"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering," according to Rush Limbaugh.
Limbaugh's statement sums up a belief expressed by many conservatives, according toBuzzfeed's Mckay Coppins. Coppins explains that right-leaning pundits have a message: "black-on-white violence is spiking - and the mainstream media is trying to cover it up."
Actually, crime statistics show that black on white violence is not spiking - at least, it's not if you look at statistics for hate crimes, in which racial bias is a motive. According to the FBI, 575 anti-white bias crimes were reported in 2010, down from 716 in 2008. White-on-black hate crimes are reported at a frequency that's four times higher, with 2,201 reports in 2010.
Conservative pundits would still have a case if the media was ignoring black-on-white hate crimes, and disproportionately reporting white-on-black crimes. That's the argument made by Tucker Carlson, The Daily Caller's editor: the mainstream media is "lying" by reporting that "the only hate crimes are straight white men somehow committing acts of violence against people who are not straight white men." Carlson would be right if the media reported white-on-black hate crimes at more than four times the rate they report black-on-white crimes - but he doesn't quote any statistics to support that theory.
Really ? Hispanics get Affirmative Action, illegals get a free pass, Spanish is forced on the rest f us and there's hardly a zipcode without a Mexican restaurant. Are you upset because Hispanics don't get as much attention and freebies as other preferred races who have biased ,un-Constitutional, racist laws that give them stuff based on race and victimize whites ?
@portun801 Hmm, you talking about Hispanics, or illegals? Either way. Illegals don't get all the goodies that you'd like to believe, but OF COURSE, you don't believe that. It's part of that bubble you live in.
@BilboBuggles Necessary ? Not according to the Constitution. No one is owed a job or an education, certainly not by private companies or schools. If affirmative action was "necessary" then so is Payback Action . Most of the country is owed and this is just fair since the people who suffered under AA aren't "in a position of power". We MUST start Operation Payback where all those who were denied jobs or an education, housing, etc. and employers who were forced to hire inferior employees, people who had to suffer from those same employees' action (like patients who got AA doctors for example) and everyone who paid more than they should because employees who didn't do their jobs were kept on payroll due to AA. We can start with those who believe AA was "necessary". Send us all a check, work 2 or more jobs if you have to, but pay us back for what you did. Then If AA is supposedly over can we start firing everyone hired because of it ? Can we put the real intelligence tests, college entrance exams, employee screening tests and all other merit based criteria for hiring and retention back in use ? OH GOODY , no more stupid, resentful, incompetent "service" people from that crowd to put up with. Now it's just the usual work-hating whiners and those who think you (but not they) should hand over your money, your job , your property, etc. to anyone with a group-gripe who shouts "I'm a victim" loud enough. These types are bad enough, Hey, aren't they the ones who though Affirmative Action was "necessary" ?
Affirmative Action was never "necessary". Had it not existed, blacks would have made it on their own. It's based on the principle that blacks are somehow inferior and need what amounts to a head start. To accept that principle is simply racist ear wash. If you noticed the white people who pushed Affirmative Action made sure it didn't affect them, just working class whites were hurt.
The sum total was that the powers that be managed to drive a wedge between white and black working class people. That made both groups easier to control.
The last figures I saw were several years ago but black on white crime then was 8 to 12 times higher than vice versa. This has been going own for 10 years or more and the FBI and our Federal Government absolutely covers it up and so does the news media!
Everything nowadays has race connected to it. They want you to believe everything is racially motivated and its always someone else's fault that this happened to you because your whatever you are. But lets be honest, how often do you see white on whatever other race crime? All the time. Whether or not its race driven, the media will remind you it is. Now, how often do you see other races on white crime? Also all the time!! But strangely a white man getting shot by another race is never regarded as rasism. But a white man shoots, lets say a black man, your gonna have the news pumping up that story. But, a white man gets shot, you might hear about it in the paper...maybe. I would agree that white people are losing this war, but I have to watch what I say. I don't want to come off as racist...
Dry your eyes, clean your nose, and change your panties. If there is a race war going on, it is one that began hundreds of years ago. What you are feeling is the victim fighting back. This has never happened before and why you are feeling the way you do.
Rush Limbaugh is a race baiter and great manipulator. He manipulates you people everyday, because he knows he can. You've been pre-programmed to believe what he and others of your race tell you. Hell, most of you don't verify the information you share with each other. you take all information for gospel and you believe everything you are told. It is not your fault. It works for your race, because you've all benefitted greatly from being white. The problem now for you is white is not working, it is becoming a detriment. Thank God!
You may not have started this fight, but it has become yours, because you've known all of your life you've reaped the rewards of the things put into play by your ancestors for white supremacy and you did not stop it or say anything about it. You've taken everything, then you took the rest.
The race war is of your making. Had you all just been fair, got out of the way and allowed things to develop as they would without putting up road blocks, Jim Crow, obstructive laws, and now enacting voter suppression laws this wouldn't even be an issue.
First off your opinions are bigoted. Maybe you've been abused by the system or by a white authority figure somewhere, but so what? You are doing the exact same stereotypeing that you accuse others of. And yes there are race baiters and manipulators on all sides, maybe you've heard of Al Shatpton or Jesse Jackson or the Black Panthers. These folk prey on all of us. Slavery ended generations ago and affirmative action laws been in place for years. I dont know a single white public figure that could get away with the kind of disparaging statements that a minority can make without being villified. The problem with your line of thinking is that it makes your happiness dependant on the actions and attitudes of others. That pretty much never works out. If your simply looking for someone to blame for own failures and just looking for a fight, then by all means continue on. You'll find what you're looking for and your fears will become a self fulfilling prophecy which will only further your delusions of hate. But you're in a lather, what ever happened to judging a person by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin? Unless you think that guy was a race baiter as well.
No one living today is a victim of slavery. All the slaves died a long time ago. At some point black people must stop blaming white people for all their problems and accept responsibility for their own actions. Violent men always want to kill or hurt others. We are all in the human race together. It would be much better for us all to stop finding fault with one another based on skin color and appreciate each other for what we are.
Same in canada. A black woman from africa got a job in my building and shes treating me like shit. Im white and had to move 700 miles west to find work and I dont get paid I volunteer. ITs the white nuns who own the building we work in not her! Total bullshit. My family has been here 400 years I should have rights over any other person regardless of what race they are who just landed in my country and yes it is MY COUNTRY not theirs....
