So Who Really Has Who In Chains?

So Who Really Has Who In Chains?

In another silly, ill-advised, racist misspeak by Vice President Joe Biden, Uncle Joe told a predominantly Black audience (in Ebonics no less) that a President Romney/Republican administration would put “Y’ALL back in chains.”

Since when did Joe Biden toss the Queen’s English overboard for slang? I know Obama is biracial and has a race card by default, but who gave Biden a race card?

[And as an aside just because one is biracial does not mean they should automatically get the coveted race card. We mixed folk ain’t all born into Black liberation!  But that discussion is for another time.]


Here is an interesting observation; Uncle Joe does not use altered dialect with whites or other groups. He does not speak much Spanish to Hispanic assemblies.  Why did he feel it was permissible to “get comfortable” when formally addressing African Americans?

Once again Negros get the back end of the donkey’s…..you know what I mean. We sat idly by while Obama scolded us and told us we were lazy and to take off our slippers. Now we allow a white man (with a history of racially cantankerous messages) to “jive talk” us? What next? Hills will resume her southern slang when she hits the stump? Why not just add black face and make it a real minstrel show! Go all out!

Outrage from African Americans, “hell to the naw!” in my “Madea” voice.

Black folk don’t usually utter a complaint when they perceive the messenger to be Democratic or of the left because they are always on “their side. Let that have been Romney or Ryan talkin’ chains, we would be talking about crucifixion times or what country to exile them for eternity!

We would not be side stepping this with a “birther” joke. And yes it was a joke. The same joke told by Leno, Kimmel, Fallon, Letterman, Maher, etc… All made the same type of birther joke, all white, and no one made a peep about racism then. So don’t come claiming it now! Unless, you are okay with being a hypocrite or Democratic shill, you can’t claim it to a logical thinking person ever!

If a racist act is a racist act, than it must always be a racist act not when it suits us or makes us feel better. Logic, simple logic. What is unacceptable for one white man must be unacceptable for all white men otherwise it looks self-serving and sheepish. Why do I feel like Mr. Spock could really be an asset right now? #LLAP!

With all that being said, here is an interesting article for us ponder about who really has us in chains.

If you see the light, you know that answer very well!

Preacher Says Biden and Democrats are the Ones Putting Black People in Chains

A pastor claims that Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks about Republicans putting black people in chains was not off the mark. But the twist is that the pastor himself believes that it’s the Democrats who have been seeking to keep people in chains, not the Republicans.

Rev. CL Bryant, who does not appear to be a very big fan of President Barack Obama, is one of the people behind the new documentary “Runaway Slave.” He says that the Democrats have been controlling black people for a very long time and kept them in slavery with social programs, pandering and taking their vote for granted.

“You’re already there!” said Bryant. “Chained to the highest unemployment rate, chained to debt, chained to a 40 percent abortion rate!”

Speaking in Virginia to a mostly African American audience, Biden said that the Republicans are going to “put y’all back in chains” by letting banks write their own rules.

The Republicans immediately fired back, stating that Biden has gone too far in his comments.

“After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low,” Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul said in a statement. “The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

Bryant feels that part of the reason that black people are suffering so much is because they pin too many of their hopes onto the Democratic Party.

“This is a reflection of the history of the Democratic party. Their hypocrisy toward blacks was reinforced by this statement made by VP Joe Biden when he used the party’s timeless tactic: fear,” Bryant said. “Just another attempt to enslave the vote of a people they have long taken for granted. Also that the VP from the east coast would say ‘Put chains on y’all’ is evidence of blatant, shameless and misguided pandering to Black folks.”

  1. Frankly, I am very tired of the Republican rhetoric prtagapoed by the McCain/Palin duo about how Obama’s economic plan is a socialist plan that supposedly will negatively impact the Joe the Plumbers of our country, the $250K and more group (the wealthy). First, let’s check out the real facts (see factcheck.org). According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy as of 2006, there were an estimated 26.8 million small business owners, and that accounted for about 20 million “nonemployer” businesses (have no employees). So, only about 6 million actually had a payroll, a far cry from the 23 million the McCain/Palin duo keeps talking about. Also, on factcheck.org, that small group may not be impacted and actually not pay any taxes because under Obama’s economic plan according to his economic policy director Jason Furman, Obama’s plan would return the top two federal income-tax rates to what they were eight years ago, before Bush lowered them and would adjust the income-tax brackets to ensure that no married couple making under $250,000 or single filer making under $200,000 would pay the top rates. Further, the average income for small business owners is $233,600, so sounds like the Obama/Biden team is really looking out for Joe the Plumber and definitely for you and me.Secondly, this leads me to ask the question, then who are the McCain/Palin duo really considering, those whose earnings are over $250k and more (the wealthy) and why is that duo not considering Joe/Josephine the Consumer too? In case they don’t know who they are or care about them, they’re the average Joe Blows the Obama/Biden team are fighting for, those who make less than $250K. The McCain/Palin duo wants to paint the picture that wealthy people or the Joe the Plumbers are going to be taxed higher and Obama/Biden want to spread the wealth. Well, let’s look at that. How do the wealthy become wealthy? Let’s see, they start a business and I guess they just become wealthy by doing just that saying they have a business and register the business name and VOILA!, their wealthy. But, we all know that’s not quite how it goes. Business owners or small businesses come up with an idea to market or sell their goods and services to you and me, Joe/Josephine the Consumer. We buy Joe the Plumbers computers, food, furniture, clothes, toys, oil and gas, autos, alarm systems, banking and financial services, homes, apartments, refrigerators, other household goods, cable, cell phones, exercise equipment, medical, etc., shop at their retail stores, buy their brand name (their name) eat at their restaurants and fast food chains, and are fans of their movies, TV shows, sports, and other entertainment media and buy televisions, stereo systems, home theater systems, big screen televisions and now HDTVs to watch them on making those business owners wealthy, wealthier, and wealthier-r-r. Now, I’m not knocking any of these entrepreneurs because we all need each other, but I think we need to realize that Joe/Josephine the Consumer (you and me) are the driving force for our economy and the team who is looking out for you and me, Joe/Josephine the Consumer is the Obama/Biden team. The other thing too, won’t those wealthy entrepreneurs get some of those taxes back if not all of it. When Joe/Josephine the Consumer gets that tax refund that Obama/Biden are pushing for, what do you think they are going to do with it. If I can borrow a phrase that Gov. Palin might say, betcha by golly, they will most likely turnaround and put that refund back into the economy (a stimulating boost) buying more goods and services keeping Joe the Plumber wealthy, wealthier, and wealthier-r-r. I think that’s a win-win situation for everybody. As long as Joe/Josephine the Consumer buys, we keep Joe the Plumber’s business doors open to keep us gainfully employed to buy more goods and services and Joe the Plumber makes more profits to invest bad or good (and hopefully Joe/Josephine the Consumer won’t have to bail them out a second time). One final note, I dare to say that after Joe the Plumber’s CPAs and accountants reduce his net profit before taxes down to $250K, surely, they will come up with a $1 loophole to make Joe the Plumbers taxable income no higher than $249,999 so he won’t have to pay all those taxes after all, if any. So, thank you Obama/Biden for thinking about us, Joe/Josephine the Consumer, working class America, the middle and lower incomers, also known as the 95%.Sorry for the long rant.Have a beautiful day. Take advantage of this one.. It won’t be long before winter is here.
