During a recent appearance on the Jay Leno show, Halle Berry showed a distorted picture of herself with a big nose, declaring, “Here’s where I look like my Jewish cousin.” Her comment was one of the most offensive things I’ve come across all year, along with Bill O’Reilly’s comments on his trip to a restaurant where he discovered Black people could actually behave.
I would put her comments in the same category as Imus’ “nappy headed hoe” debacle, but Imus was paid to be offensive and shocking. Unlike the Imus controversy, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the self-proclaimed race saviors of America, have been completely silent.
Perhaps one can easily forgive Halle Berry. She is one of the worst actresses that have ever graced the silver screen. Many believe her Oscar was given because of reasons other than her acting ability. Perhaps using the Orville Redenbacher method acting on screen has earned her more money than I, or most people, will ever dream of.
Still, she should know when to keep her mouth closed. Like Imus, she did apologize. Unlike the Imus comment, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have had nothing to say about it. The silence on this issue by such race whores as Jackson and Sharpton should be of concern. Condemning one type of racism while being silent on another only makes the problem worse in America.
We understand that Jesse Jackson is, perhaps, anti-Semitic. Anybody remember his Hymietown past? Is there anybody who remembers Al Sharpton’s reference to Jews as “diamond merchants”? Certainly the liberals, who run the mainstream media, elevating Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to a status worthy of God, don’t.
Anti-Semitism is becoming a cool trend among the media elite. They believe that Palestinians who bomb schools and restaurants in Israel are just innocent victims and “repressed” minorities.
Jews have overcome negativity more than any minority. Despite the hatred against them, most Jews have become very successful. Perhaps jealousy is the main reason why anti-Semitism has become cool among race baiters and the mainstream media, but it certainly doesn’t make things right.
We need to combat all forms of racism in this country. The pick-and-choose method of speaking out against racism should be just as condemned as racism itself.
