To all the radical minority loving left-wing neo-Marxists that are destroying America. Peace Love and Have a Happy New Year!!
Black folks make up 12 maybe 13% of the United States population. The unemployment rate for black men is around 16%. For black women it is around 13%. The only black owned television networks are BET (which was known for playing music videos all day long), TVOne (which will be showing their very 1st scripted show produced by them next year) and OWN (its Oprah so you will see a mix of races on her network). There are no national news anchors (6pm News) that are black. No blacks host their own news show on FOX, CNN, MSNBC or Headline News. But every now and again we have angry white folks complaining about how they are robbed by minorities. I call it the “Black Folks are taking over” complex. They said we were a more racially tolerant nation because of the election of the first black president. That’s (Insert foul word here) ____________!! Ever since the news reported about white folks being the minority in 2050, some of them have lost their damn minds!!! I hate they were even told that. Some people take a little piece of information and run with it. They never said that minorities would be running anything!! They said whites would be the minority and they never said who the majority would be!! No matter how many unplanned pregnancies black folks have (based on Maury Povich Statistics) it won’t be us. They keep trying to kick out anyone in this country that looks brown (so that rules out Latinos and Arab Americans). Asians would have to start producing a lot of babies and calling their cousins from the old country to increase their numbers. And Native Americans??? The ones that weren’t killed off by the people that stole their land are backed up on Reservations. Sure they make money from gambling but what’s a casino when you owned America. So who are these angry white folks really afraid of?
Two issues to discuss and then I’m done…
1. Leave the Comics alone!!!!
If one character named the “Black Panther” is bothering you, don’t read the book. Comic Books have always been socially conscious from gay characters, feminism, race, class and politics. The character was made during a cultural shift for black folks in this country. Don’t be mad because the story line involved evil white people!! Sure there are some evil black people out here but we only make up 13% of the population. So mathematically you have a larger probability of seeing more evil white people. Just like more white people are on welfare. Anyway the storyline is from a made up book about a made up character. None of this is real!!! Duh…..
2. Stop complaining about Athletic Prowess…
It’s not a conspiracy because people of “certain” races aren’t or are playing “certain” sports. A lot of it comes down to access and athletic skill. You never knew black folks did speed skating but we saw one in the Winter Olympics. Some black lady dragged her son out of the house to make sure he learned how to skate. God Bless her but I don’t like cold weather (along with a lot of black folks I know – let’s be honest!!) so it’s not for me. If you make sports available to everyone (regardless of suburban or hood affiliation), you will see more people participating in sports they previously weren’t associated with. The sports media loves the quintessential “Great White Hope”. Why do you think they give Brett Favre a pass on all the things he does? Why are Quarterbacks that pass from the pocket praised for their leadership and poise. Meanwhile the “running” Quarterbacks get praise for their athleticism and chastised for risk taking. But let Tim Tebow break out in a run and he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. If they could find a white receiver that runs like the wind or a white running back that reminds you of “Jim Brown” he will get noticed!!! Believe That!!!!
