In this article by Thomas Sowell at Human Events, he relates some of the great hoaxes of the past but, in his opinion, this is the greatest hoax of the last two generations:
But the biggest hoax of the past two generations is still going strong — namely, the hoax that statistical differences in outcomes for different groups are due to the way other people treat those groups.
Here is the latest outrage to come out of the administration of our first balck Marxist president:
The latest example of this hoax is the joint crusade of the Department of Education and the Department of Justice against schools that discipline black males more often than other students. According to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, this disparity in punishment violates the “promise” of “equity.”
Violates the promise of equity? Really? What promise of equity is that? Well, Dr. Sowell had the same question. He believes that it is nothing more than an attempt to assure the black vote for Barack Obama in November by demonstrating that they are rescuing Blacks from White oppression. Here is one more quote from Dr. Sowell’s article:
Now Secretary Duncan and Attorney General Holder want to play the race card in an election year, at the expense of the education of black students. Make no mistake about it, the black students who go to school to get an education are the main victims of the classroom disrupters whom Duncan and Holder are trying to protect.
Please read the rest of Thomas Sowell’s excellent article. He has a lot to say and as usual he is right on the money with his analysis.
Let’s talk about Barack Obama. In my opinion, two things define Barack Obama. He is a black racist and he is a Marxist. His entire adult life he has associated with black racist and with Marxists.
We know that Mr. Obama spent many years as a “community organizer”. During those years, what did he do to help poor blacks break the bonds of poverty? Did he do anything to teach black that they must take responsibility for the children they spawn? Did he do anything to teach the parents in these communities the importance of keeping their children in school and to make sure they study hard? Did he do anything to improve the schools in those communities and make sure those schools had top quality teachers? Or, did he teach these communities how they could get more milk from the teat of the white man’s government?
What has Barack Obama done to improve the lot of black people since he has been President? He has had hundreds of billions of dollars at his disposal. Did he use any of it to do what he didn’t or couldn’t do as a community organizer? Has he used his position of power in any way to change the culture of poverty in the black communities? The answer is no. I am sorry to say that Barack Obama like so many black leaders see intercity blacks as nothing more than tools for their own use.
I submit that Barack Obama is a politician and a Marxist first and a black racist second.
Okay. Let’s move on and talk about the white man’s role in all of this. Slavery is long gone. Discrimination is nothing like it use to be. Bigotry still exist at some level. Have white people done all they could have or should have to help break the culture of poverty in black communities, or Latino communities or for that matter in poor white communities? If we are honest, I think we have to say that we have not.
So, are blacks right to lay the blame for all their woes on the white man? Of course not. The responsibility for breaking out of the culture of poverty lays with the people themselves, yes, but more importantly with their elected leaders. Until black Mayors and councilmen decide to use their resources to change the culture of poverty, nothing will change. Poverty is much more than a lack of money. It is poverty of the mind that is the real problem. But changing poverty of the mind requires hard work and dedication of purpose. Unfortunately, the vast majority of back leaders find it easier tell their black communities that all their problems are the fault of the white man’s government or the white man’s discrimination.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
