Great post unfortunately the story is a sad commentary on what is happening in America. That racism that has festered beneath the surface, the fear that the white entitlement and power structure is eroding is rearing its ugly head. Blacks knew it was just beneath the surface of the social fabric of America but we had thought more people were “accepting of our Blackness” and what was once intolerance and hatred was slowly disapperaing, the truth is that Barck Obama the POTUS only served to lay bear the true under belly of American Society…for many we will always be the “THEM” the “OTHER. For many we will always be the ones the real Power Mongers uses as a distrction for those small minded and ignorant whites who see Blacks as a threatn and inferior… so like the pick pocket who use a distraction for the mark we are the distraction for those who harbor racism by those who seek control.
They are dividing children and making them feel small and inconsequential as though they were an inferior group of people and their oppression was not only acceptable but Understandable it is a shame and is poisoneous to this Country. But it is unfortunately not a unique tactic but one in which Black Americans are quite aware of.
