For several decades now, the Democrat Party has acted like they own the minority vote, most especially that of the Black community.
To a large part, that’s been true, as most minorities, especially the poor within those minorities, vote for the Democrats, hoping to get all the handouts that they are always promising. In this, the Democrats are using a time-tested tactic of using your and my tax dollars to buy the votes of the poor.
Of course, they don’t just buy their votes with free handouts; if that’s all they did, it would be bad enough. But rather, they foster envy and jealousy as well. That gives them the ability to keep the poor angry at the rich, in a classic class-warfare move.
Doing so is necessary, so that the poor don’t have a chance to get mad at the Democrats.
You see, people whose lives are miserable and whose needs aren’t being met will always be mad at someone. That basically means everyone who is either living from paycheck to paycheck or lower economically. So all the poor, lower class and lower middle class can qualify as being part of that.
Okay, so these people are upset, so what? It’s human nature to try and blame others for our problems, and we usually look for the highest and biggest target to blame. In other words, the most natural target for that anger is our political leadership.
When Republicans are in office, the Democrats feed into that natural desire to blame the highest target around; getting their constituents to be mad at the political leadership. But when Democrats are in office, they can’t allow that. They have to turn that anger elsewhere. Otherwise, they might be seen for the charlatans that they are.
So they pick other targets and get people focused on them. It really doesn’t matter who those targets are, just as long as they are big enough and high enough to garner the necessary attention.
They’ll use whatever Republican politicians are available, they’ll talk about the police, they’ll get people mad at corporations and businesses, they’ll even go after priests and nuns; anything to keep the spotlight of the public’s anger turned away from them.
Just look at the difference in how the media and the Democrats have handled Obama’s presidency, compared to Bush’s presidency. Granted, Obama is a Democrat, so he’s one of theirs; but that’s the point. The entire Democrat machine, including the mainstream media, is working overtime to make Obama look good and conservatives look bad.
Just look at the targets they’ve chosen, to direct the anger of the poor masses at:
- Wall Street (Occupy Wall Street)
- Bankers in general
- Corporations in general
- Christians – both for opposing gay rights and Islam
- Police (Black Lives Matter)
- Conservatives in general
- And of course, any Republican politicians they can find
This isn’t a new tactic, but something they’ve used for years. Actually, they didn’t even invent it. Hitler used the same thing in Germany, turning the anger of the German people over their loss of World War I, the poverty they were living under and the high inflation against the Jews, blaming them for the country’s financial woes.
Forget that they spent all their money losing a war; it had to be the fault of the Jews. Otherwise, people might turn their anger against the government, which might ultimately mean turning it on Hitler himself.
Why do Democrats need to turn the anger of the minorities somewhere? Just look at their situation. Minorities in this country are quite literally getting the leftovers.
Black unemployment rates are much higher than White unemployment rates, especially amongst young men. Black youth from the ghettos are dropping out of school in droves, with few of them even gaining a high-school diploma, let alone a college degree.
Black families are falling apart, with the highest divorce rate and the highest percentage of single-parent homes amongst any group in the United States.
Blacks Are Waking Up
There is so much going wrong in the Black community, that it’s no wonder that they are dissatisfied with the condition. Somebody has to be at blame for that, and they are being very carefully instructed as to who to blame for it.
Again, we’ve got to ask the question, why do the Blacks need to have their attention directed at specific targets? Simply because the Blacks who are in the worst shape are in cities and states which have been run by Democrat politicians for decades.
If their anger isn’t properly directed away from their own political leadership, it would be all too easy for them to point the finger at Democrats, and realize what is happening to them.
But Blacks are starting to realize what is happening to them. Specifically, they’re starting to understand that the Democrat party has been using them, and has been doing so for years. Not all Blacks are coming to this realization, but enough are that it’s starting to make a difference; especially since some of those who are realizing it are key leaders in the Black community.
Quanell X, a leader of the New Black Panthers in Houston, Texas recently turned on the Democrat party, saying that Black Americans should “truly examine Donald Trump’s outreach to the black community.” He elaborated on that, adding that it’s time to “reexamine the relationship that black voters have with the Democrat Party.”

That’s not all he said, making his stand much clearer by declaring “it’s a fact that for 54 years, we have been voting for the Democrat Party like no other race in America. And they have not given us the same loyalty and love that we have given them… we are being pimped like prostitutes, and they’re the big pimps pimping us politically, promising us everything and we get nothing in return.”
Those are pretty strong words, making a pretty strong accusation against the Democrat Party. But I’ve got to say, he’s absolutely right. The Democrats are and have always been the party of racism.
They claim that the racism of the past is gone, with the racial elements of the Democrat Party who were members of the KKK and created the Jim Crow laws have moved over to the Republican Party.
But it’s all a lie. Those words and others like them are nothing more than a ruse to hide the racism inherent in the Democrat Party.
Why do they have to hide it? Because they don’t want to get rid of it. The Democrats don’t want to do anything for Blacks, other than keep them dependent on government handouts. That serves their purposes, because it gives them a huge voting block they can count on, without costing them a thing.
I have long been suspicious of the Democrats, citing how every political party in the last century who has claimed interest in helping the poor, has done so for the purpose of using the poor to gain power. But in reality, those parties want the poor to remain poor, so that they can continue using them.
I don’t care if you’re talking about Stalinist Russia, Castro’s Cuba or Maoist China; they all used the same tactics.
So why are the poor so important to these politicians? There are two basic reasons. First of all, there are more poor than there are rich. So, by gaining the confidence of the poor and getting their vote, any politician can overcome the vote of the wealthy. The poor will always vote to have something that belongs to someone else taken from them and given to the much more deserving and needy amongst us, themselves.
Secondly, the poor are generally not as well educated, so it is easier to lie to them effectively and not have them realize what is happening. So, the Democrats, or any political group that tries to use the poor, has to invest very little to gain a lot.
I’m personally glad to see Quanell X pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democrat Party. We need more voices like his and former NFL champion, Burgess Ownes, who speak out the truth and tell the Black community what is happening. Maybe then, it will be possible for someone to do something that can actually help them get ahead.
America is supposed to be the land of opportunity. Not the opportunity to sit at home and collect welfare checks, but the opportunity to make something of yourself and your life.
It is clear that Blacks, Hispanics and every other minority can compete on a level playing field, as long as the playing field is truly level and they are given the tools they need to compete with. That doesn’t mean being given an advantage. It means being given the same tools that everyone else has.
There have been way too many Blacks who have been highly successful in this country for anyone to say that a Black man or woman can’t make it here. Democrats and others who use race baiting to keep people angry and depressed are not doing it for the benefit of the Black community.
No, but as Booker T. Washington, one of Americas’ great black leaders said, “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Some great insight, from a great man and a great educator. It’s time that people take his words seriously and put the grievances on the table, instead of carrying them in their hearts. If there are problems, and there are, let’s work together to find solutions. But blaming and keeping hatred and anger alive will never solve a thing.
It’s time for the Black community to hear the words of Quanell X, as well as the words of Booker T. Washington, and look at what the Democrats have done to them. Then, it’s time for them to find someone who will truly help their people, not just use them.
