From Honoring Trayvon Martin by Daren Jonescu:

Having said all that, if we want to be philosophical about this, we might observe that there is, indeed, a way to honor Trayvon Martin. It is for the white-dominated American media, the white-dominated entertainment industry, the white-dominated Democratic Party, and the rest of white-dominated progressive America to stop telling young black people like Trayvon Martin that they are not “really black” unless they are fighting, using drugs, talking and acting like thugs, and citing “racism” as their excuse for everything. It is for America’s first half-white president to stop treating black Americans as an aggrieved underclass that can only be protected against injustice and poverty by voting Democrat. It is for that half-white president to stop trying to earn “his props” by flaunting his friendship with the millionaire “pimps” and “hoes” of the “black entertainment industry” who sell drugs, violence, racism, and sex as the secret path to “coolness,” i.e., acceptance, when in truth — as the lives of so many of these “entertainers” beyond age thirty prove — the heaven they are selling is in fact the pit of an inescapable hell. Enough of the White House gala evenings and Michelle Obama tweetings about Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and the rest of the creeps, punks, and porn stars-cum singers.

Duke Ellington brought American “black entertainment” to the heights, mixing his muse comfortably, and on a footing of real equality, with Shakespeare and Steinbeck, Tchaikovsky and Grieg, always studying, always learning — so that today, his supposed heirs can rant in a drugged-up stupor about killing cops and defiling women. Ella Fitzgerald became America’s “First Lady of Song” by expanding her repertoire from the popular dance tunes of her early days to masterful renderings of Gershwin, Porter, and Ellington in the 1950s; her heiresses today slink around like strippers using words and images to enliven the basest sentiments of the perpetual pubescents that comprise today’s pop music audience. Today’s so-called black leaders, including their “beige” president (to use Ellington’s phraseology) are firmly on the side of the glamorizors of cop-killing, rape, and prostitution. They have deliberately squandered or obscured the gains of the twentieth century for their own evil, oppressive purposes.

If you want to “honor Trayvon Martin,” stop actively corrupting the character and sentiment of each new generation of Trayvons. Stop encouraging, excusing, and even praising behavior that causes broken families, government dependency, moral decay, illiteracy, the degradations of a permanent underclass — and, all too often, sad wastes like the “tragedy” of February 26, 2012.

In short, if you want to honor Trayvon Martin, end American progressivism now.


Trayvon Martin is dead. D-E-A-D. He won’t be coming back.

Justice is for the living.

The death of Trayvon Martin is a relatively minor tragedy affecting a small number of people. It has no deeper meaning or significance. But it is an example of a much larger problem. A problem that does need to be dealt with.

Unfortunately it’s a problem that we can’t fix.

By “we” I mean white people. I am white. I know most of you are white as well. Our children and grandchildren are also white. The people who must fix the problem are black. (But white people can help if we stop enabling the problem.)

Black leaders, black parents and other members of the black community must work together to change course. Especially black parents. They must teach their children the value of hard work, education, self-sufficiency, individual responsibility and thrift. They must teach their children respect for others, respect for the law and to not hate and fear white people.

It will be hard work. They must be good role models for their kids. That means working shitty jobs at low pay instead of accepting welfare. That means sitting down and reading and doing homework with their kids every night. It means getting out of the slums both mentally and physically.

Many blacks have already done these things. When Jim Crow Segregation was still the law of the land black neighborhoods contained black professionals and the black middle class. When segregation ended they were the first to flee to the suburbs. That’s why today’s black leaders rarely live in black neighborhoods.

The Vile Progs would call these words racist. But racism is the belief that some races are superior to others. It also includes the belief that things like laziness, low intelligence and criminality are racial characteristics. I don’t believe those things.

Black people have proven that they can excel and succeed in any endeavors. They have reached the top in every field, including athletics, academics, science, medicine, business, law and politics.

But there is a cultural sickness in the black community. It is not unique to them, but it is epidemic in our inner cities and suburban slums. It is a culture of violence, drugs, crime, irresponsibility and dependency. It not only accepts these things, it glorifies them.

There are no magic wands. We are not going to cure these problems with more government programs. We’ve been trying to do that my whole life and it has gotten us nowhere.

But what do I know, I’m blinded by my white privilege.

    When I talk about the value of education I am not talking about bullshit classes like “African-American Studies”. WTF job can you get with a degree in AA Studies?

    Black parents need to make sure their kids get degrees they can use, like engineering, accounting, law, and medicine.

    • elliesmom says:

      The first thing they need to do is make sure they can read, write, and sign their name.

    • Some say a degree in “Divisiveness” is a ticket to financial success. Just make sure to live elsewhere.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Great post klown. 🙂

    • trixta says:

      I understand your frustration, Klown, but I must disagree with you for once. I don’t think AA Studies (or similar studies) are BS classes. As a country as uniquely diverse as ours I think such studies are valid, just as, say, feminist studies, literary and visual arts, etc., and have a place in a larger modern liberal arts education. But I do think the ideologies and political frameworks of such areas of study do need to be constantly examined, reexamined, and rethought. (This is where I am with feminism now.) Sure engineers, accounting, law and medicine are all great career choices but it would be unrealistic to expect everyone to choose such choices. As far as the deterioration of race relations in this country is concerned, I blame the leadership of this country — our first White African American President Obama.

  3. Constance says:

    Progressive-ism needs to be exposed as a religion and not considered a political philosophy. They have their own myths and they feel rewarded when they faithfully accept Progressive thought and behavior. That is OK. But we have a secular government and they are trying to impose their religion on everyone. What the Progs need to do is display their religiously held values by creating companies and tax free orgs that implement them (not tax the rest of us to pay for their pet projects). They could do this by creating a company that offers a low cost health insurance policy that people would want to buy and they could subsidize folks who couldn’t buy it with donations from Progs. Get this crap out of the government and out of the tax system.

    Let’s start in baby steps if necessary. No hitting. No hitting because someone looks at you. No hitting because you feel powerless because it will not make you powerful. No hitting because some dumbass will make excuses for you because they think doing so makes them better than you. No hitting because you are as an individual better than that and all of the dumbasses who make excuses for you.

  5. DandyTiger says:

    Like unions, esp. non government unions, black americans might want to notice that the Democratic party doesn’t help them. They make noises like the will. They use them and help stir them up and keep them angry. All for the purpose of helping the Democratic party. But the party isn’t really on their side. No party, if they can get away with it, will be on anyone’s side. If they know you’re going to help them and vote for them no matter what, you’re the last people on earth they’re actually going to give a shit about. Time to shop around. Get the two main parties, and other parties, to fight for you and to earn your vote. Just a thought.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Same goes for various groups clinging to the Republican party. Neither party is on your side. Shop around. Make them dance. Stay independent.

        LOL, I like “make them dance,” Dandy!

        However, I’d like to see some statistics on black Republicans and black Democrats and who is committing the most stupidity. I could be wrong, but I bet those who have left the Dem party are more likely to believe in personal responsibility and probably have a strong religious bent. The entire platform of the Dem party is victimization, envy, and making somebody pay.

    Where is the outrage over the genocide that is taking place in Chicago, and most other once-great cities?
    Sometimes I think Rahm and Obama, along with their elitist friends, actually hope young Black men will just keep killing each other. It’s easier and cheaper than incarceration or failed social programs.

  9. OT. Filed under What Could Possibly Go Wrong?, the Beholden State is once again toying with a draconian solution to a trifling problem. It seems the Coastal Commision is toothless, and can’t enforce it’s decisions because it doesn’t have enough power – and staff. So of course the prog solution is to give an environmental advisory organization stronger quasi-judicial powers, plus additional permanent prosecutorial and investigative staff. Can anyone see permament big bucks here? And the potential for abuse and problems?

    Why not clear the commisions backlog of moldy cases by seeking legislation to enable a “special prosecutor” program where bidding law firms can pursue cases they’ve researched, and be paid out of settlements garnered from their cases? Like a bounty system? That way today’s scofflws might be encouraged to quckly settle and the remaining ancient cases could be pled out or dismissed?

  11. Internal Exile says:

    Yes, young people need to be taught that violence will get them nothing but jail and/or an early grave, and they need to get educated and get jobs, BUT

    The jobs have to be available, not shipped overseas because the elite can get what amounts to slave labor there.

    And the jobs need to pay enough to live on.

    I realize this view will not make me popular here, since the Market (capital M, of course) is revered here, if not quite worshipped. 😛

    IMHO, the profit motive is like fire.

    Properly contained, it is essential to civilization.

    However, it is lethally destructive without that proper containment.

    I don’t think USAmerican-style conservatism contains it safely enough.

    YMMV. :mrgreen:

      If you have any ideas on how to create lots of high-paying jobs I’d love to hear them. Smarmy insults I could do without.

      • Internal Exile says:

        I wasn’t aware that was smarmy or an insult, rather than a humorous reference to the local political climate, but I’d be willing to edit it out if I had an “edit” feature.

      • yttik says:

        How about rather then looking for a job or waiting for one to find you, people start their own? Become self employed, start a business.

        I’m actually getting tired of hearing this, “there are no jobs” crap as an excuse for everything. I know what it’s like out there, I live in an area with 14% unemployment. Just the same, many people, myself included, have so many jobs we can hardly do them all. Personally i don’t think a lack of jobs is the problem, but rather a lack of people willing to work. Many people want high wages, full benefits, free pizza, and great wealth immediately. I don’t know when Americans became like this, but many young people certainly are.

        • Internal Exile says:

          How many businesses could find enough customers in a weak economy, in which most of the money belongs to people who already have everything they need, or even want?

        • DandyTiger says:

          Creating and being your own company is very liberating. But it can be frick’ing hard work. Still, I highly recommend it.

        • DandyTiger says:

          How many businesses could find enough customers in a weak economy, in which most of the money belongs to people who already have everything they need, or even want?

          All of them that will make it. No one said it was easy, or that someone would hold your hand. You have to be creative, and work hard.

          Here’s the real trick. Make something new that they don’t even think they need or want, because they haven’t thought of it yet.

    • DandyTiger says:

      I don’t think either party is interested in open capitalism. They both like a tightly integrated corp/gov relationship, promoting monopoly and gov. corruption. They both like things just the way they are. Neither party gives a crap about the poor or the middle class. They’re both for outsourcing and an open flow of cheap subservient labor across the border. They sound different of course, but the results are the same no matter who’s in power.

      • Internal Exile says:

        True. With some honorable exceptions, the elected and appointed officials of both major parties work for the same elite, when they are not actually members of that elite.

        • Internal Exile says:

          I forgot to add that the big so-called capitalists don’t want real capitalism. They want that partnership with the govt. that guarantees them that sweet tax money from Uncle Sugar.

          Actually, capitalism is much like its moribund adversary, Communism. Both sound great in theory, but in the real world, the nasty parts of human nature turn them into some very nasty systems indeed.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Libertarians would argue of course that the shackles of government on enterprise is exactly the problem. It’s a two sided set of constraints. That’s the thing that creates the gov/corp tie that corrupts and creates monopolies. Left alone, competition will by itself insure corps stay small and agile. It was the corrupt gov/corp connection that created the robber barons and other monopolies and corrupt gov. over time. Similarly austrian theory economists would say similar things about those relationships as well as gov. grips on monitory policy. I think moderation is probably a place to go, but they have some good points.

      • myiq2xu says:

        We need to have something like a “small business facilitator” office and/or a “consolidated multi-agency facilitator.

        Imagine if you wanted to start a small business and you went to ONE place and paid ONE fee and got ONE set of papers to fill out, then ONE government specialist guides you thru the process and helps you prepare the paperwork. They arrange all necessary inspections a permits.

        Best part: If you answer all the questions truthfully and jump thru the hoops they set out for you then you cannot be penalized because they screwed up and you didn’t get all the proper permits – and they have to help you fix it at no extra charge!

        • Lulu says:

          We have a small business center where I live. They assist with all the stuff you suggested and it is staffed with business professor/teachers and business owners locally who volunteer their time. There are even some bankers and attorneys who assist and advise start ups for free. It is located in the community college and is funded by the property taxes that fund the community college. Out of county residents who use it pay a small fee of like $300. They have won state and federal SBA awards. It is not that hard to do nor expensive especially. My bakery owner used it. Of course this is a backward hick town in Texas that hates everyone and wants everyone to fail./s/

    Why should the powers that be in the current administration care for improving the lives of the lower classes and bring them up even to working class , when the Obama administration can safely sympathize with them as “victims” ; the race baiters make a comfy living ,but do not live in the poor neighborhoods , and before you know it , the slogan “Remember Trayvon and Vote “will be on their lips for the 2014 elections .
    A man ( Obama) who defended a scum sucking landlord who deprived “his people ” of heat and water in a Chicago winter , and got him off with a fine of $25.00 ; married to a woman who made hundreds of thousands of dollars by patient dumping poor patients from the hospital for whom she worked, to another in a poorer neighborhood , is not going to care if there are riots and racial divide . It serves his purpose to create it ,if it does not exist.
    Now we have ,not only , Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste , but also , and “If We Don’t Have a Crisis , Let’s Create One “.
    All Obama has to do , is pretend he doesn’t like it, and appear sympathetic while he is busy stirring up division . Let the blacks hate the whites more and more , and represent the Republicans as” the whites”, and get out the voters .
    I know I am probably over the cynicism line , and it doesn’t mean I don’t want all of the solutions that exist to be implemented and I wish more than anything for that to happen . I hate the feeling that my country is slowly being flushed down the toilet . But Obamas hand is on the toilet handle .

    • Swan — what an analogy. Someone needs to make a cartoon of Obama flushing us down the toilet.

      Not only did those Rezko properties have major heat and water issues, they also had sewage backing up into their kitchen sinks and roaches coming out of the outlets. Can you imagine being a working class minority family going through that?

      • swanspirit says:

        I can , more than imagine . I have been to homes to do home nursing care , where the floor is falling in the kitchen , another that was heating using the gas stove , but the doors to the kitchen wouldn’t shut , And I have been , as a nursing supervisor , on the receiving end of patient dumping , where the dumper was not even courteous or professional enough to provide paperwork or meds to accompany the patient , but we had to wait for papers , because they were in that big of a hurry , goddess forbid anything happen to the patient in transit , or while waiting . The people who do these things never experience the actual consequences ; or are anywhere around when the rubber meets the road . And that seems to be their objective , to avoid those kinds of consequences .

    ” Personally i don’t think a lack of jobs is the problem, but rather a lack of people willing to work.”
    *******
    It’s both. I have several friends who were “downsized” from well paying jobs in “IT”. One person in his early 50’s got a job delivering morning newspapers and did that for a year before finally getting a temp IT job and finally, last week, full time. The second person worked the job market for 6 months and finally got a full time position. These are the lucky ones in an economy with a real unemployment rate of 16-20%.

    The contrast are many of the people that my wife sees in a city hospital ER. As part of the medical history are questions about employment, work history, etc. Many of the people have never had a job and the concept of having a job is a totally foreign concept. Hitting the “lottery” for these people is getting approved for SSI. The current yearly cost for Federal and state means tested assistance is almost a trillion $$$ per year and rising. This isn’t sustainable and the question come of what will happen when the money flow is severely reduced.

        His offer is predicated on her being able get out of high school and successfully take the SATs. He has offered her a tutor to do that. While I agree with you that she probably won’t take his offer, she should at least take him up on that part. It’s been my experience that many adults who didn’t value education in their youth do eventually. If you want to go to college when you’re 35, it’s possible to be very successful at it, but if you have to start by finishing high school, it’s daunting. Rachel said she hasn’t passed the FCATs – something most kids do as sophomores so she has ways to go to be ready for the college scholarship.

        • elliesmom says:

          Mary, the FCATs are easier to pass than the GED test. Unless Rachel is sorely lacking in high school credits, which she wouldn’t be if she’s telling the truth about being a senior, passing through high school with an official diploma would be the easier route. With enough credits to graduate, she’d only need to pass reading, writing, and math tests. For a GED she’d also have to pass science and social studies tests. I had several students who were shocked when they failed the GED because they thought it was an easy way to get out of school. But she should still jump all over the offer of a tutor.

If the case is prosecuted and Zimmerman goes to jail, then all that delicious outrage dissapates. If he keeps the investigation open and Zimmerman continues to be “free,” the administration can use that to get out the vote.

    Too good not to share from Paula Priesse

    July 16th – Oh my! Imagine being a poor PC obsessed lib now having to choose between two of your favorite aggrieved special interest groups. Last night on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live,” prosecution “star witness” Rachel Jeantel talked about how she and Trayvon Martin thought Zimmerman may be a gay rapist. Jeantel: “Yes. Definitely after I say may be a rapist, for every boy, for every man, every — who’s not that kind of way, seeing a grown man following them, would they be creep(ed) out? And people need to understand, he didn’t want that creepy ass cracker going to his father or girlfriend’s house to go get — mind you, his little brother was there. You know — now, mind you, I told you — I told Trayvon it might have been a rapist.” Say again Ms. Jeantel? Surely you’re not insinuating that Martin went after Zimmerman because he thought he was gay? Leaves only one final question: Who exactly was profiling whom? Wanna take that one Sharpton? Maddow? Grace? Anybody? Schadenfreude: “The enjoyment obtained from the troubles of (the liberal media).” P

    • DeniseVB says:

      I read about this earlier, waiting for GLAAD’s response 😉 myiq was right, TM was incited by his “friend” to attack GZ, whom he profiled as a gay stalking pediophile ?

      Also read that Jeantel was giving a full free ride to any historic black college of her choice, after she gets her GED. Wonder if she’ll pursue that?

      • elliesmom says:

        If the DOJ goes after Zimmerman for civil rights violations, he should say he was profiled by Jeantal and Martin for being gay. Even if he isn’t, he should “come out of the closet” so to speak. Let them try to prove he isn’t bisexual, and he has Jeantal on tape saying they thought he was a “creepy ass cracker rapist of small children” or something like that. I don’t do ebonics very well. I made my students speak English in my class.

        And she’s too stupid to see what a gift she’s been offered. I nearly wet my drawers when I read a comment that said she should be able to go to any college she wants – like Harvard.

      And yet, Rachel also said the word “cracker” meant a security guard or police (anyone in legal authority–hell, the prosecutors could be crackers).

      It left me a tad confused—like she changed her story depending on her own whim.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Rachel lacks black history cred. I think the urban dictionary says it’s roots go back to slavemasters who cracked the whip (cracker) and they were usually “white”, historically 🙂

        So if they called GZ a “cracker”, by her definition then, they knew he was a security/police authority and not a gay child rapist ?

        Argggh, my head hurts 😀

        • Mary says:

          Me too (head hurts). Her story changes.

          She also explained to Piers that in her neighborhood, what Trayvon did to George was called a “whoop-ass,” and would never result in death. Just a “whoop-ass.” And she laughed, as if it was normal, and neighborhood entertainment .

          Bizarre.

      Any male who disagrees with the decision of the all female jury is a patronistic misogynistic sexist pig who disrespects women.

    Some of the people making comments seem to be unaware that Jason Riley is black. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323394504578608182550247030.html

      That’s a great article. Naturally Jason Riley must be wracist 🙂

      What astounds me the most is the number of people who are claiming that the fact that more than 11,000 black folks have been murdered since Martin was shot, is completely irrelevant. Yeah, well I guess it is if your alleged love for the black community is just a bunch of bullshit! Honestly, reading some of those comments really ticked me off. So the actual, real life problems facing the black community are not relevant?? Is that because your need to feel all victimized and self righteous about Martin trumps your concern for blacks? Why yes, yes it does.

      Joy Reid doesn’t get, that most of the country sees her and the Zimmerman haters as the lynch mob.

      No wonder MSNBC’s ratings are in the tank. Sheesh

    Liz Cheney to Challenge Sen. Enzi in Wyoming GOP Primary

    Some GOPers are losing the shit on this. I don’t vote in Wyoming but my standard rule with elections is those seats belong to the people.

    Way off topic
    I was watching a very pathetic game show earlier hosted by Jane Lynch. Two regular people joined by 4 B list celebrities playing put pictures of the actor in order by timeline. And charades with the movie titles. Strange. In final lightning round for the bonus had to guess the celebrity being described. Palin was called stupid and this evoked laughter from the panel. Seriously. Making pretend to words written by someone else qualifies these tools to laugh at her. little jaded as in my bartender/waiter days in NYC I dealt with several of them and i doubt MENSA will be extending an offer,
    Also I think Cher’s twitter feed should be a premium cable comedy.She is out of her gourd.
