Check the images on the left. Have a guess where I got it. Maybe from America’s Ten Most Wanted, or similar from Holland or the UK? Or maybe on a visit to Death Row at Huntsville Texas? Could he be a Somali warlord, or an African dictator on trial at The Hague? .
Ok, let’s be charitable. Maybe he’s plays in the NFL, the NBA or the Premiership?
Or take another tack and let our minds soar free! Is he a biochemist, software engineer, physics lecturer or maybe even a mathematician of renown? Moving into the world of total fantasy, maybe he’s a most brilliant brain surgeon?
Well, fret no more. Folks, I give you neurosurgeon Dr. Eric Foreman, widely regarded as the most capable member of a crack team of medical diagnosticians in one of America’s top teaching hospitals. Medical geniuses worship at his feet, his word is law and he’s pioneered leading neurosurgery techniques. And his father is a deeply religious good-living man.
However, I must enter one slight caveat. Dr. Foreman’s existence is confined to the Fox Channel’s ‘House’ medical drama series. The role is played by one Omar Epps, whose images decorate this post.
Come on, you didn’t really think he was a neurosurgeon, did you? Would you get your brain operated by someone who looked like him?
I'm sure you wouldn’t, and in fairness you’re not going to be presented with this dilemma. So, you might ask, what's the purpose of this post then? Well, the purpose is to illustrate again (see here) how the swinish herd, whose world outlook is determined by what they see on the box, are being manipulated into believing, almost literally in this case, that black is white.
George Orwell’s 1984 ‘NEWSPEAK’ analogy is a bit overdone, but it really is appropriate here. As Orwell showed with the Ministry Of Truth, if you repeat a lie often enough people will subconsciously absorb and internalise it. We’re being relentlessly worked on to see falsehood as fact. Output from Western entertainment media inevitably treats blacks in a way wholly at variance with reality.
I'm not suggesting that all blacks should be portrayed as violent criminals or just as excellent sportsmen. But I bitterly resent being relentlessly fed a complete crock of shit. If for no other reason, it ill prepares our children for what they’ll increasingly encounter as the grow into adulthood. My young Savantette might just think that those black youths on the corner ahead of her are all future neurosurgeons, just waiting to see her safely home.
So it is important. And fucking annoying!
