love. Promise to treat each other with respect. NO ONE OWES ANOTHER PERSON A SLAVE REPARATION CHECK. But trust me, grifters and misery merchants will have their hands out to tax you further and take your hard earned income.
“People are tired of marching. People are tired of hashtag protests. People want some systemic change.”— Rev. Tiffany Thomas So, Tiffany, do you condone violence? Robbing to equalize past grievances and wealth accumulation? What “change” are you looking for? There is no Vulcan mind melder to erase all racist thoughts from racists among us.
So how’s this systemic racism going. 5% of the marriages in the 1980s were interracial Today, it has gone from 5% to 18%, blacks marrying a white spouse; from 4% to 11% More Asians marry other “races” 29% too. Overall, today the number of new marriages, 1 in 5, are inter-rracial. Does that sound like systemically racist America? Shelby Steele. Almost sounds like humans, white and black, recognize though we are taller, fatter, older, smarter, we are ALL part of the one human race.
Great leaders among us: Ryan Bomberger. Yes he is black. And married. And smart.

Apparently Covid is covered: looks like the Covid “Stay safe” rules are changing. They aren’t in church but lots of people go shoulder to shoulder, some with masks out at all hours.
The rest of us, quarantined in our homes for God knows how long more. To those who relish law and order, the Constitutional guarantee is the freedom to ASSEMBLE. Zero mention of “protesting” on the Hollywood 101 Freeway on 11-9-16 with DiAngelo “White Fragility” Sociologist colleague Dr Wiede demanding Ben Shapiro be bullied off CALstate LA campus. In other words, once the first brick is thrown, or first cop eyes lasered into blindness, no longer a simple assembly.
We all need to do better in our lives, in some area or areas. Practice Abe’s words: With Malice toward none, with charity towards all, with firmness in the right”
If you ask someone in your family or on the street the question “What do you think of systemic racism in America?”, what answer do you get? Blank stare? “Huh?”. What are you talking about?
Just announced, hard work and achievement is systemic racism; you can’t hand out awards based on results any more? Sounds like a lazy 5th grader, who doesn’t want to learn, came up with this one.
Where does the phrase “racism” come from? It is traced back to an org in the Haight-Asbury wild ’60s and later, that is resurging in a different form today: the Weather Underground.
Like so many coded words and phrases, it is used as a weapon and a tool.
It is their second step in their six step program, pictured to the right. Known for their bombing of government buildings, presidential advisor Bill Ayers participated in the bombings of New York City Police Department headquarters in 1970, the United States Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972, as he noted in his 2001 book, Fugitive Days. Terry Turchine covered them in his book, the photo depicts. The Weather Underground precedes BLM and AntiFActs. And Bill Ayers IS a coach of BLM Inc. TODAY. Like a leftist penny, it never goes away.
Unfortunately, many phrases and phrased questions today have loaded uses and are designed to evoke a half-truth or make you feel really bad about yourself, what you do and the country you love. Be careful who you let hack your mind; it is more important than a cellphone and you only get one. Cellphones? No your mind.
Such is this odorless, color-loaded gas called “racism”. It has many definitions and adherents; in the 60s, it was an effective tool of the Weather Underground (Bill Ayers was part, mentor to a former president) as stated above. But it persists in our lexicon. Larry Elder, a smart black leader just released his new documentary, Uncle Tom at UncleTom.com, takes issue with it being used on Americans still and the stats he produces shows he IS right. But perception often becomes the reality, even if false.
In fact, Law & order wasn’t real popular with The Weather Underground, among others, and today they are mainlined.
Though using ‘systemic racism’ as a tool for “change” goes back to the Weather Underground, just as important, thousands of 60s radicals became last and this century’s, believe it or not, tenured college professors.
Just today, Mayor Bowser, the black top exec of DC, evicted 200 people, many of them women, black and white. Just when it’s safe for hotels to get into business again, another mayor interferes in free market housing. Of course, they were Utah’s National Guard sent to help Muriel’s riot torn city calm down a bit. No good deed goes unpunished.
Can a black mayor be a racist? You tell me. DC Mayor Bowser spent muni tax dollars to paint in bright letters a corporate name: BLACK LIVES MATTER. Yet, when Students 4 Life came with removable chalk dust to write “All Black babies lives matter”, they were arrested when they were met at 5am by 6 cop cars. I am sure the officers were just following the orders of a blatantly racist against small black lives mayor who believes she is the Queen of the District. Paint with permanent paint BLM. Use chalk and you go to jail. Trust me, readers, we have a lot more problems than mind reading the racists in the country.
Guess what these radical left teachers of the academe teach our vulnerable 19 year olds today? Not that God is supreme, Jesus is King, but America is evil and needs to be destroyed, white privilege is a sin and more.
Marx might be dead, but his philosophy lives on in too many college classrooms across our blessed land, unchallenged or debated.
AntiFA is the result of influenced college kids with less than marketable degrees looking for purpose, as can be seen on your screens, now a domestic terrorist designate.
Black lives matter or BLM assumes it is the pre-eminent leader of 13% of the US population. But the list is long of solid black leadership NOT politically connected to the party that still has a slave plank in its platform, the Southern, Northern etc Democrat party.
Beckman, you are old and not the current “in” crowd; you don’t know what BLM is. Well, let’s let THEM, let BLM tell us,
Here is BLM’s own words; although not spelled out is their heavy anti-Semitic beliefs. Just odd: the Jews were oppressed long before blacks and whites for that matter; visit Auschwitz-Berkinau if you can and feel the silence. 6 million died before the NYTimes would even acknowledge Poland had German kill mills. Today, you wouldn’t know NYC still has 51 kill mills under the PParenthood logo.
BLM Read their words. not the kneeling knuts on the gridiron. not our book club. Not the ABCNNBCBS media arm of the party of slavery.
“Every day, we recommit to healing ourselves and each other, and to co-creating alongside comrades, allies, and family a culture where each person feels seen, heard, and supported.
We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities.
We work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people.
We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.
We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.
We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world.
We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
We cultivate an intergenerational and communal network free from ageism. We believe that all people, regardless of age, show up with the capacity to lead and learn.
We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.”
Is your next door neighbor racist? Does your company have a racist slant to its mission statement? Though it is the spark for this election year racism campaign, the very sad Floyd story is zero to do with race, but more to do with an evil cop and a career criminal trying to get his life turned around. We are told.
It became an effective way to go from pandemic public health to a new wave of social justice warriors on the loose. I thought locked inside, social distancing, masks etc were real for the Plague of Xi. Yet 1200 “health care” workers: “A group of health and medical colleagues has penned an open letter to express their concern that protests around the United States could be shut down under the guise of coronavirus health concerns.” For three months, for the Plague of Xi, now not important?
“Instead, we wanted to present a narrative that prioritizes opposition to racism as vital to the public health, including the epidemic response. We believe that the way forward is not to suppress protests in the name of public health but to respond to protesters demands in the name of public health, thereby addressing multiple public health crises. CNN”
Now protesting, yes, an American right and one I have engaged in for different causes, especially pro life, is more important than the super spreading SARS-Cov-2. Both are odorless, colorless invisible enemies. News to all: hating anyone else for whatever reason is terrible for one’s health, especially the hater. Great way to get colitis and acid indigestion.
Systemic Racism litmus test. If we were a racist America, you wouldn’t have a 100% agreement that Chauvin was an animal the way he tortured and killed George Floyd. In Sen Robert Byrd’s heydey as a KKK member, yes, it would have been considered “well done.” Difference today than back then is a camera on every body. Nor the “second chance” exec order that gave a two decade mom stuck in jail for weed, the “get out of jail NOW!” card. NOT in the Dem deck trust me. Or more opportunity zones for minority jobs. And the trillions spent on anti poverty programs.
Even though Floyd, has a a rap sheet longer than a California king, he was killed horribly via 2 cops compressing his chest and nemesis cop Chauvin kneeing his neck for 500 seconds. I said early on, after seeing a compilation of tapes, it would go to murder 2 (intent to kill) and maybe 1 (premeditation). There is a bunch more to the bad blood between the cop and the counterfeiter. This was no first time chance meeting.
Racist remains the most popular card in a political party’s card deck, taking up a whole suit: clubs, since it is used to whack anyone who does something they disagree with. Want to have a sovereign border, ace of clubs, whack! if you believe criminals should not enter America. Double whack! Trump got black unemployment the lowest in 5 decades, the Jack of Clubs, whack! Do we each have, as the Times claims, a slave gene going back to the founding of the USA in 1619. You read it right! NOT 1776.
Hard to find the statistics how often police help keep people safe. How many times, day in, month in they stop a murder, rioter or looter from injuring the innocents. They don’t see to exist. Yes, some departments need better training. But the majority are integrated with the different cultures, whether Hispanic, white, black, Asian. They work hard under insane circumstances, to “keep the peace”. Recall, they ARE peace officers, first and foremost.
Ask Candace Owens of Blexit what she things the problem is. Or better still, Ryan & Bethany Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation have a tag line “Less activism, more FACtivism” Both are led by young, smart black (as if color matters) leaders making a difference.
Is Racism, looking at another person and not liking them because of who they are or what they do? Pretty broad definition. Is it hanging blacks from trees or endowed with tire necklaces set on fire? Dem Senator Robert Byrd was a KKK grand kleagle, the military arm of the older Dem party and he got elected multiple terms. He was “reformed” supposedly and was allowed to use the “n” word at will. Was the white peak hatted Senator ‘racist’?
No one knows what ‘systemic racism’ is and how to combat it. Then there is “income inequality” and “climate injustice” Some of those loaded phrases I mentioned above.
By systemic, do you mean everyone is beating up on the blacks. NYTimes says racism is one of our genes going back to the founding in 1619, we are all slave masters. that America must be destroyed to its core and rebuilt, a common theme of the left. Yes, they say 1619 not 1776. NYTimes is part of the American historical revisionist society,
And it gets more bizarre, used as a weapon. A popular black you tuber is running around with his film crew demanding white girls take a knee to him. And oddly, they do because they don’t want to be seen as ‘racist’. Words have meanings, they are powerful. But the TRUTH remains the MOST important tool in our personal tool sheds.
To believe that racism is built into everything American is to give up. To give the race baiters and victim merchants free reign of your mind. As a nation, we are the most generous people on earth, willing to help, expecting the best from everyone, opportunity. How can it be racism?
For three months, church goers, small businesses, innocent families told to lock themselves under house arrest. Today, a Johns Hopkins epidemiologist tweeted “more important to protest and loot than to remain in the home.” so Social Justice warrior raids more important than social distancing? Do protesters already have the Covid vaccine? Wow!
Looters, rioters, arsonists get the green light to hurt black areas even more. This isn’t systemic racism: it is the failures of liberalism and Democrat leadership in major cities. And therein lies the problem and the need: the leadership has owned their fiefdoms too long. A side benefit of the Plague of Xi is the coming Renaissance.
We are NOT a racist nation, though there are racists of all colors and stripes. The last four decades, the record is just the opposite. We HELP others considered “less fortunate”.
Is it racist that for decades the underprivileged, called minority college placement, were “subsidized” for lower marks because they were “disadvantaged”. Hardly. If anything, it is biased against the kids who work long hours on homework, not Gameboys, to get the best grades to get the best college spots. Like Dr Ben Carson, a recurring example. A systemic racist America would not do this, bend over backwards to help everyone.
Think of racism as the Covid virus. We believe it’s all around us and will attack anyone who doesn’t clean their hands or mask up. Please don’t feel guilty because you are white. This is foolish as well. Don’t fall for the play deck of the prostiticians (a politician willing to sell his grandma for a vote), happy to separate you from your wallet and your critically thinking mind from your body.
Since 1968, one party has failed repeatedly with these “systemic racism” cards. Started in the radical left, per Terry Turchie and well, history. In fact Systemic Racism is used to cloud and hide the systemic failures of a worldview that is bankrupt. Americans, black and white, were not meant to be “ruled” as the Illini judge just said about their governor’s petty tyrant policies going too far. We ALSO were never meant to be owned, like the party of slavery still believes today. Sunshine IS out there! Life is beautiful…always remember, The producer, director and camera person control what goes into the camera and the story on YOUR home screen.
Say “systemic racism’ and you think black almost automatically. But this is foolish.
IceT’s Instagram shows ancient history, of blacks being ‘redlined’ by lenders because of high melanin levels.
Yet, in 1996 the community redevelopment act under Clinton ended this practice, 25 years ago. In fact it worked so well, anyone who could breathe was given a home loan, called a NINJa (no income No Job). Wonder why in 2007-2008 hell broke loose, as people walked away from their homes and the mortgage meltdown happened? People who didn’t have the ability to repay…DIDN’T. Home values plummeted through 2011-2012.
Was that “racist” to lend people who couldn’t make the payments? In a way, yes. Because they lost what little down payment and their savings they had invested. People have owned other people since well before the Egyptians had a few million Israelite slaves until the 10th plague (Pharoah, not the plague of Xi). And record low black unemployment in the Trump first 3 years is racism? Freeing under his “second chance” a black mom who was in prison for decades for a joint? Refunding the historical back colleges that don’t have the Harvard $30 billion endowment problem? Actual truth and actions speak louder than accusatory words.
HOW DO WE DEFEAT PERCEIVED SYSTEMIC RACISM? EVERY one of us defeats this systemic racism ruse by living our lives, helping others whenever we can and not misjudging others, NO MATTER what color or size or age another person is. The LARGEST job add in history, 2.5 million in May 2020, is proof America is rebounding AND black unemployment like the other boats we put people in, is rising yet again.
Another question: Because someone is black, does this make them the expert on race?
Ben Carson, a black pediatric neurosurgeon could easily have been one of the “victim” looters. Today Fri June 5 2020, he said “We have had slavery forever. A large portion of our populace died in the civil war. But we have given a large portion of our nation more opportunity than any other country on earth. Police are very important part of order. Ben subsidized housing is his focus, and you need police to keep order. Ban them and you get back to wild west and militias, which is what these people want. Chaos is all that works for them. Without it, with people working, they can’t sucker people into taking their side. It’s a seduction that takes place, roping you into their anarchy.” Dr Carson is all about opportunity, unchaining useless regulations to help blacks and minorities AND America being successful.
The “people” Mr Carson is talking about are those who use race for personal gain. Usually accusing others of something. No one reading this was alive when slavery was acceptable to many of the southern states.
Take, Ilhan Omar’s, comments about law and order, using a crisis to do her bidding. Her solution, as a recent Somalia immigrant who married her brother to gain access to the American dream, is to dismantle the police. And a few other odd things.
Jessie Jackson in 1977 said “abortion is black genocide”; today he supports the systemic reduction of the black population by satanist surgeons of the ultimate racist. Margaret Sanger. who spent time in Germany giving her views to the National Socialist party. She hated blacks.
Carson said “we have had slavery forever”. But most blacks, except the victocrats (as black leader Larry Elder calls them), today don’t consider themselves victims; they just want to work hard for their families, something the lowest black umemployment levels in Feb 2020 guaranteed.
Sanger believe “useless eaters” are a burden and need to be gone. She hated Catholics, blacks, Puerto Ricans and others in her upstate New York area. She considered them NOT the best of the race. Her idea to hire “three or four colored ministers” to aid in the effort to “exterminate the Negro population” came much later. Of course, Hitler mirrored her views on master race but took it out in the main, on the Jews. Something the NYTimes hid from view in the 1940s: gassing and incinerating millions.
But slavery is not really a white on black story. For example:
Southern slave owners, who founded the Democrat party in 1854, bought black slaves from black slave ship owners sailing from Northern African. Speaker Pelosi took a knee wearing West African slave master kente cloth with all her Democrat party of slavery partiers in the House of Representative. She claims she had no idea but the truth is out there.
In Africa, blacks owned whites and blacks. China, they put their minorities to work in gulags, work camps, because they are not “pure” dynastic hegemonic Chinese. The Plague of Xi came from a man who envisions China taking over the world. Muslims are murdered, just as some Muslim extremists murder Christians. In fact, Christians are too often the most oppressed on earth. But not in America. Ever hear of the love for each other exhibited by Black and Mexican gangs in prisons? As the book “Unfreedom of the Press” shows, the NYTimes abandoned millions of gassed European Jews, despite knowing the truth. Is this racist? Of course. It’s NOT whites hate blacks or whites are racist to blacks built into the Constitution or modern voluntary associations.
If you suspect racism, lacking Vulcan mind meld, the ONLY person you can work on is YOURSELF.
Racism is ONLY provable when someone does something racist. Whatever you define it as. Exercise discrimination based on negative stereotypes YOU or HE or SHE assign to a whole group of humans. But PreJudging IS something we MUST do.
Right judgement comes from NOT Rushing to Judgement but judging righteously.
You can guide and advise, but it people dislike someone else for who, what, where, why they are who they are, we can’t put -ism after every human interaction and stay sane.
Better example: in the US last year, the 7000 black murders were 90% done by other blacks, mainly young adults and teens. Are blacks “racist” against other blacks. But the agenda-ized media will NOT feature their stories. Real stats: the 9 ‘unarmed’ blacks killed by white cops last year, had seven using other weapons, like cars, knives etc, to assault a cop (Michael Brown used his 6’5″ body in Ferguson) or other person. NINE. Not 9000. Again, name one of the 7000 black mainly young killed by other blacks, mainly gangbangers last year.
There is no white cop kill black innocents pandemic. It’s a faux media line pushed by ABCNNBCBS.
The media arm of the KKK Democrat party that still plaudits KKK Senator Robert Byrd in the Carolinas. Statues, street names, buildings. If you think racism is real, look to the party that promotes it.
It is NOT the Republican party which I have my difficulties with for not growing gonads to battle evil, but they not the party favored by the left and anarchists battled for black’s freedom and their civil rights. NOT the party of Obama, Clinton, and Biden, Harris, etc.
You might say, Len, you are nuts. Proof? The quiz below will show you. But, today BECAUSE of the camera on every body, police, if anything, are doubly careful.
They know their actions are under constant scrutiny, their budgets cut, left leaning mayors hoping to ban or fire them all. They WEAR body cameras the way teens clutch theirs non stop. Unseparable. Most important: contrary to the noise, there is NOT a one on one police to citizen ratio. The people who most WANT the cops are the inner city grandmas, of all colors, who see their neighborhoods unsafe with hoodlums and the weapon of choice is dialing 9-1-1 to get help.
Here are the words delinking the violence from the passive protesters from a solid black factivist:
“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace. It solves no social problem: it merely creates new and more complicated ones. Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
This is part of his Nobel peace prize speech.
To the world and my kids, Josh&Maryann, Matt & Emily, etc., know you are doing an excellent job raising the NexGen. Please don’t absorb this invitation to jump on the ‘heavy guilt’ train, like the 20 something girls kneeling in supplication to a short black you tuber; that’s insane. But police arrest more blacks in minority areas than others, like they are picking on the blacks. Really? Let me unpack that.
The reason more blacks are arrested in minority areas is three numbers: 9-1-1. Police respond to where innocent, yes often black grandmas or domestic violence situations turned in by neighbors, via 911; outside of sanctioned looting currently going on, loitering gangbangers are not welcome by most inner city families coming up to their front doors.
Dan Bongino, ex NY cop when Giuliani cleaned up New York and the department, tells of one domestic violence call he responded to the guy even went after him. Because, too often the victims, usually the wife, won’t report her man and endure the pain to keep the status quo. Dan talks of the 5 year old child in the corner crying; etched in his mind forever.
FATHERLESS FAMILIES. #1 factor in this sad story is no father in the home; Big Floyd had no dad in the home, ironically.
This victim industry and part of the problems facing young black teens, not all, goes back to LBJ and the new War on Poverty and welfare. He saw it as a means to gain votes. Funny, when black leadership is mentioned, you never hear about the Radiance Foundation or Project 21; it’s always BLM as if BLM is the anointed leader like Al sharpton and jessie jackson. How about hearing from real black community leaders for a little balance.
LBJ’s “War on Poverty” Hurt Black Americans
LBJ said no family gets welfare if a “Negro dad is in the home.” Racist? You tell me. But LBJ fueled the anti-family as domestic church, as the building block of society, by this simple divisional edict. Bribe families with money, and you help the dissolution of the most important unit to help a black teen boy become a man. Irony, Floyd had no dad for discipline and accountability.
Read this bit from the black community leader Horace of Project 21: “Fifty years ago, America began the War on Poverty,” said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper. “Having spent trillions with little to show for it, it’s clearly time to declare a cease fire. After destroying generations of blacks and all but destroying the black family in total, it is time to try empowerment and personal responsibility.”
If “systemic racism”, founded by the WUA, like Covid is in the air, the solutions are accessible. Actually, they ARE underway:
This is what the “second chance act” and empowerment opportunity zones, super low black unemployment, subsidizing traditional black colleges did for the black community last 3 years BEFORE the Plague of Xi temporarily upset the apple cart. Less cheap labor crossing the Rio Grande, means and meant more jobs for the black and other minority “communities”. A famous man said “a rising tide raises ALL boats”. We were there and are getting back to it. The best antidote to perceived systemic racism is the “system”, ie private sector jobs market, hires and gives a chance to someone who wants to work. Equal opportunity works. IF the person wants to work as well.
But it wasn’t LBJ’s party of slavery; it was the businessman people love to hate, who did these things. He is called tyrant, racist, all kinds of things. If you mean does Tump single them out to help them, to give them opportunity denied, you’re right. Call this author a racist if it makes you feel better, because i see ONE set of founding parents, not 12, ONE Human race with many cultures and delineations. One Adam & Eve, not a magic appearing couple from every supposed “subrace” or “subset” on earth. It is scientifically and historically impossible.
The victocrat race pimps use divide and conquer, blame the elusive “man”, hate these because of x tactics. Like the weather underground. But that is NOT America.
In the age of cameras, they still do NOT give you the whole picture; the cameraman & camerawoman have their bias, their planned agenda, as we all do.
The victocrats are everywhere. Just DON’T let them bog you down with baggage that is not yours. The ONLY racist you have to worry about is YOU! If you are not racist, don’t kneel to the race pimp on You Tube, ladies. You can’t change what you can’t read: minds.
It is their business, the victocrats, hijacking your mind, making everyone a victim and making you feel less than dog doo for being successful. Look at that black inner city kid of a single mom who wasn’t allowed TV much. You may have heard of him. He became the pre-eminent pediatric neurosurgeon (like Nathan’s at UCI) separating conjoined twins after birth, at the brain. Yes, current HHS secretary Ben Carson. Success knows no color or dwells on the struggles we all go through. And success is why America continuously helps the less able, the needy, to get fed or given opportunity to succeed themselves. Despite this unnecessary 42 million job loss of the Plague of Xi, which rebounded in May, looking more like a V recovery since the economy was robust and sound before this insane artificial masking of the American economy for the two epicenter (Nursing homes 43% & NYCity 52% of us deaths total) Plague of Xi.
Racism is NOT built into buildings; and since we can’t pull a Vulcan Spock, we don’t read people’s minds. It’s actions we judge. TAKE action to do good for others WHERE you are planted first.
Everyone agreed Chauvin was a murderer, anyone who was breathing. Left, right, conservative, leftist. Mr. Floyd is dead. I still believe (I was right about the Murder3 change, to Murder2 for “intent to kill”). Premeditation is difficult to prove but could happen. But the 4 cops will get life sentences soon.
Quiz#1 Name 2 of the 10 black teens killed on Memorial Day weekend, by other blacks, in Chicago. ______ Name one black guy killed by white cop in Minneapolis the same weekend.
Quiz#2 Name just 1 of the last few years of black young men killed by white cop. I bet you can come up with a couple rather easily.
Quiz#3 Name any of the 700 Chicago, mainly inner city black people, killed in 2019. Just one_____
Last Quiz question: 20 million black children have died in the US since 1973. How?_________
The point is, where is the camera being pointed. Like any good cameraman, you control the angle. Every good prostitician (a politician who would sell his grandma for a vote) knows this. Truth is just an option, not a goal. There’s 340 million of us in the US, we CAN’T “affect” those we have zero contact with: but we CAN help, be a good neighbor, to those we do.
For 3 months, we are under house arrest for a germ. George Floyd did not deserve murder, even with fentanyl and meth in his system, and a rap sheet and i know bad blood with cop Chauvin.
This is why there isn’t ANYTHING racist about his death AND more important, everyone’s reaction to the perpetrator: Chauvin wanted him dead, whatever his color.
Maybe they worked the same counterfeit ring. His family says he was turning his life around; the only way to prove this is to see his actions. His premature death prevents this. This is how we must treat EVERYONE. Assume the best; that positive change has occurred, leaving bad habits and mistakes behind. We don’t do this well. Your president was pro-choice; he is the most prolife president by his actions in history. He changed due to a couple he knew. He’s married to a devout Catholic, Melania; he took no salary and achieved much. Trump changed but no one wants to forgive him, to give him a chance despite irrefutable successes. It’s as if a group of people didn’t want him to move into the White House for a second and have battled him all the way. Like the silent coup that started Jan 5, 2017 in the Oval Office/West Wing via the ObamaNation leaders who still have a bootleg copy of the WH keys.
I don’t need to defend Trump; neither do you. But before you judge him, get the facts. Just like the racism angle. Get the truth: everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but NOT their personal truth. But rush to judgement destroys; no one wins, except the victocrats, and race baiters
Minutes later, peaceful protesters are upended by rioters, AntiFA anarchists using frozen bottles, metal poles, baseball bats to loot and riot. Once the loot is gone, then the arsonists come in and torch away. The collapse of the civil society happens in the main in decades long Democrat machine run cities like NYC, LA, Chicago and more. Add in AntiFA and the militant arm of BLM, and you have Portland and so many more. Systemic racism? No, guys driving $350,000 rolls royces laden with pirated loot is not systemic racism. It is “opportunistic race card ism”.
I like Ice T as an actor, but, look very closely at this piece:
Response to Ice T by James the Arkansawyer: “Systemic Racism and Implicit Bias are terms used to describe the failures of the government, (also known as statism) & As long as you keep supporting them they will keep creating new terms to describe failures of government. We need to remove the state from things like education”
As it is, the Weather underground and other anarchist groups still have not dethroned God, not matter how many riots, frontal attacks and blasphemies they engage in.
In case Mr Trump used your bible recently, it goes like this.
The Son of God replied to the greatest commands question:
The Lord our God is Lord alone!
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength
The second is this:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself
BKind 4Give B4Given
America is all the country we got. Live it as if it is your only country.
People keep mentioning America’s major deficiency as systemic racism.

Of course, the chief mentor of the party is Margaret Sanger (she was portrayed in the first “Cheaper by the Dozen”
Look at the red meme; in her own words, IF you can read them. Her words are chilling but real. Even former Senator and Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter’s dad, was against taxpayer paid black baby killing. That was UNTIL he was challenged by the current Democrat leadership in the party founded in 1854 noted for its Southern Democrat plantation slave owners, then secession (leading to 600,000 deaths).
Margaret Sanger considered blacks, Puerto Ricans and others “useless eaters”, her main
goal in pushing birth control especially to rid us of these, to purify the race.
Classic white supremacist and racist; her organization, Planned Parenthood continues her tradition, eliminating blacks at a nine times more clip than whites and Hispana natives. NYC has 41 abortion clinics and 593 nursing homes; Florida 4000 nursing homes. Planned Parenthood’s business model is to put their mills next to large minority populations, near schools too, especially in poorer inner city neighborhoods. Talk about TRUE racism: desire to eliminate, in Sanger’s own words, the Negro population.
Jorge, It was an honest mistake, associating Owens with Hitler’s form of master racism, Aryan supremacy. However the term “nationalism” is misconstrued: it simply means someone loves their country, feels the country needs to put its people first. I believe the Trump term is “Make America Great Again”?! Who can be against this? The activist media plays this card all too often. But good analysis of Candace being human.
Hitler loved Germany and thought, similar to Xi Jingping and the pure China race, that blue eyed blond Aryans were superior in intellect, etc.
There is some crossover as well: the Nuremberg Racial Laws of 1935 included input from Sanger, who traveled to the National Socialist German party and influenced a little or lot, Hitler’s theories. In fact, the Darwinian evolution (I did a paper on this in college) idea of “survival of the fittest” feeds this mindset> My race is better than yours.
Excellent definition of “racism” is “the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another”
Yes, the north had slaves, but the Southern states, specifically the Southern Democrats believed they could buy and sell blacks like chattel; they were inferior in intellect but superior in physical characteristics. Take the term “white man can’t jump”.
If blacks are 12% of the population, why do football teams and basketball teams have more than 12% blacks, proportionate to the population? Is it “racist” and discriminatory to hire blacks who are Lew Alcindor and Wilt Chamberlain size and talent? Of course not.
EXCEPT in this egalitarian obsessed culture, where everyone and everything must be 100% boringly equal.
Jorge, this is the difficulty with general groupings of the human race by arbitrary characteristics, whether immutable or changeable. Humans ALL come from the same genetic two parents source. Scientifically born out by human geneology and the early records of descendants of mom and dad #1.
Hegemonic Xi, Margaret Sanger, Hitler, and especially Star Trek’s Kahn played by Cumberbach preached and worked toward their respective definitions of the master human species…as did so called black leadership like Jackson and Sharpton. In 1977 (look it up), Jessie preached that “abortion is black genocide”. It is.
Jorge, I hope this is better; no nicknames just facts. But i do disagree with this: “she reaffirms their preconceived notions about black people by saying exactly what they want to hear.” Give us white dads of 11 and believer that ALL humans are given equal opportunity to thrive and succeed. I have no preconceived notions of the NEXT black person I meet. I treat them, as much as possible, as all humans need to be treated. You know me; i am a cheerleader looking for the best for others and always looking for ways to help others: THIS is the solution to combat perceived or real racism.
You are a great dad, Jorge; but note that I am the grandfather of four black children, three male and one female. I wish the absolute best for them, the two Pacheco Norco boys AS DID one of my favorite black leaders, Martin Luther King. His wish is coming through for his four, once the dust settles from the race pimps and opportunists.
It’s not easy being the grandfather of four black children as this author is; nor is it easy being the parents of children mixed with Polish, German, Colombian. Same fears, hopes, dreams. But it IS a great day to be alive and an exceptional day to help a stranger, whatever size or color he or she is.

I love the diversity of humanity. Just don’t lie and bully others into believing your opinions. Only ONE truth but always two opinions. Leave your comments.
