This is like the old Ghostbusters theme song. When a racial riot breaks out, “who ya gonna call?” RACEBAITERS! Jackson and Sharpton of course. In fairness, I’m not sure anyone put out a call to either one of them, like the bat signal at the first sign of possible racial conflict. Both of these hustlers can smell a race conflict from all the way across the country like a bloodhound sniffs body odor. They probably have a google app which searches for this stuff.
Even the local Missouri blacks embroiled in the ‘demonstration’ are asking “who called y’all?” Jackson may have lost some style points when he passed around a collection plate after his speech; old habits and all that. The days when Jackson and Sharpton purport to speak on behalf of, or “lead” aggrieved blacks have long disappeared along with elaborate afros. In fact, the only contingent that perpetuates and legitimizes their existence is the media. It’s preposterous to report that the views of either one of these hustlers is representative of a nation of 40 million black people. It’s as if the opinions of Charlie Sheen were sought out after a controversial death of a white person.
It never even dawns upon the media that to accept and propagate the views of the irrelevant reverends is racist in itself. Why don’t they seek the opinions of Thomas Sowell or Ben Carson or Condaleeza Rice? While media loves to push the narrative of a divisive racial society, they in fact actively promote the assumption of single mindedness among blacks, treating them as if they were an homogenous segment and not individuals, the very definition of racism.
So in Missouri, we have a crime incident, sad of course, but essentially local, blown up into an international racial conflagration by the combination of a lazy and sensationalist media, noted hustlers and a naïve public. No less than Ban Ki-Moon, the secretary general of the U.N. has asked for the U.S. government to protect free demonstrations. The U.N.; can’t make that up. On the same day of this incident, there were 25 to 30 shootings, mainly of blacks, in Chicago. There’s even a website that maps the incidents;
That kind of stuff is old hat in Chicago and barely gets any righteous indignation any more. It certainly doesn’t sell papers. In Missouri, they’re supposed to be more skeptical of things and not be gullible to spurious news. You’d expect more from the ‘show me’ state.
