You punch him in the mouth, and I will kick him when he's down.

It is high time for PC bully beatdowns in this country.


I'm amazed you and others are putting this into print.

So, you disagree with someone's politics, and that gives you free rein to beat them?



Because every bully deserves an arse whooping and nobody cares about a bully. The professor is a bully.

There are two ways to stop a bully. Embarrass him in front of a crowd, or knock him on his ass. And 99% of the time, if you embarrass him in front of a crowd, having to knock him on his ass will be the result.


You really thought this was an important point, eh?

He's a bully because you don't agree with his politics??? What has he done to you or anyone else that can be called "bullying" ... surely you're not offended by his words, are you? How have you, personally, been intimidated by what the professor wrote in the NYT?

Should the PC police take care of this bully then, do you think? Or just a group of like-minded individuals? Should there be a particular color shirt these people all wear, so the "bullies" will know to look out for them, the, you know, sanctioned bullies?

What'cha think?

We tried getting away from a corrupt and bullyish government in 1860-61... All that proved is that the victors get to rewrite history the way they want to.


Another popular revisionist myth of slavery apologists and racism deniers.

Unfortunately, Louisiana didn't issue a Declaration of Causes as did some other states nor did they include an explanatory statement in their Ordinance of Secession but that doesn't mean there aren't any official statements about the reasons for secession from Louisiana officials. Like other states, Louisiana sent representatives to other Southern states' secession conventions.

From George Williamson, Commissioner from Louisiana, in an address to the Texas Secession Convention, City of Austin, Feb 11 1861. (transcript source):


History affords no example of a people who changed their government for more just or substantial reasons. Louisiana looks to the formation of a Southern confederacy to preserve the blessings of African slavery, and of the free institutions of the founders of the Federal Union, bequeathed to their posterity. As her neighbor and sister State, she desires the hearty co-operation of Texas in the formation of a Southern Confederacy.

Louisiana supplies to Texas a market for her surplus wheat, grain and stock; both States have large areas of fertile, uncultivated lands, peculiarly adapted to slave labor; and they are both so deeply interested in African slavery that it may be said to be absolutely necessary to their existence, and is the keystone to the arch of their prosperity.

The people of Louisiana would consider it a most fatal blow to African slavery, if Texas either did not secede or having seceded should not join her destinies to theirs in a Southern Confederacy.

As a separate republic, Louisiana remembers too well the whisperings of European diplomacy for the abolition of slavery in the times of annexation not to be apprehensive of bolder demonstrations from the same quarter and the North in this country. The people of the slaveholding States are bound together by the same necessity and determination to preserve African slavery. The isolation of any one of them from the others would make her a theatre for abolition emissaries from the North and from Europe. Her existence would be one of constant peril to herself and of imminent danger to other neighboring slave-holding communities.


My bold. If you'd like to argue this point, I have absolutely no problem linking to the Declaration of Causes from those states that did issue them where slavery is given as the reason. I can also produce quotes from Lee stating which clearly indicate that the Confederacy's greatest general believed that the Confederacy was formed to preserve AFRICAN SLAVERY, newspaper pieces from the period, other speeches, etc.

You're repeating a stupid myth for ignorant people who can't accept historical fact for whatever reason (fear of the dreaded and equally mythical white guilt?).

The problem with that is the Gov't are the real bullies. People need to strategize and come together in order to think of a solution to eliminate the enemy within. When that happens, everything will change. Until then, nothing. I truly hope it does though, and soon. People are smarter than that, they know what's going on however, they need a leader to pave the way, something to believe in. Then revolution will begin and freedom will reign.

Today it is taught it was about slavery.

When in fact it was about states rights VS. the FED GOV.

Good spin tactics existed even back then.


Complete and utter nonsense. It was only about states rights in as far as the Southern States wanted to preserve and expand slavery.

And this is indisputably proved through the official, clear and articulate declarations of those states explaining why they were seceding from the union.

No offense but that is silly propaganda espoused by those looking to cast slave owners as victims.

You can engage in some objective research if you choose..


Why because you dont like it?

Before that, the states had the rights to tell the FED GOV to stuff it.

After they all must bow down to the FED GOV on any issue it makes a declaration on.

Slavery was just the issue that brought it to a head.

It could have been any other issue.

The fact is, some wanted a centralized power in total control of the country, instead of many states controlling themselves with minimalist federal control.

Slavery was just a great propaganda piece to use to force this issue.

Because nobody in their right minds would want slavery to continue, or a centralized power with full authority.

But as most things, it wasnt divided into 2 seperate issues.

It was made into 1 issue.

Slavery ended, and began on the same day.

Now blacks arent slaves, but the states are in fact slaves to the FED GOV.

Slavery would have ended eventually no matter what, but they only had the one chance to install federal dictatorship over the states.

So instead of state level legislation finally ending slavery, they ended it, and established absolute authority for the FED GOV over the states at the same time.

I thought that was obvious.

Seeing how all the confederate states didnt argue the merits of slavery, but the rights of the states to rule themselves.

That is why they left.

Robert E Lee, one of the greatest battlefield commanders in history was asked by Lincoln to lead the FED ARMY, he declined, instead choosing to represent his home state Virginia.

This is a historical fact.

He didnt do it because he wanted slaves, he did it because he didnt want Virginia ruled by washington.

I just finished reading the entire article in the OP link. In saying that, I don't believe YOU, the OP, actually did, or if you did, then you did not comprehend it within its proper context.



What he seems to be saying is that white people are lesser than all other humans because we carry a defect known as "racism".


That is NOT what he is saying at all...



He of course (in his own mind) has no such defects, because as a black man he is superior.


How did you come to that conclusion...? Is that a fact or opinion? I strongly suggest based on your thoughts expressed in the OP that you read the article in its entirety and then contemplate the information using critical thought.



This article is mind numbing in it's utter lack of self awareness and hypocrisy.


So is your OP (thoughts concerning the article). Life sure is ironic. You seem to be guilty of the same mindset. Jumped the gun...



Forget the fact hes broadly generalizing and shaming an entire group of people.



From the link:


Take another deep breath. I know that there are those who will write to me in the comment section with boiling anger, sarcasm, disbelief, denial. There are those who will say, “Yancy is just an angry black man.” There are others who will say, “Why isn’t Yancy telling black people to be honest about the violence in their own black neighborhoods?” Or, “How can Yancy say that all white people are racists?” If you are saying these things, then you’ve already failed to listen. I come with a gift. You’re already rejecting the gift that I have to offer. This letter is about you. Don’t change the conversation. I assure you that so many black people suffering from poverty and joblessness, which is linked to high levels of crime, are painfully aware of the existential toll that they have had to face because they are black and, as Baldwin adds, “for no other reason.”

Some of your white brothers and sisters have made this leap. The legal scholar Stephanie M. Wildman, has written, “I simply believe that no matter how hard I work at not being racist, I still am. Because part of racism is systemic, I benefit from the privilege that I am struggling to see.” And the journalism professor Robert Jensen: “I like to think I have changed, even though I routinely trip over the lingering effects of that internalized racism and the institutional racism around me. Every time I walk into a store at the same time as a black man and the security guard follows him and leaves me alone to shop, I am benefiting from white privilege.”


Trevor Noah sums the above up by sharing this short funny story. Listen all the way to the end...

I thought the academic term for what he's selling was critical race theory or some rot like that.

The natural conclusion of what he was saying is that the only way we have any hope of getting rid of racism is to completely demolish society and remake it from the ground up. I'm not even going to make any wild guesses about how he thinks that process ought to begin since his idea of a conversation about race is a lecture from his end of the stick.

Yes, we get it. Because of society, being born white is the ultimate sin because no matter how unracist WE might be, SOCIETY is still racist, so WE are still racist no matter what.

It is far from enlightened thought to assume that humans should be civilized at all times.

As evidenced by the fact it is absurd based on all data from all known species on this entire planet in its known history.

Civility is the illusion, it doesnt exist, nor should it in its absolute form.

Humans are violent, just like all other life on this planet.

To deny this obvious fact is ridiculous.


It's absurd to expect the opposite. One only has to go outside his front door to see this. Try it, go outside and count the acts of civility on one hand, and the acts of violence on the other, then compare them.


But you are demanding 100% civility.

Denying that is not only never going to happen, but complete hogwash to say it can or even should.

There should be zero concern by anyone not breaking the law. So it's my fault I don't have to find concern since I don't break the law?

Thanks for your permission, as well, in my concern for race relations in other countries. Reminds me of the time Oprah got offended and called the Swedish woman racist for making Oprah look at the $45,000.00 bracelet instead of the $50,000.00 that was locked away. Said the lady only did it because Oprah was black. You could have stuck a turd in her mouth and not gotten that level of confusion and WTF when she was called racist. Probably had to look it up and see what it meant to make sure Oprah wasn't using the term wrong.

/sigh

This has been part of our Constitution from day 1:



This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

Article VI, Clause 2


The Federal Government created by the Constitution is and has been the Supreme Law of the Land.

The States have the powers not assigned to the Federal Government, but their powers are still subject to it.

No one has said that here.

That's just the standard wild reactionary hyperbole.

Did you read Dr. Yancy's article/letter?

It seems as though the professor's philosophy [from which he hopes to sell many books] parallels the concept of Original Sin, but with only non-blacks being guilty.

That's their mentality... There are some black people out there that will call you a racist just for telling them no or not smiling and saying hi when you cross paths with them. I only use blacks because there aren't many Hispanics down here, and most of the blacks here seem to walk around with a chip on their shoulder like you owe them something. Like you said, it's that victim mentality they've got ingrained in their head. In High School (mid to late 90's), most of my friends were black and nobody seemed to have animosity like they do now. This current racial divide has caused more damage among Americans than the craptastic economy.


I agree.

I think most of it is because of obama honestly.

He didnt cause the issue, it was already there festering.

He is the guy that keeps poking it though, using it for political capital.

He isnt the instigator though.

He is just the guy rubbing salt in the wounds.


Agreed... That butthole knows exactly what he's doing.

So this guy uses wide generalizations and people get upset, and rightfully so.

But then in true mental gymnastics turn around and then generalize all higher education and go on ranting about PC this and liberals that...
As if this one guys speaks for all of it...
Very ironic if you ask me, people pretty much doing exactly what this guy did.

Oh and lets not forget advocating violence on the guy for thinking differently.


Meh... More like putting a bully in his place.
