    Default Increasing the "Racial Divide"

    I've been around a long long, long time, longer than most of you I'm sure, and I have never seen the "Racial Divide" divide any stronger than it is right now. Just watching the news (and yes its Fox, but this deals with substanciated stories) you cant help but wonder about what is perpetuating this Black vs White explosion, just to name a few of the stories, the Beer Garden incident, the Black Panthers 2, the AG refusing to look at the voter intimidation case, the ACLU vs Az, the NAACP racial claims, U.S. vs Az SB 1072, Jesse Jacksons outrageous slavery comments about Lebron.
    IMO there is an underlying movement causing the proverbial pot stirring but I wont mention any names.
    Any thoughts?? NSF

    I was thinking the same thing when I was reading the article about them attempting to label the tea partiers as a bunch of racists. It was also pretty interesting that no one has been able to produce anything that supports the claims of the racial slurs at the black caucus. I think there attempting to replay on the whole white guilt bs myself.

    They want the race thing. Obama wants all the minority to vote. Wants a mess.

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the kenyancrew was actively trying to increase the divide. Seems that way.
    With the blacks though I don't see the point. They already blindly follow as it is. I bet he'll actually get LESS of the black vote in 2012 IF he runs. Big fu ckin IF.
    Brown vote too.

    American prison culture tells the story: Basically the three gang affiliated groups are Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics. The White and Hispanics both dislike the Blacks.The Whites and Hispanics tolerate each other. The Hispanics really hate the Blacks. Most fights are between those two groups. AB are usually the most feared because of organization and psycho members in and out of prison. There is no polite window dressing on the inside like on the outside. Diversity ain't so wonderful when the polite window dressing goes away.

    If you remember, anytime the population starts scrutinizing our government, the race issue pops back up. When people started complaining about $5,000 coffee pots that could withstand a 3G crash, $3,000 toilet seats, and $70 hammers back during the Reagan administration, the racial debate started rearing it's ugly head as talk of repealing affirmative action. The same during the Clinton era.

    It's a way of dividing the population. If the people are arguing among themselves, they don't have time to see what their government is doing. The unfortunate thing is that this time it could blow up into civil unrest!!!! It's like these guys are playing with matches around a leaking propane tank!!!

    Do you speak from experience when you say this? I spent 5 years in prison - not incarcerated, but going into the prison system with two of my sons every Sunday evening and teaching religious instruction. It was a very rewarding experience and I'm sorry but I never witnessed this divide there as the many who attended our classes considered each other brothers despite their varied races and colors. I don't doubt there are gangs/clicks/groups within many of the systems but labeling them all as you have is simply ignorant.

    I do, however, believe the divide has grown greatly in the past two years. Once the election was over, I secretly hoped the African Americans would feel less divided with a black man as president but I fear the opportunity to unite has been lost in the shuffle. We have seen more racial issues and ignored more racial injustice in the past two years than I can remember.
    It's not getting better, it's getting worse but it is still a personal choice and I choose to consider all men my brothers as they were each made in God's own image. There is no shortage of class and trash within each race, creed, color, etc. Respect will still have to be earned by the individual. It cannot be legislated.
    The best things in life aren't things!

    Sorry Doc but he has you on this issue. i have several friends that are working in the prisons and some that have been in them on the wrong side of the law and he is right, it is divided as he says.

    Doc you are such a naive "Do-gooder"! While you are sincerely doing what you think is the Lords calling. The inmates in your religious studies classes are socializing, passing information and contraband. "Finding the Lord in prison" is for most a scam inmates do to get points. Just as you get points in your church for your "Prison ministry". Sounds like it meets everyone needs. I see no harm in this but at least be real on what it is all about.

    I've been around long enough to watch the Civil Rights movement unfold on TV in black and white, and saw JFK's funeral.

    My perception is that race relations are in better shape then they were in the 60's. I won't post prison issues, because that is a completely different set of social rule.

    During my 22-year career in the USMC, I saw more of a coming together, then a coming apart. I have many Black friends, some of them life-long, living all over the world. Our discussions are not about racial divides, but of individual ideals.

    What Obama's election proved was that all Americans have the opportunity, not just the wealthy, the well-heeled, the burgoise, the Caucasian.

    There is no doubt that political lines rest on ethnic ideals, and this may be why the divide looks racial. But I think we are seeing polarization on a political level, not a racial one. And yes, I have seen thinly veiled racist comments in/on public places.

    Bottom line, strife sells news.

    The country elected it's first black president but unfortunately elected an incompetent idiot who is a socialist. He was elected by many who were voting against the former Admin and against an 8 year Republican "reign." Few voters for O actually took the time to see just what the man was about and failed to listen to the plans he had for changing the US. They just wanted to put the Dems back in office as the media told them was necessary.

    Many voted for him just because he was black and they thought it would be "neat" to finally have a black man in office. America had "arrived" as a true land of equality, and they were proud to be part of history.

    The Republicans on the other hand were giving an old warhorse his chance. He'd done nothing in his long Senate tenure to help his party retain economic and social conservatism and was actually far better suited for the Dem Party than his own, hell he was closed to running for Dem VP alongside Kerry in '04. A weak leaderless Republican Party prepared poorly for the Primaries and before they knew it McCain had gained far too much momentum. The Dems had got "their" man nominated and happily knew '08 would be a cakewalk as staunch Republicans grumbled and plugged their noses while independents said no way.

    Once elected the country faced a dilemma. It was becoming widely evident that the Kenyan fraud was not what he'd been advertised to be with his questionable financial backing, more and more of his dark side became apparent. But the only thing they could throw back at detractors was "Race". Folks didn't question the new man as incompetnet and terribly inexperienced. They didn't question his shady background and soicialistic leanings......NO they disliked him solely because he was "Black".

    And that's the way the "Regime" wants it to be. Focus on "Race" and and use it for cover to push the "agenda" through. America, you've been duped......

    Race relations are not worse in middle America, but they are on the radical publicized fringes where it's being used as a tool and a coverup.

    No, it proves that 54% of Americans are idiots and 20+% of them voted based on color.

    Excellent post as usual Tex. I don't admit to being a roket scientist, but I recently read a few articles where Condi Rice was considered as a running mate for McCain, but discounted because there was a good chance she was gay.

    That would have covered the Black, Female and Gay voters in one fell swoop, plus got a better guy elected.

    Agree 100% with the "tool and cover up" comment. As long as we keep the masses squabbling over the little stuff, we can avoid the important stuff seeing the light of day.
