No, it’s not racist that I am tired of listening to individuals exploiting their color for power, position, prestige, profits.
The iconic broadcaster Rush Limbaugh was criticized for referring to Barack Obama as the “Magic Negro.” Like much of what Rush said, there was a truth to be discovered. For those unfamiliar with the term “Magic Negro,” it is a term of art used in books and movies.
The Magical Negro is a trope in cinema, television, and literature: the character is typically, but not always, "in some way outwardly or inwardly disabled, either by discrimination, disability or social constraint". The Negro is often a janitor or prisoner. The character often has no past but simply appears one day to help the white protagonist.
In March 2007, American critic David Ehrenstein used the title "Obama the 'Magic Negro'" for an editorial he wrote for the Los Angeles Times, in which he described Barack Obama's image in white American culture:
He's there to assuage white 'guilt' (i.e., the "minimal discomfort" they feel) over the role of slavery and racial segregation in American history, while replacing stereotypes of a dangerous, highly sexualized black man with a benign figure for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest ... The only mud that momentarily stuck was criticism (white and black alike) concerning Obama's alleged 'inauthenticity', as compared to such sterling examples of "genuine" blackness as Al Sharpton and Snoop Dogg. ... Obama's fame right now has little to do with his political record ... Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn't project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him. <Source>
[OCS: If Al Sharpton, a race-baiting extortionist, and Snoop Dogg, a dope-smoking thug turned celebrity, are examples of “authentic blacks,” what does that say about those in the black community who are patriotic, hardworking individuals who embrace family values, church, and community?
As for Obama, he is little more than an articulate trained communist revolutionary with a benign façade that belies his true nature, a Marxist grifter who enjoys the finer things in life and who lives life away from the black community; returning from time-to-time to burnish his black credentials.
As for white guilt, that is mostly a construct of white liberal women who seek meaning and a sense of belonging in a cause – along with their feminized male counterparts. For most grifters, racial strife is a necessity, much as a carpenter needs a hammer to earn his living.
And no matter how you slice and dice the statistics, black crime is disproportionately represented in our community and giving criminals a pass to destroy our communities is un-American, period.]
A false history…
1619 Project Creator: I Don’t ‘Understand This Idea That Parents Should Decide What’s Being Taught’ in School
The creator of The New York Times’ 1619 Project said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday she doesn’t understand the argument “that parents should decide what’s being taught” to their children in school.
The 1619 Project was created by Nikole Hannah-Jones, a writer for The New York Times, and it promotes the idea that America’s “true founding” occurred when slaves arrived in the Colonies, framing the history of the country around race and slavery. <Source>
[OCS: An example of your typical educated race-baiter and grifter, a malevolent radical blacks demonizing convention as they proceed to tear down existing society.]
Nikole Hannah-Jones Calls Opposition To Critical Race Theory, 1619 Project ‘Dangerous’
[MSNBC host Joy] Reid agreed, citing the “national security threat of white nationalism.” She asked Hannah-Jones what she thought about merging critical race theory – which she claimed has “nothing to do with K – 12 education” – with the 1619 Project as a way of “vilifying” her work and spreading a “dangerous narrative.”
Hannah-Jones claimed that many teachers have not even heard of critical race theory, saying that people are afraid of narratives that challenge “power.”
“That’s what we’re seeing, is a need to hold on to and maintain that power and divide that social movement toward justice by making white Americans, at least a segment of them who will be susceptible to this message believe, no, actually you’re under attack,” Hannah-Jones said. “They’re trying to take your history. They’ve gone too far.” <Source>
[OCS: A classic case of progressive communist democrat projection, reporting their actual behavior as an act of their opposition. The truth is that the 1619 Project is re-writing history and contains numerous falsehoods and fallacies.]
Some black individuals recognize the truth…
It’s Time For Black Americans To Embrace A Post-Racial America
We are bombarded with messages claiming America is overflowing with systemic racism and white supremacists. Even the National Council on Family Relations now labels the traditional two-parent family an extension of white privilege. If you listen exclusively to the news media, the entertainment industry, and the academic-industrial complex, you will be surprised to learn this truth: This is the least racist period in the history of our country.
To be clear, we do have racist people in our country that do bad things to people, but the country is not systemically racist. To put it another way: If you look for racism in this country, you’ll find it. If you look for opportunities, you will find them 100 times over.
For far too long, we have watched our black communities destroyed from within. As a community, we are worse off now than we were before the Civil Rights Era. We have it within our power to move forward and begin a transition of healing and growth that is long overdue. And we do not need government help or funds to accomplish this transformation.
We are missing out on opportunities in this country to which we are fully entitled as American citizens, opportunities that seem to be clearly visible to nearly everyone except native-born black Americans. Many of us are blinded by tears of anger, mistrust, and misunderstanding that lead to decisions that are not in our own best interests.
Today, black American citizens who have legally immigrated from the Caribbean Islands and African countries like Nigeria earn significantly higher incomes than native-born black Americans. They achieve higher levels of education. They are living the American dream civil rights leaders desired for us. Many of these new citizens came to the country with intact families, which helped with their achievement and integration. Another reason for their success is they have not been indoctrinated by years of anti-white, anti-American, and anti-capitalist hatred.
Now, to all Americans: Our shared history transcends political parties, race, religion, and class. It is a shared humanity that binds us together like the intertwined roots and branches of trees in a dense forest. Organized groups are igniting forest fires to divide and destroy our unique American culture. It’s imperative that we not only extinguish their efforts, but foster a new movement that nurtures, unites, and strengthens us as Americans, regardless of race, for generations to come. <Source>
So, I say to those racist, radical, Marxist, incompetent black grifters, get on a plane to any country where you find acceptance, better treatment, access to government benefits, and people to listen and believe your bullshit.
Folks, vote competence over color, patriotism over disaffection and disloyalty.
We are so screwed.
