Dear Social Justice Warriors: No, "Blind Justice" is Not Racism...
Dear Everyone who causes racial strife and division by being ass-hats (SJW's for short),
Contrary to what pandering pundits tell you, there are simple solutions to our "complex" problems. Simple does not equate to "easy" however, because admitting it requires what were once commonly referred to as "balls." Allow me to provide an example as simply and clearly as I know how:
If you want to fix crime you have to enforce the laws. Yes it is that simple, but here's the caveat which is sure to send every leftist into a conniption fit that will last until Ramadan. You have to enforce the laws equally across all genders, races, religions. Lady Justice doesn't wear a blindfold because it makes her look thin. Though a bold fashion statement it is.
No, we're not disproportionately enforcing the laws on black people, despite what media and politicians who have agendas on their minds will tell you. The reason more black people go to prison than white people, is because black people, in the USA, in 2015, commit more crimes. Am I sorry that's the truth? Absolutely, and I wish it were not so. But it's the truth. You do not have the right to warm and fuzzy feelings, and this is, sadly, one of those times were what you "feel" about current "social justice" initiatives has nothing to do with reality.
67 percent of black children are raised in single parent households, which is absolutely heartbreaking. A moral breakdown of the family of this magnitude inevitably leads to more problem children who turn into criminals. Hey, as it turns out, having a mom and a dad is kind of important in the upbringing of children. As a matter of fact, it's the single greatest economic indicator of future education, wealth and success that we have available. Not education, not poverty, but a daddy in the home who's still with mommy. Period. Sorry single-mother feminists who think they're brave and wonderful for raising children alone.
The HONEST solution: more dads in more black American houses, equals balanced children less likely to grow into criminals. And until we address the fundamental issue at hand, simply complaining about black crime in the echo chamber will help no one, least of all the fatherless black children. I know, I know. I can already hear the boos through my computer screen.
Okay, that sidestep about black family dynamics was more like a tango. Mambo? Shuck and jive? Eh, doesn't matter, black people are better dancers than white people. Oh you leftists all in a twist, shut up and keep reading.
Let's get back to the main point, because it's important. Either we are a nation of laws or we're not. Yes? Either we apply the laws equally or we don't. If more black people are perpetrating crimes because they never had dads to set boundaries and establish respect, more black people will get arrested. It's not racism, it's probability. Sad? Yes. But inaccurate? No.
Similarly, if we enforce illegal immigration laws (even just the ones currently on the books), guess which group will be affected most? The group flooding across the Mexican border: Mexicans. Bordering Mexico doesn't make the enforcement of our illegal immigration laws racist or xenophobic. It makes them laws. If an Italian crossed the Mexican border illegally, he too would be sent packing with a sub-par, hot lunch.
Similarly, we would and should treat all illegal Latvians, Lebanese or Norwegians the exact same way. We just don't have them flooding the country illegally in record numbers due to a simple geographical advantage.
The onus of not breaking the law doesn't fall upon our justice system, it falls on individuals. More specifically, those individuals breaking the law. It is not a police officer's job to stop you from being a dumbass. It is the police officer's job to protect the public from your illegal behavior and criminal acts. If a black person or a white person, a transgender man, or a cis-gendered woman who's biracial, or maybe Rachael Dolezal and transracial, commits a crime and gets caught, the responsibility falls on them. To attempt to rebuild an institution of justice to recognize and treat all of the growing "protected classes" differently is not only unfeasible, it's immoral.
We apply the exact same laws to everyone, blanketed across the board fairly. Murder someone and you get time in prison, if you're black, white, or cis-Mexican. A judge cannot mandate a woman marry the father of her five children anymore than the same judge can call up the president of Mexico and tell him to stop making Mexico such a crappy place to live. We cannot put the "hookup" culture up for a vote. People are free to make bad choices, and many of them do.
We're defined by our choices. We chose our own destiny. The justice system isn't there to "level the playing field" between political or cultural groups. It's there to enforce the law fairly. Is it perfect? No. No human run organization is. But to use that as a reason to absolve people of personal responsibility is not only asinine, it's immoral.
