Why Racism is Wrong | Why White Supremacy is Wrong | Why Antisemitism Is Wrong

MUST READ ► My Horrific Experience With A Psychopath

May 30, 2012


I have no problem with the Conference of National Black Churches. Nor do I have a problem with the Congressional Black Caucus.

Attorney General Eric Holder addressed a joint conference of both groups today. At the core of his sermon was his perennial gripe regarding voter access. Holder has said all along that personal ID requirements for voters constitute racism; a throw back to Jim Crow. 

The problem is not the gathering of black folks. After all, freedom of association and freedom of assembly are fundamentals of America's libertarian foundation.

What irks me are the hypocrisies.

• We all know that a Conference of National White Churches would never be tolerated. Such an organization would be promptly labeled 'racist' by virtue of its name; no hearing necessary. The same is true of a Congressional White Caucus. 

• If an association of white churchmen were to convene with white congressmen, no member of any administration would dare address such a gathering. To do so would be professional suicide.

• If any member of an administration were to address a ministerial association with a speech that provokes political action, that address would be demonized as a violation of the separation of church and state; unless, of course, that ministerial association happened to be comprised of black members. To address an association of conservative clergymen would be anathema, even if the association were not racial. 

• The crux of Holder's speech was the importance of voter access to the polls come election day. Voter ID, he says, impedes that access. Any casual observer would find gross hypocrisy in such a position being taken by the Attorney General who gave a pass to baton-toting members of the New Black Panther Party who intimidated voters in Philadelphia in 2008.

Holder doesn't really care about voter access to the polls. Voter cares about Democrats having access to the polls; legal or otherwise.

It's a moral dilemma that defies the politically correct notion of the sin of segregation. Segregation, they say, is racist and racism is immoral. The eleventh commandment, "Thou shalt not racially segregate," applies only to white folks. The vast number of race-based professional and affinity associations are, almost without exception, non-white. A white country club is unthinkable. A black ministerial association is acceptable. NASCAR is demonized for its overwhelming white following. A black congressional caucus is applauded.

There was nothing wrong with the gathering to which Holder spoke. There is much wrong with the gross hypocrisy displayed.
