"What the Hell Did Van Jones Say?" or "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!"

Van Jones resigned from his mid-level environmental advisor role at the White House. He signed a birther petition and called Republicans some naughty words. He talks about white pollution being dumped in minority areas. And, he commented about white students shooting up schools.

His comments about white students have been touted as horrible racisim. Plenty of the faithful on Sarah Palin's Facebook Page were up-in-arms over them. You can watch the video here.

But, first read the transcript of the comments and forget it's a black man talking... forget Glenn "paints with poop" Beck got mad because Jones was instrumental in the Color of Change campaign that started the advertiser stampede.

If you read it, his comments kind of sound like a pitch to not ignore the problems and serious issues of young white males. I don't think he says there are no issues amongst minority youth, or to stop the programs helping minority youth.

Really bad commie bullshit here, huh?

Check it out:

Our young white males are suffering in this society, .. profoundly. Profoundly! And nobody is saying a word about it.

We’ll criminalize the black student; criminalize the black child, the Latino child. We’ll have this whole discussion are they animals? Are they not animals? Should we abuse them? Should we help them? Blah blah blah. And that young white boy is sitting there suffering.

You've never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never. They always say, we can't believe it happened here, we can't believe it was these suburban white kids. It's only them!

Now, a black kid might shoot another black kid. He's not going to shoot up the whole school. My cousin's up in here, I ain't going to shoot the whole school, I might hit my cousin. I'm going to shoot you, though.

But these young white men will be in so much pain and so isolated, so (INAUDIBLE), they'll shoot up the entire school. Where is the concern? Where is the love? Where is the compassion for these young men?

Is it me? What do you think?
