A reader who self-identifies as “suck it” has commented on my post “Black Lives Don’t Matter Part II” with the incisive thought-provoking question “are you kidding me”. I made a reply at the post [here], and promised a longer response, herewith:
To answer: no, I am not kidding you. I stand behind everything I said in the post. Read it again and see if you can compose a comprehensible question that we can discuss like adults. Maybe/maybe not.
You are being kidded, but not by me. So who is kidding you?
President Obama is kidding you; he has made nothing better for blacks in his eight years in office. Just dismissive political rhetoric. More blacks have less job opportunity than when he took office. As he encourages states to mandate a higher minimum wage, you are charmed. But have you noticed that fewer of you are working? Need proof? Go to McDonalds and buy yourself a Big Mac from the self-serve ordering kiosk that is already replacing you.
OK, so the machines cost $50K, but there are upsides. The machine is purchased only once; unlike the recurring expense for human workers who don’t turn up for their shift, who steal from the till, who insult customers in the drive thru, who spit in food ordered by Law Enforcement Officers. The machine pays for itself in much less than a year from salary savings when two staff are let go. Bonus? The owner has a lot less labor headache.
The mayor of Chicago is kidding you. This year-to-date 3,140 Chicago citizens have been shot. 78% black, 487 deaths. Someone is shot in Chicago every 2 hours and someone else is killed every 12 hours. [Hey Jackass has the statistics].
Given the present trend of black-on-black killings and the black abortion rate at 67%, I expect that there will always be Chicago blacks, but there won’t be too many more of you than there are right now.
You will remain stuck at 13% of the population, while the responsible, hard-working Hispanics are leaving you in the dust.
And as I was shocked to learn in the 1990s, you hate them, too.
Pro Tip: you might want to avoid disrespectin’ the Hispanics aggressively, like you do whitey. That won’t go well for you.
The President and the Mayors of Baltimore, Detroit, Ferguson, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Memphis, Cleveland, Atlanta and Long Beach have spent their time in office inflaming your sense of victim-hood and they have done a fine job. You have become and remain convinced that you cannot do anything to help yourself except impregnate unwed women and deal drugs on street corners. Anything you want that is not handed to you by the Government is a clear sign of racism and it shows “the man is keeping you down”.
Martin Luther King Jr. is turning over in his grave so fast, his remains are miles away from where he was buried.
And you will never be happy no matter what happens.
