I keep hearing from the media that we need to have an honest discussion about race...
If so many people want this discussion, why does the media ignore it?
Personally, I feel that Booker T. Washington had it right.
“There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”
“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

Politics and Leadership…
Why is the majority of the Black Community aligned with the Democrats when the Democrats are the historical party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, suppression of civil rights, and the Ku Klux Klan?
Why do Marxist and communist groups overwhelmingly target the Blacks as a potential driver of a class-based revolution? Or are Blacks targeted by the Democrats as a traditional voting bloc?
The Democrats tell Blacks they need to vote Democrat to "fix things," so why are so many Democrat-governed areas, many for decades, in shambles? Did voting Democrat fix things in the inner cities? What did former Democrat President Barack Obama d0 for Blacks?
Has race been monetized in the United States?
Does the political class wish to create a permanent underclass of citizens who require servicing by the political infrastructure and thus are intrinsically linked to the unionized employment of hundreds of thousands of workers in the government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations?
Who speaks for the Black Community? Is it those who purport to be leaders through self-declaration, the volume of media appearances, or those heading tax-exempt organizations? Should those who profit from poor race relations and continue to incite racial difficulties be identified and excoriated for their unhelpful actions?
Are academics driving racial discord by implementing special “studies” programs that start with the assertion that America is evil, America is racist, and other nations are far superior to America?
How can the American justice system be systematically racist if black politicians, high-ranking officials, law enforcement prosecutors, judges, and juries are involved in the process?
Why does the media generalize and assume the majority of the population is responsible for the egregious acts of relatively few individuals?
Are militant Black groups falsely hiding behind the cloak of religion?
Why does the media give a pass to left-biased racist groups and individuals such as the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, and others?
Why does the media give a large microphone and platform to corrupt racists such as Al Sharpton or those who view everything through the prism of race?
Are Blacks deliberately resisting assimilation by affecting language, dress, or behavior which sets them apart from mainstream Americans, and is this being driven by politics?
Is Black Liberation Theology a Marxist concept?
Who is it that, specifically, reduces the Black existence to a state of perpetual and eternal victimhood?’
Why do Black riots appear to happen mostly in Democrat areas?
To what extent are the sons responsible for the debts of their fathers, even though the vast majority of today’s citizens had nothing to do with slavery or other historical wrongs?
Where have the trillions of taxpayer dollars targeted at minority areas gone and why do we still have inner-city cesspools of poverty, illiteracy, disease, and crime?
Are affirmative action and racial preferences another name for reverse discrimination?
To what extent will any monetary assistance to the average Black individual flow into self-sustaining entrepreneurship?
Social norms and behavior…
Why do Blacks tend to self-segregate rather than integrate?
Why do Blacks get a pass when it comes to moral issues such as a man supporting the concept of a nuclear family and being responsible for his progeny?
Was it the government that was responsible for removing Black males from households receiving government assistance?
Why is it that Blacks from outside of the United States prosper disproportionately than those who are citizens born in the United States?
Why is Black underperformance in government jobs acceptable when it is less acceptable in the private sector?
Are Blacks really over-represented in the prison population, and do the Blacks commit a disproportionate amount of crime?
Why are minority gangs allowed to exist and threaten the health and welfare of the community?
Why is law enforcement demonized and relatively few race-related incidents magnified by those who seem to profit from the discord? How do Blacks reconcile the death and destruction in their communities when they refuse to cooperate with law enforcement.
In an era of free speech, why are Blacks able to own the “N” word which has a historical context and use it to enhance criminal penalties?
Why are the words “racist” and “bigot” used as epithetical labels to silence opposition speech and have these words lost their meaning?
Why do “Black Lives Matter,” but saying “All Lives Matter” is considered by some to be disrespectful and racist?
Why the nonsense about “cultural appropriation” since innovation and experience transcend cultural ownership and benefits apply to society as a whole?
Why are any of these questions necessary if Blacks are accepted as individuals and ordinary Americans?
The vast majority of people work with Blacks in government, the military, and the private sector. Can we assume that any racial division is based on identity politics and that the political party most responsible for this form of “divide and conquer” is the Democrat Party?
One last question, how do Blacks feel about mostly white young anarchist suburban individuals from Antifa waltzing into your neighborhood and burning your businesses down while they encourage looting on social media? How do Blacks feel about the media and the politicians who excuse this behavior?
We are so screwed.
