He is using the wording of the slaves who didn't have any civil rights and who dreamed of being free.
Now that black people are free they are easily giving up their civil rights to follow President Obama.
That letter wasn't about Obama and his racist generalizations are offensive and inaccurate.
You are also assuming much when you claim all Black people "follow" Obama.
What exactly does that mean? Especially considering that without the White vote Obama wouldn't be in office.
Did those that voted for George Bush "follow" him?
I think people are supporting the President they elected.
There is NOTHING usual about that.
In the words of the slave
What gives him the authority to speak for Africans slaves in their "words" and the competence to decide what they would say to President Lincoln if
they were alive?
Utter and offensive rubbish.
Is he going to do a "me Japanese" routine and write to President Franklin Roosevelt about why he dropped those interment camps?
Some people have really lost touch.
he is telling everyone that since we are regressing we should have never freed the slaves because they basically got everything the black
people of today wanted. They didn't pay for food, shelter or clothes.
So everyone unemployed and on welfare should be African slaves or just the black ones? I'm from Appalachia and I can tell you that a lot of poor
White people are going to be shocked by this new notion of turning welfare recipients into African slaves.
What about "corporate welfare"?
You know, the kind that eclipses regular welfare for citizens and what you should really be outrages about if you took the time to see how milked we
ALL are getting by these corporations by comparison?
These white-collar thieves going to be slaves too?
That has got to be one of the silliest things I have ever read on ATS. If this is the reasoning behind the Tea-Party I can see why most sensible
Republicans distance themselves from such lunacy.
They want to lock up Michael Steele and make him pick cotton.
Now we have black people on tv crying saying how Obama is going to pay for their gas.
I just love how you even single out isolated cases of silly people saying silly things and blow it out of proportion to represent an entire race of
I guess we can all go to You-Tube and watch videos of people saying unimaginably stupid things and completely box the entire world down to the size of
a sugar cube.
What the leader of the Tea Party is doing is race-baiting the New Black Panthers so that this feud can get them more members and more press. This
behavior is just ridiculous as some of the comments coming from the leaders of the New Black Panthers.
They are BOTH acting in the same.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are just backstage planning this sort of manipulative nonsense.
ATS is swimming in ignorance these days.
