The black grievance crowd made its appearance again this past weekend.
That’s right. The black grievance crowd (BGC) was aghast when photos surfaced detailing Julianne Hough’s choice of costume for a Halloween party this past weekend. She decided to impersonate the character “Crazy Eyes,” played by Uzo Aduba, from the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.”
Blacks are also outraged regarding other photos that show white college students who decided to dress as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman for their Halloween costumes. The picture has gone viral, detailing the costumes and those who donned them.
In any case, the overly-sensitive BGC is predictably “outraged” and “offended”. Their responses, of course, are saturated with claims of ‘racism’ against Hough while the college students are guilty of being “racially insensitive.”
Was Hough’s decision to dress as “Crazy Eyes” racist? No.
Can she be labeled “insensitive?” No.
Hough didn’t decide to dress in blackface to be intentionally provocative; she wasn’t intending to reflect a Stepin’ Fetchit, minstrel-like character to denigrate blacks. She’s not Ted Danson (who was demonized after the fact by self-righteous, racially-moral whites, by the way…). She and a group of friends simply decided to dress up as characters from a hit TV show.
I mean, that is what Halloween is about, no?
And yet, the blacks who were “offended” by Hough immediately went and played the race card- of course.
Joan Duvall-Flynn, the president of the Media Area Unit of NAACP of Pennsylvania said “The current racial tensions in the United States require careful reflection as we relate to each other. If her behavior is a political statement, she should explain that,” she said. “If her behavior is an act of impulsive insensitivity, she needs, as a public figure, to be more responsible. And, an apology for such insensitivity is appropriate.”
Political statement? Impulsive insensitivity?
Again, Hough and her friends simply dressed as characters from a popular television show. There is no political statement to be made! The fact that she was part of an ensemble in costume to reflect the cast of a show indicates neither impulsivity nor insensitivity.
But none of that will impede black members of the racial grievance industry from playing the victim and bullying week-kneed whites into public submission using ‘white guilt’, emotionally-coerced apologies and the like.
And Hough did- because of the public pressure- apologize. But she shouldn’t have. She had absolutely no obligation to apologize to the BGC for their feigned outrage. She’s not responsible for the lack of humor and overly-sensitive disposition of members of the BGC.
What about the college-aged kids dressed as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman… was that racist?
Maybe a case can be made here. But I think it can be qualified more as thoughtless, classless and in very bad taste; even insensitive. But racist? In my opinion, I don’t think so.
Dressing up as Martin and Zimmerman was in poor taste for two reasons. The first reason is- regardless of how one feels about the verdict, a family lost their son. That sucks, period.
The second reason is that the trial was intentionally used by racial provocateurs to emotionally manipulate blacks and to deliberately divide the country along racial lines. This was done in an attempt to give credibility to the played-out and false narrative that America continues to be an irredeemably racist country bent on racially assaulting blacks, preventing them from living lives based on equality and justice.
To don those costumes in light of the fact and so soon, isn’t very smart.
Interestingly enough, none of these offended members of the black grievance crowd had the same outrage when four “teens” (that euphemistic, non-descript word always used by “journalists” in reference to young, criminally-violent black suspects) robbed and killed 87-year-old WWII veteran Lawrence E. ‘Shine’ Thornton in his own driveway.
Aside from the senseless stupidity of the crime and the moral outrage that should necessarily flow from it, why was there no outrage from the grievance crowd toward the criminally-engaged element of black culture that continues to do their level best to saddle law-abiding, morally-upright blacks with destructive stereotypes?
Where was the outrage toward what happened in Brooklyn earlier this month when a group of ten black “youths” (another morally-neutral term used to white-wash [pun-intended] young black criminals) surrounded a white couple’s car in Brooklyn and viciously beat the husband while yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair?
And while committing their acts of criminality and terror, these “youths” referred to their victims as “crackers,” the husband as a “white motherf****r, and referred to the wife as a “white whore.”
Believe me, example after example can be found where these so-called “teens” or “youths” inflict terror, pain, physical and emotional damage on innocent victims- particularly white- and there are no claims of “racial insensitivity” on the part of the offenders.
And as these numerous examples continue in repetition, no one from the black grievance crowd is “offended” by such immoral- and yes, racist– behavior; no calls for ‘careful reflection’; no moral indignation toward these black criminals for giving credibility to destructive stereotypes that afflict black America.
(As a side note, I loathe the BGC. I also loathe the fact that these black criminals continue to give bad reputations and undeserved, negative attention to morally upright, law-abiding blacks.)
But when college kids do something tasteless and stupid, you can’t get the BGC (black grievance crowd) to shut up and go away.
The fact that there’s more attention given to the Halloween costumes of Hough and moronic college kids as opposed to the immoral behavior that has mastered, enslaved and plagued parts of black America is indicative of the morally-inverted priorities of the BGC (and their guilty white enablers).
This is precisely why black America is in both moral and socio-economic complacency and will continue to be, at least for the near future. When condemning Halloween costumes are given more of a moral priority than redeeming generations of black Americans from criminality, racial hatred and self-destructive behavior, unfortunately, there’s no wonder why blacks are in the position they’re in.
