Remember the guy at Forbes magazine that wrote “if i were a poor black kid”
It was the, my dad made it why can’t yours – if you work hard, you will succeed, argument. Forget the fact that the majority of this country’s history has included discriminatory laws that were put in place specifically to keep minorities at the bottom of the economic ladder.
Remember Chuck Woolery?
He hosted The Love Connection?
He now runs the website, Save us Chuck Walery
Woolery thinks that Civil Rights laws are not needed, because African Americans already “have inalienable rights granted by God in the Constitution.“
Yea… The same Constitution which was ratified more than 170 years before the Civil Rights Act was signed into law. I guess African Americans have enjoyed a grand life between 1787 and 1964.
Woolery’s statement at CPAC
“We were born with natural rights. We don’t need civil rights. [African-Americans] don’t need civil rights. They don’t need them. They have inalienable rights granted by God in the Constitution. I mean, I’m discriminated against all the time. I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me. [I’m discriminated against] because I’m old. I’m too old to get a job as a game show host. They say, well, the guy’s 71 and in five years he’ll be 76. And I’m a one per center, and I’m absolutely discriminated against as a one per center.”
