Sometimes race is thicker than logic

Sometimes race is thicker than logic
The fact that a Ferguson or ten Fergusons haven't exploded under this President and his Attorney General is more than amazing. It's a sign that white police officers are no longer vested in the crimes of killing blacks. You can bet your EBT card that the race-baiter-in-chief, Barack Obama and his self-described "activist" AG, Eric Holder are always looking for white-on-black crime.

George Zimmerman's killing of Trayvon Martin raised their hopes. Falsely identified as a "white Jew," Zimmerman proved to be a Hispanic, white and just for good measure, part black—whose BFF was black . He wasn't a cop either, just a community watchman.

Making money is easy if you have the ink and paper

The question often arises why Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Eric Holder and the rest of the race-baiters in the Congressional Black Caucus pay little attention to the fact that 91% of blacks—are killed by other blacks. Every weekend, hundreds of shootings kill or cripple blacks in the hood. Most are children.

I'll tell why no attention is paid to the latter.

There ain't no cash in black on black. All of the above really don't give a rat's arse how many blacks are murdered as long as they can find a white racist, preferably a cop who's in the Tea Party, as the perp. Jackpot! Fund-raising explodes—power is maintained—blacks are kept down on the Dem Plantation. Jesse Jackson was rumored to be going door-to-door collecting, while setting up a Dem registration booth very close to where Michael Brown was killed.

In every instance, there are some local playas. Regarding Ferguson, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon made a statement that was a verbal lynching of the white police officer involved in Michael Brown's death, identified as Darren Wilson. I'd like to know what the MO National Guard, Highway Patrol, Sheriffs and the personal bodyguards of the Governor and those who protect the AG and the President think about this verbal assassination.

A week ago, I told my radio audience that while it looked bad for the police officer we needed to wait. Sure enough, lots of information has come out, some verifiable—some not.

Here's what we think we know right now:


  • Michael Brown had just robbed a store of a package of cigars. When the clerk confronted him Brown pushed the man into a display. When the worker came back at him, Michael, then halfway out the door, turned to face the clerk and walked quickly at him. The man backed off.

  • The first encounter between Officer Wilson and the boys occurred when they were walking in the middle of a busy street obstructing traffic within minutes of their strong-arm robbery. He pulled up and instructed them to walk on the sidewalk. They refused, saying they were almost at their destination. Cursing was involved.

  • Wilson pulled up and parked. He got a report of the robbery with a description of Michael and the goods. He backed up to Michael and opened his door. Michael ran toward the vehicle and slammed it shut while punching Officer Wilson. There was a struggle for Darren's gun. A shot went off the vehicle. Later it was reported that Wilson had sustained an orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket. Michael and Dorian ran.

  • Injured and dazed, Officer Wilson got out of his car with his gun drawn. He ordered Brown and Jackson to freeze. Brown taunted Wilson and said something to the effect of, you really gonna shoot me? As he said this, Michael turned to face Wilson and bum-rushed him. Wilson fired multiple shots at the charging 6'4", 300-pounder, hitting him six times. The fatal shot hit at the top of Michael's head as he was rushing him, killing him immediately.
If this is the case, then it was a legitimate shooting. Sad as it is for the Brown family, justice was carried out. Apparently, Michael Brown picked the wrong guy to bully that day. He didn't quite get the fact that he wasn't impervious to bullets.

For all the naysayers in the race-baiting business, I would pose this question: If the man in the car had been President Obama, how many bullets would a bum-rushing Michael Brown have taken from a much less dazed Secret Service team when Brown got within 35 feet?

Maybe our President will spend a little more time shutting down our border and putting boots on the ground to destroy ISIS.

But I doubt it.

It's still golf season.
