HuffingtonPost.com,October 9, 2009

“Kill Obama” was spray painted in purple on campaign signs at two locations in Cave Creek, a suburb of Phoenix, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO).

“This is a complete disgrace and gross act towards our president,” said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, “My deputies are looking into all avenues of the incident, and it is a top priority.”

Neither campaign sign is connected to national politics. One supports a measure that would allow Walmart to open a location in Cave Creek. The other supports a school budget increase to lower class sizes for kindergarten through third grade.

According to MCSO, there are currently no known suspects or witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call MCSO at 602-876-1011.

The Phoenix area has had a run of high-profile racist incidents recently. Last weekend, an interracial couple was gunned down while walking through a park last weekend after a stranger with a shaved head and tattoos asked the African-American man why he was “with a white woman.” Residents of Fountain Hills, another Phoenix suburb, were terrorized recently by racist vandalism that included anti-Semitic and pro-KKK imagery.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which regularly tracks hate groups as part of its mission, says hate groups are growing in Arizona. Two national Nazi events are scheduled to be held in the Phoenix area in the coming weeks: a national Nazi festival in Tonopah in October and a national neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement rally in early November.And a national Neo-Nazi festival is scheduled to be held in Tonopah, another suburb of Phoenix, on October 24th.

I find it funny that these incidents are not reported in the news, but then again :roll: ...
...what do you expect from a state that chose not to celebrate MLK's b-day. I don't even find it surprising that there is actually a fucking calender that has these people scheduled to hold rallies in parts of the state.

That's because with the media being a majority white owned enterprise,that would mean that they have to actually police them selves,and expose their own for being as racist as the rest of america has known that they were the whole time,that would mean that white america would actually have to take a long look in the mirror and come to terms that they really are racist,and that it's not just an exaggeration.

White America? Or White Racists denying that they are racists? I dont know any racists.. and most of my friends are white.

I know that the areas people live in have a lot to do with what types of cultural difference (hence viewpoints on race etc...) you may run into. For example: In Baltimore city, black on white racism is high, but in Glen Burnie maryland, white on black racism is predominate. In Pikesville maryland, black and white racism is unheard of, but anti-semitism is very high. In Towson maryland, black on arab racism is high. In Anne Arundel County, however, there is a decent amount of non-violent, yet white on black racism.

The most logical explanation is that since white is the majority, then obviously you will here of anything white being predominate. To further this example, and without research, I could logically conclude that white people probably hold a majority interest in Computers in America, play more baseball or sports then any other race in America, or .. sing then any other race in America. It is not because they are white, but rather, because there is such a greater deal more of whites, then any other race.

No one collective race really has to look in a mirror and say "I am a racist." That is just bogus, because even if they do this, then no one is going to believe them anyway, because no one believes them when they deny that they are racist. To expound on this, if a white man is not racist, and looks in the mirror and says "I am racist," are you then going to accuse him of being a liar?

Conclusion? The best thing anyone can do, is judge only themselves, and to treat others the way that they would want to be treated. Love your neighbor in other words. We have to accept that each of us will deal with something horrible eventually, and hope and try to not allow it to happen to one another. I know that you believe these things as truth, so we are brothers. No one is silly enough to say that racism is limited to only one race, because they completely contradict their argument!


ps.

I think that the only conclusion with the purpose of writing "Kill Obama," that we (who do not know the person who did this, or factually why,) relate its meaning to the type of propaganda we watch and read. For example, If you watch tons of anti-gov vids and read the same type of literature, then the first thing that is going to come to your mind when you see "Kill Obama," is "oh, the writer must hate Obama's handling of government. On the flip side, if you watch lots of racial propaganda, then you are going to see "Kill Obama," and naturally assume, "Oh, the writer must hate Obama because he is black."

Therefore, I think that the deepest any of us can go, if we do not know the writer of this hateful statement, is that.. "for one reason, or another, this person hates Obama." What does it mean if you get all of these people to believe that the write of this statement was racist, when in fact, he just hates Obama's policies to the point of wanting him dead? It might not make the writer any less hateful, however, it does add to the spreading of misinformation.

Perhaps the reason this particular story isn't being reported in the national news is not because of the mainstream media's fear of addressing its own racial biases. Perhaps it's because the story is about exactly two signs in a local election being vandalized. It's not exactly a big news event.

And the mainstream media does occasionally report on these kinds of stories. The national Republican party, for example, has complained about the fact that racist emails sent out by a handful of the relatively unimportant people who work for state and local Republican groups sometimes becomes national news, smearing the whole party in the process. So nah, the news media has no problem reporting on white racism--hell, look at all the fun they had with Rush trying to become a part owner of the Rams. Besides, come to think of it, the Huffington Post is very much a part of "the media," and even "the mainstream media." Watch MSNBC and count how many commentators are introduced as "contributors to the Huffington Post."

Furthermore, I just don't think there's any logic to the argument that because the media does or does not report on a certain story or group of stories, the whole of white America needs to admit anything to itself. White people are not anything close to a monolithic group. And treating them as such is an example of the same sort of intellectual laziness that leads news organizations to use people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson as stand-ins for the entire Black community whenever there's some contentious racial issue.


Peace

point:....it's the racist white folks that concern me. to lump a whole group into one bundle and labling it can muddy up the message. this is true. blacks have been in that predicament before. many a times.
The context of which this particular post is pertaining to may be wrong, but you cannot tell me that this shit does not at least raise an eyebrow. if this happened with Bush...people will go missing, labeled a terrorist, or their livelyhood taken...i.e. Dixie Chicks...

Yeah, I can get with what you're saying. But I try not to worry too much about racists, per se. If you want to think that I'm inferior on the basis that my skin is darker than yours, that's fine. You can think whatever you want. I just think that what a person does with that belief is more important than the belief itself.

Furthermore, I don't think racism is the most dangerous thing right now. I think that the idea that Obama or Pelosi or whoever are fascists, that Census workers are a threat to freedom, that global warming is a hoax, that health reform means possibly denying coverage to conservatives and killing the elderly or whatever...I think that kind of talk is a lot more dangerous than whatever racism may be bubbling up.

I should say that a lot of the crazy is related to racism, though. There'd be no birthers, for example, if Hillary Clinton were the Democratic nominee. But I suppose the crazy being a big part of the discussion also has a lot to do with the fact that there's no moderate wing of the Republican party anymore.

I don't know man...we're living in weird times.


Peace
