At the end of the day …. Race/Off: Jon Stewart’s Rant!!

~~August 31, 2014~~ 

There’s a well known saying: “There’s truth in jest”.

Jon Stewart proves it again. His “rant” covers so many points. It’s right on the money and we need to hear all of it attentively and with an open mind.

I guarantee you that every person of color in this country has faced an indignity, from the ridiculous to the grotesque to the sometimes fatal, at some point in their … I’m going to say last couple of hours. 

Race is there, and it is a constant. You’re tired of hearing about it?

Imagine how ****ing exhausting it is living with it.”

I had to re-write it to make sure we get this!!

~~This Might Be Jon Stewart’s Best Rant Ever. Because Ferguson~~

“By now, some of you are thinking, “Man, I’m so tired of hearing about Ferguson.” I see it in my comments all the time. But rather than explain to you why I think that’s not the best thing to say, I’m gonna let Jon Stewart do it. He’s way more eloquent than me. And he smashes pretty much every argument you might have about why we need to keep talking in an eloquent manner.”

I am borrowing powerful images which my friend MrMilitantNegro has included in his slideshows in powerful posts. They need to be shown and shared time and time again.

I’m sure hope he doesn’t mind. I’m almost sure … brother and sister get along quite well.

Take some time and look at all of these pictures. There are quite a few. Stop at each and think how it would feel if it affected you personally.

The shooting of an unarmed black teenager by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, strikes a racial nerve in the U.S., but Fox News manages to remain colorblind.

      • You have hooked me. I most certainly will with this caveat, I am hoping to get at least some readers to my blog, if not I will keep looking for a site to post where I can get more traffic. I had been a member of Gather where I did in fact have a number of readers, and more than a few mentors. Gather died a slow painful death and I have not found as good place since. I am hoping that Word Press will become that. The jury is still out for me.

  1. Your post is spot on!!! I agree with you and with Jon Stewart. Your blog is both timely and well written. Your synopsis of what Jon said was a difficult thing to do but you did it very well indeed. Write on!
