There’s a furor growing in upstate New York over a pair of basketball teams and their “racist taunting” that spilled over into Twitter.
Of course, only one side is getting the blame. (Guess which one.)
Mahopac, located in Putnam County (two counties north of the Bronx), is a predominantly white school—90% white compared to 2% black, according to this page.
Mount Vernon, located in southernmost Westchester County and bordering the Bronx, is predominantly black—81% black compared to 3% white (ibid.).
Their basketball teams are, as you may suspect, similarly racially inverted.
After a squeaker of a game on March 5th (2014), with (white) Mahopac losing to (black) Mount Vernon by three points (40-43), “racist” tweets starting spilling forth on Twitter, with such gems as:
tough loss boys, but at least we can talk to our dads about it.
My response? LOL—good one, kid! Unfortunately, as we’re all too well aware, the Liberal Establishment has as much sense of humor as it does compassion for whites, so the inevitable wailing and gnashing of teeth has begun, and the demand for scalps grows ever stronger with each passing day.
So far eight students from Mahopac have been suspended from school for these tweets. One was apparently suspended for the unpardonable sin of displaying a…gasp…Confederate flag in his tweet (see image, above).
As for the white teen cheerleader who had her hair pulled by a [presumably black] Mount Vernon adult fan? Black Interim Schools SuperNintendo Judith Johnson exonerated the black players and washed her hands of what the adult fan did—and then clarified that even if the assault were under her purview, it wouldn’t matter anyway. To quote:
…[T]here is no formula I know of that equates hair-pulling to racist rants.
I.e., assaulting a teenage white girl < “racist” tweet. Got that?
Now while there are plenty of points to be made about media bias (e.g., of course the local news is all over this, obsessing solely over what the Mahopac kids said while saying nothing of what was surely spewing out of the racist minds of the Mount Vernon players and fans) and the overall anti-white (aka “anti-racist”) agenda of the Liberal Establishment that is more than willing to sacrifice the lives and futures of high-performing white kids upon the altar of “diversity”, they’re all too familiar. Why beat a dead horse? Certainly everyone here understands what the Liberal Establishment does to whites who don’t submit to their own dispossession and oppression, and who have the audacity to point out racial differences.
What I think is of note here, however, is actually some good news. Say what you will of these kids’ tweets—whether they’re genuinely “racist” or not, whether it was wise to go to Twitter with them, etc.—what is obvious is that these youngsters have not been successfully brainwashed by the Liberal Establishment. They see through the lies; they recognize the reality of racial differences; and they aren’t afraid to speak their minds. This, despite 24/7/365 programming (in all senses of the word) telling them that whites are evil racists, blacks are awesome, and everything would be hunky dory if we all just accepted this.
And, what’s more…they’re “downstaters”—meaning they’re within the sphere of influence of New York City/tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT)—the bastion of radically left liberalism.
As I was rereading some comments on an old blog post of mine, I saw this one from one Chris H:
Is there anyway every so often we can have a nice story/commentary where the good guy/gal wins once in a while?
Maybe this isn’t exactly a “nice” story, and maybe the “good guys” (if there are any) don’t necessarily win, but I do find hope in the details. Perhaps the youth of today aren’t the mindless Obamatons we presume them to be; maybe some see through the veil of constant deceit and bottomless anti-white animus that defines modern Western Civilization; and maybe their willingness to put their counter-establishment sentiments out there for all to see is not so much bad judgment as it is civil disobedience at its most American.
Well, one can hope anyway. In the meantime, I stand with those “racist” kids of Mahopac High.
