  •  You did not mention the Zimmerman letter (15+ / 0-)

    to the NAACP which alleges George organized the African American community to protest the beating of a homeless man culminating in a town hall style meeting 01/08/2011 which was partially organized by George.

    Implicit in the language of the letter is the assumption that the African American community was apathetic on the issue until George lit a fire under them.
    Also implicit is the implication that until George came along, the African American community was unable to organize.
    Finally there is the impression that even after the African American community was energized and engaged, they still required George's assistance in order to hold the town hall meeting. (to date I can find no media coverage or discussion of this meeting)
    Perhaps I read too much into the tone of the letter but it appears remarkably tone deaf in its tone and its conflation of George's activities on behalf of the African American community borders upon being insulting
    Here is the letter for your consideration
