WRONG, THERE ARE 6-- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.


The reasoning behind is further down.












The brain cannot process "OF".
Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
Three is normal, four is quite rare.

How Many Slaves do You Own???

For those of you unfamiliar with Fred Reed, he's a police reporter for one
of the large Washington newspapers. Anyway, Fred publishes (published) a
weekly online column in which he got to say the things his editors would
never, ever have let him write in the paper. His stuff is iconoclastic
and various articles have probably offended everyone regardless of
political orientation. So, with the warning that "This is definitely not
politically correct", here comes Fred.

The following is an essay regarding the failings of a system and a
culture. To some, he may elegantly describe the mood of many Americans
and he may do so without prejudice if you look at the article in its
entirety.





Slavery Reparations .......by Fred Reed

On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-
American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to
blacks. It's because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavor by a
gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he'll send me a bill, huh?

I feel like saying, "Let me get this straight, Hank. I'm slow. Be
patient. You want free money because of slavery, right? I don't blame
you." I'd like free money too. Tell you what. I believe in
justice. I'll give you a million dollars for every slave I own and
another million for every year you were a slave. Fair enough? But tell
me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers, I mean ...
Say to the nearest dozen. And how long were you a slave?

Oh. In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn't do
and didn't happen to you. That makes sense. Like lug nuts on a birthday
cake.

Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn't do and
never happened to me. I've never been coated in Dutch chocolate and thrown
from the Eiffel Tower. I'll bet you've never done it to anyone. I want
reparations. Kinda silly, isn't it?

But, if we're going to talk about reparations, that's a street that runs
in two directions. You want money from me for what some other whites did
to some other blacks in another century. How about you guys paying whites
reparations for current expenses caused by blacks? Not long ago blacks
burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my country. Cities are
expensive,Hank. Build one sometime and you'll see what I mean. Whites
had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for you. You can send me a check.

Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn't like the verdict in the
trial of those police officers. Well, I didn't like the verdict in the
Simpson trial. But, I didn't burn my house and loot Korean grocers. Over
the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark, Detroit,
Watts, on and on. Now, add in the fantastic cost over the years of
welfare in all its forms, of large police forces, and jails and security systems in department stores.

I can't live in the capital city of my own country because of crime
committed by some blacks.

Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the
benefit of blacks. See what I mean?

Now, I'd view things differently if you said, "Fred, blacks can't get
anywhere in a modern country without education. We know that. We need
better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, and books with smaller
pictures and bigger words. Can you help us?" I'd say, "Hallelujah!
Hoo-ahh! Not just yes, but hell yes. Let's sell an aircraft carrier and
get these folks some real schools and get them into the economic mainstream." I'd
say it partly because it would be the right thing to do and, partly, because I'd like to add you
guys to the tax base.

The current custodial state is expensive. I'd just love for blacks to
study and learn to compete and stop burning places. But, is it going to happen? You may not
believe it, but I, and most whites, don't like seeing blacks as miserable
and screwed up as they are. I spend a fair amount of time in the
projects. Those places are ugly. It's no fun watching perfectly good
kids turn into semiliterate dope dealers, who barely speak English. It
just plain ain't right. But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? I
can't do your children's homework. At some point, people have to do
things for themselves or they don't get done.

Maybe it's time.

I'll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank. I think blacks are too
accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it. True, it
has worked for over half a century. Get a few hundred people in the
street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and
the Great White Cash Spigot turns on. Thing is, whites don't much buy it
any longer. Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has
become a shakedown game. Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of
blacks. Political correctness keeps the lid on -- but everyone knows the score, which scares me, Hank.

On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and
burning. (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the
civil-rights movement. Ever think about that?) On the other hand, whites
quietly grow wearier and wearier of it. Not good.

On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience),
blacks keep demanding things. As I write, you demand reparations for slavery. Blacks in
Oklahoma (I think it was) want money for some ancient race riot. Other
blacks reject the Declaration of Independence, blacks in New York hint
broadly at burning and looting over a trial, and yet more demand the
elimination of the Confederate flag and the federal equal opportunity
apparatus, which means blacks, wants to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring
nonexistent black engineers. That's a lot of demanding for one month,
Hank. What happens if whites ever say, "No"?

Now, how about you? You've got a cushy job up there at Harvard and you
can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are. I guess it's
lots of fun and you get a salary for it. But, don't you think you might
do blacks more good if you told them to complain less and study more?

For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best
approach might be to find some really smart black guys and get them to
study digital design, not Black Studies. That's how everybody else does
it. It works. Then, blacks wouldn't feel left out and racial tension
would decline.

Sound like a plan?

Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of
Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black kids
to study real life sho-nuf subjects?

Fred

I got 3, so you must be on to something...

Seriously, I bet it does have something to do with how fast you can read. I was able to read that other paragraph as fast as I could any other paragraph. I think it has to do with the way people's brains process text differently.
