Professor Carol Swain details the Democratic Party’s sordid treatment of Blacks down through history in the video above.
Their mistreatment has continued since the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. The mistreatment has taken a different form, which I characterize as ‘mock benevolence.’
Democrats champion lavish, vote-getting welfare programs which have bred dependence on the state and broken up Black families. In spite of the destructive consequences of Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” programs, Democrats have doubled down in their mock benevolence by expanding the programs which have collectively cultivated social pathology of shocking proportions in the Black community.
As a way of mitigating the astronomical crime rates within the Black culture, Democrats aggressively promote human abortion through their surrogates, Planned Parenthood. Some 53% of Black babies are aborted, which has reduced the birth rate in the African American community below replacement levels.
How utterly heartless.
The Black community knows that education is their ticket out of the ghetto. But even on this front, Democrats are obstructionists. African-American parents love charter schools and school choice, because their kids perform better in them.
Teachers’ unions despise them, because they reduce their clout.
Teachers unions are even more important supporters of the Democratic Party than Blacks, and so Democrats block the educational reforms Blacks beg them for.
The Wall Street Journal wrote about Democrat’s latest efforts to thwart their Black constituents in the most liberal state in the union, California:
“As union schools lose students (and thus taxpayer funds) to charters, the school board has become even more reactionary. Last month the board voted to support three bills before the state legislature in Sacramento that aim to limit autonomy for charter schools. One would prevent charters from appealing rejections by local school boards to county and state boards. The appeals process is one reason charters in Los Angeles have been able to expand despite school-board resistance.”
The Democrats’ history of antagonism towards Blacks continues. Mock benevolence defines their ‘outreach’ to a community decimated by liberalism.
