For The Record- What Is Racism?
I have been called a racist. I have been called a hater.
Racist I am not. Hater I am. I do not hate the person; I hate what they are doing to this country. Notice I said “they“!
I’m sure you already know who I am accused of being a racist and hater against. You guessed it! President Barack Obama! I do not hate Barack Obama. I do hate what he and the liberal agenda are doing to this nation! My issues with him have absolutely nothing to do with the color of his skin! His skin could be white, black, brown, red, purple, yellow, orange, or polka dotted for all I care!
Let me just lay my cards on the table from the beginning.
As I have addressed in my previous article, Mr. Obama FINALLY Presents His Birth Certificate , I have my doubts that the birth certificate that was released is actually real. With this issue it has absolutey nothing to do with the color of his skin; it has everything to do with the fact that I do not believe a single word that comes out of his mouth, as I wrote about in my article, “Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!” However, because I do not have actual proof, I am not going to waste my time going down that road. The simple fact is things just don’t add up. But, what’s done is done. The American people elected him. So be it. Enough said about the birth certificate.
As to the second accusation that I am a hater, I do not hate anyone. I strongly dislike some people, and there are many, many, many people I choose not to spend time with, I do not hate anyone. As a Christian, I strive to live by the Word of God. (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27) So no, I do not hate President Obama as a person.
However, I do hate what he is doing to this country! He is systematically destroying everything that this country stands for!
For the record, he has not done this on his own. I believe he is the one to actually accomplish the goal that the liberals have been working towards for 100 years or so.
It was WHITE people who started the Liberal Agenda and have used and manipulated blacks along the way. Unfortunately, and very sadly, so many blacks have bought into the lies of the Liberal Agenda. But blacks are not the only people who have bought into their lies.
It’s interesting to me that if a black person speaks out against President Obama they are referred to as a racist. This has got to be one of the most asinine arguments/attacks/accusations I’ve ever heard! How can a black person be racist against another black person?
I guess I can somewhat stretch my imagination to the farthest ends of the earth to understand this logic if… and ONLY IF – the person was speaking out against the black President to say that the president should be white. However, if the black man is speaking out against the black President to say that he- a black man- is going to run against him, I believe that throws the whole racist argument out the window entirely. It’s just logical. But hey, that’s just me. Logical. It’s so sad that so often the liberal argument lacks common logic.
Herman Cain- a black man– is running for President as an opponent of President Barack Obama- a black man! So, Herman Cain- a black man– is essentially saying he is applying for the job of President of The United States of America- which is currently held by- wait…. a black man! I know! Shocking, isn’t it! How racist of Herman Cain!
I warned you- there is absolutely no logic in that argument!
So, for the record- to be factual in this discussion- what is a racist?
Dictionary.com defines a racist (or “racism” as the actual query results shows) as:
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
4. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
5. abusive or aggressive behavior towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief
From this definition it is very clear that Herman Cain is not a racist. I personally can say, from reading the official definition of the word, that I am not racist. In fact, if I were able to pick my perfect candidate and running mate for 2012 President, both the President and Vice President would be non-white. I will not elaborate on the reasons for my choices in this article, but will in a future article. So who would I choose? For President I would absolutely love to have Allen West. For Vice President I would absolutely love to have Michelle Malkin. Now, I do realize that Michelle Malkin has never breathed a word of interest towards a political position. However, this country would benefit greatly from her being in a leadership position.
The only real explanation that makes any sense to me is that the people shouting “racism” have no other legitimate argument to stand on. The last thing any normal person wants is to be called a racist. Notice I said normal person, because there are the ridiculous people out there that take pride in being called a racist. I believe these people are by far few and far between in comparison to normal people who see things factually rather than racially.
The liberals are smart enough to realize that any sane, normal person will vehemently deny being racist. This distracts from the real issues. If you can disarm the person from arguing the real issues you are essentially the winner.
The problem is this is not a game. The winners and losers are not those arguing the liberal or conservative agenda. The real losers are our children. Our future. The future of this great nation. There are no winners at all!
We truly have reached a very sad state of affairs in this country. Call me what you will- racist, hater, or any other hateful thing you choose. I know the truth. Do you want to know what I really am? Sad. Very sad to see how far we have sunk as a nation.
