A tale of two evil Democrat paradigms

Two paradigms which evil, divisive Democrats have shamefully promoted and exploited for years are: one, white men are burning the midnight oil thinking of ways to keep blacks down, and two, all rich white people are selfish, evil, and deserving of punishment.

No Democrat president has sold the "you have too little because the rich have too much" message better than Obama, which lead to angry protesters picketing the homes of corporate executives. Democrats are masters at creating a hated "bad guy" to further their agenda.

As a black man, I wish to share a few of my life experiences that crush the paradigm that all whites are committed to keeping blacks down.

When I was 15, I wanted to attend art college on weekends. I wrote a letter to my (white) senator. When I arrived home from school one day, my mom said our senator stopped by, saw the sign I was painting for our teen dance and decided to give me a scholarship.

I wrote a letter to then-Baltimore mayor William Donald Schaeffer for a scholarship. Imagine this nervous 15-year-old black kid from the ghetto, dressed in my Sunday best and my artwork between two pieces of cardboard as a portfolio sitting in the mayor's huge office. My artwork was spread over his massive curved oak desk. Schaeffer was kind and easy to talk to. He became annoyed by interruptions and instructed his secretary to hold his calls. We talked for an hour or so. A few weeks later, I received a scholarship to the Maryland Institute College of Art.

When I was a young man in the U.S. Army stationed at Ft Bragg, NC, my pregnant wife and I were seeking a loan. The clerk said we needed a co-signer. A (white) captain overhearing the conversation said, "I'll co-sign for you!" I said, "But sir you don't even know me." He relied, "You seem like a nice enough feller."

After college, I went job hunting for a position as a graphic designer. Upon viewing my portfolio, (white) businessman John Halechak did not offer me a job. Instead, he gave me office spaces, a room, in a high rent office building to start my own business.

So there you have it: a few personal anecdotes that are also antidotes to the Democrat narrative that white America tries to keep us blacks down and in our place.

As for the Democrats' relentless attacks and insistence that we hate the rich, had Mr. Halechak not been well off, he would not have been in a position to help me. Still, Democrats want to, as Obama said, "Spread the wealth around" — which really means redistribution of other peoples' hard-earned money. Then, we will all be equally just barely getting by.

U.S. unemployment has risen to an historical high and our economy is diving downward. The Obama administration could turn things around by simply creating a friendlier atmosphere towards business and not raising taxes. Economics 101 says, the higher you tax an activity, the less people will indulge in that activity. Reagan proved that lowering taxes generates more activity, which generates more revenue to the government.

Obama and company are locked in their paradigm that the rich are selfish SOBs deserving of punishment. Obama plans to end the Bush tax cuts spinning that they only benefit the rich.

A tax cut across the board for all Americans would tremendously boost our economy. Unfortunately, the Democrats' insane hatred, demonization, and jealousy of the rich compels them to sink the entire ship of America rather than save one rich person.

The two evil Democrat-promoted paradigms, white men oppose black success and the rich are SOBs, are deeply ingrained in the physic of many Americans.

However, I learned years ago, while serving in the U.S. Army, that good people and jerks come in all colors.

As for hating the rich, the Bible says, "Thou shall not covet." With the exception of a few Ted Kennedys and John Kerrys in this world, most of the rich worked hard to get to where they are. Rather than hating them, I want to learn from them.

A dear friend was in danger of losing his home. I was not in a financial position to help. All of my sympathy and good intentions could not help him. He needed cash. Wealth is a very good thing.
