Exploiting the Black Vote

Democrats continue to demand loyalty while doing nothing for blacks.

The Urban Institute released a report on the comparable wealth status of the different racial groups in the Washington, DC, region, and what they found is striking — the wealth of white households is 81 times greater than that of black households. The net worth of white DC area households in 2013 and 2014 was $284,000, while that of black households was just $3,500. (No, that’s not a misprint.) It should be noted that the elected leadership in the DC area has long been dominated by Democrats, as is voter registration.

Meanwhile, on the national election front, early voting tallies reveal that the black vote for Hillary Clinton has been lagging. Barack Obama, who has been out stumping for Clinton, said yesterday, “The African-American [vote] right now is not as solid as it needs to be.” This is a sharp contrast to four years ago, when enthusiasm among black voters was 25% higher than it is for Clinton this election. Why the significant drop in support for the Democrat candidate? Maybe the better question should be, why do a majority of blacks still vote Democrat? And as Donald Trump asked blacks, “What do you have to lose?” in voting for him. Sadly, many blacks have been enslaved to a mindset of perpetual victimhood. And Democrats are the masters who continue to preach the message that salvation can be found only through them, even as they continue to promote government programs that lead only to greater dependency. But don’t worry; Democrats will come calling for votes every election cycle.
