In the wake of the inexcusable violence in Charlotte resulting from yet another false-flag narrative foisted upon the ill-informed by the Black Lives Matter movement, it behooves us all to take stock in just how elitist the race-baiters and political opportunists of the race grievance movement are.
Turning the clock back to 2015 and a decision by the then Eric Holder US Justice Department, we find that the good Reverend Al Sharpton was setting the stage for special victim status and preferential treatment of the whole of the Black community. The DoJ decision in question was the one not to prosecute (or better yet persecute) George Zimmerman for a hate crime in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Sharpton’s response to the decision was that we need to change the laws so that a “lower threshold” exists to legally qualify who is prosecuted for a federal hate crime.
While it is unusual for a race-baiting, self-absorbed activist like Sharpton to try to exact change through the legislative process, his quest should be categorically denied by each and every elected official or aspiring public servant. Additionally, the idea of “hate crime” is another topic worthy of reexamination.
Recalling the days of the Trayvon Martin shooting, it was clear, in the aftermath and after all of the evidence was made public, that Martin was culpable in his own demise. But the Black activist community – essentially the precursor to the Black Live Matter “movement” – didn’t care about the facts. They wanted what is now recognized as “special interest justice.”
In an interview with syndicated radio host Tom Joyner, as reported by Breitbart.com, Sharpton railed, “The intent to prove that Zimmerman did it because of his race, that is the legal threshold… Unless we change that legislation, we end up where we are in terms of the Trayvon Martin case. Clearly I’m disappointed. Clearly I’m sure the family is. But clearly the Justice Department cannot go beyond the laws as is written. As we fight these fights and continue to fight from Staten Island to Ferguson, we must change the threshold that you qualify a civil rights case for, or we will keep having these moments of activism that end up with cases of being disappointing…We got to change things, not just be disappointed.”
So, essentially, the good Reverend wants every shooting of a Black person not shot by a Black person to be evaluated as a “hate crime.” Evidently, there is no “hate” in the Black community.
Of course, the notion that there is no hate in the Black community is a ridiculous and provably false notion. There is a great deal of hate in the Black community. All one has to do is to listen to a gangsta rap station for little more than 15 minutes to find out just how much of a hateful demographic exists in the Black community.
Listening – or reading for the bastardization of the English language that takes place in the genre – to gangsta rap exhibits the demographics penchant for misogyny and the abuse of women (and God forbid the lyrical subject is a White woman), for vehement hatred toward law enforcement (almost every other song glorifies the shooting of police as a rite of passage) and a core hatred of all White people.
Stunningly, these “artists” and their “message” are accepted and even condoned – both overtly and tacitly – by the whole of the Black community. This hate-filled “art form” is even celebrated in awards shows.
In fact, this “art form” is an exhibition of the exact stereotype that the Black Lives Matter movement charlatans claim the White community holds against them unfairly.
Hate crime laws in general are discriminatory. I have for years made arguments that to have such laws elevates one demographic in society over others, thus creating a tiered justice system depending on the color of your skin, your sexual orientation, or your religion, among other things. Now, Al Sharpton – the Godfather of race-baiting – wants to lower the legal threshold for applying this discriminatory law.
As the mainstream media fawns over the Black Lives Matter movement, a deeper and more serious conversation is taking place on social media. Many who are tired of getting kicked in the intellectual teeth by the victimhood class of the Black community – the race-baiters and self-serving opportunists – are starting to push back.
The Black community – before anything else can happen – must expunge the hypocrisy of their demands from their own community. Stop and/or dramatically reduce Black-on-Black crime. Speak out against and combat the thug culture of the urban Black communities. Stop making excuses for existing in poverty. Rectify the insanely high truancy of Black students from school and the education process. And condemn those who will blame everyone and anything but themselves for their own station in life.
Sharpton wants to lower the bar for hate crime application? Two words: Tawana Brawley.
