Open letter to the black Americans rioting in Ferguson

Dear Ferguson rioters, demonstrators, and media hypocrites:

You might consider doing some hard thinking about what really caused the riots. Because it’s not the death of Michael Brown:  

The numbers released on Aug. 1 show the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for black Americans ages 16 and over was 11.4 percent (up from 10.7 percent in July), while the unemployment rate for whites 16 and over remained steady at 5.3 percent in August.

The picture is even grimmer for young blacks: In August, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for blacks of both sexes, 16-19 years old, was 34.9 percent, almost double the 18.3 percent unemployment rate for whites of both sexes in that 16-19 age group.

I guess if you’re chronically unemployed, just barely getting by with entitlements and welfare majestically bestowed upon you by the very people you idolize and vote for, you could get frustrated, angry, and bored and decide to go steal TVs, burn down Quik-Trips and throw tear gas.  The death of Michael Brown (which hasn’t even begun to be investigated) is as good an excuse as any.  Because nothing says “justice” like a riot that destroys your own community and shows America how much you desire respect and “equality”.

I didn’t see riots when this happened.  Or this.  Stop blaming whites, cops, “the man”, and start looking at the root of your problems – a liberal, Democratic machine that has used and abused you like a rented mule, ever since LBJ saw the opportunity.  You gave them votes because they promised “hope and change” and they, in turn, rewarded you with a dwindling supply of perks and entitlements that, in the end, cause you even more pain and frustration and the type of low esteem that makes you take to the streets and act like idiots.  And makes your idols rich and famous.

And no more crap about racial violence, ok?  Blacks kill other blacks every day at an insane rate, but you don’t riot about that, do you?

You are your own worse enemy.  It’s not whites, Asians, Hispanics, or any other “race” that keeps you unemployed and hopeless.

It’s the liberal Democrats – you have traded your integrity, your potential, and the hope for a prosperous future for the easy perks promised to you, but never quite delivered.

Stop voting for the party that promotes policies that KEEP you unemployed and pissed off.  Instead of blaming white people for all your woes, look to your heroes and leaders who get rich off of your misery and anger.  Look to the your savior in the White House, who, let’s be honest, cares more about golf and vacations than the real issues that keep you miserable and full of misplaced rage.

Stop supporting the party that blew our borders wide open and champions amnesty.  Because when millions of foreign invaders start taking the few jobs available and are drawing from the same shrinking pool of welfare and entitlements you do, your problems will go from bad to very very bad.

Stop aborting your babies.

Start supporting conservative values and policies that will LIFT you up rather than beat you down to the point you are burning and rioting.

Stop following radical and violent Marxists that advocate non-stop violence and mayhem.

Don’t use a young black man’s death as yet another excuse to go off the rails. That is a tragic event, but no more tragic than this.

Look to yourselves.  It’s not the color of your skin.  It’s the content of your character.

    Well, this pretty much defines the character (or rather, the lack thereof) of that group.

    I won’t be surprised when whites say “enough” and strike back. That will be a bloody and sad day for America.


    • Smorkingapple says:

      Because whites never struck in the first place?

      Oh yeah, slavery? Segregation? Redlining? Nothing to sweat, no long term impact to society.

      You guys just hate looking at your own roles here huh?

      • Catherine Wilkinson says:

        No, we just hate looking at rioting that has nothing to do with “slavery” and “segregation”. Remember….we have a black President, black Attorney General, and several prominent black leaders in both parties. We are way past “slavery”. And well into intentional victim hood. Anybody who thinks rioting and looting in response to a tragic incident that has yet to be thoroughly investigated is an appropriate action continues to view everything through a prism of race. And that’s racist.

        • Smorkingapple says:

          B/c Tea Party was properly investigated?

          So Obama’s election meant racism is over, and the residual effects of slavery, segregation and redlining were washed away? All the sins of America gone?

          You guys crippled black people, stopped hitting them with baseball bats a little while ago, and now look at them like “why are you walking with a limp, we stopped hitting you with bats years ago?”

          Are you serious here?

          For record, I wish they did this nonviolently. But I also understand the deep anger that led to it. Of course you don’t. But take 9/11 and imagine if it happened month after month and you felt powerless to stop it. Remember your outrage? Remember how good you felt when you saw those bombs drop on anything Arab, even if not related?

          Yeah, those are the same feelings these folks have.

      • jo says:

        Lol, like how Africans sold their own people into slavery? How blacks owned black slaves? How Africans owned white slaves? The truth has a very bitter sting doesn’t it? You self-centered hypocrites.

  • Lucy says:

    Very well said, Catherine.

    Can you guys ever be original and stop parroting talking points from right wing radio that have been blown to smithereens time and time again? I mean come up with some new points we can demolish. Make it fun at least.

    When you criticize rioting, always remember this country started BECAUSE OF A RIOT. Sam Adams? The “patriot”? He led those riots. Those riots destroyed their “own community”. Oh, and guess what they also did? They tarred and feathered FELLOW AMERICANS who were loyal to the Brits.

    Today we’d call them terrorists and anarchists. Their action led to Boston Massacre which led to revolution, and rest his history.

    You guys are the 2014 version of the British. Same thing you say about blacks, Brits said about Americans rioting. You can’t defend one riot as being justified because it was against tyranny, then condemn this act against tyranny. You can’t praise Clive Bundy and his merry band of militia members who refused Federal orders, but tell blacks they can’t also buck authority. You can’t say Obamacare is an example of his tyranny, say we need guns to protect ourselves against government tyranny, then just ignore this explicit act of tyranny. Well of course you can, you’re conservatives, you speak out of both sides of your mouth all the time.

    The black on black crime “epidemic” is a function of proximity. Of course blacks are gonna kill more blacks than whites. They live closer to each other! We also have an “epidemic” of white on white crime, hispanic on hispanic crime, asian on asian too. What’s next, we have an epidemic of Cuban on Cuban crime in Cuba?

    You folks just love ignoring how America has screwed blacks over in many ways. You’ve isolated them using redlining in neighborhoods with bad housing, bad schools, bad businesses, bad heatlth care. Affirmative Action? Demonized. Any other program to assist folks in getting out of poverty? Gutted. Prisons have been privatized and now we need to fill them by sending people to jail for the smallest infractions. Cops now have orders to harass blacks left and right to the point where they hate the cops and won’t cooperate or even share information on the crimes that really matter. Worst part? Even if you grew up in a nice setting, the color of your skin now lumps you with people in the ghettos so everyone assumes you’re a thug.

    Then you have the testicles to say “it’s the content of your character?” Pull yourself up by your bootstraps? After all of the above? You know why they abort so many babies? Ever think they don’t want to bring a child into this world to face the above? You guys want to pretend the US does not have a history of routinely disfavoring, beating and murdering black people by the authorities assigned to protect them!

    And here’s why being killed by a cop is more tragic than being killed by a fellow citizen. Your fellow citizen has no responsibility to protect you. He is not paid by society, he does not pretend to treat everyone equal. He does not come with the stamp of government. Cops DO.

    This is the tyranny you folks have been worried about but since it happens to “those people” you turn a blind eye. Shame on all of you.

    Smorkingapple probably doesn’t realize, but he/she has just completely made the point of the video ranter. 🙂

  • Jodi says:

    Spot on, Catherine.

    BTW, someone needs a history lesson. *cough Smorkingapple*

  • Johnny says:

    Sorry Smork, you’re just wrong. You can treat it like a game and stoke hatred all you want, but you know down inside where even you are human that harming innocent others is wrong, period. Doesn’t matter how you put lipstick on it. Otherwise you’re no better than the worst of those you hate. And you ARE better than that. You know it, I know it. Now act it. Put on the man pants and be one.
