There are some very serious racial issues threatening the United States, racists abound, but the truth of the matter is this; those racists are made up of people from ALL walks of life, all shapes, sizes and colors.
Dorothy Bland: My assumptions may have been wrong but fears were real
Almost two weeks after Dorothy Bland’s “walking while black” column on dallasnews.com turned her into a social media focus in America’s ongoing arguments about racism, she’d like people to know a few things:
• She was absolutely not speaking in that column for the University of North Texas, where she is the dean of the Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism and the director for the Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism.
• She has “a deep respect for law enforcement officers and understand that they have a very difficult job.”
• She thinks that “some of my assumptions may have been wrong and I regret that.”
• But, she says, “I can tell you that my fears were real that day” that she wrote about in the column.
The column was about a confrontation she had with two police officers while she was walking in her Corinth neighborhood. Minutes after the incident, she posted about it on Facebook. A few days later, she sent her column to The Dallas Morning News. It said, in part: SOURCE
Some folks may not have heard of this story as it was happening but for the folks living in the DFW area it was BLASTED all over the news; a Black educator claimed she was racially profiled, stopped and questioned because she was *Walking while Black*.
And then the Dash Cam video was released on YouTube.
Dorothy Bland’s 15 minutes of racial activism are over and she was shown to be the racist fool and liar that she really is. It has blown up in her face as she, and many other like her, seek to play The Race Card and portray themselves as a victim.
I know, personally KNOW, and am friends with some very nice, decent and hard working Black people. They are professionals, they work in many fields, engineering, education and public service and Law Enforcement just to name a few, and they are all Conservatives that have worked hard to reach their level of success and station in life.
None of them are entitlement slugs or affirmative action leeches on life, they are not the kind of people that express faux outrage and play The Race Card every time something doesn’t go quite the way they want it to. They accept the cards life deals and they, like millions of other hard working Americans, strive to do even better as they attempt to get an even bigger piece of the pie for themselves and their families.
Unlike Dorothy Bland they don’t tell lies and make unfounded accusations.
So, tell me, just WHO is the racist here? You can decide that one for yourselves.
