Norway ~ The Great White Hype

cover_may_2013_450_600_90_s_c1_center_center_0_0_1

The Left goes on and on complaining about White People, Old White men, White this and White that…

They bitch about ‪#‎WhitePrivilege‬.

They tell us all of our problems were and are created by White people.

Coz Whitey is BEE–AY–DEE…BAD!!!

Then…

They turn right around and tell us that we should be more like Norway.

Norway is one of the Whitest fucking Nations on the Whole Motherfucking Planet.

Up to and possibly exceeding 90% Crackerdom.

Another Nation mentioned is Iceland. It is also over 90% Cracker.

So, mayhap, you Lefties and LibDems are just a bunch of racist bastards afterall.

Why aren’t you pointing to all of the great success stories on the African Continent? You racist sumbitches!

I’m a White Dude

Camp Scorpion, Every 4 months

I’m a White dude — pure bred Cracker of Scots-Irish, Swiss origin. I think…that’s what legend tells me.

I’ve been subjected to racism. For instance, I was jumped by 8 Black guys when I was in the Army in Baumholder, Germany. I was one of four separate victims that night.

I never once used “Race” or “Color” to stereotype Black People. I don’t see life in binary colors.

I’ve had Black, Hispanic, Asian and, yes, White friends for as long as I can remember. I lived on Pope Street in Louisville, Kentucky. One street down the hill was Williams Street — home to the Page brothers who were pretty good boxers. We lived in the shadow of Muhammad Ali and we grew up believing him to be a larger than life hero.

I once walked into a room full of Black guys about half of whom were my friends. Jack, the guy who looked a helluva a lot like Ice Cube, yelled; “Hey fuckin’ Cracker! What the hell do you want?”

I answered; “Nothin’ Nigga!”

And the whole room cracked up laughing.

I’ve always had excellent relationships with anyone who wasn’t an ass.

I never really cared about the whole color thing on an individual level while simultaneously being fascinated by cultural differences.

Where I work now, my Boss calls me “White boy!” and I laugh and rejoin with “Nothing’, ya fuckin’ racist bastard.” And we all laugh.

I fully realize that my being White has contributed greatly to the ease with which I interact with and benefit from/with people and those who have hired me and for whom I have worked — Black, White, Hispanic, Araba, Asian and any other race you can name.

I know for a fact that being White has granted me access to places, events, people and things all over the world.

In China and most of Southeast Asia, people are fascinated by my “Whtie skin.” Asia has a “White is beauty, Black is ugly” dynamic that is, quite frankly, appalling. My girlfriend of several years used to tell me that she was Black. She’s approximately the color that most White girls aspire to when they are tanning. And when she tans, White women are jealous of it.

Strange, I know.

I constantly tell my girlfriend that she is beautiful. “Black” skin and all.

In Afghanistan, the Afghan Officers with whom I work told me that my girlfriend looks African and is too dark and that I should find a nice White woman and then show me photos of Iranian women who are only slightly lighter skinned than my girlfriend.

Skin color is confusing. The slightest shades make huge differences to people.

In Egypt, I was granted access to touristy places that were shut off to most because the strange tourist officials wanted to take pictures with the big white guy whom they kept calling Hercules. They virtually ignored my friend Humberto who was also American of Mexican origin because, well, he looked like them.

I have benefited from my skin color. I’ve also made great sacrifices to get to where I am. I’ve risked my life and taken chances that most Americans could never dream of.

I have helped many, many people along my journey. Some White, Some Black, Some Arab, Some Asian…Muslims, Christians, Atheists and Jewish, Buddhist and Hindu.

If I thought helping them would not come back to bite me in the ass or, more importantly, hinder me in helping others, I help others. I turned down my own White cousin when she asked for help with a recommendation and I told her the reason. She had a poor track record and I didn’t want her quitting on me and ruining it for some other who deserved the assist. She understood and we are still quite close.

I say all of this not to say that I’m a good person and not racist. I fully recognize that every human has built in and learned prejudices. I am not a good person. I’m not a bad person. I’m simply a human being who tries, sometimes fails and sometimes succeeds in treating others as I would like to be treated.

When “People of Color” (such a silly term…as if we aren’t all colored uniquely) make blanket statements about White people or White Americans, I get a bit touchy.

I’m a White person. I fully realize that racism exists and I have spent my life actively fighting it. I’ve called White and Black people out on their Bigotry. When a White friend used the word “nigger” in the privacy of our barracks room, I ripped him a new one. When a Black friend said all Afghans are “worthless raghead pieces of shit,” I ripped him a new one. Likewise when folks act foolishly and stereotype all Thai people when they’ve been insulted or in some way wronged by one Thai person, I refute their lunatic assertions that all Thai people are this, that or the other.

There is no such animal as a “person of color.” There are no two people on this planet that are the same color. “White” people are not bereft of color. I know White people who grew up in predominantly Black neighborhoods who “act Black” and cannot code switch to “Whitey-eze.”

I know Black people who cannot speak urban slang or “Ebonics.” I know 2ndGen Colombian-Americans who do not speak a word of Spanish and I know Mexicans who can barely speak English.

To portray all of any people any thing is an injustice. Constantly reading articles by “People of Color” and “Allies of People of Color” (I’m not ever sure what the hell that means…) telling me that “White people are…..” or “Why White people freak out when told they are racists” and other inane articles without an ounce of nuance irritate the shit out of me.

I cringe. Why? I know the reaction to these articles is nothing more than tens of thousands of minds slamming shut!

I know that if I made a stereotyping statement about any group except for “White” people, I would be branded a racist by those of you who wish to pretend that the world is divided between “people of color” and White people.

I know that I have seen Black people treated worse in Africa than I’ve ever seen them treated in America. I was born in 1968. I know that one of my good friends holds a hell of a lot of anger because of his upbringing in South Carolina and his Grandfathers treatment at the hands of White Southerners.

There is much injustice in America. There always has been. More than likely, there always will be.

There is racism, bigotry and discrimination in America. I know this for a fact.

None of these things will be solved…ever…if we do not learn how to have real, honest and open dialogue.

White people can experience bigotry including racism.

If any American ever stopped to think about it, Europeans (i.e., White People, Crackers, Whitey) are the minority on this planet. Europe began its ascendancy geo-politically a mere 400 years ago. Prior to that, the largest “White” Empire was Rome. There is much evidence that Rome was much more ethnic than the European Colonizers would have us believe.

At some point, we must begin to be honest with each other. We must be open. We must stop accusing all or none. We must accept differences. Not tolerate but ACCEPT and we must do so in an open manner.

I have seen this work.

I have always been accepted for who I am and have always accepted folks for who they are. I fell into it. I was lucky. I learned to look past differences early on in my life. I have been rewarded countless times for this fortunate accident.

It is…unfortunate that we can’t all simply accept differences and move on together.

Michelle Obama was Angry — “Whitey is still holding us down…” or was “he” (Re-visited)

I posted the original article and commentary about Michelle and Whitey almost a year ago.  It’s garnered quite a bit of interest.

Barack Obama is the man of the hour in US and World Politics.  He is the President-elect.  How does Michelle feel about her comments now about bars being set and raised now.  She was wrong then and she is wrong now.  The bar was set high on purpose.  No one should be handed the office of President of the United States of America.  Not Barack Obama.  Not anyone else.  (Not even George W. Bush for all of you who will zone in on Dubya.)  Barack Obama has won the election.  The American people have won this election.

My feeling on this issue is that many American Blacks do not see and experience America as it is today.  Too many experience their lives through the past.  They see America through the prism of America 20 and 30 years ago.  Many Black Americans are living with the racist history and past of America as if it is a friend or a childhood blanket that they can’t quite let go.  Before anyone starts, I realize that racism, discrimination and prejudice exist today.  Yet, it is nowhere near as common as it was 30, 20 even 10 years ago.

Also, those problems exist on all sides of the racial/color divide.  I’ve witnessed Black racism towards Whites, Asians and Hispanics.  I’ve witnessed White racism towards the same.  I’ve witnessed Asian racism towards Blacks, Whites and Hispanics.  I’ve seen these people all practice racism in one form or another against Arabs and others as well.

So what?  It exists. You live your life and work around it.  It will always exists.

There are extreme liberal prejudices against Christians.  There are extreme conservative prejudices against Homosexuals.  Many folks are prejudiced against Muslims due to the dangers posed by Islamic Extremism.

It’s there.  It will always be there.  Tough.

Growing up.  I was discriminated against because I was poor.  When I was 19 and in Germany in the Army, I was jumped by 8 Black guys for the sole reason of the color of my skin. I’ve not spent my life being resentful for this treatment.  I don’t spend my days and nights talking about “the Man” and his desire to “get me” and “hold me down.”  I go out and live and try to improve my lot in life.  In spite of the Challenges and sometimes because of the Challenges that have come my way.

Obama will become the 44th President of the United State of America on January 20th, 2009.  This would not have been possible without the vote of White Americans.  This seems to be a fact that many Black Americans overlook.  The election of Barack Obama is a victory for all Americans.  Not Black Americans or racially mixed Americans.  All Americans.  It plainly illustrates that much of White America has moved past the old racist notions that held us back as a Nation.

My question is this:

HAVE BLACK AMERICANS MOVED PAST RACISM?

Are they willing to do so? Will they?  Or will we still have to hear about “Whitey” or “those damn Crackers” or the “evil White man.” Will White America get credit in the Black Community for looking past color in this election?

This is one of the roles that Michelle Obama must take on as First Lady.  The role of healer of a nation.  Will she aid in healing the racial divide or will she exacerbate the divide?  This nation needs a healer.  I hope she steps up.  We have a chance in this nation to move past pettiness and prejudice.  We have been afforded a unique opportunity.  Let us hope that a leader will step forth and carry us forward to that day about which Doctor King and so many others have  dreamed for so long.  May we free ourselves of these chains which have held us down as a people for so long.  May people put down their hates and prejudices and look instead to the individual heart and character of a person.  This is a possibility.

I so tire of racism.  The conversation itself is wearying.

Let’s move past this America.  Let us finally free our national soul of this disease of the mind and spirit.

Michelle Obama.  Lead us on to the future.

Barack Obama wants to disarm America

Barack and Michelle Obama think that some mysterious band of nefarious evil doing “whiteys” are out there raising bars over their heads.  Yet, Barack thinks that he can deal with madmen like Ahmadinejad and the pedophile king of North Korea.  Barack is a babe in a forest full of wolves.  He’s not ready.  What more proof does one need than the video above.  Barack actually thinks that the Russians want to talk to the US about disarmament.  I don’t see it.  I suppose that he, too, can see into the soul of Putin and the Russians.

Barack wants to unilaterally disarm America. He’s of the same liberal ideology as Carter. He and the rest of the fools who believes that if we smile warmly and disarm ourselves, the rest of the world will love us.

A country with the size, resources and ambitions of America must have a solid defensive capability. What’s more. If we wish to maintain our democracy at home. We must promote democracy abroad. We must protect fledgling democracies. We must protect our interests abroad.

More than that. We must be willing to do these things. We can not shy away from the difficult decisions. Decisions of weight. Obama is not ready for them.

The man wants to shake hands with the devil and doesn’t know the price. 

This man can not be President.

“Che” Obama — Let the Bloody Revolution begin…

Barack Hussein Obama, Black Liberation Theology (Theologically Enshrined Racism) and Marxism

Basically, a large group of American people desire to elect a Marxist who is more than likely a closet racist to the Presidency .

The DNC may as well nominate an Ahmadinejad/Hugo Chavez ticket. While they’re at it, they can disband Congress and emplace Hamas in the House and Hezbollah in the Senate. Cement the destruction of the Constitution by placing the former Soviet Politburo in the Supreme Court. Special bonus: Kim Jung Il as Speaker of the House. Khamanei can be Attorney General in this ideal State of Affairs.

I wonder where Michelle and the Mullahs will build the first Gulag. Alaska, perhaps? Or will they just cede it back to Russia as a special Red Gift. I wonder if Obama will be as bloodthirsty as the men he admires. Che and Fidel the murdering twins of South America. Perhaps, Che Obama will be the American Stalin or our Mad Murdering Mao. Jeremiah Wright will re-emerge as Political Thought Commissar.

The DNC has finally gone off the deep end. Obama will make Jimmy Carter look like a mastermind.
