The following is a transcript of a report from "Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson." Watch the video by clicking the link at the end of the page.
With so much media focus on racial strife, there is a new book with a different take. What Black and White America Must Do Now is written by conservative entrepreneur Armstrong Williams. The book begins with the story of how Williams met and interned for former segregationist Senator Strom Thurmond, who transformed from a staunch opponent of civil rights to a fierce advocate, giving Williams a front row seat to the metamorphosis.
Williams: And so he championed the civil rights movement, the voting rights act. He's the reason why Martin Luther King got his national holiday. I'm the one that set up the meeting with he and Coretta Scott King, because she never thought that a former segregationist could champion such causes, but he did. And so from that experience, I learned that people can change. They can be better. That's why I have such issues in my book of people trying to remove statues of a hundred years ago, trying to punish people based on something they said five or 10 years ago, people can change.
Sharyl: You write that you have never in your life experienced racism. Is it possible that you just never looked at it that way?
Williams: It's never been a part of my growth equate has impacted me in no way at all. And maybe it is the mindset. I decide what I rent space to. I decide what I want to accept in my mind. Um, and it may be, it may have been there, but the good news is I never could see it.
Sharyl: You say your attitude is responsible for your success as the second largest minority broadcast television owner in America. You feel as though if you had had a different mindset, none of this would have happened for you?
Williams: I couldn't have a different mindset. I had the best parents in the world. I had a father who accepted my flaws and who accentuated my strengths, who love me unconditionally. Even though he had a third grade education and my mother had a seventh, they felt that we were the hopes for our generation, not just for us as a family, but people to see that you can come out of the system of slavery and bigotry in America. And you can strive. That is the promise. That is your mindset because my best success is my greatest lessons that come from my obstacles, from my struggles, from the mountains that I've overcome. That is how you really learn who you are. Because a lot of kids that they are soft, they've not had the obstacles. They've not been tested. I welcome the challenges. I welcome the obstacles then. And only then can I realize who I am and what I'm capable of.
Sharyl: To what do you attribute the feeling that many seem to be having now that there are overwhelming racist problems in America?
Williams: The problem with George Floyd or Brianna Taylor, Aubrey Aubrey, is that when you see what happens to them, you want to see them as black. You want to see the law enforcement officers that why that should be irrelevant. It shouldn't matter. When you can begin to group people together and have them lose their individuality and their identity, and they begin to see their as themselves as groups. So whatever happened to a black person happens to you, whatever you accuse a white person off, that's what a white person will become. We've got away from this rugged individualism that is so important. We must judge the cop as an individual because listen, 95% of police officers don't behave that way. They deescalate the situation. They have to resolve the situation. There's no crime, there's no violence. So what we have to get back is blame the individual, hold them accountable and are responsible for the actions. It's not an indictment of law, enforcements. It's an indictment of that individual officer.
Sharyl: So why do you think there is the opposite feeling amongst so many and portrayed in much of the media?
Williams: Cause we don't say it a lot enough. We don't say it enough. You cannot legislate the heart. And the best medicine from the heart is dialogue. No matter how tough, how difficult, really having those raw conversations, where we clean people can be honest and what they believe, even if it sounds racist, even when it sounds, you know what the end goal is a better America.
Sharyl (on camera): Williams says he’s a third generation Republican, raised on his family’s tobacco farm in Marion South Carolina with nine brothers and sisters.
—Maybe, more FORCED integration (( aka “desegregation” or simply: “integration“ )) is necessary. ?
—Why not outlaw hooking-up with anyone of one’s own race ?
—Possibly prohibiting news mugshots, as one SF politician suggests—because ‘news feeds racism’ ?
—Why not study Aristotle on the DANGERS of race-mixing (( posted on your site, but I can’t find it )) ?
More simply, embrace C O M M U N I S M;
for, as I’ve written many times over decades :
“Racial mongrelization is an underlying tenet of communism.”
We’re so very close to that end-game—effected by the Shadow Cabal.
Speaking of C O M M U N I S T infiltration and my past scribblings about same :
I’ve warned that Mitch - reported to have congratulated Biden, this very morning - is
married to a communist spy (( her father is a Chinese shipping magnate )).
So, move along folks—nothing to see there !
My below 2000 essay might help you
track how we got to here (( copy to
paper, then remove it )) :
— Clinton and Company's Accomplishments —
Columnist Jeffrey Hart's excellent Washington Times commentary, "Was the convention a political success?" [August 7th], has one error about Bill Clinton :
"[He] has accomplished little domestically."
Actually, Bill Clinton has accomplished his primary purpose : to dismantle the founding race and culture of white Western civilization, which was his and his utopian handlers' purpose (( read my essay, “White Western Civilization's Mad Rush to Culturicide and Genocide” )).
1) He has opened our borders to legal and illegal Third World invaders; conferred citizenship on tens of thousands of ineligible immigrants (( including felonious criminals )); and dumbed down citizenship tests and requirements—all necessary for advancing Marxists' diversity and racial mongrelization plans, necessary for empowering the U.N. and applying Global Economic Socialism's universal citizenship in America.
2) He has handed our enemies our critical military technologies and gutted our military preparedness; a critical step toward empowering the U.N. —necessary because a dominant U.S. military force in the world won't heel to any one-world government, whereas an equally militarized China and/or Russia empowers the one-world U.N. to negotiate conflict between equal powers and prevent World War III.
3) He has deeply planted the seeds for Utopian socialism by taking Republicans' issues and views as his own—to get re-elected, then writing executive orders and appointing federal judges to eventuate his and his Utopian handlers' Marxist/socialist/feminist agenda (( unethical capitalists work closely with the Marxists - called, “The Third Way”—in order to effect one-world government, because a borderless world means cheaper labor costs, ever-increasing consumerism, and higher profits ))..
Yes, Bill Clinton and company have accomplished far, far more than any other Marxist/socialist/feminist-driven administration—save that of Marxian FDR's.
The MSM and the government itself can help by not putting focus on race whenever there is “news”. The film footage will show the obvious.
Now it is constantly amplified by mentioning About this black person and that white person.
The government also does this when we have to fill out forms where we are asked about race/heritage.
Today there are countless people of mixed race and heritage. Why do they have to choose? Stop encouraging the stereotyping and racism.
Jules P says
The government will not teach the people anything that will make them stronger. Dialogue is communication. I have always thought that the solution to damn near all our issues in this country and the world even would simply be to teach the people at a grade school level how to communicate, how to tell another what we are feeling, before we act it out in anger or violence. Conflict management to handle when we do. We are intelligent beings who should be able to do this, but teaching the basic skill of communicating is never done and so we don’t tell when someone hurts us, we bottle it up and allow it to develop into assumptions, anger and depression addiction and illness. They say what 90% of ER visits are for things of an emotional origin. But just try to squeeze in a new curriculum into the set subjects of math English history and science. The teachers won’t allow it? I don’t know but I believe John Gottman and others already have this course ready and is being used in charter schools. It makes too much sense! Yet all I can believe is they want the people unable to think and articulate how they feel. So they can toss the subject of race out to distract us while they implement their plans to take down our nation. Half my family is loyal to the news they’ve watched for 50 years and unable to realize they’re being led like cattle to a cliffs edge. Blows my mind.. Thank you for the work you do and the honesty with which you do it.
I’m curious what race has to do with handing over military technologies and handing power to the UN? Also what is “racial mongrelization”?
Do you propose that no races should ever intermarry?
Sam M says
Mr. Williams analysis is predicated on an objective and honest media and unfortunately it does not exist. We have a very corrupt MSM and social media controlled by the Democratic party.
I do applaud Mr. Williams positive message,
