Luis Head was in a lot of emotional pain when he incited protesters to commit arson. The ultimate blame for his transgression belongs to a ravenous race-baiting machine that has been exacerbating racial tension for 30 years. Michael Brown’s grieving family has suffered enough and I blame the agitators who provoke racial hatred in order to enjoy the media spotlight.
After the greatest accomplishments in the history of the civil rights movement these agitators need racism to stay relevant. For 30 years Al Sharpton is still exploiting any opportunity to race-bait the country and sour race relations. He has taken a leading role representing the protesters and family of Michael Brown.
With a great deal of impudence Sharpton told the media that, “I've never seen a prosecutor hold a press conference to discredit the victim, where he went out of his way to go point by point in discrediting Michael Brown Jr., who could not defend himself.”
But hold on, Sharpton is an expert on the subject! In 1987 Harry Crist Jr committed suicide hours after his girlfriend broke up with him. He was also distraught because he had recently found out that his dream of becoming a fulltime police officer would never come true. Sharpton exploited Crist’s death and falsely accused him of raping Tawana Brawley, a black teenager. He knew that a dead person could never defend himself. When Prosecutor Steven Pagones provided an alibi for Crist, the Prosecutor was also accused of the rape!
Both of the accused were cleared of any wrong doing and Pagones successfully sued Al Sharpton for defamation. The court found that there was no evidence that Brawley was raped and she faked her own abuse. When Sharpton says that a dead man cannot defend himself he knows what he is talking about from his own personal initiative. The family of Crist never recovered from the additional pain that he caused them.
Al Sharpton has an activist organization named, “The National Action Network (NAN)”. Some press conferences on the subject of the Michael Brown shooting have been made under its banner. Unfortunately, the organization sometimes uses the slogan, “No Justice, No Peace”. Back in 1991 it was chanted during the infamous Crown Heights Riots when Sharpton led protesters in response to a car accident that killed a black boy. An innocent Jew from Australia was murdered during three days of violent rioting. This is “No Justice, No Peace” in action. It is a close relative of “An Eye for an Eye”.
Michael Brown’s father has repeatedly worn shirts with the same slogan during press conferences. It is a rare glimpse of honesty that sheds light on the deception of modern race-baiting. While activists may claim to have peaceful intentions, some only intend to be peaceful as long as their demands are met. The meaning of “No Justice, No Peace” is clear.
Martin Luther King Jr and Ghandi would disagree with the provocative use of that slogan.
There is a self-lynching going on in Ferguson, Missouri. It is African-Americans that are bearing the brunt of the violence. Many looters just use this cause to enrich themselves.
As Al Sharpton goes from town to town there is a storm cloud that follows him. From Tawana Brawley to the Crown Heights riots, to the massacre at Freddy’s Fashion Mart, to the Jena 6 beatdown, the Duke Lacrosse Lie and more… There is a bloody trail that lies in the wake of Sharpton’s dishonest “activism”. Many lives have been destroyed. How have black communities benefited from this?
To highlight the problem of violence in the African-American community right-wingers have taken to pointing out statistics of black on black crime, but let’s look at black vs white crime instead. These statistics were pulled from the FBI and Census websites…
Even though blacks comprise only 12.6% of our population they have still killed over 50% more whites than whites have killed blacks. This is a staggering number! If I use the simpleminded race-baiting model to interpret this inequality I would be just jumping to conclusions. It is hard to quantify what percent of these lopsided statistics are due to the racism of blacks against whites. What we can say is that there is an epidemic of criminal activity in our African American communities. This is indisputable.
As the riots in Ferguson shows; the biggest victims of race-baiting are not the white targets, but the black community. Black youths are constantly told that they are kept poor by white oppression. They are instructed to believe that their color is the reason for all of their problems. So race-baiting con-artists paint a picture in which blacks have no control over their own lives. It is no wonder there is so much anger. This feeling of hopelessness is inevitably expressed in violence.
When you add a violent gang culture such as the Bloods, throw in rampant out-of-wedlock births (72.1 percent among blacks in 2010), and a dash of unemployment, you have a disaster in the making.
Protesters try to bully their politics on our country and hurt black neighborhoods as collateral damage. They are destroying black peoples' hearts by telling them that they must hate other races in order to be free from oppression. Our media must look past its bias and lead the way to discredit this dishonest activism. It will save black lives and bring back real hope.
UPDATE 11/30/14: The death of a violent gangbanger who assaulted a police officer is becoming a call to arms for a wide variety of radical groups. Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, is agitating for a bloody race war. He was captured in a video where he declared, “…we’ll tear this goddamn country apart!”
It was the splitting image of the sermon by Obama’s mentor, Reverend Wright, in which he declared, “God Damn America”. In both cases the congregations exploded with cheer to embrace their leaders’ anti-American message.
Farrakhan’s speech demanded “retaliation” and he quoted the bible saying, “an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth and a life for a life”. With a smile on his face he said, “we are going to die anyway. Let’s die for something”. But unless he gets his race war, Farrakhan will be leaving this world on a bed of silk sheets. You see, this man of self-righteous fury has a net worth of $3 million dollars. He leads a life of privilege way beyond anything you or I can ever hope for. How many of his followers will have to sacrifice their lives so he can reach $4 million?
At the end of the speech Farrakhan’s followers chanted “Allahu Akbar”. Meanwhile the Islamic State terrorist group has offered assistance to the protesters in Ferguson. There have been a number of messages sent out on Twitter. Junaid Hussain; a jihadist from the UK, proclaimed,“We hear you and we will help you if you accept Islam and reject corrupt man-made laws like democracy and pledge your allegiance to Caliph Abu Bakr and then we will shed our blood for you and send our soldiers that don’t sleep, whose drink is blood, and their play is carnage”.
In August a previous wave of tweets were sent out encouraging the protesters. Amreeki Witness wrote, “May be time to organize the Muslims in America upon haqq and mobilize to #Ferguson. Defend the oppressed, start jihad here.”
In other news, members of the Communist Party led protests in St. Louis calling for a Communist revolution. They also cried out for the murder of former police officer, Darren Wilson.
I am ashamed that I once was in the habit of calling policemen, “Pigs”. I apologize for this and wish all the best to the men and women who risk their lives to protect me. Forgiveness is more important than ever…
