Not that I care, mind you. Despite the strike having been on every TV news channel, every radio station news, I saw here in Omaha.
I would like you New Yawkers to know I expect the same treatment if our buses stop.
(You can stop laughing now.)
Anyhow. The reason I bring this up is that I discovered Stanley Crouch, columnist for the Daily News. He has useful things to say about the invocation of Rosa Parks for a rather greedy union action. He throws in this bit here that will make someone wince:
At the worst end, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and Sharpton joined Snoop Dogg and other celebrities with brains no larger than mustard seeds in mourning at the funeral of executed murderer and Crips founder Stanley (Tookie) Williams.
Given the rhetoric and the crocodile tears, one would have thought Williams was one of the four little girls blown to bits in 1963 at Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala.
Since Sharpton, along with Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox, diminished the meaning of the word “racism” in an attempt to defend the Tawana Brawley fraud against criticism, this is not an innocent blunder for our local rabble-rouser.
What he said.
