We must unite, take our country back

  • Follow Letters

You know I'm kind of like old Forrest Gump. I'm not that smart of a man, but I'm sick of this race issue.

We as black and white people need to see what is happening. Black and white so-called preachers, news media, politicians and Hollywood are using us against one another for their own benefit. The politicians, Democratic or Republicans, don't care about us; they just want our votes. They will tell us anything to get those votes.

We need to take a stand to take our country back. This is our country, and politicians work for us. We are the ones who pay the bills and pay their salaries.

I watch Little House on the Prairie, The Andy Griffith Show and Touched by a Angel, in which people have morals and values, and care about one another no matter what color they might be.

It's time for us to stand together as brothers and sisters and take our country back from the ones who want to destroy it. If we will get down on our knees and ask God to forgive us, He will heal our land.

"Unite," he cries, while watching ol' Andy bend the laws to fit his hillbillie population in Mayberry USA. Good grief! That was not real life! Only one minority ever appeared on that show! How can we unite when some folks are living in fantasy land? And then to talk about "God forgive us" and expect to be considered serious. Ha! Please go back to Fantasy Island where dreams may come true, but in this realty show called "life" forgiveness is based on deeds, not some ideas put into people's head by 1960s sitcoms.

Term limits for congress

Term limits for congress would help,,,the media has their own agenda, called ratings..Congress should go on the same health plan they vote for us. Maybe they could get it right if that happens.

justus.....couldn't help
Unpublished

justus.....couldn't help yourself could you? The point here is simple...a man's character is formed by the company he keeps and the books he reads (or tv shows he chooses to watch). Point here being that instead of allowing others to rule us blindly we should stand tall and be a nation of people with great character and then we will excel.

The race issue will go away when white people start consistently treating black people as their equals.

The way that we get our

The way that we get our country back begins with the 2010 elections and culminates in 2012 when we vote to expel the incompetent closet muslim, who has caused so much destruction thus far. He needs to stay in this country and actually accomplish something positive, and lay off of the "bowing" practice!

Rhetor, I agree. The first step is to stop treating black people like pets that need to be taken care of. Stop ALL subsidy to those physically able to support themselves. Raise the expectations of black people so they can join the American dream.

The race issue will go away

The race issue will go away when black people cease trying to shove their culture down our throats. Has anyone noticed that Mexican, Indians, Cubans, Asians and other minorities come to this country and get along very well. They study in school, they do their jobs and strive to make the American Dream theirs. And they succeed. Blacks on the other hand are so busy trying to side step hard work and throw out the race card every time they don't get their way to ever really get ahead. Obama and Oprah are prime examples of blacks who refused to become a part of the gutter culture, and they became respected leaders and went straight to the top of their race.
Just4us......get a grip on real life, if you can get your head out of your urban cultural rat maze you might just become a part of a success story.

Stan, what you fail to

Stan, what you fail to address in your rant is that the government in place was voted on by its citizens (albeit electoral college). So I'm a little confused about your "take government back" statement. It wasn't stolen from us, at least not in this last election.

Yosemitesam you got it

Yosemitesam you got it exactly right IMHO. Blacks are the only ones that came here maybe against their will but what was going to happen to them if we didn`t? Their black captors would have enslaved them all or killed them on the spot. We should all get rewards for a humanitarian action. Blacks still expect us to take care of them to this day. They have no one but themselves to blame for their standings in the community and the world. I have met and consider friends many blacks who are not on the take and they manage quite well. Put some of that attitude into WORK, get a J-O-B!!!!

Oh, and justus4, ever been to

Oh, and justus4, ever been to the hill country? Probably not. There, you get work by being good at it instead of being a "token". There is little room for scams and drug deals (changing now with the influence on younger mountain folk) so blacks don`t do so well in an atmosphere where you work or you don`t eat. People took care of one another because it was necessary, not Gov`t ordered. There`s a lot of "yankees" up there now so it may just work for "minorities" in the hills. Don`t expect any help from me, I earned all I have...

Well, once again the liberal

Well, once again the liberal howlers like justus and notreally are rearing their collective heads to parrot the mantra, and label anyone who does not agree with them as a nutcase, or worse...a conservative! Nothing to add to the conversation, and nothing sensible to say. Just more of the same old tired name calling that they do so well. The truth is that most of us long for a return to a time when this country was made up of mostly people who had families, of all ethnic backgrounds, and jobs, and a bright future, and we were all proud of what our parent's generation had accomplished. We were the greatest nation in the world then and we were actually proud to be americans. Yes, television is always a welcome escape from "The Real" world for many. An escape from terrosism trials, Jihadist killings of americans, out of control gov't spending, 10.2% Unemployment, etc. Given a choice, I'll choose Mayberry EVERY time.

How can you have an honest

How can you have an honest conversation about race when you have people that seem to be totally ignorant about the history of race in this country especially in the South. When you have posters like thefederalist, jb5365, yosemitesam espousing the the same kind of white supremacy rethoric that was used before 1965. They ignore the reality that minorities have indeed have improve themselves mainly through ambition and not through government programs. They say it's the black man's fault that he was enslaved as though the african built the ships that departed America's coast inviting the white man Y'all come and get what y'all want. These bigots seem to know more about the black man's condition and what's good for him and very little about the systematic and institutionalized racism that still a part of Black life in America. So as long as there's people like these, an "honest" discussion about race will continue to be allusive.

According to the Combined

According to the Combined Federal Funding Report 2008, whites collected welfare & medicaid ten times the rate of blacks nationally. It is also very interesting that farm subsidies are exclusively paid to white farmers regardless of their income. So would some of you southern white racist help me understand who really being taken care of at tax payer expense? "Fixed News", I meant Fox News sure has a large population of uneducated white fools in Augusta. There is not one southern white idiot that can identify a social problem central to blacks that I can not immediately prove whites commit the same exact offenses. The problem is that southern whites live by a double standard, especially Conservatives. Pick any topic and I will prove white folks are the most evil race of people known to mankind. Teen pregnancy, murder, theft.... If any white person that feels they can prove blacks are the social deviates corrupting the US, I'll prove ten stories right here today that whites are even worst... I know all the racist are not going to call me up on this because I might show their mother or sisters in the housing projects getting a lesson on that special type of manhood. WINK, WINK..

Corgimon, what is your point?

Corgimon, what is your point? That is, can you explain in some detail? Can you elaborate? What do you know about this program? Exactly how many black men does it target? Are you saying a grant to help poor black kids to have a chance against white supremacy is an example that racism no longer exists?

As far as

As far as richmoncountyresident is concerned, he seems to be either dumb or stupid. I've read his posts before. Anything he posts is either sophomoric and sarcastic. Note his reference to "the dark ages". [filtered word]hole.

Well, if you sit back and think a minute you start realizing that if there were no blacks here most of the problems in the US would disappear just as quickly. "laking" it`s "either, or"; not "either, and ". Both you and CParker must have missed the days of the grant. You`re in a part of the world where mostly English is used for communication, try using it...
