Andrew Young, Former Democratic Mayor Of Atlanta, Goes Mel Gibson-- Without Drinking

I'm sure this will get the play that the Gibson story did. After all, this is a fairly prominent Democratic official making these remarks; why on earth wouldn't the media put the spotlight on this?

Speaking as a spokesman for Wal*Mart (nice call, guys), Young said, in response to whether Wal*Mart ought to be concerned about driving "mom and pop" stores out of business:

"Well, I think they should; they ran the 'mom and pop' stores out of my neighborhood," the Sentinel, a newspaper serving the African-American community, reported. "But you see, those are the people who have been overcharging us β€” selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables. And they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs; very few black people own these stores."

You know, there's an elephant in the room, and no one wants to talk about. The media is forever hectoring white people to not be racist. Fine-- it's a good message, and furthermore, 30 years of the anti-racist drumbeat has had positive effects. It's now socially impermissible to make overtly racist remarks. Some still think them, of course, but progress is progress.

But the media is less inclined to lecture the black community, which, let's not mince words about this, is extremely, extremely antisemitic.

There are three groups in America which are currently not only antisemitic, but so unashamed of it to actually give vent to Jew-hatred without a second's thought. And yet no one seems particularly willing to talk about it.

For the media's, and anti-racist warrirors', edification, the three groups currently possessing a high number of members who wallow in open Jew-hatred are:

1) blacks

2) Muslims

3) major cast members of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

I admire the media for targeting one of these groups for public shaming, but one out of three ain't good. Note that the two groups harboring large numbers of anti-semites that the media won't mention just happen to be, coincidentally I'm sure, important blocs in the Democratic-Liberal-Media Coalition.

And note that while the left peddles the claim the right are anti-Muslim, it was one of their own caught calling Arabs greedy predators. And echoing the Sharpton slur about Koreans to boot.

More at Donnah's link. Andrew Young is getting good at resigning over shameful remarks. It's a wonder Wal*Mart hired this idiot.

Missed H/T: Jack Straw sent me this earlier, too, but I only now opened it. Thanks, Jack.
