Oprah Obama Don't Care If Blacks Murder Blacks
Webster’s Dictionary offers two definitions for the word victim: one that is subjected to oppression, hardship or mistreatment and one that is tricked or duped. Insert the word “easily” in the latter and you have the definition of another word found elsewhere in Webster’s, which is equally fitting in meaning. That word is sucker.
The disquieting fact is that both definitions are applicable to many blacks today. Even though one is more often than not self-inflicted victimization, the other is inflicted victimization.
The self-inflicted involves – but is certainly not limited to – black-on-black crime. In Chicago, the much of the police resources are dedicated to the 7th and 11th districts, respectively.
It is only common sense that neighborhoods such as those in the 7th and 11th districts in Chicago would have low property values, cause higher insurance rates for all and have fewer opportunities for employment and /or neighborhood activities that many of us take for granted.
These districts are not housing projects – they are simply lower-income neighborhoods. Yet, shockingly, 99 percent of the crime in these districts is black on black. One could safely say that constitutes hardship and mistreatment. But it isn’t at the hands of whites or the police. It is at the hands of malevolent anti-social predators.
Not surprisingly, there is also a deep resentment toward the police. Why? Because law and disorder are the oil and vinegar of our society. The law must clamp down on disorder, i.e., crime and the disorderly, i.e., criminals resent any restrictions being placed on their behavior. One would think any police presence would be appreciated (and it should be noted that not all resent police presence), but all too often the police are resented simply for doing their jobs.
Common logic would dictate that since Chicago is Obama’s front yard, so to speak, and since he is the self-professed champion of the oppressed – those suffering from hardship and those being mistreated – he would make time to inject himself into those environs as he found time to inject himself into the justified shooting death of Trayvon Martin. I’m guessing someone in those areas of Chicago must look like his son would look if he had one. And, it is worth noting that Oprah Winfrey hasn’t had a lot, (i.e., anything) to say about it either.
Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., once said: “Minorities are humiliated and angered by the indignity of being treated all too often as presumptive criminals.” Someone needs to remind Schumer and said race-mongers that blacks invite much of it upon themselves.
In the wake of recent racial profiling allegations, the public forgets that the New York Street Crimes Unit officers’ aggressive approach to tackling the drug problem, rapists and felony assaults were responsible for reducing crime.
A date I will never let America forget is March 10, 2003. It was the date New York Detectives Rodney Andrews and James Nemorin were murdered execution style in cold blood, while trying to rid the neighborhoods of machine-gun dealing teen-agers. None save their fellow detectives, families and fellow brothers /sisters in police work grieved or attended their funerals. There were no protests. Susan Sarandon wasn’t there, Sharpton and Jackson didn’t lead marches. It was just two murdered detectives.
So, in the end, the work of many brave law enforcement officers is thrown back in their faces. This is the pall that hangs over the inner-city communities. Black-on-black crime goes unchallenged by the so-called black leaders and the liberal elites, as the predators victimize those who are unable to retreat to safer environs.
It is time for America to stand up to those who malign, but offer no remedy. If the so-called black leadership wants to lead, I submit they must do so by confronting this lingering malignancy that threatens generation after generation and prohibits any hope of prosperity. White guilt and taxpayer dollars are not the cure for those who accuse but fail to take personal responsibility. Self-inflicted victimization should not be a way of life, it should be a crime relentlessly confronted.
