As we, once again, approach MLK Day here in the U.S. you expect to see headlines like this January 17th Tweet Header from the PEWResearch Center in Washington DC: “On MLK Day, racial equality found wanting.” Yet, in 2014, there is less racism in the U.S. than there ever was. You’d never realize that from reading the “main stream media” but I believe every American knows, in their heart, this is true!
Following is some common sense from Ben Kinchlow, published in World News Daily in an article titled: “Is there real racism in America?” Ben Kinchlow is a self described former “black revolutionary devotee of Malcolm X” who feels, in his words: “eminently qualified to throw some facts on the table, facts demonstrated by real life:”
FACT: Leftist media and race baiters rhetoric to the contrary, all whites are not racists and all blacks are not victims.
FACT: Generally speaking, all Americans are too busy earning a living, negotiating government red tape, avoiding being taxed into poverty, or rooting for their favorite (totally integrated) sports team to spend hours absorbed in racial drama.
FACT: Most whites are tired of being blamed for slavery and most blacks are not spending every waking hour looking for some white person to blame.”
That said, there are and always will be some Americans who ARE racist and who DO “spend hours absorbed in racial drama” and there are and always will be some blacks who feel that white people ARE to blame for everything wrong in their lives.
Another fact is: We, blacks and whites alike, live in a free country where we are free to think anything we want, even if it is total illusion. There are, of course, legal limits to actions based on our illusions.
In the beginning, Martin Luther King’s “Dream” was just wishful thinking and if he were aware of the United States in 2014 he would certainly be joyful about the progress we have made as a society and as individuals toward making his dream a reality.
Every day in modern America whites and blacks coexist peacefully, work side by side, share rides to and from work, sit down together for dinner and drinks after work, date and even fall in love and marry without worrying about the VERY FEW racists who will attempt to make their lives a living hell for offending their illusionary sensibilities.
Don’t forget that racial tensions sell newspapers and earn race baiters speakers fees. In those same years where we have made progress in racial harmony and equality, vestiges of racial inequality have gone from being a sad reality to becoming an industry. Those who profit from that industry by lying and/or exaggerating should not be believed but should be recognized as enemies of American society.
