    Did anyone see Al Sharpton on cable this weekend? It was an all black caucus and it seemed like everyone was there. Even the new head of the RNC, Michael Steele was there.

    Al was great. Boy he knows how to make a point. Someone said, in response to the idea that now because they have a black president and a black runs the RNC, that there is no longer a need for an Al Sharpton anymore.

    He said,

    As for the RNC picking a black or the Dems picking a black president. He said, "We didn't fight to get one or two of us to the mountain top."

    He's right. There is still racism. Inner city kids still get an inferior education, etc.

    And in response to the idea that the democrats are the racist party and take blacks for granted. Al said, "people think blacks don't know what we are doing when we vote. let me explain something to them. democrat is not in our DNA. When Republicans freed the slaves, we were Republicans. When Democrats started helping us with civil rights and voting rights, we became Democrats"

    I think what he was saying is, "what have you done for me lately"

    "It was an all black caucus"

    More accurately it was "The State Of The Black Union."

    Oh yea. Someone asked Al about "never imagining a black president".

    Al said, "I never imagined a recession like this or that a president would lie us into a war for 6 plus years. So when people start seeing things they never saw before, it a makes them reach for things they never thought they'd reach for. In other words, if whitey didn't fuck up so bad, a lot of people wouldn't have given the black guy a chance.

    So true. Just like we wouldn't have voted for GW Bush if times were bad. But because times were good, we didn't think GW could fuck it up that bad. We got greedy and thought we could have it that good PLUS get some tax breaks.

    Don't worry, I heard what you think when I listened to Rush this weekend.

    Rush said that your party is not racist, you want everyone to succeed. And then scan across the audience and it was 100% white. LOL.

    You are all aware, are you not, that even if this nation was entirely racism free, that the Blacks would continue to be on the bottom of the heap financially.

    We live in a capitalist economy.

    Hence a lack of capital will keep you poor.

    And since Blacks are most deficient of capital, they will continue to be the people who have the hardest time of making it in America.

    Obviously if we were racism free it might start to get better, but the pernicious effects of mot having enough money to invest in yourself and your life would continue to disadvantage the Blacks, depite that.

    Why don't you break up the good old white boy network that runs your party.

    Oh, just because you got one black guy to be the executive secretary doesn't mean anything.

    That's like Ben Bernaeke or Alan Greenspan running the Fed. They run it. That doesn't mean they own it.

    Democrats think that 100% of the American citizens own the country. This is our country. And we want it to serve all of us. And we won't let even 1% of our people starve, even if it is their fault. Even if it means we all pay a little higher in taxes to pay for welfare for these slackers, so be it.

    Republicans think only they own this country. Them and everyone else who is richer than they are. And if you are broke today and rich tomorrow, you are welcome in the club. If you are broke tomorrow, then fuck you and die, it is your own fault, no matter what, there should be no safety net.

    And if you are poor and not voting Republican, you are dumb. Because?????
