The Background: In an interview with New Nation of Islam, Congressman Bennie Thompson claimed disillusionment with the government is a new thing and only because of race.
That kind of attitude has just been around for the last five and a half years. You know what I'm saying? See, everybody before Barack Obama was President who got elected, got elected on some platform of coming to make government work for all the people. Now all of a sudden, government is the worst thing in the world since a black man became president.
