Racist remarks make it impossible to talk seriously about real problems in minority communities

(My new American Thinker post)


During "the Bush-43" years, some in the left used to play the "Hitler card". 

It backfired because most people understand that there is a big difference between Hitler and a US president, especially one who started a war with bipartisan support.

More recently, some who hate the welfare state have argued that today's dependency on government is no better than being a slave at the plantation.

It backfired too because it makes no sense!  

The sad part is that all of these ignorant race remarks, from Mr Bundy to Mr Sterling, distract us from having a serious conversation about problems in the minority communities.

Unemployment is a terrible problem in the black community, as reported by economist Dean Baker:
"The drop in labor force participation was sharpest for African Americans, who saw a decline of 0.3 percentage points to 60.2 percent, the lowest rate since December of 1977. The rate for African American men fell 0.7 percentage points to 65.6 percent, the lowest on record. The decline in labor force participation was associated with a drop in the overall African American unemployment rate of 0.5 percentage points to 11.9, and a drop of 0.6 percentage points to 11.6 percent for African American men."
Add to this the "out of wedlock" birth rates, as reported last year:
"Nationwide, African-American women reported the highest rate of out-of-wedlock births, at 67.8 percent.
American Indian or Alaska Native women reported a 64 percent rate, while Hispanics reported 43 percent and non-Hispanic whites reported 26 percent.
Asian-Americans reported the lowest rate of out-of-wedlock births, at 11.3 percent."
We should be talking about these two problems in minority communities, as well as lousy public schools that Democrat politicians do not send their kids too.

Unfortunately, all these ignorant remarks by Mr Bundy and Mr Sterling will give "the race hustlers" a reason to appear on TV and justify their existence.

We should be having a serious conversation about unemployment, out of wedlock births and lousy inner city schools but we won't.

Check out "The Gosnell movie"

The Dr Gosnell movie is a horrific chapter in recent US history, as you can read in movie website:

"Dr. Kermit Gosnell is the most prolific serial killer in American History, but almost no one knows who he is. 

The Grand Jury investigating Kermit Gosnell's horrific crimes said this:
          This case is about a doctor who killed babies ... What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors .... Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.   (Report of the Grand Jury) "
We spoke with Phellim McAleer about the movie:
