Republicans and Democrats Appalled at Black Dinner Guest at the White House! by Dr. Don Boys

While I have strong criticism of leftist black leaders who attack racism (whether real or not) as a reason to live, I do demand equal and fair treatment for everyone–so that would include Blacks. I resist, ridicule, and reject any special treatment for any group, but since this is Black History Month, I want to praise my boyhood hero, Booker T. Washington–a fellow West Virginian who rose from slavery to scholarship, from poverty to prosperity, and from intentional humility to international honor.

Washington commented on the race baiters long before race baiting was so profitable. He wrote, “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays.” (Let me know if you to hear that quote during the television spots supporting Black History Month.)

While I have no desire to be identified with radical leftists (whether black or white) I have always demanded that people be treated like people, not white people or black people but just people. Moreover, people of good will do not want to harm or hinder anyone but that does not mean such a person must defend and promote “Black Lives Matter” rather than “All Lives Matter.” Nor must we approve of affirmative action known by most thinking conservatives as “reverse discrimination.” We can even criticize forced busing as a flawed and failed social experiment not worth the social upheaval it caused when school choice would have promoted competition driving out the grossly inferior schools.
