With the election of America’s first black President, most people (myself included) thought that we were entering a post-racial America.
Could the progressives of today who think literally everything and everyone is racist continue to claim we live in a racist country, when we live in a country that Democratically elected a black man to office? Not only that – there were a larger percentage of Americans who voted for Obama for the sole reason that he’s black, than voted against him for the sole reason that he’s black. In other words, we live in a country where being black helps you when running for office, on net balance.
And yet race relations have degraded – mainly thanks to the far-left, particularly groups like Black Lives Matter. They’re not going to let racism die – because it’s in their best interest to keep racism alive and well.
Freed slave Booker T. Washington put it best when he wrote in 1914 that “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Prophetic – and he didn’t even have an Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Shaun King, or DeRay McKesson to make such an observation from.
Look at the polls, and you’ll see that race relations are at the lowest point that they’ve been since 1992 – which was the year of the L.A. race riots.
And what have the results been? As Americas Freedom Fighters reports:
Investigators found that this event was planned on social media, with a call to meet up at the Pearl Theater in PHILADELPHIA, PA.
Too many showed up to get into the theater, so they decided to split up into groups and go attack white people and steal what they could.
Students, police officers and a police horse were involved up in the chaos. Video shows the mob and the violent attacks near Temple’s campus.
More than 150 teens were involved in the attacks, they split up and went in groups of 20-30 then fell upon the campus around 8:30 pm. The mobs continued to attack students for 2 hours before they were finally dispersed by Police.
Of course, this was an act of black on white crime, so don’t expect to hear about this on MSNBC anytime soon.
