Is there 1 white man who has any courage?

And I sought for a man among them, that should … stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
– Ezekiel 22:30
Why are white Americans afraid to speak truth to black Americans?
Let me start with a tale of two Michaels:
Michael Richards, the “Seinfeld” co-star who lashed out at a black heckler, repeatedly calling the man a “ni—r,” has since made numerous apologies to black Americans.
He apologized on David Letterman’s “Late Show” – but that forum wasn’t “black enough” – so Richards was forced to grovel on Jesse Jackson’s radio show.
The black man Richards insulted has retained Gloria Allred. Next month, he will express his contrition in front of a retired judge who will determine how much money Richards should dole out for hurling the “N” word.
Then there’s the Nov. 25 shooting in New York City, where NYPD officers shot Sean Bell, a 23-year-old black man outside a strip club in Queens when he tried to ram an officer with his car. The incident has outraged Rev. Al Sharpton (“the Riot King”) and other black leaders.
Sharpton is threatening to lead a massive pre-Christmas march along Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue – stating, “We’re going shopping for justice this Christmas.”
Let’s not forget that Sharpton gave us the Tawana Brawley hoax and provoked the Crown Heights riot in the Hasidic (Jewish) section of Brooklyn.
Why should anyone listen to this hypocrite?
After the police shooting, Michael (the other Michael) Bloomberg, the mayor of NYC, met with Sharpton and other black racist agitators and prematurely criticized the deadly shooting, calling it “inexplicable” and “unacceptable.” Can you say “cave”?
What has happened to white men in this country?
White men used to be tough. John Wayne, Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan exemplified a strong male image. But because of the successful attack – by secular progressives like NOW (National Organization of Women who Hate Men), the ACLU, homosexual groups and liberal black leaders – most white males have been emasculated.
Years of scapegoating and charges of racism have intimidated whites to the point that they no longer speak out on issues concerning race and morality.
After Dr. King’s assassination in 1968, Jesse Jackson showed up in front of the news cameras holding a bloody sweater. This is all it took for him to be promoted by the elite media as the “heir apparent” to King.
This despite Jackson’s repeated falling out with Dr. King’s organization, the SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference).
In 1971, Ralph Abernathy, King’s successor at SCLC, suspended Jackson for “administrative improprieties and repeated acts of violation of organizational policy.” Jackson then left the group and started Operation PUSH.
The mainstream media keep wicked black leaders like Jackson in power. Whenever there’s a racial issue in this country Jackson or Sharpton are on the airwaves to “blame whitey.”
The media and false black leaders succeeded in changing the allegiance of many black Americans – from a pro-family, pro-God people to a government-dependant people as we witnessed during Katrina.
White people are angry at Jackson and the phony civil-rights leaders who have made a living off of blaming them for the problems of blacks. And they’re angry about the double standard when it comes to racial issues – and for not being allowed to openly express their disagreements with blacks.
But they remain silent.
This has resulted in the phenomenon of white fear – fear of criticizing blacks – no matter how corrupt, immoral or evil the perpetrator.
Since whites are not allowed to express themselves, they either cower down like Michael Bloomberg, or they lash out in anger like Michael Richards. Then Jesse Jackson swoops in and points to the overreaction as evidence of white racism – to exploit the situation for profit.
White Americans need to stand up for truth with strength and patience. If we can find white people with courage, we can change this country – and the tale of two Michaels would have a happy ending.
What is courage? Well, I can tell you what courage is not: 1) Courage is not resenting blacks and complaining to your white friends behind closed doors. 2) It’s not tolerating black misconduct, and 3) Courage is not adopting the divisive, politically correct term “African American.”
As for black Americans, they need to repudiate their “leaders” and let go of past grievances, lest they self-destruct.
It will take decent whites and blacks to come together to live out the promise of Dr. King’s dream. Then, America will finally become the land of the free and the home of the brave!
