The Pot Calling The Kettle Black
Legislatures in many states are planning to apologize, some have already, for their historical preferential treatment of one class of citizens in America over another.
Pat is not in any position to talk about the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. When Pat Buchanan was 'a Presidential candidate', he was loud, caustic, abrasive and insensitive!
Pat has been spewing his anti-non-white emigre venom against non-white emigres entering into this country for about 20 years now.
Pat, and the so-called silent majority that he makes reference to, ought to be thanking black Americans for the opportunity to prosper in a nation that was built mostly on the backs of black detainees. Even Mt. Vernon planatation, home of the first President was built and maintained by black labor!
And thank God that the silent group that Pat referred to is not a majority after all. I suspect that the group that he calls a majority represents Pat, and a few of his ilk!
The majority of Americans, white and non-white, have spoken up and out against those wrongdoings which Pat seeks to protect.
Even the capitol of the old Confederate South, their State legislature have already apologized.
You need to get in the real world Pat!
Peace & Grace
Reverend C. Solomon
Addenda: It is us to civil liberterians to speak up for the right of Free Speech, as protected by the Constitution of the United States of America, which Pat
would apparently prefer to suppress!
I have watched and listened to Pat Buchanan for about 20 years now, on several

Occassionally, he will provide the most cogent analysis of anyone on the show.
However, when it comes to racial politics, Pat has a mental block. His
condescension, excelled only by his former colleague Robert Novak,
However, what can you expect from a guy who was Richard Nixon's speechwriter!
