RB – Kevin, there’s a word we hear more and more, not from a historical perspective, but from a blaming, guilt producing, justification standpoint. That is slavery. All races had slaves, whites, blacks, Muslims, Asians, everyone. Blacks participated in their own slavery as much as the white ship owners who brought them here and sold them. It's a spot on our history but it happened in every country and still does – except in America. Simply, why do so many in our modern day society continue to live in those times and fall back on the practice as a crutch for their own lack of achievement, and supporting and promoting their hatred for whites who had nothing do to with the practices of the past?
RB – Is there such a self-promoting, self-preservation mindset of hatred that liberals are willing to say and do anything for their own misguided causes? Ferguson police released a security video showing Michael Brown stealing from a convenience store and assaulting the store’s owner. MSNBC’s Al Sharpton said, “First of all, this is the young man, y’all quit trying to exaggerate. That was shoplifting, not robbery.” [“shoplifting” from a thug who later attacked a police officer to do harm.]
RB – The word “mantra” has its roots in Hinduism and Buddhism; a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. And yet today, from a base of peacefulness to a platform for violence, we seem to develop them for repeatedly showing ignorance. We move from mantra to mantra as the societal needs strike us and the slogan of today seems to be “black lives matter.” Of course black lives matter, white lives matter, red and yellow lives matter but groups are now forcing us to apologize when we say “all lives matter.” As if the black lives are superior above all others and therefore deserving of special consideration, forgiveness, recognition, forgetting that every life, every situation, every detail is different and a simple slogan does not cloak our lives.
RB – On a similar topic, author Marc Lamont Hill claimed police killed an unarmed black individual "every 28 hours." (referencing a report issued by the Malcolm X’s Grassroots Movement). How do these lies get started and why are they allowed to continue? Where are the Will Smiths, Jamie Fox's, Danny Glovers and Denzel Washingtons of the world, why do they not look out for their own race in combating these lies - what's their motivation for allowing these lies to go unchallenged or are they just anxious to stay out of the line of fire and live their lives? They possess a powerful voice for truth and yet many times either seem to ignore the conversation or actively participate in it on the wrong side of reality.
From Kevin’s latest book, Race-Pimping, on Marc Lamont Hill:
RB – Does Kevin at this point want to step out and proclaim a favorite candidate for next year or are you holding that in reserve for more information and revelations?
RB – In closing, what will be the fate of black America after the next election and in the years to come? Will there be a realization they’ve been used by the Democratic community as Lyndon Johnson said? Or will they and all America wake up to the fact that we’ve all been duped for government’s illicit purposes?
