From 3 Chics’ Rikyrah:
There was Vernon Jordan, pretty much quoting Hank Aaron… when talking about the Supreme Court and the attack on voting rights..
“they don’t come in sheets, they have on suits”.
I’m telling y’all..
The Elders are just not having it anymore.
They don’t care.
They not pretending that they care.
Yes, the HIT DOGS are going to holler RACE CARD!!!Because, you know it’s always way better and right when white men get to pontificate about blacks and racism.
*I’m saying this for the fifty-eleventh time, If you haven’t lived in black skin, you NEVER, EVER, GET TO TELL ME WHAT IS AND ISN’T RACIST. GOT IT!
First: Baseball great and Humanitarian Hank Aaron
“We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.
“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.
“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
Second: AG Eric Holder:
Third: Representative Charlie Rangel
“If there’s anyone that believes that the color of the president is not an issue with those people who adamantly oppose them, they’re not realistic,” Rangel declared. “All it takes is someone, a group — they call themselves the Tea Party — to be able to impede the good Republicans from cooperating the way they should with Democrats so that at the end of the day, the country succeeds.”
“But if you notice, whenever this group gets together against Obama, the Confederate flag is there with them,” he insisted. “When I was involved in civil rights struggles and the communists would try to get in, we would tell them, ‘You get yourself another corner, this is the civil rights demonstration.'”
“They don’t do that with the Confederates.”
Fourth: Vernon Jordan:
Vernon Jordan joins Joy Reid to talk about the legacy of President Lyndon Johnson and the continued fight for equality as national leaders mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Excerpt Jordan on the Supreme court, voter suppression. etc.
“We’re back to the old man was. I didn’t come because trouble is a commin,’ And trouble is commin’ like it used did. It’s just different. Nobody’s in white sheets, they’re in three-button suits.” Signs are not saying “Colored and white” There are no signs saying black people go home, but implicit in these new voter registration laws and the Supreme Court’s decision, it’s TAKEN US BACK.”
