Racism and Hate Crimes: One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

Cue the music while we get ready to play a little game of political Sesame Street

Now, before the music ends, tell me which one of these stories does not belong under the heading REAL HATE CRIMES:

Police: Terrified Man Held at Gunpoint Until He Apologized ‘For All the Things White People Did to Black People’

Prosecutors say a 35-year-old homeless black man held a white man at gunpoint and demanded he apologize “for all the things white people did to black people” in the Seattle area Sunday, August 11.

Missouri NAACP President: Rodeo Clown Committed a ‘Hate Crime’

“I think that a hate crime has occurred,” Mary Ratliff said on KXNT Radio in Las Vegas. “I think a hate crime occurs when you use a person’s race to depict who they are and to make degrading comments, gestures, et cetera, against them.”

Civil rights activists remain silent on Florida school bus beating video

A viral video showing the beating of a 13-year-old white boy by three African-American youths in Florida has left hundreds of thousands of viewers horrified, but critics say the case doesn’t seem to be attracting much sympathy from self-styled civil rights activists.

The Gruesome Story of a Murdered Tennessee Couple You May Have Never Heard – But That You Will Never Forget

Five blacks brutally rape and murder white couple.

OK, time’s up.  Did you guess THIS is the fake hate crime story?

Missouri NAACP President: Rodeo Clown Committed a ‘Hate Crime’

“I think that a hate crime has occurred,” Mary Ratliff said on KXNT Radio in Las Vegas. “I think a hate crime occurs when you use a person’s race to depict who they are and to make degrading comments, gestures, et cetera, against them.”

What color mask should the clown have worn, a “white Obama?”  Wouldn’t that have been a reverse black face, which is deemed racist?

 

Whether people like it or not, Utah was correct about this: some colors are more equal than others.

  1. OK ….. Since all the usual Suspects are Silent…….Don will state the Obvious.

    Until Black Americans start voicing Strong opposition to this kind of Hypocrisy and Racism from the likes of the NAACP and other Groups, they will remain complicit in the NAACPs aactions and Words. During the Civil Rights era……. Millions of whites all over the country joined with Black Leaders.

    At this juncture it would appear most of the Black community is silently of the opinion of Oprah ………… and thus we will remain a Divided nation.

    Now the “Morally indignant”, self-righteous leftist / racist posters that comment here will appear to School us on how only whites can be racist and the usual B—S–T.

    • Don,

      How are all the ‘silent’ blacks any different from the ‘silent’ Muslims? I know this will ruffle feathers, but — IN PRINCIPLE — where is the difference?

    • Don, have you apologized for 9/11 (committed by caucasian men)? How about the horrendous murder of James Byrd? Are you or are you not planning on ever condemning the parties responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing? How about the murder of DJ Alan Berg in Denver? All crimes committed by white people, are you going to remain silent about white involvement in these acts of violence?
      Either speak out, condemn these acts, or you are just as responsible as the perps. Or, this whole “apologize or be blamed” concept is bogus, and only white apologists, on the ropes debate-wise, would ever resort to such craven misdirection.

  2. Im baffled how people refuse to only see these issues from one side.

    Actually…

    I’m not baffled.

    I’ve been reading into the Irish Slave Trade between the 1600s to 1800s lately. That’s white slaves to be exact, if you need help interpreting “Irish Slave Trade”. Yeah, no outrage over that. How many black talking heads reference the roots of slavery in their ancestry? Too many.

    I wonder what the world thinks of whats going on in South Africa. Yeah, I didn’t think so.

    The plethora of post Trayvon Martin, black on white crime? Nope.

    Who exactly want’s to lob grenades in the cribs of a certain race’s children, bomb a certain race’s daycares, and drag a certain race out into the streets, skin them alive, and behead them? I’ll give you a hint: They have connections to Obama, and their acronym spells “NBPP”…like I have mentioned in many other posts.

    Pure hypocrisy.

    I can only see another Civil War happening in the not too distant future. Not that I want it to, but because events have been set in motion and society is fracturing beyond the point of no return. I wouldn’t be surprised if race has a heavy undertone in it either. Even if racism in America isn’t nearly as pandemic as black intellectuals and their white apologetic sympathizers think it is.

    By the way Joe, I’m really enjoying The Oil in Your Lamp!

  3. Thanks for the info. I remember being taught that white ‘indentured servants’ worked for their freedom. I wondered why would a man volunteer for slavery when so many others crossed without resorting to such a bad deal.
    Australia was founded by convicts, in many cases, they were the sons of men who had incurred high debts, and English law allowed the passing of debt from one generation to another. “The Fatal Shore” is a book chronicling the early days of white settlement in Australia, and the accounts of whippings related therein will turn your stomach.
    The fact that others beside Africans were, and are being enslaved does nothing to mitigate the suffering of anyone whose freedom has been denied. What it does is put mankind’s capacity for cruelty and greed on display.
