Why Al Sharpton’s Role in The Freddy’s Fashion Mart Fire is so Important Today








Nearly 20 year ago, a vile, racist, career thug named Roland James Smith entered a Jewish owned store, named Freddy’s Fashion Mart, on 125th Street in Harlem, pulled a gun, ordered all the black customers out of the store, spilled paint thinner on several bins of clothing, then set them on fire – a blaze that resulted in killing 7 people plus Smith. The only African-American left in the story was Freddy’s security guard Kareem Brunner, 22-years-old, who was ordered to stay by the mass murderer Smith.

In a previous court affidavit, by Kareem Brunner, the black security guard killed in the fire, Mr. Brunner said that he’d been called a “cracker lover” and that “I would get mine as a traitor [to the black race].” Brunner, was the only black that Smith held in the store before setting it on fire.

In court papers filed just the day before the fire, Fred Harari, the owner of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, and two employees described weeks of protests outside the clothing store. They recounted that Al Sharpton’s National Action Network set up picket lines and that customers going into Freddy’s were spat on and cursed at, called “traitors” and “Uncle Toms.” Some protesters shouted, “Burn down the Jew store!” and simulate striking a match. “We’re going to see that this cracker suffers,” said Sharpton’s colleague Morris Powell.

Interestingly enough, it was Al Sharpton who was the actual “interloper,” having lived in Hollis Queens around the time Freddy’s opened in Harlem and living in New Jersey when Freddy’s was burned down. When other white-owned businesses fled the neighborhood as the population became more African-American, Fred Harari the owner of Freddy’s continued to serve that neighborhood.

But it’s the background of that dispute that shows how corrosive a black bigotry that Sharpton and his associates (yes, ALL of his associates) deal in.

According to the Jewish Post; “Ironically, although the picketers had characterized the conflict as a racial, almost all the issues involved were economic - and indirectly caused by federal intervention to improve Harlem! Last year when Harlem was included as part of a new Federal Empowerment Zone, more than $300 million in Federal, state and city funds was slated to flow into Harlem. To prepare for this expansion, the city removed scores of illegal street vendors to side streets, saying they clogged the sidewalks. Morris Powell, head of the 125th Street Vendor's Association, and Roland Smith, one of the street vendors, bitterly opposed the move. Mr. Shange, the owner of the Record Shack, was not involved in the protests - in fact, he had been known to threaten with a machete street vendors who sold bootlegged tapes, saying that they were hurting his business.

“Another effect of the anticipated improvement in Harlem was the dislocation of many long-established stores by landlords looking to replace their tenants whose leases had expired with higher-paying tenants. The property at 276 West 125th Street, next door to Freddy's, was rented for over 30 years by Windsor Drugs, owned by Irving Katz. Mr. Katz, who had a 10-year lease with the United House of Prayer for All People church, was told in July 1993 that his lease would not be renewed and he had to leave in 60 days. The church is a black Pentecostal church based in Washington, and founded by Bishop C. M. ("Sweet Daddy") Grace in the 1920's, is one of the largest landlords on 125th Street.

“The New York Times reported that at first Mr. Katz thought that the decision was racially motivated, since he is white, but that he concluded that "it was just a question of money" since the church had refused to renew the leases for the black-owned Pace shoe-repair shop and a tennis clinic. Mr. Katz said that it's ironic that Mr. Shange went to the Vendor's Association for help since, "Shange was well known to tip over the peddlers' tables and to refuse to let them set up in front of his store." Mr. Katz said Shange's troubles went far beyond his dispute with Freddy's. "The record store across the street, Bobby's Record World [which is black-owned], had been taking away all of his business." Newspaper reports describe Mr. Shange's store as dusty and very poor-looking.

“The church also owns 272 West 125th Street, site of the fire. It recently began a $4.5 million renovation of the building. Mr. Katz said "They were looking to kick out any businesses that were in the way of the renovation, that looked crummy, or that weren't paying as much rent as they felt could be earned. Kentucky Fried Chicken - a high-rent-payer - was forced out so they could build an entrance facing 125th Street. The Jewish-owned meat market lost their lease, and their space was given to Freddy's." Mr. Katz said that "Shange was in our store every day" and had always been outwardly polite. He said that the "real villain here was the church's real-estate broker, Malcolm Barksdale [who is black]. I can imagine how he must have pressured Shange. I was a good tenant. I paid my rent on the first of the month, every month for 30 years. Yet, when Barksdale came to see me about terminating my lease, he was very arrogant and rude. He treated me like ape-s---, and you can quote me on that." (http://www.jewishpost.com/…/massacre-at-freddys-in-harlem-f…)

There are few examples of a more blatant and vile form of race hatred than that.

The FACT is that Al Sharpton and his minions used a landlord-tenant dispute between Malcolm Barksdale, the black Broker/Representative of the owner of that property for the United House of Prayer for All People – a black church, and Sikhulu Shange the black owner of “The Record Shack,” into an attack on a Jewish merchant (Fred Harari), who’d been there longer than most of the other businesses on that block.

The reason why Sharpton’s blatant bigotry is so vital to keep in mind is that it speaks volumes about all the so-called “legitimate” political operatives that have befriended him, from Barack Obama and Bill DeBlasio to Eric Holder and Phil Griffin...the President of MSNBC, NOT the fat, cartoon TV Dad of Family Guy, though they do bear a striking resemblance.

ALL of those so-called “legitimate” associates provide cover for Sharpton’s racial jihad, something they all directly benefit from as Leftist political operatives who use racial strife and grievances to advance increasing political power for themselves and their cronies.

Those who associate with Al Sharpton are as culpable as he is in spreading race hatred.

The WRONG Reaction to Black Bigotry


Nathan Ener (YouTube)
Nathan Ener




While the outrage is understandable in the wake of recent police assassinations, the approach is divisive and destructive.
(http://www.rawstory.com/…/a-thugs-life-dont-matter-texas-r…/)

I also DON'T like the editorializing within such "news" stories. This guy's controversial, even misguided in some of his views, but for a media that NEVER uses the "racist" tag on black racists like Sharpton, Malik Shabazz and others, it has no standing on which to use it for others. It's really just as simple as that.

There's a LOT that separates blacks and whites. The two groups tend to see the world entirely differently, but no two individuals ever view this world the same...so why would we expect entire groups to do so? But WHY exacerbate that?

We've been very good at polarizing and making enemies of each other, a lot less so at reaching out to the other side in trying to figure out solutions, but then again, swinging a hammer, or a sword has always been a lot easier than mapping out uncharted territory.

Now, there are some who'd say that Nathan Ener's call to arms is no different than that of Rashard Turner's of the BlackLivesMatter (BLM) movement, but there's one pretty important difference. Whereas the BLM movement is based entirely upon LIES - more whites are killed by police than blacks and when adjusted for violent crime rates, whites are nearly TWICE as likely to be killed by police as blacks, AND black incarceration rates are entirely due to the disproportionate violent crime rates of that group - Nathan Ener's call is a reaction to very REAL, recent events - the spate of recent police assassinations by deranged followers of the BLM narrative.

The problems with Mr. Ener's approach is (1) it is lawless and as such undermines ALL respect for the rule of law and (2) it buys into that "US vs THEM" viewpoint that makes enemies of everyone in that "other" group, no matter how good, decent or productive they might be. THAT'S a BIG problem.

While ALL of this is troubling, Nathan Ener is NO MORE "racist" nor even "troubling" than those, like Rashard Turner, in the Black Lives Matter movement...but NO LESS, either.

America's Newest Nazis...


Indexed Finger on AR





In the past, most of America's hardcore hate groups were mostly "goober creations," neo-nazis, skinheads and KKKers, but today that's all changing, thanks to groups like the New Black Panther Party, the Black Israelites, among others. (http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/08/31/armed-black-panthers-to-texas-cops-we-will-start-creeping-up-on-you-in-the-darkness/)

All it proves is just as sure as there are white goobers, there are black goobers, as well.

The Criminal Justice system has always come down hard on the neo-nazis and skinheads (and for good reason), so there’s certainly no reason to let up now, just because today's nazis look a little different.

The Problem With Racializing Events


Image result for Black Lives MatterImage result for Black Lives Matter
America's National Media Plays Along....With the BIG LIE





Some events very much ARE racial/ethnic in nature, but many others are not, but it’s easy to racialize even non-racial events because race/ethnicity is easy to see, while ideology isn’t.

For instance, the “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) movement grew out of, what appears to be a wrongheaded, view that police shoot and kill more black people than members of any other ethnic group.

That turns out to be false.

It turns out that despite the widely held view that black Americans are systemically targeted by the police, analysis shows that more white people die at the hands of law enforcement officers than any other race.

Peter Moskos, an assistant professor at New York City University’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, has concluded that during the period ranging from May 2013 to April of 2015 roughly 49% of those killed by LEOs were white, while only 30% were black.

The stats are even more glaring when such deaths are adjusted for the homicide rates. Then data shows that whites are 1.7 times more likely than blacks die at the hands of police,” Moskos said.

Moskos added, “Adjusted for the racial disparity at which police are feloniously killed, whites are 1.3 times more likely than blacks to die at the hands of police.” (http://www.thefederalistpapers.org/us/study-more-whites-killed-by-police-than-blacks)

It’s easy to see why the radicalized BLM movement would be seen as representing black America, even though they clearly do not.  The faces of that movement are indeed black, the areas in which they organize are predominantly black and all of us, in school are taught to generalize from the local to the global, from the specific to the more general, predisposing us to such generalizations socially, as well.

While it turns out that the BLM movement very much DOES represent a specific sub-set of African-Americans, it is also a sub-set that has been grossly overlooked by Americans who’ve too often subsumed them into the larger black community, which is highly unfortunate, because it gives such radicalized groups the perceived cover of representing larger “group grievances,” when they, in fact, DO NOT.

It’s similar to the mistaken way we view serial killers. When most people think of serial killers they reflexively think of the likes of John Wayne Gacey, Ted Bundy, the “BTK killer” (Dennis Rader), Ed Gien, the “Green River Killer” (Gary Ridgway), Jeffrey Dahmer, etc.

What do ALL those serial killers have in common?

They’re all white.

It turns out that the list of black serial killers is also very long. Including the likes of Matthew Emanuel Macon (Murdered and Raped 5 White Women in Lansing), Shelly Brooks (Murdered 7 prostitutes in Detroit Cass Corridor), Brian Ranard Davis (6 women known murdered), Paul Durousseau (Seven women), Mark Goudeau “The Baseline Killer” (Eight women and a man in 2005-2006), Coral Eugene Watts (11 women in Texas & 1 in Michigan)among many others.

In other words, many of our initial suppositions about the racialization of things is wrong.

The reason that’s important is that it takes away the focus on those dysfunctional people in every group and, by blaming an entire ethnic group, regular, average people from such groups are put on the defensive, which gives even further cover to the dysfunctional among us all.

That FYF911 or FukYoFlag group down in Texas is, without question, a vile hate group that has to be dealt with. From its verbiage and the most recent result, it’s very similar to the Zebra Killers in California a few decades ago. The Zebra Killings were made much harder to solve because of the false perception that that group (1) didn’t actually exist (an initial mistaken view), (2) the media’s fears that focusing on the obvious racial element in that group might inflame anti-black bigotry overall...again, subsuming a fringe, radicalized group into the larger whole. A graphic history of the Zebra Killings can be found (http://www.heretical.com/miscella/zebra.html).

Ironically enough, racializing, or generalizing smaller subsets as representing the larger group makes it harder to discern the actual truth and more difficult to bring the violently dysfunctional to justice.


Let’s hope that we can learn from the past and NOT give Ms. “Sunshine” and her FYF911 group the latitude that the Zebra Killers got back in the 1970s. While FYF911 IS very much a “black group,” it very much DOES NOT represent much of black America.

Is It Possible That Some Texas Hate Groups Might Be Able to be Charged as "Accessories Before the Fact" in the Assassination of Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth?

Image result for fukyoflagImage result for fukyoflag
"Sunshine" of FukYoFlaf                           Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth



If Shannon Miles acted on calls by specific local, radicalized hate groups to "kill cops" and "lynch white people," WHY wouldn't the active members of such groups that made those calls on the air, be held to account for crimes such as "inciting violence," "conspiracy to commit..." even "Accessory Before the Act, "etc.?

According to Breitbart.com, "Members of the ‪#‎FYF911‬ or ‪#‎FukYoFlag‬ and‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬ movements called for the lynching and hanging of white people and cops. They encouraged others on a radio show Tuesday night (on the Tuesday before Officer Goforth was assassinated) to “turn the tide” and kill white people and cops to send a message about the killing of black people in America.

"One of the F***YoFlag organizers is called “Sunshine.” She has a radio blog show hosted from Texas called, “Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show.”...

"...Breitbart Texas previously reported how Sunshine was upset when “racist white people” infiltrated and disrupted one of her conference calls. She subsequently released the phone number of one of the infiltrators. The veteran immediately started receiving threatening calls.

"One of the #F***YoFlag movement supporters allegedly told a veteran who infiltrated their publicly posted conference call, “We are going to rape and gut your pregnant wife, and your f***ing piece of sh*t unborn creature will be hung from a tree.”

"Breitbart Texas previously encountered Sunshine at a Sandra Bland protest at the Waller County Jail in Texas, where she said all white people should be killed. She told journalists and photographers, “You see this nappy-ass hair on my head? … That means I am one of those more militant Negroes.” She said she was at the protest because “these redneck mother-f**kers murdered Sandra Bland because she had nappy hair like me.”

"#FYF911 black radicals say they will be holding the “imperial powers” that are actually responsible for the terrorist attacks on September 11th accountable on that day, as reported by Breitbart Texas. There are several websites and Twitter handles for the movement.

“Palmetto Star” describes himself as one of the head organizers. He said in a YouTube video that supporters will be burning their symbols of “the illusion of their superiority,” their “false white supremacy,” like the American flag, the British flag, police uniforms, and Ku Klux Klan hoods." (http://www.breitbart.com/…/black-activists-called-for-lync…/)

Threatening, libelous and inciteful speech is NOT protected by the 1st Amendment. People HAVE BEEN convicted of incitement and other such crimes, although, to date, it's usually been nazis, or other "Aryan hate groups," BUT times have changed...and today's "nazis," more often look like Shannon Miles and Vester Flanagan then they do "Tiny the Biker."

Shannon Miles - Poster Child for the "Black Lives Matter" Movement




Sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth



In the wake of a cowardly murder of a Sheriff's Deputy in Harris, Texas, in which a male mammal crept up on Officer Darren Goforth like a sniveling "sneak thief," the male mammal in question (Shannon Miles, pictured below) has been arrested and charged in that case. (http://abc7.com/…/slain-texas-deputy-law-enforcemen…/961654/)

I've seen articles that editorialized that, "According to witnesses, a man snuck up on the Sheriff's Deputy and shot him from behind without saying a word. A weapon from Goforth's shooting was recovered, and ballistics tests "indicate it is a match" with a weapon belonging to Miles, Hickman said. Miles has a previous criminal record that includes trespassing, resisting arrest with violence and disorderly conduct with a firearm, he said."

All fine, EXCEPT, Shannon Miles is NOT a "man." He is more accurately described simply as a "male mammal," not quite fully human, to be sure, any more than James Holmes, Jared Loughner Seung-Hui Cho, among other killers were "men."

THIS is the disease that is the "Black Lives Matter"/BLM Movement. It is not only an ANTI-Police, but a PRO-Black Thug movement.

It's primary thrust is that "Black thug's lives matter too."

They DO NOT!

Every thug (of every background) is "an enemy of society," and as such, those "lives" really DO NOT matter.

The thug/violent felon is the ultimate "useless eater" - one who contributes nothing, but sucks up a disproportionate amount of energy, food and other resources. They are, in EVERY appreciable way, a net cost, or drag upon society. They produce NOTHING and destroy whatever they touch.
Moreover, this is exactly what this "movement" has wanted from the start...a thug's war on America's Police.

While it's vital to note that this is NOT so much a "black vs white" issue, as it IS a lowlife vs producer issue. The vast majority of African-Americans are hard-working, decent people. Many are in law enforcement themselves. AND a LOT of the anti-Police violence has been orchestrated and manipulated by OSW-type whites and much of the "protesting"/rioting has been reportedly paid for by wealthy Far-Left WHITES, like George Soros among others. That’s a BIG part of all this.

This issue is primarily IDEOLOGICAL, not ETHNIC. Right now, it's black police officers, court & corrections officers who are most vulnerable....seen as "traitors" by black thugs and looked on warily by worried whites.

Just as the anti-cop movement is multi-ethnic, the pro-cop, anti-thug movement must also be multi-ethnic.

The entire BLM movement must be fully investigated, although the current DoJ is obviously not to be trusted with that job. A new administration MUST come in and immediately clean house at the DoJ, reorganize the FBI and set an entirely different tone than the current one that's been set by an ineffectual "Community Organizer."

Many questions must be answered in such an investigation. What other affiliations does this group have? Have the OWS (Occupy Wall Street), SEIU and other such groups been supportive of BLM, and if so, in what ways? It certainly seems so, as there was a plethora of white faces present in Ferguson and Baltimore. What role did they play in the violence in those locations?

There are widespread reports of "protesters" being paid in Ferguson, Baltimore and other locales. Where did that money come from?

Can a concerned citizen actually be indicted for criminal offenses merely for paying for such protests"?
Absolutely, they can!

Charges can start with "inciting to riot," "disturbing the peace," and other ancillary ones can be piled on from there. All that's necessary is a criminal justice system that is not only willing, but eager to entertain and fully prosecute such charges.

Go after the sources of the money and the air goes right out of such movements almost immediately.
Go after the finances of the moneyed sources and the law licenses of those who support such movements and all of that "support" will simply evaporate.

The start to all of that lies in making a major change in the Executive Branch of our government. Hillary Clinton is already deeply wounded and even worse scandals appear to be on the horizon. Bernie Sanders is a 74 y/o Left-wing dinosaur...enough said.

Behind Trump, Ben Carson is now firmly in 2nd place among the GOP hopefuls, and Carly Fiorina is moving up fast. NONE of those are members of the "political/media class." ALL of them can be counted as true "outsiders." AND it seems that an outsider is what's needed to fully and effectively clean house at the DoJ and rearrange the FBI, the NSA, etc.

All of that, of course, is merely Step 1....Step 2 would come in the form of wealthy Conservatives and Libertarians, or cartels comprised of the same, buying up the major media outlets and wresting them from the existing "political class."

Right now, sad to say, America's existing political/media class constitutes "An entrenched enemy within."

How Vester Flanagan (a/k/a Bryce Williams) Became the Next Dylann Roof


Image result for Vester Flanagan
Vester Flanagan



Saying that the Charleston Church murders, committed by yet another EDP (emotionally disturbed person), “Sent him over the top,” this morning, ironically enough, Vester Flanagan (a/k/a Bryce Williams) became the latest Dylann Roof. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/11827315/Virginia-shooting-Gunman-Bryce-Williams-told-by-TV-station-to-seek-medical-help-after-colleagues-complaints-live.html)

Vester Flanagan was, by all accounts, a disgruntled "affirmative action baby," a man, whom fellow newser, Larrell Reynolds, who’d worked with him at the small Virginia station (WDBJ Ch 7) said that Flanagan, “had trouble acting and dressing professionally,” and was prone to outbursts of anger. Mr. Reynolds relayed, that Vester Flanagan was a difficult person to get along with, but whenever he clashed with people he blamed it on racism and homophobia, "He'd just be like, it's because I'm black and gay," said Mr Reynolds.

By all accounts, Mr. Flanagan was given far more chances to screw up than most other employees would've been, ironically enough, probably precisely BECAUSE he was "black and gay." His demeanor seems to hearken back to the title of an Ellis Cose book, "The Rage of a Privileged Class." All of that has been exacerbated by America's race/gender preferences and the segregated standards that go along with them.

A recent YouTube video shows what appears to be Vester Flanagan in a road rage incident. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W_eyKgfcWA)

This is the inevitable result of our ongoing celebration of victimization. Entire movements, like the illegitimate BLM (Black Lives Matter, which laments the deaths of thugs like Mike Brown, but not the likes of Jamyla Bolden http://abc7news.com/news/no-arrests-days-after-fatal-shooting-of-girl-9-in-ferguson-missouri/952282/) movement, that are dedicated to enabling those who would look to blame others for their own failures and see themselves as perpetual victims.

How many other Vester Flanagan’s are out there?

How many more Dylann Roof’s or Adam Lanza’s?

What are their triggers? For the autistic Adam Lanza, it seemed to be sinking into a world of extremely violent video games, for Dylann Roof was the way he related to the victimization he saw embraced in various white separatist websites and for Vester Flanagan, it seemed to be the way his own internal obsession with race intersected with the BLM narrative.

Bottom line, each individual is ultimately to blame. We are responsible for how we act toward all the negative messages and stimuli that surrounds us.

Isn’t it hard to “stay positive?”

You bet, but that doesn’t make it OK, or justified not to.
We are far too quick to look for simplistic answers to complex problems when confronted with ugly realities such as these. Like Dylann Roof, Vester Flanagan was almost certainly NOT "in his right mind," BUT neither of them were likely "mentally ill"...more likely, BOTH might be classified as "emotionally disturbed," an umbrella term for people who generally "don't play well with others." Almost certainly neither would reach the bar for "mentally incompetent" to be held accountable for their crimes, as James Holmes' (the Aurora, Colorado killer) trial recently showed.

Whereas mental illness is an organic disease, or set of diseases that has a given onset and specific symptoms, emotional disturbance is generally a CHOICE. Yes, we each CHOOSE how we will interpret the world around us and react to it.

Were both Dylann Roof and Vester Flanagan encouraged and enabled by various nefarious movements and websites? Probably yes, but neither probably needed such stimuli, as their internal compasses were so screwed up.

Tragically for Vester Flanagan, his kind of bigotry has been winked at and given a pass for decades now. The media and academia have gleefully fed into that. They have lionized a pro-criminal, anti-police movement like "Black Lives matter" and only NOW, belatedly do they scorn Vester Flanagan as a "hate filled bigot."

IF those in the media had taken a more honest approach to racial and social issues earlier MAYBE Vester Flanagan might have been forced to look inward at correcting his own flaws...or maybe he'd have just gone and done what Dylann Roof did, and found some obscure websites in which to indulge the self-victimization they were intent on validating.

In the wake of such tragedies some of the more simplistic among us reflexively blame “the availability of guns.” That’s NOT the reason...nor even “A reason” for why such things happen, neither is mental or emotional illness.

ALL of the above, except for Adam Lanza functioned reasonably capably in society, held jobs, interacted with others, regardless of how dysfunctionally, and planned out their murders.

The BLM movement is no more “responsible” for how Vester Flanagan reacted to it, any more than were any white separatist sites “responsible” for the way Dylann Roof interpreted their messages. Such groups have a right to freedom of speech. Of course, as much as we may have a right to “spew hatred,” under the 1st Amendment, we have no right to act on such hatred...and therein lies the conundrum. When reckless and irresponsible, often emotionally disturbed people latch onto such narratives and interpret them in their own twisted ways, bad things happen.
Gun bans clearly don’t work. The Philippines has a total gun ban and is besieged with “backyard gun shops.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fna9WEO6BjE) Guns are incredibly easy to make and it’s not hard to imagine that American home gunsmiths would fashion even higher quality weaponry...for a price.

We CAN and SHOULD enforce the very real gun laws we have on the books already, like stipulating that a person’s mental health records and felony arrest records are rendered accessible once that person files for a permit for a hand gun.

THAT and we SHOULD make the much needed reforms to our currently dysfunctional mental health system, but that would take money, money so many of us are loathe to consider spending on something we tend to see as “somebody else’s problem.”

BUT, like welfare’s having had the very worst and most pernicious impact on the black family (helping fuel fatherless families, a deluge of very young, single mothers mired in poverty and dependency and millions coming to see the government as “responsible for taking care of their life necessities”), the current movement that enshrines victimization as some sort of virtue has hurt that community most of all.

I think back to the way at least one black news reporter eulogized the late Reverend Ike, after Rev. Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II’s death back in 2009, as having led “a wretched, venal life.” (http://www.post-gazette.com/…/The-wret…/stories/200908040223)

While Reverend Ike was at least part huckster, but he also embodied the message that prosperity isn’t a bad thing (that “the lack of money was the root of all evil”...often that truly is) and the gospel espoused by the likes of Norman Vincent Peale and so many others who espouse “positive thinking,” success-visualization, etc.

NONE of those things are guaranteed to make anyone rich, but attitude, is, all too often, EVERYTHING! Without a positive, upbeat attitude, a person is generally doomed to a life of unhappiness. When we add in a tendency to consistently look outward, blaming others for our own inner flaws, we doom ourselves to lives of perpetual misery.


THAT, more than anything else, is what the dysfunctional life and miserable death of Vester Flanagan (a/k/a Bryce Williams) most embodied. And that is a very sad testament to the BLM movement and the other racial grievance and "social justice warriors"
