MSNBC: Capitalism Is Oppressive And Like Totally Racist

Because the Big Government socialist/Progressive policies have worked oh so well for Blacks

(Daily Caller) A guest on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” Wednesday told guest host Michael Eric Dyson that after activists deal with police brutality, they need to deal with “the oppressive force” of capitalism. (VIDEO: MSNBC Guest: ‘Foundation Of This Country Is Racism’ )

DYSON: The problem extends beyond police departments. What is the next institution that needs to be isolated and challenged?

“HIP HOP ACTIVIST” ROSA CLEMENTE: The economy. Capitalism! I think that’s the institution all over this country, it is really what is the oppressive force. And the police are actually in my opinion– and we have a lot of theory that proves this– are that force that are keeping us as particularly working class people from achieving this idea of, you know, economic justice. Economic justice is not devoid from racial justice, just like it’s not devoid of gender justice.

Two questions: The Ed Show is still on? MSNBC must be having trouble getting worker bees. Second, what the heck is a “Hip Hop Activist”? Only in Liberal World.

… Also in the classroom here at California State University Los Angeles in the Pan-African Department, my students are having those conversations. These are working class students, going to school full time working two jobs and continually being harassed by the police at many different levels. So I think what these young people are talking about, is now, as we are talking about policing, how are we talking again about the system, particularly the economic system that really from birth determines how we’re going to be looked on?

I love how this pronouncement is being made at a station that is part of the capitalist system. Companies pay for ads, which allow MSNBC to operate. But, we shouldn’t be surprised. Progressives are constantly denouncing capitalism. At least for Other People. They certainly like making and keeping their own earned money. Now we have them linking capitalism to raaaaacism. Two great comments

Those against capitalism are those who are unable compete on their own merits.

They fear the meritocracy, they abhor the competition, they reject personal responsibility.

Clemente is yet another in a long line of hardcore Leftist teachers teaching insanity. Blacks have been kept down in soul crushing poverty and stagnation for decades and decades thanks to Democrat Big Government Leftist policies. Some fortunately escape thanks to the capitalist system.

    Our economic system is agnostic about race in principle. In practice, since our system has evolved to serve the wealthy, and people of color are overrepresented in the non-wealthy, our economic system does oppress Blacks. And working class whites. And Hispanics. In fact. All the working class folks in America suffer because of policies enacted to serve the wealthy.

    You have next to nothing in terms of knowledge about the economy, so how can you sit and pontificate about something for which you know nothing? Oh, I forgot, you are a liberal so you can just dish out crap without having to be responsible for justifying your statements. What a jerk. Also, you exhibit a clear superiority to these groups by denigrating them in this manner.

    Of course libs would call capitalism “racist”. That’s because capitalism produces winners and losers. Liberalism can’t tolerate losers, therefore it must not be people’s bad choices that puts them where they are, but rather someone else’s fault, namely racism, to explain away the difference in people’s places on the economic ladder. Unable to expalin why some lose-namely lack of intelligence, work wthic or drive to succeed, ect., they come up with their excuse for everything- racism. Perpetual victims

    I’m a liberal and I say capitalism is not racist. The problem is that we no longer have free markets in the US, but have a system rigged to support the wealthy, at the expense of the middle class. It’s no accident that the rewards from the improving economy are accruing to the 1%.

    I actually agree with you, our system is rigged. That is because of far too much involvement from the government. As a consequence, they have tilted the balance so that only friends and associates of politicians can thrive. Example, one need look no further than the green initiatives of Obama and his giving millions to his buds. Then we have the politicians currying favor with concepts such as minimum wage that really does not allow business of set the price for workers at any level and forces jobs offshore were there is less intrusion. So, get the government out of our lives and capitalism can work once again.
