Back in November the news that two Georgia "Democrats who are Black" that became "Republicans who are Black" initiated a week of 'hate speech' on the "Fight The Power" radio station in Atlanta. They were called "traitors to their race" and more than a few people issued tacit death threats, one using a can of "Raid" to purge the "cockroach". "They now stand with the enemy" and "they are opportunists" were the most common claims. I remind you that one of the switchers is a popular political analyst on the local Black radio talk shows and newspapers who held no elected position. The other is a county commissioner in Hall County GA which has a population of 7,000 Black people. They should fear not because the far larger counties to the south of Hall with more than 600,000 Black people in them have retained their "Democrat who are Black" machine leadership despite a choice few of them deserving purge from office. It seems that as long as their remain "on the team" - the results that the people (suffer) experience is of little consequence.
This week there is news that a Georgia "Democrat who is White" has switched parties and has triggered an attack from of "Democrat who is Black". The different race of the party switcher has triggered a different type of taunt.
It appears that the Republicans taunt Democrats as "Baby Killers" for their Pro-Abortion stance. This party switcher was called as such just a few weeks prior during the Nov 2010 elections when he campaigned as a Democrat. Now that this same person has become a "Republican who is White" - his former Democratic colleagues are calling him names. These names, however, are race specific.
|State Senator Robert Brown (D-GA)|
It appears that as James "Bubber" Epps changes his stripes he will have to "conserve up" on his views about Abortion and then cut some eye slots in his prized 500 thread count white sheets as he joins the pro-KKK party, this according to his former Democratic colleague State Senator Robert Brown.
This means that there are Klansmen in the Democratic Party at present and they merely can "show their true colors" as they 'come out of the closet', wearing their new gear in joining the GOP.
Unfortunately with the city of Macon suffering major economic struggle and its schools struggling to make the grade too few of Senator Brown's constituents who will shout an "Amen" over his Klan comments will say much about their fate under the machine that is failing them locally.
Georgia Developing Racially Identifiable Parties
Sadly it appears that after years of calling for racial unity by the Democratic Preacher Rev Joseph E Lowery as he asked all races to "drop their foolishness" and join him under the Democratic Party tent of righteousness, the effort has failed. "Democrats who are Black" make up the largest portion of senators and representatives in the Georgia Legislature.
The largest cities (and metro-Atlanta core counties) are dominated by Democrats. The state level institutions are now firmly in the hands of the Republicans.
