    CPAC Panel On Race: 'Young, White Southern Males' Hurt By Racial Outreach

    At a panel disussion on race at CPAC, Scott Terry, 30, rose from his seat to question the discussion leader, K. Carl Smith, from the Frederick Douglass Republicans, over the role of race in the GOP. Terry said the growth of diversity in the party and outreach to black conservatives has been "at the expense of young, white, Southern males like myself." "I think my demographic is being systematically disenfranchised," Terry said. Smith responded by telling a story about a letter that abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass wrote to his former slaveowner forgiving him for holding him in servitude. "For giving him shelter and food?" asked Terry, as some members of the audience gasped and others laughed.

    Think Progress reported that Terry later said he supports segregation. Terry told Think Progress following the panel discussion that he believed that whites have been “systematically disenfranchised” by the federal government. He also told Think Progress he'd "be fine" with a society with blacks subservient to whites. African Americans, he said, should vote in Africa. He claimed the tea party agrees with him. Terry is not the first Southern Republican in recent months to make comments supporting slavery. Last year, several Republican state legislators in Arkansas endorsed slavery in new books, including one who suggested that the practice "may have been a blessing" for slaves by bringing them to the United States. State GOP leaders pulled support for the candidates.

    I'm not entirely sure he knows the meaning on 'disenfranchised'.
    So follow me into the desert

    And all the little pigs have God

    The Conservative Victimization Complex marches on in full force.

    Nietzsche on this kind of individual:

    How much reverence has a noble man for his enemies!—and such reverence is a bridge to love.—For he desires his enemy for himself, as his mark of distinction; he can endure no other enemy than one in whom there is nothing to despise and very much to honor! In contrast to this, picture 'the enemy' as the man of ressentiment conceives him—and here precisely is his deed, his creation: he has conceived 'the evil enemy,' 'the Evil One,' and this in fact is his basic concept, from which he then evolves, as an afterthought and pendant, a 'good one'—himself!”
    I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat — your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, “The true prince of Evil — the king of the Slaves!”
    - Ragnar Redbeard, Might Is Right, 1890

    I would haven to agree with him. life is much harder without slaves. Of course, i do snicker a little at the white trash slaves of the right complaining because they don't get slaves. Oh, did that poor deluded fellow think the rich white guys were going to share their power and money if he supported them? Oh poor silly little white guy, why would you share money and riches with a really stupid tool? Conservatives don't support racism, they just magically attract large number of racists for no reason at all.

    I can hear the conservative whine machine starting now.

    The man is a contemptible fool. It is fortunate that free speech allows such witless buffoons to out themselves before they are granted any significant power.

    The man in the video said and I'll paraphrase "Why can't we be more like Booker T Washington Republicans?"

    For those that may not know, Booker T was infamous for saying "In all things that are purely social we can be as separate as the fingers, yet one as the hand in all things essential to mutual progress"

    This was called the "Atlanta Compromise".

    I believe people of all political stripes, race, and creeds agree with these words more than they care to admit. They're just afraid to be honest with themselves.

    Don't just look at words, look at actions...

    Um...

    Essential elements of the agreement were that blacks would not ask for the right to vote, they would not retalliate against racist behavior, they would tolerate segregation and discrimination, that they would receive free basic education, education would be limited to vocational or industrial training (for instance as teachers or nurses), liberal arts education would be prohibited (for instance, college education in the classics, humanities, art, or literature).
    Hell no. Utterly ridiculous. Baselesss. Ignorant. People who think others who disagree with that kind of idiocy are not being honest with themselves are among the most deluded and self deceiving bunch in the human condition.

    Well, tell me what you really think.... Now, had you asked for clarification or perhaps read my words more closely, not adding to them as I had said "agree with these words " those words being what I quoted Booker T as saying, not the entire layout of what the Atlanta Compromise entails, you'd see that it would be a hell yes, astutely observed, founded on empirical evidence conclusion.

    Now before you continue with your rabid renunciation of the ridiculous, do you perhaps have more you'd like to contribute other than adjectives and assumptions based on arguments in which you are the author?

    I still can not figure out why black conservatives such as yourself think it is OK to look down on a person because of their color.

    ????



    I'm neither black nor conservative (at least not by the RNC of today)

    and to quash any future assumptions wrongly made about me, i'm neither racist, nor from the south, unless South side of Chicago(originally) can be included. I would also offer that I live, purposefully in one of if not the most diverse zip code in the nation, over 70 nationalities, 100 languages encompass the resident's demographics of where I choose to live.

    I don't look down, nor do I look up to anyone.

    The purpose of my post was to present a very true, albeit uncomfortable fact. That people of all stripes seek out their own. With all the diversity of my neighborhood, Latinos congregate toward other Latinos, blacks with blacks, asians with asians, whites with whites, this being further broken down by ethnicity, arabs with arabs so on and so forth. They are most comfortable with their own people and really don't want any meaningful intermingling. There are always outliers but the evidence is overwhelmingly in support of my statement.

    People don't want to admit this to themselves but it is true. So much so that I've been falsely accused and attacked for even having the audacity to bring it up.
