I feel sorry for Bill Clinton.
I can’t believe I’m feeling sorry for ANY Clinton, but there it is.
Last month he had Jeremiah Wright (who Bill invited to the White House) screech this – “Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us.
No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”
(damn poor English coming from a supposedly well educated intellectual – IMHO)
Now Spike Lee gets in on the act with this quote (From Politico.com) – “The Clintons, man, they would lie on a stack of Bibles. Snipers?
That’s not misspeaking; that’s some pure bull ****. I voted for Clinton twice, but that’s over with. These old black politicians say, “Ooh,
Massuh Clinton was good to us, massuh hired a lot of us, massuh was good!” Hoo! Charlie Rangel, David Dinkins – they have to understand this is
a new day. People ain’t feelin’ that stuff. It’s like a tide, and the people who get in the way are just gonna get swept out into the
Guess these two haven’t read ‘Bill Clinton and Black America’ by Dewayne Wickham.
I wonder if Devil Patrick
agree with them? Somehow I doubt it.
I wonder if Barry C. Black
would agree? Somehow I doubt it.
I wonder if American Hero Rosa Parks
would agree with those two. It was under Bill
Clinton’s watch that Rosa Parks was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Wonder if she too would turn around and bite him … or if she’d

Under Bill Clinton there was job creation that strongly helped bring down black unemployment to 6.0%
Bill Clinton has a foundation in HARLEM that is working to reduce Type 2 Diabetes.
is also in Harlem. Some of his former (black) cabinet
members attended the opening.
Bill Clinton sent 28 African-American nominees to the Senate Judiciary Committee for confirmation as Federal Judges.
says Bill Clinton wasn’t America’s
‘first black president’ but he was the next best thing. His empathy for the black community was, and still is, genuine and moving. His
One America Initiative
is a monument to his sincerity on this issue. He was awarded
the Philadelphia Liberty Medal
(along with George Bush Sr.) for his work with
Katrina victims – most of whom were black Americans. On October 17, 2002 he became the first (only?) white person inducted into the Black Arkansas
Hall of Fame. He has received international honors from (mostly black) countries for his work to combat AIDS/HIV.
The Clinton Health Care reform would help poor people of all races all across this country. Poor people of ALL RACES … that means poor BLACK people
are included in that health care reform.
Look … the guy isn’t perfect. But he certainly isn’t ‘riding dirty’ on black people. And he absolutely DOES NOT deserve Spike Lee calling
him Massuh Clinton.
Those who feed the croc get bit last.
