“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

What is missing from this "News" Report?

Black America blames white America

 - - Tuesday, September 26, 2017 Washington Times
I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency.  

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault.  

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve tried that.  Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions.  

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community.  
I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing.  

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it.  

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it.  

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played.  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then.  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property.  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is what the Left wants.


  1. Blacks in America are their own worst enemy and blame their problems on white America. White America knows it and is afraid to say it. The majority of blacks know it is true and refuse to admit it.

    With that, it will never change and likely get worse.

    2. LBJ was probably the single most destructive entity involved in the dissolution of the black family.

      LBJ was white.

      I am white.

      I am not remotely related.

      LBJ was a super mega ultimate asshole.

      I am a garden variety asshole.

      White, privileged, innocent.

  2. Packers players are joined by massive display of fans linking arms during national anthem

    Not for the private employer nor the private property owner.

    The people that have a problem should not participate in the program.

    The NFL could burn a flag during the anthem, it is their 'Right' to do so.

    Taking a knee is not nearly as provocative as burning 'Old Glory'.

  4. This is a REAL public policy problem

    Evacuees leave Puerto Rico by cruise ship, some doubting they will return


  5. The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, lashed out at acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke's comment that the Hurricane Maria relief efforts are a "good news story," saying that in reality, it's a "people are dying story."

    Speaking outside the White House on Thursday, Duke said that she was “very satisfied” with efforts to aid Puerto Rico in the wake of Maria, which devastated the island and has created a humanitarian crisis. Duke said “it is really a good news story,” an assessment that San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz scoffed at.

    Even with massive Federal spending a million people will leave Puerto Rico, never to return, as a resident.

    The demographic of Florida, forever changed.
    500,000 new Floridian voters. At a minimum ... From swing State to swung


    1. ... Trump went on
      : "... The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!"

      Like New Orleans after Katrina...
      The poor folk are not going back
      Their substandard housing will not be replicated in the Puerto Rico renewal program


  6. ... Packers-Bears game will be the first NFL matchup to stream live to Amazon Prime customers alongside the normal CBS telecast.

    No, it's not pro football's first such experiment (games have been streamed on Twitter), and no it isn't yet the death knell of free sports on TV.

    But it is a small piece in what's becoming an increasingly completed jigsaw puzzle: Amazon and Jeff Bezos have run up the score in the battle to own the living room.

    As Hank said ...
    NFL FOOTBALL is American Made

  7. She had her eye tattooed.

    Yes, her eyeball.

    It was more than she bargained for.

    A Canadian model has a dire warning after getting an eye tattoo that she says may leave her partially blind.

    On Facebook, Catt Gallinger shared images of purple dye leaking out of her eye that she got a tattoo on.

    She wrote that she’s been to the hospital three times, can’t be near pet dander and that steroid and antibiotic treatments have only seemed to worsen the condition of her eye.

    All she wanted was a “sclera tattoo” that would lightly color the whites of her eyes — but now, she’s afraid she may lose her eyesight, according to the Independent.



    2. Doctors might have to remove her eye if the ink moves to her retina, according to Fox43.

      But, Gallinger said, “As far as I’m being told right now, I will be able to keep my eye.”

      Still, Gallinger said she wants to make sure no one else experiences the emotional pain she now endures.

      “Just please be cautious who you get your mods from and do your research,” she said. “I don't want this to happen to anyone else.”


      Go ahead and do it anyway, but be careful.

    Tell it to the NFL owners. I would suggest most of them, maybe all of them, now wish this would just go away. They've already said none of them would be going out on the field to hold hands and sing cumbuya anymore. At least, one company has pulled their ads. Attendance is down from one week to the next before to after the demonstrations started. Can't actually tell if that is because of the protests but they're not helping. The NFL has put itself in the middle now between those who support the protests and those opposed and its not the way they want to run their business. I would say most of them probably wish they had simply issued a simple statement of support for those players who wanted to demonstrate rather than going balls out and demonstrating on field with them.

    The players?

    In my opinion, they are going nutz with this thing. Does anyone actually know what this is all about anymore. Kapernick took a position on a specific issue, police treatment of blacks. I think he did it to support his personal beliefs. He backed it up by donating $1 million to various black causes. He has spent a year without a job paying for his position. Now, that initial issue has morphed into support for something called 'unity'. What does that actually mean? It's nebulous enough it's hard for anyone to be against it yet small enough to fit on a t-shirt or a cap. Most of the players in the NFL seem to have bought into it, or at least, pretend to have bought into it. How can anyone be against 'UNITY'? Even so, a lot of them are now showing buyer's remorse. Roethslisberger is the latest one to say he's sorry he took part in it.

    While I have no problem with these guys doing whatever they want and are allowed to do under contract, demonstrate, make an ass of yourself, do what you want. Who cares? However, it kind of bugs me when pricks like Aaron Rogers start asking (shaming?) the fans to join in and make asses of themselves over some nebulous issue that no one has adequately explained.


    1. .

      On the other hand,

      Adam Silver says he expects all the NBA players to be standing for the national anthem when the season opens tomorrow or face a fine.


    2. Colin Kaepernick wears socks that depict little piggies wearing police hats.

      Shouldn't his Muslim girlfriend protest his wearing pork?

    3. He also wears Castro T-shirts.

      Colin Kaepernick Praises Fidel Castro's Education Policy...

    4. Guys a real genius everyone can get behind.

    5. .

      I didn't say you had to like his position or him. I said I don't think he is doing it for any other reason than he believes in it.


    6. Too bad he doesn't believe in Santa Claus instead.
