I have great respect for people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for representing the black race when we face racism and unfair treatment due to them. But I can't help but wonder why they rarely seem to mention all the blacks who look down on education, or commit crimes, or commit hate crimes themselves. It seems like the message they're saying is blacks don't deserve racist treatment from racist criminals, but racists and criminals who are black and commit crimes against whites, asians, and latinos deserve a little more consideration. It just feels like they're reinforcing the stereotype that all blacks do is complain about racism. There are other minorities out there who suffer from it as well and some of the time from us. I don't think we've had a great civil rights figure since MLK who at least spoke up for everyone. Opinions? Disagreements??
