Brilliant Careers In Racism

That is essentially what one could use to define the existences of the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, to name two unfine, downstanding examples of parasites whose careers require feeding by any incident they can translate into a racist event for their personal and professional exploitation.

The latest opportunity for these opportunists has been, of course, the Trayvon Martin affair, which has been well covered in article, links and comments by Always on Watch.

Well, even before the police had finished investigating, before anyone had the facts of the matter in hand, the Racism Professionals together with the liberal media and the President of the United States (you know, Barack Hussein) had already drawn and quartered the shooter, effectively ruining his life for all time.

While I have a number of black friends and acquaintances for whom I have nothing but respect, it forever irks me that collectively, blacks can be so politically naive as to believe that the Democrats are “championing their cause” when those rascals over on the left are repeatedly holding them back, blaming nonexistent Republican (white) racism for their every problem (the GOPers are the party that passed the Civil Rights Act while the KKK is exclusively staffed by Democrats, go figure). It is in the Democrats’ best interests to keep blacks both in the dark and as poor as possible, solely because losing the black vote would be a disaster to them.

That said, I have here a column by Thomas Sowell in which he defends, using pure reality based logic, the otherwise useless Geraldo Rivera’s famous (infamous in some quarters) remark about Martin wearing a hoodie.

It is not often that I agree with Geraldo Rivera, but recently he said something very practical and potentially life-saving, when he urged black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.

There is no point in dressing like a hoodlum when you are not a hoodlum, even though that has become a fashion for some minority youths, including the teenager who was shot and killed in a confrontation in Florida. I don’t know the whole story of that tragedy, any more than those who are making loud noises in the media do, but that is something that we have trials for.

People have a right to dress any way they want to, but exercising that right is something that requires common sense, and common sense is something that parents should have, even if their children don’t always have it.

Many years ago, when I was a student at Harvard, there was a warning to all the students to avoid a nearby tough Irish neighborhood, where Harvard students had been attacked. It so happened that there was a black neighborhood on the other side of the Irish neighborhood that I had to pass through when I went to get my hair cut.

I never went through that Irish neighborhood dressed in the style of most Harvard students back then. I walked through that Irish neighborhood dressed like a black working man would be dressed — and I never had the slightest trouble the whole three years that I was at Harvard.

While I had a right to walk through that tough neighborhood dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit, if I wanted to — and if I could have afforded one, which I couldn’t — it made no sense for me to court needless dangers.

Makes sense to me…

Later in the column:

Let the specific facts come out in the Florida case. That is why we have courts.

Have we forgotten the Jim Crow era, with courts making decisions based on the race of the defendants, rather than the facts of the case? That is part of the past that we need to leave in the past, not resurrect it under new racial management.

Who is really showing concern for the well-being of minority youngsters, Geraldo Rivera who is trying to save some lives, or Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and others who are hyping this tragic episode for their own benefit?

Race hustlers who hype paranoia and belligerence are doing no favor to minority youngsters. There is no way to know how many of these youngsters’ confrontations with the police or others in authority have been needlessly aggravated by the steady drumbeat of racial hype they have been bombarded with by race hustlers.

The entire column.

And also weighing in Ann Coulter is, as usual, spot on.

Even after the Duke lacrosse case, Texaco executives allegedly using the N-word in private meetings — which turned out to be “St. Nicholas” — the Tawana Brawley case, not to mention virtual hailstorms of racist graffiti and nooses materializing on college campuses, all of which invariably end up having been put there by the alleged victims, the Non-Fox Media (NFM) didn’t even pause before conjuring a racist plot in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida last month.

Like Captain Ahab searching for the Great White Whale, the NFM is constantly on the hunt for proof of America as “Mississippi Burning.”

Over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the month after Martin was killed, gangs in Chicago shot 10 people dead, including a 6-year-old girl, Aliyah Shell, who was sitting with her mother on their front porch.

One imagines MSNBC hosts heaving a sign of relief that little Aliyah was not shot by a white man, and was thus spared the horror of being a victim of racism.


Ann Coulter’s full column.

All this may give you an inkling of why we rely on the criminal justice system to determine guilt in criminal cases and not the fervid imaginations of the race-obsessed media.

You’ve got to wonder how much longer it’s going to be before so many Americans just plain stop being stupid and cease giving any kind of credibility to the Sharptons, Jacksons and the racism fixated elements of the media.

    The brouhaha in certain quarters over this has made me wonder - in pure racism of course - whether, if the person shot had been Mr. Zimmerman, would there have been any fuss in the Press at all? Probably not, after all he’s a “white” man and therefore a legitimate target for a disaffected “black” minority member …

    But I suspect the term “minority” may also be inappropriate these days, I suspect the demographics of certain parts of the US may have changed dramatically in the last 20 or so years.

    My next post shows that observation to be right on target, wherein two white British students here in the U.S. were murdered by a young black man.

    Our demographics over here have definitely changed. Speaking for a New York resident, whenever I’m in Manhattan I feel like I’m part of the majority (I grew up in Cuba) — Spanish seems to be nearly as widely spoken here as English; Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Dominicans and various South American immigrants, with Chinese, Arabs and Indians (the kind from India as opposed to Native Americans) right behind.

    This seems more like the dam broke than it does a melting pot.
