What really drives racism in this country? Blacks hating whites? Latinenos hating whites? Whites hating everyone? No! I think if each of us looks at
our daily lives and the interactions we have with others we will see that this is not the case.
Sure there are a good number of bigots out there from each race. But what makes them dislike or hate another race?
I will try to bring all of these ideas together in this one post. Comment on it if you would like. Negative or positive whatever your feelings
are on the subject. The fact that we can agree or disagree and still talk about things with out censorship is one of the best things about this
If we look closely at the race card we will find that very few in the middle and lower classes play it. Its usually someone in a political
setting. Once it is played however people seem to rally behind it.
We have several areas around my home town that are really run down. I guess you could call them ghettos. Government housing where people are of
low or no income. Why are there so many places like this and why are they mostly filled with minorities? If you ask some they will say that the system
failed them and in part they are correct. Others will say that racism has played a large role in their situation and they are also partly right. Then
some will say that they choose to live this way. Why work at MicE Ds when more can be made by not working anywhere?
If we as a nation will stop blaming each other, look around and pay attention it really is not hard to find the source. Who gains the most by
keeping a select people below poverty level? Who has the main part of the power to keep them there? The fact of the matter is that if you enable
someone long enough you make them dependent on you. By ‘dependent’ I mean that they look to you to fill their every need.
The only people that should have Government help of any kind are the Disabled and Senior citizens in this country. If you are healthy and able
to work then you should be doing so.
How many times have we heard that illegal immigrants are allowed in this country to fill the jobs that many Americans feel are beneath them? If
it comes to the well being of my family there is no job beneath me.
Illegal’s are allowed in to add to the minorities vote over time. While many of them or their children will become contributors, some will
find that if they choose they will not have to contribute. There are many people in this Great Nation that are able to work but simply do not have to.
They are actually paid not to work while many are penalized (taxes) for doing so. They are made to feel like they are incapable of getting out of
their current situation so why try?.
Is all of this because the color of their skin? No. Very little has to do with skin color.If you want or need to find racism in this country you
don’t need to look any farther than our Government. They make the policies and laws that help keep a lot of people below poverty level. But why
would they want this?
Well its simple. By holding people back they ensure the vote of these people to whom ever promises the most help for them. Of course they don’t
tell them or explain to them that this help will ensure that they and those they love will be no better off because of it.
It might be another government plan to make it easier for minorities to get housing or government assistance that is promised. These programs
actually hurt minorities. These are the programs that “Hold” minorities back. These programs don’t do anything to promote self worth or to bring
up ones self esteem. They give a since of failure, that if they try to get out of their situation they will just be pushed back down.
So why go after the minorities in this way? Well because they are a minority. You surly would not want a majority of people on these programs.
You would want them out there working and paying taxes.
For those few that break free from under the Governments thumb it is really no big deal because now they have entered the majority and can help
fund all of these programs that hold their family and friend back.
Affirmative Action is one of these programs that help ensure that the majority will stay the majority and the minority will stay the minority.
It makes it harder for whites to take advantage of these government programs. Even when the help is really needed. This also falls into the plans
wanted by some in government because it fuels the racism that some hold towards minorities.
I have told this story before but I will go over it once more to try and help prove my point. Several years ago I had an accident and
was out of work for about 3 months. My wife was a stay at home mom of three at the time and without me working things looked grim. I swallowed my
pride and said that we should try to get government assistance until I could get back to work. She agreed, so off to the local DSS office we went. My
wife had to sit there for 2.5 hours filling out a few papers and answering all kinds of questions that were aimed at deterring her from getting help.
Minorities on the other hand who were seeking the same help were in and out the door in 30 min. They also called me, almost daily, to see if I was
back to work and if not when I was going back.
A lot of people who can not see the big picture take this out on the minorities who receive government assistance when actually it is the
government who is at fault. To be fair though these programs do help a very few but it holds many, many more back. I praise the few that break the
bonds holding them back like our Pres. Obama, but I think this was due more to their families encouraging them, and their own self worth, more than
the programs. That’s just my opinion though.
Why would people think that ‘Whites” are holding minorities back? It does not profit anyone and makes no since. If minorities were not held
back that would mean less taxes and more money in everyone’s pocket.
The Civil War and Slavery are also more fuel to the fire. In reality a lot of facts about those times have been distorted. Slavery was wrong but
what most people don’t know is that it was not strictly Whites against Blacks, though that is what it has been made into.
This is just one of many articles on the subject, though it is strictly about S.C., it still has a lot of information you will not find in your
childs History books or anywhere in the main stream.
Racism does have its effects in this country but most are intended effects. Far left liberals have their own stake in the minorities being held
As I said before, as long as minorities are held down, those they look up to for help have power. They will help just enough to make them think
they are with them in their fight but what they won’t tell them is that they are fighting a ghost. A ghost set up to leave some minority folks below
poverty level which insure tax dollars coming to the Fed. Government. Little of which makes it to those who NEED it. It keeps those down, believing
they can’t do any better. It insures most minority groups will vote for those who they think will help them the most. But these people are not
helping. They are truly hurting all of us.
As long as these people are being elected and given positions of power we stand a greater chance of these few changing this Great Nation for
If we look into what these few believe then we will see that their view of the future America is something many of us do not recognize. It scares
me what lengths I have read that they are willing to go to in order to achieve their vision.
Inflation of the dollar to the point that it is worthless. Then when we are in a ‘Greater’ depression they step in and rebuild this Great
Country into a Socialist government run country.
If you know any far left liberals ask them to describe what they think the perfect country would be like. I am sure, if you are a conservative,
you will agree with little they have to say. But the fact is that these people really do believe what they think. They believe in their vision as much
as we believe in the Constitution, lower taxes, lower Federal spending and working hard for what you have and protecting it.
I am not a person who gives credit to all of the “conspiracy theories” floating around but I can look at what has been happening for the last
three decades and at what seems to be coming to a head now.
Federal spending is out of control. We borrow money that we can not pay back and we print money that we do not have the recourses to back. It is
just a matter of time before the dollar is worth little to nothing.
Some might tell you that we are coming out of the recession but if you know anything about economics you know this is not true. Or maybe it
is……….. Are we are coming out of the recession and diving head first into a depression?
I have covered a lot and I am sure that many will not agree with my thoughts. All I ask is that you do your own research. I could of filled this
post with links but where would that have led? We as Americans have the duty to research what is going on in this country. We don’t need to
watch or read one source of news for all of the answers.
I PRAY that I am wrong. I still have hope though, I watch and do see changes. I just worry that these few changes are meant to pacify. THANK
