I just read fantastic column by Thomas Sowell: http://jewishworldreview.com/cols/sowell081616.php3
He is on my list of under-appreciated treasures: http://www.johntreed.com/blogs/john-t-reed-s-news-blog/65671619-the-living-treasures-we-do-not-value-enough
Bill Clinton had a Sister Souljah moment back in the 1992 campaign. We don’t need another Sister Souljah moment. We need about a one-hour ass chewing. Trump hinted at it in his “Democrats are taking the black vote for granted” speech.
Blacks like charter schools. Democrats hate them. And blacks vote Democrat. WTF?
Blacks favor charters schools, or at least the parents who care about their children’s education do. And well they should. A great many of them do a fantastic job and the regular inner city public schools are horrible beyond belief.
Tens of thousands of black parents enter lotteries to get their kids into the charter schools. The movie “Waiting for Superman” was about that. Republicans favor charter schools, but the Democrat teachers unions hate them. So the Democrat party hates them and shuts them down and prevents new ones from opening. They can give blacks the finger like that and not lose their votes. WTF?
The Great Half Black Hope, Obama, did two things right after becoming President: He enrolled his daughters in Sidwell Friends School, a predominantly white school for the DC elite, same school that Chelsea Clinton went to. The other thing Obama did was shut down the most popular charter school in DC.
Super lefty mayor DeBlasio in NYC who is married to a black woman also attacked charter schools right after becoming mayor.
Votes for nothing and Air Force One for free
And Obama got 96% of the black vote and Hillary looks to get a similar percentage. WTF! Apparently political symbolism is far more important to the vast majority of blacks than the education of their children. WTF!!
An argument could be made that any black parent who sends their kids to an inner city public school should lose custody.
Here is one paragraph from the Sowell column:
“Black success is a threat to political empires and to a whole social vision behind those empires. That social vision has politicians like Bill de Blasio and Hillary Clinton cast in the role of rescuers and protectors of blacks from enemies threatening on all sides. If politicians can promote paranoia, that means bigger voter turnout, which is what really matters to them.”
And then there is the contrast between big cities that have had Democrat mayors and city councils for decades—like Detroit— and the big cities that occasionally have Republican mayors. But that’s for another Sowell column.
This is insane. Democrats deliberately hold blacks and their children down and 96% of blacks vote Democrat. WTF!!! They don’t meed a “moment.” They need serious shock therapy of some sort. Black lives only matter to a great many blacks when they are shot by police. Seems to me that black school children lives matter and I see damned little evidence of that in the prominent black leader appearances on TV. I only see evidence that black children matter in the tears of the black parents and children who lost the charter school lottery. Did those crying parents vote for Obama and DeBlasio? Probably. WTF!!!!
