“Democrats have brainwashed Black Americans!” – Kanye West (Musician/Rapper)

You got that right, Kanye.

“Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.” – Charles Barkley (Retired NBA basketball player and now basketball TV analyst)

You got that right, Charles.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “Kanye West calls out liberals for ‘bullying’ Trump supporters [and] the media’s liberal agenda.”

I applaud Kanye West for not being afraid to state the obvious and brandish the truth.

Are Trump supporters not being bullied in many cases?

Does the mainstream media not have a liberal agenda?

Well there you go.

“Rapper Kanye West [also] blasted Democrats on Friday, claiming the party was effectively forcing black Americans to abort their children.”

‘“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years, bro. … Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children,’ he said during an interview published on Friday.”

“In the same interview, with radio host Big Boy, West said black Americans are ‘brainwashed.’ ‘We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,’ he said.”

Democrats have obviously taken Black Americans for granted for a very long time.

The unwavering 90%+ support of the democrats by Black Americans is definitely unwarranted.

Again…, like Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.”

But the hold the democrats have had on Blacks is starting to show a few cracks here and there.

During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump asked Black Americans, “What do you have to lose by taking a chance on me?”

By my estimation, the only thing they have to lose is their front row seats for when their democrat masters throw their crumbs out to all of the black sheep living on their plantation!

“His comments echoed those of pro-life activists like Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.  In June, King blasted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for suggesting that abortion was a civil rights issue.”

‘“I need for her to understand that abortion is a civil wrong,’ King told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘And of course, if you’re pro-life, you can’t be racist because you’re defending life for the most defenseless population on the planet — the little babies in the womb,’ King said at the time.”

“The pro-life movement has long pointed out the disparity between black and white abortion rates in the U.S.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2018 that for 2015, ‘abortion rates and ratios remained 1.5 and 1.3 times higher for Hispanic compared with non-Hispanic white women and 3.6 and 3.5 times higher for non-Hispanic black compared with non-Hispanic white women.”

“At one point during the interview, West also claimed that it was racist for people to tell him he couldn’t support Trump. ‘The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race,’ he said.”

Kanye’s absolutely right here.  It’s racist and un-American.

Why are Whites, Hispanics and Asians “allowed” to think for themselves, while Blacks are somehow expected to conform to some predetermined way of thinking or be shunned and labeled Uncle Toms and the like?

“West drew some criticism last year after he openly embraced [President] Trump and was seen sport[ing] a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.”

Like Kanye said, “Come on, man. This is a free man talking.”

America is the land of the free, and we’re still allowed to believe what we want, think what we want and say what we want, even though the democrats are making their best effort to change all of that.

The thought police are out there and ready to go on active duty if, God forbid, we put the democrats in a position to let them loose.

Has Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream” come true?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

I sincerely believe that time has arrived.

You’re always going to have exceptions to everything, but for the most part, I think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “dream” has become reality.

I believe today, for the most part, people are judged by their actions and by what they say rather than the color of their skin.

A problem we face today, however, is that some really don’t want to be judged by their character.  They prefer to use the color of their skin as an excuse or as a ticket to special considerations and allowances.

They prefer to use the color of their skin as a wedge between people of their skin color and people of other colors, either for fame, power, money or a combination of the three.

They say, “The meaning of King’s monumental quote is more complex today than in 1963 because ‘the unconscious signals have changed,’ according to the historian Taylor Branch, author of the acclaimed trilogy “America in the King Years.”

What does that mean?

It sounds to me like the people who would prefer to use the color of their skin for their own purposes are trying to tell us that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words mean something other than what anyone who understands English understands them to mean.

It’s a form of racial “spin” or racial propaganda.

Bernice King doubts that her father would really seek to ignore differences.

“When he talked about the ‘beloved community,’ he talked about everyone bringing their gifts, their talents, their cultural experiences,” she says. “We live in a society where we may have differences, of course, but we learn to celebrate these differences.”

Yes we do celebrate cultural differences, Bernice, but excuse me if I reiterate that your father’s words, in this case, were words of inclusion and racial “blindness,” just like the “blindness” of justice.

It’s obvious that Bernice King makes her living off of her daddy’s coattails.  It’s definitely not in her best interests to acknowledge any level of racial progress.

“Unfortunately race in American history has been one area in which Americans kid themselves and pretend to be fair-minded when they really are not,” says Taylor Branch, whose new book is “The King Years: Historic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement.”

Well, I suppose we all can’t be as enlightened as you Mr. Branch.  But how do portend to know what “Americans” are supposedly kidding themselves about?  You’re obviously making quite a nice living off of your books about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Like I mentioned before, money is one of the reasons people keep preferring to drive wedges between the races.

The quote is like the Declaration of Independence, says Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, a conservative think tank that studies race and ethnicity. In years past, he says, America may have needed to grow into the words, but today they must be obeyed to the letter.

“The Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal,” says Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity. “Nobody thinks it doesn’t really mean what it says…”  “King gave a brilliant and moving quotation, and I think it says we should not be treating people differently on the basis of skin color.”

Many others agree. King’s quote has become a staple of conservative belief that “judged by the color of their skin” includes things such as unique appeals to certain voter groups, reserving government contracts for Hispanic-owned businesses, seeking more non-white corporate executives, or admitting black students to college with lower test scores.

In the latest issue of the Weekly Standard magazine, the quote appears in the lead of a book review titled “The Price Was High: Affirmative Action and the Betrayal of a Colorblind Society.”

“Considering race as a factor in affirmative action keeps the wounds of slavery and Jim Crow ‘sore and festering.’ It encourages beneficiaries to rely on ethnicity rather than self-improvement to get ahead,” wrote the author, George Leef.

The RightWingNews.com blog added, “The idea that everyone should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin” in their list of “25 People, Places and Things Liberals Love to Hate.”

“Conservatives feel they have embraced that quote completely. They are the embodiment of that quote but get no credit for doing it,” says the author of the article, John Hawkins. “Liberals like the idea of the quote because it’s the most famous thing Martin Luther King said, but they left the principles behind the quote behind a long time ago.”
