UPDATE: I don’t even know what made me think this was Louis Farrakhan! My apologies for misnaming the speaker I was talking about. Thanks to the commenter who pointed out my mistake. (I was not, however, talking about Jesse Jackson’s comment)
A young man was brutally beaten to death by his peers. It was caught on cellphone video.
But death was not the evil – violence was not the evil. The evil – gleaned from
Louis Farrakhan’s El-Hajj Khalid Samad’s statement at the funeral – was that the event was black on black violence. His comment? Watch this:
It is NEVER okay for ANYONE to brutalize ANYONE – I don’t give a rat’s patootie if they’re PURPLE!!
