I found this comment yesterday in my Comments Page (of people I can’t release to post here, sadly), written in response to my POST. It’s about Candace Owens and it’s from someone some of you will remember as UPTOWN STEVE, from the FPM comments years ago. Uptown is Black and angry, and exactly the man who Candace warns about; he has to put down any Black American who doesn’t share his opinions. I have always felt sorry for him. Here is the comment he left for me which I copied/pasted for us to discuss here today:
“I hope I’m around when this smug little Owens kid gets her N word wake up call. When you’re black and make a living performing for white bigots, the wake up call is inevitable. “
“Smug little Owens kid“… I got to thinking ‘smug’ often means ‘righteous and proud of it’. I think she should be ‘smug’. I wish Uptown could be smug like she is, grateful that he was able to overcome the stereotypes he still applauds.
He goes on to say “Performing for white bigots”…Has Thomas Sowell ever felt that? Has Walter Williams? Does Kanye West? Has Larry Elder? More and more young Black professionals are coming on FOX (not allowed at CNN or MSNBC because they can’t take the fact that they don’t follow what’s expected of “those po black folks who should be thinkin’ like we do”…) and they’re all about Ms Owens’ ideology. I am so proud of Black OR White Americans who just want to BE AMERICAN, NO MATTER WHAT COLOR THEY ARE.
Uptown Steve mentions the “N word”…I don’t think Candace will ever deserve or get the “N word” …and, if she does, it won’t be from a Conservative. And I pity the person who tries it.
What can make a person like Uptown feel appreciated in America? Or is his thinking so far off, so victim-filled, so nasty and angry that this is a good reason why Conservatives can’t give him the time of day? Perhaps he’s a person who still thinks ridiculous untruths that push his agenda, like “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” really happened and those things anger him? Not true, but…
I have Black family now and love them dearly………and anybody who’d slam them better DAMNED well get out of MY WAY, too. TRUST ME ON THAT.
