What has the Democrats done for the Black Community lately?
We've heard Donald Trump ask this question with much frequency lately and, the fact is, he has a point!
Many Black Communities throughout the country are contemplating this question as the inner cities are deteriorating and welfare numbers continue to rise -- even in Salisbury. The truth is, Democrats have had a long history of making many promises to garner votes but after the election, there is no honeymoon - it goes straight to bust. So why does Black America continue to vote for them?
It's no secret - Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican - as well as local hero, Harriet Tubman. A few months ago, here on Salisbury News, a quote from Malcolm X was published, showing his disdain for the Liberals in America.
It is perplexing because as Sean Hannity reminds us everyday, the numbers within the Black Communities are staggering and have risen even higher under Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton panders so badly to this demographic, it becomes downright insulting. Her 'black voice' is condescending because you can't much whiter than her; however, as seen last week at a function in DC at the Black Women's Agenda Symposium, the audience ate up her "Black Girl Magic" comment, adoring this corniness.
Remember, it was President Bill Clinton whom passed the three strike rule, which resulted in over a third of the Black male population spending longer sentences in prison than any other demographic. In fact, Clinton, while discussing it, described many young men (gangs) were "Superpredators... that should be brought to heel." A term that should be highly offensive considering its negative connotations especially for Black men.
Now more single mother households are in existence within this community than any other and yet, they have a harder time making ends meet. Some single parents strapped with the multiple roles as both parents now have to hold down two or possibly three jobs to raise their families.
While Clinton may promise Black America the moon, you can't deny those promises are often short or non-existent once votes are tallied. The payback has been nothing more than welfare handouts that, in the end, stifle not propagate personal growth and self-actualization, which goes towards building esteem, self-reliance and healthy communities.
Rock star Prince surprised everyone with his declaration that he was a Republican when he came out and spoke up for the party. His famous quote regarding her personal principles was all-inspiring but it seems it fell on deaf ears.
Trump promises to work hard for you and help create better paying, full-time jobs. Unlike Clinton, he's actually created a job or two in his lifetime - and he doesn't have different pay for women verses men; therefore, wouldn't it stand to reason, he would repeat the same deal for you? He doesn't have years of failed public service or the shroud of corruption and criminality. Even if he followed through with only 75% of his plan, it's still better than 100% of what you've received from the Liberals' Dudley Do-Right but never come to pass plans.
So the choice is yours... With so many prominent people in the Black Community whom have gone on to great things warning against Liberalism, perhaps its time to take their wisdom to heart and change horses. Try something different.
As Trump says all the time now, "What do you have to lose?"
How say you?
Incidentally, Happy belated Constitution Day! Hope you all read the Constitution in celebration of our great ruling document!
