Harry Reid & AL Sharpton Demonstrate Hypocrisy in Democratic Racial Politics

January 11th, 2010 by MarkTwain · No Comments

From The GreyFalcon’s Blog:

On Saturday Harry Reid apologized for private remarks he made during the 2008 presidential election that Barack Obama could win because he was light-skinned and that he “did not have a Negro-dialect, unless he wanted one.”  Obama promptly accepted the apology, giving Reid credit on his work for “social justice”.  So it seems that everything is well in Statistville.

Then, on cue, Al Sharpton took it upon himself to accept Reid’s apology too.  Sharpton was in St. Louis for a speaking engagement (people still pay to hear this guy!), and during an interview he said “we will judge him more for his deeds than his words”.


If  high-profile members of the Republican Party had said this, Sharpton would have called for one of his stupid rallies.  Late last year Reid compared himself to the law makers that ended slavery.  Now he is using the term “Negro” to refer to the people he claims to understand so well.

Honestly, we don’t care that much what Dirty Harry calls us, but the term Negro hasn’t been in vogue since the late 1950’s early 1960’s.

Didn’t he get the memo.  The university academic community has decreed that we be called African-American.

We didn’t get the memo either, so we still call ourselves black.  And we urge conservatives to drop the politically correct term “African-American”, because it is a means for ethnocentric malcontents to try to separate black people from te American identity. Read more…
