Racism and Division in America . . .

. . . One Does Not Define The Other!
  • Division will end when everyone reverts back to what the Founding Fathers intended for the Constitution and our nation;
  • However, how do you end racism while continually endorsing it?
by Jim Blockey, Contributing Author: Racism and the division in America today is so vast you might think it irreversible. Some believe these two are one in the same; I do not concur. While there are many similarities the two have totally different remedies.

The division in America is politically driven; half of us are conservative traditional real Americans; and the other half are liberals simply waiting for us real Americans to die off. The conservatives believe the people know what is best for themselves; while the liberals think they know what is best for everyone.

One last thing we are called a divided country and that is true. Remember this when you attempt to compromise or work with the other half. Our goal should not be to compromise or work with those whose desire is to lessen our greatness and wait for us to die.

A very wise man once said “What does light have in common with darkness?” It is our duty to restore the greatness our founders desired, and that can only happen when light continues to shine. When light shines darkness does not fade it dies.

This is an easy fix; simply read what our founders’ intentions were with the Constitution and the Amendments and stop manipulating the words to get to the meaning that will fit your agenda. Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to Justice William Johnson on June 12, 1823 regarding the meaning of the Constitution, it warned,“On every question of the construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted; recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”Racism, although is involved politically, is not driven by politics. With racism you have to consistently remind people of their race.

In a successful marriage a spouse does not consistently remind the other spouse of the wrongs they have committed. Notice how I said “successful.” They definitely would not hold them accountable for the things their great, great, great, great grandfather did to their great, great, great, great grandmother.

Since Obama became president the hatred between races has escalated to at least the civil rights movement in the 60’s if not the civil war. Why? It is simple the media, our politicians and the black leadership in America look for any excuse to escalate it.

We now have a police v. blacks in America, which if you look at the statistics you will realize is not based on any reality. But as soon as the opportunity arises, there is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Obama making the judgment against a white police officer being racist for shooting a black criminal (Jesse, Al, and Obama call victim). Did you hear an apology from any of these men after it was proven Michael Brown not only had robbed a store, but attacked Officer Darren Wilson and try to steal his gun? No, in fact they went to Mr. Brown’s funeral and implied that everyone, including the black witnesses, were mistaken or lying.

The problem is, what will mend America’s race dilemma will take the spotlight away from these black leaders. The only issue keeping the spotlight on Mr. Jackson and Mr. Sharpton is racism; without racism there will be no microphone or TV camera in front of them. You see what America needs to do is refer to crimes as crimes not hate crimes. All the term “hate crime” does is put a focus on our differences.

If a police officer unjustly shoots any individual it should be dealt with in the same manner; race should not enter the equation. If race was the officers’ motivation then he has to suffer the consequences of his racism, if it was not racism, he will nonetheless, suffer the same consequences. That is equality. I believe we have lost the perception of what racism is and that it goes both ways. Racism is simply treating someone a certain way because of their race; whether it is a white individual or black individual performing the act of hatred.

Personally, I almost feel like treating a black individual equally is actually considered racism. While teaching if I removed a white child for calling me a vulgar name it was righteous; yet when I removed a black child for calling me that same name, I was racist.

What is truly sad is; while none of us have ever taken or known personally any individual that has taken any black man or woman as slaves it has fallen upon this generation to consistently defend ourselves from accusations of being racist despite a vast majority of us being unprejudiced. Furthermore, no person of those making these accusations has ever been taken as slave nor known any individual who was a slave.

We are forced to fight over an offense we did not give against those who were not alive to be offended.

This does not by any means declare unfair treatment has not existed; it does not proclaim it does not continue to exist. However, what I am pronouncing is today it exists from both sides and if our true desire is to remedy this quandary it must be dealt with as an individual dilemma rather than a collective one.

Simply put; just because you can formulate an event into a racist incident, does not mean you should. Teach our children when a person does something appalling, it merely means “that person” needs to account for their actions; not the entire race.
