America absolutely has a problem, but it isn’t race—it’s the media. Jussie Smollett and the Covington Catholic school boys are just the latest manifestations of progressive liberals who still want to use racial hate hoaxes as an opportunity to judge and disparage those who don’t hold their political views and continue the faux compassion they have for minorities. And like these two high-profile cases, the progenitors of these false narratives are pushed by an all too willing elite media as being above reproach because of the color of their skin.
There is an undisputed attack on white people in media and academia, but there is just one major problem with it. Almost every single racial hate incident purported to be done by whites and ginned up in the media is found later to be false, which is why when the news broke that Jussie Smollett had been attacked by two white people screaming, “This is MAGA country”—complete with noose and bleach—everyone’s antenna immediately went up.
Smollett’s story never sounded plausible and that’s because, statistically, it isn’t. Chicago voted an overwhelming 83 percent for Hillary in the 2016 presidential election, hardly MAGA country. And as two of my favorite conservative black pundits, Diamond and Silk, said, conservatives are asleep at 2:00 a.m. because they have a job to get up to in the morning. It was more likely that the two white “suspects” wearing red hats would themselves be attacked in overwhelmingly black Chicago in the wee hours of the morning.
Real racism in America is difficult to find on the right, but it is in plain view on the left. Following Virginia Governor Northam’s recent black face disaster and demand for impeachment, it was also found that his successors also had photos of themselves wearing black face. The Democrats are also the political party of the KKK and Planned Parenthood and supported former President Clinton’s draconian jail terms for drugs crimes, which overwhelmingly affect minority communities.
Woke Americans know all this, the same as we know that the media believe that if it doesn’t report the race of those who assault, rob and murder, we won’t know, statistically, that it was likely a black person who committed the crime. Despite the media’s attempt to hide the real numbers of black crime, Americans do know that much of the crime that happens in our inner cities is black on black crime, not racial crimes perpetuated by poorly educated, racists white Trump supporters.
Common sense and the facts tell us that there are no roaming bands of white teenagers with noose in hand looking to assault black people on the streets or on campus—simply because they are black. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for black people, who routinely harass and assault white people and Asians in their neighborhoods because of their race. Many black people are afraid to venture out in their own neighborhoods, not because they fear whites, but because crime is rampant in their own backyards.
Colin Flaherty, in his book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It, details the many crimes that black people are perpetuating against whites, including the knockout game, and the shameful silence of the media. “We talk about everything black except black mob violence and lawlessness. That is taboo. And the result is that few know about it. Fewer still are talking about it. Today it is at epidemic levels in almost every city in the country.”
So if this level of racial hatred isn’t common behavior in uneducated whites, why is the media perpetuating the absurd characterizations of white rednecks hunting unsuspecting black students or citizens with a noose simply because they support President Trump? Because calling marginalized white people rednecks, deplorables or smelly Walmart people is neither new or unique, nor is it unique that white elites use the black population for political gain. In Thomas Sowell’s book, Black Rednecks and White Liberals, he quotes a statement reported on about poor whites from the South in 1956:
“These people are creating a terrible problem in our cities. They can’t or won’t hold a job, they flout the law constantly and neglect their children, they drink too much and their moral standards would shame an alley cat. For some reason or other, they absolutely refuse to accommodate themselves to any kind of decent, civilized life.”
Sowell then quotes a 1951 survey in Detroit that found that white Southerners living there were considered “undesirable” by 21 percent of those surveyed, compared to 13 percent who ranked blacks the same way. This attitude toward uneducated, Southern or Appalachian whites continues to this day. In fact, Sowell argues in his book that it was this particular white culture of the Antebellum South that so affected the reckless behavior demonstrated in blacks today. They were, in essence, brothers and sisters in a culture that promoted reckless behavior.
What has become clear, however, is that the white elite—the judges, teachers, politicians, media and think tanks—continue to scapegoat uneducated whites as the perpetrators of hate crime against blacks while enabling many blacks to blame their irresponsible behavior on white oppression. This is why when the media reports on crimes such as the Smollett case, they have no compunction in naming the race of the suspects but will not report the race of criminal suspects. The white elite in America have a historical disdain for those outside of their liberal bubble, especially whites outside of their class. They see blue collar whites as a tiresome speed bump in the road to achieving their Utopian dream of socialism. They see blacks as expendable but necessary pawns.
Today, according to BlackGenocide.org, 78 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. Blacks make up 12 percent of the population, but 35 percent of the abortions performed in America are on black women. In 2013, Planned Parenthood terminated the lives of 117,955 black babies in the womb. LifeNews.com says there has been 19 million black deaths since 1973. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the incarceration rate for blacks is about 3,074 per 100,000 residents, which is more than six times as high as the national average. It is the progressive left, the white elites in academia and media today, that are continuing to try and control and exterminate the black population in order to push their socialist agenda.
Perhaps then, what we have in Americas is much more of a class issue than a racial issue. Those progressives who claim to speak for minorities have actually abandoned the black community to genocide and created inner city environments where lawlessness rules rather than responsible behavior because it serves their political interests. The political class has also abandoned low- and middle-class whites in America to opiate abuse, poverty and joblessness. Today, this same group has nearly the same number of single, head of households and women on welfare as blacks. Yet, we are somehow to believe the media that this pathetic group of addicts and poor people are attacking black people with racial hatred in black cities such as Chicago.
It is elite whites in academia that insist on teaching young black people that every problem they have is due to an oppressive white culture, which is fomenting the racial hate we see in black communities against whites today. It is this same group in media that is also misrepresenting the facts of high-profile police shootings, such as Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Evidence emerged later in this case that showed that the nearly 300-pound Brown tried to wrest a gun away from a policeman and that he was ordered to freeze before he charged Darren Wilson and was shot. The media didn’t cover any of this, but rather giddily rooted for blood in the streets.
Democrats are using the same tired narrative of racists whites dressed up in new clothes. It’s time to reject the racial nonsense fomented by the media elites and for both blacks and whites to come together and begin to hold their real and common enemy accountable for the dangerous rhetoric they are perpetuating. We have seen the enemy, and he is not us. #Reignwell
