Daylight come and me want you to go away

CNSNews had the opportunity to interview some of the prominent civil rights leaders at last Saturday's march in Atlanta commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. The results were interesting to say the least.

First, when asked about Condoleeza Rica and Colin Powell, Harry "Day-O" Bellefonte demonstrated his usual grace and restraint:

"Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich. Color does not necessarily denote quality, content or value,"

Defying all probability, he goes on to make even less sense.

"[If] a black is a tyrant, he is first and foremost a tyrant, then he incidentally is black. Bush is a tyrant and if he gathers around him black tyrants, they all have to be treated as they are being treated," he added.

When asked specifically who was a "black tyrant" in the Bush administration, Belafonte responded to this reporter, "You." When this reporter noted that he was a Caucasian and attempted to ask another question, Belafonte abruptly ended the interview by saying, "That's it."

Mind like a steel trap, that Harry. Civil rights activist Dick Gregory had this to add:

"They (black conservatives) have a right to exist, but why would I want to walk around with a swastika on my shirt after the way Hitler done messed it (the swastika symbol) up?"

Yes Hitler sure did done mess that thing up.

If you listen to just two words from Ms. Rice or Mr. Powell you immediately realize that they tower above these clowns. There is an ever-so-subtle shift to the right of center occurring among the black population and the Jesse Jackson ideology of racism and class warfare is not working anymore. It is slowly giving way to the Bill Cosby ideology of "get off your butt, learn to speak properly and do something with yourself." These guys realize this and their response is to get louder and more hysterical because for the first time they find themselves having to run against the tide.

All I can say is It's about darn time.
