Is white America really the problem?

Okay, so I am watching “Geraldo At Large.” The topic is the epidemic of blacks killing blacks. On another program, it was said that 9,000 blacks are murdered each year – 93 percent by fellow blacks. Geraldo’s guest, a black pundit, focused totally on indicting white America for not caring.

Now let me get this straight in my mind. Rather than dealing with why young blacks are offing each other in huge numbers, this liberal agenda-driven political hack, who happens to have been black, is trying to make it “whitey’s” fault for not losing sleep over it. How does whites “caring” impact the destructive behavior of blacks?

Frankly, in Obama’s economy, white America — and the rest of it too — is too busy struggling to survive while fending off Obama’s almost daily attempts to repeal our Constitutional freedoms to wring their hands about blacks killing each other.

Also the black pundit’s white liberal buddies in the mainstream media under-report the extremely high percentage of assaults by blacks against blacks and other races. So, how can white America be held accountable for that which they know nothing about?

Since the not-guilty verdict in the Zimmerman trial, white America has taken it on the chin pretty hard; falsely accused of being racist. To promote this deception, the left is flooding the airways with black talking-head haters. Democrats even threw in their big-gun divider and manipulator, President Obama.

In the midst of the race exploitation industry doubling down on divisive rhetoric, I would like to introduce you to a white man who represents the true character of a majority of Americans.

Please meet my new brother-in-law, Mac, a white guy.

Mack is a member of a coalition of 18 Christian small businessmen volunteers who risk their lives every year traveling to Honduras to build churches in remote primitive villages. Kidnapping Americans for ransom is big business in Honduras. Thus, Mac and his associates must work under the protection of armed guards.

I asked Mac, “Why do you take such a risk?” Mac replied, “I don’t know. I just do it.”

Extremely excited about his latest church building expedition, Mac showed me a gazillion pictures. His infectious enthusiasm for the project and great respect for the villagers was quite heartwarming. Mac commented several times about how appreciative, clean and happy the villagers were despite having very few material possessions.

Kitchens are outside. Cook stoves are made of clay and stones. Clothes are hand-washed on washboards. Homes are shacks, but they are clean. Toilets are outhouses.

Two and a half days is the average time it takes Mac’s team to build a church; a block structure with a metal roof, no windows and a dirt floor. To the villagers, their church building is a grand structure — a miracle for which they prayed for 13 years.

A school age boy hung around the site where they were building the church. They learned that school cost $150 a year which the boy’s parents could not afford. One of Mac’s team members pledged to fund the boys education through high school. He said, “Heck, I spend that much on a game of golf.”.

Clearly, the villager’s attitude of gratitude made the stressful risky adventure worth-while for Mac and his crew.

And yes, I could not help contrasting the gratefulness of the villagers to the arrogant entitlement mindsets of the so-called poor of America; created by politicians peddling class envy.
