No. 129 – May 25, 2012



I thought that headline would grab your attention.  And it should – because all black people are not dumb.

But it seems like a lot of them do not THINK for themselves.  Any word, phrase or remark that has any inkling of “racism” in it and many Americans of African ancestry seem to go ballistic.

Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton immediately come to mind – not to mention Jeremiah Wright.

But yet, when race cannot be pointed to – not a damn word dare be uttered.  It is just another “News” story.

A case in point:

A promising high school football player, Brian Banks, was just acquitted of rape – after spending seven years in prison on false charges.

Banks was black.  But we do not know exactly what color his accuser was.  Black or white – or brown or red – for that matter.

I can only assume that the girl was “of color” – whatever that means.  Why?  Because her race was never explicitly stated.

The media only referred to her as “Wanetta Gibson” but declined to state the color of her skin.

I venture to say that if the girl had been white – the media would have played that part up BIG TIME.  So I am just guessing that the girl was black.  I am willing to make that another one of my “predictions” right here in print.

Assuming that I am correct, this story will fade fairly quickly – because the “race card” cannot be played to the advantage of the liberal press, the liberal establishment, nor the upcoming November election.


Simply this.

At first, Americans of African ancestry were mainly Republicans – because Lincoln was perceived as the man who freed the slaves.

Only one problem.  The Republican mantra was that “with equal opportunity you have an equal chance” – IF, you are willing to work for it.

Most blacks welcomed this challenge.  Witness the hard work and perseverance of black people throughout the history of America.  The successful black Americans worked their asses off to get where they are today.

Yet, during all this time, the Democrats were seeing their party decline in black voter registration.

What to do?

Start to play the race card by saying, “The Republicans are demanding that you work hard – and you will be successful.

That is racist. You are entitled to a better life – because of your slave past.”

The Democrats went on to say, “Join the Democratic party and we will take care of you.”

And therein lies the crux of the problem – and something that the majority of black Americans still don’t seem to grasp.

The Democrats fail to point out that in most cities, controlled by Democrats, crime rates are higher than those controlled by Republicans – and Americans of African ancestry are still living in abject poverty to boot.

Just take a look at Chicago, Los Angeles, Oakland, New York – and Detroit.

Black Americans have been suckered into thinking that the Democrats will be kind, gentle and understanding to their “cause.”

Nothing could be more corrupt to this line of thinking.

In an article in the Investors Business Daily, Friday, May 25, 2012, page A 16, Walter Williams states that, “Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered.  Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person.”

He goes on to say that, “According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims.  Using the 94% figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks.”

Blacks are killing blacks on a MASSIVE scale.

So why the hell is the main stream media NOT reporting this AMERICAN KILLING FIELDS?

Simply because it does not put Democrats in a good light.  Once blacks really get a hold of how they have been lied to, and misled by the Liberal Democratic Party, they are going to be thoroughly pissed off.

And rightly so.

I was watching a documentary on the History Channel the other night – hosted by a British commentator – as to how North America (the USA) and South America developed in completely opposite directions.

He related it to the fact that, in America, LAND – and the relative distribution thereof – was the big difference.

In the United States, land – and its possession by individuals – was the main reason for America’s prominence.

Americans worked their OWN land – and prospered – into the richest nation in the history of the world.

On the contrary, South America was ruled – and is still governed in much the same way – by “landed” families or socialist/communist big government entities, rather than by the concept of individual liberty vested through the ownership of PRIVATE PROPERTY.

In so doing, Mexico, Central and South America are still ravaged by immense poverty.

In the television presentation – the story touched upon the “original sin” of America – that being slavery.

During a segment of the dialogue, the scenes of slavery accommodations  – row upon row of red brick houses – were shown on Southern plantations.

The suddenness of reality almost knocked me off of my chair.  There is a similar place in downtown Sacramento – right next to the cemetery – where row upon row of red brick community housing is located – and the majority of tenants are Americans of African ancestry.

These housing “projects” have been there for decades – and populated by SUCCEEDING GENERATIONS of Americans of African ancestry.

They are still living in the same type of housing that they were during the slave days.  And this city is the CAPITAL of California.

In essence, black people are still slaves of the Democratic party.


Because they have been literally dumbed down by our public school system.  In every instance, black youth have the worst scores – in all testing categories.  This is Public Education – DOMINATED by liberal unions.

These are not my own opinions, folks.  These are simple facts.

And now we have up to 50% of young black men unemployed in America.

And we wonder why so many Americans of African ancestry are incarcerated in our prison system?

The conservative thought is to work for yourself, get a better job, THINK for yourself – and get out of perpetual poverty that so many people are in.  And this does not mean just black Americans.

It applies to ALL Americans in similar economic straits.

Believe it or not, the largest number of poor people in America are WHITE.

But we don’t want to talk about that, do we?

Conservatives want black Americans to help THEMSELVES.  If they get good jobs, their crime rates would go down, their prison population would go down – and the overall cost would be greatly reduced.

It stands to reason that if black Americans were better able to take care of themselves they would have less one-parent families and fewer on welfare.

Black Americans would become more prosperous, able to move up the “social ladder” and become self-sufficient.

On the contrary, Liberals want to “take care of” black Americans.

That is the situation in a nutshell.

But then what would happen to our WELFARE STATE if that were allowed to happen?

I would be very interested to see statistics relating to the following two questions:

What is the percentage of Democrats versus Republicans who work for city, state and federal agencies?

What is the percentage of Democrats versus Republicans who are teachers, firemen, police officers and WELFARE workers?

But we will never find out these questions – because it would rip the heart out of the WELFARE STATE.

And that welfare state is totally in the hands of Liberal Democrats – and they will fight to the death to protect their POLITICAL POWER BASE.  Not to mention their LIVELIHOOD.

And THAT, my friends, is where the real battle lies.

A side note in passing.

Has it ever occurred to anybody why President Obama keeps reiterating how he was GIVEN the opportunity to get a good education – BY THE GOVERNMENT.

Notice one gigantic flaw in his assertion.  It was GIVEN to him.  He did not work for it.  He never has – and he never will.

It is one of the most subtle messages that he keeps on pounding home – and nobody has the courage to challenge him on this one, most basic point, of American Individualism.

Hard work is what produced this great nation of ours.  And even harder work is now required to keep America FREE.


This time of year is always a bittersweet one for me – and all other American Veterans.  We are eternally indebted to those who died in defense of this great nation – a debt that can in no way ever be repaid.

Those of us who lost friends in war take this time of the year a little more seriously than most.  So it is, with great pride, that I introduce you to Army Pfc. Sadao Munemori – recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor during World War II.

He was a member of the Army’s 100th Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team.

Pfc. Munemori died in battle on April 5, 1945, sacrificing his life for that of his fellow soldiers.  He was 22 years old.

The 442nd is the most highly decorated regiment in American Military History.  It was a totally Japanese-American unit.

I invite you all to look up his name on the Internet – and learn something about individual courage and love of country.

Bear in mind, his family was interned at Manzanar while he fought for America.  His mother received news of her son’s death while still in that Japanese concentration camp.

There are those who choose to leave the plantation – all it takes is self-determination, the will to succeed – and courage.

I salute all Veterans.  God bless you all.

Until next time – keep thinking positive.

And never give up!

    All of you…please watch this if you have not already!

    Some really great info that not even I knew (like I am some know-it-all)

  • Brian Says:

    As you pontificate about the problem and try to make something of it that may or may not be there, Bill Cosby, Colin Powell and others of the same race are not being quiet about their dislike for their fellow “race mates” and their under-performing ways. There are many in the black community who are beginning to realize that the problem is theirs to solve and not Al or Jessie or any of those white bigots.

  • John Says:

    To Mr. Klepinger: Valid points again. However, the point within your commentary is: ARE THE PEOPLE REALLY AWARE? Who the hell cares is the real point, until it affects them. I have a long story about mortgage but it would take about 50 pages to tell here. Part of it is with Bank of America. Everyone we talk to says dump them as fast as you can. But that’s not easy in today’s market of mortgages. It is a sad time!!

    To Barry STieb II comments read this web site: This is about a fraud judgement against the person in this video. Also, he rambles on & on & on without getting to his real point of posting such a statments. I went to sleep listening to this and just left the web site. Most times when I have seen this type of conversation, long and boring after awhile, it ends with a request to buy something.

    Happy Veteriams Day to all and Mr. Klepinger!!! 🙂

    Thanks for once again putting together a well written and thoughtful dissertation. I think this is one of your best. I’m trying to get others to take the time to read through it because they might just learn something. I hope you have a relaxing and meaningful Memorial Day with your family and loved ones.

    In honor of Memorial Day, the story of “Taps” here:

    I was watching the Dodgers game this evening, and Vin Scully treated us to his recitation of this poem as his Memorial Day message.

    Hi Larry;

    This was a great issue of The American Telegraph. I completely agree with everything you said. The impact of misguided democratic policies on African American society have been truly appalling. Your issue did a gret job of introducing some of the major root causes of problems in the African American community today. There are others, and the problems themselves are so deep and multifaceted that they go well beyond the scope of a single article. However, this issue of The American Telegraph has, among other merits, great heuristic value. It raises very important questions that people should be thinking about. Tragically, however, these problems have been swept under the rug for way too long. We need more provocative headlines like your’s to wake people up!!


  • Kevin Jackson Says:

    The girl was who cried rape was white, if this is the case that I saw on 60 Minutes a few years back, and I believe it is. I think white people need to wake up, and STOP ENABLING ignorance and victimhood. Black people will get it, when the money stops.

  • Jeff Potter Says:

    We need to show more sympathy for these people.

    They travel miles in the heat.

    They risk their lives crossing a border.

    They don’t get paid enough wages.

    They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.

    They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.

    They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day.

    I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans

    I’m talking about our troops!

    Doesn’t it seem strange that so many are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don’t support our troops?

    Wouldn’t it be great if we took the $360,000,000,000 (that’s billion) we spend on
    illegals every year, and spend it on our troops!!!
