Lotts of Trouble

Trent Lott, Senate Majority Leader to be, has revealed his nostalgia for the good ol' days of segregation, a happier time for white folks when we didn't have "all these problems over all these years."
Lott Apologizes Anew For 'Terrible' Remark
Conservatives led the assault on his anachronistic comments and his insensitivity to the emergence of Blacks as possible supporters of conservative ideology. Oh, don't be so cynical, Tom. People like Charles Krauthammer don't care about anything but principle. Yeah, right.

Anyway, now that even Clarence Thomas has opened his mouth on the subject of race (High Court Hears Thomas On KKK Rite), it seems there's a very real Republican Black constituency that is not keeping silent like "The Spook Who Sat by the Door". It's time that people like me woke up and recognized legitimate Black conservatism for what it is, a viable political force that is not beholden to the Civil Rights movement, but to its own sense of entitlement. The rest of us can thank the Civil Rights movement for this much freedom. Black conservatives can now go ahead and take it for granted. Apparently, Mr. Lott didn't get that either.
