If Blacks donâ€™t use their votes better, weâ€™ll continue getting D-list treatment.Â Blacks will have to use their votes more strategically.Â Obamaâ€™s candidacies created processes that placated Blacks enough to get their votes without them seeking or receiving any level of reciprocity.Â Black politicians and activists inside the White House bubble play kingmakers.Â "Nobody can go to the White House unless they stop by our house," boasts Obama-administration insider Rev. Al Sharpton.Â Growing numbers of Blacks are embracing victim status as cover for simple laziness and irresponsible lifestyles.Â People who promote â€śBig governmentâ€ť socialist agendas too often preach false, evil gospels of victimhood.
So why is Secretary Hillary Clinton continuing to dig away? Her book tour was bound to be rocky. With a tin ear for the nuances of young feminists, she titled her book,Â Hard Choices.Â But theWashington PostÂ Â recently published Janet Harrisâ€™ column urging all liberals toÂ â€śstop saying abortion is a difficult choice.Â If you talk like that, Harris says, you are putting the focus on the fetus. Well, we canâ€™t do that! Difficult Choice? Hard Choices? Her very bookÂ Â title is off-key in the pro-abortion chorus. Even worse, Hillary Clinton famously toldÂ Â NewsweekÂ in 1994 (October 31stissue) that â€śabortion is wrong.â€ť
So, letâ€™s be real, pro sports could care less about domestic violence or child abuse (nor should theyâ€”they are not a social welfare agency).Â They are about making money and if they have to pretend to care about these issues to keep the money flowing, then they are willing to make an example out of Ray Rice and anyone else who stands between them and their $10 billion a year revenue.
The immigration issue is now a political football because of the political baggage it carries. Both parties want the votes of the Hispanic population, the most rapidly growing demographic in the country. And this is the same population most sensitive to the immigration issue because most of the illegals within our borders are from Latin American countries.
The Vice-Presidentâ€™s speech was boilerplate material for the union rank-and-file. He extolled the virtues and benefits of organized labor, mentioning at one point that unions built the middle class in this country which in turn has been the key to Americaâ€™s prosperity. Really, Joe? Unions built the middle class? I suppose unicorns built the railroads then? If Big Labor was responsible for so much prosperity, then it must follow that more unions mean more prosperity. No need to go any further than the ground he spoke from; Detroit was once the poster child for the success of labor unions and today an estimated 60% of children in the city live in poverty. If unions produce prosperity, why is Detroit the opposite of prosperous?
