Rebuilding the Man

Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:

What would you do?

What would you do if you were black?

Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.

To the first: Most of us would take our families out of that city quickly to protect them from danger. Then, able-bodied men would return to help others in need, as wives and others cared for children, elderly, infirm and the like.

For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, then you'll probably wait for the government to save you.

This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.

No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.

President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves.

All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral poverty - not their material poverty - that cost them dearly in New Orleans.

Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be repudiated - they will only perpetuate this problem by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption. New Orleans, to the extent it is to be rebuilt, should be remade into a dependency-free, morally strong city where corruption is opposed and success is applauded. Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so.

I'm encouraged by those like Rev. Peterson who are broadcasting the truth about some of the so-called black leadership in America.

Without the black population under the thumbs of the likes of Jesse Jackson, et al, these hustlers would not have a way to make the kind of living they've been making on the backs of those who don't understand the truth. And on the backs of those who don't take the time to find out what the truth is!

From what I read from history, the Jesse Jackson's of today are a far cry from Martin Luther King of yesterday.

The old saying, "The good die young" ("young" being a relative term, I think) becomes more true to me as I grow older. Many times it is because the "bad" will not sit idly by and let the truth be known. I wonder if this saying came to be after the death of Jesus Christ at the age of 33?
