A Sad Ending

Debbie Schlussel, the beautiful and conservative blogger from D-town, reports on the funeral of Rosa Parks, the civil rights legend. As she reports, her relatives don’t seem to be endowed with the grace and vision that charactized Ms. Parks. This is evident by the sorry cast of characters that were invited to speak:

Right now, I’m listening to Louis Walcott a/k/a Louis X a/k/a Louis Farrakhan. Why is this racist loon a prominent speaker at this woman’s funeral? If he had it his way, Catholics and other Christians, Jews, Whites, Asians, Gays, Arabs, and anyone not Black Muslim would not be riding in the back of the bus. They’d be DEAD.

And there’s more:

Then there’s Jesse “Hymietown” Jackson and Weird Al “Mass Murder at Freddie’s Fashion Mart” Sharpton. Thankfully, I missed their speeches. I’m sure they were par for the course.

Through her courage, Rosa Parks fought a corrupt and shameful system that refused to see people as individuals but insisted upon classifying people based solely on the color of their skin. The early civil rights movement, culminating with Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech in 1963, was beautiful because of the simplicity of its message: we should be identified and judged by our character and merit and not by the arbitrary color of our skin.

Unfortunately, today’s civil rights “leaders” long ago sacrificed that vision at the altar of group identity and entitlement. Where does this flawed approach ultimately lead? To a scary place where a black man who thinks for himself and refuses to play this cynical game is referred to as “Uncle Tom” and worse. Here’s the proof. Despicable.
