I was sitting around wondering what to write about when I came across an article on CNN.com which gave me the material and motivation I needed. The subject matter of the article were comments made by Jeb Bush that stated, "Democrats lure black voters with free stuff" to win elections. My first thought was, "Aint this some shit?!" Especially when you look at the fact that black people gave white people free stuff in the form of our bodies and labor through slavery and the rape of our women during a span of over two hundred years which they still reap residual income from.
So now we have a problem with free things being given out Mr. Bush? Or how about the subtle statistic of how Jews were given over 24 billion dollars I think, after the Holocaust in different forms of reperations while the African American community dealt with over several hundred years of slavery, persecution and maltreatment at the hands of White America, yet I've seen no checks of any lump sums or vouchers for businesses being given out in the black community.
So please, stop insulting Black America. Yes, we do have people in the African American community who take advantage of the welfare system, but so does White America as well. There are also immigrants who do exactly the same. The point I'm making is to use welfare fraud or manipulation as a stereotype that's exclusive to the black community is unfair, disrespectful, and a gross misrepresentation of the truth. Why doesn't he talk about the corporate billionaires who are recipients of welfare.
Such as the many who pay no taxes yet get tax refunds at the end of the year. That itself is corporate welfare which makes no sense. Especially when you have so many blue color folks working hard everyday to make a living and support their families in an uphill battle, yet many don't get a tax return, they are still paying in. These same folks that are paying in, work for these very same billionaires in some form or fashion that are themselves benefitting from "free stuff" in the form of special benefits and corporate welfare.
I think people like Jeb Bush also need to realize and own up to the fact that many minorities are hard working folks that don't take anything free. Hell, I could use some free things but I don't get anything free nor do I ask for anything free. I went to college, have my degree, yet I still work two jobs to get by and I don't even have children yet. How much more daunting of a reality would I be living if I in fact had children to take care of as many others do?
Why should I struggle and still have to pay in taxes while a billionaire, who Mr. Bush has probably had some financial connections to in the past through stocks of some sort get a refund and not pay in at all? All this propaganda against minorities needs to stop. Because the bottom line is we also make up a tremendous amount of this nation's assets. If all minorites ceased to put forth money or give business to white owned corparations and companies and only purchased from minority owned companies or businesses, the entire social and economic structure of White America would turn upside down.
Or better yet, if we all minorities decided to flat out boycott and not spend any money, this country would collapse. So as much as many of you would love to slander us and act like you don't need us or that we aren't important, your train of thought is only valid while the masses stay unaware of the little tidbits of information i've just put forth. But beware, when everyone else starts to wake up to these facts and decides that they want to do something about it, you may find that the Ivory tower of Mr. Bush and so many that think like him, will quickly collapse, and they may in fact be the ones who are in need of "Free Stuff!".
