My Prediction

As you all know, people have been pointing fingers left and right during the hurricane Katrina aftermath. And a lot of fingers have been pointed at racism. Although they're are pointing at something that's not there, I have a prediction that instead of putting their fingers down, they will bring back affirmative action. And to a higher level too.

Now I will explain it. The hurricane hits a place where the majority of residents are poor black people. Things elevate when Liberals call Bush racist. The government will start out by giving the hurricane victims extra care. Which is fine, but it will get worse. Then, the Liberals will start saying that all black people are victims. They will demand the government to treat the black community "special", and pretty soon it will be the return of affirmative action.

First I must point out the hypocrisy of this idea. You call white people racist, then you only help black people. It's as simple as that. If you want to help the hurricane victims, that's fine. But help just the hurricane victims. Not only do I disagree with affirmative action in the first place, but now you're doing it for the wrong reasons.

Now I'll tell you why I disagree with affirmative action.

1) people need to learn how to get of their but and go to work every day. If your parents both live off from welfare and foodstamps, then chances are, the kid won't try to get a job either. And over the generations there will be less and less people working. You should not be depending on the government to give you support. Everybody else works, why don't you give it a try.

2) Like I said, it's racist. I know very few people can see this view, but it really is possible to be racist against an average white person. And in my opinion, it's just as bad. I hate how people don't notice this. Take a black comedian for example. All they talk about is race. And you know this is true. Those are almost the only jokes they'll make. Now a white comedian says a race joke and he gets thrown into jail. I have a word for this, hypocrisy.

3) Don't forget where government spending comes from. Oh yeah, the taxpayer. I find that it would be hard for me to hand out cash to people just because they're black, or just because they're Hispanic, or whatever.

4) It's predjudice. And I'm actually surprised how many people think this is a synonym for racist. Actually it means "pre-judging". What that means for affirmative action is that you are going to give that money to the black person even if he doesn't need it.

So that's my prediction. I'm hoping to God it's wrong, but I know it's going to be brought up in the next few months.

    That is a really stupid prediction. Sorry, but even as a liberal, I am not going to call the president racist, and I haven't heard that accusation yet. What I HAVE heard, and agree with, is the fact that if this hurricane would have hit a wealthy white community, the people would have been tended to much quicker. Can you imagine rich, snobby, white people wading through disease-infested waters and dying on the side of the road? I can't. I think that part of the reason for that is that poor people can't really do a damn thing if their needs aren't met. They will return to less than they already had, which was pretty much nothing. They will go on with their lives and although some concern will be raised about this issue, there will be no changes. One thing that comes with being poor and uneducated is the inability to carry out the type of situation you have described.

    Also, do you know anyone living on welfare? And if the answer to that is yes, do those people ENJOY being unemployed and unable to provide for themselves and their families? There are students in my grade, that I am friends with, whose families are on welfare. Are they embarrassed? Do they wish they had better? Of course they do. Certainly there are exceptions. But do you want to go to college? Do you want to exceed the expectations that other members of your family have of you? Just because someone is poor does not mean they are happy with it, nor does it mean that they have no dreams or aspirations when it comes to living a better life. For a lot of people, work is hard to comes by. Unless you are one of them or know someone who is, it would be a lot less insulting if you would stop assuming that affirmative action exists because everyone on welfare is lazy and black.

    Think what you want but I know the Ted Kennedies and Michael Moorons of the world will bring it up soon.

    My Uncle is on welfare. And trust me, he takes full advantage of it. He sleeps like 36 hours a day, watches some T.V. and goes back to bed. He loves not working and getting paid for it. Not to mention he is able-bodied and could work if he wanted to.
    And their kids haven't been taught barley anything by their parents, which means their 10 year old still acts like a 7 year old. Sure he would like to do better than his parents, but he wouldn't know how.

    To no one's surprise, I agree with Cody. Down to the letter! You go, Cody. It's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Your uncle is a prime example. Four of my daughters acquaintences have come up pregnant and unwed. Ages, 15, 16, 16 & 17. To give them credit, they kept their babies. All of them are white. Pregnant women, at least in the first few months can work. They are all living at home and have mother's at home not working and taking every government handout they can get. Three of them also have fathers, not working and taking every government handout they can get. Only one of them has a valid excuse, a father dying of cancer, a brother with down's syndrome and a mother with her hands very full. All of them ran out and grabbed at food stamps, the Wick program and everything else they could get their hands on. I understand the last one, although she could have gotten a job during the first few months to set something aside, but that of course, was never thought of. They are all going to school, but that's no excuse either. My daughter is a senior. She goes to school and works a 40 hour week because she wants to put money in her savings account and not be dependent on mommy and daddy for the rest of her life or on a man to take care of her. She's been taught the work ethic. Neither is she pregnant because she does not have the time to run around doing what causes babies. Also, she was raised with Christian values. So it's not just the Afro-Americans taking advantage of this system, is it? I wonder why all the liberals think white rich people are snobby? Sounds like jealousy to me. How angry they are at people who have worked hard to get where they are. If it weren't for people who are successful in this country because they have a work ethic, where would all these Government hand outs come from? Cody, trying to reason with liberals is only going to give you a headache. I have one already. Take care.

    Do you know any rich white people, Gayle? Because I know an awful lot and none of them have an ttitude or personality to be proud of.

    Pretty much all I'm going to say is:

    If you were born black in, say, urban Detroit... into a circle of poverty... you would have a very different worldview than you do now. It's easy to pass judgement and offer hollow solutions but you've never walked in those shoes.

    Okay, there is two was of ending poverty, our way and yours.

    With yours, more and more people depend on the Government. Over the generations, less people are working and getting out of poverty

    With our way, people will have to work hard to get where they wan't. It's not the easy path, but it's the one that will eventually end poverty.

    And you have of course. Judging from your pic I'd say you're white.
