Black Lies and White Anger
PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/26/2014 4:54:53 AM

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

Calm and very perceptive recap of what is going on--in the present--with just enough background to make it relevant.

A good read for those who (like me) may be feeling overwhelmed by current events.

And the ´poor´ in this Country live like kings compared to the Poor in most Third World Countries!

That was the first thing my son said, upon arrival in Iraq. The United States doesn´t have any poor people! Poor is a family of 6 living in a refrigerator box...

Andrew gets it mostly right, but poverty is not the root cause. Immorality is, which he does touch on in the demise of the family. My father had an 8th grade education and worked for meager wages at a grain elevator. I was earning money, along with my brother and sisters, walking beans at the age of 8 years old and I was in church every Sunday. We did not steal and fight, we worked hard.

Yup, my grandfather, second generation Irish, started out selling newspapers on a street corner. He ended up owning the newspaper.

This is a terrific article with some unusually astute comments afterwards. Sadly, there is one comment in particular that is so nasty, and so genuinely racist, that I do not feel free to post this article on my social network.

FTA: "Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education."

Vague and still misleading.

"... no family structure..." Far too many Blacks have a dysfunctional family structure, a self-destructive mal-adapted know-nothing low-skills culture and an unwillingness to listen to even their own successful brothers and sisters (remember Bill Cosby and ML King, Tom Sowell and Walter Williams).

"...get little education." If you meant "dig", "comprehend" or "value", its true. If you meant they are not taught, shown or given the opportunity to learn, you are dead wrong. Too many American blacks disvalue learning what they derogatorily call "whitey values" in the extreme, even as a betrayal of their so-called black culture or family values.

Little learning beyond MoTown music, basketball/sports and lipstick/clothes are considered interesting or practical. The matriarchal family authority is both disingenuous and destructive to children, mothers and fathers...

The elimination of home economics (for girls) and shop (for boys) has destroyed the tools teachers once had to save more of these at risk kids. The elimination of American History has destroyed any opportunities that once existed to instill societal values that ensure both encouragement and acceptance of and by learners or achievers.

Learning to cut grass and deliver papers is replaced with break and entry and hot wiring cars. Sewing and cooking is replaced with baby pagents and getting laid.

So-called black leaders want them kept leashed, dumb and full of hatred, easily motivated to act-out their anti-white hatreds.

In my view, we are currently in an intended racist cold-war with many of our black inner-city citizens.

Bold and well done.

People aren’t suspicious of young black men in hoodies because people are ignorant or bigoted. They’re suspicious because reason and experience tell them that young black men in hoodies are threatening.

When your experience with black people is only negative, you would be a fool to trust them. Ditto any other group such as rug merchants. A long time ago, a middle-aged white male in his thirties exposed himself to me in a subway. From that day on, I didn´t live in fear of white males in their thirties, but I made sure to sit next to another male in a business suit and tie on the subways. You learn from your experiences and that doesn´t imply racism.

As for poor black people, the narrative keeps them poor and angry and helpless and so destroys their lives.

That is the tragedy: That they bought the narrative that white people, not their own culture and their own race-pimps, are responsible.

When Bill Cosby, Thomas Sowell, and other respectable black men were bold enough to speak to their own people about how to get out of their situation, they were vilified as Uncle Toms.

The path out of poverty lies through free market capitalism, family, education and hard work. It’s the same path for every race and every race can take it. Black people are special only in that they are being kept off the path — kept from even seeing the path — by the Holders and Sharptons and network news teams who benefit from their poverty in all kinds of ways.

I wish I could Vulcan Mind Meld the above quote into the American black cultural psyche so they could see they really do have options if they want to get out of the ghetto. Many have.

It´s obvious to everyone who received an education and has worked all their life how the problem can be solved but it won´t be.
In another hundred, I´ll be dead, blacks will still be the same in America.
As long as the black males aspire to be rappers and live out the lyrics in the rapper songs, hating authority, doing drugs and having sex they will remain the lowest in society. They can´t be helped unless they help themselves and I don´t see that happening. Not now not ever with the likes of Obama and the race pimps.

The damage these race hatred hustlers do is beyond calculation. If you discount personal liability, hard work, and education you will wind up poor and uneducated no matter what you skin color is. The race hustlers convince their victims that all bad things happen due to bigotry and that it is hopeless to strive because bigotry will not let you succeed. Their lies have relegated generations of blacks to poverty.

I wish I´d said that but I´m too chicken to call a spade a spade and I mean that in the sense of telling the true situation but aware of the pun (that´s as gutsy as I get, if a liberal reads that you´re a racist so I add the elaborate explanation . . . I´m not sure it will help). The solution is to reverse LBJ. That is take people off the dole, don´t pay women for having children outside marriage, punish men who abandon their families, and fix the education system in black communities. Fix the education does not mean just dump money on it. If you can´t inspire kids to learn in a particular school system with good teachers then take the kids to a different school system. Yes I mean bussing . . . I hate it but kids who only know the hood are going to become hoodie wearing hoods.

The major problem for blacks is our liberal agenda.
It is not designed to help blacks, but to keep them in their "place".
LBJ sealed their fate with his "Great Society"
Intercity blacks are not expected to ever work. Most of the economy into our black areas comes from the federal government.
Blacks were chosen for this by liberals because, they were already a poor section of our population (partly due to the results of
slavery) and due to their being a different color, could be separated as a franchise group.
They could be given money as a group and kept in poverty as a group so they could vote for more resources and special treatment as a group.
Any group of people that can be separated into a franchise group can fall into the same trap.
The problem is not blacks, but liberal slave owners designing a system to keep them slaves.

All of this is valid and to the good. Even Sharpton briefly touched on this yesterday:
http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=798530

However, remember the purpose here. It is not to politically "beat up" on blacks. It is rather to bring them aboard, so that they may fully enjoy the blessings of America that others have. It is to fulfill the dream of MLK.

We should all re-visit Luke 18:9-14 at this point. Look in the mirror, lower your nose, pull up your sleeves, and reach out your hands. We´re all Americans. Be straight and be tough, but don´t forget the "love" part of "tough love".

Mob Psychology works on the poor and underprivileged. The race baiters know this and the corrupt media encourage it. If Obama truly wanted a legacy, he had one starring him in the face. He could have tried to do something to help the dire situation of young black boys in this country. Instead of spending billions on Solendra and other jerky ideas, he could have planted seeds of inspiration and implemented ways to help black boys to rise up...He could have been a hero and role model to them. But no, Obama is no friend of the black community. He used them to advance himself and the black folk of this country have not benefit one iota from their first black president.

Two points:

1) I cannot relate to people who hate me because of the color of my skin.
2) Blacks seem to be unaware that, with the flood of Hispanics coming into this country, they will be pushed even lower on the socioeconomic scale.

FTA: Black people are natural thugs; black people are given to violence; black people would rather wallow in their state-funded poverty than pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
Which is also nonsense.

The real Reverend Jesse that is Jesse Lee Peterson spoke on this topic last Friday on Hannity´s radio show. He was lecturing the other guest who was also a Black reverend from some church in Atlanta. The main topic was about the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson and it eluded to Rev. Peterson talking about how Blacks angry. He stated that most young Blacks grow up in families with no fathers(welfare being the principle breadwinner) and they are taught at an early age to not trust the police and any type of authority. Then they are lied to by racist victicrats(thanks Larry Elder)like Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakahn and former NAALCP(National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People) Ben Jealous(what an appropriate last name). This is why young Black men like Brown, Trayvon Martin and others get into trouble at school because they are being misled. That has to stop.

My own personal story. I´m the 4th oldest of 12 children, 7 boys and 5 girls. (No catty remarks please). My parents were not fully educated (My mom got the the 8th grade and dad didn´t get that far) but what they did have was a work ethnic and a love of family. We grew up knowing the value of hard work and how important education was. As a result, most of us, not all, made a comfortable life for ourselves and our families. We WORKED HARD FOR IT! We knew full well what that entailed. And believe it or not, I grew up in Arkansas. And I have seen what the liberal policies have done to the black community. When I was growing up, most of the blacks at that time, even being poor like we were, still lived in a family structure. Now they don´t. The breakup of the black family is the main reason that we still have an ongoing race war in the country. And will continue with until someone finds a way to solve it.

And just remember, Pres. Johnson was said to say to some of his "advisors" upon signing the 1965 Civil Rights law that "this is going to guarantee the ni.... vote for the next 200 years". And so far, it´s been true for the past 50yrs.

If poverty causes crime, please explain the Great Depression of 1929 through the 1930´s. When tens of thousands of hobos "rode the rails" looking for work, and had a system of codes on fenceposts for houses that would provide a meal or houses to avoid.

Why wasn´t there more crime then, when families plunged from middle class to homeless almost overnight, there was despair, and suicides, but no great increase in assaults, robbery, or murder. Men felt embarrassed over the inability to provide for his family, but wouldn´t commit a crime.

The LIEberal DemonmRATS don´t want anyone remember--much less teach--accurate history that includes true statistics, such as:

Despite segregation, most towns had a thriving black middle class, with doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and store owners, from the end of the Civil War right up through the beginning of the Great Society.
During the same time, a black woman was less likely to have her first pregnancy begin prior to marriage than a white woman.
During the same time, a black marriage was more likely to last their entire lifetime, and church attendance was higher among black family members than white family members.

It is the Great Society that made men unnecessary, that made drugs and alcohol use easier to excuse, that convinced women that a check from Uncle Sugar was equal to having a mate and his income.

I agree that LBJ and the leftist radicals of the 60s (and similar ideologies of the time) were the greatest enemy of the black community and still are. Yes, the misnamed "Great Society" and "War on Poverty" were the absolute worst things that could have been done to the black community. It was the racist Democrat slave-owner, KKK mentality that knew what the real repercussions would be. Even Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan warned Congress and his party that these programs were backfiring and hurting the blacks worse, but nobody listens (and likely most Democrats knew what would happen and wanted the outcome).

Oops, pushed send too soon.

One more thing...I agree with #20. We should not be condemning people, we should be educating them. We must get the truth out there. It takes each and every one of us to make our voices heard in order to rise above the plethora of leftist lies that are intentionally holding blacks down. People DO need take responsibility for their circumstances...but remember, these people have been brainwashed for generations now to believe that it is not their fault and that they are not in control of their circumstances. We, who have the truth on our side, must break the lies and expose them. Otherwise, these people will be forever condemned to their lower status and poverty and we will have to deal with the crime and other consequences of allowing it to continue.

Many years go as students living in a married students college housing i learned the self defeating fear that kept many blacks from gaining self confidence enough to pull out of the under side.
My 4year old daughter was riding her trike with a black four old little boy on the back when his mother almost fainted trying to tell me it wouldn´t happen again.
I was stunned by that desperate apology.
I told her they were children and there was no insult and also said if she couldn´t allow them to be simply children that would be the insult.
Soon all the children in the housing were playing together without notice of color.
This family stayed in a state of very few black people and after graduation we kept tract of those children. All grew up with good ethics and talents and one daughter became a lovely ballerina with a major troop.
Both races need to defeat that unnecessary self defeating status.

So how can we possibly expect that to happen in a group of people who have a 72% out-of-wedlock birth rate?

#3 gets it completely and then some. I was born and grew up in the heart of the depression. I worked in the fields pulling weeds when I was five years old. Everyone I knew did so and everyone planted most of what they ate, and this was California.

There were Hobo´s living in abandoned buildings, sometimes in the hundreds and we as kids were never afraid of them, and they never bothered us because if they did, the police would come through and empty the camp. As added protection we all had BB guns that our parents bought us to play with.

A friend of mine and I were always thinking of ways to earn money, whether it was selling newspapers on street corners or Look Magazine door to door. Once we built a shack on the highway and sold corn that growers delivered to us and we made good money that we gave to our parents.

I grew up with the first wave of immigrants and they all blended in, worked hard and did well in school. Blacks also blended in because we were all in financial trouble and families supported each other. We had to because the only government program I remember was the WPA.

What we have now is a mess and liberals created it by turning races against each other. In other words they found out they could steal money from producers and give it to others to buy votes. Thanks a lot. You created the atmosphere that now produces race riots, looting, shooting each other, and now you have screwed up the rest of the world.

This isn´t going to end well.

Rest easy, Citizens! Concentrating on the negatives of race instead of the positives, do indeed offer a dismal picture! The upward movement of blacks into successful, normal lives, through higher education, and good family values, continues, anon. Only a few fall through the cracks, and don´t get the education which is offered to them! Look around, and you will see! The race-baiters, Sharpton and all, are certainly the ones who are doing the damage, and keeping the racial pot boiling! Fortunately, they cannot change the innate Human Nature of the black community, whom they attempt, so poorly, to intimidate -- It is Human Nature to want to better ones self,and to succeed, and the blacks are raising themselves up in the millions! Bless them! Don´t be fooled! See the positive! Look around!

INDIANOLA, IOWA — Hillary Clinton is trapped in a bubble. She’s been guarded by the Secret Service since 1993. She hasn’t driven a car since 1996. When she shakes hands with voters _ as she did Sunday in Iowa _ she’s often separated from them by metal barriers. In some ways, Clinton is a prisoner of her own success. The Secret Service protection has been there since she became first lady in 1993, and it will follow her the rest of her life. In other ways, she has fed the sense that she is removed from the lives of everyday Americans, such

A poll released last week had some pretty bad news for congressional Democrats heading into the midterm elections. But buried in the poll numbers was a figure that just might constitute an even more important turning point. Respondents were asked: “On balance, do you feel that Obama’s presidency so far has been more of a success or more of a failure?” More than half, 52%, said “failure.” Only 42% said “success.” And it gets worse. Only 22% were “strongly” convinced Obama is a success, while 39% are strongly convinced he’s a failure. And the American people have pretty much made up

Everybody knows there is no real leader in the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But ask voters an open-ended question — Whom do you want to be the nominee? — and the range of answers can be breathtaking. That´s what I did in an unplanned and totally unscientific way on my Twitter feed Tuesday afternoon. On Monday evening I posted a piece about Mike Huckabee´s preparations for another run for the nomination in 2016. Twitter reaction to Huckabee was almost entirely negative: Nobody, or at least nobody reading my tweets on a Tuesday afternoon, seemed to like the idea

The nightly news shows made it very clear this week that they’ve gotten behind Hillary Clinton’s expected 2016 campaign for president. The network news programs gave Mrs. Clinton’s trip to Iowa the gushing, royal treatment on Sunday, repeating it again on Monday, as she appeared before a throng of cheering Democrats in Iowa, where her party’s first presidential nominating caucuses will be held. The coverage of her speech, which was loaded with empty platitudes and little else that was newsworthy, bordered on the worshipful. That she has the 2016 Democratic nomination virtually sewed up at this juncture tells us everything we need

The more violence that comes out of the Islamic world, the more that the Left insists Islam is a “religion of peace.” The rise of ISIS has inspired Western leaders to redouble their attempts at reeducation. Appointing themselves Islamic authorities, they declare that ISIS is “not Islamic.” These Western leaders are far more protective of Islam than their own historic religion. They are willing to subject Christianity to scrutiny for its supposedly reactionary teachings, even as they hold that the doctrines of Islam are flawless and beyond criticism. At Yale this week, student groups that typically sponsor critics of Christianity denounced the

Allegations that Hillary Clinton allies may have tried to shield the former secretary of State in the wake of the Benghazi terror attack are coming to the forefront ahead of the first public hearing of the special congressional committee probing the attack and its aftermath. Speaking with Fox News, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the select committee, on Tuesday made clear he eventually plans to call former acting CIA director Mike Morell to testify – alleging the former boss “intentionally scrubbed” the so-called talking points that were the basis for the administration’s flawed public narrative about the attack. Gowdy made clear

Obamacare—or at least the version of it that the president and his advisers currently think they can get away with putting into place—has been upending arrangements and reshuffling the deck in the health system since the beginning of the year. That’s when the new insurance rules, subsidies, and optional state Medicaid expansions went into effect. The law’s defenders say the changes that have been set in motion are irreversible, in large part because several million people are now covered by insurance plans sold through the exchanges, and a few million more are enrolled in Medicaid as a result of Obamacare.

No sooner did President Obama’s top general say he’d recommend sending American combat troops to Iraq if we need them to defeat ISIS than the White House tried to walk it back. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey set off a classic inside-the-Beltway storm when he told the Senate Armed Services Committee that if airstrikes against the Islamic State failed to do the trick, “I would go back to the president and make the recommendation that may include the use of US military ground forces.” Excuse us, but what did people expect the chairman of the Joint Chiefs to say? That if the

A little while back, leaving the local “swimming hole” frequented by residents and summer tourists, I noticed a large group of dark-clad visitors sitting in a circle and solemnly keeping what appeared to be a meditative vigil. They had occupied a considerable space where others would normally pass on their way to one of the promontories leading to the river. They were obviously Muslims, probably an extended family, conspicuously observing the traditions of their native culture and, oblivious to their surroundings and the people who had to detour by an arduous route around them, preparing no doubt to face the

The Islamic State´s savagery has been condemned by countless people across the globe — even some members of Al Qaeda. A local commander of Jabhat al-Nusra, a branch of Al Qaeda operating in Syria, appealed to ISIS to release British hostage Alan Henning, 47, because he thought the taxi driver from Manchester truly came to Syria to help suffering Muslims, The Independent reported. The Al Qaeda member reportedly told his then-allies that abducting Henning was "wrong under Islamic law" and "counter-productive." U.S. filmmaker Bilal Abdul Kareem told the British paper that the exchange took place just four days after Henning was taken hostage

Protesters from anti-war group Code Pink stood up during Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday to loudly express opposition to the ongoing aerial campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, repeatedly interrupting senators and panelists and driving Democratic chairman Carl Levin up the wall. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey had just walked into the hearing room when protesters clad in pink and holding anti-war slogans crowded just behind the panel. “No more war!” they chanted, their voices mingling chaotically. Levin allowed the protesters about a minute to vent before the gavel came

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) signaled on Sunday that Congress may hold hearings on the NFL’s handling of domestic abuse in light of the Ray Rice case, if the league does not “police” itself. “If the NFL doesn´t police themselves, then we will be looking more into it. We will -- I wouldn´t be surprised if we have hearings,” she said in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice was fired from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the face in an

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

Cat Stevens - also known as Yusuf Islam - is to perform a series of dates in the US for the first time since 1976. The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

[Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t
