Re: House of Representative is like a Plantation...

Faheem ·
There is no watering over her analogy, there is nothing she can say or for that matter you can say that can juxtapose rich folk and bureaucracy with the way Plantations were run. While Plantation reality contradicted parts of the constitution, local and state law were in accordance with Plantation life. Plantation realities were far more than violations of parts of the constitution and I do not believe her analogy makes sense and lessens the impact of the role of Plantation in our...

It is not an never was "terrorists" that they intended to have under serveillance in the first place, it that had been the case, we already had laws in place to accommodate such a need. This administration just knows that 99.9% of Americans do not know what "McCarthyism" is or how it was that Hitler and Stallan became to be in dictatorship power in the first place; --through dependence on the ignorance and indifference of the masses initially.

That's all BS. It all boils down to mathematics and numbers in a democracy. No matter if we had full voter participation on the behalf of blacks, we cannot squeeze more than our 13% out and 13% is simply not enough leverage to push our interest and agenda to the forefront. That's true even in the Democratic Party. The white vote is roughly split between the two parties evenly. There are 285 million people in this nation, 70% of whom are non-Hispanic whites.
