Of Media Bias, Situational Ethics and Mulattos

by lewwaters

Obama Toasting 2On this 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s famous I Have a Dream speech, it seems we are further away from that dream than we have been in my lifetime. Unlike he hoped for in that speech, a time when people “will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character,” skin color seems to be one of the first factors we leap to in judgment of each other.

For instance, the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida where George Zimmerman was instantly identified as a White person, based solely upon his name and the media joining forces with the likes of race baiters Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in taking a local story and blowing it into an international outrage indicating a major racial problem, but ignoring Zimmerman’s true ethnicity, Hispanic of Black ancestry as well as the actual evidence in the case that exonerated Zimmerman.

Trayvon’s past was to be ignored while Zimmerman’s was picked over with a fine toothed comb as Trayvon ended up being portrayed as a poor innocent Black youth gunned down in the dead of night by an angry White person.

That it isn’t actually what the evidence showed really happened isn’t important as we saw how the media, with their heavy bias and Democrats with their situational ethics twisted the case every which way they could think of to take political advantage of it.

And nowhere is it more apparent than in media coverage concerning Barack Obama, also of biracial heritage, but you would have forgotten that what with the media coverage always portraying him as a Black man, the first Black man to achieve the highest office in our country.

We are reminded of it so much that if you disagree or oppose policies he wishes to implement, you’re quickly branded a “racist” in an effort to silence criticism as opponents are beat into submission and reminded of times past to when MLK made his famous speech, as if we are still mired deeply in those times.

Looking around us, ignored by media and agenda driven liberal politicians, it is evident that we are not still locked in those times as we see more successful Blacks than ever before, no segregated communities filled with slums where Blacks are made to live, even though large cities still have their ghettoes where all minorities seem locked into because they do take advantage of the means of escape offered, education and working for it, and a list of biracial celebrities unlike we have ever seen before.

Many Mulattos, for whatever reason, deny or ignore their White heritage and cling to their Black heritage today, unlike those of the past that downplayed or denied their Black Heritage to make in this “White man’s world.”

Even though there really is no “White man’s world” any longer, both media and liberals readily go along with this façade we witness their bias and situational ethics on full display in what appears to be an effort to swing the racial pendulum over to promoting the good of Blacks over the Whites.

I’ve noticed it in many commercials where we subtly see more intelligent Blacks correcting the dumb White to sell their product. Not all mind, but from what ads I see, more often than not.

But where this façade shines the brightest is in reporting of crimes, White on Black crime usually quickly labeled a ‘Hate Crime’ while Black on White crimes seem not to be, even when it is glaringly apparent they should be.

We see it in the description given of criminals as media seems to go out of their way to hide Black criminals while ensuring readers and viewers know the race of the White criminal.

We evidence this with the recent murder of Australian ball player, Christopher Lane in Oklahoma by three Black youths because, as they said, “we were bored.”

But wait, one of those youth’s, Michael Jones is biracial, another Mulatto with a White mother and a Black father, just like Barack Obama’s heritage.

While we are repeatedly reminded that Barack Obama is Black, indentifying 17-yearold Michael Jones as Black, along with his two accomplices on Fox & Friends and the Daily caller raised the scorn of Mediaite, a so-called “news and opinion blog covering politics and entertainment” that is actually more of a liberal site established to try to counter the growing popularity of Fox News in 2009 and counter any good news published on conservatives.

Obama Mulatto ComparisonWe read, “A Duncan, Oklahoma police source confirms, to Mediaite, that 17 year-old suspect Michael Jones is, indeed, a white male.”

It seems that if a person of biracial heritage commits a crime now, they are “White,” and no longer “Black.”

How convenient for race baiters.

The other two charged with the crime are decidedly Black, but all we hear about them is “Edwards and Luna are being charged with first-degree murder, whereas Jones is charged with ‘using a vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact of murder in the first degree’,” in another vain effort to paint the court system as racist by charging the “White” person with a lesser crime than the two Black people.

Again ignored, Jones did not shoot, but drove the car the other two were in, got out of and shot Lane to death. So of course he would be charged with the lesser crime, even if they described him by his Black half.

But that wouldn’t fit the agenda of criticizing conservatives who are asking where are the race baiters that created such a stink over the Trayvon Martin incident and where is Barack Obama who spoke out soon after that case blew into a national story saying, “if I had a son, he would look just like Trayvon.”

No, given the messiah-like aura constructed around Obama, no one wants there to be any connection to a criminal like Jones to Obama.

The tragic outcome of this media/situational ethics is an ever deepening divide between us, Whites beginning to distrust Blacks more than before, some Blacks feeling empowered to lord it over others. All the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King dreamt in his famous speech.

One such example would be the outrage of over a recent video gone viral of children “Behaving Badly” quickly seen as “Bullying” of a little White girl by Black children.

Standing back and viewing it, would we see it as racially motivated as claimed if it were reversed or if it all Black or all White Children? I doubt it.

But since it is Black children picking on a smaller White girl, our moral outrage is triggered, much like the biased media succeeded in doing with Trayvon Martin.

Then too, the 12-year old who took the video and posted it online under the title “When white people piss black people off part 1” only helped stoke that outrage.

But as both parents say of this, it is “is a case of children behaving badly and has nothing to do with race,” the children regularly playing together prior to this.

The 12-year old is being punished for it by his father, ‘Eddie,’ and I have to trust the girl’s father that it is acceptable. My only comment to Eddie would be that perhaps you need to take a closer look at some of your son’s friends and acquaintenance’s over the poorly chosen title.

But, this is where we have been brought in this “post-racial” era of Barack Obama, fueled by a biased media that expresses situation ethics and outrage, as well as biracial people are selectively portrayed as Black or White, all depending on how that biased media wishes to stir up hysteria or justify their point of view of who are the good people versus who are the bad people.

It’s really tragic that here we are, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s I have A Dream speech and our distrust of each other is worse than it has been in decades as skin color takes precedence over character.

  1. When Barack Obama was elected President, one silver lining in an otherwise dismal cloud I saw was the promise of hope that his election would bring to young Black Americans. I was wrong.

    Barack Obama has been an absolute tragedy for race relations in America. Every time he’s had an opportunity to bring healing and understanding, he’s done the exact opposite. He has been an absolute failure in leading young Black people to expect more of themselves, to work hard and get ahead, to have hope for their future. Instead, he’s taken every opportunity to poison, to divide, to destroy. In my opinion, he’s done more to hurt Black America than any other popular figure in post Civil War history.

  3. King would be happy with the steps our nation has taken. More blacks have opportunities to succeed. Blacks who have received an education have been able to translate that education into opportunities for themselves and their families. There is a vibrant black middle class that mirrors the American middle class. We work hard to give our children a good place to live, a quality education and opportunities to succeed as adults. We save for retirement. We stress about taxes. We are looking for opportunities to take the next step in our careers and life.

  4. My only question on your premise, Mildred, if everything you say is true, why then is unemployment in the Black community higher than ever?

    Why are so many apparently not taking advantage of that free public education we all provide for everyone?

    I don’t see Blacks as any different than the rest, but something seems to not be working well in the Black Community.

  5. I’m 55 and I’ve never seen racism in person. I’ve seen it on TV, of course, and hear about it constantly, but never actually knew anybody who lost a job or promotion or was turned down for a loan because of it, and I think I would know discrimination if I saw it. I’ve been turned down for a loan for the simple reason that my last name is “Hash,” which makes me a possible drug-dealer. I’ve had my license plates taken away by a judge who said they were “not acceptable in the State of Washington” when I got a speeding ticket for going 55 in a 55 – in a red Ferrari with “Hash” on the license plates. And if you want to witness some derision and name-calling, just be a rich, middle-aged white male at a Democratic Party function.

    The discriminatory things that happen to people have way more to do with the situations that surround them and little to do with skin color.

    ???

    They don’t mirror the American middle class. There’s no white middle class versus black middle class. It’s just Middle Class and if we allow our government to continue down the road they’re going, there will be NO middle class.
