“You want to see a bunch of black people go to jail by the next four years? Put Joe Biden in there. Watch what happens. You want to see black men get killed substantially, like you’ve never seen before? Put Joe Biden in there. Watch what happens. These Democrats, and I’m sorry to say this and I’m not trying to be racist, but they hate black people. These are the same people who fought to keep slavery in. These are the same people who built the KKK. The Republican Party is the party of the blacks.”
“The black friend as a buffer dates to the days of slave owners painting a false narrative that they were beloved by the African-Americans they subjugated. The slave owners “sought to justify how their racial hierarchy harmonized relationships between a dominant (white) race against a subordinate (black) race,” Tyler Parry, an associate professor in African-American studies at California State University, Fullerton, wrote in the Black Perspectives blog.”
“Mr. Parry recounted how George Fitzhugh, a supporter of slavery, blamed Northern abolitionists for interfering, saying in 1854 that the white Southerner “is the Negro’s friend, his only friend.” After Emancipation, Mr. Parry wrote, a white Southern belle lamented the loss of black “friends, those we loved, and those who loved us.”
IB— it’s really offensive that you would even post this. All white people don’t have the same view point. So why would you even need to mention that one black woman has a differing view point. Are all blacks required or expected to think a like. I see it as mighty racist of you to want to throw that wide blanket over all of us.
Please sir, answer a question for me: A few years ago, you told me you thought the biggest problem in the black community was the negative affect of rap music. But sales records confirm: more whites listen to this same music. Does rap music have the same affect on them? Just want to understand your reasoning!!!!
three or four presumably white posters here did precisely this:
“IB— it’s really offensive that you would even post this. All white people don’t have the same view point. So why would you even need to mention that one black woman has a differing view point.

and each one of the posts is essentially an effort to legitimize their own white view by suggesting that its valid because a black person agrees, never mind that there are 40 MILLION black people in the US . . . etc etc.

Instead of being offended so easily, Sally, why don’t you have a rebuttal for the points made? Nobody is throwing a wide-blanket over anything. It doesn’t matter to me what the skin color is of the person who is making arguments, but it very clearly does matter to the race-baiters.
When white people make these same points, they are called racist or worse. When black people make these same points, they are called Uncle Tom’s or worse. I thought you “systemic racism” guys wanted to have the tough conversation? Well, have at it – but realize it’s not going to be a one-way conversation.
It was a white guy who created the “another BLACK woman:” thread. White guys on each thread, pointing out BLACK people who agree with them . .
and then calling others race-baiters . .
in a thread ENTITLED “another BLACK woman . .” which is a sequel to a thread entitled a “BLACK woman” and an COUSIN to a thread entitled . . . .
(Kidding aside, the idea of using the color of a persons skin to LEGITIMIZE a point of view, that is often antagonistic to the entire group of people with that color of skin . . is almost minstrel show level racism, in and of itself, but even putting that aside its just an obvious LOGICAL flaw because the argument that Candace Owens is representative or Walter Williams is representative of 40 million African Americans OBVIOUSLY cuts against the FACT of their NOTORIETY, right? I mean, Glenn Beck has Candance Ownes on her show PRECISELY because she is going to offer a controversial THOUGHT. Walter Williams offers white people “certificates of amnesty and pardon” precisely because its controversial. That Buggsy would create a thread about Ben Shaprio interviewing him — AS A REBUTTAL TO a point made in a Candace own thread — is just icing . . lol)
I don’t think anyone would think that any of this represents 40 million African Americans. It’s a minority view but why would the fact that a minority of blacks feels this way be offensive or as you said “antagonistic”? It’s not a racist or offensive view or at least it shouldn’t be. It’s these kind of double standards that paint you as a liar. A white guy creating a thread that points out that there are minorities who agree with him is racist because “how dare you!”…. all while you and those like you paint anti trump rioting as indicative of the anger of all black people because of systematic racism and universal racism.
You can’t have it both ways. What you and your ilk wants to do is marginalize those black voices who are in the minority. You want to relegate them to obscurity and invisibility. That my friend is at least as racist. Chalking up black folks as all seeing things your way and when they don’t, actively shaming people into keeping their voices in the dark is crappy and hypocritical.
