Racism toward people who look like me!

Now that I know how many idiots are out there, I’ll start using smaller words. Oh, and a smaller part of my mind as well. Perhaps we can then take the debate to Diane Watson’s level so that she can be more comfortable with it.

I would wager that The Honorable Lady from California would agree that we should all keep our arguments on point and fight this fight on an equal playing ground. I just see one problem with that. I’m not a racist. But, since Watson wants to make this debate about race, let me introduce you to one. Then, Watson can make an informed decision regarding her race baiting tactics.

So, for the Honorable Diane Watson…here is a counter to your claims that those who disagree with health care do so with racism in their hearts. I tried to find adults to counter your arguments but I couldn’t find any who weren’t afraid of being branded a Lister of Blacks. But…one rather precocious 7 year old named Maggie has decided that she doesn’t mind injecting race where it has no business, our personal and private health care. So, here she is….Maggie: 7 Year Old Racist

Good morning!

My name is Maggie and I have a bone to pick with Diane Watson. She states that racism is behind the push AGAINST a government take-over of our health care system.

This may be hard for some to hear…but I’m of the mind that racism is behind the push FOR for the government take-over of one sixth of the nation’s economy.

I have no health coverage, I don’t take food stamps and I am not on the public dole. If I looked like Watson, I would have been raised in an atmosphere that promotes the knowledge required to learn to make a living off of the government. I was never taught how to apply for foods stamps, nor was I raised to believe that it was a good thing. Therefore, my white upbringing totally disenfranchised me from the welfare system.

Even public housing, some of which is available for $17 a month, is geared toward those who know how to manipulate the system. There is no race-neutral system available to help those of us who were taught to pay our own way. Why should I suffer because of parents who didn’t show me how to apply for federal housing…and worse…brainwashed me to believe that it was a BAD thing? How do I overcome years spent with a father who inculcated pride into my very psyche?

Subsidies, entitlements and yes…even health care are difficult to attain for people who look like me because we were raised in families who believed that we had to be productive members of society. Our parents, in their ignorance, believed that America would always help those who helped themselves and they expected us to “pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and try again”….every single time we fell! How can people who look like me ever stand a chance in a system created specifically for people who were raised to support the candidates who look like them?

Of course, our parents never prepared us for the option that there would be two lines…the line of people who work and the line of people who stand in line for a living, picking up the money dropped off by those who work. Right now I should be standing in some hand out line with a Walkman, a cell phone and my laptop. Instead, I’m left to sell my belongings to pay my way to a family member who can help take care of me because, once again, I have no knowledge of the free stuff available to me. People who look like me were never members of a culture raised to know how to get free stuff. Nor do people who look like me know how to ask for welfare without feeling like a failure. This unfair disadvantage keeps many who look like me out of the county welfare offices and that’s just not right.

As long as I’m under the influence of a father who taught us that racist concept of personal responsibility, and as long as I’m going to remain in need of food, medical care, housing and a person to help me during the day…I will have to figure it out without the help of the people in the working line.

And who’s to blame for this travesty? All of those people who don’t look like me think that people who DO look like me should pay for thier health care, whether or not we have health care of our own. Oh, and don’t forget, our racist administration has such disdain for the Founding Fathers (who looked like me!) that they are taking the list of rules that was created by they who look like me, and trying to hopscotch around them to create rights that have never been given to the Federal Government.

Even worse, they want to take the enumerated rights away from people who look like me…not by imprisonment…YET!…but by publicly accusing dissidents of moral, ethical, social and even legal violations. I guess they figure, “Why imprison them when it’s cheaper to simply create social deviants out of them?!”

Those who look like me are threatened with name calling of the worst kind should we attempt to offer our own ideas. Those who look like me were raised to resist joining the welfare system and as a result, we find ourselves in a state of despair when we need help because of how we look and of our upbringing. The racist welfare system has yet to find a way to teach those who look like me how to navigate the bureaucracy of hand-out programs and they certainly haven’t taught us how to overcome our sense of pride so that we can do so.

It’s time for those who look like me to speak out against the racism that has kept us out of the welfare system for far too long. With the racist administration trying to socialize so many of the needs of Americans, those who look like me must demand that the system become much more race neutral. Only then will true equality exist for people who look like me.

Well, as you can see, racial arguments abound. Maggie certainly doesn’t speak for all of the people who look like her and Diane Watson doesn’t speak for all of those who look like HER. But, far too many people are trying to muddy the waters for those who seek truth, justice and the American way. (Sorry, but I couldn’t resist the Superman reference.)

There’s one really bad thing about muddy water…you can’t see a thing in it.
