Race Whore William Loren Katz Complains: “Teddy Roosevelt Was A Fraud”

Racism Through Rose-Colored Glasses

Quote:

“Bill Keller, who served for eight years as executive editor of The New York Times, and is the author of a children’s book on Nelson Mandela, recently wrote the Sunday Times Book Review’s front page essay on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book The Bully Pulpit, which examines Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. Keller extolled them as “politicians of stature and conscience.”

President Theodore Roosevelt

“Really? As presidents neither made any serious effort to improve race relations or protect minorities from violence. Neither challenged the forces promulgating segregation, discrimination, and lynching.”

–End Quote–

Lynching? Segregation?

I would suggest that any adult lacking historical context to this degree go back to college (If they went in the first place). Or, at least, read this:

Roosevelt’s Speech on Race, 1905

Quote:

"The attitude of the North toward the 
negro is far from what it should be and there is 
need that the North also should act in good faith 
upon the principle of giving to each man what is 
justly due him, of treating him on his worth as a 
man, granting him no special favors, but denying 
him no proper opportunity for labor and the reward 
of labor. But the peculiar circumstances of the 
South render the problem there far greater and far 
more acute."
