Every American ought to be outraged over the insulting, demeaning and demoralizing comments that cascaded throughout social media, the mainstream media from the so-called tolerant Democrat Party constituency after Senator Tim Scotts’ response to President Biden’s speech. Comments that clearly contradicts the left’s calls for equality, equity, and unity in America.
Hateful ,and I mean very hateful, and disturbing comments referring to Sen. Scott as a “[N word],” “boot licker,” “step ‘n fetch it,” “Uncle Tim” and so on. This hateful display of racism compels me to ask: “Where are the black politicians in the Democrat Party and why are they silent?” Do they agree with the left’s political lynching of black Republicans/conservatives? Are they so entrenched in the ideology of progressiveness and socialism that they are willing to accept and swallow whole racist attacks on other blacks?
I implore our black leaders across America and especially in the U.S. Congress to speak up and denounce such rhetoric. If Sen. Tim Scott is a [N-word] then what does that make them? Biden and Harris, where are you? Faith leaders, where are you? This is shameful and unacceptable!
The black population in America is at-risk despite the fact that blacks make up 13.4% of the U.S. population and are the 2nd largest racial group. The factors that put blacks in America at-risk as follows:
• Black on black crime. Completely overlooked by politicians and the media.
• Illegal drug use and addiction tearing families apart.
• Rioting, looting over police involved shootings that end in destruction of black community businesses.
• Failing schools lacking in rigorous academics and zero vocational skills training.
• Lack of job advancement and entrepreneurial opportunities.
• Need for more positive role-models/mentors.
• Lack of support from elected politic leaders.
• Increasing absenteeism in houses of worship.
• The aborting of black babies, aka “tax-funded murder.”
It is time for every American to stop hating and start appreciating our country’s diversity and greatness. I applaud Tyler Perry for his humanitarian comments after accepting his Academy Award. In short, he said, “Stop hating.” I agree with Mr. Perry and I trust that you agree with him as well.
In closing, Senator Tim Scott is not “Uncle Tim” and to a certain person who enjoy rebutting my commentaries, I am not “Uncle Tyrone”! We are “Americans”! We are endowed with unalienable rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution.
God bless America and let freedom ring!
