Racist And Ridiculous

Late last month, an email went out from an administrative assistant working for a Republican elected official  in the legislature here in the state that was titled “Historical Keepsake Photo.”

The photo was this:


This was sent to me recently by another legislative staffer who was offended by it, as I am.

I talked to my local rep, Mark Maddox about it, and described the picture to him at a recent fund raising event. I think he was as appalled as I was. I was going to post it last week but there was a death in my family and I had to think about it.

Because it made me mad.

But, you know, people need to know that this stuff is going on. I would be just as angry if a democratic staffer had sent it.

Dammit, Tennessee, haven’t we moved past this kind of crap. I’m serious.

Leaders and their staffs need to be just that. LEADERS! And they have done a pretty suspect job this year if you ask me.

We live in a world of uncertainty and a lot of hurt. In Tennessee, it’s more important to pass dog bills than the budget. But, I guess we can find the time to send out junk, racist emails. Jeez.

Racist imagery matters.

I decided to release it because we need to think about our actions. How does this kind of behavior effect our children? It’s just ridiculous and it’s wrong.

I expect better of anyone elected to position that my tax dollars pay. I guess I give folks too much credit.

Yes I am on a soapbox and I’m not getting off of the damned thing.

Update: The email I received says the staffer is Sherri Goforth, who works for Diane Black.


Christian Grantham talks to Ms. Goforth, who admits she sent the email.

When I asked her if she understood the controversial nature of the photo, Goforth would only say she felt very bad about accidentally sending it to the wrong list. When I gave her a second chance to address the controversial nature of the email, she again repeated that she only felt bad about sending it to the wrong list of people.

I sent it to the wrong list of people? Huh.


People are talking.

    Whoopi Goldberg doesn’t think an apology is enough from Sen. Black after what happened last week at the Holocaust Museum. Here’s her rant on newsy.com with a video clip from The View. http://www.newsy.com/videos/e_hatred

    Ahhh Thor,

    First, I’d like to say its funny how the American Government seemed to be just fine and running as a well oiled machine in your eyes until Obama was elected; now suddenly the system is flawed, useless, crazy and headed for socialism.”

    You start off with a straw man logical fallacy. You don’t know me, if you did, you would know I have been screaming about the loss of our liberties since I took civics in high school during the Reagan Administration. And even if I hadn’t been, everyone has the final straw, or the moment they finally wake up from the dream. This where were you when canard gets us nowhere.

    “Second, though it is a small point, there is NO SUCH THING as the Black Prison Guards Union.”

    If there isn’t one I am shocked. Since there are Black Student Unions, Congressional Black Caucasus and the NAACP, with no similar organizations for Whites.

    “Thor, I would REALLY like to know how it is that the Caucasian” race is going extinct? Seriously?! I see PLENTY of White people every day of all social and economic stations and all political associations thriving and living just fine.”

    In the year 1700 how many Native American plains tribes people would listen to a warning about the dangers of the White men who were living in the direction of the rising sun? There were plenty of them, everywhere, doing just fine. And they had never even seen a White man. But were they actually safe, or did they just think they were safe? By the year 1900 they would certainly know the danger was real, and it was too late to do anything about it.

    In 1950, 1 in 3 people on the planet were White, today the number is closer to 1 in 10 and falling fast. We use birth control and have abortions and pay confiscatory taxes which prohibit large families, and they don’t.

    You don’t know these facts because they have been hidden from all of us. And because your black, subconsciously you would not notice or care about seeing fewer Whites.

    If the nightly controlled news WANTED White Americans to know they were doomed, they would run the story every single night. But they don’t, so they don’t.

    “You may also want to remember that White people live in other countries around the world, not just here in the good US of A. I hardly think you’re going to be extinct any time soon. What is with the White male aggression? Are you upset because this country is not all white “anymore”? I hate to tell you, but this county was never all white.”

    Why so aggressive? One of my ancestors probably killed an invading Mongol before fleeing into the hills, and the trait has been passed down to me. Aggression is the proper response to discovering an active plan by your own government to exterminate your kind off the planet. This is an issue of control and survival. Without control, you can’t guarantee survival, this is why the Jewish people rightly wanted their own nation again.

    “YOUR ancestors decided to bring MY ancestors here to do all the labor most of your ancestors were unwilling to do. Then, as the country wanted to expand westward they encouraged Chinese immigration to help pan for gold and build the railroads. Also, the young United States of America took parts of Mexico and added that land to its vast expansion of the country. So theoretically, it’s your ancestors you should be angry with for bringing, encouraging and taking the land of other cultures, which lead to their descendants living here today”

    Who says I am not angry with those idiots who sold out everyone for the sake of their short-term gain? Those pricks were in complete control politically then, and not thinking past next Sunday. And don’t think Blacks didn’t play a role in the slave trade. Your people were captured in tribal warfare, first made slaves to a rival chieftain, then sold to the White, probably Jewish merchants, in exchange for alcohol, dyed fabrics, glass beads, steel instruments or firearms. And Black life had MORE VALUE then. You didn’t see any abortions taking place on the plantation when a slave was worth $40,000 in modern terms. “White supremacists” are the enemy? Who legalized abortion and then placed centers right in Black neighborhoods? Not the KKK. At least slavers made their profits off the lives of Blacks. The progressives, the same people pushing multiculturalism, make their profits off the deaths of Blacks.

    “You talk about the media power and spin, how they perpetuate untruths, and pointed to that as the reason KWFV imagines you as a backwoods red necked racist, and then talk about the celebration of uneducated Blacks, excuse me, “Negros”. Did it ever occur to you, that perhaps, the media has shaped that image (uneducated Blacks) too? So you are a victim of your own so called media conspiracy.”

    You missed my point. When the Jewish controlled media wanted Blacks to “be” uneducated for sympathetic purposes, they crafted that image in the American mind. But now that their agenda calls for uneducated White hillbillies to be scorned, they take the American populace in that mental direction. Again, this is controlled hypocrisy, and I will not tolerate it. No White person should tolerate it.

    “You are probably a well dressed, educated working White male. One that most people around you would not expect to hold such extreme, dangerous, racist ideas.”

    These views WERE NOT considered extreme, dangerous, or “racist” until about 50 years. The word “racist” was invented in the first part of the 20th century by Jewish radical Marxists to further the destruction of Christendom. The rest of the world has succumbed to the brainwashing, not I. I fell for it a little bit, until I woke up one looked around and realized the country was gone. Television held us under a trance for too long, just as it was designed to do. Want to know when I had my epiphany? It was February 2007, Black history month, and I was watching a civil rights documentary on PBS. They interviewed this young White girl about why she was marching, and she said because her people were ALWAYS, quote ALWAYS going to be the majority, and the Negro, her words, were always going to be the minority, and she just thought it was time they had “equal rights”.

    Then it hit me. Oh my God, these idiot liberals just didn’t realize that not only can things change, they can change fast when you lose control over your government. Little did that brainwashed, but well-meaning girl realize, that in 1965, the Immigration Reform Act would begin to DISCRIMINATE against the skilled European worker favored throughout our nation’s history, in favor of third-world, unskilled labor. And in larger numbers. By the time America woke up to this reality 30 years later, 30 million non-White were inside the gates both illegally and legally. Their Trojan horse worked perfectly. Game over White America. You did nothing and now you are locked forever in a battle for power in a democracy where numbers are EVERYTHING.

    White people were stabbed in the back. They got us to accept the already present minorities, then once that mindset of acceptance was instilled they then began to import and more and more non-Whites. And if you express any concern whatsoever, you are labeled a “racist” and marginalized in this totalitarian society. And since no one wants to be ridiculed or marginalized, or have their income potential diminished, White people just go along with their destruction. History, how ever much of it we have left, will laugh at how easy the White race went down.

    And it was well-dressed, educated people who looked White which destroyed my nation. So I will grant you, the traitor from within is the most dangerous enemy, as Cicero said over 2,000 years ago.

    “That’s the worst kind of racist, just like the staffer that sent this e-mail. Decent people never see your type coming. As a CHRISTIAN, I’ll pray for you. See, that’s what Christians do. They want to help those less fortunate and educate the ignorant. Nothing you have espoused here on this site echoes Christ’s love.”

    No, the worst kind of racist would be the kind now attacking my race, trying to wipe us off the planet. I/we just want our homelands so we can guarantee that doesn’t happen. You people should really wake up and think about letting us have want we want peacefully. Do you really think we will go quietly into that goodnight? And I see nothing un-Christ-like about avoiding problems in the first place by separating different factions instead of forcing factions into the same political power structure. Maybe you can help me, but I can’t locate the passages where Jesus tells people to go out of their way to create situations of animosity and conflict, only so they Christian will lose the battle when his opponent accuses him of being un-Christ-like. I seem to remember I’m already forgiven, so it really doesn’t matter what I do, especially since I woke up and learned the truth. Satan is behind this whole plan by the way.

    What future can my children possibly have in this country? I saw the brainwashing take hold as Whites, I don’t blame the Blacks, but as Whites fell all over themselves, thinking they were “making history”, and proving what “good people” they were by voting for the Obama. Next we will have to have a White woman president, then an Hispanic, then an Asian, then a non-White female. And NONE of them will be strict Constitutionalists, so there goes the rule of the law. And all of this has been done by stealth and by design, and while the idiot sheep slept.

    And like there will ever be a White president of South Africa again, ha!

    “The saddest part of this whole thing, Thor,”

    Straight out of the liberal play book, page 41 I think, calling the opponent “sad”.

    “is that you believe that you and those like you are some kind of underground patriots who are going to save the country from itself, that you will be America’s heroes.”

    Wasn’t I clear? Fuck America! This is about saving Western Civilization and the White race FROM evil America. I used to laugh at the Muslims and their “America is the Great Satan” chants, now I see they were right. When America was in the hands of Whites it used its power to genocide the Natives and enslave the Blacks. Now its power has fallen into the hands of the Luciferians Zionists, so next up is the destruction of the White race.

    “But really, you and those like you are really a cancer to this country. I think you miss the entire point of being an American. This country is great because we can go to sites like this and have a discussion or debate, even when we think the other person is a complete jerk,”

    For how much longer will you have your “free speech”? Free speech is a curse when you don’t control the microphone. Haven’t you heard about the changes coming to the internet? The “hate speech” laws we must have because one gay guy got murdered? One guy! And who gives a crap about free speech really? The power to truly protect yourself and your interests is what really matters. Don’t you think slaves said I don’t like being a slave, I want off this ship? Don’t you think the Native Americans said, hey stop wiping us out? Freedom of speech is an illusion, real power is force…the ability to use it to protect yourself.

    Multiculturalism is the real cancer. What do you think was the REAL message behind the Tower of Babel? God told you himself he doesn’t want us all living together under one government, and yet so-called Christians have ignored this lesson time and again.

    “Because I can have friends that are White, Latino/a, Middle Eastern, Republican, Jewish Muslim and I don’t have to be afraid to be seen with them because they’re different, and we can appreciate each others differences, but see and love the sameness, because the vote of the people means something, and when we come together we CAN affect change. I know this country is not perfect, but no place is except heaven, and we will probably never all hold hands and sing Kum Ba Ya around a bon fire, but when people like you thrive on, and promote hatred, and promote twisted logic and threaten violence, it makes me sick.”

    You are using slave logic, no offense, as the vast majority of White people use it to. That is the lie of diversity, the image which is sold so the true agenda isn’t revealed. I don’t give a crap about any other race, religion or culture, once mine has its safe homelands. Notice how diversity is being pushed EVERYWHERE White people are at once? This is because they know it is a destructive force, they can’t try it just in one place. When it fails there, the other White nations would never let it happen where they live.

    The opposite of the slave mentality, the ruler mentality knows the world is about control and power. Five slaves; the White, Black, Mexican, Native American and Pacific Islander can all be happy slaves and it doesn’t matter. But who gets to rule, which group gets to make decisions which affect the larger groups forever? Take an antebellum slave plantation for example. The slaves on it might have come from the Tutsi, Watusi and Hutu tribe. But on the plantation what the master says goes. All tribalism removed in favor of the forced new culture. When I point out this is EXACTLY what is being done to White people now, I am called a racist.

    This is what naive White Americans need to wake up and understand. Your race and your culture is being wiped out because you are a VERY, VERY LARGE SLAVE PLANTATION now. You only have to wake up and realize it.

    Further, Americans have been lied to about the “agenda”. America was sold clean-cut, educated, intelligent, peaceful Dr. Martin Luther King, and now their daughters have a poster of a gun-wielding, pimping, stoned Snoop Dog on their walls. That alone is an act of war! The homosexual agenda goes ahead full force in this hell of a country. We are being sold Ellen, 20 years from now your son will be raped by a pedophile at school. It is already happening. As a Christian you should realize when a nation is controlled by evil people, and so therefor it is capable of doing nothing but evil.

    Thor: Wow. Just…. wow.

    I sincerely hope someone in DHS or the FBI knows about you, because, Jesus….. you are one of those people who decide to suddenly go shoot people at the Holocaust Museum. Scary.

    The really sad thing (although there are many) about you is that you really have no idea what it means to be “Christ like”. Jesus would never spew the venom or hate that you foment. It’s not kind, and it’s not Christian.

    One more thing. Jesus probably had dark skin, so chew on that for a bit and see how it tastes.

    The other terribly ironic (and likely) thing about you is that, deep down, in your fantasies, you wonder what it would be like to be with a black woman. And that really scares you.

    We weren’t put on this planet to hate one another – we were put here to love one another. God isn’t white. Or black. Or yellow. God just IS. And the God that most of us pray to at night really doesn’t want us hurting each other, or tearing each other down. At least that’s my 2 cents.

    Back to topic… that email was despicable, and the woman deserves to lose her job. Institutionalized racism and intolerance shouldn’t be condoned or accepted, and the fact that she gave a ‘non-apology’ apology really tells us what we need to know about her. It’s sad, but true.

    That’s all I’ve got.

    “Racist blogger Newscoma gins up outrage in simpleminded sheep and media by reporting on GOP staffer who emailed innocuous joke image of someone in the dark, presumably Obama!”

    Following the ‘all (blank) are (blank)’ pattern of a bigot, Newscoma justified his libel only with the willfully ignorant stereotype that all Republicans are racists. This simpleton premise precluded the keyboard cowboy from doing any substantive journalistic work, like bothering to find out why the staffer forwarded the image at all, or if the staffer herself even considered the image of two cartoon eyes on a black background to have ANY racial implications. Instead, using a habitual lack of logic that would land most upstanding citizens in a rubber room, Newscoma cited the complete omission of evidence to presume proof of his charges.

    Neglecting to find ANY example of this image (akin to Elmer Fudd bumbling about in the dark) being explained by its creator as racial in intent, Newscoma’s projected personal racism was deemed sufficient evidence for a smear job asserting the alleged racism was somehow so commonly known as to be self evident.

    Several commenters of dubios mental capacity echoed these peurile sentiments: “Wow, this is obviously racism, because Newscoma told me so! Stereotyping is bad! All Republicans must think exactly like this racist!”

    “Yeah! Anytime I see the color black, it HAS to be a comment about race, there can be no other excuse! Daylight savings is so racist! Always trying to get rid of an hour of blackness!”

    “OMG! I just realized my comment text is black! I must be a racist too! :(

    The insanity even devolved into circular logic:
    “Well, since Republicans are racist, any email she forwarded must have been racist. Since the email forward was racist, the Republican who sent it must be racist!”

    Names have been omitted to protect the differently abled.

    The spirit of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., after pointing out that “even a joke should be judged on its actual content rather than a knee-jerk reaction to color”, was trampled underfoot by the unhinged lynchmob and unable to make further comment. The irony was not lost on this reporter.

    So I’m assuming Mskmaker and Captain Obvious are “Christians”, as well? You guys and Thor could have quite the Klan rally together.

    Perhaps it’s an erroneous assumption, so please, edify me.

    If I am correct, though, and you purport to be a Christian…. wow.

    Very nice. Very Christ-like, and way to further hatred and disrespect others. I’m sure whatever children you may or may not be raising are going to grow up to be racist “Christians” as well. Nice indeed.

  15. mskmaker
    June 18, 2009 at 4:31 pm

    No, not a christian; however, I do believe that for the most part christians are nice people. Particularly I have a great deal of regard for the catholic as they contributed so much to the arts and sociology. Sure they all have their sketchy pasts; clearly those who participated in the crusades and warriors like moses, david, and joshua etc. had barbaric lifestyles. I dont understand it – dont care to understand it. It’s just the way it was and now in this day in age, we clearly have crossroads and it is what it is.

    I am not adverse to trying to evolve to a better level of understanding. But the rhetoric and language used by the left seems so vile and hateful and resentful, I usually am too disgusted to even be open minded enough to continue in conversation.

    Help with this if you can be civil: I would like for the black community to find whatever place they feel most comfortable. I think they dont operate well in a blended society. I dont mind lending moral support or guidance or ideas, I just feel resentful that I am forced to part with so many of my inherited and hard earned dollars to invest in their community under the guise of entitlement programs. I think that throwing cash at them is senseless and that by and large it doesnt help.

    I feel resentful when I see and hear about blacks with 6 kids on welfare. And the slang they use and the “my baby daddy” rhetoric. And the promotions that are afforded to them, when they aren’t the best one for the job. And the anger and hatred in their music and rap. And the attention getting stunts (acting like banchees at the theater, dressing like slum dogs, and all the breeding…….who has 6 kids?)

    So I tried to research their culture. I do believe in genetic predisposition for behavior. And my research leads me to believe that their interaction in a Euro-branch society is just setting them up for failure. I swear if I was black, this would be the last country in the civilized world that I would choose to stay in.

    For instance, I was wondering why they feel so comfortable and happy and in their element in gangs. Even though we all see the cryps and bloods, etc. , and all the bad behavior, if you look closely at their interaction, they seem to be very ok and relaxed in that kind of atmosphere? Why? Easy!! They come from a tribal mentalilty. There’s nothing wrong with communal living for them, they dont seem to be unhappy all jammed up piled up one on top the other in these type of environments. why? tribal ancestry.

    So why in the world would we set up a society that works well for us (capitalistism, individual achievment, hierarchy of power) and then tell them that this is the road to success. It is easily attainable for us ( as a whole) and impossible for them (as individuals). It’s mean to subject them to this kind of environment. It’s wrong and its a set up for failure and its just mean. Remember that mayor (help me out here) from Chicago, I think, Marion Barry – remember him getting popped for being all holed up in a seedy motel smoking crack with a gang of his people. This guy was so set up for failure being put in an impossible position to run a city – and then the big fat cat white ignorant Rush Limbaugh pig types sit back and puff their cigars and say “see, told ya!! And they’re all just like him”.

    And this whole Obama rama thing. Does anyone think that its a little more than odd that this guy was set up on stage and poised for the presidency, and the only person that the republicans could offer up as an alternative was that decrepit, old stereotypical John McCain. This republican party is loaded with cash. They can buy and sell anybody. The upper echelon owns everything. And does no one out there think that they pulled back support and withheld cash because they knew this country was on its way to an economic disaster and allow obama to be set up as the sacrificial lamb. Its horrible!! Its inevitable, you watch and see, this guy will fail so miserably and the only thing that will keep George H.W.
    Bush from going down in history as the worst president ever is that Obama is going to walk away with that trophy. It was a set up. Destined to fail. And then the big, white pigs will sit back in the smoky members only Yale library, and say, “told ya it would work”. And then they get on National television as say “you put up the best of the best of your people and he’s a big black failure.” AND IT WAS A POSITION PREDESTINED TO FAIL!! This guy is probably a very nice person and he’s going to get chewed up and spat out and its just business as usual for the real owners of this country. ( and in the midst of Obama’s horrible failure – the black community will be satisfied as long as the taxpapers spend a couple of million dollars to erect a monument in his honor)

    Hey honey, there’s the statue of the only black president we ever had. What a chump. He led us down the path to financial ruin. And there’s the washington monument, and the Jefferson memorial and the Lincoln monument, etc………….and the obama statue. Right there in the middle because it gets jammed down our throats that he deserves a monument only because he’s black?

    Help me out here. If you dont see that this guy will get sucked up into the most corrupt system of government and then they will expose him for corruption. He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesnt. All these big fat cat white Dick Cheney self serving idiot types are just sitting back listening to the music, and when it stops they are all going to grab a chair and Obama is going to be the one left standing.

    It was a no brainer – He was by far and away the easiest one to set up and the fall out will be that “Obama was just ill suited for the presidency.”

    Here’s another big set up for failure for the blacks. Has anyone ever seen the show “lock up”? They show thousands of these black guys locked up for crimes, crammed into these horrible prisons and locked away from “our People”. Gotta remove these criminals from society. Right?

    But they are only considered crimes in THIS SOCIETY!! For instance, alot of them are improsoned for stealing.
    We call that a crime.

    In African culture its not a crime, it happens every second of every hour of every day. No problem. One tribe doesnt have something and the other tribe does. So the “have nots” gang up together and steal all the shit from the “have” tribe and run away. And back and forth and back and forth and so on and so on……….this is just how it is on any given Tuesday. No harm no foul!!

    They dont get locked up behind bars. and why? Because its not a crime in that culture. Its just what they do.

    A young girl walks through the village, and a big black warrior type runs out from behind a tree and throws her the big hump, pump, pump, pump and runs off. It happens every second every hour every day year after year after hundreds and thousands of years. So what! It’s not a crime in that culture. They are just doing what comes naturally and instinctively.

    Here, it’s rape. So now they have to go to a stinky skanky prison for their entire life, for doing something that comes second nature for them. It’s just what they do. Pump, pump, pump, pump, pump and they’re gone! And they have absolutely no feeling for the offspring that the pump, pump might produce. There’s no cop to chase them down looking to put them in jail for not paying child support.

    This country has set these guys up for failure. Why not let them go live somewhere in Africa where what they do is not considered crimes and leave them alone.

    I think that white society is to blame for the way we have tried to force our ideals on these people. Again, can you see the set up for failure.

    It would be like someone holding a gun to my head and telling me to fly an airplane, and then saying i am to blame because i crashed the airplane.

    The big loser will undoubtedly be the ABC network. Any second now, the ceo of ABC is going to get a call from the NAACP calling the broadcasting of this show racially biased and a purposefully staged event aired during primetime to embarrass a black man and humiliate him on National television.. They will claim that the questions were posed in a racist way and that Alex Trebek did not afford as much time to the black man to ring in his answers as he afforded to the Yale and Cornell graduates.

    In order to hush it up ABC will settle out of court for around $3,000,000, the attorneys will take a third. NAACP will take their cut and the black guy will get a check for $6.

    And round and round we go!

    By the way, he lost. He lost alot more than just a silly game.

    What a shame!!!

    Set up for failure #6,999,099

    How about that Monica Conyers? Is she a criminal?
    Is she a bad person because she took something that didnt belong to her?

    If she was living comfortably in her own element, in and amongst her like kind, she would be guilty of absolutely nothing!!! It would be business as usual on any given Thursday. She is only guilty in this country.

    Once again, the big set up for failure. She had no business getting talked into taking a position that could one day cause her to make a choice between “to steal or not to steal”……………..

    and once again, the big fat cat white boys sit back watching and laughing at this poor woman squirming around as she’s asking everybody “what I do, what I do??”

    And they puff on their cigars, and point at the t.v. saying “every one of them people are thieves. If you shake hands with one of them you better check to be sure you got all your fingers back”

    She never, ever, ever should have been put in that position.

    For this, we are to blame!!

    Am I a Christian? What difference does that make? Would that somehow alter the factuality of what I’ve asserted one way or the other? What if I was Hitler reincarnated? If I said “the sky is blue” would that make me wrong? Name one “hateful” thing I’ve said in the midst of asking people to cease their bigotry and stop jumping to racist conclusions? Can’t name one, can you?

    Heck I don’t even exactly agree with msmaker, because I don’t acknowledge the existence of “black people” as if that’s some monolithic group that all walks and talks and thinks alike. No, I see distinct black persons, who each have their own individual merits and value. Anyone claiming to represent “the black comunity” as some whole is a charlatan who seeks to steal others voices to add to their own. same oes for any other “community.” But while I can disagree with others’ perceptions, I don’t need to assume that they’re all automatically racists. I can do so respectfully and with an interest towards hearing a different opinion.

    Thank you, Captain obvious, for offering info that may cause me to re think my position. Thanks for providing a forum that allows me to feel comfortable and finally say what I feel without the backlash of nasty ghetto rhetoric and hateful spew which doesnt help take me to the next level. You seem well informed, articulate, and evolved to a more comfortable place than I am with the black thing.
    Perhaps I, too, could confront how I feel and move forward.

    Where do I go from here?
    Just like last night’s Jeopardy game. I turn on the tv and in 2 seconds I am thinking ” well the outcome of this one isnt hard to predict, this black guy is going to get thrashed” And, of course, he did.

    I would have had an entirely different thought, had I have tuned into 2 white girls and a black guy competing against one another in a basketball free throw.

    Two nice black people move in next door and my husband meets them first and comes home and says “the black couple next door seem like really nice people”
    And I immediately think “Yeah, I am sure they are nice. But somehow, someway, and inevitable some time it’s going to get ugly – you just wait”

    Six months later the “nice black neighbor” is on the news saying:
    “These recent armed robberies here in Countryclubville have absolutele nothing to do with me and my wife and kids personally. I want to make that very clear. These crimes are all on my little cousin. My little cousin would never ever in a million years intentionally stab a couple in their own kitchen-NO WAY! What probly happened was that the couple walked all up on my little cousin and caatched him off gart and he just reacted. It was a reaction, you feel me?”

    All of my life I have just accepted the fact that blacks are here and all of us just have to deal with it.
    I think I am more resentful in the past 5 years or so because as a group they seem to require so much of my money to “invest in their futures.” Billions and billions given to these people to try and find the handful of superstars that might have something to bring to the deal.
    Like spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on trips and tools and manpower to go out and pan for gold. And then when you finally find a nugget, you go to cash it in and find out its worth $100.

    I feel like that an inordinate percentage of blacks have a propensity for crime, sooooooo many of them are irresponsible and a financial burden to society, soooo many of them live reckless lifestyles and then expect everyone else to pick up the tab for damage control.

    That’s what it feels like to me. Every single dollar spent on these people is just damage control.

    I understand that there is a small percentage of them that either excel or have the capabilities to excel.

    I am an avid gardener so these are terms to which I can relate. Thinking about investing in blacks is like trying to decide whether or not to spend the time and effort to grow a rose garden. Here’s what you need to consider:

    What is it going to take for me to have a beautiful, fabulous rose garden?

    #1 A lot of cash
    Statistics prove that only one of three shrubs will
    live long enough to produce flowers so I am going to have to buy alot of them. Roses are notorious for contracting disease and being prone to draw insects to the whole garden, so alot more money is going to be spent on fungicide and insecticide – Alot more! And not just for the roses themselves. Once you introduce roses to a garden, be prepared that the other plants and flowers are going to be subjected to the new diseases that roses draw into the entire garden!! Its a fact!
    #2 A great deal of time
    In order for roses to have Flower Power, they require a great deal of pruning. And its a nightmare. They have huge big hidden thorns that stab you and prick you. Pruning takes 10 times longer with Roses.
    #3 Continual attention
    Cant miss one dose of fertilizer. Even with the hybrids. The hybrids are only a little better plants than the original species. Cant miss one round of spraying for bugs. One miss, and the bugs eat through the petals and then you have to cut off the buds and start all over.

    These roses prick you, stick you, they are so expensive to begin with, they are nasty to deal with and are hard to keep alive. If you let them go, they get all tangled up in eachother and look like a big junked up mess from a distance. They cause all the other flowers to suffer from the attention diverted away from them and now you find all your time is being spent on one aspect of the garden.

    After all this inordinant amount of time, money, and effort, MAYBE (there’s no guarantees) you will get a few pretty flowers out of the whole junky mess. You get just a couple of fabulous, fragrant perfect flowers to cut and put in the foyer. Even the few good ones wither 5 days later and you toss them in the garbage and start all over.

    I prefer holly hocks. Little bit of time, little bit of effort, and wham bam fabulous. No bugs, no disease no trouble. Its a no brainer. Holly Hocks have a fabulous reputation. If you research them, they are referred to as “Proven Winners”!!!

    Can you help? Or am i just too far gone?

    Meanwhile, I will just continue with business as usual and double check to make sure all the doors are locked and that I didnt accidentally leave a window open and by no means am I going to drive through “that part of town”.

    I wonder how many of you liberals were offended when people were making fun of Condoleezza Rice? I’ll take you guys seriously when you get your own house in order.

    You better take them seriously now. They’re in charge, and are likely to be for a long time.

    Re:Black Men in America’s Jails and Prisons

    Too many young black men continue to waste their precious lives in a state of neo bondage. As a correctional educator for the past several years, I can tell you that the prisons and jails in this great country are overflowing with young African-Americans (You already know). All of my students are young black men – one exception. As a teacher, it saddens me to see the talent that is wasted on a daily basis.

    We all need to start doing more to address this escalating dilemma. The youth of this country don’t need to rot in jail, while we (Americans) ignore the problem. Something is causing this horrible trend to continue. You may ask yourself ”What can I do?”. There is no easy answer, but you need to do something. A few suggestions would be:

    organize sports functions (basketball leagues, football leagues, etc.)
    talk to kids at school
    write books
    contact government officials
    do volunteer work
    tutor kids
    take kids fishing, camping, etc.

    The point here is to start doing something. If we simply ignore the problem, where do you think we will be in 10 years pertaining to this issue?

    For my part, I have written a book aimed at helping young black men who are already incarcerated.

    The book is called:
    Black Choices, A young black man’s guide to prison survival

    ISBN: 1-60813-727-9, 83 pages, 6 x 9,
    The book can be ordered through
    PublishAmerica.com or by calling 301/695-1707
    This book can make a real difference to the young man who is incarcerated. It can help him to negotiate prison life more successfully and also start planning for what life brings after prison is over. If you have a loved one or friend in jail, consider sending him this most important book. I believe it will help his life to start getting back on the road to a more successful future. Any help getting the word out about this book will be greatly appreciated. I truly care about my students and the overall plight of too many young black men in America’s correctional centers.

    Has anyone here ever heard of Tim Wise? His view of the creation of the “white race” is rather interesting…


    “…no such thing as the white race.”

    Wow this is awful..I am from Tennessee and I don’t want everyone to think that everyone from here are just all racist hicks..I am certainly not racist. Or judgmental about hardly anything for that matter. This picture hurts me alot..sheesh. Yeah I like that one comment up there..how can anyone expect their children to grow up to be good people when these adults are being like children? Why make jokes about someone elses skin color? The world should be over this already. So people have different skin colors, yesterdays news!..Yesterday by like..way too many years ago. And this is off subject but who really should have the rights to say a gay couple in love shouldn’t have the rights to get married in all of these filthy states? So what they have love for each other..its not like they want to murder..they want to marry the one they love. I feel like i’m starting to get on a roll about too much..I’ll hush up now [;

    No..I just got to say…So far Obama has been a good president..I know he has done a few things a little wrong making people worry about him being bad or something but I really have a good feeling about him..He seems like he wants to do something good for a change..it would be nice. I think he’ll do a good job and I feel completley AWFUL knowing that he has to hear all of these bad racist jokes about him and all..I don’t want racist kinds of things to go down again..Geeez.

    anyway, love and peace to all.

    Give it a try? Love and peace..United we stand..we’re all here together why not get along and make the best of it? We won’t be here forever..espically at the rate the evil in the world is going..heh.

    “Line was crossed b/c it wasn’t there.”

    I just finally heard about this yesterday. Somehow, this had escaped me since this was posted here a few weeks ago. I’ve been taking a summer course about race and its portrayals in the media and this would have made an excellent piece for discussion, mainly about where society is with “acceptance” and “tolerance,” issues about political correctness and nitpicking, etc.

    From a public image point of view, I’m fairly surprised she wasn’t fired (just ‘reprimanded’) given how this, you know, furthers the stereotype that everyone in the GOP sees heaven as a placed filled with rich, Republican white people. Is this really a stereotype anymore? Most of the Pubs who got this e-mail, I’ve read, said they didn’t even think it was racist, but pretty funny. Isolated accident? Not so much, from a 20-year employee of the Tenn. Legislature.

    These are some of the dumbest CRACKERS ive ever seen! We ALL have a BLACK PRESIDENT love it or not the worlds changing. Your not in control anymore, THE WHITE REIGN IS OVER!!!!!!!! ITS A BLACK THANG LOL!!! Dont worry white people we will save you once again. OBAMA 2012!!!!
