Highest Level Of Insult And Hypocrisy

Thursday, January 23, 2014

A few others appear to want to exploit the death of the 13-year-old child as a cover to attack members of the black community. Shame on them. As if they truly care. 

I recognize some of them and I can assure you they've never had any kind words to say about anyone in the black community.

This child would have been on that list too.Their words and impression of the black community have been nothing but demeaning, insulting, derogatory. They are a pitiful bunch, and notably operate in groups. When one appears another is soon to do a followup, like a cheerleading squad, to give the appearance of numbers when they're actually one operating in numbers. They are of  the highest level of hypocrisy. 

Instead of using this tragedy, among many, to attack, why not take time to listen and learn?Learn why the black community feels the way it does. Learn why many in the black community feel authority has played a direct and indirect role in many of the problems these struggling communities are struggling and dealing with. 

Start with: September 03, 2012  The New Yorker/Title: " TheThrowaways-Pawns in the War on Drugs." 

These are and have not been isolated incidents. They're quite the norm...along with their collateral damage and other grief that's a guaranteed part of the package.

I am writing in reply to Roy Exum's opinion piece from March 21, entitled "Bring the Bees Back."

Red Bank Stays Unbeaten With Romp Over Hixson

Mandi Munn has been around a lot of Red Bank softball in her life, both as a player and now as the head coach for the Lionettes, but she probably hasn’t been involved with many games like the one her team played at home Tuesday afternoon. Facing the Hixson Lady Wildcats in a District 6-AA contest, the Lionettes more than batted around in three of their four at-bats and they took ... (click for more)
