Racism, Privilege, and Envy.
You hear a lot from the left-liberal side about something called “white privilege”. It mostly comes from race-baiters, people who like to inject the subject of race into any discussion they can. Some people even have blogs where the main theme is race and racism. Why do they seem so obsessed with race? Sometimes they are people who have hardly ever actually experienced racism themselves, for example a white person living amongst mostly other white people, or a black person living mostly among other black people, or insert any race here. People like this throw the “racist” label around everywhere, especially at those who don’t agree with them. Many liberals tend to call people racists when they want them to keep quiet, because they know most people don’t want to be known as racists – call it an intimidation tactic that often works against weaker people. It was definitely an effective tool for Obama and his supporters during our last presidential election, and it continues to this day. McCain was a weaker person and he simply just buckled under on this issue, but it’s hard to fight someone who without a doubt has the backing of the whole mainstream media on his side. As it turns out Obama is a big joke as president in many ways, but one of the funniest things about him is he only wants to talk with those who agree with him. That will guarantee him a loss in the next election unless he can take complete control and become king-dictator and succeed at completely throwing out our constitution as he wishes.
Many liberals like to tell colored people “look at what white people have done to you. We try to force you to live within our culture. We keep you down. Our justice system is unfair to you and we put you in jail unjustly. Our police beat you for no good reason. We follow you around when you come into our stores to make sure you don’t shoplift anything. We don’t provide you with the education that you need. We continue to segregate you into your own neighborhoods and fill them with liquor stores and give you guns. We allow the inner-cities where many of you live to just deteriorate. We help to give you drugs. Of course these conditions are going to lead to more crime but it’s not your fault – the deck is stacked against you. It’s all a part of ‘white privilege’.”
Of course these liberals see themselves as heroic because they believe they are the only ones willing to be honest, when in actuality they are heavily distorting the facts and much too widely spreading the blame, all at once.
There are colored people who obviously disregard this nonsense and they grow up like anyone else, get an education, go to college, and become successful. Who held them down? If whites are all so evil why didn’t these people end up just like the ones who listen to most liberals? Obviously they just didn’t listen and decided not to use such misleading information as an excuse to not even try to succeed. Some of them did get mistreated by others, sometimes just because of their race, but they didn’t let this prevent them from trying and rising above their circumstances. Others live in an area where they hardly had to deal with racism, or maybe they just didn’t look for it around every corner. Myself I know there’s a lot of evil in this world but that doesn’t mean I have to look for it, or dwell with it. I just choose to rise above it because I know God is on my side and he always triumphs over evil.
Too many liberals like to use terms like “white privilege” or “rich corporate banker or executive” or “rich oilman” because they know for many it will lead to “envy”. There is a reason envy is often mentioned as sinful in the Bible – in fact it is in 2 of the 10 Commandments, namely thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife or goods (property). Why? Because when we start dwelling on what other people have that we don’t it has a tendency to make many humans jealous and angry, and when most liberals pile on with all of the “injustice” of all of these so called “ill gotten gains” that just increases the anger. It’s a perception that they themselves create. When these people are constantly preached to about not taking responsibility for themselves and where they are in life, then it becomes easy to shift the blame elsewhere. Most liberals always strongly encourage the blame to be shifted to the “white conservative male”, and if they can throw the “Christian” label in there as well – bonus.
Why do many liberals make things worse for colored people by treating them like such puppets? One word – “power”. They know if they can fool people into thinking they are the ones who can take care of them then they will have their votes to stay in power. Do they really care about the minorities – obviously not! Our country is supposed to be about our government working for us, not about the government controlling the people and robbing us blind. Most liberals always, always push for more governmental control and ownership, and less individual liberty. They want everything to be collective, not individual, but the thing is their ideas have been (and are still being) tried and they have never worked. The following e-mail we received recently is a good example of why…
A Lesson in Economics – Socialism.
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had once failed an entire class. This class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we’ll have an experiment in this class on socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D!
No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.
