Sometimes I am purposely a dollar short and a day late when commenting on the media's distractive stories. In my opinion, Oprah Winfrey's controversial public remarks faulting racism for President Obama's ongoing fall from public grace, are---in part---accurate. I cannot deny the existence of racism in America, especially when one takes an honest look at the Democrat Party history.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is skilled at using deception and false vilification to benefit her career. Ever since her meteoric celebrity ascendancy, Winfrey has played a loud, proud and lucrative role in propagating dangerous myths---designed to mislead minorities and women---that she and the Democrats are the noble champions of advancement for the disadvantaged.
It is not necessary to mine pre-Civil Rights American history to find racism's main vein. The latter half of the 20th century should be sufficient to prove Oprah's assertions valid. Let's have a good long look.
To quote Winfrey, "There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die." She makes a valid point.
In 1964, racially marinated Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, was forced by Republicans to sign Civil Rights legislation. This Republican authored law outlawed discrimination against blacks and women, ended unequal application of voter registration regulations and eliminated school segregation.
It was Johnson's party, the Democrats, who opposed and filibustered this bill. Democrat Strom Thurmond (SC) led fervent opposition to this legislation, publicly condemning it as "unconstitutional, unnecessary, unwise and extended beyond the realm of reason."
Almost immediately after Democrat opposed Civil Rights and Affirmative Action became law, black America saw their job opportunities and wages rise significantly. For the next thirty years, Democrats would claim ownership to Civil rights advocacy by passing laws and funding programs benefiting black America.
By the 1990's, as a result of these Democrat policies, America was experiencing an unhealthy level of minority unemployment and government dependency.
Contrary to the current Democrat narrative, it was the Republican Party and their conservative base, who forced then Democrat President Bill Clinton, to agree to legislation reforming an out of control US welfare system. These reforms, which required an individual to be working to receive benefits decreased overall government dependency and increased the national employment rate, especially among black Americans.
Moreover, minority communities, post "Contract with America," experienced astounding increases in black business ownership as well as increases in black median income. And, once again, the Democrats were left with egg on their face.
After successful welfare reform, Democrat popularity among minorities became uncertain. Therefore, Democrats began to push another false cause wrapped in a myth, affordable home ownership for minorities. Black Americans (and others) rejoiced and dived head first into home ownership creating a felonious housing boom. Right up until the time the economy hiccupped, adjustable rate mortgages (ARM) went through the roof, foreclosure rates among minorities (and others) began to rise, housing values plummeted, and he US economy took a turn for the worst.
As the US economy tanked, unemployment rates among black Americans broke historical records. Black American poverty and government dependency grew at levels not seen since the Great Depression. Democrats immediately began selling this crisis as a racist Republican Presidential blunder. They promised black America to set things right, and Oprah Winfrey jumped in to help them get the job done.
Democrats and Oprah claimed it would require a black Democrat, Barrack Hussein Obama, to get racist America back on a fairer track.
During his first two years as President, Obama enjoyed total control of our Congress and the Executive Branch. He and his party chose (as priorities) ending the war on terror, bailing out Wall Street, healthcare reform and ending global warming. Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi pushed and passed Obama's pro-minority, pro-women, pro-choice, pro-climate change, pro-immigrant and pro-union agenda. It would cost Americans---which includes black Americans---$8 Trillion dollars in US debt.
The following are real consequences of the failing Obama Agenda---opposed by Winfrey alleged racists---brought to black America:
An unreformed and more expensive Healthcare system.
Real unemployment among black American males is (conservatively) over 19%. Among black females, unemployment is higher. The black poverty rate has risen to over 30%. Black households headed by a single mother have the highest rate of poverty at 47.5 %. Record numbers of blacks are living in government housing (section 8), receive TANF cash assistance (welfare checks), relying on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program and are dependent on government provided Medicaid Health Insurance.
Under Democrat Presidential leadership, if blacks manage to graduate from a Public High School (favored by a plurality of Democrats over Charter Schools) Black American students---in obscene numbers---do so without grade level, reading, writing and math skills. Moreover, they cannot master the basic college level curriculum necessary to obtain a worthwhile degree.
Democrat's annual $500 Million dollar subsidy for "women's reproductive services" provided by Planned Parenthood---founded by a racist named Margaret Sanger and praised by Oprah Winfrey---has also had a profound effect on America's black community.
Under current Democrat policies, the rate of abortion among black women is 4 times greater than among white women. Black women account for 13% of the female population, yet one third of the 900,000 babies aborted yearly in America are black. Forty-eight percent of Black female teens have been diagnosed with a STD, and black women between the ages of 15 to 19 are twenty times more likely to have HIV.
These are the Democrat policies (poverty, subjugation, pestilence and genocide),---Obama supported policies and consequences---that are destroying black America. Knock yourself out, Oprah. Call us what you will, but at least our hands---unlike yours and your failing Presidents---are not stained with the blood of black American families who have no productive place in your manufactured Utopia.
Personally, I'm not sure how much more un-opposed Obama agenda American blacks can take from Democrat hearts historically "marinated in racism." Perhaps Oprah could do a movie about that. If she lost a little weight, she could even play racist Michelle or Valerie Jarrett.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
