At long last the voice of reason about Don Imus and the reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. It's random guy I've never heard of, but it's nice to know I'm not completely alone. Meet Jason Whitlock, Kansas City Star columnist, who isn't afraid to state the obvious:
"We keep deluding ourselves and getting caught up in distractions that have nothing at all to do with what is setting back, holding black people back and it's our own self-hatred. Don Imus is irrelevant to what is going on with black people. Don Imus is no threat to us. Don Imus will not shoot one of us in the street. He will not impregnate our daughter or our sister and abandon that kid and that woman."
"Two ministers, who have needed forgiveness in their own life, don't have the moral integrity to give this man the forgiveness he has asked for in a sincere fashion."
"They go around the country starting fires, dividing people and then start picking everyone's pocket. You never see them go back and apologize for the messes they make ... They're terrorists."
WTF is wrong with Tucker Carlson that he has to ask if Sharpton and Jackson are connected to this story?
