Ethnic Celebrations “Rage Against The White Man Component


I hope my friend Carl does not mind me reposting a comment he made. If you do Carl, let me know my friend. This is an incredible first hand account. I will let his words tell the story.

Carl says
“33 years in Miami Dade schools. The ethnic celebrations have always had a rage against the white man component. I spent my whole adult life in the Afro/American and Haitian communities teaching kids how to read and write and maybe a little history here and there as well. It hurt me more than insulted me and the hate is sanctioned by a county that is 80% minority and/or foreign born. Cursing out a white teacher with racial epithets is not seen as a punishable offense in many schools. I once heard a rabid “hate the white man”local NAACP woman address an entire auditorium of black kids saying George Washington was not to be revered as he fathered many slave children. Huh? George Washington had small pox when he was 10. He survived. It left him sterile. As a mason he would not stoop to such immorality in the first place.”

    Career advancement through cronyism, nepotism and the granting of sexual favors characterize the Miami Dade school system as well. It would be unfair, however, to omit that there are also examples of egalitarianism and interracial friendships and cooperation. I never got the race vibes toward me from the teenagers in my classes. Much of today’s generation is fairly color blind esp in the inner cities from my experience. But the overall contempt for whites was ever present. As the white population of this area has dwindled it is amusing to sit back and watch the minorities(now the majority) create new lines of contempt between themselves as the white guys are pretty much out of the picture. Politicians here are elected or defeated based on race, ethnicity and religion as well. Someday I want to live in a place where people know who Joe DiMaggio was. PS Mrs. Billy you can always reprint anything I say as long as not out of contest. I worked for Barry Goldwater in 1964 for 40 hours a week for 10 months and he taught me to say it if it needed to be said but never state untruths.By the way the first affirmative action entity in the history of the US was created by white men of the Republican Party. It was called the Freedmen’s Bureau and these same white men passed the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution.
