Louis Farrakhan, you, sir, are proof positive that the flames of the racial divide are being flamed. Â As the descendant of European immigrants who came to the United States to escape tyranny and the attempted genocide that was the Irish Potato Famine (see my rant on that here), it is with complete disgust for your version of events that I share what you had to say about former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani, and the memory of so many that came before us – all of us – in forging this nation at Saviours’ Day on February 22.
My fellow Americans, prepare to be REALLY, REALLY angry. Â The first three minutes should do it.
How shall we correct this record:
- Rudy Guiliani grew up in Flatbush in Brooklyn. Â There’s nothing privileged about that, white or otherwise. Â Crackers come from Georgia. Â Please, learn some geography.
- Before the boll weevil took its toll on cotton, those fields were tended and harvested by black and white side by side. Â Ask those who did it. Â Yes, it was hot, miserable work, and everyone who could escaped it.
- The 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution were passed and ratified by Republicans who were at the time largely white men. Â History revisionism does not change that.
- Homelessness among war veterans is not a one race problem. Â It is a national disgrace that needs to be addressed, but EVERYONE is complicit in it.
Under normal circumstances, none of us should ever give Louis Farrakhan the time of day. Â However, when he insults the people of this nation and starts spouting lies, and tearing at the character of a dedicated public servant, he deserves to be exposed. Â This is just one more American Islamic convert coming to Barack Obama’s rescue. Â Rep. Keith Ellison, a dangerously well spoken muslim from Minnesota, also carried Obama’s water this week. Â Keep an eye out for this.
