In a must-read post on NoisyRoom, conservative Lloyd Marcus broke down the problem with pandering to Antifa and Black Lives Matter. As a fellow conservative minority, I appreciate this article and the messages in it. The most striking, to me, is this one:
Is there racism in America? Absolutely, along with every other sin in the heart of man. Is there enough racism to stop anyone from achieving their American Dream? Absolutely not. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for everyone who chooses to go for it. Anything else promoted by fake news media, democrats and Leftist Hollywood is a lie. Pure and simple.
I cringed when I heard fellow black conservatives who I respect on TV saying that while they condemn the violent behavior of Antifa/Black Lives Matter some of their grievances against America are warranted. I wanted to scream at my TV, “Hogwash!”
