So Ward Connerly’s bid to end affirmative action in Michigan has taken a dark turn as he warmly embraces both the Ku Klux Klan and the (MI Chapter) Council of Conservative Citizens.

Uncle Tom Connerly says:

If the Ku Klux Klan thinks that equality is right, God bless them. Thank them for finally reaching the point where logic and reason are being applied, instead of hate.

EXCUSE ME ??? Doesn’t the KKK, a now-defanged terrorist organization, define hatred? What kind of crack is Connerly smoking anyway?!

I really hope the powers that be are paying this “brother” a WHOLE lot of money. How much do you think it costs to sell your soul to those who would as soon see you hang as “strange fruit” from a southern tree. This is exactly why African-Americans don’t trust black Republicans. Contemplative black folks tend, for some strange reason, to question who’s really backing them. From a recent AP-AOL poll of African-Americans likely to vote:

…while the Republican Party has strongly pushed the candidacies of black Republicans in the coming elections, the survey offers little hope that black GOP candidates hold special appeal for minority voters. More than eight in 10 black likely voters say the race of the candidate makes no difference to them. (Source: MSNBC)

After that, to cleanse your mind, head on over to One United Michigan, some folks fighting Ward Connerly and the MCRI.
