Yes, Blacks CAN be Racist

Before I begin, I have to give a "trigger-warning" (ha!) disclaimer; racism is the most taboo and policed of all thoughts in this "tolerant" country and is extremely difficult for people to openly discuss the topic without the discussion disintegrating into total logical chaos and ad hominem attacks. I posted this topic for this very reason as to see what kind of debate could take place. Also, for my black and minority friends and followers, I also have to give a disclaimer because some will inevitably take a conversation like this personally when in reality I am trying to address the larger issue of Cultural Marxism and Critical Race Theory. The topic of black racism is the most taboo subject of all. I find it absurd and frankly distressing that our society teaches and condones the fact that only whites are capable of racism and that whites are responsible for "institutionalized racism". This is clearly false, and there are numerous examples to illustrate this, some I will quote later.

Clearly, no one denies the history of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, etc. But the fact is, we have come a long, long way since segregation was the law of the land and the US has done more than almost any other country to equalize the opportunities for blacks and minorities. The US has instituted affirmative action, The Civil Rights Act, The Fair Housing Act, School Integration (Brown vs. Board of Education), and the first anti-discrimination laws were passed 30 years before the Civil Rights act of 1964 during the New Deal. Congress passed Title VII, ending discrimination in employment. Section 703(a) forbade any employer to “limit, segregate, or classify employees in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment” based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. President Johnson issued Ex. Order 11246 which established color-blind hiring rules for federal contractors. We have grants, scholarships, minority fraternities and groups in universities. This has effectively equalized opportunities for minorities and leveled the playing field. I have never witnessed anyone – employer, teacher, clerk, etc. - deny service or equal opportunity to blacks or other minorities. I have, and I know you have, had perfectly normal and great professional and personal relationships with people of color where race was really never a thought in our minds. I believe this is the norm in 2015.

Growing up in the last 30 years in America, I never really thought about race much because I was taught everyone was equal, had the same god-given rights, and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I was shocked after discovering numerous examples of overt hatred of whites (which I will share below) and shocked further still after attempts to broach this subject I was met with the same response in varying degrees of malice and indoctrinated hatred of the “white male oppressor” theme. Where was this coming from I asked? What is going on here? I had come to think race relations were improving in the US, so why can't a meaningful conversation take place without the argument that minorities are still, after all I have listed “systematically and institutionally oppressed and disadvantaged on all levels”? It is apparent that the US has done more to insure that blacks and minorities are in fact NOT “systematically and institutionally oppressed and disadvantaged on all levels.” These are the questions that led me to discover Critical Theory, Cultural Marxism, and the insidious effect this type of thought has on the "oppressed minorities" in the "evil Capitalist West".

The famous quote from MLK: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Malcom X: “I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.” 

In stark contrast: “From his adoption of the Nation of Islam in 1952 until he left the organization in 1964, Malcolm X promoted the Nation's teachings. He taught that black people were the original people of the world,[71] and that white people were a race of devils.[72] In his speeches, Malcolm X said that black people were superior to white people, and that the demise of the white race was imminent.[73]” This is the very definition of racism. (“Racism: the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”) Malcom X is held in extremely high regard in the black community.

"In January, (1991) Minister Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad of the Nation of Islam gave a talk at Columbia University sponsored by the Black Students Organization. He spoke of “Columbia Jewniversity” and “Jew York City” and argued that the blacks who attacked the Central Park jogger were in jail because of a “no-good, low-down, nasty white woman.” He said that the government had killed Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, and that blacks were the fathers of civilization. Whites, on the other hand, had produced nothing but “murder, bloodshed, destruction, misery, slavery, colonialism, racism, sexism, Zionism, and all forms of madness.” Minister Khalid’s visit was paid for out of the university’s mandatory student activities fee, and his remarks were reportedly met with great enthusiasm. His speech was certainly a tour de-force exercise of free speech...” (Paved With Good Intentions, Jared Taylor)

“On Sunday, the St. Petersburg/Tampa, Florida, chapter of the New Black Panther Party issued a tweet calling for the murder of white people.
“Kill these racist h**keys, these cr***ers, these pigs, these pink people, It has been long overdue!” the organization said on Twitter.
In a 32-page newsletter released in May, NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz suggested that violence may be the most effective way to advance their agenda. (Posted by EU Times on Apr 21st, 2015).”

The city of Dallas, TX was searching for a new police chief in the fall of 1990. A black commissioner promised mass violence if the new chief did not meet his standards for racial sensitivity, “If you try to bring a 'good 'ol boy' in this system, we're going to be in the streets – physically, literally shooting folks,” he said. (United Press International, Omaha World-Herald, Sept. 20, 1990, pg. 10)

Louis Farrakhan: “The Mother Wheel is a heavily armed spaceship the size of a city, which will rain destruction upon white America but save those who embrace the Nation of Islam.” -and this: “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.” -Louis Farrakhan 

Here are some excerpts from an opinion piece written by a black student in the college newspaper of Penn State University:
“After looking at all of the evidence there is only one conclusion: white people are devils…. I believe that we must secure our freedom and independence from these devils by any means necessary, including violence…. To protect ourselves we should bear arms (three handguns and two rifles, maybe an M-16) immediately and form a militia…. So black people, let us unite, organize and execute.”

Execute? What accounts for words like this from a young black man attending a well-known university? Why would someone who grew up in an era not only of civil rights and integration but also of affirmative action write these things?" (Chino Wilson, “African Americans Should Not Trust 'Devilish' White People,” The Daily Collegian (Penn State University), Jan. 28, 1992.)

After reading these examples, (there are more, but I am trying to be brief) how can anyone say black racism is “impossible”? How is it acceptable for anyone of any race to advocate violence in such a way, use racial slurs, with absolutely no reprecussions. In Critical Race Theory, if a white priveliged male said these things there would be an international news sensation and calls for firing, violence, and social ostrisizing! Look at the original comment response that started this thread. I believe this is a response created from years of reinforcing and teaching in universities Cultural Marxism, an idea that breeds hatred, self-segregation, and group think that is a now knee-jerk level response to anyone wanting to ask serious questions about race relations at present. I refuse to self-censor myself at the alter of political correctness. 

Amiri Baraka was famous as one of the major forces in the Black Arts movement of the 1960s and ’70s, which sought to duplicate in fiction, poetry, drama and other mediums the aims of the black power movement in the political arena. One wonders what influence a poem like this has on the mindset of a person: 
“[Y] ou can’t steal nothin from a white man, he’s already stole it
he owes you anything you want, even his life.
All the stores will open if you will say the magic words.
The magic words are: Up against the wall mother fucker this is a stick up!
Or: Smash the window at night (these are magic actions)
smash the windows daytime, anytime, together, let’s smash the window
drag the shit from in there. No money down. No time to pay. Just take what you want.”
(Quoted in Anne Wortham, The Other Side of Racism, Originally in The Black Poet, ed. Dudley Randall, p. 226)

I am disturbed at the silence (well, not really- they are run by the MOT) in the media when it comes to this topic. I am also deeply concerned about the level of censorship, political correct policing of thoughts in today's universities and academia. No topic, no matter how difficult, can ever be addressed if it is ignored. Every other racial group can freely advance its interests at the expense of others, but whites are forbidden to organize and work for their own interests, and are expressly forbidden to talk about race. My question to you is: Why is this topic forbidden? Why are white people in 2015 responsible for “The sins of the father”? If there is a body of thought that shows all the signs of doctrinaire rigidity, willful ignorance, and even duplicity, it is what is thought and said about race. In blaming “institutional racism,” it attempts to transfer responsibility to an entire society, even when there is no intent to discriminate. It does away with the idea of individual responsibility, while essentially declaring all whites guilty.
