As a black American, Hillary Clinton pandering for black votes makes me angry. But what makes me even more furious is black Democrats who continue to eat this act up. A recent video of Hillary singing “We Shall Overcome” hand in hand with others, has made me reach my tipping point. Martin Luther King Jr. is rolling in his grave.
Does Clinton think she can sing “Negro Spirituals” and do the newest dance and win black voters? Sadly that may be the case. Black liberals have shown that with a little pandering and handouts you can get their full support. It makes me more sad than angry that blacks don’t realize they have been conditioned to vote Democrat no matter what.
Some blacks are supporting Hillary because she supports Black Lives Matter. It’s funny how Democrats blame Republicans for police shootings, yet not one of the cities involved in recent police shooting and rioting are run by Republican officials. Chicago, Baltimore, New York, Ferguson, Milwaukee, and St. Louis are all run by Democrats.
Hillary Clinton and her antics will not win over this black voter. At one time, I was too was a Democrat, and still didn’t like her. My disdain for Clinton’s tactics inspired me to start the #WhyINotVotingForHillary hashtag the day she announced her intention to run for president. It caught fire on social media.
I sit back and ask, why have blacks belittled themselves to being wooed by white Democrats who pretend to act black? Why do they not feel mocked? The same black Democrats that seemed to get so easily offended by every little thing think it’s perfectly fine for Clinton to do this? The same woman whose two top donors own private prisons? The same woman whose husband as president, caused mass incarceration in the black community with a single pen stroke?
Unfortunately, the “plantation” mentality is still alive and well within the black political community. It seems they will do anything Democrats tell them to do despite not seeing any tangible results in their communities from consistent voting Democrats into office. The “War on Poverty” has destroyed the black family unit essentially replacing black fathers with Uncle Sam.
This is an open wake-up call to black voters everywhere. We’ve tried Democrat policies for 50 years, it has weakened our influence and made us dependent. The oft quoted definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Until blacks vote for different leadership they may fully deserve this mess liberalism has created.
