John McCain Boycotts Family Reunions with the Black McCains of Slavery

In the United States, we are so used to assuming that there is a solid line between white and Black people that we are surprised to learn that there are Blacks in the American South who are direct descendants of the descendants of John McCain who is now running for president. Eve though we know that whites owned Black slaves and that white men sired children with Black slave women, yet there remains a deep denial and fear of acknowledging the obvious fact that many whites alive now have Black relatives whom they need to acknowledge and invite to their family reunions. The fact that they are Black is no reason to ignore them, because "blood is thicker than skin color."

And yet, although John McCain's brother Joe goes to family reunions with his Black relatives who are McCain's, the Republican presidential nominee boycotts these reunions, having no apparent interest in meeting with those of his relatives whose skin is brown. This says something very bitter and shameful about the character of John Sydney McCain. Watch the videos below for more documentary information:

No surprise there. McCain is so racist he won't even meet with his family members.

Today, courtesy of 9 News, we find out that Sarah Palin STILL DOESN'T KNOW what the role of the VP is. With video

Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, “What does the Vice President do?”

PALIN: That’s something that Piper would ask me! … [T]hey’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

Sorry, Governor, but that is NOT what the Constitution says.
The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.
In other words she thinks she's Cheney#2 but really she's Bush #3.
