I don't fully understand the reasons why this appears to be the case, but if I were to speculate, I would say that adversity builds character, and I guess blacks in this country have seen their share of adversity. By writing this, I don't mean to diminish the efforts of anybody else (who appear on earth in other colors) in fighting the destructive onslaught against the pillars of society, but I am pleasantly surprised at the number of black Americans who are standing up and speaking out for their values, which happen to be the same as mine.
The immediate impetus for my writing this particular blog post is a certain Liberal Democratic Senator from New York named Ruben Diaz. I know, I have not written very much that is favorable about Democrats lately, but I try to call them as I see them, and Senator Diaz has guts and character and I admire that.
What a remarkable thing it is today for a politician to actually stand up and disagree with the herd while it is frantically stampeding towards the the politically correct coral. Senator Diaz has the courage to hazard the attention of the politically correct war machine by standing firm for what he believes. I am afraid to look to closely at his other policies, because I probably won't like them, and for now, I just want to thank Senator Diaz for being the lone, loud voice of opposition to the state of New York's same sex marriage farce.
I say farce because that is what it is when two people of the same sex get married. They can't and everybody knows this, because only two people of the opposite sex, or a few people where at least two are of the opposite sex, can create something which can realistically be considered marriage. I am not wild about the multi-marriage scenario, but it fits the universally accepted criteria of marriage, which is the theoretical ability to pro-create and produce viable offspring within the marriage.
No matter how loudly they shout, proponents for the farcical marriage scenario will never be able to claim this. There should be no so-called "marriage equality" because homo and heterosexual pairings are NOT equal, and it is a blatant lie or delusion to assert otherwise. I believe it is not a good idea to codify blatant lies and delusions as laws. I think many people agree with me, but most are not willing to incur the aforementioned wrath and the headaches which accompany it, and thus remain silent. They will ultimately recognize the folly of this, but that is still a few years away, at least. So, hats off to you Senator Diaz, for standing up and saying loudly that the emperor has no clothes.
I have written before about some of the other black Americans who are standing firm against a tide of opposition from within their own communities and the entrenched, corrupt power structure. Just because I do not want to miss an opportunity to give them a mention, they are Ted Hayes a true American rebel, Althea Shaw, Jamiel Shaw and the rest of the Shaw family who continue to fight for Jamiel's law to bring justice for their murdered son, and family member, and ultimately justice for the rest of us who are just sitting around letting lawlessness rule our land, and Channel founder of http://blacksforequalrights.org/.
PS, I apologize for the somewhat pandering title.
