In this week’s episode of “White People Say Some Of The Dumbest Sh*t,” gun lobbyist, Larry Pratt recommended that black people in the U.S. should learn to improve their attitudes by paying attention to “Africans from Africa” who he said were more “happy”.
The interview took place on the Gun Owner’s News Hour show during a conversation that included mentioning the best Catholic priests were from Africa. American Thinker writer Selwyn Duke told Pratt, that Africa is filled with intelligent men with PhDs.
“And generally the African from Africa is a very pro-American person, a very happy person,” Pratt stated. “I know several. And they always just happy with a joke, pleasant smile on their face. And they clearly don’t identify with the surliness that’s all too frequently the attitude of their fellow African-Americans here.”
“And they’re very conservative politically,” he continued. “The country of Ghana, it’s still illegal to commit an abortion, it’s illegal to be a homosexual. Very conservative social laws and very free market oriented as well.”
Duke agreed and pointed out that the types of Africans that could afford to come to the U.S. were of “a better stripe.”
“They tend to be educated, they tend to be a little more upper class than a lot of the Africans who can’t get here,” Duke said.
“It’s the way we used to run our immigration system altogether,” Pratt replied. “These are folks that stand apart and hopefully they can approach some of their fellow blacks and say, ‘Hey, buddy, you got this all wrong, let me explain to you the world really works.’”
So apparently these two white men assume every African is walking around singing Pharrell’s “Happy” 24-7. On next week’s episode, they’ll talk about how happy the slaves were when they were picking cotton, until those damn Northerners came and interrupted their annual Negro Spiritual retreat with talks of freedom.
