Amazing photo from the New York Times, check out the full gallery of images here!
What struck me was not the sign, but the pride that the woman showed by rising above it with her and her daughter’s attire. I remember that era though not being from the southern(democrat) area we had no such thing. Juxtapose that photo with the lack of pride in the projects we see now. That is what welfare does. It strips one of pride and dignity.
You are right about welfare; it is a version of hate, the perversion of an idea that a person is incapable of supporting and advancing and achieving on their own in life. It is the Progressives means of control and of obtaining power and dominance.
And I understand it for those who really need it, but to those who are capable, it’s such a waste of human potential.
For those who really need it, true I have no problem. Otherwise it is a form of economic slavery.
Like Ryan, you have a good heart. Never lose it.
I used to hear stories of such racial divisions from my grandparents and parents; we need to make sure such photos and the stories of them are maintained intact and honestly presented.
Hate of any kind is used as a means of power and control of one person over another; it is the ultimate poison, the ultimate killer, and the ultimate damnation by those who use it to justify their own insane views of the world.
Hate is wrong; and we must fight against it each generation unto the end of time itself.
Вот он магильщик пролетариата! I am sorry it’s not translatable.
Russian – rough translation into english…
Here it is the gravedigger of the proletariat!
I like it.
And it was a god-fearing, conservative, republican president who gave his life to make sure the blight of slavery – our “birth defect,” as Condi Rice aptly put it – was finally eradicated.
I imagine that Mr. Lincoln is disappointed with all of the racial divisiveness in this presidential election cycle – especially from the hypocritical Left (and some of them descendants of the slaves he freed!).
Selective history at work once again.
This picture, and others were taken well after the Civil War and Lincoln’s wonderful job.
It was Kennedy and Johnson who led the country in abolishing the racism in the 1960’s.
P.S. President Kennedy and President Johnson were Democrats!!!
It was congressional democrats that were blocking the civil rights bill. Chief among them was Robert Byrd and Al Gore’s father. It was republicans that helped get the bill passed!!
I always love how Republicans refuse to give any credit to a Democratic leader.
It must be happy in your little world.
Just like your little world, in which there are no black Republicans?
-I am a proud member of the zero percent-
That is your choice.
I respect that.
I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One –
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and
that’s a problem
for us since they’ve got something now they never had
before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to
do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something,
just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”—LBJ
Just thought you might like to read some quotes from that famous EMANCIPATOR Lyndon Johnson. Read them carefully. Then you might begin to understand how WELFARE was CREATED TO KEEP THE AMERICAN NEGROES TIED TO THE FEDERAL PLANTATION.
You are a fool if you think the DEMOCRAPS truly cared about American blacks. From the very beginning they have been corralled and kept in servitude. Now they are in servitude to the left. The KKK was the jihad wing of the Democrap party. You are ignorant about history. The Republican Party is the only political party CREATED TO ABOLISH SLAVERY. Martin Luther King was a Republican. George Wallace/BullConnor/Lynchings/and the KKK – all belong to the DEMOCRAPS.
Where is this idea that welfare is only a black thing coming from? is it the media? I would like people to know that there are whites on welfare also, welfare is not just a black thing. Thank you
You are very right. The commenter’s statement is valid though, because back in 1963 there weren’t a lot of people on welfare as there is today. There were people of all races receiving aid, but the dems promoted it and used it as a ploy to keep the black people down. Which was easy to do, especially in the South where they were treated as “lesser” people and couldn’t find gainful employment as easily as whites. LBJ had a great dislike of African-Americans. I was 16 back then, and believe me, we have made a lot of progress in civil rights. What we have steadily lost, sadly, is civility. Today we have a twisted, perverse definition of “civil rights”, brought about due to the loss of morals. Now, we have a fraud president in the Whitehouse whose intent is to weaken this great country of ours, giving it over to socialist ways. God help us…
Against the majority of the people! Whether you like to hear it or not, it was against the majority!
Thank God we left that stupidity behind.
In this sad period of American History, many clubs, hotels and other places were also prohibited for Jews.
If you ask me whether Jews forgot, forgive the whole thing…
Well, I didn’t.
That is a beautiful mother and child. What a contrast to today.
