Conservative blacks invisible and inaudible -- to Leftists

We read:
"On the January 5 edition of his MSNBC program "Hardball," Chris Matthews claimed that everyone participating in tea party rallies such as the one held in Washington, D.C. on September 12, 2009 were white. In a discussion with Mark McKinnon of the Daily Beast and Susan Page of USA Today, Matthews said: "And they're monochromatic, right?... Meaning they're all white. All of them -- every single one of them -- is white."

Members of the Project 21 black leadership disagree. They were there. Bob Parks, a Project 21 member from Virginia, said: "Here's a news flash for Chris Matthews. I was there. So was my son. Last time I checked, both of us are black -- and we weren't the only black people there. I know other black people who attended the September 12 rally in Washington, including some of the ones who spoke at the podium! I guess the MSNBC camera people missed them."

"To me, this means Chris Matthews thinks that blacks who don't toe the liberal line are either invisible - and apparently irrelevant - or such sellouts that they've become white. Obviously, he doesn't have the guts to have us on 'Hardball' so he can call us all-white 'teabaggers' to our faces."

Project 21 Fellow Deneen Borelli of New York was one of the speakers at the September 12 rally. She said: "Chris Matthews' statement exposes how his narrow-minded liberal bias blinds him to the truth. I was a speaker at the FreedomWorks 9.12 March on D.C. and several similar rallies in Pennsylvania. I'm also an active member in a local tea party organization. The tea party movement is not about color. It is about Americans expressing their concerns about the growth of government which will diminish individual liberty."

Borelli continued: "Chris Matthews may be the first liberal of the new year to play the race card to try to stifle First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly, but I'm sure he won't be the last."

Maybe MSNBC was using the same camera as those HP computers that "can't see" black people?

Chris Matthews is so far to the Left as to make anything he says irrelevant. He's the poster-child for the Kool-Aid drinkers, and his "tingling leg" remark when refering to his god, Mullah Obama, proved it. He is, like his father, a socialist of the first order.

He's been around a long time and understands that in order for him to stay somewhat relevant, he must be as controversial as he can be. But even to his leftist media colleagues, he's becoming an embarrassment.

There are more conservative blacks in this country than you would imagine. You don't hear about us because the Democrats and the MSM can't afford to have that publicized. It's makes their claims of complete control of the black vote far less believable.

But black voters are waking up. They are starting to realize that white liberals are not really their friends, but simply use them for their own political gain. The black community also realizes it was those same white liberal Democrats who got them addicted to government handouts. Things are going to change alright!

liberals always win hands down at bigotry. even using the term 'retarded' is against their PC rule book (the one they never follow).

I think I see your mistake ghoward79. The liberal's PC rule book is for OTHER people to follow, not them.

You can find smart, black and conservative commentators here:

But it's true blacks are overwhelmingly left wing. Something like nine out of ten African American voters vote democrats. That's a shame really. Why would they want to support a system where whitey can really keep them down, i.e. a system of big government and handouts. I would imagine in the time of the Hip Hop Mogul it would be cool to be independent and an entrepreneur but apparently not...

No Anon, that's not true. In fact, most blacks are not all that liberal in their thinking, despite the fact they support Demoncrats. Example: Blacks are fiercely anti-gay, and anti-gay marriage.

Anon also said:

The answer is right there in your question. They support the system because that's where the free govt. goodies come from. And they support the Dems because that's who's been feeding them for generations. Most blacks are simply opportunists, and will give their political support to whomever gives them the most.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." - Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

---That's true, which is ironic since most of them are being raised by single-mothers.
