I am not a bigot. I do not hate those who do not look like me. I do not believe that pigment has any bearing on who you are as a person, and the color of your skin is just that: a color. The only differences there are between people are in our own unique personalites ad individuals and in the chains certain aspects of soceity place on us. There are no black people. There are no white people. There are no red people or yellow people. I have only seen varying shades of beige and brown.
What follows is a declaration against Bigots.
I am sick and tired of hearing people like Dana Perrino, Glenn Beck, George Will and others suggest that the real way to help Haiti and other poor nations and people lies in the free market and that we need to stop giving government aid. Someone on Beck’s show even compared african americans in particular, and poor people in general, as domesticated animals unable to fend for themselves! The free market is a heartless animal: it long ago decided that there is nothing in Haiti it wants to consume, and the capitalist system pays no attention to places it cannot eat up. Poor people do not want to be poor, and they are not “comfortable” in their poverty.
Poor people are poor because the system we use supports those who use the power of the poor to enrich themselves. The harder you work the more you enrich those who work less. That is a fact. Stop saying that these people want to be poor or that they are “addicted” to government aid or to welfare: the only people addicted to anything are the rich who are freebasing on the shared struggle and strife of people who work hard and can never get ahead because the RICH DO NOT WANT THEM TO. The “free” market is only free to those who find a way to exploit the work of others. The free market is a slave market pure and simple.
The people of Haiti and the poor of the United States are not domesticated animals. There is something wrong with a system when people, who are born with the urge and the capability to better themselves, are not able to en mass and in a concentraited fashion within particular communities. The poor are not poor because they were born lazy: the poor are born free and are enslaved by the greed of those who manipulate the system to favor those already in power. No. More. Slavery. Free the Market.
