The former Lew Alcindor, now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a wealthy black Muslim is on a rampage to make sure American blacks stay on the plantation.
Kareem is insulted that Dr. Ben Carson is running for President. Actually, I think he’s insulted that Carson is doing well in the polls. In a recent Time editorial he had this to say.
“Ben Carson chose to run for president of the U.S., and that’s bad for African-Americans.”
Writing without any sense of irony regarding President Barack Obama’s many instances of leading from behind, Jabbar writes that a Carson presidency “would definitely not be good for African Americans to have a president who flounders helplessly in office because it would perpetuate the stereotype that blacks can’t be effective CEOs, quarterbacks and leaders.”
Hey Kareem! You been living in a cave for the past eight years? Just what in the world you say the current resident of the Oval Office has been doing. “Floundering” is a good day for President Obumble.
Here’s how out of touch A-J is with the reality of life. He actually had some good things to say about Carson.
Abdul-Jabbar first concedes that Carson “is good for African Americans in that he is a deeply moral man who has done much good as a physician and now wants to upsize his good-doing on a national and global scale” and acknowledges that Carson’s “success story is the stuff the American Dream is made of and is motivation for others to follow his path.”
“His accomplishments as a medical doctor are admirable and serve as an inspiration for young black men and women seeking a career in science. His measured, even groggy demeanor, commands attention and respect,” he writes.
All that yet he’d be a lousy President. Can you imagine a black “leader” encouraging the “black community” to get off welfare, get an education, and get a good job? Or someone who would hold men of all races accountable for being responsible husbands and fathers? Someone who would refuse to cater to the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or the New Black Panther Party?
A-J is dead set against a Ben Carson Presidency. Carson stands against all the things that have destroyed the black community and he has the courage to stand in favor of the things that would raise the black community out of the government plantation’s gutter. A-J wants to keep his people under foot. They’re easier to deal with that way. Just ask any Democrat politician who’s been counting on blacks staying bought.
The really upsetting thing to all these people is that Ben Carson is polling at 13% among blacks and those kinds of number will destroy the Democratic Party.
Go Ben Go!
