Outrage

What has become of our society?!?

We have come so far yet we allow social programs to hold us and an entire population back. Civil rights leaders are coveting their careers and not the goals their organizations are set up to achieve. Black “leaders” are nothing but the slave owners of old and are working to keep a new generation of blacks in shackles so that the “leaders” can get a few minutes of fame by forming coalitions or filing law suits while ignoring the true ills of those that they “lead.”

This article ran in today’s Washington Post On-line: Who Exiled New Orleans’ Poor?

I do not know Ms. Judith Browne-Dianis but based on this article I would have to put her in the category of those that are willing to keep their jobs at all costs.

Why would any person want to return people to a welfare system that only encourages further welfare? Why would we call public housing someone’s home? Shouldn’t the purpose of public housing be to allow people to get on their feet and establish a life for themselves and not become their permanent home? Why would anyone equate public housing and being black as being one in the same? Is there some underpinning of society that says that blacks can do no better than public housing in New Orleans? Is Judith Browne-Dianis only trying to maintain her position at the Advancement Project by keeping people, primarily black people, in public housing and under the hand of government?

I believe that there is a time and place for welfare programs but we have gone too far. We have spent the better part of a generation showing them that government control of your housing, your money, and your healthcare are good things when in reality they are more damaging than anything this country has ever seen. We are indoctrinating many of our black citizens that government support is the best that they can expect in this country and this attitude is deplorable!

The aftermath of hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans but at the end of every dark day comes a new day. We have seen a remarkable recovery in an area that many, including myself, talked about completely abandoning. It proves that hard work pays for itself.

Look at the areas that have seen the largest comeback and you will see people that rely on themselves not the government as their primary means of support. Why would anyone be surprised that those that are dependant on the government would be the last to receive help? Those that do for themselves and others are the ones we want to reward. Dependence only breeds ignorance and does little to sustain our society.

We as Americans, black, white, red, yellow, green, and orange, can not stand by while people like Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and Judith Browne-Dianis tell our children that the government knows best. We can not allow them to taint the minds of our children by telling them that this country only cares what color their skin is. We can not allow these people to destroy our children’s minds with continued hatred of this country and all that it has to offer. We can not allow them to brainwash our children into thinking that this country somehow owes them something.

We must make it clear that our country was founded on principles that include hard work, sacrifice, and the kindness of strangers. We must teach our children that this country is a melting pot of people all who yearn to be free from the control of any government. We must stress that there are always tough times. We will all need a hand once in while but government “hand-outs” are not the way to a better society. Look to your neighbor when they are in need and you will be rewarded when you are in need.

We must not cling to the socialistic mentality of the current generation. We must look to the future and see a society that does not rely on the government as our way out. We must show that we can hold on to our cultural identities while not wearing it on our sleeve. We must endeavor to do better than those that came before and prove to the world and ourselves that we are all Americans and that we have left no one behind.

A free society is built by those that are independent not those that are dependant.
