Ethics Cases Raise Racial Questions

by John Bresnahan & Jonathan Allen - August 1st, 2010 - Politico

There’s a “dual standard, one for most members and one for African-Americans,” said one member of the Congressional Black Caucus, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The member said it’s too easy for an outside group to damage someone’s reputation by filing a claim with OCE.

“This is stacked against you once an accusation is made,” the lawmaker added. “You’re guilty until proven otherwise.”

Guilty until proven otherwise? Of course that reality was ignored back when it was Newt Gingrich and a long list of Republicans who were being targeted by liberals and blacks for matters that seem trivial compared with the level of corruption indicated by the charges against the blacks who are now complaining.

The anonymous black quoted above ignores 60 years of legal victories by blacks that have created an arrogance in the black community. "We can't be racist, only whites can be racist." "We are getting even for 400 years of slavery and whites today are going to pay for that history, whether their ancestors participated or not." I also love the argument that "Just being white means you have an unfair advantage so you owe me." The same arrogance of entitlement permeates Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters, two long time leaders in the race grievance industry.

Politico, being a typical left wing extremist web site, sees this as blacks being targeted for their race. There is no willingness to concede even the possibility it is just. For others it is recognition that race baiting black leadership; breaks laws, hides bribes in their freezers, heads up tax committees to write laws for whites while arrogantly breaking those same laws, extorts millions from corporations under the threat of false allegations of racism and generally do not see themselves as part of America.

60 years of 'affirmative action', where judges have repeatedly ruled that the lack of evidence of actual racism or any racist action did not matter to their status under the law, created this new black arrogance. Blacks still were awarded payoffs just for being black even when whites did nothing wrong. "Some white somewhere did us wrong so you are all guilty." You cannot defend 60 years of special privilege and not expect the beneficiaries to learn the clear lesson. We can do anything we want, then scream racist, and get away with it.

White individuals in America are still afraid of being crushed by false allegations of racism, so the racist charge is hurled repeatedly when it has no justification. Yet blacks still get away with it. Why do you think that the Tea Parties, which have no racist agenda, are constantly maligned with this false allegation?

Now, we have a handful of multi-millionaire blacks, among the most powerful people in America, protected by their positions as well as the special status of affirmative action, whining that they deserve special privilege. Their crimes should be excused because they are after all, still just blacks. Like the excuse that just because blacks commit most of the crimes in America, they should not be incarcerated on that basis. Unless the same percentage of whites are incarcerated, even if they committed no crimes, it is racism. So goes the argument. To them this is not about whether these blacks broke the law. The issue is a quota of results that excuses blacks from justice. It screams the message "You owe me." The growing refrain of a community that will never love America or obey its laws, no matter how well off they are.
