Share2 Shares 3K Potentially controversial, this list looks at 10 people some dead, some living whose actions have cast a shadow across the reputation of the United States of America. Criminals such as serial killers were left off the list, since they do not affect external opinions on American society very much for better or worse.
Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have set themselves up as black men who defend black people. They make no excuses for their racism, but if pressed, they usually claim that they are patently not racist, and for any white person to accuse them of such makes the accuser racist.
They claim that all they do is stand up for equal rights for black people. But the problem is that black people now have all the rights white people have in the United States. They have them equally, both in quantity and quality.
They openly criticize white people at the instant a crime against blacks hits the news, as they both did most shamefully in the Duke University Lacrosse Scandal. She later accused them all of rape, and it was discovered after many months that she had, in truth, lied about the rape.
She had not been raped, or even touched by any of the players. Her credibility in court was completely destroyed after having had sex with multiple men earlier in the week, and using a vibrator during a previous performance that day for a different couple in a hotel.
She was also drunk and intoxicated with Flexerin at the time of the incident. But before any of this came to light, Sharpton was already on Fox News defending Mangum as a black woman brutalized by white men.
He compared the case to that of Abner Louima, who was severely beaten and sodomized by white NYC police officers, in He would not have proceeded if he did not feel that he could convict.
They asked for a white one. Once all the facts of the case came to light, and Michael Nifong, the lead prosecutor, was discovered to be thoroughly amoral, neither Sharpton nor Jackson apologized for jumping to conclusions.
Jackson even threatened Barack Obama during his presidential campaign, when Obama gave a stern lecture to black fathers about the importance of raising their children properly. Whether this should be in the form of money or power or anything else, the fact is that blacks, whites and all other legalized citizens of the United States of America have, today, equal rights under the law, and this does not satisfy Sharpton or Jackson.
They want revenge against those who were not alive to commit the offenses. Sound a little close to home? By that point, Arnold had already distinguished himself in battle against the British in various battles, from February on. He was shot in the left leg no less than three separate times, and never lost his leg.
After the third wound, he refused to have it amputated, and had it crudely set, resulting in his left leg being 2 inches shorter than his right. During all his military exploits, he was repeatedly passed over for promotion. But Arnold cannot be forgiven for what he considered punitive measures America deserved to have taken against it.
This treachery became so obvious that officers at West Point began wondering if Arnold was selling the goods on the black market for his own gain. No one would have dreamed he was trying his level best to hand West Point on a silver platter to the British, until, on September 22, his ship was fired on by the British, who did not know it was Arnold.
He wrote a personal letter for Andre to carry through enemy lines, giving him safe passage, but Andre was still apprehended the next day outside Tarrytown, New York. In his possession were all the intelligence between Arnold and himself and Clinton, papers which were sent immediately to General Washington, who upon reading them, muttered under his breath and refused to repeat what he said.
Andre was hanged as a spy on October 2, Washington sent men into New York City to kidnap Arnold from his lodging, but Arnold had, unknowingly, changed lodgings and was already on a ship bound for Virginia, and thence to England.
He attempted to explain himself in a letter written to all the inhabitants of America, in which he complained of how unfairly he had been treated, and that he acted out of a duty to punish those responsible.
