TX. Sen. John Cornyn and the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Luncheon

John_CornynYesterday, March 28, Sen. Cornyn posted on Facebook about his luncheon with the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce!

I take exception to that and I am not at all bashful about saying so. I posted this comment on Sen. Cornyn’s Facebook feed:

Fred Witzell - “Just wondering; what would I be called if I started a *Caucasian Chamber of Commerce*? I think we ALL know the answer to that one… Kind of funny actually, it’s not racist when THEY do it…”

Then I was inspired to send the following to Sen. Cornyn because, you see, I am NOT joking; I find this to be a very RACIST thing, this Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

There are African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, Arab-Americans, Native-Americans, etc.

And then there are just – Americans.

Some of you pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.

You call me ‘White boy’, ‘Cracker’, ‘Honky’, ‘Whitey’, ‘Gringo’ or ‘Caveman’, and as far as you are concerned, that’s OK, but if I say so much as one word that you consider to be out of line, I am branded as a vile racist.

You say that whites commit acts of violence against you … so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund, Hispanic History Month, Martin Luther King Day, Asian History Month, Black Entertainment Television, Black History Month, Cesar Chavez Day, Kwanzaa and the NAACP.

If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be called racists.

If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.

If we had a White History Month, we’d be called racist for that.

If we had any organization for Whites Only to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d certainly be branded as racists.

There’s a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and a Black Chamber of Commerce.

Then we have the Chamber of Commerce, not a White Chamber of Commerce, just The Chamber of Commerce.

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we’d be called evil racists.

There are openly-proclaimed Black-Only Colleges in the US, yet if there were ‘White-Only Colleges’, why THAT would be a racist college, and probably illegal.

In the Million-Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.

If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us bog dwelling, redneck racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and red, and you’re not afraid to announce it.

But when we announce our White Pride, yeah, you got it, we get called racists, NAZIs and a lot worse.

You can rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us, and we’re supposed to sit back and take it? Nope, not gonna happen!

So why is it that when a white police officer shoots a black gang member, or beats up a black drug-dealer that’s running from the LAW, and posing a threat to ALL of society, why do you call that police officer a racist for simply doing his job?

I am White and I am proud, but, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

It’s not too often that I make a post accusing others of RACISM, I know what it feels like to have those accusations thrown at me, even when they aren’t true, but I am very sincere in this statement; if Caucasians had ANY organization that was labeled as a WHITE anything we would be castigated by every person of color in this nation.

Racism is WRONG, no matter who is engaged in it.

And for what it’s worth, I have received NO reply from Sen. Cornyn.

    “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy, and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” — Booker T. Washington in his 1911 book, My Larger Education

    It sounds to me like Cornyn was trolling for votes.

    Fred…Your comments are right on. We are also supposed to feel guilty because we have “white privilege” and a lot of white people are falling for that crap. The biggest racist of all resides in the White House.

  3. LD Jackson says:

    You aren’t the only one who is tired of all this hyphenated American rhetoric. I am sick of hearing about the pride every other race is expected to have and then turn around and see whites shouted down for being racist. Most of us are nothing of the kind.

    The only true racism I see coming out of our country comes from the mouths of those who continually accuse others of racism. That may not be a popular viewpoint, but it’s the God’s truth.

      I have been tired of it for a LONG time now, but for some reason, most bloggers, and damned few citizens, have the guts to address it… I guess they are afraid of being called RACIST simply because they spoke, and published the truth…

      I am SO tired of gutless people, and the apathy I see everywhere…

      I am getting VERY tired of the less than stellar support I am seeing from Rowlett citizens and government… Only a few have ANY fight in them, and quite frankly, I am tired, just plain old tired, and if the Council and some of the nearly 60K people in Rowlett don’t get involved, I am going to get uninvolved in their battle against atheists… Everyone wants these guys decimated, or so they claim, no one wants to get bloody.. That is the apathy I see in ALL of America now, everyone wants FREEDOM, few are willing to fight for it…

    I still have scars, and some even today still haven’t fully healed and drip,ooze, and even now a piece of shrapnel come to the surface on my face from combat injuries,,, from the early 60′s. I just pull it out and be on my way.
    I have never pissed and moaned about them.
    Hell, I made it thru all this shit and am a”retired” old combat captain, 74 years old.

    Today’s war is totally different. It is defeating this “enemy” Barak Hussein Obama.
    I consider HIM the same level enemy as that piss-ant North Korea’s Kim Jung Il who has now targeted Austin, TX for a nuclear missile!!!

    There was a time not so long when those of our political persuasion were at least prefaced as right wingers, ring wing conspiracists and so forth. Now we are simply called “they”… Otherwise known as god and gun clingers. I sit and watch in amazing as I watch t.v. And am Called “they”.

  6. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    I think you’re going to hear the sound of crickets chirping in the field if you believe you’re going to get an actual response from Cornyn.

    In today’s society, he’s still MALE and he’s still OLD and he’s still WHITE.

    Strike THREE.

    Racism, misandry, the list goes on… Whiskey Tango Foxtrot as long as it is politically correct…
