The Race Card

Am I the only who sees that the only people who care about race are either liberals, demagogues, or their unwitting followers?

Take what is going on with the Katrina disaster. Louis Farrakhan, one of the most racist men in America (Yes, a black man can be a racist) is spouting insanity about the U.S. government blowing up the levees in New Orleans to try to murder African-Americans. He is using his hatred of white people to fuel his demagougery that inspires him to try to whip up racial tensions in whomever he can fool into thinking his way. In other words, he's a hateful liar who wants Black people to kill white people. I consider this man to be the equivalent of the Grand Wizard of the KKK, and they both suck.

Too many extreme liberal politicians to count are using the initial failure of the hurricaine relief effort to spout off a message that conservatives don't care about minorities, especially black people. They are doing this purely for personal gain and it has no foundation in reality. This is liberal demagougery, and it is nothing more than a selfish attempt at a power grab. It's just plain ghoulish to try to use other people's pain for personal gain. It smacks of selfishness and a complete lack of care for the very people they are trying to get support from.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson, and I hate to say bad things about a man who has done so much good, but he makes a carreer out demagougery, and he's doing it now. His claims that racial bias played a part in the slow start to hurricaine relief efforts are just plain false. On the plus side though, he did pay for charter busses to get people out of the city. He does bring aid and comfort most of the time when he gets involved in a tragedy,but he also brings strife in the form of messages that whip up racial tensions that need not exist. I think the man's heart is in the right place, and he has done some very good things in his life, but I think that he believes in a situation in America that no longer exists. The white man is not bringing the black man down anymore. I hope I'm not wrong about Jesse Jackson, I would hate to think that he is knowingly manipulating the African-American population into a mindset that brings them down as effectively as racists white men once did.

The Reverend Al Sharpton is a useless wannabe Jesse Jackson. Everything I ever hear this man say has something to do with racism. I honestly believe he is using his platform purely for personal gain. He has been made rich through accusing Americans of hating black people. He is a selfish demagogue.

There are a variety of people going on about how whites/conservatives/ Republicans hate or don't care about black people and even minorities in general. These people need to wake up and smell the reality. There are so few true racists anymore that making such an accusation against such a huge group of people is just ridiculous. Whites/conservatives/Republicans care about everyone equally. Just because we don't believe in handouts and reparations for slavery that many of our ancestors bled or died to end doesn't mean we hate or disregard anyone. Wanting a secure border does not make us racists against Hispanics. Wanting tough penalties for criminals does not make us racist against blacks as some have been crazy enough to claim. Most of us don't give a first thought, much less a second one to race in anything we do. People are people, and the sooner everyone figures that out, especially these people who keep injecting race and racism into everything that happens, the better off evryone will be.


  • The race "industry" may well be the single best illustration of the absurdity of the American left. The success of liberalism is based in creating Government dependency among the people, and the advancement of the "victimization" mentality a means for them to acheive it.

    Being a victim is the easiest option anyone has. It involves no effort, no discipline and generates compassion from others. It is the most self-serving esixtence around.

    The left needs to continue to convince minorities that they are victims in order to keep their votes!

    The chosen tool for this are the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons. These people reach minoritities on a completely emotional level, without reason, rationality or an examination of the facts. They convince them that they are entitled to the compassion and generosity of the American taxpayer, after all, it is the American Taxpayer that oppressed them in the fist place!

    They have no interest in the advancement of minorities. That would diminish demand for their industry. They need people to buy their line to avoid becoming obsolete. Their goal, as you said, is power.

  • I don't believe Republicans/Conservatives are racists. They do believe in "giving the most to those that have the most" now, that's a fact. lol
