Geraldine Ferraro Dies At 75 with 2 Dis-eases

Geraldine Ferraro Dies At 75 failing to apologizes to the American people or the AA community. As a VP candidate, Ferraro was the Democratic Sarah Palin of old. Ferraro faced two dis-eases. She died of of blood cancer but also suffered from Cultural Poisoning.

I send my condolences to her family and friends. It is an ancient African tradition that we must all learn from the life of our public figures, good and not so good, as they leave this plane. This is done not to throw stones, but that our lives are better having understood the full measure of the person.

Having said that, I think America would have been standing on sounder ground if Mondale Ferraro won in 1984, instead of Reagan Bush. The Dem team with its faults, would not have attacked the unions and womans rights as the Republicans have.

Hetep and Respect let it be known in this moment of history.

"...As Joe Conason noted on Salon back in 2008:

Until lately, Ferraro was an admired waxwork, a symbol of national progress and a brief entry in a child’s textbook. Then she confided her opinion of the Democratic presidential front-runner to a California newspaper. “If [Barack] Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”..."

As far as I know, Geraldine Ferraro did not apologize to the President, the American people or the AA community.

As my mother would say, a word to the wise should be sufficient.If you do not correct your errors in life they will go to the grave with you.

May our sister RIP.
