It is an injustice, a legacy of the racist threads of this nationâ€™s history, but prominent African-Americans are regularly called upon to explain or repudiate what other black Americans have to say, while white public figures are rarely, if ever, handed that burden.
I have a sneaky feeling that there’s a lot of people who should be repudiatin’ their priest or minister or whatever. Yes, even you White people! Hell, I had a Father bail me out of jail in college, and he later had some sort of “incident” that put him in question, although I never heard how it ended up. Imagine how that’s gonna come back to haunt me when I run for President.
