Re: Ostracizing Black Leaders Who Criticize Obama
In Response To: Re: Ostracizing Black Leaders Who Criticize Obama ()
The problem is that even when the criticism is constructive the individual making the critique is ostracized. Unfortunately, too many of us are engaging in the same behavior that supporter of former President Bush engaged in. Any person who criticized Bush was labeled as being unpatriotic. Now any African American who criticize President Obama is labeled as being jealous, Uncle Tom, etc.
Many of us found the behavior of Bush supporters offensive because we did not necessarily agree with his policies or liked him as a president. But because we like President Obama we are condoning the same behavior we disapprove.
