Is racism as big a problem as the media and schools make it out to be in America?

To begin, let me share my story.  In 2007, I became a huge supporter of Obama for president. The reason?  I was exposed to local newspapers, the Vallejo Times Herald, the Contra Costa Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Sacramento Bee.  I was also exposed to television.  CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, PBS among others.  I heard NPR a lot on the radio and enjoyed it.  Also, I was a dupe and didn’t understand my Google searches had algorithms that promoted ideas favorable to Obama and the Democrats, and ensured Anti-Obama viewpoints were nearly hidden, as they were often over 20 search results deep.  At the time, I was convinced that police were bad, that they really had it out for black men.  There was a shooting by police officers in Vallejo, and, without knowing the circumstances, I watched the video.  I began to really believe the police were bad.  I remember a conversation I had with a fellow white business owner where I was telling him why were the police killing people so much?   I worked with a white police officer at my job, and my view of him began to deteriorate.  While I never revealed it to him, in the back of my mind, I began to think of him as the media portrayed all police officers, as cold and ruthless.  That was mostly completely false, as I later learned.

Time passed, and I began to learn Obama was a big charade.  He supported homosexual marriage all along.  I learned about abortion and how he supported that.  I learned about Islam’s bloody history, and how Obama was the most favorable president in American history towards Islam.  I was shocked to learn that many in the black church supported Obama just because he was black like them, and it didn’t matter at all that he stood for totally sinful practices as mentioned above.  That was a shocker.  There were many in the black church who weren’t suckered.  However, Obama managed to play on the deep roots of bitterness in the black community, and using Alinsky tactics.  You’ll recognize many of them in Obama’s tactics.  Alinsky was in the Mafia for a few years, so this is why our government under Obama, an Alinsky acolyte, began to resemble the mob.  They hid scandals.   Obama was the most biblically hostile President in American history.   Homosexual friends who he was rumored to be in relationships with at Trinity Church in Chicago turned up murdered right before Obama announced he was running for President.   He allegedly had a homosexual relationship with Larry Sinclair and used crack with him.   And a high school classmate of his alleged he was a homosexual and a crack user.  They were used by Obama and his administration to shut up the conservative press, to use our intelligence services against conservative politicians, and to infiltrate our police departments with Obama’s corrupt policing scheme.  WE STILL HAVE OBAMA’S RIDICULOUS AND DANGEROUS COMMUNITY POLICING WHICH HAS INCREASED CRIME AND ALLOWED CRIMINALS TO RUN WILD!

Below are Alinsky’s tactics:

1. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

2. Never go outside the expertise of your people. It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

3. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

4. Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

6. A good tactic is one your people enjoy. They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Don’t become old news.

8. Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

10.“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.

11.If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive. Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

At this point, my view began to shift.  I recognized Obama now as a very confused or very wicked man, and the worst President in American history.  That was quite a realization for a man who had ardently supported him through 2010.  Then, I began to realize this war on police was a fraud.  The idea that racism was all over American society and was designed to hold down blacks was a huge lie as well.   I then realized, with horror, that if I objected to Obama, and I happened to be a white, straight, Christian male, I was public enemy number one in America and would be immediately identified as a racist and a KKK member.   It is cultural Marxism.  Unfortunately, 90% of Vallejo doesn’t know about cultural Marxism, and so the brutal tactics of having people believe all whites are bad, and all blacks are victims is succeeding here and in other Democrat cities. This was shocking, but I wasn’t about to cower in terror before these Marxist tactics, and so I am writing this and speaking out, and will continue to do so no matter what happens to me.  It’s quite astounding when the justice Martin Luther King Jr. was calling for has come and we now have a sick backlash where injustice against whites is tolerated as payback for the sins of a minority of whites in America, most long since dead.   Under these tactics, it no longer matters what you say, how nice you’ve treated other races, or what your actions are.  If you oppose Obama and the black victimhood tribe, you are a RACIST, no matter what, and if you object, you will be terrorized and menaced with mob violence to get you to know your place on the Democrat plantation.

To add to this, we are told only individual races can understand their experience.  So, it doesn’t matter how much you’ve read or heard of oppression of blacks in America, you are told you can’t understand it because you aren’t black.  I totally disagree with this.  I can understand the horrors of the Holocaust because those who lived through it wrote about it.  I can understand the horrors of the Communist Gulags in Russia, because those who lived through it, wrote about it.  I can understand the horrors of slavery and segregation because those who survived it, wrote about it.  There is no new experience, and there is no experience unique to any race.  Every last race had slaves and every last race was a slave.  Just because the printing press was in Europe before Africa, and so the horrors of slavery among whites was written about first, does not mean the brutality wasn’t just as bad in African slavery, even if it wasn’t written about.

Then we had Ferguson, where Michael Brown died, after robbing a liquor store, and charging a police officer.  Michael Brown was not innocent, as even the Obama DOJ concluded, after intemperate remarks by Obama and AG Holder.    Witnesses in Ferguson admitted they were intimidated and bullied into testifying favorably to Michael Brown, or else.   So, we then had a Ferguson effect, where police were afraid to do their job, because if they happened to shoot a black man, there would be riots, no matter what the facts were.   Jesse Lee Peterson, a black minister, wrote about Brown and many of the other controversial police killings of black men, and showed what the true culprit is, and it is rarely the police.  It is true there is injustice at times in policing.  but when you consider the millions of interactions the police have with Americans every year, the amount of wrong conduct by the police is extraordinarily small.   Crime has exploded, since 1960, which anyone who knows math halfway decently can tell.   Keep in mind police have already been caught cooking the books too, so these crime rates are probably not representative of the real rates and are probably too low.

So the question comes up, are police racist towards black men in America?  Anyone who takes the time to examine the actual data, not their media and academia influenced emotions or anecdotal evidence, recognizes the police are overwhelmingly not racist.  If they are racist, it’s towards white people.  Roland Fryer, a black Ivy League Professor, discovered police were not racist, because white police officers are more likely to shoot whites than they are to shoot blacks.  Police use of force towards blacks was higher, but that is to be expected because black instances of crime are much higher than other races.  Here are five stats on police killing blacks, which clearly show the police are not racist, if people take the time to consider the objective data.   Here are 7 statistics about black on black violence, showing that police violence towards blacks, or white violence for that matter, is hardly the problem.   In a 2016 Color of Crime study, it showed racial bias towards blacks by police or whites was negligible or nonexistent.

 

Further, look at the black on white crime rate, contrasted with the white on black crime rate!  If racism is a problem, judging on actions and behavior, who is racist in America?  It sure doesn’t look like whites and the police, as the Marxist media and schools constantly tell us.

Allen West, who is black, wrote an excellent article on problems which some in the black community are responsible for, but blame on whites.   Let me be clear, slavery and segregation were heinous wrongs, but those directly responsible are to be accountable, not whites who had nothing to do with it.  This  piece is not an indictment of blacks, it is rather a rebuttal to the charge that white America and police are largely racist towards blacks.  That is simply not true.  Blacks in America are the most powerful and wealthy group of blacks in any nation on earth.  Further, there are plenty of conservative blacks who disagree with the nonsense about America being racist and the police are out to get blacks, but the media and liberal blacks often brutally attack them or ignore them.  They are written off as Uncle Tom’s and other even worse remarks.

What the liberal media and academia hate to talk about is two issues that all communities face, but which are more pronounced in the black community, though it was not always this way.  They say resentment is like drinking poison, it kills you, not your enemy.  And by whipping up race resentment over slavery and segregation with terms like systemic and institutional racism, it ensures problems in the black community will only grow, and not be healed.  There are no problems in the black community that I haven’t seen in my own family, the only difference is that those in my family who act bad are held accountable, including myself.

No matter what race a person is, not having a married father at home, and being functionally illiterate will increase the chances of poverty and criminality.  Our jails are full of this.  In the black community, the out of wedlock birth rate is 75%.  It can’t be because of slavery and segregation, because in 1942, the rate was 14%, when segregation was really an issue.  Also, when Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, 2% of the black community could read, and 20 years later, 99% could.  Today, 75% of black boys in California are functionally illiterate. So the problem cannot be segregation and slavery.  It may be the soft bigotry of low expectations, which causes black children to be passed along without understanding math or english, and prevents them from being disciplined out of a fear that whites will be called racist for doing so, when it is deserved.

It would be astonishing if anyone of any race can say they have never been offended or wronged by someone of another race.  However, each of us knows more about our own wrongs than we do about all the combined wrongs done by others to us.  No one on earth knows our own personal wrongs as well as we do, which should give us pause before we begin aggressively highlighting others wrongs done to us.  The appeal to anecdote is a logical fallacy.   Personally, I was bullied by black students in Jr. High.  But my closest friend in elementary, in church, and in Jr. High and High School was black.  I attended a church that had all races.  I do not let my negative experiences with a few people of a race color my view of the entire race.  We would be a lot healthier city, state, and nation if we all had that attitude.  There are good and bad people of all races.  There is racism in all races, towards all races.  None of our races is exempt.  It is a natural tendency to want to think of one as superior or a victim due solely to race.  The wise reject this.  What if every race in America demanded to have people like them be their bosses or politicians?  We’d have chaos!  We would devolve into a  nation of color tribes, where reason and character no longer mattered.   I understand there are many in the black community who harbor grievances for treatment they received from whites.  However, a mark of greatness is to isolate that grievance with the person who perpetrated it.  It is exhausting and draining to try to attack entire races for the behaviors of those who are dead, or the behavior of a few members of that race.

It is necessary to go back to judging on character, not on color.

We can heal, if we will go back to learning morals, the Bible, and history, and to put aside our pride.  Our skin color has absolutely nothing to do with our character, and until our entire society recognizes this, we will continue to have those who do not cherish character, who will continually promote color, and continue to sow discord and chaos in our society.  None of us chose our color, and none of us should desire to be recognized because of it.  All of us choose our character, and all of us should desire to be recognized due to that.

Mark 11:

[23] For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
[24] Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
[25] And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
[26] But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Jesus

Holding racial animosities against entire races will ensure that the holder never prospers or is happy, and will bring further adversity.
