Watch this video from a few weeks ago, including audience reaction to Kwame “Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Detroit” Kilpatrick. Is it racist for me to ask whether that White guy they keep showing clapping enthusiastically, left his White card at the door? He reminds me of the reverse of the blind Black Klansman act that Dave Chappelle does.
Ken Cockrell, Jr., the man the Mayor called out, is probably Detroit’s next mayor, per the succession rules of the City of Detroit. While he is a relatively moderate and decent guy (the operant word being, “relatively”), his father Kenneth Cockrell, Sr. was a Marxist attorney and radical, allied with the Black Panthers and, reportedly, a supporter of “Palestinian liberation”.
One other note on the video: If you are not from Detroit and recognize the female newscaster in this video, Diana Lewis, then you probably saw her in the first few “Rocky” movies. She majored in drama, not journalism, in college, and she and her daughter Glenda, who also reports and anchors for Channel 7/ABC Detroit, are constant MCs at events for the pro-Hezbollah/HAMAS American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). Hardly proper for an “impartial journalist.” I once had words with Diana about this, and she told me she made a mistake and wouldn’t do it again . . . but did it several times. Needless to say, I am NOT a fan.
