Univision and Jamie Foxx Show Their Racist Sides

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 10, 2013

It is enlightening to view the racism on the Left from a historical perspective.  Prior to the Civil Rights movement during the 1960s, the racist leanings of the Left were out and open.  The Democratic Party from, even before Abraham Lincoln’s time, was the Party of slavery.  After Lincoln abolished slavery and the North won the Civil War, the Democratic Party was the Party of segregationists.  After the Civil War, there were two groups of Americans killed by segregationists; African-Americans and Republicans.  As a result of this reign of terror, African-Americans had no rights in the South on till 100 hundred years later.  During this same period the Republican Party was all but nonexistent in the South.

In the early 1960s the Civil Rights movement began to hit full stride.  The Democratic Party saw an opportunity to increase its popularity among the African-American community.  However, the racist side of the Party did not disappear, merely became less public.  Some Party members with Ku Klux Klan connections, such as longtime Democrat Sen. Harry Byrd of West Virginia, remained powerful figures in the Party nearly 50 years later.  Remarkably, today’s revisionist history created by the Left has painted the Republicans as the Party of racism.

Racism continues to this day.  However, this scourge of humanity goes across the racial barrier and in both directions.  White on black and white on Hispanic racism is appropriately called when discovered.  Often, public figures caught in racist acts are forced to resign or at least publicly chastised.  Unfortunately, racism that emanates from minorities or the Left is given a pass in our politically correct society.  Two examples include:

RubioUnivision – Univision is the Spanish-speaking network owned by Haim Saban, a big time Democratic donor.  The Miami Herald reported that an assistant to an Univision executive, Angelica Artiles, said of Rubio in a Tweet that he is a “Token Slave Boy”.  Ask someone on the Left to condemn this racist comment and they typically equivocate with dribble that we first need to understand the “context” in which the comment was made.  That’s curious; would they suggest the same of similar racism that spews from white supremacists or if a similar comment was made by an assistant to a Fox News commentator?

Jamie FoxxJamie Foxx – Last week actor Jamie Foxx was awarded Entertainer of the Year at the NAACP Image Award.  Newsbusters.org reported that as part of his acceptance speech Foxx said: “Black people are the most talented people in the world.  I, it’s, I can’t explain it.  You can’t sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like, ‘Golly, what in the world?’”  This is not only an outrageously racist statement, but dangerous, one that risk going down a slippery soap.  Saying that people have characteristics of talent by merely the color of their skin is exactly what the segregationists of the South promoted for over 150 years.

****

There is indeed a growing undercurrent of racism occurring in the United States.  Its growth is being promoted by Leftists and Progressives.  Their constituents no longer attempt to hide its racist underpinnings.
