Unfortunately, you won’t see this sign anywhere in Newnan, Georgia
I’ve got to rant a bit today because of the blatant ignorance of these morons that think every time a white person voices an opinion or criticism about black criminals it somehow makes them a racist.
I occasionally leave comments to my local paper, The Newnan Times Herald, (which by the way is a great paper and has some fine journalists on it’s staff), about things that happen in my own community or news in general.
Recently there have been some cases that spark a response from me. One was a young man that I believed got a bad jury conviction for rape. The others have been poking fun at the stupidity of drug dealers and criminals caught by our local law enforcement officers.
I caught hell for my comments about the young white rapist but every time I post a comment on a crime committed by a black person the ignorant jerks pile on with the hater and the racist name calling.
It only takes a quick look at trying read their comments or looking at their Facebook profiles to understand just how ignorant they truly are.
I’m not a racist or even a bigot. I am however prejudiced when it comes to my surroundings and things I hear in the news. Every human being is. Every where you go you judge your surroundings and people approaching on the sidewalks and in parking lots. Has nothing to do with race. But when the number one killer of young black males in America are committed by other young black males theres a problem. It’s not even about race, It’s about a culture of people brought up to be criminals or denied the opportunities to escape the very culture that corrupts them. It’s a serious problem that people keep avoiding. You can blame rap music for it’s degrading of women and it’s thug gang references as one of the contributors. There are so many factors and so very few people willing to do anything meaningful about it.
I’ve written about the culture of violence several times, but because I happen to be a white male, that makes me a racist in some peoples minds. It’s that same ignorant mentality that when they don’t like how a white person voices a concern over crime, and it happens to involve a black person, they are immediately labeled a racist. Rarely does the racist label hold any truth. These people couldn’t give you the correct definition of racism, bigotry, or prejudice if their lives depended on it. Fact is, the word has been improperly used so often that it really means nothing anymore. I laugh at people that use the word. They cannot tell you the difference between the three.
We can point our fingers at the people who continually fan the flames of racial tension like the race whores Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright and yes, even Barack Obama. All of these men are guilty of helping to create racial devise in America. Barack Obama invites Al Sharpton into our White House to get advice on racial issues! Just tell me what exactly makes that ok?
I won’t spend any more time here on something you already know is going on today. I just wanted to vent about this racist name calling that just keeps popping up every time a black person tries to justify, excuse, and defends a culture of violence in our communities when someone like me voices an opinion.
It should be noted that some of these fools have their employers names listed on their comments from their Facebook pages. Not very smart. If I’m an employer and see these comments you might be finding a pink slip in your future. Same goes for any future employment opportunities. Employers look at social media to see just what kind of employees they have or if they are willing to hire that person.
Here’s a sample of some of the comments I left and the reactions I received about two brothers, Dontavious and Tabious who were arrested for eluding police and other crimes in Newnan, and the suspected gang members arrested after being stopped for a turn signal violation. By the way, “police officers found a plastic bag containing 69 capsules of suspected cocaine and MDMA, or “Molly,” along with some marijuana. Officers also received permission to search the vehicle from White, and inside, they found a loaded 9mm handgun and a loaded 38 special revolver in the glove box, an additional 9mm clip next to the driver’s seat and another plastic bag in the center console containing 12 capsules of Molly and about 10 grams of loose Molly.”
