Modern Republicans in a dishonest revision of history, have tried using the liberal beliefs of the original republican party to make claims to black people. For example they will use black republicans from the past to gaslight blacks to claim that the current republican party is the right choice for blacks. Meanwhile they use the past conservatism of the democratic party to claim that blacks today are being fooled by the democrats. That we are being tricked or given free stuff which creates a dependency that keeps blacks voting democrat against their best interest and that our interest would be better served if we joined the republican party. They use black historical figures as props.

But there is one problem with this. Here are some words from Frederick Douglass:

“What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy - a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

You can't name one black republican today who would stand before the nation on the Fourth of July questioning and denouncing Americas continuing problem with race. Why? Because opposition to racism has always been a liberal ideal. Frederick Douglass was a progressive and not a conservative.

White conservatives have always opposed racial equality and have always advanced blacks who did not challenge white supremacy. Still today white conservatives love B.T. Washington. Why?

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. ... Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”

This is the dumbest opinion of all time. Washington made this comment in 1911, now let's think about what was going on in those times to understand the stupidity of this statement. But whites loved it because Washington was blaming blacks for the problems created by a legalized system of racial oppression. Today this stupidity manifests itself in Larry Elders, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Jessie Peterson, Ben Carson, Nora Wheatley, Starr Parker or Candice Owens.

This is not about opposition to sucessful blacks, because Oprah Winfrey is more successful than all the people in the prior paragraph combined and she is loved and admired. Barack Obama accomplished what no other black in the history of western civilization has and he is loved and admired. So it is apparent why right wing, anti black, white racism validating blacks are despised and it has nothing to do with success or free shit from democrats.

" The plantation metaphor relies on the misperception that most black Americans are living in poverty. This assumption is demonstrably false; the majority of black Americans are not living in crime-ridden communities or suffering from poverty. But there is a reason why this belief exists. Many Americans might know that the majority of blacks are not poor, but the media constantly bombards the public with images of poor black men and women living on the government’s largesse.

In 2016 22% of blacks fell below the poverty line. That’s a troubling statistic given the fact that about 8.8% of whites were living in poverty. However, the fact remains that the rest of black America is not destitute. While black Americans make up a disproportionate percentage of people using welfare programs, the majority are still not reliant on government assistance and for this reason, the slavery metaphor does not work."



Earlier I quoted Booker T. Washington. Some whites love using his words to counter arguments made by blacks today regarding continuing white racism. To reflect our modern reality, I have modified Washington’s comments.

“There is another class of white people who make a business of keeping the advantages of whites maintained by gaslighting the public into a belief that white racism is now an illusion and that it is whites who face anti white racism. ... Some of these people do not want whites to lose preference, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of white race-"problem solvers" who don’t want America to get well.”

There is no democratic plantation. We were republicans for 100 years. The party failed us. The following statement pretty much sums it up relative to blacks and our experiences with the major political parties. This is a comment from a man who saw the beginning of the first civil rights movement. A man who saw his parents spit on by whites during the days of Jim Crow.

I don’t say that to take sides with democrats, because I'm old enough and have seen MORE than enough to know that NEITHER political party is truly and collectively concerned about the well being of the black citizens of this country. It was no badge of honor to abolish slavery, or pass the civil rights act, the voting act or to even sign affirmative action into law.

Those were the most basic of human rights as well as rights of a tax paying citizen to be treated equally and fairly, so there is ZERO gratitude owed to either party for those so called "historical moments".


The racist history of the Democratic party is well documented. I will not be writing about the 1860 Democratic Party. I find is sad and pathetic that when we bring our grievance to the table, “conservatives” provide lectures to us on how long ago slavery was. Yet as they pander to get blacks to join the modern republican party, we must remember that it was the democrats who were pro slavery. But as I look back over the years since I cast my first ballot (1980), I see a republican party that holds the same ideology as the 1860 Democrats. This ideology comes complete with a wish to secede, defense of the confederacy and some have gone so far as to wish for or openly discuss the idea of a civil war.
When an uppity black decides to think for themselves and leave the Democrat party, then they learn you're a liar and there is indeed a Democrat plantation as Democrats plant electronically plant a burning cross in his yard, lynch and cancel him

Announce that you are becoming a Republican and learn that you are wrong, there is indeed a Democrat plantation

Repubs are no better than the Dems.
They are to blacks. Democrats give blacks handouts then take away their jobs forcing them to remain dependent on government. Then they personally attack and destroy them if they try to leave the Democrat plantation because Democrats think they own blacks, they are theirs. And they can do with them as they choose.

Republicans just want to have a better economy and let blacks like whites improve their own lot. That is definitely better

Really? What exactly do they give the blacks to not work and why is there a large portion of white people who don't work?

There is No Democratic Plantation
Yes, there is. In my neck of the woods it's called the West and South Sides of Chicago.

Democratic politicians keep the Dark Folk penned-up in two sprawling ghettos and promise them the moon then disappear again after the Dark Folk vote.

Chicago hasn't had a Republican Mayor since 1932, so Black Folk have nobody to blame but the Democrats for their continued localized misery.

It's the same in a large number of other Democrat-controlled $hitholes from coast to coast.
There is no democratic plantation.

How Chicago's White Donor Class Distorts City Policy

  • These big donors are disproportionately white. Though whites make up 39% of the population of Chicago, they make up 88% of donors giving more than $1,000.
  • Chicago donors are overwhelmingly high-income. Though only 15% of Chicagoans make more than $100,000, 63% of donors did and 74% of those giving more than $1,000 did.
  • The donor class is more supportive of budget cuts than average Chicagoans and more opposed to policies that would bolster opportunity.
  • In the council races there were also deep disparities. In these races, 79% of donors were men, 82% were white and 54% had an income over $100,000.
  • Only five overwhelmingly white wards accounted for 13 percent of Chicago’s population, but 42 percent of donors to the Chicago mayoral and aldermanic races.
How Chicago's White Donor Class Distorts City Policy | Demos
LOL. So you're accurately pointing out that wealthy white leftists are in control of the shooting gallery that is Chicago and the terror and murder of blacks that happens every day. And you think that's an argument FOR Democrats?

I agree with you totally that whites are the problem. What you're missing is you're worshipping the ones doing it to you

Oh, you're right. Democrats want everyone to be paid to not work. Not just blacks. It's just that blacks are a higher proportion of the poor, so they are disproportionately affected by your dependency politics that destroy families and communities.

It's more the propaganda side that you target blacks. You're terrified of losing that 90% support, as you already acknowledged. That's why you go after any black who wants to leave the Democrat plantation with sharper knives and bigger clubs

Democrat Welfare Plantation.

You don't have to pick cotton to get your Popeye's Chicken, Colt Malt Liquor and cigarettes. Just shuffle on down to the voting booth every couple of years and vote several times for the filthy ass Democrats.

Their attempts to make the blacks feel guilty for how they vote is most annoying.
Huh. A lily white Democrat who enjoys giving blacks nothing and getting 90% of their vote anyway likes it the way it is. How did that happen?
We were republican for 100 years and all we got was Jim Crow.
Jim Crow was the Democrats. Now you're devolving into pure Democrat programming
And the Republicans had separate but equal which they were treated as non-equals..
Jim Crow, segregation, slavery, the KKK were all Democrat policies. A lie repeated is still a lie

Simple question for you, IM2...has liberal Democratic control been a good thing or a bad thing for blacks living in American urban settings?
If you claim it's been a good thing...then explain Chicago and New York...
The fact is...liberals have used the black vote for decades to keep themselves in power while their policies have made life worse for blacks living in our cities. Do you honestly think Bill De Blasio is good for blacks in New York? His policies are literally killing them by the thousands!
Chicago and other cities are a perfect example of the realities of what elitist leftist Democrat policies have done to black America. Who is way disproportionately terrorized and murdered by gangs? Blacks.

Then look who's doing most of the rioting and taking the police protection away? White leftists.

White leftists are the scourge of humanity. They are the true evil that plagues civilization. Black America are their greatest victims. And it's sad that black America votes for that. Some sort of Stockholm syndrome going on there
Those rich cities are fine examples of people killing each other on the streets to control the illegal drug markets and other illegal activities.. It has nothing to do with Dem vs Repub. because no matter who is in charge it will continue.. Just like it continues in Republican led areas of the US...Why do you always leave out that fact that crime exist in Red areas?
You're a liar. The riots are almost all in Democrat cities. You're full of shit
I never did lie I just didn't tell what you wanted to be said.
Of course you lied. You falsely claimed the rioting is distributed between red and blue cities when it's virtually all in blue cities.

Fact check on Moonbat: Liar, liar pants on fire

“What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy - a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

You can't name one black republican today who would stand before the nation on the Fourth of July questioning and denouncing Americas continuing problem with race. Why? Because opposition to racism has always been a liberal ideal. Frederick Douglass was a progressive and not a conservative.

White conservatives have always opposed racial equality and have always advanced blacks who did not challenge white supremacy. Still today white conservatives love B.T. Washington. Why?

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. ... Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”

This is the dumbest opinion of all time. Washington made this comment in 1911, now let's think about what was going on in those times to understand the stupidity of this statement. But whites loved it because Washington was blaming blacks for the problems created by a legalized system of racial oppression. Today this stupidity manifests itself in Larry Elders, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Jessie Peterson, Ben Carson, Nora Wheatley, Starr Parker or Candice Owens.

This is not about opposition to sucessful blacks, because Oprah Winfrey is more successful than all the people in the prior paragraph combined and she is loved and admired. Barack Obama accomplished what no other black in the history of western civilization has and he is loved and admired. So it is apparent why right wing, anti black, white racism validating blacks are despised and it has nothing to do with success or free shit from democrats.

" The plantation metaphor relies on the misperception that most black Americans are living in poverty. This assumption is demonstrably false; the majority of black Americans are not living in crime-ridden communities or suffering from poverty. But there is a reason why this belief exists. Many Americans might know that the majority of blacks are not poor, but the media constantly bombards the public with images of poor black men and women living on the government’s largesse.

In 2016 22% of blacks fell below the poverty line. That’s a troubling statistic given the fact that about 8.8% of whites were living in poverty. However, the fact remains that the rest of black America is not destitute. While black Americans make up a disproportionate percentage of people using welfare programs, the majority are still not reliant on government assistance and for this reason, the slavery metaphor does not work."



Earlier I quoted Booker T. Washington. Some whites love using his words to counter arguments made by blacks today regarding continuing white racism. To reflect our modern reality, I have modified Washington’s comments.

“There is another class of white people who make a business of keeping the advantages of whites maintained by gaslighting the public into a belief that white racism is now an illusion and that it is whites who face anti white racism. ... Some of these people do not want whites to lose preference, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of white race-"problem solvers" who don’t want America to get well.”

There is no democratic plantation. We were republicans for 100 years. The party failed us. The following statement pretty much sums it up relative to blacks and our experiences with the major political parties. This is a comment from a man who saw the beginning of the first civil rights movement. A man who saw his parents spit on by whites during the days of Jim Crow.

I don’t say that to take sides with democrats, because I'm old enough and have seen MORE than enough to know that NEITHER political party is truly and collectively concerned about the well being of the black citizens of this country. It was no badge of honor to abolish slavery, or pass the civil rights act, the voting act or to even sign affirmative action into law.

Those were the most basic of human rights as well as rights of a tax paying citizen to be treated equally and fairly, so there is ZERO gratitude owed to either party for those so called "historical moments".


The racist history of the Democratic party is well documented. I will not be writing about the 1860 Democratic Party. I find is sad and pathetic that when we bring our grievance to the table, “conservatives” provide lectures to us on how long ago slavery was. Yet as they pander to get blacks to join the modern republican party, we must remember that it was the democrats who were pro slavery. But as I look back over the years since I cast my first ballot (1980), I see a republican party that holds the same ideology as the 1860 Democrats. This ideology comes complete with a wish to secede, defense of the confederacy and some have gone so far as to wish for or openly discuss the idea of a civil war.
When an uppity black decides to think for themselves and leave the Democrat party, then they learn you're a liar and there is indeed a Democrat plantation as Democrats plant electronically plant a burning cross in his yard, lynch and cancel him
Blacks were republicans for 100 years. There is no democratic plantation.
Announce that you are becoming a Republican and learn that you are wrong, there is indeed a Democrat plantation
Blacks were republicans for 100 years. There is no democratic plantation.
Announce you are becoming a Republican and learn that you are wrong, there is indeed a Democrat plantation.
Repubs are no better than the Dems.
They are to blacks. Democrats give blacks handouts then take away their jobs forcing them to remain dependent on government. Then they personally attack and destroy them if they try to leave the Democrat plantation because Democrats think they own blacks, they are theirs. And they can do with them as they choose.

Republicans just want to have a better economy and let blacks like whites improve their own lot. That is definitely better
Really? What exactly do they give the blacks to not work and why is there a large portion of white people who don't work?
Oh, you're right. Democrats want everyone to be paid to not work. Not just blacks. It's just that blacks are a higher proportion of the poor, so they are disproportionately affected by your dependency politics that destroys families and communities
I don't have any dependency politics because I am not a politician nor do I have any position elected to an office that would require as such.. Yet God does have a dependency politics program. I'd like to see the Democratic party platform that states the goals of the party is to pay everyone for not working that is quit the stretch of non-truth you proliferate the board with.

Modern Republicans in a dishonest revision of history, have tried using the liberal beliefs of the original republican party to make claims to black people. For example they will use black republicans from the past to gaslight blacks to claim that the current republican party is the right choice for blacks. Meanwhile they use the past conservatism of the democratic party to claim that blacks today are being fooled by the democrats. That we are being tricked or given free stuff which creates a dependency that keeps blacks voting democrat against their best interest and that our interest would be better served if we joined the republican party. They use black historical figures as props.

Their attempts to make the blacks feel guilty for how they vote is most annoying.
Huh. A lily white Democrat who enjoys giving blacks nothing and getting 90% of their vote anyway likes it the way it is. How did that happen?
We were republican for 100 years and all we got was Jim Crow.
Jim Crow was the Democrats. Now you're devolving into pure Democrat programming
And the Republicans had separate but equal which they were treated as non-equals..
Jim Crow, segregation, slavery, the KKK were all Democrat policies. A lie repeated is still a lie
There were Repubs in the KKK along with Dems after it reorganized and was brought back to life during WWI. Segregation was in every US city and community and it keep out Native Americans and Asians..The Repubs didn't like them anymore than the Dems hated them.

Simple question for you, IM2...has liberal Democratic control been a good thing or a bad thing for blacks living in American urban settings?
If you claim it's been a good thing...then explain Chicago and New York...
The fact is...liberals have used the black vote for decades to keep themselves in power while their policies have made life worse for blacks living in our cities. Do you honestly think Bill De Blasio is good for blacks in New York? His policies are literally killing them by the thousands!
Chicago and other cities are a perfect example of the realities of what elitist leftist Democrat policies have done to black America. Who is way disproportionately terrorized and murdered by gangs? Blacks.

Then look who's doing most of the rioting and taking the police protection away? White leftists.

White leftists are the scourge of humanity. They are the true evil that plagues civilization. Black America are their greatest victims. And it's sad that black America votes for that. Some sort of Stockholm syndrome going on there
Those rich cities are fine examples of people killing each other on the streets to control the illegal drug markets and other illegal activities.. It has nothing to do with Dem vs Repub. because no matter who is in charge it will continue.. Just like it continues in Republican led areas of the US...Why do you always leave out that fact that crime exist in Red areas?
You're a liar. The riots are almost all in Democrat cities. You're full of shit
I never did lie I just didn't tell what you wanted to be said.
Of course you lied. You falsely claimed the rioting is distributed between red and blue cities when it's virtually all in blue cities.

Fact check on Moonbat: Liar, liar pants on fire
I never said the word riot I was responding to a remark about Chicago and the violence on the streets. You are trying to make pudding out of carrots.

Many Americans might know that the majority of blacks are not poor, but the media constantly bombards the public with images of poor black men and women living on the government’s largesse.

Earlier I quoted Booker T. Washington. Some whites love using his words to counter arguments made by blacks today regarding continuing white racism. To reflect our modern reality, I have modified Washington’s comments.

“There is another class of white people who make a business of keeping the advantages of whites maintained by gaslighting the public into a belief that white racism is now an illusion and that it is whites who face anti white racism. ... Some of these people do not want whites to lose preference, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of white race-"problem solvers" who don’t want America to get well.”

There is no democratic plantation. We were republicans for 100 years. The party failed us. The following statement pretty much sums it up relative to blacks and our experiences with the major political parties. This is a comment from a man who saw the beginning of the first civil rights movement. A man who saw his parents spit on by whites during the days of Jim Crow.

I don’t say that to take sides with democrats, because I'm old enough and have seen MORE than enough to know that NEITHER political party is truly and collectively concerned about the well being of the black citizens of this country. It was no badge of honor to abolish slavery, or pass the civil rights act, the voting act or to even sign affirmative action into law.

Those were the most basic of human rights as well as rights of a tax paying citizen to be treated equally and fairly, so there is ZERO gratitude owed to either party for those so called "historical moments".


The racist history of the Democratic party is well documented. I will not be writing about the 1860 Democratic Party. I find is sad and pathetic that when we bring our grievance to the table, “conservatives” provide lectures to us on how long ago slavery was. Yet as they pander to get blacks to join the modern republican party, we must remember that it was the democrats who were pro slavery. But as I look back over the years since I cast my first ballot (1980), I see a republican party that holds the same ideology as the 1860 Democrats. This ideology comes complete with a wish to secede, defense of the confederacy and some have gone so far as to wish for or openly discuss the idea of a civil war.
When an uppity black decides to think for themselves and leave the Democrat party, then they learn you're a liar and there is indeed a Democrat plantation as Democrats plant electronically plant a burning cross in his yard, lynch and cancel him
Blacks were republicans for 100 years. There is no democratic plantation.
Announce that you are becoming a Republican and learn that you are wrong, there is indeed a Democrat plantation

Repubs are no better than the Dems.
They are to blacks. Democrats give blacks handouts then take away their jobs forcing them to remain dependent on government. Then they personally attack and destroy them if they try to leave the Democrat plantation because Democrats think they own blacks, they are theirs. And they can do with them as they choose.

Republicans just want to have a better economy and let blacks like whites improve their own lot. That is definitely better
Really? What exactly do they give the blacks to not work and why is there a large portion of white people who don't work?
Oh, you're right. Democrats want everyone to be paid to not work. Not just blacks. It's just that blacks are a higher proportion of the poor, so they are disproportionately affected by your dependency politics that destroys families and communities
I don't have any dependency politics because I am not a politician nor do I have any position elected to an office that would require as such.. Yet God does have a dependency politics program. I'd like to see the Democratic party platform that states the goals of the party is to pay everyone for not working that is quit the stretch of non-truth you proliferate the board with.
What the hell did you just say? Do you even know?
Take the meds already.

All one needs to do is look at the black community 40 years ago and look at it now after the progs have "helped "them for those 40 years.
Really?

In 1959, blacks had a 55 percent rate of poverty. In 1975, poverty for Blacks was 31.3 percent. In 2016, blacks had a 22 percent rate of poverty. Black poverty has been cut in more than half by prog policies and the reason why most blacks don't vote republicans is that your policies are regressive.
These are the only stats you wish to publish?
There's plenty more. Why wont you lost them?

Simple question for you, IM2...has liberal Democratic control been a good thing or a bad thing for blacks living in American urban settings?
If you claim it's been a good thing...then explain Chicago and New York...
The fact is...liberals have used the black vote for decades to keep themselves in power while their policies have made life worse for blacks living in our cities. Do you honestly think Bill De Blasio is good for blacks in New York? His policies are literally killing them by the thousands!
Chicago and other cities are a perfect example of the realities of what elitist leftist Democrat policies have done to black America. Who is way disproportionately terrorized and murdered by gangs? Blacks.

Then look who's doing most of the rioting and taking the police protection away? White leftists.

White leftists are the scourge of humanity. They are the true evil that plagues civilization. Black America are their greatest victims. And it's sad that black America votes for that. Some sort of Stockholm syndrome going on there
Those rich cities are fine examples of people killing each other on the streets to control the illegal drug markets and other illegal activities.. It has nothing to do with Dem vs Repub. because no matter who is in charge it will continue.. Just like it continues in Republican led areas of the US...Why do you always leave out that fact that crime exist in Red areas?
You're a liar. The riots are almost all in Democrat cities. You're full of shit
I never did lie I just didn't tell what you wanted to be said.
Of course you lied. You falsely claimed the rioting is distributed between red and blue cities when it's virtually all in blue cities.

Fact check on Moonbat: Liar, liar pants on fire
I never said the word riot I was responding to a remark about Chicago and the violence on the streets. You are trying to make pudding out of carrots.
All of it is the white leftists. The violence and shootings on Chicago streets are protected by white leftists. The riots and looting in blue cities are committed by almost all white leftists. It's almost a joke seeing white leftists chasing black Candice Owens out of a restaurant and screaming racists, racists ... at black cops. Almost a joke but it isn't funny.

Then these privileged white leftists import millions of illegal aliens to keep poor black poor.

Then these privileged white leftists target any black that dares think for themselves and tries to leave the Democrat plantation.

Whites are the problem. IM2 just has the wrong ones

Modern Republicans in a dishonest revision of history, have tried using the liberal beliefs of the original republican party to make claims to black people. For example they will use black republicans from the past to gaslight blacks to claim that the current republican party is the right choice for blacks. Meanwhile they use the past conservatism of the democratic party to claim that blacks today are being fooled by the democrats. That we are being tricked or given free stuff which creates a dependency that keeps blacks voting democrat against their best interest and that our interest would be better served if we joined the republican party. They use black historical figures as props.

But there is one problem with this. Here are some words from Frederick Douglass:

“What to the American slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy - a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

You can't name one black republican today who would stand before the nation on the Fourth of July questioning and denouncing Americas continuing problem with race. Why? Because opposition to racism has always been a liberal ideal. Frederick Douglass was a progressive and not a conservative.

White conservatives have always opposed racial equality and have always advanced blacks who did not challenge white supremacy. Still today white conservatives love B.T. Washington. Why?

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. ... Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs ... There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”

This is the dumbest opinion of all time. Washington made this comment in 1911, now let's think about what was going on in those times to understand the stupidity of this statement. But whites loved it because Washington was blaming blacks for the problems created by a legalized system of racial oppression. Today this stupidity manifests itself in Larry Elders, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Jessie Peterson, Ben Carson, Nora Wheatley, Starr Parker or Candice Owens.

This is not about opposition to sucessful blacks, because Oprah Winfrey is more successful than all the people in the prior paragraph combined and she is loved and admired. Barack Obama accomplished what no other black in the history of western civilization has and he is loved and admired. So it is apparent why right wing, anti black, white racism validating blacks are despised and it has nothing to do with success or free shit from democrats.

Fuck Y'all I'm From Texas!
The left continues to hold black citizens in bondage as they continually placate and buy their votes through never ending social engineering and trinkets out of the treasury. Its repulsive but here they are, following up to their past of slavery and segregation and continuing on with their same twisted ideology while desperately projecting and whitewashing history. Its beyond appalling.
This is spoken by a black conservative.

Conservatives, Let’s Stop With The Plantation Talk

So keep being white and lying to yourself.

Are you really using Booker T......saying white racism was alive when some people said it wasnt to TODAY? At his time if people said it was dead, they were retarded, why?

1) Jim Crow and Segregation.....but the dem/left are bringing it back!
2) Lynching was common.....I haven't heard of a lynching since the 60s.....I think it's not an issue

So what are you talking about?

How are black people oppressed? Especially give us a systemic racist issue....

So you feel like like working in the Big House versus the fields means you're not on a plantation. But yes, you are still on the plantation. As far as the Dims are concerned you always will be,
