Guthrie, a white
man, was supposed to know more about racism!
was also the same Guthrie who said "If you want to learn
something, just steal it—that's the way I learned from Lead
Lead Belly was a
black folksinger. He sang more about racism but is
less remembered today than Woddy Guthrie.
Sadly, some blacks
wouldn't notice Guthrie's self admitted theft. But
they are quick to put him on a pedestal just so they could
call Trump a racist!
The other problem
with citing Guthrie as a defender of the Black
political view is he belonged to a generation when there
were more virulent white racist politicians around who made
laws that impacted harshly on the average black life than acts by
Trump, the businessman's father.
Sadly, why was muse
Guthrie silent on the far too many Democrats who were
racists during his era? I shall name a few for the fair-minded:
Albert Gore, Sr,
a Democrat, father of former V. P. Gore of the 2000
presidential race against Bush. Gore, Sr. opposed the
Civil Rights Act of 1964. Bush became the racist
Gore, Jr, the champion of Black rights.
a Democrat, mentor of former President Bill Clinton
and one of the authors of the Southern Manifesto, an
anti Black Civil Rights document. He fillibustered and
voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. His
mentee Bill Clinton, became our eponymous first Black president of the
Sen. Robert Byrd of
West Virginia, a Democrat, was a KKK chieftain. a
fillibuster of the 1964 Act and a mentor of Hillary in
her own words. (Link
to hear Hilarry's own words). She has become the white
hat to the "racist" Trump in this presidential race of
Sen. Richard Russell, a Democrat, leader of
the southern opposition to civil rights movement,
filibursted and voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
George Wallace of Alabama, a Democrat, was a
darling of the Jim Crow crowd.
Bull Connor of
Birmingham, Alabama, a Democrat, was an icon of
opposition to the Civil Rights movement of the 60s.
There are many more
Democrat names that qualify for the above list. All of the
remained Democrats to their last breath and none became
Republicans as the myth makers would have us believe.
In an article
you might not know about the 1964 Civil Rights Act,”
written April 10, 2014, by Alicia W. Stewart and Tricia
Escobedo, CNN, the workings and significance of
the Bill were revealed. This is a must read, considering our current view on
that Republicans are racist.
Malcom X, who was
said in the above article to have met with Martin Luther King, Jr at the passing
of the Bill in Senate, later warned about the herd
mentality of Black politics,
"You're A Political Chump!"
The black vote for
Democrats then was around 70%. Today it is about 90%.
In all this,
note the damage the one party leaning penchant has caused so
far. A) A loss
of political leverage. B) Weakening of the cry against real
racism. 3) The dilution of real Black Civil Rights by the
insistence on diversity.
The point here is
are we putting liberal issues above our own interests?
There are two
candidates for this election. It is either Trump or
There have been
attempts to forge moral equivalencies between Trump and
their failings. But these attempts wouldn't hold for the rational mind.
You can argue that
private businessman Trump took advantage of exemptions on
taxes and the law on bankruptcies. But, note he hid nothing from the law.
But what law
permitted Secretary of State Hillary to have a private
What was the need for her to have this server against the
law and then to have to wipe 30,000 files clean off it?
Nixon, in the
Watergate scandal, put a 20 minute gap, on an analogue audio
tape. That act was seen as the “smoking gun”. Consequently,
he was forced out of the presidency.
Here we have a lady
who wiped over 30,000 files clean off a server, worse offenses
than Nixon and deeper character flaws as revealed by
Wikileaks and she is still running for the Presidency!
Are we still in the United States
or back in some Third World country?
Well, we should
accept Hillary and all her faults because Trump is a racist
and she is an Angel!
If corncerns of Hillary and
the Clinton Foundation activities in Haiti have anything to
do with charity, then there is more to the depravity in the
charge of racism assigned to her by the people of Haiti than
our kinfolks care to admit.
Failing to label her
behavior in Haiti as racist means, all the cries we make
against racism denote nothing!
Hillary cheated on
Haiti and cheated in the debates (She was fed questions
before hand.) But I am not finished.
You can be an
ideologue for Democrats. This will not necessarily and
automatically make you a champion for the Black cause
any more than it should diminish your opposing countryman's
a Black nationalist.
Your liberal stance only makes you a black liberal.
that must be asked of a black nationalist should be about
the issues. A reading of a view of a platform that says
Hillary has more to benefit Blacks than what Trump offers is
what would make your case.
requirement is a
simple clear cut objective.
So no insults or name calling,
And don't bother to ask why I won't vote for
Hillary. There are enough Blacks out there who would
vote for any Democrat over a Republican and have been doing
so for the past 50 years or more.
For these fellows, I
ask they only have to listen to Malcolm X, not I.
