Want to save black babies’ lives? That makes you a racist.

by editor on June 24, 2011

Black is beautiful just turned ugly. A California organization has been accused of racism because it ran pro-life outdoor boards in black neighborhoods.

Of course it sounds insane. But Representative Barbara Lee is involved in the story, so it’s insane by definition.

black-and-beautiful

Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Just keep repeating it until it's meaningless.

CNB has the story of the aborted ad campaign:

…The Issues4Life Foundation and The Radiance Foundation have launched a pro-life billboard campaign with the goal of saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of black babies aborted in America each year.

“The impact of abortion in the black community is the Darfur of America,” Walter B. Hoye II, president of the Issues4Life Foundation, told Life Site News.

The signs in question contain the message “Black & Beautiful” and are going up in largely black communities in Oakland, Calif.

Statistics show that black women are three times more likely to have abortions as the general population. So it would seem to be a good idea to run the ads in black neighborhoods. But, no, attempting to save the lives of black babies is – you guessed it – racist.

… Planned Parenthood and California pro-choice groups are calling the ads racist. They say the “black & beautiful” slogan is too close to the “black is beautiful” cultural-pride campaign made popular in the 1960s.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., has also spoken out against the billboards.

“I am deeply offended by the race-based billboards that are being displayed in my congressional district by the Radiance Foundation and Issues4life,” she said in a statement.

“These billboards stigmatize women of color and perpetuate myths about parenting skills and the types of women who seek and use abortion services,” Lee added.

You know the race mongers have truly jumped the shark when attempting to save the lives of black babies is called racism.

And in the case of Barbara Lee, it’s just too bad that retroactive abortion isn’t legal.

All a person need do is witness one liberal protest march or a gaggle of activists in action to know that Olivia is, projecting.

want to see some liberal “tolerance”, read the comments in response to CNN’s article on rape during the Holocaust.

And yet ANOTHER gullible far righter reads a bunch of anonymous reactions to a news story on a website, and immediately assumes that (1) none of the writers could possibly be trolls doing some pot stirring; and that (2) the ones who make the pot-stirring remarks must all be political liberals, even though none of them even mentioned their political views.

Just one more example of a right winger with a lazy mind. Or, perhaps, yet another troll trying to stir the pot.

Dont you dare put the word black on anything, unless you wish to be accused of being racist. The only time people of color wish to be aknowledged for being of a different skin tone is when it is beneficial to them. Otherwise, keep your blinders up and God help you if you use the term black, ever.

If we want to get rid of racism in this country, lets stop these whiney white liberals from throwing a hissy fit every time something offends them.

You are correct. In the end it is a lot of white liberals who are propagting this insanity. Then the hucksters like Jesse Jackson lap it up.

Nonsense. I’ve pointed out numerous times on this board that “skin color” (or, in your case, “skin tone”) is NOT a synonym for “race.” But I notice that it’s a favorite euphemism among the far right, in an apparent effort to trivialize a serious social issue into a mere subjective disagreement on color choices.

It’s also a favorite far right wing talking point to suggest that racism is all (and only) about bringing up the topic of race when others don’t want to talk about it. A very convenient ploy, by the way, for ducking the issue entirely. Only problem is, it doesn’t work on anyone with a working brain.

Yeah, right—-let’s all sweep racism under the rug, pretend it doesn’t exist, and fling childish insults at anyone who dares to mention it in any context. That worked SO well during the Jim Crow era, didn’t it?

I see that you have commented on every post listed so far. You are doing a great social justice for the liberal community. When you say conservatives are sweeping racism under the rug, you are wrong. We werent allowed to even mention Obamas middle name during the election because it was a little too risky. Liberals only use race to further their political aspirations while turning honest conservatives who are ready and willing to discuss issues, into back country hick folk with lynching ropes.

If you want to further progress in this country, stop hindering it by making sure no ones feelings get hurt. Take away dodgeball, there are no losers just winners, everyone gets a participation trophy, so on and so on.

Just so you know. Hope isnt a strategy, its a word losers use to justify losing.

The left has accomplished what Hitler couldn’t:Widely accepted, institutionalized extermination of large numbers of non-white people. They’ve been so successful that it is now racist to suggest we shouldn’t kill black babies before they are born.

The KKK should really just hang up their robes and watch.

Suggesting that Margaret is ‘smiling’ in Hell is an oxymoron KQ, there is no smiling in Hell, only wailing, moaning, and gnashing of teeth! If there’s any smiling, it’s from Satan and his crown and only until the Holy and Royal Adjustment Department Returns to place the inmates who currently think they run the place, back into their cells…forever more!

It is true that it is not a pleasant place at all, Hell I mean. However, I am sure you know what I meant. This was her plan all along. She was a racist and wanted to control the population of undesirables including Black people as well as people with Down Syndrome and so on. She was primarily behind PP being a federally assisted program for these purposes.

Oh, you, my dear, are so right! Margaret Sanger was held up by racists all over this country, and her eugenics programs were even adopted by at least 19 US states. Furthermore, Hitler, himself, endorsed her and sought to incorporate her ideas and philosophies into his government. He even cited current US federal and state laws and statues when he introduced his plans.

Did anyone happen to clue you in that Hitler’s been dead for over 65 years, and that the whole junk science of eugenics was discredited decades ago?

I know right wingers tend to be allergic to social change, but this is going a bit far, don’t you think?

********************
Is my use of the word ‘current’ what you’re all wrapped around an axle about? It’s used correctly in this instance, current meaning current at the time he was alive and current for the time frame that several of the states were, in fact, adopting eugenics programs and using them to destroy certain ethnic and religious groups in this country. If I’m not mistaken, Margaret Sanger was a Democrat with Socialist leanings and at that time, in the South, most of the states practicing or contemplating some form of a eugenics program were run by Democrats. We had a Democrat controlled House of Representatives, a Democrat Senate, a Democrat President, and a stacked Democrat leaning High Court! Call me a liar!

Don’t presume to correct my meaning simply because you yourself don’t possess a grasp of the English language, or American history! The word stays, and yes Hitler has been dead longer than you’ve been alive and as for Eugenics being discredited, think again, Oh smarmy one, what the hell do you think the Human Genome Program is all about and just where in the hell do you think it came from? Us right-wingers have every right to be overly concerned about what you leftards are doing to this country and our people, while you lie about not doing it! No one and I mean no one believes a word that comes out of Yo’mama’s lying pie-hole and no one believes a word you, his minion, say regarding the Liar-In-chief. You are, after all, just a liar lying for a liar!

It’s about the science of human genetics and DNA, Hisham. Did you think the only possible reason for learning about DNA would be to create some master race? If so, you need to spend less time listening to Rush Limbaugh, and more time learning about modern medical technology.

I believe that it might have been Lenin who refered to certain portions of society as “useful idiots” , meaning different cultures only served a purpose , until they were not needed anymore. Then they were ” put out to the cornfield”.

The ethnic cleansing that has been going on for the last decade or so , in southern California , speaks well of the care of the rulers. To watch your “own people” being run out of their neighborhood , suggest their usefullness is spent. To see your neighbor’s house being set on fire and not do anything about it , show’s love== NOT.

Re-conquista , eugenics , abortion serve the same end. What is needed is wisdom , and wisdom applied . Its there but only if you first realize you lack it and need it , then reach out for it. Otherwise enjoy that pot of boiling water , you frogs.

To your wisdom point, why do you think the leftists gravitated toward the educational system? They would’nt use their positions as teachers to “nudge” kids in a certain direction of thought? Would they?

*************************
And, once again, a far righter trots out a hoary old stereotype, rather than being honest enough to admit that teachers are individuals, and have many different reasons for choosing their career.

If that were the case, Dany, then it would be awfully stupid of right wingers NOT to go into the teaching profession, in an effort to balance out that perceived slant, wouldn’t it?

Or were you trying to insinuate that most right wingers aren’t smart enough or educated enough to qualify as professional teachers?

I realize your game Olivia, and can now succumb to the delusions of some of the other posts here that you are either a useful idiot yourself, or a paid poster.

Why do you constantly insinuate and generalize every single poster here into some “far righter trot(ting) out a hoary old stereotype.” It seems to be your gimmick and can therefore assume you are hardly over 15, lying about your profession, and completely uneducated enough to return our inquisitiveness about the current governance with anything else but the redundant left-wing regurgitated maddow-matthews-oman-gore rhetoric. You seem so completely brainwashed I almost assume you are watching Gore-TV 24/7.

Please get a life. I am praying for you. To Gaia. Since I am an atheist.

“Racist” actually means somebody who is racially prejudiced. But because many Democrats have trouble reading, especially complicated documents like dictionaries, they think it means “somebody who is not a Democrat.”

***************************
Not true—-but that’s a popular excuse for right wingers who wish to sneak in little racially charged insults under the radar, and get caught at it.

As any regular dictionary or sociology lexicon will tell you, a racist is someone who believes that (1) race is a primary determinant of an individual’s character and behavior, and that (2) some races are inherently superior or inferior to others.

Why in this world with a truly elected black president (with which white people were a more decisive factor in his victory then black people) is the word racist thrown around like it still has merit? Why can’t we as a nation, as a partisan group, as an individual dislike or like something without race entering in as a weapon on either side?

This is silly. These allegations of racism back and forth only perpetuate and exacerbate our differences while ignoring our collective interests: the bettering of America, the resumption of our founding principles, and the instilling of general human rights into the popular cultural evolution.

I know of no one in my life currently who hates black people because they are black. I know only one black who dislikes whites because they are white, and he is decent enough to hold most of this thoughts in public. Can we just move entirely past this issue, please, for the betterment of America? The only people still clutching on to the term or idea of racism are those who wish to use it as a weapon in achieving their own agenda.

It used to mean that one believes race is a determining factor of one’s personal character traits. Liberals genrally believe in Evolution over creation yet make an exception to race. Yup, thats right, peoples who evolved in different environments are somehow exactly the same inside.
Just ignore the over representation of black people in sports too.

Anyway, “Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Racist. Just keep repeating it until it’s meaningless.” Shheeeeeet, thats been meaningless for at least 8 or 9 years. Rational folks should just start calling eachother “racist” as terms of endearment, like many blacks do with the “N-Word”.

Not true, YT. In fact, we liberals spend quite a bit of our time debunking stereotypes (racial, religious, ethnic, gender, cultural, political, you name it) that right wing propaganda seems to thrive on.

No one is claiming that all black Americans are “exactly the same inside.” Most of us recognize that culture and personal life experience shape our personalities and life choices far more than our genetic make-up does. At the same time, it would be foolish to claim that genetics don’t play a part in individual POTENTIAL, or that lack of opportunity can’t play a role in causing an individual to make the kinds of choices s/he does.

Given the fact that so many far righters on this board have been snorting and giggling and salivating for weeks over the possibility of calling liberals “racist” who don’t fall all over themselves praising Herman Cain, it would seem that you’re more obsessed than we are with using the term as a weapon.

Let me ask you something: can you honestly state that you’ve NEVER seen any racially charged attacks (in the form of signs, photoshopped pictures, ugly stereotypes or accusations) aimed at the Obama family?

Or do you want to admit that SOME right wingers are prone to racial bigotry?

I’m really curious as to what gives you cause to believe that all “right wingers” as you call us are racist. Because although YOU may not think so… you are stereotyping us.

Right wingers are conservative correct? And quite a few conservatives are Christian. Now stay with me, in a second i’ll take religion back out of this. The majority of the ones that are Christian I HIGHLY doubt are racist. And now for nonchristians, it’s the same as Christians. They’re are undoubtedly racists that exist, but that doesn’t mean that the right wing population in it’s entirety is racist. So I really don’t think you are doing much better at not stereotyping than we are, or so you say we are.

Well. Let’s see here. The second we say something someone doesn’t like, a liberal that runs around, they fling the insult that we’re racist. Quite frankly I’m really not in the mood to hunt down examples of you calling us racist because I don’t want to take the time to go through your numerous posts, just rereading them bores me.

Go to the hate mail and read some of the posts there. A good 70% of them, if not more, fling around the term racism. Although I strongly agree with YT when he said “Anyway, “Racist. Racist. Racist.

Dear I Hate The Media and its low-brow readers,
How dare you limit the choice of black women!
If these black women do not wish to have a baby who may one day grow up, move into my lily white neighborhood and shop at the stores that I frequent then you have no right to restrict that decision.
You are racists of the worst sort.

Dear Coddington Fahrnsworth,

I must make a small correction to your choice of words. You stated above the you were indignated, well the past passive participle indignated is not a word and therefore, not a proper participle, unless of course you’re going all Merriam Webster on us. No, the particular word you seek is indignant, a proper past passive participle.
