- You Call This A Role Model?!
What an awful thing it must be to be a rational law abiding black man or woman living in America. As a white person I can only imagine what it would be like if the only people that looked like me who could ever get any attention from the press were David Duke, Mel Gibson, the Arian Nation and the Klan. How disgusted I would be. I can't imagine trying to raise my children to take responsibly for themselves when the only role models they have on the news are liars, scam artists, and self aggrandizing buffoons who blame everyone else for all the problems in their lives.
Surely it's that way for 'rational' black America, watching those shameless and disgusting pigs like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on TV. Surely there are many black people in America who look at that thug from the New Black Panther party with the same disgust and revulsion that I do. But if you're black, thanks to the editorial opinions of the major media, that's all you ever see. The networks don't believe that a black man or woman can be responsible for themselves, so they give the megaphone to people like Louis Farrakhan who present themselves as "victims" of white America. They won't bring on a Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell to discuss race issues. All they do is dredge up refuse like Sharpton. How terrible that must be.
What's even worse is that we have a black President, a black Supreme Court Justice, a black attorney general, a number of black cabinet heads, and many prominent black politicians and businessmen in every area of society, and the major media (and all other liberals) still feel compelled to treat black people as if they're second class citizens. They won't challenge black Americans to take control of their own lives. All they'll do is help the racial grievance mongers try to find someone else to pin it all on. they still troll the streets looking for that increasingly rare proof of the ultimate liberal sin... racism. And wherever you find a liberal in American society you also find a standard and expectation that's been set markedly lower if you're black - even in the face of so many black success stories. How horribly insulting.
Frankly I think it's time for black America to say "enough" already. I think it's time for them to tell Sharpton and Farrakhan and all the other human garbage that they aren't interested anymore. I think it's time for them to come out and reject the view that black people need to be handled like America's retarded step children. I think it's time for them to take a chair at the grown-ups table, and quit acting they have some inherent disadvantage. It's time for each of them to decide for themselves that they will quit blaming other people for their problems and start taking personal responsibly for the outcomes in their lives. Other groups of American have done it. I see no reason why black people can't as well.
If they do that, then the media will have no choice but to finally begin treating them like grown ups. They'll have no choice but to give them the respect they will be due.
