Remedy: A black face to the rescue of black faced

"There is a class of race problem solvers who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public ... Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs ... They don't want the patient to get well ... Great men cultivate love ... only little men cherish a spirit of hatred." Booker T. Washington, Up From Slavery (1901)

No institution in America surpasses the Democrat Party in mastering the "art of grievance" to solidify their status. Not even the NAACP, Jessie Jackson's Rainbow Coalition or Al Sharpton's National Action Network comes close, though they try hard.

The egregious sin of slavery has its long-term effects and "race hustling" is one of them. Such opportunism emphatically delays the process of healing and propagates protest-for-profit, not principle. Clearly the climate of race in America continues to be sorely vexed by these self-serving institutions and organizations and thus the country is manipulated by narratives generated to control allegiances to their ideology. It is sad to those who are held captive by such rhetoric; objectivity and logic are lost to emotion.

One of the narratives redundantly spread is that only Republicans can be racist and haters of women. Strangely enough, it appears that only racists become front runners for President, Governor, Senate, et cetera, when the opposition is their Democrat counterpart. To give a quick example, Donald Trump became a racist sometime after 2007. Right? The reason I say this is because the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce certainly would not have honored him with a star on "Walk of Fame" would they? Yes, right along with Clark Gable, Sidney Poitier, Frank Sinatra, Eddie Murphy, and so on. Where was the outcry from Robert De Niro that he was a racist then? Where was Joy Behar, Madonna, Whoopi Goldberg and all of Hollywood's vicious critics then? Not one word from any of them. Why? The spider's narrative web had not been spun because Donald Trump did not stand in their way! In fact, Trump was giving donations to their causes. Now, all the sudden, he's racist...?

Recently Virginia has become a profound example of the loss of logic and objectivity, the blurring of right and wrong, and the bald display of blatant hypocrisy. What has unfolded within the Old Dominion State with Democrat Governor, Ralph Northam, Democratic Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, and Democratic Attorney General, Mark Herring is very revealing, for we see Democrats can be racists and feel completely comfortable with their racism. As well, the present narrative of the Me Too movement is clearly exposed to be another phony tool of the Democrat progressive left. How can they be silent about the exploits of Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax and totally ignore the two women who have accused him of sex crimes and abuse. Do Democrats believe these women like they did, 'I don't know where I was...' 'I don't know how I got there...' 'I don't know where the house is...' 'I don't know how I got home...' Christine Blasey Ford? The women who accused Justin Fairfax know all the answers to the above questions and yet it means very little to the DNC. So, I ask you, where is Congressman Corey Booker, or Kameela Harris, or Jerrold Nadler, or as I wrote above, the Me Too movement? Where are they? I can tell you where they were: the same place they were when Ms. Karen Monahan cried out against then Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison. She knew where she was... She knew how she got home... She knew where the house was... And she also has a tape of the incident her son viewed! The result? The Cone of Silence... And they are still there because the DNC has a vested interest in the Governor and friends, and clearly not the people they serve.

And then, adding insult to injury, it was discovered Governor Northam had dressed up in Black Face, ala Al Jolson, and was posing next to another person in a Ku Klux Klansman Outfit in 1984, not in1954, or '44, but in 1984! Are you kidding me? So how does our white Democrat politician respond to his exposure, and how does he calm the Black Community? He must reach out to the "race hustlers" in order to obfuscate, dissemble, and get the heat off. And in order to do that, you get a Black Face to get people to forget you dressed in "Black Face." Enter Reverend Rodney Hunter and a group of Black Clergy rushing to the rescue! No doubt it was a cost-effective move considering Jackson's Rainbow Coalition and Sharpton's National Action Network national status, and shall we say – travelling expenses... The press conference seemed to be a heated demand for forgiveness and who could be the most convincing in their plea – travelling expenses and stipend... Now as a clergyman, I am all for forgiveness, though skeptical, particularly when confessions come after apprehension. Yet, there is a greater problem here!

During the press conference in defense of the Governor Northam (Al Jolson) a Cheyanne Moss stated, '... she wanted him to resign at first then she went to church (for the first time?) and thought about forgiveness and had a change of heart.' Once again, I am for forgiveness and we should forgive his soul, but it may be better that his body should not sit in the seat of governor of Virginia, for "To whom much is given, much is required." You can be forgiven but the consequences of your acts may determine it would be better for you to step down and let someone else continue effectively without the cloud of suspicion and shame. The revelation of this bigoted act diminishes the office.

Also, one Reverend stated, "Look in your own closet." Well, I am not the governor, nor am I in public office, so, I can have things in my closet the governor cannot and should not have in his. The office must be respected. Still this is not the real problem. Here is the paramount problem.

Leading up to the exposing of the Virginia Governor's past racist follies, we learned of his present diabolical perversion of child birth and calloused sadistic view of innocent life. Governor Northam endorses "Infanticide" and has ghoulishly described how he would deliver a baby alive, then make the child comfortable and then decide whether or not to execute this living child. Hey, Cheyanne Moss, and the rest of the clergy in defense: when you went to church, what did God say about that? You ran to defend a man dressed in Black Face, yet you refuse to defend an innocent, vulnerable child from being killed... murdered by the 'trusted hands' that brought him or her into the world. Hands that took the Hippocratic oath not to do any harm to life. Hey, Reverend Rodney Hunter, you asked "what's in my closet?" This governor condones the practice which Jill Stanick described at Christ Hospital in Chicago, where in their janitorial closets were left little babies who were born alive – Made Comfortable – and left to die! Yes, Infanticide, and that's what's in his closet!

Speaking of Chicago, Barrack Obama actually campaigned for Northam in 2017. What do they have in common besides being Democrat and liking Michael Jackson? They both endorse Infanticide. Barack Obama voted twice against the "Born Alive Victims Act" meaning, Barack and Ralph believe in killing a child even outside of the womb by the hands of the doctor that delivered the child.

Barack Obama praised Northam, a former Army doctor, pediatric neurologist (WHAT?) and then current Lieutenant Governor, as the kind of leader the country needs, saying of him...
    "At a time so many of us are cynical about government and public service, to have someone step up who you can trust and just wants to do right by the people of Virginia, that's worth something..."
No, Mr. Obama, we can't trust Ralph Northam but, Once Upon A Time, there was a Doctor African Americans learned to trust, who embraced his vision and to this day, honor his memory, a Prophet in his time. That Doctor said, "I Have A Dream. In that dream we all have life, liberty and the right to pursue happiness..." I now quote that Doctor, from his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, where he says,
    "The early church put an end to such evils as infanticide."
Hey, Democrats: Why do you call Infanticide, good, when Dr. Martin Luther King called it evil?

Hey, Black people: Why do you listen to Race Hustlers, Charlatans, and little men full of hatred?
