If I Were Black
If I were black, I would be cringing in shame at the latest photo of Attorney General Eric Holder praising the likes of Al Sharpton, a man on record for very odious words and vile actions.
I would hear my now-deceased grandma when she intoned that you can’t sleep with fleas and not become flea-infested — this from a woman who knew full well the effects of American racism when her husband of 50 years could get a job only as an elevator operator even though he went to Brooklyn College in the Jim Crow days of the 1940s and aspired for more. This from a petite matriarch who would quote Martin Luther King, Jr. that “[t]he Negro must work passionately and unrelentingly for full stature as a citizen, but he must not use inferior methods to gain it. He must never come to terms with falsehood, malice, hate, or destruction.”
But that is precisely what Obama, Holder, and so many of the czars of the White House do. Sharpton’s record is quite clear. Sharpton’s philosophy rests on the premise that American capitalism, racism, and imperialism are intertwined and “[are] a threat to the vital rights of the Black people.” To this end Sharpton helped incite anti-Jewish riots in Crown Heights, New York in 1991 when a Hasidic Jewish driver accidentally ran over and killed a seven-year-old black boy. Sharpton delivered the following inflammatory speech.
Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid. … All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no coffee klatsch, no skinnin’ and grinnin’.
As a consequence, the riled-up crowd went out and murdered innocent rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum. The blacks of Crown Heights rioted for three days and three nights. Not once did Sharpton ever call upon the rioters to stop their anti-Semitic-inspired violence.
