Three weeks ago I wrote this article, Reflections of A Black Farmer and a Fourth-Generation Descendant of a Slave. When I saw the Shirley Sherrod's story, I revisited my article, and it helped me to understand the behavior of the NAACP and those finger-pointing-I told-you-so white folks.
I was thinking about our country as a whole. I was thinking about the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I strongly believe that Black folks love white folks more than they love Black folks, and my article tells why.
Scenario: The United States Department of Agriculture admitted that it discriminated against Black Farmers, 96,000 claims were filed in the lawsuit, approx. 13,000 got paid 50,000.00., others are waiting to be paid and there are thousands who were never notified about the lawsuit......WHERE WERE THE NAACP?
HR 4213 Section 607 is currently before the Senate Committee on Finance. This legislation provides 3.8 billion dollars for redress of descendents of the Five Civilized Tribes This bill excludes the rights of the Black Freedmen and mixed Black Indians provided for in the 1866 Treaty. WHERE IS THE NAACP?
I have attached the three page article.
