Ferguson in Portland: A “Moment”…

The touching image of a young boy and police officer hugging at protest for slain teen Michael Brown has gone viral this week.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – An African-American boy holding a “Free Hugs” sign stood crying in front of a police barricade at a Ferguson rally in Portland.

A white police officer motioned for him to come closer. The officer then asked the boy for a hug – and they embraced, the boy’s anguished face streaming with tears.

A photographer captured the encounter earlier this week, and the photo has become popular on social media. It’s an unusual image as people around the country protest a grand jury’s decision to not indict a white police officer in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

I don’t know bout y’all but I am sooo passed all the reverse racism that is permitted in our so called “culture”.
Read on please:

Racist Elephants

The elephants in question are living in close proximity to two different African tribes; the Maasai and the Kamba.
The men from these tribes differ in dress, language, and, more importantly, how they treat the elephants.

Maasai men sometimes kill the elephants. It seems the Maasai don’t particularly appreciate the elephants attacking Maasai tribesmen and their cows. The Kamba men, on the other hand, are gentle farmers who live among, but do not threaten, the elephants. Perhaps they don’t own cows.

Please understand that the Maasai men do not attack the elephants every time they encounter one, and some Maasai men, perhaps the majority, will never find cause to try to kill an elephant. The elephants know, however, that a greater threat exists from Maasai than from Kamba.

So, how does this affect elephant behavior?
Maasai men like to wear red robes. Kamba men do not. So when the elephants see men in red robes approaching they react defensively. Usually they flee, or they will form defensive perimeters around their young. When the Kamba approach the elephants seem to be completely unconcerned and just go about their business.

The elephants don’t just notice the difference in dress. They’re also tuned into to differences in human dialect. The Maasai and Kamba have distinctive vocal and dialect differences … at least distinctive enough that these elephants can recognize them.

The researchers played a recordings of Maasai and Kamba men saying “Look, look over there. A group of elephants is coming.” When the elephants heard the recordings of the Kamba men they took notice but exhibited no untoward fear or anxiety. When they heard the voices of the Maasai men the reaction was different. The elephants fled and once again moved to protect their young.

Karen McComb, a behavioral ecologist at the University of Sussex in England explained the elephant behavior upon hearing the recordings of the Maasai and Kamba. “Cognitively, they know what they’re doing, she said, “and they adjust their reaction to exactly what they’re hearing.”

OK … what’s going on here?
We have elephants altering their behavior when encountering different African tribesmen. Sometimes the elephants go into a defensive mode based upon a visual clue, the red robes, or speech patterns. Other visual and aural clues cause them no distress whatsoever.

Has it struck you yet? Come on, folks. This really isn’t that difficult. These elephants are PROFILING!

They’re basing their reaction to encountering different groups of men based on past experience. Members of one group are more likely to be dangerous to the elephants than members of the other, and the elephants react accordingly.

I’m afraid that to get through to the irrational mind of a liberal, I have to state the obvious here.

There is no real difference in the elephant’s negative and defensive reaction to the red robes of the Maasai than a person’s reaction to someone wearing a hoodie or gang apparel on the street.

There is no real difference between an elephant’s heightened sense of alert upon hearing a particular speech pattern over our reaction to hearing dialects identifiable as coming from inner city gangster culture. Skin color? Not a factor. In case you don’t already know this; the Maasai and the Kamba are both black. (Can’t really call them African Americans for obvious reasons. Well … maybe not so obvious to liberals.)

Experience instructs. People — and elephants — learn.

When elephants exhibit this behavior in the wild it’s an occasion for marveling at their intelligence. When humans exhibit this behavior in high crime areas, it’s called racism.

Point made.

    We have known this for the majority of our lives. I’ve many black friends that I love to pieces. I’ve known many black people I’ve no use for. I’ve known many white people that I love to pieces. I’ve known many white people I’ve no use for. And for the same reasons. Trash is trash. Gangsters are gangsters. It has nothing to do with the color of your skin.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. Big hugs from rainy California. Love you Angel. ♥♥♥

    Holder called us cowards for not having an honest conversation about race in America. Well, okay … tomorrow I’m going to start that conversation at the Madison Blog. Hope you’ll stop by and chime in.

    The news media has created the uninformed citizen in this country. Stand up and take a bow MSM.

    Oh, my goodness, Angel. You keep on saying it like it is. You cannot keep this up. You will become known as a free thinking, racist conservative. Yet, there is nothing conservative about what you write. The truth is neither liberal or conservative, or racial.

    The truth is just the truth.

    We have to burn down the racist elephants!

    are they white elephants?

  7. Bob says:

    Ed: That was definitely racist, or biased, or discrimatory, or something. It wasn’t PC.

  8. Freedom Now says:

    Its not a white elephant gift exchange, that’s for sure… Anyway, you win, its satire.

    Peoples Cube has captured the innate silliness of liberalism with this Onion-like quote:

    Obama says, “If I had a city, it would look like Ferguson”…
