In reference to Ben Wattenberg's article (Editorial Pages, Aug. 18) about the "black" vote, I have the following opinion:
What difference does it matter to any white person how black people vote, unless of course he is a member in good standing of the Republican Party? The one party that has at times felt the loss of said vote.
This is another divisive tool to rob blacks of what little political clout they do have, with the hope of stunting the growth of black political power. No one knows this better than the Republican Party.
Why should black people vote for a party whose President tried to kill affirmative action? Who tried to fill every judicial post available with known anti-civil rights appointees? Whose "Negro" civil rights commissioner admitted he was more concerned about the "rights of the white male" than affirmative action.
