Vern’s Venting: Lies White People Tell

By Lavern Merriweather:

There was a comment made by a reader about a post that Brotha wrote where the person said something to the effect of the many black people who are college graduates, happily married functioning couples and own their own business. In other words black people who are successful, well adjusted, smart, well-educated and have a two parents in the home DO exist.

One of the biggest myths white people spread is the notion that black men don’t take care of their kids. Either that or they have a bunch of babies mommas’ that they don’t pay any money in child support for. On one of my favorite shows MTV’s “Guy Code”, the subject turned to fathers. Out of the seven black men that are commentators for the show, only one grew up without a father.

Then, there is the idea that being an unmarried teen girl is something celebrated solely in black households. That Negroes just love family. So who cares if 15 year-old Tanisha is carrying her third kid, right? No talent, dumbass Sarah Silverman even made a snide joke that the best time to have a baby is when you are a black teen. She must have been living in a cave when vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol got pregnant at 17. It was to another teen named Levi who promptly left her to raise their son all by herself then got another girl pregnant soon after. There is also Britney Spears’ kid Jamie Lyn who got pregnant at 16, but I suppose that’s not the same, because they are white trash bumpkins who do that sort of thing. On top of that is the other MTV show “Teen Mom” which glorifies underaged girls that are white getting pregnant. This usually occurs without the benefit of a job, husband or higher education, but they are white so that shouldn’t matter with them either.

Another popular myth among white people is that black people are sponging off of their hard work and labor with welfare. This lie is not only the most ridiculous, but considering the fact that it’s actually white folks who receive more welfare than anyone, it’s the easiest to disprove. Some white people also neglect to acknowledge, or maybe they just refuse to, that a huge number of those working hard to pay for welfare are black people. A lot of black people who work every day to make the mortgage, feed their kids and keep clothes on their back equally contribute money just like the white folk whiners. Believe it or not, some Negroes even hold important government jobs too such as heads of state departments. I can’t forget all the mayors, state senators, aldermen, a few governors and even the guy who currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Yet, to hear white people tell it, those folks don’t exist, the only way for us dumb darkies to make money is by becoming rappers or athletes. No college professors, moguls, authors, TV producers, lawyers and the like need apply.

The major lie that seems to get under Brotha’s skin most is that black people i.e. black men commit more crime. So the killing in the name of protecting the greater good is always justified as is the disproportionate number of young black males who are incarcerated. Something that many of us know is complete and utter bullshit. There is more than enough crime to go around in white areas. However, the problem with that is that those crimes never get talked about excessively. And when they are discussed by the white led media it’s always with about a million excuses for the behavior regardless of how heinous. Why else do you think that multiple women send love letters and marriage proposals to white male serial killers? It’s not just because those women like a bad boy or thug; it’s because white males who kill are seen as tragic, romantic figures by the media. Even the ones who aren’t accused of killing many people like Scott Peterson are perfectly okay, because he’s really ‘cute’.

Despite decades of evidence to prove otherwise white people can’t even look at their own despicable behavior with an honest lens. This is why I believe they love to rehash or continuously vilify famous black males for shit that they are equally guilty of. Or why they keep whining about statistics that say black people are more prone to crime. How the fuck are those numbers going to be relevant when the system gives harsher sentences to men of color and penalizes them more! It’s not that white people are committing less crime; it’s that they aren’t being held nearly as accountable, certainly not the white woman that killed her kids yet only got two years while a black woman who killed her kids got life in prison. Not when you have some stupid, brain dead white woman reporter giving a sympathetic interview to a white couple that is starving their two year-old to death because they claim that he is Jesus, nor the many guilty as sin white folks Dr. Phony (Phil) parades around on his show in the name of counseling [ratings!].

I guess those folks also don’t watch NBC’s “Dateline”, CBS’s “48 Hours” or ABC’s “20/20” and their endless tales of something horrific happening to an innocent, beautiful white person. Usually the majority of time, the person responsible is white too, but those stories don’t get told on the nightly news. White people’s villainy is for entertainment purposes only. Where were all the assholes bitching about statistics for the crimes that white people do which are glamorized by the media? If history has taught us anything it’s that white crime is something to be overlooked or ignored that it was never as bad as those of color like to imagine.

They seem to forget that it was a white male who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart, that a white man kidnapped Jaycee Duggard and held her prisoner for 18 years. It was a white man Timothy McVeigh who blew up that building in Oklahoma 19 years ago killing 87 people. And what about the shootings in Paducah, Jonesboro and Columbine. All committed by white male teens.

Another of the more recent lies is that Negroes are more homophobic, even though white fundamentalist preachers like Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Billy Graham and Jerry Falwell have spent decades attacking the gay lifestyle. Then there is that idea that black people aren’t as patriotic. However on that issue can anyone honestly blame us? Even while there are thousands of black folks serving bravely in the military every day with many others that have given their life for America. These are just some of the bullshit falsehoods that white people perpetuate to delude themselves that they are better. Those of us, however, who know the real deal also know that truth, no matter how well hidden, always finds its way to the surface eventually.

  1. white people can be summed up in the book of Obadiah chapter 1

    here are a few verses

    1 The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord God concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the Lord, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.

    2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised.

    3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

    4 Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.

    5 If thieves came to thee, if robbers by night, (how art thou cut off!) would they not have stolen till they had enough? if the grapegatherers came to thee, would they not leave some grapes?

    6 How are the things of Esau searched out! how are his hidden things sought up!

    7 All the men of thy confederacy have brought thee even to the border: the men that were at peace with thee have deceived thee, and prevailed against thee; they that eat thy bread have laid a wound under thee: there is none understanding in him.

    8 Shall I not in that day, saith the Lord, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau?

    9 And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.

    10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.

    11 In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.

    12 But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.

    13 Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;

    14 Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.

    15 For the day of the Lord is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

    16 For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.

    17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

    18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it.

    PS: Esau/Edom is the white man…… Jacob/Israel are blacks here in the west

    1. I hear exactly what you are saying but the problem is that many foolish Negroes are drunk on the Kool-Aid and are always jumping on the bandwagon. Just the other night Larry Wilmore and a staff writer for his show were being very forgiving about the fact the Ben Affleck’s ancestors were slave owners. SMH infinity!

  2. It’s not that white people are committing less crime; it’s that they aren’t being held nearly as accountable

    This particular stereotype is particularly insidious. It all boils down to racial profiling; for every black person you stop, there are ten white people going unnoticed. The same with the justice system. Whites are more likely to be given leniency than Black people for similar crimes. This is evinced in the disproportionate numbers of Black people in prison(no it is not because we commit more crimes or are innately criminal in nature). Someone also mentioned proximity, that is another factor. If you are going to rob or burgle someone’s home for example, you do not want to stand out! There are many more factors too numerous to go into details on but are easily deconstructed. There is also the historical factors involved. The same tactics used during slaver such ‘patrollers’ can be seen in their direct descendants, modern day police forces.

  3. Lavern said: “Those of us, however, who know the real deal also know that truth, no matter how well hidden, always finds its way to the surface eventually.”

    You nailed it Lavern, each time whitey (Edomites) think they’ve committed the perfect cover-up, the truth always bubble up to the surface at the most inconvenient time for them and make them look just like the fib telling fools that they truly are.

    As far as black men committing more crime than white men and black female teenagers frequently having a baby more so than white teenagers is simply as you put it, LIES! These matters are blown out of proportion and magnified when the perpetrator is black and either not reported or under-reported when the supposed deviant individual is Caucasoid. In any event, these are all FEEL GOOD INCIDENTS for historically depressed, violently sick, pathologically mendacious people or in these matters, white folks.

    How else could one explain white people’s dual disposition of fascination and hatred regarding black people. My only explanation of white folks is that their behavior exudes and are consistent with an organism that’s slowly coming unhinged. It is of my opinion that this is why you get the most ludicrous and absurd explanation when an unarmed black person is killed by the police. The white apologists say: The officer felt threatened; The black suspect wasn’t cooperating; Well, the officer shot the black suspect because he had super human strength and so on.

  4. Excellent commentary, Vern! And these comments are excellent, too! You all have hit the nail on the head regarding these lies (especially about crime) that have literally gotten Black people killed because white supremacists want to believe them! Thank you so much for writing this, and that you, commenters, for responding! I really greatly appreciate it!
