Lately the press has done it's best to crucify Obama's pastor for the snippets of a sermon posted on You Tube. He was called a racist and a person that is not a true patriot. Jeremiah Wright served in the Marines and the Navy.
The real racist is Pat Buchanan.... In response to the Mr. Wright and Obama, Pat had tis to say "Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.
Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.
This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks - with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants.Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?"
If anyone did not pick up on this then what was slavery? It sounds as if my 600,000 ancestors came over here on a pleasure cruise. It was some add my folks responded to? You know learn about Christ and strip away your savagery.
Welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs is the salvation for my people a good gesture from white America.... Those programs were meant for people that are struggling. I have met plenty of people that benefited from these programs. I knew white guy that was getting the Pell grant, GI Bill and going to school for free because his dad is a disable vet. I wonder what Pat has to say in response. I have watched the news and nothing in response to Pat's comments. It is sad when double standards are so blatant and go unheard.
Read is all I have to say..
