The Borking Of Bill Bennett

Larry Elder from Townhall.com has a great piece (The Borking Of Bill Bennett) about Bill Bennett’s remarks. You all remember the remarks, you just don’t know them all because the liberal media and the liberal blogs quoted only part of what he said. They took it apart and made it appear he said something he did not. Mr. Elder clears it up. And in case any of you figure he is part of the good ole’ white boy network, Elder is a black man. He should be a leader in the black community and get rid or Jackson, Sharpton and the rest of the race baiters. Here is part of what he wrote:

How does one artfully say that out of a small percentage of America’s population — 13 percent — blacks account for 37.2 percent of all those arrested for violent crimes, 54.4 percent of all robbery arrestees, and are the known offenders in 51.3 percent of all murders? The murder rate in the city of New Orleans stands at over 7.5 times the national average, and authorities convict only one in four arrested for homicide.

Speaking of “inartful,” back in 1993, a noted civil rights leader made the following comment: “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery — then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” The speaker? Jesse Jackson.

    You requested him so his name will appear. We are fair here.

    Whether he makes it to JOTM will depend on the votes but he will be on the ballot
