BLACK PEOPLE HAVE FOR
You can kill a man
But not a idea
24 Questions Black People Have for White People†is a viral video making
its rounds on social media. It was that video that prompted the following
20 politically incorrect questions white people have for black people.
The logic? If they can ask us, we can ask them.
Why do you demand we have a conversation about race, then tell
white people to shut up and listen while you lecture us?
Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder notoriously insisted our nation engage in
a serious conversation about race. I agree. However, every time I join the
conversation I am shushed by blacks who call me a racist and demand I listen
to their lectures.
Example: It's socially responsible when you make a video with questions for
white people but racist when we write an article with questions for black
Why can't white people play black characters in movies?
A black James Bond is perfectly acceptable. But imagine the outrage were
Robert Downey, Jr. to accept the role of Shaka, chief of the African Zulu
tribe, in a cinematic production.
Why do you die your hair red?
One of few rational points made by the late Malcom X was his insistence
that black women embrace their natural beauty. Dying your hair red looks
silly. Stop it!
Why do you wear hair hats?
This extends the previous question. If the shoe fits wear it, they say.
That's not necessarily true of wigs. If it looks natural, wear it. If it
doesn't; don't. This principle was understood by†Saundra Williams, the
first winner of the Miss Black America pageant in 1968. Williams displayed
her natural beauty with style and self-confidence.
What makes you think you are owed reparations?
White Americans didn't invent slavery. What's more, black historian Henry
Louis Gates notoriously said on a C-SPAN interview that there wouldn't be
a slave trade were it not for black Africans selling black Africans.
Africans sold other Africans to white people. That was the slave trade,
he said. That's the first thing we have to honestly admit. Read Gates op-ed,
Ending the Slavery Blame Game,

Why can't you own up to your criminal past?
52.2 percent of homicides in America were committed by blacks, nearly all
black males ages 18 to 49 who comprise about 4 percent of the population.
Why can't you admit that?
Homicide trends in the United States
Why do you hate the Confederate flag?
The Confederate flag represents a government that allowed slavery. However,
the tribal governments that ruled sub-Saharan Africa for generations†also
allowed slavery as†did the Union prior to the Civil War. If the Confederate
flag is offensive, then the term African American is also offensive.
Why can't you acknowledge that white people elected a black president?
The Electoral College effectively canceled every vote cast by black Americans
living in red states. Therefore, after generations of punishing white Americans
for allegedly stifling the black vote, liberals and other brain-dead voters
(some literally) repented and elected Barrack Obama. It's tragic, but true.
Without white people there would be no black president. Is that so hard to
Why do you hate white affinity groups?
There are literally thousands of black affinity groups ranging from black
professional associations to labor unions. White people, however, are deemed
racists when they do the same. Why the inconsistency?
Why are you obsessed about 40 acres and a†mule?
Seriously? Do you really want Uncle Sam to send you a mule via FedEx?
Why do you demand we be color blind while you incessantly talk about
people of color?
Perhaps its time to revisit the notion of judging others by character
content rather than skin tone.
Why do you use the word?
If its wrong for us, it's wrong for you. Stop using the word!
Why do you not acknowledge white innovation and life enhancements?
Look around you. At this very moment you are surrounded by innovations
created by white people. Why can't we admit that? Western technology
saved millions of lives by effectively eradicating the Ebola virus in
Africa. It's saved millions of black lives by discovering how to inject
insulin. It provides countless life enhancements that we take for granted.
The telephone, automobile, airplane, computer, and Air Jordans are all
white inventions that black people use daily.
Why do you insist on being a race of victims?
Black Americans have the highest standard of living of any black people
anywhere on the planet. You routinely use technology unavailable to the
wealthiest people of bygone generations. So why dwell on victimization?
Why do you follow us if we are so oppressive?
If white people are oppressive racists, why do black Africans risk their
lives to live among us?
Whats up with the weird baby names?
I understand that is relative, but it seems a bit hypocritical to complain
about racial profiling in hiring while demanding a color-blind society,
then assign obvious ethnic names to your children.
Why do some black lives matter more than others?
Literally hundreds of thousands of black lives are lost each generation to
black-on-black murder. Add to that the astounding number of black children
slain in abortion clinics. It seems the only black lives that matter to the
predatory left are those whose deaths can be exploited.
Why do white lives in Zimbabwe and South Africa not matter?
Do this: Google the search term ;South Africa farm murders; then click
Why is it so hard to acknowledge your privilege?
We are privileged to live at this point in time in human history. What's
more, we are privileged to live in the most technologically advanced and
prosperous society that has ever existed. Let's acknowledge it. Let's be
grateful rather than hateful.
Why do you call yourselves African Americans?
Have you even been to Africa?
