Attention Obama-Lovers: The Truth is Not Racist !
It's bad enough when you have leftist-media idiots trying to find racist ''code'' in Republican candidates speeches. Like referring to ''Chicago'' is anti-black because Obama was a community organizer there, or ''apartments'' because most blacks live in apartments, or even ''inner city'' for the blacks in those neighborhoods. God-forbid Romney or Ryan come up with referring to apartments in Chicago's inner city.....the media will have a field day!
Now, I hear of a Australian douchebag living and blogging in New York City telling Australian readers she's also just heard racist speak in the U.S.A. This new-wave professional feminist, Chole S. (for Stupid) Angyal writes:
The United States is possibly about to grant its first black president a second term in office. And yet, in the nearly four years since he was elected, coded racism has become a part of the natural conversation like never before.
Romney stood up in front of a television audience of 60 million people and said that gun violence in America happens because poor black single women are bad mothers.
What Mitt Romney actually said about gun violence and families is this:
But let me mention another thing. And that is parents. We need moms and dads, helping to raise kids. There are a lot of great single moms and single dads. But to tell our kids that before they have babies, they ought to think about getting married to someone. It's a great idea, because if there's a two parent family, the prospect of living on poverty goes down dramatically. The opportunities that the child will be able to achieve increases dramatically. So we can make changes in the way our culture works to help bring people away from violence, giving them opportunities and bringing them in the American system.
Romney said nothing like what this smart-ass twit claims. Moreover, if he is a racist then so is Barack Obama, who seconds after Romney spoke, added:
I think that's one area we agree on is the importance of parents and the importance of schools, because I do believe that if our young people have opportunity, then they are less likely to engage in these kinds of violent acts.
Susan Olden is astonished it is now racist to speak the truth about the link between the disintegration of families and crime. She points out just a few of many studies:
When children born to a single mother, they tend to show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Source: Osbourne, C. & McLanahan, S. (2007) Journal of Marriage and Family, 69, 1065-1083
Adolescents, particularly boys, in single-parent families were a higher risk of committing crimes against property and people. Source: Anderson, Amy, Journal of Criminal Justice (11/2002)
It is Angyal who imposes on Romney's identification of a real social problem - and social tragedy - a racial spin, knowing statistics reveal the breakdown in families has been particularly devastating in the African-American community. Almost 70% of black children are born to single mothers and more likely to be poor and pass that poverty on to their children.
So I guess Bill Clinton must be a racist, too:
In his 1994 State of the Union Address, he announced: ''We cannot renew our country when, within a decade, more than half our children will be born into families where there is no marriage.''
The great (black) comedian Bill Cosby must be a racist, too:
No longer is a person embarrassed because they're pregnant without a husband. No longer is a boy considered an embarrassment if he tries to run away from being the father of the unmarried child. The lower middle class are not holding up their end in this deal. These people cry when their son goes to prison. I ask them...where were you when he was two? Where were you when he was twelve? Where were you when he was eighteen and how come you didn't know he had a pistol? And where was his father and why didn't he show up to talk to his son?
The Way I See It....the only person who seems keen to peddle negative stereotypes seems Ms Chole S. Angyal herself, damning Romney as one of the fabled racists of the Right for saying what Obama, Clinton, Crosby and the many research papers with their facts all support. She has drunk from the trough of biased swill of the American leftist media and has lost her Australian breeding of giving a Bloke-a-Fair-Go, but then again, blokes according to her feminist moral radar are mainly mysogynist anyway.
Of course, Barack Obama has never been too far away from playing the Race Card. A liberal group, sanctioned by the govrnment, called ''The Message'' made a YouTube video saying that Romney is so white he makes ''Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.'' The president often aids and abets the divisiveness, even setting up a national campaign organization, ''African-Americans for Obama." This attitude of his and the media supporting him is divisive and does nothing in uniting the country to deal with the current economic crisis.
