The Black Pastors have come out to support a man who is being “falsely accused”, who can’t “defend himself”….Roland Burris?
Brothers, as a Christian and a Black man I have to ask you all to stop the silly grand standing b/s.
This isn’t because Burris is Black, and honestly him being Black should not have been a factor for consideration for the senate seat in the first place. The job should go to the best person the new governor of Illinois appoints, or the people of Illinois elect, simple as that. As for the Black Pastors, I am tired of their lunacy. It is inane and disingenuous for them to continue to rally around crap like this. Stop bringing up race, that goes for Bobby Rush and all you other civil rights
pimps /relics activist.
This is not because Burris is Black, it is because he obviously was appointed by a less than honorable individual under circumspect circumstances. Here is what the Chicago Tribune reports:
“...in three sworn statements to the House impeachment panel. His Jan. 8 testimony before that panel contradicted the affidavit he'd filed three days earlier. On Feb. 5 he submitted a "clarification" detailing the contacts he'd failed to mention on the stand. Now he has admitted that the governor's brother hit him up to raise campaign cash, and in at least one conversation, Burris raised his prospects for being appointed to the Senate.”
Black pastors, please stop rallying behind these causes, you cheapen when we need to actually do something about a REAL injustice that race may be a factor in. Jus’ saying…
