Like a rainy night in Georgia, crisis all over the world. President Barack Obama must sometimes feel alone, one crisis after another one. First African-American president, no blueprint, no carefully designed plan – only reproduction of the slave masters, the good old boys hindering progress with their propaganda.

Crisis on the border, catastrophe around the world, National Guard troops on the border preventing poor little dark-skinned children like mine from entering the United States. If the children’s skin color was white, and they had blue eyes and blonde hair, would we send them back? Would we stand by and allow racist people to attack them?

When the Little Rock Nine were integrated into Little Rock Central High School in 1957, troops from the 101st Airborne National Guard did their best to protect them from the racist adults screaming, “One N’ down, eight to go.” (Arkansas Gazette, Wednesday, Dec. 18, 1957.)

People from all lifestyles contributed to make America the greatest country in the world. Refugee children crossing the border have nothing to do with homelessness and the injustices in America. The good old boys war created this mess, maintaining authority and power over the poor.

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Every living mother wants a better life for her children. Every child needs to be loved. Skin color and religious beliefs should not matter. There is something for everyone and in the end we all benefit. We will pay taxes and die, so live and let live. Treat people as you want to be treated.

I want my 40 acres and a mule.

Minnie Noble

    Man, once in a while this letter writer will come up with something that does make sense, but she was really out in her Racist Twilight Zone this time, talking about, "Little dark skinned children here and there," and, "the children’s skin color was white, and they had blue eyes and blonde hair," also. Does she see anything in terms of ANYTHING other than COLOR and race, ethnicity??? I'll bet she also goes to one of those, Black Only churches, where they often bad mouth us white folk. Probably dreams about us chasing her with a pitch fork :-). Why doesn't she see that those little dark skinned children crossing the border illegally are committing a FELONY as their very first action coming into the U.S. ??? I would feel the same if it were a blond haired, blue eyed German or Swede. It is not OK to come in here breaking our immigration laws. Come in LEGALLY, and I will welcome you with open arms, no matter your skin color darker or pale faced. Ms. Noble if you were way way younger I'd suggest GROWING UP, but you just need to OPEN YOUR EYES and SEE THE TRUTH!!!!!! As far as your 40 acres, we'd all like that, but forget the mule. That was already eaten by those on the way to trying to cross our border illegally :-)

  • 40 acres and a mule.....August 07, 2014 - 8:14 am

    If you do a search for free land in the US, several hits come up with land in Kansas, Nebraska, and a few other places. If some of us pitch in for the 40 acres, will you move there? As for the mule, well, TBT said it pretty well, however, the BLM has roundups every year and you might be able to get one.

    I would definitely pitch in. I am so tired of her racist B_LLCrap. Racist statements are lame no matter who is saying them. But for some reason people like her feel that they can get away with it.

    ...if BO has no "blueprint"...then again he lied to us. I fear his "blueprint" does not include America's best interests!
