Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker, (D-NJ) swears his roots “go back to slavery” and he made his bones during the civil rights struggles of the ’60s. He’s putting his “blackness” on the pedestal for all to see. He is the true “black” that is running for President.
As far as the struggles he experienced during the ’60s, they were very short lived, as he was
Spartacus must be a special breed as science has shown that for most of us mortal humans, our earliest memories are when we were 3½ – 4 years old. But Spartacus was not only cognizant of what was going on around him when he was
Spartacus spins a fanciful tale of racism where a real estate agent refused to sell his father a house, punched him in the face and then sicced multiple dogs on him, for simply being black.
Oddly, over the years the story morphed into a racial life-defining moment for Spartacus. Strange that we had never heard this “story” before though, isn’t it? Especially since it was such a defining moment in his life. Maybe he just forgot about it until now or only brings it up when “needed”.
Spartacus said “We’ve got to remember we cannot handle the moral amnesia that forgets the roots that are in the soil that was poisoned with hatred and bigotry but still found root in the ground. We may be the fruits, but we cannot forget the roots. My roots go back to slavery. They rose up through poverty and segregation, hardship and pain. Rose
This is only relevant because Spartacus is going to be running against another black candidate, Kamala Harris. And both claim to be a “real black” that is running and the respective “King” or “Queen” of blacks and of the Democrat party.
There is a “black” war brewing as Spartacus claims African heritage and Harris claims Jamaican heritage. Since her ancestors went to Jamaica, instead of the US, blacks in the media are basically calling her a fake black, not an African-America, but a Jamaican-American.
CNN host Don Lemon said it is okay for voters to question whether Harris is an “African-American” because “there’s a difference between being African-American and being black.”
Lemon said voters may want to know if Harris, whose mother was from India and father from Jamaica, is “someone who came out of Jim Crow, out of American slavery.”
“No one is saying she is not black. We are asking if she is African-American,” Lemon said. “There is a distinction. There is nothing wrong with asking that question.”
When CNN contributor April Ryan mentioned that “many Africans landed in Jamaica and all these other Caribbean islands,” Lemon said that “Jamaica is not America” and “Jamaica did not come out of Jim Crow.”
So how does where your long, long, long dead ancestors immigrated to have to do with how much of an “African-American” you are? To be honest, the entire A-A thing is a lie. How many blacks in America are actually from Africa. i.e. meaning THEY were born there?
Just the ones that immigrated in the past few decades. Booker and Harris are both black, and they are both AMERICANS. Why is it so difficult for them to accept they are just Americans, like Whites, like Asians, like Latinos, like everyone that was born here legally.
In our opinion, they’d better run that “who’s the blackest” thing past the true leader of the party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is the “BOSS”. Just ask her and she’ll be glad to straighten you out.
