In case you'd rather not watch, here's the gist of it.
It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth. We’re all born idiots, and we only get over that condition as we get less young. My view is, they’re going to run the country some day, so we should really explain why they’re so frickin’ stupid about so many things.I have to wonder if he'll get called out the way Hillary Rosen did for her perceived insult to motherhood. I suspect not. Dissing young people has long been an accepted practice in this country.
This is a particular pet peeve of mine because I think that the wisdom of the old needs to be challenged by the passion of the young in order for real change to come. And so I'd like to give Mr. Goldberg a little pictorial history of what he's dealing with when he takes on young people.
Mississippi lunch counter, USA
Soweto, South Africa
Tienamen Square, China
Oh yes, and then there was that election in the USA in 2008
Mr. Goldberg can either learn the easy way or the hard way what Ms. Ella Baker knew long ago.
The older I get the better I know that the secret of my going on
Is when the reins are in the hands of the young, who dare to run against the storm
To me young people come first, they have the courage where we fail
And if I can but shed some light as they carry us through the gale
