"Southern areas have cultures we have to overcome."
Is Charlie Rangel in denial? Or just plain dishonest?
When discussing the dilemma of gun violence in America, the congressman from New York blurted out his excess belligerence by blaming America's Southern culture (read, "white") as the embolus that is blocking progress in controlling gun crime.
Is Charlie Rangel ignorant? Or just plain insane?
Does he not know that 52.2% of homicides in America are committed by blacks, most by black males between the ages of 18 and 49 who comprise about 3 percent of the nation's population (Dept of Justice statistics)?
In fact, Southern whites may well be our last hope to defend the United States Constitution and our rights as Americans to defend ourselves from violence.
Liberals have long sought to overcome Constitutional law that impedes their fascist agenda. To accomplish that there are, indeed, some "Southern areas that have cultures" they need to overcome.
