Racist!! I Guess I’m a Racist
My brother is in Special Olympics – he works his ass off and puts his entire heart into it and excels. I could not be more proud of him, yet…I don’t think he should compete in the other Summer Olympics.
My older son used to want to focus his collegiate sports future on tackle football but has since moved to baseball due some advice from me. Our ancestry suggests that he will be about 120 pounds and 5’7” when he goes to college and I thought his genetics might not be ideal for football.
The current definition of racism is based upon any viewpoint less than complimentary therefore I am a racist. My kids and brother are perfect but I am too much of a racist to see it. Before this epiphany I thought I was avoiding setting them up to fail. Now – I know that I am in the ranks with Justice Scalia – fellow racist. WSJ on Scalia
In this enlightened time I now realize that grades are also a tool for racists to keep certain groups out of the best colleges. As I reflect on this I have come to the conclusion that I have been the victim of racism – that rejection from Brown and Harvard – they only looked at my SAT, ACT and grades – they never considered my ethnic background. RACISTS!!
I admit it – I despise my Italian, Irish, German, French, Polish, Swedish ancestry as it draws racism. No one with my ethnic background has been elected President, or to the Senate. Most of my relatives never went to college, I don’t think any of us are wealthy. No lawyers, doctors or bankers either…RACISM!!!!!!
Take it another step – my world view – I look at Ben Carson and Justice Clarence Thomas and see two brilliant accomplished men at the top of their field. I look at Condoleezza Rice and Mia Love and see two incredibly intelligent and talented women with bright futures. All of them setting examples for all of us on how to overcome challenges like racism and gender bias.
I then look at Obama and see the living embodiment of what Scalia writes. This man only got into Yale based upon ethnic background and not any objective measurement like grades and testing. He should never have reached this level and was and is set up to fail by a politically correct educational system too afraid to appear racist.
This has been abundantly clear from the beginning and is based entirely upon his complete lack of independent thought, intelligence and common sense which is illustrated by his dogmatic approach to every decision he makes or is too stupid to make.
The most disappointing and poignant element of the Obama Presidency will be that our first black President will leave a legacy as the worst President in the history of this country. That is nothing to do with the color of his skin but rather the content of his character.
If only Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, Allen West, Alan Keyes, Herman Caine, Ben Carson and so many others could have been elected then we would have a President that fulfill Martin Luther King’s dream of “based upon the color of their skin but the content of their character”.
This is what liberal racism has wrought – people elected Obama due his skin color and not the content of his character. Now I fear that the road forward for other people of dark skin pigmentation will be forever more challenging because we elected an incompetent that true racists (primarily liberals) will tout as indicative of their potential, rather than the natural and logical production of a system focused on political correctness rather than truth.
I was a liberal and I left for many reasons including the fact that liberals don’t believe in people but rather government. They look at the color of skin as a determination of intelligence and then orient policy for what they deem less intelligent beings that need help from the government.
Conservatives do the opposite – they see the potential in every human and seek to unlock and direct that God-given talent by providing an environment in which they can succeed. This is the premise of our nation’s founding in which we believe in every individual’s freedom and inalienable rights regardless of their pigmentation.

Scalia could not be more correct and I encourage you to take the logical step forward and see that Obama should be the benchmark for the ineffectiveness of affirmative action that harms rather than helps people of intelligence and potential. On the other side of the coin, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Mia Love, Alan Keyes, Allen West, Herman Caine, Ben Carson all illustrate the potential that lies within each of us based upon overcoming significant challenges through sheer determination and perseverance in a nation that used to provide the proper environment based upon the content of their character to succeed.
