This is too good to be true from the Daily Beast.
"Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King said for years that he
is biracial, because he was born to a white mother and a black father,
but Kentucky public records reviewed by The Daily Beast show that King’s
father is white. Jeffery Wayne King, born Nov. 11, 1955, is listed as
Shaun King’s father on his birth certificate. Criminal records identify
Jeffrey King’s ethnicity as white. After Breitbart News questioned King’s race, the activist tweeted that he “did not concoct a lie” about his race. King also said,
“If you have known me from when I was in elementary school at
Huntertown Elementary until now, you’ve known me as black or bi-racial.”
I think what we have here is another wannabe in the vein of Rachel Dolezal.
If you are an African American in your mind, then, as Jessie Jackson said, " you are somebody".
To my mind, Shaun and Rachel are stealing. They are stealing a culture and a race in the same way the Bruce Jenner stole a new sex.
I remember a song back in the 70's by the Kinks called "Lola". Lola was a man, but he really did not want to be a man. There is a line in the song to the effect that, "...girls will be boys and boys will be girls, it's a mixed up world, muddled up world except for Lola". That may not be an exact quote, but it seems today that we truly can be anything we want to be. We are not constrained by our gene pool or the amount of melanin in our skin or the God given equipment between our legs.
You might say, "Ghog, why is this happening?"
With regard to the race thing, if I had to hazard a guess, I would put it down to white people in America not having a defined culture of their own. We have lost connection with our European roots and so we are searching for a history and a way so we can have something to identify with. We have not suffered as other races have suffered. Ours is a history of invention, of innovation and of military dominance. For 2500 years we have been the most creative as well as damaging force on earth, while at the same time bringing civilization to it's peak. All of that is crumbling now because we have been taught to be ashamed of our achievements. We need a replacement heritage, because the one we have is tainted by racism and brute force.
It's all crap my friends. We need to rise up and embrace our heritage. The world is a better place because of white folks. Get over it. You need us. When we are gone, then you will know. Your ethnic worlds will collapse and you will again be enslaved by the people at the top; the last and most evil white folks. This is just around the historical corner my friends. Be prepared to embrace the demise of our race and the western world with it.
"But Ghog", you say, "What about the sex thing and Bruce"?
Well, this has been an issue to some degree or another throughout history. I think it is made worse in our time by androgyn mimicing chemicals in the environment and in the womb. Feminize a male fetal brain with these chemicals or with too many hormones from the mother and you end up with boys that would rather wear mom's dress than pick up dad's fishing pole. I am not sure what the answer is.
I do know this. The world is a screwed up place. It's a place where even seemingly harmless choices can bring devastation for centuries.
Also, we cannot be choosing who we are simply by the way we feel. It does not work that way.
Unless you think you're a ground hog.
