After 50 years of voting almost exclusively Democrat the black community is still overwhelmingly plagued by poverty, crime, drug abuse, and broken families. In fact, since Barack Obama became president, fewer African Americans own homes and businesses than under George Bush and their workforce participation is at its lowest rate since the 1970’s. So much for “hope” and “change”. Regardless of what the NAACP, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson tell their brethren, the Democratic party is driven by a selfish desire to blackmail blacks with the threat of losing their welfare, social entitlements, instead of empowering their constituents to find a better life through education, opportunity and hard work. Why you ask? Because it’s far easier to incite fear, anger, for personal gain rather than to roll up your sleeves, employ sound economic and moral principles, and craft a competent plan designed to unconditionally return accountability and integrity to our communities and civil institutions. Yes, John F. Kennedy would be considered a Right Wing Republican by today’s liberal standards – the Barack Obama litmus test – and therefore would no longer be welcome, let alone recognizable by Democrats. This transformation is all the more disturbing considering our President openly embraces the same Communist radicalism JFK so tragically died fighting.
As long as professional bigots, propagandists, continue to hustle and brainwash minorities solely for financial benefit and to win political office – shamelessly blaming white America for their struggles and politicizing events like Ferguson to distract from their egregious failures – future generations of blacks are guaranteed to suffer the same tragic fate. And as long as race baiting and victimization politics continues to remain at the forefront of the Democratic platform, which only hinders progress and gives birth to absurd political correctness and juvenile ploys, the black community – if not all of America – will forever remain in a perpetual cycle of division, degradation and disdain. The truth is racism exists in every facet of society and we are all victims: white, black, brown, Asian, everyone! However, we do not use such universal realities as an excuse for our own failures or to conveniently attack others because it suits our misguided beliefs. People can either hide behind obstacles, the inevitable challenges of life, or they can do everything in their power to overcome them and achieve their goals. Only one has a future; only one commands respect. We can’t all be rock stars or athletes, infinitely rich and irrevocably famous, but everyone is fully capable of being productive and responsible members of society. The problem is far too many simply refuse and our co-dependent government is all too willing to pay it backwards!
Without strong families, respect for one another, and an insatiable work ethic – an innate desire to forge a better tomorrow – the Civil Rights Era will become nothing more than a bookmarked anecdote exploited by activists in order to stuff their pockets and maintain power at the highest levels of our government. In other words, contrary to popular belief, the righteous ringleaders of race are fighting to keep you poor and ignorant! For the sake of Dred Scott, George Washington Carver, Rosa Parks, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., I pray black America sheds the destructive politics of race, demagoguery, and embarks on a new path of self-discovery, achievement and affirmation. After all, if 50 years of blind devotion has brought them to where they are today, what do African Americans have to lose other than shedding the ideological and economic shackles of their new slave owners: the Democratic Party.
