I’m very alarmed at a trend that is happening in this country. We’ve been witnessing the demonization of wealthy people, now we are seeing a demonization of white people.
This was MANDATORY “Sensitivity Training” given to the USDA. In these sessions the attendees are required to chant things like, “Thank you, black man”, “Pilgrims were illegal aliens”, “Pilgrims didn’t show their passports”, etc. It’s a false position to begin with. America was not a country with laws of any kind, let alone immigration laws. Primitive nomadic people were the only inhabitants. There was nothing illegal about the pilgrims settling there. Through out the history of the world man has explored and discovered new lands. It is the nature of man.
We hear these days that the Constitution is outdated because it was written by old white men. Why are white people being condemned for settling this country, fighting for it’s independence and designing a Constitution that created the most successful country with the highest standard of living for even it’s poorest in the world? Our Constitution is the oldest in the world because it can’t change overnight when a new President takes office. The media says our Constitution is old and outdated. Outdated? How is freedom outdated? Our Constitution designed a government that protected our God given rights, not one that gave us our rights. How is that “outdated”. The Constitution created three branches of government, each as important as the other and that made us a stable country. That’s why we’ve been so successful. Everyone of the the citizens of this country is better off than they would have been had they not come here. Why do you think people have risked their lives to come to America. Why do you think more than twice the number of people immigrate here every year than all the other countries in the world combined……because we’re so unfair and unjust?
On the Rush Limbaugh show the other day a young woman called in and said she was in college studying to be a teacher and that part of the program was to accept that all white people are racist even if they don’t think they are. Apparently that is necessary because many of our grade schools are teaching that. Some colleges have entire programs that teach being white is unfair. We are to believe and accept that we are racist and unfair because of the color of our skin. http://www.wnd.com/2009/04/94600/ http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/06/21/not-fair-to-be-white-see-the-unbelievable-new-campaign-sponsored- by-the-university-of-minnesota-duluth/
What an unbelievably offensive claim. If whites are racist and don’t know it, what can be done about it? How do you change how you feel if you don’t feel that way? Are white people to step aside for minorities for the rest of time because it’s been deemed unfair to be white? Are we not to be given credit for building the most successful country in the world, for freeing the slaves and passing civil rights? Have white people really done nothing for minorities?
The civil rights movement was happening when I was in High School. I marched for civil rights. I wrote a piece for our year book against segregation. I had gone from a 100% white Junior High School to a High School that was about half white and I never noticed. In fact I never thought of Mexicans as being a different race…..a different nationality, yes, but not a different race. My feelings about anyone has always been based on their behavior not their race. But, according to the Left, I’m a racist.
I am so sick of hearing about everything being “unfair”. All of us, ALL of us face obstacles and, yes, discrimination in our lives. Sometimes for no discernible reason. It’s a waste of time to rage against it. People need to find a way to overcome whatever obstacles they face because it IS possible. It has been my experience that those who determine to succeed, do, no matter their race or religion. Just ask the ever growing list of successful minorities. Being white isn’t “fair”? Oh, GROW UP!
