*New York's Gov. David Paterson is getting support from a local NAACP branch amid reports that the White House and top Democrats in the state want a stronger candidate at the top of the 2010 ticket.
A branch of the NAACP in Islip says it and other groups are planning a rally to support Paterson, who grew up partly on Long Island. They want to show respect for the state’s first black and disabled governor and urge Democrats to let him deal with the fiscal crisis, not politics.
The Rev. Al Sharpton weighed in Monday on his Twitter page, urging Democrats to settle the issue so that what he calls “reactionary forces” can’t win back the seats of power held by Democrats.
Does everyone notice that Al Sharpton - a purported "Black Leader" never mentions ANYTHING about doing all of this per the specific positive impact upon the BLACK COMMUNITY with the Democrats in place? "We can't allow the REPUBLICANS to get back into power!!!!" is the key drive for "Democrats Who Are Black" to speak up and settle things within the Democratic Party.
Just imagine if we move to a more soundly Democratic and Black controlled place such as Detroit. Apply Al Sharpton's words. "Democrts need to settle the issue so that WE CAN KEEP THE FORCES THAT HAVE BEEN IN CONTROL OVER ALL OF THE INSTITUTIONS OF POWER FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS IN POWER. Do you want to go back to the old days?"
Of course he can't even make the case that the PRESENT DAY in Detroit and many other places where THE POLITICAL VICTORY HAS BEEN WON are "the better days".
When will we have TRANSPARENCY that protects our CORE INTERESTS?
