Recalling the attempt to lynch Clarence Thomas

© 2019 Jim Spence - Dennis Prager is one of America’s great thinkers. He has been attempting to introduce sanity to the greater Los Angeles area for twenty years on his radio show. As hard as he has tried to help L.A. think clearly, the results are pretty mixed.
Prager wrote a column earlier this week that was quite profound. I’ll borrow from his piece and expand on it since my personal experiences confirm what he wrote.
Let’s try some thought experiments to get to the root of this horrible problem Democrats go on and on about. To hear Democratic Party candidates and the media speak, there is one horrific problem in America that goes beyond all other problems. The claims are simple. Because of widespread racism in America, oppression and subjugation of millions of minority members goes on and on. Yes, due to the awesome power of white people everywhere in America, who are almost all racists, minorities in America simply don’t have a prayer.
The problem is specific of course. According to Democrats, all white conservatives are racists. Amazingly, this pretty much encompasses about half the electorate. So, basically half of America is evil. In fact, according to Democrats, Mr. Trump was elected by people who are not only irredeemable, they are also deplorable, as all racists are.
Let’s see now. Let’s think about these damned racists. Racists are horrible people because they have a pathological dislike for people based simply on race. But most specifically, racists dislike and distrust all black people. This is not just one of the Democrat’s arguments; it is their fundamental claim about America.
Prager addresses this pretty amazing claim in a profound way. He says we should ask every white conservative who is undoubtedly according to Democrats, a racist, the following three questions:

1) Do you have more in common with, and are you personally more comfortable in the company of, a white leftist or a black conservative?

2) Would you rather have nine white leftists or nine black conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court?

3) Would you rather your child marry a black Christian conservative or a white non-Christian liberal?

Prager says he has posed these three questions many times, and Prager confirmed what I already knew. Every white conservative he has ever posed these questions to, has responded as follows:
1) They are MORE comfortable in the company of a black conservative. 2) They would prefer nine black conservatives on the Supreme Court, and 3) they would prefer that their child marry a black conservative than a white leftist.
When I read the Prager column, I was reminded of a fascinating conversation I had with a black leftist attorney from Houston, who was in town playing golf with me and one of my buddies. The topic was Clarence Thomas. This black leftist attorney told me that he thought Clarence Thomas was a terrible judge who made terrible rulings. My response was that I was sorry he had opposed the Thomas nomination, because I liked the Thomas judicial record. This man quickly corrected me. He told me he wanted Thomas to be confirmed on the Supreme Court.
“But you just said he was a lousy judge,” I said with a confused tone. He smiled and allowed as how the fact that Thomas was black was more important than his qualifications. I was stunned by this statement and I never forgot that exchange. It helped clarify for me where the most radical views on skin color were in America. They resided within the delusional minds of American leftists.
Let’s move on to Democrats and their claim of the horrible problem with whites oppressing minorities. It is best to consider the case of Rachel Dolzeal and Elizabeth Warren. Neither of these women are actually a member of any racial minority group. And yet both of these women are high profile examples of people who found it much more useful to be the member of a minority group than to remain “privileged white persons.” Apparently, these women saw so much advantage in claiming to be a minority member, they lied, and pretended to be one.
Going back to the Prager column, it is not surprising that Prager said he has never run into a white conservative who: 1) would not prefer the company of a black conservative to a white leftist, 2) who would not prefer nine black conservative justices like Clarence Thomas to nine white leftists like Stephen Breyer, and 3) who would not prefer his or her child marry a black Christian conservative than a non-Christian white leftist.
Anyone who interacts with conservatives regularly already knows all of these things. This not to say there are no racists. But racists are marginal members of our society not commonplace. And they wield almost no influence whatsoever.
But of course, Democrats understand this is not about truth, it is about power. And because Democrats control public education, the news media, and the entertainment industry, they must attempt to keep brainwashing all Americans with myths. They are compelled to ignore all of the facts about racism. Otherwise Democrats would not be able to toss the racist label around whenever it suits their whims.
What is fascinating is watching white leftists like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi get accused of being racists by others within their own party. Even Barack Obama accused Bill and Hillary Clinton of being racists in the 2008 primaries. Of course the same Obama endorsed and campaigned for the same despicable racist in 2016 when it suited his whims.
What a crock.
