How racial oversensitivity can lead to self embarrasement.

7-20-2008

If "ignorance is bliss", then there are people in our society that are in shear utopia. When I commented on Rene Marie, I wanted to present an example of how blacks in American society have been dumbed down and manipulated by what I call "BSV". That stands for "Black Self Victimization". One of the symptoms of "BSV" is when blacks become oversensitive over a word or phrase that has no racial definition or origin. Here's a case study.During a Dallas Commissioner meeting, the Dallas County Commissioner made a reference to the paperwork seeming to disappear into a "black hole". Anyone who took science or astronomy knows what a black hole is and what it does. Any rational thinking person black or white wouldn't have thought twice about what the commissioner said. So much for rationality in this case. Judge Thomas Jones who is black became upset and wanted an "apology", because of the comment Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield's made about the paper work disappearing into a black hole. He deemed that comment to be "racially insensitive". Just look at the video, and please point out what exactly was "racially insensitive" about what Commissioner Mayfield said in reference to a "black hole".







What stuns me more then this joke of an incident actually being called "controversal" is that Thomas Jones is an actual judge!! This person shouldn't even be in a position of power due to his mental condition. This story also shows how people who are oversensitive demand others to be "politically correct" when in their presence. So what's next on the political correctness, racially oversensitive hit parade? Maybe people like Mr. Jones might want to look into banning the game of "billiards". Doesn't that make sense from a PC point of view? The poor colored balls are racially attacked by the white cue ball, and the "black eight ball" is saved for last to be highlighted how the white cue ball holds dominance over it. This analogy is funny and absolutely absurd I know, and so are people like Mr. Thomas Jones. I guess if the electricity goes out in Mr. Jone's neighborhood, a white person will be ill advised to use term "blackout or brownout". Once again another illustration in which I shake my head and sigh. People like Mr. Jones probably think shadows are oppressed because they are black too and are stood on.

I laughed out loud when I heard this one. I thought how stupid this man it. Is he that ignorant? I just could not stop laughing. I probably should be crying now that I realize that this man is a judge.

I listened to a radio program where the host asked callers to call in and discuss what they would need to change. One person that works in IT (like myself) called in. I do not know if he was talking about an actual situation but it sounded like it was real. Those that know about system boards on PCs knows that there are several ports on the drive where diskette, CD or DVD drives are plugged in. When two disk drives are plugged into the board one is called the master and the other is called, you guessed it, the slave. This fellow said that in order not to offend people they are now using primary and secondary to refer to these drives. The sad thing about it is that the boards themselves still say master and slave when you boot up. Of course my reaction was 'OH BROTHER'.

I still cannot believe that the man did not know what a black hole was. Did he graduate from Romper Room University or Pee Wee Herman Junior College?

This guy is just an example of a combination of intellectual ignorance and hyper racial sensitivity. I understand the the move away from master/slave. We have servers at work that are in a master/slave configuration, only they are called leader/follower. Maybe real leaders and followers don't have "civil rights activist" looking out for their best interest.

This sounds like the time on January 15, 1999, David Howard, a white aide to Anthony A. Williams, the black mayor of Washington, D.C., used the word "niggardly" in reference to a budget. This apparently upset one of his black colleagues (identified by Howard as Marshall Brown), who incorrectly interpreted it as a racial slur and lodged a complaint and demanded that Howard to be fired.. As a result, on January 25 Howard tendered his resignation, and Williams accepted it.

I was attending a black church growing up. I remember a bw using that term while supposedly giving the announcements. However she was cloaking a slur using that word. It was not innocent like was mentioned by anon 10:27 pm.

Eric, I would love to know if the system boards no longer use master/slave to describe drive configuration. I have not built a computer in several years so I seriously do not know the answer.

Again I could not understand how a judge could not know what a black hole is.

I guess I just do not let those slurs identify who I am. I will call people on it if I hear a real racial slur. However black hole as a slur is amazing to me. I guess the word black in any context is now a slur. Have mercy.

pamela"I laughed out loud when I heard this one. I thought how stupid this man it. Is he that ignorant? I just could not stop laughing. I probably should be crying now that I realize that this man is a judge."

I actually had a stunned look on my face when I saw the video pamela. The scary aspect is that is guy isn't the only black person in America that is so ignorant due to racial oversensitivity. I said from day one, and I have repeated often "Race has an ability of dumbing down people". Sure enough I was proven right yet again pamela.

pamela "This fellow said that in order not to offend people they are now using primary and secondary to refer to these drives. The sad thing about it is that the boards themselves still say master and slave when you boot up. Of course my reaction was 'OH BROTHER"

Absolute insanity. I use to work as a PC tech a long time ago. Even on today's hard drives the jump settings still have MASTER and SLAVE lol lol. I never think anything of it. Matter of fact I just installed an Maxtor drive on my main system, and it is set as a Master Drive. I wonder should I feel oppressed?:-0 lol lol Pretty soon the military might have to rename the "BLACK hawk" helicopters out of PC lol

pamela"I still cannot believe that the man did not know what a black hole was. Did he graduate from Romper Room University or Pee Wee Herman Junior College?"

That is the main point pamela. A judge is suppose to be smart enough to interrupt laws and rule on cases. Judges normally start out as lawyers. How in the world this idiot was able to pass the bar exam yet didn't know something an average 5th GRADERS KNOWS?! No wonder our court system is so screwed up.

lol lol, your absolutely correct conservative black man. I forgot about that. I wonder how many black raider fans that sat in the "blackhole" during Raider games felt insulted due to the name of the section they were in? More then likely 0 percent. Speaking of sports, I heard of efforts by crybaby PC groups to try and get the Washington "REDSKINS" to rename its team and change its logo. They tried a few years ago trying to go after the Cleveland Indians organization to change it's logo.

I remember that incident.It's beyond shameful that David had to lose his job for using a word that had absolutely NOTHING to do with or related to race. Basically he lost his job, because Marshall Brown is an intellectual dimwit.I'm more then certain that Williams behind the scene pressured Howard to resign so that Williams wouldn't have looked like the bad guy. Liberalism truly is a mental disorder and Political Correctness is a byproduct of it no doubt about it!

Pamela, I am not sure if the server configuration is down to the system board level. I only know that these devices were named and the application has been "updated" out of sensitivity to the easily offended id10ts.

BTW, have you seen this --> http://www.hypemovie.com

Blogger Pamela said...

Eric, I had not heard about the hype movie. The sad thing to me is about 3:05 into the trailer you have Armstrong Williams calling him a socialist of the worst kind. I'm sure you are aware that he and JC Watts were considering voting for the socialist.

CB, I did not think the boards had changed to primary/secondary. That is amazing to me. I never think of myself as anyone's slave. It just NEVER EVER crosses my mind.

I will be watching the Democratic convention really closely. I'll have to catch it on C-SPAN since I do not have cable.

Don't forget the NCAA is working hard to avoid offending Indians by making the colleges change their nicknames. Of course many Indian tribes have formally approved the use of their tribal names, not that it mattered to the NCAA. Maybe they should go back to counting their money or something.

And to think this dork is a judge. Is he offended that the robes are black, or that when a company is doing well it's in the 'black'? What about blacktop?

The insanity goes on and on.

I graduated from San Diego State University. Our mascot and logo is the Aztec. There were Native American groups and others who had no ancestoral ties to the Aztecs protesting to change the name. It was crazy. They became upset when the university changed the mascot's attire and then they demanded it be changed back.

I rather watch paint dry or watch the weather channel at 3am just for fun theN watch the Democrat Convention pamela. If all hell breaks loose in Denver then I will be tuned in for sure. lol Here's the overall summary of the Democrat convention Pamela. Bush this, Bush that, Bush ran over my cat, Bush stole my pork and beans, Bush stole candy from little baby's, Bush cut the tags off of mattresses, Bush ruined the ending to the Dark Knight by tell people standing in line how it was going to end, Bush causes global warming, global cooling and global lukewarming, Bush causes hurricanes, Bush causes cyclones, Bush enslaves black people to mine for oil on the moon for halliburton. Thats just for starters on day one Pamela, I hope your ready.

Yes we all know that Bush is evilness personified. If I stub my toe Bush made me. If I get fat Bush shoved the food down my throat. I'm black (God help me) because it's Bush's fault. I agree about the whining about Bush.

I guess I'm expecting a fight. If there is a fake lovefest I won't be watching either. All I care about is whether Hilary releases her delegates. From my understanding that has not happened yet.

I don't know why this is, but when I think about Political Correctness Vegas art guy, I automatically picture "Alan Colmes".lol From a ration approach I would think that using Indian names or mascots for sports teams is a great way to expose the Indian culture to everybody. A child who doesn't know what a brave is might be inclined to do some research on them just out of curiosity because he saw the name on a Atlanta Braves Jersey. Something tells me that the people that moan and complain about the names and mascots of Indians being used in NCAA sports more then likely don't watch sports to begin with vegas.

vegas"And to think this dork is a judge. Is he offended that the robes are black, or that when a company is doing well it's in the 'black'? What about blacktop?"

It wouldn't surprise me in the least vegas. I going to find out if he was appointed or was elected judge.

I don't have cable or satellite. I haven't checked to see what network will show the Dem convention. I'll what just to see if Hillary supports take the PUMA route. I think the Dem convention would be worth watching to see the lib version of palm Sunday.

I heard about Armstrong, but not about JC. If they supported BHO, they would completely loose my respect. How could you completely compromise you beliefs to support a socialist?

Eric, the article I read about this was originally on the Fox News election page a few weeks ago. My mom subscribes to two black newspapers. Both of them gave the same report. They specifically mentioned Armstrong and JC. It said that they were considering voting for him. I'm in OK so the fact that JC Watts said this really played out here, especially with our left leaning local paper. It was talking about how some black conservatives were torn about who to vote for. The article also mentioned Michael Steele and how he was firmly in the McCain camp. I remember an opinion piece on Fox News months ago that Steele wrote about supporting McCain.

I'm convinced that both Armstrong and JC are bowing to pressure somewhere, especially Armstrong since he has on record stating that he thought that Obama was a socialist. I also bet that both of them have gotten a lot of emails about their statements.

It seems to me that too many politicians are bowing for power and prestige these days. The bc does not make it easy for black conservatives as it is. I'm sure they are also under pressure being black to not go against another black person.

There has been similar incidents like the time when H. Ross Perot, as a presidential candidate, was giving a speech at an NAACP convention and some members in the crowd got indignant toward after he said "You people".
Now I have gone to some ceremonies and other events where they have a guest speaker and they too say, "you people"; nobody, especially me, never got upset with them.

Pamela"'m convinced that both Armstrong and JC are bowing to pressure somewhere, especially Armstrong since he has on record stating that he thought that Obama was a socialist. I also bet that both of them have gotten a lot of emails about their statements."

I heard JC Watts and Armstrong Williams on Hannity's show a few weeks ago pamela talking about that issue. JC got defensive and attacked the GOP for not having a black candidate or something along those lines. In essence, nothing was stopping JC Watts from running for the nomination himself. He used this tactic as a way to deflect the questions Sean asked him. Armstrong sounded like a guy tormented when trying to give an answer. All I can say speaking for myself is that I never thought once about voting for Obama for one obvious reason. I'm a conservative and Obama is a liberal. People ask me why I'm not voting for Obama. As a conservative , why would I completely sellout my principals to vote for a person I have nothing in common with or agree on? If I was to vote for Obama, I really wouldn't have the right to attack him on his flawed liberal policies, because I would have helped him become president to enact his liberal policies by voting for him in the first place. So to Armstrong and Watts, they need to some serious soul searching. Do do they stand for convictions and principal, or do they stand for skin color.

I remember the infamous "You people" comment. Ross should have just skipped the NAACP convention in the first place, every or mostly every member voted for Clinton anyways. I liked Perot, He was definitely a fiscal hawk. Political Correctness is nothing more then a form of social mind control.

In "some conservative" circles, J.C. Watts has become somewhat of a Benedict Arnold....

To boot, J.C. Watts has more skeletons in his closet than a graveyard.

CB, I believe JC was quoted saying similar stuff in the article. I agree 'get your butt out there'. I'm from OK so we have kept up with him. Many were wanting him to run for higher office but he refused. His claims are lame because I know he would have gotten the support not only here in OK but across the country. He would be all over Fox News and other conservative leaning media. He would not be hurting for press coverage at all. I'm convinced that they could be selling out purely for race. That line is so lame it is laughable.

Sidebar: I'm listining to KFAQ right now. They are interviewing a fellow that is promoting Booker T Washington and his 'philosophy'. Amazing how quiet blacks are about him. We have a magnet school called Booker T Washington. This fellow has launched a web site to help connect conservative blacks at the grass roots level. There is a part of me that feels that maybe conservative blacks would have more of an influence with grass roots efforts. With a strong grass roots effort it would be more difficult for the so-called black leadership to dismiss and slander them. I have not checked out the site but I will.

Sidebar: I don't know if this is just something to fill news space or what. but if this is really increasing the Democratic convention could be a bloodbath. I would fall down on the floor if Senator Clinton goes away quietly. From my understanding she has not released her delegates yet. Until she does I will be convinced that this will be the most volatile Democratic convention in recent days. I won't say of all time because there will be no shootouts like they had in the 1800s.

P Allen"In "some conservative" circles, J.C. Watts has become somewhat of a Benedict Arnold."

I've heard similar stories Allen. I would be lying if I said I didn't think the same thing about Williams and Watts. As a core conservative, I could never abandon who I am and what I believe to vote for someone who holds views completely opposite of mines just because they of the same skin color. If Watts, Wiliams and other so called conservatives want to vote for Obama, they have every right in which to do so. It's freedom of choice, however they really don't have the ground in which to criticize his liberal views seeing that they were the ones that helped get him elected in the first place.

What's funny to me is there was a report that a high school student came to school wearing a "Lynard Skynard" t-shirt; most of the albums done by "Lynard Skynard" usually has the Confederate flag for their logo. The t-shirt he was wearing did have a Confederate flag on it.

The principal told him to cover up his shirt or be sent home, fearing that it would offend some black students.

Yet, the student pointed out to the principal that there were some students around the school that were wearing Cleveland Indians ball caps or a Washington Redskins t-shirts, which some Native Americans have found offensive.

The principal saidn, that so far, there has not been any reports about Native American students being offended.
