'Black mob violence is now so frequent and intense that even big city editors can’t keep it out of the news anymore. [...] The psychiatrists tell us we are only as sick as our secrets. Nothing inspires more secrecy than race. And no one is trying to keep the secrets more than the liberals who run the newsrooms and city halls across the country.'Colin's book certainly hit home last year and continues to do so. "But who’s to say what would happen if black America exerted even half of the emotional fervor and brainpower it does over cases like Martin’s to thinking about how to keep black boys from going wrong?" - John McWhorter ...with links to how the numbers don't lie. "The media needs to be as honest with black people as we need to be with ourselves. No group gets ahead by turning away from its real problems."
I enjoyed the 'Conversation' HERE. First Joel Pollak was saying the the media tit-for-tat was pointless: 'this is a game without winners. I'd rather not play'. "Yes, there is a crime problem in the black community. Yes, there is an failure among black leaders, from Obama on down, to do anything about it. That story doesn't need new white victims to make it potent." Then John Hayward: "What we need is a full frontal assault on gang culture, something on the scale of the media-savvy full-spectrum assault on George Zimmerman's imaginary racism...." and finally, with key points if you ask me, Debra Heine: "But when an incident like the Trayvon Martin killing happens, what we see is a whirlwind of political activity - the race hustlers move in with their bull-horns, the media runs with their racialist narrative, and white liberals, steeped in white guilt, try to outdo each other proving how morally outraged they are about the incident... A sort of mass hysteria ensues. It takes a sort of hysterical blindness not to see the evidence".
Now, before the shrieks of hysteria start I would like to add that statistically the rate of violent crime in the USA - albeit high by first-world standards - is falling and the homicide rate has been falling steadily for centuries when population is considered (an aside: how weird is this?) My point is why does Obama accidentally on purpose always make things worse, surely all these young men - that would look like his son if he had one - need to be told something more than excuses from the race industry hustlers and seeming encouragement from the president; surely he's not a racist? He could be but it certainly seems like everyone who disagrees with him is.

Update 8 pm BST: that 2nd last link names 15 moronic things that liberals blame on racism against Obama: now it's moronic 16.
