The Gospel of Michael Brown
This post is similar to my post: The Gospel of Trayvon Martin http://wp.me/pPnn7-2ov
The Black community has, yet again, chosen a poor cause upon which to hang their hopes: Michael Brown who, by unbiased accounts, appears to have been little else than a dangerous punk thug.
The same can be said for Trayvon Martin and the black community’s poor choice of him, another punk thug, and his cause, upon which they hung their hopes.
When will black leaders and the black community demand the truth be told about the MURDER of a real martyr and hero of the black community and of America: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whom the US government sponsored the MURDER thereof ?
When will they demand justice for a good man upon whom they can rightly place their hopes? When?
“According to a Memphis jury’s verdict on December 8, 1999, in the wrongful death lawsuit of the King family versus Loyd Jowers “and other unknown co-conspirators,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated by a conspiracy that included agencies of his own government. Almost 32 years after King’s murder at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis on April 4, 1968, a court extended the circle of responsibility for the assassination beyond the late scapegoat James Earl Ray to the United States government…”

And what about Miriam Carey? The black woman who was shot in the back 5 times by the US Capitol Police? Where’s is the outrage from black leaders and the black community about her murder by police?
Is there no outrage because she wasn’t a black teenage male punk thug? I hate to think this is the case, but what other reason can there be?
