Race in America


The battle cries of America

“Black Lives Matter”

“Hands up, don’t shoot”

“Boycott the Oscars”

The new cry is

If trump wins, I’m moving to Canada”…

Is this the America we want to live in? An America that runs, an America that see’s everything in Black or White, or better yet, as Black or White? I think not!

To me, America is much more than that, to me America is a country that has shown great strides and growth. A little over 7 years ago we elected the first Black President, Obama, he won twice. Yet some still cry racism…

Did the election Obama eradicate racism in America, no? Will anything eradicate racism in America, sadly, no? Racism in like a cancer on America, yet we are defeating it, but like a cancer, it never truly will go away.

Why, you may ask… Because we will always have ignorant people in this country, on both sides; Racism is not just a white person’s problem, its every living souls problem. All cultures and raciest have been and still are raciest. Does that mean we ignore the problem? Do we just sit back and stop calling out the raciest for what they are, ignorant people filled with hate?

No, we fight it, but to win the fight, we need to stop calling things and people raciest if they are not. We need to stop looking behind every motive and event to try and find that one thing, that one issue that we can call raciest. We need to start seeing and understanding that people can have differences, and they can dislike someone just for who they ate and not what color they are. I dislike Obama, not because he is black, but because his policies are hurting America. I dislike Obama because, in my eyes, he does not have the best interest of America in mind. He promised to fundamentally transform America, yet I feel there is no need to do so. America, at its core, is a strong nation, one with a good and solid backbone. Is she perfect, no she is not? America has lots of work to do, but division is not the way to accomplish it. And in my eyes, Obama has done more harm to race relations in this nation that any living person I know of. Granted, I do not know every American, but of all the people on the big stage of American politics, Obama is the most divisive by far.

Some may be saying, Hey Trump is a raciest… I truly have not seen that. Some will say he won’t condemn the KKK, sorry, I say him say it several times, that he disavowed them… Now, do I know Trumps or Obamas heart, nope, I can only go on what I see on the news or read.

NOTE:  Just so you know, I read both liberal and conservative reports and watch both conservative and liberal news cast. Also, I am not a big Trump fan, I do like some of his stances on issues, but overall, and he is not my top choice for President.

Having said all that, back to the main point:

To the Oscars, Hollywood is one of the most liberal places in America, yet they still seemed to be called raciest… Odd really… Do we really want a quota at the Oscars? Could it be that the voting panel just didn’t see any worthy performances? Could it be that the actors and actresses of color just didn’t have any stand out rolls? I don’t know, I don’t go to the movies a lot, but I am inclined to believe that that is the case. Why do I feel that way…

Because Hollywood would be the first to jump on the bandwagon on race relations, they love looking like the great healer of the nation, and they are extremely liberal and will pick up any opportunity to make the conservatives look bad.

The battle cry of “Raciest” is strong, but if we keep using the word to describe any white person who dislikes any black person, of any perceived “white” organization snubbing blacks, then we will never get over racism. All we will do is cheapening the word. I have seen this already, the term raciest and come to mean, “You don’t agree with my point of view”. We have cheapened the value of the word, and soon it will have no meaning at all.

Words have value, they meaning. If we use words incorrectly, the value and meaning get lost. Epic is a great example. For a long time everything was epic. Someone went to lunch and had a good burger, all of a sudden, that burger that lunch becomes Epic… Nope I think not… Or how about the word fuck, do you realize that it was not even a word in the beginning, it was an acronym, it was originally spelled F.U.C.K… Each letter representing a word, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, Yet, now, the word is common place and has not true value to it.

Race relations will not improve until we learn that we cannot have the concept of “The Same but Different”… What does that mean…

  • Why is it racist to say I have white pride, yet not to say I have black pride?
  • Why is it not raciest to have the BET (Black Entertainment Television station), yet it would be if there is a WET?
  • Why is a White shooting a Black raciest yet a Black shooting a White not?
  • We have the NAACP, yet no WAACP

I could go on, but I will not, I think my point is made.

The argument that Blacks cannot be raciest, is, in-of-it-self raciest. You cannot disqualify on group from the act because of their color and state that that’s not a raciest act.

Our roads in America where paved with good intentions, over the years and throughout history, America has strived to right the wrongs, yet some of the acts where, in-fact, raciest.

Example, when a collage entrance exam for Whites and Blacks are the same, but the points needs differ based on color. That, my friends, is raciest. If Blacks and Whites are to be equal, then all test, exams and interviews must be conducted and counted equally. We cannot have 2 sets of standards and call ourselves non raciest. The very fact that we are applying two different criteria for the same position is, inherently, raciest.

America has a lot of work to do, but it will not change based on the governmental actions, it will only change with the conversation of the intellect and heart. Until we are willing to step up to the plate as individuals, take responsibility for our own actions, and understand that others may not like us, for a multitude of reasons, one being our skin color, and until we learnt that, hey, that’s OK, you don’t have to like me, and that does not make me any less of a person.

This is how we will change and grow. We neeed to keep calling out the bad in the America, we just don’t need to see bad in everything, there is a lot more good in America than bad.

God Bless

Public school recruits students to work for Hillary Clinton campaign | Fox News


Have they no shame?

A public high school in Maine was caught red-handed trying to recruit students to work on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign as a “community service opportunity” – without the knowledge or consent of parents.

Could you imagine the national media firestorm had the school been recruiting for Donald Trump’s campaign?

Students at Marshwood High School in South Berwick received an email from the Clinton campaign – urging them to sign up for positions as unpaid “fellows”.

Governor Requires Food Stamp Recipients to Volunteer Six Hours a Week, This Happens Right After


foodstampsFood stamp recipients in Maine got a rude awakening when Gov. Paul LePage decided to impose a three-month limit on benefits for able-bodied adults without dependents (Abawds).

Now, before all the raging liberals out there start throwing a hissy fit and talking about how much conservatives hate the poor and all that bleeding heart rhetoric, this limit is only enforced if the “Abawds” refuse to get a job working 20 hours a week, take job training, or volunteer six hours a week.

Guess what happened when this rule was enforced?

Nearly 80 percent of people on welfare were cut off the program because they refused to get a job or volunteer to work six hours a week.

Six hours a week was deemed too strenuous to work in order to receive free benefits.

Unbelievable isn’t it?

Politicians’ college loan fixes flawed – Hartford Courant


download

Republicans Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, John Kasich and Chris Christie all have plans or will soon. The same goes for Democrats Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley. Hillary Clinton joined the crowd last week with a $350 billion package of ideas.

It’s all aimed at helping young people afford to go to college and pay off the debts that come due later. For anyone running for president in 2016 — and hoping to win the millennial vote — promising to fix the student-loan mess seems essential.

It’s certainly a problem: More than 40 million young adults have unpaid college loans, almost twice as many as a decade ago. The total outstanding, $1.2 trillion, exceeds what households owe on their credit cards or car loans. One in six borrowers is delinquent or in default.

The first rule for a new program is, or should be, do no harm. Yet none of the plans released so far would do enough to lessen the need for students to borrow.

WOW… See, they have no idea what they are supporting…

San Diego talk radio host Mike Slater hit the streets over the weekend to quiz attendees of the gay pride parade and exposed their ignorance and knee-jerk reaction to conservatives.

Slater played “Which Bigot Said It” with a number people. His quiz featured a series of quotes defending traditional marriage as participants were to match the statement with photos of Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee or Rick Santorum.

Obama Ordered Flags to Half Mast for Newtown, But Not 5 Military Personnel Murdered in Tenn.


Obama is no statesmen, in fact he is the furthest thing from it:

noun, plural statesmen.
1.

a person who is experienced in the art of government or versed in the administration of government affairs.
2.

a person who exhibits great wisdom and ability in directing the affairs of a government or in dealing with important public issues.
This country is in great need of Statesmen, we lack them at all levels of government, both Republican and Democrats… But this, not lowering the flag, is a slap in the face of our military and all Americans… This man has no love of America nor love for your brave young men and women who proudly serve our Nation…

(CNSNews.com) – As of Monday morning, July 20, the U.S. flag continued to fly at the top of the pole above the White House and at the U.S. Capitol building, five days after a gunman launched attacks in which he murdered five U.S. military personnel at facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn.

President Barack Obama has yet to order the flags to half-staff following this tragedy. By contrast, in 2012, President Obama did order the flags flown at half-staff on the same day  as the shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

NEW YORK — The city is poised to begin providing free Internet broadband access to more than 16,000 residents of its sprawling public housing system.

Buildings at five of the poorest New York City Housing Authority complexes will start being wired for the high-speed connection this fall, officials told The Associated Press ahead of Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio’s public announcement, scheduled for Thursday.

The city will spend $10 million to deliver the Internet to residents of the Mott Haven Houses in the Bronx, the poorest area in the city; the Red Hook East and Red Hook West Houses in Brooklyn; and the Queensbridge North and Queensbridge South Houses in Queens. The Queensbridge Houses, the largest development in the nation, will be the first to receive the program.
