Please Show Your Support For Senator Read

The Republicans and other racist’s entities are trying to use a statement that was made by Nevada, Democratic, Senator Reid, comparing it to a statement that was made several years ago by Trent Lott.

Here is what Senator Reid Said in a yet to be released book entitled:”Game Change”, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Obama is the nation’s first African-American president.

Now analyze this statement in conjunction with the following historical ..

The unsuccessful attempt by Frederick Douglass to win the presidency in 1860 against Abe Lincoln. (Too Dark Skinned, notable proponent of freeing the slaves).

The Unsuccessful attempt by The Reverend Jessie Jackson to win the presidency in 1984 and in 1988. (Too Dark Skinned Obviously Afro centric, notable for preaching progressive rhetoric for African American Causes).

The unsuccessful attempt to win the presidency in 1995 by Alan Keyes, (A Rigid Religious Catholic Conservative Republican), who ran on these values, which the Republican Conservatives live and breathe by).Too Dark Skinned to win.

The unsuccessful attempt by The Reverend Al Sharpton to win the presidency in 2004. . (Too Dark Skinned, Too Dedicated to African American Causes).

The successful election of the first African American President, Senator, Barack Hussein Obama.

Light Skinned, Caucasian Mother, Law Professor who speaks like a law professor and not a social activist. Avoids discussions of race whenever and wherever possible. Does not speak the language of the ghetto as a rule, but can do so on demand.

Now let’s examine Trent Lott’s Statement of December 10, 2002.

“I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years, either,”

Lott, R-Mississippi, made the comment on Capitol Hill during a 100th birthday celebration for Thurmond, who is retired in 2002 after nearly 48 years in the Senate. The comment was broadcast live on C-SPAN.

Thurmond ran as the presidential nominee of the breakaway Dixiecrat Party in the 1948 presidential race against Democrat Harry Truman and Republican Thomas Dewey. He carried Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and his home state of South Carolina, of which he was governor at the time.

During the campaign, he said, “All the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, our schools, our churches.”

Thurmond’s party ran under a platform that declared in part, “We stand for the segregation of the races and the racial integrity of each race.”

Thurmond eventually moved away from his segregationist position and went on to the longest career in Senate history. He retired as a Republican representing South Carolina.

One of these statements is a statement of fact; the one that Senator Harry Reid made in support of President Obama.

A dark skinned African American who spoke like a “Black Man”, (although I have yet to know what speaking black means), but I think according to “White America”, and many in “Black America”,, it means not having proper command of the English Language and its execution, then the 2008 Presidential Election would most likely not have ended in the successful election of the First African American President in history.

Trent Lott’s Statement was a statement of support for the hateful racist and segregationist practices, (including lynching), inflicted upon African Americans, (I’m sorry, coloreds), in the deep south in which he was implying that if the rest of the country had voted for Strong Thurman for president, then we “Blacks”, would have been kept in our place, (which was on the plantation in servitude to them).

This is a big difference.

Do I think that Harry Reid should resign for telling the truth? Hell No!

Do I think that Trent Lott should have resigned after his statements? Hell Yea!

I love those who love me and hate those who hate me, and I am not ashamed of that fact.

However, the majority of politicians in this country, (rather they be Democrats, Republicans, or other), play this game of politics by capitalizing on the mistakes made by humans of the opposite party.

And just like the situation that we have now, it never really addresses the real issues and the real solutions to the problems that create the problems in the first place.

So I am just asking all who don’t have at the heart of their intent, political sabotage, or racism as a motive, to please ignore this sudden love that the Republican Party, with all of their all white this and all white that, has realized that it has for the minorities of this country,( including African Americans).

Here’s the real deal:

This is just another orchestrated attempt by the Republicans to make something out of nothing against a man who is already under attack by the people of his own state of Nevada, where President Obama received 47 to 53% of the vote, depending upon which poll you review.

  The same man who just happens to be the most effective Senate Leader for “Healthcare Reform” in history.

These Republicans did not care about African American Sensitivities last year, last month, last week, nor will they ever, at the rate that they are going.

So please! Do not fall for these attempts by the republicans to protect the payoffs that they are receiving from the “Health Insurance industry”, The Healthcare Industry”, The Pharmaceutical Industry, or the Dialysis Industry.

 Harry Reid continues to support Civil Rights, Healthcare Reform, and President Obama.

Every year over 40,000 people die as a result of not having healthcare insurance.

We must remember that racism has always been and is still a reality in America, and will probably remain that way for a long time to come, if not forever.

However, we must nail Healthcare Reform, and reelect President Obama in 2012, in spite of this fact, just like we did in 2008.

Freedom, Justice and Equality for all, must become a reality in the United States of America, if it is going to grow and prosper as a nation of people, United!

And Michael Steel, you and others like you who cow tow to the racist on FOX, are not even considered to be “Black”, by the people’s opinion of this matters most, “Black People”. So what you say as it relates to us, has no meaning or value to us as people.

But it won’t be long, I told you that those who you defended with your life against Barrack Obama in 2008, were going to turn on you.

Here they come Michael!
