The “Bern” Going After Hillary’s Supposed Base Strength
Under Republicans, Black to White Unemployment Ration Less than 2:1
Democrats under Obama/Clinton Drastically Worsened Black Unemployment Rates
Black Youth Unemployment in July of 2015 = 20.7%
White Youth Unemployment in July 2015 = 10.3%
Democrats/Socialists Pander to Blacks But Do Nothing to Help
Hillary Clinton has to have the Black vote or the Democrats will have their first Socialist (at least admitted) as their presidential candidate. With big wins in Iowa and New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders is seeking the Black Community Organizers help in getting the Black vote! Bernie had breakfast with Black activist Al Sharpton who dined on BERNIE FREE STUFF for breakfast!
You would think that the Bern would be running out of free stuff but I think his bag has a few more “tricks” in it. Since he is a socialist, and does not believe that the private sector has no function other than to pay taxes, his solution will have to be more government programs. Maybe he will channel LBJ and call it the “Really Great Society”. He may also invoke the “R” word and resurrect REPARATIONS.
Big Al Sharpton said after the meeting that “he does not want the concerns of African-Americans moving out of the White House after the end of President Barack Obama’s presidency.” What planet is Al on? Black Unemployment in all categories has worsened and is not substantially improving. Obama/Clinton open borders immigration policies have brought in millions of immigrants who have taken many of the jobs from Blacks, particularly the Black Youth. Further, Black on Black Crime has skyrocketed, Black home ownership has tanked, and Black education has continued to degrade to create the lowest Black literacy rate in modern times.
Bernie is pushing socialist plans to INVEST HEAVILY in the Black Community and to create decent paying jobs. Unfortunately the way he gets to “decent paying jobs” is by making the minimum wage $15.00/hour which will actually reduce jobs!! Not to be outdone, Hillary said, “We also have to break through the barriers of bigotry, African-American parents shouldn’t have to worry that their children will be harassed, humiliated, even shot because of the color of their skin.” How about being shot by others of the same color who are caught up in Drug and Gang wars in such cities as Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore.
Unfortunately activists such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson will help to convince the Black community to keep voting Democrat which is voting for their continued enslavement by Democrat failed socio-economic policies.
My hope springs eternal that someone in the Black community will rise up and level with their community and finally support Republican policies that will lift them out of poverty.
