Apparently among Ben's colorful family past, somebody once owned at least one slave. Predictably as a dingbat liberal, Ben moved heaven and earth to try to suppress this information heading into the release of his upcoming movie Batman, but cover-ups never work out. The media of course is acting like this is information that somehow impugns and bring into question Affleck's liberal street cred.
Affleck is guilty only of trying to hide it. THAT is what makes him look bad. Are black people, who we are told to regard as sacred, now going to demand reparations from Affleck to rectify his wrongs?
I'll bet Al Sharpton will "suggest" that Affleck "donate" a few million to his organization in order to earn absolution for being born white and having slave owners in his distant past.
Exit question: how disingenuous and corrupt do blacks look if all whites have to do to earn their favor is pay them money?
