Posted on 02/23/2010 4:43:13 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
It's hardly news that black conservatives are reviled among much of the left. There seems to be a sense among much of the liberal media that they have betrayed their own interests through their conservative principles.
Few, however, would have the (dare I say it) audacity to lump prominent and accomplished African American political figures in with oppressive genocidal dictators and serial killers.
But TheRoot.com, a blog owned by the Washington Post, seems to have no qualms about doing so, as evidenced in its list of 21 "Black Folks We'd Like To Remove From Black History". Among the names are Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele.
Also included on the list: murderous Ugandan military dictator Idi Amin, the notorious "DC Sniper" John Allen Muhammad, Zimbabwean kleptocrat Robert Mugabe and the ruthless father-and-son Haitian dictators "Papa Doc" and "Baby Doc" Duvalier.
Yes, apparently being right-of-center and of African descent puts you on par with murderers and dictators.
"We're sure that, at first, the 12 blacks who still claimed to be Republicans post-Bush were full of glee about his election," TheRoot says of Michael Steele. "Unfortunately, Steele has since morphed into the Bozo of politics. Too bad for him and the GOP that the only people laughing are the ones on the other side of the political aisle."
Why that makes him worthy being scrubbed from the history books remains unclear. Oh, right, he's a black conservative, so he doesn't serve TheRoot's agenda. Begin the scrubbing. Or is that purging?

Geez, they got Steele and not the Panty Bonmber?
What's difference does skin color make?
WaPo should repudiate this article or prepare to be painted RACIST!
Genocidal Dictators include:
Wow! There’s a trend...They’re all MARXISTS, COMMUNISTS AND SOCIALISTS!
Racist bastards over there at the WAPO, must of had a bad lunch over at MSNBC’s commissary.
Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams would make wonderful dictators!!!!
I’m thinking they don’t care for Ward Connerly either.
Another racist MSMer opens his mouth.
Those whose entire agenda and political identity is based on genocide against poor blacks by means of abortion have no moral standing to credibly make any such charges.
