‘Weeds’ Actor Calls On Fellow Blacks To Reject MSM, Race Pundits Over Zimmerman Meltdown

July 22, 2013 by  

Sometimes it’s best to step back and let someone with something good to say have as wide an audience as possible.

That’s why we’re pointing you to a guest column at the Huffington Post, in which “Weeds” actor Romany Malco, who is black, breaks rank with race-baiting black “leaders” who’ve co-opted the Martin/Zimmerman case and, in so doing, perverted the spirit of the (largely successful) Civil Rights movement. He even uses Rahm Emanuel’s own words to illustrate that very point.

Malco slams the mainstream media, questions the motives of black figureheads and news agencies, and points the finger of blame for misplaced racial outraged directly where it belongs: on the self-destruction of the black community, starting with the individual and the family.

Here’s a snippet:

To be brutally honest, the only reason people are even aware of Trayvon Martin is because it became a topic within mainstream news and pop culture. Meaning: News directors saw it as a profitable, sensational story. Hundreds of blacks die annually in South Side Chicago without even a blurb. Trayvon isn’t in the mainstream news for any reason other than ratings and profit.

…Don’t you find it peculiar that the same media outlets who have worked so diligently to galvanize the negative stigmas of black men in America are now airing open debates on improving the image of black males in American media? Do you honestly think CNN is using their competitive time slots for philanthropy?

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” – Rahm Emanuel

If we really wanted to ensure Trayvon Martin’s killing was not in vain, we’d stop perpetuating negative images that are now synonymous with black men in America.

…We’d spend less time subconsciously repeating lyrics about death and murder and more time understanding why we are so willing to twerk to songs that demean women and boast of having things we cannot afford…We’d seek information outside the corporate owned-media that manipulates us.

There’s much more. The piece holds up a mirror to anyone, from any walk of life in America, who’s willing to take an honest look. Read the rest at HuffPo, and share.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
