Not A Time To Celebrate

It should be abundantly clear by now to the American people that no matter who they befriend - and no matter what "race" those people are - it will never be sufficient to counter the claims of so-called "racial leaders" who have a vested interest in keeping the "struggle" alive. Harmony will never be tolerated, no matter the cost in human lives, for it is of paramount importance to them to maintain a level of hostility into which they can inject themselves as "saviors" at the most opportune of moments.

While I am delighted - admittedly in a purely partisan sense - in the delicious irony of a black Republican Chairman taking to task one of my most despised liberal senators in Harry Reid, I find the joy of comeuppance fading in the dingy reality of it all. It's almost like having the incredibly rare opportunity of personally beheading Osama bin Laden; for all of my personal bravado, I sincerely doubt that I could carry out such a task while giggling. Righteousness, to be certain, but glee would surely evade me, for it would certainly be a most gruesome task.

Michael Steele, Republican Party Chairman, has called for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to step down over comments Reid made in 2008 about then-presidential candidate Barack Obama. According to accounts of Reid's remark from a book called Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime, the Nevada Senator said, "the country was ready for a 'light-skinned' African-American president with 'no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.'"

Forget the idiocy of such a comment, if you can, and think instead of the reactions to it by the left. There is a collective silence from the voices of outrage that belong to the alleged "black leaders" alluded to earlier, and the target of such a remark - President Obama himself - has given his forgiveness already. Would such magnanimity have been offered to someone like say, Trent Lott? That is not a hypothetical question, since we already know the answer...Lott was excoriated for much less.

Still, that is not my complaint. My problem with Steele's response stems from the fact that the ordinary folks, both black and white, who increasingly gravitate toward one another - despite the wedge that is constantly thrust between them - grow weary of this type of rhetoric. They are tired of being used as tools in a war that liberals will not allow to die, despite their falsely declared revulsion at the very prospect of war. It has become apparent that a seemingly harmless war of words is something from which they do not shy since they have the trusty shield of Achilles, otherwise known as the media.

Lest I be misunderstood, I am not suggesting that Steele should have remained silent, as the absence of a reply would have gone completely unnoticed and only encouraged the perpetration of similar inanities. Therein lies the unfortunate state in which our society finds itself; while most of us would prefer to be left to our own devices and associations, we cannot get past the absurd stereotypes thrown in our faces. They demand to be addressed. Never mind that they may be summarily dismissed with a hearty laugh as bi-racial pals smack one another on the back at the summer picnic.

The forces that thrive on division always seem to creep into the psyches of the masses, albeit through the careful cultivation of a conniving entity known as the Civil Rights Movement. Once a noble endeavor, this movement has become obsolete by the grace of those it served, who took the lessons and applied them in true American fashion; they learned to embrace the precepts and to love one another. Sadly, this became a threat to the movement whose benevolence turned to an urgent yearning for legitimacy.

When we, the People, finally cast off the chains of a once-loving government and accept that yes, we are ok after all, we will ultimately be freed from the ravages of race envy, and once and for all be able to live and love together.

Can I get an "Amen"?
