! BOYCOTT////NASCAR//// !
Are you aware that NASCAR has given in to the pressures of Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow Push Coalition, by giving over 1 Million Dollars for what Jesse Jerkoff Jackson calls "Development of minority Drivers in racing" That's right, all that hard earned money that you spend on a high priced ticket to see a Nascar Race is given to a man who publicly states that Nascar fans are typically "Racist Red Necks" Why would a Southern organization, like Nascar, which was born in the South freely give a dime to someone like Jesse Jackson?
It is about time people stand up for something, let's put an end to reverse racism.
What every Nascar fan should do is write a letter showing your disgust with Nascar, who sold its core fans down the river by giving in to the likes of Jesse Jackson. It is about time we start boycotting organizations that are guilty of selling out to political pressures.
We the fans made this sport what it is today and Nascar just slapped its fan base in the face. It will not be long in this Country where it will be a crime just for the simple fact that you are white, it is time to step up!
Heritage of Confederacy has faces of many colors
Donald V. Adderton
Laurel - Information can be a powerful tool, especially in the hands of a mean-spirited segment of our society.These ill-tempered louts use information as an instrument of intolerance for their public campaign of loathing and detestation. Most recently, these hate-mongers have become engaged in a concerted effort to remove the Confederate battle symbol from the canton corner of the Mississippi flag - while besmirching the image of Southerners who fought and died for the Confederate cause in the War Between the States. Tear down the red rag and burn it, these anti-flag zealots have shouted across Mississippi and the nation. In their fervor to repeal history, they would ignore the valiant efforts of the more than 80,000 blacks who donned the gray uniforms of the Confederacy. Rising above the din, Anthony Hervey of Oxford has become a booming voice in a thicket full of naysayers as he promotes the military role blacks played in the Confederacy. As it is with other independent thinkers, Hervey has encountered his share of ridicule among the liberal black leadership for his stance on the Confederacy. In fact, one oaf of a Jackson city councilman attempted to intimidate Hervey after a recent City Council meeting because he dared question the logic of changing the state flag. But Hervey has heard it all before, and he is undaunted in promoting his fledgling Black Confederate Soldier Foundation. "What we are doing is attacking cultural dependency, victim status, and blaming the white man for all of our problems," Hervey said earlier this month at the state convention of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. "I pick up the battle flag because of that, not for white people or black people, but for all people." Hervey, a doctoral candidate at the University of Chicago, says that racial divisiveness is perpetrated by white and black liberals, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The liberal left, under the guise of promoting equal employment opportunity and a level playing field, continues to sow the seeds of victimization. It's a theme Hervey wholeheartedly refutes. So, the 34-year-old Hervey, attired in Confederate garb and battle flag in hand, has taken it upon himself to spread the word of the black Confederate across the Delta and on the Coast in person, "We want America to see its history for what had really happened rather than what the politicians and historians want us to see," he said. Hervey said he is determined to protest against the potential usurpation of his constitutional right to wave the Confederate battle flag. "We have no industry in this state, high unemployment, poverty, and people are talking about getting rid of the battle flag," he said. Hervey readily admits he once harbored liberal views, and blamed whites for his shortcomings and difficulties. Now he is seeing that the so-called black leadership has it all wrong, and that their one-note mantra is not speaking for the will of people of color, and apparently never has. "The real racists are the ones who will not pick up the battle flag," Hervey said. "When I pick up the battle flag it hurts, because this cloth reminds me of how stupid I used to be - making white people feel guilty."

The Confederate Flag, Should We Get Rid Of It?
Ok so what's wrong with me? In celebration of slain Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King's day (week?) if I watch enough news, I should be out there with my black brethren yelling, screaming and looking to burn every free waving set of Stars and Bars I run across. So what's wrong? Shouldn't I be offended as well? In a way, yes. I am. And here's why: I had ancestors who fought on both sides of that war – which was anything but civil. Surprised? Yes, in Northern Mississippi in fact. Cousin against cousin. One man trying to protect what was his, and one who escaped slavery only to be drafted into taking his cousin's land away. This little fact, along with all the arguments about Southern Heritage, Southern Pride and Remembering the Gentlemen who in died war gets lost in all the noise about why it's so "insensitive."
…And I am just fed up with it.
More than that, I'm fed up with the yellow-bellied, white guys who don't have the guts to fight back on the issue. I know, no one wants to get labeled the "R" word. To politicians, it's a label that's worse than being called a liar, an adulterer or a draft dodger. And heaven knows, you white guys in the public sector better not even bring it up at work or in public. There's a civil rights lawsuit with your name on it. Yet, I know how many of you – especially you folks south of the Mason-Dixon line must feel right now.
Wanna fight back?
Hold my coat for a minute…
Where were these protests against OUR Confederate battle flag for the last 135 years? Why are these black people allowing themselves to be manipulated by the media and their left-wing, so-called "black leadership?" Whenever I hear a black person talk about this flag issue, I ask them the same questions. Do you know how long that flag has been flying over those state capitals? Haven't you seen them there before? The answer from most blacks I talk to out west is, "who cares?" Not good enough for the National Association for the Advancement of Career Politicians (NAACP). Not good enough for these modern-day "Plantation Pimps" who can't find any other juvenile criminals to fight for so now they retaliate by "dissing" a great hunk of American culture. This is ONLY being done to pander to black voters this political season. You see, back in 1992, folks just decided to burn down Los Angeles while liberal politicians mailed gasoline to the rioters. This time, let's burn down a heritage instead.
I hope some black person is reading this right now and fuming. You should be. If you think the Confederate flag is insulting to you, you are being used, or as we say it in the hood, you bein' played – for a fool. By who? Not by those evil conservatives, but by the liberal white man. The ones who'll take your votes, then tell you you're not good enough to make it on your own.But there is no sense giving you the same argument many of the Southern Ladies and Gentleman are trying to give now. You don't want to hear them, anyway.
Let's talk about "insensitivity," shall we?
If you don't mind, some of us with southern roots are going to find every Vietnamese American citizen in this country, bus them to Washington, D.C. and protest to have the Vietnam Memorial removed from the park. Why stop there? On the way to Washington, we might as well grab every citizen with German or Japanese ancestors. With enough noise, we can get rid of that World War II Memorial, too. After all, These people all had relatives who were killed by the men and women America honors at those Memorials. You liberal, nothing-else-better-to-do black folks wouldn't mind, would you? Yes. Let that sink in real good. That's what you're doing to these good people of the South. You are DESECRATING THEIR MEMORIAL… Check that – Our Memorial.
What ever happened to Diversity? Tolerance? Must be a one sided thing. Don't give me that "Symbol of Slavery" bullspit. If that were the case, turn in all those 1, 20, 50, and 100 dollar bills. The faces on these bills were men who were leaders when many blacks were slaves. But let's get down and dirty, shall we?
The worst riot in American history was not in Los Angeles. It was in New York, back in 1863. You see, there were a bunch of people who, like during Vietnam, didn't want be conscripted (read: drafted) to serve in an unjust war. Talk to your President about that. Over 1200 people died in just two days. Most when President Lincoln sent federal troops in to put down the "rebellion." Oh, by the way, 83 blacks were lynched in those two days – right there in The Big Apple. So, which flag do you really want taken down?
But since we're all told to boycott, will those leftist, black elected leaders in South Carolina boycott the Statehouse while its in session? I doubt it. Will they avoid buying goods in their own state? Doubt it. Our forefathers who wrote the Constitution gave all of us a way to deal with a state's policies we didn't like. That's what the South was fighting for. It was not about slavery. If that were the case, we'd be bombing China right now, and we would not accept license plates made with prison labor right here in the good ol' USA.
Oh…What's the black population percentage in prison these days, anyway? The multicultural extremists can't call me racist, but in the black socialist community, they have even uglier words for people who refuse to live on that "plantation, " such as me. Just ask Clarence Thomas.
So let that flag wave proudly as a monument to the last Army in this country that actually fought for the Constitution. I am proud to have ancestors who fought with them. And for those people who don't want their state to fly the stars and bars, here a solution that's much easier than protesting…leave. There's a term for it. Its called "white flight."J.J.

Blacks Filled Vital Role For Rebs
By Walter Williams
During our War of 1861, ex-slave Frederick Douglass observed, "There are at the present moment, many colored men in the Confederate Army doing duty not only as cooks, servants and laborers but as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulders and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down . . . and do all that soldiers may do to destroy the federal government."
Lewis Steiner, a Union Sanitary Commission employee who lived through the Confederate occupation of Frederick, Md., said, "Most of the Negroes . . . were manifestly an integral portion of the Southern Confederacy Army." Erwin L. Jordan's book "Black Confederates and Afro-Yankees in Civil War Virginia" cites eyewitness accounts of the Antietam campaign of "armed blacks in rebel columns bearing rifles, sabers, and knives and carrying knapsacks and haversacks." After the Battle of Seven Pines in June 1862, Union soldiers said that "two black Confederate regiments not only fought but showed no mercy to the Yankee dead or wounded whom they mutilated, murdered and robbed."
In April 1861, a Petersburg, Va., newspaper proposed "three cheers for the patriotic free Negroes of Lynchburg" after 70 blacks offered "to act in whatever capacity may be assigned to them" in defense of Virginia.
Erwin L. Jordan cites one case where a captured group of white slave owners and blacks were offered freedom if they would take an oath of allegiance to the United States. One free black indignantly replied, "I can't take no such oaf as dat. I'm a secesh nigger." A slave in the group upon learning that his master refused to take the oath said, "I can't take no oath dat Massa won't take." A second slave said, "I ain't going out here on no dishonorable terms." One of the slave owners took the oath, but his slave, who didn't take the oath, returning to Virginia under a flag of truce, expressed disgust at his master's disloyalty saying, "Massa had no principles."
Horace Greeley, in pointing out some differences between the two warring armies said, "For more than two years, Negroes have been extensively employed in belligerent operations by the Confederacy. They have been embodied and drilled as rebel soldiers and had paraded with white troops at a time when this would not have been tolerated in the armies of the Union." Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest had both slaves and freemen serving in units under his command. After the war, General Forrest said of the black men who served under him "These boys stayed with me . . . and better Confederates did not live."
It was not just Southern generals who owned slaves but Northern generals owned them as well. Gen. Ulysses Grant's slaves had to await the 13th Amendment for freedom. When asked why he didn't free his slaves earlier, Grant said, "Good help is so hard to come by these days."
These are but a few examples of the important role that blacks served, both as slaves and freemen in the Confederacy during the War Between the States. The flap over the Confederate flag is not quite as simple as the nation's race experts make it. They want us to believe the flag is a symbol of racism. Yes, racists have used the Confederate flag, but racists have also used the Bible and the U.S. flag. Should we get rid of the Bible and lower the U.S. flag?
Black civil rights activists and their white liberal supporters who are attacking the Confederate flag have committed a deep, despicable dishonor to our patriotic black ancestors who marched, fought and died to protect their homeland from what they saw as Northern aggression. They don't deserve the dishonour.
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson One of my Personal Hero's
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is the most courageous, outspoken critic of the civil-rights establishment in America today. Often referred to as the "antidote to Jesse Jackson", Rev. Peterson is the author of the annual "National Day of Repudiation of Jesse Jackson" event. As Rev. Peterson likes to say, "It looks like I have a job for life!" Rev. Peterson is also the man behind the National Boycott of the NAACP, believing the organization to be nothing more than a tool of the largely "elite, socialist" Democratic Party.
Ward Connerly, author of a newly-released autobiography, Creating Equal: My Fight Against Race Preferences, is founder and chairman of the American Civil Rights Institute -- a national, not-for-profit organization aimed at educating the public about the problems created by racial and gender preferences. Connerly has gained national attention and respect as an outspoken advocate of equal opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race, sex, or ethnic background.
As a member of the University of California Board of Regents, Connerly focused the attention of the nation on the University's race-based system of preferences in its admissions policy. On July 20, 1995, following Connerly's lead, a majority of the Regents voted to end the University's use of race as a means for admissions. Connerly was appointed to a 12-year term as UC Regent in March 1993.
In 1995 Connerly accepted chairmanship of the California Civil Rights Initiative (Proposition 209) campaign. He accepted this responsibility in December 1995 when he decided the campaign was in jeopardy. Under his leadership, the campaign successfully obtained more than 1 million signatures and qualified for the November 1996 ballot. California voters passed Proposition 209 by a 55 percent to 45 percent margin.
Connerly's efforts have led to several honors and awards from supporters around the nation, including the Patrick Henry Award (1995) from The Center for the Study of Popular Culture and Individual Rights Foundation, the National Columbia Award (1996) from the Washington Institute for Public Policy Studies, the Lincoln Award for Leadership (1997) from the Independent Women's Forum, the Courage in Leadership Award (1997) from Black America's Political Action Committee, Lt. General Edward J. Bronars Defender of Freedom Award (1997) from the Freedom Alliance, the Spirit of Lincoln Award (1998) from the Log Cabin Republicans, the State Achievement Award (1998) from the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), the Thomas Jefferson Award (1998) from the Council for National Policy, the Ronald Reagan Award (1998) from the California Republican Party, and the Racial Harmony Hall of Fame Award (2000) from a Place For Us.
Connerly has been profiled on 60 Minutes, the cover of Parade magazine, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek magazine, and virtually every major news magazine in America. He has also appeared on The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Crossfire, Firing Line, Hannity & Colmes, The Crier Report, Meet the Press, Rivera Live, Dateline, Politically Incorrect, NBC Nightly News, CNN, and C-SPAN.
Connerly is President and Chief Executive Officer of Connerly & Associates, Inc., a Sacramento-based association management and land development consulting firm founded in 1973 by him and his wife, Ilene. Connerly is regarded as one of the housing industry's top experts, possessing a comprehensive knowledge of housing and development issues. He has been inducted as a lifetime member into the California Building Industry Hall of Fame.
Connerly currently serves on the board of directors for the California Chamber of Commerce and he is also a member of the Rotary Club of Sacramento.
