“What role did his lack of privilege play in the treatment he received?”
by MIKAEL THALEN | INFOWARS.COM | OCTOBER 9, 2014
Rev. Jesse Jackson joined Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price Tuesday in labeling the death of Thomas Eric Duncan, the United States’ first Ebola patient, as racism.
According to Price, who first made the accusation to reporters earlier this week, the first dismissal of Duncan from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital was due to racism and lack of “privilege,” not error by medical staff.
“It is historical what has happened in this community,” Price said. “If a person who looks like me shows up without any insurance, they don’t get the same treatment.”
Jackson also repeated the sentiment later that day in a piece for The Huffington Post, arguing that Duncan was treated more as a criminal rather than a patient.
“Duncan has a foreign accent, black skin, and no health insurance,” Jackson wrote. “From a theological perspective, Thomas Eric Duncan is one of our brothers described by Jesus as the ‘least of these.’ What role did his lack of privilege play in the treatment he received?”
In response to the comment, state and federal authorities announced that an investigation into the hospital’s practices could take place.
Speaking with CBS Dallas, Texas Health Resources spokesperson Candace White staunchly denied the claim.
“Duncan was treated the way any other patient would have been treated, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care,” she said. “We have a long history of treating a multicultural community in this area.”
Similarly, liberal journalists have now begun to claim that the term “#Obola,” a viral meme used to point out the President’s failed response to the virus, is racist as well.
“The attempt to diffuse any criticism of Obama by playing the race card is by no means a new phenomenon, and has been utilized innumerable times over the years to demonize opposing voices,” notes Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson.
While the countless fumbles and delayed response from health officials should absolutely be questioned, local residents were hard pressed to follow Price and Jackson’s narrative.
“How is this a race issue? The man lied! He’s a health risk,” Dallas resident Stephanie Nealey Presby said. “Still gave the man antibiotics, so they did render services! As far as how the man is being treated, why don’t his family show some sympathy for the several individuals he came in contact with from 4 DIFFERENT AIRPORTS and in DALLAS COUNTY?!?!?”
While the treatment of the black community, most notably by the government, should be taken into consideration in certain scenarios, Jesse Jackson’s history of absurd racial comments, including the claim that a black man is not a true black man if he votes against Obamacare, continue to delegitimize real racial issues.
Of course Americans are racist. It’s the tired old way to make anyone you disagree with shut up, because how can you defend it. Then you get to declare victory and do a little dance.
blockquote>Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto said the anti-immigration views of many Americans is racist.
Zakaria asked, “When you hear some of the anti-immigrant language, the rhetoric, do you think it’s racist?”
Nieto answered, “I think it’s discriminatory, yes, and I think it’s unfortunate for a country whose formation and historic origin relies so much on the migration flows of many parts, Europe and Asia, for instance. I think this is a country whose origin to a great extent is one of migration and that’s why it’s unfortunate to hear this exclusionary and discriminatory tones regarding migration flows into the United States.”
“Today we have to recognize that the migration that comes from Mexico to the United States has fallen. There is a lower number of migrants to balance between those who are coming to the United States and that’s going back to Mexico is practically a zero balance today, and that reflects the fact that in Mexico we are opening greater opportunities for those who don’t want to leave their country or those who have no need to go looking for a new opportunity of personal or professional growth,” he added.
Aaaand back to reality. Maybe we are trying to stop the invasion of your citizens into our country. If México is so fabulous then why are so many people paying thousands to be snuck in? Why do so many illegally cross? Actually, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that the CITIZENS of the country you cry “RACIST!” to are fed up and want actual immigration enforcement- and no more immigration invasion. get a clue, México.

With the shooting of a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, the hatred is already starting to flow.
Many, many “tweeters” have decided to let their hatred toward white people and the police flow, and most aren’t ashamed of it Twitchy has assembled a few “lowlights:”
Imagine the reaction if social media had the same reaction at the death of Michael Brown.
How will the media cover this incident? Time will tell.

For some unknown reason the battle against racism is primarily fought by telling white people who aren’t racist to stop being so racist. Continuing this bizarre campaign, a new video has surfaced with black children from Ferguson, MO mocking and shaming white people for their inherent racism.
This is a typical leftist ploy that uses children to shame adults for their behavior. The supposition is that if even little kids know something to be true then adults should be embarrassed that they didn’t come to the same obvious conclusion. We see this in the gun control movement frequently.
While this video takes the same low-information emotional approach, it goes far beyond that in its despicableness with a condescending attitude sure to enrage even the most moderate of viewers. These kids talk smack about everything, all the while teasing and taunting.
If you’re white and listen to Beyonce; you’re a racist. If you are white and voted for Obama; you might as well be in the KKK. If you are white and have black friends; it’s probably because you are secretly covering up your desire to lynch them.
This video is downright sickening. Any evidence of a colorblind society is twisted into “proof” that racism is worse than ever. If the makers of this video and the participants are hoping to win friends and gain influence they clearly don’t understand human nature. People don’t like to be made fun of and accused of things they aren’t guilty of.
The main point of this video is to call attention to racism by using the Michael Brown shooting as evidence of a society gone made with racial prejudice. At one point a little kid looks into the camera and says, “I don’t want to get shot.”
Unfortunately for this kid, no one is giving him sound advice to avoid getting shot like staying in school, studying hard, and not attacking a police officer after committing a strong armed robbery.
Near the end of the video, a way-too-happy white guy comes on screen to give the spot some “honky cred.” At this point we realize this is not so much a public service message but really just an ad for a t-shirt company. A t-shirt seller with the charming name FCKH8 is using these obnoxious children to sell its latest designs.
Playing the race card for capital gain aside, let’s try to imagine a video featuring white kids telling black adults how to act and think, while mocking their behavior. Do we think something like that would go over well?

Add this to the list of the increasing number of racially motivated attacks that seem to be on the rise in Obama’s America. Three white people were robbed, forced out of their apartment at gunpoint, threatened with being killed, then had their apartment taken over by two black women seething with anger based on race and class resentment.
Last Thursday at 9:30 pm, according to the New York Daily News, 30-year old Precious Parker and 23-year old Sabrina James knocked on the door of an apartment in Brooklyn. Their victims, a 34-year old man, a 27-year old woman, and a 25-year old woman, were threatened that they either needed to leave their apartment or be killed. Fearing for their lives, the residents left, and the perpetrators proceeded to carry out their plan to ‘squat’ at the apartment.
Squatting is typically when one takes over a vacant home and claims it as their own to live in. However, Parker and James decided they would forcibly take over a home at gunpoint instead.
As they were committing their crime, one of the women said that they did not like fact that white people were moving into the area. So, it looks like their reaction was to forcibly remove them using excessive force.
Prior to their capture, the women stole $800, an iPhone and personal information from their victims. They were arrested in the apartment on Saturday, two days after they squatted in it, and charged with robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
To date, activist Attorney General Eric Holder remains silent on the matter. Holder himself was involved in an armed takeover of an ROTC office while a student at Columbia University. The demand by his group was that the name be changed to honor black activist Malcolm X.
Barack Obama has not held a press conference calling for an end to the increase in racially motivated attacks and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton has not had a poorly spoken monologue about the event on his show.
Perhaps that should come as no surprise since Eric Holder, the first sitting attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress, made it known long ago that he does not believe there can be such a thing as a hate crime with a black perpetrator and a white victim, regardless of the facts surrounding the case.
A self-described “Latina” reporter from Univision was left speechless (and looking ridiculous) after asking a White man if he is racist, right after HE was attacked and left bloody by a group of Latino protesters at an anti-illegal immigration rally in L.A.
The man, Martin Francis, had been hit in the head by a frozen Coke can by an unidentified pro-illegal alien protester, while demonstrating against illegal immigration with the Black minister Rev. Jesse Peterson. The Univision reporter inexplicably asks if Francis is a racist, at which time Rev. Peterson calls her out on her own views.
