“Pres. Obama: “The Audacity of Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee!!!””

  

Wow…

This is some really exciting stuff we witness everyday…  
Let me start off by saying that the tribute to Michael Jackson was more than a memorial; it was an American story…  An American story that speaks of all the things that cause us to call ourselves American…  The Michael Jackson story did not end on the day his heart gave out; it did not end at that moving memorial tribute; the Michael Jackson story will never end as long as there is breath left in an American any where… 

Yes, the Michael Jackson story is a story that is colorless…  
It is a story that is genderless… 
It is a story that cross every cultural boundary… 
Yes, the Michael Jackson story is our story… 
For how many of us have dreamed to be loved and appreciated for who we are… 
How many of us strive to overcome obstacles everyday in order to free ourselves from the bonds that so easily entrap us…  
How many of us dream of having a different look or tone or height or weight… 
So Michael Jackson is just like all of us –

American… 

Wow…
This is some exciting stuff… 
As I watched the tribute yesterday, I was so greatly moved at the so many different perspectives of the man – Michael that was so eloquently presented to us from such a diverse group of Americans…  I was greatly moved by the remarks made by Ms Brooke Shields…
 

Brooke was someone who knew the humorous Michael…  She told story of a young man that only wanted to do one thing; laugh…  Then there was Rev. Al Sharpton, who put everything about this man of colour into it’s proper perspective… 

But (yes the first big phat but in the room) the person I believe is the true hero of the hour for all of us was Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee…  Rep Jackson – Lee is not unknown to us…  She is the one person that was not afraid to step into the ring, strap on the gloves, and knocked out all of this “Great American’s” critics for once and for all… 

Please allow me to go lateral here for a minute….  I have history with Rep. Jackson –  Lee…  This is not the first time in my blog that I have had the opportunity to honor this “Great American”  hero…  In my post: “The Audacity of the House Niggers,” I highlighted the stand she took in the Jena six case when it was addressed by the congress…  This woman of great character, patriotism, and truth reprimanded the federal judge (who was also black) for his lack of involvement in this case before it got out of hand…  Rep. Jackson – Lee truly understands her role as a leader in the House of Representative as well as her obligation to her heritage…  When others sat idly by with their arms folded, Rep. Lee dared to forge out into the deep and stand strong for all of  US(A) especially US(A) of color… 

Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee, for your intestinal fortitude and for standing up for US(A), we “Salute” you…Flag and Soilder

Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee you are a “Great American Hero!!!” 

Culturally speaking you are our present day “Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman…”  You are the keeper of the flame that lights the way to “truth and liberty…”  To my dismay, we are not making many more great leaders as yourself; who selflessly throw themselves into the  fray for those who can’t fight for themselves…   Rep. Jackson – Lee, I am sure you will get a lot of negative press for introducing the congressional declaration on Michael Jackson’s behalf, but (big thank you but in the room),

“Thank you…”  

There is a change in the air… 
For too long have we (Americans) used up our heroes, then later disown them,  and then drag their name through the mud…   We have done this with our veterans, our educators, our freedom fighters, and of course our congressional leaders…  People that are honored around the world as great humanitians and freedom fighters are often unsung in their own backyard…  We as a culture are guilty of abuse of those who stick their necks out for US(A) all…   Yes, we are guilty of abuse of those that invest their time, their money, their name, and yes even their lives; as they strive  to uphold the American Flag – our symbol of  democracy around the world… American Flag
Enough…
It is Enough…

Yes, we are guilty of killing Michael Jackson… 
And the sad thing is that Michael Jackson always forgave us for all that we did to him…  But (it kinda late but in the room) after his demise we try to make amends…
 

For countless others it is too late…  For Michael Jackson, the best way to say we are sorry is to recognize his good works…   For the bible tells us: “he/she without sin cast the first stone…” 

Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee said it best, Michael Jackson was a “Good Samaritan!!!”  The bible does not tell us anything about the personal life of the good Samaritan just simply of his good deed…  Let’s do the same for Michael Jackson…  We know all the negative stories about this man; true and untrue…  It time to give honor to the good stories of how he was loved and respected as an humanitarian the world over… 
Few can make this claim… 

Wow…
This is some exciting stuff… 

Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee, thank you for your tireless devotion to truth…  Thank you for upholding liberty for all Americans…   And most of all, thank you for standing up for your heritage…  As I said in my post: “The Audacity of the House Niggers,”  If we don’t stand up for ourselves, who do we expect to do it???

Rep. Sheila Jackson – Lee, I say again, ” you are a “Great American Leader!!!”” 
“I salute you…”Flag and Soilder

“You are my Hero!!!”
“Do you feel me???”
“I know you do…”
“Let me hear you say, “yes, we can…””
