Being black and opposing the first black president’s policies was obviously not a popular thing to do in the black community. However, as I stated in the article, I did not believe in throwing away my beliefs just to be popular.
My belief is that the current policy of “spending our way out of debt” is a disaster in the making. As a nation we are well beyond the point where we can reasonably pay off our debt. Should I completely ignore the obvious hardship we are buying ourselves so that I can maintain racial solidarity with Obama or should I stand up for what I truly believe to be right?
The real racism is being directed at black conservatives!
When Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN)went on radio recently calling the Tea Partiers a “clone of George Wallace” comparing them to the Ku Klux Klan without the “robes and hoods” he was actually describing the Democrat practice of intimidating, even lynching black conservatives who dare to speak out against Obama.
I suppose we should be thankful that Democrats aren’t donning white sheets and hoods and burning crosses in the lawns of black conservative as they did in the old days when they targeted blacks and Republicans in the South.
And just as liberals feign outrage over phony charges that Tea Partiers shouted the “n” word at black Congressman before the vote on health care, these same people were silent when Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Colin Powell, Judge Janice Rogers Brown, Michael Steele and any number of black Republicans and conservatives have been called every racial epithet in the book and more.
