Must Watch Video of the Day
I can't recommend this enough. About 3/4 of the way through I found myself watching with tears running down my face.
They were tears of pride, and oddly, hope. To the extent that there is something called the black community, they should be proud to embrace Americans like these.
That we live in a world that ridicules and demonizes men and women of such caliber strikes me as unbearably sad.

This reminds me of when they used to rotate interrogators around 24/7 in order to break subjects.
One after another. One after another. Can't really get a solid turtle defense going, cause one guy is as new as the other.
Boom, bam, boom.

Wow. Just great. These are the new voices of Martin Luther King Jr. May they lead as well as he did, and to happier end. Gong to watch it again, and post it elsewhere. Thank you, Cassandra.

I used to work with a Black Republican here in the Military-Industrial Complex™.
We had many discussions here on 3rd shift before he retired; he had a firm grasp of history...and reality, for that matter. I miss that guy...

I get a chuckle every time I see Alonzo Rachel -- he's a younger version (including politics and intelligence) of a guy I work with doing rescue dog adoptions.
We work the *larger* dogs -- he nicknamed one particularly truculent female Rottie "Nancy P"...

As Usual the story is that you sacrifice so that Democrat plantation masters get the fruits of all labors.
They will define the worth of your entire existence, from birth to death. All they need is more power. Just a little bit more.

These are the people I know and work with. It is refreshing to hear anyone talk about the virtues of "Melting Pot" and "E Pluribus Unum" these days.
Interesting read regarding Sherrod and her husband from the old days during the farm meltdown in the 70's from PJM and Breitbart. Seems the Sherrods may have been guilty of their own version of racism they allegedly accuse Breitbart of. Now we may have a better understanding of why BHO was so quick to dismiss her.
"No spit - acquit" is priceless. Do the naysayer types in the front row hurling accusations at the folks on the podium ever run out of juice. We need to pull the EverReady batteries out of these game playing Obamabots and race baiters. I find them tedious and tiring...and a trifle desperate.

Sherrod was running a slave plantation setup.
Whenever the Left accuses you of villainy and evil, know that it was always ever true of the Left first.
Combined, the new 2010 allegations and the original 1974 allegations accuse Shirley and Charles Sherrod of:
• Paying farm workers as little as 67¢ per hour, far below minimum wage for the era.
• Employing underage children to perform hard labor.
• Compelling their employees to work in unsafe conditions, including getting sprayed with pesticides.
• Firing any workers who acted as whistleblowers.
• Forcing employees to work overtime in the fields at night with practically no advance notice.
• Having a capricious payscale under which employees doing the exact same jobs were paid different amounts according to the whims of the managers.
• Being unwilling to address the abuse even after it was raised by union representatives.
• Seriously mismanaging the farm to such an extent that it went bankrupt.
