A Black Mark Against Intelligence

Some black people have achieved equality with whites in at least one area: stupidity.  On Monday the South Carolina Chapter of the NAACP held a rally on the steps of its capitol to celebrate Martin Luther King Day.  The day before they constructed a large black box around the statue of George Washington.

Why?  Some said it was supposed to hold a large banner which never quite got created, others said the group didn’t want to offend some members because Washington owned slaves, a few said they had done it for years and it was no big deal.

No big deal? A black rally on the steps of the South Carolina capitol slighting Washington on MLK day? That’s a big deal!

For over a century, the NAACP has been one of the most respected groups advocating equal rights for all Americans.  Perhaps they should have spent a little more time choosing a Public Relations person with a lot more common sense.

    The statue of Washington was visible to the audience viewing the podium. My guess is they didn’t want anything, including a statue, distracting from MLK. It would have been better if they built some type of scenic backdrop to the stage in front of the statue. I doubt very much any slight was intended.

    The racists in this country will grab at any pretext to take umbrage at black people. The NAACP knows this and should have been smarter at handling the statue problem. But as we well know, the average person is a moron.

    Washington didn’t write very well. In his Diary he perused the complexity and wrongness of slavery. He knew it was wrong and had strong feelings it was wrong. BUT at the time he wrote about that he had to add that the tobacco crop had to be got in on time and he just didn’t have enough niggers. So he was complaigning about having to take a trip to town to buy some more even though he didn’t like the idea-he DID have a crop to get in. Besides-they were gonna be choppin Backky somewhere anyhow, might as well be for someone who didn’t like the idea. Slaves were needed to pick cotton and tobacco. The cotton gin created a great need for more slaves. A Machine. In another 20 years someone would have invented a mechanical cotton picking machine and tobacco picking machine and we would have peacefully done away with slavery without a civil war, a KKK, 100 yrs of hatred that still hangs over the country. and the largest most terrible war we ebver had would have been avoided. But a Dumbass Rebel dipshit from the Bible Belt just had to kill some yankees at Fort Sumpter. All the other countries did away with slavery withount mangling their own people in a gigantic meatgrinder, we would have too.
