In Response To: Re: Michele Bachmann Thinks Slavery Times Were Bet ()
Obama Bashing aside; let me go on record and state in no uncertain terms that I would NOT be okay with their assertion! I would NOT for one second let any Black child, teenager, student, parent, adult, senior or Ancestor ponder the notion from Plaats and Bachmann that things/life for Black children was better during American Slavery than during the 21st century in the United States!
If any civil rights leaders, clergy, or public figure of African descent made the same statement, I would feel the same way and I would take them to task as well. Let's put it in another context. If any person of considered influence on a community, city, state or nation made the same statement, I would feel the same way and I would take them to task as well. If you made the statement, I would take you to task.
I'll defer the Republican vs Democrat vs Other Political Parties debate to others. For now, I'm just focusing on the published statement about Black Children. Folks need to know out of what context that statement is coming from. These inferences from these politicos find their way into opinion poles, op-ed pieces and campaign speeches; and people need to be aware. That's why I brought it up.
If you do not believe it is the responsibility of any political party to address the social needs that are impacting the African American families, then you should be outraged at the 'Plaats and Bachmann' dog and pony show. Instead, you challenge me - and that's OK. I can handle it.
You say it is our responsibility to address these issues. What the hell do you think I'm doing? The issue is addressed.
Peace & Blessings,
