Sharpton prepares for outrage over Trayvon Martin shooting verdict

Leave a comment

This is from BizPac Review.

Al The Race Baiter  Sharpton is trying to become relevant

by trying to talk up a riot if George Zimmerman is acquitted.

It is time for Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson to crawl back

into the sewer from where they first crawled out.

 

The race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton is already laying the groundwork for outrage if the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial doesn’t goes his way.

On his MSNBC show, Sharpton used an interview with Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the family of Trayvon Martin, to question whether the jury of five white women and one Hispanic woman seated Thursday can reach a fair verdict in the case of a white man accused of murder in the death of a black teenager.

alsharptonI would hope that we get fairness,” Sharpton said. “I think, though, we must deal with what the obvious is in terms of what the county demographics are, what is on the jury. But we don’t think people can be fair or unfair based on who they are. But we think the system ought to always be questioned.”

In Sharpton parlance, “questioned” means impugning one of the jurors in advance for the crime of having had a concealed weapons permit and mischaracterizing protests in Sanford that took place after the Martin shooting as “riots.”

“I was down there and helped organize some of the protests asking for a trial,” Sharpton said. “I never saw rioting and never heard of rioting when I was there.”

Crump agrees, then ludicrously suggests the possibility of a riot by Zimmerman’s supporters if he is convicted.

“The question I have,” he said, “… they come back with a just verdict holding George Zimmerman guilty of killing Trayvon Martin, will the other guys act right?”

If there are riots after the Zimmerman verdict, whatever it is, neither Sharpton nor Crump seriously think they will be the work of Zimmerman’s supporter.

And Sharpton knows how this stuff works. He’s spent decades fanning the flames of racial violence – literally in at least one case.

He’s just prepping for another round.

The Hispanic States of America?

This is from Godfather Politics.

This is food thought.

I am sure they are a force to be reckoned with.

According to Mark Hugo Lopez, Associate Director of the Pew Research Hispanic Center:

“The United States is actually the second-largest Hispanic nation, just behind Mexico. That means the U.S. has more Latinos than Peru or Colombia or Argentina…There’s beginning to be an identity that is unique to the U.S. that is a pan-Hispanic identity, but one that also highlights the many heritages that those in the U.S. have from all of Latin America.”

Lopez pointed out that the major area of growth in Hispanic numbers comes from those born here in the US.  My question is how many of those born here were from legal or illegal parents.  Once the child is born here, they automatically become a citizen, even if the parents are not legal citizens.

Start with 15 million illegals.  If half are female and get pregnant and have at least 2 children, you suddenly have 15 million children that are citizens.  However, I know very few Hispanics who only have one or two children.  A many of them have 4 or more, so now suddenly you’re looking at 30 million or more legal Hispanics from illegal parents.  Add that to the millions of Hispanics that are legal citizens and in a couple short generations, you have the second largest Hispanic nation in the world.

If you recall, statistics indicate that Hispanics will become the majority ethnic group in California by the end of this summer.  Their numbers will surpass those of blacks, whites, Orientals and American Indians.

The number of Hispanics is having an influence in American culture and politics.  Lopez said that there will be 50,000 – 60,000 Latinos turn 18 every month and this will definitely have an impact on American culture. They tend to be more liberal in their political views and side with Democrats more than Republicans.  As more of them get involved in politics at all levels of government, it will make a significant difference in the future.

 

Like it or not, Hispanics are going to play a much greater role in America’s future.  With the birth rates in general declining in the US over the past couple of years, the escalated birth rates of Hispanics, their impact on American culture and politics may come sooner than some expect.

It always bothered me when I lived in Arizona to see Cinco de Mayo (May 5th – Mexican Independence Day) to be stretched out to a three day celebration and July 4th be relegated to afternoon picnics and nighttime fireworks, all on one day.  Just like when we lost Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthdays to one President’s Day to allow for holiday for the black culture, will we lose another holiday to the Hispanic population?

We truly are on the way to becoming the United States of Mexico, aren’t we?

The Legacy-of-Slavery Excuse Debunked

Leave a comment

This is from the Patriot Update.

The folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center are nuts.

They make some of the most outrageous claims about race.

I like the BS line about the burden of the legacy of slavery.

The Great Society is the problem with black families.

The black families are fatherless.

A local school district in Florida is being sued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) because more of its black students as a percentage of the student population are disciplined than white students.  The SPLC claims this is because black students are unfairly singled out for punishment.  Apparently no one at the SPLC thought to ask the obvious question: Could it be that more black students break the rules than white students?  After all, even a cursory examination of the data state or nationwide will show that absenteeism, tardiness, poor grades, high dropout rates, drug use, and violent crime are higher among black students than white, Asian, or Hispanic students.

However, liberals and their leftwing organizations tend to ignore data that does not support their preconceived notions or fit their political agendas.  Liberals simply ignore the data on absenteeism, tardiness, bad grades, dropout rates, drug use, and crime for black students, and when they cannot ignore it they have a ready-made excuse to explain it away: the legacy of slavery.  According to liberal apologists, black students who perform poorly in school do so because they still carry the burden of slavery in their genes.

But the “legacy” excuse quickly breaks down because there are plenty of young black students who not only perform well in school, but out perform their white, Asian, and Hispanic counterparts, and these high achievers carry the same so-called legacy burden as other black students.  A widely-recognized example of such a high achiever is Dr. Ben Carson, the world-renowned brain surgeon.   As a young black student from the inner city, Dr. Carson had all of the disadvantages that liberals use to excuse black students who perform poorly. But Carson refused to make excuses.  Instead he studied hard, persevered, and transformed his life.  Now he spends his time saving lives.

The hard truth that liberals refuse to accept is that black students who do poorly in school do so for the same reasons as other students who do poorly: because they do not take school seriously.  If they go to school at all, they misbehave, skip classes, and refuse to cooperate with teachers, complete assignments, do homework, or study.  And if this kind of behavior is not bad enough, these marginal students use peer pressure, intimidation, and beatings to hold back other black students who are serious about school. One of the most dangerous things a young black student can do in some schools is work hard to succeed.

Conservative economist Walter Williams had this to say about the legacy-of-slavery excuse: “A ‘legacy of slavery’ surely cannot explain problems among blacks, unless we assume it skips whole generations.  In my book ‘Race and Economics’ (Hoover Press, 2011), I cite studies showing that in New York in 1925, 85 percent of black households were two-parent households.  In 1880 in Philadelphia, three-quarters of black families were composed of two parents and children…Both during slavery and as late as 1920, a black teenage girl raising a child without a man present was rare.”

There is a strong correlation between the school performance of black students—as well as other students—and their home situation.  The point Professor Williams makes in his book is that the modern welfare state has crippled the black family and rendered it fatherless.  Consequently, too many young blacks are growing up with no father to provide expectations, hold them accountable, and to guide them in achieving meeting expectations.  I agree with Dr. Williams, about the effect of the welfare state on the black family and its corresponding effect on the school performance of black students. But even a less-than-desirable home situation should not be used as an excuse for thumbing one’s nose at education.  In fact, it should just make black students—as well as white, Asian, and Hispanic students—even more determined to use school as the means of breaking the cycle of welfare and throwing off the shackles of dependency and despair.
