Why Are Liberals Engaged In A War On Black Girls?

America’s war on Black girls: Why McKinney police violence isn’t about “one bad apple”
Many have been quick to dismiss or make excuses for the shocking video out of Texas. Here’s the truth of the matter

In just over two months, we will commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a natural disaster that ravaged communities along the Gulf Coast. This tragedy was made infinitely worse not only by decades of governmental neglect and far-ranging poverty, but also by the fact that so many Black people could not swim.

That nearly 60 percent of Black people cannot swim is directly attributable to decades of segregated pool facilities in this country. While that problem ostensibly went away with the desegregation efforts of the mid-20th century, de facto segregation of pool facilities persists to this day, because community pools are now largely private amenities in suburban neighborhoods that many Black youth don’t have access to.

Got that? Even though segregation ended long ago, by law, it’s the fault of White People not allowing Blacks to swim in their pools. Because there wouldn’t be massive lawsuits and stuff if they were denied access to a public pool. Interestingly, so many of these areas with public pools where Blacks live are in Deep Democrat areas, so, this means that Democrats are racists and want Black girls, and boys, to die. Let’s also not forget that, during the era of Jim Crow and through the 60’s, the areas that had segregation were Democrat areas.

In fact, swimming skills are sorely lacking in all races in the US. I grew up at the beach, and swam competitively through high school, and continued surfing for decades, though I’d say my swimming skills aren’t what they used to be. But, I can tread for a long time, and swim plenty of laps still. I also taught swimming when I was younger. These skills are ones I’d say most need, and, perhaps instead of spending time on worthless leftist endeavors at school, time could be spent teaching swimming skills. Of course, since Democrats have made majority-minority urban areas so dangerous with their soft on crime policies, pool might not be particularly safe.

White people in the aggregate value the “safety” of their private, segregated, residential spaces far more than they value a system of policing that protects and values all lives equally. It is clear that the anxiety that many white suburban residents feel about having their communities “overrun” by Black people feels far more “traumatizing” to them than having to stand idly by while a few teens get roughed up by the police. If the cost of making white people safe is more than a few Black communities being systematically traumatized and made always to feel unsafe, then so be it. The notion of white safety has its foundations in Indigenous, Black and Brown unsafety. Until white people begin to question the violent origins of such a concept, the police will continue in the name of “white safety” to go around terrorizing communities of color, mostly with impunity.

Let’s get very un-PC for a moment: why are Whites always supposed to give up their values? Why must they always pay the price? Why are we not allowed to advocate for our own safety? Why is it that only other races, in particular Blacks, are allowed to protect their own race?

    Now I’m curious. Do blacks in Africa have a higher percentage of swimmers?

    I live in a suburban neighborhood composed of whites, Asians, Hispanics, Indians, and various middle easterners. Everybody gets along well and the kids play with each other, study, and try to get into whatever colleges they can.

    We do have some black visitors. They come and steal mail and packages, break into houses, break into cars, and sell scams. They are usually organized gang members from nearby cities. Most people spend money on extra security methods to deter the blacks. They scare people because there have been hot break-ins, and if a black is seen wandering around the neighborhood, one of the whites, Asians, Hispanics, Indians, or middle easterners invariably calls the cops. Just the other day the Indian grandmother who lives next door saw a black man looking in her door window, called the cops, and as they ran him off the black man made pistol fingers at the grandmother and pretended to shoot her.

    Here’s the thing: some of us despise you, although fewer than you believe, but most of us plain don’t care about you or your doings. There was a time when we did care, but you betrayed our good will and played us for fools. We laugh about it now, but we actually believed you wanted equal opportunity and mutual respect and to live in harmony—all that stuff. Ain’t it a hoot? Imagine our embarrassment.

    why are Whites always supposed to give up their values?

    Which values are you referencing?

    Oppressing others because of the color of the skin?

    Assuring that oppression by the actions of your police?

    Dominant position in the culture?

    Air of superiority?

    Anyway, these race-baiting posts by conservabloggers such as the Teach and the Gateway Pudendum (the odious jimhoft) are dog whistle calls to let their devoted readers vent about the vile Negroes.

  6. gitarcarver says:

    Which values are you referencing?

    The right to “judge” people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

    The right to follow the law and not mob rule.

    The right to speak ones mind, and not have a voice shut down because it “offends” someone.

    The right to assemble.

    The right to worship.

    Maybe you should actually read the Constitution because you are against most, if not all of the rights written therein.

    ……calls to let their devoted readers vent about the vile Negroes.

    As usual, liberals bring race into a conversation because they cannot debate without claiming others are racists. Of course, it is they who see everything through the prism of race but they will never see that because they are blinded by their own hypocrisy.

    Parks and Recreation Departments are in every town of any size, and if the town has public pools, they all offer swimming lessons, usually for a pittance. The YMCA normally offers swimming lessons, all sorts of organizations offer them. If someone doesn’t learn how to swim, either he is handicapped in some manner which prevents it, or he has chosen not to learn.

    The lovely Miss Cooper wrote this in terms which make a concern about safety seem raaaaacist, but it is — or at least ought to be — obvious that everyone is concerned about his family’s and his safety and security, far more than any concern about the safety, security and well-being of people he doesn’t know. That’s a natural, normal, human instinct.

    Anyway, these race-baiting posts by liberal bloggers are dog whistle calls to let their devoted readers vent about vile Christians.., and……..There, J, that’s how it should have gone, as there aren’t any race-baiters on the planet that compare to some of our black friends in the Democratic Party.
