By now everyone is familiar with the debacle that has become of Jussie Smollett and his now-in-shambles career. What no one wants to admit however is that his idiotic orchestrated attack is an absolute representation of what is wrong today with what we will call The New American Racism.
Racism – by definition – is something that any race can perpetrate against any other race. What is an amazing phenomenon these days however is how many African Americans have convinced themselves that it is not possible for racism to occur against white Caucasians in the United States. If you don’t believe it, ask ten blacks that you know and I GUARANTEE YOU that at least some will agree to this absurdity. This is a fallacy that is the result of liberal teachers and professors that have MISTAKENLY over the course of decades attempted to redefine the word “racism” with the definition of “institutional racism” – which is STILL something that can occur against any race, however in America it has historically been perpetrated against persons of color or minority groups.
The key word in that last sentence was “historically”. The fact is, times have changed and the world has changed, but some African Americans have not changed along with the rest of us. They are STILL claiming that persecution or hatred from the “white man” is what is keeping them down, and apparently when evidence is lacking, THEY FALSELY MANUFACTURE IT !!!!!!!!!
Jussie Smollet has just done what is so predictable with African Americans in the modern world of freedom and equal opportunity. Instead of just figuring out how to be as successful as he wants to be (which is unclear considering he was already a successful actor), he tries to tear others down by fabricating a fake sense of racism and persecution against himself. People. This is NOT 1860. This is NOT 1950. THIS IS 2019! Let’s all say it together: TWENTY NINETEEEEEEEN.
This nation is NOT the prejudice environment that it once was. OBAMA was even elected to TWO terms! Muslims now reside in our Congress. Every year there are thousands of foreigners that arrive and somehow find out how to be successful, most of them NOT white! Notice how America lets Indians, Pakistanis, Vietnamese, Chinese, Syrians, Africans, and an entire host of others into this nation every year? How could this country be thought to be as racist as it once was? Were it still to harbor the resentments that people such as Smollett try to insinuate, then all of these other races would be having the same problems and crying (wolf) as loudly as some African Americans are correct?
The simple answer is that Smollett CAN’T prove that this phantom racism even still exists against blacks in any measurable form, and THAT is obvious due to the “attack” he had to orchestrate against himself. Let’s talk about the truth here. The New American Racism is actually not against minorities at all. It is against Caucasian Americans. That’s right, the tables have somehow now been reversed. This is an insanely strange phenomenon, but what has happened is that once blacks got all of the rights they demanded in this country, they realized they STILL couldn’t work as hard as the Vietnamese boat people refugees whose kids are now pharmacists, and STILL couldn’t work as hard as just-as-dark Indians working in tech fields with $900K+ homes, and they STILL couldn’t find any real excuse for their bad attitudes and lack of success other than to blame the “white man”.
Notice how NO OTHER RACE in the United States of America is CRYING as loudly as African Americans about things not being fair? If anything, all doors are open for any African American that wants to walk through them. Due to specifically appropriated scholarship funds and programs like Affirmative Action, blacks in this country today in TWENTY NINETEEN actually HAVE all of the opportunities that their forefathers fought so hard to achieve, but….like a broken record some are still “playing the race card”.
African Americans. Grow up. Understand that no one is holding you down any longer, but YOURSELVES – Jussie Smollett is a great example. No one but HIMSELF put him into the unenviable situation he now finds himself in. The “white man” is NOT keeping you down any longer, and NO ONE is listening to that bullshit anymore considering foreigners are coming to this nation in DROVES every year and finding ways to be successful – when most of them don’t even speak good English!
I thought this cry baby crap was going to end after Obama’s election. What happened? This nation has PROVEN that everyone here has just as difficult of a time as everyone else, and HARD WORK is what gets you success, NOT complaining. Quit wasting your time playing the victim like Mr. Smollett and figure out how to be successful without needing to cry like a little baby and tear whites down with The New American Racism that YOU are the perpetrators of!
“The race card” is no longer a winning hand…it is a LOSING hand in this thing called modern reality. While you are busy complaining (and earning NO money doing so), the rest of us are busy DOING this thing called work. Work = Success. No one else is going to make you successful – you have to do that for yourself. Those are the rules of life that ALL of the OTHER races in America live by and somehow can do so without crying about being persecuted when in fact that is history, NOT TWENTY NINETEEN! Catch up to the rest of us, and stop living in the past please.

Apparently John Blake @ CNN is also talking about Smollett’s lack of a hand with the typical race card. THANK YOU Mr. Blake.
