Very little of what I hear these days, especially when it comes from those on the left, surprises me all that much. But I must admit every once and a while I do come across something that causes me to take a step back and wonder just how it is that we, as a nation, have managed to fall so far. I’ve never really considered myself a racist, because I believe what’s on the inside is far more important than what’s on the outside. But I must admit that those within the black community do make it extremely difficult for the rest of us to offer up any sort of sympathy. Most of the problems experienced by blacks are brought about by themselves. And it only serves to make matters worse when those who could offer up some constructive criticism offer up, instead, nothing more than excuses for continuing bad behavior.
And while there are plenty of voices of reason there within the black community, sadly they seem far too few in number, and are rarely, if ever, actually listened to. It is far more often than not that those voices of reason are simply drowned out by the voices of anarchy, lawlessness, and revolution simply because they are louder and can sound more appealing or even enticing. Far more attention is paid to those who are far more interested in improving their own stature within the community than they are in what’s best for those within their own community. And it’s rather unfortunate that the vast majority of blacks are either unable or unwilling to recognize these charlatans for what they really are. Because if they were ever to do that their fortunes would substantially improve.
All of which brings me to Ms. Chanelle Helm. Now if you are unfamiliar with this genius, Ms. Helm is a cofounder and lead organizer for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ (BLM) chapter in Louisville, Kentucky. And it’s as such that she has some very specific, albeit somewhat racist, ideas regarding white people and even came up with a list of 10 requests that were published at ‘Leo Weekly’. Helm said she’s been thinking about what should change in America and the voice inside her head sounded like “that Southern, black grandmama voice.” Her list could be summed up like this: Dear white people, you should give away your home and/or property to a black or brown family in need. She even goes as far as to say whites need to reprioritize their monthly budgets to include donations to blacks so they can purchase land.
So without further ado, here are the first six items on her list:
- White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.
- White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.
- If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.
- White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
- White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
- White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.
The last four descend into profanity and racism, not to mention illiteracy, so you will simply have to consider the source. This is also the point at which all hope for taking this even remotely seriously goes completely out the window. Helm thinks nosy white women should get their racist coworkers and bosses fired and if need be, use physical violence to fight white supremacy:
- White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.
- Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.
- OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.
- Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.
In a sense I think Ms. Helm represents much of what’s wrong within the black community today. You see she thinks that black people shouldn’t be expected to work for those things they want, they should, instead, simply be provided with all manner of freebies and all paid for by whitey. Now I realize that to expect blacks to actually work for a living and to also take some level of responsibility for their lives opens oneself up to being called a racist. And while I am not a racist, what I am is someone who has become rather fed up with sending off more and more of my hard earned money to the government only to then watch as it handed over to those who view themselves as being above having to work for a living. If it’s good enough for me, it should be good enough for them as well.
And in all honesty I think that Ms. Helm is, in reality, likely to be someone who is simply trying make a name for herself! But there’s no doubt that she’s a racist. I’ve always found it a bit odd whenever I hear blacks make the claim that they can’t possibly be racist because they’re black. But I have to say, some of the most racist people I’ve ever met are nearly always black. My descendants came to this country after slavery came to an end, so neither I nor they had anything to do with it. I have worked hard my entire life, and I spent over 20 years in the military. And as far as I’m concerned the United States is the BEST country in the world and I consider myself blessed to live here. If she had any brains, and genuinely cared about black folks, she’d recognize that as well.
However, the bottom line here is that the left has become quite adept, over the years, at using idiots like Ms. Helm as they go about their continuing effort to create and foment all manner of unrest and seek new and more effective ways to further divide the people of this country which they view as being a crucial political tactic and one that results in making it much easier for them to accomplish their rather sinister goals. These useful idiots seek to either completely erase or, failing to accomplish that, thoroughly rewrite important chapters of our history and to alter our culture to the point where it would be nearly unrecognizable to past generations. It is all part of the master plan to replace our government with that ever elusive Marxist utopia that they have been chasing now for decades.
But one thing I actually do tend to agree with, and is something I hear those like Ms. Helm talking about quite frequently, is the concept of reparations. But I have a slightly different take on the topic than does she and others like her. I call it ‘reverse reparations’. Because, you see, it’s to my way of thinking that all those millions of freeloaders out there who have been sponging off the taxpayers for decades, now owe those same U.S. taxpayers roughly $20 Trillion! And that not just some arbitrary amount, that would be the amount that has been spent over the last 50 years in the effort to erase poverty. You know those folks who while identified as living in poverty still own 2 color TVs, a couple of cars, smoke cigarettes, drink booze and pay for strippers all while using other people’s money.
There has been for many years now this cockamamie sense of entitlement that becomes ingrained in some almost instantaneously upon leaving the womb, and it has got to come to an end. Our welfare system created this mess. Entitlements only cause harm to everyone. The people paying for them get robbed, and the people on the receiving end get taught that they don’t need a work ethic. And let’s be real, blacks could dispossess every affluent white person of their property and distribute it to impoverished or struggling black people and within 20 years or less, those same white people would be affluent again, and the black people would be impoverished again. Transferring wealth doesn’t create success. Only education and hard work can increase the odds of one becoming a bona fide success in America.
This ‘Black Lives Matter’ mentality as exhibited by Ms. Helm, is really nothing more than yet another dead end for blacks. Nothing beats a good education and a solid work ethic to create the best opportunity for success. People who complain about Trump’s father giving him everything miss the point. The best thing Trump’s father did was to teach his son about business, not give him money to begin his business. Without those skills a person would quickly lose their inheritance and never be able to regain it. On the other hand, someone who learns a skill, that person will be able to start from nothing and continue to move up the ladder. As they take risks, they may slip along the way but with perseverance and hard work to go along with those skills, will be able to recover and continue climbing.
That process becomes more difficult when there is nobody to help a child learn a skill or a business, either at home or at school. Our schools don’t even bother teaching kids how to balance a checkbook let alone teach a skills or the habits that will help create a self-sufficient adult. Why is that? Because ‘progressives’ have run the schools for the last half century. They teach black kids that they will have to work twice as hard to get half as far, that society is against them and that half the country is racist. If you were taught that in lieu of how to become a responsible adult, would you bother trying in school and take it upon yourself to learn a skill or would you be more likely to give up, drop out, and try to destroy society? Our society is reaping the results of ‘progressive’ ideology with no plan B in sight.
Look, it’s never a good idea to create a sense of entitlement in humans, it’s a bad idea right from the start. Because there is no respect or real appreciation for those things that come too easily. Just look at the people who get everything for ‘free’. For example, when was the last time you saw public housing? There is nothing wrong with a little tough love! In America today the opportunities out there to become successful are limitless. One need only to get off the couch, get off welfare, make it their everyday job to FIND A JOB and then plan for their future accordingly. The opportunities are there, you just have to want it bad enough. But it’s now been made so easy to do nothing and to get paid for it that so many people, and not just blacks, now seem genetically predisposed to being lazy.
