“I Had to Be White”

December 29, 2012 at 12:50 PM 2 comments

Recently, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson (of Bond Action) stated the following:  “White Americans are under assault, and with the re-election of President Barack Obama, black racism is on the rise!” [1]  What is amazing – for those who are not aware – is that Rev. Peterson is black, but not only understands what is happening in America with respect to race relations, but is also willing to warn people.  This is something those in Washington, DC and Hollywood remain purposefully oblivious to.

In his most recent article he called “Black Racism Unchained,” Peterson spoke of Jamie Foxx, stand-up comedian and actor.  “There’s no better example of black racism than when actor Jamie Foxx hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ and joked about his new film, ‘Django Unchained’: ‘I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?’ He went on to say, ‘My president, President Obama, is back up in the White House for four more years. How black is that?‘ [2]

Peterson commented that had any white actor made comments like that about those in the black race, the race-baiters and the media would have been out in force to condemn it. [3]  Of course, there is a certain political correctness today that allows and even encourages blacks to offer racially motivated comments that whites are essentially supposed to simply laugh at and accept as truth, or all in good fun.  While some may believe that Foxx was simply offering entertainment for the sake of it, the truth may well be that he believes what he says and so do many other black entertainers.

Of course, there are a number of cogent points that Foxx completely misses.  He did not get where he is today solely because of other black people.  He “made it” because of whites and non-whites alike.  To think that he can now begin to castigate the idea of white racism (as if there is no such thing as black racism) is not only inexcusable, but simply proves that his racism runs deep.  But when did this nation come to a point where being black and racist is perfectly acceptable?

One of things Jamie Foxx believes is that he actually goes through his days being “white.”  “But the minute I leave my house, I gotta put my other jacket on and say, ‘Hey, Thomas, Julian and Greg.’ And I gotta be a certain person. But when I get home my other homies are like, How was your day? Well, I only had to be white for at least eight hours today, [or] I only had to be white for four hours.” [4]

One might be forced to ask what does it mean to be white?  What is Foxx saying?  He doesn’t change the color of his skin.  Is his speech affected somehow?  How does he act differently when he is around whites that obviously forces him to “hide” is true nature?  Is he saying that it is when he is being white that he makes his money?  Apparently, whenever he leaves his house, he must put the other jacket on and be white presumably?  This is asinine to say the least.  If he actually believes that, then no wonder he is angry, but the question is are his beliefs based in any kind of actual reality?

I think we would all agree that most of us act differently around our family and close friends than we do when we are simply in public somewhere around strangers.  Most of us understand that it is not polite to stick your finger up your nose and pull something out, then wipe in on your clothing or the table-cloth.  Even though most people will do this while driving alone in a car, we all laugh at the other individual we catch doing that in the privacy of his car, as if we would never do that!

We also know that it is not socially acceptable to flatulate or belch in public as it is considered offensive to most people.  Even when the occasional burp slips, we immediately cover our mouths and offer an “excuse me” on our behalf.  There is a certain amount and type of decorum that is expected when people are in public.  Anything that deviates from that unwritten norm is frowned upon.  Is that white or is it simply representative of polite people sharing space in the same society?

By the same token, most of us will watch our language while in public – although that has changed greatly over the past several decades.  Most people still have a respectful attitude toward other people they do not know because in public, there is an accepted decorum that is in place by which people act toward one another.

Of course, this is not always the case.  There are plenty of people who swear at each other and have no qualms about coming to physical blows with their fists if they feel the situation warrants it.  This was not the case during the Victorian era when people went out of their way to present a polite front toward others even if they inwardly hated that other individual.  It wasn’t even so much the case when I was growing up.  Today however, the way people act toward one another leaves a lot to be desired and I believe it all stems from the same problem, regardless of race.  I’ll get to that in a moment.

So what is Jamie Foxx referring to here when he says he believes he has to act or be white when he is not home?  I can only imagine because I’ve heard enough “ghetto chatter” and Ebonics to realize that many blacks prefer to use their own “language,” listen to their own music as loud as they want to, and essentially “be themselves” which too often means using as many four-letter words as possible and as loudly as possible as if there is no one else in the world that matters.  To them, that’s probably true.  But it’s not simply blacks that are this way.  Many young people who listen to death metal or hip-hop are the same way.  They want to “be themselves” which means be something that is not recognized by society as legitimate or acceptable while in public.  It is to that attitude that people rebel.

If we follow Foxx’s “logic” (such as it is), we would then be forced to say that being white means being respectful of others, speaking in a way that shows that respect toward others and being respectful of other people’s space.  It means that we don’t use every possible excuse to be racist while blaming one’s racist views on another race (kind of like blaming the woman for being raped because of the way she was dressed; the old, she was “asking” for it mentality, which is completely repugnant to thinking people).

I think Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is correct.  Black racism toward whites is increasing throughout America.  I recently heard Spike Lee say something to the effect that he was not going to see ‘Django Unchained‘ because it painted the wrong image of the history of slavery in this country (my paraphrase).  He continued by stating that his ancestors were stolen from Africa and Foxx’s movie did not adequately or correctly portray it.  He also stated black slavery in America is not a Sergio Leone movie, but a real travesty (which again, is my paraphrase).

That may be and I’m sure there are many of us who wished that African tribes had never gone to war with one another and then sold the losers to the captains of slave ships so they could be brought over to America and sold to white slave owners – none of which were related to me, since both sets of my grandparents came over here from Europe through Ellis Island.

Think of it.  Had the African tribal leaders never sold those they conquered to slave ship captains, we would probably not be dealing with people like Spike Lee, Jamie Foxx, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Sheila Lee Jackson, and many other race-baiters we all know and don’t love.  Amazing, isn’t it?  Something that happened a few centuries ago that I (and multitudes of whites) had absolutely nothing to do with continues with us today and since I am white and alive, I am actively guilty of being racist simply because of my race.  Wow, yet blacks like Foxx have an excuse for being racist and it is one that is routinely accepted by whites and other blacks as fact, when it is simply an excuse to be racist.

As far as Jamie Foxx is concerned, he claims he has to act a certain way – a white way – while he is away from his home and his “homies.”  He doesn’t believe he is able to be himself, but must be white in order to be accepted.  He’s full of it.  There is nothing wrong with people respecting one another, watching how they talk, how they act, and how they appear in public.  We all have to do that!

How many times have you been too tired to be around people, but you’ve done it anyway because it is “expected”?  How many times have you engaged someone in conversation that you really didn’t have the energy or concern to be involved with, yet you did it because of public expectations?  It has nothing to do with being “white” and everything to do with simply being and doing what is expected in society to show respect for one another.

As I said, that has been changing for a long time.  Years ago, people were not boisterous and obnoxious in public.  They didn’t drive their cars with their music blaring out of it so that you could not even hear yourself think several cars away.  So what has happened?  Simply put, people have become much more self-centered and without going back and quoting the same Bible verses I’ve quoted many times before, Jesus, Paul, and Peter told us several thousand years ago that in the end times, people would become extremely self-centered.

Of course, if you are black today, then you have provided yourself an excuse, just like Jamie Foxx has done.  His racism is due to all the pressure he feels from having to be “white” nearly every day in order to be successful.  Really?  What’s my excuse when I go out into public and societal pressure expects me to be polite and personable to people I do not even know?  There is no excuse.

I can’t be myself” is the phrase most often heard today by everyone.  Young people say it.  Old people say it.  Most everyone says it but the only ones who actually use racism as an excuse to say it are blacks like Jamie Foxx.  It simply proves that having lots of money doesn’t take the “stupid” or “racism” out of a person.

I am very thankful for people like Jesse Lee Peterson who are taking the time to warn white folks that black racism is on the rise and is simply going to get worse if we simply sit back and continue to accept it as normal.  Many do so because of white “guilt.”  I have nothing to be guilty of because I’ve never owned a person – black, white, or otherwise.  None of my ancestors in this country ever owned one either.  Moreover, I do my best to at least attempt to treat people as individuals and respectfully, though I know of no one who can do this 100% of the time.  We all have inner issues that we deal with on a daily basis.

I have heard enough Ebonics, slang, the N-word, the F-word, and all the rest to make me wish for a time when people did not even swear in public.  Now, our ears are treated to all kinds of filth mainly because people feel they have to “be themselves” all the time.  This includes flatulence, belching, picking noses, and all the rest.  Is that what Jamie Foxx wants?  Should we toss all decorum out the window to allow people to be who they truly are in their hearts?  It’s coming to that, but I’d rather postpone it as long as possible, thank you.

Remember that rap group from 1989 called 2 Live Crew who put out the album ‘As Nasty as I Wanna Be‘?  Shortly after their album went certified double platinum, a district court ruled it to be legally obscene.  The ruling was eventually overturned.  Since then, many music CDs that are deemed to have “explicit” language on them come with a warning sticker.

The trouble is that society in general has been sinking into an ever-expanding morass of general godlessness and sexual perversion.  It’s not going to get any better either.  When we consider the way people like Jamie Foxx think, we can be assured that humanity will continue to sink lower into the abyss of self-centered thinking, which is the root of the trouble in the first place.  People worship themselves.  They are their own gods.

Only people who are self-centered come to a point of caring little or nothing about other people.  Self-centered individuals only want what’s best for themselves and are ready to blame everyone else for the way they feel about themselves.  That’s the nature of this tremendously overindulged beast and it is why people have been forcing society to move away from engendering respect for one another to a mentality of entitlement that simply causes people to become resentful for the “hold” they believe others have over them even when it’s not true.

All of us are expected to act a certain way when we are in public.  It is what it is and that is the way societal pressure affects everyone.  It’s not a white thing vs. a black thing.  It is a respect thing vs. a lack of respect thing.  Either we respect all people as being part of society and we endeavor to treat them with respect simply because they are part of the society that we share together, or we choose to not respect others even though we are all part of the same society.  That’s what it comes down to, but for people like Jamie Foxx, they have added another level they call “white racism” that they believe allows them to say things and act a certain way because of their race.  It’s completely asinine and untrue but it doesn’t matter to them.  The only thing that matters is that they believe it to be true and because they are black, they are entitled.

    I don’t act a whole lot different in public than I do at home. I am more relaxed at home because there are far fewer ‘other people’ with which I must be concerned. Maybe if our friend Jamie spent more time in the objective point of view he might have a better understanding. I mean it’s his house, why is he upset that he gets to act the way he wants when he’s there.

    Wheew! That was a good vent! I have much trouble with the question of what race are you when I fill out certain paper work. I usually say “HUMAN” and I tell them I am offended by that idiotic question.
    We as Americans are all mixed up! I was born in Germantown Philly and man you should have seen the mixture of ethnic backgrounds in that town! I guess there was prejudice but in the 60’s we were dumb kids until Martin Luther King came on the scene and we became aware of the situation in the southern states. We had no idea because up north all people shared the same restaurants, water fountains, swimming pools, toilets etc etc etc. Unless you were rich than it didn’t matter if you were purple, if you had no $$ you were out! So many of us were right on with Brother King as a liberator and a spiritual leader to wake people up to the changes needed in this country for all Americans. It’s sad but respect in our society today has
    gone down the plug hole! I remember my cousin knew Bill Cosby’s brother and I grew up in Hunting Park Philly nearby. we had many friends of all different countries of origin. I don’t know what happened but today King’s dream seems more distant and it’s sad!
