Slavery in the United States ended 1.5 centuries ago, but the blowback continues in that America is now multicultural as far as blacks and whites are concerned. The two-race nation has been a problem since slave days. First, it was one sort of problem, primarily for blacks. Now, it’s a larger problem that affects everybody.
A multicultural society will always be a problem. It will always give you grief.
Right now the PC people are having hissy fits about failure to indict that unfortunate policeman, all of which is centered on race. The PC people (Barry’s fans) say it’s so unjust, and cops are so bad.
Here are the facts:
Of all police arrests, no matter the race, 99.9 percent do not end in a fatality.
In the past half century, the rate of blacks killed by cops has plummeted 79 percent.
There are 43 million blacks in the United States. In 2012 (latest stats), 123 were killed by police. Also in 2012, 326 whites were shot to death by police. In 2013, blacks committed 5,375 murders. Whites committed 4,396. Whites are 63 percent of the population, and blacks are just 13 percent.
In 90 percent of those black murders, the dead person is another black or the offender himself.
So, clearly, the problem is not cops killing “innocent” blacks. The problem is the black underclass, the collapse of the black family (which was far more stable a century ago; did you know that?), the sky-high illegitimacy rate of blacks, and hand-wringing of guilt-ridden white collectivists and its far-reaching cultural effects.
But the root problem is multiculturalism. Different races, religions, languages do not live comfortably together, especially when one group has the upper hand, as will almost always be the case. Monocultural societies are far more peaceful. Mexico, Kenya, Ecuador, Sweden, etc., rarely have racial conflicts.
Neither do Japan, China, Poland, Russia, Chile and so on. Those nations do not actively embrace the 1960s, Kumbaya, hippie notion that people with stark differences can live under the same roof in peace.
They neither “celebrate diversity” nor “embrace multiculturalism.”
They embrace their unique national characters instead.
When such conflicts erupt in Africa, they are tribal, not racial, issues, beautifully illustrating my point. It’s not always about race. It can be about culture, religion, tribes. Multiculturalism leads to trouble. Encouraging multiculturalism leads to worse trouble. Yet America, including the White House, continues to do it, big-time.
Expect more violence.
And more silly theatrics by ignorant football players as Al Sharpton grows richer by the day.
“THE OBAMA ERA is over.” So opined one of the collectivist mouthpieces Tuesday night on the basement-rated Bolshevik television network called MSNBC.
I was somewhat surprised at the election results. I was not as optimistic as many on our — the clearer thinking — side of the political spectrum. I mean, after Barry was re-elected against all common sense in 2012, who would have thought the American voter would come to his senses? Not me.
Here’s my prediction for the two years left in Barry’s term: The Republicans will try to legislatively set the national ship back on a straight course … and Barry will veto it, repeatedly. Simultaneously, Barry (wonderfully dubbed “The Precious” by a wag on Breitbart News) will attempt to further his left-wing dreams by edict.
International visits to other nations by the president will mostly end.* What would be the point? There will be an exception to this. Queen Michelle and the little princesses will continue taxpayer-funded vacations.
And the Queen will still accept all invites to fawning talk shows and celebrity parties. However, I imagine those invitations will be coming far less often than before, don’t you?
Upshots: Hillary (Barry in panties) now has the proverbial ice cube’s chance in Hell of being the next president. The NDP* has some serious and rapid thinking to do.
This morning, Ben Carson, an actual black dude, officially changed his party affiliation from Independent to Republican. Obviously, he has a presidential campaign in mind. I hope so.
Carson quote: “I believe in reasonable sized government. I believe in personal responsibility. I believe in individual freedom. And I believe in creating an environment to let free markets grow our economy. And all of that is very consistent with being a Republican.” Amen, brother.
I like Carson, but there will be other contenders to replace The Precious. Time will tell. For now, let us celebrate.
Oh yes, almost forgot, Mia Love will become the first black Republican woman in the House of Representatives. You see, contrary to what the NDP endlessly drills into your noggins, Republicans have nothing against blacks. We just prefer the sharp ones, those who are not race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Pastor Jeremiah Wright.**
