I’ve always said, that as a white guy looking in, it was rather obvious to me that blacks in this country are essentially their own worst enemy.  And every now and again there’s someone who comes along that kind of agrees with me.  Take for example Colin Kaepernick’s outrageous accusation that the United States is a country that oppresses people of color.  And in using Kaepernick as our example, I think it’s worth talking about an interview that Charles Barkley recently gave to a local Philadelphia radio station.  Because it was during that interview that Barkley stated that “unintelligent,” “brainwashed” African-Americans, and not whites or cops, are the ones keeping successful blacks down.

Now apparently what started Barkley off in making his comments is the fact that he was posed a question on the radio show ‘Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis’ about a rumor that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was being accused by his teammates of not being “black enough.”   Barkley responded by saying, “Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out.”  It may be coming out, but it’s not likely to amount to much.

He went on to say, “One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret.”  Barkley concluded by saying, “There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success, It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful…We’re the only ethnic group who say, ‘Hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.’ It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”

And really what he’s saying here is nothing new.  I’ve heard the same thing said by any number of prominent blacks, and yet those within the black community continue to ignore any advice intended to help, preferring instead to blame everything on whitey and the cops.  I guess it’s just easier to play the victim role than show even the smallest amount of personal responsibility.  Those trying to help are called Uncle Tom and business goes on as usual.  It’s just too much ‘work’ to do anything else. And let’s be honest, there are simply not enough black leaders saying this same thing.  And I’ve always thought it rather strange, even sad, that we have never really heard such a critique come from our first black president!

But sad fact is Barkley is absolutely correct, and there are many people who would actually agree with him.  But they seem to be pretty severely outnumbered by those who declare that what we REALLY need is to have a “dialogue” about racial issues, the translation of which is that they want to bash white people and the history of race in America without actually having to deal with any of the issues that Barkley is talking about.  Black people will never improve their social position until they can decide for themselves to address those issues that are so desperately in need of being addressed.  And quite frankly, I just don’t see that taking place any time soon.  Because there is no will to do it.  It’s all just too damn hard!

It’s the Democrats who perpetuate this sentiment by legitimizing every single harmful behavior and telling blacks they are right even when they so very clearly are not.  The result is that they never advance and they never recover, and are in an unbreakable cycle of dependency.  They continue to depend upon Democrats to keep supporting them.  But all they have done for the past fifty years is provide chin music and supportive lip service in exchange for their signatures in blood as a voting block.  And what the Democrat Party had managed to do is both diabolical in its brilliance, and has never been done before.  They have, over time, brainwashed an entire race of people into demanding slavery, as both an entitlement and as a right.




Well, it would appear that there are stupid people and then there are REALLY stupid people.  And one of those REALLY stupid people is a guy by the name of Aaron Goggans.  Mr. Goggans is, or so I’m told, the core organizer of Black Lives Matter, DC, and it’s according to Mr. Goggans that black-on-black crime is nothing more than a myth.  At least that’s what he told CNN’s Carol Costello during an appearance on the network this past Thursday.  So yes, he’s REALLY stupid!

It was in responding to a video that former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis had posted earlier in the week in which he called for removing guns from the streets as a key part of solving the problem of black-on-black crime, that Mr. Goggans made his rather idiotic comments.  Goggans said, “It’s important to talk about the myth of black-on-black crime as just that — a myth.”  And he added, “Any Google search of the term comes up with a lot of different articles.”

“So, Ray Lewis is wrong?” interjected Costello.  To which this genius Goggans responded that “Ray Lewis is talking about a lot of myths and preconceptions about what the [Black Lives Matter] movement is.  He went on to say, “Intercommunity crime happens in all communities across the country, and it is a problem that the movement of Black Lives is focusing on,” he added. “The movement of black lives is also focusing on state sanctioned violence. It’s a different thing.”

And it was then this moron said, “It’s not just a few white cops killing a few unarmed black men. It’s actually the state systematically creating up systems that are killing black people, both black women, black children, black queer, black men, black trans and black gender non-conforming folks.”  Huh?  You know, these people just never cease to amaze me, just when I think I’ve heard all the crazy shit I could ever here, along comes a guy like Mr. Goggans to prove me wrong.

But look, I think we are all able to recognize the fact that Barry and the Democrat Party DEPEND, and quite substantially, on stupid people in order to remain in power.  I once thought that because of such things as the fact that black unemployment remains high that blacks would eventually start to wise up?  But that hasn’t been the case, it’s almost as if they would rather not work, preferring to simply live off the rest of us.  That’s not being racist, that’s just how it seems.

People like this guy remind me of those idiots who do stupid crap behind on-scene reporters. And it’s just like those morons, this moron gets on TV and sounds like the complete imbecile that he so very obviously is. The BLM is nothing but a modern day minstrel show which is designed to do exactly what Goggans is doing, make black people look and sound foolish. As if many of them needed any help in that area.  It would seem we have a real life ‘Stepin Fetchit’ in our midst.



Blacks 09

As happens at the end of every month, we’ve once again been told the employment situation in this country is the best it’s been in years.  And all thanks to that economic genius, Barack Hussein Obama.  If only it were so.  So, earlier today we were told that even though the economy supposedly added jobs and the national unemployment rate remained relatively unchanged, the Black unemployment rate still sat at being more than twice as high as the White unemployment rate and nearly double the national unemployment rate.  For March the unemployment rate among Blacks was said to be 9.0 percent while among whites it supposed to be 4.3 percent.

And in keeping with the longer-term trend, the unemployment rate among teens was said to be triple the national unemployment rate with teenagers aged 16-19 experiencing an unemployment rate of nearly 16 percent. We were told that white teens had an unemployment rate of 13.9 percent while black teen unemployment was 25.3 percent and Hispanic teens had an unemployment rate of 15.6 percent. But look, can we all agree that these supposed unemployment numbers that come from the government at the end of every month are little more than examples of what are, in all likelihood, nothing more than the purest form of government fiction?

These numbers on which the health and wellbeing of our economy are supposed based are, and have been for the last seven years, completely bogus and will remain so until such time as those who have forever left the work force out of frustration are finally once again counted among those who comprise the unemployed.  Regarding the issue of black unemployment, as an example fewer than 50% of Detroit’s black students finish high school and over 35% of young black men in that city have arrest/prison records. As an employer, how anxious would one be to hire either?  Studies have shown, over and over, that it has nothing to do with race discrimination.

So yeah, it’s all because of their skin color and not their language, education, dress, hygiene, work history, or criminal record.  There are plenty of people of all races that are as a lazy as pet pigs and will ride the unemployment horse until it finally drops dead. They simply don’t see any need to work as long as they’re getting a nice fat check covered by their friendly neighborhood taxpayers. They will contact employers with no intent of actually working. They work the system like the able bodied people that feign illness to qualify for disability benefits. It is a broken system and there are those who are expert at manipulating that system.

And if we can put all of the idiotic political correctness aside, there are very definable real life reasons for these figures.  And my message to Black America is one that says it’s going to be up to you to turn these figures around because it’s only you who can fix them.  What’s going to be required is for you to look in the mirror and then start at the ground floor of the appalling culture which you have created and then begin to work your way up.  Whitey did not do it you, you did it to yourself.  You need to come to your senses, politically speaking, and start voting for those who see the importance of making it possible for citizens to become less dependent on government.

Black America, with much assistance coming from the Democrat Party, created the pig wallow, but the time has now come to drain the swamp and create a new, more responsible society and abandon the hyphenated values, and commit to becoming a supporter of American values. We have tried it your way in the pig sty and it simply doesn’t work, so try joining the United States of America for a change.  Heck even the Illegals get that message and are surpassing Black America and their broken failed society that they want to blame on everyone else except Black America who is responsible for what has become a failed society by its own destructive hand.

The bottom line here is that the time has now come to grow up and take responsibility for the disaster that black culture has become. The sad truth is that blacks have been convinced into becoming their own worst enemies.  They continue to support a political party that does nothing more than to make allowances for their bad behavior.  Blacks should expect nothing to change for the better as long as they refuse to face the reality of what are essentially their own homegrown problems. Their fate as a people lies in their own hands, not with a political party that does little more than to make empty promises in exchange for their votes.
