Call me “self-hating”, fine. I don’t give a shit as I’m making an observation here.
They call black conservatives “buffoons”. Sorry but none of us can come anywhere near topping Democrats like Maxine Waters, John and Monica Conyers, Gwen Moore, Sheila Jackson Lee, Dianne Wilkerson, Jesse Jackson Jr., Ray Nagin, Anita Bonds, Marion Barry, William Jefferson, Hank Johnson, Carol Moseley Braun, and feel free to add to the list.
People have perceptions about what this city is becoming… and they want this council to remain black, and if they don’t get out there and put black folks in there, there will be a white city council … That is a rough thing to say, but that is the truth.
— George T. Johnson, head of AFSCME local 20
If you look at any major city (or country) run by blacks, there are a few things they all have in common: higher-than-average fiscal mismanagement and potential insolvency rates, higher-than-average failing schools, higher-than-average poverty, higher-than-average single parent households, higher-than-average abortion rates, higher-than-average crime and incarceration rates, and since they’re also one-party ruled, a case can be made that liberal black Democrats are much better at taking care of themselves and those around them than the people they’re supposed to be serving.
If the fact that not one district run by a black Democrat is anywhere near a national norm in any category, is it my fault for bringing it up or will there ever come a day when blacks (and the white-guilt liberals who make socioeconomic excuses for them) will elect competent politicians who will inspire, know how to count, not blame everything on racism, and not make promises they don’t intend on keeping?
