It’s a Good Dream to Have

Rep_Joe_WalshI have no feelings for Representative Joe Walsh, in fact, I have no feelings for his politics or anything else.  He has zero impact on my life, he’s part of the Illinois political machine and therefore, I just don’t care what he says or what he stands for directly.  That said though, this popped up in a recent discussion, where liberals started whining about how racist this is.  It’s not only not racist, I almost agree with him.

In something he posted to his own website, he said that, in honor of the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s famous “I have a dream” speech, he had some dreams of his own.  They included:

I have a dream that all black parents will have the right to choose where their kids attend school.

I have a dream that all black boys and girls will grow up with a father.

I have a dream that young black men will stop shooting other young black men.

I have a dream that all young black men will say “no” to gangs and to drugs.

I have a dream that all black young people will graduate from high school.

I have a dream that young black men won’t become fathers until after they’re married and they have a job.

I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say “no” to young black men who want to have sex.

I have a dream that today’s black leadership will quit blaming racism and “the system” for what ails black America.

I have a dream that black America will take responsibility for improving their own lives.

I have a dream that one day black America will cease their dependency on the government plantation, which has enslaved them to lives of poverty, and instead depend on themselves, their families, their churches, and their communities.

I said that I thought all of those were good ideas, although if I had to make a correction, I’d edit “black” out of the entire piece.  I don’t think this is a problem just in the black community, but in every community.  I don’t think these are good ideas just for black Americans, but for all Americans.

Of course, because he did mention blacks and, of course, because Walsh is white, lots of liberals are whining about what a racist he is.  Clearly, no white man can have any legitimate opinion on what goes on in the black community, but as I’ve said before, they don’t want black men having opinions either.  The second anyone dares to speak out against what happens in the black community, they get called race traitors (if black) or racists (if white), nobody bothers to ask themselves if they have a point.

Well, they do.  It’s undeniable that they do.  I can even see why people would want to focus on the problems in the black community because the black community is so much worse off than any other community in the nation. That doesn’t stop the liberals from whining about it and throwing racism around like it’s a Frisbee.  Oh no, 25% of white children grow up in a single-parent household!  14% of Hispanic children don’t graduate from high school!  Only 25% of white teenagers use the most effective birth control methods!  86% of white murders are performed by whites.  Don’t focus on blacks!

Unfortunately, when we look at the reality, we find that 78% of black children grow up in a single-parent household, in poor communities, more than 50% of black kids fail to graduate from high school and only 14% of black teenagers use the most effective forms of birth control.  94% of black murders are performed by blacks.  In just about every metric, the problems in the black community are much, much worse across the board than in any other racial community.  Why shouldn’t we focus on the demonstrably worse problems first?

That’s not to say we shouldn’t pay attention to the problems across the board, we certainly should, but there is only so much time, money and manpower available to solve any particular issue at any particular time.  Is it not logical, therefore, to attack the biggest problem first?  That’s not being racist, that’s being efficient and I would argue that efficiency is a good thing.

So why are liberals so dead set against actually helping to fix the problems in the black community?  Because they benefit by keeping them poor and dependent on the government so they will keep voting to keep the Democrats in power.  While I’m sure some of the liberal footsoldiers are convinced they’re doing the right thing, the majority don’t buy into any of this racism crap because it’s just not defensible.  It’s emotional pablum, just like most things that liberals tout.  It’s easier to toss around feelings than to get down to the nuts and bolts of an issue and work on real-world solutions.  That’s a problem for a huge number of people.

It’s about damn time we get rid of this politically correct crap and actually worry about looking at the issues rationally and dealing with them intellectually.  If there are problems in the black community or the white community or the Hispanic community or the Asian community or the Eskimo community or any other community you can come up with, let’s take the worst problems, fix them and then move on to the next group. We cannot correct issues in this country if we’re afraid to even acknowledge they exist.  It makes no more sense to scream “racism!” than it does to scream “misogynist!”, that’s just avoiding the issues and that’s going to lead to still more liberal failures.

I guess they just like to fail.

    1. Unfortunately, a lot of liberals think that anything a white person says about a non-white person is racist by definition, but anything a non-white person says about a white person, regardless of how racist it actually is, cannot be racist. Personally, I think MLK would be horrified at what we see in the black community today, especially the double standards that he fought against back in the day.

  1. I'll respond to each of his dreams point by point. Hold onto your butts.

    I have a dream that all black parents will have the right to choose where their kids attend school.

    Screw that. My wife and I worked hard all of our lives to get to the point where we can afford a nice home in the excellent school system of Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. Why would we do that if we knew that all of the indigents from Detroit who sit on their asses and collect government aid would be shipping their ghetto rats to my son’s school? This is asking for equal outcomes, not equal opportunity. How about making all public schools equal no matter where they are located?

    I have a dream that all black boys and girls will grow up with a father.

    Looking at the current quality of many African American males, I’m not sure that is such a great dream.

    I have a dream that young black men will stop shooting other young black men.

    This one really eats the lining out of my stomach. I have several comments to make on this. First, how about the media stop disguising or glossing over hate crimes committed by blacks against non-blacks? Black on non-black crimes in the United States are almost NEVER portrayed as hate crimes, yet it is obvious to anyone with half a brain that many of these crimes are indeed racist…and numerous. Second, why focus on the weapons? Look at the UK and you see scores of crimes committed with knives and clubs. More people are beaten to death in the U.S. than die from criminal assaults committed with firearms. How about we just wish for an overall decrease in physical assaults?

    I have a dream that all young black men will say “no” to gangs and to drugs.

    When they have a guaranteed paycheck coming to them at my expense, why the hell would they? Dream on, buddy.

    I have a dream that all black young people will graduate from high school.

    See above.

    I have a dream that young black men won’t become fathers until after they’re married and they have a job.

    Marriage is a horrific form of male servitude and should be outlawed. I’m on my second one, and only because of U.S. immigration laws. As far as not breeding before being employed, that will never happen as long as the system encourages them to sponge off of taxpayers and sex education initiatives are squashed by Republicans.

    I have a dream that young unmarried black women will say “no” to young black men who want to have sex.

    Yes, because only men want to have sex and birth control is evil. Stupid.

    I have a dream that today’s black leadership will quit blaming racism and “the system” for what ails black America.

    As long as the “black leadership” remains racist, that will always be a dream.

    I have a dream that black America will take responsibility for improving their own lives.

    Again, as long as there is no incentive to do so and they are enabled to continue to be parasites, this cycle of stupidity will only end when our society completely collapses. Hell, for all I know, it may even continue then.

    I have a dream that one day black America will cease their dependency on the government plantation, which has enslaved them to lives of poverty, and instead depend on themselves, their families, their churches, and their communities.

    The Republicans are just as much to blame for the current state of affairs as the idiot liberal Democrats. They made concession after concession throughout the last 80 + years in order to get their personal little pork barrel bills passed. They stood by while this nation was dismantled bit by bit and THEY DID NOTHING of substance to stop the hemorrhaging.
