With all the racial turmoil igniting in over 200 cities around the country, we all owe a thank you Professor Walter E. Williams, a black professor of economics at George Mason University, for bringing some rational thought into a national conversation that presently is devoid of any. He does so in an article featured in The Daily Signal. We should also thank Larry Elder, a best-selling black author and radio talk-show host, for being willing to do what others in the media refuse to, which is tell the truth about how much worse off Blacks are now, than they were before Barack Obama ever took office.
In the following video, recorded on Facebook Live, I review what should be required reading for the Black Lives Matter movement, a movement predicated on hatred and lies from its very inception, which began after the death of Michael Brown. I summarize the article by Professor Walter E. Williams, where he explains how it matters little whether politicians are black or white, or Democrats or Republicans. The core problems facing this country and the economy are beyond the reach of a president or any other politician to solve. If there is a solution he says, it will come from churches and local community organizations, not the federal government.
While Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is busy writing about the dangers of totally imagined catastrophes that Trump hasn’t caused, because he’s yet to take office, Larry Elder has been busy talking and writing about the actual dangers and damage to the black community that were specifically caused by Barack Obama. Elder just points to the math. Arithmetic does not lie. Obama and the media does. That is precisely why Trump supporters have organized a protest of their own set to begin November 20th intended to bankrupt CNN right off the air.
For the easily duped liberal masses who are so easily “offended,” not to mention easily hoodwinked by a mainstream media that insists on reporting how Donald Trump is a racist, despite his undeniable factual history of employing and advancing the careers of tens of thousands of minorities, I include two videos. The first is of the “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright, who Obama once said provided him with “day-to-day political advice.” Talk about “offensive?” The second video, among other things, includes actual video of Obama admitting that everything he’s ever learned about racism he learned from a communist agitator, Frank Marshall Davis, who hated America… Go figure!
Professor Walter E. Williams correctly points out, in light of the many difficulties within black communities, and the country as a whole, focusing energy and resources on the election of Trump is gross dereliction. Amen Professor. Amen.
Donald Trump’s surprise win has millions of Americans, many of whom are black, in a tizzy.
Many, such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, are writing about what it means to be black during a Trump administration even though Trump’s presidency has yet to begin. My argument has always been that the political arena is largely irrelevant to the interests of ordinary black people.
Much of the 1960s and ’70s civil rights rhetoric was that black political power was necessary for economic power. But the nation’s most troublesome and dangerous cities, which are also cities with low-performing and unsafe schools and poor quality city services, have been run by Democrats for nearly a half-century—with blacks having significant political power, having been mayors, city councilors, and other top officials, such as superintendents of schools and chiefs of police.
Panic among some blacks over the upcoming Trump presidency is unwarranted. Whoever is the president has little or no impact on the living conditions of ordinary black people, even when that president is a black person, as the Obama presidency has demonstrated.
The overall welfare of black people requires attention to devastating problems that can be solved only at the family and community levels.
Mountains of evidence demonstrate that outcomes are not favorable for children raised in female-headed households. Criminal behavior is greater, and academic achievement is much less for such children.
This is a devastating problem, but it is beyond the reach of a president or any other politician to solve. If there is a solution, it will come from churches and local community organizations.
Quite frankly, the overall welfare of black people, and every other kind of people, otherwise known as “Americans,” requires attention by people at the family and community level to make sure than actual “hate speech” like the speech that inspired Barack Obama is stomped out. Have a listen:
Education is vital to upward mobility. Most schools labeled as “persistently dangerous” are schools with predominantly black populations.
At many schools, students are required to walk through metal detectors and place their book bags and purses on a conveyor belt that goes through an X-ray machine. Armed police patrol the school to try to stem school violence. But even with a police presence, teachers, staff, and students are assaulted.
A policy that permanently removes troublemakers would make a greater impact on black education than anything a U.S. president could do. The fact that black parents, teachers, and civil rights organizations tolerate and make excuses for the despicable and destructive behavior of so many young blacks is a gross betrayal of the memory, struggle, sacrifice, sweat, tears, and blood of our ancestors.
The sorry and tragic state of black education is not going to be turned around until there’s a change in what’s acceptable and unacceptable behavior by young people. That change could come only from within the black community.
Using 2012 data from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Law Street Media offers some sobering statistics in an article titled “Crime in America: Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities Over 200,000.”
The nation’s most dangerous big cities are Detroit, Oakland, St. Louis, Memphis, Stockton, Birmingham, Baltimore, Cleveland, Atlanta and Milwaukee. The most common characteristic of these cities is that they have predominantly black populations.
Another common characteristic is that for decades, all of them have been run by Democratic and presumably liberal administrations. Some cities—such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark, and Philadelphia—haven’t elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century.
Here are some indisputable facts: Crime imposes a huge cost on black communities in the forms of human suffering and economic well-being. It matters little whether the U.S. president is black or white, Democrat or Republican. It also matters little whether local politicians are black or white or Democrats or Republicans.
What will matter is an unyielding black intolerance for crime, along with a willingness to allow policing authorities to do what is necessary to stop criminals from preying on the overwhelmingly law-abiding people of the community.
In light of the many difficulties within black communities, focusing energy and resources on the election of Trump is gross dereliction.
To conclude all this nonsense about race, let’s not forget where Obama has been caught on video telling us who taught him all about “White Racism,” and had such a profound effect on his beliefs and ideology growing up. In an extraordinary development, film of Obama explicitly and openly identifying “Frank” as Frank Marshall Davis surfaced on the Internet a year or two ago. It is described as having been recorded on September 20,1995, with the program originally airing on Channel 37 Cambridge Municipal Television as an episode of the show “The Author Series.”
In the video, Obama admits the mysterious “Frank” from his book Dreams from my Father is indeed the communist Frank Marshall Davis. But Obama does NOT say Davis was a communist, despite the FBI keeping a file as thinks as the yellow pages on the man. Those of us screaming from the rooftops in 2008 about the profound effect a dangerous communist like Davis must have had were called “conspiracy theorists,” or “racists.” Chalk another one up for those crazy “conspiracy theorists” being right AGAIN!
Where was the mainstream media when Obama was running for office? Why didn’t they find this video? Ah, yes, that’s right, they were focused on whether Sarah Palin preferred her subscription to “National Review,” “Vogue,” or the liberal rag known as “Time.” What was I thinking???? Clearly that was much more important.
The words of Professor Walter E. Williams in the article above, and the horrifying statistics provided by Larry Elder I reviewed in the first video above should be a wakeup call to anyone who sees or hears them. The majority of people currently out protesting, are either being paid to do so, or doing so predicated on lies.
It is a known fact that George Soros has said, Western Society must fall before a One World Government can be enacted. It’s also a fact that Soros funds far left groups like Black Lives Matter. Someone is financing entire fleets of busses to bring in agitators to these major protests. This week we learned that most of the arrested Portland protesters are from Oregon did’t vote, weren’t registered to vote, or weren’t even from Oregon. The chaos we are seeing is being bought and paid for. THAT should bother you! THAT should deeply trouble, and deeply offend ALL Americans.
Forces from outside our country are trying to influence our elections, and are ginning up so much social anger, at some point the kettle is going to blow, and you can expect to see massive violence erupt. As proof that sane Americans recognize how close to the brink we are, look no further than the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Military pleading with the troops not to revolt over this election, no matter what happens. Things are about to get very ugly, especially as we get closer to Inauguration Day.

Michael’s political journey began with tuning in religiously to whatever the talking heads on television had to say, then Michael became a “Tea-Bagging” activist as his liberal friends on the Left would say, volunteering within the Jacksonville local Tea Party, and most recently Michael was sworn in as an attorney. Today, Michael is a major contributor to www.BeforeItsNews.com, he owns and operates www.thelastgreatstand.com, where Michael provides what is often very ‘colorful’ political commentary, ripe with sarcasm, no doubt the result of Michael’s frustration as he feels we are witnessing the end of the American Empire.
