Has the Word ‘Racist’ Lost Its Power?

White slave masters never admired their black slaves, yet white sports fans all around the world worship their favorite black athletes. Nike endorsements, sports arenas, and college campuses aren’t exactly what I’d call slave ships, chains or whips. Yet, if you listen to black activists, ESPN analysts Michael Wilbon and Jamele Hill, or Black Lives Matter, you’d get the impression that racism and oppression are just as prevalent in America today as it’s ever been. Nothing could be further from the truth, and most American’s instinctively know it.

Democrat overreach has caused a backlash amongst non-blacks. Black racism fatigue is real, and the left is making it impossible to root out real racism by yelling racist every time they “feel” offended by a white person. Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) is the latest to claim White House Chief-of-Staff, Gen. John Kelly, used a racial slur when he implied she was an “empty barrel.” Nonsense! Outlandish accusations like that do nothing to stop racism or improve race-relations. To the contrary, unfounded racial assertions needlessly reopen old wounds by turning all whites into enemies without evidence or warrant.

Consider the fact that over 70 percent of NFL players are black, yet former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently filed a grievance lawsuit against NFL owners for collusion to keep him out of the league. Furthermore, ESPN’s Michael Wilbon, claimed Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, was acting with a “plantation mentality” by saying if his players (employees) kneel during the national anthem, they’ll be benched. Sorry Mr. Wilbon, slaves never averaged $1.9 million annual salaries for playing a game they loved. What an insult to our ancestors! Americans of all political stripes are fed up with haughty liberals judging their heart and intentions based on skin color alone. Now, that’s racist!

Actor and comedian George Lopez recently went on a profanity-laced tirade aimed at a group of black women attending his show who stood up to give him the middle finger. Why did they do it? The ladies were offended Mr. Lopez told a joke about why Mexicans don’t date blacks and don’t allow people to park in front of their homes. Ultimately, the ladies were removed from the comedy show.

Furthermore, The Daily Wire reported Joe Rogan, UFC commentator and host of the podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, went ballistic after hearing white girls who wear hoop earrings are engaging in a fad that’s a “racist” “appropriation of Latina Culture.” Rogan said “the entire country is a melting pot of cultural appropriation, you dumb c***s! That’s the whole idea of having a civilization, it’s that you get to share each other’s food, share each other’s recipes, listen to each other’s jokes and stories, buy each other’s clothes.” Joe Rogan gets our motto, e Pluribus Unum – “from manyone.”

Why do you think the left invented terms like “institutional racism?” For two reasons: they can’t be proved or dismissed. It’s a perpetual talking-point for left-wing Democrats to campaign on in order to secure the black vote. Sadly, far too many Millennials, minorities and otherwise, have bought into the lie that America is a racist nation. Despite the fact they’re free to live out their dreams regardless of their skin color. In other words, they’ve inherited a largely racist free America due to battles our ancestors have already fought. As I’ve written before, a lot of these kids are empty shells looking for purpose in a world that’s given them too much.

The word “racist” has and continues to lose its power because it’s lost its meaning. Prior to President Barack Obama, the word racist meant you were a person who believed by nature your race is superior to others, and you discriminated based on that belief according to the Webster’s Dictionary. Today, the word racist simply means you disagree with Democrats, the political party that founded the Ku Klux Klan.

It should be noted that Mr. Jackson, the article’s author, is a black man.

He gets it and obviously is the type of reasonable, clear thinking person that most whites would be happy to have a beer with and talk about just about anything, including sports and racial matters. It’s like we’ve been saying all along, most whites don’t have a problem with a person’s skin color, it’s the adversarial attitude that is inherent in an activist agitator mindset that we have a problem with.

I abhorred Barack Obama, but not because his skin was black (kinda tan actually), but because he was a far left-wing activist who was hell-bent on changing America to a socialistic, globalist country, far removed from the Constitutional Republic created by our founders. Nevertheless, anytime Obama was scolded for one of his transformational schemes, the source was blasted as a racist. No comment that was negative towards Obama was ever considered as a statement against his politics, it was always labeled a racist statement. 

I can’t speak for everyone, but for me, the race card has expired. It’s been overused to the point of being dog-eared, torn and tattered and no longer has any sting.

Good riddance.

  2. And for what it’s worth, basically, the same thing is happening in Germany, probably most of western Europe. It just looks a little different on the surface, but at the core, it is anti white racism.

  3. Apparently, the notion of non whites being racist against whites is dubbed “reverse racism”, and according to the progressives there is no such thing as reverse racism. Nope, despite all the evidence of racist blacks, whites who are victims of racist slurs better not dare to call out said racists… for fear of being called racist! There’s no hope for society when this level of lunacy has infected so much of the nation.

    • Yep, and the left has “ruled” that whites can’t be discriminated against and blacks can’t be racists. That sounds like Bizarro World to me and anyone with a couple of synapses still firing can see the problem with that proclamation that only whites can be racists.

  4. Great post, and sums it all up perfectly. The real racists in the US aren’t white.

  5. They use it as a diversion tactic when they can’t argue the topic at hand. In Wilson’s case, it diverted attention away from the fact that she eavesdropped on a private phone conversation.

    • That whole episode stinks to high heaven and I think that Trump walked into a setup. According to what Rush said yesterday, the White House calls (beforehand) to find out if someone will accept a call from the POTUS (I guess they don’t want to be turned down) and schedule the call when you say that you’ll accept so Mrs. Johnson knew when the call would be coming and “accidentally” had Rep Wilson in the car with her – and the call was on speakerphone. That’s a crock of obama, for sure.

  6. The race card expired many years ago for me when as a SGT in the army I told a young private that wasn’t doing his job to drop and give me some push-ups. He did and did five and then jumped up and commence to beret me for enslaving him for the last 450 years. he then after I told him to get down again proceeded to poke his finger into my shoulder. Needless to say that was a wrong answer and he spent the next six mo the locked up before being kicked out of the army
    He called me names that I had only heard or read about. honky, Cracker and a few others that I don’t remember but I dared not to call him any names in fear of reprisals on me and it being below my dignity to use
    It’s a shame for one ethnicity to use names and tactics against another without repercussions but the other can.
    I can go on and one but something has to change

    The other thing is so many people giving up their culture just to gain a edge and call themselves black ( Obama is prime example as he was only 1/4 black)

  7. The Left is cunning enough to understand that they gain the advantage when we spend all of our time defending ourselves against their phony cries of racism, and they’re selfish enough not to care how their evil strategy damages us as a nation.

    • Right, CW, it’s unfortunate that while we are trying to advance liberty and democracy in the world, these buttholes keep us playing defense at home, constantly fending off scurrilous accusations. They really are about only one thing – advancing their own agenda.
