You recall recently that Senator Barbara Boxer took issue with the Army general who dared address her as ma’am. Boxer believed the term didn’t communicate enough respect for her haughty stature as a member of the “ruling elite” in our country. Here’s the video in case you missed it.
Well, it seems the Senator has little respect for anyone she interrogates. Only this time it’s not her disrespect for the military that comes through, it’s her disrespect for the black race. In other words, she’s a racist–plain and simple.
Rather than address Harry C. Alford’s, Chairman of the Black Chamber of Commerce, concerns about the Cap & Trade legislation being considered, Senator Boxer speaks veeeerrrrry sloooowwwwly as she introduces the NAACP Resolution on Climate Change and quotes a statement from John Grant, CEO of 100 Black Men in Atlanta, in support of climate change legislation. Her slow speech insinuates that Alford isn’t intelligent, that he just can’t understand what she’s saying unless she slows down and stresses each and every syllable. Bringing in unscientific resolutions and claims from “black organizations” seems as if the Senator is saying, “Look boy, you need to stick with your own kind.”
This is racism and I’m glad Alford had the guts to call her on it.
