This person seems to have refined and upgraded his "hustle" from crack dealing to hate mongering to the more streamlined and modernized "reformed and now better informed" platform. Public apologies do not negate past actions and comments. Saying sorry does not fix the prior idiotic statements made by him earlier in his career and like all people above elementary school age, we are wholly responsible for our own actions and statements. The fact that he would engage the media and project himself as a public figure while still being ignorant of something as fundamental as the holocaust is almost unbelievable. I would never want a leader, let alone a pseudo-street politician (regardless of how he and his handlers like to think of him) to represent me knowing that his current convictions could be born out of ignorance that he may renege on later, once it is professionally beneficial. It must be difficult to maintain anti-Semitic sentiment when your attorney who has saved your ass literally dozens of times is a Jew. I dont know why but i figured the leader of the new black panther party might be able to find a competent black attorney to keep on retainer as well, but of all the ex green beret mercenaries he has on his security detail, that jew lawyer is the most fearsome of his entire cadre. The Information Age has changed a lot about the world we live I'm today, including some of the worlds oldest scams, qx being the most modern rendition of the traveling snake oil salesman. He will sell you what you want to hear and when your tastes change, so does his approach, slightly. He's a muslim awaiting the return of christ? very wishy washy language that smacks of the same watered down politics he claims kept him away from politics. The vanity and narcissism of this man is disgusting, and the fact that he wraps it all up in a sleek suit and bodyguards does little to help his self serving image. I took particular exception to the end of the article stating that from his own admission, 40-45% of all claims are not racially based but rather constituents attempts to use qx's bullying force for their own agenda. Perfect representation of what he is really all about. A bully with a bull horn who has been slow to educate himself and grow as a man. I am not a fan of Michael berry in the slightest, but this article makes him out to be the more intelligent and more reasonable of the two polarizing houston figures. And that last thought leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth, kind of like holding a press conference touting racist practices for a supposed rape victim when it turns out she was lying about it all and only using you for her own gain, sound familiar? Keep on your hustle qx, only time will tell how you are remembered, if at all.
