In recent years, many have voiced concern to me pursuant to Obama instigating a race war between blacks and whites. I argue, we are already in a race war and have been since every race-based divisive piece of legislation and every segregative word, phrase and assignation became the parlance of the day.
The idea of blacks not having a level playing field and blacks needing special dispensation from the caring white liberals has transmogrified into an intellectual pursuit of understanding for whites suffering from guilt and the liberal white illuminati who treat same as their exclusive realm of intellectual empathy.
Nearly every reference made pursuant to blacks and/or about them contributes to the raging race war that no one wants to admit is taking place and has been taking place since the beginning of the 20th century, when Lenin looked across the ocean and declared that the former slaves and first-generation freeborn blacks “were ripe for revolution.” (See my column “Jehmu Greene: Portrait of black bigotry.”)
Whites, based on grammatical ignorance varnished with political correctness and promulgated as proper, are contributing massively to the deterioration, indeed, the very destruction of harmony among all Americans.
Nothing sickens me to my stomach more than the unwitting and/or pompous liberal illuminati making references to “African-American, the black community, the black church, the black educational system,” or any other of countless race-based assignations covertly designed to divide, separate, alienate and develop the idea that blacks are aboriginal Americans.
People, whites specifically, take no thought to the fact that every time they speak using race-based assignations they contribute to the dissolution of the American fabric they want to believe they are making stronger. Segregative language does just that – it segregates.
Even conservative blacks unconsciously use segregative language and word pictures. The pervasiveness of such language is insidious to the point that it is accepted as normative.
Segregative identifiers inculcate the mindset that blacks are a separate group existing outside the mainstream of America. Blacks are expected to be coarse and angry. They are expected to exhibit behavior that runs counter to that which is quietly viewed as civil.
In my opinion, television situation comedies are an insult to even undeveloped minds – but that notwithstanding, have you ever taken time to compare those produced for mainstream viewing audiences (read whites) with those for black viewing audiences? They make a punichello with the IQ of an empty can look genius.
Take a critical examination of television commercials that specifically target blacks. Listen to the grammatical patterns and study the familial interactions. With very few exceptions, they portray a people with decidedly different mores and behavioral systems that are outside the mainstream.
Agree or not, whites are viewing these things and drawing conclusions that reinforce what many have unconsciously already had inculcated, i.e., blacks are different. A white Ph.D. professor I had in college argued with me that it was his position the sitcom “The Jeffersons” perfectly represented the black family, because in his mind blacks behaved like George Jefferson and family, upward mobility notwithstanding.
Blacks viewing these programs are having the idea reinforced that they are different from whites. The proof of same is that blacks spoke and still speak derisively of the Bill Cosby sitcom.
“The Cosby Show” was a sitcom about Dr. Cliff Huxtable and his family. But in black parlance the word “Huxtable” was/is used derisively of blacks who do not behave like someone who just fell off a turnip truck.
There is a conscious attempt taking place today that is designed and intended to foment discord and disunity. It is intended to keep blacks resentful and distrustful of whites, and it is intended to make whites feel guilty while viewing blacks separate from the whole.
The elite white illuminati on one hand use this to portray themselves as understanding and supportive of the poor disenfranchised black man who cannot get ahead without government help and race-based affirmative-action programs.
Those in the media are especially guilty of this. Newspaper editors, news program producers and program hosts deeply resent men and women such as myself because we are antithetical to the debilitating and self-limiting, segregative mentality they embrace. They go out of their way to marginalize voices like Ward Connelly and mine because we are working to change the social dynamic that imprisons minds.
The race war is under way and has been – why else would those of us who truly work to unite people be so viciously attacked? Why would race-mongers and those blacks who epitomize the communist W.E.B. Du Bois’ Talented Tenth be promoted by liberal editors and programmers over those working to bring people into modernity?
As long as people are willing to believe it’s not taking place, the race war will grow in intensity and purpose until it accomplishes Lenin’s goal.
