During their appearance in South Carolina to celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr.holiday, Sens. Joe Biden (D-DE) and Christopher Dodd (D-CT) piped up about removing the evil Confederate Flag from the grounds of the state capitol. (Aren`t those South Carolinians ever going to get their minds right?) "If I were a state legislator, I`d vote for it to move off the grounds, out of the state," said Biden, who no doubt sees that piece of cloth as being solely responsible for undermining the political, social and economic gains blacks have made since the 1964 Civil Rights Act. "I don`t think it belongs on the Capitol grounds," echoed Dodd in an interview . "It belongs in a museum." Dodd went on to say there is no place for the Confederate symbol in today`s society because Americans are fighting under one flag in Iraq, Afghanistan, yada, yada, yada . . . Memo to Biden and Dodd : The Pavlovian MSM may swallow the pre-approved patriotic pap from your campaign spinners, but the rest of us ain`t buying it. You - and the nation`s so-called black leaders - are dodging the real issue, i.e., why the continuing support for an immigration policy that is hurting blacks far worse than any lousy flag possibly could? Anybody, especially politicians, can spout off about the "emotional" damage this flag allegedly does to some blacks and their guilt-ridden white allies, but how about addressing the U.S. government`s responsibility for the flood of uneducated and unskilled foreign workers who are forcing blacks to compete for jobs that are rightfully theirs?
