The typical statement " I'm not racist. I got BLACK friends." Yea right! How many white politicians have bankrupt a government? MANY!!! There has been so many white politicians through the years caught with their hands in the cookie jar. And white politicians have the CROOKEST among them all. So. I ain't surprised one bit. He had backpedalled real hard. And then the black guy had to say "he still my friend." WTF. SMFH. Now that's a coon. But!

Quote by ER: "'A path to citizenship...."??? Is that "amnesty" by another name??? Republicans don't have a plan because the GOP remains a long way from consensus. The party remains divided over whether it will support a path to citizenship for the undocumented -- an issue that could cause problems and legislative delays in the Republican-controlled House and the fact that their base (Tea Party) won't support it because if House Republicans support a bill that includes citizenship for the...

Unfortunately the only way to fight back is to Vote. This is going to continue until Americans stand up and take their country back from the clutches of corporate greed and their political puppet politicians. Republicans are not going to stop until they turn this country into a bleak Dicken's novel, where the 98% are the peasants at each other's throats for any crumb the 1% has even a whim to throw at them.

A better idea would to make HBCUs tuition free, we are the people that need jobs anyway and only way to get that is to waste your life away in an institution that only gives you debt and hope.
