“Children Of Color” Aren’t “Colored Children”

“Children Of Color” Aren't “Colored Children”

Arizona –  -(Ammoland.com)- Simple word play convinces racists they aren't racist. Nation's main purveyors of racism fooling everyone

The lamestream media told you: “Fostering a lack of diversity”

“Kids in Arizona's care are mostly children of color, but those charged with treating them are overwhelmingly white. Experts have long recognized inequalities in America's child welfare system: When kids share identical circumstances except for race, black and Native American children enter foster care more often, spend more time in the system and wait longer to be adopted…”

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Charges of racism, and stories about diversity, affirmative action, “people of color,” and all the rest of the bean-counting racism afflicting our nation come from one side only — the democrats, leftists, progressives, and radical proponents of so-called equality, where no one is equal, equality must be enforced, merit is not a fair gauge and individual virtue is frowned upon.

In a recent cover story on Gannett's number two paper, The Arizona Republic, a lack of colored people, called people of color, in child-welfare management, is highlighted as a problem for children in the system, who are disproportionately colored children, called children of color. The article points out that 90% of review board members in the state's largest county are white, 100% white in six other counties, and fails to mention percentages in the state's remaining five counties, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

Also missing is the fact that 72% of black children are born out of wedlock, contributing to imbalances, crime, developmental problems and the child welfare mess. Why more colored people, now called people of color to distort the narrative, don't step up to help fix the mess that out-of-wedlock births create, is not discussed in the lengthy cover story. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was not quoted in the story…

There is no National Association for the Advancement of People of Color.

Chances that this article here will be called racist for using non-mass-media-approved terminology are substantial. The reply, “What do you mean when you say ‘racist‘ and what does ‘racism‘ mean to you' is typically met with blank stares, confusion, and a variety of answers that don't match, when there are any.

Online definitions, with common threads, do no seem to apply to the terms “colored people” and “people of color,” suggesting the terms are mere propaganda and thought control related to political correctness, and not racism, e.g.:

“racism, n., the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.” The makeup of professional sports teams does not count.

racism, n. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others…

NPR: The Ugly, Fascinating History of the Word “Racism”: The Oxford English Dictionary's first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902… Someone is either a racist and therefore an inhuman monster, or they're an actual, complex human being, and therefore, by definition, incapable of being a racist… Merriam Webster gives the date of entry into the language as 1936.

The idea that race, ethnicity, nationality, genetics, gender or even culture and upbringing have no effect on human traits and that all people are perfectly equal doesn't appear to have a name, though it is perfectly clear that all people are not equal. This is commonly confused with the egalitarian idea that all people are justly entitled to equal treatment under the law. It's complicated. Uncomplicated people, often found gathering in the democrat's party, have a hard time with some of these concepts.

@mr. abj. No, because not all people are citizens. If you called a.. people citizens they would have less access to welfare programs, and receive greater sentences for crime.
As to the article, maybe we should force more white kids into the system. We could bus them there.

“Experts” claim inadequacy of children’s treatment in welfare systems??

What “experts”?? Egotistical members of the so-called “intelligentsia”… who live in ivory towers… and who obtained their PhDs in the back of a convenience store (which cost a quarter for the Xerox paper)? THOSE “experts”?

Well-stated and correct. Putting everyone into various boxes based on race, ethnicity, educational levels, socio-economics, etc., and using “PC” terms that change over time, is the way the Leftists and “Progressives” attempt to control the masses. Those of us that do not do that are then called bigots, racists, etc. This concept was written about in the book “1984”, and also explained the term called double-speak, which is also often used by politicians on both sides of the aisle. The latter concept was also not new, even when Orwell wrote the book. It has been used throughout history. One must… Read more »

@Heed, Once again you are right on. I would like to point out that in the face of all the anti-civil rights propaganda from media, schools, and politicians directed at our young people, WE have a secret weapon… fun. Shooting is fun. Shooting competition is fun. All these new gun games are fun. Gun shows are fun. Gun collecting is fun. God has given us the means, we must use them.
