"Helms was a racist". Okay, I've heard that from the dems here in NC ever since I moved here in 1972. And, he kept getting elected and a great many blacks voted for him. What made Helms a racist? I've never seen or heard him call a black person any name..of any kind. I've never seen or heard of him doing anything to any black person that hurt him/her. What, exactly, was it about Helms, Gary, that made him a racist? Is a racist someone that questions the black culture in that there is too much "dependence" on government taught there? Does it make Helms a racist for pointing out that the blacks make up the predominant population within the jails and prisons in our country? Was Helms a racist for saying that it is a tragedy that within the black community a huge number of children born there never know their fathers?
Are these points and pointing these things out racist? Really? What a shame it is that our country has become so concerned with political power that we use our citizens' color to divide ourselves and to gain control of government and to falsely portray those that disagree with us as evil people they truly are not.
It is people like you, Gary, that have caused our "great divide" in this country. It is the left...the progressives...that race bait. Only whites can be racist to you folks...and especially conservative whites that are achievers and have been successful in their lives. And, if you add in "Christian conservative"...well, THOSE folks are evil incarnate to progressives.
I know you earn your living being who you portray yourself as being, Gary Pearce. So, I understand why you say what you do in most cases. I wonder what is going to happen when "they" come to get your savings and your investment income and your wealth when "they" have used up all of the wealth from those in the higher income/higher wealth categories...or when those folks figure out how to "protect" what they have. We'll see then just how "progressive" you aren, Mr. Pearce.
