CNS News: If blacks don't vote, 'snatch' the 'color back,' says Cleaver
By: Devonia Smith
September 22, 2012

Friday, CNS News surfaced a C-SPAN video of Chairman Emanuel Cleaver of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) passionately demanding that African-Americans who don't vote, "ought to give us their color back." The video was taped the evening before when Cleaver was speaking to a CBC forum on the subject of voting rights.

There was no laughter from the audience when Cleaver angrily declared, "They (blacks) aren't worth the color if they don't vote; they ought to give us their color back." Apparently, that wasn't strong enough because Cleaver vehemently added, "Their African-American credentials need to be snatched!"

Is that anything like a photo ID?

Don’t the self-defined “Blacks” realize how shallow they are to define themselves by the color of their skin. Whites have advanced beyond that, but Blacks have not and the federal government keeps reinforcing the division of Americans by the color of their skin.

They wouldn’t be doing this if Obama was winning in a walkover. Like the MSM and their polls are saying he is.

I keep asking myself if it is possible for a country to go completely insane. It would seem impossible but there are historical precedents. For instance Rome under some emperors.

Maybe France in their revolution, or the USSR or Germany under Hitler.

This nation I believe has gone totally crazy over pro Black racism. It started in the 60s and just kept on building until today. I was noticing today and have noted it before but one can scan the channels on TV and sometimes see nothing but Blacks, and I do mean every channel in my local area.

If one sees a couple, more often than not they are inter-racial with it typically, maybe 90% of the time being a Black man with a White woman.

It has gotten to the point that I really do think it is odd to the point of insanity.

African-Americans who don't vote, "ought to give us their color back."

What if they do vote, but vote only for Republicans? Do they still have to give their color back?

Sounds painful.

What method to remove the black pigment does he advocate?

Are there chemicals or the use of radioactivity involved?

From what I understand if one wants to ‘leave’ a biker gang, AFTER the ‘beat down’, his ink, in relation to the club must be removed....

So this could get quite messy.....

Of course, the people that this actually affects, will (probably) NEVER see these comments...etc...

“Whites aren’t worth the color if they don’t vote; they ought to give us their color back...Their Caucasian credentials need to be snatched!”

Imagine the reaction to a white guy saying this...

It would be interesting to know how many times Bambi practiced his right to vote prior to his running for any public office. Too busy with the choom gang more than likely.

I think you’re overreacting. All he said is vote, not vote for the black candidate. If Cleaver is referring to the shtruggle blacks had to get their vote counted, I agree with him.

Does that mean they also have to go get a job, get off welfare, and stop having kids out of wedlock? (since that seems to be part of being "authentically black" in Obama's America...)

That's not shallow, that's good economic sense-- for the very reason you mention.

I wish politicians, talk show hosts, or anyone who gives a damn about this country would employ this tactic.
Once attacked, they should hold a press conference in which they stand there and do nothing but repeat the original quote with proper attribution in response to all questions.

I suppose this is like being accused of racism, but, it only works if I believe it.

No but there is going to be a bunch of colorless folks walking around. Will it become another special interest group? This crap is getting a bit old at this point. For a Post racial President we sure spend alot of time talking about skin pigmentation.

The concept of “race traitors” is itself racist.
