Folks, I believe human beings are responsible for their behavior. However, as America’s first black president, fair or unfair, Obama’s presidency comes with enormous responsibility in terms of its influence on black youths. This is why it is so unfortunate that American black youths’ ultimate role model is a characterless, race-baiting political hack.
While I am not saying president Obama is responsible for the epidemic of black youth flash-mob attacks on whites around our country, his race-baiting has to be a contributing factor. (Read more)
Lloyd really makes several valid points in this blog. The only point he didn’t really touch on is the one I’ve mentioned here before and that Maxine (we’ll socialize your oil companies) Waters brought up in Michigan this week: lack of employment for minorities.
The fact that nothing has been done to curb the unemployment rate among Black males, especially young Black males, has had to have had a profound effect on that community. When people are working, young people especially, they have a lot less time to engage in mischief and crime.
I find it really telling too, that when these flash mob videos are shown on television or written about in the media, there is virtually NO mention that these are black kids overrunning and clearing the shelves in stores like 7-11. It’s as though the media is afraid to admit the obvious – like the emperor has no clothes.
On the one hand the Black community has been totally disaffected by the left’s do-good, nannyism that has destroyed their families for the last 50 years, while at the same time they are marginalized by the highest rate of unemployment and empowered by the first Black president to do whatever they choose to in the name of pay-back for misrepresented racism.
The leadership and example that these children need is not coming from their president – the first place it should be coming from. But it could be coming from the Lloyd Marcus’, Allen Wests, Thomas Sowells of the world, if only these kids would pay attention to the message.
