Socialism and Racism, together under Obama

Obama is reversing one of the old land policies of the federal government, and will begin nationalizing land to transfer administrative control to Indian Reservations

In addition, officials said, the government will spend $2 billion to unravel the legendarily complex trust system, in which hundreds or thousands of people can own tiny fractions of a single plot of land. The government will try to buy back these fractions until it has sole ownership of the parcels, and then allow them to be used in ways chosen by tribal governments.

With racist-socialist policies like this, no wonder Obama is the least popular President in American history.

Sotomayor: Back to the past

Racists support Sotomayor:

Gary Marx, executive director of the conservative Judicial Confirmation Network, said he saw a playbook for the campaign against Judge Sotomayor in the successful attacks on Lani Guinier, whose 1993 nomination to a top Justice Department post was withdrawn after an outcry over her writings arguing for alternative voting systems intended to better represent minorities.

“We will see ‘racial quotas’ become a much bigger issue than they might have been had another nominee been brought forward,” Mr. Marx said.

But civil rights advocates, including Ms. Guinier, say times have changed in their favor, also citing Mr. Obama’s election. In an interview, Ms. Guinier said she saw the debate over Judge Sotomayor’s nomination in part as an opportunity for civil rights advocates to push back against the kind of criticism that had thwarted her own nomination.

“It is easy to understand the idea of viewing an individual on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin,” Ms. Guinier said, but race also is a social phenomenon of politics, history and economics that demand deliberate policy responses.

This is not surprising, as Sotomayor is well known for racist remarks that she thought better of after White House officials criticized her for them, years later.

Wise is relative

Sonia Sotomayer:

Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences, a possibility I abhor less or discount less than my colleague Judge Cedarbaum, our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging. Justice O’Connor has often been cited as saying that a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases. I am not so sure Justice O’Connor is the author of that line since Professor Resnik attributes that line to Supreme Court Justice Coyle. I am also not so sure that I agree with the statement. First, as Professor Martha Minnow has noted, there can never be a universal definition of wise. Second, I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.

“Wise” is not the only relative term here. So is competence..

Racism in the Age of Obama

Neither the word race nor the word racism appear anywhere in the article, “Couple’s ‘buy black’ experiment becomes  a movement“:

“We’ve still got that ‘the white man’s water is colder’ mentality,” he said. “We can’t take us for granted. When we go to our establishments, it’s almost like we’re doing a favor. That ought to be a given for us.”

The Andersons remain encouraged by their momentum online and in the media. At the end of 2009, they hope to show $1 million in spending with black businesses among supporters across the country.

“The response has been so huge,” Maggie Anderson said. “We think so much can come out of this. We’re in movement-making mode now.”

Meanwhile, Catholicgauze tweets the lawsuit of a a white african-american student.

What is Barack Obama’s stance on “Black Value System”?

Beyond Parody:

ABC News: Obama’s Pastor: God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11
Sen. Barack Obama’s pastor says blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.”

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s south side, has a long history of what even Obama’s campaign aides concede is “inflammatory rhetoric,” including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own “terrorism.”

In a campaign appearance earlier this month, Sen. Obama said, “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” He said Rev. Wright “is like an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with,” telling a Jewish group that everyone has someone like that in their family.

Rev. Wright married Obama and his wife Michelle, baptized their two daughters and is credited by Obama for the title of his book, “The Audacity of Hope.”

An ABC News review of dozens of Rev. Wright’s sermons, offered for sale by the church, found repeated denunciations of the U.S. based on what he described as his reading of the Gospels and the treatment of black Americans.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people,” he said in a 2003 sermon. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

This is the “Black Value System” of Obama’s Church. I’m not sure when the last equivalently racist white President was in office, but my guess is 1921.

I’ve wondered before if Barack Obama is the Affirmative Action candidate… certainly his pastor would be.

Comment Upgrade: Patriotism and the Iraq War

My good friend Aaron wrote this for a post on 5th Generation War. However, the question is broad enough, and well thought out enough, to demand a thread of its own (emphasis mine)”

“I’m afraid I don’t find patriotism some quality to aspire to. It’s racism minus the pigmentary convenience. If anything, I’d say the Democratic Party is currently beholden to their electorate, who inarguably saw this election as a referendum on the war. I guess I’m curious why Herb and his type think what the Democrats are trying to do (the will of the people) is counter-intuitive to our country’s goals. If terrorism had stopped on the eve Iraq fell, I’d have to eat my words. Alas, it has not.”

Malaysia against the Mixed-Blooded

Malaysia is a country in the Gap, one of the regions that Tom Barnett describes as “largely disconnected from the global economy and the rule sets that define its stability” (that is, the country is Muslim and/or African). Gap countries tend to be pretty bad places — bad governments, crazy laws, and all the violent bigotry that characterizes the bottom fifth of the world, it’s perhaps not surprising that the racist Malaysian government has decided to free her citiznes from the like of Mark-Paul Gosselaar

and Sara Brinsfield

Both Sara and Mark-Paul are “pan-asian,” the current term for miscegenated East-, Southeast- or South- Asian, often with Caucasian ancestry thrown in. Panasians are particularly attractive for advertisers, because they are recognizably Far-Eastern without being particular to any one group.

In the words of the Asia Sentinel:

Beauty now has joined that parade, particularly as a rising tide of mixed marriages, not only in Malaysia but across much of Asia, seems to be creating a new super race of beautiful women. Over the past couple of decades they have taken Asia’s modeling world by storm and changed the very definition of international beauty. They largely dominate magazine advertisements, fashion shows and catwalks from Singapore to Manila to Hong Kong. Some modeling agencies, like Elite Model Management of Hong Kong, have built their business on the faces of mixed-blood models.

But the racist and Gap Malaysian government is dedicated to putting a stop to this glorification of miscegenation:

The Malaysian modeling and advertising industries are in shock after the government announced it was reviving a ban on the multiracial Asian faces that dominate billboards and magazines.

Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin said yesterday that models with so-called “pan-Asian” features were not representative of Malaysian demographics.

“Using pan-Asian faces means downgrading local faces,” he said. “We have to give priority to models with local looks.”

Pan-Asians are popular in ethnically diverse Malaysia, where advertisers tend to use their neutral features to avoid alienating any customers. A prime example is model and actress Maya Karim, 27, who is of Malay-Chinese-German parentage and is the latest poster girl for L’Oreal Malaysia.

A ban on pan-Asian faces is already in force at two government-owned television stations that cater mainly for majority Malays, who form 60 per cent of the population.

The announcement on Sunday extended the ban to advertising carried by private television stations, the print media and billboards.

The minister said the ban would eventually cover all media, but it was unclear when it would take effect.

However, love triumphs over hate, and beauty triumphs over bias.

Joshua over at One Free Korea already has placed his bet on the eventual victor:

I, for one, welcome our new fembot overlords, and I’d like to remind them that as a trusted blogger, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

Pan-Asian Beauties: work with them now, or for them later.

Racism and Sexism at Duke University

With Mike Nifong‘s and Crystal Gail Mangum‘s attempted lynching of the Duke University students continuing to unravel, a mob of activist University professors accidentally becomes right. Ann Althouse, Durham in Wonderland, Instapundit, and La Shawn Barber are on the case.


Criminals

The Group of 88 faculty’s original letter began as follows:

Regardless of the results of the police investigation, what is apparent everyday now is the anger and fear of many students who know themselves to be objects of racism and sexism, who see illuminated in this moment’s extraordinary spotlight what they live with everyday. They know that it isn’t just Duke, it isn’t everybody, and it isn’t just individuals making this disaster.

But it is a disaster nonetheless

Indeed. While the Group of 88 was focused on joining the lynching party, their words are ironic now. They can be used to describe the racist and sexist attitude of the administration of Duke University and Durham County.


Victims

Dennis Mangan writes bluntly:

Anyone white and male would have to be a fool to attend Duke. There’s some sign, as outlined in the article, that the president of Duke is coming to realize his gigantic fuckup – a criminal fuckup. No one in his right mind should go there, nor should his parents send him.

The situation may not be quite bad, but it certainly isn’t good. Perhaps Durham is in the Gap, after all.
