Sure, liberals consistently support higher funding for education, and conservatives consistently oppose this.

So black people who vote Republican are automatically voting against their own self-interest? Because you are more capable of deciding what is good for them than they are, I guess.

Yeah, liberals have shown amazing tolerance for those who think for themselves.
In fact, your first post is a shining example of that tolerance. Worried that these rap artists who lean to the right are leading youth "down the wrong path", eh?
Why don't you explain to the class what, exactly, the Democrats have done to improve life for young African Americans? What specific policy from the left has led to less poverty, less crime, and more self-sufficiency among the African American community?

I'll make some popcorn and wait for you to answer....

The original post is unbelievably condescending to an entire group of people. Is that supposed to garner those peoples support?

Yes, because calling someone a slave for not agreeing with you is tolerant ..........

Got an example of where I called anyone a slave? No, you don't, so get bent. At most, you'll find a post where I rightly pointed out that the left treats minorities like slaves.

At some point white folks like you are gonna have to wake up and realize that black folks are gonna do whatever the hell they feel like doing and we aren’t taking advice from non blacks no matter how badly you want us to.

Worry about white folks on the Republican plantation.

How the hell would you know? And when did you right wing whites start caring about how anyone darker than a paper bag is treated?

You’re the folks that rejoice anytime you see a cop going upside a black guy’s head.

I find it very interesting that "Hip~Hop Heads" are making reaction videos on YouTube to awesome rock songs and albums...
