Truest statement of the week II

The disgraceful promotion of Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy is all the proof one needs that the black misleadership class is a grave danger to their community and to the nation. Biden was chosen to be Barack Obama’s running mate in 2008 precisely because of his right wing credentials. But he no longer has Obama’s imprimatur to protect him and his racist history is now out in the open for all to see.
He was always a lesser light in the Senate and was no better as vice president. Even in 2008 he opined that Obama was “clean and articulate” -- a remark which ought to have disqualified him from vice presidential consideration with a black candidate. But Obama’s goal was to make clear his own rightward trajectory. Choosing a senator who was anything but progressive and a staunch zionist gave great comfort to the Democratic party donor class.
The unwavering support from the Congressional Black Caucus should be an embarrassment, but these are shameless people after all. One wouldn’t know that Biden thanked Dixiecrat Senator James Eastland for assisting him in bringing anti-busing legislation to a vote. These facts are inconvenient for people whose presence in office is meant to squelch any effort at black self-determination.
