Wright and right

April 25, 2008 - Paul Giannamore
Follow this if you can, sparked by the headlines of April 25.

1. Wesley Snipes, who, as far as I know, didn't pay his taxes but didn't shoot anybody, gets three years in jail.

2. The guy who sold a gun and equipment to the shooters at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois U., is invited to speak to students in support of packing heat on college campuses.

3. The nation remains, supposedly, aghast, at the comments of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright who said (^%%! America, taking it as a symbol of the "angry black man."

Well, look above. Snipes offered to pay fines, do community service, pay his taxes. He's got no criminal record. Nobody died. And he gets three years. Gun dealers get honored a year after one of their guns killed kids on a peaceful college campus.

So, why are we surprised that black men can be angry over what happens in this nation?

And, BTW, isn't holding Barack Obama's feet to the fire over Rev. Wright kind of like saying the Pope was in charge when JFK was president? Ahhh. Lunacy.
