Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream

To read and order a copy of Black Skin Privilege, click here.

From Benghazi to Obamacare and a staggering array of things in between, President Obama appears invulnerable when it comes to the potential disasters that have marked his presidency. That the vast majority of those in the media share his left-wing politics partially explains this—but only partially.

For the full story behind the Teflon nature of Obama’s administration, it is to David Horowitz and John Perazzo that we must turn. And once we do, there can no longer remain any doubt that it is the President’s share of melanin that accounts for his seeming impenetrability to the sort of scrutiny and criticism to which a white president, regardless of party affiliation, would have been subjected.

But it isn’t principally upon Obama that Horowitz and Perazzo set their sights. In 35 short pages, their Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream (BSP) enlists every syllable into the service of proving its thesis: contemporary American (and other Western) blacks are simply held to a vastly lower standard than whites.

The phrase “black skin privilege” is a play upon “white skin privilege,” a standard leftist buzzword that has long since functioned as the explanatory key among academics for accounting for the world’s evils, “for everything that was racially wrong in America beginning with its constitutional founding.”

Horowitz and Perazzo expose this for the drivel that it is while proving that if there is any “skin” that is privileged in today’s America, it is black, not white. The authors are blunt: “In fact, for decades, at the hands of progressives white males have been the prime villains in the nation’s classrooms, and the principal targets of disapprobation and presumptive guilt in the general political culture as well.”

The authors of this powerful little pamphlet remind us of the swiftness with which the media rushed to convict “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black 17 year-old Trayvon Martin, as well as the white Duke University lacrosse players who were bogusly charged by a black stripper with rape. They also revisit the deafening silence with which these same media figures met the rapturous eruptions of blacks nationwide when O.J. Simpson was acquitted of double homicide.

Yet these are far from the only exhibits that Horowitz and Perazzo submit to substantiate the ubiquity of black skin privilege. Demolishing one sacred Politically Correct idol after the other, the authors take down names and unveil facts that are as ugly as they are suppressed.

The degree to which American life is soaked in black skin privilege can be seen not just in the fact that Americans have now twice elected a black man to the presidency who is not only singularly unaccomplished professionally, but, “with an unrepentant terrorist [Bill Ayers] and a racial bigot [Jeremiah Wright] as his close collaborators,” gravely challenged ethically. That ostensibly Christian clerics and some of the most reckless race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton—high priests of what I have called the “Racism Industrial Complex”—can continue to command exorbitant fortunes and lofty praise by politicians and the media alike confirms this as well.

Horowitz and Perazzo even show that black skin privilege transcends continents. Alluding to South Africa’s Bishop Demond Tutu, they write: “What white spiritual leader could support the torture-murders of South African blacks, compare Israel to Nazi Germany, and still be regarded as a moral icon? A black cleric like Bishop Desmond Tutu can.” (Indeed, as occasional Front Page Magazine contributor and former South African resident Ilana Mercer amply demonstrates in her, Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa, the new South Africa is black skin privilege on steroids.)

However, Horowitz and Perazzo don’t offer just a rogues list of well known names in their treatise on black skin privilege. By way of meticulously resourced statistics, they expose readers to the most inconvenient truths regarding the obscene levels of black-on-white crime—truths, that is, that will never spring from the lips of the professional “anti-racists” in the usual precincts of our culture. And they disclose what promises to be a revelation to many Americans: within just “the last few years” (after Obama’s inauguration), “there have been hundreds of black race riots in more than fifty American cities” in which roving mobs of blacks “have targeted whites for beatings, shootings, stabbings and rapes [.]”

There is much more to be reaped from BSP. Needless to say, those who benefit from black skin privilege will blast its authors as “racist” for just mentioning any of this. In contrast, people of good will, regardless of their color, will understand and appreciate that far from being animated by any racial animus, Horowitz and Perazzo are rather inspired by a vision of a common humanity and an American ideal rooted in the rule of law—not racial favoritism.

They deserve to be commended for their courage in daring to speak these truths.

And the rest of us, of all races, owe it to ourselves and our posterity to give them a hearing by reading Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream.

    A South African compared Israel to Nazis??? What a shock!!! You might want to brush up on your history. Israel was one of the few countries to keep diplomatic ties with the apartheid government. Both government collaborated on military matters as well as how to deal with occupied people (South Africa was occupying Namibia when Israel was doing the same in Lebanon. Many jews were members of the South African army. I believe even a chief rabbi in Israel was a chaplain in that same army.
    Israeli politicians openly speak of their wish to create Bantustans, a term coined in South Africa.
    You have no shame. But it's not your fault. You can't help it. It is in your nature and history has proved it time and again.

    • Rebecca

      You may want to brush up on your history as well. For anyone to compare Israel to Nazi's is offensive in the extreme. I don't like putting numbers on it because anyone who dies under repressive regimes is one too many. But there were millions of Jews who were tortured and murdered under Naziism. There were around 21000 blacks who died under Apartheid. Yes Israel did retain diplomatic relations along with other nations, but they never endorsed the Aparthied regime as you seem to be implying. Unless you feel that just by keeping relations open makes them complicit, however, I believe that view is simplistic. Israel was very vocal about their opposition to Apartheid and South Africa's treatment of her indigenous population.

      • Gee

        You're dealing with a racist troll. Facts are totally immaterial to morons like that. They invent 'facts' to suit their particular opinion.

      • WhateverMan

        You must be getting your history from the back of a menu at the local kosher Deli store. Jews and Israelis themselves compare Israel to the Nazis. I remember clearly when Bibi supporters would walk around with placards of Rabin dressed in SS uniform. When the Gaza evacuation occurred, settlers were calling the Sharon's government Nazis and Kapos. Since the issue seems numbers when it comes to South Africa,isn't Israel comparing every country it doesn't like to Nazis. As far as I know, Iran hasn't killed 6 million people.
        Your outrage seem selective.
        As far as Israel and SA relationship, it is not as benign and simplistic as you wish to portray it and Israel was, as it is now, on the wrong side of history.

        • Mary Sue

          Iran hasn't killed 6 million people? Well Israel sure as hell hasn't!

          OF COURSE they were calling the Sharon Government Capos! They betrayed the settlers and uprooted them because of the Leftist pressure to abandon Gaza, the Leftists believing that basically handing the whole of Gaza over to the Paleswinians would placate them somewhat (it didn't work). But this does not mean that it is legitimate to compare how the Israel Government is treating Palestinian Terrorists with how Hitler's Germany treated the Jews!

          • WhateverMan

            You might want to reread your post. Even you will acknowledge it is contradictory and doesn't make sense.

          • AnOrdinaryMan

            Sharon's(Israel's PM) government evicted the 9000 Jewish residents of Gaza; or have you forgotten that? So, Mr. MoralEquivlance, what's contradictory about Mary Sue's post?

          • WhateverMan

            I am confused: so that means it is okay for those settlers calling the israeli soldiers evicting them nazis? But if a non-Jew says it, i.e. a palestinian, it is offensive?

          • reader

            You are confused on many levels. Particularly, kapos aren't Nazis. Kapos are collaborators. Get it?

          • WhateverMan

            Read again, Monsieur Jacques Hass. I said Nazis and Kapos (who are Jewish collaborators of Nazis.)

          • reader

            It is offensive for the muslim arabs – who are the real nazis – and their cheerleaders like you – who are the nazi sympathizers – to call Israelis nazis, yes. Get it now?

          • WhateverMan

            German believed they were the chosen people, just like the jews. They believed in vital space, just like the jews.They call it Eretz Israel. And they believe God is a real estate agent, just like the jews.

          • reader

            You believe in KGB talking points, in addition to being an ignorant idiot.

          • AnOrdinaryMan

            To be evicted from one's home by one's own government; particularly by a government that had pledged protection, is quite traumatic; also since their homes were turned over to people who wanted their destruction. It was quite a betrayal, and to make matters worse, Israel's giving up Gaza didn't placate the Palestinians one bit; quite the contrary, it made Hamas ever more bloodthirsty. So, yes, it was understandable(but not OK) that many of Gaza's Jews called their IDF evictors capos. However, the IDF didn't betray Gaza's Palestinians, so no, its not understandable that THEY would call IDF troops capos.

          • Mary Sue

            I didn't contradict anything. You're the one that wants to pretend that Israel is some monolithic thing that is never, ever occasionally run by Leftist idiots.

          • WhateverMan

            Sharon, the butcher of Sabra and Shatilla, was a leftist…Mary Sue, you silly cow…

          • Mary Sue

            uh-huh, and whom did he butcher?

          • WhateverMan

            The answer is in my comments, cow.

          • Mary Sue

            ……what I was asking was if he butchered TERRORISTS? "Sabra" and "Shatilla" doesn't convey that information at all.

        • Rebecca

          The first part of your post is completely irrelevant and indicates poor reading comprehension as I clearly state that for anyone to compare Israel to Nazi's is offensive. I also say anyone who dies under repressive regimes is one too many and yes, Iran is a repressive regime unlike the state of Israel. But you clearly agree with the notion that Israel "is" like the Nazi's and in order to do that, you have to have no understanding of governmental systems. You are the one who has selective outrage. The only one who has malevolent intentions are the Palestinians and their supporters who have clearly stated what their views are as regards to Israel and the Jewish people.

          • WhateverMan

            The nazi regime cannot just be summarized to the Final Solution only. The Nazi were also about race laws, the superiority of their race/culture over others, Aryans being the Chosen People, their God-given right to invade and occupy what they consider being their Lebensraum, Eretz Deutschland. So let's not reduce everything to just the culmination of the even, but the whole process. Israel has race laws in place that favor Jews only. It is occupying another people, it does want to hold on to its lebensraum, and from recent news, it has a eugenicist program against a part of the population that it deems unfit for its society (ethiopian jews being sterilized)…But Israel hasn't committed a genocide…yet…because the world is watching.
            As far as the palestinians go, I don't expect you to understand the hate that an oppressed people has for its oppressor. A victim of a rape doesn't have to love the rapist.

          • reader

            What a twisted idiocy. The so-called palestinians are the nazis, who demand judenrein Middle East. In fact, Gaza is judenrein, Israel is full of arabs, particularly muslim arabs. Moreover, Koran preceded Mein Kampf by centuries, and Koran is definitely not less hateful than Mein Kampf is: http://www.amazon.com/Al-Yahud-Eternal-Islamic-En

          • Rebecca

            When I responded to your initial post I thought I was dealing with someone who was normal. Someone who was misguided perhaps but at least normal. Than I went on other story threads and realized that you are nothing more and nothing less than an anti semite. And a paranoid anti semite to boot. Your tunnel vision is breathtaking to the say the least. Israel is occupying no one nor does it have a eugenicist program nor are they waiting for the world to turn away so they can commit genocide. Frontpage is a conservative website that I enjoy coming onto and reading. But it is not the only place that I stop on the internet. I suggest you gather information from a variety of sources rather than on those that are attempting to further the goals of anti semitism and the destruction of Israel and her people.

          • Mary Sue

            The palestinians ARE the rapist. Got it?

          • WhateverMan

            Really? So the jews are are occupied by the Palestinians? Evicted everyday to expand settlements, jews have to go through palestinians checkpoints to visit loved ones?

          • Mary Sue

            Yes actually Jewish land IS occupied by the Palestinians.

          • intrcptr2

            The problem is of course that our troll is in fact a 1st World savage…

        • intrcptr2

          Yeah, those Israeli Jews condemning the Rabin government did so because he betrayed Jews, "Rev" Tutu, and you types, call ALL Israelis Nazis because you somehow think they are committing genocied against palis (Although I do fail to understand how it is genocide leads to population growth). And anyway, domestic political debate is far different than the hysterical and irrational racism spewed by antisemites like you.

          Funny thing about Jews, they're actually individuals who can choose to be good or evil; a number of SA Jews serving in the military says nothing about Israel, nor even does the presence of a Jewish chaplain in the ranks. And a good many nations maintained diplomatic relations with USA during those times, including Australia, the UK, Finland, Canada, Switzerland, and the USA. So I suppose, by your standards, all those nations are identical to Nazi Germany as well, yes? Of course, Mandela himself made peace with Israel's ties with the aparthied regime because he knew that "The Jews" played no part of apartheid.

          And you are right, Iran has not killed six million (Of course, their elected leader has sworn quite often to). But then neither has Israel…

          • Mary Sue

            I never said they were great. Things were bad even back then. But then they got WORSE. Mainly because the ANC gave legitimacy to blacks criminally attacking whites and not doing a god damn thing about it, because they considered the criminal gangs roaming around preying on others to be their "revenge" for apartheid.

            Are you aware that South Africans basically have to lock themselves in their bedrooms like a jail cell so nobody can get in there while they sleep?

            Listen buddy I don't care if a person is black or white. If they're a criminal, they're a criminal. End of story. Apartheid was a stupid thing to do, but letting Communists run the show did NOT improve matters.

          • WhateverMan

            You need to reread your post, woman:
            "I've heard South Africa's been a problem ever since the ANC took over."

            SINCE THE ANC TOOK OVER!!! Your words, not mine, you racist cow. Which means that South Africa was not a problem when apartheid was the law of the land, according to you.
            Take responsibility for your words and assume them. Goddamn!

          • Mary Sue

            It's been a WORSE problem. Say what you want about the Apartheid Government, at least they enforced the rule of law. It wasn't fair, it wasn't good, but at least they put criminals in jail. The same can not be said for the ANC.

            This isn't about race, for me, this is about COMMUNISM. What part of that do you NOT understand?

          • WhateverMan

            Things were safe only for whites, with whom you clearly identify for racist reason, during apartheid. It was not a good to to be black back then. But you are now chagrined with the fact that everyone shares them same risk and not just black. You are so dumb, you don't realize how disgustingly racist you sound…

          • Drakken

            Your overuse and abuse of the race card makes it meaningless, so get bent leftard.

            So it's better that EVERYONE be victims of crime? Just because there were some racist idiots before that thought they were keeping themselves safe? Boy you are effed in the head there man.

            I don't like criminal predations, period. It don't matter if it's black or white. Prejudice angers me because it only makes it worse. Sometimes people do things in order to feel safe.

            What I'm chagrined about is the TOTAL breakdown in the rule of law in South Africa and the criminals, be they black OR white, encouraged to continue being violent criminals because it serves a purpose to the Communists who are in charge.

        • intrcptr2

          I've been told by a South African that one of the reasons for apartheid was to keep the black tribes separated from one another. Dismantling it has simply removed the barriers that kept them from acting just like other post-colonials throughout Africa, ie Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria.

    I knew that blacks are the culturally dominant race in America when I observed repeated instances of black people in court summoning their lawyers by snapping their fingers as to say, "Come here, boy." It's happened to me more than once.

    There are other phenomena pointing to a clear allocation of privilege for those of black skin. The ignoring of obvious and simple obligations as expressed by the lady who said "Obama's gonna pay my mortgage."

    I always get a kick out of how extensively blacks define people by the color of their skin. I would have thought this would be something blacks would like to downplay. Obviously I'm wrong. Racialism seems to be very big among black people. "My grandmother was a typical white person." So what's the type?

    Jews are white so are given no special privilege or special protection by the Left that gives blacks the right to do whatever they choose. While hating the white Jew is permissible and even necessary for the Left’s agenda in America today.

    I’m not sure but I think I’m now running into Anti-Semitism because my married name is Jewish, although I’m not sure if its Anti-Semitism, or some other crap, because I’m not Jewish and am unfamiliar with the phenomenon of Anti-Semitism. Anyway it is not politically incorrect to be anti-Semitic so I have little recourse or experience in the matter and unless they are after my head, or want to boil me in oil, the bigot can go straight to where ever bigots go with my blessing.

    Bigots have the right to hate me for whatever reason or no reason at all, but they don’t have a right to act on it. Only if I were black would hating me be intolerable to a society run by the Left. Of course I could go back to my French maiden name even though I’m not French either, but I would find that intolerable even if society doesn’t. Because I have the right to be whoever I am without getting grief for it even if I am not that person at all but really somebody else.

    My French ancestors, who gave me a French maiden name, were Huguenot’s who supplied the Continental army with soldiers and grain. In fact, my Huguenot ancestor lost five sons in the Revolutionary War (maybe they couldn’t shoot straight and got caught in the rifle fire of those who could) and had a plantation in Virginia along with the founders of the country. Since the Huguenots had been Protestants in Catholic France they were among the Baptists who persuaded Jefferson to include freedom of Religion in the Constitution.

    Therefore, I have the Constitutional right to worship God under whatever name I happen to have. Because, unlike Allah, whose adherents call other people the descendents of apes and pigs, the Judeo-Christian God, the one who guarantees our freedom, is love and I love love even when my fellow Christians call me a frog or worse. Although it is hard to be both a bigot and a Christian at the same time, there is the Leftist so-called Christian hypocrites who manage it since the Left has nothing but hypocrites in their ranks.

    In the meanwhile how far we’ve come from our founders vision of equality where, because they neglected to include the slaves, the former slaves are now being made into the oppressors.

      • Westetn Spirit

        Yes my own ancestor was a leader. He was a minister who led his flock to be the first settlers of quite a few States.

        As Baptists they were running into opposition by the Anglicans and rather than fight they fled into the interior of the country because they could.

        They were welcomed where ever the went, except by the French and Indians of course. Because, for the most part, they were professional people who had high moral standards. Going further back into history an ancestor was also an officer in Napoleons army. So, as leaders, they weren't always on the side of the angels. Unless you consider Napoleon an angel that is.

      Anyway the Jews are white to me and my point stands the Jews get no special dispensation or compensation from society because of their “race”. While Blacks get both. And because they do, they are fast becoming the oppressors because, like Holy Cows, they can beat up whites and wreck all around havoc on society, like that lunatic in California did, with impunity. If he hadn’t committed suicide the Left would have given him a medal. As it is they are deifying him.

      Many of us undergo prejudice of one kind or another but we don't go on a rampage and kill innocent people because we get passed over for promotion or otherwise suffer because of it.

      I would have to agree with your comment. My father grew up white and dirt poor of European immigrant parents who barely survived the Great Depression in Harlem, NYC. He attended public school with many black students and there was little academic difference between races. Many of his classmates, like him, were drafted into WW2 and later attended college and graduate school courtesy of the GI bill. These people were ambitious and achievement -oriented, out of necessity. They had no one to fall back on. Two generations later the government was suddenly telling bright young black people that they were not as intelligent or able as their white counterparts and required assistance through affirmative action to keep up. What incredible prejudice and discrimination. Tell a person that they are inferior by dint of a factor they cannot control and watch it become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

    • tagalog

      The worst part of that is not so much the blacks taking advantage of that; they'd be foolish not to. The worst thing is how many intellectual contortions many of our brainiest white people go through trying to justify it as some sort of democratic initiative for greater equality and liberty, instead of the racial fascism it really is.

  • trickyblain

    Drive through the wealthiest section of a major city, followed by venturing into the poorest, then come back and tell us that blacks are the "privileged" skin color.

      They are given preferential treatment through every government and government assisted program, including college admission and financial aid. The disincentive comes from single parent families, drug and alcohol abuse, childhood pregnancy, welfare, gang involvement, etc. Any group of people with any skin color, nationality or religion will suffer horribly if they are forced to contend with these conditions. Also, I can tell you as someone who grew up in poverty (I left home as a teenager out of necessity) the friends who will stand by you when your circumstances are similar will sabotage you if you try to break out of poverty. It's not as if it's easy, emotionally, socially or financially, to leave the world you know for a more upwardly mobile one where you don't fit in. So, there are a lot of social factors here.

      Since the end of the Civil War, blacks have been vocal about how the United States owes them something for slavery. The fact that they haven't received any clear-cut reparations (or something similar) feeds an ongoing resentment for some black people.

      Interesting observation. Did you also notice that those urban areas are exclusively run by Democrats, who exclusively support affirmative action, i.e., privileges based on skin color? Perhaps, this approach just does not work. Has it ever occurred to you?

  • BLJ

    Another black on white atrocity was the savage murders of those young white people in Wichita that the MSM never seemed to report on. Blacks have no one to blame but themselves for any problems they face. Obama, Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan and the white libs could care less about them.

    • Guest

      I get what you're saying, but I don't see any point in blame – how does blame help anyone improve? People are in pain and they lash out by blaming others. I wish instead of pointing fingers (as has become the American pastime) people would just ask themselves, what is my problem and how do I solve it? How do I make more money to improve my life? How do I avoid drama, crime and pain and move toward happiness? The answer is self-efficacy, self-reliance and self-respect. Something doesn't work in your life? Try something else and keep going until you get t right. Avoid reliance on the government at all cost as they are definitely NOT out to help you.

      • BLJ

        What you are saying is exactly what the black community needs to do. I am also not implying that all blacks should be grouped together. I know many who are hard working motivated people.

        The problem is the bigotry of low expectations has cast a long shadow over too many in the black community. The race baiters and worthless leaders like Obama just feed off this. The MSM is also a cohort as well.

      • fiddler

        "…the savage murders of those young white people in Wichita that the MSM never seemed to report on."

        Hold on now — he makes a VERY good point here. As Bernie Goldberg has pointed out in some of his books, the perpetrator of these things is a BIASED media who thinks that spiking certain "harmful" news is appropriate to exercising their First Amendment right. I feel that the minimizing of coverage of a tragic thing here is criminal, and basically devalues them as human beings. These are "inconvenient truths" which go against the popular narrative the the PC media loves to promote. I would pay to hear a take-no-prisoners opponent take apart Chris Matthews in a debate, for instance. Time to rip the wool of this stealthy wolf and expose the vitriol underneath.

    There are enough blacks in the United States to make sure they are at the top of the list on all privileges, the black caucus only exist to promote black issues and not the nations. Another reason the country is going down hill. Whites have been conditioned and programed to feel sorry for blacks and made to believe they owe them everything. This is not a fair country for white boys to grow up in and another reason it would be the right thing for a state like Texas to become a country. Otherwise whites growing up in this land will be forever indebted to to blacks and the more of them the more votes they have in the house to push for anything that benefits only blacks and screw the rest of us. every thing affirmative action does for blacks it holds others back . blacks will forever be trying to repay the devil white race back for slavery even though most of had nothing to do with any of it. and some black leaders make a good living promoting hate for Jews and the devil white race. the United States will never be fair for whites as it is, they have many black groups that specialize in only helping blacks and ensuring hatred for whitey man is carried on the the next generation of haters.

  • mekus milkdud

    The biggest fear for Democraps and blacks is that some states leave the union of states ande form a nation that is truly fair for everyone esp the taxpayers and workers . They know if that happen the states left would go under faster than they are now because there would only be black thug groups and welfare hoes left in the US of A and the states that left would not be there to pay their bills

      Au contraire, there's an undeniable temptation to let the government assistance-draining Red States secede and form their own little third world libertarian theocracy where they could produce…well, where they could maybe learn to start producing something.

      This would leave the educated, productive Blue States to continue innovating, growing, and problem-solving without the dead wood of the Red States.

    e: South Africa and weapons of mass destruction

    U.S. Intelligence believed that Israel participated in South African nuclear research projects and supplied advanced non-nuclear weapons technology to South Africa during the 1970s, while South Africa was developing its own atomic bombs.[23][24] According to David Albright, "Faced with sanctions, South Africa began to organize clandestine procurement networks in Europe and the United States, and it began a long, secret collaboration with Israel." He goes on to say "A common question is whether Israel provided South Africa with weapons design assistance, although available evidence argues against significant cooperation."[25]

    Chris McGreal has written that "Israel provided expertise and technology that was central to South Africa's development of its nuclear bombs".[12] In 2000, Dieter Gerhardt, Soviet spy and former commander in the South African Navy, stated that Israel agreed in 1974 to arm eight Jericho II missiles with "special warheads" for South Africa.[26]

    In 2010, The Guardian released South African government documents that it alleged revealed an Israeli offer to sell Apartheid South Africa nuclear weapons.[27][28] Israel categorically denied these allegations and said that the documents were minutes from a meeting which did not indicate any offer for a sale of nuclear weapons

        Silly cow…does Wayne Brady have to smack a biatch? Well South Africa was a racist regime that was occupying Namibia and segregating against its black citizens.

I have some suggestions where you can put that sarcasm of yours…

    Following his release from prison in 1990, Mandela said, "Almost every country in the world — except Israel" had invited him to visit.

    Israel's invitation came only in 1994, but then the peace process did not make a visit politic. However, he now decided to show a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation.

    "To the many people who have questioned why I came, I say: Israel worked very closely with the apartheid regime. I say: I've made peace with many men who slaughtered our people like animals. Israel cooperated with the apartheid regime, but it did not participate in any atrocities," he said.

    • Mary Sue

      ……because Mandela is a COMMUNIST?

        Like you said, he was a decent man who wanted racial equality in his country. In case yopropotdon't know…In fact, I am sure you don't know…in the 27 years in jail that he spent, he was offered freedom as long as he promised that he would abandon his fight against the racist regime. He refused. That is something racist people like you sympathize with the apartheid regime and call him a Communist will never understand.

(68% of U.S. Jewish voters) How many black race hustlers understand/support Israel? Not a one. Why don't you talk about Al Sharpton, and how the riot he instigated killed Yankel Rosenbaum? Sharpton didn't have anything to say about that. Hypocrite.

            Why would black understand/support Israel? Why would they identify with a state that oppress its own minority and occupies land that doesn't belong to it? Why would they support a state that discriminates and sterilizes its own black? Are you for real? If american jews supported King or Obama is because they live in the US and are citizens of that country. They believe that their interests her in the US come first.

THEY didn't have dual loyalty, and neither do I. By the way, Gen.

          White farmers in SA are being killed, often tortured to death even children by blacks. Terrible but true.
          Look up the conclusions of the truth and reconciliation commission and the more recent statistics that since the end of aprtheid there have been more deaths of blacks and whites than under apartheid.
          And no, I do not support apartheid , neither am I a racist as it is the most stupid discrimination possible as not one of us can help what colour we are born with. We should be judged by our characters and way of life and nobody deserves special treatment based on the colour of our skin.

  • Silverio Facundo

    For living in a racist country, blacks in the USA have done very well, thank you. The Black ("African-American" is a stupid, PC-compliant term that doesn't make black people better or worse) community has among them some of the most admired, better-paid, well-off athletes, entertainers and actors, not to mention a moron that got the country's top job just for being Black. There are scores of millionaire Black football and basketball players. The multi-millionaire Williams sisters are the top female tennis players in the US, always in good company with the multi-millionaire cheater Tiger Woods. The multi-millionaire Oprah is adored by millions, both black and white. The millionaires Will Smith , Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy or Wesley Snipes are worth (dollar-wise) much more than many of their white actor colleagues. Michael Jackson's fortune allowed him the most absurd extravagances, and several rap or hip-hop malcreants can hardly count the 7-figure bank accounts in their names. All these singers have a huge fan base, which does not make a distinction on their idol's skin's color.

    If say, one was to follow the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in both Los Angeles 1984 or Atlanta 1996, one could have sworn that America is a Black-majority country. From the flag-bearer to the Olympic-flame lightning to the anthem-singing, this was a no-white-need-to-apply affair. Not bad for a country where Blacks are so much discriminated against.

    Although granted there will always be animosity between different social groups, it cannot be said that it singles out Blacks. Many other minorities, like Jews, or majorities, like white Protestants, get their share of bashing by other groups. But bigoted bashers can get away with almost anything as long as their targets are Jews, Catholics, Lutherans or Martians. But lo-and-behold, express the same bigoted remark with the word "black" in it, and off you go to a downhill course on political correctness, with jail, fines, community services and perpetual self-disgrace.

    Those loosers that still insist that the USA is a racist country, like the obama first-couple, would do well to look into a mirror. It is likely that racism starts with them.
