The following rant has nothing to do with politics. You see what this rant about pure and simple is about bigotry and racist attitudes. Now I don’t know what exactly some members of the Republican Party are trying to pull with this character assault on urban blacks in this country but it has to stop. I fully acknowledge that the ideas I am about to rail against are held by few in the party but those who do hold them have the loudest speaking voice right now.
You see last week while speaking in Iowa GOP candidate Rick Santorum said that he doesn’t want to “make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.” Well how kind of you Ricky. Thanks for first of all portraying all black people as jobless mooches who would rather wait for you to kindly give us a pittance and secondly acknowledging that of those in dire straits they are only black. So good job White America, glad you guys made. As you can see this was quite the absurd statement to make as I am sure there were white people in that audience that need and accept government assistance.
After hearing that I decided to dismiss it as he has bigger problems in regards to his “Google problem.” I won’t tell you want it is, just note it is disgusting. Then right on cue good ol’ Newt Gingrich steps up his assault. Earlier this year this beacon of morality suggested that children in low income areas in order to give them a sense of hard work as no one apparently works hard in these communities the children should be janitors and clean their way through school. Well now Newt is saying that we don’t want to work, that the unemployed black people of this nation want food stamps and not paychecks.
I could sit here and wax on and on about how these two are idiots, and believe me I really want to. But I will let the facts speak for me. When it comes to welfare in this country Whites receive 34 percent of federal food assistance benefits, African-Americans 22 percent, and Hispanics 17 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Try another race baiting topic to keep yourselves in the news gentlemen. Time for this one to die.
