Republican State Representative Jon Hubbard of Arkansas in his self-published book explains the bright side of slavery:
“The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.”
As if he hasn’t insulted black people enough Hubbard goes on to argue that a life of slavery would have been “likely much better” than a life back in Africa.
In the book titled Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative, he wonders if it will “ever become possible for black people in the United States of America to firmly establish themselves as inclusive and contributing members of society within this country.
Does anyone want to tell him who the President of the United States is, or should we let him figure that one out on his own?
It’s shocking that in this century someone’s reasoning is still so backward and warped.
