The crowd on the couch pulled it off once again. They found a Black Minister, Minister Johnathan Gentry, to blame the conduct and attitude of the Black community for the recent tragedy of Mike Brown being gunned down, unarmed by Officer Darren Wilson. Gentry is fed up with the way all these Black folks aren't more obedient and naturally, this is what they get.
By saying things like, It's sickening. Black people are so uptight. Let's change our ways, Gentry manages to blame police brutality upon the conduct of people when they are disproportionately stopped for no reason by police. Gentry speaks fondly of the times he's been pulled over, because, let's face facts, he's a Black man with a very custom, tricked-out car. He also quotes to back up his opinion.
Steve Doocy asks, 'What do you think of the President speaking from Martha's Vineyard?' They play a clip of President Obama's press conference where he asks for more transparency and openness. The minister says the President should have, first and foremost, talked about the "war zone" in Chicago from whence he came. Why this? It's just PR in his mind.
Doocy is in full agreement. Gentry acquiesces that the fact you're pulled over because you're black is no big deal. Mike Brown and Dorian Johnson merely responded incorrectly. They refused to listen to police instruction.
It's an ego thing, it's a competition and it doesn't help.
He has unending sympathy for the poor police. They have a tough job. Black people basically should stop being so....black.
Wow, just wow. I believe he makes Clarence Thomas look like Malcolm X. Gentry will most assuredly be the next featured speaker after Dr. Ben Carson at next years' CPAC.
