Columnist Fatima Ali
[*1] , in the Philadelphia Daily News:
If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness – and hopelessness!
If you want to know why elements of this country are “a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness – and hopelessness” then go look in a mirror.
I for one have had enough of this gimme-gimme-gimme garbage. Get off your ass and make something of yourself. The only thing holding you back is you – – – well, that and your co-dependency enablers in the Democratic Party and in the mainstream media. All you’re doing is demonstrating your utter lack of comprehension of economics and human behavior.
If you want a race and class war, Ms. Ali, bring it on. if however you want you and “your people” to be prosperous and successful, adjust your attitude, pull your head out of your ass, and start building rather than sitting around all miserable and waiting for some Messiah to deliver you from your 40 decades in the wilderness.
I’m sitting out here in Missouri, Ms. Ali, minding my own damn business. I couldn’t care less how much melanin a person’s skin has, or what shape their eyelids are. If you’ve got a product I want, I’ll buy it, at a fair price.
So if you want my money, get off your butt and make something that I want to buy, instead of strutting around in the urban core talking trash, wearing bling, scribbling tags on anything you can find, and belittling those in your own community who actually are trying to make things better by starting businesses and getting educations.
If on the other hand you want a class- and race-based civil war–bring it.
