Beto attempts to spin ancestral slave ownership as positive political point

The racial divide in America is deepening, and that should be concerning to all of us.

You see, this nation was founded on the idea that all are created equal – with “created” being the key phrase.  That means that your creator brought both you and everyone else into this world on equal footing.  Any prejudices you hold today are learned behavior, not gifts of God or country.

While this all seems like a foolproof way to denounce racism, it’s not that simple.  America is still full of disillusioned and divided cultural sects who are being driven ever further apart by the mainstream media and the political manipulators who strong-arm the daily news cycle.

Lately, this division has been focused on the idea of reparations for American slavery – a conversation that tends to wax and wane in the public eye every few decades.  But now, thanks perhaps in some part to the “woke-ness” of the 2020 democratic candidates, the entire conservation has turned a bit absurd.

For instance, possibly in fear of being outed by a competitor, Beto O’Rourke has gone ahead and told the world that he and his wife are both descended from slave owners.

“Something that we’ve been talking about in town hall meetings – the legacy of slavery in the United States – now has a much more personal connection,” O’Rourke said. “I was recently given documents showing that both Amy and I are descended from people who owned slaves.”

O’Rourke included a link to a article he wrote titled “Rose and Eliza,” in reference to two slaves one his distance relatives owned.

“A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote.

He added that records also showed that an ancestor of his wife, Amy, owned slaves while another was part of the Confederate Army.

Beto has been slipping in the polls as of late, possibly affecting his decision to come forward with this information now.

As it has been for a bulk of the 2020 race, Beto’s bizarre and sudden admission may be more a case of attempting to garner a slice of the attention-seekers’ pie than it is a true, heartfelt epiphany on this disclosure.
