Cedartown, Georgia, is a quiet town. It’s about 15 miles from my office. When my wife and I drive to her mother’s home in Alabama, we go through Cedartown. Last week there was a gruesome murder. A 27-year-old woman with a four-year-old daughter was stabbed to death. She was delivering pizza to help earn money to take care of her daughter.
Cadedra Cook, 18, and an unnamed 15-year-old male are charged with stabbing Elizabeth Hutchenson, 27, fifty times when she arrived at Cook’s home in Cedartown, Georgia, The Cedartown Standard reports.
Cook and the unnamed 15-year-old male are black, Hutchenson is white. Where are the race hustlers?
“Gunfire erupted in a church parking lot as a funeral wrapped up Thursday [June 7, 2012] in an Atlanta suburb, leaving two people dead and another two wounded.” The shooters and the victims are black. Kenneth Samuel, the pastor of the church, told reporters, “Shots rang out and the police locked down the church. I was shocked to hear what happened. I had just finished my eulogy and tried to do the best I could to speak to the many teens about valuing life.”

Two former Auburn football players were shot and killed at a party in Alabama. They are black, and so was the shooter.
Where are the race hustlers?
In February of 2009, in his first major speech after being confirmed as the nation’s first black attorney general, Eric Holder said the following to a crowd celebrating Black History Month:
“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.”
There’s not much on which I agree with Eric Holder, but on his claim that we are a nation of cowards when it comes to race, I can agree.
The cowards are the so-called black leaders who engage in race baiting when they publicize an incident that includes blacks so they can use it for political one-upmanship. The Trayvon Martin shooting is a perfect example. Every day in America blacks kill other blacks, and in the case of the Cedartown woman, whites. The race baiters are nowhere to be found because there is no political capital and money to be made.
Some whites are also cowards. They refuse to engage blacks on this issue. It’s destroying black communities. The only thing self-appointed black leaders can do is call for more government action and more money. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have been in the shake-down business for years, using white guilt and fear of boycotts to blackmail businesses to “donate” to their organizations. It’s time we stood up to them no matter how they describe us.
It’s time blacks stop blaming their troubles on whites, the rich, conservatives, slavery, and whatever is the latest fashionable argument for why blacks are killing other blacks. I’ve had enough of it.
