No, Monsieur Foncteur, for this kind of
racism, you must repair to our beloved
rulers in the national American Left:
"....(New York's U.S. Congressman Charles)
Rangel strove to) inflame racial passions,
saying that the present volunteer military
would mean that (America's) MINORITIES would
fill THE BULK of the BODY BAGS that came home.
"This racially inflammatory charge was not
based on any fact of US military operations
past or present - but that didn't bother Rangel
who belongs to the club of racial demagogues
on the Democratic side of the House.
" On Sunday, the New York Times printed the pictures
of all 27 servicemen who have died in this war.
Two-thirds - or 19 of the 27 - are young men of
white European origin.
" The other 8 are Black and Hispanic, or about
their proportion of the population as a whole.
"... what these grim statistics do show is that
Charles Rangel is a racist demagogue who
means his own country (which means his
own people) no good."
