So last week we told you about the brutal beating of a thirteen year old white -- by three African American teens on a school bus in Florida.
On the five we've been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue.
We still have work -- heard a word from Al Sharpton President Obama Eric Holder.
Or the NAACP but over the weekend the reverend Jesse Jackson stepped up to the plate and said this.
We're trying to make -- evidence found that the kid because.
We should discourage people -- and people.
It was black white white black black -- people to stop attacking people must learn.
The live McGill respectfully in the civilized way and it and it could become black white white and black -- makes matters worse than not make medals better.
-- about it it took awhile but you know let's give credit where credit standards the reverend Jesse Jackson did -- -- them and -- make -- comment.
Anyhow so you're using -- your -- your emotions -- so you mean he really did savage you know -- been away.
But I think is important point was he said black white light black.
That he went right to the core of the thing he said -- you know we just have to.
It depends on -- were telling -- -- stop attacking each other which is not a bad in his seventh that's Jesse Jackson I remember.
I've I've seen the good Jackson I've seen the -- Jackson over the years I've seen him many times and talked to many times that this is Rory is very good at doing things like this I'm Reggie didn't.
Any surprises we have heard from any the other ones -- -- Well now but I mean you know where's Al Sharpton right and he certainly has that prominent role in position especially in the wake of the trade on -- -- case and then of course with his position now in television and cable news.
This is a time for him to show unbiased leadership and make a comment and discuss a severe is really interest -- And moving forward as a country to discuss these issues in a meaningful non sensational and accurate way.
Well that the reason why Al Sharpton hasn't come out yet it's because he's waiting for to be a hoax.
That you'll come out and defend -- because that's what he does he's only attached himself to lies.
What -- the -- we gotta be careful as we that tit for tat thing once side will find a hate crime and in the other side will do the same but this does raise a question.
That bullying is only a big deal if it is the majority over the minority.
Bill -- he's the powerful vs the powerless argument.
Blacks -- -- persecuted for sentries.
But -- -- is an illusion of help opt for the powerless are actually attacking the powerless.
More than -- -- -- it's black against black crime that is really the issue here.
So constantly turning this into -- race thing doesn't help anybody especially when you always point to race as the origin of everything it doesn't.
It doesn't -- any Bill -- It's also true though words -- -- rights and generally it's NY what's exactly there it's so.
-- good -- there at -- we contacted.
-- the Reverend Al Sharpton did not respond we contacted the Department of Justice did not respond NAACP.
And jealous did not respond.
Cory Booker as Bob mentioned Cory -- earlier in the call did not respond but the White House did respond they sent us.
Some old talking points about bowling and at school.
-- again it's pulling doubt did you elect Sima points -- advocates -- -- -- they Saturday anyway.
I think at I think that the White House is right to do that and I -- -- done the same thing in opposition.
But they are vulnerable and that Whitney did when President Obama decides to comment on one local case that he creates a firestorm.
He has talked about bullying before and in New Jersey to -- -- isn't our bigs no bullying law in New Jersey with us on the earlier to remembered that.
The bus -- elderly woman elderly but she was -- 65 -- and she was those school bus -- and she was being -- ripped apart by those kids that was on every network television show.
And we -- we talked about it for days.
So -- that there's something to the the powerful been begun and you said something last week -- Mimi think about it this weekend actually run the very thought provoking about.
Older people being scared of -- the younger generation.
And how powerful that becomes and when we ask wetlands the adults in the room why aren't they doing something -- in the bus driver do something.
But this is actually a drug crime in my thing.
Because it's reported at Decatur -- beaten up.
They they try to -- on drugs or the year he told the administrators about it they administrators.
Then don't do anything to prevent this -- that maybe they didn't think it was going to happen I don't think anybody wants this kind of thing happen.
But drugs is at the heart -- -- -- Listen Allen west he commented on FaceBook -- said who leaked the information provided in conference I'm -- -- confidence by the victim.
About the black teens selling drugs who allowed those same individuals -- -- board the bus.
Which was not there is somewhere and all of this was a breakdown of school administrative -- responsibilities to protect.
This young man.
Good point right I think so he really he hits it on the head there because it -- that there is a break down there that resulted in a child getting brutally.
Beaten it was unnecessary and they should've taken steps to make sure that he was say they have an obligation to do so but.
But yeah by about -- obviously -- well I -- first brought -- you know I had a situation like -- personal situation where a -- of -- In my family.
Had to Britain had knocked on the high school for like we got a notice sixty days.
So it turns out that she was going there and checking on going and doing drugs so I'm not resort to the head of security -- should look.
I just drove up your -- this special on drugs detonations published on drugs I -- additional jobs so -- -- another and how does -- come when they.
Sure -- -- for -- -- ninety degrees these guys have long coach on that might tell you some of them I eat half and then.
Then golf I just -- -- watch your percentages -- at this corner all go to the next corner I want to next quarter tops of drugs of dope.
And that -- said -- that's amazing right here in the school property.
I mean these guys are clueless when you turn it back and of course in America yeah -- after -- three -- games now get.
Thoughts on the island and -- and how to get back in the months.
I don't now I don't now.
Just heard about that now the thing that bugs me and no offense.
To Bob because -- -- bring up the left but it seems that -- in any of these situations.
Can play the race card.
It on on either side so if they were white's last Hispanic.
Shoots a black team that is.
Racist if a group of blacks savagely beat a white.
Kid that's also racist because it's probably.
Rooted in poverty which is the fault of whites still went away white liberals are worse for any community that -- -- Because they continued.
They do they continue the lie that you can expect.
Good behavior which is in itself racist they -- the white the white left believes that blacks can't it be expected of good behavior.
And that means more bigoted than anything its speed right speaking of the white left can we take a listen I'm this this is gonna blow your mind folks went to listen to Harry Reid missed -- -- -- that's the setup go.
Obvious that they're doing everything -- make you fail.
And I hope I hope.
And it's and I say this seriously hope that -- -- that's based on.
Substance not the fact that he's an African American.
-- -- No he now wants that to be indicates.
He wants that to be public with what what's what is satisfied majority in the backlog -- are all about the GOP Republicans and Obama well I -- volume -- -- you got -- separated out here's.
And you you could check the left all you want I -- the right all I want about their own.
Brand of how they deal in British relations but the idea Democrats blaming Republicans called racist.
Where -- on that.
I mean there may be a few what's that that who I think we should be a guy that's an important asset accordingly it looked about like they care about little the sky Democrat on the senate because Trayvon Martin were spread rip up a whole bunch of debates about blacks and whites.
We had that debate going on for twenty years and it was a very.
Difficult debate is now -- get nuances I -- get about.
Black on black -- in the inner city is things we need to arrogant and don't you take sensational cases -- development to a major black white issue.
In 2008 senate majority Democrat leader Harry Reid apologize for saying of Barack Obama whom he described as the lights quote light skinned African American with quote.
No negro dialect unless he wanted -- one.
That -- Kimberly is still the majority.
Yeah I mean why this is ideal let this guy on the Sunday news talk shelves because he's just like a ticking time bomb and he should be more responsible on me how is -- -- -- with this kind of behavior.
I think it's more sick in some -- I find it even more troubling and that because I think he really believes I think and I know a lot of people.
On the Democrats I've -- remember going into the 2000.
He said that they don't want him to succeed because he's black tiger -- the president in -- Actually I really think that for example obamacare is a bad policy ranks and if if I actually can argue on the merits and call it bad policy and then they can call me a racist which actually have a discussion now.
Problem -- if it's Hillary Clinton 2016 you don't like the policy we're all going to be but besides -- -- -- -- yeah that's right Harry Reid is a high profile Democrat but I mean let's not start picking out.
I can go pick out fringe right wing Republicans got even -- Are gonna try to eat a lot about said that which is why everybody.
Ought to shut up inside with the parameters as to radar and who ought to be at the table that you know I don't the Republicans are reacting to race.
-- Obama's race but to Harry Reid's stupidity but Bob is right.
If you if you look I think.
To some people I would say in Indian in their early twenties and under probably would look at this show.
And go what are they talking about this is not even part of my life anymore -- they are so far beyond this crap.
That like do we do we we're dealing weird -- the issues of violence are real but -- the issues of race to these kids are like.
Who are these people this that we don't talk about your -- your son does not talk about race I honestly did it did the color gap is gone yeah it's -- -- -- week.
Told the -- here's a classy response to Harry Reid's ridiculous comment.
From -- Scott.
The only black member in the senate.
Our country deserves more from those in Washington I hope senator Reid will realize the offensive nature of his remarks.
Ian apologized and a 10 I'm -- and to those who disagree with the president's policies as -- points out.
Because one thing they are hurting hard working American family's.
-- I think Tim Scott is as -- a nice demeanor right and you would never say a thing about senator Reid is that when he says something that's outrageous and that looking -- -- -- -- you can pick from.
And you want to sort of goes all that's Harry Reid and the other ends it's fine because lots of sand Nina Daria -- and I out there to pay uncle.
And -- -- it -- and is point out the hypocrisy for Republican to the same thing.
They would probably be as -- outrage -- nation stepped down.
You know a lot of a lot of the left so we to refer to -- left to are now you know middle aged left and who went through the civil rights movement.
And there there.
Concept of race goes back to the civil rights movement while the fact is we've moved on from.
Shorter being put in.
Burn in Mississippi and people are not being hung down in Mississippi anymore -- registrations -- there.
There's no doubt about this racism in Boston.
I believe what you went through those periods and I want thrown in Boston I was amazed how much the white community.
Weren't really outraged -- in Boston -- this is all southern -- But let's keep the markets -- tenor of the times you were born in these kids today are not born at a time when there is racial tension.
Still so the -- the well aren't as I understand that I ever had -- have somebody that's attached to manage it well how much.
President Obama noted that in his remarks that he made in the White House -- press briefing room at the end that -- trade on -- trial.
I don't senators -- -- -- trial about that.
Killing of -- on Martin.
He said that his daughters Sasha and Malia they.
That they want to.
They don't talk this way that they are better than they were and so we learn from previous experiences what I think is concerning is how it how exacerbated.
Did the administration actually makes ease tensions.
And partly because we're paying attention to what they're saying we're looking for any signal we want the president to help bring us together and it actually hasn't happened in May -- -- some.
And the fault of those -- would oppose him on his policies somehow I just I don't.
I -- can't get myself to that point I don't think that's true.
