The natives are restless in Oakland
Seeing that the residents in Oakland can't protest over how bad their sports teams are, I guess rioting over the shooting of a person they don't even know could be a close second. If you all haven't heard by now, blacks in Oakland are destroying their communities over the verdict that was handed down by the jury in the case of a white police officer Johannes Mehserle convicted of murdering Oscar Grant last year.. The officer was convicted of manslaughter and will face a maximum of four years in prison. The sentence wasn't enough for the "civilized" thugs of Oakland, so they decided to take to the streets in a non violent show of dismay. Ah who am I kidding, they broke into stores and looted them in the name of "justice"?
I'm not exactly sure how breaking into the stores of merchants who had nothing to do with the shooting of Oscar Grant and stealing their merchandise is suppose to be a valid expression of displeasure over the verdict. I have a crazy theory. Could it be that the hoodlums of Oakland really could care less about Oscar Grant and just wanted to use what happened to him as an excuse to steal and vandalize people's property? Nah, it couldn't be that dam simple. It is so ironic that in this video a young black male is saying in a megaphone to be "non violent" and the next thing you hear is the glass to a foot locker store being broken. As Obama once said, this is a "teachable moment". Black are bigger hypocrites when it comes to racial issues then white liberals are. If the young black unarmed man Oscar Grant was shot and killed by a black Oakland street thug, Oscar would have been a five second story on the nightly Oakland News and that would have been it. 83 people wouldn't have been arrested. This wouldn't have been a national story. There wouldn't have been no riots etc etc etc. This fact really can't be disputed. The teachable moment with the riots in Oakland as with the riots that happened in South Central Los Angeles is crystal clear. A black person's life really doesn't have much value until that person is killed by a white person. Allow me to further illustrate my point. I doubt that if Rodney King was beaten up by seven or ten young black men with sticks, his beating wouldn't have been a national story.Try this one on for size. Hundred of black men and woman are killed on the streets of America every year. Their murders aren't at the hands of the Klu Klux Klan, the Aryan Nation or rogue police officers. Their murderers are other blacks mainly young black men. I'm sure there are people foaming at the mouth reading this. All I can say is "prove me wrong". The dark reality is that in 2010, blacks have more to fear from young black males then from any other racial group in this country. In the hip hop culture, black rappers glorify killing other black men. This is a "song" by a rapper known as "Mobb Deep". Listener discretion is advised.
Let me get back to the shooting case of Mr. Grant for a moment. Mr. Johannes Mehserle should go to jail for what he did. Accident or not, there is no excuse. In the heat of the moment could Mr. Mehserle have mistaken his teaser for his gun? It is possible, but it just happened to be a fatal judgment call. That doesn't give blacks in Oakland the green light to act like savage idiots. The old saying is that each generation is suppose to become weaker and wiser. With young blacks, that doesn't seem to be the case at all. As a black male, it was beyond embarrassing watching blacks in South Central Los Angeles destroying their city over a two bit hood rat drunk who was beaten by the LAPD. Now I have to watch black men making fools out of themselves yet again over an incident that wasn't racist in nature. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't the election of Barack Obama suppose to have ushered in the era of "post racial harmony" or something like that?
