A very unusual state of affairs is taking place with black voters across the United States.
When Mitt Romney ran on the Republican ticket for the office of president in 2012, he won 8% of the black vote country-wide. When Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 he held on to the votes of that same 8%.
But two recent polls – Rasmussen and Emerson – are now showing that a whopping 34.5% of Black Americans approve of the job President Trump is doing.
This represents a potential disaster for Democrats, who have always relied on winning the votes of this minority demographic.
There are several significant factors in play which are creating this change:
Black Americans are cottoning-on, if I may use such a phrase, to the fact that though they were represented by a black president for eight years, their lot did not improve under Obama’s administration, in fact, it got much worse. Yet in only three years of a Trump administration, the gains made for black people have been historic.
It is truly unbelievable that in today’s political climate where the liberal media-machine screams about illegal immigrants being kept in cages inside facilities on the border states – cages that were built during the Obama administration – that nothing was ever screamed about the many incarcerated black women who gave birth to babies while literally in chains.
One such woman was Siwatu-Salama Ra, a Detroit mother with no criminal record, who was sent to prison when she was seven-months pregnant for pointing a legally-owned unloaded gun at a three-time female felon when she rammed Ra’s parked car, which contained Ra’s toddler daughter.
She [Ra] delivered her son while incarcerated, her legs shackled during contractions, chained to a bed while a doctor checked her cervix to see how far she was dilated.
“I remember the doctor saying, ‘You guys need to take this off.’ And the officers said I had to keep them on, but that they would check and try to get permission,'” Ra recalled.
By the time the baby pushed through, the shackles had been taken off. And after having the baby she stayed awake for 48 hours, trying to get in every minute before leaving the hospital room and going back to her prison cell.
Too many women have gone through what Ra has.
President Trump’s First Step Act has banned this inhumane practice in all federal women’s prison facilities across the country. One has to ask: why didn’t Obama? Too busy advocating for transgender bathrooms in schools and public restrooms?
America’s black community are not blind to these tragic hypocrisies when they’re paying attention. Many of them are highly aware that they have been used by Democrats, especially over the “women’s health” activism through Planned Parenthood which disproportionately affects black women. More black babies are now aborted than born – 46% of America’s black population has been aborted since the Roe vs Wade Supreme Court ruling of 1973. So much for “safe, legal and rare.”
35% percent of all aborted babies in America are black, a particularly disturbing statistic when one considers that they only make up 13.3% of the population.
It’s no wonder then, that a black rap-artist such as Kanye West, whose new number one album Jesus is King is sweeping up the black community with a message of faith, hope and a new political home within the Republican party.
The die-hard classical music-lover in me just winces out loud when I hear and see Kanye’s jungle-jiggly music pumping out of the Lord’s House all over the United States (if I went to church at all I’d want melodious canticles and hymns to ring in my ears), but I do understand the significant sentiment that Kanye is running with: "loudly celebrate your life, your God, your family and your communities by supporting this powerful president who actually does tangibly care about our lives, our families, our livelihoods and our great country!"
While it’s certainly nothing close to an artistic renaissance, it bodes well for helping along a political one. Democrats have perpetuated the victimology that too many blacks over too many generations have bought into. They want blacks (and others) shackled to the plantation of their party, preferring to see them in the bonds of welfare and dependency – but continually voting Democrat – than see them independently prosper without any aid from the government. Nothing could be more disgustingly cynical, but there it is.
Democrats need the race war to keep manufacturing a false image as being the party of rescue, thereby maintaining their own relevance in the eyes of minority voters; the soft tyranny of low expectations.
What’s becoming abundantly clear is that many, many black voters don’t see themselves as that stupid or helpless, and given that Democrats always were the party of slavery, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that they still see their coloured brethren through that myopic aperture. Even Obama did.
