Strip away the understandable symbolic pride of seeing the first black American ascend to the presidency, and the Obama era has substantively been far more epic failure for black America than hope and change.

Wilson simply took a page out of the identity-politics playbook mastered by Democrats to run for seat on the community college board in Houston on a reformist agenda. If it took Wilson pretending to be black to get black voters in that election to give his ideas an honest hearing, then that speaks to how tragically successful Democrats have been at manipulating a voting bloc they cannot win anywhere without for far too long.

Therefore, the politically-correct media and Democrats have only themselves to blame for Wilson holding up a mirror to show them their own reflection. The only thing Wilson is guilty of is taking the Democrats’ own sledgehammer and beating them with it.
