Bizarrely, racism in America is no longer mainly about race. Sure, race is involved in a peripheral manner, but racism has mainly become an excuse, a dodge, a way to escape responsibility.
When a black liberal is criticized, he cries racism. When liberalism fails, liberals cry racism. When the Democrat Party gets in trouble, liberals cry racism. It has become the ever present background noise of politics, like birds chirping in the forest.
I am White. I have friends of nearly every race, religion, ethnicity and political persuasion across the width and breadth of this planet. My earliest friends were Black, White, Hispanic and Asian. Included in this mix were Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Jews as well as a couple of Atheists. Most of these folks until this past decade were American but now, I number amongst my friends peoples from countries as far and wide as Scotland, Egypt, Cambodia, Thailand and Brazil.
I have been friends with this great mix of peoples for as long as I can remember.
These are not just people whom I label as friend and then ignore. I keep in touch with these people. I live with them. I work with them. I have helped them find employment. I have hired them for employment. I have assisted some financially. I have helped them improve their English. I have taught some life skills and job skills. They have hired me and recommended me for promotion. I have learned life and job skills from them. I have enjoyed their company and companionship and do so at this time. I have invited them to my homes and the home of my parents and siblings. I have played with their children and befriended their families.
I have debated various topics ranging from culture to religion and politics with them and discuss said topics and opinions with them openly. I agree with them on some topics and disagree with them on others.
I have lived my life openly and with as much love, warmth, humanity and companionship as is humanly possible.
Yet, if I dare not agree with Obama I am a racist.
On a smaller playing field, these same accusations were thrown at me when I dared to criticize Tubby Smith at Kentucky. Yet, when I criticize John Calipari, I am simply called a dumbass. lol
“Racism” is constantly at the forefront of the Obama Administration conversation.
I am not saying that racism does not exist. However, the Democrats reacted in similar manner to all things Bush. The Democrats called Bush every name in the book and even conjured more juicy names and labels for him and Cheney. No one said it was because of Race.
Republicans treated Bill Clinton far worse than they treat Obama. Yet, racism wasn’t constantly thrown in the face of the opponent.
Race, for better or worse, is a factor in nearly every facet of life across the whole of this planet.
The Obama Administration and Democrats act as though racism was invented in America by White Southerners.
It’s a ruse. It is a sidebar. It’s a deflection. It is cover and concealment for corruption.
They called the opponents of Nagin in NOLA racists. A few years later, Nagin is found to have been a corrupt turd and that corruption was a major factor in the fiasco that was Katrina.
Yet, no Democrat has come forward to say; “Doh! They were correct. Nagin was a turd. There was merit to the accusations and criticism.”
Racism with the Obama Administration is a crutch and nothing more. It has become meaningless.
Obama could be assassinated by the KKK and because of this administration’s constant use of Racism as a political tool, I’d find myself doubting that racism was the real reason behind the assassination.
This despite the fact that I have witnessed real racism against the Obama Administration.
