The Ugly Truth


Totes Not Safe For Work!

I posted this in the comments last night but it’s a slow news day so I promoted it to the front page:

On his Friday podcast, comedian and top-rated Carolla Digital podcaster Adam Carolla delivered a stern rebuke to all the “hypocritical pussies” out there, in reaction to a March 5 story from Huffington Post-San Francisco’s Robin Wilkey that portrayed his exchange earlier this month with Democratic California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom as racist.

“The Huffington Post has come out with a story that says ‘Adam Carolla to Gavin Newsom: ‘What’s wrong with blacks and Latinos?’’” Carolla said. “That’s not what I said to Gavin Newsom. I didn’t bring up blacks and Latinos. He brought up blacks and Latinos. But let me take this moment to now talk to all the pussies that are out there trying to stir things up and turn me into a racist. I got news for you: Me saying parents should stick around and raise the children – me saying families and cultures should focus on education — is not radical or revolutionary. It’s the fucking truth.”

Carolla, author of “Not Taco Bell Material,” said that while Newsom is quick to blame “the system,” Newsom happens to be a part of what’s wrong that system.

“You are the system, Gavin Newsom,” Carolla said. “Fix the system, but you won’t fix the system, because you know what it takes to fix the system and you’re a fucking coward. And guys like Huffington Post — you guys fucking line up behind these people and let me tell you something, you guys all have blood on your hands, because the problem could be fixed. It’s a problem, and it’s a problem that involves bodies. People die every year.”

“There’s people getting shot,” Carolla added. “There’s brown people shooting other brown people on the streets of Chicago every fucking day of the week. And you guys sit there silently. If it was a Sandy Hook situation or anything else, you’d be all up in arms. But you can’t say a word, so you sit there with your fucking coward hands over your fucking little cowardly soup coolers. And then when somebody has the guts to say something — to speak the truth for fucking one hot second, you jump up his ass and call him a racist. Thus, you silence the media. Now you perpetuate the problem.”


Yes, I realize that Adam Corolla is a sexist pig who uses really foul language. But he is right.

There is a sickness in the soul of black culture. It is NOT genetic. It is not a problem common to all black Americans. It is a chronic and deadly disease that is epidemic in the black American subculture.

Yes, I know about the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow segregation. Those are horrible blights upon our national history. But we have black children being born today whose grandparents were born after the end of the Civil Rights struggle. Nor is this disease confined to black culture in the formerly slave-owning and segregated South. This “social” disease infects black culture in the deep South, in the industrial North and way out West in California.

It is a cultural cancer that denigrates traditional values like education, hard work and monogamy while glorifying drugs, violence and irresponsible sexual behavior.

wmcb:

A lot of what has happened to the black community is indeed the fault of white people, but not in the way the pols think.

In the normal course of life, every group gets feedback from society around them. This is a good thing. If the Mormons are marrying multiple 12-year-olds, eventually the greater society says, HEY, STOP THAT FREAKY SHIT. And so they did. Societal feedback works.

What white liberal society did, in their guilt over our admitted past sins, was to cut the black community off completely from the normal, necessary feedback loop that any subgroup in a greater society needs. It was short-circuited entirely. No one wants to say STOP THAT SHIT. Instead, we are told that gang symbols, thuggery, violent attitudes toward women, and fathering children willy nilly is their “culture”, and “keepin’ it real” so we must tread carefully. Bullshit.

What we are seeing is the result, after a few generations, of a societal sub-group being deliberately and systemically isolated from the the natural feedback of approval/disapproval, this works/that doesn’t work, that all the rest of us learn and prosper and succeed by.

That’s not “sensitivity”, that’s fucking cruel, infantilizing, and destructive.


The worst part is that many leaders of the black community have grown fat by helping to keep their own people in virtual chains.

One thing is certain – what we have been doing for the past 50 years ain’t working. America is supposed to be a land of opportunity. Other groups from all over the world endure hardship to come here and once they arrive they start following the same path as generations of immigrants before them. But the black community remains mired in chronic poverty, illiteracy, crime and single-parenthood.

And anyone who tries to talk bluntly and honestly about what is wrong and what needs to be done about it gets labeled a racist and is marginalized. Even if they are black.

Exit question: What has Touré Neblett ever done to improve the lives of any black person not named Neblett?

    The height of hypocrisy is Vile Progs accusing red states of gerrymandering to reduce the number of blacks in Congress when the Voting Rights Act MANDATES “majority-minority” districts. Every single one of them is a Democratic “safe” seat and is the primary reason the CBC has so many senior members.

    (JJJr. occupied one of those seats but it wasn’t created because of the VRA)

  2. HELENK says:

    toure, jackson, sharpton all make a good living promoting racism. that is not going to stop until the black community wises up.
    telling someone that it is never their fault and they never have to be accountable is not a help it is a hinderance. Calling some one that make the effort to better themselves “uncle tom” hurts everyone.
    having someone in office that thinks the “gmme, you owe me does not help either.

    Fact of the matter is, we’re not telling the truth on lots of issues but the sidestepping on racial and ethnic issues is deplorable. And it’s true, you can hardly open your mouth against the leftist, race baiters.
    Except for some blog conversations like this one, there is no national debate. Hate to say it but one gets the feeling that that is exactly what this administration wants….chaos, conflict, division….play everyone against each other…and make yourself look like the good guy….sad, very sad…

  5. Well said! Amen and honkety honk honk HONK!

  6. Just shared this to FB and borrowed part of the WMCB quote above.
    It is all BS- and we are in danger of creating ANOTHER out of touch, isolated sub group- radical islamists coming here not to BE American- but to CHANGE America. To continue to live in their 6th century attitudes and trying to force THEIR religious laws into OUR civil code.
    NOT GOOD!

    And, to be fair, so have a lot of major corporations – from payday lenders, mortgage scammers, and appliance/tv rental companies to the entertainment conglomerates that glorify violence and crime. There’s a lot of money to be made from exploiting the poor of every ethnicity.

    • angienc (D) says:

      True but those guys (mortgage scammers, etc) — unlike the black “leaders” aren’t trying to pretend they are looking out for the black community’s best interests.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I know in military towns, they make certain businesses “off-limits” if they’re scamming the young troops, it’s usually the kiss of death to that biz. Too bad the inner city leaders don’t take a stand like that for their most vunerable populations of any color, mostly low income working poor.

  10. tommy says:

    Tread carefully on this issue. Just sayin’. Its taboo, just like how talking about sex was when I was young. People would jump to the charge of racism, and trying to shut you up. As a non-caucasian, I wholeheartedly agree with you.

    • myiq2xu says:

      They’ve been calling me a racist for five years now.

      • HELENK says:

        I wear it as a badge of honor.
        in today’s world being racist means you have a brain and know how to use it.

        trying to come up with a tag for my nom-de-blog, similar to (D), to say,”Yeah, I know because I disagree with you I’m a Racist”. Maybe /r/ would do it.

    WTF?

    Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who lost out in a bruising bid for the job of secretary of state, may have the last laugh.

    Rice has emerged as far and away the front-runner to succeed Thomas E. Donilon as President Obama’s national security adviser later this year, according to an administration official familiar with the president’s thinking.

    SHE WAS NEVER OFFERED THE JOB! JOHN KERRY WAS OBAMA’S FIRST CHOICE!

    It’s a good rant, sexist pig or not 🙂

    “There is a sickness in the soul of black culture…..It is a chronic and deadly disease that is epidemic in the black American subculture…”

    Yes, but let us not ignore some of the people who share responsibility for creating that disease, specifically Dems, do-gooders, and the left. Jim Crow was replaced with ghetto mentality, with forced poverty, with a culture of victimization. The black community has been subjected to a relentless campaign of psychological warfare. Many black community leaders, congresscritters, have become officers, overseers, in that war, enforcing the status quo.

    I’d have to write a whole book to explain it properly, but every empty accusation of racism, reinforces this idea that we live in a racist culture that hates blacks. Many black children don’t grow up believing they can achieving anything they want, they grow up believing they are hated, feared, oppressed. We create what we focus our energy on. For decades we have focused on crime, poverty, victimization, oppression, until we have created a self fulfilling prophecy. Now that the mission has been accomplished, we romanticize ghetto culture to really lock it all down.

    Did anyone watch the Ben Carson story? He’s not a great student, believes he’s dumb, doesn’t put in any effort. His mother, through sheer willpower, somehow manages to make him study, read. Eventually he wins an academic award, but when he goes to get it his 8th grade teacher calls him a poor negro, disadvantaged, victim of a fatherless home. Until that moment he never viewed himself that way. He was just going about his business, learning that if you put in the effort, you’ll reap the reward. Suddenly his perception of himself and his abilities is poisoned with all these stereotypes. His mother is so mad, she moves and puts him in a new school.

    We do that to kids everyday in this country, sometimes with good intentions, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Carson’s got an amazing backstory, overcoming poverty and rage issues to become the success he is today. I see his book climbing the bestseller list now…..good !

  16. Roberta says:

    What is sad is that it wasn’t always like this. Back in the late 60’s and early 70’s I taught in the inner city. I wanted to be there for several reasons, one of which was because of the support of black parents. Back then black parents wanted their children to get a good education and supported good teachers because they saw good education as the way out of the ghetto and poverty.

    These parents told there kids to behave and to learn and did what they had to support schools and teachers. I think it changed some time after MLK was assassinated.

    I could not teach these days because so much of that has changed.

  18. SHV says:

    My MIL taught at an “inner city” school for 17 years; retired last year. She said that for the past ten years, each year was worse, basically the children were less “socialized” each year. Lie, cheat, steal and a basic disregard for the life, health and welfare of other human beings. This was at the fourth grade level.

    The few children that wanted to learn and had “reasonable” behavior had a tough time in school. The current situation is basically hopeless with no path for a better outcome even on the far horizon.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Imagine growing up in a home where no adult ever held a full time job and going to jail/prison occasionally was no big deal. What kind of values are you gonna learn?

      • SHV says:

        How do you turn it around? IIRC, it was Wilson Goode, first Black mayor of Phila. who made the suggestion that parents should be given the option of sending their children to boarding schools outside of the city. He was ripped a new ass hole by the “community” for wanting to destroy Black culture and the black community. That was thirty years ago, I suspect the same suggestion would get an even worse reception.

        • myiq2xu says:

          Every single day young black men are murdered in this country. But the one case anyone in the black community cares about is Trayvon Martin.

      • yttik says:

        In the 1970’s, 80% of households were headed by black men.Today 70% of black kids come from single parent homes. Welfare did a whole lot to destroy black families, because you couldn’t get assistance if you had a father in the home. US welfare policies during hard economic times did a whole lot to drive black men out of the home. Add high incarceration rates for black men in there and you have a perfect storm that has swept black fathers right out of the picture.

        • wmcb says:

          If you want to target a welfare program for the black community, how about more assistance if there is a father in the home, not less? Intact families get favored. How about if your kid gets good grades and no discipline referrals you get a bonus?

          Yes, way radical and probably unworkable, but I’m willing to try just about anything at this point.

      • votermom says:

        There are many like this in the slums of my old country. But they don’t get fed a lie about it being because of race. They know the system is stacked against them.

      It’s an epidemic. But we can’t talk about it, unless it’s just a vague “it must be the white man’s fault from all those years of racism.”

      Well, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but that’s kind of beside the point when it comes to FIXING IT.

    I am proud of myself. I restrained from answering a facebook comment from a friend upset that their son’s scout troop had their trip to the white house cancelled.

    In my area, it appears that Section housing vouchers have “gentrified” crime. Back in the “good old days” when public housing was more centralized, “white guilters’ could feels good about themselves and complain about high incarceration rates, failures of society, “no bad people only people making bad choices”, etc., etc. Now that their houses are being robbed, doors kicked in at 3:00 AM, cars broken in, now “why aren’t these thugs being locked up?? where are the police, blah..blah

    Interesting that news media dramatically under reports crime. Without local neighborhood blogs, people wouldn’t have a clue.

    • wmcb says:

      Lefties forget an rewrite history constantly, I’ve learned.

      For instance, the much-decried sentencing difference between crack and powder cocaine (which I agree is unfair.) Obviously, something so seriously unfair must have been an evil plot by horrible racists to keep the black man down, right?

      Nope. Know who pushed, lobbied for, demanded, INSISTED on those tough crack laws back in the day? Black leaders in urban black communities, that’s who.

      Of course, that’s all down the memory hole now, and it was alllllll the idea of someone else, they had nuthin to do with it.

    And call me stubborn if you like , but even if I agree with Corolla , i cannot just breeze on by the sexism , or excuse it . Once again , sexism is “just not important” compared to other issues , which are obviously more important than the issue of sexism , and women are shoved to the back of the line. Sexism is the “okay” discrimination , heck , it is just women after all , who gives a shit ?

    Hubby and I were ranting today over Obamacare, and what a clusterfuck it is.

    We talked about pricing, and some of the new no-insurance “monthly subscription” primary care services cropping up. Amazing how cheaply docs can deliver care if you get both the insurance companies and the govt out of the middle of it. $40 to $60 a month for unlimited, lengthy office visits and phone time? Pretty damn good.

    One of the biggest problems that drives up our healthcare costs, (and there are many) is the disparity of power between doctors and major insurers. Many people don’t know this, but docs are regulated by VERY strict anti-trust statues. They cannot band together and help negotiate for lower prices for their patients or better reimbursement for themselves, or an end to the ridiculous nitpicky forms and rules, because they risk breaking the law and being accused of price-fixing. Doctors are legally banned from almost any kind of collective action when it comes to abusive and coercive insurers. Oh, they can as an individual stop taking that plan. But if so much as a whiff of them having a meeting or exchanging emails to suggest other docs do the same reaches the authorities, it’s lawsuit city, and they are in deep doodoo.

    OTOH, health insurance companies are specifically exempted from anti-trust statutes. See the power imbalance here? So we end up with situations where one or two big insurers own 80% of the market in some urban areas, and can price fix to their hearts content. The area docs, OTOH, cannot go to them as a group and demand a damn thing – if they try to organize in ANY way re: pricing, they get slammed with an anti-trust violation immediately.

    There are structural problems in our health care delivery system that Obamacare did NOTHING to address, and in most cases made even worse.

  26. SHV says:

    ********
    Payment for hospitals vs physcian is also a growing problem. Cardiologist and oncologists are especially hard hit. In my area the large cardiology groups are being bought by hospitals. The docs may get a 3-5 year salary guarantee but after that they are likely screwed especially since the buyout usually contain a no compete clause.

    Docs will likely be forced to unionize inorder to have a chance in a legal system that is stacked against the individual.

    • wmcb says:

      I know, SHV. People don’t realize that a doctors office is a small business. And the days af the independent private practitioner is coming to an end, for precisely the same reasons many other small businesses are. Docs, in order to have a chance at all, are increasingly joining large corporate practice groups, or becoming employees of conglomerate hospital groups, just to have some protection.

      What we are witnessing is the WalMart-ization of medical care. And that’s not good. Join the borg and be assimilated, or die. I have no beef with WalMart per se. I *do* have a beef with the proliferation of large monopolies that drive out all competition.

      But the Left is too busy yelling “EAT THE RICH AND KILL THE CORPORATE OVERLORDS!” to recognize that the problem is not that corps are evil, it is that they are monopolies. And the right is too busy yelling “MARKET COMPETITION!” to recognize that monopolies destroy true market pricing, and are the furthest thing from competition.

      • yttik says:

        Indeed, we are watching the WalMart-ization of medical care. In fact it’s becoming a lot like fast food, except with none of the speed and efficiency of fast food! I seriously considered telling our local med conglomerate that they need to take some lessons from the kid that works down at McDonalds. He can process 40 cars through the drive thru in about 8 minutes. If they’re going to treat us like fast food customers, the least they could do is do it cheaply and efficiently!

  27. SHV says:

    “Docs, in order to have a chance at all, are increasingly joining large corporate practice groups, or becoming employees of conglomerate hospital groups, just to have some protection.”
    **********
    Docs in training today are OK with that….they want to do shift work….the days of docs working 80-100 hours a week and enjoying it are disappearing fast. Priority today is least work, most money and best life style.

  28. yttik says:

    Something that’s really hard to talk about, mostly because of political correctness, is the interdependence between men and women. The destruction of the family and the absence of fathers has created a whole host of social ills in the black community. Of course if you say this, you must be racist, bashing single moms, hating on gay people, being anti-feminist, etc, etc, but that’s not it at all. Many single parents do a heroic job, gay families can thrive, and of course women should never be forced to marry. But men have a great deal of their identity wrapped up in their ability to provide for their wives and children and when the state steps in and takes over, like what happened with welfare in the late 60’s, you have a lot of single men out there with nothing to ground them, nothing to aspire to. Then the sexism and disrespect for women comes in because men have basically been rejected, replaced, their role in society taken away. So here we are after a couple of generations of that, and it’s no wonder we have so many young boys shooting each other, wandering around aimlessly, and investing nothing in their futures. They have no reason to make themselves appealing to women, no reason to make something of themselves so they can support children.

    And then you wind up with people like Chris Brown. The guy isn’t exactly trapped by poverty or held back by oppression, but his spirit sure is damaged goods.
