Top Senate Democrat apologizes for slur

I bet you didn't hear about this one....

"West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd apologized Sunday for a slur he used during a discussion of race relations in a nationally broadcast interview....

"'My old mom told me, "'Robert, you can't go to heaven if you hate anybody." We practice that. There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much.'

"In apologizing, Byrd -- the Senate's senior Democrat -- said the phrase dated back to his childhood. In the same interview, Byrd also talked about joining the Ku Klux Klan in his youth, describing it as a mistake."

Democrats don't say things like that! That must be a misprint. Because if that was true, all our Black leaders would have had press conferences, demands for an apology (maybe even reparations), and radio/TV interviews over it. You would have heard a lot about it like with Michael Richards at that comedy club.

So CNN got the wrong man. They really meant Trent Lott, the Republican, must have said that.

Democrats have ALWAYS been good to us Black folks in its entire history, especially before the Civil War. Look up their history and you will find out the truth. They would never join the KKK.

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
