Larry Elder Obviously Doesn’t Suffer From White Guilt


Mediaite:

Larry Elder Explodes At Piers Over Zimmerman: You’re Condescending, ‘Stupid,’ Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself!

Piers Morgan clearly has no qualms about inviting people on his show who fiercely disagree with him or even attack him personally, and tonight’s opening interview with radio host Larry Elder did not disappoint. Elder told Morgan his interview with George Zimmerman trial witness Rachel Jeantel was horrendous and “condescending,” and even told Morgan that he was being “stupid” for his assessment of Jeantel’s character.

[…]

Morgan attempted to call out Elder for questioning Jeantel’s intelligence, grilling him about her educational background as opposed to his. Elder told Piers that he shouldn’t be “treat[ing] black people like children,” and went on another tangent in which he scolded Morgan, saying, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself!”

Elder insisted he never called her stupid–that was Morgan’s word–and continued to lecture Morgan about the real problems in the black community that the media has no interest in talking about.


Larry Elder obviously doesn’t suffer from white guilt.

But wait! There’s more!

SooperMexican:

There are two paths given this divided identity as Americans – we either embrace our common American dreams and aspirations, or band together in a perceived racial grievance against America. The former is encouraged by the conservative movement, and the latter is indoctrinated into us by the liberal media-education-entertainment industrial complex.

For the most part, African-Americans have chosen through their elected representatives to reject America as racist and segregate themselves with a separate cultural identity within the country. This is why nearly 60% of African-Americans believe there is a lot of discrimination in America as opposed to 16% of whites and 22% of Latinos.

This hearkens to a deeper division between the African-American experience and the Latino experience, in that the specter of white guilt from America’s slave-owning past continues to cloud any real progress of the black community to accept its American identity.


I am pretty sure that Ben Franklin never heard of “multiculturalism” but he accurately described it:

“We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.”

    I enjoy SooperM, but believe Larry pegged it closer. In troubled time far too many in the black community fall back way too comfortably to a “victimhood” mentality. Obviously the vile progs/media/politicos feed that mindset, but it wouldn’t be useful to them unless there were an underlying character – what kinder word to use instead of “weakness”? Hmmmmm, got it! – vulnerability that made so many of them easy pickin’s for scoundrels.

    • lyn says:

      “Vulnerability” is the right word. Maybe it is good that many are feeling that way, because they want to make sure their children aren’t victims of racists like Zimmerman. (I know Zimmerman was not a racist, but that’s the narrative those scoundrels and the media created at the start.)

    Here’s an article on the front page of the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/18/us/florida-case-spurs-painful-talks-between-black-parents-and-their-children.html?hp
    It’s a good thing that parents are talking to their children about how to act or dress, but the racial grievance message that Sharpton and Jackson promote is alive and well. SooperMexican’s column addresses that real well. Those black conservatives have to find a way to be the role models that many people desperately need to “embrace our common American dreams and aspirations.” It’s sad that blacks feel they have to be afraid thanks to the race-baiters.

    • 1539days says:

      Remember when Obama told brothers to pull up their pants during the 2008 campaign? Campaign Obama becomes the stern father to the black community, but post-election Obama plays on white guilt and assumes all problems in the black community go back 150 years to slave owners while every immigrant group continues to surpass that community.

      • Constance says:

        Trying to dump “white guilt” on me because of something that happened up until a hundred and fifty years ago in a part of the country where I haven’t even visited by a class of whites who wouldn’t even talk to me unless it was to order me around just makes me mad. I don’t like the part I have been assigned in media’s little imaginary drama.

  3. Jadzia says:

    I’d love to think that this was an only-Nixon-could-go-to-China moment for our culture, but sadly, it probably wasn’t.

    • lyn says:

      Good point! Professor Obama could have had a teachable moment, but he blew it.

      • leslie says:

        It isn’t an accident that our half-white pResident, bronco, didn’t lecture us all on this teachable moment. He chose not to. There is nothing in it for him or for TPTB to bring us all together. As long as there is conflict and division, TPTB win and our country loses.

  4. Lulu says:

    I think we know now why the WH and DOJ wants to have a dialog about an acquittal at a murder trial in Florida. The IRS is expected to be exposed today in a House hearing. Look racist squirrel! Expected testimony will describe the bureaucratic minutiae of evil. The flunkies in Cincinnati ratted the rats out. http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/17/irs-lawyer-says-scandal-was-overseen-by-d-c-names-names/

    • Constance says:

      This is what I want to see. It better get coverage. I’m sure coverage of the IRS persecuting citizens would draw a bigger audience than more righteous mock outrage over Zimmerman.

    • Jadzia says:

      Because obviously, the group in this country that is the most responsible for the oppression of African-Americans is working-poor waitresses, many of whom are probably single moms. When, oh when, will the less-advantaged in this country wake up and realize that a circular firing squad is not going to fix anything?

  5. driguana says:

    Hope NBC loses their peacock’s shirt! This really was both egregious and malicious on their part….racist one could say…and it did contribute to setting a false narrative in this case…the bottom of the “news” barrel…

    • Lulu says:

      ABC may be in more hot water than NBC and that suit hasn’t even been filed yet. NBC is the easy one.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Then the civil suit ? TM’s parents are now having vapors over the not-guilty verdict after being okay with it ? (“We only wanted a fair trial”)

      • lyn says:

        They got a fair trial. They need to accept that. Are they planning to sue GZ forever? GZ needs money, and he cannot fork over whatever he gets to them. What I want to know more about is why the State didn’t humanize TM more. GZ’s defense team threatened to expose the bad side of TM. Why did the State back down? Corey doesn’t seem like a prosecutor who would have run away from that.

      • Lulu says:

        At first they only wanted an arrest to get around the Florida immunity laws for self defense. SYG has immunity from harassment suits thus they don’t like the SYG statutes. The rest of the statute is standard self defense language. I’ve read it and it is comparable to every other states except for the immunity from civil suit.

    • Jadzia says:

      I was going to comment that Zimmerman should hire Richard Jewell’s legal team, until Dr. Wikipedia told me that Jewell said that most of what he collected went to taxes and those lawyers.

  6. driguana says:

    Some of these words and ideas are getting really mixed up and confusing….melting pot, multicultural, diversity…

    And America isn’t the only place….Great Britain and France have huge problems that most Americans are not following very closely or even aware of….it’s a worldwide issue come to think of it….Belgium, Italy, Spain and Portugal also have their “colonial era” issues.

    Ay, hate the the thought but maybe it should be a border-less world….live where you want. America is pretty open compared to lots of other countries. I lived in Liberia, West Africa for four years and was very aware of the constitutional fact that you could not be a citizen there unless you were a “person of color”. Love that…..didn’t define color but that was in their constitution, still is, I believe.

    But then, I think everybody is colored! Plus, everybody’s got a mother and bag of white bones!

  7. conner43 says:

    I wonder if the ‘talks’ that Blacks are having with their children include the fact that they are in far more danger from the young men in the neighborhood than they are from anyone else.

    • Constance says:

      True and since when is it some sort of outrage that a parent would warn their children of possible threats. I warned my blond, blue eyed, very large son to stop cutting through peoples yards to get home quicker as he looked like a man and it’s frightening (to women) or threatening (to men)to have a strange man lurking around your home. I also told my blond, blue eyed daughter about how to be aware of sexual assault and avoid it. So I don’t get the outrage that black parents have to tell their children to act in ways that are safe.

      • conner43 says:

        Isn’t “never get in a car with or talk to strangers” the first sentence parents utter after “use your Inside voice” ?

  8. mcnorman says:

    Rachel is not a “smart cookie.” If she was, she would have taken every opportunity in school to learn how to speak properly. English maybe her second language (after ebonics), but that is no excuse. She, like everyone else has potential to do better. Piers doesn’t realize that he is slapping every Rachel in the face by eschewing his pity speak over how the system has wrongly failed Rachel. Piers seems to lose sight of what this young woman’s priorities have been…having fun and drinking according to her tweets.

  9. lyn says:

    Elder spanks Morgan. For those race-baiters who think GZ escaped punishment, TM’s death will haunt GZ for the rest of his life. I lived in a town where a group of teenagers went to a man’s home and harassed him. He shot at them and one was killed. He was found not guilty and committed suicide a few years later. Those people who are not sociopaths are affected by their actions. The race-baiters are liars, and I hope more people call them out.

  10. Anthony says:

    Since when is pidgin English considered a basis for someone being multi-lingual?

    Rachel claims to be from Haiti. I lived in the WI for almost 4 years in the 1980’s, and spent lots of time in Haiti. That wasn’t a Haitian accent – that shit was straight up hood

    What I find hardest to believe is that Piers (et al) are making this Jeantal the “face of Black America”, which is akin to giving people permission to forego education and assimilate into the American culture.

    How can people ever expect to believe they are treated equally when they continue to convince themselves and their children that they are victims?

    • Anthony says:

      “…to forego education and assimilate *assimilation* into the American culture.”

    • mcnorman says:

      The righteous Al and RJ interview.

    • Has anyone actually heard her speak the other two languages, or are they just taking her word for it? Also, how is her grammar and diction in those other languages? I mean, I can sew by hand, but it’s a suck-ass effort because I never bothered to learn to do it correctly or with precision. I didn’t have or need to.

      • mcnorman says:

        I don’t know what languages she speaks, but I doubt that she is proficient in much of anything except partying. Am I being harsh? I don’t think so, I burned out working with many young RJs that had no desire to move forward.

      • mcnorman says:

        BTW, I can throw a stitch here and there, but I’m wouldn’t want me as a surgeon. 😀

  11. yttik says:

    Piers also doesn’t suffer from white guilt. He suffers from arrogance and self righteousness, that liberal addiction to feeling superior. He doesn’t wallow in the past and present crimes of America because he wants to make her a better place, he wallows because he isn’t from this country and he gets high off of looking down on us. He himself, remains detached from all this, imagining his hands are clean.

  12. DandyTiger says:

    Piers is such an idiot. I’m trying to remember, who was the last PM in England who was of african decent? Slipping my mind. And who are the house of lord members of color? And this ass is lecturing us.

      But guns and foxhounds are evil don’t you know. But pressure cooker bombs and lapdogs of the rich and famous are cool. It is a cultural lens he uses.

      • elliesmom says:

        Speaking of pressure cooker bombs, I read the Rolling Stone article about the alleged Boston Marathon bomber. It’s a whole lot of nothing. I am interested in how Cambridge Rindge and Latin reacts to the characterization of it as s a place where most of the kids are high all of the time. Usually they brag about how many different nations are represented and having Ben Affleck as an alumnus. This article mentions both of those things so the author is talking about the same school.

      • You forgot badgers. Badgers are the devil’s own spawn.

  13. conner43 says:

    The bloodthirsty media will not be happy until there are a few more dead bodies from riots and other confrontations. It’s all about the ratings, isn’t it ?

    • Constance says:

      It can’t be about ratings because the ratings of CNN and MSNBC suck. It is about advancing some sort of narrative to distract from the corruption of government under the Democrat control. And our government has been corrupted by Democrats so they can have power.

  14. Anthony, what I don’t get is why aren’t they making this kid–Temar Boggs– the face of Black America? Doesn’t he look more like he could be Obama’s son?

    • elliesmom says:

      Because it’s a wonderfully positive story. No money to be made off of it. Wouldn’t it be great if the guy who offered Rachel Jeantal the college scholarship offered it to this young man?

    More IRS on Tea Party shenanigans, versus Christine O’Donnell

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/17/former-gop-senate-candidate-christine-odonnell-tol/

    Former GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell told her tax records were breached
    Errant lien on house placed, publicized
    More than two years after her upstart Senate campaign rocked the Delaware political world, Christine O’Donnell got an unexpected contact from a U.S. Treasury Department agent warning that her private tax records may have been breached.

    The phone message earlier this year shocked the battled-scarred candidate, a tea party favorite who knocked off Republican mainstay Michael Castle in the primary before losing in a bid to win Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s former seat.

    “Ms. O’Donnell, this is Dennis Martel, special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury in Baltimore, Md. … We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual,” he said in the January message left on her cellphone.

    For Ms. O’Donnell, the message immediately raised red flags.

    On March 9, 2010, the day she revealed her plan to run for the Senate in a press release, a tax lien was placed on a house purported to be hers and publicized. The problem was she no longer owned the house. The IRS eventually blamed the lien on a computer glitch and withdrew it.

    • votermom says:

      Even before she got the message, the IRS was a sore subject for Ms. O’Donnell and her family.

      She fought through a three-year audit into her personal finances that ended with her repaying $1,100 to the federal government. Family and friends also were subjected to audits, though they were cleared, she said.

      She had been warned that such events were possible.

      As she was considering a Senate run, Ms. O’Donnell said she was told by a prominent political figure in Delaware that if she challenged Mr. Castle, the IRS and others would “F with her head.”

      Ms. O’Donnell said she has reason to believe her political opponents were behind the scheme.

      I don’t have to like O’Donnell to be outraged by this.

    • underwhelmed says:

      What else can you expect from the guy who has sealed divorce records released to get rid of a political rival? It’s all part of the pattern, an escalation of MO.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/florida-black-panthers-justice-for-trayvon-rally-falls-flat

    Despite the fiery rhetoric emanating from The New Black Panther Party in the wake of the Zimmerman trial, a scheduled rally at the steps of a Florida courthouse drew far fewer than hoped for, as reported by the Florida based right-of-center news portal

    Sporting the military rank insignia of Major and the title of Chairman, the leader of the New Black Panther Party of Tampa Ali Muhammad organized a “Justice for Trayvon Martin” rally that managed to draw a paltry three followers.

    Festooned in his finest livery consisting of a beret, sash and megaphone, Chairman Muhammad stated that since George Zimmerman was found not guilty of both murder and manslaughter by a Sanford jury, his heart was heavy and his blood pressure up..

    bwaaaahhaahhaaa THREE followers .. I hope the rest of the turnout is as good for any further demonstrations .

    • Internal Exile says:

      It sounds like Major Disaster has a severe case of Che Guevara envy. 😛
