Bob Woodson blasted black leaders over the Trayvon Martin shooting, while ignoring the murder of Chris Lane. Woodson, who is black himself was speaking at an RNC luncheon, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the "I Have a Dream Speech." Woodson said the Martin Luther King would have mourned for both of them.
Woodson is the head of the Center for Neighborhood Enterprises, a group dedicated to, "The Center’s mission is to transform lives, schools, and troubled neighborhoods, from the inside out. Current programs are the Violence-Free Zone youth violence reduction program; Training and Technical Assistance for Community-Based Organizations; and Adult Financial Literacy."
Woodson also had a few choice words for democratic politicians who are busy pandering to every fringe group in America, while ignoring the plight of the black community, which represents about 12% of the US population.
“Everybody has come in front of them on the bus — gays, immigrants, women, environmentalists. You never hear any talk about the conditions confronting poor blacks and poor people in general.”
The immigration bill will be especially damaging to the poor young blacks, who currently have an unemployment rate of 41.6%. They will be forced to compete against 11.5 million newly legal aliens. And since these new legals are not eligible for coverage under the employer mandate, employers save $3,000 dollars off the top for hiring one over a US citizen.
Woodson criticized what he referred to as moral traitors, who mourned Martin and ignored ther death of Lane. Woodson knew his words were drawing strong feelings but refused to back off from his words.
Also speaking at the luncheon was King’s niece, Alveda King, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.).
