IT’S TIME TO DISBAND THE NAACP, THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, AND BLACK LIVES MATTER

The Congressional Black Caucus is a formidable bloc of lawmakers with a big say in the fate of President Donald Trump and his legislation. I’m OK with elected officials who want to impeach President Trump. I think it’s stupid, but it’s their right. But it should not be done by a group called the “Congressional Black Caucus” since it comes across as racial. In fact, there shouldn’t be a Congressional Black Congress because it’s divisive. If color and race are not supposed to be issues, then why are they made issues by those who claim color and race should not be issues? We won’t beyond race until everyone agrees to stop making everything about race.

I know the immoral history of slavery and the travesty of racial indignities and political oppression. But if we are going to get beyond our past by dismantling statures and memorials of a war that was fought over slavery, then it’s time we dismantle all remnants of that awful history. I’m afraid however, that those associated with the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, and other black sponsored special interest groups will be reluctant to make the change because there’s money to be made over race (Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for instance). As long as blacks are seen as an oppressed minority, there will always be people who will use that narrative to raise money.

For healing and unity to take place, all sides need to give up their attachment to the past. I’m not saying it will be easy, but it’s necessary. That way, those who are committed to unity can fight the baser elements in our society who stroke the fires of resentment. While fund-raising organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) publish maps of “hate organizations” in a claim to expose their definition of hate (anyone who opposes their very leftist worldview), they only fan the flames of division for political and monetary gain. The goal of those supporting the SPLC, for example, Apple, the Clooney Foundation for Justice, co-founded by J.P. Morgan, and because of a small group of nobodies who protested the removal of a stature of Robert E. Lee is only contributing to the division. These high-profile companies and people need to do some research on the SPLC. The organization’s goal is to keep the divisions hot. Like those “problem profiteers” in the Black community, the SPLC has been a problem profiteer for decades.

Most so-called “white people” are not racist, Neo-Nazis, or white supremacist. Many of us are descendants of immigrants who did not come to this country until the 20th century. We had no part either in slavery or segregation. The claim is made that even recent immigrants have benefitted from the slave labor of blacks. But so have blacks who were not slaves. Stoking the fires of division will only create more divisions. People don’t like to be called “racist” when they aren’t. You won’t find the SPLC going after a public school teacher who told his class. “To be white is to be racist, period” or when a black women gives a lecture declaring “ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST”. There’s no money in it, and it doesn’t fit the “hate” narrative of the left.

Racism is a one way street. Only white people can be racist. To say otherwise is to be a racist. Even the solar eclipse was made into a topic about race.

“It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people. Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system. It is a matter of population density, and more specifically geographic variations in population density by race, for which the sun and the moon cannot be held responsible.” (The Atlantic)

No, she did not say it was racist, as some sites declared. But was it necessary to bring race into an event that actually brought the nation together? Yes. Because the left needs to be a divisive topic to keep us divided. Money and power drive the division. Who are the losers? The people the “problem profiteers” claim to be helping. Tim Cook of Apple, the Clooneys, and J.P. Morgan just got snookered, and so have the American people.

Virtual Flight over Asteroid Vesta

Explanation: What would it be like to fly over the asteroid Vesta? Animators from the German Aerospace Center took actual images and height data from NASA’s Dawn mission when it visited asteroid Vesta a few years ago and generated a virtual movie. The featured video begins with a sequence above Divalia Fossa, an unusual pair of troughs running parallel over heavily cratered terrain. Next, the virtual spaceship explores Vesta‘s 60-km Marcia Crater, showing numerous vivid details. Last, Dawn images were digitally recast with exaggerated height to better reveal Vesta‘s 5-km high mountain Aricia Tholus. The second largest object in the Solar System‘s asteroid belt, Vesta is the brightest asteroid visible from Earth and can be found with binoculars. Using Vesta Trek, you can explore all over Vesta yourself.
