Racism Solved

The UN met recently on the subject of racism, Interestingly enough, the most racially diverse country in the world—the United States—refused to attend the meeting. How ironic is that? One would think that Obama would have leapt at the chance to showcase his ability to cross the racial divide.

The election of Obama was supposed showcase America's new era of tolerance, and be a beacon to the world—or did I misread the memo? The election of a "black" man was to prove to the America and the world that America was not the hate-filled, bigot-ladened country that the world perceives us to be. After all, we had elected a man that only a few decades ago would have been forced to drink from a segregated water fountain, due to the racist policies of Democrats. So after decades of racist Democrat oppression, America elected its lowest of the low—the least common denominator of American culture. America elected a black man…GASP!

So racism in America should officially be over, right? And if Obama's election is truly a beacon for the world, then racism should have ended all over the world, right? The Palestinians were to lay down their arms against Israel, as were other Muslim nations and Iran. Genocide around the world and religious persecution should now become footnotes in history…anecdotes.

Yet we still have Iran threatening to blow up Israel, North Korea threatening their own ethnic brothers down south, genocide in Darfur, and a host of other atrocities. And in America Democrats are still persecuting blacks and liberals going after conservatives with a vengeance!

We not only have increased the racial divide, we have expanded the discussion beyond race. We now have friendship and familial divides. With the election of Obama, there are more people in America today who have lost long-term friendships, than over likely any president in history. I personally lost a friend of 28 years, because he didn't like that I wouldn't support a do-nothing, no talent hack like Obama.

Further, relatives are not speaking to each other over Obama's election. One example is I was recently contacted by acquaintances who said that their daughter-in-law doesn't want them, the grandparents to see her children, because the grandparents did not support Obama. She called her in-laws racists. I have heard many such cases.

To get into the mindset of racism, you have to understand that racism is built on the notion of somebody being better than somebody else. Racism is a form of elitism. My race is better than your race. And racism reaches it tentacles into societal issues, such as rich being better than poor, for example. Elitism.

Most people prefer to be rich. So I ask all poor people, "Do you feel that because somebody is richer than you, they are better than you?" A doctor's job is more prestigious than a janitor's job. I ask all janitors, "Do you believe that doctors are better than you?" Racist Democrats have taught us that whites are supposed to be better than blacks, so I ask all blacks, "Do you think that whites are better than blacks?"

Here's the wrap:

From this black man's perspective, those questions highlight the idiocy of the idea is that in order to celebrate the ascension of Obama, a black man to the highest office in the free world, I must consider myself "lowly" to begin with. Black people were treated badly. That's a cross for racist Democrats to bear. Just because you called me a nigger, doesn't make it so--at least in my mind. Get it?

I have not, nor have I ever been lesser than any man by birthright, regardless of his color. That is not to say that there are not better men than I. There are. But they are better based on their merit, not their ethnicity or their incomes. Racist Democrats tried to indoctrinate me, and many other blacks to believe that white is indeed better than black--a lie believed by many blacks to this day.

Racist Democrats and their ilk all around the world are the reason that racism existed in the past, and continues to exist to this day. They encourage people to consider themselves "lesser"—they encourage stupidity. Black people line up to buy stupidity by the six-pack, and the world buys it in 50-gallon drums.

So I say to the UN, that you can eradicate racism, when you start telling individuals that they are all equally important in the world, and not lowly peons. You should tell countries that they should not feel "lowly" in comparison to the US, but should celebrate what they can become.

Point? There is no real racism in the world; just a lot of people and countries who think small.

Stop racism: Eat a Democrat.

@Dr. Dave - Be sure to have a tetanus shot beforehand!

Lillith2008 said...

Absolutely so true. I too have lost relationships because I do not support BO. To keep peace in some settings I just keep lips sealed. Obama the great unifier...indeed.

John P. said...

I think that the industry of racism in this country, (run by democrats) along with the democrat mind's yearning for collectivism leads them to put people in neat and tidy groups. That's an inherently racist view.

Like MLK said, Only when we look at the content of each person's character as an individual can we move past racism. Democrats just aren't there yet. How they managed to swindle his great words for their "causes" is beyond me.

Individualism and individual rights (the conservative's view and what our founding fathers were trying to do) is the only way to get past this. Democrats argue that the founding fathers promoted Slavery by not abolishing it then, but what I believe is that what they did was lay the groundwork for where we are today even though politically at the time they just weren't allowed.

My guess is there were some racist Democrats in their midst at the time.

As always, great read Kevin. Your radio show kicked butt last night!

The Black Sphere said...

@Lilith - Well you are likely in the majority, when losing friends because of Obama.

The Black Sphere said...

@John P - Thanks for the props on the radio show, and for the blog on racism.

We need all conservatives "pulling the race card" for the next decade, then we can let up on these Dem racists.

Dr. Dave said...

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, Kev.

How am I going to feel good about myself if I'm not helping those who obviously need my help?

Very well written. Thanks for posting!

namaste said...

IMHO, democrats saw an opportunity to garner votes by targeting blacks for a scam-dilicious marketing spin, offering empathy for their plight, and demonizing the opposing party. genius! during that time the majority of blacks were poor and under-educated. it worked, eventually leading to this obamanation nightmare we're living in.

sadly, today under-educated blacks still outnumber the intelligent ones. and under-educated goes arm in arm with low self-worth. obama was elected, among other dishonorable reasons, so that a lot of blacks can feel better about themselves.

nice thought-provoking post, kevin.

Sam said...

You drove the nail home. Great post! Like I've said before...I could care less if someone is white, black, or pink / purple polka-dotted...just so long as they are not ignorant.

Self-Worth should be one word.

Have a good day.

By the by...mini Tea Party in sleepy Graham, NC tomorrow. I'll be taking my hotdog Stretch. He is of German ancestry, but he is American by birth...so he can bark!!!

The Black Sphere said...

@Namaste - Thanks for the comment. Glad to create thought for you.

@Sam - I didn't create the graphic, however it is correct, regardless.

Stretch will likely have a blast, and thanks for the comment and other compliments!

Funny how the members of the UN are better at performing, perpetuating and implementing racism and then they have a conference on racism. I think it was a meeting to promote racism, maybe Chairman Zero declined for this reason.

Achilles said...

It's a shame for all humanity that people are judged by the color of their skin.

And black people are not black, they are brown. Just like white people are not white, they are beige.

The Black Sphere said...

@Achilles - Blame the Dems...they deserve it!

Steve said...

Great job again Kevin. It's also amazing how in denial Democrats are about their own history. As for Obama uniting everyone. I'd have to say there is now more political polarization, partisan hatred and vitriol, and media bias than I can remember in my lifetime. Don't stop telling it like it is brotha. I need my daily dose of the truth in these uncertain times.

The Black Sphere said...

@Steve - I will continue to tell it like it is! Great comment!

Great post. My husband and his best friend are just beginning to communicate again after three weeks of silence. He called my husband a racist while they were eating dinner with several co-workers at a crowded restaurant. This is occurring in the remote outback of Nebraska, by the way. My husband is very proud of the Obama's as Americans and loves the thought of their girls in the White House, but he is not qualified, he hates the country and is motoring us towards socialism at light speed. If you can't deal with that reality, better not to bring up the topic.

spicymeataball said...

It drove me crazy how my high school (mostly the history department) seemed hell-bent on making every white kid feel inherently guilty by showing that all black people need our help. That none of them will ever succeed without our pity and condescension. I went into that school never thinking much about skin color and came out of it with that residual subliminal message from my history teacher going off in my head: look! Those poor people, from the ghetto! At least I know where that message came from...

I can not for the life of me understand what the benefit is of obsessing over the color of your skin and letting everything that happens in your life revolve around that. Why dwell on what other people think or have thought on your group when you can focus on your individual self and, as you put it, "celebrate what" you "can become"? If the first thing you think of when you see a person is their skin color, isn't that the gateway to racism?

Another thing we learned, from our US history teacher, was that the racist Democrats were "actually Republicans". After talking about all the Republican efforts to end slavery, one student was naturally confused (because Republicans are evil, and moreover, like to eat black babies for breakfast) so our teacher resolved the issue by saying "well, in those days, the republican and democrats' values were basically switched. so Lincoln would be a democrat now."

Larry Walker Jr said...

I deal with Obama supporters every day, and even work closely with one. Whenever the topic of politics comes up we generally agree on one thing, that is that politicians on both sides of the two-party system are morons.

I don't have a problem getting along with people from all races and ethnic backgrounds. The only folks I have a problem with are those faceless, nameless, Obamabots who personally attack conservatives out of ignorance. Ignorance in that they have stereotyped all conservatives as Bush supporting Republicans who are mostly racists and who just hate Obama.

I am not a Bush supporter (he's no longer President anyway), I do not profess to be a Republican, I am not a racist (one of the few Black conservatives left), and I do not hate Obama.

Whether Obama was White, Black, or any other race, I would be saying the same thing: that he's not a natural born citizen and thus ineligible under Article II, Section 1, and that he is incompetent as a politician. He might be a great person, but AKA Obama II does not deserve to be POTUS.

Julie said...

OK, let me count the ways. I am half Swedish, I watched Pelle the Conqueror, the Danes treated me in a racist way. Off with their heads. What else.... Oh, I am a middle child. You all know what damage that did. Off with their heads. Plus I am the eldest female child, forced to take care of all my siblings and do all the housework, racism at its highest. Off with their heads. Then I have being female. Lower wages, lack of promotions, sexual innuendo's, Oh my, how did I make it to over a half a century. But the king, Obama won't fight for us all at the UN. Gee, racism again. Help me Kevin, Help me. Did I mention I am built for comfort and not speed, more racism against us poor fat people. Where's the change?

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Good post!!!!! :)

The Black Sphere said...

@Anon - Amazing how Obama supporters are supposed to be so understanding!

The Black Sphere said...

@spicymeatballs - Amazing that "teachers" are rewriting history! I suggest auditing kids' classes.

The Black Sphere said...

@larry - It's philosophical. If Dems had not had the high road in racism, wrongly, the Republicans could have gotten their agenda through. We agree that black or white, Obama is a joke.

The Black Sphere said...

@Julie - Too funny...built for comfort. Priceless.

The Black Sphere said...

@Amanda - Thanks for the compliment!

nancy said...

Racism has been almost since the beginning of time, soon after Adam and Eve were created. There has been racism towards every race that exist. It will never end, all each of us can do is not to be one ourselves and meet God in good conscience.
To tell the truth I feel that all the people who voted for Obama because he is black are racist against whites. Now when I see black people I think "do they hate me because I am white?" I have been all over the world, been friends with people of varied nationalities and color and know there is good and bad in every race. I can be friends with anyone, but will they be friendly back?

The Black Sphere said...

@nancy - Blacks who voted for Obama on race are indeed racist. They need to be called such!

madmath1 said...

Did anyone take a look at who did attend. BO didn't go because he thinks we need to be put in our place being a predominately white country (though, not for much longer). So Iran, Syria, Jordon, Egypt and Saudi Arbia are going to combat racism. I thought it was a sick joke. The Arab Muslims are the most racist people on the planet and the stupid convention ended when the Iranian leader started spewing his anti-israel BS. Not that they're against the BS, but because they hate Persians. Yea, that was productive just like everything else the UN does. I like to see that stupid, impotent, corrupt organization dissovled. At least kick them out and send them to Mecca and see what real racism is.

Sorry Kevin that your support for what is right cost you your friendship. However, if this "friend" is willing to disfellowship you for your lack of support of BO, then who's the real racist here? MLK said that he dreamed of a day that people would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the charater of their soul. Now, I, a white Christian, Hetrosexual male said that is a crime in some places (like Detroit). Who's judging who by their skin color and by the charater of their soul? Too bad now that BO has been elected, his dream is as far from fruitation as it has since the Civil War.

As for history teacher's changing history to fit their perverted view of history white washing the Democrat's history of racism, not surprising. Having taught for a year, racism is something that our public schools are too proficient at educating (drugs and sex would be the other 2). How often do racist find a way to rationalized what they know is wrong. Now they have to make the evil Republicans look like themselves with their revisionism. Since children aren't taught to think, it's heartening to know there's a child out there with enough brains to actually question some of the obvious contradictions that are being exposed. More than what the media is capable of and they're supposely college educated.

Keep up the good fight, Kevin. If it wasn't for people like you, people like us would have no place to go to express ourselves and strengthen our resolve against these stupid, sick, ignorant people that support evil but don't realize they have a monster inside them all the while making us out to be the monsters. All Evil needs to proliferate (just look at the UN) is for good people to do nothing.

The Black Sphere said...

@madmath1 - Will keep the fight going my friend!

Nancy said...

Both my parents are staunch Democrats, support Obama and hated (and still do) President Bush. I love both my parents, however it can get very tense around them. My dad has a bad temper and when I say anything negative about the Democratic party the fight is on. I cannot understand how they raised me as a Christian but support those who do not hold our beliefs. There have been many times I do not want to visit them and did not talk to my mom for a few weeks after the election.

The Black Sphere said...

@Nancy - Then point them to this blog! There is little hope for some, but little by little you can educate them. Give them morsels not whole meals!

Lillith2008 said...

It saddens me to read how this election has divided family and friends. I do not understand why the Dems still have so much anger when they "won". We are forbidden from saying anything negative opinion of the one yet they ridiculed, and loudly voiced their opposition to Bush (and still do). I just don't get it.

The Black Sphere said...

@lilith - Let me explain it...Dems are dimwit racists. The only opinion that matters is THEIRS! They can say what they want about Bush, but turnabout is not fair play!

emptysuit said...

This is hitting hard, very true, I had too many arguments with friends over Obama last year, we don't talk about politics anymore, I refuse to let Obama destroy things I value. We were wrapped in the 'first black man' blanket we forgot that life goes on reguardless of who's in office. Nothing has changed and nothing will change.

The Black Sphere said...

@emptysuit - Like I said, Obama is a polarizer. Black racists and white meddlists were determined to get a black man elected, despite his lack of citizenship and qualification. Get this: To make up for THEIR racist views!

Moogie P said...

I'm really happy to have found you via a link at "Where's the Change."

You have done what I believed to be impossible: open an honest dialog about race.

I'm blown away and will be checking on you and your thought-provoking words often.

The Black Sphere said...

@Moogie P - Thanks for the comment, and for the future visits. If I many, I suggest you read a bit of "day old bread"...old blogs. I think you will get a real understanding of the mission.

Also, be sure to tell others, and check out our video site, www.youtube.com/theblacksphere01, our magazine, www.openzine.com/theblacksphere, and our radio show, see graphic on left side of blog.

Thanks again!

Scott Hedrick said...

After this post I am strongly inclined to buy your book. We *are*, more or less, created equal- what we do after that changes things. The fatal flaw in liberal thinking is that we *stay* equal, in spite of the ample evidence to the contrary. The fact that our actions dictate how we become unequal almost entirely explains disparity of income and opportunity. Welfare, except in rare cases, is a penalty on the achievers for the bad choices of underachievers.

I'm waiting for someone to call Janeane Garafalo a no-talent hack to her face and have her agree that her position in life is entire due to good fortune and not due to any effort on her part. If she truly believe the liberal twaddle she pushes, she *must* agree.

Anonymous said...

Kevin and others,

Amen. I hope this is not a stupid question: Do you think Obama is really pulling the strings here? He doesn't seem to be operating on all four cylinders.He doesn't appear to be bright at all. In fact,he and his wife act like they are from the hood.He tries and I mean tries to be cool. I think we have a man with the mind of a child here who is playing president. I can say this because I am a black woman. I know who I am and what I have been blessed with. I thank God for that! If he is a puppet,then who is really pulling the strings here? I think it's racist because they won't let a "black" man be president.His family background is troubling to me. His mother was an atheist and he went to a muslim school in Indonesia, there really was no relationship with his father.There's something sinister about all of this. Am I crazy for asking you this?

The Black Sphere said...

@mizsandy - Yes, I do think Obama is pulling the strings, but he is "asking for input." He and his entire staff are "flying blind," and they will continue this course until something devastating interrupts them. They believe they have a mandate, which of course they do not!

Anonymous said...

MizSandy,

the libs will call you names for noticing this stuff but--

Obama won't talk about several years of his life. He visited Pakistan in the early '80s when Americans couldn't get in there. He was undoubtedly using his Indonesian passport, as a citizen of that country. And it undoubtedly said his last name was Soetero, his most recent stepfather.

His Muslim school records in Indonesia list his religion as Muslim.

His mother wasn't just atheist, she was devoted communist, and one of her beaus was frank Marshall Davis, a black communist well known for wacko writings.

I believe the birth certificate and college records and all that are not appearing because too many of them say "soetero" on them and perhaps they say he's citizen of Indonesia.

I'm sure he was born in hawaii, but there's other things in that paperwork he cannot allow us to see.

And since almost every government and educational bureaucracy is staffed with pure liberals, NOBODY is ever going to leak or sneak these documents into the public.

SO we just grind our teeth and wait.

But don't think you're crazy. You're just doing the job the liberal media USED to do.

Big Dave

Paul Stanner said...

Dear Kevin :

What an excellent article.Kudos to you sir. You hit the nail right smack dab on the head.

I lost a friend in FINLAND because I was white and wouldn't support the worthless piece of human flotsam ergo I MUST be a racist. Oh yeah and let's not forget homophobic, misogynist , mean spirited and money grubbing.

It's amazing what useful idiots people choose to be.

The Black Sphere said...

@Paul - Thanks for the compliment. Personally, I find friends like those not real friends, and frankly...ignorant. Who needs them! I don't expect to agree on everything, but when somebody like Obama makes you question my friendship, I just find that "friend" worthless.

Maggie said...

I am a white middle class Australian woman. I am not a WASP because I am a Catholic. I understand very much what bigotry means because I have faced it in the past - during my school years. I have no time for that kind of thing.

I have friends in Sydney who think that it is a good thing that Obama has been elected. However, I think that they drank the Kool Aid, because they are thinking in terms of skin. They think he is intelligent but the only reason that they think along those lines happens to be that they believe the press lies about him.

On the other hand, I have been reading widely, and I have not been reading much of what is written by the MSM. I do not like what I read. Yet, there has to be another reason that I do not like Obama that is not related to skin colour. It is his demeanor I do not like it. There is something about his face, and his eyes that makes my skin crawl.

The colour of a person's skin is not the most important thing, since we are all the same underneath the skin. What makes a person is the way that they behave in public. Amongst the things that put me totally off Obama are his tantrums when he does not get his own way, and that is not all. I have seen those photos of Michelle with that really angry surly look on her face. It is ugly, and it mirrors her soul. That is not a nice thing to say, I am aware of that, but for some people, there is an ability to see people in a spiritual way - and when it happens it can make one's skin crawl (which has happened when dealing with a white man).

Last year I dealt with a black woman over the internet. This woman is from Chicago. Her photo makes her look cheeky. However, I soon learned that there was something else lurking. It could be that living in Chicago or near Chicago means that she has a lot of excess baggage including an exaggerated view of herself as a victim (bigotry). This woman is a professional architect, yet she was angry and all because she is black.
Yes it is true that women have felt the full force of discrimination. I went through it when I tried to get work upon graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce. The best excuse has to be that being a woman I would not stay in the job for a long time - even though the men move from job to job more often. I was even question about my (lack of) boyfriends. So yes I have been there and done that. In lots of ways it made me weaker, but I had other baggage in my background as well.

Seeing oneself as a victim is the worst possible situation. Yet, your Democrats thrive on ensuring that blacks, Hispanics and yes even homosexuals see themselves as victims. This is the way that they get and keep power.

I really do love reading your blog Kevin.

The Black Sphere said...

@Maggie - Thanks for supporting my blog with your readership! I have many Aussie friends, and can't wait to do a book signing over there!

Your assessment of blacks in America is correct, but we are trying to change that.

Lone Ranger said...

I think there's a basic misunderstanding here. Obama's presidency isn't a beacon to the world, it's bacon to the world. Thus, all the pork barrel spending.

I'm sorry. I truly am.

I'll go now.

The Black Sphere said...

@Lone Ranger - Funny comment!

carder said...

All I can say, Kevin, is that I truly enjoy reading your blog, and if you can get more exposure regarding your perspective, (which is sorely needed), then it's only a matter of time before we can shatter the victimization myth.

Are you booked for the 4th of July?

Anonymous said...

Maggie,
I have seen that spiritually in Obama and his wife,Michelle. The eyes are the mirror to the soul. There is a book that I see in the bookstore called The Audacity of Hope, and his eyes look evil. I mean that! They tend to follow you and it freaked me out.I wanted to deface the book and draw sunglasses on the cover.I probably would have been arrested. He is not worth going to jail for that. At least I can dream, can I? That book I think did not speak kindly of Obama. Michelle still looks angry and he acts like child to me.She is not a pretty woman because of the anger I sense she is carrying. It shows up on the outside. What is in the heart comes out,as the Word of God says.I see it in both of them. The elevator is not all there folks. Liberals make my skin crawl. They are stupid and hateful!

@carder - I appreciate the comment. I am supposed to speak at the STL Tea Party, but that is not confirmed. Let me know what you have in mind.

madmath1 said...

Anon, if you thought the cover made BO look evil and make your skin crawl, you should read what's inside. It will eliminate all doubt. I had a hard time differentiating between BO's book and Mein Kaupf (other than Mein Kaupt was translated). I wonder how long til I'm arrested for that comparison. BO is an evil, racist, stupid jacka$$ (which explain's the democrat's mascot). Judging by the division being created all around the world, friendships being destoryed, this man is far more destructive than I thought.

Chip Head said...

Kevin, I am sorry about you losing a long time friend over politics/Obama. I too have lost a few due to politics. The funny thing is, I was reared to not discuss religion or politics with others. It was these others that started the discussion. All I did was not allow myself to be rolled. Oh, well, maybe folks I should not be friends with anyhow.

Regarding the U.S. not going to the U.N. racism summit; when I read that months ago, right after the inauguration, I was stupefied. I thought The Cool One was into talking with those of opposing opinions. Of course, now we (conservatives) know different.

Anonymous said...

Kevin,
I remember you answering the question of Obama calling the shots but as I scrolled down I saw a picture of him as a DUMMY and Emmanuel was whispering to him like Edgar Bergman, the ventriloquist, and his dummy. I forgot the dummy's name but when he was alive,I enjoyed the act. So what did that picture mean? I am a slow learner. I still don't think he's a great orator and he tries to walk cool.I just hate that walk of his. He is not all that and a bag of chips! Love to tie those shoe strings of his and see what happens. I am sooooooo mean!!!!!

I'm on the Orlando Tea Party organizing team, and your voice of freedom for all Americans would be a welcome rant at our venue.

And I'll be up front and say we have no money to compensate. Just throwing out an excuse for you to come down to Florida :0)

The Black Sphere said...

@carder - I am touted to do the STL Tea Party, though not officially confirmed. I would love to have an excuse to get to Orlando, however if I have to leave my locale, my PR person would definitely charge you! I appreciate the invite however. Perhaps a book signing soon?

Keep me posted about the book.

M.L. Bushman/Jigsaw Press said...

One thing everyone seems to forget is how much money is made by those who "champion the cause of racism."

They don't go about championing an "end to racism." They champion the cause. Every time the slightest issue that can be termed "racist" is brought out by the national media, you have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others stepping in to renew their brand names, thus enabling them to increase their speaking fees and/or sell more books. This is simple marketing101.

The only way to truly end racism is to take the money out of it.

The Black Sphere said...

@carder - The book is OUT! I hope you get one, and get the Tea Party to promote it in Orlando, which would give me a reason to visit!

The Black Sphere said...

@M.L. GREAT comment and perspective! Problem is, their "cause" is completely opposite. It was racist Democrats who were the "cause," not Republicans!

M.L. Bushman/Jigsaw Press said...

Thank you, Kevin. And you're right.

I just wish everyone in the world would aspire to effect that most important part of Martin Luther King Junior's dream when he said we should judge a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

I was young then, but I've remembered this always and tried to put it to practice. If the majority of us did the same, and taught our children to do the same, there would be no more money in racism, and racism itself would cease to be an issue. Without the smokescreen of the racism issue obscuring the content of character, we the People might better choose our leaders in future.

Love your blog, Kevin. Keep up the good work!
