black people are certainly not being helped by the democratic party as it exists today.

the push for illegal immigration by the democratic party has hurt their employment prospects:

The black community has suffered the hardest during the economic downturn, with an unemployment rate that currently stands at 15.6%. That's a much higher rate than for all of the other races that the Labor Department tracks, including Hispanics (12.7%), whites (9.3%) and Asians (7.3%).

The jobless rate for blacks has also grown much faster than for other races.

The difference between the unemployment rates for blacks and whites fell to an all-time low of 3.5 percentage points in August 2007.

Of course they will. How that is accomplished, is the issue.

It seems as though he is saying that blacks cost society more than other racial group in his state. Does he also think that blacks cost society more than other racial group in the whole country? Does he think that blacks cost society more than other racial group in the whole world? Is that what he is saying?

Does he have any evidence to support this claim? I didn't read any of the articles. Does he have any statistics? Does he provide any links? Did anyone even ask him to provide a link?

Lindsey Graham is a bigot -- when it comes to Americans. He's all for foreign nationals here illegally because he like most of the democrats and all the neo-cons is not for the American people, he's for the big corporations and international interests.

Graham is one of the neo-cons that can't pander enough to La Raza, and believes illegals are willing to do the dirt paying jobs that black Americans won't do.

End Medicaid now! STOP WASTEFUL SPENDING!!
No he doesn't speak the truth. What about all his beloved illegals? Does he really believe they come here and take out health insurance policies? No, of course he doesn't believe that and if foreigners here illegally use Medicaid, no big deal to him, it's the Americans he'll focus his outrage against.

"My state, with 30% African-American citizens, a lot of low income people in South Carolina, is going to cost my state a billion dollars, that's the same old stuff that I object to. That's not change we can believe in. That's sleazy."


Graham has proven what I've said all along, that a LOT of the opposition to health care is that a LOT of whites don't want to support something that may help a black person. For saying those things, I've been accused of playing the race card by several posters, but it is the sad truth. I appreciate Senator Graham betraying his racist feelings. I guess he doesn't count those citizens of his state as his constituents. Graham is the sleazy one. Palin fans will love him for those remarks.
Graham is as sleazy as they come. He needs to be tossed out of office. He's not working for the American people of any race. Let's hope the people of South Carolina do whatever they must to boot him out of office, even if requires voting republican in the primaries to make sure he doesn't go up against a democrat he could likely defeat.

Lindsey Graham Countdown Clock

South Carolinians do not want amnesty, but Graham is pushin for exactly what nobody in his state wants. He defies 90% of the states Americans so he can appease criminals and La Raza.

Blacks have more young out-of-wedlock births than any group!! OVER 70 PERCENT!!

That leads to welfare......crime....drop outs......more unwed mothers and fatherless children........drug use.......alcoholism......joblessness..........

ALL OF THIS ADDS UP TO NEEDY FOLK ON THE TAX PAYER DIME!

So, with all of that going for us, we will be sucking up the "FREE" healthcare.

No links were needed. This hate filled man spouted this rubbish off the top of his head like he was something he does dailly. He is so angry at the entire Black race. It was disgraceful! He likes to remind everyone he voted for Judge Sotomayor. Yes he did thinking it would garner minority votes. IMO
The time has come for him to GO!
