ALL IS NOT LOST

After a series of race riots perpetrated by Blacks after dubious claims of racism justifying such behavior, it would be easy to dismiss the Black community as racists themselves, particularly when the media covers the race baiting of such demagogues as Al Simpleton and Jesse Not Jacksonian. But that would be a mistake. In fact, what many people fail to realize is that although Black voters allow themselves to be continually exploited by one party who promises them much and delivers nothing, the vast majority of Black people share the same values as all other racial groups in society. Black men have served honorably in our armed forces since the civil war; Black people are some of our most religious members of society for those who value such ideals. Although Blacks disproportionally suffer from one parent families more than the national average, Blacks believe in family values as much as any other group of Americans. Nothing is a better example of how the majority of Black people are just as law abiding as any other American race than the response of the members of the slain Black people in Charleston, South Carolina. A sociopathic White racist went into a church and gunned down nine Black parishioners. The families of these victims are better people than I am. I would have given in to anger and a sense of vengeance; instead, they forgave the killer scumbag in open court at his bond hearing. Just as White people, in general, are not racist, it is important to remember that the vast majority of Black people are not racists either. Some day and I hope it’s soon, we will forget race, gender, ethnicity and other divisive influences and just accept people as people, good or bad.

  1. I thought that this was really well said. At the end of the day, we are just people, and we need to remember what we have in common instead of focus on our differences. People who call others racists, who perpetuate this idea of white guilt, who continue to further white supremacist beliefs are radicals and do not represent the majority of the population of either communities. They need to be dismissed as such.
