No More White Folks on Pedestals

The owner of the Portland Sea Dogs, a double A farm team for the Red Sox that is very popular in Maine, commissioned a statue to stand outside Hadlock Field, where the Sea Dogs play. The artwork consists of a normal family on their way to see a baseball game. Naturally, anything this wholesome will encounter resistance from moonbats.

The Portland Public Art Committee does not want to accept this generous gift. As committee member Jack Soley puts it, Portland already has enough ''white folks on pedestals."

According to the 2000 census, Portland is 91% white. The state of Maine is 97% white. Obviously the area needs more diversity. The figures in the statue should have been made to look like Eskimos, or maybe African pygmies.

But not all Maine residents are sufficiently enlightened to see it this way. Says Melissa Wolf of Scarborough:

I'm not racist, but there's nothing wrong with white people. Every city is different, and here, we're the majority. I don't see why diversity has to be shoved down our throats.

Notice how Ms. Wolf betrays her latent racism with the insensitive claim that there's nothing wrong with white people. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson had better head north immediately; they have work to do in Maine.

Hat tip: Tongue Tied

White folks on pedestals.

Wolf was definitely the WRONG person to speak on the issue. She's just as much a bigot as those who wish to stop the donation of the statue.

Um, those look like bronze folks to me. Am I missing something?

It looks like Dad is backhanding a frightened and innocence-pleading Junior. Meanwhile young and barefoot Janey and her squalling out-of-wedlock child look on, at last seeing her chance to grab Dad's wallet and score a $20 for nachos and a Coke before he can pull his pants up and chase after her.

Baseball: Fun for the whole trailer trash family!

Most of Portland is predominantly white anyway, hey the statue represents the people who live there, damm everything isn’t racism. the only thing I have against the commentary is what Melissa said at the end" why does diversity have to be shoved down our throats." poor baby she doesn’t know that the world is changing.....

Diversity IS being shoved down our throats ...
look at the politically correct laws..

you can "for example" wear a t shirt that says kill whitey or black pride or fuck da police,

BUT......wear anything that says white pride...what happens then?

Or what about black history month??
or the black entertainment channel?

Man would the pc mad bolshivicks in the media go INSANE if we had a white entertainment channel
Or white history month??

and yes the world is changing.....But not for the better..But things must become far worse before it can get better.

Next thing criticised will be how dare we have the statue of liberty looking so euro......
Sad really but if it takes the madness of the censors to open the eyes of the nation be it!

This isn't about logic this is about get whitey and whitey is sniveling. Let's put things in perspective. When blacks rioted in LA in the early 90's they got their way with their "no justice no peace." I wonder how it would pan out if whites did something similar with "No more diversity or no more peace." Or something similar? Think people would listen to violence instead of just words? Simple logic says VIOLENCE SOLVES EVERYTHING and the LA riots proved that... Or, would whites who rioted in a similar manor be ruthlessly gunned down with shoot to kill orders by the govenor? Let's see if history holds any clue to this. Anyone ever see the walk out from a Tennessee high school back when whites where forced to accept integration? There is a picture out there showing national guard troops with bayonets forcing teenaged whites to march back into their newly integrated schools. So I think the answer would be, if we rioted we'd be shot to death on sight. One rule for blacks/non-whites another for Whites.

Get use to it I guess.

So perhaps sir we snivel less.
And start to do more good deeds for our own, Stop rasing up the lower to a standard they can not maintain without us. start building euro communities where we grow our own food , build our own houses and advance our own knoledge!!

When we leave the maggot ridden corpses of the cities, law order and evolution will leave with us.

Parzifal, then they'd chase us down as White Escapees from diversity and force more of it down our throats and we'd just pick up and run to another corner only to be chased down again and again. Only way it would stop is if boatloads of diversity was thrown into the gated communities of our ruling oligarchs and it was burned down by them and White police officers refused to go into the areas out of fears of "being called racists." A nice protest like that seeing our oligarches getting a taste of fresh hot smoldering diversity would make them think twice when they realise we won't do for them what they won't allow us to do for ourselves.
