Juan Williams: A Happy Negro?

by James Jett

Today, I had to stop my work to watch Juan Williams on Bill O’Reilly’s Show. My reason for watching, I wanted to see the man that called Warren a happy Negro on CNN and hear what Mr. Williams had to say about being called a “happy Negro.” As expected he made it clear that he has done and is doing many good things in his efforts to provide information that will inform those people that see the need to support the Black Communities, in planning and providing to improve the well being of the people living in those neighborhoods. He has published books on the subject and talked about the needs of Black Americans as long as I have been listening and watching him. So his conversation with Bill O’Reilly about the statements made by Bill at dinner with Rev. Sharpton about Black restaurants and concerts, that lead some to imply that Bill O’Reilly made a racial statement, prompted the man “on CNN” to call Mr. William a happy Negro.
Because I watch Juan Williams every Sunday and have listened to him on radio over the years, I know I agree with him about 50 percent of the time. Here I agree with Juan Williams 100 percent and will continue to watch him each Sunday. The other man, well, I rather watch a capable, well informed Happy Negro, and will work hard to avoid those that appear angry, because angry people can sometime, do harm, to other human beings.
