Why on earth would anyone want to make blacks pick crops? Aren't there enough Mexicans coming in to do it?

Well, George, You are right. I don't think many blacks have picked crops for a long time. Most are in the cities. Not too many of any stripe wants to do that nowadays either.

I'm a english, irish, german, cherokee, black dutch, and who knows what else, light skinned American. When I was about 12 years old, I picked cotton until my fingers bled, and hurt like the devil. That was 50+ years ago, I still shudder when I see cotton growing in the field.
Brandon, a 9-year-old black kid, attended a campaign rally hosted by Michelle Obama. A cameraman interviewed Brandon, who was there with his dad. "Why does (Obama) need to win?" he was asked. "Because if Mitt Romney wins," he replied, "we'll be going back to the crop fields. We'll be picking crops." Off-screen, his father could be heard laughing.

From whom does a 9-year-old hear that Obama's opponent is a racist who, to quote the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, wants "to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws"?

Brandon's father might alert his son to a recent column...
