Aren't white politicians astounding?
I don't know if you remember the first inauguration of Bill Clinton in 1993. He attended prayer service at a Black church in Washington D. C. This wasn't a ploy of his win over the admiration of Black America. When Bill Clinton was unknown to America as the governor of Ark. he attended black churches in this southern state.
Bill Clinton clapped his hands and was joyous during the church service in Washington D.C. it wasn't him I focused
on during the service it was Vice President Al Gore's children, his daughters. I watched in shocked when the camera
zoomed in on them. They didn't try to conceal their racism when the minister spoke they were sitting there scowling
frowning and making awful faces.
When the minister spoke of race relations their nasty expressions only got worse. At one point during the service when the congregation rose to clap their hands as the choir sang, Tipper Gore rose with her daughters and they
exchanged glances and then fell into fits of giggles. I wondered how many other Black Americans were seeing them
as I did that January morning in 1993.
Do you know those ugly white witches did the same at the inaugural parade? They sat there frowning at every black college and high school band that passed their stand. I hated Al Gore and his family from that day forward and when he ran for president in 2000 and I watched Stevie Wonder sing at one of his campaign rallies. I said to myself those SOB'S are just using Stevie Wonder to woo over Black America. Where were the Gore's frowns and scorn when Stevie sang?
Each time I see Gore I just laugh. When he made the documentary "Inconvenient Truth" I found it hard to sit and watch this man. Even though global warming is affecting more non white nations than white countries. He spoke about how the global climate will ultimately affect every human in a negative way in something isn't done to cut carbon emissions. In my mean mind he is so racist in private life he may wishing catastrophic weather will wipe out 2/3's
of the planet's non-white people!
I still can't stand Al Gore. Because he and family showed me the how racist white politicians can be.
if our black vote don't matter why is trump out there dancing for it ?
I had no idea that LBJ was a hard core racist until I found an article online in 2015 reviewing Robert Kessler's book.
How LBJ racially abused his chaueffer and how he spoke vile and racist remarks about blacks.
One of the most iconic photo in black american history is the one where Johnson is handing out ink pens to Dr. King and Roy Wilkins and other great civil rights leaders after signing the civil rights bill.
This is the picture every black child has viewed the past 52 years in their american history books. Just to see LBJ appear to be a liberal minded white who seemed to care for human rights was all too misleading. What an old racially two faced pig he was.
I guess if we could put microphones in all white politicians private settings we would faint after hearing their true feelings about African Americans.
Wasn't Don King something? His slip of the N---word cause a huge stir among social media commentators. I thought the "Stump for Trump" sisters were somewhat buffoonish. Did you see the way Trump and the whites smirked when King made the N-- word slip? Did you catch the latest Trump is beating Hillary in some of the state polls. This is going to be a nose to nose election, I bet it will be like 2000. When Bush and Gore were tied.
I still am planning in case Trump wins. If he does for the first time in American history protests will break out on election night! I am betting America will resemble foreign countries who violently protest leaders they don't want to rule their nations!
We laughed at these people, but with a Trump win. We will be just like them and the whole will laugh at America!!
LBJ? A racist? Of the worst kind! The man's from Texas. Foul mouth? Totally uncouth. I can remember when the announcement came over the school intercom when I was in 8th grade, announcing that Kennedy had been assassinated and Lyndon sworn in, I exclaimed, there's a woman president? I thought they said Linda, but my teacher gently corrected me. lol That was still during a time when Jim Crow was practiced even though the Supreme Court had ruled it illegal 10 years prior. Pressure was put on Lyndon once he took office, to enforce the law even though he didn't want to but was smart enough to read tea leaves and see that Black people were revving up to protest in mass and hurt his chances of a re-election.
Lyndon was a big white man. His presence and blunt way of talking that was backed by his wife's money, intimidated the heck out of his own people in Washington. He was not what they were used to and he was a great negotiator. I heard tell that he would hold cabinet meetings in the Oval Office while sitting on the toilet taking a dump, with the door open.
No, Lyndon was not the second emancipator of Black people. He did what he thought was politically expedient to do when he signed the CRA of 1964, with MLK standing and witnessing. Never because he had an affinity or respect for Black citizens. As the saying goes, you scratch a white liberal and you'll find a racist every time.
If she wins and I start hearing Black people describe her as the FIRST Black woman president, I'm gonna rip my hair out! The fact that Black women are voting for her is painful enough. Please don't poor salt in our wounds. Sheesh!
I would like to qualify that "all white" to be proven history of Democrats having a disposition for racism in their politics. And still I would not say all democrats like poor old grandma, but more likely not all but a majority Democrat politicians. I've always said Hillary is a phony just looking for votes, even before her released emails have proven.
"I will even speak in tongues...." Woo, I would like to see that! ….so exciting .
