Keeping Racism Alive

Manny is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, May 13, 2015. Our pious friend, Mantis Manny is at the breakfast table this morning. Manny has been around a long time and witness to a lot of things over the years. He has seen our country come to terms with racism and make astounding progress when it involves extending freedom to people of all races and religions. We will always have room for improvement, but it seems that we are now sliding backwards to a troubled time in our nation's past. Manny has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. He is preparing breakfast burritos and home fries. I will add to the deliciousness by mixing up a decadent batch of Bloody Marys. We hope to see you soon.

Delivering the Wrong Message

Thank you all for joining me this morning. When I was a young bug i clearly remember the anger and frustration I felt when I saw young black men and women in the south being treated like dogs. We have come a long way since those times. No better example of that progress can be made than that of Barack Obama who became president after a good speech and precious little else. I sometimes wonder if he won the election out of the nation's sense of collective guilt about the past. Whatever the reason, his election should have ushered in an era of racial peace. Instead, the reverse has taken place. It is not coming from disgruntled whites who yearned for the old days, but rather it is coming from members of the black community who are stirring up tensions and keeping the flames of hatred alive. It is no surprise to anyone that Rev. Al Sharpton is a leader in this area. The man practically salivates when a black person is killed by a white officer or anyone in authority. That is his bread and butter. Things take on a totally different meaning when the first black president in the history of this country joins in the fray and ups the racial ante.

Through a Jaundiced Lens

President Obama has spoken out too many times about local issues that involve black and white violence. He jumped into these situations before he even knew the facts. I guess he just couldn't help himself. Apparently, Al Sharpton and the president have a close and cordial relationship. Al may just be another one of Obama's mentors and that can't be a good thing. Now the First Lady has joined the chorus of disgruntled blacks who according to Michelle Obama have been frustrated and invisible for decades. Frankly, I can't help but wonder how much more anyone could be visible than Michelle in her role as First Lady. Her message to students at Tuskagee University in Alabama should have been one of inspiration and encouragement. Instead, Ms. Obama chose this occasion to urge young black students to remain involved in civic life during these times of tension in race relations. She forgot to mention her role and the role of others in keeping the tension alive. She reminded the students about systemic discrimination. She reminded them about their "nagging worries that they are going to get stopped or pulled over for absolutely no reason." This is what I call a missed opportunity. I don't think she did the students a favor. She could have used the moment to encourage them to be the be the best they can be, because all things are possible in this nation. The messaging went the way it has been going for six long years, and that is a complete and dangerous use of time.

Teaching Racism

Saida Grundy is a newly hired Boston University professor who tells her students and everyone else via Twitter that white males are a problem population. She teaches African-American studies, so I think it is fair to assume that she is happy to be teaching her students how to be racists. Boston University is defending their decision to hire her, because they say she is entitled to free speech. I guess by the time these students graduate, BU will have produced another generation of racists so the racial divide can widen and endure.

Enforcing Racism

The current climate in this country is teeming with racism. Suddenly black Americans are angrier than ever despite quantum leaps in public and social policy. The Freddie Gray case is a perfect example of people in power using their position to add to the tension. Marilyn Mosby is Maryland's State attorney. Her rush to judgment in the Gray case may just come back to haunt her. As an officer of the court she betrayed her oath to protect the rights of all citizens. She topped off her unprofessional behavior by appearing on stage with Prince during an ode to Freddie Gray. This incident has been tainted in so many ways that I just can't imagine how a fair trial can take place in Baltimore. We are now a nation ruled by mobs. I have a very strong feeling that things are going to get much, much worse. Let Us Pray.....

Pop and Manny,

It is hard to believe that the racial tension can flare up again in 2015. It seems like 1960 Alabama's again. If our first black president can't preside and provide some racial harmony what chance do we have?


taxlarry 16 months ago

People have always protested in this country. Dr. King promoted peaceful protest. We no longer see many peaceful protests. What we have are riots. Proponents of riots? Obumma, Manchelle, Rev Al, etc. Good job, folks.

Good morning bug lady. We must keep in mind that nobody is born a racist. This is a learned behaviour taught by parents, peers, or other outside influences.

The first black President of this country had the opportunity to really help improve race relations for this country but took the opposite track. He and some of his administration have set back race relations by many years. Al Sharpton profits from racial hatred and goes out of his way to keep things stirred up, yet he serves as a adviser to Obama?

The city of Baltimore has received many Millions of tax dollars to make things better but the money was either stolen or wasted. If money is not the answer to improving race relations than we should try other methods.

The first step would be to make sure our elected leaders are not racists who will fan the flames at every opportunity. People such as Sharpton should be banned from even entering the White House let alone helping to make things worse.

It will take years to regain the ground we have lost regarding racial divide after this administration leaves office.

Dear Mike,

It will certainly take years and you can bet that the Obama's will be at the forefront of all the unrest that is to come. The MSM praised Michelle for her very personal speech to the graduates. That makes me sick. Michelle grew up in privilege, went to an Ivy League school and doesn't know a fig about poverty or despair. It is big business for the Obamas, Sharpton, Holder and so many, many others. See you at the Inn.

"United we stand; divided we fall."

All of those fomenting racial unrest, both black and white, have a goal in mind, and that goal is political power. All of the players have one thing in common, and that is political liberalism. All of those being mentioned as participants in the race business just happen to be liberal Democrats.

If liberal Democrats can divide Americans into political camps, like black vs white, men vs women, rich vs poor, etc., (sound familiar?) then they can "Fundamentally Transform the United States of America" into something our fathers before us would not recognize.

Barack Obama, who famously promised to be a uniter, is instead, the most divisive president I've ever seen. It's no accident that he's stirring the pot. It's intentional because there's a goal and a purpose.

Of course you are right. Michelle Obama's speech to the graduates at Tuskagee was designed to keep the students on edge and divided. The school was founded by Booker T. Washington who would have been appalled by her words and the actions and words of her husband and his pals. He could not tolerate those that used negative words to keep the races apart.

big daddy oreo 16 months ago

You have to understand breakfast pop a black person or one who appears to be black can protect you from black racism much better than a white person can. I think that is why white people struggle. They don't have a black voice to help them. All these white women who have black boyfriends are going to be protected from black racism. Whenever you see a white guy or guys hanging with black guy or guys those white guys will be protected.

99.9 percent of black people will not mess with you if you have a black male with you. In fact you will likely gain more black friends. That is why I want to go undercover as a black man because I know I can protect white people from racism if I was black. I hope they invent the double dark chocolate tan.

big daddy oreo 16 months ago

What up breakfast pop.

Black on black crime happens in really bad ghettos. A white person would not last 5 minutes in some neighborhoods where black people live. The stats are very deceiving. But I will say it is much safer for black people in white majority areas.

Black skin is like a monster truck. White skin is like a car. A monster truck is better for protection than a car. But if you drive the monster truck wrecklessly and take it on dangerous roads such as I 95 or country roads at high speed you put yourself at risk. And if the driver of the car drives carefully and drives on safer roads the auto accident stats may indicate that a car is safer than a monster truck. But that would tell a lie.

the black skin man who has all this protection from black skin is at risk because many black males go to prison and live in dangerous neighborhoods. If these black men were white they would be much more at risk safety wise. Also black people run their mouth more. But black skin protects them. If they were white they would be more at risk.

the black man has more job protection. But more black people no show and go off on their white bosses which gets them fired. Black skin would protect white bosses from discrimination law suits. Black skin would protect all the white policemen. And if freddie gray was white no one would care.

black skin is a shield.

White skin not good for protection.

black people are more reckless

white people are more careful

As long as there is money involved, the Al Sharpton's of the world will continue to spew their hatred to everyone who will listen. It is my opinion that Sharpton is one of the most evil people on earth who promotes racial hatred for personal financial gain. If he ever goes to jail for his tax evasion the world will be a better place.

The visual of Sharpton behind bars brings a smile to my face. Sharpton belonged in jail years ago for the harm he caused in the Tawana Brawley case. Maybe when and if Obama leaves office he will join forces with Sharpton. What a team! Enjoy the rest of the week-end and see you at the Inn.

I will ask all the youtube listeners do they know if it is possible to change racial apperance to black. Then I will tell them all the benefits of black skin. And they are

1. Black skin makes you look stronger

2. Black skin makes you look younger

3. Black skin is a hit with the ladies

4. Black skin is good for interracial relations in my opinion. It is much easier for a black man to make friends white people and get white women than vise versa.

5. Black skin reduces your chances of getting robbed in my opinion.

If we could find a pill that would turn everyone in the world purple, our problems would still not be solved. We are dealing with human beings so we would find something to fight and argue about.

Short people would hate tall people. Obese people would hate skinny people. The poor would still hate the rich and on, and on, and on. That is just the way humans are and nothing will ever change in that regard.


WillStarr profile image

WillStarr 16 months ago from Phoenix, Arizona

Mike is correct of course. But on top of our natural inclinations to bicker, we have activists fomenting strife for political purposes. I have no doubt at all that people like the Obama's, the Sharptons, and the Jesse Jacksons are stirring up racism for a reason, or perhaps more accurately, each for his own reason.

But I don't think any of them have considered the unintended consequences.

Dear Will and Mike,

I'll say one thing, the nation would be better off without the likes of the Obamas, Sharptons and Jacksons. I could go on, but it would take days. The black community needs real leaders willing to tell the truth and lead by example. I suppose in a sad way it is easier to follow a fool like Sharpton who only demands that you riot on cue. See you at the Inn. I trust that Big Daddy will not be in attendance!

Will starr,

I am dumber than a box of rocks when it comes to computers. I need someone to work side by side with me to help me. But I do have ocd and I have been obsessed with race for many many years.

Please believe me when I say it would help white people tremendously if they had some street savvy, smooth talking white men go undercover as black men to attack black issues.

a black teacher can motivate black students

a black boss can get more productivity out of black employees

a black policemen can reach out to troubled black youth

black people won't do it so go undercover as a black man and do it for them. Make a career out of it.


big daddy oreo 16 months ago

Old poolman,

It would not solve all the problems but there would be a lot of progress. If you take white bosses and teachers and policemen and have them go undercover as black men I guarantee you they could go more out of black people. Black people respond to color. Watch the movie lean on me. Based on a true story. Coach carter ditto. I think Republicans should have had Herman Cain run against Obama. The reason being it is much easier for a black person to get white votes than vise versa. Obama would not have gotten as many black votes or white guilt votes vs herman cain.

I noticed if you have a black male with you black people are more friendly towards you and treat you like a brother. I think it would help white families to have 2 black males per family. Atleast by appearance. Black skin is very good for protection in america. Black skin will keep you safe in prison. If you have to live in a rough neighborhood black skin can give you an edge.

Most black men are high risk takers. That is why they have their issues. For example. You are less likely to get robbed if you have black skin. But if a black man does get robbed he is more likely to put up a fight which can turn deadly. White males usually do all the right things. It is their white skin that puts them more at risk. Black skin is like a personal bodyguard in america. Trust me.

Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 16 months ago from Rural Arizona

Big Daddy - There are those of all races who choose to bad mouth those of other races. This is not just a black/white issue. Being prejudiced is a learned behaviour. Nobody is born a racist, they are taught to be racists.

There will always be cultural differences between those of different race and even different countries. Until parents, teachers, and people like Sharpton quit preaching hatred this will never go away.


big daddy oreo 16 months ago

Old poolman,

you should check out that video also. I live in an area that is approx 20 percent black. Maybe 18 percent. Somewhere in that ball park. They have quite a few ghetto black people in my area. But I noticed black people work harder for black bosses and do not disrespect black security guards very often.

I am not saying that every black person is going to work harder for a black boss or a black teacher but it is much more likely. Crime is more economics. There will always be plenty of black crime I just think that a black law enforcement team could talk some sense into some black criminals.

I do not want to punish white bosses or cops or teachers. Almost all bosses and such are white. It would be nice if some of these white authority figures could go undercover as black. White people do complain about black people not being productive. I noticed the few black bosses I have had had very little trouble motivating black employess. Those black employees worked their butts off for the black bosses.

I just talked to a former white grocery manager I used to have. He agreed with me 100 percent. He is still a grocery manager in another lcoation. He agrees black people work harder for black bosses. And that his superior managers would not mess with him as much if he was black. Black skin gives you more job security.


big daddy oreo 16 months ago

Old poolman

I just got your new comment. If Ksi would have spoken to a black man like that he would have gotten put in his place real quick. Most likely. If you have a black male with you people like that will not usually mess with you.

I had a close black friend who was racist. I want to stand before him as a black man really bad. I want to brag about how I am the white mans bodyguard. How I will use my blackness to motivate black employees. That will be my retribution.

me telling all white people this information is apart of my retribution. I gave whitey the keys to victory in this fued.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 16 months ago from Rural Arizona

Big daddy - I don't see these racial issues as being a feud. It it is a small minority of our population who miss no chance to fuel the fires of racial hatred. Some of them profit from this hatred, and others use it to explain their mostly self-caused failures in life.

I still have many black friends I served with in the Army. That was over 50 years ago and those of us who are still alive maintain regular contact. I also have many friends who are hispanic, and I appreciate their culture.

Those who refuse to associate with people of other races and cultures are missing a great deal that would add value to their own lives.

The fact is that if your are not black now, it is highly unlikely you will ever be black. I'm not sure where you are trying to go with this dialog. There will always be racists because someone made them that way.


big daddy oreo 16 months ago

Old poolman,

You are right that most likely I am stuck being white. I am not super rich or have any connections. But there are some wealthy white men who might be able to change their skin color to black. The book black like me had someone do it.

The hub is about the baltimore riots and it sure would help the situation if the white police could change their appearance to black. I know it would not be perfect but it would help a lot. The racial tension between police and some blacks must be pretty high. There is a lot of history. If the police could change their appearance it would give them a fresh start.

big daddy oreo 16 months ago

Breakfast pop,

The picture that I saw was 3 white cops arresting mr. Grey. I can assure you all that rage is directed towards white policemen. The riot police I saw was about 20 white cops and maybe 1 or 2 black cops. A place like Baltimore should be 110 percent black cops.

I always felt like the Republican party should have put Herman Cain up against Obama. Do you think Herman Cain would have been the right one?

I have a feeling Martin Luther King Jr. Would have been thrilled that Obama won. Unless king was a Republican. Even then he still probably would support obama.


big daddy oreo 15 months ago

I feel sorry for young white people today. They are automatically labeled the oppressor. Even though some whites are oppressed themselves. I noticed in the auto commercials they always make the white guy look weak and black guy look strong.

One advantage white people have that black people never had is they CAN change their kids race. If a white woman and a white man want their kids to be black they can get a sperm donation from a black man at the hospital or a white woman can choose a black partner. So if white people feel like they would get treated better if they were black they do have options. Atleast for their kids. I hear you can get into college easier.

Good Morning big daddy,

big daddy oreo 15 months ago

Breakfast pop,

As far as democrats keeping blacks needy and asking for more. I think the main issue that people over look is most jobs do not pay a living wage. And not only that most companies are greedy and only want to work you part time and give you no benefits or crappy benefits. People who get money from the government actually get better medical benefits than some of the people working!

I can not say this enough I think it would help tremendously if there was more black faces in management positions. If black people see this they will have the attitude that they can move up with the company. Others may go out of their way to work hard for a brother if you know what I mean.

I have discussed race with several black friends over the years. I kind of have an idea of how most black people think. My opinions on race are very credible. I live in an area that is probably 18 pecent black. We have are share of rebellious black people. Trust me when I say black people have a close bond with people that share their skin color. That is why a black face person has such a good chance to motivate them.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 15 months ago from Rural Arizona

Big Daddy - The single biggest reason for people only getting part-time work is Obamacare. The rules of Obamacare state that employees working less than 30 hours per week are part-time employees and not eligible for the mandatory insurance. This rule leaves the employers off the hook to provide medical insurance or to pay the fine for not doing so.

I would think that anyone who read this rule could have figured out exactly what would happen when it went into effect.

Employers immediately cut many employees to 29 hours per week and hired a few more part-time employees to fill in the holes. This made the unemployment numbers look good because they don't break out part-time vs full-time jobs. It was a win/win for the government but a lose/lose for the employees.

Many of those who were previously uninsured but got Obamacare still can't go to the doctor because they can't afford the co-pays. Any idiot should have been able to see that this was going to happen.

But then very few even got to read the Obamacare bill before it was voted on, so they just shoved it down our throats. This bill is a total disaster for people of all races.

Now let me ask you this. Do you think a company with all black management who only hired black employees would be successful? Wouldn't that be reverse discrimination?

Hey, anything is worth a try.


big daddy oreo 15 months ago

Old poolman,

no you are not wasting your time. I know about obamacare. Basically everything sucked before obama got into office and obama made it worse. The pay and part time has always been an issue obamacare made it go from bad to worse. Things seemed like they were so much better when bill clinton was in office. Even though i was in high school. Jmo.

The black management is designed to help white people get more out of black employees. It really is a shame you can not have a group of white managers go undercover as black managers and stick them in businesses where they have a lot of rebellious black employees.

I have 5 managers where I work at. All white. They have diverse employees. But they have a few rebellious black employees. And the white managers act like they are afraid to do anything about it. They are afraid of the race card probably. It would be nice if they could take maybe 2 of those 5 white managers and have them go undercover as black managers. That way they could go after those black employees without dealing with race card bs. Lets face it america has no shortage of rebellious black employees. I think a black boss could help. It would be nice if they could take some white bosses and have them go undercover as black bosses.

I think it is bs if a white person criticizes obama they are considered a probable racist. If a white cop pulls over a black person for speeding it is racist. Hank Williams Jr. Getting fired for stupid stuff. But you know what? If the white community had several men go undercover as black men they could have them call out obama or try to address black crime or motivate black employees or students.

That is one reason I would love to be black is because you can just tell it like it is without dealing with the bs. I would be willing to spend 50 dollars a month to be black. Or 5 thousand straight up to be a black man for the rest of my life. I am not rich so that is the best I could do.

Dear big daddy,

The black community needs black leaders who can tell it like it is. Everything is not a racial issue and it is time the black community got the message. People like Sharpton and Obama are using them as pawns.

Big Daddy - Perhaps in the next life you will be lucky enough to be born black and you can straighten out some of this racial mess we are in.

Breakfast pop,

If whites could go undercover as black they could easily improve the situation. That has a better chance of happening than blacks doing it.

Old poolman,

I think they could take a white man and disguise him as a black man if they wanted to. I am only smart at understanding how black skin can help the white man.

it would take more than one oreo to make a difference. If I was disguised as a black man right now I would be more vocal. I would tell my white managers my idea. I might tell some white police.

I have told some people my idea and there are a few who think I am a genius. They think I really am on to something.

I am only willing to change my skin color if it is safe, easy and affordable. Most likely a dark chocolate tan. I walk in to the tanning bed get a black custom air brush every month or so cut off all my hair. My eyes are already brown.

Dear big daddy,

Go for it

Breakfast pop,

in the year of 2011 and 2012 I really did go on a search. I called a few plastic surgeons none of them ever heard of such a thing. I bought a can of spray tan and tried it on my legs and it did not even come close to black. It was a 40 dollar can. I admit I am scared it could go wrong. Look at Michael Jackson.

My family is also 100 percent against me doing it. They think I am nuts. But in 2011 my uncles white friend who was a manager got fired over racial politics. He lost a 100 thousand a year paying job. Black skin most likely would have protected him. I knew right than that it was time to go on a search. But my family got real upset. Plus I could not really find anything.

I think a fake tatoo or a dark chocolate tan is my best chance. But I will try it on my legs. A body part that is covered. That way it is not exposed if it does not turn out right. The last try was a failure.

I would not get my hopes up if I were you but never say never either. Sadly my loved ones parents and grandparents will get real upset if I do it. But if something happens in which a family member needs a black bodyguard it would be nice to know I can be that guy.

Big Daddy - Good luck to you in your search for a way to become black. I don't think modern science has yet developed a way to grant your wish.

I wish I could have the body of a 20 year old and the mind of a man in his 70's. But that, like changing my skin color, is not possible either.

Perhaps you could devise a different plan to help others while wearing your white skin. You could write some blogs to expose those such as Al Sharpton and others who profit from racial divide.

Honestly, I am at a loss for words.

Dear Mike,

You are far more helpful than I am.


big daddy oreo 15 months ago

Tell me this old poolman. If there was a secret safe affordable and easy way for a white man to temporarily disguise himself as a black man and only the police and military and FBI knew about it do you think with the way the white police are getting hung out to dry right now that they would use black skin to shield them from racial politics? If it was possible?

Old Poolman 15 months ago from Rural Arizona

No, I don't think so. As evidenced in Baltimore, the black skin didn't help the black cops that were arrested with the white cops.

I think your at the end of a dead-end road with this one Big Daddy.

Amen.......

Old poolman and breakfast pop,

Okay. I have another intersting question for you. More and more white women are choosing to have babies with black men. That makes the child black by rule. So my question to you guys is do you think that some of these white women are choosing black partners so that their children will have the benefits of affirmative action? Not to mention a get out of jail free card for slavery?

Btw that is one guaranteed way to get to the black side. There could be a white couple and they could choose to ask a close black male friend for a sample of his seeds to make the baby. People donate sperm for money all the time at hospitals. The father has to be black. The father determine the race of baby. George Zimmermans dad was white. That is why the media treated him like a white man.

Thank you guys for hearing me out. I really want to help white people. I have discussed race with black friends over the years and feel very strongly about my opinions.

I feel like white males have deal with a lot more bull crap and racism than black males. I want white people to know that atleast their children can be black. Look at obama. His mama was white and just by choosing a black partner her son is loved by black people. All it took was one black mans seeds. Her son is not guilty for slavery. He is protected by black skin.

if I ever had a son he would be protected by black skin.

Dear big daddy,

The truth is that the black community feels that Obama let them down....


big daddy 15 months ago

Breakfast pop,

He did let black people down. And me too. Bill Clinton was much better than Obama. I thought Bush was for the rich.

Dear big daddy,

Obama is there for himself and his socialist friends.

I do not think that Hank Williams Jr or Donald Sterling would have been fired if they were black. Bill Cosby gave black people a lecture and he never got fired or sued. I noticed that black comedians can say things about black people that white comedians probably couldn't. There may be some truth to what Big Daddy Oreo is saying.

Dear Brian,

There is always a bit of truth in most instances, but surely Big Daddy can apply is beliefs in a more realistic and productive way.

Breakfast pop,

You guys were wrong it is possible. The president of the naacp is a white lady disguised as a black lady! Wow! I just found out I am so excited! I still don't have details on how she did it.

I was at work talking to a coworker who wants to be a cop. I told him my idea and he agreed with me. He is the one who told me about naacp lady. He said he would be willing to go undercover as a black cop if they asked him. Today was a productive day.

I am just happy to know that one day my dream may come true. God may bless me with something I don't need but would love to have. I can be a hero to all my fellow whites. It won't make the news but I will be working hard behind the scenes.


big daddy oreo 15 months ago

I am sure you heard about church shooting 9 blacks murdered by 1 white. The media is very biased. They only report it when a white person kills a black. It is very rare. Nobody cares when a white guy gets murdered. They always make the whitd guy out to be the bad guy.

Thank god for Rachel Doelzal. She showed the world that white people don't have to deal with it anymore.

Dear Big Daddy,

Rachel is a very screwed up lady and most of all a liar. She is paying the price for her lies right now.


big daddy 15 months ago

Breakfast pop,

she is unethical. But she is not mentally unstable. I investigated and in my opinion she did it so she could use affirmative action to get through college. Then she made a career out of it. The only thing is she lied on her application.

Dear big daddy,

I think she has a screw loose, but that's just my opinion.
