The Real Racists

This from the Federalist Patriot:

"Black U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, says 'the minority community' blames racism for the Republican refusal to increase the debt limit without conditions. ... [S]he took to the House floor with the subtlety of a woodchipper: '(O)nly this president ... only this one, has received the kind of attacks and disagreements and inability to work, only this one. Read between the lines.' ... [Q]uestioning Obama's costly government takeover of health care, his failed $800 billion 'stimulus' plan and the over $4 trillion in new debt equals racism. Lee says she speaks on behalf of the 'minority community.' Would this be the minority community with 16.2 percent black unemployment, up from 12.6 percent in the two-and-a-half years of the Obama administration? In what category does Lee place black House members like Allen West, R-Fla., and Tim Scott, R-S.C., who also oppose Obama's agenda? Are they anti-black black racists -- or black anti-black racists? ... It isn't the color of [Obama's] skin -- it is the complete and total rejection of his policies."
