Thomas asks…

Politics of Racial Extortion…will it last forever?

Now this is a little long, but so is life. Set it aside for now if you’re too busy, and come back when you have some time to read it all. It hits the proverbial nail on the head!

Fred Reed, was a police reporter for one of the large Washington
newspapers. He now writes a column which can be googled ‘Fred on
Everything’. Fred published a weekly online column in which he got
to say the things his editors would never, ever have let him write in
the paper. His stuff is iconoclastic and various articles have
probably offended everyone regardless of political orientation. So,
with the warning that ‘This is definitely not politically correct,’
here comes Fred.

The following is an essay regarding the failings of a system and a
culture.. Please note that he elegantly describes the mood of many
Americans and he does so without prejudice.

Blacks And The Politics Of Racial Extortion; Will It Work Forever?

By Fred Reed

Oh, Lord. I’d pull my hair out, if I had more. On the Web I find
that Henry Louis Gates Jr, the chairman of Afro-American Studies at
Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to blacks.
It’s because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavor by a
gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he’ll send me a bill,
I feel like saying, ‘Let me get this straight, Hank. I’m slow. Be
patient. You want free money because of slavery, right? I don’t blame
you.’ I’d like free money too. Tell you what. I believe in justice.
I’ll give you a million dollars for every slave I own, and another
million fo r every year you were a slave. Fair enough?
But tell me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers,
I mean…Say to the nearest dozen. And how long were you a slave?

Oh, In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn’t
do and didn’t happen to you. That makes sense. Like lug nuts on a
birthday cake.
Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn’t do
and never happened to me. I’ve never been coated in Dutch chocolate
and thrown from the Eiffel Tower. I’ll bet you’ve never done it to
anyone. I want reparations. Kind of silly, isn’t it?
But if we’re going to talk about reparations, that’s a street that
runs in two directions. You want money from me for what some other
whites did to some other blacks in another century How about you
guys paying whites reparations for current expenses caused by blacks?
Not long ago blacks burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my
country. Cities are expensive, Hank. Build one sometime and you’ll
see what I mean. Whites had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for
you. You can send me a check.
Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn’t like the verdict in
the trial of those police officers. Well, I didn’t like the verdict
in the Simpson trial, but I didn’t burn my house and loot Korean
Over the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark,
Detroit, Watts, Miami, on and on. Now add in the fantastic cost over
the years of welfare in all its forms, of large police forces and
jails and security systems in department stores. I can’t live in the
capital city of my own country because of crime committed by blacks.
Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the
benefit of blacks. See what I mean?
Now, I’d view things differently if you said, ‘Fred, blacks can’t get
anywhere in a modern country without education. We know that. We need
better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, books with smaller
pictures and bigger words. Can you help us?’
I’d say, ‘Hallelujah! Hoo-ahh! Not just yes, but hell yes. Let’s sell
an aircraft carrier and get these folks some real schools and get
them into the economic main-stream.’ I’d say it partly because it
would be the right thing to do, and partly, because I’d like to add
you guys to the tax base.
The current custodial state is expensive. I’d just love for blacks to
study and learn to compete and stop burning places. But is it going to happen?
You may not believe it, but I, and most whites, don’t like seeing
blacks as miserable and screwed up as they are. I spend a fair amount
of time in the projects. Those places are ugly. It’s no fun watching
perfectly good kids turn into semi-literate dope dealers who barely
speak English. It just plain ain’t right.
But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? I can’t do your
children’s homework. At some point, people have to do things for
themselves, or they just don’t get done. Maybe it’s time.
I’ll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank…
I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by
just demanding it. True, it has worked for over half a century. Get a
few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and
burn, holler about slavery, and th
and the Great White Cash Spigot turns on. Thing is, whites don’t much buy it any longer. Most recognize that
what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game.
Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies
of blacks.
Political correctness keeps the lid on — but everyone knows the
score. Which scares me, Hank.
On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and
burning. (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the
civil-rights movement. Ever think about that?)
On the other hand, whites quietly grow wearier and wearier of it. Not
On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience),
blacks keep demanding things. As I write, you demand reparations for
slavery. Blacks in Oklahoma (I think it was) want money for some
ancient race riot. Other blacks reject the Declaration of
Independence, blacks in New York hint broadly at burning and looting
over a trial
broadly at burning and looting
over a trial, yet more demand the elimination of the Confederate
flag, and the federal equal opportunity apparatus, which means
blacks, wants to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring nonexistent black
engineers. That’s a lot of demanding for one month, Hank. What
happens if whites ever say, ‘No’?
Now, how about you? You’ve got a cushy job, up there at Harvard, and
you can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are. I
guess it’s lots of fun, and you get a salary for it. But don’t you
think you might do blacks more good if you told them to complain less
and study more?
For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best
approach might be to find some smart black guys, and get them
to study digital design, not Black Studies. That’s how everybody else
does it. It works. Then blacks wouldn’t feel left out, and racial
tensions would decline. Sound like a plan?
Just out of curiosity, how many hours a
Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of
Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black
kids to study real life sho-nuf subjects.

Denny answers:

The very last conversation I had with my father this year we spoke about politics and he told me he “like Barack”. I found this so disconcerting for two reasons. The first is I told him very long ago I would be the first person of mixed heritage to be elected to the Presidency. The second is I spoke to him time and time again that there were many politicians who would take advantage of the fact that the civil rights movement happened and the fact that it was a miserable failure. I wonder if he ever listened to one word that came out of my mouth or he’s more concerned with standing with black people. Yeah it hurts.
