Many African-Americans concerned about Obama’s focus on immigrant rights

Posted on Monday, February 11, 2013

By William Douglas and Franco Ordonez | McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — No sooner did President Barack Obama and a group of senators separately outline proposals to revamp the nation’s immigration system than the phone lines on several African-American-oriented talk radio shows heated up with callers blasting the plans.

“Amnesty,” complained Frankie from Maryland recently on the nationally syndicated “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton.”

A political payback to Hispanic voters that does little or nothing for African-Americans, reasoned Sam from Milwaukee on Wisconsin’s 1290 WMCS AM’s “Earl Ingram Show.”

“Our issues are not being highlighted and pushed, and things like gay marriage and (immigration) are being pushed to the forefront,” the caller said.“Hispanics are effectively organized. For us not to be organized and for us not to hold our leadership accountable is disheartening.”

The "Conservatives" didn't like slavery. Slave owners were obligated to ensure their slaves had food, clothing and shelter. That costs too much. It's much more profitable to free slaves and hire them where the employer had no obligation to feed, clothe and house an employee. This way the freed slaves would join the workforce in the company towns building the farming machinery that replaced the slaves. Of course the work was still hard and the pay didn't cover the costs of living but the freed slaves couldn't quit cause they owed their souls tot he company stores owned by the very people who freed them from slavery.

You continue to prove my point. Do ya ever post about the topic? It must b e you seeking attention old evil woman. I could care less. You are the one on here all the time posting your evil slurs. if it didn't bother ya, ya wouldn't keep responding.
LOL! YOU'RE the one who instigated and started posting to me. If you don't expect a reply, then stop posting to me.

I am by no means an "old evil woman," but you apparently are a very immature, small-minded little person with a grudge, or you just enjoy hassling me for no reason.

Is it your goal to bother me? Wow, you really have no life do you? No, you don't bother me. I find you idiots amusing and I enjoy watching you make complete fools of yourselves with your own stupidity.

Oh by the way, YOU are off topic and have been since you started harassing me. Buzz off, troll.

BTW, the definition of "lame insult" would be calling someone who can obviously read and write "illiterate."
LOL! And yet another one instigating for no reason.

No, not "claiming innocence." I stated a fact in response to the other troll. I'm not the one instigating. You fools are.

If you call that poster's sub-standard English literacy, then your as ignorant as he/she is.

Did you have a point in posting to me? Doesn't appear that you did. Troll along.

Just a tad propagandist and inflammatory, don't you think? Calling for Obama's impeachment? A great deal of speculation in this piece with no solid facts or substantiation of what appears to be nothing but biased opinion against the President.

What founding father said that the USA was a Christian Nation?
Answer: NONE
The Christian Nation Myth
Whenever the Supreme Court makes a decision that in any way restricts the intrusion of religion into the affairs of government, a flood of editorials, articles, and letters protesting the ruling is sure to appear in the newspapers. Many protesters decry these decisions on the grounds that they conflict with the wishes and intents of the "founding fathers."
Such a view of American history is completely contrary to known facts. The primary leaders of the so-called founding fathers of our nation were not Bible-believing Christians; they were deists. Deism was a philosophical belief that was widely accepted by the colonial intelligentsia at the time of the American Revolution. Its major tenets included belief in human reason as a reliable means of solving social and political problems and belief in a supreme deity who created the universe to operate solely by natural laws. The supreme God of the Deists removed himself entirely from the universe after creating it. They believed that he assumed no control over it, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation to man. A necessary consequence of these beliefs was a rejection of many doctrines central to the Christian religion. Deists did not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the efficacy of prayer, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.
These beliefs were forcefully articulated by Thomas Paine in Age of Reason, a book that so outraged his contemporaries that he died rejected and despised by the nation that had once revered him as "the father of the American Revolution." To this day, many mistakenly consider him an atheist, even though he was an out spoken defender of the Deistic view of God. Other important founding fathers who espoused Deism were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen, James Madison, and James Monroe.
Fundamentalist Christians are currently working overtime to convince the American public that the founding fathers intended to establish this country on "biblical principles," but history simply does not support their view. The men mentioned above and others who were instrumental in the founding of our nation were in no sense Bible-believing Christians. Thomas Jefferson, in fact, was fiercely anti-cleric. In a letter to Horatio Spafford in 1814, Jefferson said..........

Yup, I thought everyone knew that by now, but the far-right Christian radicals insist on distorting the truth of history to push their own agenda.
