No Whites Allowed

By: Snarky Basterd

While professional race-baiter Al “Somewhere Inside Me There’s a Little Boy (Because I Ate Him)” Sharpton goes for the jugular — and the contents of your house — and the owner of “Los Suns” introduces Spanglish to the NBA in protest of Arizona’s immigration law, back in the rest of real America, racism is as strong as ever:

An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.

Yes. You read that correctly. White students weren’t even allowed to enter by the back door, let alone attend a whites-only version of the event. They were told to stay home. As Joe Biden would say, if he weren’t trying so badly to fit in, this is a big f***in’ deal.

Not settling with telling all non-black students to but out, Madison intimidated the white students who felt, and in fact were, slighted because of the color of their skin:

District spokeswoman Liz Margolis said after the trip was over, those who went returned to their fifth-grade class and were greeted by boos by those who didn’t go on the trip. Margolis said Madison, who is black, heard the boos, and went to talk to the class. She said he and the class had a “discussion” about race issues.

“He wasn’t yelling at them. He was very passionate about it,” Margolis said.

He even got away with being “anti-Muslim” (surely the ghost of a teabagger must have possessed Madison at the time):

Parents have complained he was yelling at the class and belittled a Muslim girl who said she also had experienced racism and discrimination.

If Madison were white and kept black students from attending an event, every member of the driveby media would be screaming for his resignation from the top of Mount Rushmore. You’d have the pResident of these United (in name only) States hastily calling a press conference to denounce Madison for acting stupidly. In the very least, you’d have the Detroit Tigers changing their name to the Detroit Blacks, in support of black students, for their home games this week.

Instead, we now live in a country where it’s justifiable to reverse discriminate in order to achieve Sharpton’s moronic vision of the future: We won’t have true social justice until everything is “equal in everybody’s house” — except his.

Instead, we’re left to point out the folly of the left through parody and snark

… and even that practice is becoming segregated from what used to be a wide-open innerwebz faster than you can count the number of luxury homes Al Gore owns.

Instead, I’m left to admit that, for the first time in my adult life, I’m not proud of (the many hypocritical people who live in) my country. Actually, to tell you the truth, I haven’t been proud of them since long before Nov. 4, 2008.

“As the dollar breaks down, you’ll also likely see disruptions in supply chains, including shipments of food to grocery stores. People should consider maintaining stockpiles of basic goods needed for living, much as they would for a natural disaster. I sit on the Hayward fault in California. I have a supply of goods and basic necessities in case something terrible happens—natural or man-made—that will carry me for a couple of months. It may take that long for a barter system to evolve, which I think is what you’re going to end up with; at least until a new currency system is reorganized and you get a government that’s able to bring its fiscal house into order. No currency system in the U.S. is going to work unless the fiscal conditions that drove it into oblivion are also addressed.” – John Williams of ShadowStats, by way of Jim Sinclair’s JSMineset web site
