WHY and can anyone care to answer this (especially the powers that be) or comment on this. In the last several years there has been such an outpouring from liberals to elected officials on the treatment of Muslims (and rightly so) in this country, BUT many black people, especially African-Americans, have not been treated as they should for decades (from others and local politicians in black communities due to their inaction) and it still continues to this day, yet that seems to be the status quo and normal, just like the poor conditions in Jamaica with many black communities.
So why such preferential treatment towards one group (Muslims) but not for a group of people (African-Americans) who have been in this country since the beginning of time. If you think that is not the case, speak to any African-American and listen to their thoughts on this issue. Now I know there are many black Muslims, but I am talking about the glaring treatment of Muslims period and the treatment of non-Muslim African-Americans, who make up more of the black population in this country.
I hear our BLACK local elected officials always talking about the Muslim issue, yet rarely do I hear them talking about the AFRICAN-AMERICAN issue and the conditions in the black communities in Jamaica. Let’s face it this treatment is nothing new in this country, it has been going on since the beginning of time with African-Americans in this country, BUT now it seems there is a new flavor of the month and as usual African-Americans are being pushed to the proverbial back of the bus yet again.
Something is wrong with this picture and it is rarely brought up and a good topic for Black History Month. NOW of course I am not talking about each individuals action that they are totally responsible, that is, behavior, being responsible for your own actions and your actions dictate your course in life. I am talking about how many African-Americans are viewed by others.
