Thought I would share this. It has some valid facts. Take it how you want.
BUCHANAN TO OBAMA
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in
America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way
conversation.. White America needs to be heard from, not just
lectured to…. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its
convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black
folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa
in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were
introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest
levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.. Wright
ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than
white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ‘ 60s
on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing,
Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned
Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the
African-American community into the mainstream. Governments,
businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against
white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and
quotas — to advance black applicants over white
applicants.Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and
individuals all over America have donated their time and money to
support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and
nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??
Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let
him go to Altoona ? And Johnstown , and ask the white kids in
Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League
recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids…?
Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime
and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times
those of white America ? Is it really white America ‘s fault
that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70
percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some
cities has reached 50 percent?
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a
failure of the black community itself?
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime,
and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama
aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of
the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the
Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more
common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139
times as common in the first three years of this decade as the
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana
Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be
hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that
are real, we hear nothing.
Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40
years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed
around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!
