The ups and downs of the Liberal Racism Rollercoaster

Written By | Aug 3, 2019

WASHINGTON: American is on a liberal racism rollercoaster.  “I’m getting torn up by my fellow black people.” Cory Booker cackled it up while being interviewed on CNN. (CNN Panelists Weigh In On Cory Booker’s ‘Kool-Aid’ Debate Moment, Laughs Ensue | HuffPost) “I can explain it to white women in the suburbs,” was a comment by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand during the “debates.” (Kirsten Gillibrand: I can explain white privilege to ‘white women’) Where is the hue and cry about racist remarks? “Fellow black people”; “White women”? You can get whiplash trying to determine when racism is racist.

These two candidates are among the vast number of Democrats and their alleged-journalist cohorts like CNN’s Don Lemon who view what they call racism as something worse than Biblical sin. Of course, this collection of folks never define racism but throw it out like lousy gas. But whatever it is (if it is indeed something) it only gets derisive attention for a selected group: white conservatives. (Don Lemon Brands Trump ‘Racist’ Twice While Moderating Dem Debate)

What if President Trump says…

Should Donald Trump make a comment about his “fellow white people,” it is easy to speculate on the reaction from the likes of Corry Booker. He, and we, would become white supremacists, alt-right, racists.

For those with real imagination, speculate on what the darlings of the Black Caucus, Maxine Waters or Shelia Jackson Lee would have said. Whatever the comment, the response will conclude with impeach, impeach, impeach.

But Gillibrand’s had a touch more folly to it.

By saying “white women in the suburbs” did she mean that there are no blacks in the suburbs (racist)? Or did she mean that there are black women there, but white women are stupid and need education (racist)?

What if Mike Pence says that he needs to press white men in the suburbs to vote, imagine what a charlatan like Al Sharpton would have spewed.

However, historical remarks by Sharpton might give a clue to the unimaginative.

“White folks was in the caves while we (blacks) was building empires. … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”

The Reverend (maybe) Al Sharpton.

As a competent authority and source as any, H.G. Wells’ Outline of History gives a clear and studied definition of 4 human racial groups or races: Australoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, and Caucasoid.

He describes traits and origins but never does he mention nor suggest that by singling out one race for study, there is something called “racism.”

Modern politicians had offered this addition to the human lexicon for their aggrandizement. And it is always selectively done as the above mentioned archetypical political hacks who will say almost anything to get elected, often demonstrate. And most so-called reporters and media type will sit by and cackle and joke with these same archetypes without a clue as to what they mean.

This article is intended for any of the above four races.
