Former Vice President Joe Biden lately informed MSNBC’s Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP needs voter identification legal guidelines for one cause. Racist Republicans so despise blacks and are so decided to oppress them, that they search to forestall all blacks from voting.
Biden mentioned: “It’s what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don’t want working-class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting.” What Republicans “are all about,” in response to Biden, is the push in some states for voter ID legal guidelines, which Democrats name “voter suppression.” Then-Attorney General Eric Holder characterised the decision for voter ID legal guidelines for instance of “pernicious” racism.
If it’s “pernicious” racism, apparently lots of people didn’t get the memo. Blacks need voter ID legal guidelines, too. A 2016 Gallup Poll discovered: “Though many of the arguments for early voting and against voter ID laws frequently cite minorities’ voting access, nonwhites’ views of the two policies don’t differ markedly from those of whites. Seventy-seven percent of nonwhites favor both policies, while whites favor each at 81%.” This has not stopped the Democrats from turning the authentic concern concerning the integrity of voting right into a full-on assault towards blacks.
Biden, in fact, is a talented veteran at enjoying the race card. Recall how then-Vice President Biden, in 2012, someway turned then-GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s opposition to the 2010 Dodd-Frank monetary reform invoice right into a racial challenge. “(Romney) is going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street,” Biden mentioned at a marketing campaign occasion in Danville, Virginia. “He is going to put y’all back in chains.”
Without the 90-plus p.c black vote, the Democratic Party, on the nationwide degree, is in serious trouble. This explains why they race-bait. Constantly.
Take then-senate candidate Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who, after Hurricane Katrina, mentioned, “(President) George (W.) Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black.”

Hillary Clinton, through the 2016 marketing campaign, complained about what she known as the “school-to-prison pipeline.”
Clinton mentioned: “We’ve seen a significant increase in police involvement in school discipline, especially in schools with majority-black students. We’re seeing an overreliance on suspensions and expulsions. I’m sure many of us remember that horrifying video of the girl in South Carolina being thrown out of her desk and dragged across her classroom by a school police officer. A classroom should be a safe place for our children. We shouldn’t even have to say that, I don’t think. So today I’m announcing my plan to end the school-to-prison pipeline.”
So the cops lie in wait to arrest harmless younger blacks? Not one phrase about private duty?
Actor Denzel Washington, whose final film was a few prison protection lawyer, commented on a prison justice system that many name institutionally racist, leading to an unfair mass incarceration of blacks.
But Washington wasn’t shopping for it. He mentioned: “It starts in the home. You know, if the father is not in the home, the boy will find a father in the streets. I saw it in my generation and in every generation before me, and in every one since. … If the streets raise you, then the judge becomes your mother, and, you know, prison becomes your home.”
As a outcome, Washington mentioned, “So, you know, I can’t blame the system.” In different phrases, the breakdown or, extra exactly, the nonformation of the nuclear black household is a far, far larger drawback than the allegedly racist prison justice system.
But so long as the Democratic Party continues to market itself because the occasion of social justice in an ever-racist America, the occasion thinks it could possibly seize the black vote. Who cares whether or not it is counterproductive for Dems to inform younger blacks that onerous work does not repay? It’s the votes that matter.
Former Washington Post investigative journalist Ron Kessler wrote in his guide, “Inside The White House,” that President Lyndon Johnson, in touting the Civil Rights Act of 1964, mentioned, “I’ll have those (N-words) voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
President Trump, by means of his secretary of training, urges parental selection in faculties. Polls present that inner-city dad and mom need the choice to take away their child from underperforming public faculties, the place a lot of those that graduate can not learn or do math at grade degree. Many graduate with out the abilities employers need. Many of these pursuing greater training should take remedial programs to compete on the school degree.
Yet to Biden and the Democrats, Trump, who needs to do one thing concerning the high quality of training in inside cities, is “racist.”
And “racist” Trump needs to get rid of the competitors for jobs held by unlawful aliens. Research by Harvard economist George Borjas reveals that illegals, particularly unskilled illegals, compete for inner-city jobs and place downward strain on wages. The Americans dropping out are the very black and brown staff the Democratic Party claims they care so deeply about.
But that does not cease the Democrats from using their tried-and-true approach. The race card. Don’t go away residence with out it.
