FLOWER MOUND, TX — JULY 27, 2020 — As we move closer to the November election, the myth of black victimization continues to be fostered by Democrats and their feeble nominee for President. There was a time in politics when candidates would insinuate about their opponents’ policies or their lack of character. A Democrat might say his Republican opponent didn’t vote for or support a certain type of civil rights legislation, while not mentioning that the bill referred to was merely a frivolous attempt at virtue-signaling by radicals within the extreme left. Even though the bill was doomed to fail in both the House and Senate, the Democrats who voted for it were now on record as compassionate people. The implication being that Republicans are not.

However, in 2020, an election year that the left wing must win if they are to complete their Marxist revolution in the USA, implications toward opponents are not nearly enough. Therefore, whenever Joe Biden sticks his head out of his underground bunker and deigns to say a few words about his candidacy, he must take full advantage of the illusion called “systemic racism.” To make an impact worthy of a headline, he called Trump the country’s “first racist President!” Thanks to a corrupt media, we live in an era in which Mark Twain’s witticism rings true, “A lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth gets its boots on.” Consequently, the President, whose policies have reduced the unemployment rate for blacks and other minorities to the lowest in history, is, in some bizarre transmogrification of logic, called a racist.

On the contrary, if he were a racist, he’d be doing what Democrats have been doing for generations; keeping blacks in virtual bondage in order to convince them that racism is systemic. How else can they get their votes unless they make them believe that their only hope is to vote for Democrats. To continue the lie, Biden has a section in his platform called, “A plan for investing in our communities through housing.” It sounds altruistic enough, until you read the fine print. To cut to the chase it means that a Biden Administration will endeavor to change the zoning rules in communities across the country. Their reasoning will be that not enough minorities can afford single family homes in the suburbs; hence, the suburbs are practicing racial discrimination. By the way, this was first promulgated by the Obama regime. The far left, led by Biden, is now doubling down on that reasoning.

According to the “plan,” those suburbs, which don’t have enough minority ownership of homes, must agree to change the zoning and allow much more affordable housing, i.e., increased density through multi-family apartment buildings. In other words, why shouldn’t we have low-income apartment buildings towering over single family homes in suburbia? The plan implies that those zoning laws are keeping black families from growing up in a crime-free environment with access to better education. Notwithstanding the fact that zoning laws exist to decide  what can be built in a town, not who can live there, Biden’s plan suggests that it’s all about race. Zoning protects all residents by making sound decisions that positively impacts their future. For example, you wouldn’t want a bomb factory to be built next to a school, or a 10-story apartment building next to single family homes.

First of all, according to the Federal Fair Housing Act (FFHA) of 1968, it’s already illegal to discriminate against minorities in housing. So, what does this have to do with equality? Well, to rational, honest people, nothing. But, to the leftist, redistributionist mindset, a person’s inability to afford a home is tantamount to economic discrimination. With that logic, why should you live in a home worth $300K, while others live in mansions costing millions? Your neighbor drives a Rolls, while you navigate around town in a Hyundai? Grab the pitchforks! The truth is that minorities are moving into the suburbs on their own and they have as much interest in prudent zoning laws as the majority has. In addition, speaking about majority, The Atlantic, an American lifestyle magazine,  which is not exactly a conservative publication, recently wrote, “the majority, 52 percent, of African Americans in the nation’s top 100 metro areas live in the suburbs of those regions.” Given that stat, a fair question would be, what is the problem? The answer is Democrats disregard facts and continue to promote the myths.

What we see in Biden’s policies are more radical attempts to divide the country by race and class warfare and make them another part of the Democrat Party control machine. The Housing and Urban Development (HUD) agency under Obama took away grant money from any communities that he deemed guilty of not having enough minority home ownership in their area. Those areas could also be sued by the feds if they refused to show “improvement.” With some powers that weren’t granted to him under the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Rule, Obama added language called “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (AFFH), which would radically undercut the political and economic independence of the suburbs. It would allow bureaucrats in HUD to control zoning laws, control the placement of transportation, business districts and the drawing of school districts. Democrats have made a decision that the suburbs are not providing them with enough votes, so, they must be punished.

The good news is, thanks to President Trump, Obama’s AFFH Rule, which he created out of thin air and basically says that communities are guilty of segregation by statistics if there are not enough minorities in the area, has been rescinded. The bad news is, if Biden were to be elected, that rule would be back in effect and the destruction of the suburbs would proceed as planned.

  1. stop begging for free stuff? whites get more free stuff than blacks…they get more medicaid they get more medicare, they get more social security, they get more food stamps…they get more tax deductions for their mortgages, the property taxes, and their state income taxes…what rock have you been living under?

  2. Just like with addiction, step one is admitting that YOU have a problem. Placing all the blame on others and not being honest about your own complicity will get you nowhere. People will openly help a person if they see that person at least trying to better themselves. Handouts never have and never will be the answer.

    Quick question for you though, when we discuss Civil Rights LEADERS, why do we always revert back to Dr. King? Who are the Civil Rights leaders from the African American communities in the last 50 years? This speaks volumes…

  3. Did Bob Weir just say systemic racism is “an illusion”? Is this guy serious? This man is so unbelievably ignorant and out of touch. Is he actually denying the effects that Jim Crow laws have had on housing opportunities for subsequent generations of black Americans? Is he really saying that all things are equally distributed based on merit? WOW. Does this guy do ANY research before he opens his mouth?

  4. Sorry, but Weir is a racist dog whistler. Plenty of white Republican party people like me have walked in his shoes. We know how comfy he likes his shoes.

  5. Bob Weir is stuck in the past. To deny that blacks have been victimized is simply contrary to the historical fact in the US..In every single area that you can think of Blacks have been treated as second class citizens….in educational opportunity, in jobs, in housing, in public accomodations…Does Weir not understand that after the civil war Jim Crow laws were passed all throughout the south to frustrate Blacks from voting Does Weir not get that it took a civil rights act in the1960’s to attempt to remedy the class system that had emerged in this nation and that even after the passage of that law blacks still were denied access to education, public accomodations…Does Wier not remember George Wallace saying segregation now segregation forever…The rest of the nation gets it…It’s time to level the playing field it’s time for America to be one nation with no distinctions based on the color of your skin ..Wier’s time has come and gone…and now it’s time for the good people of America to let their voices be heard on November 3rd while this President refuses to attend and pay his respects to Civil RIghts icon John lewis as he lies in state at the US capitol…

  6. “the myth of black victimization”
    I stopped reading at this line.
    Hezi – I understand publishing all points of view but Bob Weir is a racist and no publisher should publish his racist rants. It saddens me to see you accept this. It diminishes you and all your work.

    1. You may disagree and With what Mr. Weir has written and that is your prerogative. I am not proselytizing. I want to hear what everyone thinks. If we only began the process of hearing, we may actually understand why people say what they do. You may disagree with Mr. Weir. The post does not require you to agree. the post does however not permit you to siphon what you believe despite what you may or may not know. I am not dimished in any way by what Mr. Weir has said, or is likely to say. You do not live in his shoes nor do I. but I respect his right to express himself as he recognizes life’s circumstances. He may be informed by events that you cannot even fathom, nor even I but, while you may disagree, you do not have an argument that suggests you recognize something different. Instead you hope I will not invite him to speak his mind. I do, an I defend his right to do just that. When and if I do not concur, I can ask him for clarification. Yet on the Yonkers Tribune and so many other websites, newspapers, FB, etc. you are witness to exactly what Mr. Weir write. His takeaway may be different than your. Is that the issue for you? Are you the only person with a deductive capacity? If you believe you are so gifted, perhaps you will permits others to draw the world as they see it. Perhaps more clear than you or i, or less so, In the long run, I suggest he has much to say and he says it with eloquence, his vocabulary is exemplary, as well. You can expect to see more from Bob weir on the YT. He is well read. He is honest and never deceitful. Is anyone you know that can eclipse that conduct and/or standard? Unfortunately, it is a rarity. The fact that you see the world differently than he is likely only because you refuse t accept the reality he has lived. When you learn to walk in another man;s or woman;s show, you will learn that life is neither one tone, color, or feeling. It is a little of this and that. The differences between us are minimal at best. The only remedy is to hear, validate your perspective if your conclusions are different, or let it go as not worth your time, There have been other contributes of comment that have expressed similar sentiment, they only thing that can be said about those that disagree with him is that they disagree with him but they have yet to explain why they are not, except for one person that continues to challenge him in a respectful way. such is life, We need not agree with one another, if only we would hear each ther, we may comprehend more than we presently do.

      Kindly, Hezi

      1. Hezi
        He opens with calling black victimization a myth.
        How many years was slavery legal in the USA?
        How many years did Jim Crow laws persecute blacks?
        How many times did the US government enact laws that cheated blacks?
        How many blacks were lynched in this country?
        How long was red-lining the unwritten law of the land?
        How many black votes are still being suppressed?
        I see our country the way it is and the way it was.
        Bob Weir sees a country that never was. Repeatedly, he states that he knows more about being black than blacks.
        There is no excuse for giving him a platform.
        If you can’t see his undisguised racism, than shame on you.

          1. black voters have been discourgaged from voting in many states and the fact that you are unaware of it is disheartening at best..How about making it difficult to vote by not having enough voting places in the cities where urban populations are disproportionately black..how about throwing out black voter registrations at the whim of white election commissioners…forcing blacks to challenge at the voting booths..how about being told erroneously that they are not listed on the voter rolls in their districts…how about voter ID requirements …how about changing voting sites without notice or not permitting early voting so that people that can’t get off work on election day have the opportunity to ballot…There are myriad ways that some states have tried to block minorities from having the same access to voting as whites…that has to and will stop!

      1. If you believe black victimization is real, please give us some current examples. Don’t give us the typical “slavery” and “Jim Crow” references. Especially after we just had 8 years of a black President, who couldn’t have be elected without a large percentage of white votes. Each time he ran, he beat white opponents. Should they feel victimized because they lost to a black man? If our country was racially biased, Obama would have had no chance of getting near the Oval Office. People who want to keep the myth of black victimization alive are those who are profiting from it with large donations to radical organizations, both black and white. Undoubtedly, some of them are the ones commenting on Mr. Weir’s column.

        1. your comments are irrelevant…simply because a black man was elected to the presidency does not rebut the notion that blacks are victims of 200 plus years of second class citizenship…Clearly some blacks have been able to overcome their plight…but the majority of blacks have faced continued discrimination in job hiring, in educational opportunities, in credit availability, in buying real estate due to red lining, in voting due to attempts to restrict their access to the voting booth…and on and on..Obama was elected as a black man to the highest office in the land..and upon his election the leader of the Republican Senate stated..our number one priority is to prevent Obama from getting a second term…At several country clubs both in Florida and in New York I heard members complaining that no N”’ger should be over them ..So please stop the bullshit and stop denying the obvious

          1. Stop crying about your color and have the dignity to embrace your race without making excuses for your own lack of ambition. Stop begging for free stuff from working people.

  7. I long for the time when political parties both worked for the country, taking all points of view into consideration for the betterment. That seems to have been lost with the current crop of radicals and senior citizens who either can’t or won’t control their offspring.
