Racism by Any Other Name…

The video in the post below is difficult to watch. It is sad, disheartening and troubling. It is also dangerous because if this is where we are headed as a country, the consequences of this kind of sectarianism will be devastating. In listening to these beautiful, seemingly intelligent women speak, one is forced to wonder what drives this type of cynical, and almost dystopian view that they have of the country.  As they rail against Trump and white America, they readily latch on to these terrible views as they embrace stereo types about a whole group of people. These women who are citizens of the United States, with all of its laws, protections, and systems in place to protect everyone against discrimination, honestly see themselves as part of an underclass group of citizens. They see themselves as persecuted in America. To boost their claims of persecution, they cite some anecdotal evidence that they are certain is proof of their status as second class citizens. They use their status as victims to retreat into a cocoon where they get their beliefs and their stereotypes reinforced by like minded provocateurs who share their awful beliefs.

If there is one American who is not bothered by this type of small minded attitude that is a part of leftist ideology, then the country is in a precarious state. This is the kind of rhetoric that should stoke the outrage of every American because it is the opposite of what so many have fought so hard to overcome. The blood of many Americans has been shed in the struggle to overcome this kind of hatred and bigotry in the effort to make America a place where people would be judged by the content of their character as Dr. Martin Luther King once powerfully declared, but here we are. Fifty years after the death of Dr. King, and black people, who more than others, should be weary of this type of attitude, are the ones who are promoting it without any blow back from people in the media, in Academia, Hollywood or regular Americans. This is really outrageous, and if people continue to be given a pass when they speak and behave this way, then; we are in a pretty dark place.

We can be sure that If a group of white women with their own justification for having a similar retreat was to do something similar, there would be no end to the calls of condemnation, but because it is a group of black women, it is ok. It is a guarantee that any rally promoting white supremacy will have more protestors than people attending in support of it. People overwhelmingly respond to white racism in a way that makes it very clear that there is no tolerance for it, and that is the way that it should be. The same principle should apply when dealing with black racism. It is time to put a stop to this nonsense before it begins to truly get out of control and tear the country apart.

When you look at these women, they seem like average, regular Janes.  They don’t seem to be aggressive. They are not loud and obnoxious, they are quite articulate and, they carry themselves with decorum. That makes them even more dangerous. They are dignified, pushing a very dangerous ideology. If anyone reading this thinks that this view of these women is exaggerated, read the words of the leader of the retreat again. She says “I have no tips for a white person” she said “My tip to white people is to let us have our space, let us have our room, and go hang out with other white people. We’re okay. You know, you’ve done enough damage.” She said that she “decided one day to just eliminate white people from my personal life” due to “micro aggressions” and “passive-aggressiveness.” She even believes that white people should not have passports. Observe that none of them gave any real examples of the racist persecution that they talk about in their lives, just regular stuff that everyone has to deal with in some form or another at some time, in other words, life.

While women around the world have to deal with real problems like female genital mutilation, sex slavery, forced marriages as young girls, acid baths, honor killings, denied education and many other hardships, these women sit in their retreat pushing racial segregation while marinating, and basking in their victim status.

It is ironic indeed to hear one of these women declare that her “blackness is strength,” in a brazen display of weakness, as they talk about safe spaces and micro aggressions.

Black people, reject the Democrat Party. This is where they wish to have you. This is the plantation on which they wish to keep you.
