If you’re easily offended or have a hard time dealing with reality, let the last sentence you read of this post, be this one.
I consider myself a a pretty conservative guy. I am for people being able to keep as much of the money they work for, without having it taken to give to those who don’t want to work themselves. I believe that the United States should be strong on defense. I am an advocate for every persons right to bear arms. I am pro-life. Voted for W… TWICE! Is this not the GOP’s definition of a conservative? One would think so.
See, I’m Black, and this seems to be a PROBLEM. But they’ll tell you it is not.
Now, those in leadership will tell you that we’re all created equal in God’s eyes. I believe that to be the case. But it isn’t practiced very much in the Republican Party, or anwhere else for that matter. Blacks can’t be FULL members unless we agree not to rock the boat on discriminatory issues. To be Black and a full card-carrying member, one must agree not to ever comment on how lopsided things still are in this country when it comes to how we are continued to be treated. Nice try on using Obama’s being elected as the end to all of that. Post-Racial my ASS. In a lot of ways, race relations have become a lot worse under this administration. He is partly to blame. He too knows, that there are things he isn’t allowed to say. HE can’t even be seen in public with us. Did he speak to the NAACP? Hell naw. Obama sent Biden because he knew better. He can’t afford the backlash for being too closely associated with us either. He ain’t even SAID the word black in 3 1/2 years! I will get to him at a later time though.
It’s time to speak on the real culprits…
As I’m writing this, I’m watching Herman Cain give an interview to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Cain was asked why 0% of Blacks polled last week, said they would be voting for Romney? He said it’s because when the poll was conducted, the Black people were working, and weren’t available to answer the phone. Really?
Toby– I mean, Mr. Cain knows what happens when Black members answer a race question about the GOP….
Y’all remember that whole Rick Perry/ “Niggerhead Ranch” thing? Of course you do. The Hermanator got in more trouble for being offended by it, than Rick Perry did for any of it. He broke the first rule of ‘GOP Club’; “Don’t talk about racism, Negro. EVER.” Former GOP Chairman Michael Steele found the hard way, as well. He was punished for having a REAL conversation with comedian DL Hughley and Chuck D on CNN. They heard it, and POOF! That nigga was OUT OF THERE! They don’t play. He’s been on his best behavior ever since.
I have NO desire to be “One of the good ones”. See, G. Gordon Liddy used to be a mentor of mine. He is about as conservative as it gets. I hung out with him on a few occasions. He was always welcoming to me. I can’t say the same for the people he had me around. (Marsha Blackburn and Steve Gill, to name a couple) I felt as out of place as Sarah Palin would be at a MENSA convention. They didn’t SAY “Hey, you’re not welcome here, darkie!”, but it was something I could feel. I’m no idiot. That’s the same feeling the current leaders of the Rebublican Party, and especially the Tea-Bagger fringe, want to convey to us. It’s fine, though. Fuck y’all.
Every 4 years is another opportunity missed. A chance to get another voting block behind them is completely butchered. It used to be that they’d just igonore us altogether. I know, because I’ve BEEN there to witness it. Things have become more crucial now. Now the platform is used to show the real base that they know how to deal with “The Negroes”. Y’all saw Mitt Romney’s speech at the NAACP. It was nothing more than grandstanding for his base. I’m sure he got back to his campaign headquarters and said, “You think I talked bad enough to them to ignite the Rednecks who aren’t yet sure I’m down for the cause?” Let me just say, Mitt, you passed with flying colors. Ain’t that right, Larry?
Now I must say that I think there are some good people in the GOP, but not nearly enough. There are those who don’t subscribe to any of the things I’ve charged Republicans with. But the problem is, the only thing worse to this particular group of White people than “niggers” is to be considered a “nigger lover”. (“Liberal” for short) These people let all this shit go on without saying a WORD to the guilty parties. This makes them worse than the offenders in my eyes, because it means they’re cowards. They’re afraid of being outcast by their family and friends, and I guess I can’t blame ‘em… But I have no use for them either. Then there are those who continue to boldly and categorically deny all of what I’ve claimed here. Not only is this dishonest, but it is also condescending. Admitting that there are problems within your party on race issues isn’t always a personal admission of guilt. Learn to know the difference. Nobody is crying wolf here. Shit is real. I know it. You know it, and most importantly, THEY KNOW IT.
I don’t really expect anything to change. I just thought I would take time to say some things that many peoplee would like to say, but are too afraid to. I’m not. I just want y’all (The Right) to know that we recognize game. Stop telling us to listen to Ron Christie and Crystal Wright, or worse Black Rebublican on Twitter , but at the same time tell us we’re being led around by our noses by Black Dems. Stop it. Do what you will, and think of me whatever you like. Call me “Liberal” all you want. All I was doing was trying to go get some shoes…
P.S. For those of you who continue to say, “We have to get our country back!” If y’all do get it “back”, I hope you take IT and you’re warped view of how it should be, and jam it up your fucking asses.
