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.
