Yes, that really is Detroit and not some beleaguered shithole in Haiti or in Sub-Saharan Africa. It’s a sad fact that some Third World problems are also First World problems.
A simple thought on the absurdity plaguing us today:
We have reached the ultimate stage of absurdity when White people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while Blacks are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?— jonolan
FYI this, much like my thoughts on disappointment and pride was a correction of Ben Shapiro’s words, is a correction and clarification of Thomas Sowell’s. I’m not as bound by political correctness and a speak more freely, bluntly, and accurately than he can.
It seems that The View’s Joy Behar isn’t shy about claiming that SCOTUS justice Clarence Thomas and Senator Tim Scott aren’t really Black because they aren’t avowed victims of “Systemic Racism” and constantly claiming that they are so.
“He’s one of these guys who, you know, he’s like Clarence Thomas,” Behar said. “Black Republican who believes in pulling yourself by your bootstraps, rather than, to me, understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country, and other minorities. He doesn’t get it. Neither does Clarence. And that’s why they’re Republicans.”— Joy Behar
In her opinion two Black Men, one born at the beginning of the the Civil Rights Movement and one born nearer it’s end and just a year after the Civil Right Act was created, don’t understand racism. Two Black men raised in broken homes and poverty in the South apparently can’t understand what Blacks go through because the real racism and disadvantaged upbringings these men faced didn’t hold them back.
Yes, I know. It’s not normally correct to respond to- or particularly care about what the bints on The View jabber, hoot, and/or holler. Their entire shtick is being ignorant, stupid, and grossly offensive to Americans in general. However, this is one of those times when one of them, Behar in this case, can be used as a bellweather for the core dogma of the Left and their minority tenants.
This is their identification of the Blacks. Irrespective of race or upbringing, they will not believe a Black is truly a Black unless they paint themselves as a victim deserving of reparations from America. Some can’t even recognize one, mistaking them for- and castigating them because they’re obviously White.

A real issue with those Blacks who identify as “African-American” is the punctuation involved. The hyphen is wrong and should be used. The grammatical/logical symbol that should be separating “African” from “American” is â†® the symbol for contradiction or an XOR value choice. This is especially true because the etymological root of “contradiction” is the Latin contradico, â€œspeak against.â€
The sad fact of it is that they’re either Black/African or they’re American. At best, and that best is vanishingly rare, it’s a sliding scale between being part of their people or part ours. They can’t be both because Blacks – those acknowledged by their own people as being Black Enough and not an American, e.g., those derided as being Oreos and/or Uncle Toms/ Aunt Jemimas – hate America and her people. And, you can’t be a true member of a people and/or nation while holding it to be utterly evil, loathsome, and the existential enemy of “your people.”

The sad story of Blacks inside of America’s borders is the story of their chronic failure. It’s been the primary narrative of their people since the Civil Rights Movement succeeded in breaking down the barriers between the Black Community and America at large. And, as time progresses, it just seems to get worse, even as more of those of African tribal descent emigrate away from the ghetto and the miseries of the “Black Community.”
It’s especially saddening and maddening right now. The Blacks’ response to Minneapolis PD officer, Derek Chauvin’s killing of George Floyd is the horrific current nadir of Chronic Black Failure. They literally snatched defeat out of jaws of victory! The Blacks, in yet another paroxysm of their feral rage, threw away the best shot at general acceptance and some measure of real change in policing policies.
It was a clear cut case and the majority of Americans were, at a bare minimum, sympathetic the Blacks’ cause. Even I was on their side initially. Hellfire! Even the Minneapolis PD was on their side, immediately firing all four officers on the scene and arresting Chauvin on homicide charges.
Maybe the Blacks could have “won” if they’d only rioted, looted, and burned in Minneapolis. Americans probably would have understood that and accepted it. But no, instead Blacks all across the nation rose up all across the nation and began rioting, looting, burning, and murdering police officers and others.
Feral rage, the Blacks’ chronic failure, will be the death knell of them and their aspirations sooner or later. That’s truly sad.
