I Have a Dream

You know, that sweet one in which a bigbox superstore rolls over all the kikes, towelheads, and gooks.

Andrew Young, the American civil rights leader who was hired by Wal- Mart Stores to improve its public image, has resigned from that post after telling an African-American newspaper that Jewish, Arab and Korean shop owners had "ripped off" urban communities for years, "selling us stale bread, and bad meat and wilted vegetables."

In the interview, published Thursday in The Los Angeles Sentinel, a weekly, Young said Wal-Mart should displace mom-and-pop stores in urban neighborhoods.

"You see those are the people who have been overcharging us," he said of the owners of the small stores, "and they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs."
...but, lest he be misunderstood, after resigning his position Mr. Young clarified for those who may have been offended:
"It's against everything I ever thought in my life," Young said. "It never should have been said. I was speaking in the context of Atlanta, and that does not work in New York or Los Angeles."
See, it's only those Atlanta kikes, towelheads, and gooks that are the problem. The rest of you he just wants to hug and kiss and call you by a name appropriate to our shared ancestral African heritage.

Just as the oppressed can become the oppressor, the victim of racism isn't immune from being a Jew-, Arab-, Korean-hating bigot behind a friendly Wal-Mart smiley face.

But wait, there's more!

Explaining his comments about Koreans, Jews and Arabs, Young said he was referring to the history of retail ownership in the neighborhood where he lives in southwestern Atlanta.

"Almost everyone who has come into my community has moved in, made money and moved out and moved up," he said. "That process is still continuing."
So, he doesn't just loathe these people because of their race; he loathes them for being successful. For bettering themselves. For pursuing the American dream.

Now, that's a damn fine message to be sending to the black community, isn't it? It would seem that Mr. Young gave up the fight for equal rights in favor of the search for cultural excuses.

How very sad.
