Conservative Views and Discussions

Who Are The Directors of Racism?

with one comment

Imagine if Newt Gingrich said, “You can’t vote for healthcare and call yourself a white man.”  Take a moment to think about how the lame street media would trash him.  There is no doubt that Gingrich would be labeled a racist…aptly so.  In would come the civil rights groups calling for his head along with apologies and public service requirements.  There would probably senatorial hearings!

Now imagine if Rev. Jesse Jackson said, “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”  What do you think would happen?  Would the lame street media trash him?  Would the state run media even cover the comments?  Would there be gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands?  Would Jackson be labeled a racist?  Would there be senatorial hearings?  The answer is an overwhelming “NO”!  Absolutely nothing would be said.  And, this is exactly what Jackson said during a recent Congressional Black Caucus Foundation meeting commemorating the 25th anniversary of his run for president.

It seems to me that this type of rhetoric further perpetuates racial strain by simply associating skin color with “absolutism”.

  1. The time has past for our society to be completely colorblind.

    The injection of race into discussions for which it is not directly relevant is usually meant to stifle discussion and debate on the real issues at hand. Not only that but it fosters resentment which is counterproductive.
