Haters Of Color

During his most famous speech, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” I wonder what Dr. King would be saying today?

I’ve just read one of the most truly disturbing, ugly commentaries ever. Again, black people are the only demographic group in America not allowed a diversity of thought. One does so at one’s own peril.

Most Blacks see both Obama’s election, and leadership, not only as a tremendous source of pride, but an extraordinary example of excellence and achievement that all African-Americans, especially young people, should follow.

But not every Black leader is as fond or as proud of the new president as the NAACP and the American people are.

In fact, there are a number Black “leaders,” who span the spectrum of religion, politics and gender, who expressed during the presidential campaign, and many who continue to expound today, assessments of President Obama that range from philosophical annoyance, to petty envy, and even, in at least one case, absolute hatred.

The campaign tactic of labeling any and all opposition to Barack Obama as “hate” has now come full circle.
