Madison’s leaders: profiles in racial cowardice
(page 2 of 2)
Schneider points out that Paul Ryan proposed an opportunity society — but gets hooted down by the reactionaries of the Democratic Party, wedded as it is to cultivating the victim plantation.
Can anyone say that redistribution is working? Aren’t we all responsible for our own conduct? Aren’t you tired of the victim culture? Who is helped by a double standard of behavior? (We all got into trouble at the age of 19, said the uncle. We all committed felonious armed robbery?) Who is helped by the liberal playbook? Not Tony Robinson.
Fancying himself the big-screen drug kingpin Tony Montana, young Robinson would describe himself as a ‘real n***a from the start till the casket shut,” according to this source. Those are symptoms of dysfunction crying for intervention. But keep the police out of “our neighborhoods,” say demagogues like Brandi Grayson. Empty the jails, says Young and Foolish.
And the local editorialists — profiles in cowardice, victims of liberal Stockholm syndrome — keep their silence.
The culture promulgated by Al Sharpton and Paul Soglin is diseased. If your humble squire lacks the requisite melanin to be credible, then turn to Jason Riley of the Wall Street Journal: “Faulting ghetto culture for ghetto outcomes remains largely taboo among those who have turned bad behavior into a symbol of racial authenticity.”
Your reading assignment and mine is Riley’s new book, Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed.
