Quite possibly the most racist article you will ever read

Every now and then you come across an article that folks just need to read. This one written by Michael Smith entitled, “Confessions of a Public Defender” and originally posted at American Renaissance on May 9, 2014 is one of those articles.

It is a profound and deeply disturbing piece, which we all need to comprehend, particularly as it has been 50 years since the Great Society initiatives of President Lyndon Baines Johnson were first implemented.

Smith articulates that which ails the black community — the real discussion we should be having on race, not that of victimhood and the further expansion of the welfare nanny-state.

He begins by saying, “I am a public defender in a large southern metropolitan area. Fewer than ten percent of the people in the area I serve are black but over 90 per cent of my clients are black. The remaining ten percent are mainly Hispanics but there are a few whites.”

“I have no explanation for why this is, but crime has racial patterns. Hispanics usually commit two kinds of crime: sexual assault on children and driving under the influence. Blacks commit many violent crimes but very few sex crimes. The handful of whites I see commit all kinds of crimes. In my many years as a public defender I have represented only three Asians, and one was half black.”

He presents his observations based on his personal experience with black defendants, and his words will no doubt inflame many:

My experience has also taught me that blacks are different by almost any measure to all other people. They cannot reason as well. They cannot communicate as well. They cannot control their impulses as well. They are a threat to all who cross their paths, black and non-black alike.

It will take you only 5 minutes to read this article — and I would bet you’ll read it again. Then ask yourself, is this something you hear Al Sharpton addressing? Or President Obama, Eric Holder, Jeh Johnson or Jesse Jackson?

I’m quite sure the progressive socialist left will criticize me for sharing this article – that’s just who they are – they hate the truth. But if there is a war to be fought, it is for the soul of the inner city and the black community. The facts and observations in this are not shocking to me. They are quite well known, but the manner in which the writer so eloquently presents them is quite commendable.

We cannot begin to “have a conversation about race” until we are willing to honestly address the facts.

As Smith says at the end, “I do know that it is wrong to deceive the public. Whatever solutions we seek should be based on the truth rather than what we would prefer was the truth.”

Fred OCliff seems to have trouble distinguishing between patterns, groups, statistics, and individuals, which makes him an actual racist, as opposed to the writer of the article and Allen West himself.

I think after a certain point–and I’ve heard this especially from inner city school teachers–where you make judgements about race because your years of experience entitles you to make valid judgments. I’m sure any experienced person doesn’t blame everybody in a group, but you get assaulted so many times and good luck trying to convince him he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

No, he’s basing this on actual experience; many of those in positions to actually analyze share his feelings precisely. He is very accurate in his honest assessment; there are definitely cultural differences, for whatever reason. And these things need to be addressed or our world will be forever violent, law enforcement merely a reactive symptom of the sick society.

Newt Gingrich once said that an army of social workers needs to be sent into the underclass ghettos. I don’t know if that would solve all these problems. Maybe it would make a dent. It’s a vicious cycle of a poverty of values.

An army of social workers would be good, if said workers were godly people with good morals and sense. As it is, the vast majority of social workers are extremely “Liberal”, and would only exacerbate the situation.

The term “racism” was invented by communists, and is used to destroy cultures and defuse (and render impotent) those with differing points-of-view on “racial” issues. That being said . . . True “racism” is desirable as it merely cements cultural and social bonds that are necessary for a society to function and flourish. True “racism” merely denotes commonality of purpose and advancement within each respective racial group… Blacks have the NAACP and Congressional Black Caucus, Hispanics have La Raza and Mecha, Jews have the $PLC, ACLU and ADL. These are all “racist” organizations that serve to promote the interests (and… Read more »

No other race than whites has colonized and subjugated people in practically every corner of the world. No other race than whites has broken apart ancient trading partnerships, created non-sensical political boundaries, and placed corrupt leaders into power for their own benefit. No other race than whites has siphoned natural resources from every other country to build their own wealth, then placed themselves under the delusion that their wealth was the result of some divine racial mandate.

Just as with radical Islam, the root cause of this problem is clearly CULTURE. A disproportionate number of black people revel in the gangsta-rap-thug culture. Most of the “artists” are black and most of the followers are black. A much smaller number of other races subscribe to that chit which is why they are represented at lower levels. Those that are so fortunate as to be led away from the culture of crime are just like everyone else… productive members of society. Those of us that condemn rather than “tolerate” the gangsta-rap thug culture are no more racist than those… Read more »

Let’s make a list of all the behaviors that are acceptable in our society and another list of those that are not. Then we can teach people what our society values and impose punishments for people that don’t want to follow the guidelines. Oh wait… we already have that.

Who decides the values? Some believe murder is wrong, but not adultery. Yet, both are in the 10 commandments. Muslims feel justified in raping women and children because the Quran allows it. Which list should we put it on? I would not agree with liberals making the list because they would include baby murder on the ok list. Liberals would balk if gay marriage were prohibited. Who decides?

I don’t agree that supposedly black folks don’t reason as well, I know plenty of black folks that reason perfectly well and the truth of the matter is that the vast majority of white folks don’t reason all that damn well either, but the point the author makes that blacks live in a culture of no expectations, no demands, and no shame is spot on – I think its very much a problem of culture, and as long as black culture encourages black people to deliberately try to be as ignorant and ghetto as possible nothing is going to get… Read more »

I didn’t interpret the author has having meant that black people in general are incapable of reason, but that the blacks whom he has defended don’t seem to be able to reason as well as those from other ethnicities. Keep in mind, he is referring to a subset of a subset – the criminal element. I also know many black people whose ability to reason is indistinguishable from any one else I know. I think the lesson to be taken away from this is that there is a cultural influence in much of the black community that may prevent the… Read more »

“racist article you will ever read” too bad stating truthful observations from years of experience has to be considered “racist.”

Mad Dog

I’d have to disagree that it’s racist. To me, racism is arbitrarily inserting race where it’s irrelevant or drawing unsubstantiated conclusions about race. (Jim is black. Jim is a thief. Therefore blacks are thieves.) This essay, as you point out, gives truthful observations about a systemic problem. I don’t see how that can be fairly called racist. But I see your point.

It is still often forgotten that in the 60s, the government gave a check to poor moms who had children but took it away if there was a husband or responsible male in the home. The government rewarded families that were one parent homes. Sometimes, the mom preferred to be single so as to have a consistent income and the males just went along wanting them to “have it better”. This one parent home culture has been replicated down to multiple generations. We are squeamish to look at statistics that seem mean to people but single parenting takes a herculean… Read more »

As a former Marine, I saw the planned transformation of men from all walks of life into obedient, organized, purposeful and prideful individuals through rigorous training and indoctrination. Many of these were black men from a negative background who had no real future. The U.S. Marine Corps gave them pride in themselves and their personal accomplishments as well as membership in an esteemed group of men. The rules and regulations were clear and well defined as were the various punishments for transgressions. There were many great role models who provided “tough love”, sound advice and detailed directives about succeeding in… Read more »

Regardless of public opinion, science – specifically, the science of “genetics” – rules – sorry. There is ZERO difference between “black” people and “white” people – physically. Got that? None. Well, other than the obvious skin pigmentation. We’re not talking about the differences between a giraffe & a turtle ….. we’re talking about the EXACT same species. Two arms, two legs – here’s a biggie! – a larynx (“voice box”), slight differences in assorted physical *features* due to genetics, mutations and evolution since the last ice age.

There are physical differences. Anthropologists will tell you that and to be honest any science class, especially Anatomy and Physiology. You can take the skeletal frame and determine most times what racial group they belong to as well as DNA. Although we can give blood and organs to each other, and we are all human, there are differences other than skin colour.

anarchyst

I wish you were right, but you are dead wrong…there are medicines that work better on whites, and others that work better on blacks. There are differences in bone structure, and yes, even mentally…this is why blacks dominate most sports; their body structure lends itself to such activities much better than whites. Whites excel academically at a much greater IQ level than blacks.
There are exceptions in every race…but…the truth is, that there ARE differences…

So is there also exactly zero racial difference in IQ?

go4it

Nope. Intelligence is “learned”. Your “I.Q.” is simply a contrived “yardstick” to measure how much you’ve learned, WHAT you’ve learned – and how well you’ve retained it. Nothing to do with “race” – unless we’re talking about, say, the Indianapolis 500. A child born in deepest, darkest Africa this very day – with the proper up-bringing – could fly the most technologically-advanced rocket ship to Mars!!!! For the “white” comparison, let’s avoid the conflict of theory and bump heads with the “science” of behavior and up-bringing. I can prove that not all is well – not only in the almost… Read more »

So do you have any statistics to show that there is no racial difference in IQ? Because if IQ is simply “learned”, and not inherited (i.e. genetic) then there should be an equal comparison, because everybody learns. A child going to a good school should have roughly the same IQ, regardless of race. Same for those attending bad schools, and this should be empirically, statistically provable, and not just through anecdotal evidence (such as the Jimmy Carter example above). Yet you know this is not true. The Bell Curve proves otherwise. Why is it that everyone can accept that there… Read more »

IQ testing is culturally biased. African kids walk at 9 months old doesn’t make white babies genetically inferior.

On this note, if all students who are racially, diverse as well as gender, religious, culturally etc all take the same classes, with the same teachers, then all take the same IQ test they are culturally biased?

LOL you have every reason to brag. And you are right. My point was the walking is a priority over reading to the kid in a tribal environment. That’s why they tend to walk earlier in general (of course every kid is different).

Rena
Guest

Could be then that they had to start learning earlier due to where they live but in the US what would it be… then we can’t compare tribal to urban? The indigenous people in the rain forest would be different than those in Africa and so on. Now compare the blacks with with Africans who still live in tribes.

Like I said they walked early because you taught them early. African cultures do the same things because they can’t drag the babies to the filed. Does not make white babies genetically inferior was my point. Thanks for empirical evidence and congrats.

Uncle Ruckus

This man’s experiences is just that…THIS MANS EXPERIENCES! Millions upon MILLIONS of black people are HARD WORKING people…just like WHITE FOLKS! You wouldn’t know that from reading Allen West blog. You’d come out believing that they only successful black people are conservatives

I agree with you. There are many, many successful black people in all walks of life and of all political persuasions. I even mentioned that in a comment above. I think that the man who wrote this article was referring to the class of black people who commit crimes in the area where he lives. I’ll even take it a step further and say that people of all cultures who have an entitlement mentality tend to exhibit many of these same behaviors. But I have noticed that some people in the black community do seem to have some cultural idiosyncrasies… Read more »
Rena

Thats not true. What I got from Col West article is that what this man experienced. I didnt draw conclusions that “all” blacks are not capable of reason because Col West or this guy wrote this story because I know hundreds of blacks now and over the course of my years have met thousands. This man based this conclusion on a group of people with whom he had experience with as criminals. He did not say “ALL” blacks are incapable of reason but that this group of blacks that he had experience with.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Read the comments below…it seems that most of them believe that this applies to the entire BLACK RACE….its sad to believe that white people feel this way about black people

Bonnie McCollett
Guest

Do you think if you keep shoving the words BLACK RACE in people’s faces it’s going to somehow make you special?

JOHN FLA
Guest

I don’t believe that’s the case. We never seem to hear about the hard working anybody. Over the years I’ve had many black friends, and known many whites that I wouldn’t give the time of day to. Seems to have more to due with respect and lack of respect. (I think that makes sense)

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

But by reading the articles that ALLEN WEST post and to read the comments….you never get anything POSITIVE about black people. Why all the negative all the time?

Rena
Guest

Again you are lumping all whites in one basket as did those who you are claiming are lumping all blacks in one basket…. And you are right, its sad to see some whites who still believe that it would include all blacks… but I have also seen several on here say that they disagree that “all” blacks are without reason… More agree that they disagree…but you never seem to take note of those do you?

walterc
Guest

I don’t think this public defender was telling us anything other than his observations. At least I didn’t detect anything like opinion or cause, only observation. Years of interacting int he same situation with people of various race with the common denominator of committing a crime. Nothing more, nothing less.

Rafael X
Guest

Nope it’s called an anecdotal evidence doesn’t hold water in critical thinking. Sample is too small to be considered scientific. He’s not the only public defender, maybe the white criminals can afford real lawyers. He wouldn’t get away with that crap in court that probably why he plea bargains most of the time. It’s hogwash, referring to his experience is an appeal to authority. Another logical fallacy. Inductive argument lacks deductive validity. That’s why.

Diggur
Guest

So you feel that there are no problems within the black community, or if problems do exist it is the fault of the white community? Is all evidence anecdotal if it is personal experience? If that is the case, then personal experiences and observations would not be admissible in court. I’m in a branch of law enforcement, and I have had similar experiences. Is my personal experience also anecdotal?

Rafael X
Guest

Yes all evidence is anecdotal if it’s personal experience. “Witness testimony is a common form of evidence in law, and law has mechanisms to test witness evidence for reliability or credibility. Legal processes for the taking and assessment of evidence are formalized. Some witness testimony may be described as anecdotal evidence, such as individual stories of harassment as part of a class action lawsuit. However, witness testimony can be tested and assessed for reliability.” You can actually deductively validate the argument in a courtroom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anecdotal_evidence

wag_dog_69
Guest

So crime statistics, which are not anecdotal, indicate that blacks commit crimes at much higher percentages than other racial groups. Does this mean that you don’t believe that either? Or are crime stats not to be believed because they are, while empirically sound, uncomfortable?

Diggur
Guest

Okay, so how do we judge this man as unreliable if we can’t determine if he is reliable? And you’re not answering my other questions.

Rafael X
Guest

He’s assumed unreliable if his reliability cannot be validated. Which falsifies the premise.

Diggur
Guest

So…how would you validate my reliability, and why are you still not answering my other questions?

Rafael X
Guest

Yes there are problems in the black community like there are problems in every community. The object of the debate in the relationship between the communities. Pointing to the problems in the black community is just a red herring. A diversion not to talk about the real issue.

Diggur
Guest

Okay, now we’re getting somewhere. What, exactly, is the real issue?

Rafael X
Guest

The real issue is black people in general, young black men in particular are dehumanized and not treated like individuals. That “lawyer” speaks of all his black clients as if it was the same person. He talks about his clients challenging him as any person facing hard time wont ask questions. Another issue is using those fake stories to change the subject of the conversation.

Diggur
Guest
So you’re saying that white people dehumanize black people? How are we doing that? The lawyer is frustrated because his clients are doing things that are not in their own best interests. Do you think that black people have any responsibility for the problems that are being faced by some of the black communities? Lack of education, children becoming parents, no responsibility being taken for children, high rate of crime, gang membership, etc. Is that all being caused by white people? And if the answer to that question is yes, then isn’t that stereotyping and dehumanizing white people?
Rafael X
Guest

Again with the diversions.

Diggur
Guest

That’s not an answer. I’m asking you questions. White people are confused as to what we’re doing to oppress, or as you put it “dehumanize”, black people. I’m asking you what we’re doing wrong.

Rafael X
Guest

What is done with this “article”. Some anonymous “lawyer” takes to the internet to complain about all his problems with black clients. No name no face no way to verify his story. But for some reason that has nothing to do with the color of my skin I’m supposed to take him and his story at face value? What am I six years old? Look inward your stereotypes and prejudice are your own to deal with. I am not responsible for white people slanted perceptions.

Diggur
Guest
Again, you’re not addressing the issues here. Forget the lawyer. He may or may not be right in what he is saying. Despite that, there are still problems and misconceptions between black people and white people that need to be resolved. These problems are being fueled largely by people like White Supremacists, The New Black Panthers, etc. I don’t want to stereotype. I don’t want to have misconceptions. I want to be able to talk with black people about our problems and try to solve them. That’s what I’m trying to do here. I want to understand how you feel,… Read more »

Ronald Green

It is sad. His premise is that it’s “whitey’s” fault and no amount of proof or conversation will change that. Just as you cannot reason with a Klan’s man, you cannot reason with him. Which is why this problem has become so difficult. There are too many like him… a perpetual victim.

Rena
Guest

You are assuming he is talking about “all” blacks when he is not. If you can’t understand what he experienced then you can’t understand what he was talking about. He states in his article that he is talking about his experiences, not the whole population but with this group type, where he works.

Rafael X
Guest

And I’m saying his experience is just that. He’s just one lawyer among millions and not a very good one at that. His experience is relevant to what exactly?

Rena
Guest

Right Raf, that is HIS experience, he wasn’t talking about what everyone else has experienced but his own. And what do you base your assumption that he is not a very good one? Do you know him personally? Have you seen his stats or are you just saying that because of the article he wrote that you don’t seem to not like or agree with?

Richard Cox
Guest

And you make an assumption about his skill as a lawyer based on absolutely zero evidence, thereby invalidating everything you have said

Rafael X
Guest

He says himself he plea bargains most of the time. No wonder with such weak arguments. He would get objected into oblivion.

Rena
Guest

Do you know that most lawyers plea bargain? Having studied law, I know this to be a fact. Most people do not want to spend time litigating cases and take chances of a higher sentence. Most cases plea out before they go to trial for that reason, to receive lower sentences and less fines. Most litigants prefer to pay a stiff fine over time served and many will opt for community service and fine to jail time.

Rafael X
Guest

We don’t even know if this guy really exist or if he’s really a lawyer.

Rena
Guest

You may be right, but before you go off accusing someone of being a “bad lawyer” because he plea bargains, you need to face facts. Don’t change the subject because you aren’t as informed as you think you are.

wag_dog_69
Guest

A plea bargain is a good option for a guilty person. That’s a pretty easy concept to understand. This lawyer represents guilty people who are best served by plea bargaining. That doesn’t make him a bad defense attorney. Quite the opposite. Unless you are the victim of course.

There may be other factors that contribute to the outcome of a black person, genetics, drugs, lack of education, etc. I think it’s mostly a vicious cycle that they are living in.

Somewhere in Hell, the old KKK members must be looking up and smiling. Two generations of well-intentioned government policies and giveaway programs have done more to create a perpetual black underclass than they were able to make with 100 years of cross-burnings, lynch mobs, and Jim Crow laws.

I agree with what you say, but I take some issue with the “well intentioned” part. No doubt there were a few well-intentioned people among the proponents of these idiotic policies, but I (and many black Conservatives) maintain that these were malignantly designed to create a dependent and easily controlled voting bloc. Now, we are at the point of the Left realizing their long-standing dream of a standing army of criminals which they want to use to keep “us” in check.

I agree….we use to have a program that eliminated all the obstacles that prevented people from getting jobs. It was very successful but it was cut! We gave them daycare, transportation and education and the majority that went through the program was very successful. I still keep in contact with one and she is a HR director at a large company!

Yes, and there are almost 6 times as many whites in the population. So by doing the math, this means any individual black person is about 6 times more likely to be on welfare than any white individual.

By reading these comments its clear to me that most don’t know ANY black people. Allen West is not the only successful black man in america…there are MILLIONS of successful black people in amerca. The criminals are the FEW but yet you seem to believe that the MAJORITY of black people are criminals are lazy or don’t work and on welfare!

“Success” as defined by whom? Those who pushed them up the ladder via affirmative action? Success at destroying White civilization is what that amounts to.

“Ignorance”? I’ve spent my entire life living in and/or working in the “hood”, so my perspective is based on anything BUT “ignorance”. Only a dishonest fool would suggest that “most Blacks are successful”.

Uncle Ruckus

So the majority of black people are not successful???

Scott Roberts

If left to their own abilities most would starve (just look at every country in Africa or any other Black run neighborhood, city, or country). Thank your Jewish daddy (Uncle Samuelstein) for the section 8 housing, the food stamps/cards, the free ride, and all the benefits that the truly racist affirmative action programs provide you with. If accepting/demanding handouts equals “success” in your eyes, then you have in fact been quite the “success”.

Uncle Ruckus

Let me get this right…most black people don’t take care of themselves??

Most Black people couldn’t even feed themselves, let alone compete on a level playing field, if not for the assistance they get.

Man you have to put down the kool-aid and admit the realities that we all see and know. White people are noticing more and more everyday what is going on and the last year in that regard has been historic. This article is totally right, and I would add that even among successful blacks there is still a tremendous problem with their values, morality, and behavior. The black church is failing blacks terrifically either for political or other reasons. I commend Allen West for stepping up and dealing with reality and proving that it is cultural more than anything else.

Yes there are many who become successful in the black community…like Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, and many others. The ones who are successful and conservative are called a lot of nasty names and the libs and many in the black community try to destroy them personally and professionally.

I’m sorry colleen but there are more successful black folks than conservatives….also…all those you’ve named doesn’t GO TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! At least Holder and Sharpton WENT THERE!!!

Ben Carson grew up in the getto of Detroit. His mother did him and his brother right. Carson is a neurological. He was the first doctor to separate conjoined twins at the head. His brother is a actual rocket scientist. So he has been there and lived it. I hope he runs for president. I would vote for him.

Holder went there to look for racist reasons to try to subvert the legal process and investigation.
Al not so Sharpton went there for racist reasons as well which was to stir up more trouble and make untrue allegations. He also went there just like Jesse hi Jackson to get “donations” from the very people they do not help.
As for your claim of more successful blacks than whites………..THAT is complete lie.

“Anecdotal evidence is often unscientific or pseudoscientific because various forms of cognitive bias may affect the collection or presentation of evidence.

But crime statistics are empirical evidence and they overwhelmingly indicate that blacks commit crimes at much higher rates than other racial groups.

Rafael X

They indicate that blacks get convicted at a higher rate. They are convicted at a higher rate because they are targeted at higher rate. No one knows who commits the unsolved crimes which are about 70% of all crimes committed. Only means that white offenders are less likely to convicted which proves the bias of the system.

While I do believe the source of this article is inherently racist, I would proffer that it is Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton who exploit the troubles in the black community to prosper.

I don’t see it on the mobile site but I’m about 90% sure the full site said “Michael Smith ” is a pseudonym. In any event, the fact that he withholds the name of the community shows he doesn’t want to be identified.

How does Allen West lift up the black community or try to help it? How does he use his position to inspire black youth??

I believe Mr. West knows he is admired by many but running for President after the Obama fiasco is a no win situation, it’s like having the wind knocked out of his sails . I feel the pain but I admire his determination to open the dialog door and to stop with the pussyfooting around with polite vomit. Life is tough and so people should buckle up and get busy fixing themselves first and foremost and stop blaming others for their own dirty laundry

Why can’t you take some of the simple basic truths that West has stated? He is trying to help. You can only help if you except the truth. He didn’t say all blacks. There is a Huge Problem in the Black Community. Do you want to fix it with facts or do you want to blame others and have the problems continue? It sickens me to see these people live in such hurt and lawlessness. The truth is the beginning of change. At least he addresses the issues.

How is allen west trying to help the black community by exclusively talking to the WHITE community? Please explain this one to me

If 1 white person learns something and uses that info to help someone in the Black Community, then its helping. Alen West informs people. Uncle Ruckus your angry. Never put down or challenge someone who is helping. Spreading info is helping. This form is helping by informing….

By letting more people become aware of the problems! White people aren’t in these neighborhoods, they have no idea how bad they really are and the black community wants to hide the fact of how bad they are. Speaking up to EVERYONE about it is what will bring change. Blacks aren’t prohibited from coming to Allen’s site. Why do you hate the idea of white people knowing of the problems? Are you really that racist?

Uncle Ruckus

Blacks aren’t prohibited from coming to allen’s site and allen isn’t prohibited from going to the community. Allen knows who he audience is and who he is talking to

Why are you so afraid to admit to the truths Allen West is pointing out? Why are you so afraid to have to lie and pretend the black community is doing just fine? Why do you want to shoot the messenger, does it really matter what audience is listening as long as people are talking about what can be done to help? So now, only black people can listen to Allen’s message? That is extremely racist of you.

Uncle Ruckus

But who is he telling these points to…people that already have a negative view of the black community….how does that help?
But…with allen it should be expected….he complains about OBAMA but instead of him running for office…he takes a job at a think tank!

“People that already have a negative view of the black coummunity” That comment only proves to me you are embarrassed to admit the problems in the black community. Like an alcoholic that can only talk to other alcoholics because they are embarrassed and think nobody else understands.

Uncle Ruckus

READ THE COMMENTS then get back with me….please point out the positive comments

CheetoBuster

Pointing out problems with crime, abortion, filthy neighborhoods, gangs etc. is only pointing out truth and truth is positive in the long run. Try accepting it for once in your life.

Uncle Ruckus

its called EXPLOITATION!! Getting white folks all afraid and hateful…thats all Allen west does….he does it with Muslims, Hispanics and Black people

CheetoBuster
Guest

The only one promoting HATE is you. That’s all I see out of all your post’s, You HATE Allen West so much that you will continue to look the fool. So sad too. What exactly did Allen do to you to engulf such hate in your soul??

William Reichold
Guest

Wow, what do you call it when a Black man kills another Black man for no good reason? Is that worse or better than this so called exploitation?

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

SO…what is his purpose by spouting facts that are already known?

CheetoBuster
Guest
So, you are saying, because Allen West is a black man he cannot critique what is going on in the black community? He has to stay in line with all the others and never speak bad upon the black community no matter what he knows? Is this how it goes? Totalitarianism? He does speak up for ALL people who act civilized, go to work and don’t live off of the government. Clearly he knows the black community can do better than what they have shown. Clearly he knows not all blacks cry racism every time something doesn’t go their way.… Read more »

He can critique all he wants BUT…the black people on his blog knows exactly what he is doing! Now he is going to white supremacist sites to get his articles….WOW is all i can say

What is he doing? He wants better for these communities and glossing over the fact and keeping his mouth shut about how these communities have real troubles won’t do a thing to make them better. You have to point out the problem and acknowledge there is a problem before you can fix a problem.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

How does he help those communities by talking to white people exclusively? You know just like I know that the only people that read his stuff are WHITE PEOPLE…how bout he go to the black community and speak?

CheetoBuster
Guest

Allen West does talk to the black community. He gives many speeches and there are plenty of black people listening. Like you. Why does the black community, and you are an example, get all pizzed off when he tries to talk about it? Why do you refuse to listen? Are you that racist or are you that embarrassed to admit the truth of what he is saying?

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Ok….did a search and found NOTHING showing allen west going into the black community! Everything listed was allen west putting down the black community….its called EXPLOITATION

CheetoBuster
Guest

YOu are a stubborn lost cause, you play victim, all whites are racist, Allen West is only using you and Obama is making everything better. Go drown yourself in that lie and continue to be the angry black man that you are.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Please provide me with ANY EVIDENCE of allen west going to the black community. I will do some research myself and see if I can find any

wag_dog_69

Who cares where he goes? He’s a success. He’s an example for others to follow. A gang banger, convict, etc can go “back to the community”, but that doesn’t make him a good role model or any sort of help to anybody’s community. Whereas Allen West is a good example for anyone to follow, not just those in the black community. Or is that why you don’t like him?

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

So me being a dad and going to work everyday and taking care of my responsibilities is not an example?
How is he a roll model for black people when black people DON’T KNOW WHO HE IS?!?!? He never talks to the black community….always AGAINST the black community. And please….maybe I missed it…but please show me some articles or anything he has said to LIFT and ENCOURAGE the black community

Amen!

Bonnie McCollett

each time I see you say something all I can think is wow what a racist. The intelligent person is well aware that West is not talking about all black people. The fear people have about young blacks is instilled by young blacks. YOU are part of the problem and people like YOU will keep the section of the black community that needs help the most right where they are by excusing everything and blaming whitey….good for you, your making groups like the KKK and arian nation very happy.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

And how is he helping by talking to WHITE PEOPLE? When did he go to talk to a black origination or black youth??

CheetoBuster
Guest

How is your great leaders in the democrat party helping anything by the continued “victim” mentality? I guess now it will take the white people to really help with the problems. Maybe once more white people know the game being played on the black community by the democrats change will come. Maybe if more white corrupt media listen and report of the real problems instead of making every black person a “victim” real change will come. Ya, talking to white people just might do the trick for once! Quit being so dammmned racist!!

Allen can use himself to encourage and inspire….he refuse to….instead he wants to point out everything thats wrong but YET doesn’t nothing to encourage

Mr. West does know this article came from a white supremacist website right? I am assuming that is why he didn’t reference the original website for his post here. http://www.amren.com/about/issues/

What part of…..”quite possibly the most racist article” don’t you understand??

Hy Alldredge

It’s not white supremacist. Even the SPLC classifies it as “white nationalist.” Putting it in the same category as say, stormfront or Aryan Nation is disingenuous. It certainly is controversial and espouses viewpoints deemed forbidden in the current culture, but it’s a far cry from the KKK. From the link you posted: “What we call race realism is what was considered common sense until perhaps the 1950s. It is a body of views that was so taken for granted it had no name, but it can be summarized as follows: That race is an important aspect of individual and group… Read more »

Then he goes to defend the content. I think the headline is just a crude attempt at sarcasm.

Why don’t your refute the FACTS in the article rather that attack the where it was posted.

There’s no facts just the narrow views of a crappy lawyer.

Uncle Ruckus

I don’t believe NONE of it since it was posted on a white supremacist site

Uncle Ruckus

These so called FACTS are posted on a WHITE SUPREMACIST site…and black people are suppose to trust that? GET OUTTA HERE with that!!

You don’t have to trust him. It costs nothing to go down to court and sit in as an observer. If you keep an open mind, you will see vast differences in the ways that people interact in court. You may not like what you see, but, there it will be.

I will see white folks with their lawyers and black folks with their public defenders

If you don`t trust it, go watch the TV show 48 hours…gonna refute what you see wth your own eyeballs?

Jeanette Victoria

I see you can’t refute the fact that Blacks commit MORE violent crimes and any other groups of people. Therefore you are forced the scream RAAACISTS.

If it were lies it wouldn’t be hard to find crime data that proved the writer wrong.

I see a lot of people trying to excuse this behavior by certain factions of the black community as being something to sympathize with because of the way they were raised or that they were poor or that’s all they know. Let me tell you people something. I grew up in what you could call the worst possible conditions for an American child to grow up. Dirt poor, a mother who was devoid of any kind of love, a step father who was a drunk and had a thing for little girls, the level of violence I experienced on a… Read more »
