If you are a young black person living in America, who are your heroes? Not George Washington Carver, Booker T Washington, nor Clarence Thomas. It isn't even Bill Cosby, Magic Johnson, or Muhammad Ali. It is some rapper wearing his pants around his hips and mouthing trash about "ho's", rape, and about every perversion you can imagine. Heck, most black kids don't even want to be the Post-turtle in Chief (POTUS). He got the black vote to stick a finger in the eye of the white candidate.
People like Sharpton, Jackson, and virtually every NAACP President ignore this, the violence that is caused by young black men on the streets, and the fact that they committed the crime so should do the time.
