The deluded black voter seems to believe that a 10cent increase in the minimum wage is going to change his/her life for the better.
Convinced that they can’t achieve without ‘help’ from the dems in government.
This was an odd reaction since I believe that MLK was a registered Republican.
Frankly, I don’t miss Teddy Chappaquiddick, nor his dubious “legacy”. Black Americans have allowed the Democrats to sucker them for decades and they, apparently, like it!!
When yer gittin’ screwed and ya enjoy it, there ain’t no problem. However, the smart ones have taken a long look at liberalism and realized that the Dems don’t and never have done anything for them except toss them an pccasional bone to keep’em happy in the field.
The GOP COULD try to define itself (instead of letting the Dems define us) and try to lure some of the black voters away from the Dem Party but, like a LOT of things the GOP COULD do, they won’t!!
Lincoln was a Republican.
Martin Luther King was a Republican.
Jackie Robinson was a Republican.
The KKK were Democrats.
Jim Crow was put in place by Democrats.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats.
And the outcome is that Democrats are God's gift to black folks and Republicans are racist bastards who hate black people.
How the heck did that happen??
Teddy suckered a lot of folks.
How many of them really believe he is innocent of killing Mary Jo?
In 1960 Nixon received thirty-two percent of the Black vote. If Republicans received that amount today, we’d never see a Dem president. What happened? Among other things two strong voices of the Republican/conservative side, W.F. Buckley and Barry Goldwater, were against the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Bill. Whatever one thinks of the merits or demerits of the bill (and despite the fact that more Republicans voted for the bill than Dems), it cemented in the minds of many black voters that Republicans were racists and their party was the Dem party.
I don’t believe this article. The Afro American vote became overwhelmingly Dem during the new Deal. The overwhelming vote for the Dem’s in the black community may have become even more overwhelming because of the Kennedy’s but it was overwhelming before them. Sorry but the main premise of this article is clearly wrong.
This article calls to mind Einstein’s definition of insanity.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
