OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS THROW BLACKS UNDER THE BUS
By A. J. Delgado

One of the sleeper issues surrounding the debate on amnesty for illegal immigrants an inconvenient one that no proponent of a widespread amnesty wishes to acknowledge is the devastating effect so-called immigration reform will have on African Americans.
Why are Democratic politicians disregarding the concerns and needs of black Americans in a push to address the concerns and needs of foreigners? Amnesty proponents speak of the need to grant others a better life but what of the need to look out for our fellow Americans? What of those black Americans whose ancestors quite literally built this nation through the sweat of their brows?
Instead, Democrats are chucking aside black voters in their rush to lock in the Latino vote (or so theyre hoping). Taken for granted as a given come election-time, blacks are now actively harmed as the Democrats vow to grow their voting base through importing more and more of what they see as future blue-voters. Its the husband who leaves his wife of 30 years: We had a good run, honey, but Ive found someone new.
Democrats have built a brand as the party willing to stand up for black Americans, but the amnesty push shows what a false promise that was. The message to black voters is: Yes, your ancestors endured unimaginable hardships and helped build this country, and we said wed help you out. But now we have a new trophy wife.
