NAACP leader

I wouldn’t be much of an American, if I didn’t stand up and respond to the remarks by Ronald Felton, NAACP, leader, that stand your ground benefits the white folks.

That remark was an insult to every law abiding citizen, regardless of race. The city of Wilkes Barre, had its seventh homicide, black on black crime is epidemic all across America. Did he address that issue? Does he believe that citizens don’t have a right to defend themselves, their homes or family?

Wilkes Barre had some heinous crimes, the victims in the Henry Stubb murder only wish they had an opportunity to stand their ground. Voting is an important tool, voter ID makes sense. Ronald Felton sees racism around every corner. If that were true, the president, mother white, claims he is black, Attorney General is black. How did they achieve such high honor in a racistnation?

It’s amazing to me how government leaders pick and choose which racial crime will inflame the community. He who does justice will be in the presence of the lord. Felton remarks are divisive.
