I can only assume you’re referring to my position that Democrat policies have had a consistent track record of delivering terrible outcomes for black people in America that goes all the way back the birth of their party on a pro-slavery platform. I think it is reasonable to assert that policies like the Great Society need a lot of time, decades even, to play out and measure the results. Feel free to make the case that the War on Poverty been successful in its stated goals circa 1964.
If my assumption is incorrect and you were referring to some other poster, please say so. If not, what policies of the Republican party do you believe have contributed to the disastrous outcomes we have in so many black communities today?
Keep in mind I’m not making the assertion that most Democrats are racist today. I’m just arguing that they are members of a party that has consistently supported policies that produce terrible outcomes for black people. All the while making empty promises to its constituents that produce very few good outcomes but conveniently keep Democrats in power.
We can start with slavery and end today - right now in America - with 72 percent of black children being born to single mothers and a completely unacceptable number of people living in Democrat strongholds with poverty-stricken, violence-ridden neighborhoods facing very bleak odds of living a happy, successful and productive life. This is up from 20% of black children being born to single mothers in 1960. Are you prepared to argue that this is a good thing? Are you prepared to argue that this is not a direct result of Democrat policy? If so, I’m all ears.
I don’t particularly like those outcomes, but there’s a reason you don’t hear about the names of all the black people murdered on any given day in Chicago. It is not considered news-worthy. There’s a reason everyone knows David Hogg’s name but cannot name any of the dozens killed in Chicago over the last few weeks.
That’s just one demographic too, albeit one the Democrats profess to stand up for.
So I ask you @pfury.
Where are the results I should look to and keep under consideration when deciding whether to vote D, R or something else?
And again, in case you missed it, what policies of the Republican party do you believe have contributed to the disastrous outcomes we have in so many black communities today?
