Sessions a racist? No way, say pastors

A group of black pastors are refuting charges of racism being thrown around concerning Senator Jeff Sessions and his nomination to become President-elect Trump’s attorney general.

Senator Sessions’ detractors point to some gaffes and jokes he made years ago, but his career has been marked with comments like these he made from the Senate floor in 2006 on the passing of Coretta Scott King, the widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“Our state and our nation is the better for her life, for Rosa Parks’ life, for Dr. King’s life. They changed a system that could not be defended. It was a system that treated people because of the color of their skin as second-class citizens and not equally.”

In an attempt to put the matter to rest, about a dozen black pastors spoke out in his defense Monday. One of them was Rev. Ralph Chittams of The Frederick Douglass Foundation.

“Now allegations have been made that Senator Sessions is a racist. However, an examination of his record proves otherwise,” said Chittams.

He noted that as state attorney general, Sessions prosecuted the Ku Klux Klan in Alabama, getting a death sentence and a multi-million dollar judgment that bankrupted the racist group. Session also spearheaded the effort a decade ago to honor Rosa Parks with the Congressional Gold Medal.

Pastor Troy Towns of Montgomery, Alabama, has been watching Sessions for years.

“Senator Sessions, I have observed your body of work and there has been one constant: that you always took the right stand, you’ve always taken the hard stand and the principled stand,” Towns stated. “I am not surprised that you have been selected and promoted to this lofty place, for God rewards those who stand for what is right.”

Sessions’ confirmation hearing is starting today.

    This group of Senators need to get .out of politics- their good is very limited -I think that any any cabinet member nominated should have the “book” on the Senator calling the Kettle ‘black” .

    What about Jefferson – hiding $ in his freezer- Charlie the guy from New York oven crook – any of these Senators have a record what gives them the right to question anything accept themselves

    Could it be that these pastors and others are finally looking into the content of the hearts of the obstructionist Democrats and finding only HATE!

      In the dream of MLK he was in a place where men were judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

      The Dems are the party of the KKK. Dems have done a slick job convincing people that Republicans are the real racists. But in the last 18 months, they have played the race card so much the word has lost all meaning. They might as well call Trump a “shoe wearer” or an “oxygen breather” as call him racist. If anything it now gives conservatives credibility. If the Dems call you racist it means they ran out of legitimate things to criticize about you. You must be pretty good.
