Why do blacks continue to support Democrats? By Adele Fergusen
Remember Ronald Reagan’s story about the kid who had to shovel a huge pile of manure? He went about it with such joy he was asked why and said, “With all that manure, there’s got to be a pony in there somewhere.” The pony hidden in slavery is the fact that it was the ticket to America for black people. I have long urged blacks to consider their presence here as the work of God, who wanted to bring them to this raw, new country and used slavery to achieve it. A harsh life, to be sure, but many immigrants suffered hardships and indignations as indentured servants. Their descendants rose above it. You don’t hear them bemoaning their forebears’ life the way some blacks can’t rise above the fact theirs were slaves. Besides freedom, a job and a roof over their heads, they all sought respect. But even after all these years, too many have yet to realize that to get respect, you have to give it. The treatment given President Bush at Coretta King’s funeral was shameful. And these weren’t poor, uneducated black people who “dissed” him. They were among the country’s top-drawer blacks...
Yeah, what is it with you moulies anyway? Hell, the Irish were sold to brutal slavers, ripped from their families, brought here in the bellies of slave ships and forced to live out generations as owned chattel to be used, beaten, raped, bought and sold with no rights or hope of escape, and you don't hear the Irish crying about it! Maybe you should have another million man march and just walk it off! Via The General.
