House Dem Proposes Federal Grants to Stop Racial Profiling

Pete Kasperowicz, The Hill, April 22, 2012

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) this week proposed legislation that would offer millions of dollars in federal grants to states that enact and enforce laws that prohibit the use of racial profiling.

The Racial Profiling Prevention act, H.R. 4398, is a response to the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, which drew several complaints from Congressional Black Caucus members that Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, was not prosecuted because Martin was black.

“The Trayvon Martin tragedy did not involve a law enforcement officer, but his death reminds the country that every jurisdiction, including the federal government, has a responsibility to exercise its authority to eliminate practices that brand, on sight, black men and especially our youth as criminals,” Norton said. “Reports of racial profiling on federally funded highways, for example, are frequent. If we are serious about eliminating this form of racial discrimination, concrete steps are overdue.”

The bill would take $7.5 million a year from the Highway Trust Fund, for the next five years, and allow the government to use this for grants to states that are taking steps to curb racial profiling. {snip}

    On the left we have Democrats making darn sure we suppress our survival instincts. On the right we have RINO’s and Neocons willing to fire anyone that dares speak the truth. Both parties allow open borders though the right pays lip service to the issue in order to keep their constituents believing that they are opposed to illegal immigration.

    We have a national media that actively and deliberately suppresses the extent of black on white crime. We have a DOJ that looks the other way when whites are victimized. We have corporations that seek Visa applicants so that they can save a few dollars. These corporations also donate heavily to non-white endeavors. We have colleges and universities that openly discriminate against whites while at the same time convincing their white students to support their own demise. We have grade school children being indoctrinated with anti-white drivel from their educators and the text books they are required to learn from. We have entertainment media that openly ridicules white men and encourages their audiences to do the same while presenting blacks as all-knowing and the life of the party. They promote interracial relationships, as long as the relationship consists of a white female and black male. Advertising does the same thing. According to the message being sent, the only good white male is a gay white male.

    Whoever is responsible for these things need to be publicly exposed and dealt with harshly. And no, I’m not talking about groups. I’m talking about specific people with names. Who are they that’s pushing this anti-white agenda? This information needs to be distributed so that we know specifically who our enemy is.

    Will anti-White racial profiling throuh Affirmative Action be curbed?

     “……every jurisdiction, including the federal government, has a responsibility to exercise its authority to eliminate practices that brand, on sight, black men and especially our youth as criminals……..”

    Yes, even if blacks in the 16 to 24 age group are but 2% of the population, yet commit 33% of the crimes.

    And when these black thugs commit their crimes black adults want them referred to as “children.”

    Would it be a surprise to anyone if they insisted on having their booking photos taken,  holding a teddy bear?

    If you’re not racial profiling, you’re a simpleton. Get Real!

    I’m in my 60s. I remember still, watching an un-named segregationist on television in 1964 at the height of the civil rights movement. I was 14 years old. He said this: “we cannot afford equality to the negro for the simple reason that within several generations, we will find our culture dragged down to their level”. As an old man preparing to meet his God…I swear this to be true.

    Forbid they actually fix the U.S. economy. That’s what they are paid NOT to fix by the PACs. So this is a nice little opportunity to divert the public away from what actually matters to something that doesn’t.

    It’s been a while since Mrs. Norton has provided us with one of her amusing and profoundly ignorant insights, but I see she’s back in form.

    She alone provides exhibits A through Z as to why Washington DC should never ever be allowed to have voting representatives in Congress.
