2.14 If Whites in America Aren't all Racist Against Blacks Why are We Told That So Many Are?

Describing a political opponent as a racist is a way to get people to vote against him.  That is a reason that Democrats portrayed Trump and his supporters as evil racists. Many Republicans oppose an open border which allows illegal immigrants and illegal and dangrous drugs to pour into the country.  Former president and Democrat Barack Obama said that this was because of Republican racism toward black people.  Jesse Watters showed a clip of Barack saying this and then showed a clip of Barack saying the opposite in 2008 when he wanted to be chosen to be the Democrat candidate for president.  In 2008 Barack Obama thought speaking out against immigration would help him win the Democratic primary.  In 2022 he believed that accusing Republicans of racism would help the Democrats.  There was a time when the majority of Democrats were against immigration across the Southern border because they thought it would lose them votes from American workers who didn't want to lose their jobs to foreigners.  The video below is a great example of how a Democratic leader will say, not what he believes, but whatever he thinks will help the Democrats win even if it involves slandering the Republicans and convincing minorities that Republicans hate them and are racist.


Another reason to portray a group as racist toward your own group is to convince them to pay your group reparations. The Black Lives Matter organization has collected at least 90 million dollars in donations. These donations may be from companies who believe they are donating to a good cause. They may also be from organizations that are afraid that if they don't donate they will face black violence. Accusing whites of racism is a way to get black people to be threatening and violent so that whites are scared and donate money.

Hawk Newsome, a New York leader of Black Lives Matter made threats in the interview below.


If racism is the reason for poor blacks not making as much money as whites and whites are racist against Asians than Asians should not make as much money as whites.  Here is a table showing average household incomes of Asians and Whites in 2019.

Indian Americans



Taiwanese Americans



Filipino Americans



Indonesian Americans



Japanese Americans



White Americans




Whites have the lowest average household income in this list.  Why is that?  Nigerians who come here do a lot better financially than American blacks.  If America is racist is against blacks why is that?  Lauren Chen brings that question up in her outstanding video below.  Lauren talks about the woke left in the video.  Woke means alert to injustice and discrimination.  Problem is much of the woke left sees discrimination and racism where there isn't any and refuse to see black racism against Asians.



The reaction of many black people to Lauren's truth telling has been hostile.  Maybe that hostility is one of the reasons that they don't succeed.  Maybe if they were less hostile and listened they would be more successful.

Why would blacks attack Asians.  Thomas Sowell explains one reason and maybe the main reason below.


You can see the resentment of Black Lives Matter people against white people in the video below.  The white people are not being systemically racist they are just eating their lunches.  The BLM people are assuming that the diners and the restaurant owners have money and they are angry about that.  There is a lot of anger and cursing in the video and it is frightening.  If you are a child  you may not want to watch it.


Larry Alexander wrote in the American Thinker that:

Hate crimes against Asians, mainly assaults, have indeed increased in the last year, as has violent crime in general.  But even taking the highest estimate of their number I could find,  the number of such assaults is tiny: 421.  To put that number in perspective, if each of those assaults was committed by a separate person, there would have been only one anti-Asian assaulter per 800,000 people, committing only one such assault in a year.  The chance of an Asian suffering an assault at the hands of an anti-Asian bigot would have been considerably less than the chance of being injured taking a bath, and much, much less than the chance of being injured or killed driving a car.

So why is the left so anxious to portray the country as beset by an avalanche of anti-Asian bigotry and violence when the truth is so obviously to the contrary?  There are three reasons.

One reason is power.  The left wants Asians to join blacks and Hispanics as reliable votes for Democrats.  So it wants Asians to believe that Republicans and their voters are white supremacists who hate them.
