Racism and the Sellouts

June 5, 2007

Racism and the sellouts. I always find it quite interesting when white Democrats tell me (a Latino), how “racist” Republicans are, while their party has done nothing for minorities and continuously endorses candidates who should be considered an embarrassment to minorities, while minorities suffer in poverty. How many years has the Democrat party been helping minorities get out of poverty? Unfortunately, as usual with the Democrat party, results don’t matter, just caring is enough.

Think about what ‘Affirmative Action’ does for a second. It’s saying that based on no other reason than the color of ones skin, that minorities are inferior and too incompetent of playing on a level playing field. That middle and upper class minorities are still at an disadvantage to the poorest of white people. That it has nothing to do with the education one received, the economic background, or the environment. It’s too suggest that people are not created equal, but that minorities need their superiors (white people) to assist them throughout life.

It’s well known that Democrats think that African Americans are not smart enough to make up their own minds about who to vote for. They give them sheets of papers telling them exactly who to vote for out of fear that they’re too stupid and may pull the wrong lever. In fact, wasn’t that the story we heard in Florida? That many of Al Gore votes went to Pat Buchanan and of course who was the people who couldn’t cast a ballot correctly? I seem to remember a word being used back then was “Disenfranchisement”.

You’ll see Democrats out in predominantly African American neighborhoods on election day, forcing them to go vote, yet, trust white people to get out and vote on their own, and make their own decisions. Democrats treat minorities like abused step children, telling them when to jump, or in this case vote, but then do nothing for their communities once the election is over.

Once upon a time in America it was common knowledge in the African American communities that in order to compete with white people, one had to be twice as good to get half as much. Now, in order to succeed in politics, many African American politicians believe they have to be twice as corrupt.

Representative Bill Jefferson has the national spotlight on him, and with good reason. While Kathleen Blanco and the the rest of the statewide Democrats complained and nitpicked everything the Bush administration did during Hurricane Katrina, they said absolutley nothing about Representative Bill Jefferson commandeering National Gaurdsmen taking them to his house to “rescue” documents while people died in the flooding. That’s not even mentioning the 90,000 dollars found in his freezer.

And while the national spotlight is our state representative, the Louisiana spotlight is on local politicians who are sticking their hand in the cookie jar for their own benefit. Though Juan LaFonta was tonight’s focus, he at least seemed to pass the test, had a reasonable explanation, and nothing seemed to be wrong. However Yvonne Dorsey Welch’s spending seemed so inexcusable that she couldn’t even come up with an reason to explain to WAFB why her boyfriend’s non-profit received money.

Not that all black leaders are bad, mind you, but as Edmund Burke so adequately stated, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Far too many times the Democrats have found the worst of characters to represent the black community, to prevent minorities from prospering. In all the time that Democrats have been voting Democrat, what’s happening in those communities? Prosperity?

Democrats love to tell us how they are for the poor and that Republicans are for the rich, but the way I figure it, if 51%+ of the population are rich, Republicans win. If 51%= of the population are poor, Democrats win. So it works in the Democrats best interests to keep minorities poor and dependent on government to give to them. In short, the minority leaders who were a part of this are the very sell outs that we’ve kept a watchful eye out for. They need us poor. If we’re poor, we depend on them, if we depend on them, we’re more likely to vote for them, the more votes they get, the more power they have, the more they get elected. The more they stick their hands in the cookie jar, for the benefit of their family and friends, while these communities get nothing.

Sure there are racist in the Republican party, but those who think Democrats don’t have their fair share of racist in their party are woefully misinformed, or willingly blind.

Sam: You can repeat that comment on all the threads you want. It wont make it true. Marshall: You say "A racist comment by a Republican does not make Republicans racists. " Why would you make that statement? I clearly said in my post " Not all Republicans are racists but there are racist republicans." So since I never claimed that all Republicans are racists, why would you make that statement? But you are kidding yourself if you believe that Lott's comment was not a racist comment. Strom Thurmond ran on a segregation platform. Had the Democratic party not been pushing for civil rights, there is no evidence that Strom Thurmond would have left the party. Stating that our country would have been a better place had Strom Thurmond had been elected is clearly a racist comment because our country would have elected someone whose main platform was to fight civil rights for black people. Lott said the comment twice in his career. Had he said it once, I could forgive it as a misstatement. He said it twice, he firmly believes that our nation would be a better place had a segregationist been elected president. It doesnt matter what the "problems" where. And actually I am a small government Democrat. Im a Democrat because of the civil rights and social issues, im more conservative on fiscal and small government issues.

Danny Zimmerman is a bitter little person, who still can't get over losing in a race for Congress against Bobby Jindal.

Daniel, it is not true that Republicans do not attack their own racists. A racist comment by a Republican does not make Republicans racists. Just as a red-headed murderer does not make all red-heads murderers. Look what happened to Trent Lott for what was NOT a specifically a racist comment. While I certainly admit that it seemed like he was defending Strom Thurmond's segregationist Dixiecrat positions he was not specific when he said "problems". It was still close enough for him to lose his spot as Majority Leader, and rightly so. When David Duke tries to run as a Republican the state and National parties run as fast as they can in the opposite direction. Your critique of the system being corrupt is on target. The Founders believed that the way to combat this was with the system having less power, because power corrupts. Can I assume that you are a Libertarian or small government conservative?

Avman you are 100% right.That is why no black leader wants his people to get real jobs and not depend on him to get them a welfare raise.Notice they do not hire and train any of these poor people so they could at least go to work for them or for the state or even for the federal goverment.Try mentioning people who are able should do state work for their welfare and listen to them cry that is not fair.

Avman: Not all Republicans are racists but there are racist republicans. The whole "I would never vote for a Demcorat because Democrats are a bunch of "N****R LOVERS" comment I heard last year proves it. And there are racist Democrats as well (see Roy Armstrong from the 2004 Congressional race). That doesn't make all Democrats racist. You make several assumptions in this article that are not true. What Democrats do you know that actually believe that minorities cannot make up their own minds on who to vote for? I am a Democrat and I do not believe that for a second. Have Democrats picked the wrong leaders? SURE! But many Republicans have also found the wrong leaders as well. People who are just as corrupt, just as morally flawed, and just as selfish as those Democrats. It is a problem in the overall system and not just a single party. But the whole race issue is something I find laughable. Republicans are quick to blame Democrats for their racists in 2003 when Jindal lost the first time. However, they don't look in their own backyeard and fail to attack their own racists first.
