Presidential candidate Ben Carson has already been labeled as being one of those out-of-touch “Uncle Tom” Republicans just because his views are not in-line with those “true blacks” likes Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who supposedly speak for the entire Black community.Former NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar-someone I grew up watching play for my beloved Lakers-is one of those black racist folks that says that Carson’s policies “don’t make sense.”
Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Abdul-Jabbar spoke about how feels Carson’s policies are not good for America, and how his is not ready to be president.
How could Carson’s policies, which are based on Judeo-Christian beliefs, American exceptionalism and individual responsibility, not make any sense for our country?
Wait, is it because Abdul-Jabbar is Muslim, and not a Christian, that he thinks this way?
First of all, Abdul-Jabbar has been an outspoken race-baiter and Democrat for many moons, and does not shy away from espousing divisive and racist rhetoric.Wait, his upcoming autobiography/documentary is titled “Minority of One.”
Here are statements he made in a opinion piece he wrote for Time magazine.
- If you’ve ever said, “I don’t care if you’re white, black, yellow or purple,” you might be a racist
- Polls show that more whites believe in ghosts than believe racism is a problem in America. I guess that’s why Ghost Hunters is so popular but my show, Racist Wranglers, never got picked up. Maybe the reason is how we define racism.
- To their family, closest friends and adoring pets, they’re just plain-speaking Americans who have probably said the phrase, “I don’t care if you’re white, black, yellow or purple.” (FYI: You might be a racist if you’ve used that phrase.)
And then there is this gem of a remark:
- How about the U.S. Supreme Court, you skeptical naysayers. The Justices (all wearing black gospel robes in support of racial equality) …”
This has got to be one of the most asinine statements I have ever heard. Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor once wrote a op-ed in Smithsonian.com telling why she and other judges dating back to the 18th century wear black robes on the bench.
Sorry Kareem, Justices don’t wear black robes “in support of racial equality.”Ben Carson shouldn’t feel alone when race-baiters like Abdul-Jabbar and Al Sharpton call him, or his policies out for not being “black enough.”
Carson joins that elite class of “not-so-black” Americans, which include Rep. Allen West, Justice Clarence Thomas, and Condoleezza Rice, that have been singled out by the true racist element within the United States of America.
