The Race Card

I heard possibly the stupidest thing to come out of Hurricane Katrina yesterday. It should be no surprise that it came from "Democracy Now" which has been playing the race card since last week. I do have to hand it to that show. They are big proponents of free speech and they want to give everyone a voice. I can appreciate the fact that they will let me decide what is truth and what is crap. The only problem is that a lot of what they put on the air is as one-sided as the crap you might see on Fox.

Yesterday they had a black activist who proclaimed that the evacuation of New Orleans was nothing more than a conspiracy by rich white folk to empty New Orleans of poor black folk so that the city could be rebuilt with casinos and expensive condominiums. *blinks* Also, by sending small groups of poor black folk all over the country the blacks will have no power and will be helpless to the white majority. *blinks*

Unfortunately there was no response by a sane white person to these ridiculous allegations. Could it possibly be that small groups are being sent to many locations so as to not overwhelm a single city like Houston? Nah. That makes no sense! Could it be that there is talk of abandoning large sections of New Orleans not due so much to the fact that they are poor and black but that they are 20+ feet below sea level and will very likely flood again? That's just crazy talk! It's all about whitey keeping the black folk down! I've heard Shrubya called a racist for the federal government's response (or lack thereof). I don't think it's racism as much as just an overall incompetence. It doesn't matter if your white or black. He has no concept of poor people, period.

I wish black activists would just STFU. They're doing more harm than good. Average white guy, like myself, will develop very negative stereotypes because you are inadvertently admitting that current stereotypes are valid. By saying that poverty is caused by whitey not giving you opportunities, you are saying that all black people are poor. By saying that the reason there is a majority of black people in prison because whitey just loves to put black people in jail, you are really saying that crime is mainly caused by blacks. And when someone like Bill Cosby gets up and makes sense by saying that it all comes down to self-responsibility not skin color and you put him down because he is not part of the blame whitey camp, you're making everything you say seem hollow and self-serving.
