PAT BUCHANAN: The next real discussion about race in America "must be a two-way conversation."

Verne Strickland  December 15, 2014

This is a personal letter sent to me via private message -- from a friend I admire and trust. I will not identify him unless he gives me leave to do that. This is an important view of history and deserves much widespread attention:

Hello Brother, don't know if you've seen this or.not. I got it from my Uncle who's a Republican Mayor of a little town near Charlottesville. He also retired CIA and as my favorite uncle I put a lot of stock in this wisdom of his 80 year old mind.
Here's the email:The White Side of the Story of Negroes

This is the reason CNN has dropped Buchanan. It's like Newt G. said,"You’re not supposed to bring up uncomfortable Facts."
(Verified on Buchanan’s website)

Finally. It is said publicly. I have never seen the white side explained better! Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it. It is about time!!

 Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.


By Patrick J. Buchanan

Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White
America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances, and demands heard.
And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew
into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever
known. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the '60s on welfare, food
stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits, and poverty programs
designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses, and colleges have engaged in discrimination
against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches,
foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education,
day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how
many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for'deserving' white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white
America ? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70% and the black dropout rate from
high schools in some cities has reached 50%?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while
white criminals choose black victims 3% of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45% of the time?

Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in
The first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al Sharpton about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But
about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a
message everyone needs to hear!!!

OK...........will you pass it on?

YES. I did but will you?

Because I'm for a better America.

I am Not racist, Not violent, Just not silent anymore.
