Reversing racial politics

July 29, 2013 

In light of the recent event in our area -- the 9-year-old white child who allegedly was killed by a black man in Cahokia -- I find it very compelling that not a single voice has risen to accuse the guilty party of a hate crime or of being a racist.

Perhaps Caucasians don't have enough "leaders" within our ranks (ala Jackson, Sharpton or Obama) to issue marching orders that demand "Justice before peace," all the while stirring the pot for their own personal gain or to further their agendas for power that translate into personal gain. Or maybe we just aren't that easily lead down the path of being useful idiots for puppet masters that rely on racial conflict to achieve what they aren't capable of producing by their own wit, ingenuity, ability, determination or imagination.

Well, maybe it's time we do fight fire with fire -- give 'em a taste of their own medicine. I'm not sayin'... I'm just sayin'.
