One thing about America’s partisan divide and how race comes to play in it that would hardly make any sense at all to an outside observer not familiar with blacks voting Democrat simply because they’ve always done so is that so large a proportion of the black community votes Democrat.
Despite the hellish conditions in inner-city areas run by Democrats for decades and made all the worse by the current soft on crime, anti-police push that Democrats have adopted, around 90 percent or so of blacks continue voting Democrat. It makes no sense, yet it continues to happen.
Or, as Kanye West put it in his song “Ye vs. the People,” “See that’s the problem with this damn nation. All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation“.
Well, though Kanye woke up to that fact years ago, many of his fellow blacks haven’t, or at least haven’t spoken out about it publicly. Now one guy, Charles Barkley, is.
That’s not to say he likes Republicans. But he’s still waking up to the problems posed by and created by the death grip the Democrats have on blacks. Watch that here:
Charles Barkley - “The Democrats & Republicans are both full of s**t..I voted Democratic my entire life & I’m [thinking] man, everybody in my hometown is still poor. The black neighborhoods are still poor. They going to sh***y schools & we been voting Democratic for 59 years.” pic.twitter.com/NiwQqm2fiX— Darvio Morrow (@DTheKingpin) August 30, 2022
