Bundy began to lose support among Republican politician after making comments about seeing black people lounging around public housing and wondering if they had been taught to pick cotton they would not be sitting around and that they would be better off enslaved. The irony in Bundy’s comments is that the United States does target and enslave mostly African descendant and non-white people through so-called tough on crime legislation backed by corporations running private prisons and leasing the enslaved labor out to major American corporations in almost every industry.
The unnamed black male who is also a veteran of the U.S. Armed forces, when asked about Bundy’s suggestion that blacks might be better off enslaved gave an answer that he is very confused about racism white supremacy and how it works. The young black male seems to be unaware that he is being used to deflect charges of racism by the Bundy camp.
This is unacceptable behavior for young black men in a system of white supremacy and an elder in this young man’s family or community needs to correct it. If this young man is ready to die for some cattle and a racist suspect then he needs psychological help as soon as possible.
