White Conservatives Justify Their Racism By Claiming Black Criminals Are Racists

As the racial revolution continues, the conservative rag Conservative Tribune posted their meme on anti-racism above on Facebook saying that not all cops are bad and not all blacks are criminal…cops can’t be criminal? But the photo shows a heart from two hands depicting a black person and a white person. They even have the hashtag #stoplabeling. Is this their way of saying stop labeling cops as bad and blacks as criminals? Apparently, their followers don’t agree:

Moses ***** I agree with the first and third statements. The 2nd is harder to accept because blacks make up the majority of the prison population and the 3 whitest states: Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire also have the lowest crime rates. This is not racist but facts that don’t lie.

Beverly ***** The blacks are not racist – the ni****s are racist – there are good and bad in every race and racists in every race – I use the “N” word to distinguish the difference in them – I have black friends and they are every bit as disgusted with this whole Ferguson thing as everyone…and the white trash joining them will find out the hard way what they are doing is wrong!

Phil ***** Not all cops are bad but being racists runs deep in white and black alike

Glenn ***** There are white criminals. There are bad cops(black and white) and there are certainly black racists! When “labeling” an individual make sure it fits and not just arbitrary!

Thomas ***** Here’s the issue for me. ( I’m a white guy) I have plenty of friends that are not white, btw. As a white dude I’m constantly being told that race is not an issue, judge the person by that individuals traits. How is it ok for a double standard here? All the looters are using a thug pos as an excuse to loot all the while chanting hate towards white people. My problem is not knowing when enough is enough and when do I ( as a white pos) start standing up for the real Americans and my own ” race”? Am I to abandon my friendships because of this ignorance? Is this the plan handed down from my president, my America? It’s frustrating, and makes me doubt myself. I have seen more racism towards whites than any other minority during my life. Always someone Threatening to hurt a cracker. I hope these animals get stopped before the decent blacks and whites forget that we are supposed to all be Americans. However, I will not continue to keep an open mind if my Americans continue to act like gutter trash scumbags .

 

Even when the right tries to explain racism, they end up being racist. They are all in agreement that there are black criminals and bad cops. Funny thing, a cop who commits a crime, is indicted, found guilty and is serving time, well, they are a bad apple. I knew a few bad apples from the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The mentality on the right though is confusing. Many of the white conservatives are fully supportive of what the cops did in New York, Missouri, Illinois, California, Arizona and other states where white officers/deputies shot and killed an unarmed black person, yet the same people who are supportive of law enforcement, are against any tax increase that would pay law enforcement officers. They are also anti-union and are anti-law enforcement when they were ordered to remove Cliven Bundy’s cattle on public land. This is proof that conservatives only love law enforcement when black and brown folks are killed by them.

Like my previous story: Conservatives Have A Double Standard When It Comes To Use Of Police Force On Blacks, conservatives scream of injustice when law enforcement kill their own. Waco Texas and Ruby Ridge Idaho were two of the same. Obviously, the federal government was over-reaching and the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Government Information held a total of 14 days of hearings between September 6 and October 19, 1995, and subsequently issued a report calling for reforms in federal law enforcement to prevent a repeat of Ruby Ridge and to restore public confidence in federal law enforcement…yet nothing on the repeated abuse of law enforcement against black and Hispanic folks by law enforcement or even how a grand jury finds shooting or choking to death unarmed black men are justified.

Conservative Tribune just doesn’t get it and their mentality shows in their meme. Black criminals? The members’ justification of black and Hispanic criminals being a problem and the cops should do something is based upon the percentage of blacks and Hispanics in prison nationwide…which does not reflect the population of the U.S. According to the census, Population, 2013 estimate there are 316,128,839 people in the U.S. Whites make 77.7%, Blacks or African Americans make up 13.2% and Hispanics or Latinos make up 17.1% of the U.S. population, yet Blacks and Hispanics combined make up more than 90 percent of the imprisoned population, why? Because of different factors. Factors like money for attorney, basic knowledge of the law, holding someone 72 hours or released on their own recognizance and law enforcement. According to the Drug Policy Alliance:

Since the 1980s, federal penalties for crack were 100 times harsher than those for powder cocaine, with African Americans disproportionately sentenced to much lengthier terms. But, in 2010, DPA played a key role in reducing the crack/powder sentencing disparity from 100:1 to 18:1, and we are committed to passing legislation that would eliminate the disparity entirely.

Crack is cheaper than powder cocaine and many users tend to buy the cheaper-priced substance. Therefore, with punishment harsher for blacks and Hispanics, there is a larger population of blacks and Hispanics than whites in prison. So for Moses ***** to write his statement:

Moses ***** I agree with the first and third statements. The 2nd is harder to accept because blacks make up the majority of the prison population and the 3 whitest states: Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire also have the lowest crime rates. This is not racist but facts that don’t lie.

Is wrong…even when the truth is right in front of them. Yet even with all the facts, the right still won’t accept the fact that the war on drugs by former President Ronald Reagan directly affected people of color as seen on PBS called Guns, Drug and the CIA and Reagan himself apologizing that his men and women were involved in illegal covert operations: Part 1 and Part 2. This policy eventually led to what is happening today, and the conservatives still see blacks and Hispanics as thugs or illegals.

Yet with the protests going on around the U.S. and even in the cold, there is a rainbow of ethnicity standing up to racists and maybe, this may be the beginning of a new civil rights movement.

  1. I’m sure you’ll call me racist, but the biggest drug in the black community has been social welfare which is the biggest reason for marginalizing black men. It’s rampant in the white community as well, but since the black community is a minority, it disproportionately has a bigger effect there. If government becomes the daddy for broken families, woman and children become wards of the state and grown men have no use. Idleness and crime soon follow for the displaced men. Your Great Society is inherently racist!! Don’t blame it on the good citizens of this land.

  2. You should know that there are many black people that would say the same thing. The words may be slightly different but I recall Louis Farrakhan saying things that are very much similar.

    Job opportunities are a different story, but I know many black families that are intact and their children are very much a success.

    Go ahead and perpetuate your nonsense.

  3. I would say that the “real” racists include those that continuously make statements such as the title of this article.

    I grew up in NYC and never, ever, had these thoughts. I grew up in an Italian neighborhood in the Bronx and went to high school near lower Manhattan. In elementary and junior high school we had mostly “white” Italians. However, once in high school I met girls of different races and religions from all five boroughs. I/we never gave race a thought because as far I/we were concerned we were all in school for the same reason: Education. There was our focus – and we bonded!

    We all worked together with wonderful leadership (principal and teachers) at the helm. Our school motto was Intelligence, Integrity, Industry!

    BTW, I’m a public school “kid” except for seminary much later in life.

    It’s about time that conservatives(??) start seeing each as an individual and stop homogenizing everyone wrongly by their own standards and prejudices.

    We are all children of God -…

  4. I attended a mostly black high school in the city of Detroit the same year as the riots. This was 2-3 years before bussing laws took effect in Detroit. You would not believe what a very few bad apples put us thru. They were members of more than one racist hate group. It was bad there for the 3 of us Caucasians that were in my class year of 71, that we hardly ever spent the entire day in school. In fact in my senior year I skipped all but 15 school days. Yet I still graduated on time with a B+ grade point. That is how low the expectations in that school were in those day’s. If any one would have a right to be prejudice, I certainly would but am not for I realized that the majority of them ignored me and left me alone. It was the few that hated us so. I say all this to make a point there are bad in all groups sadly they get all the attention. That education levels and expectations in minority community’s is a big reason why so many do poorly in life, along with a lack of parent direct…

  5. Slavery, Jim Crow, housing discrimination, employment discrimination “aside” and those are big asides –

    When a white kid gets busted for drugs, speeding petty theft and vandalism they get a slap on the wrist.

    When a black kid gets busted for the very same things, he gets four years in prison.

    That is the crux of the issue.

    Blacks are treated differently than whites, so don’t tell me or them they should respect the law, when the law doesn’t respect them and often destroys them.

  6. Just because there are “bad apples” doesn’t make the systematic unfairness against blacks in our justice system non-existant.

    The black “good apples” are more likely to be arrested and convicted than white good apples.

    Some keep pounding on this, and that is the point – good African Americans – the GOOD ones, in how some describe them – they STILL get harrassed, arrested and convicted at much higher rates than white people for the same offenses.

  7. Myth: People on welfare are usually black, teenage mothers who stay on ten years at a time.

    Fact: Most welfare recipients are non-black, adult and on welfare less than two years at a time.

    Summary

    According to the statistics, whites form the largest racial group on welfare; half of all welfare recipients leave in the first two years; and teenagers form less than 8 percent of all welfare mothers.

    Argument

    Here are the statistics on welfare recipients:

    Traits of families on AFDC (1)

    Race
    ————–
    White 38.8%
    Black 37.2
    Hispanic 17.8
    Asian 2.8
    Other 3.4

    Obviously, there are more whites than blacks on welfare, because whites are the larger population. With incarceration, see it drop more as convicted felons are not allowed to receive welfare: The federal 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act

    NIDA Study Suggests Crystal Methamphetamine Use in Young Adults Higher than Previously Reported

    I guess Crystal meth doesn’t count?

  9. Oh, I’m a racist? Really? Where did I use racism to report this story? Is it because I used conservative? The Facebook quotes are from white folks and they chose to write what they did. How am I a racist for pointing that out?

    As a Christian, and I’m an atheist, instead of pounding on people who expose the hate from people who claim to be a God-Fearing-Christian, but call blacks N*****s, call blacks criminals and white people racist, maybe it’s time to tell your fellow flock of their mental inequity? So some blacks are criminals…not whites?

    Then you have: Moses ***** I agree with the first and third statements. The 2nd is harder to accept because blacks make up the majority of the prison population and the 3 whitest states: Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire also have the lowest crime rates. This is not racist but facts that don’t lie.

    Read my stats again from above and tell me why it’s racism that I point out inequity? Isn’t that your job as a Christian to spread God’s word?

  10. @Tim from LA… yes, I acknowledged that the problem is “rampant in the white community” as well.

    The point being that any one stuck in the entitlement state trap is actually stuck in a modern day form of slavery. People that aren’t in that state, but up to there eyebrows in debt are slaves to corporate banking interests.

    I don’t have the answer… but I am interested in seeing as many people as possible being raised up to be able to provide a lifestyle for themselves and their families that nurtures self-esteem and positive family structures.

    What we should be doing then, is promoting a lifestyle that breaks free of this bondage. Now perpetuating those lifestyles.

  11. mr reed the only nonsense being perpetrated here is yours. you claim to know many black families, but your statements show that you really don’t. you decry “wards of the state” but does that only apply to those who get welfare or food stamps? did it ever occur to you that many people receiving the gov’t assistance you decry are working full time? that in a family where both parents work full time jobs at low wages, much of the increased income is eaten up by child care costs? these are people doing everything you say they should, yet they still need help. do you count among those wards those who through no fault of their own are too injured to work? or who are getting social security retirement benefits? probably not because that wouldn’t fit the narrative. btw, I am in a mixed race family, and we call ppl like you “i’m not a racist” racists. if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

  12. @jeffery… Ah, I knew there would be someone to flat out call me a racist. Thank-you. But this is an attitude construed through your sheer ignorance. If you deny that there aren’t certain modern cultural influences designed “to keep people in their place”, then you are in vast denial. And I’m talking about influences that “popular” with these people. I don’t deny that there is a much higher percentage of the black male community that is incarcerated than any other. Quite frankly, I don’t place the direct blame on them either, I do blame certain accepted cultural influences that contribute to the societal problems of the culture.

  13. @djchefron… Ok, I’ll lay it out there… popular culture from Hollywood and the music industry that promotes drugs & sexual promiscuity and any other kind of anti-social behavior…. and the politicians who defend these things.

    I don’t deny anyone’s right to produce such materials, but I do fault those who choose to make those influences their religion. AND PLEASE EVERYBODY, I’M NOT SINGLING OUT THE BLACK COMMUNITY HERE. It’s anyone, who can’t elevate their lifestyles past the most base elements of our human natures.

    We have to maintain a certain level of civil accountability and decency to make a workable society. If that is not important to someone reading this… have at it with your anarchy.

    One might say that we all need to look to God for guidance, humility, compassion and forgiveness… I’m not a devout Christian, but I certainly believe we need to re-embrace some of these values.

    We have to be able to embrace some greater good than just our own des…

  14. You think that people just started f#cking and getting high because of Hollywood? Didn’t I ask you yesterday stop your nonsense?

  15. No Robert Reed I’m not going to label you a racist..Idiot maybe..perhaps clueless and un-informed possibly. And not racist but certainly a pawn for the Fox News crowd.

  16. The percentage of black people who commit murder is more than 4 times the percentage of white people who commit murder. The percentage of black people who murder whites is more than 8 times the percentage of white people who murder blacks. Other violent crimes follow similar patterns. Isn’t it possible that people are prone to seeing the black man holding the knife because more often that’s what actually happens in real life? Until this behavior by blacks changes you will have a hard time convincing whites that they are the problem.

  17. “White Conservatives Justify Their Racism By Claiming Black Criminals Are Racists”

    You failed to prove this. In my view its an incorrect assumption, nothing more. Your article in fact is filled with similar myopic claims.

    “Even when the right tries to explain racism, they end up being racist.”

    Only when viewed through the progressive left where everyone racists except themselves. This opinion of your is flat out wrong. It seems to reflect a profound misinterpretation of conservative principles.

    “This is proof that conservatives only love law enforcement when black and brown folks are killed by them.”

    You really reveal your own bias. How sad.
