ATTENTION ALL BIGOTS:
Please Keep Your Racist Rants to Yourself!
Last week, it was Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy who said Black people are “better off as slaves” and “they put their young men in jail because they never learned how to pick cotton.” This is the same man that hasn’t paid grazing fees to the federal government in more 20 years and has rung up a $1 million tab to Uncle Sam. Still, Cliven (what a name) used his 15 minutes of fame to spew racist rants about “the Negro” in an interview with the New York Times.
I had a short, crazy conversation with my colleague Shirley Husar, a Black conservative and Republican, trying to convince me that Bundy may have a point! Huh? In her Washington Times column, she says “there may be some nuggets of truth” for the problems Black people face today. She feels Black communities have suffered under government subsidy programs, which have failed to help people stand on their own two feet.
Shirley, stop it. On a girl’s night out, some of your conservative views can really put a damper on things for a liberal like me! I’m just too far left, and we’ll never see eye to eye on some things!
