The Black McCains: An American Story

I think it speaks for itself, I have no comments...

The Black McCains: An American Story

Interesting piece from the Wall Street Journal about African-American descendants of slaves from the McCain plantation in Mississippi. 

Evidently, they believe that they are related to the white McCains by bloodline as well. But in this case blood is not thicker than water... because these McCains are supporters of Barack Obama. 

The black McCains of today were raised to believe that they were blood relatives of the white McCains, dating back to slavery times. White McCains say they're unaware of any biological connection between the families. A spokesman for Sen. McCain declined to comment.

  1. On the heels of Andy Dalton's epic stinker against the Browns, the Bengals aren't giving up on their embattled franchise quarterback.


    Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson on Friday accepted plenty of blame for a performance that saw Dalton tie a career low in completions (10) and suffer his worst outing in terms of completion percentage (30.3) and passer rating (2.0).

    "I'm joined at the hip with him. I understand that's the way it goes," said Jackson, per ESPN.com's Coley Harvey. "I have not run from that. As he gets killed, I get killed. That's the way it goes. That's part of the business.

    "But I don't want us to think we're going to cheap sale jerseys have an issue with Andy. We're not. We're going to coach Andy. We're going to help Andy get to where he needs to wholesale jerseys shop be. That's my job. We're going to coach him, continue to get him better, NFL Jerseys continue to grow."

    Jackson has guided a laundry list of NFL Nike Roshe Run quarterbacks, but he Nike Free Run didn't need to dig deep to find the best example of a passer bouncing back from a disastrous start.

    "The example's him," said Jackson, pointing to Dalton's solid outings in Week 8 and Week 9 after a messy showing in Cincy's 27-0 loss to the Colts in Week 7.

    We don't doubt that Dalton will correct some of the flaws that NFL Jerseys Store plagued him against the Browns, but Bengals new nike nfl jerseys fans can't be blamed for feeling a wave of unease over the play of their franchise quarterback.

    Instead of making the leap some Nike Air Max 90 predicted under Jackson, it's more of the same from a signal-caller known for turning out his ugliest handiwork when the spotlight burns brightest.
