Equality Of Hate

Posted in Society on June 27th, 2015

One thing about hate in modern America, it’s very much based upon bias, bigotry, and prejudice. Far be it from most people living within America’s borders to accept an equality of hate.

If one is hate, both are hateHate – Separate But Equal

America’s domestic enemies, the Liberals and their minority sharecroppers, loath the Flag of the Confederacy and claim it’s a symbol of hate and nothing more. However, they have no issues with the raised Black fist war banner of the Black Power movement. Indeed, it has proven impossible to convince them that if one flag is about hate, then both of them are so.

As Should Be Expected…

Posted in Politics, Society on June 26th, 2015

South Carolina State FlagAs should be expected, I’m weighing in upon the killing of 9 Blacks and wounding of another in Charleston, SC’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church – often called by Blacks, “Mother Emanuel” – by Dylann Roof. As should also be expected by any and all who are familiar with me or Reflections From A Murky Pond, my take on the matter will follow the mainstream.

This is simply because something like Dylann Roof’s assault upon “Mother Emanuel” should have been expected to happen. Decades of law after law being enacted to demand preferential treatment for people having a “Protected Trait”; years and years of the Lamestream Media promulgating the thought that all Whites are both racists and somehow debtors to the “Black Community”; and the constant excuses made for the innumerable Blacks who riots and loot whenever they feel like guaranteed some sort of reprisal-based action would be committed by someone in America sometime. Obama’s and his boy, Holder’s consistent exacerbation of these things just accelerated things and brought the timeline forward.

Does this mean that I approve of- or condone Dylann Roof’s actions? No. In my opinion they were stupid and counterproductive. He killed 9 people for no good purpose and accomplished nothing by doing so that aids America in protecting herself.

Does this mean that I excuse his actions? No. I do understand his motivation and I do see a growing problem that is very much akin to the problem that Roof perceived. Yet, like all things, understanding does not necessarily provide excuse, since failure is failure and sinking into rage is rarely, if ever, excusable.

That Shit Be Black!

Posted in Society on June 16th, 2015

Most reasoning people in America have to shake their heads in bafflement whenever a celebrity, especially and actor or actress, feels both the need to- and that it is their place to weigh in on serious issues.

A quite interesting example of this phenomenon is the recent video from Amandla Stenberg, Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows, in which the 16 year-old actress lambasts certain form of “cultural appropriation” by Whites.

Don’t Cash Crop On My Cornrows

Young Ms. Stemberg’s dissertation on the percieved evils of Whites adopting bits and pieces of Black Culture was eloquent and respectful, delivered with restraint and a voice carrying the compelling emotion that one would expect from a professional performer. Yet, at the end of the day, however, all Stenberg is really saying is, “Step off, Whitey! That shit be Black.” This is an interestingly hypocritical position for a light-skinned – possibly, if not probably, lightened-skinned – young female who obviously spends considerable time, effort, and money achieving “Good Hair,” i.e., White Hair, to be taking and espousing.

Of course, with Amandla Stenberg being a Light Girl, she may feel a lot of pressure to speak so in order to prove that she’s “Black Enough.” Hence, we should give her the hand-out of tolerance.

Yet, possibly inadvertently, Stenberg brought up one of the underlying problems that America is forced to with when confronting the problem of the Blacks within our borders. The “Black Community” are not and do not want to be Americans in a way shape or form except for legalistically and then only when it benefits them without impinging upon their deep-seated need to both other than- and antithetical to normative American society.

Generationally speaking, this behavior of the “Black Community” is recent but it is accelerating along predictable lines and with an equally predictable ending. Truly, it goes no further back than the end of segregation and with each removal of the physical separation of Blacks from the rest of America Black Culture has responded by being more exilic and more outre.

Ironically, the “Black Community,” coping with the end of segregation, wants and demands to be separate but equal. Sadly, the separateness is based upon cultural norms that are willfully at odds with those of America as whole.

Thus we arrive at Ms. Stenberg’s video. It’s simply a product of the “Black Community” striving to be a different and separate from normative American culture as possible in the wake of there being no barrier to their assimilation – social, societal, and psychological immigration really, for they are foreigners – into America as a whole.
