The party of Black America is so lacking of significant platform for the 2016 elections that the prospects for retaining the presidency is being threatened by their own disinterested constituency.
Realizing their dire electoral straights, they are summoning a page from their old political playbook. Well versed in community organizing (inciting the ignorant to violence for political gain,) President Obama has done nothing to quell the rioting in Baltimore just as he had done nothing to quell the violence in Ferguson. One has to ask why?
Whether Malik Shabazz operated on his own (doubtful,) under orders from someone in the Obama administration, or in consort with Rawlings-Blake matters little. No direct link need be established. The way it was allowed to play out is enough.
The problem for Obama and Rawlings-Blake came in yesterday’s response by the larger community when responsible black people came out in massive numbers to create a human barrier protecting the police from the miscreants. This should serve as proof to level-headed observers that it wasn’t about race.
