    Black history hasn’t taught us much, or so it seems when we see it continually reduced to a self-serving prop by those who regard it as a tool for advancement.

    Joe Biden telling a Virginia crowd of blacks that GOP policies are “gonna put y’all back in chains” is just any echo of shameless exploitations we’ve all heard before.

    It’s Ted Kennedy suggesting, “Robert Bork’s America is a land in which ... blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters.”



    How could this late liberal lion exploit those Americans who were martyred at those counters for something much greater than a cheap punch line?

    It’s John Kerry telling the congregation at Roxbury’s Twelfth Baptist Church that “a vote for Bill Weld is a vote for Jesse Helms,” as if his Republican opponent was a kindred spirit to the KKK.

    Did he not realize how monstrous that allegation was, or did he simply not care?

    It’s Chuck Turner, ejected from the Boston City Council for accepting a bribe, railing how “African-Americans were brought to this country as slaves, (and) we were whipped and lashed and hung.”

    In that pathetic attempt to divert attention from his own corruption, he cheapened the blood those ancestors shed by using it to wash his dirty hands.

    It’s Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., arrested for mouthing off to a Cambridge cop, saying he planned to donate the handcuffs used to shackle him to the Smithsonian Institute’s museum of black history, as if he had personally challenged Bull Connor.

    Is this all that black history is good for these days?

    Harry Belafonte, offended by the notion of a conservative black, ripped into two secretaries of state appointed by George W. Bush, remember?

    He likened Colin Powell to a slave who was “permitted to come into the house of the master,” as if this decorated military general had bowed and scraped his way to prominence. And then he vilified Condoleezza Rice for having abandoned her principles in deference to her boss, prompting an indignant Rice to fire back, “I don’t need Harry Belafonte to tell me what it means to be black!”

    It’s mean stuff, and much of it comes from liberals who would have you believe they’re the black community’s best friends.

    Black history is American history, too, so to see it appropriated for personal gain ought to offend anyone inclined to honor our heritage.

    It’s why Elizabeth Warren repulses many voters for her unsubstantiated claim to Native American minority status.

    Joe Biden’s racial pandering?

    Maybe republicans should try to court the black vote instead of using them as a tool to rally their base.

    Is that why 95% of blacks despise Republicans?

    Is that why Republicans have only elected six blacks to higher office in 75 years?

    It's honestly shocking to me, that Afrian Americans and Latinos largely vote democrat. It's an epic fail on the GOP side that they do. That's your future right there, socially they far more in line with the GOP than dems and yet they rarely vote republican.

    Republicans are the ones who in fact treat blacks as equals while Democrats make fools of themselves assuming blacks all feel they need their help. After which they make assholes of themselves when the votes are in and blacks are once again forgotten until the next campaign cycle begins.

    The republicans in this country see blacks as NOT having the ability to think for themselves.


    Look at how they claim a party RUN by a black man is expoiting black people.


    They dont see blacks has having the brains to think for themselves

    Sure, that's why they have so much support from minorities.
