I was reading some of the comments from the previous thread on this blog, and I was amazed at what a difference just eight years make for black folks. The venom and the vitriol (well deserved I might add) being thrown at the Clintons was surprising in scope and its level of passion.
This is what us black folks do when we think someone in the majority is beating up on one of our own. Regardless of our politics we always seem to go into race protection mode. Because, hey, let's face it; it's really all about self protection if you live in A-merry-ca.
I have been reading quite a few African American blogs and the comments on them for the past few days, and I am pretty convinced that if a general election were held today and Lady Hillary was the dumbocratic nominee, she would lose. Why? Because she would need to have African American votes to win swing states like Michigan,Pennsylvania, and Ohio, and the way things have been going lately, that just ain't gonna happen. Black folks will be staying home (of course we can't vote for the party of David Duke and the fake ass cowboy from California either). And black folks staying home spells trouble for the dumbocrats in a general election.
After all the screaming black folks have been doing by way of blogs and word of mouth, the main stream media has finally caught on to this little story. (They are always a day late and a few dollars short when it comes to reporting on black issues) So Hillary and all the "blue blood" yuppies around her are on to it too. So you know what that means: time to trot out the house Negroes, poverty pimps, and lawn jockeys to tell black folks that everything is OK. Don't abandon the good ship Clinton just yet. There is plenty of mon.....whoops, I mean good will to go around. The couple from Wal Mart country really do love black people, and they didn't mean all the insensitive things that was said by them and their minions about black folks.
It's all a lie of course; they meant it, and I suspect that even their surrogates who have been summoned to the big house to go out and quiet those restless field slaves know they meant it. Honestly, I am finding myself despising the couple from Wal Mart country more and more my damn self. What happened to the "first black President"? Surely he can't be that out of touch with his own people?
Now don't get it twisted; if I saw blow job Bill and the frat boy in a sinking boat, and I had only one life vest to throw, I would sure as fuck hope that the frat boy knows how to swim. It's that deep with the frat boy and I. I think they call it "Bush Derangement Syndrome." Yep, I am one deranged mother fucker when it comes to the frat boy. But I digress.
Hey all I know is that Hillary is hoping that all will be forgiven after the primary season, and the dumbocrats and their black folks will be reunited again. (Where is Peaches and Herb when you need them?) I am not so sure we will be back this time though. I think it all depends on how much they beat up on the "O" man, and how he reacts to it.
Still, it should be interesting. The Clintons have a ton of money to throw around, and church building funds need stocking. The pastor has to get that new Chrysler 300 with the soft top to drive to church in style come Sunday morning. Make no mistake, the Clintons will use their money wisely.
"I think James Brown said it:I'd rather die standing than live on my knees. That is what this is about. It's about being insulted by supposed ' friends'. I said, in the beginning, if this was a Republican, it would be one thing. Because Republicans are SUPPOSED to do this sort of shit. But, to accept this from a Democrat?Unacceptable. Period. And, yeah, I know, 'innocent' comments that we ' imagine'. I know the drill, but unlike 40 years ago, we can speak up now. THAT is one thing our forefathers and mothers obtained for us. As my fellow blogger ABB says about the Clintons and their shills:The Shit Ain't Subtle, and You Ain't Slick. "

Yep, it's ugly already, and the repukelicans haven't even played their race card yet. Willie Horton or Harold Ford anyone?
