African-American leaders lash out at English-only plan | www.tennessean.com | The Tennessean

"We cannot afford to send a message that Nashville and Tennessee is out of step with the rest of the country," she said.
If not pandering to people who wont learn the language makes one "out of step" that's cool with me.

Wow; just flippin' wow.............

Such a scenario may wind up splitting the putative 'Black' leadership and the regular community apart. Can someone say Jesse Jackson/All Sharpton clones here?

*Raises hand and voice* I can, I can. Don't forget that Jesse the pimp has added a branch of LaRaza to his "organization". Those tears the world witnessed during Obama's acceptance speech had nothing to do with Jesse being happy that the first black POTUS was elected. He was weeping at the thought of his tax payer funding being slashed and mourning the reality of his generationally lucrative pimping of the civil rights movement coming to an end.

Well the new potus would seem to agree with those black leaders. He himself is against making English the official language. OH and yes he is also for giving illegals who can not read nor write in english drivers licences.

Or, he could have simply been pandering for the votes he needed to ensure his election. Either way, time will tell. As I stated on many occasions, those in our government who advocate amnesty will wish they had died and gone to hell instead of trying to cram another one down the throats of angry, fed up, and unemployed Americans.

Then why is he appointing so many pro-illegals to his cab? He will deliver to hispanics what ever they ask.

I remember Geraldo Rivera said the main reason Barack won the election is because over 70% of registered Hispanic voters came out to vote for him. I doubt very much that Obama's Hispanic support would have been that high if they saw him as a man who is tough on cracking down on illegal immigration. They would have called Obama a racist and would have just stayed home and not bothered to vote at all if they thought that Barack Hussein Obama was going to politically get in bed with groups like the Minutemen.

Remember that not all Hispanic voters are pro amnesty either----------too; many of them are of Cuban background who tend to vote Republican as well.
