GUEST,Taliesn Harry Belafonte on L.K. show. Amazing! (69* d) RE: Harry Belafonte on L.K. show. Amazing! 17 Oct 02

"It is difficult for me to understand why people like Belafonte can complain about the fact that minorites are never given the opportunity to occupy important positions in government, then bitch and berate them when they are."

Well then try this one on for size, there, Doug R. At the time Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall held a short press conference to announce he was retiring ( and whom died shortly after his leaving ) he was asked what his opinion of Bush's new token appointee, Clarence Thomas, was and the quote that still resounds in my mind's ear was " A black snake is just as likely to bite you as a white snake ".
( And I don'ts recalls no Justice Thurgood ever appearing in none dem shows at de Apollo let alone do Hollywood. )

Meanwhile add to that the fact that the Republican Congress is looking mighty enemic of late now that their only *ever* black
representative , J.C.Watts , is retiring.
