The turmoil over the chimp cartoon in the New York Post has breathed new life into the issue of race in America, provoking the familiar outcry by black pundits, civil rights activists and journalists.
The issue of race has been brought to front and center with the cartoon coming on the heels of Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department speech accusing Americans of being cowards for not talking honestly about race.
The moral capital that will be expended, the money invested in these protests, and the publicity generated should instead go to address a more crucial unacknowledged crisis festering in the soul of Black America - the plight of child prostitutes in the nation's major cities. Over the last two years, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin has labored nearly alone to rid her city of this menace in a campaign to rescue black children. In a PBS special broadcast, Mayor Franklin said, "The child prostitutes are 10 and 11 years old, and the age is getting lower."

Mr. Woodson’s points are salient; and therefore, will be ignored by the host of hustlers from the array of Chaos.
The race hustling industry doesn’t want to go away.
From my experience the only “dialogue” blacks wants is them talking about how they’ve been discriminated against and how we (whites) are still doing it. And they want us to nod in agreement.
Not me. I’m guilt free.
We should all be nt only guilt free but fed up. Think about the percentage of your tax dollars that have been allocated for entitlements and social engineering over the years!
