“Implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police,” said Hillary Clinton during the presidential debate.
Excuse me? Maybe you’re a racist, Mrs. Clinton, but speak for yourself. Of course, would you ever admit to being a racist? Not a chance. Yet your statement implies that everyone, yourself included, is one.
How can one prove that one is NOT a racist? It’s impossible, because you cannot prove a negative. Imagine that I said to you, “You killed my dog,” and you replied in horror, “No I didn’t.” Rationally and objectively, the burden would be on me to provide proof–via facts and evidence–that you did, in fact, kill my dog. It would be logically impossible (and psychologically unbearable) for you to try and prove you did not kill my dog.
It’s the same with racism. People like Hillary Clinton claim everyone is racist. It’s like we can’t help it. It’s in our genes (we’re told). Particularly if you’re white. More so if you’re white and male. Absolutely if you’re anything other than a progressive and a socialist.
Although Hillary Clinton damns herself by saying that everyone engages in “implicit racism,” you already know what her self-exoneration consists of: “Well, I have spent decades tirelessly working for the poor and disadvantaged of all races.”
No such thing is true. She has worked tirelessly at achieving and maintaining power over others, and using people’s sometimes legitimate sense of being a victim (due to race, or other factors) as a way to exploit their vulnerabilities, ignorance or weakness in the name of achieving power.
How do you know if you’re a racist? It all depends on how you view individuals. If you recognize people for their individuality alone, then you’re not a racist. Race is either a non-existent factor, or a marginal one, in your appraisal of people in everyday life. If someone is your doctor, you care about what kind of doctor he or she is, not the race. If someone is your car mechanic or friend, it’s the same. If someone is your friend or spouse, it’s the same. People are appreciated or disparaged for the presence or lack of character, personality traits or competence. When this is how you view the world, then you’re no longer (or never were) a racist.
It’s not human nature to be racist. It’s actually human nature to wish to survive. When focusing on survival and (once that’s settled) enjoyment of life, it does not serve one’s interest to practice racism. People only fall into the trap of racism or irrational discrimination when they started out in the trap of viewing people as members of collectives, rather than individuals. Individualism liberates human beings from the mentality of tribalism, and it’s only individualism that will extinguish racism.
Hillary Clinton is no individualist.
Individualism is the complete opposite of racism. Clinton does everything in her power to encourage people to think of themselves as members of a class, race, gender, sexual orientation, or whatever other type of group serves the interest of pursuing power. She has a vested power (and money) interest in doing so. Anyone who believes her crap is beyond foolish.
Hillary Clinton seems about to obtain what she considers the most important quest for power one would ever attain: the U.S. presidency. The irony? That office only holds value, esteem and power because of people who believed in very different kinds of ideas than she does … ideas such as economic freedom, the right to bear arms, the right to freedom of association and speech.
Like Obama and many others who put socialism, pressure group politics and the pursuit of personal power above the preservation of the rights of the individual, Clinton will bring to the office lower credibility than ever before. Her corrupt dealings in the Clinton Foundation, bad as they are, will be the least of it. In fact, by the time she’s done with the presidency, there might be little point to being a U.S. President. As it stands now, what parents really hope their son or daughter will grow up to be President? Not many, I’m guessing.
So go for your power quest, Hillary. And see what it gets you.
