Black Rights or Black Privilege

The Alabama Black Caucus, obviously a racist group judging by their name is calling for Obama's Secretary of Education to cancel an appearance at a Confederate named school, Robert E. Lee High School. The reason given is that the schools principal and the school itself publicly opposed M L King's Selma march in 1965. Damn the that principal must be an old, old man by now for unless my math is wrong that was 45 years ago. As best as I can remember many member of the National Democratic Party also opposed that march, so just maybe the Black Caucus should protest any future meeting of that organization.

I remember those days vividly and the efforts of King to gain some type of equality for his people. I don't recall him ever calling for special treatment for his black brothers. I don't recall him ever saying that schools, streets, counties, and even some cities bearing the names of former Confederates be changed. I don't recall him ever saying that playing Dixie at a Friday night football game offended him---hell even President Lincoln requested that tune be played on the occasion of Lee's surrender. The Black Caucus is not about Robert E. Lee High, its about black power and black privilege and certainly not black rights for they already have them.

Alabama Black Caucus Wants Education Secretary to Cancel Appearance at Confederate Named School

Alabama's Legislative Black Caucus on Saturday called on U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to cancel a planned appearance at Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery.

State Rep. Alvin Holmes said the school and its principal publicly opposed the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Selma-Montgomery march in 1965. Holmes said it was "insulting" to King and civil rights protesters that President Barack Obama's top education aide was scheduled to appear at the school Monday. read story at FOX News

If you're old enough to remember MLK then you'll probably remember the TV sit-com "Julia"... Diahann Carroll played a young black nurse... I'll never forget the beginning episode when sha called a white doctor's office to get a job... After the doctor hired her unseen, she said "I want you to know I'm black" to which he replied "have you always been black, or are you just trying to be fashionable"?

Damn, I can't wait until it becomes fashionable to be white again...

These liberal blacks are obsessed with color, pointing out differences and how they think that they deserve special privileges. WE are all equal Americans and I am sick of this infatuation with each others' differences.

Let me get this straight, they are protesting something that happened in 1965? It is people like the Alabama Black Caucus who will never allow America to get passed our past. These people are stuck in the past and rufuse to see all of the gains that have been made since 1965.

These black activists are like leftie and gay activists, we thought they wanted equality, meanwhile what they really want is superiority.
