I was born in the United States and raised both in the U.S. and in several foreign countries, because my father was in the United States Air Force.
As a toddler, we had a black maid named Ruth. She was like my second mother. I loved her like a mother.
As a young man, I once dated a very pretty black girl.
As a young man, I sometimes preferred to be with my black friends than with my white friends.
I am not, in any way, prejudiced against any race, creed or religion. I judge people by the way they ARE, not by what color their skin is or what deity they worship. It is the person that matters. Got that?
Okay. So, now I am going to tell you the God’s honest truth, and it will offend only those who are racists in their hearts. It will not offend those people who take a few minutes to reflect on what I write below and can see it is, indeed, the truth.
Blacks have been complaining about slavery as long as I can remember. They even blame white people who had nothing whatsoever to do with slavery. They blame white people solely because they are white. Is that NOT racist? For instance, my ancestors weren’t in this country until the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, so we didn’t have a damn thing to do with slavery. With that said, why do blacks blame me for the slavery their ancestors endured? Good question. The answer is racism.
Here is the truth I mentioned above:
In a morbid sort of way, blacks should be grateful to the slave traders for bringing their ancestors here from Africa. They should not be pleased with the way their ancestors were sold, beaten and murdered, however. Just that their ancestors were brought here.
If their ancestors had NOT been brought here, the descendants of those blacks would have never left Africa, and all their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren would have been born in Africa. They would NOT be citizens of the United States. If they CAME here, they would be immigrants, but not NATIVE U.S. citizens.
As African citizens who never left Africa, they would be anywhere from ignorant savages half naked, holding a grass shield in one hand, a wooden spear in the other hand, jumping up and down in the dirt, and, probably, starving and suffering hunger, disease, genocide, civil wars, AIDS, or they might have developed into more educated African natives who, for instance, work to protect animals in sanctuaries, or in some African government position. BUT—they would NOT be U.S. citizens.
They are U.S. citizens SOLELY because slave traders brought their ancestors here, admittedly, against their will.
So—in a morbid sense, blacks in this country should be grateful their ancestors WERE brought here. Instead of filling their hearts with hatred, calling for the slaughter of white people, blaming whites for all their troubles, they should be damn grateful they are not in the same position all the Africans are on the African continent.
Perhaps blacks in this country (the U.S.) have overlooked or prefer to ignore the great strides white Americans have gone to in order to give the blacks a more equal opportunity in life than their ancestors had as recently as the 1960’s.
We whites have tried so earnestly to give blacks opportunities that now white people are being reverse discriminated. A qualified, hard working white student often has to give up their rightful place in an institute of higher learning, because there has to be a certain ratio of blacks enrolled as set forth by law. Is not THAT reverse discrimination?
We allow blacks to have opportunities and ‘things’ us white people cannot have without being accused of being racists. For example, if whites had a United Caucasian College Fund, it would be accused as being racist. But no one is protesting the existence of the United Negro College Fund.
If Caucasians had a National Association for the Advancement of White People, it would be accused of being racist, but blacks have their NAACP. No one is protesting that.
Blacks have their Black Chamber of Commerce, and so do Hispanics, but whites don’t have a Caucasian Chamber of Commerce.
Blacks and Hispanics have many things we whites cannot have without being accused of being racists.
Then, what is the worst thing blacks are allowed to do is stand on street corners and scream for the extermination of white people. Now, do you think a white person could could stand on a street corner and scream for the extermination of black people and not be put in jail, assaulted, murdered, sued? Hell, no!
So, blacks, to be brutally honest, I am tired of hearing your damn whining! How many whites do you see rioting? How many whites do you see running around in mobs and stealing, shoplifting, assaulting innocent people/innocent black people?
How many whites do you see murdering people by the scores in big cities like Chicago?
Don’t give me any of that bull defecation about, “Oh, gee, but we can’t get a job, so we take our frustrations out on you crackers.”
Perhaps if you would stop dropping out of school, having babies even before you are 16, stop killing each other daily, perhaps—if you kept in mind: you will be paid for what you know, so put as much knowledge in your heads as you can, you can rise up out of your ghettos and really make something of yourselves, you MIGHT actually make something of yourselves.
Act like ignorant, violent, hateful mobs and that is how you will be treated, and that is why whites fear the presence of blacks, because of the hatred, the violence, the rapes, murders, thefts, and so on and so on.
You were born in a civilized country, and you have it a million times better than your ancestors in Africa, so instead of growing up to be worthless blobs of bone and flesh, take ADVANTAGE of the opportunities you have as a U.S. citizen that the people in Africa DO NOT have.
MAKE something of yourselves. The opportunities are THERE! Put down that damn cheap firearm and MAKE something of yourselves. BE a U.S. citizen—not an ignorant savage.
The opportunities are there for you. If you wind up being worthless criminals you have NO one to blame but yourselves.
There. The truth. Whether you like the truth or not, it still remains the truth.
Now go out there and get an education. Go out there and change the opinion so many people have of Black Americans. Show the world you are an American citizen and proud to be one. Don’t go out there and act like some hateful, ignorant, violent jungle savage. There are no jungles here. If you think your neighborhood is a jungle, YOU made it that way, and you can FIX it—if you care to fix it.
