We know that Blacks are going to vote en masse for President Obama even though he (1) supports abortion on demand, and that would include “black genocide,” (2) endorses homosexuality, a destroyer of families, (3) did not denounce the Democratic Party when the majority wanted to exclude God from its platform, and (4)wants to keep the poor on the liberal plantation where poverty is high, the black family is in shambles, men are emasculated, and unemployment is keeping generations in poverty.
It’s true that many blacks are not slaves to the liberal slave system. They’ve broken free, but this has not stop many of them from supporting the Democrats and their policies of generational dependency. In effect, they’re contributing to economic slavery among their own people.
Wealth transfer subsidies have led to the immobility of the poor, the breakup of the family, and dependency on government programs. Poor people on government subsidies find it difficult to break free because getting a job will mean a loss of benefits and the payment of more taxes. I spoke with a man who owns several businesses. He tells me that many of the people who work for him only work a certain number of hours per week because if they work one more hour, they’ll lose their benefits. They’re trapped.
Star Parker, once trapped in the welfare cycle, writes:
“Thirty-five years of Great Society social engineering have forced the disadvantaged to live under the control of the federal government. Politicians control their housing, food supply, schooling, wages, and transportation. A centralized government makes decisions about their childcare, healthcare, and retirement.”1
So what does it make someone who votes for dependency and those who accept their condition of dependence? The answer is obvious. Slaves.
The Democrats believe blacks are children that need to be coddled and made excuses for. Too many blacks have been conditioned to believe that they can’t do anything until the “Daddy State” steps in to help them. Booker T. Washington (1856–1915) had their kind in mind more than a century ago:
“I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”
If the patient gets well, an entire industry of victimhood will die. This would be the best thing for the black community. Until blacks throw off the shroud of victimhood, they will be at the mercy of “doctors” who treat a cancer that does not exist but that they are paying for with their very lives and the lives of their children.
This is the election to break free. You may never get another chance.
