Identity Politics or American Like Me

Do black Americans want to be called African-Americans?

Why do black Americans hyphenate their identity?

What do conservative black Americans think? And, why do we talk about minorities? There are no minorities in America. There are only legal Americans.

After watching the video ask yourself why Barack Obama and Jesse Jackson and Eric Holder and Al Sharpton and the SPLC (the “Hate Watchers”) et al want to divide the country into black and white, rich and poor, big “G” Government versus John Doe and Christians? Why create class and race division and also animus towards Christians (remember “bitter clingers” comment?) among the people of the United States of America?

Take a look:

    It’s quite simply that those who wish to control have identified the large concentrations of power in America and have worked tirelessly to tear them down to a more controllable size. I believe Caesar called it “Divide and Conquer”. The smaller you make the group, the easier they are to control.

    Can you not think of an American that couldn’t be part of a group?

      If I understand your meaning, yes, those in power will seek to “divide and conquer” with the socio-political tools of re-labeling people, redefining words and meanings, invoking class warfare and by saying good is bad and bad is good.

      I like the candor of Thomas Sowell, economist, atheist. Here are some of his quotes:

      “Groups that rose from poverty to prosperity seldom did so by having their own racial or ethnic leaders to follow.”

      “In various countries and times, leaders of groups that lagged behind, economically and educationally, have taught their followers to blame all their problems on other people – and to hate those other people.”

      “The word ‘racism’ is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything – and demanding evidence makes you a ‘racist.’”

      “The black family survived centuries of slavery and generations of Jim Crow, but it has disintegrated in the wake of the liberals’ expansion of the welfare state.”

      “The people made worse off by slavery were those who were enslaved. Their descendants would have been worse off today if born in Africa instead of America. Put differently, the terrible fate of their ancestors benefited them.”
