Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Friday, June 23, 2006

And here's to you Mr. Robinson.

Gents, it has been some time since I last posted, though I trust you understand why. I intended to mark my resurgence with an exegesis on the Summa Politicae Catholicae, or at least a discussion of the greatest action movie of all time. But, alas, that will all have to wait, for I stumbled upon a terrific political ad for Vernon Robinson, a black Republican Winston-Salem City Councilman who was nearly elected to Congress in 2004, and is set to run again:

His radio ad is equally incredible. Read his personal statement here. Needless to say, this man needs be elected.

Michigan has its own great black statesman in R. Vincent Green, a black republican from East Lansing who ran for state senator, though ultimately lost. Mr. Green is an excellent trial attorney, who I personally had the privilege to see in action. He deported himself with a great amount of professionalism, skill and knowledge. When a colleague demonstrated surprise at his political affiliation, Mr. Green responded, "You don't think the Democrats are responsible for what blacks have achieved?" Mr. Green understood the defamation the Democrats have perpetrated in order to secure the black vote.

The country needs Mr. Robinson, as well as Mr. Green.
