I’m sure that many of you will remember how it was while on the campaign trail that then candidate Donald Trump asked black Americans, who have been voting solidly Democrat for decades and getting little in return for their votes, what they had to lose by voting for him. And it was just 8% of black voters who decided to take him up on that challenge while the remainder of black voters decided to stick with the same tired, old and rather worn out horse by voting for Hitlery.
And now, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics( BLS), over the course of the last year the unemployment rate for black Americans is at the lowest it has been since the year 2000, 17 years ago. In November, the national unemployment rate for black Americans, ages 16 and over, was 7.3%. The last time it was 7.3% was in the year 2000, during the months September, October and November. So might the 8 % of blacks who chose to vote for President Trump been right?
Anyway, it was back during the Bush and Barry ‘O’ years (2001-2016) that the black unemployment rate typically fluctuated somewhere between a low of 7.7% and a high of 16.8%. And then as recently as this past September, the rate was 7.0%, a low that had not been seen since April of 2000. Prior to that, going all the way back to 1972, the black unemployment rate never fell below 7.0% and was largely in the double digits throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
All of which, I would argue, begs the question, might this be enough for more blacks to at least consider leaving the Democrat plantation to which they seem to have become so accustomed to living on? Barry ‘O’ told blacks that they should get used to this new normal of having no job and for being completely dependent on government. But it was then candidate Trump who said that he wanted ALL Americans to be able to succeed be they black, white and brown. And he’s succeeding.
Let’s face it, anyone with half a brain has to know that the Democrat Party of 2017 is nothing more than the modern day version of the plantation owners of days past. These people have figured out how to get blacks, and other minorities, to willingly enter into that which is nothing more than a new form of slavery, but slavery just the same. Blacks vote for those who systemically prevent them from achieving prosperity and promise them all manner of charity. Essentially they ‘OWN’ them.
And despite the fact that it’s easy for most us to see that the Democrats have officially ditched the blacks for illegals, the black don’t yet seem to have figured that out. Because the Democrats couldn’t get blacks to go along with gay marriage, illegals or Moslems; especially the whole gay marriage thing, they just cut them out. And yet still the blacks remained stupid enough to vote Democrat. So were they right about the average intelligence of blacks after all?
So why was Barry ‘O’, our first black president, unable to bring down the unemployment rate of blacks? Well, for one thing he was pretty much focused on demonizing and punishing the wealthy and was determined not to a give a tax cut to anyone. And either he never understood, or chose to ignore the fact, that it’s from the wealthy, that you get jobs. Add then he compounded the entire problem by growing government, which took even more money from the job creators.
I feel pretty confident in saying that one of the scariest things for the Democrat Party is a booming economy. Because that means there will be fewer people on welfare, fewer people eating from the hand of the Democrat power brokers, fewer people needing Democrats in their lives. Democrats’ measure their worth by how many people are suffering, the more who suffer, the more worthy they feel. A thriving middle-class is the biggest enemy of the Democrat Party.
Those leftists voting for more government to take care of them are quite literally trading away their independence in exchange for government dependence. Most never come to understand the concept that what the government giveth, the government can also take away whenever it wants and for whatever reason it may chose. You’re voting to be owned. You can blame the masters, but when I see a leftist voter, I see someone who is enthusiastic about becoming a slave.
There are those who can’t wait to vote for politicians who will keep the people down so that they can keep promising help every 2-4 years allowing them to build and to maintain their political power. Intellectual honesty and critical thinking go a long way, but only if you’re willing to engage your brain. Simply ask who it is that stands to benefit from a high unemployment rate and increasing dependence on the government and there’s only one answer. The Democrat Party!
It’s a FACT that liberal policies, over the last 40–50 years, have led to a progressive breakdown in the standard of living among black Americans. The single biggest factor in this is the steadily growing number of single-parent households (particularly among blacks – but not exclusive to them) accompanied by the lack of parental responsibility (typically by the father) as evidenced by the absence of engagement in the upbringing, and the lack of financial support, of children they have sired.
That is what feeds the “cycle of dependence” that has absolutely ravaged the black community – and liberal policies are responsible for 98% of the mess. The short solution here is a relatively simple one. Admittedly it’s grossly oversimplified – but undeniably true. If you don’t intend on remaining in a relationship (e.g. marriage) AND remaining actively engaged in raising a child then either abstain from sex or take responsibility for yourself and employ birth control.
If you can’t afford to raise a child to adulthood then don’t have a child. If you’re going to become a parent then for God’s sake, BE A PARENT. Don’t dump your responsibilities onto the public. The government is the worst business manager in America, but it’s even worse at raising children. President Trump’s goal is to “Make America Great Again”, and not just for the white folks. For EVERYBODY! Democrats want just the opposite, but for everyone but themselves.
But one of the sad truths here is that after decades of voting 95+% for Democrats, those in the black community have now effectively reduced themselves to being little more than political pawns and useful idiots. Their inner city illiteracy rates often exceed 50%, black unemployment is two to three times surrounding communities, and Obummer’s “open borders” policy has made that much worse. And yet we still be blacks, every election, still voting for Democrats in droves.
Add to that the fact that the Department of Justice statistics say that blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders and 45% of assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties though they made up roughly 15% of the population there. And 64% of all police deaths on the job are caused by blacks. Blacks have set records for government dependency, for fatherless families and high unemployment rates which all have their roots in the liberal policies of those who blacks vote for.
And now, with the rocketing upswing of shootings and deaths since Ferguson, Democrats have much more to answer for than just the consequences of a greedy and selfish political posture. Look toward the most dysfunctional, dependent and murderous communities in the country and you will find decades of control by corrupt and self-serving Democrat Party politicians. And it is they who serve as our best example of why we should never elect another Democrat to public office.
Obummer averaged a 1.075% GDP growth, while President Trump is already over 3%. The best thing for all of us, including those in the black community, will be continued GDP growth, jobs growth, rising wages, lower taxes, etc. That said, blacks tend to have some of the least amount of skills needed for employment in our current economy, so it only makes sense that they would be the last to reap the benefits of overall low unemployment. That’s where the focus needs to be.
