This Week, Business Is Booming In The Race Hustling Industry
Every once in a while the Reverend Jessie Jackson will crawl from under his rock, and hawk his race-based grievances. Nobody knows if he works, but he has built quite an racket (or empire) because a lot of people like the way he spiels.
Then there's the always available Reverend Al Sharpton, shooting off his big reckless mouth. So what if he causes a few storefront firebombings and destroys a few reputations along the way?
I am seeing some revolting things on the horizon, and it's where race-hustling, grief, and exploitation of tragedy intersect. I sense that Trayvon will probably become a brandname, as commercialized as Che. His own Mom is trying to trademark her dead son's name, but the hucksters better make their money fast, because this story is starting to unravel like the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case.
The Black Panthers have introduced a 'Wanted: George Zimmerman" poster. I wonder if you can purchase one at The Black Panthers Boutique, down at the mall. I just hope that these idiots don't start a race riot.
Since the Trayvon Martin story exploded all over the news, we see many people wearing hoodies in solidarity with the 17-year-old. I wonder when Jay-Z will roll out a new line of hoodies, with a Trayvon Martin label.
What's next? Are they going to use Trayvon in a Skittles commercial? I wonder who will play him in the Made For TV Movie.
You also have Obama operatives exploiting this tragedy to help their boss. Case in point: The crass soullessness of political advisor/ MSNBC guest host Karen Finney, as she blames the shooting on those racist Republicans. Meanwhile, Obama has done nothing but fan the flames of racial strife.
I think that I'm like most Americans. I would just like to know the truth of what happened between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, with a little less exploitation, if you don't mind.
