A few days ago a black Liberal Journalist Johnathan Capeheart, came out and said the slogan, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” needs to be stopped and discontinued. He said it is based on a falsehood. He pointed out that that just did not happen and was all a lie. He quoted the pages of the report from the Justice Department report that exonerated the police officer in the fatal shooting in Ferguson.

The right and honest thing would be for all the other journalists who pushed that slogan to come forward and acknowledge that it was wrong and apologize for it. Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, the Black Panthers and NAACP and members of the Congressional Black Caucus who waved their arms in the air saying, “Hands up, don’t shoot” on the floor of the United States Congress should all come forward and apologize and acknowledge that it was wrong.

Have they done that? Absolutely not! Instead that one journalist has been turned on by the liberals. They have smeared him. They have called him all sorts of things. They accused him of saying it because he wanted to be liked by white people. They have called him a traitor and a house negro. They said he is only doing it to curry favor of white money,

His reply? He said he did not do it for any of the reasons he was accused. He said he did it, “Because it was the right thing to do.!”

Johnathan Capeheart had courage to stick by his guns, to come out and say it in the first place, and then defend it in the second place. His reason for doing it was the best reason in the world! He did it because it was the right thing to do. Have you seen any of the others come forward and do the same thing? No. Not one single one among them has had the courage, the honesty and integrity and the common decency to come out publicly and apologize and admit they were wrong. Not one of them.

From now on every one of these people when they point the finger at someone and accuse them of being racist, should be standing in front of a full length mirror, pointing at their own reflection.

I applaud and congratulate Johnathan Capeheart who had the integrity and the courage to come out with it like he did and after being smeared for it, for sticking to his guns. I hope every reader will too.

It was the right thing to do, and he did it! Bravo!
