Please, White Americans…!

White people are smug in the privileges that their skin tone gives them. They don’t realize the special status that they do have – many of them cry ‘reverse discrimination’ these days even though it does not exist, except maybe if the business in question is a taco stand that caters mainly to Latino clientele, for example. They would probably want to hire someone who speaks Spanish or is bilingual, and not a lot of Americans can speak more than one language.

When White Americans are well spoken, no one accuses them of ‘acting White’ or ‘being uppity’. The same goes for when they aren’t very articulate. I have watched shows where people spoke in heavy regional accents (which makes one sound uneducated to my ears), but they were White so I’m sure no one thought that they sounded ignorant, the way Blacks are described when they speak ‘Ebonics’ or when immigrants use broken English. Who looks down on Cockney accents or strong Brooklyn voices or those slow Southern drawls so long as they come the thin pink lips of a White person?

Who calls Eminem, Justin Bieber, Kid Rock, Robin Thicke, or Justin Timberlake, for instance, ‘thugs’ because of the way that they dress? Whites can walk around in sagging pants, their hair in dreadlocks or twists, their skin tanned to leather, and no one blinks an eye. If a Black man is sagging, he’s a felon just out of prison…his dreads are ‘nasty and dirty’, and as for having permanently dark skin – that is a nightmare for most non brown people. Remember the ‘nappy headed hoes’ comment? That’s the way White people see a lot of Black women. Blacks are definitely more sexualized than any other race.

Whites don’t know how it feels to walk into a store and feel every eye upon them, or to be ignored by the salespeople, just because they are a certain skin color. A lot of Whites believe that we can’t afford to buy anything in some shops – recall the incident with Oprah Winfrey in that exclusive store over in Switzerland a few years back? I guess they think all minorities shop at Goodwill or Walmart or some other cheap place but I’m here to tell you, the most visible customers I see in those stores are Whites, followed by Hispanics.

White people do not have to constantly prove themselves the way minorities must do. If the job requires only a high school diploma, it might be wise for the minority to have a 2 year college degree or at least a one year diploma or certificate from a vocational trades school. I have seen requirements that ask for a lot and I always think to myself: why in the world should this position have a need for x amount of schooling, and x amount of experience into the bargain? I always see  young White girls in jobs that deal with the public, such as a receptionist or a secretary, and even in minority-run dental offices, there were will be several White women present. You rarely see Blacks – or Latinos – in White dental clinics in my area.

White people are never told to ‘get over’ the Holocaust, 9/11, the Civil War, or any of the other wars. Yet Blacks are always reminded that slavery ended over a hundred years ago. Never mind that the Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws were instituted after the fall of slavery. Never mind that Blacks did not have any more rights than the average mutt in the street. Never mind that the Ku Klux Klan and White Citizens Councils reigned powerfully supreme over the region of the South, terrorizing Blacks and those that supported them. Never mind that more than 5,000 Blacks were lynched from the late 1800s through the mid 1900s.

I hate playing the race card but sometimes there are words that must be spoken – or written, as the case may be with this blog post – and I firmly believe that Blacks will have to look to their own kind if they want to lift themselves up from poverty, crime, single motherhood, drug dealing, chemical dependence, and other woes before marching with Black Lives Matter. The problem isn’t the police or White people, illegal aliens or GMOs, skinheads or the KKK. The problems lie within our own communities and until we own up to it, we shall never overcome.

White People Are Pissed

It has been simmering for decades, this anger that is inside nearly every White man in the nation, this insane fury that erupts at various ‘Alt Right’ rallies and protests and marches. White men, who have been on top from the moment they stepped foot on American soil, are extremely pissed off. There are plenty of White women who are as well, but they are viewed more as the supporters of the Angry White Men. These enraged people came into the limelight with the election of President Obama in 2008; they are more brazen and out in the open since President Trump took over the Oval Office.

What emboldened white nationalists to brazenly march through a sleepy college town and then violently assault counterprotesters? That’s the question lingering in the minds of Americans two weeks after Charlottesville.

Although many forces came into play to produce these heartbreaking events, a crisis of white identity drove them. More than a half-century ago, minorities, women and immigrants began to challenge the economic, political and legal hierarchy that had favored white men for centuries. Their efforts produced a white backlash that burst into the open after Barack Obama’s election in 2008.

The past five decades have not been kind to the white, heterosexual men who made up the overwhelming majority of those who invaded Charlottesville and who support the white nationalist movement. Until the 1960s, white men sat unchallenged atop the United States’ cultural and economic pyramid. They did not have to compete against women or African Americans in the workplace, and they benefited from laws and customs that sustained their privileged position. They not only ruled the workplace, they dominated American politics and exercised virtually unchallenged power at home.

At the same time, a combination of unprecedented prosperity and a muscular labor movement provided well-paying jobs in large manufacturing plants with generous benefits. (There were, of course, many whites who lacked meaningful employment and battled poverty, but compared to other groups, white men clearly enjoyed advantages.) – The Washington Post

White people are very pissed off. Immigrants are coming into Western countries in droves, refugees are being allowed entrance, and then there are the native born people of color that they have to worry about. Women have rights that men never wanted them to have, and then there’s the Black Lives Matter movement, the LGBT community, and other such organizations calling for acceptance and equality. White people – especially White men – are angered by the demands of these groups. They claim that they have been pushed aside, and are openly discriminated against, in favor of minorities, women, and others.

They say that they are the victims of ‘reverse discrimination’, that Affirmative Action is a racist arm of the US government, and that states with ‘at will’ employment are bigoted against straight White males. I see it all the time on social media. White men whine about feminists, complain about not being able to use the word ‘nigger’. and bitch about not being allowed to display the Confederate flag from their vehicles and homes. They create ugly memes that put down White women who are in interracial relationships (usually with Black or Latino males) when they often marry mail order brides from China and other Asian countries.
I don’t understand what White men are so angry about. When it comes to employment, they are still guaranteed a position while it is the one with darker skin who is passed over, often because s/he has a foreign or ‘Black sounding’ name. Do you honestly believe that an employer is going to hire LaRica Brown or Asim Muhammed or Enrique Vazquez over Bradley Waterford and Katie Jenkins? If you do have a name that they can’t tell is ‘White’ or ‘Black’, the interview will be a time of discovery and you are certainly not going to obtain that position over someone with pale skin. White men can bitch all they want to about ‘affirmative action’, but that government law has never helped me to get a job.
White people are pissed off – this is why so many of them are on opiates. They can’t take life when it hands them lemons. Instead of making lemonade the way Blacks and other downtrodden minorities have had to do over the years, they throw them away and run crying to the local drug dealer for their heroin, meth, crack, and pain pills. “I was raped at 14 and nobody believed me.” Become a junkie! “I got a knee injury and couldn’t play football anymore.” Become addicted to pain pills! “My boyfriend dumped me for my sister.” Go smoke some crack cocaine! “My son died of SIDS.” No problem, get high on meth and you won’t have to deal with that heartache – at least for as long as the high lasts.
Sometimes I feel that Blacks and Latinos are a stronger group of people than Whites, who seem so weak and pathetic with their whining, moaning, and complaining. That race of humans just cannot accept the fact that they don’t own the world, and they aren’t always going to be on top or making all the money and living in the best neighborhoods and driving late model vehicles and sending their kids to private schools. No one stays on top forever, you know. Eventually, you will be toppled.

Beautiful Places to Visit in America

Yellowstone bison
I love to travel, and one of my favorite areas to visit are mountains – which is why Austria, Germany and Switzerland are my three favorite countries in Europe, especially the areas around Bavaria, the Tyrol, and the Alps. Beaches just don’t do anything for me; I’m not a heliophile, I don’t like skimpy clothing, and I hate water sports – I can’t even dog paddle. I enjoy hiking, and even though I am a bit fearful of heights, I feel okay in the mountains as long as I am not close to the edge. My dream is to build a cozy little cabin high up in the mountains somewhere in Colorado, California, or Washington.

I live in a state that contains the Great Smoky Mountains and I’ve visited the region several times over the years, but never have I ventured to Mt. Mitchell nor have I gone to Clingman’s Dome. I never heard of either place until I was in my 30s, and I’ve been itching to go to either one – or both in the same day if possible – ever since. Alas, it is difficult to find people to travel with – work hours, lack of funds or interest, and compatibility issues abound – but now that I have a companion who loves the outdoors as much as I do, my plan is to visit before we head West in search of our fortunes.
Here are the top 7 – in my opinion – of breathtaking places that one should see before one dies, all here in the United States, and it won’t cost thousands of dollars either, unless you plan to see all 7 in one year! This year, in fact next month if not this weekend, I will be in the Smokies having a blast before winter sets in and traveling in a small car with a smoker becomes an unbearable thought.
Clingman’s Dome
Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee. The sprawling landscape encompasses lush forests and an abundance of wildflowers that bloom year-round. Streams, rivers and waterfalls appear along hiking routes that include a segment of the Appalachian Trail.

While Some Fail, Others Succeed

It’s hard not to think about the world today and how different people truly are from each other, and from one ethnic group to another. It is difficult not to make comparisons, and this is especially true when it comes to the various nations. I never thought about this when I was younger, but by the time I hit my early 30s, I started contemplating certain topics and trying to come up with reasons why this country was backwards while that one was progressive, and why this ethnicity was brilliant, and that one was not.

Take the Japanese, for example. They had the senses bombed out of them by the United States during World War Two; 67 cities were firebombed, including Tokyo, 51% of which was destroyed, while more than 85% of Tokushima was leveled. Toyama was virtually demolished (99%) and 86% of Fukui was brought to rubble. Then the US, with help from allies Great Britain and Canada, dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 & 9 Aug. 1945, killing more than 129,000 people. Yet Japan ranks as one of the wealthiest nations in the world, and the Japanese as a whole are some of the most intelligent Asians. Products made in Japan are far superior to those produced in China, and while I would never care to live anywhere in Asia, if I had to pick one country, it would be Japan.

Askenazi Jews have an average IQ that is even higher than those of Northern Asians. Jews have been run out of nearly every country they have tried to settle in – much in the same manner as the Romany – and have been persecuted in a like manner. Various plagues and diseases have been blamed on them, as well as wars and treaties, not to mention that they are blamed for rejecting Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. Adherents of Christian Identity claim that the Jews are the spawn of Satan and are here to destroy the White race, who are the actual Israelites as spoken of in the Bible. Jews, for all the anti Semitism and the Holocaust and shipping them off to Israel, remain some of the most affluent people in the Western nations, with many doctors, lawyers, film producers & directors, and other media types among their ranks.

Every ethnic group that comes to America succeeds – even those from Sub Saharan Africa where the native IQ is usually rather low. Why is it that these people can emigrate to the States and achieve the American Dream, when so many Americans cannot? Blacks in the US, for instance, are still on the bottom as far as education, finances, and crime. Why is this? How come illegal aliens, who are in the country as lawbreakers, can find employment, buy cars and homes, and live comfortable lives while Blacks are yet on the system? Sure, there are lots of Whites and Hispanics on Welfare as well, but I live in an area where it’s more the norm for a single Black mother to be. Also, illegals cannot receive certain types of state aid, which means you will not find them with Section 8 or SSI or Medicaid. My brother’s ex wife is a very hard worker, and so were most of her family when they lived in the US. I knew of some of them working 2 or 3 jobs to get what they wanted. Yet many Americans refuse to work even one!

Poor Whites make me shake my head. How can you be White and poor in America, or for that matter in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, or Spain? The only reasons for Whites living in poverty in the US are: a) drug addiction; b) alcohol abuse; c) sheer laziness. White guys can blame Affirmative Acton all they want, but there is no good reason why a White in America cannot get a good job. I don’t want to hear or read about your lame excuses because that’s all they are, lame excuses. You don’t need college degrees, you can get by with a high school diploma or GED, same with experience – you don’t need it. I worked for CVS as a pharmacy tech 10 years ago, and there was a young White girl they gave the position of trainer to – at age 20 – simply because she asked for it. Yes, you read that right. She trained the rest of us pharmacy techs during our continual education; we had to ace a certain amount of credits every year.

The children of immigrants realize that what they have here, as opposed to what could have been if their parents had stayed behind in whatever oppressed land they came from, is why so many of them work very hard for what they want. Entitled Americans, be they Black, White, or some other ethnicity, often believe that something is going to be handed to them on a silver platter. A lot of girls are still being raised to thin that they should find a decent man with a high paying job who will take care of them. I have nothing against housewives, but I will be damned if I’m going to sit around and let a man take care of me, because when you let that happen, all the control and power belongs to the man. What if he decided to leave you? What if he abandons you and the kids? What if he beats you?

Black Americans in particular seem to believe that the government, aka the White man, owes them something. I am not against reparations for slavery, but that is so far in the past that modern Blacks might as well forget it. Segregation is far more recent, yet most Blacks in the workforce never had to live under those draconian rules. Free college tuition would be desirable (it might inspire more of us to seek a higher education), but who’s going to pay for that, White taxpayers? Black men are prone to fantasies of becoming 1) hip hop moguls; 2) sports stars; 3) big time drug dealers. Drive through the predominantly Black areas of my city and you will find, more likely than not, young Black guys out on the street corners trying to make a living selling crack cocaine, marijuana and to a lesser extent, heroin. It’s what they would rather do, while blaming their lack of opportunity on a ‘system that is set up to make them fail’.

Instead of playing the Blame Game, people of all ethnicities should just get a job, work hard for what they want, then sit back to enjoy the fruits of their labor. You’re not going to receive handouts all of your life, and what will you do once your parents are gone? Jump into the grave with them because you can longer live rent-free in their basement, and you know you don’t have a job to support your lazy lifestyle nor pay for the taxes, utilities, and upkeep of the house they left you? White Americans, stop blaming Affirmative Action. Black Americans, stop blaming the System. If you don’t want to learn a skill or get an education to lift yourself out of the poverty and lifestyle you find yourself in, who is to blame but you?

Shunning The Mentally Ill

Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in thinking, emotion or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental illnesses are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.

Mental illness is common. In a given year:
nearly one in five (19 percent) U.S. adults experience some form of mental illness
one in 24 (4.1 percent) has a serious mental illness
one in 12 (8.5 percent) has a substance use disorder*

Mental illness is treatable. The vast majority of individuals with mental illness continue to function in their daily lives. – American Psychiatric Association

While homosexuality and lesbianism, once listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as mental illnesses are now, for the most part, wholly accepted by people as ‘normal’, those who suffer from depression, anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, and anorexia, among many others, are still looked down upon as ‘lazy’, ‘shell shocked’, ‘nutty’, and ‘neurotic’. We who are unlucky enough to have to battle mental illness our entire lives – because it is usually a lifelong war that must be fought – are given as much consideration as the homeless, which is to say, barely none, and I am sick of it. I’m tired of feeling that I have to ‘hide’ it in order to live among the ‘normal’ people. How can pastors, ministers, priests, community leaders, politicians, and others, proudly extend a peace offering to the LGBT populace, whilst ignoring a much larger segment of the American society?

I have always been ashamed to seek help for my depression, anxiety, and stress. I would go to see a doctor and/or therapist for months, and then abruptly, stop with the treatment. I would wean myself off of whatever drug I was prescribed and go on with my miserable life. I have been doing this since I was a bratty, introverted 16 year old, and I still do it as a middle aged loner. I have tried Prozac, Paxil, Wellbutrin, Zolft, Cymbalta, Lexapro, and currently take Effexor. I was given Abilify but never took it. None of those medicines helped – the Effexor isn’t helping either. I guess I need mega doses or else I must have a special problem that medication cannot ease.

All of my life, I have felt rejected by not only other people, but by family as well. I always thought that others looked down on me as ‘crazy’, ‘retarded’, ‘stupid’, and possibly even ‘gay’. I never dated while in high school – who the hell would have wanted me, a fat pimply nobody who never spoke to anyone? I had no friends to speak of, and I stayed home all the time when I wasn’t in class. I barely did enough coursework to get by, I didn’t care about myself, and all I wanted to do was lie in bed with no worries. My fantasy world wasn’t as complete as it later became, but it was active and a fantastic way to escape from reality. To this day, I prefer the world in my mind to the real one.

Those with mental disorders often cannot help themselves. There are some of us whose illnesses are so severe that we must be either hospitalized or under the guidance of mental health advocates, or else we would be out on the streets, homeless and our illnesses untreated. It is truly sad the way a lot of us are regarded, especially by law enforcement, whose main motto seems to be ‘to hurt and to kill’ rather than ‘to serve and to protect’. People who are very sick tend to also be quite poor, and I’m here to remind you, the poor have no voice in this country, nor any other. Everything is for the wealthy and the middle class; everyone else gets short shrift, as if our lives, our rights, and our health, do not matter. Where are the people marching for us in the streets of major cities?

I hope to become better so that I can be that advocate for those of us with mental illness. I will show the world that it is possible to live a productive, positive life as a fully functioning member of society even with PTSD. I know that I can do this. I must shake off the remnants of my fear, my shame, and my feelings of dejection so that I can have the life that I was meant to have. I read a very inspiring post on social media yesterday. While I was sitting there with the TV on for background noise, in a funk and feeling not so much as sorry for myself as disgusted, a post re: art caught my eye. I read it and was amazed. Here was a person who had been diagnosed with a disabling condition and though she had become extremely depressed as she could no longer work due to the affliction, she decided one day to go back to her art in order to supplement her husband’s income. It took nearly a decade, but she had finally reached that goal of being able to live off of her earnings from her jewelry craft.

I made a pledge right then that I would do the same. I threw off the yoke of self pity, trying to make ends meet with online work and SSDI, and plan to get started this week on reviving my painting. It’s way past time. Besides…if I don’t do it, who will? Why waste my talent wallowing in misery when I could be out there making money, even if it’s only what used to be called ‘chump change’? It will be money I earned with my own hands, and I am excited as hell. That post was meant to be seen by my eyes, and I was so happy I saw it that I thanked the artist for posting it and wished her good luck, and that’s something I never do on social media. My artwork will be my way of bringing mental illness out of the darkness and into the light, exposed in such a manner that people won’t be able to help but be impressed and eager to learn how they can extend aid to those who struggle with mental disorders.

Brown Skin Viewed As a Threat

I am glad I’m not a man, and I am especially grateful not to be a Black man in this country. I fear for the lives of my brother, cousins, and nephew every time they must venture out in public, because I know that Black life in America isn’t as valued as White life. Blacks are viewed as a threat, same as brown skinned Hispanics, and that is something Americans have to deal with because it has always been a part of our society, and always will be.

One trait of Whites that really pisses me off is how, whenever there is something about race and crime or whatnot on social media, they will immediately use Black criminality as an example even when they are supposedly defending Black people, or opposing racism. Then there are those that harp on Affirmative Action, always a White male (probably with a useless college degree and still living in his parents’ basement because he’s too sorry to find a job because he’d rather play video games). He will bring up Blacks and women benefiting from Affirmative Action, but never Asians, Hispanics, Muslims, Native Americans, or the disabled. The biggest group that has any advantages as far as Affirmative Action are White women, particularly when it comes to college admissions. No one in my family has ever been given special privileges nor higher status or promotions due to Affirmative Action. Sometimes I even wonder if the program still exists.
Yakuza members
I don’t understand why most police officers assume that, when they see a Black or Hispanic person, that said person is going to a) be violent/confrontational; b) carry a gun; c) have a lengthy record. There are, believe it or not, such people as non criminal Blacks and Hispanics just as there are Asians with criminal records. (Asia is full of Triads and other Mafia-like gangs – such as the Japanese Yakuza) yet the way White people tell it, Asians are the most law-abiding, least violent, and smartest group of people on earth.) Michael Bennett, defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks and well-known protester of the national anthem before football games, was recently detained by Las Vegas police after he attended the Mayweather – McGregor fight last month.
According to Bennett: As he was leaving a party at the casino and heading home, he said he heard what sounded like gunshots. While he and others ran for cover, Las Vegas police officers pointed guns at him “for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time,” he wrote. One pointed a gun at his head while another pinned him to the ground before they handcuffed him and placed him in a squad car, he said. They released him upon learning who he was, but left him feeling as though “the system had failed me,” he wrote on Twitter. The Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that officers detained Bennett for 10 minutes and released him. They were responding to a call of battery and assault with a gun that had turned into an active shooter situation, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Wednesday. Based on the information they had at the time, they believed Bennett may have been involved in the shooting and pursued him, McMahill said. Given the circumstances, McMahill said he saw “no evidence that race played a role in this incident.”
 
In his account, Bennett said that as he lay on the ground, complying with his commands not to move, the officer placed his gun near his head and warned him that if he moved he would “blow my (expletive) head off.” While he was “terrified and confused by what was taking place,” a second officer came over and “forcefully jammed his knee into my back making it difficult for me to breathe,” he wrote. “They then cinched the handcuffs on my wrists so tight that my fingers went numb,” he continued. “The officers’ excessive use of force was unbearable,” Bennett continued. “I felt helpless as I lay there on the ground handcuffed facing the real-life threat of being killed. All I could think of was ‘I’m going to die for no other reason than I am black and my skin color is somehow a threat.'” – CNN

Incredible, eh? Actually, I am not surprised one bit. I was not really shocked by the ‘child molestation’ charges leveled at the late Michael Jackson, I was not stunned by O. J. Simpson being charged with murdering his White ex wife (I was, however, stunned by the acquittal), and I am not dumbfounded by the allegations of rape against Bill Cosby. Whenever a Black man is involved in some sort of crime – whether it’s his fault or not – the White Establishment is going to do its utmost to bring him down. It burns Whitey to the core that so many of us have ‘made it’ and use our positions in life to try to elevate other PoC, or to bring the plight of PoC to the media’s attention. One reason Spike Lee is so unpopular is because he refuses to kiss the asses of the Powers that be of the White Establishment.
Brown skinned peoples should be looked upon as a threat to the livelihood of others. There are bad apples in every bunch, and probably more of them in the melanin-deficient crowd than any other.
This frightening skin color!

Race, Television & White Murderers

I am damn sick and fricking tired of hearing about Scott Peterson, O. J. Simpson, Natalee Holloway, Drew Peterson, and the Menendez brothers. Now they are bringing up Chandra Levy again, who has been dead since 2001! Then there’s Steve Avery, Casey Anthony, and Richard Glossip. What makes these people so special of all the thousands of murderers and victims out there? Well, one is the skin color and race: all of them, with the exception of O. J., are White. Second, some of them come from families with money, so they are able to keep the stories of their slain kinfolk in the news. Third, O. J. is widely believed to have killed his White ex wife and her White male friend, so he’s going to make headlines until he’s dead or humanity dies out, whichever comes first.

If Natalee Holloway hadn’t been drunk when she disappeared, she’d probably be alive today. When young women go out drinking at bars, bad things generally happen to them. You are not in full control of your senses while under the influence of alcohol. That’s a fact. I never go out to bars or nightclubs, I never get drunk because that’s for losers in my opinion, and I don’t smoke anything or take drugs of any kind other than the Trazadone needed to battle my insomnia. If you allow chemicals to control you, how are you going to remain on top of things? That’s how you get raped or beaten and robbed or killed, becoming intoxicated on something.

I am frustrated with Americans and their prejudices, and this goes for all the ethnic groups, not just Whites (I will confess though, that they are numero uno when it comes to institutional racism, White supremacy, and other forms of discrimination – though they love to whine about Affirmative Action these days). It is simply a fact of Western society that White people are the best, the most attractive, the superior, the most intelligent, the race that created empires and dynasties and civilizations. If you would read the sample chapters – as well as the posts – on the March of The Titans website, you will discover that the author of this ‘Complete History of The White Race’ is a typical White Supremacist, and the fact that he was born in Africa is perhaps part of the reason he is. Apparently, he lives in the UK now but that country surely doesn’t lack for racists either.

White peoples’ faith in their own specialness and eminence is a major part of the race problem as I see it. They are brought up to believe that being White is a blessing bestowed upon them by God, and that is why they cannot and will not see reason where race relations are concerned. What’s worse is that many other races and ethnicities also have come under the spell of this fallacy. They actually feel that darker skin is a curse, and they do whatever they can to lighten their complexions, using all sorts of bleach creams and even laser skin whitening. Did this help Michael Jackson? Is it helping Lil Kim and Lark Voorhees and Tempest Bledsoe, or all the other celebrities that have bleached their skins?
Did marrying a White woman, becoming the first Black to join a certain country club, and having White friends help O. J. any? Obviously not, because every couple of months, they are promoting crime programs about him and those old murders from the 1990s he was acquitted of. White people are not going to be happy with that verdict ever, and this is one reason why O. J. has spent the last decade in prison for armed robbery. Hell, I have heard of murderers receiving less time behind the walls than that, and they took somebody’s life. How about the White guys on Death Row they are trying to save, Richard Glossip and Scott Peterson? They will not stop until they get those killers out of prison, period. Scott didn’t do it, they whine. An innocent man is behind bars, they sob. Another man murdered poor Laci and her unborn son, they cry. Well, what about my great great uncle Pringle Williams, who was electrocuted by the state of Georgia for raping a White woman, all on the say so of jealous Blacks?
TV is a media outlet that is fully Caucasian owned and operated, aside from Oprah Winfrey, the Icon worshiped by many fools as some sort of Goddess Incarnate. Most of the movies, programs, and shows are about Whites, for Whites, and that’s it. The majority of Black shows are comedies, as if laughing at people acting silly is all Black people care about – the rest are about criminals, like drug dealers turning into hip hop moguls. You rarely see shows featuring other PoC and when you do, they are usually ‘tokens’ and are involved with White men (Asians) or cast in a role that is beyond stereotypical (Indians in IT positions, or as medical professionals; Hispanics as ‘gangsters’). Where do you see the most Blacks? Honestly, The First 48. I don’t know why this is so, but I see more Black and Hispanic criminals with that show than I do on Live PD. I wonder why?
TLC is one of the Whitest networks out there. Nearly every reality show that they promote is about Whites – Outdaughtered, Little People/Big World, Sister Wives, I am Jazz, My Big Fat Fabulous Life, The Little Couple. and now, Meet The Putmans. You rarely see People of Color on TLC shows which is strange for a network that is owned by a Jew – usually, they are all for diversity. The Food Network is the same, with cooking shows by White people, some of whom can’t even truly cook (The Pioneer Woman comes to mind); the only times you will see PoC is on Chopped, where they are usually on the Chopping block within the first round or so. Women don’t get a fair shake there either, which is why I stopped watching that show more than 2 years ago. I don’t even miss it.
