End to a thug life

President John F. Kennedy
George Floyd’s funeral procession in Houston yesterday.*

SUPINE IN A horse-drawn carriage yesterday (no joke!), just like John F. Kennedy and Princess Diana, career criminal and ex-con George Floyd was carried to his final resting place in Houston Memorial Gardens in the suburban hamlet of Pearland.

Lordy, it was glorious. Streets were awash with tears.

Roads were closed to accommodate the millions of mourners. Sleepy Joe Biden, presumed Democrat presidential candidate, met with Floyd’s family Monday night. It is rumored that he entered on his creaky knees.

Race-baiter Al Sharpton, who calls himself a reverend, delivered the eulogy. High-profile guests included U.S. Reps. Sheila Jackson-Lee and Al Green, rap stars Paul Wall and Slim Thug. Floyd, whose rap sheet is long and who once participated in a home invasion during which he threatened a (black) pregnant woman with a pistol, was laid to eternal rest next to his mama who was well-known for her parenting skills.

And the service was streamed live.


Meanwhile, nothing has been heard of the funeral of retired police officer David Dorn, 77, an honorable black man who was shot dead by rioters while trying to protect a business in St. Louis. Same goes for David McAtee, 53, who was slain while serving customers at his restaurant during the riots in Louisville, Kentucky.

And then there is Patrick Underwood, 53, a federal officer killed while standing guard outside a courthouse in Oakland, California. And don’t forget Marvin Francois, 50, a photographer shot dead while documenting the riots in Kansas City.

None was killed by a rogue, white cop, so nobody gives a flip.

Let us not overlook the scores of black men, women and children, many innocent, who are murdered by black thugs every week in dysfunctional ghettos all over the United States. Where are those victims’ horse-drawn carriages?

Where is Al Sharpton?


In closing:

There is no “systemic racism” in the United States. It ended long ago. Black Americans now have more and better opportunities than do blacks anywhere else in the world. If you do not know that, you are a bona fide ignoramus.**

Systemic racism did exist in Nazi Germany against Jews, blacks, gypsies, etc. It existed in apartheid South Africa against blacks. Today it exists in South Africa and Zimbabwe against whites. Individual racism exists in all societies, always has, and always will.

Don’t be an ignoramus.


* Okay, a slight exaggeration.

** From Dictionary.com: ignorant, adjective: lacking in knowledge or training, unlearned.

Good advice for black folks

HERE’S ONE OF my favorite black gals, Candace Owens.

She speaks so clearly that even professors at universities like Vassar, Reed and Brown can easily understand.

If you’re sitting at a green-felt table with your homies and a deck of cards, and the dealer tosses you the famous “Black Card,” fling it back at him, or on the floor, or into that trash can in the corner.

Everyone will be better off.

No black people

ONE OF THE many changes I encountered on moving to Central Mexico was this:  There are no black people.

Nary a one.

After living in the American South for 98 percent of my life, this was very noticeable. I grew up with blacks, literally. For the first six years of my life, I lived on my grandparents’ farm in southwest Georgia. All of my playmates were black, 100%.

When my family moved to Florida when I was 7, however, schools had not been integrated, so I went completely through public schooling with no black kids in sight. They were on the other side of town in their own schools.

“Separate but equal.” Yeah, sure.

But on joining the Air Force in 1962, I immediately entered an integrated world. My barracks roommate was black, and so were some of my friends.

America changed in the following years, and blacks and whites now live and work together though not always in peace, something that is worsening, unfortunately. This I blame on the Democrat Party and famous black hucksters.

I moved over the border, leaving American racial conflict behind me. There are no black Mexicans in my part of the country. I understand there are some Mexican blacks on the Gulf Coast. Caribbean islands are full of black Latinos.

Statistically, Mexico is about 10 percent white and 90 percent brown. The brown 90 percent is split into 60 percent Mestizo and 30 percent indigenous. You often cannot tell Mestizos and indigenous apart. Their clothing can be a clue.

Often the indigenous speak their own language.

When I say there are no blacks in my part of Central Mexico, I mean Mexicans. I do know of two non-Mexican blacks here. One is half of a biracial couple from Washington D.C. who bought a home here for part-time living. The other is a young black American I’ve spotted now and then for years. I do not know her.

On rare occasion, I see a black tourist on the plaza. They invariably appear to be American. Yes, you can tell. But that’s rare. I guess American blacks prefer other vacation spots.

Maybe Cancún or Cabo.

Mostly, I live in a brown world, and I’m fine with that. I even married one, which I heartily recommend.
