is frequently very good.

Let’s be clear: I have lived up and down the East Coast. I have counseled in private and with total confidentiality with thousands from various parts of the country (I was a psychologist in the Navy). I myself  grew up in the Mountain West. But I have been quite involved in state and national politics of all sorts and in several parts of the country for decades.

Yet I have never heard anyone say blatantly racist things. I did hear a woman in Southern Virginia voice some things that were fine but could be interpreted as borderline (she was from the deep South). My wife was called a “Yankee” once when we lived in the South (and she was born and raised in the Mountain West, as well). But that is as extreme as it ever got.

I’m not saying racists do not exist–I’m sure they do. I saw some huge bearded guy in a jacked-up old pick up with the Stars and Bars tacked to the interior ceiling of his truck as a sort of headliner. That was in Virginia, and I never talked to that guy. It was so unusual that my sister visiting me in Southern Virginia  (visiting from California) excitedly pointed at him when we were at a stoplight, “Look, there’s a redneck!” I drove off quickly so as not to get killed…

So I have no doubt that racism exists in small pockets. But hearing anything about it was a very rare or non-existent event, even in the South! So it is clearly a fringe phenomenon. You can say that I just didn’t run in those crowds, but the fact that I didn’t even hear about it while talking confidentally to people from all over the South as a psychologist and then as a clergyman speaks to the fact that it isn’t all that prevalent or accepted by typical people. It is fringe. I don’t drink beer, but you can bet that I can name half a dozen brands of beer off the top of my head! Yeah, it’s in the culture. Racism seems not to be the same at all. The Left tells us that racism is rampant, and yet I have never personally seen a public display of it. Have you? If not, why do you think it is rampant?

So all this focus on the KKK and widespread discrimination against blacks seems a bit misguided (and rather self-serving). And add to that the fact that Donald Trump is vilified as a racist, yet no one can name a single racist thing he has said or done! And if he did 40 years ago (I’ve never heard that), so what? Attitudes can change. I have two words for Democrats: Robert Byrd. Byrd was an actual leader of the KKK and used the N-word on national TV within the last few years (while he was a sitting Senator)! Yet he was a Democrat Senator so he was given a pass by the Lefty shills in the media and his Democrats co-conspirators in congress. They just said, “Look, a squirrel!”

Conservatives are NOT the people who discriminate, here.

Here’s what I don’t get:

14 Nov

In reading a TON of Lefty commentators, they ALL claim that Donald Trump is a flagrant and unapologetic racist and that he foments violence against minorities. It seems to be a “given” for these folks.

But just what has Donald Trump said that is racist? How has he fomented violence against minorities? He has said he wants to deport some Mexicans (criminals), though other Mexicans are just fine. This group to be deported includes criminals who have broken our immigration laws. But is this racist? He has said that some Middle Eastern males are violent jihadists, Uhm, that’s not racism, that is just straight-up the truth! So vetting these guys is racist?

So what has Donald Trump said that is racist? Is this just another “Old Jedi Mind Trick” that the Left uses to impugn someone? You know, like the idea that National Socialists were on the right. Yeah, riiiiight…

So what gives? Is this just another ruse? If you can, please show me something racist that Donald Trump has said. I’m waiting with ‘bated breath. I just haven’t been able to find anything, and unless someone is able to point me to some obviously racist things, I guess I have to assume that this is just another Big Lie. Or maybe the racism is just so subtle that most of us can’t see it. But then again, Donald Trump is not exactly subtle…

It is a MAJOR issue

06 Sep

that Trump is “going after” the Black vote. There is a very good reason that the Left is having a kitten over this. They have counted on Blacks for votes–and the have had virtually 100% of the Black vote. But that changing is a direct threat to the Left. They have gotten just barely over 50% of the total even with the Black vote. If Republican got even 20% of the Black vote it would be curtains for Democrats. THAT is why the Democrats are so whacked out about Trump reaching out to the Black community.

The usual Lefty “news” outlets like CNN, ABC, and CBS try hard to make it seems like Trump’s message does not resonate–they know that they and the Left (though I repeat myself) are well and truly hosed if Blacks ever leave the Democrat plantation. They are racist, and work to keep Blacks under their thumbs.

The truth is

23 Aug

that all the “helping” of Black America only serves to keep them down, and the Democrat party has capitalized on that. I would love to see that change, because I actually care about people.

I guess we all knew in our hearts

23 Jul

that the DNC is hotbed of racial animus.

Honestly, I don’t know why a Jewish person would bleat softly and go along with them. And yet, most cultural Jews vote Democrat. They are just bound to tradition and an animus toward anything even vaguely Christian, I guess. But it is truly irrational.

A surprisingly

good article.

I grew up in the West, so I don’t have the same “gut” reactions that some people do on this subject. But I lived back East in both the North and the South. My wife (who also grew up in the West) was shocked when a fellow church member in the South disparagingly called her a “Yankee.”  It was after my wife expressed an opinion, and the other person said something like, “Yeah, but you’re just a Yankee.”

But you would be shocked at the discrimination I saw when I lived in Boston. I was in the military, so I was around Black people a lot. But many in the Boston area sure weren’t! There aren’t many Blacks with a home in Hingham, for example.

I was at a fast food place there once and heard the workers speaking Haitian Creole. Now I lived for several years in and around Port-Au-Prince and am fluent in Haitian Creole (I even co-wrote a textbook and did a fair amount of simultaneous translation). So I started speaking to them in that language. They were dumbfounded that a white guy sounded so authentic in a rather obscure language–I had lived in many places in their own country that they had never even seen! They refused to charge me for that meal…

And in perhaps the photo of the year, a Black state trooper helps an elderly neo-NAZI overcome with heat at an event and with a swastika on his shirt to safety. Regardless of what others do, YOU do what is right!

 

The Left: “Why can’t we

have Socialism like Norway or Sweden? You, know, all white!” You know, Sweden and Norway are always described as the ideal for Socialists, not Argentina or China. Could it be (whisper) racism?

I want to go on record as saying

07 Apr

that I am against racism. I subscribe to what was expressed in Martin Luther King’s speech where he says that people should be judged on the content of their character rather than on the color of their skin. I guess you can’t believe that and hang with the Democrats!

Here’s why I think Affirmative Action

07 Apr

policies are so damaging:

Let’s say you are extremely bright. You work hard and get straight A’s in high school. Then you apply to an elite college. While there you work hard and get very good grades. You then blow the roof off the medical school entrance exam. So you apply to a very elite medical school, with outstanding letters of reference. You graduate at the top of your class. You are extremely good at what you do.

And you are Black.

Then you open your own practice. When a patient sees you, what is he or she supposed to think? Did you get into medical school school because you were wicked bright? Or did you get in because you had very pedestrian grades but were of the favored minority? There is no way the patient can know that you were a “star” in college.

But the patient does know that very often black people are admitted with lower credentials. So you get painted with the same brush. You are extremely competent. But there is a nagging question on the part of the patient. And it is not racist. It is a perfectly valid question.

Maybe the patient decides it would be better not to have to constantly monitor or second-guess and just find another physician who they know got no special treatment…

Affirmative Action hurts those it is intended to help. Like many Leftist ideas, it totally backfires.
