Will Black Americans Ditch the Democratic Party?

I’d never heard of him. But a couple of days ago, I was listening to Candace Owens in a Prager U video where she was interviewing a black man. I had no idea who is was, but it really grabbed my attention for its brutal truth.

He’s a rapper by the professional name of “Kingface.” He’s also an ex-con. And he was discussing “Black America” with Candace. Here’s what was said (language alert!):

Now, as I’ve said before, just four months ago, our country enjoyed record low unemployment across the board, and a “happy” index that any pollster would brag about, and it looked like President Trump was a shoo-in for re-election. Then BOOM! We’re hit with a double-whammy: the China virus—intentionally unleashed on the world in my oh-so-humble opinion—and the manufactured “crisis” that is the AMERICA IS RACIST nonsense, the resurgence of Black Lives Matter, the attempted erasure of our nation’s history in the form of statue and monument destruction, and the purging of anything remotely offensive to those who wish to rule over us.

Except…our country is not racist. And nothing proves that more than the continued manufacturing of “racist hate crimes” that almost always turn out to be hoaxes. Not to mention we elected, then re-elected (to my utter dismay based not on his race, but on his abysmal record and work ethic), a biracial man to the highest office in the land.

So what is all this “systemic racism” rubbish really about?

Well, it’s obvious: the black vote.

Which brings me back to Kingface, who made this observation in yet another interview, this time with Fox Nation’s Isaiah Washington:

…the former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star caught up with Instagram personality and community activist Larry Henry, known to his followers as KingFace, to discuss his tumultuous past and how it led to his support of President Trump.”

“‘I mean, he comes from the same surroundings as me,’ Henry said of Trump. ‘I think he’s like the people. I think he is the people … I think he understands the people.'”

“‘He comes from Queens, New York. He made mistakes, like he’s cheated … you know, he lived a certain lifestyle and he was able to become president,’ Henry said.”

“‘I did the same thing. I’ve cheated. I’ve did things. I’ve done bad things. So … when you look at a country where everybody wants to be politically correct … the fact that he’s going through regular human being situations and able to overcome it and be the president of the United States, I think that’s admirable.'”

And then he made this comparison:

‘I felt like Obama made Black people feel like they could become president,” he said. “When Donald Trump became president, it made the whole world feel like they could become president.'”

Bingo. Trump, even though he’s immensely wealthy in a way most of can only ever imagine, is a man of the people. He gets us; he speaks our language in a way few elected officials ever have; and he’s made the mistakes many of us have also made, lending to the notion that yes, any one of us could someday be as successful as he, and maybe even find ourselves sitting behind the Resolute Desk. It’s the American Dream.

But it’s more than that: Trump has done more for the entire country—including, and especially, our communities of people of color—than just about any president in recent memory, and light-years more than Barack Obama, who said all the right things to get himself elected, then promptly ignored where he came from, offering no real inspiration to those that would come after. For example:

The black unemployment rate under Biden and the Obama administration averaged a horrific 12.8 percent. The number of black Americans in poverty barely fell during the Obama administration, going down by just 145,000 over eight years.”

“By comparison, more than double that number – 350,000 black Americans – were lifted out of poverty during just the first two years of the Trump administration.”

Exactly. And the left knows it. And what they REALLY don’t want to discuss—like at the threat of bodily harm don’t want to discuss—is the true “systemic racism.”

But we should, and we must, discuss it if we truly want to “fundamentally transform America,” and I don’t mean into a communist hell hole.

A few thoughts:

  • * Lack of school choice: the Los Angeles school district is a prime example. It’s 35,000-union-member stronghold has elected to hold its students hostage this fall—by way of keeping campuses closed—until 1) police are de-funded and 2) charter schools are eradicated. Which, of course, is a further death knell to peoples of color: more violence at the hands of criminals from whom they cannot protect themselves (thanks to the gun control loons who lord over them). And having their children stuck in failing public schools, with no other options, where the lives of adults are the primary focus and not the futures of the children whose education’s they are tasked with providing. Lack of school choice is, in my opinion, the civil rights issue of our time.
  • * And then there’s Planned Parenthood, that preys on people of color, where they plant themselves smack dab in the middle of communities of color, where they profit off the deaths of unborn black babies. And if Planned Parenthood doesn’t get them first, street gangs, drugs, and any number of other roadblocks lurk.

  • * And here’s another truth bomb: lack of fathers in the home, another consequence of failed liberal policies, where black children are lacking positive role models of which to aspire.

I could go on, but you get where I’m going. And I’ve heard but a tiny handful of liberal politicians dare discuss these issues, for fear of, you guessed it, being deemed a RACIST!!! Which just serves to keep the cycle repeating.

Yes, instead of having an honest dialogue on true systemic racism, communities of color get brain-trusts like this and this instead, because they’ve rigged their election processes to assure a Democrat always wins:

Yeah, she’d be the joker. But wait, isn’t Batman the very white “racist vigilante” the left detests? THIS is what passes for “leadership” in cities like Chicago, where their only answer to “systemic racism” is de-funding the police, the only defense to which most law-abiding citizens there can turn.

No, the left—which has dominated most inner cities for decades as they oversee the downward drift of so many of their constituents into poverty and government handout addiction—would rather keep people of color right where they are: on the liberal plantation, voting for the same, failed garbage election cycle after election cycle. For the truth is this: without the black vote, the Democratic Party would implode into nothingness and it knows this, thus it’s need for an entire bloc of (illegal) immigrant votes.

So the question is this: Will a significant portion of the black community ditch the Democratic Party?

If any of the recent polling is accurate—and you can bet that if it is, liberal pollsters will poo-poo it and ready their cattle prods—a large percentage of them just might be, including the newly red-pilled Democrat and civil rights attorney, Leo Terrell 2.0:

Here’s hoping President Trump receives even more support from our communities of color this fall—not because he’s pandering for it like the senile old “you ain’t black” dude, but because he’s earned it, having worked to effectively address their concerns like few in history have. The alternative—a puppet president of the radical left—will see communities of all stripes quickly decimated, with our communities of color hardest hit.

And no “census cowboy” can save us from that.

    They will never abandon the Democratic Party no matter what, even though the Democratic policies have made their lives worse and worse. People love to be pandered to and Blacks sadly have not shown much political sophistication (neither have American Jews) by failing to realize that when a political party can automatically garner 95% of your vote, you have no leverage.

    Old golf pro on TV: Keep doing what you’ve been doing and keep getting what you’ve been getting… At least 50% of the electorate just can’t figure it out.

  • Seamus O'Callahan says:

    Blacks have been voting as a block for Democrats for 50 years. How has that been working out for them? The Irish voted for Democrats for decades and then realized they were being taken for granted by the Dems. We started playing the two parties off each other to get ahead. You don’t get what you deserve in life, you get what you negotiate…. The Democrats are expending their energies on winning the votes of other groups – Hispanics, LGBT, etc. not blacks. They take you for granted.
