Dear Black People, It's not about race~ White People

I'm still trying to figure out how the white judge, the white prosecutors, the white defense team, and the white jury got to declare "race was not a factor" in a case about racial profiling, in a state with a documented history of racism.

Strike that.  Yes I do.  The white, male, dominated mainstream media enabled them with their media driven racial stereotypes of the scary black man.

Immediately after the verdict there was not one person of color speaking out about the verdict on TeeVee.  CNN even had Texas Governor Rick "N-word head ranch" Perry of all people on air saying justice is color blind.

President Obama said it was time for a real discussion about race and racism, but I can assure you that won't happen if the media has anything to do with it.

This is the media that forced candidate Obama to renounce, repudiate, and reject Rev. Jeremiah Wright for daring to speak truth to power.

This is the media that forced President Obama to tone down remarks made by Attorney General Eric Holder because he asked if Americans were cowards when it came to discussing matters of race.

This is the media that forced President Obama to have a "beer summit" with the Boston police officer who acted stupidly and arrested Dr. Henry Louis Gates for getting uppity  in his own damn house.

And so on, and so on.

So yes, let's have a real discussion about race and racism.  I mean a real hope-to-die, get it all out in the open discussion.  It's times to drain the poison off, so that this nation can heal.  The whole world is watching.  ~GrannyStandingforTruth

I HOPE the white, male, dominated, media won't stand in the way this time.
