Four year old Hayden Wright, got drunk, escaped his house, stole his neighbor's Christmas presents and then roamed the streets in a brown dress from one of the stolen gifts. You just cannot make up stuff like this. As you watch the video below, listen to what the mother says about how the little boy wants to be like his father the jailbird.
Question: Why does this four year old boy even know that his father is in jail? What happened to the good old days when adults committed lies of omission to spare young minds ugly truths?
I am a black conservative from a black conservative family. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and finally settled in New Jersey. Throughout my life I knew I did not share many of the common beliefs of other American blacks.
For starters, I never took to the term African-American. I have meet too many real Africans who are now Americans, to ever with a straight face say we share something in common other than skin tones. Their history and culture is truly a unique and is a completely different experience from my own. My culture is distinctly American, from the way I speak, think, dress and act and you know what else? I love it! So for me, I will always be an American who just happens to be black.
I put myself and my beliefs out here in cyberspace, to show my fellow blacks that there is something more. That one need not accept the false promise of the next social program, the belief in government as savior or the next Democratic candidate will right all wrongs. That true Hope and Change comes from belief in yourself, in a nation that allows dynamic movement if you are bold enough, smart enough and brave enough to make it happen.
