If one excuse for reparations won’t do then make up another seems to be the motto of the NAACP. After Tony Rand, the leftist Democrats, and cowardly Republicans in the state legislature voted to apologize for slavery now the NAACP is demanding reparations based on events that didn’t even occur. As documented by NC League of the South Chairman Bernie Thuesermam and REAL historians, the 1898 incident was no race riot or violent coup. After a radical black nationalist newspaper editor defamed the honor of Southern womanhood in his pages the white citizens of Wilmington went to shut his newspaper down. They were fired upon and a minor firefight ensued and the newspaper’s headquarters was burnt down. THAT’S IT!!
There was no violent rampage of whites against blacks after the initial firefight except in the imaginations of the NAACP and convicted felon Thomas Wright, who authored the false report claiming a race riot. Seeing dollar signs the NAACP are now marching around the state in the leadup to their conference where “Reverend” Barber will demand we pony up, N&O “columnist” Barry Sanders will shout AMEN, and thethe gathering will close with a prayer to Lord and Savior Obama. This my friends is something that can’t and must not be ignored or scoffed at. History shows that they can succeed at this garbage. I urge everyone to call their state Represenatives and Senators and demand to know where they stand. If they are for even a penny going to this nonsense then we must oppose them with our voices and votes this November. Bev Perdue will also probably support this garbage of a cause so a vote for her is a vote for reparations. Let us keep the faith as we age this struggle that must be fought.
