Some friends and I were discussing this the other day. It seems to all of us that Racial tensions are at an all time high in this country ( we're all in our early 50's).
From my perspective, growing up was pretty straight forward, some of my favorite personalities/Musicians etc. were Black, Redd Fox, Flip Wilson, Garrett Morse (SNL) Jimi, Mavin Gay, All the great bands of MoTown etc...etc.. I mean we were really color blind.
High school introduced me to face to face Blacks and interaction, nothing, a total non issue.
I swear, when Rush said something like "once Obama takes office, every criticism will be looked at through a Racial perspective and attacked".
Bush was attacked every single day, a Movie depicting his murder was shown, burning him effigy was a normal happening. Reporters were relentless on him , David Gregory made a name for himself and new gig via GW for god sakes. Ed Henry from Fox was a CNN reporter and was on BUSH like flies on $##t and gets trashed by Carney and Obama himself with "oh we get it, your from Fox" as Alinski way of diminishing any question.
Obama himself and his right hand man Eric Holder have routinely inserted themselves into Race Politics, and frankly it's disgusting when you realize they've not once mentioned the Detroit attack on an innocent White driver who hit a young Black boy and they were yelling "Kill that White Mother F**er"!!
How does one square with that ? Seriously.
I remember Rodney King, I remember the outrage..then I remember the guy ripped from his truck an nearly killed by being kicked and Bricks smashed into his head...but he forgave his attackers.
Now Holder is going have DOJ investigation into this guy Silver?? Unreal.
