Day Gardner, National Black Pro-Life Union Comments on Racial Statement Made by Senator Harry Reid

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (christiansunite.com) -- The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate, Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid recently apologized for comments made about Barack Obama's race during the 2008 presidential bid. He described then-Sen. Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."

Hmmm...several questions come to mind, what exactly is Negro dialect?

Did Harry Reid think Barack Obama's uncanny ability to turn on and off the so-called 'Negro dialect' like a water faucet -- a good thing? Wouldn't that make Obama a bit of a fake...a phony in every sense of the word?

Also, the main reason black people in general 'put away' the term Negro is because that word, which is Spanish for black--spurred the term, nigger.

And was Mr. Reid insinuating that if Barack Obama's skin had been a shade or two darker he might have been less supporting?

I remember reading the Willie Lynch letter written in 1712.

Lynch writes: I have a fool-proof method for controlling your black slaves. I guarantee everyone of you that if installed correctly it will control the slaves for at least 300 years. My method is simple, any member of your family or any overseer can use it.

I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves, and I take these differences and make them bigger. I use fear, distrust, and envy for control purposes. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies, and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little test of differences and think about them. On the top of my list is "Age", but it is there because it only starts with an "A"; the second is "Color" or shade...

Don't forget, you must pitch the old Black vs. the young Black male, and the young Black male against the old Black male. You must use the dark skinned slaves vs the light skinned slaves, and the light skinned slaves vs. the dark skinned slaves. The Black Slave, after receiving this indoctrination, shall carry on and will become self refueling and self generating for hundreds of years, maybe thousands.

Hmmm...interesting.

I believe the comments made by Senator Harry Reid stems from a time in American history where the shade of a black man's skin determined whether he was a field nigger or a house nigger. Either way, to the slave owner he was still just a slave; a sub-human to be owned and controlled.

Day Gardner is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union headquartered in Washington, DC.
