With respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
Wokeness – It’s not just a fad; it’s not just some suppuration from the boil that is Millennial culture; it’s not even just a sociopolitical ideology. It’s a theology. It meets all the criteria and has all the material and cultural trapping of one.
Systemic or institutional racism is a powerful and enduring shibboleth among the Blacks and their “woke” “allies.” Herein, is one of many examples of why this is so and why the fabrication of systemic racism is now a lamentable part of the American zeitgeist.
Various non-White journalists, media oversight and accounting organizations. and racial activists regularly lament that Black males make up of only 6.8% of sports reporters, when the NFL, NBA, and WNBA are over 70% Black. And that is how you create systemic racism.
Black males make up approximately 6.5% of the entire US population. Hence, they’re slightly over-represented among sports reporters. However, that same 6.5% of the entire US population, the Black males, is providing over 70% of the players in most national sports leagues.
The issue, if there is one, isn’t a dearth of Black sports reporters; it’s that professional sports is very close to a Black Only industry insofar as the player base is concerned. That’s where there’s the result of racism.
But, instead, it holds value to certain sorts to ignore the vast over-representation of Black males in professional sports in favor of imagining a fabricating an issue with the smaller – nigh perfect representation – of them in sports reporting. So, they scream systemic racism.
The “intersectionality” between the rabid vermin of #BlackLivesMatter and the mostly “White” enablers and Leftist pseudo-anarchists of #CancelCulture cannot be denied, and is a sad question that American patriots are going to be forced to find a final solution for.
In their quest to destroy America’s history, they have forgotten that those who destroy history are doomed to repeat it. And be assured, their attacks upon our monuments are a step towards destroying America’s history, culture, and identity.
Then again, some parts of history might just bear repeating. Lincoln’s bloody-handed experiment has gone on for 155 years and look at what Americans are having to deal with.
Hard to believe, but Abraham Lincoln, often called the Great Emancipator, is now apparently being targeted by some portion of the feral thugs of the #BlackLivesMatter cells. OK, not that hard to believe. He was, after all, allegedly White and, therefore, racist insofar as that sort are concerned.
Sick, twisted, deranged, but not something any American can really be surprised by anymore.
