“Four African-American Men With Hammer Brutally Attack White Man At Home Depot”
I’m sure he had it coming, if not for showing disrespect, than for the years of oppression his ancestors inflicted on the black man. Or for his membership in the 1%, hot dog vendors being notorious for not paying their fair share.
– Kind of like that white Australian vacationing here who was shot in the back. I’m sure his ancestors were unkind to the aborigines or the Maoris. Besides, didn’t Crocodile Dundee show up some brothers in that movie years back with his giant, utilitarian colonialist knife? Aussie bitches need to pay.
Look: if it’s going to make news every time a “White Hispanic” fires into the chest of a black teen who happens to be pounding his head into the pavement at the time — and our half-white President decides to join the national attempt to figuratively lynch the Hispanic half of that obviously racist white Hispanic — then I suppose it’s past time to point out that the real “racial conversation” we need to have in this country redounds more to the attitudes of many blacks toward whites whose only sin is being white.
That’s the very definition of racism, and Spike Lee’s ludicrous and self-serving dodges aside, or Michael Dyson’s fast-talking, belligerent bullshit academic cant notwithstanding, there’s the starting point for your national discussion on race.
So. Do the right thing.
Eric Holder says we Americans don’t have the guts to have that discussion, even as he works diligently to avoid prosecuting “his people.”
Me, I’m ready to talk, and have been for years. Having predicted here publicly in 2007 that an Obama presidency would set race relations back 40 years, I think I deserve a seat at the table. Critical race theory doesn’t confound me or shame me. Colonialist theory is self-rationalizing leftist dogma that attempts to inoculate a given ethnic or racial group from outside criticisms. Black liberation theology is filled to the brim with leftwing dogma and its kissing cousin, anti-Semitism. So yeah, bring the “dialogue.”
Honestly. It’s times like this that I really do miss my often heated discussions with the late Aaron Hawkins.
