If there is yet another way for the liberal media pundits at MSNBC to divide the country into one more hyphenated racial group it will certainly find a way. They rose to the occasion yet again, when they asked the question “Will Obama address the ‘State of the Black Union’?” Now it appears that the annual State of the Union (SOTU) is not sufficient for some in the liberal media and certainly does not square with black leaders who need a color-coded SOTU that addresses or targets black America.
Does this not seem a little like re-segregation which was what Rev. Martin Luther King in his historic 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech was sacrificing his life and work to rid America of? What logical sense does it make to re-invent yet one more way for America to be chopped up into more segregated segments, when issues are issues whether you are in the suburbs or in the inner city?
Perhaps it was the Michael Brown death and the lies describing how he died which fueled the need for some to embrace a black version of the State of the Union which should be used to address their problems. According to MSNBC, there are some activists who feel that the killings of unarmed black Americans by police demands attention that would not be given in Obama’s annual address to congress.
Is it not possible that Obama, who has already added race-baiting to his various infamous accomplishments over his years as occupant of the Oval Office, does indeed get it? Of course he does, he has always had a flare for diverting responsibility away from the obvious culprits who create the real problems in the black community. Obama and the liberals ignore .black on black crime, lack of a two-parent households and supporting parents’ fighting for their child’s education rights.
Instead, the liberal and “blame the white man” activists seem to believe that Obama has not done quite enough to give them enough fuel to incinerate communities like Ferguson two or three times over. These activists believe taking responsibility for one’s own actions means taking more government handouts, more freebies and less individual initiative is sufficient. Therefore they reason that a “State of the Black Union” type speech by Obama is in order.
Here’s a newsflash: stop whining, complaining, marching and burning down neighborhoods because alleged criminal types like Michael Brown can be raised up of heroes while the police who protect them are portrayed as demonized zeroes. Take a quick look down the block and see if there is a white police officer ripping off your elderly neighbor. What about that drive by shooting that killed the young teen that studied every day and was planning to go college instead of to an early grave? Who was and is responsible? There is your state of black urban America. No real speech needed.
Is that the State of the Black Union that these poverty pimp rhyme toting, police blaming, white guilt shaming, and lazy up at night thugging individuals want the president to address? Well there is no need for a national televised “State of the Black Union”. Just get Beyonce or Jay-Z to create a song about the State of the Black Union. You can be certain in less time than it takes for a thug in the street to commit another black on black crime it will go viral.
Now that may be the true state of the Black Union in America. How tragic.
