In Rhodesia a white government ruled and Rhodesia prospered, becoming known as the "breadbasket of Africa." Then the revolution came, and all the poor oppressed black people got to learn first hand how good life could be under Robert Mugabe.
Say what you want about apartheid Africa, it worked. Now, was it MORALLY right? Not by a long shot, but the real question remains whether or not white leadership was good for those nations, and the answer from every available metric is a "yes."
So how can people who believe that "communism will work if only the right people are in charge" also believe that "the right people" can't be white?
Occupy Wall Street’s General Assembly operates under a revolutionary “progressive stack.” A normal “stack” means those who wish to speak get in line. A progressive stack encourages women and traditionally marginalized groups speak before men, especially white men. This is something that has been in place since the beginning, it is necessary, and it is important.
“Step up, step back” was a common phrase of the first week, encouraging white men to acknowledge the privilege they have lived in their entire lives and to step back from continually speaking. This progressive stack has been inspiring and mind-boggling in its effectiveness. Source http://biggovernment.com/publius/2011/10/07/occupywallstreets-racist-speech-rule-white-men-last/
I give you the above quote to show you how enforced equality looks. It doesn't matter what you have to say, your ideas are not judged by their content but by the color of your skin. Wait, didn't another great American have something to say about that?
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
It seems that there are those who are unwilling to be colorblind, and in this day in age the content of ones character far outweighs the color of their skin. Had Herman Cain run against Obama the novelty of a main party black politician would have not been an issue, only the content of their character.
So while I agree with many of the points being made by Occupy Wall Street (chrony capitalism is an abhorrent deviation of free market principles), I do not agree with their end goals. I do not agree with their tactics. And I do not agree with their racist policy.
