Oh the hypocrisy! Of racist double standards and black exclusiveness.


Here we go again...

"Racist" fliers left on cars at Billings multicultural event

Billings residents are angry after recruitment materials for a white-supremacist group were distributed last weekend at a fundraiser for multicultural events.

Fliers for the The Creativity Movement were placed on the windshields of vehicles parked at the South Park Senior Center during the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Unity Dinner on Saturday night.

The fliers urged people to join the group as a way to preserve the “white race.” A telephone number printed on the flyer was out of Bloomington, Ill.

“This is not what the city of Billings should be about,” said Carol Mick, a member of the Black Heritage Foundation and Not in Our Town, groups that sponsor the Unity Dinner.

The gathering raises money to support local events marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month, as well as other multicultural celebrations. About 80 to 100 people were there Saturday night, Mick said.

“It’s important for the greater Billings area to know what’s going on,” she said. “If we don’t do something now, we’re going to have another incident.”

“It’s just so disheartening to think people are filled with such prejudice,” said Vonnie Anderson, another Unity Dinner attendee. “It made me sad to think my hometown is like this.”

It is common for white-supremacist groups to circulate literature on or near Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which fell on Monday, said Travis McAdam, executive director of the Montana Human Rights Network.

The Rev. Melvin Terry, president of the Black Heritage Foundation of Billings, saw three white men in their 20s distributing the fliers on Saturday night. One of the men snapped photographs of Terry as he and the others drove off in a white passenger car.

“They hollered out as they were taking off, ‘What’s wrong with white heritage?’ ” Terry said.


Yeah exactly. What is wrong with white heritage? So they can hold an event that is in direct honor and celebration of their race, but if someone starts passing out fliers about honoring a different race, only then is it racist. The hypocrisy is just stunning to me. Apparently you only have to be white to be a racist.

The Black Heritage Foundation. Think about it. What is its purpose? To glorify and recognize nothing but, exclusively, the black race. Period. And that isn't racist? But if a white person wants to recognize their race apart from all others, then we have a KKK racist on our hands. Give me a break.

It all goes along with the racial double standard in America. You've heard me say it before. What if we had White Entertainment Television, The National Association for the Advancement of White People, The United Caucasian College Fund, White History Month, the Traditional White Caucus, The National Suburban League, the White Heritage Foundation, and the Association for the Study of White-American Life and History?

Might as well pack your bags and head to racist island. Hey, I'll see you there!

Now let's have a bit of fun here. Bet you didn't know about some of these groups...

NABS- National Association of Black Scuba Divers
NAARVA- National African-American RV'ers Association
TBAAL- The Black Academy of Arts and Letters
IAAAM- International Association of African American Music
BBRM- Black Biomedical Research Movement
BNAA- Black Native American Association
NBCDI- National Black Child Development Institute
NCNW- National Council of Negro Women
NABJ- National Association of Black Journalists
NSBE- National Society of Black Engineers
OBAP- Organization of Black Airline Pilots
OBD- Organization of Black Designers
BGSA- Black Graduate Students Association
BCA- Black Culinarian Alliance
NABCJ- National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice
NABA- National Association of Black Accountants
NABHOOD- National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators and Developers

I seriously could not make this garbage up. We can learn a couple different things from this list.

1) Liberal blacks love using silly acronyms. I particularly liked the 'hood' at the end. Catchy. I like the subtle play on words/pun. Whatever you might call it.
and
2) Literally any occupation or lifestyle is subject to being the core foundation of a black empowerment group under the guise of "civil rights". What's next? The National Black Paper Plate Recycler's Association?

Some of those are downright funny. NAARVA? Scuba divers? But yeah, create the National Association of White Caucasians and you've got the KKK!

Hack,

Okay, that settles it. You are hereby nominated as Director of White Bloggers of America Who Hate When Minorities Get Special Treatment Because They Are Simply Minorities. Long title, but it has great benefits and a killer 401K.

I hear everything you are saying, Hack. Seriously. What is wrong with white heritage? It's as though when in public I cannot refer to myself as "white" because if someone hears it they will assume I'm talking about supremacy or some other such jackassery.

sigh...sometimes I wish my ancestors would have stayed in Europe. America is becoming too hard to live in these days.
