Alphonso "Uncle Tom" Jackson (Bush* house boy) on N.O./Black leaders
Like a good Black Republican Jackson serves his master by criticizing Black leaders who dare suggest that race was a factor in the Katrina response. In case you dont know what Jackson looks like here he is allowing his master to rub his head like a good negro should.


New Orleans' racial makeup up in air

Some black areas may not be rebuilt, HUD chief says

It will be years before New Orleans regains the half-million population it had before Hurricane Katrina, and the population might never again be predominantly black, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson said Wednesday during a visit to Houston.

"Whether we like it or not, New Orleans is not going to be 500,000 people for a long time," he said. "New Orleans is not going to be as black as it was for a long time, if ever again."

He said he isn't sure that the Ninth Ward, a predominantly black and poor neighborhood devastated by flooding, should be rebuilt at all. If it is, the new construction should be designed to withstand disaster, he said.

In a meeting with the Houston Chronicle editorial board, the housing secretary, who is black, also criticized the Rev. Jesse Jackson and other black leaders, saying they were stirring up racial animosity in their comments about Katrina.

"I wish that the so-called black leadership would stop running around this country, like Jesse and the rest of them, making this a racial issue," the HUD chief said.

4. What in the world
IS THE MATTER WITH PEOPLE?

The GOP plan must be to just make your head explode so often, it won't stay on your neck.

7. Roll eyes if you want/simple fact: 2004 elect. was about white supremacy
more clearly than any other recent election since 1968. Racist dominance of the world racist retrenchment at home and reconstruction and reinstitution of the structure of white dominance with newer, sturdier materials that can better withstand previous efforts to dismantle or weaken it.

"Moderates" who let this happen or enable the Scalias, the Colin Powells, and the John McCains and their democratic party friends are enemies to the true progressive people here.

HUD Secretary Token Jackson: Grinnin and Beamin for whitey.

I wonder how the dirtbag sleeps at night?

Once again the Republican plantation members are tap dancing more than Steppin Fetchit. A Black Republican is like a Jewish Nazi.

11. Should we be taking the African-American vote for granted?
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 10:09 AM by tx_dem41
The use of racial (and racist) stereotypes in this thread, either through the use of colloquialisms, references to slavery, or the assumption that to be a Republican an African-American has to be "flawed" (e.g. subservient; "Jewish Nazi"), does us no good in retaining a key part of our party base. Its almost like we feel we can say anything and we'll still get 90-95% of the African-American vote (btw...we got 88% according to polling in 2004, the lowest in a while...the trend is down).

Time and time again, I see such smugness, laced with racism (whether satirical or not) in threads, and I fear where it will all end.

13. Oh really?
Why am I not surprised that YOU would make such comments. In this era of the racist Republican party, any black person who would join it is indeed seriously flawed. This party is against everything that would benefit blacks people. Anti affirmative action, appointment of conservatives judges, destruction of the public school system, cutting of Medicaid and Food Stamps that help the poor of all races, cutting of Section-8 Housing benefits, failure to help the mostly black people of New Orleans during the hurricane. Look at the leaders of the Republican party; Hastert, Frist, Delay, Blunt. Do you really think those people care about African Americans? The Republican party disenfranchised thousands of black people in Florida. In Georgia the Republican dominated state legislature has made it more difficult for blacks to vote. Just what does the Republican party offer black people? There are African AMericans who are rather disenchanted with the Democrats but the Republican party is so obviously anti-black, no black person in their right mind would join it.

The Republican party has caused nothing but divisiveness between the races:Nixon's southern strategy, Regan's welfare queen, Bush 1, Willie Horton and now we have Bennett suggesting that the aborting of black babies would decrease crime. Yes, any black person who would be a Republican in these days has to have something wrong with him. There was a time when I could vote for a moderate Republican but they seem to no longer be in existence.

16. You are absolutely right,
No racism whatsoever in my previous comment, just the truth. The Republican party has shown by its policies that it is no friend of black people. Look at some of its most prominent figures. A few years ago we had Trent Lott's offensive remarks and now Bennett has shown that he is a member of Lott's club. What Republican leader has repudiated Bennett's remark? I haven't heard any prominent Republican criticize Bennett. Those who have spoken on the matter have supported him.

18. If the truth offends you, that's
unfortunate. I stand by what I wrote. The Republican party which you seem to support is no friend of African Americans and is greatly responsible for the increase in racism in this country.

And I'll stand by that.

21. Well I'm an African-American, and I will tell you this
I really do believe that Black Republicans are flawed.

And I will tell you why: because my fellow African-Americans who are Republicans, are voting against their own best interests.

Somehow the GOP has infiltrated our churches, and convinced some Blacks that it shouldn't matter that much to them, that they don't have a job or can't afford health care.

They've convinced them that what is most important, is that abortion isn't legal or available.

And I think that those of us who are liberal Christians, have got some work to do.

We've got to remind people that it's a Christian value to give people health care. It's a Christian value to care about the least among us.

20. Not surprising...you have to remember what type of person he is
During the Presidential campaign last year, he revealed that he was advising Bush on how to get the Black vote.

And he said he advised him to concentrate his efforts on younger African-Americans, and forget about the older ones who came up during the civil rights movement.

He said "You can't rise as a class. You have to rise individually. It's what many of the civil rights people don't understand."

So nothing that comes out of Alphonso Jackson's mouth surprises me.
