White Privilege? What About Black Privilege?

Regardless of what Democrats and the media say, ‘White Privilege’ is hogwash.

The word privilege means “a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people.” Privilege is, therefore, not based on accomplishment but rather something given by another person or entity.

The most glaring example of Black Privilege is that which is enjoyed by Barack Obama. He is at best an incompetent fool, but more properly an enemy of America; and his Black Privilege status keeps him from being described this way.

In almost every walk of life, from schools to workplaces, we can find members of other races denied their just rewards to satisfy the demands of Affirmative Action, which is the codification of Black Privilege. We’ll never know how many non-Black Privileged Americans saw their hard work wiped away to feed the demands of Black Privilege.

This begs several questions about the nature of Black Privilege and the extent of its presence in our everyday life.

Consider these circumstances of Black Privilege.

There are several double standards for Whites and Blacks, but which group benefits the most from the “invisible thumb on the scale?” The NAACP is celebrated, but any attempt to start a viable NaaWhiteP is attacked as racist.

Black Privilege demands that Black rappers who sing the dirtiest, foulest words about women and killing police officers are celebrated as “artists.”

Black Privilege allows for the grossly disproportionate use of taxpayer funds to support Black families which are multiple-generation welfare recipients. Questions about how this condition can continue are met with references to the plurality of those on welfare being White because Black Privilege demands it. Blacks who make up just 12% of our population suck up 25% of welfare funds, but this is never mentioned because Black Privilege demands it.

Black Privilege allows Blacks to whine that there should be more Black managers in sports–without mentioning the comparative scarcity of White players in the NBA and NFL. These leagues are meritocracies as they should be, but Black Privilege is never mentioned when the demographics of our 26% Black Postal System workforce is pointed out.

Black Privilege allows Blacks to parade around in hoodies with their hands up, regardless of where they are. Blacks are allowed to make “political statements” during professional sporting events because their Black Privilege says so.

Black Privilege demands that no mention of Blacks committing nearly half of the murders recorded in our nation can ever be made. It prevents any mention of surveys that consistently show that Blacks are the most anti-Gay and anti-Semitic group in our society.

Of course, there are many more examples of Black Privilege; but what is clear is that it is not the mythical “White Privilege” that is destroying our country. It is the very real millstone of Black Privilege that is pulling us down; and unless we talk about these privileges, they will destroy America.

Will ‘Spoliation Of Evidence’ Finally Bring Hillary Clinton Down?

Hillary Clinton has an amazing ability to slither out of scandals. She can figuratively walk through fire and keep going because the media is on her side and will not ask her any tough questions about the abundant evidence of her misdeeds. She has always been able to make clearly damning evidence nuanced and muddied to the point of extinction. She has rarely answered questions; and when she does, she employs her husband’s trick of giving a non-answer answer to a question posed today, and when asked for a true answer tomorrow giving the response: “I’ve already answered that yesterday; can we move on to something important?” As infuriating as this is, the Clintons get away with it because the media attacks anyone who dares to try to pry a real answer from either Bill or Hillary.

If this were the only way to nail the Wicked Witch of Washington, she would have a clear path to the White House because there are enough of the same dopes who wanted to elect the first black man to the presidency as those who want to elect the first woman to the presidency. Fortunately, however, the battle doesn’t end there. She is faced with at least one problem that cannot be nuanced away.

By her own admission, Hillary destroyed evidence (the tens of thousands of emails) after she was put on notice that a Congressional Committee wanted to see them. In legal terms, this is known as “spoliation of evidence.” This puts Hillary in a legal crossfire with only three bad choices. First, she can continue to deny everything in hopes that the “boys in the newsroom” can figure out a lie for her to tell that will make it all go away. That, of course, is a dangerous peg to hang her hat on. Hillary can also continue to obstruct the investigation into the Benghazi murders by spoiling even more evidence, which is a bad choice. The third choice is to cooperate with the various committees and allow the truth to come out.

Clinton is currently digging in her heels in and saying, “Yeah, I spoiled damning evidence against me; what are you going to do about it?” With Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, at the receiving end of this snide response, raise your hand if you think Hillary Clinton can continue to lie and eventually wiggle free of his hook.

Spoiling evidence is a desperate ploy from a desperate woman.

Democrat Propagandist Ken Burns Reminds Us Of How Self-Absorbed Liberals Really Are

Recently, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns was the commencement speaker at a college graduation. As he spoke, he reminded us that liberals are always angry and dissatisfied with America and never pass up a chance to say so.

Here are some random thoughts about his speech.

Among other subjects in a predictable assortment of tripe, Burns essentially apologized for being white as he stood with a smug, self-assured look while hitting his applause lines. His apology represents a favorite liberal ploy of giving away something that they don’t own. My right to apologize or not apologize for something is mine and mine alone.

He insisted that “Black lives matter” while not whispering a word about the majority of black murder victims dying at the hands of other blacks. The make-up of Burns’ audience was revealed by the huge drop off in applause when Burns followed up with “all lives matter.” The brothers and sisters don’t want to hear that.

He used a familiar, liberal line about how “Almost weekly, a black man is killed by the police,” without including a word about the circumstances. He also failed to mention the fact that blacks kill dozens more blacks than are killed by cops. He said nothing about the savagery that is visited upon blacks by other blacks who belong in prison as he bemoaned the number of black men in prison. He said nothing about the fact that his hometown in New Hampshire is less than 3% black–and hundreds of miles from the nearest black ghetto.

Burns referenced the Civil War and told his student audience that he was drafting them into the “Union Army.” He didn’t mention the fact that the Union Army had to free the great-grandparents of his audience at gunpoint from the Democrats who ran the plantations then and still run them today.

He alluded to “plantations” and “company stores” still around today, but never mentioned that it is Democrats, his Party, who hold blacks as captives in nightmarish lives and lie to them about who is responsible for their misery.

He had nothing good to say about America and chose to hold the hands of his minority audience, cautioning about the world outside of family and school being scary.

Burns typifies what is wrong with the Left. They have no understanding of actual human nature and are determined to see the world as they want it to be rather than as it is.

Burns and people like him are eager to convince graduating minority students that their world is essentially the same as the one their slave ancestors lived in. Such is the reason that Burns and fellow race hustlers are the problem, not the solution.

Hypocrite John Kerry Own Millions In Oil And Gas Stocks

Is there anything, anything at all that is genuine about John Kerry?

When it comes to Kerry, it’s hard to decide which is more revolting: his hypocrisy or the notion that he believes he is fooling us. From his days as a “scruffy” vet just trying to get someone to surrender in Vietnam, to his gigolo marriages, to his hypocritical claims to be a practicing Catholic, Lurch rings as true as a wooden bell.

The duplicitous qualities that make him so offensive are excellent traits for membership in Barack Obama’s cabinet. As Secretary of State, Kerry has a perfect record of selling out America’s interests. Kowtowing to our enemies has become his trade mark.

Lurch will say whatever Barack tells him to say. He will stand in a room and deny global warming is a hoax and actually describe “climate change” as a “national defense issue” on par with ISIS and nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. This is perhaps his most appalling lie and the best example of his duplicity.

In March, while warning of the dangers of climate change and whining that only a switch from fossil fuel to solar energy, “wind, and other “clean energy” could save the day, the two-faced (both making him look more like Secretariat than a Secretary of State) Kerry neglected to mention that he holds investments worth millions in at least FIFTY “oil and gas related companies.”

Public records that have been carefully researched by Ron Arnold of The Heartland Institute show that Kerry has been substantially invested in fossil fuel and natural gas companies for at least ten years; and he has not stopped pumping his money into this industry over the years.

These facts underscore some very alarming realities about how our dysfunctional government works. Clearly, no one made an issue of his built-in conflicts of interest when he was being confirmed by his pals in the Uniparty Senate. Moreover, that an outspoken “enemy” of fossil fuels would own such a substantial amount of stock in the very industry he has vilified for more than twenty five years speaks volumes about his level of comfort at never being called out on his hypocrisy by an equally duplicitous media.

Here are some of the highlights of Mr. Arnold’s excellent report on the two-faced John Kerry’s portfolio:

Kerry owned 365 securities totaling $232,674,572 to $322,785,148, including contentious stock in ExxonMobil and a Canadian firm with ties to the Keystone XL pipeline, Cenovus Energy Inc., as posted on Open Secrets.org, website of the Center for Responsive Politics. Office holder assets and liabilities are reported only in value ranges rather than exact amounts, so precise net worth can’t be ascertained and is counted from the lower number.

Office of Government Ethics lawyers immediately vetted Kerry’s family wealth and his spouse’s Heinz ketchup fortune and determined that the new cabinet post required that the couple divest 140 different securities across three different trusts and that the new Secretary recuse himself from decisions with any ethical implications – but there was a catch.

On January 8, 2013, John Kerry signed an agreement letter to the government to relinquish specified assets within 90 days of taking the oath of office. He agreed to have his trustees segregate forbidden stocks, mostly large holdings of a single stock, into a custodial account and sell them off so questions could not come up. He also agreed to diversify and downsize his investments so that even the fossil fuel stocks qualified as “non-conflicting assets.” Kerry pledged to take no action as Secretary of State that would affect his financial interests “unless I first obtain a written waiver, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 208(b)(l), or qualify for a regulatory exemption, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 208(b)(2).”

Much like his SF 180, we are still waiting for him to obtain this waiver.

Sadly, we will hear nothing about this matter because our government is run by a Uniparty whose only interest is gaining and maintaining power to be shared between its Republican and Democrat wings.

Michelle Obama’s Shameless, ‘Woe Is Me And Thee’ Speech At Tuskagee Institute Is Ironic…

Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Tuskegee Institute was a shameless litany of all the problems blacks HAD over their history in America–and those she felt had personally harmed her. Allowing the thought that blacks have made ANY progress whatsoever, especially in the past fifty years, would be absolutely impossible in the world she and her husband inhabit.

The Tuskegee Institute is a relative success story among the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU.) It was founded in 1881, and one of its driving forces was a former slave named Booker T. Washington, a man who recognized the opportunities that were presented to him, other former slaves, and their decedents in post-Civil War America. Washington was a leader of the African American community until his death in 1915.

One of Washington’s strongest enemies was W.E.B. Dubois, who Washington saw as a fake who was more interested in lining his pockets than helping black people. If he was alive today, Washington would be revolted by Michelle Obama’s “Woe is me and thee” speech, given at his beloved Tuskegee Institute. Here’s what Washington had to say about people like her and DuBois more than one hundred years ago.

There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

Michelle’s speech played on the fact that over the past fifty years, the HBCUs have become hand wringing, “hate White America” bastions where any hint of departing from liberal orthodoxy is attacked. She knew who her audience was.

She talked about “daily slights” and added: “those age-old problems are stubborn and they haven’t fully gone away.” These were two great slippery phrases like “hope and change.” Neither has any basis, but that is the idea – the audience will fill in the horror stories.

After whining about a cartoon depiction of her published almost eight years ago, she said, “…And at the end of the day, by staying true to the me I’ve always known, I found that this journey has been incredibly freeing.”

The irony of her list of complaints was underscored by the reaction of a rapper named Tef Poe, who said, “…the truth still remains she is the first lady of the United States of America.” Michelle Obama has become a very wealthy woman who lives like a queen in America–and not everyone, white or black, buys her whining.
