Pit Bulls in the Pulpit


For years I have wanted to be in a discussion with Rev. Jackson or Rev. Al Sharpton and ask them simply to remove the Reverend from their titles. Considering the fact that I rarely hear anything uttered from either that deserve reverence.  I tried in my best Christian front to forgive or look past their comments to find a sacrosanct core of their message.  It never really materialized.

I have labeled them as pagan pot stirrers or pious politicians.  Like a couple of old witches stirring the cauldron of racism.  We don’t have to look far to see the inequities of color in the legal  and justice system in America. We don’t have to discount the corporate attitude. We understand the design of affirmative action and it’s grand intent.  This is a country who has come of age with racism, bigotry and religious intolerance. It’s not singular.

Every verdict that comes down the pike as in the Queen’s Bachelor Party tragedy is made theatre for the Reverends to bombasticize the racial motivation and travesty of the decision. In fact, the duo will inevitably agree to a racial miscarriage of justice on any decision that does not vindicate a black man.  Not a Hispanic, Asian or Caucasian.

What was their feeling on the Knoxville Murders Jan 2007 – Newsom and Christian, twenty year old white couple who were carjacked and murdered over a period of four days which included genitalia and breast mutilation while living, gang rape, poisoned by bleach, shot and burned. The defendants, five blacks, one a woman.

I am not sure why the media hushed this story. Oh yeah I remember now. They were afraid of white supremacy groups getting all up in arms and creating a lot of public outrage, emotion and hatred.   Just like the Reverends when they get involved in these occurrences.  Does that make them kind of the counterpart to the white supremacists?  Do Jackson and  Sharpton become an extension to the Farrakhan or Black Angel counterpart?   I suppose that if they are they should just remove the Rev. from their titles.  If not, they should share their divinity for all, step far and high above the fray and let the cauldron cool.

Reverend Wright should watch closely he doesn’t get burned stirring that same pot.
