An Odd Occurrence

Posted in Humor, Society on May 20th, 2014

An odd occurrence happened last Saturday night.

A Black male opened fire inside Jib Lanes bowling alley on Parsons Blvd. in Queens last Saturday night. The shooting rampage took place after the gunman was kicked out of the establishment.

The ghetto thug fired five shots at a 36-year-old security guard striking him in the back and thigh and then ran off. His victim was rushed to New York Hospital where he remained in stable condition.
 

Queens Bowling Alley Shooting

 
Please don’t get me wrong; there’s nothing odd about some crazed buck becoming violent when outraged or offended. That’s a common enough occurrence to not be notable. It’s a boringly normal part of male behavior in the “Black Community.”

No, what;s odd is that it was at a bowling alley. C’mon! How weird is that? When was last time you saw or heard of a Black at bowling alley?

Where’s He From?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes it is, but without provenance the value is degraded.

Obama Supporter
Where’s He From?

So I have to wonder where this Obama supporter is from. Nairobi? Kigali? Khartoum? South Side Chicago? Detroit? Oakland?

It’s just an idle curiosity on my part though, as it doesn’t make any real difference. Irrespective of where he’s from, he’ll support Obama and the Democrats and send money to the campaigns of whoever his tribal elders tell him to support. ;-)

But Why Should We Care?

Posted in Society on January 20th, 2014

Once again in America it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It been this way since 1983 when President Reagan signed a bill creating a federal holiday to honor America’s foremost racial activist.

But why should we care? And by “we” I mean the the average American, who happens to be White. The “Black Community” certainly doesn’t particularly revere MLK’s legacy with any consistency.

Truly! If the culture that MLK advocated for doesn’t bother to respect his memory why should we – what the race-baiters call “White America” – bother ourselves to care either? It’s not as if MLK was any friend of ours.

To be fair however, this disrespect by Blacks for their one and only successful and accepted activist isn’t monolithic. Some among them have serious problems with this.

Over the last few years, I have seen Martin Luther King, Jr’s image become a bastardized caricature on different party fliers.

Yes, you know what I am referring to. I am referring to the party fliers that have been seen across Facebook advertising whatever event that is going to take place. And I am afraid to note that this hasn’t been a onetime occurrence. This has happened numerous times for the past few years. And to think, there are people out there that actually feels that this is something appropriate or functionally acceptable.

And trust me, this man is no ally to Whites so it’s not a case of his being some sort of Uncle Tom, Oreo, or whatever else the “Black Community” one of their own race who speaks too well and/or doesn’t side with them against America at large. Doing so, however, would put the normal, White American in a racially charged position.

I suppose that we could take the moral high ground and say that we’re going to respect MLK’s legacy even if, more and more, the Blacks living withing America’s borders don’t.

  1. If we stand by our ethical principles yet ignore the behaviors of the “Black Community,” we’re committing the truly racist act of lowering our expectation of the “Black Community;”
  2. If we call them on this behavior we’re exhibiting both our “White Privilege” and denigrating “Black Culture.”
  3. If we split the difference and ignore those Blacks show no respect for MLK and support and encourage those who do, we’re just once again taking up the White Man’s Burden.

So I acknowledge that it’s 2014′s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day but have to ask should we care and, if so, why?
