Re: "If the KKK opposes gay marriage, I would ride with them."

MBM ·
The Rev. Gregory Daniels is a baffling idiot. His statement sounds almost as preverse as the actions of the NAACP who in 1977 defended the KKK in Dayton, OH while irrantly proclaiming that every American deserved a fair chance... IMHO most of these Rev Chicken Wing, Pastor Pork Chop types make me sick with their twisted rhetoric. They mislead the congregations who cling to their every word while adhering to a flair of un-sense of history. Amazing.

Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

Please don't let that article detract from the real issue. It's just some FYI stats. The real issue remains... Of the 56 bowl teams, Black athletes got them there. Check out March Madness, and you'll get a similar observation. The NCAA should be more supportive of the black community, seeing as how the black community is a significant source of revenue. The NAACP should be more concerned about the FREE LABOR as well.

Re: Reparations v. Eliminating Race Specific Claims

Some suggest that they fear that if reparations are awarded that it will prevent African Americans from any future right to legal redress against discrimination. Aside from whether you think this argument makes sense or not, would you agree to a reparations award (of an agreeable amount) if the "cost" was any future opportunity to pursue legal remedy under a race specific claim? You could sue under any race neutral Constitutional protection but any race specific laws would be removed from...

I know I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but Clinton got those applause because he deserved them. The only thing Bush deserves is a swift kick in the teeth, and no body knows that better than African-Americans. He should have done what he did with the NAACP in 2004 and just declined the invitation. Or, we could have learned our lesson and not invited him at all. I don't think Ms. King would have missed him.
