Five Decades of Lies Help Dems Create Monolithic Black Vote

So what is the truth. What is known is Blacks have been monolithically voting for the Democrats for the past sixty plus years and nothing but poverty and despair to show for it. They have literally sold themselves to the Democrat party and have been locked into poverty every since. The party of "we'll take care of you," "Democrats take care of the little guy" fostered the destructive break up of the Black family. You have young Black men killing one another because they had to grow up without fathers to teach them how to be men. Young women who can't tell their children who their father is because she doesn't know and you think more welfare is the answer.

The black community seems to have forgotten that Dr. MLK fought for freedom, not free stuff. They dishonor him with the choices they make. And waste their opportunity to move forward.

One of the main tenets of the Progressive Party of Woodrow Wilson's day was eugenics and the theories of inferior races. Baseball and the military were re-segregated at that time.
It is no accident that Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood advocated abortion. They fit the racist Progressive theory like Cinderella's slipper.
That is the history that is not being taught in our public schools.
The results of the refusal to teach the realities is that we now have a President of the United States who advocates for the legalization of the murder of newborn babies.
The Progressive Party, from their very beginning has always been a dead soul party designed to subjugate the masses while the elite live as royalty.
That is the real history.

You have conservatives who tell you to take responsibility for your own life and work your way out of poverty but you reject that and play the race card because you don't want to give up the poverty checks and stop being victims.
Back during slavery when Blacks were chattel and had physical chains they wanted to be free. But now when you voluntarily,gladly enter into slavery of your own volition then you are truly a slave.

Now, you can reply whatever you want but it will not negate the fact that those young people are still dying and those young women are still lock into poverty.
As recently as 1956, nearly 39 percent of blacks voted Republican in that year's presidential election. After the Civil War, Abe Lincoln's Republican Party easily carried the black vote -- where blacks were allowed to vote. Unwelcome in the Democratic Party, most blacks voted Republican and continued to do so through the early part of the 20th century. It wasn't until 1948, when 77 percent of the black vote went to Harry Truman, who had desegregated the military, that a majority of blacks identified themselves as Democrats.

Yet, as a percentage of the party, more Republicans voted for the passage of...
