Well, as predicted by pretty much everyone, Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for the Michael Brown killing. What does this mean? For starters, Sunny Hostin and Donna Brazile should be out of the “prediction media.”
Those two are both intelligent, accomplished women of color, but they’re zealous ideologues—the ridiculous narrative they fell for, kinda fucking fell through. It’s obvious to everyone but them; Hands Up, Don’t Shoot, makes for a nice protest sign and decent bumper-sticker. It does little to sway the influence of actual forensic evidence.
I feel bad for the Brown family. They lost their son. They asked for a nonviolent response no matter the outcome. For my white ass, Beirut is preferable to Ferguson at the moment. As unfair as it may be, every burned down business in America is going to be partly linked to their dead kid.
Here’s the gist, dudes and dudettes: Black conservatives constantly strive to bring folks of all color together. It’s a tough job, especially considering the fact that Black and White liberals spend time, effort, energy, money, and T.V. programming promoting a racially divisive political agenda. MSNBC relishes the divide: It’s the only reason they’re in the business.
Where are the Old Timers in the Black community? Where’s Willie Mays? Hank Aaron? Where are the Men and the leaders of these communities? Where’s an old Black wise man to say to the rioters in Ferguson and elsewhere—Do you have no shame? Did Mama not raise you right?
That sounds “judgmental” and we know that’s not allowed in PC 2014, America. President Obama and/or AG Holder could have taken an early stand and could have interjected themselves as America’s “Father Figures.” They didn’t. Thus, the children (young and overgrown) of Ferguson burn down their own city.
Valueless and Hopeless; this is the face of Blacks in Obama’s America?
