The black community has been used and abused by the Democrats for over 50 years now. Every election campaign the Democrats make all sorts of promises to these people. Every election the black community believes them and votes for Democrats almost unanimously. Then literally the next day after the election, the Democrats cast all those promises aside as if they were all a big joke and go straight back to business as usual.

Hillary Clinton will make any and every promise she thinks this community wants to hear leading up to the election in November. If elected, she will not make any more effort to keep these promises than any of the Democrats who came before her. Surely by now the black community has to be aware of this.

We have every reason to believe the black community will vote for whoever the Democrat's nominate in the general election. But I do not understand why they would automatically prefer to vote for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders (two, old white people) in the primaries, unless they are just voting based on directives from some other corrupt leaders in their community.

In South Carolina, we will begin to see if maybe black people are participating in this political revolt that we have going or not. If they line up for Hillary Clinton the way they are expected to, then that will suggest they are not participating and that the Democrat's black 'plantations' are continuing to operate according to business as usual.

She'll insinuate that all whites are still racist.

Just watch.

Maybe she's explain why Black unemployment runs 30-40% and Black on Black murders are so common.
I hope there comes a day when blacks realize how much the Democratic Party has failed them. Because if the Democrats honestly had the solutions to their problems, the black community currently wouldn't be in such sorry shape (after having given the Democrats their unconditional support for the past 50 years).

Thank you for your excellent post.

How is this different than any other politician or political group?

I've seen GOP get the farmer/Midwestern votes by keeping up farm subsidies; I've seen GOP pander to the military veterans groups by promising VA improvements.

Can't begrudge Democrats for finding groups to pander to for votes. Sounds like smart politics to get elected.

If you want to play the blame game, blame the minority groups for believing politician promises.

How are those promises made by the Republicans working out for white folks? Balanced budget, end of national debt, immigration, small government... this alternate universe you folks live in is pretty fascinating.

Hence the revolt against the establishment that we are witnessing right now.

Will black people join the revolt? I hope they do. Of course that means not voting for the establishment candidates. Which for the Democrats means not voting for Hillary Clinton.

From what I've seen and read, just in the last few days, it is apparent that the minority communities are starting to wake up and realize they've been had.
Good for them, I hope they rally together and make informed decisions and cast their votes on who will ACTUALLY address their needs and issues and not continue to blindly vote for broken promises.

If only the non-minority voters would do the same ...

Getting all hopey-changey? Revolt against the establishment, what a joke. I can't think of group more historically gullible to snake oil selling demagogues than white working class voters. All some politicians has to do is create some scapegoat for your troubles and you're all in.

This thread, or should I call it rethread is a perfect example. You know in your heart of hearts how difficult it is for the Republican Party to win a national election without the votes of persons of color and since you can't figure out a way to convince them to vote for your guy, you instead choose to denigrate them, as if that is going to convince anyone that they have any reason to vote for a Republican.

To repeat something that I am sure you know, understand and have been told numerous times. No one is suggesting that only black lives matter, the context of BLM is that their lives matter just as much as any other color lives, they feel that Police get away with unjustified killings of Black Humans without repercussions, you can agree or disagree with that. The all live matters rethoric demeans that message and is quite stupid IMO, you can have all the fun you want with your play on words but the underlying dismissal of their concerns is heard loud and clear, so to ask that group of people who is sympathetic to the BLM message to stand next to you or people like you is wishful thinking.
