Skip to comments.Black America’s True Nemesis: Liberals, Not Zimmerman
Posted on 07/27/2013 4:54:30 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus
In the midst of all the racial hullabaloo stirred up by so-called advocates for black empowerment after the Zimmerman trail, guess who is really being harmed? Answer: black America.
All of you black pastors, black politicians, and black celebs who have joined Sharpton and the MSM's lynch mob to "get Zimmerman" should be ashamed of yourselves. You are doing a huge disservice to the very people you claim to champion by chasing a straw man while ignoring the real issues that are devastating black America.
Everyone knows that the black community is a mess. White folks ain't killin' us. We are killing each other. Over 70 and increasing percent of black kids grow up in fatherless homes. Researchers warn that we blacks are aborting ourselves into extinction. Black school dropout rates are at epidemic levels. Fatherless households and school dropouts fuel through the roof high black unemployment, gangs, and incarcerations.
And yet, all of you so-called defenders of black America are hell-bent on destroying the life of one Hispanic for defending himself. Displaying remarkable evil intent, the MSM launched a false narrative filled with lies about the incident, not giving a darn about the consequences, like loss of property and lives.
To strengthen their "America is racist" storyline the MSM creatively called Zimmerman a "white Hispanic." The MSM edited Zimmerman's 911 call to make him sound racist. To gin up black rage, the MSM promoted a photo of Martin as an innocent 12-year-old rather than the 17-year-old 6'2"-160-lb. thug he was at the time of the incident. Yes, Martin's history documents that he was a thug.
By the way, black activists saying that the jury declaring Zimmerman not guilty means that it is open season on young black men is pure evil race-baiting crap. Statistically, blacks are 50 times more likely to assault whites than vice-versa.
You black avengers should be totally outraged that CNN's white liberal host Piers Morgan presented Rachel Jeantel's ignorant ghetto language as representative of how we speak in the black community. Morgan called Jeantel "one smart cookie," and you knuckleheads probably consider Morgan and his condescending fellow white liberals our friends.
Please forgive my use of "knuckleheads." I just find it extremely frustrating that liberals continue to urinate on blacks and tell us it is the Republicans' fault...and we fall for it. Liberal pandering has destroyed the black family and continues to wreak havoc in the black community -- and my fellow blacks cannot see it. They continue to kiss white liberals' derrieres. Yes, I am frustrated.
In the eyes of a relative of mine, her son could do no wrong. She created a spoiled brat who grew up to be a jerk -- no self-discipline or respect for authority. His personal relationships were disasters. He could not keep a job. He died young. While I believe that everyone is ultimately responsible for his own behavior, this boy's mom's lack of parenting contributed to his demise.
Folks, this is exactly what liberal black leaders and liberal whites having been doing to blacks: refusing to hold us accountable for destructive behavior and making excuses for us.
Real compassion is honestly dealing with the issues plaguing the black community rather than so-called advocates (Democrats and the MSM) using our dysfunction for their political and financial gain.
All of you black celebs and black politicians demanding Zimmerman's head on a platter make mega-millions of dollars a year. With blacks being only 12% of the population, you would not be who you are without white support. Thus, your accusation that America is hostile towards black males is absurd, racist, and worst of all, discouraging to young blacks.
America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it. Period! End of subject!
Black advocates indulging blacks in irresponsible self-destructive behavior serve only to undermine black progress, creating spoiled, entitlement-minded, undisciplined, hopeless, and angry black youths. Do you guys not see the disservice you are doing to your own people? It is the same as bad parenting.
But here is what is truly sad and frustrating: every word in this article is true, and yet, liberals, black and white, will read it and seek to silence, punish, and destroy me. They'll call me a traitorous sellout, an Uncle Tom, and a self-loathing stupid N-word.
Meanwhile, liberals' exploitation will further the decline and suffering of black America. Race-hustling ambulance-chasers like Sharpton will continue seeking opportunities to extort a buck and increase their political power. Liberals will continue treating us blacks like inferior idiots, demanding lowered standards and expectations. Lord, help us.
Black males will continue killing each other over the slightest dis. That 70% rate of black out-of-wed births and fatherless homes will continue rising, along with school dropouts, abortions, unemployment, and incarcerations. And blacks will continue rewarding liberal Democrats with almost 100% of their vote.
In keeping with liberals' lowering the bar for blacks, Rachel Jeantel will probably get her own reality TV show. Millions of black youths will be able to learn "new school," as Rachel described it, black language -- "creepy ass cracka" and "nigga." I wonder what her TV show will be titled. "Rachel Jeantel: She Be All Dat"?
Go ahead and accuse me of not being down with authentic blackness or of being a traitor to my race if you want to, but I will not be tuning into Rachel's show.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who inspired black excellence, must be turning over in his grave.

I'm not aware of any economists commenting about the extent to which those who are willing to spend money to punish bad behavior benefit others, or those who let bad behaviors slide harm others, but failure to address such issues will lead to societal decay. If someone who picks a company at random and tries to cheat them of some small amount is sufficiently likely to get away with it, and sufficiently unlikely to suffer any significant consequences, that unscrupulous people can expect to profit from such behavior, such behavior will become widespread and impose major costs on businesses that pay off the crooks as well as those who spend money going after them. If, however, such crooks can expect to be pursued with enough vigor to make their schemes unprofitable, then few crooks will actually engage in such behavior, the total cost to businesses will be relatively slight.
As a simple example, suppose a business is faced with a choice of paying royalties to use the song "Happy Birthday" or opposing such royalties in court. Because the melody for "Happy Birthday" dates back to the nineteenth century under the title "Good morning to all", and has a documented association with the title "Happy Birthday to You" before the earliest possible copyright cutoff, I would consider implausible the notion that the song represents an original work which was not publicly disseminated before the copyright cutoff (much less before the claimed copyright date of 1935). I would expect that if someone wanted to dispute the copyright claim in court, that party would ultimately emerge victorious. On the other hand, while there are many people and companies who could benefit by having courts recognize "Happy Birthday" as being in the public domain, there would be relatively little benefit to any particular one of them. Because the damage from the false copyright claim is so dilute, there's little incentive for anyone to fight the claim. It's easier to simply give the claimed copyright holders money to which they are not entitled. A company which refused to tender such money and fought the claim vigorously would save relatively little in royalty costs, compared to the legal costs necessary to achieve victory.
