that's the best one! so, if John Lewis didn't see someone "during" the Civil Rights movement, they weren't there? I bet he saw Hillary, though, because she was a Goldwater Girl at the time, you know, the side that cracked Lewis' head.
Sad to see Mr. Lewis has been bought by the Clinton regime
Coon levels off the chart
The Coon Train is never
What have the Clintons promised him? A spot in their administration?
Shame on YOU, AtlanticBlackStar. You clearly failed to do your homework, because if you had, you would know that Lewis has indeed met/knows Bernie Sanders, and you'd also know that Lewis either lied or contradicted his comments (in a book), when he discussed meeting Clinton(s). The Congressional Black Caucus is a "Do-Nothing", "So-Happy-To-Be-Here" bunch of [n]egroes. You could put them all in a dingy, and set them adrift, and no one would be the worse off for their absence. You are supposed to be a reputable publication, so when do you intend to start printing truthful, unbiased articles? Don't answer that. We already know that, based on your having printed this smut!
Uh, no. He just tarnished an otherwise distinguised legacy "in Just a Few Words".
Lewis and the entire Congressional Black caucus was Missinb in actioin for sandra Bland, Micheal Brown, Ferguson Eric Garner…not a word no formal response nothing from lewis or the cbc..at this point they are comlpetely out of touch useless and irrelevant to any interest or purpose to the community they claim to serve
The CBC is a bunch of "Lackies"!
What position is he qualified to hold? He's certainly over his head, and has "Risen to the level of his incompetence" in the one he holds in Congress.
You guys are SOOOOO MISLEADING !!!!!! Bernie Sanders was Involved in Chicago University Civil Rights Movement and up NORTH MOSTLY !!!! His record is EXTENSIVE !!!!! Also CBCPAC is NOT the "Congressional Black Caucus" !!!!! It's has Some members, but mostly LOBBYISTS and party LOYALISTS !!!! The CBC has NOT ENDORSED a candidate yet !!! There were HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of people involved in the Civil Rights Movement, and I'm SURE Brother Lewis did not meet ALL OF THEM !!!!! And REMEMBER !!!!! Brother Lewis endored HILLARY over OBAMA in 2008 in the beginning……….SHAME ON YOU ATLANTA BLACKSTAR……….SMH :-/
Clinton proved his toughness by flying back to Arkansas to oversee the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a mentally impaired black man who had so little conception of what was about to happen to him that he asked for the dessert from his last meal to be saved for him for later. After the execution, Clinton remarked, “I can be nicked a lot, but no one can say I’m soft on crime.”
In her support for the 1994 crime bill, for example, she used racially coded rhetoric to cast black children as animals. “They are not just gangs of kids anymore,” she said. “They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
Black people don't owe the Clintons a damn thing, we feel for his down home charms while he with the support of his wife locked away more Blk men than anyother President in modern U.S history, a fact which he belatedely appoligised for as well as his neglect of the Rwanda genocide, while we do't have to hate them, we need not support them judt because…wakie wakie blk people.
Exactly, John Lewis had to eat his words. Why John Lewis who have over stayed his time in Washington, love Hilliary Clinton so much? Bernie Sanders has a great black people Civil Rights record, Hilliary Clinton does not.
Thank you, so good others know she is a lying crook. Can we get the so many other blacks to see her for what she is. She uses religion to brain wash black people to believe he lies. She has no proof to show she has done anything to help black people, Bill Clinton and she came up with their crime bill targeting black people that sent more black men to prison than any other president in history.
They destroyed the black community taking the men out of the community, to populate the prisons for their friends who owns the private prisons. She has taken campaign money from them this election, I believe thus far they have given her over $133,000.00, she will have to repay them, by keeping in place, and adding more crime bills targeting black men going to prison. These are the facts people, read it for yourself. Michelle Alexander, on blacks don't have no reason to vote for Hilliary Clinton. If you don't read her report, read the Crime Bill it self.
You will find all the racist laws Bill Clinton had states to create to send more and more black men to prison, he actually bribed the states to put these laws in place, they got money, he got congress to approv this money he gave to the staes to create these laws, this information is available for all to see, it will tell you how much each state got. His baby, Three Stirkes You Are Out, Truth in Sentencing, taking away good time, left in place the crack cocaine and cocaine racist laws, after he had the research done, and confirmed the disparity in the laws, he did nothing, Obama came along last year, and allowed a few people out, and other laws thousands and thousands cound and should get out, but Obama got his money from the same people Hilliary gets hers. After she slung him through the mud when she ran against Obama, then he turns around and appoints her to his cabinet, that was not Obama's decision, it was the powers that be, with the money telling him what to do.
We need not hate them, why not, all these poor little children, and older children out her without their fathers becuase of racism and profits for them and their supporters.
No never would she if she gets in, he just love her cuase she is Mrs. Clinton.
Yes they did vote for Hilliary over Obama, that is hard to believe.
What's up with Farakahan supporting Trump? I am not suprise after teaming up with another racist Ron L. Hubbard, and Scientology, I am still in state of shock. Not really.
He has been living on his fifteen minutes of fame for 50 years. harry Belanfonte refuted his statements on CNN after announcing that he would support Bernie Sanders. Harry Belefonte has been seen a prisons and around the world but uncle Tom John lost his reason long ago.
