June, 2020: If you’re Oprah and you wanted to overrun 16 or 18 TV networks and have a Special about Race and America, I’m pretty sure you could have gotten whomever you wanted for your ZOOM call.
Did she get somebody like Condi Rice, who grew up in the Demo-Klan/Jim Crow South, and went on to become one of the most accomplished women in America over the last 30 years? No.
Did she get Clarence Thomas, who grew up dirt poor, went through a radical Leftist stage in college, and went on to overcome the racist smear job by Joe Biden and Edward Kennedy to become a Supreme Court Justice?
Did she get somebody like Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina - he of "Uncle Tim" fame? Maybe Thomas Sowell, a famous author and noted expert on social and cultural issues? Maybe even Colin Powell, who once pretended to be a Republican?
No and Nope and uh-uh.
No – she assembled a menagerie of Leftist professors, authors, movie stars and organizers along with the only name I recognized: The failed gubernatorial candidate from Georgia (and gap-toothed Michael Strahan look-alike) Stacey Abrams.
I mean, if we were supposed to be looking at things and solving them, wasn’t "diversity of thought and experience" necessary? Isn't that what the Left had been preaching at us for decades? Because this panel of so-called experts was lock-step in their agreement that America must be taken apart to pay for her sins from the 17th Century.
Once two of the guys started dismantling Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, at which point I had my Answer for Oprah: Where Do I Go from Here? I’m going to bed, bitch. They took issue with "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
Two panelists – with whom Oprah quickly agreed – said that we must first and foremost notice skin color, or lack thereof, or else we will never be able to acknowledge privilege and prejudice: 50-60 years of teaching us to see people for who they are and not what hyphenated subphylum or race they belong to killed off in 15 minutes by Oprah et al. Nice job, y’all. Of course, considering Obama and Kamala Harris, it's no wonder they don't want to focus on character...
One idiot also did a little ‘balance scale’ with his hands indicating that when anybody not of color succeeds, it necessarily means that somebody of color is held back – a zero-sum game that begs the question: Does that mean if somebody of color succeeds, that by necessity, some White person fails? If you believe one, you have to believe the other (I don’t believe either, by the way…) This is the shit that happens when you hand out “Studies” degrees – I guarantee you half these racist imbeciles had “Studies” degrees…
So, where did we go from there, one year ago this week? Well - we saw attempts to defund the police answered with homicides that increased by 36% across 28 major U.S. cities—including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Detroit and Philadelphia—between June and October 2020, when compared to the same time period last year. Per the GVA, (Gun Violence Archives) 2020’s total gun homicides had, by the end of October, already exceeded that of the past four years.
