Al Sharpton thinks he’s a motivational speaker. And he is. He’s spent the last 50 years motivating young blacks into careers of crime and welfare.
And then there’s Eric Thomas. He actually cares about those same kids and wants to give them a hand out of the ghetto. Sharpton and Obama want to keep them there, killing one another. #BlackLivesMatter don’t you know.
Here’s Thomas at a St. Louis school. He came there, free of charge, to motivate the kids and they gave him s*it. This is a great response.
Thomas made the point that he often visits schools, but that is only when he ‘comes home’ to black schools that he is disappointed with the way he is treated.
‘You got the nerve to act the fool when somebody cares about you? You’re talking when I’m talking,’ he said.
‘Do you know that if I go to a Jewish school, those kids are quiet. If I go to a white school, those kids are quiet. If I go to a Latino school, those kids are quiet. The only kids that disrespect me are black kids.
‘That’s it, my own, are the only ones who disrespect me. I work in any other school and they’re taking notes. I come home, you’re talking. You’re capping jokes. You think something is funny. Look how we’re living. Ain’t nothing funny. Ain’t nothing funny y’all.’
Thomas has a powerful message for these kids – for all kids – but especially for these kids. But he’s not Rev. Al or Rev. Jesse. Or Barack. Thomas expects these kids to work hard. The Revs expect them to lay back, loaf, and go to prison. That seems to be a better message for this particular community.
