“OPEN WOUND” IN MINNEAPOLIS

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 1, 2020

         JOE BIDEN COMMENTED ON THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD CAUSED BY A MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER.

            IN A VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER, BIDEN SAID, THE COUNTRY MUST ADDRESS “THE OLDER AND DEEPER” PROBLEM OF POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST MINORITIES TO HEAL THE “OPEN WOUND” CAUSED BY FLOYD’S DEATH.

         WASN’T BARACK OBAMA, AMERICA’S FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, SUPPOSED TO HEAL THOSE WOUNDS? BIDEN WAS PART OF THAT ADMINISTRATION. WE HAVE BEEN HEARING THIS STUFF FOR SIXTY YEARS. CONGRESS INSTITUTED THE WELFARE SYSTEM, PAID MOSTLY MINORITY GIRLS WHO HAD BABIES OUT OF WEDLOCK, PASSED CIVIL RIGHTS, VOTING RIGHTS AND FAIR HOUSING LEGISLATION, CREATED A CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION WITHIN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. BUT CONGRESS STILL REFUSES TO ALLOW POOR AND MINORITY KIDS TO ESCAPE FAILING PUBLIC SCHOOLS, WHICH IS A MAJOR IMPEDIMENT TO SUCCESS.

         THE MEDIA RARELY DO STORIES ON SUCCESSFUL AFRICAN-AMERICANS AND HOW THEY OVERCAME OBSTACLES. OTHERS FEED MINORITIES NEGATIVE INFORMATION THEY INTERNALIZE AND REPEAT THE CYCLES WE ALL DEPLORE. BURNING BUILDINGS AND RIOTING CHANGES NOTHING. CHANGING HEARTS WITH THE GOSPEL DOES. I’M CAL THOMAS.
