I fail to understand the narrow view… the lens
used by my ‘Black American‘ Brothers and Sisters…
in the need to down play what Carson said, when
he compared Obamacare to slavery, the Misters
of media now decry… but not to long ago, MLK Jr.
referenced abortion to slavery of culture and heritage,
so where is the fulcrum to be placed here… to be
understood by one and all, are we still in a birdcage
of thought or should we find we can still sing at all?
Maya Angelou said she knew why the caged bird sings,
it seems we need to find out what she meant from her
heart… from Martin‘s heart, not just one of those things
one can hold on to forever and (yet) claim to be free,
Yes… freedom comes with a cost but not when one‘s
views are not listened to… how it looks/sounds to me.
To think (currently… as some journalists would lead us to believe) there should be outrage over what Carson said, comparing ‘Obamacare’ and slavery together, and not think one thing about the origins of ‘Planned Parenthood’ and specific goals implied! I guess there is a vacuum to thought… to memory or to exposure of our history, some conveniently used and some left unspeakable- this does nothing but sweep it under the rug… white-washing it [for lack of a better term]. Even ‘Planned Parenthood‘ had at its own beginnings eugenics, to be used to cull the masses of those thought unworthy, and the proof is found here for the looking. You think Halloween is scary… I say believing half-truths and innuendo is far worse than Halloween itself. If you say you value heritage at all, I would recommend reading an article by Clenard Childress… before you set your heart and mind in stone. Since under ‘Obamacare’ we must be forced to support Planned Parenthood… I don’t think Carson is to far off base.
