    Multiculturalism itself does not allow for sharia law to hold sway over all, but it is the vehicle that allows fringe groups / tribes / cultures to get a foothold into mainstream society…just as it has with socialism / communism so far.

    And you are correct on bigotry & radical animus – on both sides – preventing a return to a melting pot society……and that is absolutely by design of multiculturalism. It divides people into tribes, removes common values / ties between people of different backgrounds, which is then a perfect breeding ground for community organizers to whip those people into an activist mentality.

    And while everyone is busy fighting with each other, laws are changed, regulations are made, rules are twisted.

    The idea of Sharia taking hold in the US seems absurd, but if one wanted to give it the old college try…just do what the communists did (sure worked for them…and they’ve been nearly as brutal as ISIS has)

    Its more than being ill-equiped to bring children in this world. Its the pop nature of objectifying women,glorifying violence, criminal behavior, and n archaic understanding of respect in that might is right. What do you expect from a pop culture that glorifies behavior in neighborhoods that will get you shot dead for no other reason than wearing the wrong color shirt on the wrong street corner?

    @sue

    That’s been my experience as well. I attended a middle school in the projects in the 90s and remember seeing black kids get teased by other black kids for “acting white” for doing well on tests, participating in class and “speaking proper English”.

    So let’s add this up….blacks are taught that they should first and foremost self identify according to their blackness, they’ve associated qualities that are generally associated with success as being white, and adopting said ” white” qualities is akin to betraying their race.

    Who is holding who back?

    @kinijane

    I think he meant that black women are having multiple kids by multiple men. My experience is only anecdotal, but sex is viewed differently in the black community…in that it’s not a big deal, and are much more cavilier about it.

    Bill is right….its all about culture, and less to do about challenges racial minorities have in a country of a white racial majority.

    Evidence? White people, who are uneducated and adopt lifestyles typical of poor socioeconomic environments suffer the same challenges most of the blacks that live in poor socioeconomic environments do. Conversely, blacks that embrace education and make good decisions in life (don’t get pregnant before becoming economically established, avoid risky behavior -crime, drugs) end up being successful.

    If Megan has a problem with blacks being 4x more likely to live in poor neighborhoods, maybe she should look at the statistic that nearly 3 out of every 4 black children are born to single parent households.

    One way a young black female can guarantee herself to poverty (and said poor neighborhoods) is to have a child before learning the skills necessary to be financially stable…particularly if the dad is equally illequiped or around.

    The big secret that’s just been made visible to me in the last few years is that Obama, Holder, and just about every major player involved in modern race relations think MLK’s “I have a Dream” speech was complete crap. They fully reject the whole idea that everyone should be treated, not according to the color of their skin, but according to the content of their character.

    Doesn’t seem to be enough information to say for sure, and the series of events, as detailed in this article, leave me with more questions.

    If I were a betting man, I’d probably put money on it…..but it could just as easily been about Weems walking in the Waffle House and insulting everyone in the place. Was he drunk? (Waffle House @ 1:00am?)

    Not that how the argument started would justify what was done to him (even if Weems did insult everyone’s mother), but it’s not fair to say without a shadow of a doubt given the lack of info with this.

    Unless Weems threatened to kill every person’s mom, dad & child….there is no excuse for beating someone up like that (or a whoop azz as Rachel Gentile would say)

    This is true, and often overlooked by the tolerance & diversity crowd. But do they overlook it, or was it ever intended for the vehicle (tolerance) to go both ways?

    This is not specific to Islam, but a larger mindset that has taken hold that people are allowed to project their interpretation of a message onto the intent of the message, with all consequences of their interpretation associated.

    The person that made the “Yield to Bacon” sign obviously did not intend to slander or offend Muslims. Any reasonably objective person reading that sign will have a hard time finding context in that sign that insinuates a slight to Muslims, or other faiths that prohibit eating pork.

    BUT, since we now seem to defer to the interpreter of a message, when legal matters might be involved, instead of the message creator, 1 hypersensitive person will fill in context, where there is none, and make assumptions about the message being discriminatory, which then opens it to legal & social action.

    It’s the same concept with many Atheists interpreting religious symbols / text as being some endorsement by the state, and therefore illegal.

    It’s a manipulation of sensibilities in effort to squelch speech or behavior one does not agree with.

    At that point, one way tolerance becomes a dictate.

    What’s appalling is that the school official is upset over the skit because some kid could go home, pick up a gun and for some reason re-enact the skit on a family member…..instead of being appalled that a teacher had kids re-enact a skit of whites killing blacks, based of rumor & conjecture that fit the narrative that blacks can’t walk down the street without being killed by white people in power.

  • August 21, 2014 at 5:41pm

    Not necessarily….CRT states that systemic racism (from whites, against blacks) will not be resolved until the founding documents are tossed out and a new Bill of Rights / Constitution is written, given those founding documents were written by white men…making them inherently biased against all but whites.

    Once Hispanics become larger in numbers than whites, we will then be considered an apartheid state….given a racial minority suppresses racial majorities through our legal & social system. LOL

    Actually, as far as “rapping” goes, his music is far better than the likes of “Lil Wayne”, “Juicy J”, “Lil Boosie”, “C-Murder” or “Tha Bird Man”

    But one’s ability to entertain does not mean they are subject mater experts on important subjects.

    I think ABC scored the Nelly interview, so CNN brought in Talib lol

    Mason C. Weaver wrote a book called “It’s Okay to Leave the Plantation”. Mason grew up during the civil rights movement, was an admitted racist & supported the Black Panther movement. He attended UC Berkley, majored in Afro-American studies and had an “Ah-Ha!” moment after applied some critical thought to the message he kept getting about the Democrats being for “The Poor & Disenfranchised”, and the Republicans being for “The Rich & Successful”.

    He put 2 & 2 together and realized that if the Democrats are for “The Poor & Disenfranchised”, and that party gets power & influence through those people….then it is in the best interest of the Democrat party to make more people poor & disenfranchised. If Republicans get power & influence through “The Rich & Successful”, then it is in their best interest to make more people rich & successful.

    Who then is looking out for his interests to become wealthy & successful in life?

    He goes into great detail in comparing the old slavery system to the modern day government dependency plantation system, and is a very good read.

    @melbhinn – The people decide the “happy medium”. If the elected officials go rogue, or get out of hand, then it’s our civic duty to remove them from office in the next election. Same on the citizenry if they allow the country to slip into tyranny. A transition to that kind of worst-case scenario doesn’t happen over night, in some coup. It happens over time, with plenty of opportunities for the citizens to take control.

    @junkman – we deserve the government we elect. I think it would be a better approach if more than 20% of the population eligible to vote got off their butts and exercised their constitutional right & duty. Money dominates politics because to many people are content to sit on their couch & develop an understanding of the people running for office based on a hit piece ad, instead of doing research & getting engaged in the process.

    @Cavallo – I think the 2nd amendment covered all uses of firearms (guns were much more of a utilitarian tool back in the day than it is today) A right to a firearm in the late 1800s meant just as much to guarantee a person’s right to provide food for themselves, as it did to protect them from other people, and tyrannical governments. If there is literature from the founding fathers that states otherwise, I’d be happy to read it.

    Point is, we have the benefit of our system, which is unique in the world, that it should never get to the point of using firearms against or gov, although we are not protected from it.

    I get where your coming from, particularly from a purely ideological standpoint. That said, lets be real here. If fully auto weapons were equally available as a 9mm pistol, the likelihood of that fully auto weapon being used to rob a bank, or commit some other criminal action is FAR HIGHER than a scenario where you’d need one to fend off a domestic government.

    Like most things, there is a happy medium with this. While we do not need an EPA that is so overbearing that it charges citizens a fee for exhaling carbon dioxide, we do need basic regulations that keep people & business from dumping toxic nuclear waste into rivers & streams.

    Just the same, while we do not need gun regulations that outlaw the possession & use of all firearms, there should be a limit on the possession & use of weapons that are capable of mass destruction.

    If the aim is to keep a tyrannical government at bay, you do that through our legal & political framework before it gets to the point where fully auto weapons are needed by the citizenry.

    In all fairness to Don, you *CAN* fire off rounds very quickly with any semi-auto gun (not just an AR-15). In some cases, you can mod some semi-autos, or manipulate the firing action to *MIMIC* the firing capability of a fully auto weapon.

    I’m sure many of you have heard of the bumping method of positioning the trigger finger & using the recoil of the gun in such a way that it is able to fire off rounds on a semi-auto faster than being able to pull the trigger with your finger.

    All that said, if that was Don’s point, he should have stated it that way. Saying that a semi-auto is the same as a fully-auto weapon is factually incorrect. And while you may be able to achieve a “rapid fire” scenario with a perfectly legal semi-auto gun, it is still not the same as holding down a trigger on a fully automatic weapon (as demonstrated in the video above)

    If you get a chance, read “It’s Okay to Leave the Plantation”. It was written by a black man that grew up during the civil rights era, and made a transformation from the radical Black Panther crowd to conservatism, after he recognized the manipulation within those left leaning groups.

    In it, he draws many comparisons to the old plantations to the modern day dependency system….one of which highlights the similarity in the roles the black religious leaders on the plantations (working with the slave owner to keep the slaves in check via religious doctrine) and the supposed religious leaders in the black community today (still working with the new slave owners – see politicians – to keep the black community on the gov dependency system, or modern day plantation)

    I tend to agree. All you have to do is look at the vandalism of business & personal property.

    Why else would you loot & burn down a local convenience store, when Michael’s contact with the policeman came about because he was walking down the middle of the street?

    Why would flash mobs in Miami loot a corner store, when Trayvon was shot by a community watch person in a nearby neighborhood?

  • [2] August 19, 2014 at 4:05pm

    My cousin was a local beat cop and he didn’t make 40k a year…more like 30-35k. That isn’t a lot of money to put up with the BS police have to put up with (one being threat of loss of life).

    Also, regarding pensions…..the government is trillions in debt for unpaid liabilities. The government guarantees the pensions, and the government can take them away in a SHTF scenario (See Greece)

  • [8] August 19, 2014 at 4:01pm

    In addition, the inner city black communities (at large) despise the police, and don’t trust them as far as they could throw a squad car.

    For the folks that can’t achieve vertical mobility out of the ghetto (lack of education & absent parents) gang / thug life is an easier sell. Gang / thug life runs directly in opposition to law enforcement.

    Pot was NOT the culprit. And for people that use MJ on the regular, the more extreme effects of marijuana tend to fade (paranoia, giggles, etc.) and becomes more of just a numbing effect…kind of like a pain killer.

    Trust me on this, alcohol is a FAR bigger culprit in the “10ft tall & bullet proof” mentality than weed…which actually tend to make most people more risk adverse.

    The fact that he had pot in his system probably has more to do with the common place usage of it within inner city pop black culture, and less to do with a reason why he was a violent person.

    A more likely explanation is that he obviously has a disregard for the rules of law & authority for any one of several demographic & cultural issues.
