This link above represents one of the most irritating aspects of the so-called Black Conservative movement. How a self-righteous, supposedly wise , and successful African-American can believe we are better off with a White president is beyond comprehension.
Kevin Jackson discusses the supposed ‘financial renaissance’ that Ronald Reagan bestowed upon the African-American community. What about Bill Clinton? Like fellow Obama-hating, hooligans Mychal Massie, Allen West, and Larry Elder, Jackson worships, and views the Reagan era from a seemingly incurable condition known as Selective House Negro Syndrome.
Reagan did NOTHING for the African-American community other than fomenting much of the racist attitudes that are STILL prevalent well after his death. I don’t want to hear shit about a fucking butler. I want to discuss an attitude that influenced this senile son-of-a-bitch to stand in front of a crowd of Mississippi mud-inhaling, rednecks championing the issue of states rights, while kicking off his initial campaign for president. Why did he give the speech right around the corner from where 3 student civil rights workers were brutally murdered and buried at the bottom of a swamp? Why did Reagan create the image of a welfare queen(Coded language for Black woman) riding around in a Cadillac with multiple children? Why did he refer to a young Black male as a “young buck?”Why did this ignorant bastard make friends with the creators, and keepers of Apartheid? Why did he oppose sanctions on this repulsively racist and oppressive regime, only to be overruled by Congress? Lets hear these Black folks, who believe they were better off under Reagan, defend his position on NOT wanting to effectively end the evils of apartheid. I’m sure they have an explanation-What the hell could it possibly be?
These spineless noodlebacks, posing as so-called Black conservatives, only want to talk about Reagan myths-At the GetReal, we believe, and will discuss FACTS that prove Reagan was no better for people of color than the bubonic plague. All that really trickled down from his 8-year stint in Washington was a reign of taxation, a rise in racism disguised as pseudo-patriotism, and a deficit that tripled during his watch. Should we even discuss his desire to crush labor unions? Remember when Reagan proclaimed that “deficits don’t matter”-Imagine the teabilly reaction if President Obama made such a statement today.
Like many of the tea drunk assholes who worship him to this day, Reagan played upon racial stereotypes and coded language for political gain. I could give less than a fuck about his ‘generosity’ supposedly shown towards Black teammates at Eureka College, or the extra quarter that he may have blessed his butlers pocket with. I care more about the images of hatred and resentment that he PURPOSEFULLY presented to a constituency of conservative sociopaths that STILL threaten to ruin the multi-colored fabric of this great nation.
Whether he was fed chitterlings, chicken, or just plain mush, Kunta Kinte never would have begged for, or justified the oppression brought forth by his ‘master’-even with Fiddler proudly shucking and jiving Massa’s message loudly in the background of his free mind.~Daryl
