Frederick Douglas reads demeaning, condescending, paternalistic Libs the riot act…

Posted: October 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

1865 The question: what should the country do with former slaves? Frederick Douglas: “Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us…if the apples will not stay on the tree of their own strength…let them fall…And if the negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs.” In other words don’t stand in his way with racist laws or racist condescending “uplifts”. This is the theme in a new book by African-American writer Jason Riley, Please Stop Helping Us. Readers of Shelby Steele and Thomas Sowell will especially appreciate this book.
