Thinking things change is the wrong thinking when it comes to American politics in the good old U.S. of A. People like Newt Gringrich and Rick Santorum know we have a black man as president and a black man as attorney general, but they believe that the average Caucasian-American living in the Deep South thinks all blacks do is wait for government handouts.
So, after Iowa, they change the conversation from social and economic talk to the we-are-trying-to-stop-blacks-from-taking-advantage-of-us talk. Sure, they know that more caucasians get welfare, Medicaid and Social Security than blacks. But they know that little white children are told early in life that the nonwhite people live off the government. So, the message to the good old boys of South Carolina is we are coming to help you. Even Bill Clinton showed his racism in the South, calling Barack Obama’s run in ’08 a “fairy tale.”
Will the ex-slave and sharecropper ever get enough degrees or positions to be anything other then a government hustler?
