At what point did Republicans start caring about Black kids considering a majority of those kids are in red states.
The Republican party seems to argue that its not their problem because all those black people in Florida, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas, Michigan and so on didn't vote for them, but who you vote for means nothing. It is all about who wins..

And your Republican Party has long governed over more Black people than the Democratic Party has.

Every time they construct, operate, and maintain the thousands of Public Health Department Clinics, etc. Who do you think uses those free clinics? Every time a parochial school gives students a need-based scholarship. Who do you think gets those scholarships? Every time community groups and churches sponsor and/or operate food pantries so the low-income can get free food. Who do you think uses those services. Every time a red-stater donates to a religious charity that supports the poor. Literally DOZENS come to mind... St. Vincent de Paul, Samaritan's Purse, Lutheran Relief, Children's Hunger Fund, etc.

Would be nice if the left actually put their money where their mouths are.

And FYI, the highest poverty rates are in Dem-governed inner-cities.

Nothing in bold is conservative/Republica. Its Human and both sides do it. I'd bet I have spent more time in a food Pantry the last week than most conservatives have their entire life.

Put forth an actual policy( not social , government policy) that Republicans support that dems don't, that actually works.

That doesn't seem to be true.










The poverty isn't proportionally in Birmingham, or Atlanta or Detroit or Cleveland, its in rural areas. run by Republicans in red states.

Then you are just wrong.

The party did not endorse or put resources behind Cuomo in a primary. Only Perez did.

You are letting your personal opinion of Perez and Cuomo cloud your argument.

Actually, it is:

Poverty Rates Vary By Residential Area

Cities, even in red states, tend to vote for and are governed by Dems. Atlanta, GA (poverty rate: 24%), and Memphis, TN (poverty rate: 26.9%), for example.

and most polls are wrong or were during the last election. BY this I mean they all seemed to favor the left. This could turn out to be a year the dems don't do as well as usual in an off year election. The important thing is: GOPs get out and VOTE
