Posted on 09/14/2013 3:26:03 PM PDT by DBCJR
Zo keeps getting asked what Republicans can do for the Black community. He says they can do a lot, but only if the community stops being in lockstep with the Democratic Party. Stop being brainwashed long enough to hear the answer. See video.
I think there are some situations where conservatives could do ourselves, blacks, and America some real favors.
I personally would love to see some privately funded scholarships to take the best and brightest inner city kids out of inner city schools and pay for good conservative private schooling. It doesn’t even need to be race based to impact blacks the most. If you target poor inner city kids, you’ll naturally impact blacks the most for creating more Ben Carsons.
Nothing...until they grow up and start referring to themselves as the “American Community”. If they want to be a nation in a nation, then let’s give them a reservation! After all, its worked so well for the Native Americans. </sarc>
What can they do for themselves? Always wanting someone else to come in and clean up the mess they created.
The black community needs a strong private economy in order to provide jobs. The Dems have been bribing the black community with welfare and government jobs, but unless the private economy is strong enough to sustain government overhead, it all comes crashing down.
All blacks nations of Africa are run by savages that have created turd-world nations, what makes us think they can do better here?
Set them free. Just like the last time.
Hero worship of Jesse Helms by the man who may well be the candidate in 2016 probably won’t help. For all his good points, Helms’ support of segregation, his opposition to any and all Civil Rights legislation, his filibuster of the King holiday, and his support for apartheid South Africa isn’t going to play well with black people, conservative or otherwise.
Let the black community clean up its own messes. Don't fund it, don't patronize it, and don't support the scammers. Let them do for themselves.
No outside intervention will ever be appreciated. The problems must be solved from within.
Anyway, if sitting in Austin in a state office is all you do, it's not enough. The voters are in the counties and that is where the emphasis must be to get out your message.
“Everybody has asked the question. . .”What shall we do with the Negro?” I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by nature’s plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!” Frederick Douglass
Here’s an idea, ignore them.
You know what I think.? I think we should do nothing for blacks. That's right nothing.
Either all men were created equal or not. In the USA, there is no slavery, no laws preventing anyone of any race from success.
It is well past the time for blacks to get off their high horse and quit expecting special treatment and favor.
I'm white and I could not afford college, sometimes I couldn't afford food. You know what? I got up off my lazy butt and found a job anyway.
I've waited tables and washed cars. All I ever wanted was to be a secretary and work in an office, can you believe that? I set a goal for MYSELF - and worked for it. I knew I'd never be a CEO, but I was gonna be the best at what I could be.
I'm still not college educated, but I'm a proven asset at any company I have worked for. Right now, I'm “just a secretary” who makes a larger wage than most college grads.
Blacks don't need favors...they need work ethics.
Then do nothing. I’m going to do all I can to lure blacks and the growing number of whites off the plantation. Whipping them off the plantation isn’t going to work.
Nothing, we are broke. The money is spent.
What an exceptional mind was Frederick Douglass.
He was right up there on the top rank, in my opinion. In all history.
Every US Citizen has the opportunity to make something of themselves. Many choose not to, and there’s not much that can be done about that.
Do you equate blacks working for their own success as whipping them?
If so, you are part of the problem.
That’s OK I choose to try to lead them off the plantation rather than tell them to stay right the hell where they are.
Filibuster of the King holiday? Good for him. That Viet Cong-loving race baiter should never have had a national holiday to begin with.
Hardly. You’re the one who sees any attempt to reach out to your fellow Americans as giving them something. Hell most of them are in better financial shape than I am because I don’t take the government money.
I choose to be an example.
it’s a two way street Black Community, what can you do for the nation?
I was reading some comments on an article somewhere on line about the “destroyed black community” because of the rampant unemployment, etc. No, they are not destroyed, they have just devolved into a different set of values and behaviors based on the incentives in front of them. When you can still eat and have a roof over your head and a cell phone and a plasma screen and 100% leisure time for simply breathing, anyone who aspires to knowledge or a job or a stable nuclear family is simply a sucker. Leisure is the highest value for the permanent underclass, and until there is literal pain and starvation, there will be no change. The welfare state has eliminated the moral hazard of ignorance, stupidity, and sloth. And modern Christendom is actively contributing to this by their incessant soft-peddling the consequences of sinful behavior. It should and will lead to destruction, and any effort to mitigate that is simply both insane and heretical. stopping the disruption of small failures and the natural feedback loop will simply forestall them into giant pyroxisms.
Ted Cruz is right to speak highly of this this champion of real American principles.
"Doctor" "Reverend" Marxist Luther King was a commie who hated Ronald Reagan.
Why should it be up to the Republicans to start GIVING to the black community. Why doesn’t the black community start doing something FOR THEMSELVES? Or or they just not smart enough to do anything without support? This is getting old. If people cannot help themselves, then THEY have the problem, why must someone else always have to solve THEIR problems? The more “help” given, the more dependent they become.
What did you just say?
Do you think it is compassion to work hard and do without so that those who do not work hard do not have to do without?
It is better to teach a man to fish, than give him the fish.
As far as your view of me. This is how it is. If someone is working hard, attempting to get by and can’t, sure, I’ll give you a hand up.
But if you are on the government dole because you think I owe you something. Kiss the big one.
And another thing. Charity is a personal matter. It is not up to the government to TELL me STEAL from me, to give to a bunch of dang bums just because their long ago third generation, maybe, mammy....was a slave!
What I want for the black community is remarkably like what I want for all Americans. And no one should treat one American differently than another based on anything as trivial as the color of their skin.
And you think teaching him to fish is giving him something.
I’m not going to waste my time with your kind. You’ve got issues that you aren’t likely to face.
“Thats OK I choose to try to lead them off the plantation rather than tell them to stay right the hell where they are.”
I don’t think the African American community matters to either party very much.
Both parties seem to be for the status quo.
I applaud your example but I think it will mostly not have an impact here. A lot of people have already decided that all AA want is a free ride,good luck changing that attitude.
“If they want to be a nation in a nation, then lets give them a reservation! After all, its worked so well for the Native Americans. </sarc>”
Never been to an Indian Casino huh?
>>Never been to an Indian Casino huh?
Nope. Never been to one. I passed math in high school.
“Nope. Never been to one. I passed math in high school.”
Native Americans are doing pretty well. I guess a lot of them passed HS math as well. And buisness and marketing class. Lol

That’s a good thing. Perhaps blacks could learn from them.
I was called to it and have been rewarded for it.
Only God can change a man’s heart. There’s a revival coming up in this nation and in the black community that will turn many hearts around. It’s not seen yet, just as the wind is not seen but its effect is.......
Like I said, you are part of the problem. It is those like you who make workers like me pay for the welfare state.
If I don't give a krap about the poor, who are YOU to take my money anyway?
You are so compassionate. Take double out of your pocket to make up for "my kind”.
The ones who want to be Americans are already busy doing so, and the balance never will.
That's what I say to cut 'em off when they want to talk to me about "their community." I just tell them I don't have the authority to mess with their community, and they don't have the authority to mess with mine. When they're willing to agree it's all one community, I'll talk. Until then, piss off about it. Deal with it.
lets forget an answer and look at the question which is a huge problem in itself.
America was lost when politicians started playing the role of santa claus to worthless people of all races who had an entitlement attitude and didnt mind having a government nanny.
That was unnecessary.
Did you watch the video?
Helms didn’t enter the Senate until 1973. He had no vote on the 1960s CRA agenda. What he did was oppose was initiatives such as Affirmative Action, since in practice, it is racist and unfair. Justice and redress of hundreds of years of oppression of Blacks is not accomplished by turning around and penalizing Whites (or Asians, for whom most weren’t even here during the aforementioned period or ever benefitted from “White privilege”).
Also, why should MLK alone be worthy of a holiday given his personal track record ? Why aren’t there holidays for more worthy Black Americans who were accomplished and possessed a higher moral caliber ? (Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver, Medgar Evers, et al).
When Cruz praises Helms, he praises a man whose guide was the Constitution and not the leftist media and political correctness, the latter two of which keep the current GOP paralyzed by statism and fear.
Went into an Indian casino in South Dakota. Thought I had walked into a zombie movie. There were a few dozen people sitting in front of slot machines, staring blankly, mindlessly putting coins into the machine and pulling the lever. I saw no joy, no excitement, no sense of having a good time. Very sad.
Tell them what they need to hear and that is that they can take care of themselves, have amazing potential and that by looking first to someone else to take care of them makes them slaves all over again.
