Al Sharpton embodies the moral deception that is continuing to destroy black people in the inner cities. He keeps saying that white racism is the biggest threat to young black men. But here are the facts:
Blacks make up 13% of the population but blacks commit more than 50% of the murders. However, here is the real devastating fact: and 93% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.
Trayvon Martin’s death is a tragedy but how can Sharpton ignore the hundreds of blacks who are murdered by other blacks every year?
The answer is in a quote from Jason Riley: “The civil-rights leadership rallied to Trayvon’s cause (and not to the cause of those hundreds of black kids slain in America’s inner cities this very year) to keep alive a certain cultural “truth” that is the sole source of the leadership’s dwindling power. Put bluntly, this leadership rather easily tolerates black kids killing other black kids. But it cannot abide a white person (and Mr. Zimmerman, with his Hispanic background, was pushed into a white identity by the media over his objections) getting away with killing a black person without undermining the leadership’s very reason for being.”
The purpose of today’s civil-rights establishment is not to seek justice, but to seek power for blacks in American life based on the presumption that they are still, in a thousand subtle ways, victimized by white racism.
100 marches yesterday against white racism when white racism is so far down on the list of what threatens black young men? Protesting white racism while race hucksters and limousine liberals turn a blind eye to what is really destroying the black community?
Why isn’t Sharpton screaming at black young men to stop murdering each other?
President Obama should be utterly ashamed of himself for even hinting to agree with Sharpton. He is the president of the United States but he is from Chicago where this very lie provides cover for the murder epidemic that killed 500 people in the last 12 months.
Racial hucksters and limousine liberals have helped destroy the family in the inner city. They do not want to talk about personal responsibility. They keep blaming poverty after we have spent billions and only end up with a Detroit that was drowning in corruption.
They blame education when it was taboo to impose discipline and stand up to selfish unions.
They said it was gun laws when they know that a thousand more laws would not stop violence because existing laws are not enforced.
There is no speech devoted to telling young black women not to get pregnant. There is scant mention of drug dealers or the thug culture by these race baiters.
The black community suffers because the black family has largely been destroyed. 73% of black babies are born out of wedlock. Young black men are raised without fathers. Young black men grow up resentful and unsupervised. There is the issue that deserves protests, marches and accountability.
If Al Sharpton and the others like him wanted black America to have a future wouldn’t he be attacking the root causes no matter who it offended?
If there is a solution it must spring forth from the millions of blacks who understand what is destroying them and will dethrone the old order that keeps them in a new brand of slavery.
I know that there are great men of God out there in the black community. It will take courage for them to stand and tell the truth. The first thing they need to say is “stop listening to Al Sharpton!”
