If you live in a red state – Florida, Texas, and Mississippi are on my mind – where your governor has decided that lockdowns (even partial) and mask mandates are pretty much wastes of times, count yourself lucky. If you live in a blue state – oh, say, New York, Pennsylvania, California, New Jersey – with a petty tyrant for governor, an inert or rubber-stamp legislature, and courts controlled by make-the-law-up Democrat judges, you’re still being forced to knuckle under, to one degree or another.
BLM and ANTIFA backed mobs are doing their level best to tear down America. It’s an ongoing project under the guise of moral outrage. Portraits and statues of long dead Confederates are the offenders. And, increasingly, non-rebel historic figures, like U.S. Grant and George Washington, among other founders. Images of the Europeanized Jesus and stained glass windows are up next. The white-skinned portrayal of Jesus makes him an eternal racist and slaveholder, intimates BLM savants.
“What I’m saying to Black America, we must stop victimizaton [sp]. We must stop complaining about what white folks have done to us in the past. We must go into ourselves, as Dr. King said, and find indelible ink — our own emancipation proclamation.”
Black generational poverty is a fact. It’s persisted, if not increased, since Lyndon Johnson’s “Not-So-Great-Society” was launched in the mid-1960s. That seems contrary to common sense, but it isn’t. You must look deeper – to the facts and politics – to appreciate why Democrats’ policies and governance have failed poor blacks, spectacularly.
In his 1965 “The Negro Family: The Case for National Action,” Moynihan observed that because more blacks were being born into unmarried homes, more blacks were becoming dependent on welfare to survive.
There’s an ugly truth that Democrats do everything they can to hide. Black generational poverty is a problem Democrats have perpetuated. It’s Democrats’ “progressive” policies and governance that have failed poor and disadvantaged blacks for decades. Most assuredly failed them since the 1960s.
