It's been a while since my last entry - lots going on, but I had to take a break. Here's our latest effort - written and performed by Jack Simmons... edited and directed by your favorite ex-leftie... let me know what you think.

“I know, Officer - you jus’ stopping’ me ‘cause I’m BLAAACK!”
Cops hear it every day, and although millions of hours and tax dollars are wasted each year to disprove false allegations, many blacks (and guilt-ridden whites) consider the non-existence of racial profiling as proof of an institutional cover-up that corroborates its existence.
Who needs more proof than that?
Trial lawyer Merrick Bobb, who faked portions of the Christopher Commission Report, blames “… the impossibly high burden of proof…” for the exoneration of the falsely accused. While Bobb rejects the value of evidence, he ignores facts that show officers stopping blacks and Latinos at rates that are consistent with (or lower than) high Latino and black crime statistics.
How many innocent white people does he think the LAPD should shake down before LA cops can question these suspects? Because they are overwhelmingly black and Latino, Bobb says these “patterns demand a response” without explaining that taxpayers will waste millions more on trial lawyers like himself who profit from these mythologies.
While most Americans easily dismiss Bobb and Mack's arguments, we had no idea that millions of black Americans actually believe that our “genocidal government” created the AIDS virus in a laboratory to control black populations – or where such rumors came from – until Barak Obama introduced us to his “spiritual advisor”. Because police officers are the most prominent representatives of America’s “oppressive government,” it’s hard for some criminal suspects to not defend their bad behavior by initiating false complaints when arrested.
Cops who tire of the physical and political risks that come with stopping black suspects often move to safer (and more appreciative) neighborhoods. While those who serve within LA’s toughest areas are rewarded spiritually, they also risk being labeled as problem officers after their third false complaint. And if that complaint arrives during his third year of service, he may spend the next 27 doing everything he can to avoid criminals who might make a fourth.
While frustrated rookies call these officers drones, trial lawyers like Bobb insist that benchwarmers who generate no complaints make better cops than those who foul out after four quarters of triple-doubles. After a while, cops ask themselves why they don't simply ignore black criminals: The pay’s the same so why take unnecessary risks?
False allegations don’t hurt cops as much as the communities they try to serve. Some officers learn to avoid contact with black suspects, leaving vulnerable black communities to deal with them alone, unarmed and undefended. Crime and neglect further strain and dispirit these neighborhoods, where locals congregate on Sunday mornings to hear preachers blame white people (e.g., Republicans) for their sorrows.
Forty years after Daniel Moynihan (D-NY) convinced Americans to pay single black girls to have fatherless babies, his neglected offspring continues to join gangs while “locked down” inside Democrat-controlled public schools. After decades of neglect and disillusionment, some seek spiritual comfort. If lucky, they find someone like Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. If not, someone like Rev. Jeremiah Wright finds them.
Celebrated by Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) in 2005, black theology requires pastors to convince their congregants that black people “must struggle daily under the burden of white oppression.” Democrats rely on activists like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and Jeremiah Wright to spread this message to foment racial disharmony and distrust to control the black vote. Few Americans considered that until now.
For more than three decades, Jeremiah Wright screamed FIRE in his crowded theater. But when America’s magical Negro introduced us to his spiritual advisor, even liberal Democrats choked on the hypocrisy. Wright backtracked a little at the National Press Club, blunting his government-AIDS fable with a vaguer US Government “is capable of anything.”
After years of sermons that routinely violated the Third and Ninth Commandments before thousands of susceptive parishioners, Wright’s theological and political peers are now expressing frustration not because of Wright’s abhorrent performances, but because of his willingness to enunciate his unrepentant bigotry days before the upcoming primaries. Wright tried to wrap himself in the skirts of “the black church” and found that embarrassed blacks were unwilling to defend him. Guilt-ridden whites are apparently not THAT guilty.
Pastor John of LA’s First AME Church was not hurt or disgusted by Wright’s sermons, but that “one of the most historic political campaigns in the nation's history could be derailed by this pastor who has been needlessly callous, careless and insensitive in his remarks” – implying that they are true and would’ve been okay AFTER Barak Obama’s undeserved election.
Now that Jeremiah Wright has shown us the inside of black theology churches and how he ignores black-on-black crime to sell bottles of white-on-black racism, it’s easier to understand where someone like LAPD Police Commissioner John Mack and Merrick Bobb would hear that white LA cops routinely engage in racial profiling - Mack attends the First AME Church.
Because Mack is a major player in LA’s racial politics, we can assume that he’s not subject to customary delusions of his co-parishioners. If so, it’s hard to imagine why he would deliberately spread false tales to his vulnerable constituents – unless to destabilize and influence his constituents in support of LA’s other corrupt political leaders – and trial lawyers like Bobb who profit from these beliefs.
In this effort, Mack and his peers are not unlike the Negro foremen who once managed field slaves or Klansmen who managed their progeny. Mack was flummoxed not by the non-existence of racial profiling within the LAPD, but by the fact that he might one day be forced to admit that he, like Barak Obama, has been drinking too deeply from the witches’ brew of black theology.
