Opinion| ICYMI| I am willing to bet my house that 99.9% of you reading this agree that America needs to continue to strive for equality of opportunity, that race should not come into play when making decisions, and that the idea that one race should be made, or is inherently, superior to another is absurd.
I think the majority of Americans, definitely all of my friends on the ‘right’ side of the political isle, and most if not all of my friends on the ‘left’ side of the isle, also agree with this idea.
However, there seems to be a very vocal (and disproportionately focused on by the media) minority of people, who are not striving for racial equality, but rather for racial superiority.
Let’s be honest, we know there are some people on claim to be on the ‘right wing’ who think that Europeans are superior (something disavow and in no way endorse … which is pretty easy for me seeing as I come from a mixed family and am more Ashkenazi Jew than anything) and there are some on the left who seem to want to ‘give extra rights’ to minorities, all based on the amount of melanin in their skin.
They like to say that it is about ‘slavery’ however, I never owned a slave, nor did my father, or my grandfather …. or anyone in my family, and I do not know a single American who is a slave, or who’s father was, or grandfather …etc.
Those in academia who are trying to Balkanize America through this constant narrative that all white people are inherently evil and ‘privileged’ and that all minorities and blacks specifically are somehow not able to achieve greatness in this nation without some government hand, are the ones pushing the racist narrative, IMHO.
Telling someone that they can not hack it in this world because of their skin color or economic class, is, by definition, racist.
Are some people born into money, of course. Are some people born into poverty, yes.
However, I think Morgan Freeman explained it best:
Now a UGA Teacher Assistant and graduate student is in the news for making some inflammatory statements about race. Statements which he bizarrely can not seem to understand why they are so controversial ….
‘A University of Georgia graduate student is getting criticism for comments he wrote on Facebook.
The man at the center of the controversy is Irami Osei-Frampong — a philosophy graduate student employed by the university as a teacher’s assistant.
He speaks frequently about race and equality, but some critics believe he crossed the line when he made a post online that stated, “Some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole.“
Another social media post said: “Fighting white people is a skill.”‘
University leaders said they are consulting with the attorney general on what actions they can take, but Osei-Frampong said he’s standing firm and not backing down.
The University has been vigorously exploring all available legal options. Racism has no place on our campus.
Note: On Twitter his name is spelled Irami Osei-Frimpong.
Here is a video clip of Osei-Frimpong defending his comments and trying to gaslight the public into thinking they are crazy for thinking it is not ok to suggest that ‘some white people may have to die’ in order to for some black communities to be made whole:
Just like with any comment, we should flip it around on it’s ear and look at the reverse, for if the reverse is outrageous, it is more than likely that the original statement is too…
The fact that I won’t even dare type the inverse of the man’s statement should tell you all that you need to know. It’s time we start listening to the voices of reason, the people preaching unity and EQUALITY, and start tuning out those who seek to divide us with something as arbitrary as the amount of melanin in our skin.
But hey, I’m just some guy pounding the keys on the internet, what the hell do I know anyway…
