It Works Both Ways

Be proud of your heritage, the color of your skin, your history. Just make sure you are anything but white. This is an issue that, thanks to the liberal media, is rarely discussed. While saying “Black power!” is empowering and doted on by mass media, saying anything concerning white pride is written off as racist.

According to a poll by the New York Times, “Racial discontent is at its highest point in the Obama presidency and at the same level as after the riots touched off by the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in Mr. King’s beating”.  The Federalist backed this up, by stating, “He [Obama] has done this by taking every opportunity to see disparities between groups as evidence of discrimination, then using all available resources to fight this perceived discrimination by going to war against the Americans he believes are responsible for it, who are almost always whites, men, police, and Christians”. Our President’s blatant racist (lets call it like it is) speeches have fueled hate that has caused division in this country.

To add fuel to the fire, MTV released a video titled 2017 News Years Resolutions for White Guys (click the link to watch the video). While the video was taken down less than 48 hours, it faced tons of backlash. The Sun seemed to nail it right on the head, calling the makers of the video “racist, sexist, cowardly bullies”. What prompted producers to release this video, the way never know.

Now, think for a moment, what if that had been titled, “Resolutions for Black Guys”? or “Resolutions for Women”? Imagine the backlash they would face, the lawsuits, the boycotting. MTV would be ruined. But what made them think that it was okay to post something like that? Could it be that the same people who bring us Teen Mom feel the need to report on politics? Of course, they spew the same Trump-hating rhetoric as most of the liberal media. Just speculation here, but honestly I would consider Hillary Clinton a better source for news than MTV, and we all know just how honest she is.

Let’s face it, racism is not acceptable in any way, shape, or form. But we have to accept the face that people can be racist against whites. Prim example: the N-word vs. Cracker.  We all know where the N word is derived from. It has an ugly, nasty history to it. But many people do not know the origin of the term Cracker. Now you can look it up, and it will tell you that is a term used for poor white people, but that is not where it came from.

NPR addressed the history of the word, stating that, “It was in the late 1800s when writers from the North started referring to the hayseed faction of Southern homesteaders as crackers. “[Those writers] decided that they were called that because of the cracking of the whip when they drove slaves,””. Feel free to click on the link to read the full article of the nasty, hate-filled word. The gist of the article is that Cracker is a term for a slave driver. Now, this is not something they teach in school, because it goes against the liberal white shame agenda. I myself learned the origin of Cracker during a family vacation to the south, where we got to tour a cotton plantation led by a decedent of a slave who worked there. It was an extremely educational tour, to see the full ugly truth of that part of history.

So, if these words are so closely related, why would it be acceptable to say one and not the other? I am not supporting the use of the N-word. However, if called a Cracker, I will take offense. And why should I not? If someone calls me a Cracker, they are calling me a slave driver. These two words are closely linked, and neither is acceptable to say to another person.

Now here’s a thought. Could it be possible that racism against white people is really a thing? MTV blew that door wide open with their poorly executed attempt at humor. It created a dialog that twisted the liberal ideal that anyone that wasn’t considered a minority needs to check their privilege (which I will be discussing in my next blog). So instead of being told to keep our mouths shut, let’s open it up and talk about it.  I would love to hear your thoughts on reverse racism, and how it impacts our society.

Look for my next video blog, discussing this issue further. Thank you all for reading this, have a wonderful day, stay safe New Year’s Eve, and God bless.

    Because taking offense give the person using the word power over you. I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider that a desirable outcome.
