And because a disproportionate number of African-Americans patronize Wishard, opposition by predominantly white tax protestors makes it appear, to some in our Black community, to be racially based.Hey, I'll gladly be lumped in the company of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck over your ilk anyday, Amos. And Mayor Ballard just recently named this most divisive man as co-chair of the 2010 census effort in Indianapolis. This would be the same man who bad-mouthed Ballard repeatedly during the 2007 campaign and has repeatedly called him and members of his staff racists. You see, Amos Brown only cares about process when it affects members of his race. Ironically, the real racism in this debate is his support of a health care system in Marion County that quite obviously seeks to segregate the county's poor, minority population from the health care facilities that primarily serve middle and upper class whites. In a truly color-blind health care delivery system, all Marion County residents could choose the hospital of their choice, and our tax dollars would follow them--sort of like school choice. No, Brown wants no part of that. He wants a separate hospital to serve this population. In other words, he favors segregated health care services in this county. Go figure.
Most opponents advocating voting “no” are fair-minded. Their opposition is based on long standing convictions against tax increases. Unfortunately, though, one nefarious blogger’s advocacy against the Wishard referendum is blinded by his bigotry and racism that approaches that of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck and their ilk.
Other than the bigoted blogger, I respect the views of the referendum opponents, but I feel strongly that they’re wrong.

Race-Baiting Amos Brown Calls Opponents Of Wishard Referendum Racists
You'll find no member of the African-American community in Indianapolis who promotes racial divisions and general hatred within his community towards whites more than radio talk show host Amos Brown, shown at left with his anti-Semitic, anti-American, anti-gay and anti-white friend he calls The Honorable, Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan. Brown has become infamous for his weekly columns in the Indianapolis Recorder that repeat the tired-old meme that white folks are out to get the black folks in this town. This week, the renowned racist takes on the Wishard referendum and its opponents, including this blog. Of course, we're all just a bunch of racists who want to harm the black folks according to Brown. His pathetic rantings follow:
