Recently I saw a newspaper headline that reminded me that just because Jonestown, Guyana is on the ash heap of history, people are still drinking the Kool-aid.
The headline said something to the effect that blacks are attracted to candidate Ben Carson. Holy segregation, Batman! I could never understand the insane concept of “the Black vote”, the Hispanic vote” ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
Did Martin Luther King’s idea to judge people not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character fall on deaf ears? Evidently, it did!
After BO’s reelection, in a county office in Easton, PA, most of the people were ecstatic about a black man being reelected. I overheard one Kool-aid drinker passionately tell someone that he had written a letter to BO to say how great it was that a black man can be elected in this country. I thought the guy was going to pea his pants.
The person listening to him asked if BO responded to the letter. The answer was “no.”
In his concurring opinion on a U.S. Supreme Court case that, at least legally, put affirmative action, which requires an arbitrary number of minorities to be hired, to death, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that using race even for the benefit of a particular group is racist.
This is how Barry Obama got elected, at least in part.
Back to Ben Carson. What difference does ethnicity make about choosing a leader? None!
Years ago, when the Temple University public radio station was making changes, I read a piece in the newspaper in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia that said that the station would play classical music for whites, and jazz for blacks. As Mr. Spock would say, “that’s highly illogical.” And stupid.
This is what Justice Thomas would call “assigned behaviors.”
I’ve listened to both classical and jazz. What does it make me? Someone with an identity crisis?
Dr. Carson is high on my list of candidates for president, based on the content of his character and his prescription for what would be best for the health of our country. Like his initials, BO, the content of the character of our current president stinks.
We need to stick to issues, And believe me, we have some serious issues that need to be resolved, not fiddle around with silly race games. You baby boomers probably remember the comedy cop show Car 54 Where Are You?
“There’s a hold up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn’s broken out in fights.
There’s a traffic jam in Harlem
That’s backed up to Jackson Heights.
There’s a scout troop short a child,
Kruschev’s due at Idlewild
Car 54, Where Are You? “
The question is: Where were the American people the last two presidential elections? I know where there heads were. In a very dark place!
The reason some white boys played some funky music and voted for BO is guilt. Not to worry, Professor Walter E. Williams, who happens to be black, has given us amnesty for past wrongs. http://econfaculty.gmu.edu/wew/gift.html
As far as blacks being attracted to Ben Carson: Although race shouldn’t matter, this is good news It doesn’t matter who you are, Dr. Carson is a much better choice that BO.
I cannot understand why blacks would vote for a progressive such as Barry Obama. As I documented in previous blogs, progressives have hurt the little guy, especially blacks! Take LBJ’s so-called Great Society. Please! Much of the out-of-control situation we have with groups such as Black Lives Matter has its roots in The Great Society.
I don’t understand why blacks vote Democrat when, as historically, they have not had black’s best interests at heart. After the Republicans left a decade or so after the civil war, the Democrats took charge and they brought Jim Crow laws.
In the current administration, blacks have been hurt. So has everyone else. One thing I’ll say about BO is that he’s an equal opportunity oppressor, in a sense. He does have a double standard, however.
On Glenn Beck’s TV program on conservative blacks, a black woman said that Obama practices “plantation politics”. She pointed out that BO will give “us” food stamps, but nixed school choice, where blacks have a better opportunity to move on up.
Progressives, as witnessed in the lame stream media, don’t want blacks to leave the liberal plantation.
One thing I like about Dr. Carson is that he stands his ground for what he believes, defending himself against the race hustlers and the liberal media.
Elections are not about race. It’s about what’s best for our country.
As radio talk show host Tom Marr succinctly said “When you have liberal rule, you have more crime and poverty.”
One group that is particularly hurt by progressives is the homeless, as I documented in my blog Fight Homelessness; Don’t Vote for Progressives.
A local liberal claimed she’s been helping the homeless and that they need the government, they need her. Well, I think we are waiting for Godot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waiting_for_Godot
I have to ask the American people: CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU?
