A Brief For Whitey

by Patrick J. Buchanan - March 21st, 2008 -

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Barack Obama is a racist, just like his long term mentors Reverend Wright and Louis Farrakhan. It did not get a lot of notice when he gave it, but Pat Buchanan was one of the few who quoted accurately from Obama's famous dissertation on race, during which he blamed everything on "whitey". That not the way you remember it? Well that is because the paraphrasing that you read in the media was Obama cleaned up, selectively quoted and the press spent all its energy in bragging about how post racial the black racist Obama was. That version was mostly lies.

Buchanan tries here to correct a few of the lies that Obama spreads in his standard denunciation of whites, but even he misses a few of the lies. Like the lie that America is responsible for 350 years of slavery. In truth, slavery was ended only 100 years after America was created. It was not legal in over half the states at the time our Constition was ratified and stayed illegal until ended. Only 5% of the slaves brought to the new world were brought to the few states that allowed slavery. Slavery was overwhelmingly concentrated (95%) in Spanish and Portugese colonies, not English colonies. How can America alone be accountable for something that most of the states never tolerated? Did the term "free states" in our history books not ever register with Obama? Is there no credit for the abolitionist movement and the 500,000 white American soldiers that died to free the slaves?

This article is now making the rounds as an email, because of the Gates-Crowley run-in that caused Barack Obama to smear all cops as "acting stupidly". I don't usually agree with much that Pat Buchanan writes, but this article is a lot closer to the truth about Obama than the lies the media are spinning. It is time we stopped pretending that Obama is not a racist.
