House to Assess State of the Black Union
rollcall.com ^ | July 23, 2013 | Warren Rojas

Posted on 07/23/2013 7:17:20 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Tracy Martin, father of Trayvon Martin, the African-American teen slain in Sanford, Fla., by acquitted gunman George Zimmerman, will address members of Congress on Wednesday, sharing his thoughts on the black experience in the United States at the inaugural meeting of the Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys.

The group discussion on “The Status of Black Males: Ensuring Our Boys Mature Into Strong Men” is scheduled to take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 2737 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Ex-Rep. Kweisi Mfume, D-Md., Georgetown University sociology professor Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and Obama administration aide David J. Johns are also expected to weigh in on the challenges facing today’s young black males.

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., couldn’t get away from the topic even at Comic-Con, alerting those assembled to hear him speak about “March,” the graphic novel detailing his own rites of passage in the segregationist South, that post-racial America is still a ways off.

“People said the election of Barack Obama is the fulfillment of [Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s] dream. And I said, ‘no.’ It’s just a down payment,” Lewis told HOH about the polarizing outcome of the Zimmerman case.

If anything, Lewis urged tomorrow’s leaders to remain ever vigilant.

“These [young] people, they’ve never seen signs saying ‘whites only’ and ‘colored only.’ But we have invisible signs today,” he said. “And the Supreme Court [Voting Rights Act] decision and what happened in Florida with this young man says that the struggle is ongoing.”

“These [young] people, they’ve never seen signs saying ‘whites only’ and ‘colored only.’ “

Right, because we got rid of them a long time ago.

“But we have invisible signs today,”

Only in your mind you racist pig.

Here's a few suggestions:
- stop fathering children out of wedlock;
- get married FIRST, then have children;
- STAY married to your children's mother; (emphasis SINGULAR)
- be a FULL TIME DAD, not some part-time deadbeat who misses child support payments and only lets your son stay with you on weekends or when his MOTHER KICKS HIM OUT.

Oh, I'm sorry -- that must all be RACIST isn't it?

This will be good....They will dance all around the obvious truth and never dare to touch it. The truth is too painful and can never be uttered publicly for others to repeat.

So the keynote speaker is a gang banger who rarely saw his son, fathered 2 other kids w/different women, and called the jail first when he realized his son was missing the next day. They’re not serious about this and never will be.

When do we have Congressional Hearings on the status of White, Christian, Heterosexual males from Father-and-Mother-in-the-home families?

Oh; that's not important at all, and would detract from the Black Experience Project now being conducted 24/7 for the Parasitic Black Voterbase.

You hate to get personal, but, Trayvon’s grieving parents haven’t been raising him all these years. Other assorted relatives have stepped in, as they were unable or unwilling to do the job. They are not a couple anymore either.

And, it’s said that Trayvon’s dad is a gang member.

All in all, it’s clear that Trayvon was going down the wrong road. The jury concluded he threw the first punch. Perhaps because he wanted to show Zimmerman he was tough. Probably a ghetto thing. That Rachel girl said that Trayvon was giving him a whoop ass, which I assume also is some ghetto terminology meaning beating somebody up.

How do I know that not one of these suggestions will be mentioned by any of the "experts" called to this tax-funded gathering, starting with Trayvon's dad?

Let’s see if we can set race relations back the full Monty, instead of 60 years, let’s go the full boat, 150 years.

Let’s see if we can dial up the victimology routine another notch or two. Probably we can shuffle some taxpayer monies and get some of our consulting buddies to conduct studies costing millions of dollars to show what any rational person could observe if it isn’t obvious on its face. And then we can create programs and agencies to employ our buddies in cushy do-nothing no-responsibility government jobs to hand out grants and, while we’re at it, get every crack ho a $5 dollar bill so she’ll vote for us next time. Maybe we can establish a cabinet-level position with several hundred people on staff with a hundred million or so budget, to set goals, develop guidelines, create milestones, seek waypoints, modify diversity attainment levels, and in general, modify society according to how we all know it should be done.

so, are we starting the national dialogue on race??? are we allowed to say that 70%+ of black babies are born out of wedlock? Are we allowed to say that disproportionate numbers of black young men get involved in crime? Can we talk about other such inconvenient truths, or is it going to be a politically correct event????

They’re not interested in solving the problems of young black men. They’re just interested in blaming white people for them.

These people will forever see a racist conspiracy around every corner. It allows them to never look in the mirror.

When progress is made, they move the goalposts.

Booker T. had it right.

Rapper Jay-Z has become embroiled in a nasty dispute in Great Britain involving allegations that security guards were selectively excluding people at his Brit Awards after-party based on their race.

The guards allegedly refused to admit white party-goers into the VIP area, while black attendees were admitted immediately without standing in line.

In a letter sent to Gov. Deval Patrick over Memorial Day weekend, the group Friends of Roxbury Community College said it is “insulting for Governor Patrick to appoint a white person to head up the body that is the primary decision maker for the college

But Kambon said the governor’s decision to appoint Chertavian chairman was the wrong move and that Roxbury residents need to see a person who “looks like us” in that leadership position.

The congressional black circus is getting lectures on invisible signs of racism from a racist professor and a lecture on parenting from a gang banging absentee father. One thing they don't need to be lectured about is making complete assess of themselves. They would rather lie to themselves and their constituents then face reality.
