Documentary: Runaway Slave

Don't let the title fool you. This is in the modern day, a story about Black Conservatives in American. It looks like something to watch when it's available. According to the website @ this film is coming in 2011.

I've got to disagree with the Pastor CL Bryant. I don't believe the Constitution guarantees our rights, but I do believe in the idea of natural rights. Our rights as enshrined in our Constitution are rights that can't merely be provided to us by a human document. Our Constitution was written by humans and unfortunately they can be taken away by humans. I would say you can interpret natural rights as those given to us by a higher power.

Either way I hope you look at this video and by 2011 we should have something to watch.

Oh yeah, one other thing. We hear a lot of things about how Blacks grew to join the Democratic camp. For some it started with Roosevelt's New Deal and as mentioned in the video the trend started during the 1960s Civil Rights movement. For the sake of discussion if Blacks were to change their devotion to the Democratic Party and the Progressive ideas that exist within, it's safe to say that this could take a generation or two.

To be sure, I'm not certain it will happen. Then again one could be surprised.
