Former Black Panther, Mason Weaver says not only has Congressman John Lewis failed his constituents — which consist of most of Atlanta, Georgia — but the “Congressional Communist Black Caucus that has every district they own and control is a ghetto hellhole.”
Weaver challenged Rep. Lewis to “apologize” to the American people for joining the Democratic “party of abuse,” which has “always been the party of the Klan; the party that went to war to keep slaves; the party that’s always been the destruction of black people.”
Rep. Lewis “has gotten rich and his people have gotten poorer,” Weaver said. “The black caucus has gotten more power and influence, and the black people they preside over have gotten poorer — more drugs, more gangs, less businesses, less home ownership, less education, more jails.” - January 17, 2017

Liberal CNN is being sued by blacks for racial discrimination.
The two CNN employees claim that “Dramatic’ differences in pay, harsher evaluations for black males and fewer available promotions are among evidence of the prejudice” in the lawsuit.
Another individual, DeWayne Walker has a $50 million lawsuit against CNN in which is claims the network refused to promote him for 13 years because he is black, instead choosing to promote white employees.
The lawsuit against the liberal network also claims that black employees had to deal with “racial slurs and other prejudices from management.”

For at least fifty years, Democrats have been creating racial strife and divisiveness by lying maliciously for political advantage.
Solely to keep black Americans voting for their party, Democrats endlessly repeat the lie that Republicans are "racist."    It is a destructive and purely political tactic, one that Democrats should be ashamed of.  But they are not. 



It was Democrats, not Republicans, who elected former Ku Klux Klansman, Robert Byrd, to the Senate.  Their excuse:  "He apologized."  Since when did Democrats accept an apology from any Republican for anything?  I don't recall Democrats accepting any public apology from any conservative, ever.








One of history's painful ironies is how often people on the brink of disaster have been preoccupied with trivialities. With a nuclear Iran with intercontinental missiles looming on the horizon, our intelligentsia are preoccupied with calling achievements "privilege" and playing other word games. - Thomas Sowell


"Homicide Trends in the United States, 1980 - 2008" issued by the U.S. Department of Justices' Bureau of Justice Statistics

Males accounted for 89.5% of all "homicide offenders" from 1980 to 2008, but were 49.2% of the population in 2010.

Blacks accounted for 52.5% of homicide offenders despite being 12.6% of the population in 2010.  

White males between 14 and 24 accounted for 6% of the population but 16% of the homicide offenders.  Thus they were 2.67 times as likely to murder as the general population.


Young black males accounted for 1% of the population but 27% of all homicide offenders, making them 27 times more likely to commit a homicide than a random selection would predict, or 10.1 times more likely than their white peers.


The reasons are simple.    Values determine behavior.    Unwed mothers raise boys without fathers in the homes.  Inner city schools are broken, and liberals run them, refuse to fix them.  Criminal conduct is excused with liberal slights of hand, the words "slavery" and "racism".  And the nation accelerates its downward spiral.  Democrats have silenced all discussion.  They simply cry out "racism" at the slightest mention of facts and solutions, however unassailable those facts and decisions may be.

It is despicable and destructive for Democrats to constantly impugn Republicans as "racists."

In 1964, Democrats vehemently opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and filibustered it for fifty-four days to prevent its passage.  President John F. Kennedy called for the legislation on May 11, 1963 for the purpose of "giving all Americans the right to be served in facilities which are open to the public - hotels, restaurants, theaters, retail stores, and similar establishments."
Finally, when votes were taken in both houses, 61% of Democrats in the House of Representatives voted for the Act, while 80% of Republicans voted for it.  In the Senate, 69% of Democrats versus 82% of Republicans voted for racial equality.


Oprah Winfrey was born into abject poverty, the daughter of an unmarried 16-year-old.  She never had a pair of shoes until she was 6 years old.  She is an example of black success for all time, and refutes the liberal narrative of abortion, which liberals so reprehensibly call "a woman's right to choose."  What about the father's choice, and the child's?  Ask Oprah, or Andrea Bocelli.  His mother was advised to get an abortion.  She refused.

Leftist Race-Baiters
by Professor Walter Williams
May 8, 2012
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, in a recent debate with former Republican National Chairman Michael Steele, called the Republican Party the “grand wizard crowd.” Grand wizard is the title given to the leader of the Ku Klux Klan. It is truly misinformed to call Republicans the party of the Klan. Throughout our history, most Klansmen and most racists have been Democrats. Here are a few racist quotes from major Democratic figures.

Chris Matthews is by no means unique among NBC’s race-baiters. After NBC was caught red-handed doctoring George Zimmerman’s 911 call to a police dispatcher, in an effort to make him out to be a racist, Steve Capus, president of NBC’s news division, said it was “a mistake and not a deliberate act to misrepresent the phone call.” That’s a baldfaced lie, for it’s almost impossible to make such a mistake. Furthermore, the producer who allegedly was fired remains a secret.
In August 2009, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer was discussing a tea party rally in Arizona, where it’s legal to carry an unconcealed weapon.
She said: “A man at a pro-health care reform rally … wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip. … There are questions about whether this has racial overtones. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns.” All that her audience was shown were a rifle and pistol strapped to a man’s back. MSNBC concealed the fact that the armed man was black and did not show the interview he gave to the reporter. Brewer knowingly deceived her audience because an armed black man didn’t fit the racial narrative.  

The media is committing malpractice when they buy into the liberal/Democrat storyline that Republicans are racists and Democrats are colorblind. -www.eaglerising.com

[Actually it is far worse than simply "buying into" the racism storyline.   The overwhelmingly predominant liberal media fabricate and perpetuate racist storylines of their own.]

“some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me ... hanging on a tree.” - Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind at a Congressional Black Caucus event in Miami, 8/11/2011
Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., said Perry’s job creation in Texas is “one stage away from slavery.” While appearing on MSNBC, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter referred to Trayvon Martin’s death as an “assassination.” Nutter had better worry about the 118 “assassinations” (murders) in Philadelphia so far this year (2012).
The late Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., a former Klansman, wrote during World War II: “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side. … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

What is important to remember is that these are the opinions of America's leaders of the Democrat Party.  Any Republican making a comment such as these would be vilified by the press and run out of office.  When Democrats say such things, it barely raises an eyebrow.

"You cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent." - Senator Joe Biden

"Mahatma Gandhi ran a gas station down in St. Louis." - Senator Hillary Clinton

Yes, there is racism in America, indeed throughout the entire world.  Racism is practiced by a small minority of people of all colors however, not just white conservatives as Democrats would have you believe.  The result of fifty years of ongoing Democrat race-baiting is to an attitude in black communities, particularly their youth, that they can't get ahead, so why bother to try.   Young blacks don't choose to take advantage of the educational opportunities available to them. Unfortunately these opportunities are reduced both in number and quality due to overwhelmingly Democrats' opposition to school choice and vouchers for inner city school children.

Black children grow up in single-parent families at a horrifying rate.  Our prisons are filled with a disproportionate number of black men who grew up without a father in their home.

All these events were predicted by U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, who wrote in 1965, while working for the Labor Department:

 "The steady expansion of welfare programs can be taken as a measure of the steady disintegration of the Negro family structure over the past generation in the United States"

Moynihan predicted that if the 24% birth rate of single black mothers continued to grow, the result would be devastating.  He could not have been more correct.  A study in 2010 showed the birth rate for single black mothers was 72%.  Statements of fact such as this are instantly labeled "racist" by Democrats whose policies both created and now sustain the pernicious effects.

Black poverty fell 40 percentage points between 1940 and 1960 – a drop that no Great Society antipoverty program has ever come close to matching. Blacks were also increasing their years of schooling and entering the white-collar workforce at a faster rate prior to the affirmative-action schemes of the 1970s than they were after those programs were put in place to help them.

The violent crime that is driving black incarceration rate spiked after the civi-rights victories of the 1960s, not before. - www.studentnewsdaily.com

 Selma, Alabama Mayor George Evans
The racial disparity that persists today is not evidence that too many blacks face the same challenges they did in 1965. Rather, it is evidence that too few blacks – as Selma’s mayor told NPR – have taken advantage of the opportunities now available to them.

Conclusion


"I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years." - LBJ speaking to two governors egarding the Civil Rights Act of 1964, according to then-Air Force One steward Robert MacMillan. Source: Kessler, Ronald (1996). 

"... we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference." - President Lyndon Baines Johnson to Senator Richard Russell, Jr. (D-GA) regarding the Civil Rights Act of 1957.

And so it is to this day.
