As I watch white politicians, white political pundits and white television commentators twist in the wind as they are shouted down with nonsense by aggressive “Black Lives Matter activists”, some part of me feels a bit amused that this raggy taggy, discombobulated group with their incoherent demands painting themselves as victims of some modern day invisible “Jim Crow” movement have managed to tickle the underbelly of guilt and helplessness of the obviously uncomfortable White targets.
It’s a pretty interesting “con” job, and it is working…… on some people.
It really does not matter to these “race activists” that far more Black people kill Black people each year and continue to do so in alarming numbers. It does not matter to them that many times more Black people kill and assault White people than the other way around… each year…. I does not matter that in some cities there are more Black babies murdered while in the womb than are allowed to be born. It does not matter that less than 30 percent of Black children grow up in a household in which there exists a mother and father…. The bottom line they want you to know is that it ain’t their fault at the end of the day because YOU made them do it.
NOOOO….. these statistics do not matter one bit to the “race hustle” For those who don’t understand the meaning of a “hustle”, it simply means a fraud or swindle. This hustle involves getting people of the “Caucasian persuasion” to believe that they are the problem for everything that befalls the Black race. You know, “DA white man made me wear my pants below my hiney”, “DA white man made me quit school and sell drugs so drugs need to be legal”, “DA white man made me rob DA store so I really should not be incarcerated”, “DA white man deserves to be punished since I am DA VICTIM and should never be held responsible for my actions.”
Watching the interviewers from CNN turn red and uncomfortable, even with beads of sweat collecting on their upper lips and in the moon shaped arcs under their arms…..Bernie Sanders and Jeb Bush ran off the stage practically screaming “I’m sorry for being White!!!!” and Hillary Clinton counter with her own hustle and flow makes me realize that the major flaw in the American society is that we” self segregate”…. maybe Ii should clarify —- the rest of the world “segregates”, while, quite frankly I enjoy friends of all races, colors, religions and eccentricities. When I am with tall people I feel taller, Jewish friends I feel more Jewish and have to remember that I am Catholic and so on… but I digress…..
But this integration that I like is not the case with most Americans, especially those of the “Caucasian persuasion”. I was once with a group of people from work and they seemed to be curious about me. So when I looked up from my Jack Daniels and soda, I stared into 7 sets of questioning eyes. Having been made wise to this situation by a very sharp Granny, I asked “what’s up?”… Next question Are you from the South? Yep, WAYYYY down south, south of Kingston town”…… I answered…. ” How many brothers and sisters? …About 5 or 6″ I answered then the “money” shot “How many are in jail?” To which I answered none, but one just finished law school, one is in medical school, one is an officer in the Air Force, another studying engineering …. should I go on I asked?” And then I started on my cousins and other successful family members…… I think Mitzy began to feel faint.
To the stunned faces, I realized that stereotypical images are all my colleagues , Mitzy, Biff, Cliff, Tiff and Griff ever knew of Black people,…..movies, rap music coming outta Compton, and chronic incarceration for one “fiddle faddle” reason or another , always the fault of DA Man. I think Biff asked me could I make my car “jump” and I had to correct him with the statement that the Mercedes is set up different from the “Chebby” Impala and besides Jamaica is nowhere near Chula Vista or Tijuana and NO I don’t lite spliffs.
This isolation makes it possible for the “Black Live Matter” hustle to continue unchecked as they spew their nonsensical “round robin” speeches about not being responsible for anything and victims of everything. They bully and exact promises and concessions based upon their aggressive disruptions thereby rendering any calm discussion of the VERY real problems which beset the Black community null and void and unchecked yet another day.
Booker T. Washington on Black Victimhood
“There is another class of coloured 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.”
And the race hustlers are back in business because it was always considered “the long con” since this hustle has been around for a very long time.
