Amos and Andy was a radio, then Television hit program written and acted in by two white men, Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, removed from the airways because it offended a certain group of people, apparently the same group that found Archie Bunker a pillar of democratically correct society(?) It portrayed a group of black friends, Amos Jones, Andrew (H) Hogg Brown, Madame Queen, and assorted other characters such as Lightning, who was anything but, just to mention a few. These fictional people, meant to be portrayed as black, were always devising idiotic schemes, that made no sense whatsoever, ultimately foiled by the more sen sensible character of Amos Jones.
It would seem that, in our current real world, we have been revisited by Amos, Andy, Kingfish Stevens, Madame Queen, and certainly Lightning, who was anything but, with regard to certain members of our Congress,. particularly from the states of California, New York, Maryland Michigan abetted by the Black Caucus and the N.A.A.C.P. who exemplify the misconceptions, the idiocy, the conniving and the fraud perpetrated by the characters who were pure fiction in the aforementioned radio and television program that ran from the 1920’s to the 1950’s.
Any of our current cast of characters that lurk in the Congress, the administration, the streets of Harlem, Chicago and Los Angeles would readily fit in with those of Amos and Andy. The difference would be that both fictional characters were ultimately well-meaning, something that cannot be said of our present leaders and members of black leadership. It is no secret that their agenda has less to do with George Zimmerman than it has to do with gaining more power. It has less to do with the “memory” of Trayvon Martin and more to do with the administration’s and “justice departments” drive to rid the American people of their right to bear arms, to make us more dependent upon government “for our own safety”, along with continued interference in every aspect of our way of life. Despite the fact that disgusting people like Sharpton and Jackson, “contrived religious leaders?”, got the trial that they wanted. Despite the fact that both the defense and prosecution accepted the six women for the jury in the George Zimmerman trial, Jackson’s and Sharpton (remember Tawana Brawly and how he ruined the life of NYC policeman) not liking the verdict are indirectly responsible for creating havoc in the streets, as is obama for remaining mute and holder for stirring the pot with suggestion and irresponsible conducting of his office.
The Black leadership, for the most part wants to keep their people, ignorant and sorely dependent, so that they can be readily manipulated. More than likely a third of the rioters haven’t a clue why they are rioting, because the money is obviously good and the rest are black revolutionaries with nothing better to do. Sadly good black men and women, such as D. Borelli, and Allen West continually have their voices silenced by the scum that still uses the ills of pre 1964 America, North and South, to justify anything they do and want.
We certainly were better of with Amos and Andy and comedy characters that made people laugh, black and white, and offended perhaps a few.
