It would appear that blacks sit atop the pinnacle of privilege in our society, being eligible for free money, receiving often ludicrously inappropriate hiring and promotion priority, and enjoying immunity from criticism in establishment forums. However, there are blacks even today who are subject to bigotry. They are the rare and brave breed known as black conservatives. One example is Clint Tarver, whose business was set upon by the union goons running amok in Michigan. From I Support Clint:
Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.
Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.
Why pick on Clint? Maybe because he was hired to provide catering for the Americans for Prosperity tent that was ripped down (with people inside) by Chris Opalewski and other union gorillas. Or maybe it was because of this:
Romney’s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club. Before he spoke, Republicans heard “The Star-Spangled Banner” sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. “Mitt’s a good, Christian man like I am,” explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.
There are few coincidences in the world of politics — and even fewer examples of liberal tolerance toward blacks who won’t toe their political line.
