Hustlers & Grifters & Family
Ah hem...Rick Perry hinted around to President Obama's birth certificate claiming it was joke. Yup, I reckon it was one of those good ole boys, good natured "colored" jokes regarding the birther theory. The birther theory did not sit right with a lot of folks and people thought that we had moved on from that after the Donald Trump embarrassment.
Well... now, Perry has folks wondering about his own family tree. I mean it does sort of raised eyebrows a little bit, especially with a family ranch called "Niggerhead" and him not to long ago threatening to secede from the union when President Obama (a black man) was elected.
Anyway, the secessionist governor should have left stirring the pot to the women folks because looks like he keeps making a big mess in the kitchen. Which leads up to why people have a question for Perry regarding his family tree. (pssst...Gun toting, secessionist governor ought to withdraw now because things is fixing to get ugly).
"...Perry almost invariably touts his humble roots, describing a hardscrabble but wholesome childhood in Haskell County, Texas, the origin of his small-town traditional values. Yet the New York Times has reported the pervasiveness of racist attitudes in Haskell County, where white residents referred to the segregated area on the other side of the tracks as “Niggertown.” ~~Max Blumenthal~~
"But both papers missed an additional important historical fact: Haskell County was home to an active, large and influential chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. The genealogy of a prominent farmer and longtime resident of Haskell County, Oran Ewan Webb, refers to the Klan as a central facet of life in the county, noting:“There was a meeting of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan at the O E Webb farm four miles east of Haskell on Monday night September 29, 1924. Public lectures were given by speakers of state reputation. Every officer of the Haskell County Klan was present. (Notice from Haskell newspaper).”~~Max Blumenthal~~
Shouldn't he be explaining to us why he is still trying to run a con game and get his "Looking Out For His Family ONLY bill" over on people. I think that Ryan has gotten so caught up in his own con game that he is actually starting to believe it himself.
Let's not forget, jigging, hustling, Uncle Ruckas Herman Cain. Someone needs to look and see if Hustler Cain has some ancestors that owned slaves in his family tree because Hustling Uncle Ruckas evidently believes in free labor. He does not want to pay employees minimum wage and thinks it should be lower. Just when I thought that Cain couldn't get any lower on the scale of self-hating negroes. Apparently, Uncle Ruckas likes to be called "Cornbread." And could one of his latest campaign ads with the slave shack and supposedly slaves be in reality a hint to free labor?
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
