Hard working people, white Americans, support Hillary

Written by Paul Zannucci on 1:20 PM


She cited an Associated Press article "that found how Senator Obama's support ... among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again. I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on."

This is fantastic. If only she could have gotten the support of the "lounging, non-working Americans, black Americans", she could have been the nominee. Unfortunately, race is an issue. But is it an issue for Hillary? Yep. But where race is really an issue is in the African-American vote, where over 92% of black voters are voting for Obama. It would strain all credibility to believe that this high a percentage actually just agrees most with what Obama says over the other candidates. No, being African-American in America is like being a member of a down-trodden fraternity. I have black friends, and I swear to you that they know, personally, every other black person in this city. It's just incredible. They are like the Mason's only their secret symbol is melanin.

Sincerely, I sympathize with African Americans. They were put in a piss-poor situation in this country for hundreds of years and were only granted equal status not really all that long ago. And after equal status was granted, there is a certain amount of time that must pass before society's impression and bigotry dies down enough to where the legal status actually means anything. Furthermore, I am, myself, a paranoid type person, and I know for a damn fact that if I were black, I'd probably blame half my troubles on that. It's just the way I am, and I admit it. So I have true sympathy for the plight of blacks.

Yet, I'm not black and looking at it from the outside, I believe the two greatest hindrances to black equality in this country are, one, the now unreasonable sense of injustice amongst African-Americans that won't allow the past to be the past, and, two, the Democratic Party,which plays upon these sensibilities of the African-Americans to keep them in line as a voting block.

And little miss's comments are an example of what happens when a prominent Dem suddenly finds that she can't count on this voting block being there. The ugly secret normally hidden away in the Democratic closet starts to peek out. Make no mistake. Dems are friends of the black community only as long as they are getting the lion's share of the black votes.
