Some things are easy to predict. This is one of them. Local TV news stations all around the nation today will do their required story about the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. And, they’ll trot out their black reporters to do the stories. The national news may also do this.
Isn’t that racism? Why do news directors feel the need to have one of the black reporters do the story on MLK Jr? Why do they send the white male reporter to do the stories on the KKK marches?
Martin Luther King, Jr. was an historic figure who accomplished great things for the nation. He had his flaws. We all do. But he was peaceful and he wanted everyone judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. We have failed him in that regard.
President Obama loves drawing attention to his skin color and, as Ed Morrissey at HotAir.com notes, he even blames his low poll numbers on racism!
The most blatant example came in 2008 when hundreds of thousands of black Americans voted for Obama ONLY because of his skin color. The same year, hundreds of thousands of whites who have been taught they should carry white guilt over what was done to black slaves more than 100 years ago, also voted for Obama ONLY because of his skin color.
The story on MLK day should be that President Obama, the first half-black President, has failed the black community. Unemployment and poverty are worse now for black Americans than they were prior to his election. He has also failed to give a positive message to black youth as we have written about before. I don’t care what race, religion or sex the next President is. I hope that person will be a Conservative American who will end the cycle of dependency on government that has killed the black family. I hope they will end the FAILED war on poverty which has only made things worse.
