    Default Where are our black leaders?

    I am sure we all agree that this kind of extremism is not healthy for our nation (at least I hope we could agree on this) So the debate question is this:
    Where are our black leaders in denouncing this? Where is Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and even President Obama? Why are they not out saying this is wrong?

    Golly, do you think that "our black leaders" ought to denounce to every manifesto on "The 36-page paper, available in PDF form, jumps from talking about black children and autism, to an eating guide, to even an article on home births. " released by some person just because they are black? Heck, the group isn't even recognized by the completely irrevelent "old" Black Panthers.

    Do you want white leaders to jump every time weirdo fringe hate group tea party or westboro group issues some hate speak too? Why lend this tiny group credibility or press by even recognizing them? They are nobody.

    Yes, I do want our leaders to denounce groups that try to tie themselves to groups with legitimacy. I dont see the New black Panthers as being irrelevant, just as I dont see the Aryan nation as being irrelevant. Do you really think that this group has no relevancy?

    eta: it is actually a bit mind blowing that you would think that we should just ignore them? Should we also ignore Aryan nation groups or neo **** groups?

    I think it's funny and a little childlike that you want President Obama to clear his schedule to address this fringe, completely impotent, meaningless group, yes. I think that it is a little flat out strange that you expect it of him just because he happens to share a skin color with these nobodys. I haven't seen Romney addressing the Aryan nation lately, have you? I mean, if that blows your mind, you clearly think that these politicians have a lot more free time to deal with the fleas on the back of the dogs of our nations actual issues than I do.

    I also find your analogy to show that you may be a little uneducated as to who these "New Black Panthers" are. Sorry to go all Wiki on you, but its just easiest.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aryan_Nations (to point, please note FBI and TERRORIST THREAT) Please also note that I can't pinpoint a speech by "our white leaders" speaking out against this (declared terrorist) group in recent weeks. Can you?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Black_Panther_Party (to point, please note "DENOUNCED by the Black Panthers, and the anti defamation league states that the party has much less than the "couple of thousand" members it claims".

    I guess I do think they have more time, or I wish they would take the time to address things like this. Especially after the bounty that was put on the head of George Zimmerman, that was a very public situation.

    I guess I'm glad that they let law enforcement handle what law enforcement is charged with handling, and they deal with doing their job. Giving nut jobs like these guys attention WHEN YOU ARE PRESIDENT encourages nut jobs. Thats obvious. I thought.

    Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson agree with the article from what I understand and President Obama should ignore it as they did not favor him in their article in a good light.

    This was just my first google hit, I will go check out Al now http://www.mediaite.com/tv/rev-jesse...rge-zimmerman/

    ETA: MY google fu finds nothing to prove that Al Sharpton is in any way aligning himself with either this group OR this article OR this group.

    Further reading makes me agree with you and question the actual debate : Lisa, why do you want President Obama to speak out about how he has abandoned black voters and a call to the bullet? Uh, the black vote is integral to his support base and this is a (relatively) tiny news story. Why on earth would he blow this sort of rhetoric and hate up?

    “Black peoples are the *****s and prostitutes of the Democratic Party, and mistreated mistress that is courted in the late of night, but left hanging when it is time for real change in the light of the post election day,” Shabazz wrote, following a dissertation on the need to “Vote for Revolution.”
    Shabazz detailed his past hopes for Obama as the first African-American president, noting that Obama has not lived up to them — specifically by continuing the policies of the Bush administration in the so-called war on terror and ignoring the economic plight of black Americans.
    “The black community is at large no better off that (sic) before he was in office. We are curious as to what his agenda is for Black people in America and if he even has one,” Shabazz added.
    The lead editorial in the 36-page publication is written by the paper’s editor, Chawn Kweli, entitled “4 years and a Bucket of Hope: The Change That Never Came,” which describes the group’s excitement, and subsequent disappointment, after Obama was elected.
    “Mr. Obama’s policies have not corrected the economic troubles of America, they have gotten worse,” Kweli wrote. “The debt continues to expand [into the trillions], and the administration’s handling of international relations has hardened dialogue with foreign nations. Mr. Obama’s policies have been especially harsh to us the Black community. He [Obama] bailed out Wall Street and the auto makers but kept us at the top of the unemployment ladder.”

    I meant the concept in general, not the actual article. I'm tired tonight, sorry.
