I grew up poor, lived in a black neighborhood, got hassled by police for being white in that black neighborhood, was told by black girls that they
wouldn't date me because I was white, had to drop out of college because I didn't have enough money while my black roommate got a free ride, got
passed over for job promotions because I was white.
I got my screen name from my friends when I was kid. I was the only white kid in our group, so they all called me White Shadow.
I live in the Mississippi Delta where whites are the minority. I have been called a racist, a bigot, honky, cracker, and white trash. Now that I am
older, blacks think I am a cop because I have no problem speaking to anyone. Now the MSM and politicians are telling me that because I am a white
man, I am a racist, and I have to give everything that I fought and scraped to get to someone else that won't do the same because of White
I don't usually step into the political arena on ATS because everyone has an opinion, and my two cents really doesn't matter. But here is my two
I am a proud American.
I am sick and tired of our elected officials apologizing for that. Whether it is the economy, health care, the environment, or foreign policy, we are
still the greatest nation on earth. We have our problems and issues, but I wouldn't trade it for any other country in the world.
Bernie Sanders is a Socialist. He has said so himself. The younger generations don't know what that means because we no longer teach it in school.
Here it is in a nutshell. You work hard and are able to afford steak, but your neighbor doesn't work hard and can only afford Ramen Noodles. The
socialists will tell you that it's not fair that you eat steak while your neighbor does not, so they are going to take from you and give to your
neighbor so you can both afford hamburger. It sounds good in theory, but the actuality of it and human nature is that you will stop working as hard
because you have no incentive. No matter how hard you work, you can only have hamburger. But wait, now that you are not working as hard, you can
only afford hamburger to begin with. The socialists are still going to take from you because your neighbor can still only afford Ramen Noodles. Now
you both get Beef Stew. This keeps going until you both can only afford Ramen Noodles. The socialist idea is to pull everyone up to the greatest
common denominator, but it really only pulls everyone down to the lowest common denominator. This has been tried around the world and has always
Trump is a showman. That's it. Back in the 80's and 90's, he used other people's money to try to build his empire. Every time he failed, he just
filed for bankruptcy. He is NOT a successful businessman like everyone wants to believe. Even the fortune that he has now, he inherited from his
Hilary Clinton...well she is a politician that can do no wrong in the eyes of the MSM.
Marco Rubio is a self-proclaimed establishment politician. That means that he is going to maintain the status quo.
I was supporting Ben Carson. He is a non-politician, successful businessman that came up in the very situation that Bernie claims that Whites do not
understand. He has dropped out due to lack of support. Oh, and he is a black man.
I'll get off my soap box now and leave you with this:
Everyone needs to forget about the government fixing their lives. Get off your butt (LOL, he said butt), and do something to improve your situation.
The government is not going to fix it. The only thing that you can control is YOU. Open your eyes and do a little research on your candidate. Don't
let other people tell you what to think. Regardless of your race, gender, social situation, sexual orientation, etc., we are all in this together.
Start acting like it.
