This is strong—
“A man who doesnt respect himself wastes his breath demanding that others respect him.
We dont respect ourselves right now. If we did, we wouldnt call each other the N-word. If we did, we wouldnt let people with prison values define who we are in music and videos. If we did, we wouldnt call black women bitches and hos and abandon them when they have our babies.”
If those girls at Rutgers would like to see something good from all this, they should start shouting the above quote from the rooftops.
The unintended consequence of Jackson and Sharpton’s demagoguery on this will be seen next season at every away game this team plays. I hope they issue ear plugs to their players for all away games, because for 2 hours they are going to be subjected to being called “Nappy Headed Ho’s”. Good luck.
Good Lord. Whitlock’s two for two this week.
How exactly is a guy who popularized the term “white interloper” heading a racial justice cause, prominent speaker for the Democrats, and has a radio show?
Yep, and they are building a high wall and digging a deep moat around it. The language, music, social mores and victimhood inculcated from the crib are defined as 'this is how WE do it' or 'It's a black thing, you wouldn't understand'. They create an inclusivity that may feel comforting and empowering but that has as its flip side an exclusion from the productive mainstream.
Furthermore, they have not realized that the race game in America has changed, it is no longer black & white.
Since the uber-liberal RFK opened the doors to non-Western immigration the playing field has started to fill with people who have zero racial connection to the slave and Jim Crow days.
A second generation American from India, Korea, China, Nicaragua, Russia, etc. has no cultural memory knowledge of the history and couldn't care less. All they know is that their parents broke their butts to give them a shot and they are going to make the most of it. They are not going to look for or accept excuses for black American failings in education, commerce, academia, science, etc, and the same group's destructive life-style choices. They will just see a non-accomplishing sub-culture from whom they themselves can derive no benefit. And, it is these 'new' Americans who are already starting to move into positions of power in nearly every area of American culture.
The world turns and it has moved past the day when the sun shines on the old scructure. The new structure is emerging into the light of day. Those who fail to see this and adjust face further, perhaps culturally terminal isolation.
Why do black people need “leaders” to “speak” for them?
Who’s the white “leader?” What about leaders for brown, yellow and red people?
Leaders for black people is condescending and racist, inferring that black individuals are too stupid to speak or think for themselves and need “leaders” to do so.
Next time a white liberal tells me a black “leader” says this or that, I’m calling him a racist.
Whitlock has been surprising me. I didn’t used to like him much because he always ragged on my beloved Indianapolis Colts. However, ever since he wrote a very powerful article on the thug circus that surrounded the NBA All Star game in Vegas, he seems to be very focused and spot on. Preach on, Brother Jason!
Excellent article! Thanks for posting it.
Racemongers teach blacks to hate everything white. The result is the wholesale rejection of all positive values that are associated with whites.
Hate always ends up destroying those who mire themselves in it.
And, in this case, their children.
But that's the First Principle of modern liberal-Left thinking. ;)
