Thank you for reading my first ever posting on my blog.
I had hoped that my first posting would be a humorous dissection of someone in The Bush Administration, or maybe Tom DeLay or Bill Frist - but ignorance screams louder that incompetence and corruption, so I have to aim my anger in another direction.
ENTER - BILL BENNETT
Bill Bennett is a dangerous, ignorant, conservative, racist.
On Wednesday, September 28th - Bennett made the following comment on his Salem Radio Network show "Morning in America":
BENNETT: "Well, I don't think it is either, I don't think it is either, because first of all, there is just too much that you don't know. But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."
Now, I am a realist. I know that racism exists. I know that there are white people that hate Black people, and vice-versa. And, I know that these people sometimes hate each other for no other reason than the color of their skin.
But when someone airs their hatred, and their ignorance, and their stupidity, and their obtuse, narrow-minded opinions on a nationally broadcasted program, and the mainstream media and the God fearing - Christian Conservatives and leftmost Liberals all seem to turn the other cheek. I know we have a problem in America.
While Bennett quickly and deftly tried to spin a disclaimer after his comment, his bottom line was 'Blacks cause crime in America... take Blacks out of the equation, and crime goes away..." This type of mindset is nothing more than blatant, dangerous, hate-filled old-fashioned racism at it's finest.
In my opinion, Bill Bennett should be taken off the air, fined, fired and smacked across the face by each and every one of the un-aborted, successful, intelligent, law-abiding Black children of the last 40 years.
Bill, welcome to the top! You are now at the top of the "20 Most Dangerous People to the American Blacks" list. The Thinking Black Man will be watching you!
