Keith Ellison is a racist

Don't be shocked.  You know it.  You all knew it.  He's a black muslim; you knew he was a racist from the moment he took the national stage.

Democratic Minnesota Representative and Democratic National Committee chairman candidate Keith Ellisononce called for slavery reparations and a separate country for black Americans in a university newspaper column. 
Ellison’s writings while a student at the University of Minnesota law school– under the name “Keith Hakim”– raised eyebrows when he announced his first congressional run in 2006. The Weekly Standardnoted that “Ellison refers to ‘Minister Louis Farrakhan,’ defends Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and speaks in the voice of a Nation of Islam advocate… ‘Hakim’ demands reparations for slavery and throws in a demand for an optional separate homeland for American blacks.”

This is why I don't get upset at white racists calling for segregation; you could take both the white racists and the black racists, and after changing a few names here and there, they would sound almost exactly alike.

The only real difference here is that Keith Ellison wants Whitey to pay money for something that happened a century and a half ago, while I presume the KKK and the Skinheads do not.  Other than that, what's the real difference?

Er, Keith? (I can call you 'Keith', right? Or would you just prefer, "You fucking idiot"?)

That "optional separate homeland for American blacks"? Been tried. It's called "Liberia". It has failed. It might best be described as a "third world shithole", with an average annual per capita income of just $881. (I'll bet the suit you were wearing when sworn into office cost more than that.)

You are welcome to move there, if you think it is better, and they would be happy to accept you (or, more accurately, your wealth, since they can't manage to run an economy worth a damn).

Flights from DC to Monrovia depart routinely. Catch the first one you think would be appropriate.

I think he might prefer "The Honorable Douchebag from Minneapolis-Somalia".
