Eight years ago we were told it was time to put a black man in the White
House.According to the Speech Police, that wasn’t racist.
But if someone was to say this year it was
time to “Make the White House White Again,” that would be racist.
Some black folks just don’t seem to understand that white folks who are NOT
racists nevertheless see such hypocrisy and object to it.
Meanwhile, Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, who is black, said recently that “in the course of one
year, I’ve been stopped seven times by law enforcement officers.”He says he was targeted for being black.
But was he?
Was he targeted simply because he was black?Or was he targeted because so many black
males before him have disproportionately committed so many crimes that all
black males are now given additional scrutiny?
When Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is on the
court, he draws all kinds of additional attention because of his track record
of hitting three-pointers.Often, he’s
In basketball, that’s
called common-sense defense.
In inner city law enforcement it’s derided as “profiling.”
The fault for innocent black males drawing additional law
enforcement attention are the bad black males who commit violent crimes.As such, every other black male suffers the
consequences of the bad guys’ actions.
If innocent black males wish to stop being targeted by law
enforcement, maybe they should focus their attention on telling other black
males to stop breaking the law instead of telling police officers to stop
protecting us from criminal black males.
Or as Hillary Clinton calls them, "super predators."

P.S.By the way, I’m betting the poll numbers for the Gary
Johnson/Bill Weld Libertarian ticket have already reached their zenith.And at their height, the numbers never came
close to the 15 percent necessary to be invited to participate in the general
election debates.For better or worse,
that’s the reality.
Whatshername Schultz was the first elected woman chairman of the Democrat
National Committee.Over the weekend,
before the start of Democrats’ convention in Philly, she went down in flames
and out as a miserable failure.
Now the Democrats want the nation to believe that
incompetent and crooked Hillary Clinton
should be elected as the first woman president.What could go wrong, right?
Meanwhile, Crooked picked an old white dude as her running
mate who said America should elect a bridge builder (Hillary) instead of fence
builder (Trump).He said this from
outside the four-mile,
eight-foot high fence the Democrats have built around their convention
center in Philadelphia.
These people are nothing if not major league hypocrites.
In GOP convention wrap-up news, John Kasich said over the weekend it would have been
“inappropriate” for him to speak at the Republican convention in Cleveland last
week without endorsing Donald Trump.If only Lyin’
Ted had had the courtesy to follow Kasich’s example.
And finally, CNN is reporting a 6-point post-convention
“bounce” for Trump, propelling him to a 44-39% lead in the current
four-candidate matchup.It’s the first “significant
post-convention bounce in CNN's polling since 2000.”
“The new findings mark Trump's best showing in a CNN/ORC
Poll against Clinton since September 2015,” CNN is reporting. “Trump's new edge
rests largely on increased support among independents, 43% of whom said that
Trump's convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him.”
By the way, before the FBI announced it was letting Crooked
off the hook in the email scandal, Hillary led Trump 46-39%.Those numbers are now pretty much
reversed.That’s a pretty big 12-point
swing in just three weeks.
