I’m Thankful For Black People
Thanksgiving is almost here. This being so, it is time to reflect upon the things for which we are thankful.
One of the many things I am thankful for is black people.
So few black people are in the so-called Tea Party. Look at the pictures of Tea Party groups–You’ll see hardly black folks at all.
This is a good call by our nation’s black people.
Black people wanted out of the south because , as far as I can tell, the way blacks were treated in the Jim Crow south was little better than how Jews were treated in the Germany of the 1930’s.
Below is a picture I took in Houston yesterday. While I don’t know for 100% that the people who painted this fence were black, I do know that I took this picture in a black part of town.
Instead of going on about Muslims, immigrants and the government, the folks who painted this fence were looking towards a better future.
To proceed in this way in these hard times ,and given the history of black folks in America ,takes character.
