Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

Right now I am in a state very close to despair. A friend of mine, who happens to be a very intelligent, highly educated, hard working and successful black woman wrote:

Prhofessor Tiffany is thinking we are not too far away from the antics that took
place during the Jim Crow era. Are we going backwards? Stupid bigots, racists,
followers...who are the real extremists?

Really? The only Black person actually harmed at these townhalls so far was a Black man beaten up by union thugs who support Pres. Obama.

The signs calling Obama a NAZI are being carried by supporters of Lyndon LaRouche, a far LEFT wacko who has run for the Democratic nomination to be president the last seven times.

Can you be opposed to Pres. Obama without being a racist?

If we are going backwards in race relations, let me submit to you that it is NOT due to the actions of White people.

The most egregious case of racially motivated voter intimidation during the last presidential election was committed by three Black men brandishing weapons and making racist statements and threats at a polling place. The cases against them were inexplicably dropped when the Obama administration took over the Dept. of Justice.

There is no channel called White entertainment television. There is no magazine called Ivory. There is no White Miss America pageant. There is no National Association for the Advancement of White People. There is no White Congressional caucus. There are no professional organizations dedicated to the advancement of White people.

On college campuses, yes the dorms are being re-segregated. But not by Whites, but by Blacks. The Greek system has now become almost totally segregated. There are Black student unions, but no White student unions. There are schools of Black studies (or African American studies) but no schools of White studies.

In recent years we have elected a Black president and had two Black Secretaries of State. Since 1984 we have crowned at least 7 Black women Miss America. Our sports heroes are largely Black. (Tiger Woods, Le Bron James, Kobe Bryant, Manny Ramirez, Adrian Peterson) The most influential and wealthy television star is Black (Oprah Winfrey) Black stars dominate the radio airwaves. Of the last 8 Best Actor Oscars, three were won by Black men. Halle Berry has recently won an Oscar for Best Actress.

Everywhere you look, White children are emulating Black culture......many successful Black children are attacked for "acting White".

Is racism dead? Of course not. But I submit to you that it's existence today is at least as much the fault of the Black community as it is the White.

In the last election 94% of Black voters voted for Pres. Obama. If 94% of Whites did ANTHING it would be seen as de facto racist behavior. Yet no one attacks Black voters as racist.

In the last election, a higher percentage of Whites voted for Pres. Obama than for any Democratic nominee since Pres. Carter. So why are White people being attacked as racists?

Now for a little history lesson.

Can anyone tell me which political party wrote, supported and enforced the aforementioned Jim Crow laws? Let me give you a hint...Bull Connor and Orval Faubus were NOT Republicans.

Which political party wrote, passed and enforced the 13th , 14th and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution (collectively called the Civil Rights Amendments)?

Which political party led the defence of slavery in the United States?

Which political party was formed primarily in support of abolition?

Which party tells people that the most important thing about them is themselves as individuals not their race, and that anyone can succeed through hard work and determination?

Which party tells people that they are foremost members of an identity group and promotes an ideology of victimology?

Sorry Bro, but all they will hear is "blah, blah, blah, blah, I am a racist white guy, blah, blah, blah"

Had an Hispanic man at work call me a racist because I asked him (as his boss) to stop talking and go back to work.
