Race
"I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."~ MLK Jr. This famous quote is as powerful now as it was when it was issued. This is where Americans of the left & right believe we are now or should be, where character counts -- and is expected. “There is a class of race problem solvers whom make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public….some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs…they don’t want the patient to get well.” Booker T. Washington. Unfortunately, BTW was right then and it continues. Race in this country has now become an industry unto itself, even though the American people think it is about time that we are a post-racial society. Furthering racism however is necessary for the race industry (Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev Jeremiah Wright, Rev Al Sharpton, the National of Islam, the New Black Panther Party, etc) to survive. Which means if racism were ever to be eliminated, the industry and the people whose livelihood depends on it, would no longer be needed. And so it is kept alive, long after it's purpose has faded into history. Therefore, the racism industry is now a bigger problem than the racism issue itself. People on both sides, left and right, agree that racism and discrimination are unacceptable in America. To say or think that only one political group (the right) is to blame is inaccurate, irresponsible and/or ignorant. To say so purposely and knowingly is reprehensible. Unfortunately, political ideologies have also attached themselves to this industry in an attempt to secure votes. The Left ( Marxist, radical and lunatic liberals who control the President and the Democrat party) today, and their media counterparts, lead this reprehensible effort with their daily barrage of viscous and inaccurate racist attacks on the right. The Left has been brilliantly successful with this strategy. This success is extremely ironic when you realize that the legacy of racism in this country belongs to the Democrat party. • Democrats legacy of Racism. • How Republicans Thwarted Democrat racism. • Why only Democrats and liberals should feel white guilt? Below you will see both sides clearly. Let's begin right now to talk honestly about race, about character and about racial progress in this country for a change. Opportunity exists for everyone, equally, and has for the last 60 years. That is at least two generations. In that context, read the debate below on, what should no longer be, the issue of race.

Democrats and Racial Division

12/2/18
from The Wall Street Journal,
11/30/18:

They now play the race card in every hand—because often it works.

p> Democrats are taking racial politics to new heights—and no wonder, since the tactic has again succeeded. This week Republican Senator Tim Scott said he will oppose the nomination of Thomas Farr, tapped for a federal judgeship in North Carolina. Senator Jeff Flake is voting no to showcase his opposition to Donald Trump, and the two GOP defections are enough to torpedo Mr. Farr’s appointment this year.

There’s no reason to doubt the sincerity of Mr. Scott, the Senate’s only black Republican. But Democrats will see Mr. Farr’s defeat as a vindication of their most underhanded and inflammatory racial tactics.

Consider a second complaint against Mr. Farr: that the North Carolina Legislature retained him to defend its 2013 voter-ID law. “This is a man who stands for disenfranchisement of voters, particularly minority voters,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said this week.

This is racial demagoguery.

a bipartisan commission on election reform, led by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker, endorsed the idea of a photo-ID requirement. “Voters in nearly 100 democracies use a photo identification card without fear of infringement on their rights,” the report said. The commission also said that ballot integrity is “a hallmark of democracy.” Was Jimmy Carter harboring racist motivations?

Another case of trying to rile up racial division was this week’s Senate runoff in Mississippi. Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith was assailed for using a clumsy joke to flatter one of her supporters. “I would fight a circle saw for him,” she said. “If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” The national media portrayed this as a coded reference to Jim Crow-era lynchings, which is ludicrous.

In Florida, some supporters of the Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, are saying he lost because he is black. But even among black voters, the progressive Mr. Gillum underperformed by four percentage points Democratic Senator Bill Nelson, who also lost. In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams blamed her gubernatorial defeat on “systemic disenfranchisement, disinvestment and incompetence,” despite massive turnout for a midterm election. *** For two years, Democrats have denounced President Trump’s rhetoric as divisive, and sometimes they’ve been right. Yet they’re also only too happy to polarize the electorate along racial lines, insinuating that Republicans steal elections and pick judges who nurse old bigotries. That tactic now appears to have sunk Mr. Farr’s nomination, which is a shame. The only way to discourage these unmoored racial attacks is to ensure they don’t work.
