A little history on racism

Tasine 2011/09/01 21:38:12

With all the rhetoric from people like Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters—and
even Nancy Pelosi—claiming everyone in the Tea Party is a racist, I think it’s
time we examine the true beginnings of racism in America.

Like most people, I was raised to believe that all racist-type problems
originated from the Republican Party.

WRONG—and I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t realize just how thoroughly wrong I
was until last year when I watched a video by PJTV’s AlfonZo Rachel called
Examining Black Loyalty to Democrats”.

I watched it early one morning and after it was over I woke up my husband and
made him watch it with me. He was just as shocked as I was at the
disinformation we’d been fed all our lives.

“The Democrat Party has been the pro-slavery party, the pro-segregation
party, the anti-civil rights party but the majority of the black community votes
democrat,” Alfonzo says. “The Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist fraternity founded
by the Democrat Party & their message was simple: vote or die. And when you
vote, make sure it’s Democrat.”

Maybe in 2011, after originally being threatened to “vote Democrat or die”,
African-Americans are perpetuating their Democratic tradition more out of habit
than logic.

I agree with AlfonZo that every Republican and Democrat needs a reminder of
who’s who in America—especially in light of the constant stream of racist
accusations coming out of the White House. So below are the Civil Rights
records of the Republican and Democratic Parties, starting with 1858 and ending
with 1996. And at the bottom of the page is AlfonZo Rachel’s video,
Examining Black Loyalty to Democrats”. Please watch it and
discuss it with your entire family and share it with your friends.

I’m hearing chatter that this is going to be a very race card-driven
election, so the best way we can combat their accusations is to arm ourselves
with all the facts. We all need to know who we really are—and who they really
are as well.

Planned Parenthood and someone Hillary
Clinton has said is one of her heroes
. Sanger said, “We should hire three
or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with
engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is
through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to
exterminate the Negro population….”

  • SuiJuri... Always ... 2011/09/04 09:19:30
    If you believe that the constitution is Americas only salvation I have a question for you. According to the Supreme Court of the United States of America are Drivers and Marriage Licenses Constitutional?

    I will even give you a hint. Meister v. Moore in 1877. Yeah I know its a bit old but, I think that in 1877 they understood the Constitution a little better than most do today.
  • Tasine SuiJuri... 2011/09/04 14:56:41
    I haven't looked up the case, and goodness only knows what a SCOTUS would say, bit I say they are not Constitutional. I also say that many, many of our laws are not Constitutional.
  • SuiJuri... Tasine 2011/09/04 18:54:41
    Meister v. Moore in 1877, the Supreme Court has ruled that "marriage is a common right" and that the state laws or statutes that have been created before or since are not legal constraints, but "are mere directives," thereby retaining the legal weight of recommendation only. Because of this Federal license, it is illegal for any state to mandate any form of license or ceremony and, technically, all states must recognize "common law" marriages of all citizens.

    All Licenses and permits are unlawful for citizens. They only apply to persons operating in commerce.

    Also it is funny to note the legal definition of a license.

    Black’s Law Dictionary defines "license" as, "The permission by competent authority to do an act which without such permission, would be illegal." People need to ask themselves- why should it be illegal to marry or drive without the State’s permission?

    After all the state is only lent our authority.

    We the people created the state not the other way around. An if people would look at the old laws on the books it was always the state had this or that area to work in and nothing more. Everything else was left to the people.

    Oh how uneducated the American public has become in over 200 years.

    there's on sad point, the blacks don't want to be bothered with the facts, they like lies, and there so called black leaders are the biggest liars and race hustlers living on the planet today. they will all burn in hell because they believe the lie instead of truth. Another sad point , it comes out of there racist church pulpits, excrementing False facts along with hatred of whites who never done anything to them whatsoever, many whites were not even in this country until the early 1900'S and knew nothing of the slavery issue. it just goes to show not only are they race hustlers they are money laundering scam artists.
    It sad but, I have not sympathy at all FOR THEM ANYLONGER, it's all used up and they can blame themselves for it along with there race pimps and they know who they are. WHO THE HELL CARES!!!!!!

    YOU ARE RIGHT AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THAT PIG RACIST ERIC HOLDER WANTS THE BLACKS TO DO TO US. BUT DON'T WORRY There only 10% of the population and they are going nowhere. by the way, the Hispanics don't like them either they have always been enemies, don't listen to that brother garbage that hear on the news and from the black leaders and the black race pimps ,because there is no brother ship between the the two minorities. they despise one another.

    you can lead a horse to water, but cant make him drink. You can give the average black the facts but they will still vote for people who keep them on the government plantation. Do you really think liberals want the blacks to better themselves with college and stuff? A young black girl can get welfare and section 8 quicker than blink, but let her try to get much help with college?

    To those uneducated blacks who still think the liberals are you friend. This is done to control your votes.
  • Tasine jay 2011/09/02 15:28:43
    Well said. I don't believe the liberals give a hoot about the welfare of blacks anymore than about any of us, but they can buy the black vote with lying promises. And they can buy a few white votes from imbeciles and left leaning whites, often one and the same.
  • jay Tasine 2011/09/02 15:33:32
    white guilt is also a popular theme. I think liberals fear good decent black folk and white conservatives working together. The jig will be up and america will come together as americans
  • Tasine jay 2011/09/02 16:58:05
    I think you are right. About 30 years ago I became the first female mayor in our county. Some of the people working on the Juneteenth celebration asked me to speak on that special day. I said I'd love to. However, 2-3 more days passed and a couple of the widely respected black men in town privately told me they wish I would not speak, would not attend.

    They said while the locals never caused problems, a lot of the "city" folks always came and some of them were not so understanding - and the local blacks didn't want to see an incident between the "city blacks" and a white female mayor. They begged me not to go as there was only one entrance which also served as an exit road. I probably should have gone regardless, but I didn't as my local blacks asked me not to.
