I can imagine the anger with which Adam B. Coleman wrote his article "Elitist George Soros is making life worse for black Americans", devastating from the very title and in which he denounces that philanthropists such as the aforementioned tycoon, a revolutionary on behalf of others, "refuse to accept that their ideologies do more harm than good". In his particular case, in fact, "they harm the innocent and benefit the predators in our society".
"Georges Soros spends millions of dollars to make our communities less safe," denounces Coleman, who writes in response to the article that the progressive potentate was published in the unprogressive Wall Street Journal last Sunday (serious question: did the legendary New York newspaper relax for the occasion its strict mechanisms of verification and data monitoring?) And he does it because "he will never suffer the consequences, because he does not live in them", accuses the young Coleman, who is black, who knows perfectly well what he is talking about and who does not mince words:
As much as he bemoans the injustices that may exist in our criminal system, what about the injustices he’s manufacturing by financing lax district attorneys nationwide? Who gets to hold Soros accountable?
"Elitists like Soros believe that they know best, that they are society's saviors," Coleman continues, as if he were the great Friedrich Hayek of the memorable
The Fatal Conceit. "However, to remain the saviors, they need victims, and we will always be victimized by them."
At this point in his J'accuse!, Coleman reminded me of the always stimulating Jason Riley, author of a book that should be required reading, especially in the black community, to which it is in fact directed: Please Stop Helping Us.
I can well imagine Mr. Coleman urging Mr. Soros: "Enough! Stop helping us!
Coleman himself has written a book, also powerfully titled, Black Victim to Black Victor, in which such fundamental questions as these can be read:
Why does wanting aspirations of racial togheterness make me a traitor? Why Martin Luther King Jr. given hero status, but we never listen to our hero's message? (...) Why must black people fit in a box? Why aren't we allowed to decide for ourselves? (...) Why does everyone think that they need to help blacks? Why are black people tolerating lowered expectations from the liberal elite? (...) Why do we wait for the government to save us when we are capable of saving ourselves? Why do we overlook the destructive role that the government has played since the beginning? Why have we allowed family court to displace the black family? (...) Who benefits from our familial disorder?
Could it be that the political elite that find us more beneficial divided than united? Could it be that the alleged black leadership that needs useful victims for their boundless greed? (...) Why are we not willing to admit that there has been immense progress made? (...) Do we want to be America's perpetual victim, or do we want to transform our group's situation into becoming America's resilient victors?
It's worth a look, isn't it?
