Skip to comments.Black America's 'Stockholm Syndrome'
Posted on 06/14/2018 8:19:17 AM PDT by Hojczyk
When Kanye West recently suggested that African-Americans didnt need to be Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters quickly tried to put him in his place. Waters told Kanye, in effect, that he needs permission -- from his betters, presumably -- to say what he believes. In other words, dont talk out of turn; follow the thinking of the group. She sounded like a plantation manager of old, insisting that everyone else follow the rules she and other black Democratic leaders set down for their people.
All Americans today are reaping the benefits of the Trump administrations economic policies. Employment is at an all-time high; black and Hispanic unemployment is at record lows. Decembers tax cuts doubled the tax credits for school-age children and raised take-home pay for nearly all American taxpayers. Incomes have risen in real terms for the first time in 18 years, tax refunds next year that will be substantially larger, 2 million-plus poor Americans are no longer on food stamps.
This has been achieved by the GOP, which was founded in 1854 as the anti-slavery party. Whats more, most states with Republican governors are outperforming so-called blue states those run by Democrats. No matter what the color of your skin happens to be, economic opportunity comes from freedom, not higher taxes and big government.
Meanwhile, the economic fallout from group thinking can be seen in every major city in America, where the plantation supervisors are still channeling the failed oppressors spirit upon the minds of the weak. Its long past time that black America shake off the plantation managers yoke and shake off its Stockholm syndrome. Groupthink has gotten this group nowhere.

Aubrey, get your shine box.
Plantation owner? No, she sounds like the communist she is.
This is tyranny of the highest form. A “public servant” telling a private citizen to shut up.
“Hispanic unemployment is at record lows”
That’s gotta be killin’ the lib/dems right there.
Remember this? The lady in the background at the end is cracking up. ;)
Blacks should have three priorities:
It is the low hanging fruit. It is the answer to economic mobility. The Dems actively prevent them from achieving that goal by trapping them in failing schools in obedience to the teachers union.
Democrats have hurt Blacks a real lot. They destroy everything they touch.
Nothing has really changed in 400 years. We are still a nation of free people, masters, overseers and slaves. Maxine
Waters is a representative of the overseer class. Kanye
West has declared himself a free man.
Wrong. Those (public) schools aren't failing, they are succeeding—beyond their wildest dreams—in indoctrinating all of our children (Black, White, Hispanic, etc.) into the corrosive tenets of Authoritarian Collectivism (Marxism or "more moderate" Fabian Socialism, in all of their destructive forms) with its associated encouragement of dependence on the State, obsession with Identity Politics, and imposition of the most strident, dogmatic Political Correctness this nation has ever seen.
Ending the Left's highly succesful stranglehold on public education would be one of the greatest achievements of the Trump Presidency—and it will be one of the most difficult things he could ever do...
I'd like to see the sources of these quotes by Malcom X...
Sadly, many smart blacks know that a great portion of “their people” can be taken advantage of, and they are not above doing just that. After a point, green is the only color that matters. Anyone disrupting the status quo must be put back in his place. Democrat politics borders on evil, with many taking the full plunge.
Right On Brother:-)
Dont be ridiculous.
As a group, blacks have scored hundreds of billions they wouldnt have off what you call the plantation.
Their adherence to Democrats is entirely rational. They would be stupid to change.
Its not the schools.
Its not the teachers.
Its the students.
I believe they’re waking up. The major race hustlers are ineffective. Jesse Jackson is a mumbling stumbling stuttering dotard and the Al Sharpton has made his millions and is content with just chiming now and again.
I think there are enough blacks who are now considered in the middle class that they see the upside to conservatives but more important, the downside of progressivism. PDJT is looking at 5% shift in black voters for him and that destroys the Democratic party.
I talked to a black janitor at a VA hospital recently. We were talking about VA big shots who should be fired. Paraphrasing he said “The VA doesn’t need more staff. They need staff that cares about vets. And if your not doing your job Trump will fire your butt. I admit I didn’t vote for Trump but he’s doing everything he said he would do and it’s all good. I’ll vote for him next time. Besides, he just gave a raise.”
This was the hardest working man I’ve seen in a long time. Trump’s actions have gotten another one off the plantation.
Affirmative action keeps them down. It explicitly says they are inferior. Stop AA at once and expect achievement. Same standard for everyone.
