judge Janice Brown draws Progressive wrath for being
black and thinking Right...
[Bob Parks] 10/28/03
In the October 2003 edition of The Black Commentator, a
hit was taken out on Janice Rogers Brown, a Black woman nominated for the D.C.
find myself having to repeat what I have said all along: liberal
blacks (and some condescending whites)
we all look alike, we should think and vote alike. Rogers Brown
is a Bush-nominated conservative. Therefore, she is the enemy.
Funny how whites can belong to any political party they wish:
Democrat, Republican, Green, Socialist, and Independent….
However, blacks, in the liberal world, are allowed no chance
for independent thought. Just find the only seats they tell
us are still available on the bus: those near the back.
state judge Rogers Brown “has such an atrocious
civil rights record she makes Clarence Thomas look like Thurgood

cut from the same cloth as Clarence Thomas."
- Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)
I can just imagine the outrage if the following cartoon that
appeared with the Black Commentator piece had Watson
or Norton's face on it.

Thomas. So we put a fright wig on Thomas and called it Janice

Schumer, Holmes-Norton, Watson, and their liberal
cohorts who see blacks as stray pets.

clock" and give parents the same choice liberal blacks (and
rich whites) have, by freeing their kids from public schools
through the vouchers they beg for -- but are denied by black
Democrats who sell out their people for teachers' union money.
Brown bears an uncanny political resemblance to Ward
Connerly, another infamous Black
of California, whose Proposition 54 initiative
to erase race from the public records of
the state was

Connerly the belief that
the constitution does not allow affirmative
action, but rather, “equality
of individual opportunity."

Now "equality of individual opportunity" would
be a threat indeed -- that is, to black liberals who keep their
power by keeping their own people down.
