Racist America

When I was a kid in Blythe (not the smart capital of the world) I had difficulty learning new concepts. Dad taught me that regardless of job, race, or religion, everybody wants to be relevant. I pondered that for a long while because I thought a relevant was a big gray animal with a long nose.

My wife and I spent four days watching the man perform, praying and hoping he would succeed. Millions upon millions of Americans joined us. On the last day we cheered, clapped, and woo-hooed as we sat in front of our TVs. I even cried a bit when he finally won. Out on the course, thousands of people who loved him shouted, “Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!”

Two days ago, on Sunday, September 23, Tiger Woods made the greatest comeback in sports history. Through exhausting rehab and superhuman dedication, he overcame four surgeries and years of pain to win the 2018 PGA Tour Championship.

Thankfully, not a single TV commentator ruined it by referencing the amount of melanin in Tiger’s skin. Tiger isn’t a great black golfer. He is a great golfer, period.

The vast, overwhelming majority of those millions of people cheering for Tiger were white. And they don’t give a rat’s asterisk what color his skin is.

Contrast the above with TV coverage of the 2016 Olympic games when the TV commentators couldn’t stop raving about a particular female athlete being the first black woman to win her event. I found it disgusting. The story wasn’t the color of her skin. The story was her hard work, determination and skill. When will media get it? Nobody cares about melanin except the “mainstream” media and their liberal comrades.

Making skin color the Olympic “story” insinuated that…

  1. the Olympics is racist … and/or
  2. the U.S. team is racist … and/or
  3. black women aren’t very good athletes

Demonstrably, none of the above is true. The lady deserved to be applauded and lauded for what she accomplished. Period. Not for the color of her skin.

Most Americans (of all hues) would really appreciate it if you media folks would just drop your agenda.

Colin Powell is an awesome leader, period

Denzel Washington is an awesome actor, period.

Michael Jordan is an awesome basketball player, period.

Oprah Winfrey is an awesome TV Host and philanthropist, period.

Benjamin Carson is an awesome surgeon and member of the President’s cabinet, period

Perhaps it’s reflective of the liberal media’s never-ending effort to create racial division in our country. Or, perhaps the problem is simply that some TV commentators lack talent, so they must fall back on race because that requires neither creativity nor intellect.

Oh, and one more thought: if you TV folks really feel compelled to add a modifier to someone’s accomplishment, howsabout… American? (As in, an awesome American Golfer / Actor / Leader, etc.)

Oh boy… here I go again, stepping on sacred toes. Now, after you take these three simple tests (immediately below) don’t you go getting mad at me. If you answer honestly and don’t like your answer… figure out who’s really to blame.

The National Racism Test:

  1. Did you not vote for Obama because of the color of his skin? If so… that is racist.
  2. Did you vote for Obama because of the color of his skin? If so… that is racist.

The National Sexist Test:

  1. If you would not vote for a candidate simply because the candidate is a woman… that is sexist.
  2. If you would vote for a candidate simply because the candidate is a woman… that is sexist.

The National Racism Test — Part 2:

Two of the organizations listed below are real. One is make-believe. Analyze and verbalize how you feel about these. And listen to yourself talk.

  • United Negro College Fund
  • White People’s College Fund
  • National Hispanic College fund

In closing… for my entire life I have been grateful that my mother and father raised me to be color-blind. I am pleased that, in our family, we have relatives, love ones, and friends of all colors and creeds. And, of course, I am the token Neanderthal.
