The term “people of color“ exists to distill diversity in favor of excluding one specific group.
The term “people of color” has gained quite a bit of popularity among the intersectional groups on the left. Now, for those of you who have studied history at any level, it should immediately strike you how similar it sounds to the old racist term “colored people”.
This term comes on the heels of a well-known group, black lives matter, pushing racial tension and even going so far as to get some colleges to segregate their dorms based on race. It’s OK to advertise events that say “no white people allowed”. It’s even OK to be deeply racist, and have it documented over the course of five years, and still get hired by the New York Times. It’s OK because it’s against white people.
See, there is a common thread these days: white people are the devil, and everybody needs to fight against it. The term people of color works to simplify that. The term doesn’t just encompass black people. “People of color” can mean black, Mexican, Asian, Indian, Native American, or Polynesian. It means anything but white. It is not an inclusive term, it is a specifically exclusive term. It allows the people of earth to combine into two teams: White, and not White.
That’s the point. That is the whole point of that term existing.
Here’s the rub: have you ever met and spent a lot of time with a Ugandan, a Kenyan, and a Jamaican? I have. The word black doesn’t even encompass those three people. There is a world of difference between those three cultures, and to boil them down to the word black would be an insult. To further boil them down to “people of color” would be far worse. To the intersectionals, though, the Ugandan and the Jamaican are exactly the same as the Chinese and the Mexican, because they are not the white devil.
On that note, you would be hard-pressed to find a Pakistani who is the same as an Iranian. Find a person from Sweden who is the same as a person from Arizona. Here’s one for you; find an Inuit who is the same as an Apache.
It is an insult to all of these people’s diverse cultures to boil them down into any sort of general language.
The sanitization and changing and generalizing of language is always used to control. They say that it is used to be inclusive, or to spare certain people’s feelings, but when it really comes down to it, it is about control.
Do not be controlled. Do not be divided. Beyond that, don’t even begin to suggest that someone from Kenya is the same thing as a Native American, other than being human.
In the year 2016, when political spirits were running high and anyone associated with the Trump name was immediately called a racist, I developed a theory. My theory was that these people who were so desperate for Hillary Clinton to get into the White House were actually projecting.
Now, for those of you who don’t know, projection is a term, a psychological term, for someone who is so ashamed of an act that they are committing or so desperate to get attention away from the office that they are committing that they actually accuse someone else of the same act.
Some people will recognize this in the form of relationships. Your significant other will cheat on you, and accuse you of cheating on them.
It is truly one of the most common psychological hacks. Right up there with gaslighting.
So, the way my theory goes, the Democrat party and all of their followers have been racist since the beginning. They are attempting, however, to paint the Republican Party as racist. They are not doing this in an attempt to remove themselves from racism, but instead to distract from their own acts of racism.
Don’t believe me? You might, after watching Occupy ICE protesters in this past week.
I assure you, that while people on the right keep their mouth shut and obfuscate exit polls by not telling the truth about who they voted for, the left is becoming more bold in there racism, identity politics, totalitarianism, and fascism.
Little is hidden anymore. If you are not with them, you are against them.
So, GQ magazine has decided to name Collin Kaepernick their Citizen of The Year. I can understand why they would want to do that. Their sales figures are in the crapper compared to what they should be and what they have been in the past. They have no cultural relevance anymore. Grabbing a bit of controversy will get them some much-needed attention, and sell a few million issues. That being said, is it really GQ magazine’s place to be doing something like this? This is a deeply disingenuous action on their part.
It Gets The People Going
Colin Kaepernick has been a source of controversy since he began taking a knee during the national anthem at the beginning of each NFL football game. His reason for doing it was to protest the high number of black people being shot by cops. Years of FBI statistics and data will show that there is not a high number of black people being shot by cops, and in fact it is more likely that a white person will be shot by a cop then a black person. Statistically speaking, of course. That being said, Colin’s next move, after not being rehired in the NFL, was to attempt to sue his way into a job. That has, as yet, proved fruitless. And rightly so. His penchant for creating controversy, however, has not appeared to die down. From his racist girlfriend’s tweets to his friendship with the venomous Linda Sarsour, to advocating for the regime in Cuba, to applauding Marxist thug Che Guevara, to declaring American police officers are “pigs”, to supporting convicted terrorist Assata Shakur, to going 1-10 as a starter in 2016, and going 2-6 as a starter in 2015, he shows his proclivity towards being both controversial and relatively useless.
It seems an odd choice then, with so many better people on this planet such as Tom Hanks or Gary Sinise, or Larry Elder or a plethora of other more qualified individuals, that they would pick Colin Kaepernick as their Citizen of The Year.
The Minstrel Show
That is, until you realize, that while simply not liking Colin Kaepernick is, these days, considered an act of racism, parading him around as an Al Jolson-esque minstrel to get attention is not. The only reason GQ magazine or any other publication would want to put Colin Kaepernick in their front line would be simply for attention, which GQ desperately needs.
To further this, I’d like to do a little experiment. Let’s go ahead and Google GQ magazine’s key board members, and then go to images.
Even in group photos, where people are milling about in the background, not a single black person can be seen. It’s an interesting contrast to the virtue signaling that they are doing with their Citizen of The Year issue.
I’m going to close this article abruptly, saying this: pay attention to what people are doing, not what they are saying. It has been my experience in the past few years to see and make a note of the fact that when people are virtue signaling, it is by and large and immediate sign that they are guilty of what they are talking about. It’s like the girlfriend who constantly accuses you of cheating, because she herself is cheating.
Don’t believe the hype.
Charlie Hebdo, famous french magazine known for its contentious covers, has recently added Texas to its rancorous register. Their bitterness and world-weariness seeps through the humor on every cover they produce; making clear that they are tired of fringe groups of insane people running the asylum. I, for one, fully agree.
Their most recent cover comes on the heels of one of the worst-but most well-managed disasters to hit the United States: Hurricane Harvey. It sounds like a name for a small rodent, a pet that keeps getting loose and up to shenanigans. In reality, however, Harvey has dumped nearly twenty five trillion gallons onto Texas.
Horseshoe Falls, the biggest waterfall in Niagara falls, would have to constantly dump onto Texas for nine months to equal twenty five trillion gallons, according to an article from the New York Times.
So, Charlie says all the Nazis have been drowned.
With all of the focus by the media on race relations in our country over the past few years, with all of the furor(fuhrer?) over the Nazis in Charlottesville, one would think that this country does not allow for mixing or interaction between races at all. It has truly become exaggerated to that point, not helped by BLM, who has actually segregated blacks and whites on some college campuses.
How infuriated they must be at not being able to paint such a picture in Texas, where race has all but been erased in the face of humanity. Men and women of all race and religion have come together to form one group dedicated to helping everyone affected.
When the flood waters have receded, and people return to their ruined homes to begin the process of rebuilding their lives, I hope they remember the spirit they felt during the disaster, when one man was the same as another, when everyone was simply American.
I was at the Trump rally in Phoenix last night. I ended up getting there quite late, roughly 7 o’clock. The last few people who were going to get into the convention center were entering. The sidewalks were crowded, with protesters on one side of the street and Trump supporters on the other. The streets themselves were relatively clear, thanks to the phoenix police. Knowing that there was no chance of getting in, I wandered the streets and enjoy the sights and sounds of the throng on both sides of the street.
Amid cries of “Fuck Trump!”, which has become the standard battle cry for the erudite leftists when they find they have no actual argument, there were a group of BLM members that were playing a rap song on a boombox that also featured the term “fuck Trump”. A highly imaginative group on that side of the street.
Meanwhile, on the conservative side of the street, there were discussions going on as to what was being said by Donald Trump inside of the building, as many people were streaming it on their phones while they stood on the sidewalk.
There was one guy wearing a white wife beater that was admonishing the conservatives by naming downtrodden communities like Harlem and Compton. Y’all wouldn’t understand, he said. Y’all don’t know, he said. How little this man does now. I grew up in a place like that. Unlike him, however, I didn’t sit around for decades feeling sorry for myself. I decided that my lot in life was not the hand I was dealt. I, therefore, did not sympathize with this man.
I saw police on horses wearing riot gear, and police on the ground wearing the same. It was far too hot outside for what they were wearing. And yet, it was necessary, due to the situation that could pop off at any moment. When Trump’s address ended, The attendees, obviously conservatives and Trump supporters, filed past the protesters, with mere feet of space and a thin line of police tape separating the two groups.
I was prepared for a fight at one point, as a man who had his little girl with him who couldn’t possibly have been above ten years old, was harassed and shouted at by the protesters with a level of profanity that a girl that young should not have to listen to. Her father was obviously perturbed and offended, as he flipped the bird at the group. Two protesters broke off from the rest and began to follow him and his daughter. I followed as well, prepared to put them both on the ground if they attacked the man and his daughter. Eventually they backed off and went back to their group, to resume shouting at the passing conservatives.
While I wandered, I made sure to listen to the conversations going on. Something that struck me was how everyone on the liberal side of the street seems to be looking for a solution to their problems that didn’t involve actually solving them. They wanted somebody to point the finger at, someone to blame. Not themselves, though. Clearly, nobody can be responsible for their own life and decisions. They were born poor, and raised by single mothers. They can’t possibly have any responsibility in this world.
There were a small group of BLM members that were trying to blame Whitey for every problem they ever had, but they mainly kept to themselves.
There was one point during which a very large and muscular man wearing a trump shirt passed by. The protesters became conspicuously quiet at that moment. They who are so keen on violence to spread their word, but only toward those who are unlikely to hit back. It was very telling.
Among the people wandering around observing was a man who was dressed in furs and wearing a spirit hood. He appeared to be a centrist, and was trying to let both sides know that they were wrong in opposing each other.
Anyways, once all of the attendees left, and the only people remaining where the conservatives and protesters of various ilk on opposite sides of the street, the police deployed teargas to disburse the crowds. I don’t blame them one bit. I’m sure that thousands of people on either side of the street did not have work to get to in the morning, and would’ve gladly stayed there all night carousing, arguing, and fighting. In that heat, in the clothing they had to wear, with dehydration weighing on them, I fully understand why the police did what they did. I also fully support it. They had families to get home to. They were tired, and had beds they wanted to collapse into.
In short, the evening was relatively uneventful, compared to what was expected. Phoenix showed that it, as a collective, has a little more class than some of the other cities we’ve seen. I’m proud to live here, and look forward to seeing other cities live up to what I saw last night.
There are a lot of people out there blaming President Trump for the race riots happening in Charlottesville. It’s sickening that everyone’s looking for a scapegoat when the real problem is within themselves. Whether white or black, racists filled the streets of Charlottesville.
Did we blame Obama when Micah Johnson gunned down five cops specifically because he hated white people?
No, we didn’t.
Did we blame Obama for all of the BLM fueled riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Charlotte?
No, we didn’t.
Now, I will admit, there was a vocal group of white people that were constantly blaming Obama for things like that, but the rest of us white, black, brown, or other, all knew that those white people were racists.
Why, then, do we have so many black people that are otherwise moderate and nonracist going ahead and blaming Trump and all white people for what happened in Charlottesville? Why is the singer Lorde, among other celebrities, trying to point the finger at an entire race of people? Why is everyone virtue signaling?
We do have a race problem in our country. It is one that did not exist before president Obamas eight years in office. It was not caused by Barack Obama. It was caused by racist black groups, fueled by money and words from the left. It has been proven time and time again that protesters have been bussed in, and that the money to pay for the buses came from organizations run by George Soros, among other people.
The racial divide is not caused by members of the various races, it is caused by the leftist government in their attempts to discredit the right and to put any non-white race down.
Remember, the KKK used to be nothing but Democrats. Planned Parenthood was started by Margaret Sanger, who was a known eugenicist, and wanted the extermination of black people. She knew that abortions would be a great way to do that. The government, specifically the left government, wants to keep black people poor so that they are unhappy and kill each other. Look what happens to black Republicans. They are treated as pariahs by their own communities, but they achieve great success in the long run.
Now, you might notice, a lot of these people are not liked by their community. They are called Uncle Toms, and accused of helping the white man.
How about this? White racists are shitty. Black racists are shitty. Mexican racists are shitty. All racists of all colors are shitty.
We have two legs, two arms, walk upright, speak complex languages, bleed red, and we are at the top of the food chain because of how freaking awesome we are. Why are we still stupid enough to think that we are different just because of color?
It’s our ideologies that make us different.
One ideology in particular that I would like to point out is the left. All of it. They are still just as racist as they were. Hell, Hillary Clinton admired a former KKK leader. Her campaign was called “I’m With Her”. How selfish is that? She made it obvious right up front that she was doing this for her, not the country, not for anyone else. Just for her. While Donald Trump, a brilliant businessman, makes a fool of himself on the national stage, he still felt it was his duty to make America great again.
And what do we get in response to make America great again? We get people, on the left of course, saying that America was never great. Excuse me? It was never great? Then leave. We don’t need people like you. We don’t need losers. This is a country where you win or lose on your own merits. It’s called a meritocracy. The left calls it Ableism. Communists, socialists, and anarchists need to get the hell out of here and go to someplace where those views are acceptable. Here, winners win and losers lose. Period.
In the long run, I hope it is the racists of any race, and the people who put money and time into a race war who lose.
The rest of us just need to move forward and leave them behind.
