A "Conversation" About Race

by Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough.

But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. "Reverend" Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for deserving white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Reverend Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

The last line of the story must have gotten edited out: "And we are SICK of your bullshit!"

Good to see you being that one back for your readers here.

Pat has too much common sense to ever be President himself, sadly, this country wants jackasses like Obama.

If Pat is trying to get through to the niggers with rational discussion then he is wasting his time. The niggers want 40 trillion more from the hated whites. The niggers want to wipe out the whites who gave them 40 trillion, even if it means dropping to African standards of living. Just like they did in Rhodesia and are doing in South Africa. Whites have to behave with disregard to the interests of all other races from now on. Whites first, middle and last. Unfortunately, the chance of that happening any time soon is remote.

Congrats to Pat! This man has really been stepping up to the plate and spitting in the face of the establishment more than ever now that he is reaching the age of "I just don't give a shit about consequences!" It must hurt ZOG's feelings that his books are always best sellers and flowing off the charts.

Pat talks big but remember he had a nigger running mate when he ran for president last time. I also don't care for a candidate that has a Jew brother in law. Words don't mean shit. Actions do.
