    Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it.

    It is
    about time.

    Patrick J.

    says we need to have a conversation about
    race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it
    has to be a two-way conversation. White America
    needs to be heard from, not just lectured
    to... This time, the Silent Majority needs to
    have its convictions, grievances and
    demands heard. And among them are

    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.
    Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank
    God he is an American.

    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.
    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 their
    time and money to support soup kitchens, adult
    education, day care, retirement and nursing
    homes for blacks.

    We hear
    the grievances.

    is the gratitude??

    talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for
    blacks. Let him go to Altoona ? And
    Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic
    schools how many were visited lately by Ivy
    League recruiters handing out scholarships for
    'deserving' white kids.? Is white
    America really responsible for the fact that the
    crime and incarceration rates for
    African-Americans are seven times those of white
    America ?
    Is it really
    white America 's fault that illegitimacy in
    the African-American community has hit 70
    percent and the black dropout rate from high
    schools in some cities has reached 50

    Is that
    the fault of white America or, first and
    foremost, a failure of the black community

    As for
    racism, its ugliest manifestation is in
    interracial crime, and especially interracial
    crimes of violence. Is Barack
    Obama aware that while white criminals
    choose black victims 3 percent of the time,
    black criminals choose white victims 45 percent
    of the time?

    Is Barack
    aware that black-on-white rapes are 100
    times more common than the reverse, that
    black-on-white robberies were 139 times as
    common in the first three years of this
    decade as the reverse?

    We have
    all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al
    about Tawana Brawley, the Duke
    rape case and Jena . And all turned out to
    be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black
    assaults on whites that are real, we hear

    Barack, some of us have heard it all before,
    about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars

    We are a

    even if Mr.
    Obama says we are not.

    This needs
    to be passed around because,

    this is a
    message everyone needs to hear!!!


    you pass it on ?

    YES. I did but
    will you?

    Because I'm for a
    better America
