The Reverend Jesse Jackson and Bruce Gordon, the new president of NAACP, are planning a big event to honor a very special hero of the black community. This event is expected to draw 15,000 people and will probably be held in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Who is this Black American hero they are planning to honor?

Is it Colin Powell, the first black 4-star general, first black chairman of the joint chiefs, first black man to be Secretary of State, and first black man who could be President if only he wanted to be? No. It's not him.

Is it Clarence Thomas, the first black man to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States? Nope.

Is it Dr. Condoleeza Rice, Stanford professor and the first black woman to serve as Secretary of State? Nope, not her

Is it Guy Bluford, the first black NASA astronaut who flew for 8 days in space? Nope. Not him.

Is it Ron McNair, the second black NASA astronaut (who died in the space shuttle Challenger disaster)? Nope. Not good enough.

Is it Dr. Walter Williams, distinguished professor of economics at George Mason University, and another truly inspiring black American? Nope.

Is it Dr. Thomas Sowell, distinguished professor from Stanford University? No.

I could go on and on. There are thousands of truly amazing black Americans who deserve an honor like this…. so who is it that The Reverend Jackson and the NAACP plan to honor? Which black icon is going to draw 15,000 people to honor him?

It's none other than Stan “Kookie” Williams, the thieving murdering thug who founded the Crips gang - the coward who killed a little old lady with a shotgun blast to her face. This guy was so rotten and vile that they had to put him to sleep to get rid of him once and for all. That's who is being honored. That's the role model for our young people.

I'm sorry. I just don't get it. Can this really be happening?

I think we must live in an alternate universe. Our universe is upside-down, inside out, and left-to-right instead of right-to-left. Nothing here makes sense to me.
