Viewpoint: Racism will end if we quit talking about it

I do not have a racist bone in my body yet after reading this, if you are a racist black person, you will accuse me of racism. When the reality is that everything I am saying is true.

I have asked myself this question many times, have the preponderance of black people in our culture become so “pro-black” that they have come to the place in their view of the world that they are not even able, much less willing, to see any social issue in our life without it filtering through their skin color perception?

What blacks call “social activism” is just their own racism in disguise. They have come to the point where if you don’t give them or agree with them on every point — then you are a racist. When the reality is that you simply disagree with them.

In our city we have a Martin Luther King Jr. statue, yet where is the Abraham Lincoln statue who freed the slaves and ultimately gave his own life for it? Are we suggesting that King was a greater man than Lincoln?

Try living a day in our country without hearing some black person complain about what they deem as racism. We are inundated with it to the point where it is sickening and repulsive. Blacks using their skin color to get what they want is just racial manipulation. We need to remember that racial pride, taken to the extreme, is just a form of racism in itself.

Truth, even if it negatively reflects upon a color of people, is not racism — it is still truth. If you don’t agree with what I am saying, then it is because you are not able to see the yellow flowers as yellow because everything is filtered through your skin color consciousness. Which ultimately means you are the racist, you are the problem.

White people, as a rule, are not racist. See the support of black entertainers and politicians and this quickly proves my point.

Racism, among most white people, died many years ago. The reality is that blacks are the one keeping racism alive. If you are black and you want racism to die in our society, here is a simple solution — quit talking about it.

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
