I’ll Bet This Hurts Obama, Too

…During what a source described as a “heated” phone call yesterday, Sharpton told Obama he was disappointed with the Illinois senator’s words on Friday, when Obama said “resorting to violence to express displeasure” was “completely unacceptable and counterproductive.”


“[Obama] issues this statement and not a single rock had been thrown,” said a source.

How does the candidate of change ask people to accept a verdict that is unjust?

Such a candidate asks them to “DEAL WITH IT”. That’s what happens in a democracy. Perceived injustices also have other avenues of remedy, like a federal prosecution ~ ask the Rodney King cops ~ or civil court action ~ ask OJ Simpson. Not perfect, but something, right? There are no victors in this match. One of my favorite quotes from a favorite movie covers it nicely.

“Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.”

You don’t get to advocate turning the world upside down, destroy other people’s property, livliehood or lives because it didn’t play out how you knew it would. Think MoToon, Rev Al. Set that match with TV cameras rolling and whaddaya got? Something quickly way out of your control, Master Agitator.
Why not try a novel concept ~ tell black kids to stay in school. Make learning as important as thinking you’ll be the next rap star or thug football player or basketball star. Appreciate those in your community who have worked hard to rise to the top, instead of deriding them as “Uncle Toms” or “Condiskeezas”. Make those people the idols of your youth, instead of the brother who has 8 children by 6 different women. Encourage African American youth to be BEHIND the bench, instead of in front of it. There’s no reason on earth why they can’t do it. There’s no reason on the face of God’s earth WHY there’s not a great multitude already in those positions. No reason other than the sweet race-baiting ride you and your Rev Wright/Rev Jesse pals’ve got going. I guess if you show people they’re not near as needy as you’ve led them to believe they are, then your gravy train of entitlement and rage goes away, doesn’t it?
Everything doesn’t always go your way, or the way you think is right, but life is like that.

How you handle it makes you a man.
And a role model.

    It’s not out of his “control.” That’s exactly how he wants it.

    Spot on, Sis. And the fact that it’s not out of his “control” is the primary reason why I despise agitators like Sharpton. Or Jackson. Wright, he’s plain nuts, but is no less to blame than the others.
    And as for DEAL WITH IT…..that’s very sound advice. I remember the murder of an NCO in my battaltion, which eventually resulted in an OUTRAGEOUS sentence by the Military Court of Appeals.
    But no one rioted as a result.
    Guess we weren’t good enough victims, huh?

    Ironic that these “men of the people” do more to hold “the people” back than anything else. Worst of all, “the people” are mostly willing to be the eternal victims.
