What Can I Do To Stem The Tide Of Racial Division That Obama Has Promoted?

April 17, 2012 1:35 pm 1 comment

I love today’s article in American Thinker by Lloyd Marcus; he is a Black, conservative patriot. I am a White, conservative patriot; and I am having the same troubling thoughts as Marcus is having.  What can I do to stem the tide of racial division that Obama and his crowd are stirring up and promoting in this country?

My husband coached for 36 years in Texas.  I was a classroom teacher for more than 33 years and taught in 14 different schools. I grew up in New Mexico, a melting pot of people, many from various Hispanic origins.

I served as a Presidential appointee to the National Commission on Migrant Education where I spent personal time traveling, studying, researching, talking, and doing site visits so that I could walk in the footsteps of migrants (mostly Hispanics) to better understand their needs.

My husband and our children have lived in areas in Texas where we as Whites were by far in the minority. We lived for four years on a street where every family but ours was Black. We still go to a diverse church.  Through the years, we have participated in numerous ministries for low-income groups. One of our dearest family friends who died of cancer was a precious Chinese woman; for months leading up to her death, I prayed with her daily.

We continue to have wonderful times with our lifelong, diverse group of friends and ex-students.  We have stayed in each other’s homes; attended baptisms, weddings, anniversaries, and funerals together; shared meals, beds, kitchen tables, back yards, and traveling experiences; and often share Facebook/social media times with each other.  Our neighborhood where we have lived for 23 years is very diverse with Blacks, Hispanics, Indians, and Pakistanis who live on our street.

Right now our grandchildren have best friends who are Black, Russian, Pakistani, Hispanic, Asian, etc.  We enjoy these teens as well as their parents.

I well remember in the mid 80’s when we teachers were first told to report our students by race. I literally had to look around my classroom to notice who was what.  Before that time, I only looked at my students as individuals with various learning styles; I never looked at them based upon race or ethnicity.


Because of our diverse friendships, I resent what Obama and his race-baiters are doing to our nation. Now I look in the eyes of our Black friends and wonder what they are thinking. Do they think we have pent up animosity and resentment toward them over the Trayvon Martin killing?  Do they think the same thing about us?

When Trayvon was killed, Obama jumped on this tragedy to fuel the flames and to promote race baiting to help drive Black voters to support his re-election. Sadly, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (2007) reported that 93% of murders committed against Blacks are perpetrated by other Blacks – not by Whites.

Obama’s plan to get re-elected is meant to fracture our nation; he believes in the maxim “divide and conquer.”  He has driven his entitlement mindset more deeply into our culture with more people on food stamps now than ever before in our nation’s history.

Then Obama attacked the Catholic church through the abortion and contraceptive issue in ObamaCare. This was actually an assault against the religious freedom promised to all Americans in the Constitution.

Next, Obama began to go after the women’s vote through his support for Sandra Fluke and her insistence that we taxpayers should pay for whatever sexual choices women make.  Obama wants his own daughters to follow in Sandra Fluke’s footsteps.

Obama’s next assault was to increase class envy against the wealthy by putting forth the bogus Buffett Rule.  Already the top 1 % of income earners pays 38 % of all federal income taxes; and the top 10 % of earners pays 70 % of the total taxes. Around 50% of Americans pay no income taxes at all!

What we must remember is that it is the wealthy in this country who have the capital and the entrepreneurship to create jobs for the rest of us.  If we increase their taxes, we actually take food out of our own mouths by lowering the chances that the wealthy will create jobs for us.

Had the Buffett Rule passed the Senate yesterday, it would have cut a miniscule 0.13% out of Obama’s $3.6 trillion annual budget. In reality the $47 billion impact would be so minimal that it would not even pay for a half a day of expenses incurred in operating Obama’s bloated federal government. Example of corruption: GSA’s wasteful spending of almost a million dollars at a Las Vegas convention in 2010.

The corporate cronyism of the Solyndra scandal, the gun trafficking scandal of Fast and Furious, and now the Secret Service prostitution scandal are all examples of having the wrong person in the White House.

Obama sets the standard; people just like him have been put at the top of every government agency. Now the cancerous growth of people who hold Obama’s same ideology is spreading across the entire government, and our nation is on the edge of spiraling out of control.


Back to the original question posited by Lloyd Marcus:  “What should I do?”  As stated by Marcus, “For now, until God leads me otherwise, I can simply continue doing what I, along with millions of my fellow Americans, do every day: seize every opportunity to spread racial harmony and kindness. I know that sounds corny, but I know it is the right thing to do.”

We can also do everything possible in our daily lives to help those around us to understand the seriousness of the upcoming elections. Our nation truly is hanging in the balance, and we as Americans hold the key to its future.  Every thinking American must vote; staying at home on election day is not an option!

  • Obama’s damage to this Republic goes over all lines, and areas. He has touched about all that life has in this nation and destroyed everything his muzzie loving hand touches. He is a socialist, a muzzie and both hate America. He will get his one day. The Lord said He would handle these types. That is a fact.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
