The Democrats' Own Brand Of Racism

The Democrats' Own Brand Of Racism
By Star Parker

Watching the recent PBS-hosted Democratic presidential debate at Howard University, I was impressed with the uniformity of the messages communicated to the mostly black audience. I felt like each candidate was reading from one script, making a nuanced change here and there so there'd be some differences between them.

Every problem -- black unemployment, education, crime and incarceration, AIDS -- had one answer. More government programs and spending. There is simply nothing you could have asked any of these Democrats that would not have gotten this same answer. It's like blacks do not exist as individuals. According to this Democratic presidential line-up, which got plenty of encouragement from the audience at Howard, there is not a single way that black lives could be improved by enhancing individual freedom and personal responsibility.

I am sick to death of blacks playing the race card! When will they EVER stop trying to get leverage of this?

Here's another very good Black writer who gets covered only in the conservative blogs. I guess that's just another example of the PROGRESSIve, OPEN MINDED Liberal mind, huh? "if she doesn't say what we like, she's out"

The second I hear a race card, I turn off my hearing and my feelings. Ms. Parker says it right. (no pun intended!) Very interesting and informative article.
