As the cold climes of February draw upon us, we are once again faced with that official government-sponsored 28-day festival of obeisance innocuously known as Black History Month. This yearly exercise in collective condescension typically highlights the accomplishments of historical Black figures, those hard-working heroes from times gone by who serve the progressive purpose of providing role models for the kiddies while keeping the victim-hood hustle safely status quo.
You certainly won’t find conservative Black role models offered up for admiration by the divide-and-conquer culture marauders, even though this February marks the 37th anniversary of Black History Month in America. Men and women like Les Brown, Herman Cain, Allen West, Tim Scott, Thomas Sowell, Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele, J. C. Watts, Gary Franks, Jennifer Carroll, Alveda King, and Edward Brooke certainly aren’t on the liberal hit parade of African American people to be emulated, admired, and respected. Instead, each of these fine men and women represent the modern-day Left-wing version of the Invisible Man—they embody the new Ralph Ellison prototype of racial oppression.
Yes indeed, the Uppity Negro Mentality is alive and well, creatively reinvented by white progressives who diligently denigrate successful self-made African Americans. Ain’t it amazing, that almost 148 years after the close of the Civil War, American Blacks are still expected to shuffle along for the Democrat Man.
