Racial reconciliation will never happen in America until those responsible for systematic racism fess up and make it right.
But why would Democrats do that?
After all, their campaign to blame others for their bloodguilt has been a remarkable success.
When George Floyd died, some virtue-signaling dog whistle that only leftists can hear sounded across the country, and Washington Democrats got busy stirring up division. Then they whipped out kente cloths and took a knee. As if they really care.
If Democrats cared, and possessed even a smidgeon of remorse, they would spend the rest of their lives apologizing to black Americans for what their party has done.
Instead, they psychologically project.
They transfer blame to Republicans—the party explicitly created to fight against the slavery Democrats cherished so much they fought a war to keep it.
After they lost the war, Democrats fought tooth-and-nail against every effort to do right by black Americans. Democrats opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan [KKK], performed lynching, enacted segregation, and opposed civil rights.
Leading up to the Civil War, in the 1857 U.S. Supreme Court landmark decision, Dred Scott vs.Sandford, the seven justices who decided slaves were property with no rights were Democrats. The two anti-slavery justices were Republicans.
Nevertheless, Republicans are the bad guys. Alrighty then.
Days after the Confederate Army lost the war, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, assassinated the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, effectively freeing the slaves. Currently, Democrats are attempting to paper over their guilt, hyping “Juneteenth” celebrations, hoping we forget their iniquities.
Furthermore, Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. Republicans’ wholehearted support is the only reason the amendments passed to abolish slavery and grant citizenship and voting rights, respectively.
As soon as federal troops stationed in the south during Reconstruction pulled out, Democrats displayed their “white privilege” by founding the KKK and establishing oppressive codes restricting blacks from owning property and businesses. They also instituted poll taxes and literacy tests to prevent blacks from voting.
Meanwhile, Republicans pushed forward, electing hundreds of black men to southern state legislatures. By 1900, 22 black Republicans rose to leadership in the U.S. Congress. In sharp contrast, it wasn’t until 1935 that the first black Democrat got elected to Congress.
In 1964, a more significant percentage of Republicans voted in favor of the Civil Rights Act than did Democrats. Although Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, was president at the time, he was a notorious racist vulgarian who extensively used the N-word, according to historians and biographers.
Over time and for varying reasons, black Americans wandered away from home and into the arms of Democrats who have very much enjoyed gaining the votes of those they’ve spent most of their history oppressing. Retaining their southern Democrat mentality, Democrats promote institutionalized oppression through dependency on government aid.
Enter: The real Donald Trump.
President Trump, not Barack Obama, pushed for criminal justice reform, passing the First Step Act, reversing unjust sentencing laws the 1994 Crime Bill that Joe Biden helped write and Bill Clinton signed.
Early on, Trump fought for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, signing a February 28, 2017 Executive Order.
Trump, not Obama, created Opportunity Zones, spurring investment into disadvantaged communities prior presidents ignored. His economic policies dropped African American unemployment rates to historic lows—and will drop again when the pandemic passes.
As the old song goes, “The times, they are a-changing.”
Despite Democrats’ efforts to paint him as a racist and blame him for police brutality, and subsequent riots--a recent Rasmussen Reports poll finds Trump’s approval among likely black voters is over 40 percent.
Because African Americans have come to understand that at its core, the Democrat Party platform is evil. Nearly everything blacks are traditionally for, the party’s platform is against. If the Devil ran for president, he’d run as a Democrat. From slavery…to blocking a bill to protect babies from infanticide…and everything in between. Evil.
No wonder Democrats encourage demolishing statues to erase their history.
Yeah, if I were a Democrat, I’d be on my knees too, begging God’s forgiveness.
