What is this?!
Npr.org reports that one 19-year-old female African-American student said, "Just when I think about politics, get a mental picture — I see old white men," she says. "I'm a young black female, so it's like I have no relationship to it. It's like they make the laws and I just have to deal with it." What I don't understand is how this statement is not being blown up as a racist statement. Old white men?
So, the Democrats are trying to rally support among African-Americans again, especially since they appeared to really relate to President Obama. Yet, they feel that they don't really have an urge to vote for Congress members because the president and his campaign have not come and attempted to really influence the black voters. I didn't think it was the president's DUTY to come and CONVINCE anybody to participate in anything. Because this young female thinks of old white men when she thinks about Congress, she doesn't really care because she's young and black. How is that NOT racist?
They make the laws and she deals with it. True. But, if she's not very please with the laws being passed then why not vote and rally up support for African-American Congressmen and Congresswomen?
Where is the news media freaking out about racism, now? What, because it's not a "white supremacist", we're not all going to freak out about it? Double standard, much.
