Ousted Tea Party Leader
I am quite confused why They ousted Republican Express Tea Party Leader. Mark Williams was kicked out over his letter to Abraham Lincoln. The only thing I feel that was wrong was the fact that he acted as if the colored people wrote it. Other than that everything else seems to be ok as far as I am concerned. As long as he is open we know where we stand. I see the relationship between blacks and whites is still the same. However he has it mixed up the colored people don't want to be slaves only the colored leaders, white Republican leaders and a few Democratic leaders want that. It is needed because like Henry Berry said while addressing the Virginia House of Delegates in 1832 describing the situation as existing at that time in many parts of the south. "We have as far as possible closed every avenue by which light may enter the salves mind. If we could extinguish their capacity to see the light our work would be complete. They would be on a level with the beats of the field and we should be safe. I am not certain that we can do it . But we must find out a process and that ona plea of Necessity". So it is necessary for whites to have us on a level with the beats of the field so they can feel safe. I personally found the letter to be very amusing myself. I almost choked I laughed so hard, I didn't take the letter serious at all. Even though I know he is serious. I think that he should be given another chance. He was just expressing how he felt, leave that man alone. He has the right to say whatever he wants to say and feel anyway he wants to feel. That is what freedom of speech is all about. Besides he don't have to like me, I'm cool with that.
