Ahmad Rashad tells it like it is, but is it so?

Constitution was created by white people to benefit white people – WOW!!!!

After reading Gary Newcomer’s March 2 letter in the News Journal, I got to thinking.

He asked how much do illegal aliens cost taxpayers. Then he expounded on how the Founding Fathers gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Well, I don’t know how much illegal aliens cost taxpayers, but I do know that most of them work undesirable jobs at low wages. Very low.

As for the Founding Fathers, I would like to know how legal they were when they came to this country and what happened to the people who were here before them. In Mr. Newcomer’s own words, he says “half the truth is the same as a lie.” If you’re going to tell it, tell it all.

One reason non-whites have problems in this country is because these documents were written by white people for white people. There were no Native Americans, black, Latinos or Asians at the table.

A lot of non-white cultures have been criminalized in this country because they don’t fit the standards and rules created for the benefit of white people. A lot of whites fall back on the Constitution because they know that no other culture was present when it was written. Do not say it was representing everyone because it wasn’t. We blacks were slaves, so you know we didn’t count, but what goes around comes back around.

People complaining about illegal aliens should try to understand how Native Americans must have felt and still do. Look how slavery backfired. God works in mysterious ways. If me paying extra on my taxes means helping my fellow man, then so be it.

    If it wasn’t for WHITE REPUBLICANS, you wouldn’t have the Emancipation Proclamation, a war to free them (mostly white soldiers) the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendment to “THE CONSTITUTION”! You also have the Voting Rights Act AND Civil Rights Act of 1964. All this done by White Republicans. GASP!

    You said it all when you said they don’t fit the standards and rules of the constitution. Try obeying he laws sometime. They were made for everyone.

    Blacks were not slaves when the constitution was created, they enslaved themselves !

      actually there were slaves before the constitution “In 1625, there were only 23 Africans present in the colony of Virginia, according to historian Betty Wood. Thirty-five years later, this number had only increased to 950, or around three to four percent of the colony’s population. “

      “During this period, slaves of African descent and white indentured servants often worked, socialized and even ran away from their masters together. But by the end of the 17th century, the colony became more reliant on slave labor as the number of British and Europeans willing to indenture themselves declined and as the leaders of the colony feared uprisings among the poor, landless whites.

      Yeah…damn those slaves for leaving Africa, putting themselves in chains, putting themselves aboard a slave ship and then allowing themselves to be enslaved for the rest of their life! Hey Jerald…here’s a tip….read a history book.

      Daniel Campbell, actually they were captured in Africa by other blacks/tribes just like it had been done for a thousand years prior to Christ even being born. Slaves were sent to slave markets to be sold by other blacks and bought by mostly Muslims. The Europeans didn’t have a corner on the market.

      Not what I even remotely said Dale…you love to put words in other people’s mouths on this page. I said they did not put “themselves” in bondage….I did not say by who. And ALL races have been enslaved through out time…not just blacks.
