Freddie Gray, a black man who died in police custody in Baltimore, Maryland was laid to rest yesterday. Soon after, the people protesting his death were cast aside by thugs and riots, looting and destruction took their place. Many days of peaceful protest got squandered yesterday. I support the peaceful protests these concerned people exhibited over the demise of Mr. Gray. What I can't understand is the thuggery in a democrat city run by democrats for many years. (It is represented by Elijah Cummings a black democrat Congressman who screwed over a Texas woman with the IRS)
After I heard with my own ears the black democrat woman Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, state in a press conference that the protesters needed "space to destroy" I knew things would escalate and get really ugly. Why would a Mayor say that? My goodness, is she a "community organizer"? Obama today held a joint press conference with Japanese President Abe and he took many minutes to give us all his Professorial SIX POINTS on the Baltimore rioting.
Then I listen to the apologists on the TV shows and in print for all this rioting and I seem to now understand this a bit better. It seems no matter what is done to try and solve these issues of inner city troubles, it cannot be solved because there is no pressure to do so. Sure slavery was a terrible thing (I and my ancestors never owned another human) and it is a blight on the country's past, but this is 2015 and 150 years past the Civil War for goodness sakes. It is time to stop the whining and finger pointing, roll up the sleeves and start improving lives. This country gives every single person a free education. mainly paid for by the property taxes of people who own land and other kinds of property. Why not get that High School diploma?
I mean come on, it is "free", all we ask is please show up and get your education! But the people I hear complaining about how terrible the place is never are asked why the hell did you drop out of a free education system? This goes for all people and not just one race. But when we see blacks, mostly thugs of a high school age, with their hoodies placed over their heads burning and rioting a city, we have to ask. "Why not stay in school, graduate then get a good job"? Never asked is it? So we see these young men stealing a package of condoms or toilet paper like it was some victory over the tiger on a hunt. Jeeze!
What I see mostly from the race baiters and haters is one set of excuses after the other for this bad behaviour. These hustlers tell us, "we need more money" to solve these issues. Say what? These young men are wearing Air Jordans, watching their flat screens and doing social media on their $899 I-Phones. They have a full stomach and decent clothes. So where is the poverty being exhibited? It is all about the liberal mindset and their policies passed and implemented over the last fifty years.
It is on display in these riots and their aftermath. When President Obama dissed the police and claims this happens all the time across America how is that helpful? (Untruthful too) Obama has no solutions as shown by his statements today. After almost seven years as the most powerful man in America, where are his ideas to help the minority families and the young men full of rage and anger? Nowhere to be found. Rather than dissing the police all the time, perhaps some "tough love" from a black man? I know the blacks in America expected good things to come when they overwhelmingly (95%) put Obama in office. What did they get? Julia and a free cell phone with a few prepaid minutes.
The country can move forward to success but the people, all people of all races, need to reject the hustlers and apologists for bad behavior and laziness. Only then will all American be able to experience the success they can achieve if they would just redirect that negative finger pointing into the positive. Obama has failed to lead and we see the results. More cities may be at risk and if we don't see a better response from the Mayors and Governors, we have a lot of fires to put out.
