The Quick Scan by Mike Ramey



      A published story out of the Midwest reportedly had the following exchange.  The Black man told an Illegal Alien: “Get out of the country”.  The Illegal Alien replied: “Quit being so lazy.”  In the middle of this exchange, the Illegal Alien was in the wrong.  IF the Illegal Alien came to the country legally, he would not be in the wrong.  Further, IF the Illegal Alien expended the same energy in HIS country as he expended to cross our borders illegally, HE would not be lazy and would be able to build his own wealth, in his own country.

      The LIE that drew illegals to America in the first place was that U.S. Citizens would NOT pick crops at such ridiculously low wages.  Thus, agricultural interests and companies ‘had’ to use illegal aliens to pick crops.  Want to attract American labor?  Raise the wages!  Unfortunately, U.S. agricultural interests and companies like to keep wages low by using cheap labor AND pocketing the difference.  This scene is played out by a variety of American companies—many of them paying big bucks into the coffers of the Democrat party to ‘raise’ the minimum wage AND hire illegals to ‘boot’ the labor costs down.  However, since Illegals have checked the right box, and the Black man did not, guess who is portrayed more sympathetically in our ‘storytelling drama’?  Right, the Illegal Alien.

      As I mentioned before, there is no ‘struggle’ in the new liberal utopia.  Just fit the boxes and you’re in!  Further, more Illegal Aliens are being ushered into major urban areas as Blacks and others who can move out are doing so, leaving the ‘loyal foot soldiers’ of liberalism/socialism/communism in control, hoping for some kind of ‘federal bailout’ to keep the party going.

      I also noted in the previous column the list of those who are held to be the enemies of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion—the list recently made public by a D.E.I. officer who has since apologized for releasing the list (and letting the mask drop):

 *White People

*Able-Bodied People


*Cisgender People



*Middle Class or those who own things (houses, cars, property)

*Fiscally Responsible People

*English Speaking People

      Thus, IF you happen to be a Black man who is a Christian, D.E.I. is NOT for you, even though the whole ‘principle’ of D.E.I. is to help Black people?  How?  D.E.I. helps Black men about as much as ‘Black Lives Matter’…but there is MUCH money to be made by pretending to ‘help’ Black folk.

      Remember the federal ‘War’ on poverty put forth by Democrats in the 1960s.  It turned out to be a war on the Black family, ushering in government money and ushering out Black fatherhood.

      Here’s a new kick in the head.  I’ll dare say that many of the not-for-profit groups helping Illegal Aliens are getting BIG chunks of taxpayer money.  Thus, THEY can get help to enter the country illegally—but the average, church going and hard-working Black man cannot.

      More to come.
