The mainstream media (MSM) are right. There is a political party today that has racism as a core value and is working incessantly to keep blacks down. It's the Democratic Party. Of course, since Democrat politicians never say what they really believe, most Democrat voters aren't aware they're supporting racism.
Like their predecessors who fought a war to keep slavery legal, who founded the KKK, who passed the Jim Crow laws, who fought for school segregation, and who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, modern Democrat politicians are constantly working to ensure that blacks be poor, ignorant, and totally dependent on the government.
Slave-owning Democrats believed that blacks were not really smart enough to run their own lives.
Modern Democrat talking heads constantly declare that in a country where Japanese Americans could go from Democrat-mandated prison camps to having one of the highest per household incomes in America, without Democrat help, blacks somehow can't manage to do anything. It's the same paternalistic attitude that earlier Democrats used to justify slavery.
Of course, the new slavery is different from the old: instead of picking cotton for hours in the blazing sun, modern blacks only have to vote Democrat, settle for unsafe neighborhoods, and be willing to live with the fact that their children will never get a decent education.
Charter schools and private schools have proven that they can educate black inner-city children. Black parents go to extreme lengths to get their kids in those schools because blacks love their kids, too. Yet Democrat politicians are constantly opposing those schools, and the idea of school choice, because they apparently care more about the millions the teacher unions pour into Democrat coffers than they do about black children getting a decent education.
What better recipe for securing the black vote than ensuring that blacks depend on government for life itself while using the compliant MSM to convince them that their problems are all due to Republicans – who, of course, have no power in the cities those blacks live in? This is another reason why it's necessary to make sure blacks can't get a decent education. Ignorant, uneducated people of any race are more likely to fall for propaganda, after all.
Democrat politicians have even figured out how to use taxpayer dollars to pay for keeping blacks around to vote. Their slave-owning predecessors had to at least pay to feed and house their slaves.
If you're saying, "No, this can't be so," then ponder a few "inconvenient truths."
In America, thousands of blacks are shot each year in Democrat-run cities, yet Democrats who run those cities with an iron fist do nothing that works to fix the problem. While one could believe that a non-racist might think for a few years that gun control actually protects law-abiding blacks, only someone who doesn't have black interests at heart could continue to believe so after decades of failure.
Note too that it's not thousands of whites who are getting shot in Chiraq (that is, Chicago), nor is it white neighborhoods where it's unsafe during the day. If you're black, you're 12 times more likely to be shot than if you're white in Chiraq, where Democrats have ruled since dinosaurs roamed the Illinois plains.
Democrats got far more riled up about a police officer shooting a black criminal in self-defense, according to Obama's DOJ, than they did about a nine-year-old black boy being the targeted victim of a gang hit. Why? Could it be that white liberals hate the cops and don't really care about blacks?
Democrats are also big fans of Planned Parenthood even though PP's founder was an avowed racist who viewed blacks as inferior. It's possible to be pro-choice but not a racist, of course. But it makes one wonder why Democrats aren't upset about the fact that the leading cause of death for black Americans is abortion. That Democrats continue to laud PP even though 79% of PP "clinics" are in or near minority neighborhoods is also strange if Democrats really care about blacks.The recent call by Democrats for taxpayer funding of abortions because that will "save money" is nothing less than saying that aborting the babies of people on welfare will save money. Note that when rich liberal Democrats talk about people on welfare, it's really unlikely that they're thinking about whites.
If Democrat politicians really aren't racists, it's odd that there are no Democrats saying abortion should be legal but that we should do something about the fact that a black woman is five times more likely to have an abortion than a white woman.
Then there's welfare. The entire supposed pivot of Democrats on racism is based on their support for welfare, which "rescued" blacks from poverty.
That hasn't worked too well, given that black poverty is still twice that of white poverty.
More importantly, welfare has contributed to the destruction of the black family and the resulting culture that makes it very hard for even very dedicated blacks to escape the ghetto. With 70% of blacks born to single mothers and with being in a single-parent family being the strongest correlation with drug use, criminality, teen pregnancy, and poverty, people who care about blacks, like the Republicans who pushed for welfare reform, would demand change.
If Democrats cared about blacks, they'd have noticed the problem by the 1970s and tried to fix it. Instead, they doubled down on the same failed approaches. But if their objective is to keep blacks dependent and scared, maybe those policies weren't failures after all.
Finally, one has only to look at how Democrats treat blacks who wander off the Democrats' thought plantation to see that love of blacks is not at the core of the Democratic Party. If any Republican had talked about Obama the way Democrats talk about Ben Carson, Justice Clarence Thomas, and any number of other black conservative intellectuals, he'd have been tarred and feathered by the MSM.
It's a crime that 52 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, blacks are still being oppressed by the same Democratic Party that fought so hard for slavery 153 years ago.
Stop letting Democrat politicians get away with claiming to care when their actions show that their only concern is about votes. They helicopter into the black community every election cycle, explain how it's all the Republicans' fault, and then helicopter back to their tony neighborhoods, where their kids go to great schools and it's safe to walk at night.
Don't let Democrats get away with pretending to care about blacks while they fight tooth and nail against any policy that would give blacks a chance to earn their share of the American Dream.
It's time that America threw off the Democrat legacy of preventing blacks from reaching their true potential. It's time to end the nearly 200-year-long Democrat war on blacks and bring down the last vestiges of racism in America.
