There is one more painful lesson coming out of Ferguson. It is the great racial divide. Events like this separate people with white skin from people with black skin. Groups that normally work together and have cordial relationships are not talking to each other this week. And when they do talk to each other, they don’t mention this event. It is the great national silent treatment.
We (whites) can’t understand their point of view and they (blacks) can’t understand ours. My guess is that Asians and Hispanics get to sit this one out.
I know some black people and we can normally talk about all sorts of things (this being an integrated Army). In most ways, they are just like me. Two parent family, middle class, working stiffs. They care about their kids and take them to church (black church). But when it comes right down to it, no matter how conservative they are, they still voted for Obama… twice. They still take the side of the black kid who was shot and not the side of the police officer who acted in self defense. So, we have nothing to talk about. If a race war comes, I know with certainty that I cannot count on them to help defend civilization against barbarity.
Obviously, there are some exceptions. 95% voting for Obama means 5% did not.
Here, the Washington Redskins (racist anti-native American bastards) are being supportive of the black guy. A guy who has no connection to them other than the color of his skin. They are taking sides with the criminal instead of with the police officer who defended himself against a potentially fatal beating by a 300 pound violent sociopath. Same shit as Trayvon Martin. Stupid people using this as a poster boy for how America is raciss and hates black people. And not a word about how black people hate each other even more. 6 black people killed in Chicago this weekend. The Attorney General is not going there to take charge of the situation. The President of the USA is not saying, “if I had a son…”.
The race activists are continuing to beat the narrative that brings in their paychecks and gives their lives meaning, since they produce nothing. The sheep continue to mass in the streets because mass protests ALWAYS work. “Bringing Attention” to your cause ALWAYS works… even when you don’t really have a cause. And the mass bulk of the criminal classes are standing by to collect free stuff from other people’s stores while the police are paralyzed into inactivity for fear that a news camera will show they going all Rodney King on some poor unarmed black child (a 300 pound 18 year old child who threw a brick at a police officer and smashed his face).
So, if you invest any of your own money in a neighborhood with over 25% black population, you are a damned fool. I hope you are charging your customers a high enough gouge to cover your inevitable losses.
For the record, this saddens me greatly. I seek peace and understanding between all men. My beef with the Moslems is a direct result of their total absolute unwillingness to let others live in peace. More and more I see the black community is America behaving the same way. I already know that there is nothing I can say or do that will convince any of the black people who are on this train to get off it and go on with their lives. I can foresee that this will increase the possibility of bringing them into conflict with me some day. I am ready for that day. And it will be a day of great sadness for me. It doesn’t have to happen. If black people don’t condemn black crime, they force white people to do it. If black people choose to stand with criminals against civilized behavior, then they will all be lost together.
