On The Heels Of Oprah Butting Her Foot In Her Mouth
No pun intended...

Yet again, the ever popular race card is being played again... and yet again, those that scream racism the loudest are looking rather stupid. Again.

Here's some of a fascinating piece from TownHall.com; (emphasis mine)

Racial Hoaxes and the NAACP
By Walter E. Williams
Wednesday, December 12, 2007

Last May, firefighters at a Baltimore, Md., fire station came under scrutiny for displaying a deer with an afro wig, gold tooth, gold chain and a cigarette hanging from its mouth.

Marvin "Doc" Cheatham, president of the Baltimore chapter of the NAACP, went ballistic, charging, "There is now and has been a culture of racism and white supremacy within the Baltimore City Fire Department."

As it turns out, it was a black fireman who dressed up the critter. Cheatham refused to apologize for his accusations of fire department racism, maintaining "there is now and has been a culture of racism and white supremacy within the Baltimore City Fire Department."

On Nov. 21, a hangman's noose was found at the fire station with a note, "We can't hang the cheaters, but we can hang the failures. No EMT-1, NO JOB." The noose and note turned up on the heels of an investigation into allegations of cheating on the test that emergency medical technicians must take for certification.

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon, a black, in a written statement said, "I am outraged by this deplorable act of hatred and intimidation. Threats and racial attacks are unacceptable anywhere, especially in a firehouse." Doc Cheatham said, "We're going to demand that this be handled as a hate crime. This thing really needs to end here in Baltimore city." The incident prompted a federal investigation.

Last week, Donald Maynard, a black firefighter-paramedic, confessed to having placed the noose, note and drawing depicting a lynching on a bunk in the firehouse. City officials said Maynard was recently suspended, prior to his confession, from the department Friday for failing to meet requirements for advanced life-saving training. A spokesman for Mayor Dixon said there would be no criminal charges filed.

In response to Maynard's confession, NAACP President Cheatham still blamed white racism, saying, "It really saddens us to hear that evidently things have reached a stage that even an African-American does an injustice to himself and his own people as a result of a negative culture in that department."
Like I posted the other day, the best Oprah can do is to allude to racism, and look the fool all the while. Oh, and before anyone screams about how the author of this piece is a hard-core White racist, I have news for you... he's Black. Thank God Dr. Williams has the guts to expose the roaches and other assorted race pimps.

Walter Williams is a hero of mine, for speaking the truth to power when it comes to racial relations and intimidation.

His people?!

How would that have gone over from the mouth of a white man? Oh yeah, that would be racist.

Aren't we all American?

Oh, my mistake, we're 'multicultural' now.

I'm tired of being made to think racism is a white problem because it obviously isn't.
