Booker T. Washington, wrote: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
How I wish his wisdom and the wisdom of Doctor Ben Carson would be studied and adopted by the racist bigots who are now influencing the black culture in America today. Maybe if it was accepted, they would be calling for their Attorney General to do something about the murder of innocents in Chicago and DC which are legitimate concerns. They would encourage black men to accept the responsibility for the children they father instead of walking away and leaving the women to decide either to abort or keep the baby and have to go on government welfare to support them. Maybe they would hold the teachers accountable to teach children relevant subjects to help them be successful in the future, and they would encourage those same educators to work with the parent or parents to keep their child in school until he/she graduates with a meaningful and relevant education.

Can you imagine how successful the child would be if he/she had Booker T. Washington or Allen West or Dr Ben Carson as a role model. These men of value would be legitimate champions who would fight for the legitimate needs of the people they represent, not line their own pockets with your money. Who is paying these Charlatans Sharpton and Jackson to go from city to city drumming up protests? Who is organizing this “spontaneous” movement, the same people who want to keep the issue active for as long as possible to garner the most support and money for themselves. Believe it or not Government agencies are funding Sharpton and Jackson as they travel across the country. They are given legitimate status by the Obama administration. Now they can use the internet to garner as much money as they can persuade you to part with. If you haven’ t learned your lesson by now, you need to realize that you are cheating your child out of a legitimate opportunity at real success. If Dr Ben Carson can do what he did any person who sets their mind to it can do it too. You have to turn your back on the bad and bathe in the good. Don’t listen to any song that glorifies criminals or crime. Only listen to people and songs that make you feel proud of having the values and traditions that America is built upon.
Ask yourself, why is the liberal media only reporting what certain groups are telling them to say or print? Why is the liberal media ignoring all the other stories that might embarrass the Obama administration? Why didn’t reporters descend on the city of Chicago with these same activists over the past 5 months when young boys and girls were and are being slaughtered in the streets. Chicago is the Murder Capital of America, not Sanford. Where were the outraged Congressmen and women when black boys and girls were being killed at the rate of 40 or 50 a weekend. Why wasn’t that considered a national emergency, it should have been. Why isn’t it now. They have the stage why aren’t they using it to spur their Attorney General to action to stop the slaughter.
Speaking of keeping the media silent, I haven’t heard hide nor hair about Mayor Emanuel and what he is doing to combat the elements that make up the violence and disrespect in Chicago. You would think the former White House Chief of Staff would garner more news coverage than that. What is Rahm telling the Chicago Teachers Union about their status. Are the children in Chicago going to get a meaningful and relevant education or are they going to have to look elsewhere to find it.
Maybe the Hip Hop industry which flourishes in the Windy City can be persuaded to take on responsibility for the obscene lyrics they put in their songs. When was the last time you heard any hip hop lyrics that encouraged young children to respect their parents or authority or question what the teacher is trying to make them do, or maybe stand up for themselves and work hard. I haven’t heard any.

Which city has the next highest murder rate? No, it can’t be, but yes, it is Washington DC, Obama’s adopted home town. And guess what, both cities have one of the strictest gun control laws in the country that only apply to law abiding citizens ability to defend themselves against drug gangs and violent actions by disaffected teenagers. Where is the outrage? Have you seen one expose’ written by one investigative reporter, I haven’t. If they did they would be guaranteed a Pulitzer in another world. In this world, If a reporter dared to expose the liberal hypocrisy for what it is, they would be fired forthwith. So they stay behind their desks and invent exponential phrases and edit news footage to satisfy their liberal minded bosses.
What this country needs is a Conservative upheaval to uproot the liberal establishment and open up the eyes of the American public to the propaganda that is being thrust upon them. We need a totally honest and independent media outlet to report the news in a fair and balanced way. Funny, that sounds like the Fox News statement. If anyone can find a way to bring the truth to the people it is Roger Ayles. I wait with baited breath for it to happen.
