Cliven may not be the most eloquent person regarding the English language but I don't see where he is incorrect in his observation. As long as the Democrat party keeps the black people as their own indentured servants Cliven has a point.
To the ear of a leftist Cliven is a racist. To my ear he has keen observation skills. Or is he wrong? Do those people "sitting on the porch" actually have something to do? Are they not on "government subsidy"? Do they not "abort their children" and are their young men not "in jail"? How about we take a poll in Chicago, Newark or Detroit and find out if Cliven is a rascist?
And before anyone starts calling me a racist remember my first wife was a Jew and my current wife is Asian. I haven't a racist bone in my body but when someone says I must treat some person special just because he's a certain race, ANY race, I say they are the racists. Affirmative Action is a racist policy, pure and simple. A society cannot "make" some people equal by making other people unequal.
I certainly don't think you're racist, Hoagie. I've met you. You're one of the nicest, coolest guys I know.
Despite his inarticulate lingo, one can certainly say Bundy has a point about gov. assistance. However, the WTF? line certainly is the reference to being "better off as slaves." And picking cotton?? Does Bundy know we're no longer in the 19th/early 20th century?
While I certainly don't agree with Bundy's belief that African-Americans are "better off as slaves," one could make the argument that he has a point about government assistance. I haven't a racist bone in my body, either. To me, the real racists are those who think minorities are too stupid to do things on their own, so they "need" the government to help them. I also agree that affirmative action is an outdated policy and that you can't be equal if everyone else is unequal.
