I grow weary, with each passing day of the media elite within this country. The medias whole purpose is to inform and investigate to ensure that American’s are well informed. There appears, however to be this blatant bastardaization by those on the “far” left to hide, manipulate and/or destroy with their double standards and hypocrisy, especially when it comes to claiming and labeling racism.
Case in point: Breitbart was given a video of an NAACP speech given by a USDA government employee, Shirley Sherrod. Now, only part of the UNEDITED speech she gave was provided. The part of the speech that was provided was NOT edited.
Short version: Sherrod talks about how she had the power to basically stick it to a white famer, but after two weeks she realized that it was not about black and white rather it was about the “haves and have not’s”.
During this video, you can hear the NAACP members in attendance agreeing, amending and clapping about her denying a white farmer her full attention and how she wanted to send him to his own people because all she could think about was the black farmers losing their land.
Did she finally assist the white farmer to her full capacity, she and the farmer say she did. Does this negate the fact that she originally used her “power” to discriminate against a famer simply because of the color of his skin? No, it does not.
Sherrod still behaved in a racist manner, there is no other way to view this.
In fairness I viewed the entire 43 minutes of the tape and what was more disturbing than the NAACP members laughing and clapping at her racist behavior and power was that of the first 20+ minutes of her speech.
These first 20 minutes of her speech, a speech mind you that was intended to promote the USDA within the community paid for with tax payers dollars, was the fact that she talked about how bad the white man was during slavery, during the 1950’s and 60’s. Why?
What purpose did that 20+ minute speech serve other than to rile up the black members of the NAACP and increase the already larger racial divide?
Now, imgaine this person is a white man doing and behaving in the manner towards a black man. We would not be having these discussions because the white man would have been fired in a heart beat!!!!!!
My son came home from school this past May (2010) and told me that a couple kids at the bus stop kept calling him a cracker and a honkey. He then told me that it was not fair because if he called them the “N” he would be in a lot of trouble. That there told me that the two boys were black. I asked him what he did and he informed me that he told them to stop being racist and to just shut up. He then informed me that the two black boys told him that blacks can’t be racist and that if he did not shut up his white honkey ass they were going to beat it.
And this is the mentality that I unfortunately see more times than night, especially when I was a police officer-that is, blacks can be racist and almost inevitably no matter what whites do or say, that some how something racist can be derived from their words and/or actions.
While I patrol I ended up detaining a black man around 3:15pm on a Tuesday afternoon. Why? Because he was driving 90 miles an hour in a school zone. #1. Speed limit is typically 45 mph; #2. School zone speed limit is 20 mph; #3. driver did NOT have insurance; #4. Driver’s License was not on his person and he claimed it was from another state.
I ended up arresting the man. In court shortly thereafter and claimed that my detaining and arresting of him was because he was black. WOW, what a racist statement to say; I mean, if a black cop had been there instead of me he obviously could not have made this statement but because I am white he can? Again, WOW!
I testified and his attorney again made this claim. My reponse and I of course was being sarcastic:
`You are right sir, it had nothing to do with the fact that your client was operating a motor vehicle at a rate of 90 mph. `It had nothing to do with the fact that he was operating said vehicle at a speed in a school zone. ` You are right that it had nothing to do with the fact that this speed to which he was operating said vehicle should his vehicle had struck a child would have surely killed that child. `You are right that it had nothing to do with the fact that he had no insurance on his vehicle or the fact that he could no produce a valid drivers license.
The judge convicted the man of the failure to control speed, speeding in a school zone, driving without insurance and no valid drivers license. The man was also arrested for driving with a suspended license from another state.
He went directly to jail for 72 hours (mandatory for driving with a suspended license).
Comments alleging a white man going after a black man: and this is not a racist statement? Lord have mercy on her soul!
