Psssst, you know those crackers are racist, right?
Those racist tea party crackers!
Good lord, have mercy.
It's just so tiring and predictable. That's right -- predictable and tiring, far too comfortable in their own prejudice, cloaked in the pussified tremblings of faux fear.
The entire "tea partiers are racist" crowd, that's who. Somehow, from within and without, we've indoctrinated an entire race of people (African Americans) so much that there is now some pavlovian reaction from a large majority of that race at any moment when some other group gets rather agitated and animated. That's a quite curious condition (the pavlovian response to such action), given that we as a people tend to animate and agitate at an elite level.
I swear, for a proud black man who actually has faith in the common African American non-race-hustler, it's a pathetic sight to behold. It truly is, and I am not alone in this view. Check out this video:
More brothers like Cobb, please.
A political day of reckoning is fast approaching and we as African Americans are far too lopsided on the Irresponsibility Index. Take your pick of the measure; if it's tracking irresponsibility, we are well-represented. There will be a ferocious price to be paid akin to principal and interest (God only knows what form of payment will ultimately be demanded) and the price has only ballooned since the election of Zee Roh.
Answer me this: how in the hell has a can-do, achieve-against-all-odds and make-a-way-out-of-no-way race of people willingly transformed themselves into a group obsessively concerned with bitchin' and moanin' while just as obsessively concerned with the neer-do-wells among us?
How in the hell has all of this (the attainment of such a sorry, navel-gazing, "we're not responsible" worldview) occurred at the very time in our nation's history when our greatest and freest opportunities stare us directly in the face?
That is a hell of a trick we have allowed to be played on ourselves, wouldn't you say?
And no one has done it to us, but us.
It should be self-evident that we'll never turn around our Irresponsibility Indices until we somehow convince our young men to expel the faggotty, saggy-pants culture that has seeped into our midst from the prisons. It is a lazy, standard-less culture that revels in the gaps provided by a society far too interested in "rights" and far less interested in the just as important (if not moreso) concept of "citizenship" that has buttressed American society for generations.
This is our challenge, and those are the racists I'm far more interested in counterbalancing.
