Obama's Reverend Wright begins Race-Baiting

From the New York Times, April 28 2008:

http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/04/28/rev-wright-defends-church-blasts-media/
"Asked why he chose to speak out now, Mr. Wright said: “On November the 5th and on January 21st, I’ll still be a pastor. As I’ve said, this is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright. It has nothing to do with Senator Obama. This is an attack on the black church launched by people who know nothing about the African- American religious tradition.”
Is Wright telling us, that it's the "African-American religious tradition" to spread and bolster the dangerous lie that the US Government created the AIDS virus to kill blacks? To spread the dangerous lie that "Israel is responsible for 9/11"?

If so, that's a "tradition" that should be stopped in its tracks. Some 30% of American blacks believe the nonsense about AIDS being government-created. It's largely due to people like Wright - prominent blacks in the public eye, spreading this falsehood.. why? I can't say why. But Wright, Spike Lee, and many other prominent blacks are pushing this myth.

It's dangerous, because people who believe this evil idea will act on it. It's yet more self-destructive, victim mentality thinking by a black sub-culture that desperately needs to stand on its own two feet and stop blaming others for its ills: such as the high crime and murder rate between and among young black males, unwed teen mothers, and drug abuse. People who believe that the government is actively murdering them, are likely to feel there is no point in trying to change their destructive lifestyle.

And no matter how much Wright race-baits, no matter how much he wants to turn this into some white vs. black issue, it's not. Ignorance and lies are not the province of races. They are traits of individuals - individuals such as Wright. It is people like Wright who are at this point responsible for helping keep a significant percentage of blacks oppressed, by continuing to play his game of race-baiting.

Murder in the US

In 2011, I calculate the overall US murder rate as 4.6 per 100,000 population.

But if you recalculate this, and assumed that black men murdered at the same rate as everyone else, the overall rate would drop to 1.9 out of 100,000 population. That would give the United States the 147th highest murder rate in the world - or, the 60th best.

The insane disproportionate murder rate among US blacks is why the overall US murder rate seems so high.

I don't understand why liberals refuse to talk about this. I don't understand why blacks refuse to talk about this. Blacks are just as often the victim as the offender - almost SIXTY PERCENT of murder victims in the US are black. Shouldn't they care about this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to talk about this? Yet they are silent.

And it's not like this is any secret. This culture of violence, abuse of women, and plain thuggery is paraded around daily in pop music. It's glorified on TV shows like "The Wire…

Moveon.org Lies

I know what you're thinking. You're saying to yourself, "Of course Moveon.org lies, Publius, everyone knows tihs."

Well, this is a particularly vicious lie. In a recent email sent out to Moveon.org members, Moveon.org elites including "Noah" had this to say about plans by the US Chamber of Commerce to oppose further acceleration of government intervention in the economy:
The right-wing lobbyists at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will spend $100 million to defeat Obama's plans for health care and a clean energy economy. They call it their "most important project" in nearly 100 years.1

Your local Chamber of Commerce represents small businesses, but the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is different—it represents the interests of mega-corporations, especially Big Oil and Coal.
-- "Biggest corporate attack on Obama yet", Sat Jun 13 2009So Moveon.org is trying to paint the US Chamber of Commerce as a "right-wing arm of Big Oil and Coal". An o…

The one thing that could help.

Megan, you overlooked one obvious thing that could help. 

More regular, sane, well-adjusted people who are well trained in the use of firearms should be allowed to carry them concealed, in public.

The reason the shooters pick malls, schools, restaurants and the like is that they know noone in any of these places will offer them any resistance. Because we have in our "wisdom" banned guns from these places - even by non-crazies. So when crazy shows up to a school there is *no way to stop it*.

The meme is "Noone has ever committed a mass murder at a gun show." But it's truth. These shooters are, fundamentally, cowards. They want easy victims, and as you say, a sense of power. So they're going to go to places where we have banned guns and know they will get to exercise that power without resistance. Places that might resist won't give them the sense of power.

The obvious solution you overlook, is to encourage, educate, and allow more people to defend themselves…
