Squawk of the Day - July 9, 2012

"After reading about the fireworks hood fights, it appears that Albany is reaping from their actions ... majority single-parent births, entitlement culture, 81 percent of students get free lunches due to low income from entitlements, a school board with zero integrity, school office paying for bail bond releases for using profanity to a teacher, closing libraries, but can pay $50K to a civil rights museum."

For more squawks, pick up a copy of today's Albany Herald.

It's all about their priorities. It's about what's best for them, not for the city or schools. "We do it because we can"

It is really none of the above. We have become a nation, white and blacks who no longer fear or honor God. When you become Godless, all of these things shall come to pass. The Bible tells this. Rome, look at Rome. We studied this in Latin class in the early 1960's. We are raising children who have no conscience. Narcissistic behavior, children who make fun of other kids because they do not have the right purse. We need to step back and look at this because the politicians are to worst. TV also has a big negative influence on kids. Folks, they are not watching Waltons and Brady Bunch. What you see on a daily basis you will become.

Although I don't agree with most of your comments, I would have to agree with you on this . Well said. God is the answer.

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

If you know anything about religion and Rome you know that the Romans STOLE the religion from its original place and put it their own spin to it....from changing the likeness of Jesus to an image that was more appealing to them to even confusing Jesus with God as one and the same...and you are right what did the children watching the Walton's and the Brady Bunch want to become....WHITE...NOW IF YOU LOOK ON TV SHOWS THE BLACK MALE IS GAY A BUFFOON A THUG OR ABSENT. Rarely do you see him in a positive light...and let's not talk about how he is perceived I. The media and newscasts...so yes what you see is what you become. Most children of color see the only way to make it out is through sports or music....even now more black women are on shows with white men....rarely is the converse of that ever displayed

Sally_O 3 years, 1 month ago

So you say The black male is Gay and a buffoon etc. There has been plenty of whites that have been buffoons and gay. So don't give us that sob story. It's comedy! I suppose it would be more appropriate for them to be naked and having sex, or going out shooting people. They have some of that as well. There have been some good black role models, one for example is Bill Cosby of The Bill Cosby show, but how many people portray their lives after him? They would rather be out there shooting and robbing people. Even Cosby will critcise the black culture of today, but then they refer to him as AN UNCLE TOM!

1

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

That's not what I said... I said that is how he is portrayed on television...read the post....And Cosby came AFTER the Walton's and the Brady Bunch....read the post fully before you respond....most kids today have little to no idea who Cosby is except some old guy....look at TV today

VSU 3 years, 1 month ago

And there are white gays and buffoons on there today. Instead of bickering about it, why don't you get off your butt and go produce some good quality shows with good black role models.Show them how to do it. Don't talk and whine about it, do something about it, if you can't do anything about it, then quit worrying about it.

It's TV, if anybody can't define fiction from non fiction, then they are not educated enough to tell the difference anyway.

Reading the subject, this is not a race problem, it's stating a entitlement problem.

Remember, a community that work together will always be blessed. Stop throwing rocks at the problems, and start throwing hope at them. We're in this together, these young people have the mind set of "I have nothing to loose" They believe that the whole community is against them. I hope their not reading your opinions. They will affirm their beliefs.

So to get revenge on the whites, they are sacrificing the education of their own children to make a point. That explains why they cheated on the CRCT so as to pass them regardless whether they knew it or not. Then if they get turned down for a job, they have that covered by crying "Racism" another example of a handout and not earning your keep.

hotdog, I surely don't know where you are coming from. I was raised that you had to work for what you received. Nothing was to be handed down to you. You don't work, you don't receive. I have NEVER felt or had the mentality of being ENTITLED. Maybe those who get the "freebies" all the time and get them fraudently should change their mindset to, you WORK for what you get. You don't work, you don't receive. EVERYONE has the same chances and opportunities. It is up t the individuals to decide how they want to live their lives...................don't blame it on anyone else.

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

I was raised that way too...but where does this sense of entitlement come from? Are you saying that some white people did not have the same sense of entitlement...for centuries black people have told their children if you work hard you can be whatever they want to be and they are angry and some white people do not understand that and the role we have played in that anger....they have seen black people who were most qualified for opportunities passed over for the good lo boy network they have seen police who are supposed to protect beat jail and arrest without just and probable cause they have helped to buld this nation and have nothing to show for it and some white people want them to just get over it...that is crazy...children see no hope for their future...black and white some resort to violence some drugs suicide and the like...until we instill hope in our youth,this is what you will get

Thank you, Rev. Wright. "Boo hoo, I was born black. I was born poor" (and I actually was). Yes, racism exists. Parts of our country's history really suck, but would you rather have been born in Ethiopia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Somalia? Then you could maybe have been a UN statistic, like one of the nearly 1 million children that die each year from starvation, lack of clean water or some other god-awful thing. And, I don't believe these countries are ruled by the evil white devil. Their own kind enslave and starve them. Read up on Idi Amin, Sekou Toure, Charles Taylor. Whether you believe it or not, you actually live in the best hope there is for this world. You can sit on your butt behind your screen and rant about how unfair the white folks are to the downtrodden minorities. Or, you could lose the attitude and the stereotyping, and actually contribute to make it better. I volunteer about 4 hours a week to helping people who actually want to try to become better. I see a lot of hope in the people that I help. I don't know you and you probably wouldn't like me because you have a predetermined idea that all of my kind are out to get you. But I could care less what color you are, only do you make a difference?

Lots of awful things are done in God's name. Doesn't make any of them right. And, keep living in the past. It seems to suit your world view, bro. I've never owned a slave and I doubt you have ever been enslaved (except for "the man holdin' you down"). I just hope that there are more who try to do good than there are of people like yourself who want to stay angry and burn it all to the ground. We probably want the same outcome, hotdog. I just think you want a scapegoat so that when things don't change, you can sit on the sideline and still be angry. And, as another aside, America needs to bless God if they expect Him to bless America.

Welfare destroys people. It destroys their morals, their work ethics and their self respect. Everyone in Albany thinks you are a racist if you say that, but the same problems exist in small farming towns in the north with one exception. The lying, thieving, murderous thugs are all white! the only thing Holder said that I agree with is that we are afraid to talk honestly about race relations. All of the problems in Albany can be traced to welfare....and I personally believe that was the intent of the congress that passed it! Get out of the rut Hotdog and think...really think.

RedEric I am thinking...Some people are on wel fare because the system is not set up for them to fare well....their is also corporate welfare.....so are you saying we eliminate welfare and we eliminate the problem? We eliminate slavery, and the Jim Crow laws and do we have a problem we eliminate discrimination and do we have a problem?

The system needs to be changed to allow innovators to succeed. That opens opportunities for the rest of us. Yes there is corporate welfare...a lot of and most of it does not benefit the country as a whole. If you are on welfare the government owns you. Welfare is voluntary slavery. It should not be seen as a life goal. Only for emergencies.

Before you scream that blacks are entitled to commit violence because of "reparations," Remember that in 1857 there were 15 million blacks in America but fewer than 4 million slaves. The vast majority of negroes were free people living in free states. Most black Americans are descendants of free men.

2

stc1993 3 years, 1 month ago

Albanite, where did you get your numbers? According to the 1850 census there was around 4.4 million blacks around 19% of the population. 3.2 million were slaves. There was only a little better than 23 million people in the whole country. Of the 8 million white people in the slave states only 4.8% owned slaves. Of the black freemen around 3,000 owned slaves & some Cherokee indian landowners owned slaves in GA.

My comment was not white or black. I don't look at the color of your skin. We ALL have the same opportunities and it is up to us what we do with our lives. Now talking about the qualified VS the unqualified....................that is a two way street. I am here to tell you I am discrimininated against 2 fold.....................my age and my skin color. So you cannot throw out there that blacks lose out because of the whites........................I am white and have been overlooked in the same way you described, hotdog. Also, it is up to parents to raise their kids and show them hope. They only see what their parents are doing and are not strong enough to change the cycle. A young man posted on one of the headlines last week, I don't remember who he was but I was so PROUD of his comments because he said he is breaking the cycle in his family and generation!!!

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

So black people in America should be thankful for slavery.....funny

0

USTPC 3 years, 1 month ago

How did you get that I said they should be thankful for slavery?

I challenge you to introduce me to one black person living today that was a slave. Slavery ended in 1865. Even assuming that the person was 1 year old that year they would now be 148 years old. I do not know any 148 year olds...do you?

The fact that ones ancestor was a slave does not make that person a slave nor does it give them any right to request special privilages, exemptions, entitlements, etc.

The point is that none of the African Americans living in the USA today have ever been slaves and the majority of them living today did not have to deal with the separation of schools, water fountains etc. so they need to quit using that as a crutch.

The fact is that if their ancestors had not been sold into slavery (as wrong as that was) they would not be living in the USA and they would not be better off than 90% of the world population.

So no, not be thankful for slavery, but appreciate that they are better off and have a better life than 90% of the world population. That appreciation extends to everyone living in the USA with a roof over their head and food on the table.

Of course sir there are no slaves alive today....but the effects of slavery are still felt by the enslaved in America today....I can show you some people who were violently beaten by Jim Crow segregationists like sheriff Pritchett who are still living in Albany today....the sad thing is to you your logic makes sense....you are an intelligent poster USTPC...but that post spits in the face of people of color and what they had to endure at the hand of white people

0

USTPC 3 years, 1 month ago

No it doesn't. What their ancestors endured being slaves was horrible and anyone impacted by the Jim Crow segregationists practices I have nothing but compassion for.

But that does not change the fact that the MAJORITY of African Americans living in this country today (July 9, 2012) were neither slaves nor lived through the segregationist era and as a result they need to quit using that as an excuse or expectation of special privilages, exemptions, entitlements, etc.

Hotdog you act like only white people owned slaves. Google is your friend if you want to learn something instead of appearing uneducated (for lack of a better term). Go to the official US.gov web sites & enlighten yourself. Check out the 1850-60 census. Go to the DOJ web site & check out the crime statistics in America. They break it down pretty good by race, age, sex (Male, female).

When the black man was taken from his home and brought over here he had nothing and was given nothing. I have no idea how he lived or where he came from, but one thing is for sure, the same white guy's that bought him and worked him were the same people that took the American Indians and did basically the same to them.

The black man lived, prayed and died for FREEDOM and look where it got them, some succesful others not.

The indian were herded like animals, however some have beat the system with their casino's and some are just existing.

The white man got everything he came here for, and 99% of us are still hoping..........

Albanite 3 years, 1 month ago

Just to be historically accurate: Blacks were captured and sold into slavery by black men. Most of the slaves had either been conquered in battle by warring tribes or they were family members who were sold by the family elders simply for the money. The majority of negroes in America before the Civil War were free men living in free states. In the south, the vast majority of whites were never wealthy enough to own a farm, much less a slave.

Well hotdog definately has the dumbest comments I have ever seen on here, sorry bubba & crotch. I have said over & over that the blacks are destroying Albany just to prove they can. The biggest reason I don't understand it is because Albany is 80% black so their destroying their own home. It is their children who are getting screwed byDCSS, it is their children living in poverty because they have ruined any chance of big bussiness coming here.

I'll tell you another thing about big business in this town there is no guarantee that P&G will stay here for very much longer. The plant is 40 years old & all the water they use everything is rusting away. There is going to be a day when they say it's to expensive to keep fixing. They've already sold the Thermacare line. Don't forget about PPMH charging them the highest rates of all their plants that's another incentive for them to leave.

redneck, the government that is destroying this city is elected by the people in the city. Look at the DCSS every vote is 4-3 down the color line. Look at the city leaders who are elected by the people, they waste enough money every year to get rid of most of the poverty in DOCO. You got Riggins charged with fraud then is left on the board to vote to fire the whistle blower. What i'm saying if things don't change this city has no chance.

These divisions down racial lines have been going on before it was a black majority in Albany politics...they are merely doing what was done to them before black people were in majority and it was not a problem then...now it is perceived to be one...is it right no...but until a new generation of leaders merge clor blind this will be the case

Be honest. Under which system was the city better off? Has the city improved in any area since it became predominantly black?

I didn't expect an honest answer. You and I both know the truth, though, don't we? We now have higher unemployment, higher percentages of bastard children who don't know their father, higher crime, in all categories, rampant violence in the streets, gang activity at an all time high, more welfare, and lower education standards with new, embarassing scandals popping up every by the so called leaders. Just read the illiterate jibberish by our top school official and that pretty much tells the story. Keep drinking the coolaid, though. Enjoy...

hotdog, in response to your comment above about new leadership that is color blind....

This will never happen because there is too much money to be made keeping racial tensions high. Don't think so? Look at the NAACP, Black Miss America Pageant, BET, etc. then ask yourself what would happen if there was any attempt made to start the NAAWP, The White Miss America Pageant, WET, etc. I can guarantee you that Sharpton and Jackson would be the first in line screaming racism because that is their bread and butter and how they get paid.

You have Reverands (and I use that term lightly) Wright, Sharpton, Jackson and others spewing hate on a regular basis against the white population and everyone wonders why racial tensions are so high.

Why are the reverands not using their positions to improve upon the gains made in the 60's Civil Rights movement and working to reduce racial tensions and get to a point where people are color blind - both Blacks and Whites? Because it is more profitable not to.

Why not just drop all reference to color from everything - NAACP becomes NAAP, Black Miss America Pageant becomes Miss America Pageant (yeah I know, we already have this), BET becomes ET. Because it is more profitable not to.

Bringing this back to Albany - Two wrongs do not make a right. Your statement above "they are merely doing what was done to them before black people were in majority". What happened to learning from others mistakes? What happened to being the better man or women? What happened to doing the right thing? Because it is more profitable not to.

Instead of saying "well they did it to us so we are going to do it to them" how about we shatter the way it was done and start doing it the way it should be done for the betterment of the city or country?

That would be to logical and not nearly as profitable.

2

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

In a perfect world that would be great...but as you very well know that is not the case....Sharpton and Jackson to some seem keenly aware that racial issues exist and the practices of old are executed more covertly than before...I wish that was the case but as I said check history....it usually never happens that way

0

USTPC 3 years, 1 month ago

I will have to politely disagree with you about Sharpton and Jackson. From what I see they are opportunists....when there is the opportunity to swoop in and scream racism they do it at the top of their lungs and then once they have hatred and discontent stirred up they quietly go back to their multi million dollar houses and wait for more donations to roll in and the next opportunity to scream racism.

If they are in fact fighting to eliminate the alleged covert racial issues/tensions/hatred why do we not hear anything about it in the news? I would think if this is something they are indeed fighting for and against you would hear something in the news about what they are accomplishing or finding.

But you hear nothing from them until an opportunity to swoop in and scream racism presents itself.

0

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

Covert operations are just that covert....the news is is skewed to what sells and what the powers that be want your perception to be...but perhaps you think media outlets like Fox News are fair and balanced....Or CNN is not the liberal media puppet

0

USTPC 3 years, 1 month ago

So now 100% of the news media - liberal and conservative - is part of a conspiracy to promote racism? If Sharpton and/or Jackson came up with proof that covert racism practices existed you are saying that every national news media outlet would refuse to run the story?

But these same national news medias have no problem running the story over and over again when Sharpton and Jackson scream racism at the top of their lungs.

Wow!!!

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

Not saying that...I am saying if things are covert they will not make ANY media outlet....rarely do I see Sharpton or Jackson on Fox....do you?

Sister_Ruby 3 years, 1 month ago

hotdog, here's a project for you that will give you something to do and something to learn.

Go around Albany and count the number of grummammas that are 30 years old or under. Now count the biological Fathers and Grandfathers in those households. Then come back and tell us it's all our fault. You don't need to be wasting your time on here with your Race Politics BS. You need to be on the street corners preaching to the young men about abstinence, responsibility, work ethic, and how an adult man is supposed to behave. Ask Tyler Perry. He gets it right some time. At least he is trying.

4

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

Tyler Perry? Race politics...ask Spike Lee what he thinks of Tyler Perry and a black man dressed in drag coming to save the day( his words,not mine)...I see that when opinions are contradictory to yours you call it BS..you can try to act as if race and class do not have anything to do with politics if you like but you are only fooling yourself....I will continue to post as long as I have the right ......I respect you sister ruby but I disagree with your ideology at times....isn't that what makes our country so awesome( smile)

Sister_Ruby 3 years, 1 month ago

I propose a positive action for you. You propose nothing (except maybe taking more money from the "haves" (including Tyler Perry) and hand it over to the "have nots"). You and Karl Marx would get along well........except that he would eventually put you in a gulag in Siberia.

How about the slum lords like Daryl Ealum who over charge and take advantage of those less fortunate. These slum lords are partly responsible for the demise of Albany.

0

Abytaxpayer 3 years, 1 month ago

And there we have it! Blame Ealum, Whately, GW Bush or ____.

“Happy” what do you base your knowledge of overcharging on? Obviously you have no idea of what you speak about, any low risk business can afford to charge low prices BUT when the risk is HIGH they Must charge higher prices or go broke. Just ask Wal-Mart why the prices are different in the same city at different stores, they “politically correctly” call it inventory shrinkage but the risk varies depending on the store location. So is Wal-Mart guilty of overcharging and taking advantage of those less fortunate too?

But if you feel so strongly put YOUR money where your mouth is. Buy a few houses and charge a lower rent, they will flock to you. Then in two years let us know how great that investment was.

We wouldn't have racism if the blacks didn't raise their kids over time blaming the whites cause of their ancestors. It's not my fault my ancestors had slaves. Plus our dear Obama plays the race card everytime he opens his mouth. If you'll read the Bible whites were slaves long before blacks were but, you don't hear us whining.

hotdog 3 years, 1 month ago

That's by far THE DUMBEST STATEMENT EVER....we wouldn't have racism if black people would not raise their kids to blame white people....no it is not your fault that white people have benefitted from slavery is it either ...same lame comeback...sad thing is you probably believe your logic is sound

A friend of mind was telling me about this moron named hotdog...hotdog? are you serious? hotdog? Anyway this friend was telling me about this moron claiming to be a white person, bickering with everyone and by reading one of his posts I saw it was the exact duplicate of a post by a person identifying himself as a proud black person talking the same subjects on another story. Talk about being racist...hotdog is taking it to a new level. I detest people calling other people racist when they themselves are racist. If you can't be part of the solution, don't add to the problem....... hotdog...LOL give me a break.

Somebody...glad you are taking time out of your life to discuss me....wish I could say the same....don't know who this proud person is...but it is not me...that race card card you play is a joke....truth is my views are different from yours and you don't like them.....get over it....and you can't make me be something that I am not, and that is black.....sorry....

Somebody 3 years, 1 month ago

No need to be glad, just pointing out the phony person that you are. You say you are not that other poster, but I find it peculiar that a post you wrote above was word for word, letter by letter on another post by another poster posing as a black person on an entirely different post from another day. You are obviously a phony, or a person who doesn't know who he is or who he wants to be. Why hide under a different name? Are you that much of a coward? Don't bother responding because I won't be looking back to read your response, it would be like talking to yourself, which the lonely person you are, you probably do that anyway. Have a good day hotdog, don't stay out in the sun too long, you might get roasted.
