    Rich black Republicans are like retired union workers with pensions who vote GOP. They've forgotten where they came from

    . Should a welfare recipient remember where they came from (not saying black Republicans were ever welfare recipients if that is what your next thought might be), but like me for example, where as I don't define myself by my past because I moved on from it long ago. The reason it is accused of black Republicans not remembering where they came from, is because their are those blacks who figure no matter what happens, successful blacks can never leave the struggle, and therefore their success is to be used to help those still left behind in the so called struggle or be chastised for it if don't, and if they don't then they will be branded Uncle Tom's or traitors etc. The reason people can't use their success to help all those who are part of a so called huge struggle, and especially one that is full of characters who might abuse the notion in which has taken place in the past ? How can anyone tell who is not a racist, race hustler, con man or other in life, and this by looking at ones skin color ? You can't, and that is the dilemma facing all groups upon who is truly in a struggle as based upon their choices made in life or if they were actually being mistreated in life as based upon their color, gender or other in life.

    The thing is I agree with a lot of what Republicans say about personal responsibility. So I put myself in the shoes of someone who's successful and then them forgetting where they came from. Doesn't matter if they are black or white anyone voting GOP is either basically stupid or greedy. Or someone who thinks they'd prefer an every man for himself world rather than a we the people country.

    I'm worried about the future world we live in most of you trumpys are selfish seniors who got yours.

    Or you're conned with God guns gays and racism.

    . Yes it is everyman for himself when working towards or achieving his or her personal success in life (nothing wrong with that), and after that achievement is secure to some extent, then they usually give to their fav charities, their family members who might be in need, their bills, healthcare needs, retirement, and so on and so forth. The thing about the black struggle, and it's demands on those blacks who become successful in life, is that these blacks are expected to give to a group based upon it being tied together by race, the supposed struggle of the race, and if not then they are considered traitors to the race.
