Comment Of The Week From Robert Oliver
Robert Oliver responded August 8 to my Daily Rant titled “A Few Observations”
I was raised like you. My home did not talk about “the white man.” Neither did my grandparents who came from segregated states. (My mother’s father Cap Ferguson was mentioned in Tony Brown’s book What Mama Taught Me. He knew my relatives in West Virginia.)
Over the last 30 years, I discovered that many blacks love thinking they are being oppressed. There are blacks who wake up in the morning saying to themselves, smiling and excited, “I wonder how the white man is going to oppress me today!” You probably heard about a Chicago talk radio station called WVON. Years ago when I lived in Chicago, I listened to it every day because friends were hosts of talk shows. I could be a millionaire if I had a penny every time I heard the term “the white man” and “when are black folks gonna wake up?” What turned me off to listening was when a black man was talking about how whites would cut off black men’s testicles in the South. He seemed happy to talk about it.
So you are absolutely right.
I’m happy I did not grow up with my mind poisoned. That is why I’m very sensitive to all the hoopla over Trayvon Martin. People act like he is the first homicide victim of a “white” man since 1968. Yet Jamiel Shaw Jr. in Los Angeles can get killed by a Mexican gang member because Shaw was black and you don’t hear anyone from the Civil Rights Industrial Complex crying “JUSTICE FOR JAMIEL.” (I know his father.) And I’m all over it concerning Tawana Brawley. I wrote a letter to Steven Pagones. He went to school with my cousin in Beacon, NY. I wrote I was very disgusted that he was forced into the public eye by Brawley’s deceit. And I’m disgusted that there are blacks who believe Brawley was actually raped, despite the documented proof she lied. Even her boyfriend said she lied and I have a cousin went to school with Brawley in Newburgh, NY who believed she lied. My cousin had personal insight into who Brawley was. And the smoking gun is the $300,000 “legal defense fund” they took when they fled New York state to Virginia. Bill Cosby contributed to that fund as well as many other blacks. The Brawleys got their money by fraud and used it for their own purposes. And the money is gone. Why are not people asking questions about that???
Bill Cosby got punked and he knows it. Another black-on-black crime.
