Talk About Low Self-Esteem ...

I read things that came out of the mouths of America's more influential blacks and shake my head in wonder.  Do they live on the same planet I do?

One can't put those two sentences together without invoking the name Al Sharpton.

From his hit TV show that is watched by millions dozens comes this exchange with a fellow victim of racial oppression.  (Or, more probably, victims of paranoid schizophrenia):
AL SHARPTON : It seems like they [Republicans] act as though, some wiping out of people, some of the right-wing, is all right, it’s not all right to do to any innocent people. If you had war and people that’s one thing, but to wipe out innocent people just because of who they are like what was done in Hitler’s Germany or what was done to Native Americans is not justifiable.

ELINOR TATUM (PUBLISHER, NEW YORK AMSTERDAM NEWS): You know but Rev, I think and what is similar to Hitler’s Germany is that Hitler did not believe those people to be human.


TATUM: They believed them to be subhuman and that’s I think the same thing we think people are thinking here is that you know why would they even care about them because they’re not human. And that’s how we’re [Blacks] being looked at and that’s what the scariest part of this whole thing is.

SHARPTON: That’s exactly right.
Republicans think blacks are subhuman.
