Parenting While Black

So in Houston, this Mother was charged with child abandonment when said kids were never out of sight.

To add insult to injury, she was there conducting a job interview.  (And she got the job.)

This “stranger danger” and “precious snowflakes” shit is far, far out of hand for all races.  Those kids were never in danger.  There aren’t perverts waiting around every corner for a chance to snatch a kid away.  These kids weren’t neglected — they were just fed before they went out to play.  They weren’t even outside.

She was doing all the things that a parent should be doing, and got shit for it.  The thing is, white parents also get shit for this — but they don’t get arrested.  This mother, however, is black.

A different story says that a cop found the kids crying and alone, and took them to the mall office.  Still another says that someone called the cops because the kids were alone.  Given that all reporting sucks (and all cops lie) who knows what the truth is?  The fact remains, however, that she still should not have been arrested.

What the hell is wrong with this cop?  When I was a kid, you didn’t get dragged away and locked in the backroom if you lost your parents.  The cop helped you find your parents.  He sure as shit didn’t arrest them when he found them, white or black.

What kind of chickenshit busybody calls the cops to come get a crying child instead of going to help the child?  How callous and cowardly an asshole are you that you won’t take the time to console a crying child, but you will call 911?

Shitheels abound in this story, and they are entirely representative of the society that we have created.


But only when they are ended by a white person.

If a black man is murdered by a carload of black racists?

That don’t matter.


So Rachel Dolezal has been passing as black. There’s been a lot of hoo-haw about this and that, comparisons with transgender people, etc. I see the comparison with Bruce Jenner — if someone can simply declare that they, as a person, feel that their actual person is in direct defiance of biology, and can alter their appearance to fit the inside, then Dolezal is 1000% within that realm. But.

Passing has a long history in America. Starting from the start of America up until the end of Jim Crow, it went one direction: black people (remember, this is in the era of the one-drop rule) passing as white people.  They passed for a simple reason — institutional racism in our culture imposed terrible burdens on them, preventing them from practicing a trade or leading a normal life while in their birth race.  The people who passed didn’t have something wrong with them — it was a rational response to the irrational barriers our culture imposed on them.

Virtually no one black passes as white anymore.  Other than our justice system, institutional racism is gone.  You don’t need to be white to hold certain jobs or live in certain neighborhoods anymore.  You can get the job you want and are competent at, and you can live where you want if you are black.

Rachel Dolezal, on the other hand, was in a situation like the pre-Jim Crow black person.  There is no doubt that she has had a life-long yearning for black culture.  She did her graduate studies in African American art at Howard University, a historically black college.  And she did it as a white woman — and experienced what she felt was discrimination from that institution.  Whether that was actually it or not, she certainly felt that way.

She married a black man.  She has black adopted brothers.  She was active in the NAACP and taught college courses on African studies.  There is no doubt that she is steeped in black culture.  And, at some point, like the black Americans of yore, the pressure of institutional racism against white people in those fields convinced her to start passing.

It’s as tragic as it was before the civil rights movement.  Even thought it is undeserved, human beings still feel shame when they are forced into that.  And just like when blacks passed as whites, when whites pass as blacks, it is because of institutional racism in the culture that they participate in.  Now the institutional racism is in black academia, and it is those racist institutions that should feel that shame.

Thought for the Day

One key fact that keeps getting ignored is that the poverty rate among black married couples has been in single digits every year since 1994.

Thomas Sowell

Guns and Vigilantes

A white vigilante attacks an elderly black man who had done nothing illegal, and it was only by the grace of god that no one got shot.

And you’ll never hear about it on the national news, despite months of non-stop coverage about Zimmerman.

“Yup, says right here in the manual, you can choke a n-“

No indictment for NYPD cop in chokehold death of Eric Garner.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.


Keep in mind, as Ferguson burns — the real looting won’t begin until Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton make it back.  They’ve been looting the civil rights movement for millions of dollars over decades.
