White Atlanta Politicians Want to Kill Blacks and Deny Civil Rights

Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin Stoops to New Lows in Fulton County Commission race.

She participated in a hitpiece along with Andrew Young and John Lewis on Lee Morris. Imagine the controversy had a white candidates said this about a black democrat. This is just morally reprehensible and disgusting. I've met the Morris' and there's no danger of them starting a negro holocaust nor turn back the civil rights clock. Gotta "love" the hyperbole of racial politics.

"This is Congressman John Lewis."

"And I'm Mayor Shirley Franklin"

"And I'm Andy Young"

(John Lewis) "On November 7th we face the most dangerous situation we ever have. If you think fighting off dogs and water hoses in the sixties was bad, imagine if we sit idly by and let the right-wing Republicans take control of the Fulton County Commission."

(Shirley Franklin) "The efforts of Martin and Coretta King, hose Williams, Maynard Jackson and many others will be lost. That's why we must stand up and we must turn out the vote for the Democrats on Election Day."

(Andy Young) "And especially for John Eaves for Fulton County Commission Chairman. Unless you want them to turn back the clock on equal rights and human rights and economic opportunity for all of us, vote for John Eaves as Fulton County Chairman"

(Lewis) "Your very life may depend on it."

(John Eaves) "This message paid for by the committee to elect John Eaves."

It's this kind of garbage that reaffirms my complete contempt for the Democratic party in general.

The real bad news?

The Republicans aren't much better.
