One thing that has never sat well with me nor made any sense as I was growing up was regarding the relationship between the Democrat Party and the black-American Community. How can it be that the political party that is said to have freed Blacks in America from bondage and slavery, and protected it from segregationist policies, the Republican Party, to now be the Party that is hated and denounced by the black-American community today?
The residue of the ideological battle between the early 19th century black-American leaders, Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Debois, the battle between pushing blacks to become the fisherman and learn to fish and feed themselves verses having a small group of black political elites lead and dictate to the black masses, in which Debois won out, is strangling not just the black-American community but America to a certain death.
The very notion of the socialist construct of “equality” has the black American community, who has approximately $2 Trillion of post-tax dollars going through it’s community annually, actually believing that it needs government handouts and social-engineered welfare and equality programs to exists and succeed.
How many of you would be surprised to know that real black American history includes a black American woman who fought against the constitutionality of slavery in the state of Massachusetts’ Supreme Court … in 1781 … and won? How many of you would be surprised to learn that Thurgood Marshall was not the first black American nominated Justice to the U.S Supreme Court … the same year the war between the states ended? Or how many of you would be stunned to know that the first blacks elected to the U.S Congress after the was between the states were 7 Republicans … from the south?
How can it be true that the black man could have only arrived in America as an unlearned slave when his presence is depicted throughout the Americas, as well as the world, long predating the 1700’s? How can it be that Blacks in America have held prominent positions throughout American history prior to Emancipation, and most Americans know him as a slave or impoverished second class citizen?
