    You'd think looking at what Dems have done for blacks the last 180 years would be enough.

    “[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”

    Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”

    Shelby Steele, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, who wrote a column on the subject for The Wall Street Journal over the weekend, told host Laura Ingraham that Democrats and many of the traditional civil rights advocacy groups depend on racial strife.

    “Racism is absolutely their only source of power on the American political scene,” said Steele (pictured above left). “And so they’re just hysterical with happiness when they find racism … The fact is, without racism, they would not exist. They would not be in power.”

    Yes, I'm sure that Democrat leaders are losing sleep over this current GOP administration gaining black votes with their current policies.

    Trump's approval among black Americans is 11%.

    That's like, twice the average for GOP support, isn't it? I thought black support was generally in the 5% range for the GOP. Is that correct?

    That was true based on the information available. Like in horse races, the longshot comes in occasionally. That doesn't prove the odds wrong.

    You don't have a clue what it is, all you know is what your media masters tell you to say.
