The 75 year old conservative, African-American economist, columnist, political commentator, and John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University invariably perceives the nation as it is, not as politicians and special interest groups pretend and twist it to be, which is rare, indeed.
Okay, he calls himself a libertarian rather than a conservative, but close enough.
In an article titled, “America’s New Racists,” Williams once again ruffles the feathers of his fellow black men, exposing and clearly articulating an ugly truth about American society today and cutting through liberal distortions and misleading propaganda. The truth, censored by the MSM and which only an African-American can say without being accused of rabid racism: “Most racist assaults are committed by blacks.”
If he isn’t labeled as such already, that forthright and documented observation will surely earn the professor designation by the derogatory term “Uncle Tom” which is regularly used by professional black agitators to demean African-Americans who don’t tow and spout the race line, who dare to stray off the new plantation.
Williams personally experienced the poisonous fruits of racism in America and knows whereof he writes when he observes that the racist worm has turned 360 degrees and the former victims of the poison have evolved into the evil-doers. As he says, “What’s worse is there are blacks, still alive, who lived through the times of lynching, Jim Crow laws and open racism who remain silent in the face of it.”
He recounts various recent instances of black racist crime, which have been the subjects of articles on this blogsite as well as others not covered here, including serious incidents at Skidmore College, in Denver, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and on Chicago’s beaches. All involved black gangs committing patently-obvious racist hate crimes against both whites and Asians, although the more punitive hate crime charge is rarely applied by either the police or by the media to the miscreants.
In a scathing and verified indictment of the MSM, Williams audaciously and perspicaciously writes, “In many of these brutal attacks, the news media make no mention of the race of the perpetrators. If it were white racist gangs randomly attacking blacks, the mainstream media would have no hesitation reporting the race of the perps.”
Compounding that miscarriage of journalistic ethics, he adds, “Editors for the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune admitted to deliberately censoring information about black crime for political reasons. Chicago Tribune Editor Gerould Kern recently said that the paper’s reason for censorship was to ‘guard against subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion.’ “ http://bit.ly/iOERAS
Good grief, Gerould! Haven’t whites been subjected to that “suspicion” for decades? Haven’t whites been constantly accused of committing hate crimes against blacks when all the statistics reveal the antithesis is the case? What is your ulterior purpose in censoring the truth? Is it to perpetuate a stereotype? Advance the cause of reverse racism? Instigate a race war with your lies?
Prof. Williams also takes aim at “the black elite, who have a vested interest in racial paranoia.” He doesn’t name names of those black elitists, assuming his readers are fully aware they are the Al Sharptons, the Jesse Jacksons, the Louis Farrakhans and others who thrive on falsehoods and “suspicions” as they literally cash-in on those falsehoods and “suspicions.”
However, Williams does cite the one black elitist who has the most to gain from race-baiting, America’s racist-in-chief, ”a president who has spent years aligned with people who have promoted racial grievance and polarization and appointed an attorney general who’s accused us of being ‘a nation of cowards’ on matters of race and has refused to prosecute black thugs who gathered at a Philadelphia voting site in blatant violation of federal voter intimidation laws.”
Whew! I could have written all that myself, and I have, but as a white man I’m not supposed to say it lest I be called a racist, and I have been.
I could write that AG Holder who freed those thugs, members of the New Black Panther Party, has just proudly announced a grand re-opening of his proven-racist Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division which avoids prosecuting cases against African-Americans, but that would be racist. I could report the story ignored by the mainstreamers that America’s happy wanderer, our FLOTUS, was twice snubbed by South African President Jacob Zuma, but that too might be deemed inconsequential–and racist.
Those stories can wait. I don’t have to write about either one because Walter E. Williams has more than adequately dealt with the country’s foremost racial problem, the virtual war on white America by black America. When we deal with that issue in Obama’s self-proclaimed race-neutral America, maybe we can move on to Holder’s hypocrisy and Zuma’s calculated obviously racist insult of Mrs. O.
