Want to help race relations? Get involved in prison or pregnancy center ministries.

                  

Race had nothing to do with why I got involved in those ministries.  I’ll share the Gospel with anyone, whether you are a black convicted murderer or the best-behaved white pagan in the free world.  And I want to help save unborn children from murder regardless of their skin color.

But the nature of these ministries is such that it is mostly whites serving mostly minorities.  And as a fantastic by-product of sharing the love and truth of Christ with these folks it does marvelous things for race relations.  It pushes a giant reset button on those who have been wounded because of their race and/or steeped in their own racism.

It has changed countless prison environments, where skinheads and Black Panther-types have become friends and led their respective gangs to change.

I’ve seen countless inmates and even volunteers note how the ministries radically changed how they view others, and how they repented of their racism.

Here’s the story of a guy I know from prison ministry who was in the Aryan Brotherhood.   I saw him in action many times as a leader of the Christian groups inside prison and in the ways he is giving back now that he’s out of prison.  Let’s just say that he wasn’t transformed by the power of virtue-signaling social media posts.   

I realize that the race-baiting professionals of the Left — including the “Christian” Left — want to improve race relations as much as McDonald’s wants to sell less hamburgers.  If your movement demands tax-funded abortions to the child’s 1st breath that kill blacks at a rate three times that of whites and Hispanics at twice the rate, then you’ll have a tough time convincing me you really care about them.  But authentic Christians really do want to see improvements.   And ministries like these make it happen.

It is remarkably safe to say “Nazis are bad!” on Facebook in 2017 in the U.S.  If you really want to do something about race relations — and more importantly, the Gospel — try something more substantial.  Look into your local pregnancy resource center or prison ministries, or anything similar that shares the love and truth of Christ with minorities.

If Black Lives Matter really wanted to help blacks they would abandon the Democratic party

In other words, they are fighting the wrong people.  The Left has been using blacks for half a century.  Some do it out of malice (think: Clinton, Obama, etc. who abuse the poor to gain more power), some out of ignorance (think: bleeding hearts who like to sooth their consciences by giving away your money and rights) and some for both reasons. Here are a few examples of how the Left harms blacks.

  1. Illegal aliens take the jobs and/or suppress the wages of low income blacks. This is a simple and indisputable impact of the law of supply and demand.  Leftists love illegal aliens pouring into this country because it is an easy way for them to buy votes.
  2. Abortion kills blacks at a rate over three times that of whites, and the Left’s dream of taxpayer-funded abortions will take that even higher.  If literally taking the lives of innocent black children in this way doesn’t enrage BLM, then they are ignorant or complicit.
  3. Leftist government, education, media and entertainment continue to encourage out-of-wedlock sex and single parenting, which inevitably leads to poverty, crime and prison.  This happens regardless of race but happens more in black communities because of how the Left targets them with their welfare programs.
  4. Minimum wage policies will take away even more low-income jobs.  These jobs were never designed to support families.  Minimum skills will always yield minimum wages.  But these artificial, un-Constitutional wage increases inevitably cost jobs via automation (at some point a machine will be more cost-effective than a human) or lost hours (see the Leftists at Starbucks who have been mugged by reality).  The real minimum wage is always going to be zero, and more and more minorities are experiencing that thanks to the Left.
  5. Fostering racial tensions, especially with the police.  Obama & Co. have done everything possible to start race wars.  They have made poor neighborhoods more dangerous with the “Ferguson Effect,” where police have a drastically reduced incentive to respond quickly or to do any defensive maneuvers.  If you are going to be shot at or called a racist no matter what you do, why not just show up after the bodies are cold and fill out a report?  I feel for the law-abiding people who are slowly entering into anarchy.  But some BLM leaders actually want there to be no police.  What could go wrong?
  6. Gun grabbing.  The Left never misses an opportunity to exploit tragedies to try and take the guns of law-abiding people.  It is too bad no one represents the poor but law-abiding people in South Chicago to let them buy guns to legally defend themselves.
  7. Out of control schools.  When hoodlums are given a free pass to behave in any way they like in schools and not be kicked out then the good kids suffer.  The Left now considers it racist if minorities are disciplined more often than whites, regardless of the actual infractions.  The social contract to provide education to all children should have a caveat that if you don’t behave well then the parents are responsible.  And as always, the government unions and politicians just take turns giving each other your money instead of helping the children.  Even Leftists like FDR knew those unions should be forbidden.

The Democrats do all these at the expense of low-income blacks, but history shows that the blacks will vote for them anyway.  So why change?

So if you are a conservative and anyone asks what you are doing to help blacks, let them know that you are doing a lot: Fighting abortion that kills blacks at a rate three times that of whites, fighting illegal immigration that take the jobs and/or suppresses the wages of low-income blacks, improving their police protection, fighting for their right of self-defense, fighting minimum wage increases that will take their jobs, and more.

If the Starbucks barista tries to race-bait as you over-pay for bad coffee, tell them this

Apparently Starbucks is telling their employees to initiate conversations on race.  Via Dear Liberal Racists At Starbucks… » Louder With Crowder.

“Here’s your latte, Miss. Shall we put that on your Race Card”?… “Here’s your large decaf, sir. Would you mind setting aside your white privilege for a moment while I give this to that brown person in line behind you”?

Here’s my suggested response if they bring it up: Yes, let’s talk about race.  Did you know that abortion kills blacks at a rate three times that of whites, and that if the Democrats* get their dream of taxpayer-funded abortion it will go even higher?

Isn’t that kinda racist?

If the situations were reversed and conservatives supported abortion in the same way and liberals opposed it, wouldn’t we be hearing nonstop about how racist and genocidal conservatives are?  

Thanks for the coffee!

*Democrats are officially pro-abortion, not pro-choice.  Why?  Because they want taxpayer-funded abortions, laws requiring all health care plans to cover abortions, removal of conscience clauses for health care workers who don’t want to participate in child-killing, and no restrictions on anything, including “partial-birth abortion” (aka infanticide), late term abortions, gender-selection abortions, parental notification, etc.

From their platform: “The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”

False teacher Chuck Currie’s Ongoing Racism Problem

Race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie took a break from taking little girls to gay pride parades to do some more hypocritical race-baiting (must have been on his DNC to-do list today) — via The Tea Party’s Ongoing Racism Problem.

Tea Party members in New Mexico attached a Confederate battle flag to their float in a local parade.  People of faith must continue to condemn this extremism and demand that no one use race or religion or sexual orientation as a tool to divide people.

Remember, Chuck is the guy who is so pro-abortion that he thinks the government should confiscate money from taxpayers to pay for abortions.  And he knows that will increase the ratio of black abortions to whites beyond the current 3-to-1 ratio.  If wanting more dead black babies isn’t racism, I don’t know what is.  In fact, I’m certain that those babies would be less offended by a flag than have their skulls crushed and their limbs ripped off.

But Chuck & Co. don’t care about real people, they care about scoring cheap political points.

Yea for Wisconsin!

See Entitlement Rage: The Scene in Wisconsin When the Bill Passed | Verum Serum.

Watch the video.  Sure looks like a lot of angry white people.  Must be racists.  At least that was the meme about TEA Partiers.  Isn’t it odd that the mainstream media has ignored racial composition with this issue?

This is what happens when people get entitlements: They behave like that when you try to take away just a small portion of them.  Lessons learned: Don’t give them to begin with, because they are counterproductive.  Make sure you win when they use these violent and immature responses, otherwise you’ll encourage further bad behavior.

It is so sad that private sector people root for these spoiled government employees.  They are the ones driving up your taxes and giving you lousy service in return.  As noted separately, Texas — a non-union state — outscores Wisconsin on all student test scores when broken down by race.

Democrats own the unions, and unions own the Democrats.  Now is the time for any adults in government to curb public sector unions.

Oh, and about those Fleebaggers — if those were Republicans wouldn’t the Left be going on endlessly about dereliction of duty, etc.?  If the Republicans can’t milk the Wisconsin thing through 2012 they need to fire the whole marketing department.

Racism roundup

A few stories caught my eye the other day.  Just one question: How many of these did you see on MSNBC?  That’s what I thought.

NAACP Has No Interest In Addressing Racism Against Justice Clarence Thomas

The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”

In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a videoshowing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to theorganization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.”

“Last summer, the NAACP passed a resolution calling for a civil political discourse,” Shelton said in an e-mail to TheDC. “We continue to call on all Americans to abandon vitriolic language. It serves as a distraction from the real issues our society need to address and distorts the challenges we as Americans have to confront to make our nation greater still.”

Shelton would not, however, address the content of the video directly.

Civil rights commission finds that Obama administration has racist double standard

Remember the New Black Panthers voter intimidation story?

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights came out in December with a draft of its interim report on the New Black Panthers Party scandal. Earlier today a final report was posted on thecommission’s website, and with it, a flurry of rebuttals and separate statements from a number of the commissioners. The import of these statements should not be minimized.

The statements indicate several points: 1) the New Black Panther Party case brought by career Justice Department employees was meritorious on the law and the facts; 2) there is voluminous evidence of the Obama administration’s political interference in the prosecution of the New Black Panther Party case; 3) there is ample evidence that the Obama administration directed Justice Department employees not to bring cases against minority defendants who violated voting rights laws or to enforce a provision requiring that states and localities clean up their voting rolls to prevent fraud; 4) the Justice Department stonewalled efforts to investigate the case; and 5) vice chairman Abigail Thernstrom has, for reasons not entirely clear, ignored the evidence and tried to undermine the commission’s work.

Surprise! Bush economy led to accelerated growth of black-owned businesses

The number of black-owned businesses grew much faster than the national rate during the five years before the recession began, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The ranks of black firms shot up more than 60 percent from 2002 to 2007, compared with the overall national increase of 4 percent. By the end of the boom, Prince George’s County had the highest share of black-owned businesses – 55 percent – among all large counties in the nation.

Less clear is how those firms fared after the recession hit. The Census Bureau did not offer any information on how minority-owned businesses did after late 2007, when the economic downturn began.

Group of 99% whites raises money to destroy group of 76% blacks. Anyone else find that creepy?

As Jill Stanek noted:

“a predominantly White organization raises funds to help kill babies in a predominately Black city.” This seemed apparent by all the Caucasian attendees noted in the video as well as the party photos DCAF posted.

Anyone else wonder why the mainstream media doesn’t find that newsworthy, especially given their obsession with alleged TEA Party racism?  On the surface, would that seem a bit racist to anyone?  Is it a coincidence that Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist?

False teacher harms minorities in three ways

In a weak attempt to prove my last post wrong, Chuck does a copy and paste job to show that the “Reverend” is still at work:  “He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free”.

Chuck harms minorities in three major ways:

1. He is pro-abortion.  Not pro-choice, but pro-abortion.  He supported the Obamacare plan which will provide taxpayer-funded abortions.  And those will increase the already sickening three-to-one rate of black abortions to whites.  Apparently that isn’t high enough for the Planned Parenthood types who want to keep the black population down.

2. His liberal policies do great harm to blacks, but keeping them down and in the Democratic fold is all part of the plan.

3. He withholds the real Gospel from them.  “Releasing the captives” is more about releasing people from the bondage of sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus than it is about physical bondage.  But Chuck is too much of a biblical literalist to know that.

Race and gender

Harry Reid’s comments about President Obama’s skin color and speech revealed much. It shows who is really post-racial.

I wouldn’t have voted for someone with Obama’s views regardless of skin color. I would vote for someone of any skin color, including someone darker than Obama, if he or she held the right views. In other words, even though McCain wasn’t great, if he and Obama had switched views I would have voted for Obama.

Do some vote based on skin color? Sure, but it is, ironically enough, a minority – just like some wouldn’t vote for Palin because she’s a woman.

But the media forgot to point out that regardless of what you thought of Palin’s views, the support for her annihilated the canard that conservatives as a group are sexist. The Left hated her because she destroyed the “conservatives are anti-women” meme, plus the fact that she didn’t have her son destroyed just because he had Down Syndrome or because she had too many kids already.

The same goes for skin color. Conservatives are more likely to focus on ideas, not race or gender.

The speech pattern comment was irrelevant. Anyone who speaks in a profoundly inarticulate way won’t get elected regardless of skin color. (And spare me the President Bush jokes unless you are willing to concede how badly Obama stumbles without a TelePrompTer.)

Reid really tipped his hand about his core beliefs. And how hypocritical that Conservatives who make racially insensitive remarks are destroyed but Liberals who do so are pre-forgiven. Shouldn’t the stakes for the Politically Correct crowd be at least as high if not higher? Wasn’t Reid guilty of hate speech?

Roundup

Why do blacks give 90% support to pro-choice politicians?  Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood founder, was buddies with the KKK and aggressively sought to reduce the black population.  But you can totally trust Planned Parenthood today — er, uh, except for their serial statutory rape cover-ups and their destruction of blacks at a rate three times that of whites . . .

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.

PP still uses “religious” leaders as useful idiots in advancing their culture of promiscuity and death.

Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings Hasn’t Been Fired Yet? — Nope. (Hat tip: The Other McCain)

This isn’t a gay/straight issue. It’s a *creepy, pervvy, cultural Marxist who recommends hardcore kiddie porn to school aged kids being put in charge of “Safe Schools” by Obama and their creepy defenders (Media Mutters)* issue.

How PBS uses your tax dollars to distort the evidence for evolution — they use selective images to imply that the appearance of similar embryonic shapes at a point in time somehow prove macro-evolution.  They should be de-funded for this and many other reasons.  If their supporters can’t keep them afloat without taxing those who oppose them then they should die off — you know, that survival of the fittest thing.  Funny how the evolutionists once again aren’t living consistently with their worldview.

What viewers may not know—and PBS does not tell them—is that the interactive exercise shows embryos midway through development. The earliest stages are systematically omitted.

Ann Coulter on airline security

An alien from the planet “Not Politically Correct” would have surveyed the situation after 9/11 and said: “You are at war with an enemy without uniforms, without morals, without a country and without a leader — but the one advantage you have is they all look alike. … What? … What did I say?”

A great response to the canard that people who leave their spouses to pursue same-sex relationships are “brave”

  • There’s nothing brave about marrying a woman when you know you prefer men.
  • There’s nothing brave about being unfaithful to her with men.
  • There’s nothing brave about taking solemn vows that you know you’re not likely to be able to keep.
  • There’s nothing brave about telling your teammates when you know that if any of them express disapproval, warn you of the serious health consequences or even crack a joke they’ll be visited by the police and accused of a hate crime.
  • There’s nothing brave about breaking your wife’s heart.
  • There’s nothing brave about saying you’ve always been in love with her and are still in love with her when you plainly don’t understand what it means.
  • There’s nothing brave about putting ‘the way I want to live my life’ above everybody else’s hurt.
  • There’s nothing brave about treating sex as if it’s the most powerful thing in life that cannot be resisted and somehow justifies whatever you want to do.

PZ Myers is predictably confused about morality.  Again.  As with many postmoderns and atheists he insists there is no universal morality but can’t go three sentences without making moral claims.  In this case, he can’t even finish a single sentence without contradicting himself. 

In the absence of a god-given absolute morality, all that matters is how we treat one another in this one life we have. What flows naturally to me is not brutality, which requires an absence of awareness of the suffering of others, but recognition of the fact that my fellow human beings really are my equals: we’re all going to die, we only have these few brief decades of life, and who am I to deny someone else the same opportunities I’ve been given?

Who “gave” PZ those opportunities?  Things don’t give things, persons give things.  And of course, he is pro-abortion.  What a wonderful way to “treat one another in this one life we have.”

Liberal Democrats have repeatedly failed minorities — Yep.  Liberals have had virtual monopolies on inner city politics and schools for over 50 years.  Detroit is their petri dish.  Anyone want to move there?  Great deals on real estate!

Gynecologists in Spain plan to choose jail before performing an abortion — Who do they think they are?  What makes them think they should have a choice about abortion?  Don’t worry, the removal of conscience clauses are coming soon to a country near you.

Multimillionaire Michael Moore says capitalism did nothing for him 

Consider this a complement to Hollywood going to bat for Polanski: In both cases, you’ve got “artists” so insulated by egotism, sycophancy, and self-righteousness that they simply can’t grasp that average people are looking on aghast at what they’re saying. No one with even a child’s sense of shame would defend a child-rapist or demonize a system he’s used to line his own pockets, and yet, somehow, here we are.

Blog post title of the week: Palin’s Book Makes Number One on Amazon; Left-Wingers Make Number Two in Their Jeans

Ann Coulter annihilates the canard that “America’s low ranking on international comparisons of infant mortality proves other countries’ socialist health care systems are better than ours.”

One factor contributing to the U.S.’s infant mortality rate is that blacks have intractably high infant mortality rates — irrespective of age, education, socioeconomic status and so on. No one knows why.

By excluding the little guys, these countries have simply redefined about one-third of what we call “infant deaths” in America as “miscarriages.”

Apart from the fact that we count — and try to save — all our babies, infant mortality is among the worst measures of a nation’s medical care because so much of it is tied to lifestyle choices, such as the choice to have children out of wedlock, as teenagers or while addicted to crack.

Also contributing to the higher mortality rate of U.S. newborns: Peter Singer lives here.

But I think it’s terrific that liberals are finally willing to start looking at outcomes to judge a system. I say we start right away with the public schools!

Funny stuff — Colbert vs. Richard Dawkins — It was mostly for humor, of course, but I enjoyed the ridiculousness of Dawkins’ answer about the existence of beauty.  He gave his question-begging “we evolved to be able to see it” answer but (deliberately?) ignored the fact that there is no more grounding for true beauty in a Darwinian model than there is for morality.

Guest post: The Day of the Covenant

Welcome to another guest post, this one by Michael (aka Racing Boo).  I enjoy Michael’s thoughtful and often humorous comments so I asked him to do a guest post on a topic of his choice.  I hope you read and enjoy a fascinating look in to the history and politics of South Africa. 

—–

December 16 is a public holiday in South Africa, celebrated officially as such for more than a century. Today it is called the ‘Day of Reconciliation’, but for most of those years it was known as the ‘Day of the Covenant.’ It was on this day in 1838, on the banks of the Ncome River in what is now the Kwa-Zulu Natal province, that the Boer leader Andries Pretorius led the people under his protection and leadership in making a vow, binding on future generations. If God would deliver them from the attacking Zulu impis (fighting units), they would henceforth celebrate the day as a Sabbath, and build a church to honour his name.

The Boers were farmers (that is the literal meaning of the word) who had left the frontier farms of the Cape Colony to escape the British rule that was entrenched by the early 1800s, and the endless border wars with the native Xhosa. They were strict Calvinists, descended from French and Dutch settlers who had fled religious persecution in those countries during the preceding two centuries. The British had little time for them, and offered them no protection, so they took their cattle and all their possessions loaded into their ox wagons, which were houses on wheels, and began the trek northwards. That word, perhaps the only word from the Afrikaans language to make it into mainstream global English, means ‘to pull’ or ‘to move’ in the sense of moving from one area to another, in this case boldly going where no (white) man had gone before.

They soon encountered other indigenous tribes of the region, in particular the mighty Zulu nation, the ‘people of the sky.’ The Zulu king at the time was Dingane, who had come to power in 1828 after assassinating his famous and even more notorious half-brother Shaka. One of the Boer leaders, Piet Retief (my wife Nadia is a direct descendant of one of his daughters), left the area of the Tugela River in February 1838 in the hope that he could broker permanent boundaries for the Natal settlement with Dingane. At the royal kraal near present-day Eshowe, an agreement was signed, ceding land in return for the recovery of some 7000 head of cattle stolen by a rival local chief, Sekonyela. Dingane then invited Retief and his men (there were about 100 in total, including his son) to a feast, which lasted several days. They were obliged to leave their weapons outside the enclosure.

Dingane put on a military display for his guests, but the climax of this was not a friendly goodbye. From a nearby hilltop, during a sudden silence, Dingane raised his stick and shouted “Bulalan’ abathakathi!” – Kill the Wizards! There are eye-witness accounts from the Zulu side, as well as one Boer who managed to escape with his life as he had been left outside the kraal to guard the weapons. One can only imagine the fear and terror of that moment, enhanced by the ululating kikiza cry of the women. Retief was apparently the last to die, and he fought back to the last breath.

The reasons for this massacre (apart from Dingane’s treachery, that is) are the subject of much speculation. It is believed that Retief may have unwittingly broken an obscure tribal law by retaining some of the cattle recovered from Sekonyela. Another explanation is that on the night before the massacre, the Boers had rounded up some of their horses outside the kraal in preparation for departure the follwing day. Dingane would have heard the sounds of the hooves at night, and there was a belief that wizards of the white race rode on horses at night. Whatever the reasons, the white settlements of Natal were now in trouble. Dingane sent his impis to attack several encampments, including one at Weenen where 500 men, women and children were killed. The settlers then called for help from another Boer leader, Andries Pretorius, asking him to leave the Cape Colony and come to their aid against the Zulu.

I am so sick of the race card

I am so tired of the race card being played every time someone disagrees with President Obama.  From now on I’ll just treat it as the pathetic concession speech that it is — i.e, “I have no arguments against your position, so I’ll call you a racist.  I win!”

It isn’t the color of his skin, it is the thickness, along with his awful ideas. 

Do you seriously think we’d be opposing a 100% black person who was pro-life, anti-socialism, etc.?  I wouldn’t care if the whole administration was non-white as long as they weren’t pro-abortion, pro-government takeover of one thing after another (health care, automotive, banking, etc.), and more.

To those playing the race card: We achieved Rev. King’s dream of judging people by their character instead of their skin color a long time ago.  Come join us, it is a great way to live! 

Does racism still exist?  Sure, but not in a large enough way to influence the opposition to Obama.  Remember, his poll numbers are falling faster than any President in history.  Do you seriously think that the “racists” just realized he was black and changed their views?

Great fact-filled piece by Ann Coulter about the Professor Gates affair

Senate drops “death panel” provision — you know, the death panel that didn’t exist.

Barack, I know Abe Lincoln, and you ain’t Abe Lincoln

Another one of President Obama’s deceptions about his plans for abortion funding.  Here’s part of what he said two years ago:

Obama responded quite clearly he planned for abortion not only to be part of taxpayer-funded health care but also forcibly covered by private insurers. He added he thought it “important” for the United States’ largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, to be part of his plan.

“Well, look, in my mind reproductive care is essential care. It is basic care. And so it is at the center and at the heart of the plan that I propose. Essentially … we’re gonna set up a public plan … that will provide all essential services, including reproductive services.We also will subsidize those who prefer to stay in the private insurance market – except the insurers are going to have to abide by the same rules in terms of providing comprehensive care, including reproductive care.”

The MP3 file is here.

Here are the objections he addressed:

  1. Just because something is unlikely doesn’t mean that it was designed because improbable things occur all the time.
  2. You can’t infer design if the object is sub-optimally designed, or exhibits evil
  3. But intelligent design is just re-packaged creationism
