Re: Michele Bachmann Thinks Slavery Times Were Bet
In Response To: Re: Michele Bachmann Thinks Slavery Times Were Bet ()
Thank you for your considered thoughts and references. I hear you and they are not lost on me.
However, do you really think that Republican Conservative Bob Vander Plaats and Michele Bachmann were taking the conversation in the direction of your comments?
Many folks are going to interpret the statement to mean that Black children were better off during American Slavery than they are under the leadership of Barack Obama - the first BLACK President of the United States. They will interpret this to mean that Barack Obama - the first BLACK President of the United States made things worse for Black children; therefore don't vote for him in 2012!
Plaats & Bachmann don't give a rat's patoot about studies on slave families and communities; they are focused on garnering votes for their party by any means necessary. That's my point.
Peace & Blessings,
