So these guys were at a polling station in Philly with a night stick threating whites and some blacks entering the station.
The ring leader had Democratic polling station observer credentials and was a law graduate from Howard.
Career justice dept attorneys worked the case for voter intimidation and Obama’s political appointees ordered them to drop the case.
One of the thugs told a white voter “You’re about to be ruled by the black man, cracker”
A well known civil rights activist from the 50s actually directy observed this intimidation and said it was worse than anything he ever saw in Mississippi in the 50s.
Why would they not prosecute this?
Why do you think? Minorities never do anything wrong, it’s all due to white racism.
The only person who would think this is a non-minority wanting to inflame peoples passions and already ingrained prejudices.
While what you say would make perfect sense if dealing with people without mental issues, in fact many people have a mental disorder that among other things affects them on this subject.
Seriously, there are places such as universities that teach that BY DEFINITION racism is a phenomenon only existing in whites. I recall a news story not long ago about a university that not only taught this in classes, but had an indoctrination program (of course it was not called that) where dormitory residents were counseled in this and expected to agree with it.
Of course that is insane. But there are people dedicated to insane propositions.
I assure you that bizarre as it sounds, there are people – both white and black as well as probably other races – who absolutely do believe no act or thought of a black person is ever racist. No evidence can persuade them to the contrary. It is part of their (mentally-disordered) belief system.
We could go on FOREVER talking about all the individual bullshit that people believe. I’m right along with you if there is someone who actually believes that anyone is “not” capable of being racist and/or a hate mongerer.
However, I also don’t support that there has been some great “paradigm shift” of rampant, institutionalized racism that is denying white males of their fundamental rights and freedoms, OR of gainful employment.
Has there been, and will there be, real stories of discrimination and racism against whites?
You bet there is…
But it’s all a sad reality of the human condition, independent of what race you are.
