President Barak Obama has infuriated liberal blacks across the country. How? By his “bathroom edict” regarding the choice of restrooms transgendered students may use.
The liberal black community is absolutely livid over Obama’s proclamation. Apparently, only black people can have civil rights. Read for example:
So, to them, Obama is a sell-out. They believe because of this one act regarding the rights of transgendered individuals, Obama has turned his back on the sacrifices of all those who have suffered and died in the name of civil rights for blacks, and incidentally, only blacks are oppressed and in need of civil rights.
Some of them are pretty harsh, and vociferous. The original quote I saw stated “No transgenders have been lynched,” and went on to make a litany of civil rights offenses suffered by civil rights activists in the ‘60s that they feel no transgendered person has had to endure. After much searching, all I can find now are comments along the lines of ‘no transgenders have been hung from trees.’ Tomay-to, tomah-to. One individual seems to have a serious issue with transgender rights:
I grew up on a plantation in Alabama under Jim Crow laws; I recall when we had “colored only” bathrooms and drinking fountains. They integrated my high school the year I graduated. I participated in the civil rights movement, and it’s personally offensive to hear Loretta Lynch compare transgenders to black people. People didn’t hang from trees or bleed in the streets to have their sacrifice disgraced in this manner.
Rosa Parks didn’t go to jail for trying to use the men’s bathroom. Martin Luther King Jr. and others who marched with him didn’t get fire hosed and have dogs turned loose on them because of their sexual identity. It’s demeaning to blacks and it diminishes the work of Dr. King and other civil rights forerunners.
Instead of using the legacy of the civil rights movement to encourage unity, Loretta Lynch would rather trash the movement. Shame on her!
Another site, listed above, rants, “What about the ‘dignity and respect’ of black Americans and the civil rights pioneers who fought for real equality, Mrs. Lynch?” They go on to state, “Obama and Lynch have a wicked anti-American globalist agenda that has nothing to do with uplifting blacks. This is why they degrade on of our noblest movements for social change by equating it to a warped cause. Most blacks don’t consider the transgender bathroom matter a civil rights issue, let alone a priority. They have more pressing issues like finding jobs and keeping their kids away from drugs and gangs.”
Another quote from myinforms.com I cannot argue with. It reads:
“Liberal elitists are using blacks and the positive memory of the civil rights movement to change America into a godless nation. When they have an immoral and wicked agenda to push, they always attach it to the movement and put a black face on it. And since the traditional black family has been wiped out by decades of welfare, drugs, and immoral behavior, there are no real men left to stand against this evil.”
So be it. As I said, I cannot argue that point. What needs to happen now is the black community as a whole needs to recognize that there ARE no real men to lead them. To quote the movie “The American President,” ‘In the absence of genuine leadership, they’ll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone. They’re so thirsty for it they’ll crawl through the desert to a mirage and when they discover there is no water, they will drink the sand.’ This has been the fate of blacks seeking civil rights – the right to walk out their door, without fear or hesitance, and just go about their lives. There has been no real leadership in the black civil rights movement since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. There has been a vacuum for decades that has been filled by what I call the Civil Rights Industry. I see NO black lives improving except for the lives of those who have taken an advantaged position to begin with, and jockeyed it into a lifetime of sucking hefty salaries from the NAACP, CORE, Congress, and now they are sucking into themselves the “Black Lives Matter” movement. Because it is true, and because it has incredible earning power for them. They have beaten the dead horse of lynchings back in the day into oblivion. They need FRESH BLOOD. They will cheerfully chant, “Black Lives Matter,” take your money, and not do a damned thing.
It is time for INDIVIDUAL people – don’t say “of color” – that’s just another divisive label your failed leadership has saddled you with – INDIVIDUAL people need to make up their minds to understand IF I DO NOT HELP MYSELF, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO? Nobody. We are all responsible for our OWN lives, our OWN decisions, and to set OURSELVES on the path to a better life.
For the love of God, for the love of your children, for the love of your families, BLACK PEOPLE, LOOK AT YOUR LEADERSHIP. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR POSITIONS. THEY CARE ABOUT GETTING RE-ELECTED. THEY CARE ABOUT THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS LINING THEIR POCKETS.
All of you individual black people, and people who care for what has become of black American society, decide what you’re going to unify to achieve to HELP EACH OTHER, and by all means work towards that. Demand your children be taught by the best teachers, not the teacher with the most seniority. The Civil Rights Industry has the Teachers’ Union in their pocket.
Demand the place where you live is SAFE for YOU and your children to live. It is YOUR choice to decide whether drug dealers and gangs go unchecked, or if a bunch of INDIVIDUALS decide “ENOUGH!” and start turning them in. A single person with THEIR cell phone can give evidence to clean up part of a block. A LOT of INDIVIDUALS with their cell phones can gather enough evidence to clean up a whole project. And those INDIVIDUALS will reap the benefit of seeing their kids play outside without being shot. It’s YOUR home. You, and you, and you, it’s up to all of you. It’s obvious the Civil Rights Industry doesn’t give a damn, and the police are outmanned.
Demand your children graduate with an equal footing to qualify for performance-based scholarships into the best schools. If you are satisfied with your child graduating and still being illiterate, you should not have children, or you need to rise up and demand better. The choice is yours.
The folks enraged about Obama’s selling out are entitled to their opinion, just as I am. And my opinion is this.
I hear statistics about how blacks make up 66% of the prison population, but make up only 13% of the general population. That, on its face, looks just wrong. And it is. Because the Civil Rights Industry has destroyed the black family, kept the educational system weighted against blacks, and there’s nothing for young black men to do. They cannot find jobs. Not jobs that pay as well as dealing drugs. Unfortunately, dealing drugs is against the law, which may be why they are afraid of the police, they run from them, and get taken down by tazers or dogs.
It is finally time for black Americans to find a genuine leader. Someone who is not preaching the same old litany from the great advances made by the leaders in the 1950s and 1960s. It’s time for black Americans to become just plain Americans, see other Americans as human beings, not oppressors, because we’re not. We look at what your leadership has done to you, and are grateful to God your lot is not ours. But we have no objection to anyone who wants to work hard, be persistent, and refuse to give up on his or her dreams. My personal secret I pass on to EACH of you is this: when someone bars your way, tells you ‘no,’ then find someone else, and keep asking until you find someone who says, “yes.” Then you get their name and number, you thank them, and you keep climbing. No one is going to hand anyone a lovely life on a silver platter, not where your leadership has dumped each of you. My God, every ONE of you deserve better. If you promise to work for your dreams, I promise to keep seeing every one of you as human beings, just like me, trying to make it through life the best we can.
I find it odd that it took transgendered students using the bathroom to rip back the curtain and show the utter selfishness and lack of care the Civil Rights Industry shows. Topple them all. Cut them all off. They haven’t done anything to help YOU in decades. Stop contributing to them, and pray something better rises from the ashes.
