So … if you’re White and are the proud parent of a Black Lives Matter placard or bumper sticker, or any derivative thereof, there’s a more appropriate decal missing from your car’s rear window — “Punked By My Black Brothers.”
If America is a racist country, can someone tell me why is it that the majority of African immigrants become successful, in short order?
Over the years, being curious about how Africans regard Black Americans, I have spent lots of time having that conversation with a number of Africans, and they have all disclosed the same, surprising response.
On balance, African immigrants have disdain and contempt for American Blacks and vehemently discouraged any inferred likeness … nor any empathy or sympathy for American Blacks. They believe that American Blacks are a “mongrel” breed that is lazy and in constant pursuit of entitlements that are not theirs to have. And chief among their objections has been the appropriated “African-American” moniker.
Does anyone find it odd that few … very few Blacks of my generation (66) and older have little-to-nothing to say of racism, leaving the majority of race-centric grievances to come from those too young to have experienced the grief about which they habitually complain?
These young and malevolent malcontents know nothing … absolutely nothing … of racism. Their plight simply is what I call, “victimhood entitlement.” They have been coddled for so long that they have evolved … or devolved … to demand a “right to be victims,” even though their chief victimizers stare back at them from their bathroom mirrors.
Yes, I agree. There is, in fact, something “systemic” about America, nowadays, but it has zilch to do with racism. Instead, it is Black America’s enslavement by denying themselves the binding of children to fathers and establishing the much warranted social parity and foundation upon which a meaningfully successful life can be built.
And sitting at their elbow, as Grand Pretorians, are guilt-ridden, Liberal White America, sanctioning, securing, and also demanding the notion of unrelenting victimhood for these grieving malcontents. Liberal White America have lain themselves prostrated in sacrificial homage to a cause about which they know no more than it obliges them with emotional release.
Instead of realizing the ruse on which they have been taken, Liberal White America has willingly come to its knees, puckered up, and are now fattened from the long suckling of the guilt teat. Through their participation in marches and riots, they have canonized their self-loathing and bestowed exotic royalty upon Blacks by the over-use of “African-American” as a new distinction and recognition of Authentic Blackness — a jewel of denial.
And the inherent danger in this behavior should not be ignored, for victimhood entrenchment is self-selective and, worse, self-fulfilling, meaning “…so long as ye both shall live.”
What Liberal White America is missing is that there is no real solidarity among Blacks … none, at all, as evidenced by the horrific incidents of Black-on-Black violence and murders. This guise of “togetherness” is a ruse, a notorious Snipe Hunt designed to “punk” Whites and gain their participation in their everpresent threat of mob violence, which, to date, has worked without any signs of abatement.
As those of us keen on the absence of raw racism look across the landscape to observe Whites joining in the incendiary protests, teetering on violence, we know that such White participation amounts to one of the most egregious displays of racism possible, which simply says that, without the involvement of Whites, the Black throngs simply are too marginalized, too racially insignificant to matter and, so, are undeserving of any serious consideration. Therefore, it is up to them, the Whites, to weigh in and bring warranted might to the fight.
Isn’t it time for Liberal White America … and their woke comrades … to take a different sort of knee? Let alone the Black rioters, the Black majority predictably ignorantly vote against their own interest, when they queue up behind Democrats who have never gained them anything. As such, they bear striking resemblance to what Russian demigod, Vladimir Lenin, referred to as “the Useful Idiots.”
If these Blacks are Useful Idiots, who and what does that make Liberal Whites who, by those idiots, are punked? Huh?!!
Perhaps, this creates the need for those Liberal Whites to take a break and slip into something comfortable … like a coma?
