I only know one group of people who would even have a question like this come to mind. The “compassionate” liberally minded politician with an enlightened sense of social justice. I don’t like the idea of social justice. It presumes one demographic of people is so down trodden they need someone to step in on their behalf. Speaking for myself, it has never occurred to me that anyone should do something with them — why should we?
Social justice activists truly believe they have the most sincere of good intentions. They see it as their mission to eradicate the discrimination and veiled racism which they believe pervades our society. But isn’t it racist to claim that Blacks can’t take care of themselves; that they won’t work and will become a burden upon the State through welfare. Is the problem white privilege and employers who won’t employ them if they don’t have to? Is it because of racism that young Blacks become poor criminals overrunning all our jails and prisons, and thus you feel as though you must do something.
Let me answer the question. Do nothing. Let them succeed or fail on their own. They need no intervention by the elitist know-more-thans. They can go to school, no one stands in the way. They can work; millions of Black people have great jobs all across America. They can make their own way, can’t they? Do they really need your help? Or are they not smart enough to understand, without your help, that if they work hard they can succeed, and if they don’t they’ll fail.
How many Blacks must succeed on their own before you concede that you don’t know what’s best for them? How many must become judges, doctors, actors, and CEOs of their own accord before you realize that your butting into their lives isn’t required or helping? Are you afraid they can’t succeed without your help? Perhaps you’re afraid they won’t. Or perhaps still you’re afraid they will and prove that they didn’t need you at all.
