...and still it continues.
I really, really, REALLY wish that people would wake up and see that the media is painting us all into a corner. You know, the one thing all
articles like this have in common is they keep that racial dividing line brightly lit in everyone's mind. It ensures that people will be receptive
to the headline of "Racism still alive in America, Obama loses election!" and "Polls show racism still a part of the US following Barack defeat by
I DO NOT want Obama as president, but it has nothing to do with his race. It's the policies, stupid! It's the fact that I do not trust him. It's
the fact that I believe there are too many issues swirling around about his nation of birth, his religious beliefs, and he's essentially insulted me
and my family with his "holding onto God & guns" bullcrap.
But then we have the media giving asshats like Shabazz a soapbox from which to build the foundation of the belief that "anybody who doesn't vote for
Obama is obviously a racist SOB."
I will also say this (which I'm sure somebody will take offense to, if you're that somebody, too bad learn to deal with it because it's true.)
There will never be an actual "race war" in the United States. If Shabazz and his ilk somehow managed to organize a movement to create one, it
would colapse fairly quickly. I see a handfull of reasons for this.
1. There are many, many honest, hard working black people in this country who are sick of miscreants like Shabazz acting like animals in public and/or
flapping their gums incessantly about "whitey." I think the people calling for this type of war would be surprised at how strong the rebuke would
be from those black Americans.
2. The bad seeds in the urban black community have demonstrated time and time again that they can't get along with each other in a neighborhood
setting... yet Shabazz believes they'd be able to stay organized and avoid infighting in a national war movement? PLEASE. These street gangs kill
each other over crap like whether their 'hood' is North or South of a particular intersection, what color of bandana they have on their head, and
which hand sign they throw up when greeted on the street.
3. Many of the people they would be fighting against are trained fighters, not local gang bangers. You look at MS13, the Aryan Brotherhood, or the
Mexican Mafia. Many of these guys are either paramillitary from Mexico & South America or have served in the US military. Not an even matchup in any
sense of the word.
So yeah, while it bugs me to no end that the media gives this idiot a voice, his words do not concern me.
