Racism OK against Black Republicans

The Washington Times is reporting on democrats being OK with employing race-baiting tactics agains black republicans. What do black democrats say about it? They’re all cool with it, saying it’s just “pointing out the obvious.” Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, who is a republican, is the target of all this racism from various colored members of the democratic party.

Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.
Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.
Operatives for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) also obtained a copy of his credit report — the only Republican candidate so targeted.
But black Democrats say there is nothing wrong with “pointing out the obvious.”
“There is a difference between pointing out the obvious and calling someone names,” said a campaign spokesman for Kweisi Mfume, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate and former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

That’s freakin amazing. I don’t really know what to think or to say, other than wow. People are worried about the state of the repulican party. The democrats have a lot more to worry about than republicans do. They’ve alienated a large portion of their constituency, too bad it’ll probably go un-noticed.

Why aren’t people like Jesse Jackson freaking out right now? Democrats are the ones constantly preaching tolerance and acceptance of all. How the hell can they preach tolerance when they won’t even practice racial tolerance on their end? It’s just not right. They’re fighting for the rights of individuals that have the desire to kill every American, yet they’re fine with being racist towards black members of the republican party. This just goes to show that the left in this country hates America.

This really pisses me off. They’re willing to be racist against American citizens simply because they’re black republicans. Yet they refuse to exhibit any sort of racism towards those that are deserving of racism. War should be declared on the democratic party, they should all be ousted from U.S. borders.

Rosa Parks Dead at Age 92

You’ve undoubtedly heard by now that Rosa Parks passed away lastnight at the ripe old age of 92. I saw a little about it lastnight on FoxNews before heading to bed. Many people attribute the civil rights progress that was made since the 50′s and 60′s to her refusing to give up her bus seat for a white person. From WaPo:

Rosa Parks, the dignified African American seamstress whose refusal to surrender a bus seat to a white man launched the modern civil rights movement and inspired generations of activists, died last night at her home in Detroit, the Wayne County medical examiner’s office said. She was 92.

No cause of death was reported immediately. She had dementia since 2002.

No doubt she made a huge contribution to the civil rights movement. Was she a pawn of the NAACP though? Probably. James Joyner of Outside The Beltway linked to a post in which Richard Evans argues that Rosa was indeed a pawn of the NAACP. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the NAACP basically took her over for their own agenda. I don’t exactly see how any of that matters now. I mean, we already know how organizations like the NAACP function, would we expect anything less?

James also has good post summarizing Rosa and notes how todays civil rights activists pale in comparison to Rosa. He couldn’t be more right.
