    Here's what I wrote on the Hannitard Forum that got me banned, I still stick by the accurate message below.

    "Yesssss massa I gots off a de plantation a longs times ago massa, now i be in de house wit you."

    "You know massa, i thinks all of de blacks needs to go back to the plantation massa, so they knows wat works is massa! Can i gets on the approved list of negroes now massa?"

    Those are paraphrases but correct translations that come from the republican 'conservative's" list of "approved negroes", cain, west, and peterson."
    Setting The Record Straight

    Perhaps if black conservatives would spend more time demonstrating the "virtues" of being one, instead of hurling inaccurate, bigoted, blanket generalizations that please their white masters, they would get more respect and a better reception.

    Suggesting conservative republicans are slaves or uncle toms, makes you look like a fool.

    Do you think it makes them (Black conservatives and White conservatives) look like fools when they call Blacks "brainwashed" for voting democrat? Do you think that those same people look like fools and bigots when they state that "the Blacks" are on the "democrat plantation"? Do you think that those same people look like fools and bigots when they state that ; ""One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working," Peterson told The Huffington Post's Black Voices on Tuesday afternoon. "I'm going to put them all on the plantation. They need a good hard education on what it is to work."?

    What about this? "Rush Limbaugh accused the Democratic Party on Thursday of trying “to keep blacks on the dependency plantation” — of “Uncle Sam’s Cabin.”

    “The Democrats of old fought to keep blacks living on the plantation, Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” Limbaugh said on his show, referring to Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel. “We need to revise that. Now the Democrats fight to keep blacks on the dependency plantation. Uncle Tom’s Cabin, no. It’s now Uncle Sam’s Cabin.”

    John McWhorter. I am not certain what his politics are but his books are a great read. I believe he leans left. I mention him because he is a black man and offers his perspective on life and race relations, not all of which I agree with but that does not mean that all his views are not without merit imo.

    I mention him because sometimes there are people the MSM gives little attention and they are the ones with the most interesting depth of thought.

    I'll check out his work. Thanks.

    I just think a better message would be a positive one instead of one that makes a wholesale, bigoted, and inaccurate generalization about a "race" of people.

    That's where your misunderstanding is. I don't care how anyone votes, that's their right to vote that way. I am also intelligent and insightful enough to realize that people choose their vote for a myriad of reasons. The only ones I referred to as "Uncle Toms" are the ones who have those sentiments and hurled those insults.

    I don't think you will be disappointed. I would love to hear him speak in person. Oh and by the way I believe he is an Obama supporter which makes me crazy. :lol:

    I agree. I think frustration and ignorance drives the negative tone sometimes.

    The problem has always been when we try to lump similiar people into one group with one label.

    I am not like all white people. I am not like all women. I am also not like all people in my socio-economic bracket. I am also not like all the people I work with in my company nor in my industry.

    Nothing makes me bristle more than when assumptions are made about who I am, what I like or what I think. I try not to behave that way with others. It is more work but much more accurate to take people one on one. Case by case basis. I can assure you I had a stereotype that I once harbored ripped to shreds when a person of this particular group ended up being someone who supported me freely and with much kindness in my time of need.

    I agree, that's why i have always felt more comfortable with Liberals and Libertarians. Instead of telling a group of people that the reason they vote democrat is that they are deadbeats, who are on a plantation, want handouts, and a re brainwashed. The better course of action would be to have a positive attitude and plan.

    IOW

    any one that is black and does not agree with you is a Tom and any one that is white and does not agree with you is a racist.

    Is that you Al Sharpton?
