Ray Charles reached out from the crypt to comment on the Jussie Smullet affair. He wanted everyone to know that even though he is both blind and dead, he could see from where he was that something did not seem right with the whole matter. Ray said that if people were willing to remove their blinders, they too could have seen that there may be more to the story. As the saying goes “none so blind as he who will not see.” That seems to be the default position of the left and the Democrat party. They are willingly blind to the reality of life in this country. They are emotionally invested in the idea that America is a cesspool of racist hatred. Instead of simply battling racism where it does show its ugly head, and then keep moving, they jump for joy because they get a situation to exploit. The Jussie Smullet story proves it one more time.
So now we know that there is a lot more to the story than Mr. Smullet would have us initially believe. The story quickly began to unravel after he first made the claim, and the sordid details are now all over the news. Now to be truthful, who knows!?! It is possible to be the victim of a hate crime in Chicago. Keep in mind though that in Chicago, 88 percent of the people voted against Donald Trump. It is not impossible that he would be attacked by two white supremacists shouting “this is MAGA country,” in the middle of a city that is predominantly black, with a large gay population, where virtually no one voted for Trump, at two in the morning, in the freezing temperatures of a polar vortex, after waking up to have a snack and realizing that he had nothing to eat at his place, then heading out in the freezing cold where he was beaten and rubbed. Whew! It is possible but unlikely. Ok, let’s get back to the point. The point is that if this incident happened exactly as Smullet claims it did, it does not prove that white supremacy is a major problem in the country. The reality is that white supremacists are not running roughshod across America. The Klu Klux Klan is not a group that has any influence in America. The handful of Nazis in America are not power players socially, politically, economically or otherwise. They hold no sway. If they hold a rally, no more than a handful are represented. They are always outnumbered tenfold by counter protesters who wish to make it very clear to them that their vision for America is not wanted or welcomed.
Displays, accusations, or the slightest hint of racism is the fastest way to get people ostracized in American society today. Businesses, educational institutions, and other organizations are always putting systems in place to ensure that racism is aggressively tackled. There is a whole branch of government that is committed to fighting racism in the workplace, people can file individual lawsuits, class action suits are common. Many times businesses are willing to just settle if they are accused of racism. HR departments across the country work hard to ensure that people are treated fairly on the job, but none of these things matter, or is enough for the race pimps in the Democrat Party, and on the radical left to accept that the system is not out to get black people. They’d rather take incidents like what allegedly happened to Smullet, and gleefully hold it up as an exhibit of America’s resentment of black people.
It is sad because the United States remains so needlessly divided on race, based on lies propagated by a handful of power hungry people whose modus operandi is to divide and conquer. Jussie Smullet should be a case study in victimology. Here is a young, handsome, successful black man with the world at his feet, but is not enough by that. He has fallen in to the trap that so many black people have fallen into, displaying an eagerness to wallow in the mire of victimhood. In addition, too many white guilt ridden liberals continue to promote the idea that black people are victims of white America. They have this need to present themselves as woke heroes of the black man. These white liberals who want desperately to assuage their guilt ridden conscience for the evils of generations past, and show the world that they are good whites have a big role to play in this unfortunate saga. They need to stop! Leave black people alone if that is the only way they think that they can offer their help to the black community.
