If you were aware in the 1960s and 1970s, then you know the country went through great growing pains, especially where race was concerned. Executing the actions – not just the rhetoric – of the Civil Rights movement allowed the overwhelming majority in our society to move beyond the inequity of racism. However, listening to progressives, you would believe we are a full-blown racist nation.
That was certainly the accusation Hillary Clinton leveled against the American people in the first 2016 presidential debate. When asked by moderator Lester Holt if she thought law enforcement was implicitly biased against black people, Clinton said, “I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police.”
This statement should stop Americans in their tracks. Hillary Clinton just declared that, whether you believe you are or not, you are racist.
This arrogant declaration – made against you and me by people we have never met and most likely will never meet – is a slap in the face to everyone who lived through 1960s and 1970s and everyone else who grew up afterward and never had to overcome racism.
In fact, this conceited pronouncement slaps the faces of everyone who listened to, supported, and embraced the ideas of consummate civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who said we must not judge each other by the color of our skin but by the content of our character.
“I think, unfortunately, too many of us, in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other. And, therefore, I think we need – all of us – to be asking hard questions about, you know, ‘Why am I feeling this way?’ But when it comes to policing, it can have, literally, fatal consequences,” Hillary continued.
Clinton went so far as to say that because she and her liberal brethren believe there to be implicit bias in police departments, she would allocate funding in her first presidential budget to “retrain a lot of our police officers.” If that sounds a lot like “reeducation camps,” you wouldn’t be the only person to have that thought.
While Hillary Clinton may be the messenger for this progressive point of view, she is by no means the only one who thinks in this incredibly arrogant way. The whole of the progressive movement believes we are all “implicitly racist.”
Quoting from the mothership of Progressivism, George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, “implicit racism” is defined as:
“Implicit bias occurs when someone consciously rejects stereotypes and supports anti-discrimination efforts but also holds negative associations in his/her mind unconsciously…[M]uch of the work our brain does occurs on the unconscious level. Thus, implicit bias does not mean that people are hiding their racial prejudices. They literally do not know they have them. More than 85 percent of all Americans consider themselves to be unprejudiced. Yet, researchers have concluded that the majority of people in the United States hold some degree of implicit racial bias” (emphasis mine).
So, whether you know it or not, you are racist, according to Hillary Clinton and the progressive movement. It may come as a shock to you, but you are. The progressives have decided that for you.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a racist bone in my body. I was brought up not to judge people by the color of their skin. I was taught to judge people by their works, words, and deeds if I found that someone needed to be judged at all. So, I am done with having a pseudo-enlightened gaggle of wanna-be know-it-alls telling me that, whether I like it or not, I am a racist.
The only racist people in the United States are those who continuously see the world through the lens of race. That pretty much defines Hillary Clinton, progressives, and the Democrat Party to a tee.
