It is time to grow up people.
On Yahoo’s homepage, the lead story at the moment I type this is “Caddie makes racist remark about Tiger”
Steve Williams caddied for Tiger Woods for years, then during Tiger’s rebound from his litany of affairs that derailed his career, he fired Williams. Subsequently, Williams rebounded to caddy for Adam Scott who went on to win the Firestone tournament. Williams was very happy with the win and gloated to CBS that the victory “was the best win of his life.”
Recently, Williams speaking about the victory said, “I wanted to shove it up that black —hole.”
You can’t say “black”?
You can’t! Not if you are white. Caucasian. A cracker. A honkey (do people even still use that term?) Think about it. Think about the last time (if you’re white) you said “black” in public when not speaking to blacks. You paused, looked around, and then whispered “black”.
Whites are paranoid to use a descriptive term that refers to a specific race. A term that is not even offensive and is commonly used. That is how paranoid white Americans have become. Do you think that helps bridge any racial divides that might still remain? Of course not. Making people paranoid from expressing their First Amendment Right might actually lead to ill feelings more than just letting people speak. We have the right, or should, to say anything we wish, no matter how ignorant. And, thank God, people have the right to tell you how dumb (or smart) what you said was.
The internet is a glorious thing. Herman Cain could never hope to be elected president as a member of the GOP if not for the internet (and Fox News). But, the internet helps even the playing field. His being near the top of the polls of the GOP nomination has led to more media scrutiny of sexual harassment allegations than during the entire Bill Clinton era. Any American over the age of 35 recognizes that for what it is. A corrupt media. At this point, I’m not even throwing my weight behind Cain for the nomination. I still lean a little towards Newt Gingrich. But, I might prefer Cain as the Executive and Newt as the VP. (I would be just as happy with a Newt/Marco Rubio ticket).
The glory of the internet is it is empowering blacks, I mean African Americans, who lean conservative to speak out. They realize that they are not such a minority as they fear. Some on the Left will lead you to believe that an African American selling drugs on the street corner is authentically “black”, but Condoleezza Rice, Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, etc are not. What?! Seriously?! Yep. Just listen to the news and draw your own conclusions. I have already drawn mine. Liberals force blacks into a certain stereotype, whereas Conservatives accept people strictly on their beliefs. But, Democrats will have you believe Republicans are racists. It is not worth the energy arguing anymore. The truth is coming. The internet just allows too much access to knowledge for the truth not to come out eventually. The failing Socialist/Liberal/Democrat policies in America are coming to an end.
Not only will America be a better place for it, but the entire World.
