I’m Black and became a conservative because Democrats keep failing my community (and all communities).
It’s time for us (and America as a whole) to reclaim some of the power we’ve given to the Democrats over the past few decades.
The Democrats used their power successfully in the 1940s and 1950s to divide America along color lines. They did it by using public schools as a tool for social engineering. They did it by getting away with using “Jim Crow” laws in the South and using the Ku Klux Klan against people of color. They did it by using the media to influence people to support civil rights legislation.
I know firsthand what it’s like to be a minority in America and to have people tell you that you can’t do anything about your own problems. I’ve seen people reject my help because I’m black. I’ve seen a woman refuse to help me because I’m a woman. I’ve seen a teenager refuse to do my chores because I’m black. I’ve seen a business refuse to hire me because I’m black.
When the Democrats took control of the House and the Senate in the 1990s, I saw the same thing. I saw public schools used to keep black children segregated. I saw the Ku Klux Klan used to keep people of color from voting. I saw the media used to promote the causes of civil rights. And I saw the Democrats used as a tool for social engineering.
So what happened to our progressivism? What happened to our social justice? What happened to our equality and justice?
The problem is not just that we have to do it as individuals. It is also that our nation’s power and influence have been used to promote that separatism at the expense of the majority.
I think this may be the final episode of a three-part series about how our country has been divided along the color line.
I don’t believe that any of us have any idea how far we’ve come since the beginning of America’s experiment in human rights.
There is no such thing as “racial progress.” There is only progress when all human beings are treated with dignity and respect. Progressivism is the only true American ideal. There is no such thing as a “white race” or a “black race
