This is another column by one of my favorite black writers, Mychal Massie.
The lies, half truths, distortions and the fomenting of black antipathy toward whites by racial agitators (including the mainstream media) have been exposed for what they are. Within that group, perhaps the guiltiest is Obama’s racial provocateur-in-chief, Eric Holder, who is supposed be a non-biased attorney general.
While in Ferguson, Missouri, Holder was quoted saying: “I am the attorney general of the United States, but I am also a black man.” To which I respond: Therein lies both the problem and the difference between Americans who are enslaved to skin pigmentation and those who are not.
It’s too bad Holder cannot get beyond being a color. Holder and those like him are individuals who believe there is something to be gained by going through life as a color with a chip on their shoulders. The reality, however, is that people like Holder ascribe to a self-imposed slave plantation mentality that is far more dehumanizing than the most pernicious instances of Jim Crow.
This is 2014 – not the 1850s Deep South. I am a free man, an American, and I was bred and born a free man and an American. Why would I reduce myself to something as singularly unimportant as “a skin pigmentation”? I know that which I have just said will make the heads of race mongers explode. They are fixated on race to the extent that it is all they can see. Free-minded masters of our own destinies under God – such as myself and other Americans of color who embrace all that America is and all that America has provided for people of every race, color, and creed – are a threat to the Holders of this nation.
As I said to Glenn Beck on his television show, I do not enter a store as a black man. I enter as Mychal Massie, a man who is there to make a purchase, waste time, or whatever. But I will not go through my life fixated on proving I am something special as a means of overcoming an inculcated sense of inferiority based on the color of my skin. It is because those like me are free that we are ostracized, threatened and looked upon with disfavor by those who have shackled themselves to an existence that rejects modernity.
One of my Facebook friends put it this way: “You see there is a new religion called Blackness. Many [blacks] are devoted to our skin more than we are devoted to Jesus. Being Black is more important than Jesus.”
It is as simple as 1-2-3. As long as blacks focus more energy on being black than they do propriety and modernity, they will be slaves to a vitriolic heterodoxy designed to destabilize America and enslave a populace of same.
Holder claimed that he was able to identify with the people of Ferguson and the racial tensions that were used to fuel rioting because he could “remember being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding” – traffic stops that ended with his car being searched, which he said humiliated and angered him.
Unlike Holder, I’ve never participated in an unprovoked armed takeover of a building on a college campus, but I have been stopped for speeding more times than I care to count, including on the New Jersey Turnpike, and I have never in my life had my automobile searched nor questioned pursuant to whether or not I was carrying contraband. I should also point out that a brilliant work by City Journal’s Heather MacDonald detailed what race mongers and liberals intentionally omit pursuant to traffic stops of blacks vs. whites on the New Jersey Turnpike. Suffice it to say that once again, the facts disprove the racial histrionics and hysteria.
Every black person who has ever been stopped for speeding or another traffic violation and was not ordered from your automobile with your hands above your head while your vehicle was searched for contraband, raise your hands.
Holder’s rhetoric was deplorable and intended to do one thing and one thing only – foment more discord and more violence. Holder is looking for reasons to wrench the investigation away from Ferguson law enforcement and bring it under his purview. His objective is to ensure a predetermined outcome of the investigation and punishment for the police shooting of Michael Brown.
This is the man, Massie, who wrote that Obama and Michelle behaved like trailer trash getting into the White House on a lottery win. Oh, so true. And how they’ve proven over and over what trash they are.
As a black man himself, Massie sees what the unjust Holder is up to in Ferguson. Does Darren Wilson have a chance in hell of him getting justice especially with Holder heading up the game?
It screams of someone asking, this time the outraged blacks in Ferguson, “someone throw this game away so we win”. In walks Holder, one of the biggest racists in this country. In his case he has power that other blacks do not have. He can get things done the way blacks want. He can make sure that this cop never gets any justice in this latest scream, “white cop kills black teen”.
The other night a black cop killed a white person? Have you heard any screams or riots over that? No and you won’t. That is not important, whitey doesn’t count. Whiteys are to be gunned down and killed as they are so very bad and racist.
The blacks, since the Grand Mufti Obama took office, are now reclaiming the old canard that whitey is so racist they must be killed. Blacks have been killing whites around the country and what do you see on the news about that. No, of course not because we whiteys of today must once again pay for our sins of keeping slaves.
I’ve got some news for these racist blacks. Some of us were not even here when slavery took place. My grand parents were not even here during slavery. Our grandparents came from other countries like mine did from Russia, and Belgian on the other side of my family. They never held slaves.
In Russia my grand parents were already slaves in Russia and fled to America. And guess what, as immigrants here they worked hard with no help from the government to make a life for themselves and each generation after them did better. That’s how it works. You get a job, work hard and climb the ladder to a better life.
So hey all of you racist blacks out there, don’t blame me for slavery. I had nothing to do with it. Look to your demonrats who you keep voting for and see just who is keeping you on the plantation with all those freebies you are not willing to give up. That would mean getting a job.
