A MESSAGE FROM ALLEN WEST REGARDING ‘TRUE RACISM’: ALLEN WEST CALLS OUT BIGOTS WHO THINK BLACK CONSERVATIVES NEED ‘APPROVAL’ FROM THEIR ‘MASTERS’ - Rep. Col. West blasted the bigots who want to subjugate him. “I really feel that it is [demeaning] to me to think that I need some individual to ‘justify’ me and my existence. Look, I went through 22 years being in the military. I have a bachelor‘s degree and 2 master’s degrees, and for these white liberals to believe they can have this condescending manner toward black conservatives, that we need to have approval from our quote unquote, I guess “masters,” for us to be able to speak — see that’s where the true racism really lies… is with the white liberals who don’t want to see someone such as myself, that broke away from their dependency class, and is out here and able to possibly contend against them with the policies that they are promoting that is destroying the black community.”
4/2/2012 (Updated 4/3/2012 12:09:18 AM) - A doll of a baby hanging in a tree in front of a home in Endwell triggered fears of racism Monday, among members of the area’s black community.
After being contacted about the situation, FOX 40 News went to the site, to investigate what the circumstances were, and in an attempt to get both sides of the story.
It clearly is a doll, hanging at least partly by it’s neck, and it appears to be black.
It was noticed Monday, about 16 feet up in a tree, in front of a house, which sits close to a “Welcome to Endwell” sign, and an American flag:
Charles Moleski, who lives at the house, says his kids were swinging it around with twine, and threw it up there in the fall, and he didn’t think much about it:
Sparano: “Did it dawn on you that it might look a little peculiar, or offensive?”
Moleski: “If I had, and if I had given it a second thought, I would have removed it before today, so definitely, it wasn’t supposed to pose any sort of message to the community. I’m really sorry for any bad feelings about that.”
Moleski says the doll is not black—but from certain angles, looks like it might be, because of mold and natural weathering.
He says it was hanging not only by its neck, but also under one of its arms.
Helen Higgenbotham is the president of the local chapter of the NAACP—and went to the site, after several people told her what they saw:
“You can see the baby is hanging by its neck. The arms are in front of him. so, I don’t think, actually, I know, that the baby was not hanging by its arms.. It was hanging by its neck.”
At a previously scheduled meeting of the NAACP Monday night, several members said that they couldn’t understand how someone would not realize the reactions the doll would trigger in African-Americans:
Denise Yull, a member of the NAACP grew up in the South:
“I’m also a black person who has a family history of someone who was lynched, so it has all kinds of meaning for me, you know, I know what it’s like to look into the faces of black people, and see them fearful of whites.”
Moleski, who explains that his wife, who is the mother of his children, is half-black, says he regrets what’s happened:
“I feel sorry that I neglected to remove it before now. It was just a circumstance—a thing that happened that my children did, and I don’t think anyone meant any harm to the community, you know, any kind of a message.

>his kids “hang” a dark-skinned baby from a rope
>mfw the south is turning into Hispanola
>Kids hang white doll
>White doll is exposed to the elements for so long that the “skin” of the doll turns black.
>Black person (finally) sees it and screams “racism”.
