The thing that I don't understand is this: why do all of the "black community leaders" stay quiet on such issues?
The new black panthers claim to speak for black people, while I know they don't speak for all black people, where are the black groups, and people
like Jessie Jackson standing up and saying "NO, I do NOT support these people, and they do NOT represent black people or black culture"
Whenever there is a white person saying/doing anything that doesn't benefit blacks, you get a bunch of black groups and spokespersons up in arms, all
over the news calling for blood and freaking out.
But when a black person, or a black group does something that is bad for black people's culture, image, health, etc all of these groups are strangely
silent. You'd think a group that has the interests of its people at heart would try to maintain a good image of positivity, intelligence, peace, and
I have the same issue with Muslim groups. I'll agree that not all Muslims are extremists, or terrorists. Far from it, I believe the vast majority are
normal, good people. But I just cannot understand why popular Muslim leaders or groups don't stand up and DISTANCE themselves from the acts of their
lesser peers. Condemn the actions of the few instead of remaining silent and allowing people to form negative opinions about their group.
