Yes, Our Children Can Be Friends with White People!

Yes we can be friends with white people

This article is in response to the New York Times Op-Ed Can My Children Be Friends With White PeopleIt’s written by law professor Ekow N. Yankah and is currently one of the top op-eds in the New York Times. I read this article and of course the title is meant for shock value and in the article itself he says not all white people are bad blah blah blah.  I am a gay black conservative/libertarian who voted for Donald Trump so my perspective is unique to this topic.

Same old divisive leftist diatribe

He talks about a friend is someone that is not only friendly but truly cares about your well being. I couldn’t agree more. A friend is someone that not only talks the talk but walks the walk with you which brings me to my point about the left. They do a good job (admittedly better than conservatives) at humoring Blacks into thinking that they are on their side, especially during election season, but their policies not only do little to nothing for Blacks but actually hurt us.

Case in point 1: Chicago & Illinois

Chicago is a democratic city in the solidly democratic state of Illinois. Conservatives have no voice in Chicago and little in Illinois. Let’s see how Blacks are doing in Chicago. Well, not only does Chicago have the highest Black youth unemployment with 50% neither working nor in school the entire state of Illinois it has the lowest black employment rate in the country according to the conservative Illinoispolicy.org 

This has lead to Chicago being one of the murder capitals of America.  Frankly despite all of our talk about police brutality (some of it valid) I’d be more scared walking down the streets in the south side of Chicago than I would in redneck country or around any police headquarters. This is course makes perfect sense everyone knows when you have young men–of any race–with nothing productive to do that means trouble. Frankly from what I’ve seen most black people aren’t worried about being friends with white people they’re more scared of other black people!

Let me take this moment to make it clear to my readers that yes black people want to work! It’s just that labor unions and liberals have driven away a lot of the jobs that were traditionally done by Blacks particularly Black men.  The research is clear and profound:

… for each 10 percent increase in the federal or state minimum wage employment for young Black males decreased 6.5 percent. By contrast, after the same wage boost, employment for white and Hispanic males fell respectively just 2.5 percent and 1.2 percent.-Young Black Men Are the First to Go with Minimum Wage Hike

Case in point 2: Texas vs California

Texas is often presented as the poster child of the right and California of the left. Both states are doing well macroeconimcally but if we dig just a little bit deeper we can see a clear victor on which state is best for the majority of its people.  Look at the map above. In California 54% of Black people have some form of work while in Texas it’s 60%. That’s not just a snap shot in time either. Employment for Black Texans is increasing at a steady rate and Blacks getting richer. Compare that to their brothers and sisters in California

Now lets look at everyone else

 

You see income growth for everyone has grown the most in the two largest red states according to the conservative Heritage Foundation. So much for the leftiest diatribe of conservatives voting against their own interests. To put it more bluntly according to the Sacramento Bee “California exports its poor to Texas”

There was really nothing left for me in California,” said Kundurazieff, who also writes a blog about his cats. “The cost of living was high. The rent was high. The job market was debatable.” Friends in Texas suggested he relocate. He now works at a Walmart in Houston, making a little north of $10 an hour. He works 40 hours a week, riding his bike about 7 miles to work many days. He does not pay state income tax. His rent is just over $500, with utilities.

He’s not exaggerating either. California unequivocally has the nation’s highest poverty rate. According to the center left Politico

We have the highest poverty rate in the nation — higher than New Mexico, higher than any of the southern states, Louisiana, Alabama, higher than Idaho.-Politico

Case in point 3: Camden New Jersey

The liberal solution to everything is throw more money at it and bigger government. Does that work though? New Jersey spends on average $20,385 per student to educate their students. Statewide, per-pupil costs ranged from a high of $60,129 in one small district, to $10,181 for a Jersey City charter school with 310 students. If the liberal formula of more money=better outcomes then New Jersey students should be darn near the top in academic performance. Well I think you know where this is going. In Camden New Jersey nearly half of all students graduate on appeal meaning they failed to meet the state’s basic standards to get a high school diploma according to the liberal NPR News.

While not a slam dunk vouchers and charter schools have proven to be a better option than traditional government run schools. So much so even the liberal Brookings Institute had to admit that:

Harvard, University of Wisconsin and Brookings studied programs in New York City, the District of Columbia and Dayton. African American children did much better on test scores having had advantage of a voucher program.

Can we be friends with white people or should we be friends with liberals?

The left loves to focus on questions of race and gender as those are divisive. Conservatives did the same thing with same sex marriage in the early 2000’s but both of these are the wrong questions. Which side is doing better for the most people? If we look at Blacks, economic freedom tends to benefit blacks the most.  Instead of asking if we can be friends with white people what the professor should be asking is ‘Should Blacks be friends with liberals?’ Based on his criteria of actually caring about our well being it seems to be liberals care in their rhetoric but not in their policies. The tide of economic freedom raises all boats while big government only benefits a select few; mostly government employees and their labor union bosses.

I can’t help but remember my mother used to always tell me:

The New Gay Agenda- Preference Shaming

The new gay agenda- preference shaming

Take a look at the popular gay blog Queerty. If you scroll down you’ll see their tagline “No agenda except for the gay one”. If you read their articles you’ll see what the gay agenda means to them. Right now it seems to be trying to make people feel bad for having sexual preferences.

Here is a video of a white guy bitching about racism in the gay community

According to Queerty

For a people bonded by feeling different, sometimes it seems like we’ve learned to be almost as mean as the people who made us feel being different was wrong in the first place.

Queerty

In another article they state:

71% of gay men said they are actively turned off by a prospective partner who demonstrates signs of femininity. Meanwhile, 29% said they saw more effeminate characteristics in men as a positive trait.

So what’s the takeaway from all this?

Well, it looks as though a large majority of these gay men harbor misogynist attitudes, which they seem to apply toward themselves and others.

Boo-fucking-hoo activists

There is a plethora of research to show that preferences are human and innate throughout the animal kingdom. According to Psychology Today.  Straight men have a preference for:

Youth

Long hair

Small waists

Blonde Hair

Blue Eyes

According to another article in the same publication straight women have a preference for:

Social status

Resources (money)

Height

Muscular physique

This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone that hasn’t been living under a rock their entire lives. What is shocking though is the liberal gay community seems to think preferences shouldn’t apply to gay men. When was the last time you saw an article on Cosmo Magazine trying to shame women for not being attracted to effeminate men? When was the last time you saw an article in Ebony magazine trying to shame Black women for having a preference for Black men? Hell I don’t even see lesbian publications trying to shame lesbians for have preferences. Full disclosure I don’t read lesbian publications.

Where does it stop?

I have a question to all those guys in the video that were crying because they didn’t get as much attention as they’d hoped on grindr. Have you ever rejected someone because you weren’t into them? Do you have preferences that you are attracted to or do you just accept anybody due to political correctness?  I have another question to all the PC lunatics. Are gay men sexist because they have a preference for men over women? Are tops ‘rolist’ because they have a preference for bottoms over tops?  Are bottoms ‘penisist’ because many of them prefer big dicks? Where does it stop?

Guilting people doesn’t work

Preference shaming or guilting people into dating someone they don’t like won’t work. Who wants to date someone that doesn’t really want to be with them? It’s just like the racial activists that try to guilt white men into dating people they aren’t attracted to. If you talk to communities of color, however, they do have preferences and many of them are racial preferences.  There are sites like gayblackproud.org that do nothing but celebrate black beauty and put black men on a pedestal. There gay Latino pride sites as well, GayLatino&Proud. Under the leftist logic are those sites not racist also for promoting the beauty of one race over another? I bet if there was gay white and proud site there would be cries to shut it down and it would be given the scarlet letter of ‘racist’.

The hypocrisy

I saved the funniest part for last. Many of those who feel slighted have the same preferences are those who are slighting them. The Problematic Gender Politics Between Masc and Fem Gays-Vice. Most effeminate men don’t want effeminate men themselves! In addition most of the racial activists that are whining about white men themselves want to date white men exclusively.  In other words they’re crying, screaming, and shouting at other people for having the same preferences they do. Nice.

Now let’s take a look at Queerty itself shall we?

Did you notice something? Did you notice that almost every other article has a feature image of hot white men with their shirts off? Now if they’re so anti-preference why would they do that? Is it because feature images of hot men with their shirts off are more likely to get clicks which translates into more $$ for Queerty? So much for being a publication of principles Queerty.

The truth

Now for the real bombshell. Gay people are actually more likely to date outside of their race than straight people. According to the Williams Institute a liberal think tank that studies trends in homosexuality.

More than one in five same-sex couples (20.6%) are interracial or interethnic compared to 18.3% of different-sex unmarried couples and just 9.5% of different-sex unmarried couples (see Figure 5). More than half of same-sex couples in Hawaii (53%) are interracial or interethnic (see Figure 6). About a third fit that category in California (33%), New Mexico (31%), and Nevada (30%). Other states where same-sex couples are likely to be interracial or interethnic include Alaska (28%), District of Columbia (28%), Oklahoma (26%), Arizona (26%), Texas (25%), and Colorado (24%). Less than 10% of same-sex couples are interracial or interethnic in Maine, Mississippi, Vermont, West Virginia, and New Hampshire, and Alabama.-The Williams Institute

This just goes to show it’ll never be enough for the activists. They’ll always need something to bitch about in order to make themselves feel important.

The real solution

We are who we are and we like who we like. If someone isn’t into you for whatever reason suck it up and move on. Sorry Sean not everyone is going to be attracted to you. The free market also has a solution. There are now apps specifically for specific niches in the gay community.  Growlr for instance is specifically for large and/or mature men and their admirers. The app does half the work for you since by being on that app you’re saying you’re into large and/or mature men. Black men tend to use Jack’d. If there is a market need I’m sure there will be an app for gay asian & latino men and their admirers as well. There are facebook groups specifically for gay men over 30 as well!

In short stop whining! If your life is a pile of shit then plant some seeds and see if you can make something grow out of it. Don’t try to shame others into rolling in it with you.
