Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) on Tuesday will convene a meeting of her Commission on Black Men and Boys in Washington to discuss “Lessons from the Life and Death of Trayvon Martin.”
The commission, which Norton founded several years ago, will hear from four witnesses and attempt to pull together lessons from Martin’s February shooting, which has prompted a wave of criticism that his shooter, George Zimmerman, has yet to be arrested. Authorities in Florida say Zimmerman claimed Martin’s death was an act of self-defense.
“I commend our community for the almost spontaneous rallies for justice for Trayvon Martin,” Holmes Norton said last week. “The national outpouring is clearly having an effect and will continue until an official law enforcement setting allows for justice for Trayvon in accordance with due process under the law for all concerned.
“However, this African-American boy has become both a personal tragedy and a larger than life symbol for the black families that, over the decades and centuries, have lost men and sons without accountability from those responsible,” she added. “Trayvon’s life, and certainly his death, demands not only a careful review of what happened in Sanford, Florida, but also of what we should do tomorrow in America about violence against African-American men and boys.”
OK, let us be frank here, let us be as brutally honest as possible. Over 90% of murders of Blacks are committed by OTHER Blacks. Why in the Hell is the CBC not all over that? Maybe because they cannot win elections by actually helping better the state of Black Americans? There are many legitimate problems facing Black Americans, that high murder rate, an obscene out-of-wedlock birthrate, gangs, crime, and yes, another major problem plaguing the Black “community” is groups like the CBC, the NAACP, and individuals like Je$$e Jack$on, Al Sharpton, Cornell West, Michael Eric Dyson, and Tavis Smiley, among others.
These groups, and individuals I just named are NOT about anything but weighing Black Americans down with anger, bitterness, and of course, an eternal sense of victimhood. Anything for a vote or a donation! Race baiting is a BIG business, built on the souls of Black Americans by Leftist leeches like Eleanor Holmes Norton. Of all the things that would benefit Black Americans, rejecting the divisive rhetoric of the race baiters is near the top if the list.
I hear lots of talk about “empowerment”, and “justice”. If Black Americans truly desire these things, and I know they do, then they should tell the Sharptons, Jacksons, and the rest to pound sand!
And yes, I know I will be accused of “RAAAAACISM” for this post, and I wear that as a badge of honor. Because one of the greatest truths of life is this. When the Left starts calling you names, you know you are right!
