The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) “race-hustlers” are out in force right now. The leadership of the African-American community has been activated and we will be able to see how they respond to this situation in Ferguson.
The nation will have a rare opportunity to watch how all this plays out in the media and on the ground in one city with all of the African-American (AA) community involved at every level. It will permit us insight into the wisdom, maturity, and respect for law that pervades this community.In that respect, this is much like the OJ Simpson trial. The passions of the AA community were heightened and they played out across the nation and then we saw the aftermath of that activity and the general attitude of these minorities toward the rule of law.
This is another example to see the values and standards that are at the core of the AA segment of our population. Do they have moral and ethical codes that they share with the rest of the nation, or do they expect different treatment. We can put up a mirror on two incidents; this one in Ferguson, and another in CA, the famous Mumia Abu-Jama.
These types of comparisons can be quite revealing when examined in detail. And the events in Ferguson may be infrequent, but they will put the judgement of AA leaders in the spotlight and help us all understand their motivations and their sense of decency!
I wish we lived in a world that did not need groups, but we do not. I have never benefited from anything the CBC has done matter of fact, I really could not tell you the relevancy of having one. In my opinion, in regards to the issue of Ferguson, the media knows and understands the distrust blacks have towards law enforcement and they helped stoke the flames.
It’s time for the CBC to be removed. They are done.
