“Racism and discrimination: it’s still real, but it is being pushed further and further into a smaller corner in our nation. That’s great news that we should celebrate. If you want to be an American, the door is wide open, the front door by the way, is wide open to come in and add value to who we are, not be part of destructive conversations that belittle individuals.”
At the Washington Post recently, their fact checker tried to catch Scott in a lie about his background. Try as they might, they conceded Scott was telling the truth. The question is, why target Scott?
“He, for some reason, thought that an African-American man born in 1921 would never have picked cotton, that the fact that his grandfather owned land meant that we were privileged. Why my mother grew up on the projects, in public housing, with all that privilege, I have no idea. But here’s what he was really trying to do: He was trying to discredit my story. He was trying to discredit my grandfather, and my mother, and myself for one reason: because it doesn’t fit the narrative that in America, it’s impossible for people who look like me to rise to this position.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
