Friday, March 17, 2006The things people say...
Here is a very offensive editorial by Adele Ferguson. She thinks God used slavery to help blacks and we should be thankful that we are here in the U.S. She's also baffled why so many of her black brothers and sisters support the Democrats since she thinks they are responsible for our conditions. Wouldn't it have been easier for her to ask why we support the Democrats? It appears enough people complained about the article that it was pulled from circulation. However, not before it was copied, pasted, and emailed to several people/groups.
Maybe this woman is ignorant of history and doesn't know the conditions our ancestors endured aboard those slave ships. Men, women, and children were crammed into every available nook and cranny. They were denied adequate room, food, or breathing space. The stench was appalling. The atmosphere was so inhumane that many died before they ever set foot on shores of this promised land (some reports say the number that died were in the hundreds of million). And now someone callously say, "we should be thankful" because we were provided with clothes and a roof over her head. Very interesting indeed...
