Here's what MSNBC's favorite racist has to say about Black Folk:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.We're ungrateful. We just don't know how good we have it. Hell, white America has done all it could possibly do (including discriminate against it's own people) to help us ignorant, pitiful black folk achieve success. And we still some ungrateful ass niggers. Where's the thanks? Funny though. He fails to mention how all that help wouldn't have been needed, if White folk had screwed Black folk over to begin with.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.
Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants.
Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?
