“With liberty and justice for all” are great and noble words, but really, they are that… words! Unless we’ve all agreed upon the meaning of these words, or any words for that matter, they are meaningless. And unless we are willing to act upon these words, based on the agreed upon meaning, then, again, they are useless. Are you confused yet? Good!
Lately, I’ve been confused by the words spewed by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and even our own President.
A young life was lost and I agree, it was tragic. If there were any way to fix it, I would be all for it. Jesse and Al say this is a travesty and that we should march into the city and stop our young black men from being killed. Agreed! We need to stop “people” from being killed.
Let’s work with real numbers here. The FBI reports these simple facts: 94% of black people killed in 2012 were killed by other black people. To be fair, 88% of white men killed in 2012 were killed by white people. As my friends on the left love to remind me, statistics don’t lie.
Al and Jesse want to march into the cities, hold vigils, because that will supposedly make things better. Well, Al and Jesse, you been doing that for 50 years and nothing has really changed. Your focus is in the wrong places. The inner cities that are ravaged with crime and poverty are the places you need to go. You have a right to link arms and march down the street. That’s wonderful. But what is it doing for you and how is it helping your cause?
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did it and it was the right action for the right time. You need to close your mouth and take action. March into the cities where, as you put it, “our people are being persecuted and killed” and take a stand. Have a five thousand person march on Detroit over a few days and push the gangs out, paint some homes, feed some people.
