And let every black American read about Dr. Carson’s faith, which guides his life and how he raises his children.

Unemployment today among college graduates is 4.5%. Among those with no high school diploma it’s 15%. You can bet that the latter category is disproportionately black.

Our president sends his two beautiful daughters to a fancy private school in Washington, DC. But why can’t every black mother send her son or daughter to whatever school she wants?

The black Caucus is not criticizing Barack Obama because his big government answers don’t work. They are criticizing him for not doing enough of it.

A trillion spent and no new jobs. When Maxine Waters (D-Calif), the Black Caucus jobs spokesperson, was asked what to do, her answer was spend another trillion.

In 2010 American voters fired 25% of Democrats in Congress. But 100% of the 41 sitting Black Caucus Democrats, all with poverty rates in their district above the national average, were re-elected.

When people refuse to learn, when they refuse to look at the truth, they shouldn’t be surprised at the results.
