Craziness and deceit in Delaware about black violence.

Interesting exchange on the local cable TV channel tonight in Wilmington Delaware. A show called the Upper Room.

A Reverend Morton was talking about his mission: Social justice for black people. And how a recent trip to Israel was not a spiritual quest, but political one. And how Israel stole land from people and “we’ve seen that happen before,” he said with a knowing grin.

And how he was so happy to go to Ghana because that is where “his people were from” and “that was a spiritual mission.”

But this night, he was telling the cable TV audience about his next big journey to Tallahassee to fight the “Stand Your Ground laws that led to the death of Jordan Davis.  And how white people are afraid of young black men. And how next it could be “your son” who is the victim of what one national black magazine called an epidemic of white on black slaughter.

This is an increasingly common theme in the black media: The black person as a common victim of racial violence from whites.

Then Howard Powell had to go and spoil it all.

Powell, an entrepreneur and comedian, was sitting next to the diminutive Morton  and was about 25 percent taller and two times heavier. He was visibly uncomfortable with the narrative. He had something to say to “keep it real.”

He is scared of black teenagers too. And he wanted to talk more about it, but Morton cut him off. “You don’t how some people are going to use that,” Morton said, cautioning the friendly giant.

He tried to explain: “I’m from the suburbs. And I’m afraid.”

But by then, it was too late. Dr. Donald Morton cut him off again and the show was over.

A word about Dr. Morton, from Dr. Morton’s blog: “Dr. Morton is revered as one of the most influential oracles in the urban community.”

After the show, I sent emails and Facebook messages to all involved: “Hey, what was up with that. What was he trying to say? And why did Dr. Morton try and stop him?”

Here is what Michael Riley, the producer of the show, told me in a Facebook message:

“Thanks for watching the program tonight, Colin. In the Upper Room is always excited to hear from our viewers. Dr. Donald and all of us wanted to maintain a seriousness about a sensitive subject (concerns over civil rights).

So rather than end the program with a lighthearted, comedic remark (Howard is a comedian and meant no ill will), we went ahead and wrapped up on time. By the way, if you or anyone you know is interested in being a part of the program as a guest, please feel free to contact us through our website http://itupperroom.com. Thanks, Colin!”

“Dr. Morton is revered as one of the most influential oracles in the urban community.” -- Dr. Morton.

“Dr. Morton is revered as one of the most influential oracles in the urban community.” — Dr. Morton.

“Nice try,” quoth I. “That is not even close to being true.” And I described the show I had just seen: How they were trying to muzzle Howard Powell and now, the show producer is not being candid about it.

Uh, that is a polite way of saying he was lying his ass off.

Quoth he: “Colin, we know where you stand. To be frank with you, I do not entertain negative energy in my circle. That is not what I am here for. Unless, you have something positive to contribute, please take your leave. Thank you.”

Quoth me: Nothing. He blocked me and took my posts down. Thankfully I had already clipped it.

What Powell was saying was something that is talked about in other shows on the largely black channel: Black adults are afraid of black children. Scared to death. Literally.

And they don’t know how it got that way. Or what to do about it.

As for comedian and entrepreneur, still waiting for him to reply.

But they say the show will be on YouTube tomorrow.

Any bets whether it is?

Terence Sommer says:

Just more BS from those perpetual victims.

laura r says:

blacks are afraid of these thugs. it would make a good panel discussion or radio interview.

Marlin B. Newburn says:

So the “oracle” doesn’t like “negative energy.” That means he doesn’t want his persecution fantasies interrupted by an adult who is honest.

This self-absorbed intellectual midget is a tragic-comedy. Then again, many black people love this form of stand-up humor.

Someone should name the next ghetto drive-by shooting in his honor.

Fenny Famous says:

Keep us posted Colin. I would love to see that clip or ones like it!

Jack Laurie says:

I saw clips from the movie 12 Years a Slave, it’s bullcrap…blacks female slaves were just about always raped by other black slaves, almost never by whites…and blacks were the ones wielding the whips, not white…the slaves policed their own!

Fenny Famous says:

Do you have any proof of this? That movie has very little plot it’s just slavery porn

Jack Laurie says:

Yes, I do! My Great Grandmother who was born in 1872 in Virginia…she died in 1961, but she told me lots of stories before she died…my Grandmother and Father also knew lots of stories about slavery, directly from relatives who lived it

Fenny Famous says:

Great but anything in print? I have a feeling that these movies leave out the black participation in the slave trade and just make it all black victims

Jack Laurie says:

I’ll look for it, research it a little and see if I can find the book I read a few years ago…it’s like Roots showed white men running through the jungle trying to kidnap Africans…whites never left the ports, stayed near the ship while other Africans marched in the slaves they had captured from the interior…Africans sold blacks into slavery, sometimes criminals, or raids on other tribes, and sometimes sold their own children into slavery

Thomas Smith says:

I always find it troubling how naïve common folks are. Because you heard a story of a different experience means it invalidates all stories to the contrary. Have you even considered they are both true? Or are you always willing to label people liars that don’t share your opinions or experiences?
