If Blacks started voting Republican, would the Dems finally focus on their actual problems?

    It's called political ignorance.

    Is that why we see the rioting today - complaints about no path out of poverty or the ghetto? Is all that because of the magnanimous stewardship of the federal government?

    1) Created jobs
    2) Subverted the Democratic attempt to enslave them in a circle of poverty

    The list goes on .... but I'm not here to do your research for you. Go see how much of the civil rights program is a direct result of the Republican party ...

    and then come back with your hat in your hand.

    Democrats control urban areas which are largely populated by Blacks. See crime results in Black neighborhoods. See Job Training and correlate to Black unemployment. Compare Black Owned businesses to non Black Businesses. Great Socitey was supposed to change all of that. I am not saying abandon these goals. I am saying that the architects and executioners of the program need to be held accountable since the numbers got worse, not better.

    Tell that to all the blacks who have climbed the ladder in the last fifty years.

    In every criteria, black America is far better off now than back then.

    We have problems there to take care of, but first we have to excise the Trump revolution and alt right, which are the true dangers to the American dream.

    I want to be sure you own up to that ... before I destroy it.

    So...the new Republican position is that black voters are ignorant

    They already know that is how the party feels and that they pander to racists
