The Left peddle many lies about themselves, one of which is that they are in favor of “diversity.” Really? How can that be when it is the Left who insist all blacks must be in lock step with their agenda, and become downright vicious toward blacks who dissent from their group-think, calling conservative blacks “Uncle Toms” and “oreos.”
The latest example is an April 16th opinion column written for the liberal white-owned New York Times by the paper’s token black, Charles Blow. (No, I’ve never heard of him either!)
Blow went to a Dallas TEA Party specifically to look for racial diversity. He noted that among the speakers on stage were “a black doctor who bashed Democrats for crying racism, a Hispanic immigrant who said that she had never received a single government entitlement and a Vietnamese immigrant who said that the Tea Party leader was God.” Blow saved his venom for the last speaker, a fellow black named Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel. This is how Blow described Zo:
They saved the best for last, however: Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel. According to his Web site, Zo, who is black and performs skits as “Zo-bama,” allowed drugs to cost him “his graduation.” Before ripping into the president for unconstitutional behavior, he cautioned, “I don’t have the education that our president has, so if I misinterpret some things in the founding documents I kind of have an excuse.” That was the understatement of the evening.
Blow then concluded his essay with this at once condescending and grandiose declaration:
I saw a political minstrel show devised for the entertainment of those on the rim of obliviousness and for those engaged in the subterfuge of intolerance. I was not amused.
The minstrel show was a form of American entertainment that began in 1838 and fell out of favor by 1910. Minstrels are viewed as racist because the comic skits, variety acts, dancing, and music were performed by white people in blackface. It is alleged that minstrel shows lampooned black people as ignorant, lazy, buffoonish, superstitious, joyous, and musical.
The dictionary defines “slavish” as unoriginal, unimaginative, submissive, and servile. In election after election, more than 90% of black voters voted Democrat. In 2008, a full 96% of black votes went to Democrat candidate Obama. Conservatism is about a small limited government and individual responsibility. To be black and conservative, therefore, takes originality, imagination, and an independence of mind and spirit which is the very opposite of being submissive and servile. In contrast, to be black and liberal socialist is to favor the Welfare State, which has become the new plantation owner that keeps blacks atomized via the destruction of the black nuclear family and any sense of individual responsibility. It is liberal blacks like Charles Blow who are the unoriginal, unimaginative, servile, and slavish minstrels.
Here’s Zo Rachel’s rebuttal to Democrats’ plantation mouthpiece Blow:
