Campaign 2012: Are We Over ‘The Black Thing’ Yet?

July 8, 2011

Articles: Campaign 2012: Are We Over ‘The Black Thing’ Yet?.

This is a must read post over at the American Thinker.  It’s sad that you have to be a black person to be able to say the things Lloyd Marcus does in this article, but even he is apparently called racist for his assertions.  Regardless, its an excellent piece, here is the lede:

My fellow Americans, in regard to the U.S. presidency, please tell me we are over “the black thing.”  Can we move past race and gender and simply elect the best American for the job?

Due to liberal media manipulation and guilt, America elected an incompetent black guy as leader of the free world to prove that we are not racist.  Obama’s black skin has made him untouchable, the left’s dream tool to further their socialist agenda. Once America gets over “the black thing”, will the liberal media demand we elect Hilliary to prove we are not sexist?

How long will it be before the liberal media demands that we elect our first openly gay/lesbian president to prove that we are not homophobic?

Read the rest here.

    Isn’t it amazing that when a black man or woman speaks about anything disputing the left-wing meme, they are labelled an Uncle Tom or “House N—-r.” If they don’t toe the line and stay on the “liberal” plantation, they can no longer be allowed to express their opinion. This is the most racist attitude one can have, but the media falls right in line. You can’t be really black if you espouse conservative ideas and principles. What BS. Look at the heat Bill Cosby got for suggesting that the black kids needed more guidance at home and needed to drop their ghetto language and clothing. Now Cosby is no conservative, but he was ostracized for daring to blame blacks for many of their own ills, rather than lay it off to the white man. It was only through his strong character, intelligent rebuttals, and fame that he was able to maintain his public image. Condoleeza Rice is another. She is certainly no right-winger, but look at the grief she went through – just because she was a member of the Bush administration.

      The biggest sin a black man can commit in today’s society is treason to his race. It is an amazingly racist concept because the sin – speaking out against his race,suggesting that things don’t have to be the way they are, empowering blacks to do for themselves instead of relying on their white enablers – presumes a childish and ignorant mentality among the mendicants. They thinking goes, “If we let successful black conservatives have their say, other black people might actually look into what they are saying and find some truth.” Well, we can’t have that can we? Much better to keep them in ignorance and never challenge any premises of the progressive plantation.

    There are 2 blacks that could run on the Republican/Tea Party ticket and win – Herman Cain and Allen West. West says he’s not running, but that is a winnable combination. And that would REALLY put progressive panties into a wad. The great thing about both men is that race is never mentioned, at least in reference to themselves. They are both men of honor and conviction, two things the left hasn’t figured out.

      I am still on the fence about Cain, but West would get my vote in a heartbeat! I think a West/Bolton ticket would rock!

        West/Bachmann would bring out all of the racists and sexists in the Progressive movement. Can you imagine what they would come out with in the media?

        Yeah, now just pick a gay guy to be secretary of state and we would have the trifecta – man that would be awesome! I would be so quick with the blank-o-phobe card it would give whiplash to the recipient. =)

    I predict since the failings of Obozo that another black person will never be President again, that was their one shot and they blew it, too bad they couldn’t have started with Herman Cain. I also predict you’ll never see a woman President and if you’re counting on Bachmann, won’t happen.

    Okay, so what we need is a liberal black woman that’s gay, I’m surprised the liberals haven’t thought of the win/win/win, Sheila Jackson, democrat, black and woman and she’s probably a closet lesbian, now wouldn’t that be a kick in the teeth.

      I wouldn’t say “never” but I would concede the main point, Obama was such a failure that people are going to think twice about next time.

      Unfortunately, for us, you are probably correct. The typical voter doesn’t look at the credentials, principles, and character of any of the candidates. They only hear the promises and 15 sec. sound-bytes. Voting is a privilege that should be limited to only those that are sufficiently informed to exercise. Notice how you can track the increased speed of the demise of our US Republic with the ever increasing availability of the vote. You don’t need to know any more than what you get off of MTV to go vote, if that much. Get a driver’s license – register to vote. That just means that the people that can barely navigate their cars to the polls are eligible to vote.

      That a significant percentage of voters in the last election thought that Sarah Palin was the Vice Presidential running mate of Barack Obama proves this point. Voting is just like everything else in our society – it has been dumbed down to the lowest common denominator. I know what the solution to this problem is, but there is no way to implement it in this day and time. It certainly isn’t to award 16 yr. olds or illegal aliens the vote. Might as well let my dog vote. Ooops, better not suggest that. Although I think he might do a better job.

        Some dogs voted last time as well as fish and dead people.

        I believe that there should be an IQ test for voters, if you don’t have an IQ higher than 100 you don’t get to vote, unfortunately even that doesn’t mean that you know enough about the issues or candidates to make an informed decision.

        If you want to lay the blame on someone lay it at the feet of the Dept of Education, the dumbing down of America begins with them.

    I defer to Bastiat and his view of the franchise. In his opinion, which I wholeheartedly agree, extending the franchise is nothing more than a way to get the “mob” to support (or demand retribution) from the “legal plunderers” in power. The result being, when the mob gets power (through the vote) instead of choosing to govern, they seek only to continue the plunder and “get back” at the people who plundered before them but didn’t “hook them up”.

    To Bastiat, if our governors followed the Constitution to the letter, there would be no way to legally plunder nor award ANY group special privilege, hence there is no need for universal suffrage, since no disadvantage exists from not being able to vote. If our politicians followed the law and the Constitution, I would never need to vote because I would never need to worry about them legally stealing my life, liberty or property.

    Now, the problem is, the world we live in is not the world Bastiat envisions. Obviously, if NO ONE is going to follow the Constitution, then by all means we MUST have universal suffrage since he who can not vote is utterly powerless to those who can. Even the stupid and ill-informed have a right to their own life, liberty and property, unfortunately coupled with that is the possibility that they vote for people who will try to take such rights from others to feed the them. Its a convoluted mess that can only be resolved by following the Constitution.

    I agree, well put.
