Personal Racism is Irrelevant!

By Stacy Swimp

 

The Trailer for the 2014 Movie “Annie” has been released. Sadly, all the talk about the movie is centered around the fact “Annie” is played by a Black American, rather than about the  plot of the film.

There are some White Americans who have posted some very ignorant things (surely a fringe).  In response, many Black Americans are outraged and are expressing it all over social media, etc.

While I acknowledge that we do not live in a post racial society (and never will), I don’t see the point in arguing about the racist things people say and getting all worked up about it.

Who cares? I certainly don’t. I don’t care what some boorish yokel has to say about Blacks, any more than I care about what some shallow minded Black American has to say about me and other Blacks who don’t conform to the status quo of our communities created by the Democrat Party.

The ONLY kind of racism I care about is institutional. I don’t care about personal racism.

Personal racism is irrelevant!

We will always have personal racism as long as sin exists, but we must fight against any institutional forms of discrimination.

So if someone doesn’t like the fact Annie is now played by a Black American girl, I say “Next subject”.

After all, a Black American got the part in the film, so ‘actual” racism is a non factor in this case.

Let’s keep it moving and stop giving our emotions and energy over to every fool that crosses our path, no matter shade of skin they may have (they come in all shades!)

For those who claim to care so much about racism against Blacks, please stand against Planned Parenthood’s agenda to mass abort Black babies. Over  16 Million Black babies have been aborted since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

Planned Parenthood places 80 percent of their surgical abortion clinics strategically in Black Communities! Isn’t that “racist”? I think so.

What about lifting your voices against Project Labor Agreements, which keep Black workers  from getting jobs in Construction industries.

Don’t even get me started on the racism of those who oppose School Choice and the consequences that has for Black children in particular!

The same folks whining about someone’s personal comments towards a Black Annie will yet stand in support of opposition to school choice, which hurts their own children!

How hypocritical is that?!

So if you are among those who claim to care about “actual” racism, please consider spending time and energy where it is most needed.

Where actual racism really does impact our nation institutionally. Not just where it hurt someone’s feelings.

Otherwise,  go see the new movie “Annie”, have a good time and quit whining about what has no actual impact in our progress as Black Americans.

    you can have laws against discrimination. You cannot have a single law against racism. It’s not just black and white racism. There’s plenty to go around. It’s when one group of people believes it is superior (on some level)to another and that either because it is a larger group or more powerful group it can oppress the other. Christians should not have this problem because we are made in the image and likeness of God.BTW. Well said.Since i don’t go to movies will have to pass on seeing Annie(wait for it on DVD). Further,having been around the internet a tad i’ve seen the names and pejorative/racist comments made against black conservatives. It comes down to ideology-if you’re black and liberal you are really black. If you’re black and conservative they use all kinds of terms including that you’re not REALLY black.

    Thanks, Stacy. Great article. I hadn’t heard about the movie, didn’t know about the controversy. It looks like a great show. I’m looking forward to seeing it. Have you seen Linsanity? I was amazed at the racism. I thought that the only racism left was the false racism the Liberals accuse the Tea Partiers of and the disguised racism inherent in the policies of the Democrats. Between this article and what Jeremy Lin has gone through, my eyes have been opened to the fact that racism is still a problem. Yes, we live in a sin-filled world and I agree that we won’t get rid of the personal stuff. Those people need a change of heart that only Christ can provide for them. Thank you for making that distinction. I will keep up the fight to have our institutions be color blind. May God bless you, brother.
