    Political correctness aside, It would have been nice for the truthfulness of these statements to have been explored further. The truth should never be considered racism!

    He spoke the truth....but since there is money involved than it is race-ism.

    imagine that:"He is a racist because he tells the truth on how 'others' exploit his community."

    I'D met Andrew Young TWICE....and both times he
    looked so far down his nose at ME, I'D thought he'd
    need binoculars to see ME. (if he had looked at all.)

    Obviously, I don't like him. I'VE Never liked his politics.
    He has ALWAYS been more far right (republican,) than he
    had ever openly revealed, (hiding behind a democratic label.)

    Some have even suspected he'd had something to do with
    Martin L. King Jr.'s murder (along WITH Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.,)
    though the jury's still 'out' in that matter, some don't need to
    wait for a verdict.

    I don't agree, (from MY humble platform,) he EVER should have
    been at Wal-Mart. Exhibiting the FULL denegration of Black Efforts
    from time immemorial, (which is what sell-out Negroes do.)

    But these 'statements' were the simple truth.
    And here we go again, because ANYBODY protests the truth
    from a Black Mans Mouth, WE must deny OUR OWN
    existentialism to even the detriment of OUR OWN SOULS
    YET AGAIN.

    Now, I don't like andrew young and he may have even
    belived he had excercised a greater diplomacy by withdrawing
    from Wal-Mart and apologizing. However I advocate that he's
    CONTINUED to do the true Black Community a greater disservice

    by rolling over again in the face of this kind of blatant evil,
    than to be a MAN and let even DEATH shake in the presence
    of incorruptable truth.

    ROARIN......

    the jews must have strong armed him...
    young like most of the "so-called" black leaders of today are weak...
    and have a weak foundation to stand on...
    for once it would be nice to see someone say what's on their mind and not back down...
    because it is my assertion that it is impossible for blacks to be racist in this country...

    one love

    now we know where all the "leaders" have gone.
    i'm a little surprised as he could have made the same point by rephrasing his language so as not to call anyone out.
    at his "level" you would expect him to be able to have a command over what comes out his mouth.

    he looks foolish.

    His statements about Jews,Korean and Arabs may be true but sound incredibly dumb coming from a guy who fronts Walmart!!!

    The fact he takes cash from Walmart an organisation not known for it love of black people makes his outburst however true sound idiotic and hypocrtitical.

    And his support for voter identification that helps keep black people from voting is both pathetic and disgusting.
