If You Want to See What Real Racism Looks Like…

Good thing only white people can be racist. Otherwise, the high jinx at Detroit's city council would be appalling. Nolan Finley reports on a recent meeting to discuss the expansion of the Cobo Center:

It was a tragic circus, a festival of ignorance that confirmed the No. 1 obstacle to Detroit's progress is the bargain basement leaders that city voters elect. The black nationalism that is now the dominant ideology of the council was on proud display, both at the table and in the audience.
Speakers advocating for the deal were taunted by the crowd and cut short by Council President Monica Conyers, who presided over the hearing like an angry bulldog; whites were advised by the citizens to, "Go home."
Opponents were allowed to rant and ramble on uninterrupted about "those people" who want to steal Detroit's assets and profit from the city's labors.
A pitiful Teamster official who practically crawled to the table on his knees expressing profuse respect for this disrespectful body was battered by both the crowd and the council.
When he dared suggest that an improved Cobo Center would create more good-paying jobs for union workers, Conyers reminded him, "Those workers look like you; they don't look like me."

Desperate, he invoked President Barack Obama's message of unity and was angrily warned, "Don't you say his name here."

It looks like Obama advisor Robert Reich isn't the only one who doesn't want any jobs going to white folks. Finley continues:

Juxtapose the place and the faces and imagine a white Livonia City Council treating a black union representative with such overt racial hostility. The Justice Department would swoop down like a hawk, and the Rev. Al Sharpton would clog Five Mile Road with protesters.
But in Detroit, dealing with the council's bigotry is part of the cost of doing business.

If you don't approve, you must be a racist.

Monica Conyers, wife of the kooky and corrupt Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

Detroit gives us a preview of what 40 years of unrestrained Obamunism (socialism + racial grievance mongering) looks like.

Detroit, Zimbabwe...whats the difference

The remaining residents of Detroit are bitter racists, religiously clinging to their racism and bling while facing the world with antipathy. I think you will find this in the poor neighborhoods of any large metro area. I also think it is entirely likely that That One will lead the entire country in that direction.

This will give white liberals yet another chance to discuss amongst themselves how blacks cannot by virtue of ancestral discrimination, be racist.

Even Detroit isn't worthless. It can always serve as an example to others.

She's got the same arrogant "head tilt/look down her nose at you" look that Obama gets when he speaks.

I am black (NOT "African-American." Black, dammit!) and I think this is absolutely horrible. Some portion of any race will inevitably be racist or supremecist, at least in this era. But that an entire city's worth of my brethern can subscribe to this kind of thinking and misdirected "retribution" is stunning. And to have government run by these twits...!
Somebody save them. We are all, after all, Americans first and foremost.

DoubleD; If they are your brethern (sp), why aren't you standing up with them, teaching them not to "subscribe to this kind of thinking and misdirected 'retribution'", and change the twits running the government? For years I myself lived in a Detroit Suburb (88-90) and even then (20 yrs ago) it was suicide to get on the wrong road to Tiger Stadium, white person that I am I couldn't even attend a public meeting without being linched. Imagine if I were to invest in some of the abandoned property to make an improvement and resell it, or worse yet, start up a business in one of the abandoned factories and put 300 of them to work making widgets? I'm sure they wouldn't hear of it because I'm not african.
