People don't care about actual history. Republicans freed the slaves, Democrats were pro slavery. Especially southern Democrats.
Republicans were for the civil rights movement, Democrats actively worked against the civil rights movement and were pro segregation
Democrats elected, and re-elected, and re-elected, and re-elected etc etc etc Senator Byrd, an ACTUAL FUCKING KKK member.
Let's not get into all the liberals who are obsessed with Al Jolsen cosplay.
The tactic of the Democrat party for decades has been to keep minorities poor and dependent on public assistance, then call Republicans the boogeyman who want's to take their welfare and food stamps away. Their biggest fear is that minorities will wake up to the game and think for themselves. Keep people stupid and dependent is the only thing the Democrats know how to do.
Following NBA twitter gives an interesting window into politics. It's predominately black, more so than other sports twitter and even the non-blacks who cover it feel obliged to black culture. So it acts black as often as it can, but for all its virtue signaling, it still gets in line to feed the establishment it says is pushing it down. The attitude towards China from the NBA perfectly reflects in its attitude towards politics in the US. All ideals are surrendered to the prevailing notion. In the end, they are largely supplicants who play the race game for clicks and team signaling but don't truly believe in anything at all. They read and write in progressive, but vote and buy in Neolib/Neocon.
Just can't get over how bad it looks that an old white man with a terrible record on black issues is attempting to define what it means to be black and that he alone knows what's in their best interest. It's really disgusting when you think about it at all, but I'm sure the modern left will find a way to sweep this, too, away and support Biden.
As disappointing as it is, can't say that I'm all that surprised really. What's even more sad is that black Americans tend to do this type of purity test bullshit to each other.
Democrats have coddled and patronized black Americans for the longest, and have very little respect for the intelligence of black Americans as a whole, in what amounts to the bigotry of low expectations. Every election they roll out the same race baiting tactics to scare or misinform black voters into voting for democratic canadites that have done fuck all for them and their communities. They've regularly engaged in victim mentality identity politics, all while many of those so called "black leaders" profit off the continuous fear mongering and victimization.
Mind you this is the very same party that were against the abolishment of slavery in the USA, and the same party that founded the KKK,
Meanwhile Trump and his administration oversaw the lowest black unemployment rates ever, yet he still gets called a racist, tyrant, nazi or what-have-you.
The day after Covid-19 hit the US, cnn was like “And this is why Bernie’s healthcare plan wouldn’t have worked”, without elaborating. Just a dig at Sanders.
#TheyDidItToThemselves fucking morons. My friend was right. This is going to keep happening all the way to the election. There’s a reason Obama years ago told Biden to stop with the TV interviews. Biden is an— spell it with me: I D I O T
Biden's luck is shit - his agents finally found some avenue to try to smear Reade with using this nonsense about her faking a BA despite getting a JD, and Biden fucks up immediately and washes their hit pieces away.
