Sadly, the Obama administration's failure to punish King Samir Shabazz for intimidating white voters has now encouraged even greater expressions of violence against white people.
As a victim of affirmative action, I know exactly what it is like to be the focus of the hatred of the black community simply because of my race and sex. The way I was treated by affirmative action in California in the 1990s is now illegal. What is dangerous is too look the other way and go into denial about the dangerousness and seriousness of this kind of black racism.
We should learn enough from history that people who talk this way are only moments away from taking action on their heartfelt beliefs.
The YouTube video above is a partial indication of how Attorney General Eric Holder's decision was interpreted by the leaderhship of the New Black Panther party. The joking and laughing remind me of Hitler making fun of the Jews. King Samir Shabazz was, of course, caught on YouTube advocating the murder of whites and their children. We would be foolish not to be alarmed at a government that doesn't take these threats into account when enforcing the law. We should be all the more cautious given the reputation of the liberal left for leading the mass murder of millions of people in the 20th century - people who did not buy into their Marxist socialist agenda.
