The Hip Hop Summit

I wouldn’t trust community leaders and politicians who joined with David Duke, for instance, at a conference on the future of some aspect of the pop music industry. Why should I trust the ones who went to a “summit” for hip hop, leaving aside how silly a “summit for hip hop” seems, at which the keynote was given by Louis Farrakhan.

Why is white racism bad and black racism treated with respect?

When black community leaders and the media and their constituents act as if Farrakhan is a leader and not a racist, my trust in their judgment is eroded. Wouldn’t you just call me a racist if I reported on speeches David Duke made?

The media would not report on an where someone like David Duke spoke with no comment and a blandness as if Louis Farrakhan or David Duke is just another “community leader.”
