AmericaBlog: Some of Bill Bennett's "best friends" are black women

Some of Bill Bennett's "best friends" are black women

Yes, where would the black community be without heroes like Bill Bennett:

BENNETT: Let me just tell you, when it comes to abortion, my wife's program, Best Friends, has kept more young women from having abortions because they don't get pregnant because they take her good counsel...

HANNITY: Let me...

BENNETT: Than the entire black caucus. She has done more for inner city black girls than the entire black caucus. So I will not bow my head to any of these people.

4. Cons will never apologize to liberals
It is considered unmanly in their twisted little code. Did you notice the WH did not call on him to apologize? BTW, it is also OK to lie to liberals, e.g. the Tom Delay lie about not being allowed to testify begore the grand jury.

5. My mother actually said an equivalent thing to me recently
I jumped on her ass for berating the NOLA victims as lazy. Actually color wasn't mentioned, but the minute I complained, she started telling me that the (black) woman who took care of us while she worked, named Delores, was one of her best friends. She paid her a pittance, has rarely spoken to Delores since she stopped working for her, and never shared a social occassion, family gathering or anything with her. Except that Delores showed up at my brothers funeral - she helped raise him for most of his life.

I wish my mother had half the decency of this woman.

Later came the other thoughtless remark that people who in denial about prejudice usually make, that is that there are good black people and bad black people. But the antics of bad white people are not usually a concern for her, or if they are, it is not attributed to their whiteness.

7. What, is she, Miss Daisy Bennett?
Who thinks the colored folks are just children who need to be taken care of by the esteemed white ladies? Good lord, "they take her good counsel", just wow.

11.  I work for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America....
they have 3300 urban clubs in America and many in the Ghettos. They service over 4 million kids with great programs. John Walsh has worked with them and instituted stringent hiring methods and tracking of pedophiles....the Catholic Church should take a few pages out of their book.....a safe and sane place for kids in their own neighborhood.....they have a "smart girls" program that teaches exactly what Mr.Bennett says his wife does. Reproduction class, abstinence too, self esteem classes etc.....they have programs for gang memebers....they are an excellent outfit. They run their operation at 18%.....all corporations would love an operational figure like that and they are primarily run by Blacks and what has the government done....cut them by 17%. They are LIARS.....
