Federal Appeals Court Judges for the D.C. Circuit forgot about the 13th Amendment!

In ruling against President Obama’s “recess appointments” that contradicts 150 years of practice by Republican and Democratic Administrations; Federal Circuit Court Judges; David B. Sentelle, Karen LeCraft Henderson and Thomas B. Griffith must have missed;


Abraham Lincoln’s 13th Amendment to the Constitution!


But why should we be surprised?


Frederick Douglass gave us the answer on September 25 1883, as to why Republican Legislators would be so unrelenting on President Obama!


“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress.


If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]
