LISTEN to BLACK MAN THINKIN’


A Case of Misplaced Sympathy?

Perhaps you’ve seen this video of Tony Farmer, a rising senior at Garfield Heights High School in Ohio and a top college basketball prospect, reacting to hearing a judge sentence him after he pleaded guilty to several crimes, including 3 felonies:

There it is! Another young black man going to prison instead of college! Another hateful white judge, ignoring the pleas of teachers, coaches, family members, and even the crime victim not to send Tony Farmer to prison! This is what’s wrong with America – killing opportunity for young black people even before they can realize their potential! This situation requires immediate action. People need to organize. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson need to travel to Ohio and speak to this situation. Recall Judge Pamela Barker! . . .

Recall this portion of the April 2008 Democratic presidential debate regarding taxes:

Credit Charlie Gibson for attempting to make a point: History consistently shows tax revenues are higher when the tax rate is lower. Obama twice sidestepped Gibson’s question, first talking about “fairness” (huh?), effectively saying that lower rates are unfair, no matter how much more money they raise. The second time he questioned the historical link between low tax rates and higher tax revenues by saying “… uh, eh, eh-eh, That MIGHT happen, uh, or it might not…” Hillary Clinton simply answered a different question than the one posed.

Ice T, soundin’ a bit like a Foundin’ Father.

Tracy Marrow, also known as Ice T, went on TV in the UK after the “Batman Rises” shooting in Colorado to defend the 2nd amendment. Check out the video above.

What got my attention were these words: “The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.” The brotha sounds downright Jeffersonian. In fact, Thomas Jefferson said, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
