Response to Red 50th

Yes I think those who can reason are slowly coming around. The black community definitely feels that Obama did not have their back and that was long before Trump. But the pride in having an AA president was hard to overlook. He had a lot less support already in 2012. Hopefully now that we have " checked that box" we can get back to common sense on policies and outcomes rather than skin color. The Dems are doing their level best to keep the slaves on the plantation, so escaping that gravity will be tough.

I disagree on inner cities. That is a huge trap that Potus should avoid. An ******* like Rahm Emmanual would love nothing better than for Trump to come in and clean up his mess. He could then blame the ensuing mayhem on somebody else. Chicago police seem to have made the calculation after Ferguson that they are just going to sit back and let the gangbangers kill each other off in a nice purge. I agree. ****-em. Chicago, Baltimore, and other liberal cesspools made their bed and now they get to lie in their own ****.

And, it long past time for the black community to take responsibility for and address their crime and drug issues. Same with Arabs and extremism. The first step to getting better is admitting you have a problem.

I believe eve this is responsive to VegasJen as well.

Regarding the quote above, I have trouble buying this. I'm going to step in to "stereotype land" and say that regardless of education, this is a people that has PROVEN street smarts and survival skills. How do their street smarts not clearly indicate they are being used by the left? They are clearly nothing more than a captive block of voters and no matter WHO they choose on the Dem team, they will remain captive votes and nothing more. They get tossed a ***** Wonka golden ticket in the form of a scholarship or something now and then to keep them engaged, but good grief, if they would just step back for 20 minutes and use their skills that keep them from getting ripped off in a drug deal, that keep them from getting shot, and point them at their condition, their eyes would open WIDE.

I don't know. You think about indoctrination. Black Americans are literally taught from day 1 that whitey is trying to keep them down. They get it at home, they get it in school, they get it in church. Total mind ****. It's asking a lot for people to shake off a life time of propaganda even when there is all this evidence to the contrary.

I still say even in 2020 that 90+% of the black vote goes to whatever socialist/communist democrat runs. I'm hoping for change.

So my first advice and request to you is: NEVER treat blacks or any other minorities as victims. Yes, blacks were enslaved.... 153 years ago. And not just be white southerners, but also by Yankees (as late as 1840 in PA), and by other blacks as well. Yes, that's right. One of my creole ancestors was a slave owner. Had 8 of them. And while we're on the subject of injustices, segregation existed in New York City up to 1945. So Yankees like RIM are ******* hypocrites.

BUT, none of that is an excuse for race baiting and victim narratives today. Blacks have all the same chances as whites or anyone else. Poor whites in W. Va or Hazzard, Ky got no better chances at success than Detroit blacks. Same story for women. Frankly, same story for everyone. 80% of the US population is barely getting by and work like dogs their whole lives just to put food on the table. So spare the pity party.

I also don't expect others to treat blacks with respect if they can't respect themselves first. Because respect is earned, not a racial right. If I go around calling other blacks "****as", them I have debased by entire community and should not expect whites to see me as anything but a ****a.

Just a few pointers...
