We've all heard the old saying "why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free". When you are able to get the milk over and over without fail, you then become accustomed to receiving that milk as a given. You tend to take it for granted that you will always get it. That is how the Democratic Party views blacks and other special interest groups. Once upon a time about thirty years ago or so, Democrats would promise blacks they would do things in order to win their votes. Of course the party never delivered, but they still got the majority of black voters to vote for the Democratic party. Now, the Democratic Party doesn't even promise blacks anything anymore. They just expect them to vote for them by simply panting the GOP as some racist extremist party that will return blacks to picking crop
s and will bring back Jim Crow
. All I can say about that is that gullible and naive goes hand and hand. Thank god I am a critical thinker and can see through BS .One would think that blacks would be somewhat angry at the high black unemployment rate
and especially the very high black teen unemployment rate. If the person in the white house was a white republican, then the so called black leaders would be raising high hell, but since the person is a black Democrat, the issue hasn't even been raised not even during the campaigns. Well now that the election is over, some of the black leaders are claiming to Obama that they are owed
. Is the black community owed help from Obama? Not really, most blacks are the political property of the Democratic Party anyways. Recently the Urban League President Marc Morial wrote a letter to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and for some odd reason John Boehner. The letter urged them to put "a special focus on those
communities where unemployment is and remains stubbornly and
." What Mr. Morial wrote in his letter sounds good in theory, but here's the problem with his request. Obama won the election. That means that he's a lame duck. There is no consequences if he does nothing to help address "those communities where unemployment is stubbornly and persistently high". Instead of Mr. Morial writing the letter after the election, it would have had more importance if he did so during Obama's first term and before the election not after. As for why he wrote John Boehner, I still can't figure that one out. To be perfectly honest, there is no political fruit to be gained by John Boehner by addressing the issue. The GOP is poison in the minds of blacks thanks to the Democratic smear machine and their allies in the black communities. I wonder why this wasn't an issue during National Association for the Advancement of Colored Progressive's 103rd annual meeting back in June? I do remember the audience booing Romney for saying he would repeal Obamacare. Obama was a no show. Joe Biden took his place and the issue of the high black unemployment rate didn't even come up. In the grand scheme of things, it didn't matter. Obama received 93% of the vote from blacks.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said Obama should raise
taxes on the rich by implying “we need Republicans to think hard and to pull
back from the cliff, 98 percent of our families, who make up the bulk of
this nation, from seeing our taxes being raised.” Interesting that Mr Jealous would say something so incredibly stupid like which he said. For starters, fifty percent of Americans do not even pay income taxes.. Second, why would Republicans ever listen to the likes of Benjamin Jealous? Are they going to be suddenly liked by blacks if the GOP abandons it's platform of being against higher taxes? You all know the answer to that. When it comes to fake black leaders, I can't leave out the most well known fake reverend and all around race hustling poverty pimp Al Sharpton. Al said after meeting with Obama a few days ago "“the president heard us loud and clear” about raising taxes on those
making over $250,000 during the fiscal cliff negotiations and not
cutting spending on programs that impact the middle and working class"
. Democrats have been foaming at the mouth over the comments by Mitt Romney after the election when he spoke to donors, when he said "he just couldn't compete with Santa Clause
" meaning Obama. That comment harps back to his 47% remark. Romney was 100% spot on correct and accurate in what he said on both occasions. Al Sharpton actually spilled the beans. Sharpton just like Jealous wants taxes increased on those ultra rich two hundred fifty thousand dollaraires so that there would be no "cutting spending on PROGRAMS that impact the middle and working class".
This is about fleecing the tax payers in order to reward the tax users. What Al doesn't get is that the middle class has been eroding for the last four year
s even with funding of his beloved social programs in place. The country is technically broke and the only thing that black progressives just like their white counter parts care about is keeping the printing presses running in order to keep the gravy train running just a little bit longer until they are out of power, then the train can officially derail. I would ask when will most blacks finally wake up and realize what is going on, but I am not going to do that. It's easy to lead people based on emotion, but you can't do it with facts. They have to come to that conclusion on their own, and it's not happening anytime soon with blacks.
