The saying goes something like this: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” In the case of the black community and the liberal progressive socialists of the Democrat Party, it could be: “Lie to me for the past 50 years; shame on me.”Since Lyndon Johnson launched his Great Society welfare nanny state programs, we’ve seen the black community become anything but a great society. The evidence is irrefutable when one just takes a ride through an inner city community anywhere in the United States. There are places in Detroit worse than combat zones. The murder rates of blacks in Chicago and Baltimore are higher than the combat death tolls in Afghanistan. And I guess the folks in the black community are just supposed to listen to “Mr. Charlie” and keep voting for those Democrats — after all, Missy Hillary told y’all ‘dem mean ol’ Republicans gonna take away yo votin’ rights. And Mr. Joe says, “they gonna put y’all back in chains.” (Sadly, Vice President Joe Biden got his history of political parties mixed up; it was the Democrats who put blacks in chains. The GOP, the Republican Party, broke those chains by way of the Emancipation Proclamation, along with the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.)
But could “shame on me” now be starting to take root within the black community? As reported by the Washington Post, disillusioned black voters are beginning to ask, “is voting even worth it?” The Post continues:During those two electric Novembers, the chance to elect a black president, and then keep him in office, seized Regenia Motley’s neighborhood.
Nightclubs were registering voters. Churches held fish fries after loading buses that ferried parishioners to the polls. A truck hoisted a big sign that said “Obama.” And residents waited in long lines at precincts across the community.
But as Motley and some friends sought shade recently under a mulberry tree and looked across the landscape of empty lots and abandoned houses that has persisted here, they wondered whether they would ever bother voting again.“What was the point?” asked Motley, 23, a grocery store clerk. “We made history, but I don’t see change.”
On Jacksonville’s north side and in other struggling urban neighborhoods across the country, where Barack Obama mobilized large numbers of new African American voters who were inspired partly by the emotional draw of his biography, high hopes have turned to frustration: Even a black president was unable to heal places still gripped by violence, drugs and joblessness.
Horribly so, instead of healing, the black community has been herded onto the 21st century economic plantation and kept there by a new breed of overseers — the Al Sharptons — and its plight just continues to degrade. Democrats take the black community so for granted, they don’t even work for the vote. It’s just a matter of dismissive patronizing where these white liberal progressive socialists show up and have accolades and honors heaped upon them. The most recent evidence of this was Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee parading Hillary Clinton onto the stage at Texas Southern University where she was given a gold medal — for what? When was the last time the Clintons made a significant contribution to any historically black college and university (HBCU) — most of which were, by the way, started by white Republican philanthropists?The black community needs to be concerned because it’s about to be relegated into permanent disregard. As soon as the liberal progressives can establish voting rights for the millions of illegal immigrants in America, blacks will NEVER see the liberal progressives return to their neighborhoods. Look at how these white liberal professional “community organizers” are whipping up blacks into a frenzy with the false narrative of “Black Lives Matter.” Really, how about the lives in all the inner cities where black-on-black crime is rampant? What about the 13 million black babies who’ll never know Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream — do their lives matter? Nah, what matters to the liberal progressives is just the politicized agenda, such as we’re seeing in McKinney, Texas — and astonishingly watched in Baltimore.
So now that this despondency has set in with ardent churchgoing blacks who’d placed their “hope” in a man, not with the Lord God Almighty, what will they do now?
