A Brief for Whitey

Comment

How would he pull it off? I wondered.

How would Barack explain to his press groupies why he sat silent in a pew for 20 years as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright delivered racist rants against white America for our maligning of Fidel and Gadhafi, and inventing AIDS to infect and kill black people?

How would he justify not walking out as Wright spewed his venom about "the U.S. of K.K.K. America," and howled, "God damn America!"

My hunch was right. Barack would turn the tables.

Yes, Barack agreed, Wright's statements were "controversial," and "divisive," and "racially charged," reflecting a "distorted view of America."

But we must understand the man in full and the black experience out of which the Rev. Wright came: 350 years of slavery and segregation.

Barack then listed black grievances and informed us what white America must do to close the racial divide and heal the country.

The "white community," said Barack, must start "acknowledging that what ails the African-American community does not just exist in the minds of black people; that the legacy of discrimination — and current incidents of discrimination, while less overt than in the past — are real and must be addressed. Not just with words, but with deeds ... ."

And what deeds must we perform to heal ourselves and our country?

The "white community" must invest more money in black schools and communities, enforce civil rights laws, ensure fairness in the criminal justice system and provide this generation of blacks with "ladders of opportunity" that were "unavailable" to Barack's and the Rev. Wright's generations.

What is wrong with Barack's prognosis and Barack's cure?

Only this. It is the same old con, the same old shakedown that black hustlers have been running since the Kerner Commission blamed the riots in Harlem, Watts, Newark, Detroit and a hundred other cities on, as Nixon put it, "everybody but the rioters themselves."

Was "white racism" really responsible for those black men looting auto dealerships and liquor stories, and burning down their own communities, as Otto Kerner said — that liberal icon until the feds put him away for bribery.

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.

Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard.

And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.

Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.

Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.

Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

Barack talks about new "ladders of opportunity" for blacks.

Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for "deserving" white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

Obama's grandmother comment was more about MALES than about BLACK.

Ask a typical woman and most likely she would say it is the adult MALE of any color that is far more threatening prospect to encounter than a female of any color. Women have good reason to be fearful of strange men. This is a gender perspective from living as a woman.

I challenge the news media to go to Hawaii and ask Obama's grandmother was it the color or the gender that disturbed her most?

Dear Pat,

I too believe that Sen Obama is in trouble. I think people particularly the strategists are disregarding all people's belief in Jesus Christ. Not just a "personal" faith perspective of who Jesus is, but those who know and believe that Jesus Christ is God. Sen. Obama said he believes in Jesus and God? Sen. Obama has equated his personal understanding of the Sermon on the Mount differently from an obscure verse of St. Paul? That was way out there.

Then Pat, there is God. Now after all, you and I both know this whole world thing is God's idea. No strategists, no charismatic personality will overcome that fact. We have come to a point in life that Jesus Christ can not be put in a separate category to please one's personal faith, Jesus either counts or He never has. Black, White, Yellow, whatever color you are, if you believe in Jesus Christ, you can not really embrace Sen. Obama. Not to mention, any man or woman who does not recognize the unborn as worthy to protect then you have someone who walks as close to Satan as the demons he controls.

You are staying strong in your positions Mr. Buchanan and I hope you continue to stay strong.

Pat, Has the African-American community thought about this.... If Obama is nominated and then becomes President, Obama will hold the highest job position in America. Why should America need affirmative action? Affirmative action and other programs to help the African-American community should be eliminated. Why has the media kept this topic silent?

Mr. Buchanan, the clips America saw of Rev. Wright were cut out of context. Please watch his original sermon here http://bravenewfilms.org/blog/33350-more-fox-lies-jeremiah-wright-the-whole-sermon . I think you may realize that things are not as simple as they may appear.
PS: I don't know if you have heard about something called the cycle of poverty. Because if you had, you would realize why statistically speaking, if you were born in the bottom 10% (economically speaking), there is a 99% chance that your grandchildren will also be in the bottom 10%. Similarly, if you were born in the top 10%, there is a 99% chance that your grandchildren will also be in the top 10% in their time. Some semblance of mobility happens within the middle 80%, but the bottom 10% seem to hit a ceiling while the top 10% seem to be protected by a "floor."

Mr. Buchanan, I must comment on your editorial. Obama has asked nothing of "white America" he has asked for an investment and collective effort by Americans to understand our past and shape our future. We will be destroyed as the Balkans if we do not collectively move forward as Americans.
First of all, how dare you belittle the experience of slavery and discrimination by Blacks in this country, that somehow we should be thankful for this experience. SO I assume the Jews should be happy about the Holocaust because now they got Israel? Before the experiences of slavery being imported to the West and colonialism, there were kingdoms in Nubia, Mali and Timbuktu that were known for being vast resources of gold and education in ancient times. Yes, there was always slavery in Africa and other parts of the world, but do the economic conditions of the American South, the shear volume of slaves needed to fill economic needs were great and different from any mass enslavement experienced in human history. Psychologically, because Africans needed to accept their enslavement and Europeans needed to be comfortable enslaving in a country based on the principles of freedom, we are all suffering from post traumatic slave syndrome in which we have been taught to see ourselves as separate and one group inferior, one group superior. Decades after slavery, discrimination and segration had a real effect of creating low expectations for Black and inhibitied the accumalation of wealth in our communities. Well meaning policies such as public housing and welfare exaserbated these issues. Self defeating behaviors such as the drug economy and high rates of single motherhood continue to limit progress. It does not matter if you do not like Obama for president, these are realities and Obama is right we need to talk about it honestly without the guilt of "white America" automatically feel as if "Black America" wants a financial handout. We need solutions.
What is wrong with equal investments in all schools and neighborhoods so tha educational prospects are high and crime is kept at bay. Yes, blacks must bear a personal share of the burden, we must build strong families and emphasize positive behaviors such as education. These things are not missing from black communities, but they need to become more widespread . But we deserve strong effective leadership and investment in our infrustructure just as out white brethren. The environmental and economic realities are just too different to continue, allowing the continuing languish of high rates of imprisonment and health disparities becomes a drain on local resources. For all this country's history, Black died for this country in every conflict ever fought, Revoluntionary War to Iraq today. We helped build roads and cities and cars and ships just as our White brethren have. THIS IS AS MUCH OUR COUNTRY AS YOURS Mr Buchanan, we have bled and we have cried for America so how dare you turn your backs and say now our problems are not America's problems.
I can continue about the past Easter weekend and how this country needs to experience resurrection, but Mr. Buchanan, we need personal resurrection in our hearts and minds. You are now Rev Wright to me, I enjoy a lot of your comments, but I REPUDIATE this column.
Thank you

Pat Buchanan has concretized my feelins entirely - we HAVE given more to the black community in the last 40 years than they have ever admitted- a real case in point - in a distressed city in the the hudson valley new york area - habitat for humanity is putting up homes - when you drive by what you see is THIS - * white men working their butts off framing things - and twice as many black men sitting on the sidelines on their butts watching them - the key to breaking the cycle of poverty is education - and there are are plenty of grants etc that the black communtiy has priority access to - - I have no more tolerance for being lectured to by those who think we havent given enough - my thought is that we have to STOP giving to the black community and let them work for what they get just like every one else

This opinion piece is 100% accurate. As a person of mixed racial heritage, I have suffered from prejudice and other forms of discrimination in my life. I also was raised by parents who had barely enough to cover food and shelter - much less college. However, I was raised by a mother and father who taught me the value of education and of saving money for the future. I have never asked anyone to give me any special privilege. Neither have I asked for any sort of compensation for what my own ancestors experienced.
In America, you can choose to go to technical school or a public college, and get an education - regardless of your financial ability. All you have to do is study hard while you are in high school. During and after college, if you choose to associate with people who can advance your goals, your career and who provide you with positive reinforcement for high ideals, you can achieve success in a job or profession.
If you choose to marry, then stay married to the same woman or man for many years (by learning how to compromise and give-and-take to "keep love alive"), you can support yourself and save money for the future.
The problem with most people who claim they are "disadvantaged" is that they have made wrong choices in their lives. People of color should work on helping each other to stay in school, study hard, associate with decent, hardworking, successful people - and save money like crazy.
America has the most level playing field in the world. My grandfather was a sharecropper. I was the first generation of my family to graduate from college and to achieve a degree of financial success. Nowhere else in the world can a family advance from subsistence farming to financial independence in less than 50 years.

In America, people will succeed if they are raised by a family that teaches their children to study hard, stay married, go to church and save money.

Are you kidding me? The whole article was overtly racist. Does he seriously think all those government programs were designed for blacks when in-fact there are more whites on food stamps, medicare, welfare, etc? For anyone who thinks the racial divide is over, let's take a look at our congress, how many are minorities? How many non-white male presidents have we had? How many racist jokes have you let slide in your workplace, home or community?

Regarding Rev. Wright. Amen. Quote me one racist thing he said because I haven't heard one yet. As someone who considers himself a patroit (an actual veteran not someone who has a yellow ribbon on my car) I'm not offended at all by what Rev. Wright said. In no way was he saying we deserved 9/11. He was saying we've had problems with our foreign policy. The funny thing to me about neo-cons is they think terrorist are crazy (which they are) and they only hate our freedom. They have a lot more reasons to why they want to kill us. These reasons are not justified but if we don't understand them, how can we prevent them?

Well put! It's good to see someone posting with reason and clarity here.
What's amazing to me is the amount of focus on one pastors comments while we have so many other pressing and important issues to confront. Pat doesn't think we're capable of thinking and realizing that he's a political dinosaur. His history of crazy ideas and incendiary statments go waaaay back, including actual praise for Hitler's leadership and carisma. WoW. The only thing Pat wants to do is write inflamitory articles to drum up readership so he can get back into the spotlight. I can't believe people take his garbage seriously.

Wow. I am a liberal and never thought I'd agree with Buchanan, but he's expressed my feelings exactly. I am so fed up with black crime and the attitude that whatever bad choices blacks make, somehow whites are always to blame. I am tired of whites being demonized. Racial relations are a two-way street, and as far as I can tell, because of white guilt, blacks are getting away with not having to do anything other than blame and complain.

Re: Stacy Racial relations being a two-way street is pretty much what i heard expressed in Obama's speech. He mentioned how government benefit programs have often times made many things worse for the african american community, and a person should never let history become an excuse on how they live their lives. at the same time he also pointed out that there is a history that shouldn't be forgotten, one of an entire race that was enslaved for generations. this type of human enslavement does have ramifications which effect generations that come after them. but that this should not be an excuse for anti-social behavior or to blame failure on this. that all communities should embrace the law and individual responsibility. Being able to recognize were we came from and what happened is important to a culture such as ours.
This is what i heard in his speech and nothing of what buchanan is saying. i too am liberal, and Obama does NOT yet have my vote. but i think Buchanan is being disengenuous in his critisism of Obama's speach and that he has ulterior motives, which is something I really do not like when it comes to critiquing a candidate.
it seems as if Buchanan's article is trying to kindle anger and resentment while Obama's speech tried to calm. also, i think it's important to note that Obama did take a risk in this speech, his candidacy depended on it. and the message was one of unifying the races. no matter how you spin that, it's something to repect and applaud. Buchanan's article is one to separate and inflame. i don't respect that.

How dare you lecture anyone on what they listen to in their churches!! For years you sat in your churches and listened to your church father's tell you how the white race was superior and black race inferior. Your churches and church fathers have been spewing hatred and divisive statements for years. It was your church father's who sat back and allowed the rise of Hitler, your churches who sit back today on their fat haunches while supporting crooked politicians who drink out of the same bloody cup as the dictators and hatemongers that commit the genocide and ethnic cleansing going on throughout the world. You spent years spewing ethnic cleansing in your churches and still do say today. Always hinting at the so-called superiority of white christians. How dare you even attempt to analyze what any other person listens to in their church you holier than thou hypocrite.

Regardless of the utter rubbish that Pat writes he will always have the support and admiration of ignorant and lazy people who refuse to avail themselves of information about the causes of African American poverty and the general crisis facing that group. There is such a thing as 'white guilt' and so any semblance of an explanantion for the present state of Black America which shifts the blame from white folks will naturally be embraced by many who are desperately looking for water to wash their hands dripping with the blood of successive generations of black folks. Surely, blacks are not blameless in all of this, but the undeniable facts speak for themsleves. Years of victimization, oppression, discriminiation in every form, systematically left out and kept back would have naturally wreaked untold suffering and the results cannot be eliminated in one generaion or with $40 trillion . I agree with Revd Wright and salute him for his gutsy speech- indeed the chickens have come home to roost!

Well, at least he said what he meant. In most cases, we're distracted by political correctness which disallows an honest debate about white racism and black disadvantage. Pat B. is straight forward in his beleif that blacks should be happy that they were enslaved for nearly 200 years, then denied citizenship, equal occupational and investment opportuniteis, and basic human dignity for another 100, and then, given relatively little federal assitance to assimilate and help them compete with other Americans. And, through all of this, he believes that only blacks, no one else, are solely responsible for their poor social-economic condition. We don't have to spend three weeks trying to figure out what Pat B. meant, he said it very plainly, he believes in white supremacy. I disagree with Pat B.'s position that blacks should be gratious to white America for liberating them from their heathen and otherwise uncivilzied state, but at the very least we don't have to engage in double speak and waste our time trying to figure out why some whites and many blacks don't view America through the same prism. Pat B. like some whites just don't want to share power, neighborhoods, schools, social and phsycial space with blacks because they believe in white supremcacy. And, many other whites don't have a problem with white supremacy, at least not enough to challeng public officials to address the status quo in which whites and blacks live in seperate and extremely unequal Americas.

Its to bad that over the years of racial injustices and lynching and slavery that White America still believe we should be greatful to White people. Blacks wouldn't need to be lifted up by whites..we do fine on our own. that is when we are not being treated unfairly in all aspects of american life. Obama will rise to the top despite the media focusing on BS and trying to use things like his pastor against him. We as black people see right thru people like you and the Clintons. It will be about time a black person is in charge. Maybe then America can get some "ACT RIGHT" GO OBAMA!!

Do you know what I like about this site? It gives me a chance to find out where the racist cowards of this country go to show their real colors. You smile in the faces of blacks each day, yet come here to denounce a the race that BUILT this country. You people are nothing more than a bunch of underhanded two faced cowards. Your racism and unbridled hatred for black people and anything that you see remotely as unseating the face of white supremacy, smacks of a under evolved group of of animals hell bent on what ever you believe to be your God given right. Every race you have touched sense you have left your European homeland, you have single handedly dissimated, destoryed, or controlled for your own gain. You get pissed off when some one has the nuts to say what and who you really are. No the dead of Sept 11 didn't deserve to die. But this comment about "the chickens coming home to roost ",has merit. Tell the truth and shame the devil. Not thinking that are world policy....maybe....just maybe.....played a role in the tragedy is a fictional bed time story that white America tells itself. The rest of the world knows exactly why it happened. No terrorist puts us at risk like a bunch of egomaniacs thinking that they can parade around the globe screwing over who ever they want to.
Now you bottom feeding scuz buckets take a little too much pleasure in grouping two unrelated people. Both Obama and Rev. Wright have stated on air, that he was not Obama's spiritual guru. Rev Wright said himself that he was just his pastor. Obama has said from the outset that he denounces and disagrees with what Rev Wright has said. Why is that not enough? Hillary Clinton was not asked to devorce her husband because he out right lied to the country................Hillary Clinton was not pushed to remove her husband from the Campaign trail after uttering racist remarks in rallies in SC before the primary. She was slapped on the wrist by the media for lying about being shot at. WHY IS THAT??????? Why are the Clintons teflon? The same reason that you can attack a Black candidate doggedly over a RESOLVED issue that he has stated AGAIN and AGAIN. REV WRIGHT is not OBAMA!!!! Stop equating the two just because they are black!!!!!!! Stop making it so obvious that you are simply jumping on the opportunity to destory a man of color in his prime of taking the helm of the country. Are you honestly that scared to have a black president? Will you all sell your souls instead of taking the chance to set it free? You have a chance to prove Rev Wright wrong, or are you all too pig headed to grasp that?

I am so sick of whites stating that we should get over slavery and racism of the past. What really irks me is how you white people think that all black people are criminals, welfare reciepents, lazy and unemployed. I came from a middleclass Black family where both of my parents worked good jobs until they retired. Did that stop racism or hatred by you people? No it didn't. Stop thinking that you know what we need to do to better ourselves. Please stop thinking and saying that we are blessed to be in America. How in the hell would we know white slaveowners stole us from our own continent to bring my African ancestors here to build this damn country. Whites need to get over the hate against the darker race.

Re: mcccmar45
How can you agree with him on a subject such as this? Those so-called support systems that were created were not just for "black folks." It was created to help lift this country's poor society. I am sorry to tell you this but when I walked into the DSS for a job interview, guess how many whites were there? America needs to realize that this country cannot survive without the help of all races. Maybe we need to see what race has set many of the trends for the United States and how it is mocked in many other countries as well. My parents has worked all of their lives on their jobs but seem to make about $11 an hour. What do you say about that? How can you work over 30 years and only make this amount of money. It wasn't because they didn't go to work. It is amazing how you are praising this man comments to the black race, but you seem to dissapprove of the comments made by Jeremiah Wright about the KKK. Why does a black man go to jail for stealing a television that may average out to about $200 but a white person can steal thousands of dollars and only pay a fine. I think what Barack is doing is courageous, but at the same time dangerous. I say this because what if it was Barack that created the termoil that Bush did, would you react differently. Bush gets to leave office and still collect taxpayers money on top of all the money he has helped his oil company buddies make (off of American people). What does white America think of this? Billions of dollars are being spent to help another country gain freedom when America has yet to grant complete freedom to its own people. When you refer to black people as being ungrateful it shows where this country really sits on equal opportunity. You say you give and African Americans take as if they have done nothing to uplift this country. Now it shows why other countries have so much distrust for the United States. It wasn't the African Americans that has put this country in the destruction it is in, and the last thing this country needs is for each race to start speaking out about other race. We must as a country start working together to build each other and stop trying to be an individual. Maybe Pat needs to read his bibile again because we all know that God knows nothing about hatred. African Americans does have the highest percentage of people in prison, but look at the reason most of them are in there for. Who introduced drugs into this country? When you do your research you might be astonished about some of the things you will learn. Oh yeah, on that Duke situation, is that any worse than when a white woman claims to be raped by a black man but it turns out the assailant was a boyfriend or husband? This country need to rise as a nation or it will fall as individuals. Let's take away the money African Americans spend in this country and let's see if the stocks will rise or fall. Not all African Americans live on welfare but who dares to reveal that because this country would be surprise to find out how many White Americans are use it. Who would be the blame for that?

Barack didn't just talk about the racisim against black peopled in his speech! He also talked about racisim against people of all backgrounds, and he gave examples of why white people would be justified in their anger!!
You clearly didn't listen to what he had to say.

Pat,
Your message is pathetic. You speak of black men raping white women Do you forget that whte slave owners raped and beat black women because they were considered less than cattle. Black men and women as well as well intentioned white men and women were beaten and hung with the blessings of the government and church.
Yes, whites brought christianity to the savages black, native american (which they tried to wipe off the face of the earth which in my opinion is no better than what the Nazi's did to the Jews) I won't even mention that after teh war those same Nazi war criminals were allowed to come to the US ad live because of course in the end they are white. And yet Blacks and Native Americans fought in every war this country dragged us into to "Promote Democracy and Christianity throught the world" but upon returning from war saving many white mens lives on the battle field they were still regulated to the colored only facilities delapidated schools and put back in thier place. White men allowed Iraqi citczens in the US to vote in teh Iraq elections. We bent over backward to try and install our puppet government over there but during the Presidential elections those displaced by Katrina living in America were not allowed to vote. I wil stop now so that I am not regarded as unpatriotic. The founding fathers did not qualify Patroitism as the following blindly behind the Government but speaking out on failures of the Government. It never ceases to amaze me how a white man can say or do anything in america and its great but let a Black man speak (it's even worse if he speaks the truth) He is mocked, ridiculed and told if he does not like this country go back to Africa, I say that we should all go back to where we came from including whites going back to Europe.

All I can say is WoW! If you believe this country is in turmoil because of the African American race than you have a lot of researching to do. African Americans doesn't have anything to do with the rise of gas prices, the debt the country has accrued, or how the taxpayers dollars are continuouly misused. Maybe the blame should be pointed towards the people that were elected to run the country, city, or state. We should not base our opinions on our dislikes of other races but we should based them on the right person for the job. It is obvious that it was a mistake to place Bush in the office and the sad part is that he will still live off of taxpayers money for a long time. What candidate will be able to clean up Bush's mess without covering up what he did. Do you know how many billions of dollars are being used for the war in Iraq, and lets not forget about the forgotten war in Afghanistan. My husband has fault in these wars for a country that doesn't even recognize him as being capable to comprehend. Do you even care about the soldiers that are dying to fight for another country's freedom but doesn't even have freedom in his own country. It is not the African Americans fault that the United States is hated by many other countries. It is easy to point the finger at someone else but maybe you redirect that finger. America seems to fill with so much hatred for other cultures that they feel are norms for their society. Well news flash, not all African Americans steal, rob, rape, murder, or even live in the hood just like not all White Americans are rednecks, have rotten teeth, are missing teeth, steal taxpayers money, live in a trailer, rape, and murder. We all have to stand together and not just with a certain race. If we continue like this as individuals than we wont last as a country.

Re: Stacy
Stacy it is so amazing that you would make that comment because white people seem to have this problem with blaming black people with everything that goes wrong in it. If you actually take a look at some of the black people sitting in jail you would find that many of them are there for a drug related issue. If this country continue to point the finger at other races than it will fall, but then there will be a race war. I remember hearing a comment about how to bring America down, I believe the person said that all you would have to do is divide the races. We must come together as a nation or we will fall as individuals. We can no longer continue to point fingers not unless we are standing in a mirror. This political race is turning into the battle of the racist. It is not the black people that has put the country in recession, but the people who lead it. Why isn't one speaking on the billions of dollars to fight in a war that should have never existed, or about all of the funds that have donated to stem cell research, or how Bush worked for Enron and our gas prices has almost tripled since he been office. What about the real issues? This country is loaded with illegal immigrants who are taking jobs from real Americans and legal immigrants. If you notice Jeremiah Wrights hold speech was not provided only a certain part, but isn't buchanan speech the same thing? America seems to only focus on the negative part of a situation and they seem to lose focus on the positive. I don't have to be black or white to see what will be happening to America in the near future. It seems our White Supremist and our Black Power wants to start showing and that is what will get us in trouble. It is not the everyday black peope walking in malls and food places taking other down with them, but I guess the black race drove them to it. No race is perfect and they all have bad seeds in them, but it amazes how one can point out. There are how many whites in this country compared to blacks? When we have fight in that big war, will white supremist fight it alone or will they ask for the aid of the blacks (as they have before). I guess we will see. Maybe black people should stop spending their money in certain area because i bet that will put a damper in someone's pocket.

Growing up in abject poverty in a foreign country, I am grateful for the opportunities the US provided me. I cannot understand why African Americans, despite having had vastly more opportunities than me when growing up, feel they are morally excused from responsibility to take care of themselves and their offspring wthout resorting to begging (welfare) or crime. Those black leaders who excuse irresponsible and criminal behavior and lay the blame at "whitey's" feet are nothing but con artists. The real problem is that white folks have been conditioned by the media to feel guilty about their success. Slavery? It has been going on since time immemorial and if I go back in time, my ancestors were in involutary servitude at the same time blacks were enslaved in parts of the US. But what does that have to do with me and my responsibility not to become a burden to my neighbors?

Re: Shennia Bryantwell from your comments you sound like a racists youreself. Why not try opening a book and study or ask someone who were the african kings who sold there "brothers" into slavery. Then for those people who say the blacks built this country why haven't they built there own country could DARF-$ and other 21st. century tribel countries in AFRICA. If man came from there what has happened to the oldest contineent which is black. UN is still sending charity to that country because that race of people are equal if not better then any other race. LOL What a waste of people on all the world

Pat needs to address Who. Who continues to keep Whites blind to the reality of failed policies? Who, Blacks? Me thinks not. Somebody has a powerful interest in seeing that Traditional American Whites remain divided and never, never, acting selfishly in their own interest. That wouldn't be good for the business.
Read some Shakespeare. Read the New Testament. White sons and daughters of England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, listen to the Nixon tapes. You know Who. Say it Pat. I dare you.

let's clear one thing up; the majority of us black folks were already here when you europeans got here. we do not all buy that story of being brought here from africa. we know who we are, and we know who those so-called "native americans" are to. don't think for a minute all of us fall in line with that african american bull crap. the only thing we should be grateful for is that the creator did not allow you to kill us all off nor completely erase our identity from our minds and hearts. all that we have received from this government was/is part of treaty agreements. all that you and your people have received from us is price-less...........

Get over it all you blacks.Pat is absolutely correct. All you have to do is look at Africa today. When the British controlled Africa it made sense today it is nothing but a hellhole. As for your great leader Obama he will not be president for very long as he is not a natural born citizen and we are going to prove it. White people were slaves before you and we are not still crying about it. Get a life.

Re: mcccmar45

Just because we have a president of color whites have deluded themselves into thinking they've been a positive influence on black Americans. Some facts:

Crack was introduced into the inner cities deliberately to debilitate the black community. See ex-MI-5 agent Michael
Casbolt at michaelcasbolt.com

AIDS is a man-made biological weapon on mass destruction designed to target the ETKN-4 enzyme of people of color.
The original intent was to eliminate enough of the African population in Africa in order for western nations to walk in and re-colonize to exploit the resources of Africa.

The Bronx fires in the '70's were a deliberate attempt to remove the black population there.

The levees in New Orleans were blown up so that mostly black areas were flooded in order to remove the black residents of New Orleans.

Whatever benefits blacks have gotten from america is as a result of hard work and tireless struggle-America has given NOTHING but a hard way to go for the black masses. To attempt to say otherwise is a lie.

The level of black wealth in America is virtually unchanged in the last 50 years-despite white attempts to point at Oprah and professional athletes as examples of black progress.

White society is based on lies. The casual way whites lie about virtually everything is unnatural for black and Native Americans. We don't do well in a society which values deceit and avarice as a way of conducting one's affairs.

Every where whites are-the indigenous have suffered. Whites know only how to spread chaos and confusion where ever they roam. The white man is death and destruction itself. All you have to do is look at history and watch current events to confirm what I say-the record is clear and undeniable

Whatever blacks have gotten from this society is as a result of tireless struggle and hard work. America throws a few crumbs and believes itself to be good and generous. What lies.

The backlash is on. White Amerkkka is on the move. Electing Obama is having the predictable reaction from the reactionary element. We in the black consciousness movement are taking notice. Any attempts at equalizing the relationship between whites and blacks is attacked by white America. It'll fail. We've been through way worse than whatever you intend to dish out now.

Soon we'll be turning out scholars and entrepreneurs in droves. What scares you is soon blacks will be completely free and independent of whites. You want and need us as slaves. You think we need you to prosper. You are afraid of having to compete with us on a level playing field. You better get used to it.
