Diversity is not a strength, America proves that!
The left in America and now all those race hustlers too, are trying their best to shove this fable down the throats of our country's people. In my view, we should all work for a similar goal. Making the country ONE. Not many. But the "Balkanization" caused by interest groups is keeping America split up and at each other's throats. Yes, we all know and most of us are saddened that we had slavery of others in our past. We also had indentured servitude. And over time we did away with both. But you would think slavery is still going on according to those race hustlers like Tyson and others. The media gives these charlatans exposure to preaching their hateful divisive words and then the mainstream media calls those critics of these race hustlers, "bigots" for speaking up against them.
We see the narrative all the time. The NFL "kneelers" are the latest nationally. And when people said wait a minute you guys, you are disrespecting the flag, the National Anthem and the troops, they decided to change their focus to other things. They got spanked as did their owners. Listening to Greg Popovich, coach os the San Antonio Spurs NBA team, a white man, spew his "white man's guilt" the other day almost made me puke. American fans pay him and hs players millions and yet he whined about "white privilege". What is it about these white people making that bogus attack? I don't understand how a colorblind set of laws has become construed as some sort of "privilege".
In my opinion, Americans of all colors should stop the race baiting and start getting along. And to do that, people have to stop the finger pointing and whining. Let's start making hay of our similarities rather than our differences. Change the rhetoric to stop blaming others for your problems. Accept personal responsibility. America has morphed into the greatest place on the planet for fairness and enforcement of the LAW! All Americans benefit. But of course, race hustlers and gender hustlers keep the division going. We should celebrate our luck of the draw to be born here and not in Albania or Zimbabwe. But no, there is money to be made by the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons and the George Soros types.
Education in America has been dumbed down to the lowest common denominator which then shows up in these debates about America. The kids don't get the history or even the context of our country and it evolution. Though the Constitution was created with some flaws, it had provisions to fix them. And in the Civil War, a half million Americans died to fix the last great sore of slavery. Yet 150 years later we see these old wounds constantly reopened to allow people to claim America is somehow a bad place. I beg to differ. If people think they cannot live here under such a terrible set of laws and rules then try other places. We Americans have that freedom to leave.
Locally in our little town, we saw some of the antics of fools this last week. A young man who is black was harassed by some white men in a car on Mill Street. He and his father and mother were rightly outraged. So am I. But to me, it is the action of some crumbums and not the community as a whole. This county is 95% white and many marched in support of the family and against the antics of the fools. To me we need to isolate the bigots and racists and kick their asses out. There is no place for that behavior here or anywhere. But it will happen when people have those prejudices.
I recall a trip to the State Fair back in my high school days. I traveled there with my friend Hal. We were walking around the grounds at the Fair and suddenly we were surrounded by a bunch of young black males. They were taunting us and calling us all kinds of denigrating names. They took a stance that we took as readying themselves to pummel us. Thankfully a Fair cop came up and he disbursed them. We dodged a bullet. But it remains with me what can happen when people have those "diverse" views of others. They can be one of coming together in "sameness" or they can be a mob looking for trouble. America needs to stop calling each other by group names. Sure we can personally feel good about be a certain race or ethnicity or gender or whatever subgroup you want. But in the end, for America, our strength is we are Americans first.
