Message to Jesse Jackson; A Tweet about Chris Lane Murder is not ‘Speaking Out’

Jesse Jackson, A tweet is not “speaking out.”

When George Zimmerman kills a black kid it is race hatred. When these kids kill a white person it is just “frowned” upon. Rather like talking on a cell phone in a movie theater is frowned upon. Why the difference?

  1. Because Jesse is racist? Nope, he may be a racist but this is not the correct answer.
  2. Because blacks killing other blacks or blacks killing whites does not promote the race baiting industry? BINGO !!!! This is the correct answer.

Black leaders need to speak up not only when their community is the target of violence, but also when they are the perpetrators. Violence leads to violence and the community’s role models and leaders need to take a more active, vocal, and visible stand against it in all forms as it continues to pervade black youth culture. Don’t make excuses; don’t point to upbringing or circumstances or media. Condemn acts of violence like this for what they are; symptoms of a broken culture that is in serious need of healing and repair.

Your miniscule effort in this case where blacks were the criminals came ONLY after there was an avalanche of inquiries as to why you and Sharpton were so silent on the subject. If the victim had been black, you would have been there before the paramedics shouting social injustice at the top of your lungs. Social justice should apply to everyone, not just blacks.
