A message we should hear more about

From this article about some conservatives who were disappointed with the “flavor” of the events commemorating the 50th anniversary of MLK’s famous speech (via Instapundit):

Mia Love, the Republican mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, is black and was born in Brooklyn, N.Y.

She contends that modern-day civil rights activists, in league with the Democratic Party, de-incentivize personal responsibility and economic independence.

  1. Talk about incredible luck in seeing topics appears!

    Today, on Fox News, the issue was brought up about some of the lyrics used by black rappers. One of the Fox News commenters, Jemhu Greene, who is black and liberal and IMHO biased against whites if not overtly racist (she called Tucker Carlson a “bow-tying white boy” during a debate), appropriately criticized the language and message used by the “artists”, but then she went and did the very thing that Mia Love describes – she shifted the responsibility for this language away from the black rappers and blamed the record companies and the existence of a profit motive.

    Huh?

    Just because the rappers are getting paid big bucks, it’s not their fault? I guess that in her world I could get a job as a high priced hit man (the higher priced the better) and my guilt would be absolved.

    I was listening to Dennis Prager this week (he was interviewing a black conservative community activist, Joe Hicks). They both made the point that there are two camps when it comes to problems facing the black community. One – typified by the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons see the causes as external, i.e. everything is someone else’s fault (and can usually be solved with more money). The other sees the problems as internal, e.g. the breakdown of the family unit and the absence of black fathers. This is the essence of what Mia Love has been saying for years – blacks need to take responsibility for themselves and their community and, rather than continuing to depend on DC for a handout, become economically independent.

  2. Those current “leaders” (Sharpton, Jackson, et. al.) of the what is referred to as the civil rights movement (but which has morphed into a business based on extortion and leftist power brokering) have looked deep into the content of their character and they long ago decided that they would best be judged by the color of their skin rather than their character lest they big in serious trouble.
