So, as usual, I was on the computer, thinking about what I was going to post on blogs. When I decided to check out on what was on Twitter. Suddenly, this tweet  comes up from MarketWatch, The Wall Street Journal, regarding a statement made by Rep. Mo Brooks from Alabama. A Republican that claims, "Democrats are waging War on Whites"! 

First of all, What?! Is he serious? I mean, does he not think that there are White Democrats? He says, that this is a platform that President Obama has standing on, singling out people based on sex, race, etc. He feels that the President has saying that, "All whites hates everybody else!" 

Now, I don't know if I missed the memo, but I've never heard that said by anybody! I mean, we all know that there are some whites that hate blacks. Note, I wrote Some! But, not all. I mean, if that was really the case, then how do you explain all of the interracial relationships that we see? White Men/Black Women,  Black Men/White Women, and the list goes on and on. We see their families and their children. We see the love that they all have for each other, that transpires Color lines! I just don't get this closed minded point of view.

Now, this is getting some serious heat from this comment, however of course he stands by it. At least, he's not lying and saying that someone else made him say it. But, of course, there are many people that are not taking kindly to this. 

Personally, I think that it's a stupid thing to say. I was raised to see people, not color. There's good and bad in everybody. So, you can't single out one race as being the superior.  There will always be this conversation about race, and now thanks to Donald Sterling, everything has just come out to the forefront. It's crazy! 

Further on in the post, you'll see the list of wages that people have pulled in, since last year. It wil show you the progress that has been made, on the unemployment rates and how each race has made it, since 2013. 

There's a lot to look at, even though I don't think that the race list matters, but to some it does. 

What do you think about this? Do you think that there's a "War on Whites" going on? Well, if you're interested in reading the article, here's the link.
