Oh. My. Word.
Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
This past week in Houston, Texas something astounding happened. Quanell X, the leader of the local branch of the New Black Panther Party, was taking part in a weekly news/opinion segment that he does on Fox News when he called his fellow African-Americans to “truly examine” Donald Trump’s attempt to reach out to the black community!
Mr. X argued that while the African-American community may not like the person making the statements, that didn’t mean that the things he was saying were necessarily wrong. In fact, X argued that quite the opposite was true… Donald Trump was absolutely correct about the relationship between black America and the Democrat Party. It was a truly astounding segment, and one that should be watched by Americans across the political spectrum.
While I likely agree very little with what Quanell X believes politically, it is nice to see someone intellectually honest enough to see through the Democrat smoke and mirrors to the truth. America’s minority communities are being used and abused by the Democrat Party, and those same communities have very little to show for their loyalty.
Donald Trump last week went to Milwaukee because of the rioting behind the police shooting of a young African-American male by a black officer and the city was being burned down in certain parts of the black community by protesters so Donald Trump decided to go to Milwaukee and speak about the conditions of America and why he felt black people should vote for him. He even went on to lay out reasons why he felt we should.
Let me say this to the brothers and sisters who listened and watched that speech. We may not like the vessel that said what he said, but I ask us to truly examine what he said, because it is a fact that for 54 years, we have been voting for the Democratic party like no other race in America. And they have not given us the same loyalty and love that we have given them. We as black people have to reexamine the relationship — where we are being pimped like prostitutes, and they’re the big pimps pimping us politically, promising us everything and we get nothing in return.
We gotta step back now as black people and say, we’ve gotta look at all the parties and vote our best interests.
He spoke directly to black people. And I want to say and encourage the brothers and sisters. Barack Obama, our president, served two terms. The first black president ever. But did our condition get better? Did financially, politically, academically, with education in our community, did things get better? Are our young people working more than what is was before he came into office? The condition got worse. So now we as black people have to do and remember what the honorable Elijah Mohammed said. No politician can save the black community; we’ve gotta do it ourselves.
(…) America’s in trouble. And I want to say to black and white people, only a fool fights in a burning house. This house is on fire.
