    Jerry McConnell over at Canada Free Press explores the possibility of black Americans not voting for Democrats:

    First let me say that I am all for democratic ideals while I recoil in horror at the thought of living in a democracy. Let me add that I forgive the CFP for its one misstep on the path to good stuff.

    Frankly, I doubt if average black Americans will ever stop voting for Democrats. Their support for Democrats has degenerated into an addiction; neither cold turkey nor slow withdrawal will break the dependency.

    McConnell goes on to cite Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell:


    Indeed, they are two men worth citing. So much so that in April 2010 in a thread about political carpetbaggers I said:

    In a later permalink I added:

    McConnell closes with this:

    Black Conservatives Should be Listened To

    Black Conservatives Should be Listened To

    Black, white, and the colors in-between should listen to Sowell. My only complaint about his take on intellectuals is that he does not explore the arrogance born of a tax dollar income. I call those who are so afflicted Public Trough Intellectuals. They know everything. They will tell you how to cure every evil in the world except how to chase them away from the public trough in higher education.

    Finally, an intellectual without a tax dollar income is no different than the rest of us. Who the hell listens to unemployed college professors; most of us don’t want to listen employed college professors telling us how to save the world. Even if you are charitable when criticizing Public Trough Intellectuals you have to admit that being paid for nothing more than spouting one’s personal views is quite an ego trip.

    Here’s a terrific video of Thomas Sowell being interviewed:

    To High_Gravity: I should have said “I doubt if over 90 percent of average black Americans will ever stop voting for Democrats.” Your barber is obviously in the less than 10 percent.

    To High_Gravity & Two Thumbs: The next time you guys get haircuts ask your barbers how many of their family and friends are voting for a non-Democrat?

    I thought this thread was going to be about where I could score some rock.

    Thomas Sowell. Another great and wise thinker. :) The Vision of the Anointed is an educational read, by him, as are all his books. Wish he would grant more interviews....

    To AquaAthena: Thank you for the serious reply. I’m never certain how many viewers look at the videos I post.
