NPR: Minorities Can't Help Being Criminals, It's Just the Way Those People Are

National Public Radio, the state-run media outlet that uses taxpayer money to finance propaganda for the left wing, has an explanation for the bad behavior of ACORN employees: Poor people from the inner cities are just naturally inclined toward criminal behavior.

It's also important to keep in mind that ACORN's workers are coming from the same low-income neighborhoods the organization serves, with all that entails -- poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.
So the flaws conservatives are pointing out about ACORN are not so much problems associated with that organization per se but more about the problems of being poor and minority in urban America.

Question: Doesn't this kind of talk constitute racial profiling? If Joe Wilson or Sarah Palin had said, "The reason ACORN can't help being involved with tax evasion, immigration fraud, and facilitating child prostitution is because most of its employees are poor minorities," can you imagine the liberal heads that would be exploding coast to coast?

...poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.

I'm always fascinated by this people making this argument. It apparently never occurs to them that other logical possibilities exist. Perhaps instead of the environment causing the behavior, maybe it's the behavior that causes the environment. Or perhaps the environment and the behavior are consequences of a common cause: a dysfunctional culture. I point to exhibit A: rap music.

A neighbor of mine, a dentist, got his butt out of the ghetto as soon as he possibly could, just to escape the environment, the behavior, and the culture. If you read a transcript of one of his rants you'd swear he belonged to the KKK.

"NPR: Minorities Can't Help Being Criminals, It's Just the Way Those People Are"

This has to be the ONLY time I actually agree with NPR on anything...

Yeah, pretty much.

It's fascinating that liberals think these things just happen to inner city communities. As though they're like weather or something. Not something that people do to themselves.

I hope you're being facetious, fuzzle. I know a lot of "minority" individuals who are salt-of-the-Earth type people. But if you are agreeing that minorities who work for ACORN are by definition criminals (because they work for a criminal enterprise), then I'm with you.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at September 16, 2009 9:22 AM

Next step, not arresting blacks raping a young girl because "Poor boys can't help it" and for social justice, make an effort to arrest twice more whites? Incredible, never do these network ask "If more blacks than whites are in prison despise our massive entitlement and PC net... maybe the black's atitude and behavior is the problem?"

Posted by: Jay B. at September 16, 2009 9:33 AM

Actually liberals have always believed exactly that! (Even if it isn't true--it is what they believe.) The difference is that their response is to flip over like a puppy on their back and pee into the air.

Posted by: SnowSnake at September 16, 2009 9:35 AM

Gregory of Yardale,

Yes, I was being facetious and you’re right; it didn’t come out sounding very good.

It was supposed to be along the same lines as the ONLY time I actually agreed with Obama on anything when he called Kanya West a "jackass" the other day.

For that transgression I do apologize.

And I definitely do agree with you that minorities who work for ACORN are by definition criminals themselves because, after all, they do work for a criminal enterprise...

I thought you got the memo, VtK. They don't want to hold inner city culture and the people accountable for the results... yet they're content blaming white people for minority failures. It's easier to hold one group of people accountable for everyone, than everyone be accountable for themselves.

JayG observes: "A neighbor of mine, a dentist, got his butt out of the ghetto as soon as he possibly could, just to escape the environment, the behavior, and the culture. If you read a transcript of one of his rants you'd swear he belonged to the KKK."

Well, I don't know about the "KKK" part, but I have observed the same thing: The vast majority of middle-class churchgoing black folks are actually pretty conservative in thier views. They believe in family, working hard, getting an education, etc. - just like the rest of us.

Many of them also deplore the black "popular culture" promoted by goofballs like Kanye West and others of his ilk.

So, why do they vote Democrat? I could never understand how any self-respecting black man could vote "D". Same is true of the Hispanics, too. Sure, you'll have the usual lowlife liberal types (egged on by Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, et al)that want the free ride and promote racism and the culture of dependency, but I honestly believe they are the minority. Most good men (black, white or whatever pigmentation) simply have too much self-respect to act that way.

I was pretty sure you were being facetious, fuzzle. I'm sorry I had to double-check, but as you well know, our trolls have no sense for irony or sarcasm, and I wanted to preempt the inevitable attempts to derail the thread.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at September 16, 2009 10:08 AM

Follow-up to my last post:

1) The term "men" was in no way sexist - and I'm not trying to be politically correct, either. My apologies to the gals that post here.

2) The military has twice as many blacks as the general population - and they tend to vote conservative in my experience. This has a lot to do with the "good men with self-respect" part. Anyone that is motivated enough to join up, get through the training and do the job is not your typical loser from down in the 'hood.

So it is because they are just made that way. It is a no win situation like when someone labels another an alcoholic. If I say yes, then I go to counseling. If I say no I am in denial and I go to counseling. So this is why we have the new jazzed up ads for the SNAP program eh? Encourage people who own their home (probably through ACORN), a car, probably a late model or one from C4C) to get food stamps because we don't worry about the necessities in life, the gubmint pays for that. Is Best Buy having a sale on 52in plasmas? Uggghhh, what the hell is happening to my country?

Posted by: TW at September 16, 2009 10:43 AM

I got to relate this one to all of you. My dad died 2 and a half years ago and the only thing he had was his house. It wasn't much of a house. Valued at about $55K in a rural area. It may not have been that big but it was nice, beautiful lawn and the place was in pristine shape. all he did was work on it after he retired. Great starter home of a young couple.

He moved in, in 1947. The same time that all the neighbors moved in. All WWII vets. So I've know all the people in the neighborhood all my life.

Hardly anyone moved out. It was a pretty closed neighborhood. White, WWII vets, working class. Some worked for the railroad, some had their own businesses and some worked for businesses in the city. All honest hard working men with good families.

Now I live 1800 miles away from that part of the woods and when the old man died he left the house to me. I didn't have much use for it since I had my own home in the NE area. So I decided to sell it. I got a real estate agent and had the house appraised. I put it on the market for $52K. One night the real estate agent called me and said she had an offer of the house for $61K. HUH? I'm only asking $52K. She said that the buyer was in some government program and that she was willing to pay me $61K for the house. Sure enough it was legit (well legit from the point that the gubment would finance $61K for the home.) So I made a trip to the old homestead and talked to the neighbors about selling the house. It was more courtesy than anything. They were enthusiastic to get a new neighbor (My dad could be a bit of a bastard).

Well, I took the $61K and the lady moved in. Over the next year all hell broke loose. The lady and her "guests" destroyed the house. They flushed dirty diapers down the toilet blocking the sewer. The sewer pipe broke and s*** was standing on the front lawn. They broke out the front windows and removed the front door so it was a "walk in". There were people coming and going all hours of the night and day (this is a very quiet rural area). Ed called me (neighbor of 40 years) and said "You got to come down here and stop this s***, people in the neighborhood are ready to lynch this bunch". I told him I didn't have no say as she owned the house and he should call the police. He did. Two weeks later the woman defaulted on her loan (12.8% home loan.... are you kidding me?) and the bank repossessed the home.

The home was in such bad shape that the bank had the home razed. Department of Health wouldn't even go into it. They just razed it. Bulldozers away! Bagged all the containment, put it in a dumpster and left.

This was the neighborhoods first experience with a black home owner.

It all boils down to character. After 150 years you'd think they would have found some.

Now let me go the other way. I bunked with a African American in OCS and we went to pilot training together. Salt of the earth. Great pilot. never expected to be given anything. Earned his own way and when he was awarded his wings, He earned them. 125 started, 22 finished.

Posted by: FreeWillie at September 16, 2009 10:45 AM

FreeWillie. Character matters alot. 10 years ago a black couple moved in bought a small house (with their own money) and have kept it pristine ever since. But over the last 5 years, due to court ruling ordering inner city public housing dispersed into the suburbs, there are inner city (about half black and half white) public housing residents in the neighborhood. There is yelling and screaming at all hours, the yards are a mess, crime is way up (drugs, home invasions, ect) and For Sale signs are going up. Public housing is like a cancer. Granted not all public housing resident are bad, but half of them is bad enough. Liberal politicians think if you spread the misery around enough, the misery will be tolerable by everyone. Except for liberal politicians who tend to live in high priced gated communities behind iron bars and have private security partrols.

Its not just black in the inner city, it all government dependents both black and white that are the problem. Their attitude is if they dont have something they expect the government to give it to them or they steal it from someone else or engage in othe criminal activity.

Posted by: Reality Agent at September 16, 2009 11:03 AM

FreeWillie and Reality Agents, what you are saying is the issue isn't race, it's values and culture. No one would object to Cliff Huxtable and his family moving in next door; but when ACORN moves in RayRay and his baby mamas, there's a problem.

Posted by: V the K at September 16, 2009 11:09 AM

I lived on the North side of Minneapolis for four years and never had any trouble with my neighbors (all of whom were black) the whole time I was there. In fact, they were delighted to have someone living next to them that wasn't selling crack or running a prostitution ring and they looked out for us and we looked out for them. Good people like to hang with good people. Bad people can't even stand each other. If we got all the good people together of all races, we'd have paradise. If we could get all the bad people together of all races, we'd have the Democratic National Convention!

Posted by: Ghost of LBJ at September 16, 2009 11:39 AM

Years ago I bought a remodeled bungalow in a predominately Mexican neighborhood in the Bay Area. The house had been almost completely rebuilt – previous owner was a lowlife who ran a chop-shop in the back yard. When I moved in I did extensive landscaping and made it a generally nice place.

It caught on. All my neighbors up and down the street began home improvements and landscaping. Many of them even began parking in their driveways rather than in the middle of their yards. (That’s not easy for a lot of Mexicans to do!)

Mortal of the story – things can be changed the other way, also.

FYI – After 3 years I sold for 2.5 times what I paid for it. Win-win.

"the problems of being poor and minority in urban America."
Not a dry eye in the house, here.

But it sure would be nice if certain well-protected liberal women would start to realize that poor people are over-whelmingly nasty, vicious, greedy, stupid and violent. That in large part, is why they are poor, and not the other way around.

Ladies, walk through any downtown in America and night and you will find very few of your downtrodden minions holding out alms bowls.

Wait... Let me stop laughing. You redneck racists are a hoot. You people really believe your own pitiful propaganda about yourselves, don't you. How superior and God-like you must feel. Man, I wish I could be inside one of your pea brains for a few minutes. Now, let me remind you pastey face animals of the truth about your vile race.
YOU white people are the most violent people in this country. Have been since you first set foot on this land and proceeded to commit the most horrid case of genocide known to man. You whites abuse the most drugs--even the legal ones you get perscriptions for. You are the most vile race of people on the planet. A mistake in the DNA make up (Which, by the way, WHITE scientists found the mutant gene that created your mistake- of-nature race). A pathetic race of pedophiles, child murderers, incest lovers, terrorists, and traitors. Serial killers/kidnappers (poor ol' Jaycee,), child molesting priests, inbreeders, and porn lovers--kiddie porn and all the rest. What a putrid, disgusting race. Your filthy race commit the most patricides, matricides, mass murders, spree killings, serial murders (You animals make dahmer,manson, richard speck, McVeigh, john wayne gacy, ted bundy and the hundreds of other serial killing maniacs out of folk hereos) child and infant murders, and suicides. Trailer park white filthy trash, where the dads phuck their daughters, the sons take their turns, and the stupid a$$ mom looks on--probably because she was screwed by HER father. In the 'burbs, you use the most drugs, find ALL the serial killers. The white trashy white whores phuck ANYTHING and EVERYONE. Drunken parents with suicidal litters. Gun-loving morons. Columbine and Jonesboro high schools--your insane white males will shoot up a nursery school--which they've done. The reason why sexting wasn't made to be a sexual felony is because most of the whores and limp dicks doing it are from the white community. Drunken, limp dick white boys who want to be black, and stupid a$$ white girls who want black dicks. There's not enough trees in the forest to document how despicable the white race is. But not to worry. It is well documented that, soon, your loathsome pale race will cease to exist. Not just in this country, but on the entire planet. Gone the way of the dinos. This will be GOD'S doing. HIS will. Soon, HE will rectify this ghastly mistake of nature. Destroy this vicious creature that wants to be human, but can't hide the moster that it truely is: A murderous, filthy race of rancid bile. Now, tell me--am I lying?

Perhaps the environment does create part of the problem, but doesn't having ACORN promote this stuff just perpetuate the problem?
Perhaps the solution is to abolish ACORN, Government Housing, and Welfare, and let people find their own way out of the inner city and into real jobs, responsibility, and fulfilment?
Just a thought.

Harry C. Alford, CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce torched Barbara Boxer in spades for this same kind of racist bigotry as NPR displayed when she tried preaching to him about how he should just get in line with the NAACP's positions. White liberal elitists are racists and think most minorities are all just poor criminals who are too stupid to figure out life for themselves and need Big Daddy government to take care of them from cradle to grave. Ironically, its the same poor minorities who validate the liberal elitist's bigoted sterotypes of them by voting the elitists back in office.

Other than that, I avoid Alec Baldwin much like I avoid Charlie Sheen, Susan Sarandon and other the other moonbatty Hollyweird types too numerous to mention.
