"Should I be worried about being a slave, about being returned to slavery because certain things happened in the Constitution that you had to change?"—Whoopi Goldberg, the View
They’re doing it again. I remember being in line in 2000 at an event and two African American’s were in line before me and they were talking about the 2000 Presidential elections between Vice President Al Gore and Gov. George W. Bush.
What I heard was a startling display of reverse racism. One said to the other that they would never vote for George Bush because if Bush were elected he is going to re-institute slavery.
Of all of the most outlandish of claims why must it always revert to this? Need I remind everyone the Republican Party is the Party of Lincoln?(See story)
Everyone knows this, but it's worth repeating: The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln and was established in 1854 to block the expansion of slavery.One of my friends, he’s black, makes it known emphatically that he is voting for Sen. Barack Obama because he is a Black man.
The Democratic Party was the party of slavery: Its two founders, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, owned large numbers of slaves, and every party platform before the Civil War defended the institution unequivocally.
After the war, it was the Republican Party that rammed through the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution over Democratic opposition.
Republicans also enacted a series of civil-rights laws that culminated in the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which basically did what the Civil Rights Act of 1964 accomplished … Historically speaking, the Republican Party has a far better record on race than the Democrats. Sen. McCain should not be shy about saying so.--Bruce Bartlett
This reverse racism that Whoopi and people who think like her are displaying is not only ignorant but it is as ugly if not uglier than its progenitor.
Racism has been heretofore say to have come from ignorance but this neo reverse racism is a willing self delusion that some Black have believing somehow that Whites have the power or the desire to put Black people back in chains.
Affirmative Action’s original intent was to allow opportunities that qualified Blacks where not receiving because of racism. Lately Affirmative Action has been identified with placing unqualified minorities into positions that they do not warrant.
It is ashamed that Black people are backing an unqualified Black man for the most important office in this country. Barack Obama is not qualified to be the President of the United States thus fulfilling all of the stereotypes about Blacks and Affirmative Action that have currently developed about Affirmative Action and Black people.
Whoopi it is the welfare state, which Liberals promote, that is what has destroyed Black families by creating the slavery of dependency on the State. Those are exactly the policies that Barack Obama and the Democrat Party are campaigning to enact if he should be elected President.
Whoopi should be reminded that Blacks owned slaves too! So your Massa, Whoopi, could be the candidate that you’re voting for Barack Obama not John McCain!
