To The Daily Sun,
In response to Bernadette Loesch's letter last Friday in the Sun: I a simple man, am perplexed by most of your reply. I mentioned that it was likely you had never heard of George Thomas and the horrifying rape and murders committed by George and four others. Your seemingly incoherent reply, "I will admit to you that I do not know either individual you refer to in your letter. But I will tell you this fact. I know that they were both involved in crimes whether they be the alleged perpetrator or victim". Sheesh, it's an AFLAC duck/Yogi Berra redux moment. You obviously did not check out the situation at all. The two people killed were not involved in any crimes whatsoever. George and the four other perpetrators had been involved in numerous unlawful activities.
And judging by your response, you are copacetic with the Maryland teacher injecting an inaccurate racist component in her lesson plan by using the Emmitt Till murder as a comparison to the Martin/Zimmerman case. You said, "who better than a teacher who is qualified and responsible for the education of our children...right?" Only if one thinks indoctrinating our youth with racialist, progressive, revisionist history is a good thing.
Bernadette, you are spot on when you said, "in this day and age for skin color to cloud our opinions be it positive or negative, pollutes any logical decisions or outcomes in the legal arena and in our daily lives". President Obama, certain Democrats, the mainstream media, Hollywood and Eric Holder's thoroughly corrupt justice department are classic examples. Judicial Watch obtained documents revealing that the Department of Justice helped organize demonstrations and protests against Zimmerman under the guise of being sent to offer calm guidance and maintain the peace. And that was using unsolicited taxpayer funds to boot.
As writer and radio host, Derek Hunter notes, Progressives need people to believe America is a horribly and hopelessly racist nation to justify bigger government and more thought crimes. I would add, also to keep Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous (NAACP president) relevant since as Derek says, "actually talking about and solving problems for which they've appointed themselves champions would put them out of business".
Christopher Paslay, M.Ed, notes how many people in 21st century America believe "colorblindness" is an ideal and goal we all strive for. Unfortunately, a liberal professor at Eastern University while giving a lesson about social justice, told the class that "colorblindness" is a code word for white supremacy. So I ask you, just which group is it that seems reluctant to admit that white racism against blacks is really quite hard to find today. Which is why progressives made up the story that George Zimmerman had racial animus in his heart when there was no evidence whatsoever to make that claim. Look up Sherman Ware, homeless black man in 2010 when George came to his aid to get a police officer's son charged with assault.
Karin McQuillan, author and psychotherapist reminds us how the country working together, black and white, Republican and Democrat, Christian and Jew, were wildly successful in overcoming racism and discrimination to a very large degree. She says that within a generation, racism became rare and socially unacceptable. According to a World Values survey, only 3.8 percent of Americans are reluctant to have a neighbor of another race. Within two generations, we elected a black president who has a black Attorney General, after already having two black Secretaries of State.
I find it incomprehensible and so sad that our own president, ably assisted by Eric Holder and their progressive armies, continue to promote victimhood and impart the notion to black children that the deck is stacked against them. Hundreds of black men, women and children are murdered every year in the inner cities of America and there are no Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson demonstrations demanding justice and solutions for them. They are merely nameless faces dying silently in the graveyards of political correctness while the race hustlers recommit to their relentless search for the next white on black crime. Bernadette, I hope you are with me in what should be a bipartisan quest for a true colorblind society. And in any future letters to me, please make sure they are indeed logical and cohesive. After all, I am but a simple man trying to make sense of this crazy world of ours.
