Post Detroit, the Press Will Redouble Their Attack on Trump as Racist

Fifty years ago exactly I spent my summer as a civil rights worker in South Carolina. I am proud of my participation, but I did one thing for which I am ashamed. I was reminded of it by Donald Trump’s visit to the African-American church in Detroit Saturday when he recalled that Republicans were the party of Lincoln.

One of my tasks back then was voter registration. We would go to the cotton fields and drive black field workers to the registrar’s office. Most of those workers were illiterate and I would sign for them as witness just below where they put their X.

I would also — and here’s the act for which I am ashamed — uniformly register the field workers in the Democratic Party. In my snot-nosed, Ivy League arrogance, I thought I was doing the right thing — for them.

    It wouldn’t hurt to also ask when the “former party of slavery” intends to apologize for its abusive past re blacks. When it comes to Ma Clinton shouting BS about the cartoon KKK, she knows more than most what the real deal was.

    • I suggest reparations from the Clinton Foundation are in order.

    The election of course will be rigged. So we need to let the black people own this one. Particularly the black middle class. Whatever happens to black people under the Hillary regime, is on them.
