Responding to Kevin Smith’s July 22 column, I would first say that Mitt Romney is one of the few politicians to speak to the NAACP who has been honest with them.
But they didn’t want to hear what he was going to do to help them help themselves. They wanted to know what he was going to give them.
Offensive gaffes? Our current commander-in-chief would not even pronounce “Navy corpsman” correctly, and Joe Biden is simply a life support system for a gaff. Furthermore, it is the white liberal politician who “shucks and jives” to black audiences who react with wild abandon.
By far, the biggest health threat facing the black community today is being patronized to death by the left.
The right to vote is such a cherished right, and yet Mr. Smith claims it’s not worth the cost of a birth certificate. He claims it’s a “hardship” getting a ride to go stand in line at the DMV and yet, if that was the only place to buy lottery tickets and cigarettes, I bet these “poor” people would have no trouble finding a ride to go stand in line to spend their “hard earned money” on those items.
If tomorrow’s headlines read “World to End Tomorrow,” I bet Kevin Smith would try to explain how women, children and minorities would be most affected.
He continuously attacks the free market, yet there has never been a system invented that holds a candle to the free market in serving the public interest and elevating people from poverty. In these troubled times our nation needs real solutions that actually work, and it would be nice to hear from someone who at least knows what the hell they’re talking about.
