According to the “sociologists” and race hucksters consulted by the New York Times, race should be considered in the Zimmerman trial except that Zimmerman’s race (hispanic) should not be considered because he is a “white hispanic” and just the son of a “Peruvian.”
And race should be considered in the trial except for considering Zimmerman’s state of mind in light of the overwhelming statistics showing that Trayvon Martin’s race commits violent crimes at a rate drastically disproportionate to its population percentage . . .
Why are Democrat policies nearly always focused on this or that group rather than the country at large?
It’s really very simple. Legislation and tax policies which provide benefits to all citizens yield fewer votes, political contributions and favors to Democrats than “targeted” proposals. The Democrat guiding principle is to divide us into groups, and then to threaten punishment to certain groups while offering rewards to others.
Despite the Democrats incessant bleating about “fairness,” unequal treatment of both groups and individuals is essential to Democrat electoral success. Graft, envy and anger are the keys to Democrat hope and change.
The sad truth is that Democrats need and promote racial and social division. Without homophobia, sexism and racism all you have left is personal responsibility. Democrats can’t “fix” that with your tax dollars and votes.
The usual suspects compete to condemn Paula Deen for her apparently private use of the word “nigger” many years ago. Very few question those who use the same word, and other equally offensive words, for financial gain while promoting racial and gender stereotypes.
Some suggest that determining what is indecent public speech depends upon the race of the speaker.
There is no separate set of “rules” for decency in public speech depending on your race. Are we back to measuring bloodlines? One standard of decency for octoroons and a second standard for quadroons? If so, there is no decency left.
What must be addressed is the bullying, fear and cowardice inherent in confronting those in presently unfavorable racial groups for indecent public speech while celebrating equally despicable public speech by members of untouchable racial groups.
Albany NY Times-Union:
“The Albany school district inappropriately handled a race-bullying incident by removing the victim from the school instead of her harassers, the U.S. Department of Education has found.
The eighth-grade honors student, who is biracial, was repeatedly harassed by white classmates at Hackett Middle School in March 2012 . . . The students who bullied the girl mockingly donned Ku Klux Klan hoods, asked how much her parents had paid to adopt her and compared her skin color to theirs in Spanish class comparison exercises, the document also states . . .
The girl’s mother, Joan Curcio, said her daughter is biracial and had been teased about her race — by white and black students — while she was at Hackett.
The district is now required by the U.S. Department of Education to send an offer of counseling to every black child who attended Hackett Middle School in the 2011-2012 school year and complained about racial harassment.
The students who participated in the alleged bullying did not receive any discipline, and denied that they wore KKK hoods, even though school officials determined they participated in other harassment.” [This sentence makes no logical point]
From Washington Post May 15, 2013:
“A FASCINATING MAP OF The World’s Most And Least Racially Tolerant Countries. Strangely, those horrible capitalist, imperialist Western countries seem to be doing really well.
• Anglo and Latin countries most tolerant. People in the survey were most likely to embrace a racially diverse neighbor in the United Kingdom and its Anglo former colonies (the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) and in Latin America. The only real exceptions were oil-rich Venezuela, where income inequality sometimes breaks along racial lines, and the Dominican Republic, perhaps because of its adjacency to troubled Haiti. Scandinavian countries also scored high.
• India, Jordan, Bangladesh and Hong Kong by far the least tolerant. In only three of 81 surveyed countries, more than 40 percent of respondents said they would not want a neighbor of a different race. This included 43.5 percent of Indians, 51.4 percent of Jordanians and an astonishingly high 71.8 percent of Hong Kongers and 71.7 percent of Bangladeshis.”
