It's Time To Get A Grip!

So racism is in our DNA according to the President.  Does he mean mine or his?

I have never seen such an emphasis on racial differences since the days of segregation than that which is being imposed on us by this administration from the President and former attorney general on down.

I'm sick and tired of it.  Ashley Banfield even suggested we dismantle the Jefferson Memorial.

Mitch McConnell wants the statue of Jefferson Davis removed from the capitol building in his home state of Kentucky.  Come on!  Taking down the stars and bars is bad enough since it means a lot other then black oppression to many in the south. But if it will help put out the fire, it's a relatively small price to pay.

But come on.  Every time something happens that involves blacks anyone who doesn't buy into the black version of events is labeled racist.  The newest one is that if you say all lives matter it's racist.  It has to be black lives matter.

Okay, the point is generalized here but so is what you get from the news. Along with overload. If you tell me I'm racist because I think Rachel Dolezal has a few screws loose so be it. What will you call me when I tell you I really admire The Wall Street Journal's Jason Riley and Dr. Ben Carson and Condoleezza Rice and the late Barbara Jordon?

There are problems, true, but trying to lay a guilt trip on us by those who have benefited richly because of their race is a cardinal sin. Going to the root of the problem isn't on their radar.

Destroying symbols of our history isn't going to change anything either.  What was was and there isn't anything that can erase it.  We can, however, move ahead and we have.  If racism is in Obama's DNA perhaps he is related to a slave trader from long ago Africa who sold his own people into slavery. There's definite culpability there.

How do you measure racism in DNA anyway?
