Rep. Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro, Arkansas has gotten some national attention for recent remarks that he made about slaver in his new book. The book, “Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative,” lays out some of Hubbard’s thoughts about America, race and all the other things that guys like him get frustrated about.
One of the most interesting parts of the book is when Hubbard basically said that slavery was a blessing for black people:
“… the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.” (Pages 183-89)
