We Can Break Free of Race Grievance Treachery (Part 4 of 4)

RESURRECTING PURPOSE AND MORALITY

“We do not live in the Past, but the Past in Us.”- U. B. Phillips

Choice: America is the most religiously plural, ethnically diverse, and socially mobile culture to arise in recorded history. The group that suffered sacrificially to insure these freedoms for all groups now denies the most precious of these to its own members. Its members must subscribe to a strict political orthodoxy and maintain a relationship with other groups that presuppose their ongoing victimization. All groups must disavow Race Grievance hustlers and advocate abiding respect for personal choice.

Equality: Human’s have both the largest brains and correspondingly broad and divergent interests by which to tax them. These interests are influenced and nurtured by diverse social and cultural imperatives, personal experiences, and talents. It is therefore unfathomable that those sharing similar influences would be expected to possess or pursue the same interests in identical proportions as those sharing different influences. Where influence converges, more often interests converge. Equality reflects ones right to pursue their personal interests, however it is not a measure of their success.

Feminism: Modern feminist dogma presented gender as a social construct. It assured women that despite career conflicts and biological clock issues, the feminist model would lead to more fulfilling relationships, not a battle of the sexes that no one would win. Feminism was particularly discordant for groups operating, often by necessity, in matriarchal models. All must recognize that men and women are equally gifted, talented, and deserving, yet they often possess different inspiration and aspirations. Femininity and masculinity both rock absent prefabricated agendas and limitations.

Standards: There are any number of products considered to be the class of their industry, some of which can also be directly associated with a particular group; “get theirs it’s the best”. The same can be said of functional and intellectual value added services; “hire them, they know how to handle it”. There are also groups that inspire mistrust and lack of confidence. Being the standard of one area delivers collateral benefits to other areas of endeavor; standards rarely succumb to pricing. No group can prosper without continually striving for standard status.

Civility: While youth should be afforded a right and time of passage, there are boundaries. Superfluous profanity, music containing explicit lyrics, invasive verbal levels, inappropriate public discussions, and confiscation of commercial facilities for other than their intended purpose, are vulgar displays of personal insecurity. Mutual disrespect is not the new civility. Consideration takes both personal confidence and courage.

Spirituality: Morality cannot be discerned by referendum or analysis of the benefits arising from specific human interaction and behavior. All people are endowed with an inalienable moral imperative, resisting and enforcing their strongest and most urgent inclinations. However, morality has two conflicted sources of inspiration, one based on truth, and the other on deception. Discernment is only possible in the light of relationship and revelation with the Creator.

HONEST ASSESSMENT IS INEVITABLE

 “Truth crushed to the earth, will rise again”— Martin Luther King Jr.

 Pandemic Crime: Parents, family, and friends suffer unimaginable pain and anguish over the loss of a loved one, especially at the hands of another. One group has a murder rate many times higher than that of all other groups combined. The same group commits all but a small percent of violent interracial crimes and many times more robberies than any other group. As a result of such staggering disparities, virtually all young men in this group evoke apprehension and suffer the embarrassment of otherwise unwarranted suspicion. All Americans (Black, White, Hispanic, Asian…), to include Race Grievance hustlers, profile this group in some manner or another.

Evergreen Excuses: One argument advanced by Race Grievance hustlers to explain why one group is vastly over represented among the criminally incarcerated, suggest it is due to the groups disproportionate drug related arrest and prosecution. This is a baseless argument; eliminating consideration of drug related incarcerations (already dramatically reduced by previous prosecutorial referendums) only nominally reduces the group’s highly disproportionate representation. Nevertheless, such claims actually float race hustler boats; blaming others for a particular groups behavior or circumstances is critical to race hustler’s grievance underwritten strategy.

Exposing Race Hustlers or Accepting Personal Responsibility are considered Treason

Fabricated Integrity: In 1950, three-fourths of one group’s families had two parents, but by 2012 the share had fallen to about one-fourth. Yet today it is not unusual to know men from this group, who have fathered multiple children with multiple women, without having ever materially participated in parenting or financially supporting any of them. These same men (counterfeit “ballers”) expect other men to be complicit in their deception (“the man code”) as they seek to victimize the next woman. No wonder women of this and other groups largely mistrust men, particularly from this group.

Deserted Values: Disingenuous treatment and vastly unqualified partner options, have led more women to embrace the High Bidder relationship model. In this model the opening bid by a male suitor can be as low as a supply of baby formula or help with a past due utility bill, or as high as a pair of Ugg boots or Christian Louboutin pumps. Sadly, many High Bidders, to which men of this group often add an additional “B”: are mothers who live with their mothers, invest unwisely in chic fashion, park their vintage cars around the corner out of view of the Club, and suffer such low emotional self-esteem that indigent sperm donor only baby-daddies are welcome suitors.

Crippled Dreams: Dreams provide covering to encapsulate cores comprised of personal talents, goals, preparation, sacrifice, and persistence; dreams are both essential and fragile. The impersonal nature of today’s android like social media and sexual hookup culture, further diminish beneficial shared values and blur essential precepts underlying relational integrity. No wonder dream sabbaticals and dream hopping have supplanted a discernible sense of purpose and destiny.

PART 2 OF 4: THE HEINOUS SIEGE OF THE RACE GRIEVANCE HUSTLERS

“Everybody has asked the question . . . ‘What shall we do with the Negro?’ I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us!” – Frederick Douglass

The Zimmerman case became a race case after it was re-released by the Race Grievance Industry, whose multi-racial race-hustler staff includes media pundits, scavenger politicos, and grievance carpetbaggers. The case was billed as “the new age lynching of a genteel black boy by a rabidly racist white man”, a Race Grievance hustler blockbuster. Never mind Zimmerman is as Hispanic as President Obama is Black, but race hustlers know nothing plays or pays like white on black conflict. The only jurors to have spoken both said “the case was never about race”.

Afterward a Juror said the trial felt to her “like a publicity stunt”

The President was right; Trevon could have been him, a prospect even more likely in cities such as Flint, Detroit, New Orleans, St. Louis, Baltimore, Birmingham, Newark, Oakland, Baton Rouge, Cleveland, Memphis and a host of others to include his hometown of Chicago. In these cities and others like them, such heartbreak abounds. These victims are seldom represented by more than a case-number juxtaposed with the case-numbers of other homicide victims. These victims hold no attraction for attention-addicted and capital-craving Race Grievance hustlers; these victims and their assailants are predominantly black.

In America, race hustling has achieved market status, boasting industry leaders, fast followers, and ample opportunity for all who can hold their noses tightly and long enough. Like hedge funds that bet against products they might own (buying insurance predicated on failure of the underlying securities), Race Grievance hustlers place bets only where they control exacerbation of racial animus and indignation. Like the private trading desk of commercial banks, the Race Grievance hustlers provide benefits to a select few at the expense of the much larger constituency it purports to serve. Tragically, true racial grievances are subsumed in the camouflage and mirage of the capital hustle.

In America, even artificial racial conflict infuses tragedy with staying power like nowhere else in the western world. Race Grievance hustlers provide all communities synthetic opportunities to both brandish and cloak their hate, and ample occasions for certain communities to lament and pay tribute to their abiding sense of guilt. Certain tragedies become race hustler gold mines when marinated in racial animus; like fracking for oil or gas, verdicts for or against offer huge indignation exploitation potential.

Race Hustlers are far more motivated by Celebrity and Capital than Justice or Peace

A powerful weapon wielded by Race Grievance hustlers to hold sway over their willing and unwilling supplicants is unrelentingly enforced silence. Silence is enforced by the fear of cultural death sentences that can’t be appealed, where some are declared Racist and yet others Race Traitors. However, Race hustlers don’t require those who harbor hate or guilt to maintain corresponding political or social allegiance, they consider doing nothing the most valuable contribution a supplicant can make.

Many succumb to this code of silence out of fear that others who also observe the code may be informers in waiting, and after watching resisters and the imprudent cower before Race Grievance hustlers begging for restoration or clemency. Should one be sentenced after a trail by slander, no matter their former stature, the rabid race hustler infantry will declare jihad on the transgressor’s reputation and on those who dare to remain in relationship. As in the Soviet Gulag era, one could suffer the wrath of the race hustler infantry for merely considering an opinion or option different that they espouse.

Race Grievance Hustlers and their Cohorts drive all Americans further from Relationship

Race Grievance hustlers who can foment hate realize much more enduring and broader control (nuclear weapon) than those who can only foment guilt (conventional weapon). Fear of Race Grievance hustlers has been inculcated within the culture and fabric American communities and political movements. Most Race Grievance hustlers are first anointed by media pundits as spokespersons for a particular group or cause. Top tier Race Grievance hustlers are often elected to office on the winds of pundit endorsement. Whether liberal or conservative, neither bothers to respond to constituent demands, instead commanding their emotional, intellectual and ultimately spiritual submission.

Just as derivative-instruments affect and exploit zero sum securities volatility, race hustlers affect and rely on both inwardly and outwardly focused relationship volatility. When inwardly focused constituents develop diminished respect for one another, and when outwardly focused groups see all other groups as rivals. To resist, individuals must first grasp an appreciation of the divinely human and wonderful gift of free will they possess, and then exercise it to begin to form a personal cultural polarity and presence.

Nevertheless, beware that a simple declaration that you prefer to grant the benefit of due process to all when possible before judging, or daring to exercise your political right be a staffer for a group disapproved by the Race Grievance hustlers assigned to superintend your thoughts and actions, carries the potential that you might be suspended from or declared not to be an authentic member of the group.

WE CAN BREAK FREE OF RACE GRIEVANCE TREACHERY

 PART 1 OF 4: COURAGE WHEN FEELINGS AND FACTS REFUSE TO COALESCE

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”- John Adams

The deaths of Oscar Grant and Trevon Martin were heartbreaking for their families and emotionally dismembering for the nation. Grant, a former convicted drug dealer who’d recently been fired from his job, encountered transit police to include officer Johannes Mehserle, after disembarking from public transportation. Martin, a high school student living of late in a new community with his father, encountered George Zimmerman upon returning from a local 7-Eleven store.

The tragic deaths of these young men were precipitated by wholly unnecessary violent confrontations. The circumstances and documentary evidence overwhelmingly establish the deadly malfeasance of officer Johannes Mehserle. Whether one accepts officer Mehserle’s account that he mistakenly drew his Service Revolver rather than his Taser as intended, he was found guilty of involuntary-manslaughter; the transit operator also conceded to its financially liability.

The circumstances and documentary evidence proved considerably less convincing with regard to George Zimmerman’s actions during his encounter with teenager Trevon Martin. Nevertheless, Trevon’s death call laws that allow a person carrying a concealed weapon to effectively execute an unarmed and likely unsuspecting adversary into question. Laws that don’t compel more than a modicum of responsibility to mitigate the use of deadly force are certifiably more barbaric than enlightened.

The Facts didn’t rise to Humane Standards justifying Deadly Force

Media pundits have always expertly sliced and diced (“spin”) the facts until they comport with the passions of the moment or predilections of the season. As always, facts that fail to support specific positions, are first excoriated and then recast, or dismissed as unthinking and out of touch with authentic-reality. Media pundits demand that disagreeable facts, to include eyewitness testimony and incontrovertible forensic evidence, comport by any means necessary with their vision of authentic-reality.

We should all learn from the painful but heroic example set by Zimmerman juror B29 (the only juror of color) during deliberations, who stated, “in our hearts we felt he was guilty…but we had to grab our hearts and put it aside and look at the evidence”. We should also be concerned by the since of inerrancy we feel when tempted to disregard cogent but inconvenient facts. We should all pray for juror B29’s peace of mind.

It takes Courage to embrace Fact and Law over Intuition and Passion

Media pundits are well capable of fomenting righteous indignation, especially when calamity is borne on the wings of ethnic, gender, political, or economic grievance (e.g. Simpson, Peterson, Lewinsky, and Madoff). Media punditry is not dependent on the quality of laws on the books, nor judicial outcome, one way or the other. This is especially true where both racial animus (they’re still accosting members of our group) and indignation (they’re still refusing to exact justice on the assailants) can be brought to bear. In America, animus and indignation arising from conflicts between white people and people of color are perfect storms, summoning legacy issues and agendas on deck.

Some purported facts put forward by media pundits and repeated by many preceding the Zimmerman trial, gave rise to a hurricane of “community” inspired passion (athletes and politicians don hoodies); critical elements were contradicted by trial testimony, both for and against Zimmerman. The flash point of the charges and subsequent case: George Zimmerman was presented by national news organizations making overtly racist statements on a 911 audiotape. This very same audiotape was subsequently confirmed by Newsbusters to have been altered and first aired by NBC.

While NBC fired three people involved in altering the 911 audiotape, it apparently didn’t feel sufficient regret to acknowledge the travesty on air; a lawsuit filed against NBC has yet to be heard in court. State Attorney Prosecutors also withheld incriminating evidence (emails, text, and photos) form the Zimmerman defense team and fired their IT manager who disclosed the redaction; they subsequently faced sanctions in U.S. District Court. Contemporary media pundit culture requires everything to be red or blue, black or white, and facts to be for or against, no matter that facts by their nature are void of allegiance. No matter, the story stopped leading when it stopped bleeding.

Facts must either comport with pundit supposition or face the spin cycle
