A Positive Message…

Too often, “hip hop” songs emphasize predatory sex and glorify street gangs and crime.. but this is a hip hop song with a different message.. as strong a pro-life message as I have ever seen, reportedly based on the true story of the artist:

Like everything else in this world, music can be utilized as a force for evil, or for good.  The positive message embraced by this song and video of this guy on a fishing boat gives me great hope that the pro-life message will reach those who are most drastically in need of it.  A whole generation of great minds and awesome potential is far too often being flushed down a sink or placed in a garbage dumpster.

The Lynching Continues-Racism in The Media

Herman Cain was featured on a Holly Bailey hit piece the other day about the video in which Cain pokes fun regarding Anita Hill.

Herman Cain is defending himself from sexual harassment allegations, but that didn’t stop him from joking about Anita Hill, the college professor who made similar allegations against Clarence Thomas during his Supreme Court nomination hearings 20 years ago.

A Fox News camera captured Cain laughing about Hill during a campaign stop in Kalamazoo, Mich., Thursday, when a supporter brought up the professor’s name.

“You hear the latest news today? Anita Hill is going to come …” a man told Cain, the conclusion of his statement muffled by the crowd.

“Is she going to endorse me?” Cain joked, as he and the crowd laughed heartily.

Of course,

Cain insisted Friday he wasn’t trying to insult Hill.

“We walked into this room and … one of my supporters said, ‘Anita Hill was trying to contact you’ and my response was, ‘Is she going to endorse me?'” Cain told New York Post columnist Fred Dicker, per Politico. “He said it in a humorous way. I gave a humorous response.”

Even if Cain was trying to insult Anita Hill, the whole Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas thing was a joke to begin with-the first of many attempts to lynch powerful black people who dared strayed away from the white limousine liberal massas‘ plantation. Again… unproven allegations meant to lynch another –gasp!– conservative–gasp gasp– BLACK MAN. Yep.. no underlying racism, there…

But why am I particularly calling out Bailey’s piece as yet another media lynching of Cain?

Look at the accompanying picture they decided to post to go along with the story:

Will you take a look at that.. Herman Cain (with his wide-brimmed fedora) posing with two women, who just happen to be attractive..maybe even a little ghetto… My but if that doesn’t fit the stereotype of a black pimp, eh? No agenda on the part of photographers there, I mean, given that he probably posed for pictures with countless others that day.  No direct linkage of the photo with the story.  No thought as to the possibility that they could have posted a solo picture of Cain.  But again-no agenda there on the part of Holly Bailey or Yahoo News– nothing to see here–move along, now.

White Limousine Liberal massas and their charges in the media have often utilized racist, stereotypical images as a means of attaching an un-written narrative of dullard, Uncle-Tom-ish or downright gangsta personae to their other-than-white objects of conservative disdain.

Lest we forget…

Or this one of former RNC Chair Michael Steele

Or the ubiquitous…

There is one thing of which I am now more convinced than ever– liberals are absolute masters at projection, and these examples literally scream proof of that assertion.  Whenever disagreement with their ideas rears its ugly head, one can be sure that liberals will reflexively spit out a veritable machine-gun patter of epithets, which will inevitably contain the word, “RACIST;” at which point one can be assured that they are not, in fact, looking out a window, but rather in a mirror.

 

A Challenge for Morgan Freeman

My friend Ali A. Akbar found Morgan Freeman’s recent comments about the Tea Party to be quite disturbing, and as a Tea Party activist, has challenged Morgan Freeman to experience a Tea Party rally.

I’ve attended dozens of tea party events. I’ve helped organize them, and I’ve even spoken at a few. The tea party is not what is often depicted in the news. It is people of all colors who are terribly concerned about the direction that America is heading. We don’t trust big government to make decisions for us. And we fear that the present administration’s spending is going to lead our country down a path to insolvency, much like what Greece is currently facing.

Your comments about the tea party have caused me physical pain. You’ve rekindled the old painful paradigm of Uncle Tom – that any black man who votes Republican is some kind of sellout. It’s not true. I work hard, pay my taxes, love Jesus, and I’m good to my family and community. In effect, your comments have stereotyped an entire group of people. And I know in my soul that you must regret that on some level.

There’s already plenty of groupthink among American blacks. Over 90% of us vote Democrat with religious regularity, and we have been doing so for over fifty years. For a short time, I was one of them. I realized a few years ago that the Democrats’ promises of equality bestowed by government wasn’t working and will never work. I came to believe that redistributionist policies with the goal of social justice was essentially creating a new plantation within the federal government. Scraps might be thrown our way, but dependence on the plantation would be the inevitable result.

I urge you to read Ali’s entire piece.

Ali and I have been good friends for quite a few years now, and our backgrounds are very different. Even our politics, while at the conservative end of the spectrum, are different. I dare say that if we reviewed all of our positions he’d probably be more conservative than I am. However we got to where we are politically, our beliefs are genuinely our own. We both believe enough in our politics to have walked the walk and not just talked the talk. And it is a shame that celebrities like Morgan Freeman or Janeane Garofalo use their celebrity to stereotype roughly half of Americans and insult minorities just because they don’t conform to their close minded belief that black Americans are traitors to their race if they lean to the right, or that Republicans are inherently racist. Those attitudes do more to hurt race relations in this country than they realize.

I’d like to see Morgan Freeman take up Ali’s offer to attend a Tea Party event in Tennessee. Perhaps a little open-mindedness can usher in a new era of civility.
