Pointing out this article that I read on Barbara Curtis’ Mommy Life blog this morning. She must be a carpenter because she hits a lot of nails right on the head. Here’s a snippet, but please read the entire article for yourself:
As Americans, we really need to ask ourselves how much of our opinions are due simply to media distortion. We all need to humble ourselves and pray that God will help us see through the constant manipulation of our minds to get to the truth. You must read what candidates say and never forget to measure that against what they do.
I will say one thing: the leftist media favors light-skinned liberal black people – especially those with more Anglo features. They cannot handle someone like Alan Keyes or Clarence Thomas because they look more black and they do not conform to the liberal agenda. Blacks are not allowed to think for themselves in this country.
In bygone days uppity blacks did not know their place and they were lynched. Today uppity blacks do not know their place as defined by the left and they are lynched in the media.
Alan Keyes was guilty on three counts: dark black color, Christian, and conservative – so he was even more villified by a media which thrives on savaging any Christian conservative – white or black or brown.
