Is there a more intellectually vacuous venture than obsessing over skin color?

Roland Martin is a sad case, so hooked on racializing everything as if skin color is the most important thing about everyone, even Santa Claus

Via CNS News:

“News One Now” host Roland Martin said Friday on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” that Fox News’ Megyn Kelly’s remark that Santa Claus and Jesus are white reinforced to black and Hispanic kids that they live in a “white world,” and they don’t matter.

“Doesn’t it just reinforce though to your point growing up as a child, you seeing these images, it reinforces where for black kids and Hispanic kids, it’s, ‘Look, accept that this is a white, white world and you don’t matter,’” Martin asked Slate writer Aisha Harris, author of the article, “Santa Should Not Be a White Man Anymore.”

Kelly did a segment about Harris’ Slate article, which challenged the notion of Santa being white. Harris wrote about growing up with images of a black Santa on Christmas decorations at home while the public celebrated a white Santa.

Roland you silly bastard,  if you were not suffering from Racial Obsession Syndrome (ROS) it might dawn on you that if racist victim mongers like you would leave kids alone, and stop filling their heads with your divisive venom, they would look at Santa, and just enjoy being a kid at Christmas. Certainly I pity you Roland that you were obviously victimized by race baiters as a child. Sad that you have grown up continuing to see your race as the most important thing about you. Get the fuck over yourself and your pigmentation Roland. For the love of God, stop making skin color something it is not, important. Character Roland, THAT matters. Integrity, THAT matters! Skin color? that DOES NOT matter! And guess what Roland, you know what the saddest thing is? If you read this you would call me racist for saying that skin color is unimportant. You would do so because you have been conditioned by Leftism to do so. Again, it is tragic that you are just not bright enough to see through the lies the left has told you.

By the way Roland, I should point out that Santa Claus is based on Saint Nicholas who was WHITE! Not that that matters. Because in my world, I can admire people regardless of skin color, it is sad that you cannot. It must be a very dark, ugly world where you live, I pray that you get over your obsession with skin color one day. You would likely be a nice man were you to see people as something other than skin color.

 

 

Here comes Santa Claus

I am going with my sister and brother-in-law to take the world’s best niece to see Santa, who yes IS White, at Bass Pro shops today, and later we are taking her to a cool park with thousands of Christmas lights, so blogging will be light today.

I might also be forced to check out the gun selection at Bass Pro, and see if they have any good deals on ammo, I mean as long as I am there.

Thugs’ family angry that armed citizen shot their thug relative

News flash, if you do not attempt an armed robbery, including holding a gun to a store employee’s head, you likely will not get shot

The family of a suspect who was shot by an armed customer while attempting to rob a Family Dollar store in Mobile, Alabama earlier this month told Fox 10 that the Good Samaritan should not have gotten involved and “just left the store.”

It was Tuesday, Nov. 12, when the armed citizen, whose identity has not been revealed, noticed 18-year-old Adric White wearing a mask and pointing a gun at employees towards the front of the store.

“He had the gun to his head. He had him on his knees,” the man said. “I drew my gun on him and I said ‘Hey, don’t move.’ At that point he swung around and before he had a chance to aim the gun at me, I fired.”

The man added, “It was just instinct. It happened so quickly. I didn’t want to shoot him, but when I saw him swing around so fast I didn’t want to get shot either.”

White was shot five times and transported to a local hospital where he is recovering and remains in police custody.

Seems pretty cut and dry right? Not to the thugs’ family though, who would be happier if the innocent store employee had been killed

Authorities maintain that the Good Samaritan was justified in shooting White and that he broke no laws when he did so. But White’s family disagrees.

“If his (the Good Samaritan) life was not in danger, if no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him — what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” one relative told the Fox affiliate during a phone interview. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”

My God are these people truly this morally retarded? Their “beloved” DID point  his gun at the armed citizen, that is why he was shot. Good grief! I understand them being upset, but why are they upset at someone who defended himself AND the store employee? Why not at the relative who committed such a violent act?

 

Donald Douglas: OH the Humanities!

At LAT, “Cal State’s ethnic studies programs falter in changing times“:

In the 1960s, California college campuses were hotbeds of civil rights and free speech activity, where student protests resulted in the nation’s first ethnic studies programs at San Francisco State and UC Berkeley, among others.

Ethnic studies became a sought-after major and a safe setting in which to examine the influence of the state’s diverse population of Latinos, African-Americans, whites and Asians, among others.

In recent years, however, some of those programs have been cut back, particularly in the California State University system. Today, students — and faculty — are once again protesting: this time to save ethnic studies majors.

At such campuses as San Jose, Stanislaus, Bakersfield, Long Beach and elsewhere, professors aren’t being replaced, classes are being reduced and majors could be eliminated or subsumed into other liberal arts programs. The moves have reignited old debates — and wounds —- about Cal State’s commitment to social and cultural diversity.

Educators and others say that as campuses look to trim costs, ethnic studies programs are bearing the brunt and could be seen as irrelevant.

Administrators counter that many programs are not attracting enough students to fill classes.

The programs also face stiff competition as students of all ethnicities focus more on obtaining degrees with immediate job prospects.

“A discipline like ethnic studies lays itself wide open to the critiques of what the hell do you do with this, can you run a corporation or fly a plane with this?,” said Ron Scapp, president of the National Assn. for Ethnic Studies, which is conducting a national survey on the status of such programs.

But Scapp and others said that debates over immigration, the election of the country’s first black president and the aftermath of the shooting death of black teenager Trayvon Martin by a white man show the nation is still grappling with issues of race and cultural diversity. Ethnic studies programs, he said, offer a forum to tackle these topics.

The initial intent of the programs was to increase the numbers of students and professors of color and expand historical perspectives, including those of Native Americans, women, gays and lesbians.

But it was also divisive, with some critics arguing that the disciplines lacked academic rigor. In 2010, Arizona banned school districts from offering ethnic studies programs determined to be radical or fostering racial resentment.

A recent move to reduce the status of the Africana Studies Department at Cal State Long Beach led the state Assembly to adopt a resolution urging that it and other such programs be maintained. Cal State Chancellor Timothy White put the changes on hold until the campus finds a permanent replacement for former President F. King Alexander…

Oh the humanities!

I remember a girl I went to college with, she was a pretty hard-core Liberal, and we clashed several times in debate, and speech classes. These clashes usually ended with me shutting her down by offering up facts and logic, poor kid, she never had a chance, but I recall her not to gloat, but to share a story of her first glimpse of radical Leftism. She was quite proud to announce that she would be attending a Black Studies course. She had heard great things about the professor, and social justice, blah, blah, blah. Well off to her Black Studies, which I mockingly called Black Embitteredness Studies, she went, and, to her credit she learned something very useful in that class.

Her first class was to be her last before she dropped the course. She shared with our debate class that she, a White girl, was worried she might get killed in that class. She talked of the ugly racist rhetoric, the angry professor, and the rest of the eye-opening content of the class. You see she wanted to believe America had racial issues that should be solved, she had a good heart she cared, and she really saw skin color as I do, that is to say unimportant. The angry propaganda in that class frightened her. Instead of caring people, she saw a bunch of angry, bitter people obsessed over skin color. Gee, that sounds like the leadership of the NAACP doesn’t it? I do not know if her experience with that class started her on the road to Conservatism, but it at least opened her eyes to the inherent anger in much of Leftist doctrine.

 

Rasmussen Poll: 24% of Americans suffer from Racial Obsession Syndrome

The poll does not say that SPECIFICALLY, but….

Most Americans don’t believe George Zimmerman was motivated by racism and do not believe he should be charged with a hate crime for shooting black teenager Trayvon Martin. But as with nearly every question regarding this case, there is wide racial disagreement.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of all American Adults believe Zimmerman’s actions that led to Martin’s death were motivated primarily by racism. Fifty-four percent (54%) think the Hispanic Neighborhood Watch volunteer was chiefly motivated instead by a concern about burglaries in the neighborhood.  Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording,click here.)

The reason I say that these people suffer from R.O.S. is that there is no evidence race played into Zimmerman’s actions. Either they see race in everything, or they are just ignorant as to the evidence. Sadly, too many people are believing the same talking points the Left trotted out when this story first broke last year.

 

 

A salute to MSNBS

RS McCain has a Twitter salute to MSNBS, your all race all the time network Here are just a couple

Al Sharpton was once briefly in the same room with the Truth, But the Truth walked out the minute he noticed Al walking in.

Panel of idiots on MSNBC having a deep discussion of hoodies. I’m not kidding. @alexwagner

Ah MSNBS, the network that takes race baiting to  a new low by the hour. It is like MSNBS has a factory where they just churn out obnoxious, ignorant anchors and guests. Really there are just three reasons to watch the daily train wreck of race pimping that goes on at MSNBS First is that it is the Tree of Low Hanging Blogging Fruit, so much easy material there it is obscene. Then there is the comedy aspect, this network, I use that term loosely, is so far in left field that you just cannot help laughing. These people actually take themselves seriously. Lastly, there is Tamron Hall, who is the sexiest woman in the media.

I just cannot believe is a loony as the rest of that pack of jabbering asses. 

If you look closely here, I believe she is thinking “I just love that Daley Gator guy”TH

ONLY MSNBS could call Trayvon Martin’s friend “articulate”

Good grief!

“It’s been a little scary. Sometimes it’s like she’s speaking Hungarian, and he’s speaking Cantonese. She’s been articulate, just in a different kind of English than mainstream English, she’s speaking Black English. Everything she says, where you can see the Twittersphere, or people I know thinking she’s making a grammatical mistake. If a Martian came down and the Martian happened to be in South-Central rather than in Grand Rapids, the Martian would have as hard a time figuring out how this dialect worked as any other. She said in the clip that ‘I had told you.’ Many people are thinking, ‘why is she using that?’ That’s Black English.”

When Zimmerman is acquitted, how many heads will explode at MSNBS?
