THE WAY WE HANDLE RACE IN THIS COUNTRY…

Image

We will never solve racism in this country moving in the direction we are moving in.  Once you get victim status everybody agrees that anybody that says anything unpleasant to you, even if it is true is a bad person.  We let one group beat up on another group as payback.  I remember when I was a kid some black leader said something very important, I wish I could remember his name but more importantly I remember his words.

“there is no such thing as reverse discrimination, it is just regular old prejudice.”

What I am about to say is a logical fallacy that I believe I am the first person to point out.  There is the general, the specific, and the personal.  If something happens to me it is personal.  If something happens to my friend it is specific, and if something happens in general that is the general rule.  When people make judgments, when they talk, when they behave strategically to make the world a better place they forget this one simple rule.  I am not white people, I did not take your land, I do not have millions of dollars from my plantation, I didn’t own slaves, I didn’t prevent women from getting the vote, I didn’t kill off the native Americans, and I refuse to be punished for it or apologize for being a strong white man.

Here is another interesting question, based on the same logic, if I can be blamed for the crimes of my ancestors and my sex, how come I never get praised for things that white people and men have done that are good?  Thank you for inventing science!  Thank  you for inventing civil rights!  Thank you for civilization and chivalry!  Thank you for television and the internet!  How come that never happens?

Conflationary thinking is prejudice.  Thinking you can make the world a better place by singling out a person based on color or sex and attack them, blame them, scapegoat them and that will right some wrong you perceive is stupid and if you think that you are an idiot and too stupid to detect your own bullshit.  You don’t change the way you treat your friends or acquaintances because of some event that has nothing to do with either of you.

The way that you change the general rule for the positive is you succeed in your relationships and you return good for good and you don’t let things going on in the world influence the way you are in relationship with your friends.  The only thing that matters is what I do to you, how I treat you.  You don’t know why I did what I did to someone else or why I said what I said to someone else, you only know how I treat you.  What has transpired between us. Image

It has become normal for people to apologize for their race or for their sex with their behavior.  But you are feeding into a logical fallacy.  You are participating with the validity of stupidity from the mind of a moron.  We are enforcing this pleasantness of speech so that we can’t talk about the real issues.  One groups opinion and experiences are wrong because it comes from them, they are wrong for having it and they aren’t allowed to voice it.  As long as we can’t speak freely on the subject there will be no enduring solution.  Cornel West speaks about parr hesia, speaking your truth boldly, prophetically.

The solution is reason, a system that is prejudiced towards reason and knows how to recognize it.  Stop rewarding prejudice, stupidity, butthurt, entitlements, people that feel like victims (histrionic personalities) and start rewarding people for being reasonable and correct.

Racism, Prejudice, and Stupidity

Image

 

This dumb, ugly, bitch at the hot tub that looked like what would happen if a possum successfully mated with Ann Coulter’s corpse reminded me how stupid this world is getting.  I have lived at this apartment complex for 5 going on six years and I know the people that live here.  So this thing floating around in my hot tub like an albino turd that won’t flush decides that she is going to be the ambassador of good will to the apartment hot tub.  She starts offering information about herself that nobody asked for making appeals to her own authority.  She manages to tell everyone she is a teacher.  Who cares?  She is trying to impress this Persian family who has a vendetta against white people that she doesn’t know about, this family and the other Persians and Arabs gossip about and call the security on people that they don’t like, people wearing cowboy hats and drinking beer, more specifically white men and chicks that put out.  That is right, the Persians are the self appointed cock-blockers of the hot tub. 

So this dumb bitch, says, “I love black people, don’t you all just love black people?”  Now the reason this pisses me off is it has become a shibboleth, a tautology for saying, “I am a good person.” The Persians nod their heads vigorously, the woman even says in her deep mannish tenor, “oh, yes, we love black people.”  Which is patently not true, unless the sentence finished in her head and went like this, “Oh, yes, we love black people to pick up our garbage.”  of something to that effect.  

So, Ann Coulter’s doppelganger turns to me as I am sitting in a chair dangling my feet in the water and writing in my notebook for my blog and says, “Do you love black people?”  and I respond, “I don’t love people based on their skin color”.  Which i feel is an intelligent and correct response.  This bitch has the audacity to say to me, “Oh, yeah, you are prejudiced.”  

WTF?
