Critical thought gone to the dogs?
Advertisements [?]
Okay this is in response to the couple of threads out there touting the blacks dedication to Democratic presidents, such as this one

Very simply, if one looks critically at the results blacks have (not) achieved under Democratic or any other president for that matter, then why would ANYONE want to emulate their methods and manners of dedication?

Seriously. I don't want to become a person with those limited and skewed lives, high poverty, high crime, little chance to advance educationally or otherwise, unfair imprisonments (either not guilty and/or longer, harsher sentences than others), primary targets of the mortgage scam industry of the 2000s, extremely high under & un-employment... can you think of more? I'm sure there is more. I know for a fact that blacks are yet to be fully equal in this country, like women only much worse.

Yeah, I don't want their results, so I'm not going to emulate their support for a completely disappointing presidency.
