Racism is not dead, but it is on life support -- kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as 'racists'

Thomas Sowell. amen

Unfortunately, race hustlers make a lot of money on this. My father was a university professor and in the early 80s he was so excited to have a very well known black activist come to the school. The excitement gave way to later disappointment when it was clear it was all about the fees the person was to get. Yes, the person was electric when speaking but it was all about the dead presidents afterwards. This is the hustle and why you have Maxine Waters, who is buds with many industry leaders, doing nothing for her community. She only needs to request that Silicon by the Beach be re-located to her community and they surely would do her bidding. Couple this with after-school coding programs in the area and you would have economic and educational transformation. But the gravy train would end.

I couldn’t have written it better myself. And I’m just as white as the Corpse in Chief. 😁 But seriously, Joe Biden’s casual racism has been on display for 50. He was and is a very bad person. I expected he’d be bad at his job, but I never expected it would be this awful. 😑

Actually Jews are also taken for granted by the Democrats and while we do tend towards the left the fact that that left is moving more left and anti-Israel is starting to shake that allegiance.

Adam, I think you are right. That was a profound moment and it was very telling (and amazing) that there was no "outcry." Well written, sir.

I found Biden’s comments very offensive. The Democrat Party assumes they are “entitled” to the black vote because of “everything” they have done to help the black voters. However, although they haven’t delivered many real accomplishments, you can count on them to come around next year during election season. Maybe the right answer would have been to ask Biden what he meant by that. That would be a very interesting explanation.

When I heard Biden say that, my brain had the same negative alert response I have when someone is hostile because I don't "act like a female" and when I have my own ideas and thoughts that diverge from the hostile observer. It blows my mind that there are many men (Charlemagne) that don't mind this bozo telling him how and what to think.

I'm so excited that there are black people that are tired of being dependant on the Democrats, who in saying they want to "help" black people, actually enslave them to their economic systems.

I want them to rise up and become equal members of our society and for racism to die.

I pray that God builds strong black(and, ultimately, all races) fathers who will build the next generation.

It shouldn't have shocked me but when he made that remark, I was shocked! All of his old Senate buddies were segregationists. I know he's an evil jerk...but I didn't think people talked like that anymore! I really enjoyed this article. And thanks for addressing that particular elephant in the room.

Finally... a thinking comment on the subject of such gross patronage.

Joetato felt comfortable because he DOESN'T CARE. He knows he can get away with it; just like he bribed the Ukranians to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the now First Crackhead's business associates, how he gropes little girls and sniffs their hair. The mainstream media and the DNC have convinced people not to care so he gets away with it.

“It's been over three years since Joe Biden publicly stated that if a black person doesn't vote for him that "you ain't black" but I haven't seen many people ask this question:

Why did Biden, an old white guy, feel comfortable making that statement in the first place?”

I don’t have an answer to this question, just as I don’t have answers for so many things that have been happening lately. There just seems to be so many strange things going on simultaneously that don’t map at all into my mental map of how things normally work in the world.

I don’t think all of the strangeness boils down to politics, but with an election year coming up, hopefully people will ask themselves if these have been the best three years of their lives. Or maybe the worst? Trust in traditional media is at a historical low, so perhaps we would do well to just consider our personal experiences in this recent time period instead of looking to outside sources. Maybe people will trust themselves enough to rely on their own intuitions as to whether they want to experience four more years that are similar to the last three.

nefarious white people? What about nefarious black people? What about just plain nefarious people? They come in all sizes, shapes, and colors, don’t they?

They're all bad, yes but I'm talking about the context of black people not realizing others, who don't mean them well, will attempt to use the same tactic against them.

I often think of this Bible verse:

Genesis 6:5 AMP

“The LORD saw that the wickedness (depravity) of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination or intent of the thoughts of his heart were only evil continually.”

There is nothing new under the sun: all all people need to be aware that there are nefarious people who seek only their own benefit and power. Many of them are in political positions.

Excellent point. Amen!!!!

I think Joe Biden felt comfortable saying, "You ain't black..." for the same reason many white liberals, until pretty recently -- felt comfortable in blackface at cocktail parties and on TV. They always assume that their sense of moral superiority will eclipse and survive their own wayward behavior. The same warped sense of moral superiority in Hollywood still protects and forgives sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein -- a virtual beacon of liberal causes. It explains why celebrities and folks like John Kerry fly to climate change conferences in private jets. It explains how they can claim bodily autonomy for themselves when it comes to abortion but demand you surrender yours for an experimental vaccine. It explains how they can support the slaughter of other human beings halfway around the world in the name of democracy and freedom. It explains how they can condemn children of color to impoverished lives in systemically racist school systems while they send their own kids to private schools. It explains how they can utterly ignore the murder of thousands of young black men in generationally blue cities while the feckless mayors of those same cities blame MAGA white supremacists and the Second Amendment. They do these things because -- institutionally -- they own the culture, and therefore have little or no reason to fear the consequences of their own behaviors.

Thanks for this salient analysis addressing Biden's blatantly racist comment. I'm still horrified by his words and I'm not even black. Great piece.
