ANALYSIS/OPINION

I’m amazed at how openly racist black liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it.

As I was waiting to appear on CNN recently, I listened to an interview of a Missouri legislator, who said said to Don Lemon, “The way for Ferguson Missouri to improve public relations is to have more black cops.”

Can you imagine the reaction if a city asked for more white cops?

This call for “blackness” as an answer to what’s plaguing the black community is happening a lot, and quite frankly is disturbing.



Pretty soon when we go to a store, black people will only be able to be helped by black people. Imagine a warped world where only somebody of your same color could help you!

“Colorization” seems to be the answer to all things for liberals, and is most important to black liberals. Blacker is supposed to be better. It never is!

For the life of me, I don’t understand why on Gore’s green earth black people would want more black people controlling their lives. 

Cities are replete with black folks in charge of other black folks: black aldermen, black city councilmen, majority-black school boards (maybe one token white), black mayors and the real shot-callers known as the Congressional Black Caucus. 

Add to this a black president and a black attorney general, and you have a cornucopia of black power, all of which has led to devastation in the black community. And how is the life of Michael Brown celebrated in the black community? Looting.

You’d think by now black liberals would have had enough of black leadership. President Obama has run the nation into the ground; and as I wrote a while back, if you want a recipe for failure in a municipality, elect a black liberal.

When will black people select who is best for the job, regardless of color?

I have a friend who has been to prison twice. He left high school in the 11th grade unable to read. He started committing armed robberies shortly thereafter, and was sent to prison the first time.

Upon his first release, the inmates bet on when he would be back. One “OG” in the prison predicted my friend would return in less than six months. “You ain’t learned nothin’ in prison,” he told my friend. “You still a thug.”

My friend returned to prison almost six months to the day later, again for armed robbery.

While in prison the second time, my friend learned to read. He was taught to read by an old white lady, and she taught him to read from the Bible.

He explained to me that this woman was his first real interaction with a white person, as he had robbed all the others. He described the care she took to make sure that he learned how to read properly.

He said that learning to read from the Bible taught him lessons beyond putting words together, lessons he would apply the next time he was released.

He’s out of prison and a solid citizen, because of an old white woman.

My friend says this old white lady made the most impact in his life to date. Up to the point of meeting this old lady, my friend thought of white people as evil. He learned upon reflection that many of his black “friends” were not friends at all. They were enablers of his self-destruction and catalysts to his destruction.

This idea that having more black people is the answer is the most racist mentality one could have. That said; I understand it. 

What black liberals are saying inadvertently is white liberalism isn’t working. White liberals do NOT help the black community, because they won’t tell black people the truth. As Thomas Sowell has said about truth: “When you want to help people, you tell the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell people what they want to hear.”

America will change when Americans have the guts to tell black people the truth.
