"The Obama administration has entered an unexpected, unpredictable debate over the nation’s racial progress, warning in several events last week that much work remains to be done. Nearly six years after the United States elected its first black president, the signposts of the latest discussion have appeared across the cultural landscape — from the professional sports arena, to the diminishing Western frontier, to a little New England town where an elected official is refusing to apologize for referring to the president by a famously derogatory racial epithet." Washington post
In my opinion, this administration is risking a backlash of historic proportions by becoming what I feared in 2008, that is, a government hostile to white people. I voted for Obama then and in 2012 but only because the GOP nominees were unacceptable to me. It was very much, faute de mieux.
The Democrats and their media allies and flunkies love to talk about the coming irrelevance of white people in a grand future filled with beige people, well, at least that dark. That kind of gloatng over WASP and other whites' future powerlessnes is just simply racist. Black activists and their allies will tell you that they can't be racists because white people have all the power. This is an interesting and somewhat nonsensical definition of "power," but, in fact, blacks and their allies have a lot of power today and are busy re-defining the political and constitutional rights of whites. The case of the egregious basketball team owner is illuminating in this way. The prevailing sentiment in the TV boobery (mostly blond) is something like "how dare he sue the NBA for punishing him!" Say what? Since when does an American not have the right to sue anyone or anything in defense of his property or personal rights. The amazing thing about this attitude is that most people on TV are trying to appear to believe the TV boobs are correct. There is now an endless list of such "adjustments" in attitude that are sought by the Al Sharptons, Eric Holders and Don Lemons of the world. Not only is supposed justice sought by such people but an enforced erasure of private opinion and expression as well.
The Democrats wish to believe that demography is destiny and that demography will make this a country ruled by "people of color." That's amusing because it used to be said that biology was destiny. Heavens! That can't be right. My view is somewhat different. I think that cultural absorption will make this a country in which such special pleading as is heard from Eric Holder will be a distant and irrelevant memory.
As for the 2014 and 2016 elections, the Democrats would be well advised to stop gloating over their victories in advance. pl
