Perhaps a copy should be mailed to Alan Keyes...

Black conservative ping

If you want on (or off) of my black conservative ping list, please let me know via FREEPmail. (And no, you don't have to be black to be on the list!)

Extra warning: this is a high-volume ping list.

In a democracy, a minority that is no longer even the largest minority cannot afford to alienate, much less embitter, the majority which ultimately holds the political power in the country.

Yep. You can bet your butt that, if Keyes were successful in his reparations scheme, every Hispanic in North America would suddenly claim he was a descendant of Santa Ana and should get a tax holiday because he/she suffered irreparable harm at San Jacinto!

Mr. Keyes.
Never take a knife to a gun fight.

P.S. - Why doesn't Mr. Sowell run for office?

I've never understood reparations.

My great-great-grandfather, an abolitionist from Rhode Island, joined the Union Army and fought to free the slaves. He never returned from the war.

Am I also entitled to reparations for my great-great-grandfather's sacrifice, or alternatively, am I exempt from having to contribute to reparations?

This demand also mobilizes a certain amount of support or sympathy among whites, especially those in the media and in academia, where such support or sympathy costs nothing, and allows those who give it to relieve their own sense of guilt, while risking other people's money -- and national cohesion.

The Arafats of America unite under this cause to promote division, grow rich, and above all- retain power.
